they didn't get rid of it, nhl 13 might just not have enough stock to handle release day shipping

I have my copy set for release day delivery. Sometimes they remove it and add again later, closer to release date.

*.99 cent shipping is done per Amazon rep. preorders with RDD be honored though.

I'm an Amazon prime member.. so I'll get release day delivery for free.

I paid $44.99 for NCAA 13, also ordered Madden and got $15 off my next purchase, so that will go towards NHL 13. Damn I feel dirty buying all these EA games.. LOL..

the only time I was let down was last year with Madden 12 because of Hurricane Irene..

everything always showed up on time.

It's never failed me, but being a Prime member is definately the way to go. It's $79 a year, but you get Free 2 Day shipping and Release Day shipping. Plus all kinds of other savings. I

I have never used HUT and don't really plan to, nor do I play EASL or BAP. All I play is offline BeAGM, and none of the pre-orders has a bonus for users like me. Works out fine, though, since I planned to wait and get feedback this year before comitting anyway.

Same here as far as HUT goes, it's a disgusting cash grab. I find myself stuck playing EASHL since the offline portion gets boring quickly but hopefully that will change this year.

Just looked this up, you're right. But if I'm not mistaken you can still get release day delivery, just not for 99 cents, right?

Never once have I had an issue. In fact, I've traded in two games that were said to be "cracked" only to get them back and they were fine. Went online and into chat with an Amazon rep and they gave me whatever credit was due for the game.

I fully support Amazon for at least 75% of my purchases - definitely all my games are purchased from Amazon.

Yep amazon is extremely credible for release day and honestly with everything because they cater to their customers. For the past 2 years I have been using amazon nonstop. I think I'm addicted. The pre-orders are awesome, it's cheaper, and you get a crap load more money for used games. Hell I got a PS3 on amazon for $120 because I signed up for their credit card for $40 of free amazon money (never activated the card) and I also traded in like 3 or 4 9 month old games for at least double what gamestop would have given me. I'm not a huge fan of playing games on the PS3 but the fact I had to get The Show and wanted a Blu Ray player, I couldn't pass up the deal.

It's too bad I don't play HUT, EASHL or online at all otherwise these pre-orders would be a thing of beauty. I would love to buy the collectors addition as well but they just don't offer anything I'm interested in due to all of the online stuff. Online players have to be pumped about this though.

Is the amazon preorder the only way to get Gretzky in the game?
