Yesterday I went to Frys to pick up a AMD 7850 (made by Diamond) that was on sale. I thought every 78xx series card comes with 3 free games, but suprised to see it comes with only Sleeping Dogs game. Did the promotion change or is it different from different manufacturers? So didn't pick up.

MC still has the deal but the card is expensive tho.

Maybe they ran out of FC3 codes and that's why they gave you a SD code? Has happened to me before with the Just Cause 2 promotion about a year back. My local store ran out of codes and gave me a Dirt3 code :(

That is what I saw on MC and Frys didn't tell that FarCry3 coupon is also included. Don't know if I dealt with somebody who didn't know about it.
Its clear you only get 1 game and 20% off MOH Warfighter with purchase of one 7800 series card.

thanks, missed that. Was hoping to get FarCry 3. Anyway I probably will wait for something with a better deal.

I bought a (1) Sapphire 2G 7850 (not OC) from Newegg last week and it came with the Far Cry 3, Hitman Absolution game bundle card. Both redeemed with out issue. Newegg is off and on recently with the game bundle coupons. I saw the card for $199 with the 2 game bundle and jumped on it. If you haven't bought a card yet, check Newegg every day. I bet you will see the same bundle listed again in a day or two.
