Pre-Ordering Mario Kart 8 Will Get You Free Gas


Mario fans who pre-order Mario Kart 8 at Best Buy can get $10 worth of free gas.

In what seems like a bit of a strange, yet apt promotion, Best Buy is handing out $10 worth of MasterCard "Gas Cash" with pre-orders of Mario Kart 8. If you pre-order the game from Apr. 27 to May 29 in store or online, you'll get a code on your receipt which you can enter on

You'll then print out the Gas Cash reward, which can be redeemed at any gas station in the U.S. that accepts MasterCard. Best Buy warns that the codes are usually sent within 30 minutes but can also take up to 8 hours, so don't expect to fuel up immediately upon entering your code.

A FAQ on the explains that you can actually use the Gas Cash at any retailer that accepts MasterCard, so you're not limited to just using it for gas. Why not fuel yourself up and grab some food or maybe put the credit towards another game?

Mario Kart 8 will be released on May 30 for the Wii U.
