I've been trying to do this for some video games and I had no luck. I tried putting a dvd in there and applying the code and only the DVD went down in price. I guess it doesn't work for video games...

Too bad its PV and not PV and Used since some games are not stocked in both conditions.

It's for used and pv. Why would you think otherwise?

Because the OP only mentions previously played games. If its both, than yay! Hastings is weird sometime. Like not discounting certain box sets, blu-ray, etc.

As far as quality goes, do you suppose the best bet would be used or previously viewed?

To be fair, his title says used. Every time they've had a discount code it's included both.

Box sets are a new addition as far as I know. They were never included until the past HASTINGS code. I just bought that Jodorowsky set for $14 shipped.

update: Well, the banner on the site does say previously viewed, so maybe used games aren't included. Strange. And it is only 20%, not 30. Regardless, the code is still not working and it's past midnight.

If it's 30% I will most likely get some stuff but 20% is kinda meg with the shipping charges now.

Just got some box set tv dvds at 30% off. Pretty happy with it, though the shipping costs add up because they ship each item individually.

It has to be the specially marked "previously viewed" games, otherwise known as RENTALS.

Edit: Still doesn't seem to be working right now....
I Find Giants.
I Hunt Giants.
I Kill Giants.

It seems to be working for some games and others not. I had 8 games in my cart that were all used, it only took 30% off of one of them. Not quite sure why.

Edit: Make sure that the games are previously viewed and not marked as used.

Just as I suspected. Only works on PV games, not used.

So previously viewed = rental? I tried looking on their site for a confirmation of that but couldn't find it. The discount isn't that stellar either, basically negates their shipping. Sucks that it is also hit or miss for manual and case, maybe I'll just skip this one.

Yeah I was annoyed enough by the lack of definition between "previously viewed" and "used" on their site that I won't be completing my order for what I had in the cart. Would have been worth it if it was applied to used games as well. Lame...

Yeah think I'll pass on this, considering it's only valid on Previously Viewed copies. No guarantee of manual, case condition etc.... and a lot of the better games are not available PV. That per item shipping really bites.

Off hand - I had 2 DVD sets in my cart last night. Went to bed, and checked the cart this morning - the total had jumped up $3 overnight! Not too fond of that little practice...

Same here! My items jumped about 3 dollars each as well! Another strike against this site. Won't go back any time soon.

Sorry gents, this ended up being a bust of a deal! Updated the topic to be more true to what this really is.

I was able to get Lego Indiana Jones 2 for the XBox 360 for $20.49. Definitely the cheapest I have seen for the XBox version.

I'm surprised they've made it so limited this time around. Only on PV titles, and only a select few of them. I was hoping to get InFamous but it doesn't qualify.

Incidentally - this is 20% off available games and 30% off books/cds/dvds. Thread title should probably be updated.

Still some good deals though, picking up Darksiders and White Knight Chronicles for $46 shipped is okay in my book.

I think I might return my order how long will it take for the money to get back in my account after I ship it back?

Mind telling which box sets you got? It's hard to find which items are used. I picked up Angel 1-5 boxset for $40 bucks!

Tempting, but I'm too leary of buying an ex-rental. It may look like dog crap.

the person that said that this is a strike against their site, and he doesn't plan on using it anytime because the price of their total went up $3 yet gamestop does this all the time. Heck Sacred 2 went from $19.99 used and what is it now like $32.99 or something like that which is even more than it costs new plus their onlinesavings.com scandal they have. No-matter what store you go to whether it be a game store like gamestop or a retail clothing store like Kohls, when you have a 30% off or a 20% off a buy 2 get 1 free, they raise the prices so your not really getting that much of a deal. Yes you can find really good deals, and these are usually the ones they advertise to get you in the store.
