Anyway someone can PM me the secret code? Or do I just have to wait around until the site is opened up for more signups? I'm not in any discord group.

Okay, let’s side step the rigatoni era talk for a second.

Amazon just emailed me saying that my MARIO odyssey preorder from January should be shipping by nov 1?!

Really?

So I have to go buy this at BallFart tomorrow and then return my amazon copy when it finally gets here?

Boo amazon.

Same. Because I'm afraid that everyone who has a Switch is going to buy this game though, I'm going tomorrow before work. I gotta have this game this weekend!

I never have success with this. They scan in the new copy and then say it doesn’t match the UPC code.

waiting for that clown that'll call you a liar because UPCs are the same.

I don't even know if that guy posts anymore, can't even bother to remember his name.

I have heard of Walmart using different UPC codes than others but it is even different codes for knew shipped through web orders vs in store copies?

I was going to do the same.

They accept returns for web orders at stores, I can’t imagine they have separate UPCs for their online warehouse vs in store. Although I can’t tell you for sure.

whew Literally just got a shipping notice from Walmart, and a charge for the game. Both orders have been processed, and should arrive here tomorrow. Pull through, WM!

It is completely YMMV, it’s never worked once for me, though.

Anyone know if shoppers drug mart's Super Mario Odyssey $99 is a typo? or is that really the price? When everywhere else has it for $79?

Someone else had posted that a Shoppers phone CSR said that it’s the correct price, but it’s gotta’ be a placeholder price. Flyers are made up weeks in advance, and I can’t see them charging $20 over MSRP.

I’m hoping to redeem 50K Optimum points for it tomorrow.

My switch Mario Odyssey bundle just shipped from Best Buy! Here's hoping everything goes smoothly. My last console purchase was the ps3... I'm a tad bit excited right now.

Just did it last week for NBA 2K18 on the Switch since it wasn’t coming until the following Monday instead of the release day on Tuesday.

UPC codes were the same and there were no issues with the return.

Both the web order and in store purchase were at Wal-Mart

I forgot I preordered Fire Emblem Warriors earlier this year, so I now have a Switch game but no Switch. And of course, I doubt there will be any deals on those any time soon.

I wonder if any Shoppers' will have one in stock - I think they have a 20x points event this Saturday.

So, the Mario switch bundle is $499.99. Is the carrying case supposed to be worth more than $20, or where is the bundle savings?

It's a terrible bundle - I thought about getting it early on, but you're right in that it's a $400 console plus an $80 game and a $20 case. And the game is still cheaper via Prime at the moment anyway.

You'd think they'd throw in a decent size SD card given that it's only a digital version of Mario, too.

Okay, so I wasn't missing anything after all -- just a terrible bundle :p

I'll wait. I really want to play Mario, though!

Went and picked up chibirobo for the 3DS from best buy for $10 today. I thought too long though on Dragon quest 8(?) And I missed out on it though. Oh well.

Monopoly Switch is arriving tomorrow instead of Monday the real release date. Now everyone can be jealous of me playing it before them 😂

Mario+Rabbids - $49.99

Amazon Deal of the Day - 4 hours remaining

It's a Ubisoft game so I'd imagine this will drop drastically if you wait long enough. But this is a pretty good deal given it's release wasn't that long ago.

Thanks for this and it's a good point you make about Ubisoft games. Personally I didn't find this game very entertaining (bought at launch and then returned it) and I'd say the meta score is probably accurate. I will happily rebuy this at $20-$30 but just found it a little slow and the rabbids humor went by me (ie I don't understand it)

Reading that people posting on resetera also had similar weird issues with Walmart.ca.
Basically they tried to charge my closed credit card, I called in to changed payment info but couldn't so they cancelled the original order and put in a new order with the discount price.

They still shipped my original order, but at regular price instead of $49, despite being cancelled. I called in but they had no idea what was going on and said I wasn't charged. The rep I spoke to was clearly a dits that was making up a lot of BS on her end to why it changed from $49 to $90. I ended up just ending the call and called my bank. They said there is no way for them to charge my closed credit card as the request would be blocked.

I think I just got me a free copy.}

*Breaking news*
I just got re-imbursed $33.90 on my original order... on my original, now closed, credit card.
I guess regardless if they find a way to charge my credit card account, at least it's at the discounted price.

Finally picked up Danganropa on vita. Hopefully I can play it before it becomes another backlog addition.

You can buy it elsewhere and return the amazon copy with the other stores receipt. Provided neither are unique copies...

it's not even what's always been called a 'bundle'. which's, up till now, anyway, always been a console combined with free/discounted games. this's simply a packaged version of the console & the game, for the going price of both. iow, pointless! :) ...

My Walmart Mario Odyssey is out for delivery, I'm so excited!


This forum mess though, lol. I'm okay coasting on GAF for a bit, I'm already in the discord so it's not too big of a deal. I'll start looking into reset era once things have calmed down a little bit and the lines aren't as flooded.

These were just delivered at my place. Can't wait to get home to see them. Don't even have the game yet but couldn't pass these up.
