Really? You don't know what indignant means buddy. Why would I pay someone $50 and wait when I can just go to the store and pay $60 and have it right now? Time IS money. Or, why would I use up $20 on gas to hunt down a bundle that's $20 off? Either way, I'm spending $50-$60. No money was saved, which is the point.
Twenty bucks in gas? What're you driving? A Humvee?
I see people say how they're gonna expend a buncha gas to find these deals and that's their main excuse for not wanting to go look for them. If your vehicle is THAT bad on gas that you're gonna waste a ton of gas going to look for a deal, then you need to be shopping for a better car and not game deals.
This isn't moby dick, there is no thrill in the great hunt to save a couple dollars. I also don't buy games that are on clearance just because it's on clearance. I guess that obviously makes me the angry one, right?
Since when is $18 a 'couple dollars'. That's still a substantial discount compared to the original MSRP of these bundles($59.99). Even if they weren't discounted, they are still a pretty decent deal by themselves. The controllers are normally $54.99 and the games in these bundles are typically between $29.99 and $39.99. So at worst, at MSRP you're getting the game for $0 discount and the controller for the usual Black Friday price of $30.
My choice to go cheap on the shipping doesn't make me ornery to your suggestions or your seemingly paranoia when it comes to the post office. I've had all levels of shipping get to me all busted up looking. It happens, I deal with it.
Maybe that's why your packages are getting delivered in beat up shape, since you choose the slowest/cheapest shipping and those methods usually get tossed around a lot more. Either that or your mailman has a grudge against you or hates his job. But I know that if my stuff was arriving all messed up and it happened on a fairly frequent basis, you better believe I'm going to get in touch with both the companies shipping the items and the post office to get that resolved.
And really, sorry about trying to get the thread back on track, perhaps we can start an economic discussion in the best buy thread?
Don't worry. All of this off topic banter will likely be deleted soon enough, while keeping these highlighted/spotlighted deals that should have remained in the mega threads intact 100% for the people who feel they 'deserve' their own thread.
Or, did I just fall for a subtle "you mad, bro?" post?
Nah. I think posting that 'u mad bro' type crap is just plain stupid.
