Guessing most people are going to say Overstock's (I think it was them) $10 off coupon fiasco. But since I didn't get in on that, I'm going to say Play-Asia's summer sale. Definitely limited in appeal, but for importers, it was a godsend.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Google Checkout $20 off $50.

Being right during the holidays, this probably saved me at least $100 in one month.

I put this in the online retailer thread, but it fits better here. The Amazon/TRU old-style Nintendo DS Nintendogs Best Friends and Animal Crossing bundles (where you could add a free $20 toy to the shipment as well). I was able to get a second DS for my kids (as well as a nice Magnetix set) to use for about $50 out of that (after selling the Nintendogs game on ebay ;)).

Then there was that Overstock thing where I got a couple games for like $2 each. Yeah, that was pretty good - but since that was a mistake/glitch I'm not sure if it really should count. It was more than $10, though, wasn't it? I'm thinking it was $20, since I got God Of War for about $2 out of it ($20 + shipping - $20).

Then again, Google Checkout combined with the Toys R Us $25 deal on Final Fantasy XII was pretty nice too ;).

Seconded for buy.com's 20 off 50/10 off 30 GCO promotion. Absolutely no contest. I spent a ridiculous amount of money on useless crap through November and December.

The Circuit City early summer clearance. $1.96 F-zero GC and #3.96 PoP: 2 XB ftw?

And another vote for Google Checkout $20 off $50.

Overstock's $20 coupon glitch if that counts. If not... I don't think I partook in any other deals.

Well definately Amazon's black friday sale and more importantly the Core Xbox 360's for 100 dollars if you could get one.

A close second is google checkout $10 off $10 items was good one.

EBGames.com's coupon stacking adventure didn't end till mid-06 right? Like March or something?

I'll say that. CAG15(6)+Edge Card+SAVER. :) I miss the morning updates and saving 25% on every thing used I ever bought. :(

$10 off any purchase gamestop online. It was with the xbox live diamon card yet some cags just posted their livetags and it worked for all of us. Got 17 games for $33 from that.

I think Google Checkout is the best choice... you could save $10 off $30 at tons of stores and $20 off of $50 from Buy.com.

I picked up tons of stuff but didn't get to make any good game purchases since all the games I wanted were sold out.

the $100 core was great, but that was one of the most poorly designed sales ever.
