They cut my debit card and are sending me a new one so i'm stuck using checks til the new one comes in.

I wonder, got a copy of that when it first came out on PC disc, is it something you can just "add" to your Steam game library for future download use?

My card was denied and frozen as well when I tried to purchase Civ V. I guess my bank doesn't trust foreign transactions.

It should probably be added to OP that this is a foreign transaction and will freeze everyone's cards.

Mine charged 88 cents as a transaction fee as well.

I've bought games from GOG (which is a foreign transaction) and never had my card freeze or get a transaction fee. Not everyone has a credit card with these problems.

Save 10$ or have my card frozen. Choices. Too bad Paypal doesn't work. Looks like I'll just spend the extra 10$.

It says in the OP that they are located in the UK and it also says that if this is a foreign transaction your financial institution may charge you a currency conversion fee.

As mogamer noted, this is not a problem for all cards/financial institutions as several people (myself included) have been able to make purchases with no issues.

It wasn't a big deal to get my card unfrozen. I just had to call my bank to verify the attempted charge. I used Paypal to pay for the game and it wasn't a problem.

I discovered the problem when I tried to get some food at a a drive-thru. The guy just gave me the food for free so I wouldn't hold up the line.

Civ V for $12.00 and free lunch, YMMV.

I ordered magika and DLC for it a couple months ago from this site and had no issues with card freezing or transaction fees. I guess my bank doesn't care about me :(

Citi gave me a call about 10 minutes after the transaction. They asked my name, phone number, and a security question. Then asked if I authorized the charge. I said yes, and they said thank you, they'll continue with the charge and will unfreeze my account immediately.

I actually appreciated the quick but thorough level of security on their part.

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

I must be one of the lucky ones. I didn't have any issues with my bank at all. They did call me to make sure it wasn't a fraudulent charge, and I had to verify my identify via an extra step with my bank before completing the purchase, but no extra charges or credit card freezing.

so i finally played Civilization 5 for a little over a hour last night (picked it up for $11.00 on sale), and I am really enjoying it. It is a really fun game and improves 4 really well...

GMG's site is a bit wonky with currency. If you log in to their site, it should display things correctly (if not, open a ticket with support and they will fix it).

I can confirm that the price for Bioshock 2 is $5.98 USD. See: Weekend Deals

my bank cut off my card due to "suspicious activity" though they cut off my card before calling me or letting me know in any way.
They eventually called later that day and i did confirm that i made that purchase on a foreign website but by then they had already "burned" my card so i have to wait a week to get a new one

Sorry for the late update, pulled the code and added some miscellaneous sales they are having this week and a few select preorders, mostly shit so far. I am super busy today but tonight I will try to update the OP with a comprehensive list of deals and discounted preorders.

OP is updated with all of the current sales and most of them have a % off associated with them to help you decide if it is a good deal or not. I also added all preorders that currently on sale. I will work on formatting and adding in preorder discount percentages tomorrow.

Note that today's deal is mainly Elements of War for $10.18 (66% off), the other games overlap with the Jowood sale.

Nope, it's the drm free version. Usually on GMG if a game can be registered on steam, it will say so on the game's store page.
