I'll be grabbing some points, personally. With 1000 points coming out to 25USD, that's like getting a used copy of GoW3 for $25USD shipped, and makes most sales at FS/BB/EB obsolete!

Hah true enough, but that doesn't really solve my spending problem ;)

Bah fine, I'll buy the points at the beginning of next month. Any idea how long the sale runs?

I think I liked the Valentine's Day deals better. $42 for 1000 points is a bit too much for me.

Though, if anyone is interested, my birthday is July 24, ;)

Why would you buy 1000 points for $42 when you can buy 2000 for $50?

Exactly, I'm basically saying that I can't afford that much. During the last sale, when 1000 points and 5 tokens was like $27, I definitely got that (it was a V-Day gift from my wife).

Yeah I think during the V-Day sale I snagged 100 tokens for $50, which was a steal I though, so now I only need to worry about points heh. I'll probably grab 6000 points worth, that should last me a good while!

You buy from other users. You can only purchase from other Canadians, if you want.

Just to elaborate on what neksus said; it's a used game trading site. The FAQ is extremely helpful in outlining what Goozex is all about.

It's a great service, and I've saved boatloads over buying used/new games from local retailers. You do have to be patient, but the benefits far outweigh the negatives.

Damn not even 5 months since the last one, going a bit overboard adding points(adding a bunch this month with the ps3 promo too) .
Goozex has started a couple of nutty threads on the forum proposing changes - "buyer pays the shipping and seller has to use goozex lables" was the last one. Very negative reaction, hopefully they''ll give up on remaking how things work. But it does make me just a bit nervous to load up on too many points

Yeah I hear that; if they do any crazy changes to the system I'll try and just request as many games as I can before the new changes take over, then sell/trade them, I'm sure I'd break even, but I would be devastated to say the least!

I started using Goozex when they had their last sale in February and I'm loving it so far. I didn't really get into it until they added retro trading back in March. Overall, my experience has been positive but the trading for retro games moves kind of slow for Canadians due to too many members only trading within the U.S. I've been first in line for Earthbound since they've added it and it's already been traded 7 times between Americans.

I bought myself a 2000 + 5 tokens gift card and might end up buying another before this sale ends. This deal is really hot.

Time to activate Final Fantasy XIII from my on-hold list!

prices are in USD since it's a US based site

also, whoever said you can only trade with canadians is wrong. you can go into options and choose to deal with americans as well, but than that also means that if you want to receive games from americans that you have to be willing to send games to americans (provided you intend to send anything at all and not just buy your points)

I'm not sure how Goozex works... do you need to trade games or can you just "buy" the games and not send anything in the opposite direction? I hate sending stuff out..

Sweet, I just used up the last of my points from the last sale. Just in time for EB's console trade in deal too, wonderful.

If you buy these "gift cards" then you can just receive games without having to send anything out. Otherwise those points would be earned by sending games out.

Of course if everyone thought that way there''d be a lot of points bought without any games to request...

Its incredibly easy to mail games within Canada, scrawl an address on an envelope, put on $2 in stamps and drop it in a mail box. And end up with way more value then "trade in stores" most of the time.

If you can find some of the $11 ones at FS like darksiders that is a cheaper way to get points. Didnt have any of those here though.

So why not list some of yours on your account and get points for them? You wouldn't have to buy so many during this sale that way.:D

I don't want to get rid of them because I personally would like to keep them and play them some day; that and I lend them out or my brother plays them.

Couldn't you get 1000 points last time? Not sure if I want to dump $50+ on Goozex when my existing requests are still waiting for a match.

Ya you could but I guess they didn't want to do that this time.

Hey everyone,

A little late to posting here, and thanks to game_fanatic for posting quickly! So yeah, we're having a 50% off gift card sale on those shown in the OP.

One way I'd like to think of the gift card sale is that it's 50% off points -- which means it's 50% off all games & movies on Goozex!

The sale ends July 4th and you don't have to be an active trader to purchase a gift card and then get games and movies from other Goozex members.

Reminder: Our PS3 Month promotion ends next week -- and with the gift card promo you can get PS3 games without using tokens.

Happy trading, saving & playing!
