I logged onto Gamefly today and noticed $10 Gamefly dollars in my account

Black Friday Sale 2008 $10 Coupon
Expires 12/1/2008

Not bad for people that don't mind used stuff (I am one of the fortunate that have never had a problem with buying 2nd hand from GF)

I have only been a member for 3 months so if you have been with them longer you might get more $$? Post and let us know!

Yep, I took advantage of this last year. Thanks for pointing out that it's up. I haven't been on my GF account lately. Now, to find a cheap game to pick up.

EDIT: Boooooooooooooo. It says the coupon is only valid on orders of $30 or more. There aren't even many games on GF that go for that much...let alone anything actually worth it. Maybe, I'll get lucky, and they will ship me Fallout 3 before the end of the month, but I doubt it.

Thanks for the heads up.

Looks like everything was raised $3-4 recently. I was looking at Lost Oddysee for $30.99, but it was $27 last week..

Edit: I guess you WANT the games to be more than $30, I forgot there really is no shopping cart system there.

Its in every GF used thread, maybe I can head it off. Yes you may get a perfect copy with no scratches. You might not. They guarantee it will work. If it doesn't work and they have another available they will send you another. DS games are nice to buy used.

SUCKS that it has to be a $30 order.

Ok, so how do I combine a "keep it now" order with another order to pad my account enough to get up to the silly $30 minimum? It doesn't really put it in a cart.

Hmm. I might keep my copy of Gears of War 2 then.

Thanks for the heads up!

Fact: Did you know Ninja Gaiden was for Xbox 1? A lot of gamers do not know. Don't trust me? Go to stores like Target and Wal-mart and ask.

Wish they hadn't raised the prices of games but an extra $10 is still good.

well none of the games I have out had their prices raised (Saints Row 2 has actually dropped some in price)

I think I'll use it on Valkyria Chronicles and get the game for only $35 :)

FAIL. They need to be like Netflix and get out of the sell used business, then.

Thank you for posting this! I had no idea I had an extra 10 dollars on my account and I have been really thinking of keeping Last Remnant. With that 10 dollars and the other 5 I had on there it comes out to a cheap 30 bucks.

Nice. I just passed my first marker as a subscriber and got $5 in credit - and now it's $15 with the BF deal. Getting Left 4 Dead for $35 looks like a great choice for me, too.

Nice deal. Had to completely redo my Q list though. Put out all the game I want to rent and inserted all the game I want to buy (not a big list) in hope one gets shipped to me and I can use this. Hoping for Chrono Trigger w/$10 coupon at $22 shipped.

Nice, thanks a ton. I would have missed this completely.

And I've never had any problems with Gamefly purchases. All work perfectly.

EDIT: You're right, some of the game prices HAVE gone up over the last couple days. Bourne Conspiracy was a keep-it-now option for $27ish when I rented it recently, now it is 30.99, same with Infinite Undiscovery. Still may use this coupon on a keep-it option with Tales or Infinite, I don't know.

just to clarify...can you stack the coupons you have toward a purchase? for instance, i have a $5 coupon for passing the 3 month mark and the $10 BF coupon. can i use them on one purchase?

I stacked two $5 coupons before. This was done the day the first $5 was set to expire, and was also the same day they issued me the new 3-month one. So I wouldn't see why not!

You may have to hit KEEP IT NOW before you get it though (depends where you are)

Good chance they will not ship out TRIGGER till Friday since it shows a Thusday release

coupon expires MONDAY


i know if they shipped me Trigger on friday i would not get it till TUESDAY or WEDS
WOOOO I STINK

Crap. After reading the e-mail I got, it's only for games $30 and up. There is hardly anything over $30 worth getting. Fallout 3 is on it's way for me, maybe I'll end up keeping it.

If I had a PS3, I'd be all over Ratchet and Clank though.

I think Gamefly for PS3 is a much better experience, since Blu-Ray is hard to scratch and it seems easier to get games as soon as they're released. I used my coupon for a $40 "Keep It" on Mirror's Edge.
