Posted 26 December 2012 - 12:52 AM

Ohh no, you're not blaming me for this:

1. I repeatedly stated that I had no issue with the $5 credit's, but rather the fact that the Darksider's Franchise Pack, which I bought on the supposed "last day" of the sale, was re-listed just a day later so that the coupon code (which we weren't given any notice about) could be used against. To repeat: If the Darksiders Franchise Pack had not been extended to allow the coupon to be used against it, I would have had nothing to complain about. I would have simply seen there was nothing else I was interested in applying the coupon to, and went on my merry way.

2. There were only a very few people who complained (and yes, I was the most vocal) who were also affected by the having bought the Darksiders Deal, but what you guys are talking about now (EA not wanting to drop prices, making sure games at lower prices expire before the coupon can be used, etc.) are unrelated. The only reason people are pissed at me is because Tony said specifically that the response on this forum and no others was the direct cause of the complainers to the $5 coupon and also the data for sales already being strong: http://www.cheapassg...postcount=11700
http://www.cheapassg...postcount=11708

3. More than a week ago, Tony promised "impactful" deals at Christmas. Time and time again, post have been written asking where these deals were, and Tony's response was that that particular post was written early and that it no longer applied: http://www.cheapassg...postcount=11700
In other words, Tony was capable of doing deeper discounts but decided not to, because as he claims "Since there was so much conversation around people feeling upset around the $5 coupon we decided not to go deeper than the BF promos since it was arguably within a month."

My first post on the subject was at 8 AM yesterday. Something isn't right here. First, He claims because of the reaction to the $5 coupon code on this forum, however as we all know it takes weeks to put the pricing for sales and discussions/contracts between the publishers to make these deals happen. We are all supposed to believe that Tony scrubbed ALL of those plans because of a handful of complaints (on a separate issue, regarding only one game the coupon was being applied to) on one forum (when these deals are posted in many, not just by him, but are everywhere (steamgifts,slickdeals,etc.) on the internet, and did so in less than 24 hours before they were to go on sale?!? So he made the decision (as he claims) to cost Amazon potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars because of a few whiners? I'm not buying that, or the statment that they were scrubbed for market research. Even CheapLikeAFox noted "Seems odd the promo would be altered or held back for them when I thought the majority was happy with it." I agree. It's to fishy. That did not come about because of me. Tony states "Again, we're collecting data not shooting from the hip, and the end goal is to create a better experience for the customer." http://www.cheapassg...postcount=11892

I don't want to get banned here (or silenced) as I only made a complaint about a separate issue and it's being used (by both forum posters and the Amazon rep) as an excuse to further their own agendas, or use as a scapegoat. But blaming me for what's happened when it so clearly has been blown out of proportion (and I clearly, as can be seen from my post on the matter, had no malice toward him,Amazon, or anyone) is not being truthful, or fair......to anyone.

My EA code doesnt seem to be working...tried with 3 different games (all well over $5) and it doesn't apply the $5 promotional credit as it should. Was the EA promotion pulled early?

EDIT: Seems others having the same issue too

I just got the 2K email, now need to think what to get lol

It seems that EA promo credit was deleted from the system or something, me and 2 friends don't have it working anymore but THQ and UBI work fine.
It is not a big issue cuz there is nothing interesting in EA list but just wanted Tony to know

Again, apologies for all the back and forth about this. My response was in no way directed at an individual, rather it was a response and explanation for what was going on. In retrospect, my response should have been "nope". I've stated multiple times in multiple places that there wasn't any ill will felt on my end.

I'm not sure what else to say though in response to the accusation that "So he made the decision (as he claims) to cost Amazon potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars because of a few whiners? I'm not buying that, or the statment that they were scrubbed for market research."

I will tell you that the net of this conversation is that I will be much more careful in my responses since they are not taken at face value, something which I regret given the massive amount of time I spend here.

Again, no malice, but if I can't be honest with you guys without illiciting this kind of negative reaction I just won't be.

I'd like to end with an ask for resolution on your end. How can I help you feel less bad about this situation?

Cheers,
Tony

Quick question

Wife got me Dark Souls PS3 for Christmas... any reason to purchase it on PC during this sale? Kinda curious if modding and such make it worth the $15 investment.
