Each retailer has a special package of things depending on what product you buy.
Although I have not been able to look at the C-store, based on how things worked in Champions Online I suspect that it is likely that you will be able to get many of the same perks from the C-store for a modest investment.
For example, I am unable to afford the lifetime subscription right now and don't know if I will have the funds available before they are removed. On the other hand, I know that the liberated borg character (one of the lifetime subscription perks) is also available in the C-store so if I decide I absolutely have to have one then all I need to do is purchase from the C-store.
As to getting a preorder key, I suspect that you will have to go to a brick-and-mortar at this point if you want to get your key. I'm fairly certain that Amazon and other d2d retailers are not sending preorder/beta keys at this time. (That, too, is what happened in Champions Online.)
