    Default how does Walmart preorder work

    I was wondering if anyone knows how they issue the genadier elite code, is it in an email and has anyone received theirs yet or is it inside the game package?

    I believe it's in the game, I pre-ordered from Wal-Mart and I haven't received mine either.
    I used to play Gears just like you...but then I took an → in the knee.

    Dont know about down in the States but here in Canada you go to the cash....pick up a pre-order card....give them 10 bucks plus tax....and you walk out with your CODE right there.

    No ****? My Wally-world doesn't have pre-order cards. I was just there today. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough. By the cash in the electronics section, or by the rest of them, where they have the iTunes cards and all that?

    the wal-mart and best buy's where i live dont even do pre-orders. you have to just show up on the day it comes out and hope they have the games in stock. the pre-order code are in the game case.

    From what I've heard, if you order online, they will give you the code 2 days after the game came out on an e-mail. According to a Wal-Mart employe. But I doubt it. :<

    it's true that's what I did. They should have the cards in the game case, that's where mine had them.

    For the 100 billionth time.

    The 4 major US retailers are Best Buy, Walmart.com, GameStop, and Amazon.com

    All but GameStop will be E-MAILING the codes; GameStop will print your Commando Dom code ON YOUR RECEIPT.

    It says it right there along with the exclusive for each retailer how it will be delivered.

    I assumed he was asking about here in the US, where we don't have pre-order cards. That is quite lucky for you, though.

    Are we absolutely certain that Wal-Mart will be e-mailing the codes? I know that BB and Amazon are doing that, but I figured Wal-Mart would put the code inside the game box.

    does anyone know if just buying the pre-order card and not picking up the game will work?
    i.e. paying $10 for SGE

    i heard somewhere that microsoft does a check and cancels codes that have no ties to pre-order pick ups or something, but iunno

    I just went to my local wal-mart today and pre-ordered gears 3. they gave us a card with the exclusive character code on it. The cards themselves were just sitting on the shelves. I already have my Epic Edition paid off at ebgames so I have no intention whatsoever to pick up Gears 3 at wal-mart lol.
    I'm in Canada so anyone who lives in the country should give it a try.

    Preorder codes come in the game on release. I've gotten a few preorder codes from Walmart like this.
    Games are hard.

    I emailed customer service on walmart.com and they said it would be emailed once the product releases.

    My Walmart is horrible so I had to pre-order off Amazon online because Walmart.ca is also horrible. Sometimes living in Canada is so hard

    My wal-mart gives you a code as soon as you pre-order it order it. It works the exact same way this guy described it. the wal-mart is a supercentre if that matters at all. We are both in Canada.
