Kmart offered a pre-order package that included a set of four coasters and a $15 off coupon towards the purchase of the game during the first week of its release. The coupon states it may be combined with other special offers. (Please note – the coupon is printed at the checkout. It is not in the box.)
In this past Sunday’s weekly ad for Kmart, Fallout: New Vegas is among several games ther are offering with a $20 credit towards a future game purchase. As of Sunday afternoon, several of my local Kmart stores still had the pre-order coasters on the shelf for $5.
Doing some quick math – The coasters are free and the game ends up costing $30. Not bad since it’s probably about $15 less than a used copy will be at Gamestop (once they get some).
The only drawback is there is no included “exclusive” digital content like the ones offered by other retailers. Did I mention this nets out at $30 – on release day?
I have never really considered Kmart a store for video games, but they are on my radar now, and they should be on yours.
