Meh, they just had a 30% off everything used sale, if you didn't want anything then you probably won't want it now.

 

They actually have a few movies and music I want in stock right now that weren't in stock during the 30% sale.:-x

Do the 40% off sales ever apply to video games? I'm pretty familiar with GoHastings sales but I've never bought video games there, just books, DVDs, and CDs.

^ I've been shopping here for three years, and I don't recall a time in recent memory when they've done 40% off games. I think they may have done a few back before they redesigned the site and changed their pricing scheme, but generally whenever they have a sale on games they also raise the prices of said games. Then there's shipping to consider; for some reason they can send books for 96 cents per order, but all games (which weigh less than books) cost $2.28 per item. You'd think they'd figure out a way to make shipping games better.

they can send books media mail, whereas games cannot be sent media mail, so if they can combine several into one order, books are cheaper to mail than games. One by one, its generally kind of a wash

There was a 40% off 4+ items in late January, IIRC.

40% offs have always been pretty rare. There were basically 2 seperate 40% off used video games in January, but it was the buy 4 or more deal. Cyber Monday had a normal 40% off.

Just wanted to throw this out there that Persona 4 Golden is $21.00 (before shipping) after the 25% code, for those of you who don't mind buying it used  ;)


There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Looks like they're done with the 25% off used games, meaning no promotions at the moment.

 

Though I suspect something will come into play for July 4th, like a "flash sale" or some kind of similar sale.

 

For those wondering, last year they ran this for the 4th of July:

40% Off Used When You Buy 4 Or More
Includes used video games, books, CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays
Use Code: HAPPYBIRTHDAY
Valid: Wednesday, 7/4 Only

 

Then after ran:

30% Off Used When You Buy 3 Or More
Use Code: MACARONI
Valid through: Saturday, 7/7

 

So maybe it will be similar this year.

Actually according to several USPS employees at multiple location and myself video games can be shipped media mail. I've done it many times with no issue on either end. Technicality a video game is like a movie both can be shipped media mail because they are digital media.

 

Edit: actually after looking at the USPS website it does say not including video games odd. lol guess the employees don't care. But, honestly most of them wouldn't know the difference in a video game and a dvd if it bit them on the bum.

The thing is, they charge you shipping per item because they come from multiple locations. If you buy 10 books and they all come from a different location, you still only pay 96 cents total in shipping despite however much shipping amounts to on each of the packages. If you buy 10 DVDs and they each come from a different location, you still pay 96 cents per DVD despite the media mail rate. But if you buy 10 games and 4 of them come from the same place, you pay $2.28 per game including the ones that came together. They should really work on their shipping methods, including those god-awful cardboard/bubble mailers they typically cram everything in.

Can anyone go to an item page for a Ranma 1/2 manga (any volume number of the new editions, like the first 5 results when you search "ranma")?  It gives me an error every time, possibly because of the slash in the title.  Any clever workaround so that I could buy one of them?

These 'Qualifying Titles' sales are so awful. They really coudln't do an overall 40% off for 4th of July? Seems like a long time since we have gotten one.

I was about to give up as I thought all the anime I wanted was oos, but decided to do one more quick search, and though the majority of the things I wanted were indeed oos, but surprisingly found stuff I was on the fence on was in stock, so that's always a nice surprise...for my wallet that is.

World War Z was pretty interesting. The Kane Chronicles were kinda disappointing, but I'd imagine they were intended for a younger audience than me. If you don't like the first (if you try it out), you probably won't like the the following two. I've heard good things about Heroes of Olympus.

Haha, same here! I won a contest and had a $50 gift card to spend (before they changed their website) and ended up with 40 or so books in one order, and almost all of them were shipped individually. The mailman wasn't happy.

Even if you do find something in stock, there's no guarantee that the 40% off would apply to it. I just ordered six graphic novels and only four of them got the 40% off. Not a big deal since each of them were less than $2, though. 

 

You could look through the list they provide (x) but it'd be easier to just add stuff to your cart and find if it's applicable.

Probabably talked about before, a few $1.99 blurays (some blu/dvd combos came up) including the dictator, ghost rider, 5yr engagement, red, safe and 360. Not the best but if you need an item to get to four, pretty good deals for about $2.00 shipped.
