I'm stupid and a moron, huh? Seems to me like the only one acting like one here is you, no offense.

As I wrote, I have plenty of Amazon credit and am not spending any money. I do this deal -- in simple math which I wrote above -- I end up spending $110 of my Amazon credit and get back $78 (after trading in those two games). So in the end, I end up having doled out a grand total of $32 of my Amazon credit for FABLE III.

That's not $3 or $5. That's nearly $30 off the MSRP.

Do you get that, or am I still a moron in your universe? lol.


This dude flamed me in a previous thread for no reason. Ignore him. He's just trolling CAG.

Maybe this is a stupid proposition, but the only game on that list I might want is Fable 3. I might be down to split a 3 pack with 1/2 other people.

This is for steveliv who has explained what he's paid. He paid $65 cash and $45 in credit for Fable 3 and $33 more in credit. That's the exact deal he got, not $31 for Fable. If you guys don't understand basic Math it's not my problem, a lot of people have trouble with it.


I just don't think you understand that the $45 in credit i used was FREE to me. the same as if i had found $45 or won $45. I didn't work or pay for it, it was simply given to me. I understand basic math, but if I think that the $45 in credit that i used was the same as if amazon took another $45 off the price then let me. i don't think in the same terms as you, but that doesn't make my view any less valid than yours. if i won a contest which gave me $100 and then i bought a $200 item, to me i only spent $100 on the item. i'm thinking in term of net cost. anyways, lets agree to disagree, you aren't going to change my mind, and i'm not going to change yours.

in other news, i just got an email from amazon yesterday that my order shipped, and when i checked the ups tracking number this morning it says it is already out for delivery! i didn't even select or pay for next day. that is what i love about amazon prime. all my orders come in two days, and sometimes every once in awhile they get shipped in 1 day, all for free (Yes for free SMITTYBLAZE, i didn't pay a penny out of my own pocket for my prime membership, i had my family members pay it for me :) )

Wow... I have Amazon Prime too. I got it for FREE because I'm a student. I didn't need to leech off of others for it. I knew you were nothing more than a punk surviving from leeching and taking advantage of online mistakes. So sad..


you really are something else. you should become an official arbiter at CAG for the way you pass judgement so quickly. you really like to jump to conclusions. i shared my prime with my siblings, we each paid $20, and my $20 came from my credit card rewards. so while i got my part for free (i'm sure you won't think that) we all paid the same amount.

also, what online mistake did i take advantage of?

Do what I did and get a friend to pitch in $40 towards a game they want and then it saves both of you money.

wrong you spent 164 bucks on 3 games.... - 54 for the 3rd game so say you spent 120 on 3 games amazon is giving you 78 bucks credit so you still paid 42 bucks for fable ...

cause you used the 25 buck gift card you had and the halo reach credit so that is money you could of spent on other stuff. so its not like your only out 65 buck.. Yes 65 buck cash but not a total of 65


Actually he spent $110, cause of the B2G1.

Or sell one on eBay. Any of those games will net you at least $40 if not more sealed. Fable or TFU2 would sell for at least 50.

NBA 2K11 will too. I had both of my NBA 2K11s for the 360 sell at the Buy it Now price of $50. :)

Or Glyde. I was looking and most of these will sell for at least 50 on glyde new which nets you 46 or so dollars there. Idk what the eBay cut is and if you use Glyde but it's just an option.

I also know some people who are selling one of the games back to amazon like NBA 2k11 for about 39 trade in. Hence the pointless arguing in above threads. I guess it all comes down to which service you use and if credit with that service is as good as cash to you.

Really? While I'm personally not interested in any of these games, I find it hard to believe that would make it "not worth mentioning", because most of the games on this list are A-list games that a large majority of gamers would be interested in. I'd understand your comment more of this was another list of 25 different "Petz" and "Imagine" games, but it's not.

The Sims 3, Fable III, NBA 2K11, The Force Unleashed II, Medal of Honor...

None of these games aren't worth mentioning? These are all quality games. What sort of selection do you want? Halo Reach, Madden 11, and a Black Ops preorder? :P

I bought two Fable 3's and an NBA 2K11, put a sealed Fable 3 up on eBay with a $40 starting bid, figured it'd sell for at least $45-50, checked and it didn't even sell. Thank goodness, someone could have ended up with a $40 Fable 3. Here's hoping it brings at least $45 so I can get some money back :lol:

The key to selling on eBay is a 1 day listing, starting at 99 cents. 4pm-10pm end time.

I've sold thousands of dollars worth of games and other stuff on eBay, always with those 3 rules when listing.

I have sold thousands as well, but sometimes I'll set the reserve high. I PM'd a cag on here about one of the Fables, maybe he'll buy it. I don't wanna make a huge profit, just enough on both the Fables to get me NBA 2K11 at a decent price.

NBA 2K11 will too. I had both of my NBA 2K11s for the 360 sell at the Buy it Now price of $50. :)


but ebay charges 15% for buy it now auctions. that's 50-7.5 = 43.50

i guess that's better than hoping it reaches $45 - 9% = 40.95
