Guessing most people are going to say Overstock's (I think it was them) $10 off coupon fiasco. But since I didn't get in on that, I'm going to say Play-Asia's summer sale. Definitely limited in appeal, but for importers, it was a godsend.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Google Checkout $20 off $50.

Being right during the holidays, this probably saved me at least $100 in one month.

I put this in the online retailer thread, but it fits better here. The Amazon/TRU old-style Nintendo DS Nintendogs Best Friends and Animal Crossing bundles (where you could add a free $20 toy to the shipment as well). I was able to get a second DS for my kids (as well as a nice Magnetix set) to use for about $50 out of that (after selling the Nintendogs game on ebay ;)).

Then there was that Overstock thing where I got a couple games for like $2 each. Yeah, that was pretty good - but since that was a mistake/glitch I'm not sure if it really should count. It was more than $10, though, wasn't it? I'm thinking it was $20, since I got God Of War for about $2 out of it ($20 + shipping - $20).

Then again, Google Checkout combined with the Toys R Us $25 deal on Final Fantasy XII was pretty nice too ;).

Seconded for buy.com's 20 off 50/10 off 30 GCO promotion. Absolutely no contest. I spent a ridiculous amount of money on useless crap through November and December.

The Circuit City early summer clearance. $1.96 F-zero GC and #3.96 PoP: 2 XB ftw?

And another vote for Google Checkout $20 off $50.

Overstock's $20 coupon glitch if that counts. If not... I don't think I partook in any other deals.

Well definately Amazon's black friday sale and more importantly the Core Xbox 360's for 100 dollars if you could get one.

A close second is google checkout $10 off $10 items was good one.

EBGames.com's coupon stacking adventure didn't end till mid-06 right? Like March or something?

I'll say that. CAG15(6)+Edge Card+SAVER. :) I miss the morning updates and saving 25% on every thing used I ever bought. :(

I think Google Checkout is the best choice... you could save $10 off $30 at tons of stores and $20 off of $50 from Buy.com.

I picked up tons of stuff but didn't get to make any good game purchases since all the games I wanted were sold out.

the $100 core was great, but that was one of the most poorly designed sales ever.
