Awesome! (Anyone think Wal-Mart will counter and go lower?)

any reason they won't match the price on the email codes?

Because it's supposed to be instant, you sacrifice good pricing on getting your code almost instantly.

yes but it probably costs amazon at least $2 more to send it through old fashioned mail

Maybe they want to see who is using stolen credit cards and ordering the digital version for $8 more than a physical card?

Maybe... Or who just has too much money that needs to be spent.

Way better than the small discount Target has on 1600 points, thanks

Unless I'm wrong this is only $0.96 better than the target deal (not counting tax which you may or may not get charged through Amazon).

You would be correct about it being only $0.96 better, but this way I save gas. Plus, there is no tax on the card through Amazon, so I don't have to worry about target possibly charging me tax on it.

True, I like this deal better. Just don't think it is "way" better. Just better.

Target deal = 15% off
Amazon deal = 16.92% off

So, it's a little bit better, but not enough to stock up on. I'll wait for something that's at least 30% off before I buy again.

Anyone have any extra Dr. Pepper cap codes? The bottles in my area are all NON-PROMO (I'm in a smaller town) Willing to trade 1 Month XBL subscription code for 8 caps

Yeah, I did the difference check myself earlier and I think there was somewhere around a 10 cent difference per 400 points. Myself, I had to run around out in town anyways (plus moving soon so don't really want to order online right now anyways) made Target more appealing to me personally.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

That's what I'm coming up with. You and Shagrath are right on the money.

Amazon
$41.54 = $0.0103 cents / spacebuck
or $4.15 / 400 pts.
========
17% off

Target
$17 = $0.0106 cents / spacebuck
or $4.25 / 400 pts.
========
15% off

Man, I'm still on the fence with this one.
Not exactly an exciting deal by any means, but it's the most we've seen in quite some time. Remember those B1G1 sales Target used to have?

I grabbed a 1600 point card for $17, worth it IMO :)

Wombat said that there are now 500 point cards on the market. Has anyone seen any, or can you only buy them from the Marketplace?

I love it when CAG's delineate the percentage difference of deals - true CAGs.

I haven't seen any, but are you sure you heard him correctly?

How many years have people griped about MS selling points in blocks of 500 on Live so that you'd have leftover points. Now they finally sell in blocks of 400 and then they release a 500 point card?

Actually,Wombat was talking about how in the LIVE marketplace you can now buy the points bundled in packs of 400. Atleast that's what he said on the CAGcast.

That's right. It's 400.

12 months of live is $40 on the live marketplace. Probably comes with strings attached but it's a lot faster than going to the store.

500 pt cards would be weird since most games/dlc cost 400/800/1200. would be odd to sell it in this increment and have an extra 100pt left over.. of course there are dlc bundle packs at a discount and avatar items you can buy in odd increments.

I got 11 days of live left, any good deals out there? or should I just use my credit card and get it off live.
