Do you guys buy these bundles to use, or keep aside as tradebait?. Just curious.. im not finding anything i want to buy with coupons etc......anything worth buying to trade?.;)


I buy the packs to get something specific i want and either trade or give the rest to friends.

I tend to take what I want and Steamgift off the remainders. I figure there's little sense in me trying to re-sell extra keys around here when everyone and their dog bought the same bundle and those who didn't often don't want to pay more than a buck or two for a key ("You only paid $10!").

For the hassle, I'll call the buck a loss and gift it away instead.

The side effect of this is that I'm unlikely to buy bundles these days where I own more than one or two titles since I'm essentially paying the bundle price for a single game.

Have you checked the trading forum? I purchased CK2 from a CAG there for $5 a few months ago. Not sure how often it occurs, but ISTR that at that time there were at least a couple of keys being sold around that price range.


Maybe I will eventually, but last I checked the lowest was $6. Also, I have Amazon GC to spend.

I buy them because there's something in the bundle that I really want, and the price is at a point where I would have payed that amount for the game I wanted alone. I usually just store the keys I don't want until I can figure out what to do with them. Usually just give them away. Generally speaking, it's a bad idea to buy them for the sole purpose of trading/selling them later.

I only buy games/bundles of games I plan to play. I don't do the "trade" thing; I don't like the thought of putting my account in jeopardy if it turns out the "key" has issues.

I sell games out of bundles if I already have them or don't want them.

Why pay for a $5 bundle with five games and only two games that you want or don't have when you could possibly sell the other three games on and could have basically gotten the bundle for $2?

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

There is also the fact that a lot of people here buy the packs to flip later so you're ultimately going to be competing against a decent amount of other people on the trade thread so you're better off having multiple places to peddle 'dem keys. There are people with twenty or so keys for trade/sale that I doubt they'll ever ship off.


Yeah, I don't pick up anything with the thought of selling it, but I have tried to set up sales and splits for bundles I'm looking at but have duplicates of. Having a pre-set sale means I'm not spending a while trying to get rid of extras. Of course, I still end up with extras. It's kind of hard not to.

Yep, there are definitely "premium" content DLCs appearing on your list: The Darkspawn Chronicles, The Golems of Amgarrak, Return to Ostagar, Leliana's Song, The Stone Prisoner, Warden's Keep, Witch Hunt


Thanks guys. I'll have to finish up some games and get to installing Dragon Age sometime soon to confirm!

Sweet deal on YDKJ. Weird thing is it didn't show up in my Steam library until I went to the YDKJ store page and clicked play now. Then it appeared. Hmmm..

I've noticed selling and trading games you don't want or is a duplicate is extremely hard here since the majority of people already bought the bundle or set so most people are selling (usually the same items). Everyone seems to also want the same items that are not usually in a bundle so supply is limited. I wouldn't recommend buying stuff just to trade or sell here. One reason I skipped the DoW pack since it's a pain to get rid of.

I also don't think a majority of people read the buy/trade threads here since I've seen a lot of games/bundles for lower than the store bought price. I didn't used to read it neither, but my backlog just seems to keep getting bigger and bigger and I should probably just dump stuff at cost or at a loss. Some of it is the risk of getting bad keys too I guess.

What I have seen is pricing tends to be lower a lot of times though which is nice.

Tony, can you please try to put the C&C Collection deal back up? I was a hopeful vocal supporter of that deal, and you specifically said it wasn't going to happen, apparently it did though, and I imagine I am not the only one who went by the info from the OP and missed out. Also, another YDKJ sale would be fantastic as well.

But I think there is too much EA stuff, and many of it is not appealing to me, but I think it may be to others then.

When the 2K stuff was on sale I wanted a Mafia II sale.
No Mafia II Sale on december / january makes me a sad panda.
I basically got most of the 2K stuff this last holiday sale, but Mafia is missing.

Can I still have hope? I saw some other people in the old thread that also wanted it.

I don't think Tony planned to have that go on sale. Amazon is a big company and probably someone else put it on match since they probably had thousands of people requesting it with the "Show me a lower price link".

I think this one is a classic case of something that should be matched since this is where the coupon makes a lot of sense. I don't know the reason, but EA and Amazon probably didn't feel the $$ was worth it to sell it at the 11.99 price point so didn't want to match the price. Unlike a free game, 11.99 sounds pretty good to me and just a bit more than 75% off so it's not an insane price.

This wouldn't benefit me at all since I skipped it and probably not really interested at any price, but doubt it'll come back and someone probably got in trouble. ;)
