Super Smash Bros Ultimate $62 (Free Shipping) @ Amazon AU
Releases 7 December
Matching the Gamesmen eBay which has now expired.
I love amazon.
I remember how everyoned hated the Amazon deals and selection when it first came out. Then hated it some more when the shitty GST included <$1k and Amazon blocked aus purchases outside of .com.au
Since I've already pre ordered this through them, it will automatically drop in price right?
What if the price goes up again before release?
It takes the lowest price.
@ChillBro: Nice. I pre-ordered at $69 a couple of weeks ago with 11% cashback
Don't forget cashback via Cashrewards or Shopback.
Preordered using the APP15 discount so should get it for $47 but also won't get it on release date
This is quite the pickle lads
What’s the pickle? You’re getting it for $47. That’s great. If you’re so concerned about the release date, sign up for a prime trial and change it to the free expedited shipping.
I don't think I'd get it on release even with expedited shipping since I'm 5 hours from a capital city.
I get games release day in Townsville with expedited.
This is why I'm not pre-ordering online.
The midnight release won't be happening.
Had the same thing with diablo 3 on switch, dropped to $47, and got it on release day.
Should I wait? 1) Cashrewards putting the rate back up? 2) waiting for Black Friday?
I didn't use the APP15 code when it was available because I didn't think it would have expired so quick :(
You can cancel anytime before shipment so if you're on the fence just order and then work it out later. They don't charge you until it ships. Doubt black Friday will do much for preorders but if it does drop you'd get the lowest price at Amazon automatically anyway.
Now we just need an amazing black friday switch deal
Do JB price match preorders? They don’t seem to have a record keeping system to note what prices the games were at for preorders so no locking in prices.
Is this likely to be much more expensive via eshop?
I'd be keen to know the price too. Trying to stick to digital for my Switch.
Why all digital for Switch? Just out of curiosity. No resale on games, extra money for microSD storage and games are rarely cheaper than their physical counterpart
Eshop is more expensive but if you're going out to some place and bringing your switch, you don't have to store and carry the cartridge, don't have to worry about losing them, you don't have to go get off your couch and fumble around / undock the switch to swap out games if you want to play mario party instead of smash bros.
My friend does all these but I don't, which is why I'm still buying cartridges so it depends on your style.
Right on all counts above. The main reason is I travel for work a lot. I remember having an extra box for all my cartridges if I was going on a trip with my gameboy / DS etc and it becomes unmanageable. Essentially it's a matter of convenience. Not having to physically change carts when it's sitting in the dock etc is a nice bonus too.
Regarding resale - I usually hang on to my games so I don't resell until much later anyway.
MicroSD was an expense but not a huge one. I haven't bought extra controllers or anything like I usually would.
Regarding cost, eShop cards go on sale at EB / JB a couple of times a year for up to 20% off. So far I have bought a bunch of those each time to cover the games I know I will buy. Waiting for another one now though. The 20% brings it within spitting distance of a discounted cartridge like this, $10 difference is not the end of the world for me.
It's $89.95 on the eShop
And you'll get double the gold points (10% instead of 5%) if you pre-order, so should be $9 back in credit to use on the eShop.
89 on eShop, it gives you double points though if you preorder
With 8% cash back this was cheaper than a 5% code with 1% cashback on Ebay? Could you cancel the preorder on eBay
Already ordered through Amazon Au but love the way they reduce your order price if reductions happen.
And yes, entered through Cash Rewards!
How does Amazon drop the price? I pre-ordered at $67.99 but I can see it's $62. When do they adjust the ordered amount?
Edit: nevermind takes a bit of time to reflect
Amazon.com.au's price for not-yet-released items sometimes changes between the time the item is listed for sale and the time it is released and shipped. Whenever you pre-order an item eligible for Pre-order Price Guarantee, the price we charge when we ship it to you will be the lowest price offered by Amazon.com.au between the time you placed your order and the end of the day of the release date. A pre-order price guarantee message will appear on your Order Summary during the checkout process. If you use 1-Click ordering, the pre-order price guarantee will be automatically applied. The order summary in Your Account will reflect the lowest price within 24-72 hours of the price change if your product has not yet shipped. After shipment, the difference between your order price and the lowest price by the end of the release date will be refunded to your account automatically, typically within 24-72 hours following the release date.
My preorder has already changed price
My preorder price has also changed. I preordered at $69 and it now shows $62.
Also ordered Let's Go Pikachu + Poke Ball Plus for $118 and that was changed to $99 also. Received last Friday.
@JediJan: As buying as a gift I have also pre-ordered the Super Smash Bros Ultimate hardcover game guide (also released 7th December). These game guide books usually cost $20-$30.
When I pre-ordered it was $18.80, now showing as $17.11 on my pre-order.
Any chance big w/target/jb hifi will do $62 on launch day?
Yes. Dunno if they will though.
I prefer just going to one of the store pick it up in person on 7th Dec but I'm afraid the price will go back up to ~$69 by then.
Doubt they will. They haven't done 62 for any game released recently. Have all done $69 for first 3 days and then back up to $79
Thanks, in that case I think I'll buy from Amazon.
edit: damn, price went up, $68 now…
Not sure many people realise but you need to pay an extra six bucks to get it on launch day unless you have prime so it's only a dollar difference to pick it up if launch day is that important to you.
This is 2018 and Nintendo still makes money out of super Mario. By far the best commercial success ever.
Dude it's 2018 and Spyro and Crash Bandicoot remaster are top of the charts
Yes … Closely followed by Pokemon.
First time using cashrewards to buy this; will my cash back amount change?
this will be my first time buying a pre-ordered game online. does this ship on the 7th? or does it ship days before then arrives on the 7th.
Normally the latter, but IIRC they try and gauge shipping times based on your postcode, so sometimes people get the game a day before release, and sometimes the courier/AusPost screws up and you're left waiting several days after release…
It depends on the Delivery Option you picked at Checkout.
If you have Prime, pick Expedited Delivery and item will ship out 1~2 Days before Release Date.
Cool thank you for the responses.
I also pre-ordered the Let's Go Pikachu + Poke Ball Plus for $118 (paid only $99) from Amazon Au. Release date was 16th November and it arrived the same day, so it looks like they aim to deliver on release days. When you make a order it usually shows you the delivery estimate day. I took advantage of the free 30 days of Prime so no shipping costs. They offer tracking also.
Damn! I knew I forgot to make a purchase on something. Fingers crossed that another deal comes around
Order just shipped out. Lets hope I receive mine tomorrow.
