Grand Theft Auto V is the most highly anticipated release for September and one of the most highly anticipated games for the last four months of 2013. Online retailer Newegg jumped in Friday to take advantage by offering a $10 gift card with both the standard and special editions of the PS3 and Xbox 360 open-world title.
Pre-order the GTA V standard edition at $59.99 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 between Friday, Aug. 23 and Thursday, Aug. 29 from Newegg and receive a $10 gift card. Meanwhile, the PS3 Special Edition and the Xbox 360 Special Edition both cost $79.99 and are eligible for the gift card as well.
The Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition comes with a copy of the game, a Steelbook case as well as a map of Los Santos and Blaine County as physical bonuses. The in-game bonuses include a Special Ability Boost, Stunt Plane Trials, additional weapons, the Atomic Blimp plus bonus outfits, tattoos and more.
Newegg does offer free shipping for GTA V but delivery is four to seven business days after the game launches. Upgrading to three business days bumps the cost up to $5 though while faster shipping options wipe out the benefit of receiving the $10 gift card.
