Crap, I missed the $1 shipping. How often does it come around?


You're in luck. Next week's promo is $0.96 shipping. I've updated the first post with the info.


For those of us who bought too many books a few weeks ago: I'm still waiting on one more book. One of my hardcovers arrived too damaged for me to want to keep it, so I'm going to have to send that one back. Other than that, and two gross condition paperbacks that I cleaned up, I'm pretty happy with the books I received.

Updated the first post. Thanks. For those who don't want to spend $35, they'll have $0.96 shipping next week on used games/music/movies.


One of my books appears to be stuck at a USPS sorting facility for 13 days now. I emailed Hastings to ask if they could do anything about that, but they just refunded me.

Well, I got my "used" Kinect from GoHastings today, and I had to take a few pictures of it just to share. Not only did it show up fairly quickly, but it isn't in the least bit used. It's still brand spanking new just like it would be if I went to WalMart to buy it off the shelf right now...

So if you want a Kinet, and want to save around $75 or so, then give it a shot as well. Sometimes I get ticked off at GH, but when they do something right they really do something right!

Here is the exact link I used to buy from:

http://www.gohasting...u/282936743.uts

There is a $5 off code out there too for a game. I got the above with a used (truly used) Kinectimals but in great, complete, condition for a total of just under $90.

That's a really tempting price on the kinect, Downhome. I added it to my wishlist so I can hopefully pick one up in a few weeks. Thanks!

First post updated.

Don't think I'll bite on anything with $0.96 shipping. Its only a better deal than 30% off if the game is cheaper than $4.40. And of course they may drop a random free shipping day(s) somewhere too, especially as we near Black Friday over the next couple of months.

Still jonesing for another 40% off books but I'd probably settle for 30% off.

During their last 40% off sale, they managed to send me the wrong GN of Cowboy Bebop and it was marked as the right one in my order status. I asked them to send me the copy I actually ordered, explaining how the error was their fault, and they said they'd only send it if I sent the other one back. Really? It cost $1.20. No way in hell I'm paying postage to return something they shouldn't have screwed up in the first place. They should at least be competent enough to get the SKU number right. =\

They have a generic return label that they can email you where I assume the post office collects the cost when the package makes it to where ever it gets sent to. CS should have offered you this. Email them again, or I could give you the PDF. No guarantee they'll send you the correct book though. They're pretty terrible about doing replacements and about checking SKUs. Lazy employees just grab the title that sounds the closest.

I heard about this from someone else in another thread, but Gohastings currently has the "2 for $10" sale for used books w/ free shipping when you use the coupon code CRANNY.

http://www.gohasting...ntName/BOOK.uts

I couldn't find two books I wanted that were both in stock (only the FFX-2 guide, finally in stock at about $3), but this could be good for others.

Had ordered the Final Fantasy 13 CE guide a few days after the 40% off code expired (was OOS during then after it pops back up) and received it on Friday, only it turned out to be the Final Fantasy 12 LE guide. I was bummed, so sent them an e-mail the next day telling them it was wrong and I'd like to return it for a refund. This morning I get a response that they were sorry and they'd issue the refund, but that I could keep the mistake guide. Wow. Now let's see if that refund comes through.

I've never heard a refund not coming through once they said they authorized the refund. It may take a few days to appear on your credit card statement, but you'll get your money back.

You can't help but think Hastings would be saving money if their employees just did a better job. They've got to be losing a lot in the way of letting customers keep wrong items, shipping wrong items back and forth, the fees credit card companies charge them for transactions and refunds, etc. All because some employee didn't bother to match up the proper SKU from the order to the item and check the item before shipping it out.

Here is the image for their book sale with various promo codes from the email they sent this morning. 2 for $10 nor 2 for $15 (for TPBs) seem particularly good unless its a super recent title, so I'm not compelled to add them to the OP. Because its "book month" I'll hope there is a bigger and better sale like 30 or 40% off one of these weeks.

Obviously. Thats nothing new when it comes to GoHastings. I'll put it like this: If you can find one or two items that come out to just over $20 (total), and that price just over $20 is a deal in and of itself, then the $5 off is basically free shipping. But otherwise, yes, shipping kills the deal.

Even though I previously posted that historically popular GoHastings phrase "shipping kills it," $18.26 for LA Noire was too good to pass on this time. Under $20 was the sweetspot and you win again, GoHastings - just no unreadable disks this time, please.

Okay, I've got some updates on deals for GoHastings that I found snooping around. It does not appear that they are running any new weekly deals beginning next weekend (10/9) for any departments. I assume that means $0.96 shipping will continue to be the deal. However, starting 9/16, it looks like we're going to get:

You mean compared to the current $0.96 shipping deal?

If the game's price is under $5.28, go with 96 cent shipping.

If the game's price is over $5.28, wait for the 25% off. However, prices and stock can fluctuate in ways that are not in your favor, so you have to be willing to gamble to wait it out another week or so for the 25% off.

And of course there is no telling when they might drop another free shipping day or days on us, or perhaps even a limited 30% off games sale. Although my guess is they won't be dropping any free shipping limited promotions over the next week while they run $0.96 shipping again (I'm assuming). And they probably won't drop a limited 30% off games while running a longer term 25% off promotion.

Of course we're under 2 months away from Black Friday so you'd hope big sales like those are on their way.

I'm gearing up to throw down for some more books though in another week. I just can't resist at slightly over $2 for a hardcover. Last time around the Post Office lost one of my packages so I want to re-order that book. I sent another back because I wasn't happy with the banged up condition, but I won't be re-ordering that one from Hastings.
