Bioshock infinite preorder promos [amazon, gmg, gg]

BioShock Infinite (NA) on PC screenshot #7

There's a bioshock infinite pre-order event, and most retailers are offering something for it, so you can choose whatever offer suits you the best :

Amazon has it for 59.99$ with the following incentive :
Pre-order and get $30 worth of 2K Games credit ($15 now and $15 upon release March 26), plus "BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt" for Kindle and the "Industrial Revolution Pack" free

So you'll get 30$ worth of store credit that can be used only on 2K games, credits expire march 26 2014 so that's a while to use them, for the patient ones, this credit could actually net you quite a lot of games if we look at what 2K packs amazon has sponsored in the past (bioshock 1+2 + borderlands GOTY for 10$ for example), but you'll have to wait for sales on 2K games to spend them if you want to make the most of them.

Greenmangaming : 59.99$ as well
Here, you get immediate incentive with 14$ cashback (which you won't get until the release) or 15$ store credit immediatly, and on top of that, you also get bioshock 1 for free, and one game of your choice between : The Darkness 2, Mafia 2, Civ 5, Bioshock 2, Spec Ops (only one of those)

Gamersgate : 59.95$ (or 29.99£ on the UK shop if you manage to use it, which is cheaper given the rates, it's about 47$)
Gamersgate will give you 30% back as store credit (blue coins) + the usual 5%, if you do the maths that's actually 20 978 BLC meaning 21$ store value.
You also get a copy of bioshock for free with the purchase, but it would seem that this free copy of bioshock is not a steam key. You can also pick one extra game from the same list as GMG :  The Darkness 2, Mafia 2, Civ 5, Bioshock 2, Spec Ops (only one, all of them are registered as being steam keys, except spec ops)

Note that all the offers are "North America only" in theory, which means that you'll need a proxy to use greenmangaming and maybe to see the offer on gamersgate. As usual, amazon is supposed to be "north america" only anyway but they won't do anything to enforce it, you just need to provide some california or delaware us billing adress and they'll let you order any digital content.

The choice you have, and the choice is yours, but if you do ask us, if you're patient and want games, you might be able to get more value out of the amazon deal, they've featured 2K packs in the past that could net you a lot of games for those 30$ credits, you can see this post of us for reference, the 30$ mega pack did include those games last time (but again, now you might already have them) :

Bioshock 2
Borderlands GOTY
Duke Nukem Forever Complete (DNF+ both DLCs)
Mafia II
Civilization V GOTY
Civilization IV Complete
The Stronghold Collection

Some of you might have the "permanent" gamersgate extra 20% they gave at christmas when they failed to deliver a price error, for those of you who have it, the gamersgate might definitly be of interest money-wise.
