Damn, so no Spider-man then. Well that neuters the deal quite a bit. I was gonna grab Spidey and Godfall and come up with a third. Guess that's a no go for me. Just Spidey for launch then.

That being said, you can still do the unscrupulous thing and buy 3 and return the ones you don't want and still get the discount, according to that SD thread.

Or you can order 3 copies of the same game on the website, and immediately cancel 2 of them.

Target's buy-2-get-1-free sale is live.

It does include some preorders, including Assassins Creed: Valhalla (and only $50, even on the PS5!), Godfall, Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and the PS4/Xbox versions of Balan Wonderland (no dice on the PS5 there).

You were misinformed. I did it twice this weekend.

Just curious...it's been a long time I bought a physical copy of a New Game but how long does a New Release actually get delivered from Amazon? We have Prime and saw this morning my ETA for AC Valhalla is like November 18-19....and the game comes out officially today

That's probably a correct estimate. Amazon doesn't really do the whole "deliver by release day" anymore. Not even those that are newly released.

Well this seems familiar. Got in PS5 in my cart at Walmart and am checking out, but it's having trouble taking my payment...

And now it's out of stock. That makes sense.

Edit: Sorry, wrong thread! Apparently I got bored while waiting and jumped threads.

I thought about cancelling the order on Tuesday and just DL the digital since it was still showing PO available even then...but on Amazon got a warning...."Order Being Processed...Cancellation might not stop shipment"...so I didn't...yesterday afternoon it still wasn't showing even being shipped.....I had to order something for work on Amazon and went with two day delivery.....well guess what...my Game is now showing Saturday Delivery (instead of the original estimated 18th and 19th) and shows..."Two Items Being Shipped in Same Box"...so sounds like no big deal or rush on sending out a Game...unless you just happen to order something else and then they can throw that in......geeeee....

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Has anyone used...Checkout.com....for CC transactions?.......I was going to buy a Code off CD Keys but says pay thru Checkout.com...we don't use PayPal after someone did manage to use my AMEX thru EBay and PayPal couldn't give an explanation on how. Never used a "Middle Party" for CC Transactions before....

I was limited to one on the physical card as well. I found that I was able to do 3 separate orders for the digital cards with no issues. Iíll buy a 4th from GameStop for 19.99 on Black Friday since I have my 5 dollar monthly coupon and will hit the 3 year limit on game pass.
