Sign up for a GameFly rental membership this weekend and get your first two months for $7.98 per month (two games out = $11.48/month). It's a cheap way to try out the service for an extended period of time. Offer ends Sunday, 12/20.

Yea I kinda wanted to know that as well...

I dropped it a year ago, but with the influx of games this season I thought it would be worth it.

Hopefully I can rejoin at this price

Pretty sure the answer to that is yes.

Don't forget, you can get a free month of the two rentals plan as a member of The ECA. That ends up as a better deal, minus the whole being an ECA member and all that...

ECA won't be getting my CC info anytime soon.

Edit - You guys bought a lot of stuff over BF (like some new games, some older) etc and use GameFly, right? I see this as a great deal if your game collection is pretty weak. If I did GameFly, then I wouldn't have time or less time to spend on the games I have now. I'm on the fence on GameFly, even with the holiday deal.

Did the two games out at a time. Came out to roughly $25, ends 2/17.

Not a bad deal I spose. I used GameFly before in the future and the shipping times were pretty meh.

I leave Monday to go to my folks for the Holidays for a week. I doubt ill get any games before then. Hopefully ill have some good PS3 games waiting for my when I return with my new PS3. :)

Not nearly as good as this deal, but if you're a current member, you can always buy yourself a gift certificate for a small discount.

Hey guys, I did a quick google search...
Not sure If I'm allowed to post to a site other than to other retailers, etc. but here goes

http://online-game-rental.com/

1 Game
out
$6.95 First Month
+ Magazine
bonus ($15.95/ month thereafter)
2 Games
out
$9.95 First Month
+ Magazine
bonus ($22.95/ month thereafter)

Pre-Paid Terms and Conditions

2 Games
out
Free Trial 10 Days
+ Magazine
bonus ($22.95/month there

Is that even legit?


Edit - Also, what's the "magazine bonus"-- GameFly's own magazine?

A soothsayer is a person who claims to speak sooth: specifically one who predicts the future based upon personal, political, spiritual, mental, or religious beliefs rather than scientific principles. Typically, soothsayers include:


I learn something new everyday.

LIES

A definition of a soothsayer is an old person who warn people named "Caesars" to beware the ides of march. And when said Caesars approach the soothsayer that the ides of march has approached, a soothsayer says back that the ides of march had come but not gone.

Someone said the word to me once and I didnt know it and had to look it up too. Just sounded better then fortune teller or something I guess.

cRodz - I am sure words can have more than one use. Dictionary.com has it as someone who professes to foretell events. So unless everyone else is BS'ing it can be used that way as well.

edit 2 - thanks bruce you beat me to it.

Thanks Cheapy- honest, but I am currently using a gift of three months with them and their shipping time SUCKS. PERIOD. So, I'll be canceling before they charge my credit card. For me, I have a HUGE backlog, so I can wait for the new releases to go down in price.

I'm on a free trial right now and it wouldn't let me use this 'deal' so I don't think it's really 'buy' 1 month get 1 free, it's just a signup offer which is in fact inferior to others out there.

So far I am also unimpressed with the shipping times and will not sign up if things don't improve. Oh well, I am sure it's a deal for some people.

This has now turned into a dictionary thread.

Hey guys, just a heads-up, if you enter words in dictionary.com, you get FREE Shipping + NO tax + Instant gratification of slightly improving your knowledge of the English language.

No expiration either makes this a GREAT deal.

Reason i stopped my trial early. I had the two game trial and I had to rush to get four games in. I literally had my first two set of games for about three days before I had to send them in just so I could get the other two and ship them back before the trial ended (Illinois).

If they can get the speed (or amount of shipping centers) as Netflix (They have one right in St. Louis which is 30 minutes away from me) then I will rejoin Gamefly. I can get a movie send one back and get another within one week. For gamefly is was get one, send on back a week and a half later get the other (roughly).

I finally enlisted in Gamefly because of this promotion. However, they of course charged my card the full price instead of the introductory price they indicate on the page. Luckily, before I purchased, I actually read through all of the terms and they're pretty clear they won't do that until the first period is over. All in all, I'd say I'm pretty stoked on this because now I'm going to call and complain tomorrow until I get free stuff :)

Same for me, it took gamefly forever to get my games to me its why I cancelled. But I wonder why netflix takes so long for you with a shipping center so close. If I put movies in the mail on monday for netflix, my next movie is here on wednesday, pretty much a 2 day turnaround all the time for me.
