Prices went up across the board on everything it seems. A lot of DVDs and games on my wish list jumped up a few bucks. I noticed a few non-graphic novel books on my wishlist which were sort of at their bottom price of $3.49 have now jumped up to $5.37. That's a pretty huge price increase. I hope this isn't a permanent thing. It's also strange they'd choose to do this on the day they offer a sale where more people are likely to notice such a dramatic increase. They could have done this on Saturday/Sunday night and it would have been less obvious.

Got a HC book in a ripped poly bag today. Looks like the store closest to BOZEMAN, MT didn't get the memo. Luckily the book wasn't damaged aside from corner dulling and the stress of going through USPS machines basically unprotected. It was still in very good shape. It's just annoying because I'm pretty confident the book could have been in even nicer, near mint shape had they just sprung for the bubble mailer. Ridiculous.

I'll be the contrarian this time and say that the CDs I ordered during the sale didn't noticeably go up in price. Maybe I should've bought more while I had the chance.

I've also never had a polybag come in. Guess I should consider myself extremely lucky (except for the fact that my Walking Dead Compendiums never made it out of the black hole in that Idaho USPS).

Sweet a code that works on comic books. I picked up Hush volume 2, Batman R.I.P and Final Crisis for $16.

Ordered 1 copy of Dead Space 3 for PS3

You guys can save 26 cents by using this other book as filler (instead of the one kodave posted in the OP): http://www.gohasting...u/286488985.uts

That's showing up as free now, knocking you out of qualifying for $10 off.


First post updated - 25% off used books, movies, and CDs with free shipping. Excludes graphic novels and video games. $5 Off $25 and $10 Off $40 appears to be good still, as the email last night indicated it would be running all week.

Great, got my fill of CDs for a while thanks to this promo. I'm proud of myself for holding back on buying anything else for the time being; can't spend what little I have left after school on nothing but books and music, even if most of them wouldn't cost me more than $4 or $5 each. It adds up over time, and my backlog is unimaginable.

I'm sure most of you can relate, though. Bet some of yours are much, much worse than mine.

Looks like Hastings killed the Dead Space 3 deal after their debacle of pricing it $39.99 instead of letting the code change the price.

Far Cry 3 is now $39.99 with the code SKORPION.

:lol: Don't you just hate Hastings sometimes? Same thing happened to me. And as if graphic novels aren't eligible now...blah. Maybe they'll drop their prices for the next good deal. Another 5/$25 new would be nice.

There's 30% off used books right now that includes graphic novels. It's in the first post. 25% Off with Free Shipping is a better deal than 30% Off Plus Shipping if the book is under $19.20.

You're only paying probably $0.50 to $0.75 more on a one graphic novel book order using 30% off compared with a theoretical 25% Off with Free Shipping that included graphic novels.

And of course you can spread out that $0.96 shipping cost when you order multiple books.

While graphic novels being excluded is incredibly lame, in this particular scenario, graphic novels being excluded from this one day promotion isn't really a huge deal unless you're buying just one graphic novel and that extra $0.50 to $0.75 is a deal breaker on what you want to pay.

It doesn't really help that Hastings raised prices across the board in most instances though in terms of trying to get a good deal. If its nothing that's a hot mover or something you're not going to read immediately, you're probably better off saving up your money and waiting out a 5 For $25, 7 For $21 or even a 40% off sale.

Thanks for the 30% code. Where did it come from? I normally try to wait till there's a 40% but I'm wondering if this is the last code that will even work on graphic novels...

Incidentally, before I noticed the 30% code, I found that a few manga are categorized under fiction or juvenile fiction, not graphic novels, so they aren't excluded from the other code.

It came from their books section. It's been up since Sunday. And not all graphic novels are excluded from the promotions that say "Graphic Novels Excluded." If you look at the "Comics and Graphic Novels" subsection, there's usually around 700 qualifying titles, but I imagine its stuff that doesn't sell and it also seems to have quite a bit of manga in there too.

Hastings isn't going to give up having sales on graphic novels, they're just going to be more selective about it since I'd wager people show a tendency to buy graphic novels without a code, and graphic novels are a top seller for them.

I ended up biting on a handful of CDs with today's deal. Figured I'd give it a try on a few cheap CDs. With the 25% off and free shipping, I got 4 CDs for about $5 shipped. Not bad. Hopefully they'll be in decent shape with booklets.

The games page is showing the Dead Space 3: LE for $39.99 after code EVANGELIZER, but the code isn't working at the moment.

So either Hastings intends to bring that deal back sometime tomorrow, or the image promo is incorrect and should still be the Far Cry 3 one.

The Dead Space 3 EVANGELIZER code is working again. I know Dead Space 3 is the Amazon DOTD at $39.99, but if Amazon charges tax in your state and Hastings doesn't, that $2.28 shipping fee might be less than the sales tax on Amazon.

It does have tracking. Check your shipping e-mail. If it's a string of just numbers, it was shipped via USPS. If it's letters and numbers, UPS.

Sometimes the Hastings system glitches and doesn't include the tracking number in the email. If the game was the only item in the order, the tracking number should be available in your order history on the website.
