i never read @gamer or game informer. converted @gamer to digital so i can get my coupons faster. may as well leave game informer snail mail since there aren't any coupons in there.


How do you get your coupons when you have the digital mag? I didn't get mine in the mail last month even though I received the digital issue.

Each issue probably costs more than dollar to print and mail.

...Now GS has probably done the math and concluded that worth the hassle/ad rate hit to convert existing print subscribers to electronic to save money. While electronic editions circulation likely don't have the same value in advertisers minds as the print version, the odds are the printing and mailing savings massively outweigh the ad rate erosion caused by shift towards electronic versions on the limited number of ads Game Informer is getting nowadays.


I must admit, I didn't expect such a response in this thread, haha :) +1

I would also like to add: It counts against an employees (maybe only stores) numbers if you sign up for print when you renew. The guy who renewed me was pissed I went with print and was on the phone with the dm talking about how they are only 50% for digital subscriptions.

I remember when this magazine was worth reading...

Eventually I realized there was something wrong with 90% of games reviewed getting a 9.25 though.


But keep in mind, if a game only eked out a 9, you knew it was crap
I enjoy stuff a great deal.

Still waiting for the coupon to show up in my Active Offers tab (signed up first day this thread appeared). Only have the B2G1 from renewing in there right now. Went thru the whole process (even flipped thru the current digital issue for the hell of it), so I'm pretty sure I completed the signup. Has anyone actually got the coupon yet?

It says at the link that the coupon will show up in 7-10 business days.

I still like having the physical mag, too, and have been avoiding their attempts to prompt me to go digital. Even if the ink they use always smears a bit when I hold it, and every time I read it, I end up with light fingerprints on the cover and ink on my fingers and palm where I was holding the mag.

They will have to take the physical mag from my cold dead hands. I am just as pissed OXM gave up the Cds that used to come with it.

I still havent recieved the coupon yet but my membership expires in about 6 days, so I might not get it. Has anyone recieved a coupon that is in the middle of an active membership?

Bumping to remind folks that Monday, 8/13 is the last day to be eligible for the coupon and tablet sweepstakes when converting to digital.

Also, for those who have already done this, how long did it take for the coupon to show up in your Active Offers?

While I like the magazine just fine, my PUR is ending in October and I will not be renewing so this was a no-brainer.

Thanks OP!

This. I refuse to take my Touchpad into the bathroom, and that's where most of my magazine reading happens.

And a measly $5 discount to save them a fortune in printing/mailing? Pretty insulting offer for anyone who took it, if you ask me.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Digital version sucks, there is no app, it's a browser based viewer. I switched back to print.

Does this transfer work with Google play? I just tried the digital version of the mag through that service and came away impressed. Its way better than the standard digital browser based mag. I'd be tempted to switch if so.....

Haven't received mine either and my subscription was switched over the middle of last month. Actually called customer service since I still haven't received my coupon or an update since receiving a generic e-mail reply to my inquiry almost a week ago. Was told they are having issues with the promo (obviously!) and was promised that I will receive my coupon. I'm not holding my breathe and I have the feeling I'll be making another customer service call next week.

Uh points and 10% more trade in credit and 10% off used games.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
