This sponsored post is produced by Dealzon. This post was updated on 5/12 as GTA V has been released with a new 20% off coupon.

Just after we got the news GTA V on PC is delayed from January 27th to March 26th, the pre-order became available this week. That said, Rockstar still wants your money before the end of January.

Rockstar has thrown a ton of pre-order bonuses out there that expire on February 1st, but even better than that noise is a 25% discount at select digital retailers. For this week, the game appeared for pre-order on their site with virtually identical pre-order bonuses to those you’d find elsewhere, along with the aforementioned discount cutting $13 off the $59.99 list price.

Update 5/12/2015: The 23% code is dead, but a new 20% offer makes a decent enough price point for GTA V.

Pre-order Bonuses


As mentioned earlier, Rockstar wants your money now vs. later when the game releases. The incentive? Rockstar is offering a standard pre-order bonus of in-game digital currency. On top of that, there’s a free game if you pre-order by February 1st:

  • $1,000,000 in in-game Currency ($500k for GTA V, $500k for GTA Online)
  • Additional $300,000 in-game currency for GTA Online
  • Free copy of Grand Theft Auto San Andres

Are the ~23% discount and extra bonuses along with the free game enough to get you to pre-order? Let us know in the comments below.
