Goomba,

Thanks for the estimate, for that price I will be definitely be putting in a request for it! I just have some bills to pay at the beginning of the month and if I have the $$ to spare at the time I will put in the request for it. If not then, it will be the next paycheck. Luckily it's not released for a couple months but I definitely want to put in a request sooner than later for it to reserve a copy. Looks too good to pass up. Not only is it a good price but you get all those extra goodies for less than the price of regular new release.
Sorry to hear about the loss of money, I couldn't imagine what I'd do if I lost that sum!! :( You got a bunch of good friends here on CAG/GFC to help ya out. :)

-CrushEm

CrushEm, things are alright for the most part. I royally screwed up last week and lost $2400+ USD Cash at work and that was a major blow, but I'm slowly recovering and several CAGs and GFC friends chipped in to help me and the orders have been crazy busy lately which is good too :)

As for the Deathsmiles game I am really interested in that as well (I so want that faceplate!) and I estimate it should be no more than 2 pounds shipped, and realistically probably only 1.5 pounds. So you'd definitely save shopping with us on it :) No tax either ^_^

Here's my estimate:

Deathsmiles Limited Edition Set (Xbox 360):

$50.00 - Game Cost
$09.00 - Shipping Estimate (1.5 Pounds)
$02.00 - GFC Service Charge

-------------------------------
$61.00 USD SHIPPED (No Tax!)

By the way, today will be more of an accounting day. I'm logging orders as far back as January 2010 and I'm simply tying up loose ends, adding the numbers into my books and clearing up things. This is so I can begin with the new "Real Time Credit (RTC)" System that GFC will have soon. Once I'm done with that, then I will go back to packing up all the items that appear pink on the GYROS page. I will be packing and invoicing and all that good stuff as well :)

yay everything has shipped now, concerning the $10 gamestop gift thingy seem to remember reading in another cag thread that it was just a 1 use coupon code that took $10 off whatever was in the cart or some such, and didn't stack with at least some coupon codes the 25off included, and definitely not with another of the same sort, but I'm not sure I'll see if I can find something about it.

also gamestop.ca down to us prices for starcraft 2 and the CE of it also Pre-order StarCraft II and receive a GameStop Exlusive Poster or a Mouse Pad. Available for online and in-store customers only while supplies last.

Hey Goomba, since part of my 2 game order (629731815) is a pre-order will you be shipping out the games separately? The pre-order comes out in about a month. Just wondering if my shipping charges cover two separate shipments.

Shoot. You're partially correct that the Email was automated but what worries me is that I think my system did in fact ship your package out to your old mailing location...crap. I will resend a new one to your new address, but I think I may end up losing that other copy. Oops :( Sorry about that. I will repack a new copy for you now with the new address manually.

Porumy, copy #2 has been shipped to the correct address. Hope it gets to you quickly buddy. Sorry about that! My loss. Address changes always confuse my system as they have to be manually changed in like 5 places. Of course I got all the changes made except the one that really counts: the shipping program =P Oh well. You live you learn. Thanks again.

Hey Goomba,

Seems everyone is getting their free copies of ODST , so I figured I'd check up with you and see if you received one under my name.

If so, I'm planning on making some purchases around the end of the month, so you can just sit on it for now if you have the room, and we can throw it in to whatever you send me later on.

=D

I have not yet received any free copies of Halo 3 ODST though I know a few of you submitted requests for them. I will of course let you know if and when they come in, but so far I haven't received any. I'm going to the UPS store tomorrow though for the first time this week so I'll keep you all posted :) Thanks!

Currently Working: 4/29/2010 = (6PM-1AM EST).
Orders to Process: 65 TOTAL (65 DR's [All Pre-Paid Orders have been processed] & 0 Package Forwarding Orders -- Finally entered all into the system!).

I will update GYROS as I go along and will answer Emails when I have time. Thanks guys!

Oh and please remember if you pre-pay your item as soon as you request it your order will be processed right away.

All other orders will be treated as "estimate inquiries" and will be processed when we have time to do so, in the order that we receive them. Thanks! Back to work now ^_^

I can't tell you how much of a relief it is to finally catch up on all pre-paid DR's, log all PF's into the system and be caught up with all that. I still have 65 orders in the Direct Request pile that were essentially just estimates (people entered them in and got their totals but didn't prepay them) so I will be sending select invoices to relevant orders that are still available.

In the near future I'm going to have a "Please Invoice Me" button or a "Please Save this Invoice" option so you can come back to your orders if you're not quite ready to order when you enter the data. I'm just playing around with some ideas and need some time to consider what's best.

As always, if you have any suggestions, comments or questions just let me know here, by Email or on the site. Thanks again! I'm off to bed now guys. Appreciate all of your support. I'll be working the next two days on the orders after 6PM (working at the University job in the daytime) and will be doing GFC stuff all day Sunday. By Sunday we should be again 100% caught up! WOO HOO!

Hey Goomb,

Could I possibly have a random favor from you? I was wondering if I could use your server to upload one file via FTP. That is, assuming, your server has 5 gigs of space to spare for a day or two.

I need to upload a DVD image for a prototypey thing. A file that I don't want to openly talk about, but... Yes/no? You'd be a lifesaver if you could, but if not, I understand. 5 gigs is ridic for most servers/server rentals.

I was supposed to use another server for it, but they take forever getting me the info (it's been a week).

I asked you to cancel it previously but it's been pretty hectic to it's no surprise you missed it!

Please cancel the following: #1173 / 125433010 - Red Dead Redemption, Split Second & ModNation Racers (PS3) (PF) - Waiting for Items.

I had placed an order for these games with Amazon, but canceled it in favor of ordering them through that massive Gamestop order because the deals were considerably better :) If you'll notice, all 3 games are among the 3 DR's I filed to help you sort out the shipping bundles. That Gamestop order (and subsequently filed direct requests) remain unchanged, but hopefully I can save us both some confusion by asking you to just cancel order #1173 / 125433010

Thanks again :)

Hey,

My order is #1155. It's yellow and says "Waiting for item" and I've been recently billed for it (and payed). However, the package forwarding page says "Once I receive your DR submission and all your items, I will invoice you for the shipping cost plus service fees."

So, can you let me know which one to believe? I'm hoping it's the later because it was an ebay auction that ended 4 weeks ago. If the items haven't arrived I doubt they ever will and I'm running out of time to file for a refund.

RoganSarine, is this a legitimate DVD image? I don't want to get in trouble for hosting something that is potentially pirated or grey area stuff. Please let me know. If it's something of yours that you have the rights to distribute that's different. Also, how many people are going to be downloading this? It sounds like something that would take up a ton of bandwidth. Are you sure you wouldn't be better off setting up a torrent for it?

emjaymj, yeah I remember now that you were cancelling that. Sorry about that. Just wanted to go and list all the items I had in the PF folder. Better to duplicate or over-list than to miss listings. I'll take that one off the list :) Thanks.

Mandulum, sorry for any confusion. I did receive your payment and will ship out as soon as the item is received, but in this case I have not yet received it (I'm going back again tomorrow to my UPS store location and hopefully it'll be there). The reason I send the invoice now is so I can send it out to you as soon as I receive it. I guess I will just have to update the copy on the package forwarding page. Very sorry for any confusion!

Crap, would you be able to let me know if it is or is not there after you pick up your packages tomorrow and go through them? It was only coming from Florida so I would have expected it to be there already. If it's not there I'll start heckling paypal and the seller to get my money back. Thanks.

** Lowball to End all Lowball Sales **

Just giving you guys a heads up. Tonight I will be starting what will be my biggest Lowball Sale ever. For this one, we're going totally old school. All on CAG forums, no rolling end, no automated anything. Just a giant list of items in a thread, a bunch of really great items and whatever they end at, that's it. Sale officially starts tonight and I will be adding new items throughout the entire week. More on this very soon :) I'm hoping to recoup almost all the rest of the money I lost and this will surely clear up a bunch of room in our office.

More on this very soon :) Thanks guys!

Tempted to grab this controller but I already have 3 ps3 controllers. So I am just wondering much would this cost to ship? It says 11.2 ounces but I'm guessing 1lb after packaging.

EDIT: Just noticed your OP has the shipping rates. Do you think it will be 1lb after packaging or 12oz?

For others interested its 34.90 at amazon. Looks like it would be good for FPS expecially if you like the 360 controller.
