So with that plug in you can buy off amazon using paypal?


No idea, probably not but I never tried. But what does buying off Amazon have to do with this thread, lol.

But this thread is for Hastings Amazon store, this is for goHastings.com which is their direct online store. The sale isnt applicable on their Amazon store so why would you need to pay through Amazon. Hasting only has a store on Amazon, they don't own Amazon.

grrr... their prices are really good, but I've pretty much got a whole pile of unfinished games still. I'm going to pass on buying any more used games till I start finishing the ones I have.

No I know I was just asking because Amazon has some good deals, we're getting off topic.

No idea. There isnt a date of when it ends and I saw this deal last night, so they'll probably at least run it until the end of the weekend. Or at least I hope.

Not yet, but I only ordered this morning, so I'll give them til tomorrow. It says normally ships within 24 hours, so thats what I'll give them.

Also, just saw someone else post this on SD forums and not only is there no credit, he bit off my thread word for word. Copy and pasted bits and pieces. What a douchebag!

I just ordered 6 games for $39.....too bad the shipping was $7. Still a good deal though, especially on older PS2 games

I probably spend more time on CheapAssGamer than I do actually playing games.....which is kinda sad

How come everyone always complains about shipping? OMG i paid 5 bucks to ship some games and saved at least 20 bucks instead of buying them from Gamestop or somewhere else used. Most of the prices on these games is pretty good considering. Guess some people just gotta complain.

stop complaining about people complaining =). in an online shopping environment where people are used to free shipping, anything above 0 is gonna get a complaint. anything above 3-4 days is going to get a complaint. ill complain but im still gonna buy cause its a great deal. ORDERING NOW

picking up :
Blazblue ( FINALLY!!!!!!! WAS LOOKING for one used at gamestop for so long )
Guitar hero 3 with guitar
King of Fighters

Sidenote : i was afaid to buy just because i saw that they said Darksiders was shipping end of this month so i didnt trust the site ahahha. but whatever

I'm more worried about completeness and condition. But it cant be any worse than Gamestop.com used games.

Well from what I got when I called up customer service, they assured me that every game is guaranteed 100% to be complete and the condition is like new since all the used games they sell are customer returns of new games, so they aren't games traded in from other people. But I will let everyone know of the quality once my games arrive. Hopefully the sale won't be over by then. But I have shopped with them from their Amazon store, and every game I have gotten from their Amazon store came in pristine condition and was in fact complete.

Called customer service twice. THe same lady coincidentally picked up both times. SHe said, games are supposedly like new and complete. Asked her how long the sale shall be going on for, and she said the site was just updated, last week, and has received no word on length, but she imagines it to be for a few weeks, fyi.


WOuld people who have shopped off the website before mind relaying their experience with goHastings? Never purchased anything from website before. After speaking with customer service, I imagine them having huge issues with mass order overload.

And does anyone have or know promotional codes to dish out for the order? Possibly free shipping?

Shipping and tax really kills this. My total for three $17 games is $45 after shipping and tax. Basically almost no discount.

I had to pick up Blazblue, Dragonquest 5, Class of Heroes in one order after tax and shipping averaged 30 a game.
And I got Dragonquest 4, Master of Monster Lair and DDR Supernova 2 averaged for 10 a game.

They were essentially 21 or so dollars a game, which I think is super. Thanks OP.

Yeah, not as great if you get charged tax. I'm tax free for them to ship to me. So definitely worth it.

Parts of my 2 orders has shipped, lol. So far 2 games from my first order has shipped and 1 game from my second order has shipped. So not really sure what to make of that, but I guess its better than none of them shipping.

Here's why no retailer should ever add a shipping and handling charge.

Let's say I see a game for $15. I tell myself "hey that's a good deal, I'll buy that". Now I've just made a "mental contract" to buy the item for $15. I put the item in my cart, and go to checkout. Now I'm being charged $3 for s/h. I've already agreed to buy the item for $15, and now the retailer is changing the price, and charging me 20% more. Anybody that knows business knows that significantly changing a contract at the end of a deal will pretty much break most deals, even if they are still getting a good offer. I think I'm buying the item for $15, and the retailer changes the price by 20% when I'm ready to buy.

This is why it's better to add shipping into your prices... yes it's harder for your accountants, but it's better for your business.
