It sucks when the Greatest Hits version has the dlc on disc. That is typically the only exception I make for them.

Us cali-folks already pay sales tax on everything Amazon. There are still loopholes around it though. For example you are charged sales tax after giftcard/promo code discounts. So I buy everything with Amazon gift cards now.

Yea, that works with gamestop and a lot of other places too. The subtotal is what they use to calculate taxes I guess, so after coupons and other discounts what ever remains gets taxed. Also I believe most types of giftcards aren't taxed because the vendor you buy them for is where the tax occurs, unless they provide a service like a visa prepaid or something.

Have you ever brought a girl back to your place only to be embarrassed by your greatest hits and platinum hits versions if videogames on the shelves?

Totally cock blocked by box art

I think its because gamestop treats it as store credit. Same way you dont get charged tax on reward zone certificates but you do get charged tax on any amount paid with a best buy gift card. Same goes with amazon. Even if you pay an item in full with a gift card, amazon is still going to charge you tax on the full price.

It's understandable. Gift cards pay for the item. The promotion only removes part of the cost; it does not pay for part of the item.

I got excited over nothing when I read that the gift card doesn't get taxed.

May DealSeeker continue to guide us through dark voids, lead us not into tempting terrible deals, and deliver us from EA.

My guess is someone submitted it as "acceptable" and Amazon wasn't going to bump it up to "like new." However, if it was submitted as "like new," they'd certainly bump it down a grade if it warranted it.

This is just conjecture, mind you.

Thanks for the MGS HD collection I just grabbed, been holding off on this since I have all the originals but couldn't pass up on like new condition, hopefully it is like new.

The one time I'm here when a 32gb vita card is posted and it costs $20 more than I want to pay :cry:

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who behaves the same way:

*notices the AWD thread was updated*
*notices that DealSeeker2U posted most recently*
*freaks out in anticipation while clicking and waiting to see the new post of deals*

By the way if any of you were on the fence about Tomb Raider, buy it. I finished it in about 12 hours with a 70% overall completion rate.

It's absolutely awesome.

They look at the back on the tag and if it doesn't give a condition they'll use it to fulfill any order.

Fortunately Amazon is pretty reasonable with this, and they will bump things up.

I once submitted an old DVD in quite good shape, but since it was so old I couldn't select a condition better than "good" (the others were grayed out).

Once Amazon received it, they sent me an email that they had bumped it up to Very Good or Like New and increased the credit.
