Answering my own question, Best Buy has $10 sim cash cards for $5. Haven't seen much of anything else.

Someone at cheapassgamer claims to have found a way to get it for 25 bucks, using the EA website and discounted Simsbucks from Best
Buy.

Almost sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth, though.

Can five murderous vagabonds heroes save their world from a roman empire knockoff the forces of evil?  Apparently so! Find out how they did it in the only best D&D game in General Analog Gaming!

Interesting - this also works to buy ALL EA titles for 50% off. One caveat - you have to get thm from EA.com.

I have a raincheck for 5 waiting for me at my local BB.  I tried to get 11, so that I could also pick up Tiger Woods for the Wii, but  I'm not sure I'd want to wait for the low cost shipping, and I know I don't want to pay for overnight.  Still, if they call telling me my cards are in, and they have more before the sale is up, I'll probably get it.

I'd just wait for it - you're saving $30 over the retail price. Why jump at the game?

Why wait for the game, you're only saving $30?

Sadly, this is the way my thinking is going.  I understand your "logic," D, but I'm not swayed by it.   icon_wink

I'm just anxious to get my hands on the WM+ and TW.

I did the $5 Sims card and got the game for $25 off.  Free shipping for a physical copy.  Had to wait a week, but that's worth $25.
