There was a lightening deal on the controller for $29.99 yesterday.


There was one today too but the waiting list kept me going up and down on it so I missed out. F*** amazon

I almost feel like 90% of those here on CAG who managed to get the Kinect bundle in their cart let it go to those on the waitlist (I'm one of them).

And to think after all that bitching to Amazon CS about it...


I bought one for a friend people are just multi tab cheating to beat the rest of you. Then all those people letting the system timeout cause they do not want it. Nice way to waste 15 mins of a hold. This is a joke and amazon will not do anything do not try they have to spend money to change the code in the program to stop people from doing that. GL but no goldeneye lowered price and other 2 games not on list. Will just stop wasting my time and buy full price later. I got the money why not help the companies that make the good games i guess.

Coming in to today the only games I wanted were Rayman Origins and Uncharted 3, with an outside interest in Assassin's Creed Revelations (given that I finally got around to finishing Brotherhood a few weeks ago).

Got Rayman because they overpriced it and no one else wants to pay $40 for a platformer, but no dice on U3 and unlucky with the waitlist for AC:R. Kind of wanted to get Once Upon a Monster for Kinect too, because I feel compelled to buy everything Tim Shafer makes ... but missed that waitlist as well, wasn't expecting it to go up so early yesterday.

Oh well, there's always Cyber Monday. Amazon's been pretty meh so far this year, like they did the bare minimum to match retail stores and didn't even bother with deals on Uncharted 3 or Skrim.

Got my $200 Kinect Bundle, it was $180 (170 + 10 tax)after the credit they had given me 15 minutes earlier for bitching lol....

Minus the $50 credit which might as well be cash in the long run on Amazon makes it $130. Trade in my old spare 360 in the basement for $95 at Gamestop. Sell the Kinect and M$ Wifi adapter on Ebay. Probably another $100 in my pocket for those two after fees. So $130 into $195 and upgraded to a brand new 360.

Oh yea and so i'm really hated..... They gave me $50 credit after first 360 deal flopped at noon which I already spent this afternoon. Now back to Skyrim. :D


i hate you missed out on every deal i tried to get

there i made you happy

Just out of curiosity, what were the video deals this morning?

Never mind. I forgot about the expired selection.

Does not look like I really missed anything.

If you want the PS3 version of Dirt 3 it is currently $14.99 at BestBuy.com
360 version is sold out.


I would but I still don't own a PS3, and if I did I would still get it for the xbox 360.

I had to let my 4gb bundle go. Since I already processed an order around 9am when the deal was supposed to go live, it wouldn't let me finish the check out process just now. It said only 1 bundle per customer. I didn't want to cancel my previous order because it already shows it as pending on my credit card, and I wasnt sure if I could get an over the limit fee even though they were just "pending" transactions.

Meh, oh well. Took screenshots showing I did win the lightning deal, I hope Amazon honors the promo, and if not, live and learn! (have a better credit card limit ;D )

Meh, had the Kinect with $50 credit in my cart but won't let me go through with it since I ordered one earlier for the $199. CS told me to just refuse shipment for it and try again later today when the do they same lightning deal again. WTF?!


Same thing happened to me. Rep said I could place an order later at $299 and they would honor the $199 + $50 promotion.

I set mine free. But honestly I was super tempted to just get another one for no reason. Black Friday is a bust for me aside from $15 dirt3 at bestbuy.com.

The funny thing is, I hate FPS's, but I ended up picking up Battlefield 3 and Resistance 3 as part of my BF loot. Damn you, Black Friday for tempting me so!

I'm SO GLAD I looked ahead to the next hour, saw I didn't want the games, and left the house five minutes before they decided to add the 360 into the mix. >:|

Fuck!

Amazon cs already helped me with my 360, but for the fun of it I added it to my cart. I let it go, though.
My delivery estimate is nov 30th. How about you?

You won't regret both. Well resistance 3 more, as that has a thrilling story. BF3 has a great multiplayer, but it depends on the likes of you.

I don't know if anyone is having this problem- but I had google chrome open with one of my amazon accounts, and firefox with another account (in hopes of snagging the xbox deal) and even though I clicked to add the deal to cart first on my google chrome, it gave me the orange ring and made me wait until all were sold out and put me on the wait list- My firefox however instantly added the deal to my cart and had no problems. So, if you're on chrome and having that problem I'd maybe try out firefox and see if it works out.
