Hey guys,

Still in the process of backfilling everything, so if you haven't gotten a THQ, Ubi, or EA coupon yet but should have I'm hoping to have everything updated this afternoon.

Second,

I've been trying to figure out how to respond to the people who are upset that we're giving out $5 to people as a gift. Unfortunately I don't have a good response to this, I can understand price drops...we're handing you a free $5 though in this case. Like I said, I don't have a good response here so I will leave it at:

I'm sorry this is upsetting.

Cheers,
Tony

I've received five EA and five THQ coupons.


Again, any extra (more than one email) per publisher can be ignored, the promo is 1 coupon per publisher per customer.

Tony

FYI on the codes:

1. It is 1 coupon per publisher per customer, not sure why multiple emails went out.
2. Working on getting everyone else backfilled. Gonna take a bit today.

Cheers,
Tony


Thanks for clarifying! Now to figure out which deal I want to spend my credits on for each pub...

As a side note, I also wanted to throw in my thanks for all the awesome deals. I've been lurking this thread for a few months and finally have put together a new gaming rig, and I've been enjoying filling my library with more games than I could ever possibly play from you guys. :)

Anyway I was hoping to get Need For Speed Most Wanted Ultimate Speed Pack DLC for $5 with the credit but the DLC is not in the EA Holiday Present list. Can you fix that Tony ?


Im up for this too!

Anyway, this is brilliant news Tony! Merry xmas to everyone! :D

Also, will you have stock on the Cities In Motion Collection?

I say ignore the upset people. This is a bonus for everyone that purchased a game in 2012, it really isn't a case of buying a game just to have it go on sale cheaper since everyone is getting the same choices to spend the $5 on no matter when in 2012 you bought the game.

I can see the need to respond, but certainly no reason to apologize. Like you said it's a gift; a reward for continued service as a 2012 consumer. I certainly don't complain that Discover card holders get cash back and I don't (I don't have a Discover card), so I see no valid reason for any animosity directed toward you.

They shouldn't be upset. They chose to jump on a deal they thought was good enough to purchase. Only to get butthurt when they find out something like this later. ( I want Spec ops for example, but I didn't want to pay 10$ for it and both bioshock games because I already have them. I was holding out for a 7.49 sale of just spec ops on steam or somewhere else. And now I can get it for 5$! So thanks a lot man! Phenomenal deals!)

It was like during the summer when SR3+all DLC on Steam sold for like 25$ and then a day or two later it sold for 13$ and everyone got butthurt.


Personally, I bought stuff and got the coupons. And i'm very thankful for them! I think it's a fantastic thing you guys did. It's basically like a loyalty program.

I wouldn't let your jimmies get rustled by a few people whom have rustled jimmies and just want to rustle your jimmies for their own call.

I agree with this as well. Just force yourself to buy something that's $5 maybe. I was thinking of the EA Harry Potter set myself.

Maybe Amazon can have some $5 deals for us. :)

Hey guys, this has probably been asked but after spending 10 minutes using forum search tools I got nowhere, so I'm asking again.

I've bought a ton of stuff from amazon lately (thanks, Tony!) and this morning I've got about 10 emails offering me credits etc - this is all well and good but the problem is that not all of them tell me what those credits are FOR or what to be spent on. Is there anywhere in my amazon account I can go to see a listing of pending available promotional codes and their respective limitations?

Some were specifically for THQ, but some of them gave me nothing besides 'Must be used on 12-25-12' - please help me resolve this clutter! I mean, meh, thank you regardless! I'm assuming I can only spend these tomorrow, right?

You won't miss anything :).

AGAIN NOTE: I am in the process of getting everyone who purchased titles from these publishers in 2012 these promo codes. It will likely take the balance of 12/24 to do so.

Here are the details. Just tested everything except 2K (which I have to wait until tomorrow to test):

1. 2K will offer $5 coupons, good for PC Digital 2K products on sale at Amazon.com (greater than $9.99) to every customer who purchased a 2K product in 2012. Coupons can be used from 12/26-12/31

8. Civilization IV Complete
9. The Stronghold Collection
ii. 2K Shooter Pack - $9.99 ($4.99 after coupon) contains:

1. Civilization V GOTY
2. Civilization V Gods & Kings
3. Civilization IV Complete
4. The Stronghold Collection
iv. The WTF Pack - $9.99 ($4.99 after coupon) contains:
1. Borderlands GOTY
2. Duke Nukem Forever (not complete)
3. The Darkness II
v. The Desert to Sea Pack - $9.99 (4.99 after coupon) contains:
1. Bioshock
2. Bioshock 2
3. Spec Ops: The Line
2. Ubisoft will offer $5 coupons, good for PC Digital Ubisoft products on sale at Amazon.com (greater than $4.99) to every customer who purchased a Ubisoft product in 2012. Coupons can on 12/25 only
a. Recommended pairings (none of these activate on Steam):
i. Assassin’s Creed Revelations - $7.49 ($2.49 after coupon)
ii. Assassin’s Creed Revelations Gold - $13.60 ($8.60 after coupon)
iii. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Deluxe - $7.49 ($2.49 after coupon)
3. Electronic Arts will offer $5 coupons, good for PC Digital EA products on sale at Amazon.com (greater than $4.99) to every customer who purchased a EA product in 2012. Coupons can be used from 12/25 only
a. Recommended pairings (these will activate on Origin):
i. Mass Effect Trilogy - $29.99 ($24.99 after coupon) contains:

4. THQ will offer $5 coupons, good for PC Digital THQ products on sale at Amazon.com (greater than $4.99) to every customer who purchased a THQ product in 2012. Coupons can be used from 12/25 only. We’ll have the Tantalizing THQ Medley ($9.99 or $4.99 w/coupon) and the Darksiders II Franchise ($13.19) on sale again on 12/25 too, either would be a good pairing with this coupon.

Cheers,
Tony

Hey Kwirl,

Good question.

Not sure why multiple emails went out but the net answer is:

1. The promo is good for 1 coupon per customer per publisher
2. Participating publishers include THQ, EA, Ubisoft (coupons can be used 12/25 only) and 2K (coupons can be used 12/26-12/31)

I don't know why people are upset, especially since people can still get on the deal now? What's the alternative, you don't give people $5?

Can someone explain to me what the problem is? I really don't get it. If it's because games drop in price and better deals are made later, that's the case with everything ever sold, especially digital games. It'd be one thing if it was like Steam's seasonal sales where they do a daily deal, and a flash deal even lower within the same sale promotion. But Tony and Amazon's attempt here seems like nothing but good will towards us, and it honestly feels like he can do no right here if people are going to complain over a freely given $5 promotion at the end of the calendar year.

Only thing I can see getting so far is Darksiders 2 Franchise pack. That's good enough though. I just hate that all my EA coupons will be going to waste. The only game I think I don't have from them is Alice. I don't even really want the new Most Wanted yet because I'm still playing Hot Pursuit.

I must say that these deals are so great that I'm incredibly overwhelmed. So many great games, but so little time. I'm still on the first continent of KoA:R. I bought that in November. I can't think of what I'll be dealing with in January

Keep it up, Tony!

Exactly. I mean my 2K promo is coming from when I paid $20 for the Desert to the Sea bundle and $10 for Darkness II. So now people could get either one of those for $5 with this promo. It's fine for me. I'm just going to pick up something else I don't have from 2K. Same thing with THQ.

I know the fact DSII was that price very recently maybe makes it sting more for some, but if we all do this "I paid this much and I feel trolled" act then we could be here all day.

You're misunderstanding. I am referring to the Darksiders Deal being put back up and people being allowed to use their $5 credit toward that. If you aren't putting that deal back up (as was reported in this thread) then there isn't a problem. My issue is that I bought the deal on the last day, only for it to be relisted a day later to allow the new $5 to be used toward it. I sent a PM, and I thought I explained it well enough, but apparently not.

The issue is not with the $5 credit. The issue is re-listing one of your sales without notice inside of a week (just a couple days actually) and allowing that coupon (that we weren't given ANY notice about either) to be used against it, thereby making an even better deal. Once again this is punishing early adopters, and you are running a severe risk of alienating people because they will be affraid to jump on a good deal if they know you have a history of screwing over the people that made that deal a success in it's first iteration (like what you did with the paradox deals). This is bad business. I am bringing it to your attention for the second time. If you don't see a problem with it then so be it. But I stand by my initial response that it is a dick move. And not appreciated.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

I think people conveniently forget that they've owned and played the game long before today's date and that's what they paid for when they bought it. This has always been true with video games, especially new releases. It's not like he dropped all these prices within the last week.

DSII is a little different I'll grant you, but the price of DSII hasn't really dropped, you can use the credit on any THQ game. I would seriously give THQ promotions a break anyway, they fire-saled their entirely catalogue and they're still going bankrupt.
