Sorry I'm totally new to all this video game bargain hunting, can I get a dumbed down cliff-notes version of what this amazon gold box thing is all about?:bouncy:


Read and be learned.
Gold Box Deals Look at Deal of the Day (12 AM PST) and Lightning Deals (multiple times throughout the day)

Alarm set for 2 minutes before the DotD. I am prepared to be disappointed by everything except only a moderate reaction to one deal!

Edit: And BioShock went back up to $30. I am going to officially guess that's one of the deals. It will either be $19.98, or $22.99. Keep the guesses going! Only three and a half more hours for uneducated speculation :-P

What is the point of staying up to the "deal of the day" if it runs throughout the entire day? When do the lightning deals usually start?

Because if the deal is really good then they will run out of the item quick.

But usually the DotD is the weakest compared to the hourly deals no? I'm not too sure but that's how I remember it. I usually sleep late so it doesn't matter for me though haha. Hopefully there will be some good deals.

Does the staff of the Gold box at amazon give any hints as to what deal they will put up?

Often they do, though I haven't seen any this time.

Hmm, is there an actual page to see where they'll have everything set up, or is it more of a check Amazon at "x" time and you'll see.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/goldbox/ That should work but in case CAG messes it up, it's just amazon.com/goldbox or go to amazon.com and click on Today's Deals.

About 2 and a half more hours. I've got a $10 gc I've been saving up for a day like this so they better have something good! Here's hoping to something good on inFamous, KZ2, LBP or Prototype. I highly doubt it, but oh well.

If there's anything that piques my interested for $25, I won a $25 gift cert from that Coca-Cola promotion... so I may use it on that.

I also just picked up inFAMOUS yesterday (thanks to Gamestop's B2G1 deal and some games I traded in that I knew I would never play/finish [side note: am I one of the only PS3 owners who did not like Resistance 2?])

I'm hopin for prototype but also have an eye on RE5 and Fifa 09. WOW!!! There is probably no way that there will be a deal for me... But oh well... beats those outrageous gamestop prices.

Hoping for something with trophy support or something exclusive on the cheap. A DS3 less than $35 shipped would be money.

Basically, every couple of hours, Amazon puts up a new game deal that's only available for a few hours.

The first one will be the deal of the day, then the next one typically goes up 6am PST.

Why would you stay up for 24 hours for this?

They will have all the hints at midnight/3 AM EST and people usually make accurate predictions within a few minutes. If there is a question on one of the hints and you think you might want it, set the alarm, wake up for five minutes, order it, then go back to sleep.

It would be funny if all the ps3 fans waited up all these hours and halo 3 would be the midnight deal, then the next deal would be gears 2. LMAO.

It will be a few crappy games, discount on the remote or a controller. Nothing special.
