StarCraft II Deals: Get the Game for CheaperBy Jared Newman
So you didn’t pre-order StarCraft 2, missing out on all sorts of deals, and now you want to join the hype train and get a cheap copy. I understand. That’s why I’ve done my best to find some decent StarCraft 2 deals for launch day, and maybe beyond. I’m not going to lie, these aren’t jaw-dropping special offers, but they should save you more money than going directly to Best Buy or GameStop.
First up is Kmart’s in-store offer of a $20 gaming coupon when you buy StarCraft II at the regular price of $60. That offer starts today and runs through July 30. [via CheapAssGamer]
If you’re in the market for a desktop tower case, check out NewEgg’s combo deal: One Thermaltake Element G tower case (it has fans that change color with temperature) and StarCraft II for $100, after a $25 mail-in rebate. The case alone normally costs $150. [via SlickDeals]
Using Bing Cashback can also net you some discounts. Right now, I see the game priced at $50 using BCB at TigerDirect, CompUSA and Circuit City websites. As SlickDeals notes, you can also try using eBillMe for an additional discount with the code “AFF10SUN.” Keep in mind, however, that the Bing Cashback program ends for good on July 30.
Just want to try Starcraft II before buying? Also in the market for a graphics card? Nvidia’s offering a 7-hour downloadable trial of the game when you buy select GeForce graphics cards.
Finally, there’s Buy.com, is selling StarCraft II for the usual $60, but with free shipping and no tax in most states.
Hope that helps!
