details here.  they stopped using the points system, but from what I read the coupon will be converted into magical XBucks when you enter the code.

Hmm, the effective $20 savings makes that a pretty tempting deal.

they supposedly had a next day shipping option for free using code freeshipesc2012-over, but I haven't been able to make it work.  it was added last night, so it may be buggy/up for alteration.

I just went there and added it to my cart no problem, don't see anything on the order page saying it is out of stock.  code won't work though.

Microsoft updated their page to indicate that yes, as long as you place the order by 6PM PT on 9/15, you will get it on release day.

I pre-ordered through Amazon, then cancelled it for the release date delivery and $20 in points.

For what it's worth, I got a shipping notice for my copy with tracking number from the MS store this morning.  I had ordered a couple weeks ago.

ugh..  still looking at Status Backordered. 

I really hope they get the act together and start shipping soon.  it kind of makes the whole promo they have useless if they can't fulfill the order.

I guess Amazon is going to next day mine, as it hasn't shipped and is still saying the 17th.

Damn you guys.  I was going to wait for the PC release but ended up ordering the 360 version just before 6pm yesterday.

Well, I got my email and code for the 1600 point card today, but somehow the MS store is out of 1600 point cards to redeem it.  Not sure why they wouldn't just give a digital card.   icon_confused

Cool, thanks.  I assumed the rebate code they gave me would only work on the actual card since that was the page they linked to, but it did go through on the digital code as well.

Thanks, Caine.  I was in the same boat and came here to see if there'd been a solution.

How do you convert into to cash?

if I'm reading the FAQ correctly you just enter the code and it converts the points to cash:

Quote
What happens to Microsoft Points Cards?

Xbox Gift Cards (denominated in your local currency) will be available for purchase in retail stores and through online retailers starting in late 2013. Microsoft Points Cards you purchase in retail stores will continue to be redeemable on your console and Xbox.com until further notice. Microsoft has no plans to discontinue acceptance of previously purchased Points cards and codes.

What if I still have codes and/or Microsoft Points Cards that I haven’t yet redeemed?

Go ahead and redeem them! Even after your account transitions, we’ll still accept purchased Microsoft Points Cards and codes until further notice, and we’ll add to your account an amount of local currency equal to or greater than the Marketplace value of those points. When you next redeem a Points card or code, those Points will be retired, and your account will begin using your local currency instead. Microsoft Points cards and codes that you have purchased and choose to redeem after your account has transitioned will expire one year from the date the Points are redeemed. Applies to US/Canada only: we will not apply taxes when you spend the currency that we add to your account at the time you redeem your Microsoft Points Card or code.
