72 hour sale, $25 gift card with all games bought.  Can order multiple games in a single order, should see a $25 gift card promo underneath each one.  Free shipping.

 

Couple caveats:

 

- gift card is usable at dell only

- online you can only apply one gift card to a new order.  If you call in you can use up to 3.

- it takes 10-20 days for them to email you the gift card after the item ships.

- the gift cards expire 90 days after issue

- their prices are usually meh

- they are terrible at shipping pre-orders, you will get them usually a WEEK after release date

 

Here is the link to see all their games, its not just the ones list on the lander page above

http://accessories.u...s=19&l=en&s=dhs

 

their website is pretty terrible but its Grandpa Dell.  lol at them taking bitcoin though...

 

I think some of the 3DS, 360, and ps3 games are pretty good deals especially the ones $20-30 like Dishonored GOTY, Mario Kart 7 3DS, most of the Wii U games, etc.

Lolwat. I put a $19 game in my cart and it qualified for $25 gift card .... so potentially free game? (Assuming you shop at dell...)

Edit: dang, ninja-ed by 2 minutes...

not exactly free, you put down that $7 for something that you never really intended to buy, and when you do redeem that $25 gc you will likely be paying more.  If you use it on something you really want and its not a lot cheaper elsewhere it can be a good deal, but if the Dell price is a lot higher than amazon etc then you may have fallen into Dell's trap!

 

gift cards are a retailers wet dream since so many go unredeemed

Weird I ordered Mario Kart 8 through them because of the same deal and I got it on release day.

 

Though I wish I waited on using it on Mario Golf if I could have gotten another 25 card but such is life

I preordered it at that price when they were offering a $25 e-GC a month or two ago, and I contacted a Dell CS rep yesterday about refunding the $10+tax difference since every other retailer is selling the game for $49.99 MSRP. Since the game had shipped, he said he'd process the refund.

I've added a few games to my cart to see if they qualify.  Some did, some didn't.  You'll have a message under the game about the $25 gift card if it is eligible.  Might be able to argue with CS since it says "all games".

...If there was a single game I wanted, this would be tempting.  As it stands, I'm looking at paying $20 for Minecraft on a system that I don't own it on yet just to get a $25 GC for a site I can't mind another game on it I want.  Dell is out a huge discount, I buy games on deal I don't want/need.

My kids like Minecraft, it turns out. We rented it from RedBox for a day and they are asking to get it again.  As for the $25 gift card, I would probably end up using it to buy Microsoft account funds. Considering it.

Picked up Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. 

 

ShopDiscover gives back 10% at Dell, so that kinda covers the tax. 

 

I was pondering MK8 for the free download game but I have little interest in MK8 or any of the free games they're offering (besides WW, which I already have).

crazy, MK8 is easily one of the most fun games I have played in the past 5 years and I've played almost everything.   I love online racing though makes me feel like a kid

Lack of selection does restrict the deal quite a bit. I'll give you that - but I would hardly call it a "trap". It's legit deal, just depends on if you can find the games you want, and then can use the GC on.

 

No true CAG will let a GC go "unredeemed".  :shame:

I figure, if I can't find anything to spend the $25 on, I'll just get some Nintendo/Sony/MS credit.

I bought six on one order.  I sure hope that wasn't stupid.  My order indicated a GC under each item, so I assumed it would be fine.

Nintendo

If you have a Discover card, use their shopping website to gain 10% bonus cash back. Other cash back sites offer 4%.

I hate when people use that line of logic. Getting a gift card with something doesn't negate or lower the price you're paying for the original purchase. In reality, it's more like [insert amount of money] for your original purchase plus an additional amount of money for a discounted item that you had to purchase to justify your first purchase. 
 

"PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures, for Nintendo 3DS, $19.99 + $25 promo gift card = ($5 net gain)"

 
I love the "net gain" part. At best you can get a decent B1G1 price for two 3DS games, should they stay in stock, and also only if the prices don't change 10 to 20 days down the line. There's no "net gain."
 
I really shouldn't care though...  :wall:

 

By the way, does anyone know if Dell.com price matches?
