We've got our first Wrath of the Lich King
deal to report, and unfortunately, it's less than impressive. Apparently, if you buy the expansion at Best Buy
next week, you'll be able to pick up a strategy guide for the game at 25% off. It's not a great deal, especially since Amazon is offering the guide at 34% off
, with or without the game (and since you're a WoW Insider reader, you likely won't need the guide anyway). But it is a deal, and it is for Wrath
, so there you go. We'd love to have better deals for you (folks like me who buy Gears of War 2 at Circuit City
this week are picking up free gift cards and such), but nothing yet.
There is good news, also, for people who are buying the expansion through Amazon -- apparently they're offering release-day delivery
in some places, so even if you picked up the game at the online retailer, you could have it at exactly the same time (well, a few hours later, since there are midnight releases
going around and shipped games usually don't show up until midmorning at least) as everybody else. That way, you won't miss a minute of the lag and frustration-inducing camping that will surely ensue just after launch.
If you hear about a deal or a special sale on Wrath
next week, let us know
. We've all spent way too much money on this game already -- every cent we can save is worth it.
