20% compensation works with blue coins.

I might plotz.


Heh, you're right. It's not supposed to apply, but it does.

It means that you can get effective 64% of price by stocking up blue coins now and buying with them later. That's a big deal.

Well I got the Beth pack and will get keys but I would have probably preferred the discount.

Ugh, why would GG refund me just to turn around and honor the glitch? They lost even more fucking money unless they renege on their refund... Whatever, at least the voodoo they did hasn't seen fit to give me a 20% discount, which I have no idea if that is the correct result anymore.

This is the best hope I have of getting a discount on Earth Defense Force: IA. Bought.

That's how America works, after all.

BL2 packs and the rest of the Bethesda pack :applause: that 20% discount tho... I'll still take the packs anyday.

I thought it didn't apply to blue coins?

I got 9 keys and a refund, and still have the other games on my account to be claimed. Now that they are going to honor the final keys I'm worried they will charge me the $30 again.
I'm afraid if I emailed to ask them for clarification that would only prompt them to do so.. hmm..

Of course, it would still be a great deal.

It looks like it will work on coins, but if you look at the checkout page I think it also reduces the amount of coins you get back, so it doesnt really matter

The question now, do you stock up on Blue Coins, knowing their prices are usually not the best, and hope that with an effective 36% discount they become the best, while risking getting the plug pulled on the 20% discount early?

It looks like it will work on coins, but if you look at the checkout page I think it also reduces the amount of coins you get back, so it doesnt really matter

You don't get coins back on purchase of coins, and even if you did it would be a much smaller percentage.

Does anyone have a link to the 20% announcement? I got the email saying I'd get keys but nothing about the discount.

They originally removed both my Bethesda packs and said they'd refund me. No refund was applied to my card so I contested the charge.

Then, a few days ago, one Beth pack returned (no working serials, of course). The other is still missing.

The bank sent a letter stating that they had investigated, reversed the charge, refunded my money and were considering the matter closed.

Now I have one Bethesda Pack (to get keys), a 20% discount and paid zero dollars. Go go, GamersGate!

Damn.... so I guess I get screwed because after my order successfully went through, I called it a night and went to sleep since the site was so hammered. Oh well, can't complain too much, considering....

On a related note, anybody want to sell me a Steam key for Dishonored for $10? ;)

I mean if you purchase 25k worth of coins, when you checkout it says you are paying 20$ and getting back 20k coins. So you get a 20% discount but you arent getting an extra 5k coins for free

You're reading the page wrong. That's how much you would be paying if you pay in blue coins.

I bought some coins. Their prices usually aren't great but their sale prices plus the 5%+5% from the ElderGeek/BC thing tipped a few over the edge. I expect that 20%+20% will allow me to find enough satisfying deals to make the buy worth it.

They fixed it now. A few minutes ago it was the whole coins for the 20% discount.

I'll be trading a copy of BL2 for a BL2 SP. If anyone is interested PM me.

To be honest given a choice I would probably pick the discount but I'm still pretty glad I'll get the keys, especially since I actually bought the pack to get the games and not to resell them.

Gamersgate = fail at customer service. Giving a yearlong 20% discount to those customers that you had to refund money to is a good way to piss of those paying customers who bought things at full price and get nothing. For a whole year.

Which means I probably won't be buying anything from Gamersgate this year.

I fell the same, I though that it was a 20% discount until the end of the month. A whole year knowing that there is 20% discount will get me buying almost nothing, everything that exceed 5$ (except for the 1c bundle) will be a nono for me. Fuck

While I don't feel quite as strongly about it, I do agree somewhat. I'll be less likely to take up deals which I'm on the edge about unless I can get someone with the discount to buy the game/s for me. Knowing that I'm not paying the lowest price available at the time is quite dissuading to me.
