    apparently this applies to preorders too

    this is perfect for me... seeing as games will then cost 15... and i have a 15 dollar gift card [​IMG]

    of course is still have a problem getting the actual 3DS( no funds) :/ so this is still a no no for me


    still a heads up to those who are getting one from amazon

    Well a game, not all your bundled purchases.

    Seems like a pretty good deal though, you could pick up a 3DS + SSFIV or Samurai Warriors for like $265. Not bad at all.

    well yeah its still not bad

    the running total of all is around 290 with one game(not including shipping, but i get that free) without the 25$ off


    it will add up though if you dont have prime

    It sounds like if you have already pre-ordered a 3DS from Amazon, this won't work for you.


    "• If you do not purchase the qualifying item when the promotion is in effect or during any preceding pre-order period, if applicable, the promotional credit will not apply. "

    Crap. Then screw that. I am not keen on buying any of the games anyway.

    I'm waiting for Zelda, SMT and Layton.

    Actually, that verifies that it will work for pre-orders, since it specifically says "preceding pre-order period".

    That said I pre-ordered back in January along with SF and monkey ball. Now I can throw in something else for 15$ and have three games [​IMG] Probably Star Wars, I was on the fence about that. Thanks for the heads up [​IMG]

    EDIT: Proof it works on preorders -

    Order a 3DS, Get a $25 3DS Game Credit
    Order a qualifying 3DS console and receive a $25 promotional credit toward a selection of 3DS games. The promotional credit will be applied to your Amazon.com account within 2 days after your order ships, and you will receive redemption instructions via email. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com. This offer will be extended to all existing pre-orders. Limit one promotional credit per customer.

    Just verifying they are applying it to previous pre-orders.

    You also apprently get a 10$ credit for ordering a game. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_355667882_2?ie=UTF8&docId=1000668621&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=0SE8EA97B37V7AKBVGMN&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=1291872702&pf_rd_i=B002I0IVC4) I highly doubt you can combine them, but that would be really cool. A 3DS game for 5$. Of course, a 3DS game for 15$ is awesome too. This just made my day that I can get a 3rd game now.

    Could you buy the 3DS and a game then buy another game with the $10 credit off? If so that's like a 3DS and 2 games for $290. Not bad considering there's like only two good looking launch titles (I think Samurai Warriors Chronicles is launching with the NA release and then there's SSFIV. Or Rayman if SW isn't your cup of tea).

    I had pre-ordered Ridge Racer 3d from Amazon and today they sent me e-mail giving me $10 bucks off the next order of any 3DS game.
    This is good till June. They called it a digital discount.

    So for pre-orders, you just order a qualifying item right?

    I thought about ordering it from Amazon, but wasn't sure when it would arrive.

    I just played it safe and pre-ordered it at the store. I'm getting it at midnight, so I'm satisfied.

    Hey, that's what I'm choosing as my free accessory. Everything else looks so boring and useless...and never heard of CTA's quality in things like styli and screen protectors.
