These items are sold by sellers who all have different shipping policies.

Some sellers don't offer expedited shipping so you are stuck with media mail.

The code is still working as of 4am. I can't believe I placed another order.

I just realized now that I fit a bunch of media formats all into one order. I bought 1 Wii game, 1 ps3 game, 3 xbox 360 games, 1 blu-ray, 1 hd dvd, and 1 DVD for $25 total shipped. If I bought them all from the same seller, he would have thought I was on crack. :-)

My mail person is definitely going to think I'm on crack or something when they deliver like 50+ separate packages to my house over the next couple weeks.

My mail person already hates me because of my GoHastings orders... this is going to be an insane 2-3 weeks of packages.

Yes, multiple accounts. I created 2 accounts and my wife did the same so we got 6 orders for tons of shit: books, CDs, games (DJ Hero New for $2!) and so on.


Awesome, thanks. Last evening I made a second account and bought another round of 7 games with FREESHIP. Mostly older stuff including a $6 Halo 3.

I was getting frustrated yesterday with balancing a $10 minimum amount of purchases while keeping my shipping near $25.

Did an order for some BOOKS that came to $10.66 with a $24.93 shipping credit. 7 items in total.

Expedited shipping is only offered for sellers with strong track records, similar to eBay PowerSeller status.

The fee structure for Half.com is interesting, it's a straight 15% of the purchase price and 90% or so of the shipping fee is credited to the seller. There's no 3% PayPal fee, so it's not too bad for sellers.

Anyone ever sold on Amazon?

Something annoying about Half.com -- is that the default release date on Asura's Wrath is set in the future... meaning you have no option to buy the game... even though sellers have it listed. Odd.

I can second the condition notion. Ordered games in Very Good to Good condition and two of them look as if they crawled here over miles of jagged rocks. Already got a refund from one seller. Hoping that the rest of my games arrive is the described condition. Bleh.

Yeah, you're just hoarding crap (literally mostly crappy games that are in crappy condition), so what does it matter?

I haven't got anything yet, but I'm in agreement that you need to hold sellers to the listing standards. Half.Com's are way more lenient with their item condition listing standards than even eBay or Amazon Marketplace though, so I imagine it could be an uphill battle. But if the dispute process is anything like eBay/PayPal's, it should be in the buyer's favor.

It might sound like overkill but I did my best to research everyone I purchased from - who had the most detailed item condition listings, who had the best feedback. You'd be amazed at the sellers with 98% positive feedback who have like 15 complaints against them this past month because items weren't in the condition stated, or the seller never shipped the item. That's a huge red flag to me, because while they're usually high volume sellers, chances are there's more people who don't even bother with feedback who had bad experiences, and it seems like the odds of getting something in poor condition are higher with them than just some person with 100% positive seller feedback selling their stuff on a personal and not business level. I'd rather order from someone like that than one of these giant resellers or the companies that group listings from all of the major resellers like Alibris or what have you.

haha. It's most definitely deal of the year for hoarding old crap that's less than two dollars. :) I bought a couple things that were $10 or more, but most everything is just cheap stuff.

Funny you post this, I finally received my Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition PS3 game that was supposed to be (Like New).

Yeah right, the game's case was completely beat up, had 4 stickers on the back and the top of the spine it looked like a dog had chewed on it. Not to mention it has a "MLB" sticker, so this punk definitely swapped cases.

The guy has 2500 something + feedback, and only 2 negatives so I figured it was a safe buy from him. I only shelled $9 but it still ticks me off when people so blatantly lie about the shape of the item. Although I guess it could've been a user error, not sure if he's a store or what. I'm definitely not keeping this crap though that's for sure, so going to see what he says before sending it back.

Received my Like New GunValkyrie, and it came in a generic dvd case. I informed the seller - wasn't even going to leave negative feedback - that it should have come in a green case. He responded by saying that the game and insert were in Like New condition, so there was nothing wrong. :roll: Not going to argue this :censored: again.

My Very Good condition Dino Crisis came in a completely destroyed case with red and white gunk all over it. Probably won't be able to find another one of these special 2-disc jewel cases, but oh well.

Neither of these were too bad, and everything else so far has arrived in appropriate condition.

Sounds pretty bad to me, along with one pretty arrogant seller. Why not just leave them negative feedback even if you don't want to argue with them.

So far I have been blessed / lucky with my stuff. Some of my 75 cents CDs are brand spanking new even though they were advertised as "good" (including Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie 2 CD for 75 cents :)) . My $2 DJ Hero (360) came in brand new and sealed. I have not received my books so we will see. Rock Band 1 came in almost new ($1) and Rock Band 2 was clearly used by a family but can't complain for 75 cents. My wife got her books and some of them were new and others were fine with no marks or anything.

I haven't bought many games since I have a massive 3 year log but CDs and books have arrived perfectly. Hope don't jinx myself...

Total damage has been 4 orders for me and 4 more for the wife.

20+ CDs, 3 games and 6 books for me = $48 plus the damage done by my wife.

Just got my copy of Chameleon Twist that I ordered, ended up being the second game instead of the first. I actually don't mind though since the second game is a bit harder to come by/expensive and I don't have it. Makes me hope that the rest of the stuff I ordered comes in okay.

You're 100% correct on this. Generic case means it's not like new. The seller could have at least apologized or accepted the fact that he made a mistake.
