Disney sent me a copy of Cars 2: The Video Game, which I wasn't expecting. It's not terribly exciting, but I always welcome free stuff.

Spoiler

Nice score. Maybe not so nice for you since you don't have a baby, but still...that's about $30 worth of formula right there. And those coupons are great for getting free bottles of pre-mixed formula that last for a day or two. I'd be begging you for this stuff if I lived in your area. Heh. Like you said, this stuff is not cheap at all. I'm so glad my son can actually eat food now.

If you put it up on Craigslist, it will get snatched up right away. I just hope it doesn't go to someone who will turn around and sell it to someone else.

Damn, how'd you get 15 copies of Lode Runner? I'd be happy with just one. Heh.

I found a method (which I posted, but was removed for some reason) to get keep getting codes. Ended up with about 25 and gave them all away on twitter, and some in the code drop thread.

After I posted it, a few people dropped some codes in that thread as well. So if you're looking for one, I'd keep an eye on it.

Actually, I just found out how to get the game. I tried searching earlier, but I guess I just wasn't using the right phrase. The method for getting the game is a little shady, so I can kinda see why your post was removed. Heh.

Halo Reach and Kinect Sports yes. Lode Runner they send you a 25 digit download code to redeem on Xbox.com. Either they ran out of codes, or they're going to send out cards with codes on it since it was exploited because I'm just getting emails saying I'll get it in the mail.

damn. well I used a fake address for one of the emails. SO guess Ill only be getting one code if thats the case. And when I try for Kinect Sports or Halo Reach it always tells me the email has already been used. And Ive tried 3 emails now.

That just means the MEID code has already been used. Just change one of the 4 last numbers of the MEID code and 9/10 it will work.

Are there any laws governing the use of this? I ask this just in case I enter a real address as I don't want the law showing up on my doorstep (a local detective here has a dislike for me and my brother).

I dunno but it seems like it might be a gray area that could lead to trouble, so to be safe I would not try.

I wasn't thinking when I did this. Do you think I could get in legal trouble? I really wish I wouldn't have.

Believe it or not I thought this was a promotion, not fraud. I must investigate much more in the future.

Personally, I am doubting that anything big would come from this besides not getting the games.

And that's the reason people like me can't even get 1 copy of Reach, some people are so fucking greedy, they deserve a visit from the cops.

Luckily for most people, greed isn't illegal. And if you tried to take advantage of this little scam, then you are just as guilty of being greedy.

Very nice. I ordered a really nice 3DS messenger bag from Amazon a couple of months ago and they ended up sending me three. I've been trying to sell the two extras, but nobody seems to be interested.

Greed is excessive want, 1 game isn't, 20 is of each game is when the sole purpose is to flip them around and put them on eBay or such.

On another note, got my business card holder today, yay! :)

I don't see how lying/cheating to get something that you don't deserve isn't excessive. If I only steal one TV from Best Buy, should I be excused because I'm not the guy who stole five?

Greed is a selfish desire, and I'd say that committing fraud to claim something that belongs to someone else is pretty damn selfish. It doesn't matter if it's one game or twenty; you're in the same boat.

I am only saying this to put out the other side of the story. Even though the games are worth $20-$30 or whatever, and they should cost that, it takes most likely takes 10 cents to make another copy of it. I don't think taking 20 or 10 or 5 of each is right but taking one of each.....not that bad. Lode Runner was a code after all. (One that I still did not get.) They (microsoft) are the ones that say it is worth 800 msp or $10. I see your reasoning and totally agree with it. The people that took excessive amount of them are greedy and all that, but, the people who took one or one of each, if they had good intentions,(For the kid, could not afford, gift) then it is not so bad.

((P.S I still wish I had got Lode runner))

(((P.P.S I would ,and this is not Sarcastic I swear, to hear your responce)))
