Newegg sale offers Wrath of the Lich King expansion for $999
If you've been wanting to get a friend into World of Warcraft before Mists of Pandaria comes out or you just want to upgrade a second account for Recruit-A-Friend perks, you might want to check out Newegg right now. The retailer is currently selling box copies of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion for $9.99, half off the normal retail price, with a limit of five copies per customer.

Players who currently own a standard Battle Chest account (which includes both vanilla WoW and The Burning Crusade) need Wrath of the Lich King to gain access to level 70+ content and to upgrade to the current expansion, Cataclysm. A fully upgraded account will also be necessary to install Mists of Pandaria when it is released in the near future.

Since Newegg is a U.S. vendor, it's most likely this sale will only be good for those of you who want to play on North American and Oceanic servers. Sorry, Europe!

Update: It looks like Newegg has sold out of copies of Wrath of the Lich King now.
