This promo hasn't started yet. I just got done chatting with amazon CS and they said it doesn't apply to past purchases and it doesn't look like promo credit will stack either.

I got one also - can't see using it on a limited selection of games I probably already have ;).

Apparently, since the credits can't be redeemed until Saturday 1/4, they haven't populated the page yet with the choices - even though they already provided a link to the page in the email.

 

In other words, all of Amazon's UX people are busy working on that drone delivery.

How is this related to the Amazon DVG thread? I haven't bought a game digitally from Amazon in months and I got one.

The order that triggered it for me was a PS+ 12-month code at the end of November.

The EC coupons are in direct relation with any purchases from the digital store on Amazon (from early Nov? to 12/31), and thus any purchased codes (PC, Xbox, PS3, Live, PS+, etc) I believe would entitle an account to a $5 dollar coupon off any Editor's Choice games come 1/4.

 

This is related to the DVG thread because the selection and discussion is largely focused on PC games (or has been in years past).

 

Hopefully I made this post clear... I'm a little tired.

Got one too. Will probably apply it to MS credit to get some much needed DLC.

Sweet, got two of them for buying Aliens: CM for $1.99 and another for TWD: 400 days for $1.49. 

 

Here's hoping the selection and prices are reasonable to warrant their use, especially since they won't stack for a single purchase.

Granted - but my point is that it can have its own thread because it can be triggered by something not related to the Amazon DVG PC deals. I wouldn't have see this discussion if it took place solely in that thread since the deals there don't interest me. And yet I got the coupon - so I'll be waiting to see what they come up with. Hopefully it isn't all PC downloads - but I'm guessing that it may very well be. If they throw in some PSN codes, though, that would be nice.

Gotcha. My apologies, I didn't even think about this thread's existence when I made my post, I was just trying to explain the relationship (and not so much as saying it didn't belong). I agree though, a lot of people who don't follow that smorgasbord of a thread (said with love) won't have any clue what's going on, so I'm all for this thread.

 

As for the non PC aspect, I can't remember last year so well this morning... and it was only a few days ago, so I'm off to a bad start. Though it would be nice and helpful for many if consoles were included in some capacity. I don't really see why they couldn't what with Amazon's Digital Playstation store and such, but I guess we'll see.

Got 4 of these. I know Wario said they won't stack but hopefully they will at least work with Xbox Live Cards or PSN Cards with Digital Delivery.

 

If I can get 4 $5.00 Xbox Gift cards for free that would be pretty nice. :D

That's actually an interesting aspect to it this year.  Last year Amazon hadn't started selling PSN and XBL stuff through the DVG Department yet.  That happened some time this year.  Given that those purchases count towards the credit, hopefully they plan to add some stuff for those systems into the mix.  So far the prelim list has been all PC games, but it changes throughout the month.

 

I wouldn't expect any free PSN or XBL credit or for those cards/codes to even be included on the list, but hopefully some games for those systems.

I got the e-mail this morning, but it is hard to envision using it, when I have gamers club unlocked.  I figure anything I could buy on amazon, even with the coupon, would be cheaper at BB with 20% off.

I received a different $5 promo credit when I purchased BF4 digitally on Black Friday. Would be nice if that one stacked with this promo credit.

There are people that have 10+ coupons; they were sent to anyone who made digital game purchases of ANY amount.

 

So you could have purchased 10 $1 games/DLC and received $50 in coupons.

 

Do you really think Amazon should allow them to stack, so you could end up getting a $50 game for $10?   Multiply that times the actual number of coupons - I know some people have many more than 10.

Uh yes, that's pretty much Amazon's fault for designing the promo poorly then, they probably shouldn't be giving $5 credits if you aren't even spending $5. Also the credit applies to a very limited selection of digital only titles, most of which people probably already own. I could see your argument if it was $5 towards anything but it's very limited what you can even use it on in the first place. I see a lot of these credits not even being used...

Got one for buying a $5 Xbox gift card.  That's probably all I'd buy with this credit, otherwise it'll likely go to waste.

It is funny how people complain about deals.  I got my $5 codes from their already crazily discounted digital sales, so this is just icing on the cake.  I am surprised people comparing this deal to BB unlocked.  Unlocked requires a subscription fee so it is apple and oranges.
