Not to mention from multiple places one could have had this new on release day for $30. I've been slow to abandon Amazon as many other CAGs have but this credit I have is weighing on me more and more every day. It's to the point I'm going to start preordering games at full price just to get rid of it.


The credit is useable on other non game stuff right? Buy something worthwhile you can use instead?

Another Amazon Aluminum Box. Dead Island vanilla for $15? Fuck you too, Amazon.

Funny going on the Amazon forums and seeing a few people pumped about this sale. One guy was ecstatic to get Skyrim for $35.

When was the last time new copies of it on CONSOLE were that cheap? It hit $40 a few times in the late Spring then shot back up to $60 after Dawnguard and have held there.

I am stuck with 1400 BB credit, can't find a kindle GC for the life of me


I would happily take some of that off your hands so you won't be stuck.

it was $35 back in June, I remember cause this was when I traded my vanilla edition to BB for $34 as part of my upgrade to the CE.

It appears so much discounting is catching up to Amazon, with competitors now price matching it's even worse. The tax situation plays a smaller role, but a role nonetheless. Add in selling kindles for almost a loss every time and Wal-Mart flat out no longer selling kindles..it's going to be a tough 2013 for Amazon. I'm intrigued to see how they act this BF.


The tax thing is a big issue. It's 8.75% in New York, which has really turned me into a NewEgg fan since they still don't charge sales tax to NYC. It's definitely a consideration, especially if egg-saver shipping is available.

On-topic, the vanilla Dead Island at $14.99 was still a bit too rich for me. I was hoping to get the GOTY for that price, but meh.

Skyrim seems a bit high @ $35, maybe because it includes the disc? Full game download cards are going for $15-20 on eBay. Having the disc would allow me to resell when I'm done with it but I think I'm just going to grab a card off eBay and call it a day.

Wow...those of you complaining about having amazon credit and those abandoning amazon because of deals are extremely short-sighted. Someone brought up the perfectly valid point that you could use your amazon credit on ANYTHING which makes it as good as cash since you could do some of your groceries if you wanted to...

However, if we're talking specifically the gaming front...We're <= 1 year on next gen consoles. All that credit you saved up will be perfect for scoring you a next gen system w/ little to no cost out of pocket....of course, after prices go down a little, we're cheap asses after all.

Just getting them to price match is like pulling teeth now. I only bought three textbooks from them this fall, I used to buy 90% of my books and games from them. Pretty sad when the college bookstore is a better deal.

I believe strongly in getting the best value for my money as opposed to buying something more expensive just because I have credit. Then you're really not saving anything. I'm still left with $57 credit after buying MSP and razor blades. I used to regard credit as good as cash too, but not anymore.

As for next-gen systems...if the rumors are true I'm not buying them. I'm pretty satisfied with the current-gen lineup and got plenty of games I still need to check out anyway.
