Considering Amazon is charging $4 less for TvC and offering a $10 credit for any future video game purchase, and offers free shipping at a much lower threshold (low enough for TvC alone to reach it), I'd say it's a slightly better deal on Amazon.

Incidentally, that $10 credit and slightly lower price happens a lot with preorders on Amazon.  Enough that it's not worth posting here every time.

I wish there was an easy way to see what games offered pre-order bonuses. I'd buy a lot more sooner that way to save the dough. I wish they had an app or something that showed all of the current deals on the titles in your wishlist.

So does that mean it will be in the January NDP? That's a lot of copies from just one store. Imagine if this is happening all over the country. Conduit will become a MILLION STELLAR!!!1

Other websites do that for you.  I check lightningdeals.com regularly.  It's not organized, but just search the page for "game" and you'll find all the deals.  The associated lightningdrops.com tracks prices over time, so you can see if the deals are really special or not.

Amazon.com has it for $46.99 with FREE SHIPPING.

The extra $2 is probably worth it for the free shipping. Does Frys offer free shipping? I've never ordered from them, so I don't know...

but amazon doesn't charge tax.
so it would be cheaper on Amazon if you don't mind the wait.

If I didn't post, no one would've bothered to check.  This is what's amazing.

You have to charge tax if you have operations in a state, IIRC.

Or you're shipping to New York.

I've never seen a Fry's anywhere. I live in Michigan, so I guess they don't have any stores in my state.

No tax from Amazon for me! HUZZAH!

I haven't heard of Fry's before I started frequenting this website, so there probably are none around where I live. It's a shame, because it looks like a good store.

Fry's could be a West coast thing. Though they are few and far between here. The nearest one to Portland when I lived there was 45 mins away and the closest one to where I live now is 30ish.

got an email this morning from amazon, apparently all of today's (16 Feb 2010) gold box deals will be for the wii. the first one is a game called "walk it out" so i am not entirely hopeful about this venture...

UGGG, looks like is Wii Soccer Mom day.  A bunch of cheesy music, dance and work out games.  Pass.

However, could be a good deal on a Wii charger coming up, here is the clue:

Upcoming Deal
Charge 4 Wii Remotes with one dock.

yeah, looks like the amazon wii deals are all non-games (from what I've seen). The current one is Active Life Extreme Challenge.

I ordered the Wiimote charger because my rechargeable batteries are all going out and I'm tired of buying new batteries. Only $30 with the deal.

The Biggest Loser sold out in under 10 minutes!  And it wasn't even that great of a deal--maybe like $10 off the normal price.  The games might be for you or me, but someone sure was buying them.

more deals I saw today:
(at Amazon.com)

I know NFSHP2 is better on PS2 due to it having no slow down in that version, but because I am committed to Nintendo.

LOL, I didn't know that bots could be fanboys too. Next thing you know they will be starting flame wars.
