OK, bare with me.

If you Pre-order you get an extra 500 clubcard points in addition to the 40 from the game making 540. Going through Topcashback gets you another 3% (£1.20), but you can get that in Tesco points with an additional 5% bonus making 126 points. Total clubcard points so far 666.

If you use these points in one of the Tesco double points promotions you can trade them in for £13.32 worth of free Lego (and there is often already discounted sets included in these offers).

I rang Tesco and the adviser said this 'should' be the limited edition version with the Chase McCain figure. Looking around online it looks like this is maybe the only version Nintendo are making for release day anyway. Can always just return to store if not, if it is a deal breaker for you that is,

Best deal about I could find this morning and the price is not going to go down before release (28th March).

All launch day copies include the Chase McCain Minifig

CHEEPSTUFFRULES!

Thanks TanyaSpace, I thought that was correct but was not sure.



Yeah, I looked it up a few months ago as no one really seemed to know. Glad it's like that. Managed to grab it for just under £28 from Zavvi a while back.
Can't wait to play it.

Its not mentioned at all on the Tesco website and the guy did not know for sure when I rang them. Like I said to him, Tesco are probably loosing quite a few orders to their competitors because they don't mention the minifig.

Had to go look it up and it is actually 5% not 10%, sorry.

hotukdeals.com/mis…060

I will edit the details above.

I know this deal is all a bit of a palava but its gone from about 50° to 30° for some reason. Hope some people thought it was worth the fuss.

Its one of the best prices yet (for those that intend to use the double up vouchers when the time comes)....I guess most will be put off and vote cold as soon as they see the listed £40 price on here

I'm thinking about buying a Wii U just to play this game on it, looks awesome!

Its a big part of the reason I decided to buy a Wii U this week, along with the decent ADSA bundle deal coming along. Should all be here and playing in lovely HD by the end of next week!

How do you know you get 500 points pre order??

When I put it in my basket it just says 40...

The 500 bonus points offer expired a few days ago.

I ordered while the promo was valid......wondering this myself too.....I've just logged into the Clubcard part of the website....and all I can see so far is "18/03/2013 CLUBCARD M.CARD SPEND - TESCO DIRECT £40.00 10 points earned"

Not sure why it says 10 points. I'm guessing that's related to me also using a Tesco credit card......soooooooo do the 500 extra points add on AFTER its been shipped?

ah......m card = mastercard.

I'm guessing/hoping then that they're applied on dispatch....will be sure to keep an eye on it or it'll sharp be getting returned

500 extra points for game pre-orders seems to have finished now.

When I pre-ordered games with the offer, the points appeared in my Club Card account a few days after I'd ordered (as you pay right away).
Not sure about Tesco Credit Cards. Maybe you get it through that?

hmmm....in that case then looks like I haven't received my 500 points. If I go to Order Details though it does say the 540 points earned as part of the order.

can anyone please check their account at tesco.com/clu…ard and see if theirs have been assigned?

I just checked again. Was actually credited on the day I bought the game (Gears Judgment pre-order) "TESCO TESCO DIRECT OR WINE £536.00 536". Had the same with Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider.
Maybe you didn't get it cuz you used a Tesco Credit Card? Just give them a quick call, I'm sure they can tell you

hmmm **** - I've used the Contact Us page on the clubcard section.

Can't see it being the tesco credit card....its basically a card that has the clubcard point associated with it...to save carrying both about....so get the regular 1 pt per £1 aswell as think its 1 per £4 spent on card in general (which is why it did show up as giving me 10pts) - but no 540 that the order says got
