Diablo 3 (Digital) - $69 Pre-Order from Blizzard's Website Battle.net (Read Guide)

602

I saw this on Whirlpool as posted by svale. Its a way to avoid paying the regional price gouged price of $79.95AU with afew simple clicks.

"OK, for all those wondering how to purchase it in SGD. See below…

  1. Log into https://us.battle.net/account/management/get-a-game.html
  2. Note that the balance on the right-hand side most likely reads in AUD, as does the price of Diablo III
  3. Click Transaction History > Balance History
  4. Select US Dollars from the currency drop-down menu
  5. Click Games & Codes > Buy Digital Games
  6. Diablo III should now be listed in $90 SGD (i.e. $69 AUD)
  7. Continue ordering as per usual. The game version is Global, so you're not getting a Singaporean version here.

No idea how long you'll be able to do this for, so get in quick"

    C'mon, I don't think anyone would be silly enough to pay $79.99 AUD for a digital download code.

    +1 too from whirlpool!

    I get an error with my 28 degrees mastercard :(

    •  

      Try again? Worked fine with my 28 Degrees.

      •  

        Interesting, I normally put "MR" in front of my cardholders name because thats what is on my card.

        Never had a problem until now, I removed MR and it worked fine.

        Awesome

    •  

      Worked on my 28 degrees also, make sure you select Mastercard at the top.

      Why is everyone using 28 degrees? Is it some kind of bargain as well?

      •  

        It is meant to have no conversion fees for international purchases.

        Im a student, so not sure id be eligible for one.

      • +1 vote

        As mentioned, it has no annual fees, currency conversion fees or international transaction fees.

        Most CC's have at least one of these fees making overseas purchases expensive.

        •  

          My NAB Gold one doesn't have fees?

        • +2 votes

          I believe that's only NAB Gold debit card though. The advantage of 28 Degrees is that it's a credit card.

        •  

          I see, thanks!

  •  

    reckon the box and disk is worth the extra $10?

          Why did I get 6 negative votes? I answered the guy's question. He asked how I got that price. I logged onto WowHD, that was the price I saw advertised, and I placed the order. It's that simple. I didn't use any "tricks" of any kind, no vouchers or coupons or store credit.

        Been buying from there for about 2 years now. Matter of fact, about al 3 guys at work do.

    For those of you who's been waiting for a SC2 deal, you can use the same method and get it for $53 (SGD 69)

    For those willing to risk it, you can look up the RAF 12 month method. Cost me $28 AUD.

      Yep, good price. I would have ordered from there, but the silly gamer in me can't wait the 1-2 weeks to play. :-P

      •  

        I don't think it will take 2 weeks to deliver.

        • +1 vote

          Depends where you are, how the posties are feeling, whether or not it's a full moon…

          I've ordered countless items from ozgameshop before. Most take around 10 days; some up to 2 weeks.

    •  

      Are these RMAH locked to US or Aus? Or does it only depend on where you register it from?

      •  

        The RMAH region lock is based on the region of your Battle.net account. Doesn't matter where you get the game from.

        •  

          this is from the ozgameshop site

          Please Note: This is the European version of the game. Diablo III will not be region locked, you can select any region to play in but RMAH will be region locked..

      •  

        So this would be RMAH locked to Europe?

        •  

          No, RMAH locked to your Battle.net account region. Best to rely on region information from Blizzard, not ozgameshop or any other retailer.

  •  

    Bought mine from us.battle.net for $60.02 I think its fair.

    •  

      I'm assuming your account is US based?

      •  

        Simply create a new account with a US address, wola $20 off.

          Apparently that's America's equivalent of whatever it is. :D

  •  

    Any suggestions on where I can get it in a box on release date?

    •  

      Your local store which sells games. JB, Harvey Norman, Dick Smith to name a few.

    •  

      i know JB has it for $79.
      Think i will eng up getting it from there, id prefer a boxed product for an extra $10

      •  

        No chance of collectors editions still being available??
        There wont be any stock issues will there?

          Last offer I saw for a CE was this: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/67081

          If you find it anywhere between now and launch you're paying at least 40-60% more than RRP, which was around $130-140 for pre-orders.

  •  

    If you are really interested in purchasing Singapore copies, I'll say purchasing from here, http://qisahn.com/preorder_info?id=381.

    Just need 4 friends to purchase together and it's SGD $65.90 per piece. I'm sure OzBargainers will work it out, somehow.

    •  

      Scratch that, Aussies can't do a bank transfer to a local Singapore account. I'll just roll solo.

  •  

    Just bought this and am downloading the game client at the moment. Thanks OP!

  •  

    I'm having problems with the State/Region/Province box on ordering, it keeps asking me to fill out all fields but it won't accept WA, W.A, Western Australia or Australia, tried logging in and out and a different browser..

    Edit: working now, just had to edit my billing information.

    •  

      I'm still having that problem. Even after editing my billing information. Now it just says:

      An error has occurred.
      To complete this transaction, please contact Blizzard Customer Support. Alternatively, you may select another form of payment.

      Anyone else experiencing the same? Also, thought I'd be smart and top up my account with $70 thinking I could use that as a form of a payment since CC was not working - not so, seems you can ONLY use either a credit card for payment. Now I got $70 in my Blizzard account which is probably stuck lol

      •  

        Wow that sucks.. mine worked first time after updating my account information :/

    Cheers, grabbed one! 69.50 on my CC statement

    ozgameshop for me. by the time it arrives there will be a patch and new gfx drivers to fix fucked up shit.

    •  

      +1. Much smarter to wait a week or two and let them iron out all the initial bugs.

  • -2 votes

    i'm sorry to be a party pooper but 90cents more here and you also get physical copy.. shipped as well (Tried Vic postcode)

    http://www.dungeoncrawl.com.au/p-4533-diablo-3-iii-pc.aspx

    •  

      That's the European version, by the way. Which you can obtain cheaper, as mentioned above, for $52.99 from ozgameshop. All Dungeon Crawl are doing is getting it from them (most likely) and reselling it to suckers for a huge profit.

    •  

      European and you can't play on release….

      You can preload the battle.net version right now and play it the second its released.

      You will be waiting a long time if you get a physical copy.

    Due InStock:DURING WEEK COMMENCING MAY 21

    for 90 cents less i can play it a week earlier?

  • +1 vote

    Thanks for this, been waiting for a cheaper option that still allows me to get it on release day.

  •  

    For those who cant wait for Diablo 3 try playing Skyrim. That game is endless.
    And damn addictive !

    •  

      If they had a demo I might try it. I'm not going to go out and buy it without having ever played an Elder Scrolls game before.

      •  

        You can't have a demo for an open world unless you put invisible walls in the game.

        •  

          WoW has a demo, and that's how I got into that game.

        •  

          Are you serious? LOL

          WoW has a trial version, not a demo.

          Elder scrolls is not an MMO

          A trial version for elder scrolls would not work.

          The only reason you think it might work is failing to understand what the game is.

    •  

      except harvey norman, is taking its time…..3 weeks…still not delivered…

  •  

    Awesome!, just bought it

  • -3 votes

    Seems like there are much better deals as stated above. (WOW HD and ozgameshop)

    •  

      I don't think this is a fair comparison, nor is it worthy of a negative vote.

      This is a digital download that lets you play on the day of release. Yes, what you linked to is cheaper, but you are ordering a boxed copy that you will not receive until days/weeks later. If you're happy to wait, then good for you.

    I'm getting this message as well:
    "An error has occurred.
    To complete this transaction, please contact Blizzard Customer Support. Alternatively, you may select another form of payment."

    :(

    •  

      People on Whirlpool are reporting the same error, even when purchasing at the full $80 price. May be a general site issue.

      •  

        Oh OK.

        Thanks svale.
        I'll try again later fingers crossed.

        •  

          I got it working
          I GOT IT WORKING! :D (sorry for shouting, I'm just very happy) teehee.

          I had to fiddle around with my account as well.
          Not exactly sure how I did it, but I think it was the following:
          1) Go to the battle net website
          2) login
          3) click the "account" tab up the top of the page
          4) go to transaction history, then balance history
          5) change to Mexican currency
          6) purchase for 90 SGD
          :) :) :)

          I think the reason it was down for a while, is that it looks like they've added the ability to buy a digital copy of the game with Paypal (as well as Mastercard & Visa) & they've made it a bit more difficult to purchase with foreign currency (when compared to your account region setting that you set when you created an account with battle net…)

          Hope this helps anyone else having troubles!

          PS: Spathy - You're a legend! Thanks :-)

        •  

          I also had the same problem funkay, it seems that the payments were down yesterday.

          I completed the instructions as per the first post and it works now.

    •  

      I had the same, had to remove credit card and readd it and it worked.

  •  

    Thanks, paid $69 for it, can't wait for May 15 :)
    This is the cheapest I've seen for digital download - personally I couldn't care less about boxed version unless it is a CE

  •  

    Bought mine and paid $69. I don't trust those cheaper websites.

  •  

    Nice.

  •  

    I'm assuming this doesn't work anymore?

    Clicking on the 'Other Currencies' gives me a popup saying currencies cannot be converted

    EDIT: Got it working, awesome!
