Don't forget to get an extra $10 credit to spend on yours when you refer friends for their first groupon!

http://www.groupon.com/visitor_referral

(No referral links on SD)

Now time to convince a friend to get it! :)

u2fan01 04-22-2013 01:52 AM

Is there tax charged for the purchase?

kuripot 04-22-2013 01:52 AM

Thanks op!

How long does Amazon give you to send the game in once I submit the trade-in?

Here's [amazon.com] the $20 promo for anyone interested.

CheapestGamer 04-22-2013 02:08 AM

Sweet. I was going to wait for the 100% trade promo at Best Buy to come back to trade my copy I got them to match Amazon's DOTD for $41.99 on. But I'll take $34 for it in trade right now rather than wait a week and watch the BB value plummet if the 100% comes back.

Agreed. I ordered Hitman and it was almost 2 weeks before I received my copy: ordered on March 15th, delivered on March 28th. Amazon's trade-in price is good for 7 days and the $20 bonus trade-in runs through April 27th. Unfortunately I doubt you'll get your copy in time.

If enough people send in the lower price to Amazon they may match the price though? I've seen nothing but great things about the game and would buy it at this price if it was anyone but Groupon. 2 weeks is a long time to wait!

ShadyGirl23 04-22-2013 05:05 AM

yea please let me know if amazon will price match this.

Haha, I just submitted my trade request for this yesterday. I got my copy from Best Buy, with the $20 preorder credit. This is one of the best trade-in deals I've seen in a long time.

Great game btw, but a bit easy. I played on normal and didn't really get stuck once. Experienced gamers may want to start on a higher difficulty than normal.

39$ is about the same as 40$... (not sure about shipping, site blocked at work)
and 55$ is 15$ higher than 40$...

i'm failing to see how it's better?

ne0ven0m 04-22-2013 10:36 AM

Maybe faster shipping is why boxddeal? Does anyone know how quickly that site tends to ship?

ne0ven0m 04-22-2013 10:52 AM

Also, I sent Amazon a link to boxeddeals to see if they'll price match. If they do, I'm going to take advantage of Best Buy's price match policy to get it for $40 + tax in store.

Sorry I was talking about the PS3 version and it's better because everyone is saying that Groupon takes a long time to ship. I'm assuming boxeddeals will ship faster.

I bought their "used - acceptable" version for $28.97 last week and am almost done with it. Planning on trading it in under "good condition". The only thing wrong with my version is that there's a small crack in the case. I have old sports games that I can change the case on. The game even came with the slipcover and art book and was never opened. I love Amazon Warehouse.

shoppifybonus 04-22-2013 01:46 PM

one of my fav game. going to boxeddeal if that can ship faster. thanks blunt_eastwood

THANKS! I just finished this game 5 minutes ago and it was great. Bought it used for $40, now I'll get $54 back. What a deal.

GratefulLaz 04-24-2013 06:43 AM

I went the boxdeal route even though it is an opened version because they accept paypal and I did not have to register to order it. I have been wanting to check this out as the first Tomb Raiders on the original PS were awesome. I hope this is on that level.

PS. boxdeal sent an email showing my order status as shipped a few hours after ordering - no tracking provided so we will see.

slickdewmaster 04-24-2013 09:09 AM

Amazon has price matched for both systems! This helps those who want to trade in the game for the extra video game credit. :)

rodmitchell 04-24-2013 10:10 AM

I am hesistant to buy on Groupon. I heard they are going out of business. Is this true?

buy and pricematch on Amazon.

johnnyma45 04-24-2013 10:25 AM

Patiently waiting for it to get to <=$20 on a future Gamefly sale. If Dishonored can get there that quickly, so can TR.

steveliv 04-24-2013 10:53 AM

just purchased from Amazon, with prime it will be here on Friday. Also submitted a trade in for $54 ($34 + $20 promo). Trade In needs to be mailed by the 1st, so i have at least 5 days to play and beat it before sending it back in. If the $34 trade in value holds up, i can trade in later and get even more time to play. easiest $14 i ever made!

matchnbpm 04-24-2013 11:10 AM

Heading to best buy after work for a price match :-)

Tomb Raider was released March 5th. Dishonored was released October 9th (hard to believe as I thought it came out much later in the year). Probably going to be a while before it's < $20.

canonikon 04-24-2013 11:20 AM

sweet...just bought this and traded it in for $14 extra money to spend !

Can I just tell Amazon to open the sealed wrappings and send it over to their TRADE-IN department and deposit the $14 credit into my account? :lol::lol::lol::lol:

FernandoVenezuela 04-24-2013 11:35 AM

ouch. I bought the groupon deal and now they are telling me it wont SHIP for two weeks. I live in chicago, where groupon is located. I might not get this game for another month. Wondering if I can cancel somehow. This is a terrible deal if you go Groupon. Get the Amazon deal if you can.

O rly? Did not know that, thought Dishonored was newer than that. Well, backlog awaits.

Dishonored was an excellent game, but even collecting all of the bone charms and runes plus a low chaos playthrough, i was able to complete it rather quickly.

In order to better attack my backlog of 50+ games, i have started figuring the "Time to Complete" in my prioritization. I use http://www.howlongtobeat.com/ to find out the average time it takes to complete the game, and if it is under approximately 8 hours, it gets placed higher on my list. I can knock out the shorter games faster and my backlog starts to look smaller (even if it is just an illusion :P)

GreekHokie 04-24-2013 12:27 PM

This game is pretty fun to play but I am not sure about its replay value. For some reason I got lots of joy in using the bow and errow headshots. You will too if you are into that sort of thing.

jasongw 04-24-2013 12:33 PM

Finally! Gonna price match BB tonight, apply my $15 reward zone certificate and snag this for $25. Beat it over the weekend, then trade it in to Amazon for $54. fark yeah!

DVDBob 04-24-2013 12:51 PM

Picked this up and was wondering if this is supposed to be a "prequel" to the other TR games? Laura seems like such a _ussy whereas in the original games she was badass. Love the gameplay and it always seems to keep me playing even when I know I need to put it down. PS3 graphics are top notch, only wish they made it 3D.

NevTheRipper 04-24-2013 12:54 PM

Truly slick! Game should be here Friday with Prime shipping and already locked in the trade.

don't forget to lock in the trade in price. if lots of people are doing this, then the TIV could drop quickly.

slagman5 04-24-2013 01:45 PM

Great game. I bought it for PC for $28 less than a week after it was released. I can't believe $40 more than a month later is considered a front page deal, but then again, that's the rip-off console prices for you... Have fun guys, it's a great game, very fun, and the graphics are awesome on the PC, I'm sure it's OK on PS3 or Xbox too...

Trade-in value on Tomb Raider is down to $19.65 from $34 due to SD effect. Hope some of you moved quickly and locked in the TIV like I did. I know what game I'll be playing this weekend :cheers:

FYI: For those of you who were just now ready to pull the trigger, you're about 30 minutes too late.

dblo7 04-24-2013 01:51 PM

Trade-in-value now at $19.65

steveliv 04-24-2013 02:02 PM

i locked in earlier at $34, whew... i always lock in immediately, since you can always complete at least one more trade in if the price stays high, which will extend your "rental" period...

and since the TIV is below $20, it no longer qualifies for the "Trade $20, Get $20 Extra" Promo...

siryoink 04-24-2013 02:11 PM

Already have it, but for what it's worth, I've played about 3 hours into it and it's great so far.

Thanks for the link, repped! I sell my games after I play it through, and was just thinking about something like this to help me organize what to play next.

Is this the latest version of tomb raider? I'm thinking of availing this on the count of the price is very affordable. thanks for the post.Ill get back to this very soon.

ne0ven0m 04-25-2013 01:29 AM

Well, I ended up getting Best Buy to price match and bought the game in store. After a few marathon sessions, I beat it and I will say it's one of the best games I've played! I know a lot of people want to call it an Uncharted rip off, but I would say it's got elements of Batman Arkham City/Asylum as well, with a dash of Heavy Rain. Regardless, great story and beautiful scenarios, but lackluster multiplayer component.

steveliv 04-26-2013 02:20 PM

Amazon just delivered the game. Did everyone else's copies come with a mini artbook? I figure i better return it exactly as it came to get the full $34 credit, and $20 bonus.
