I didn't get the THQ pack though. Haven't bought any games from Amazon for a few weeks now. I do sometimes grab the Free App of the Day and my wife sometimes gets credit for doing that so I assumed that's it.

But I'm also happy to not overthink it and just enjoy my 73% savings :lol:


Hmmm, interesting.

Is there a way to check what your promo credit is for? I have $24 in credit, but every time I try to check out with a game, it doesn't apply any of the credit. I can only assume that this is because that credit is only valid on certain items, but I'll be damned if I know what games they might be.



That sounds like War of Roses credit. $6 off the individual game. $18 off the 4 pack. Try adding those to your cart.

Bingo. That was it. Thanks Fox.

EDIT: Still...I really wish there was an easy way to check if a promo credit is only valid on certain items, and to be able to see what those items might be. I'm sure they sent me email about this, but one can't always keep track of these things.

@Tony
Are guys going to PM Spec Ops: The Line?

Or you going to have a BETTER deal than GameFly soon enough?
It's right now on GameFly $5.99 w/ coupon 2GFT82012; $7.49 w/out coupon...

@Tony
Everyone seems to say that you send out steam keys for preorders when they become available to you. Any word on when you'll be getting XCOM keys to send out?

I normally don't care much about the whole preloading thing, but that game is enormous!

Don't read too much into his lack of responses. I think he's vacationing again. This is probably a direct result of having a job in the Top 10 in the history of the world. He's a bum ( ;) ) who likes to play hooky, take time off and lay around, daydreaming about "The Old Days" when he didn't feel compelled to check a deals forum dedicated to games full of (awesomely) insane people just to guarantee wild PM's and feral hamsters are running around in flaming loops.

Alas, such a world does not exist. Not for him! So he'll check back eventually.

For what it's worth, I don't see a price match on The Darkness 2 or Spec Ops: The Line either. Tony's gone and the asylum's power just failed. It's every nutcase for himself. Dibs on the extra medicated JELLO cups! :-P

Just went ahead and picked up Spec-Ops at gamefly for 5.99 w/coupon. Cheapest I've seen it, didn't even have to download their client, just got the steam key and activated it. How much was that OCTOFUN1 coupon taking off at amazon? 20 or 25 percent?

25%
Would have been $5.63; to me pretty much the same price.

A very cool Skyrim Mod:

25%

So if they do get around to price matching Spec Ops, and the coupon is still valid at that time, it would be $5.62. Cheaper than Gamefly, but nothing to loose any sleep over if you went ahead and bought from Gamefly.

EDIT: Ninja'd lol

Im sorry if this was mentioned already...It could be a coincidence but I ordered the $10 EA 5 pack bundle. Heck of a deal. Then in my e-mail was a coupon for 50% off any game in orgin. I might be shopping for another game!

+1 here. Though Tony did respond to my earlier mail ("he'll look into it") of a possible 4.99 Halloween sale for Darkness II.

Still i might bite earlier at $5.62

Origin chat with customer support. I gave them my key and they added it manually.

Thanks. I did that with Crysis + Crysis Warhead, but it took them a while. I was hoping that there was a quicker option.

For those wondering how/why people are selling XCOM so cheap, it's ~$19 from the Steam store in Russia and the game has no region restrictions. Users there buy it from Steam and resell it for $28-30 to make a quick profit.


Could JakeNome possibly be doing that? Jw.

Wow didn't know about that Batman Arkham City Securom stuff. I got it from GetGamesGo non-Steam but dang.

Still nothing I can see using the 25% coupon for but if anyone only wants Arkham City in the Batman pack let me know, as I'm only looking for Arkham Asylum.

Yeah and now that amazon charges tax in PA I think my savings with amazon would have been even less than that. No tax with gamely

Yeah, I cheated on Tony. I gave Amazon a day to match, but when the 20% off code came up and I saw two relatively new games for under $6 a piece with Steam keys, I bit.

I did. The Darkness 2 and Spec Ops for less than $12 is pretty hot. Plus, I just found out with that purchase that Gamefly doesn't charge tax (unlike Origin)! If the keys had not been Steam (or Origin), I probably wouldn't have done it, but especially with Steam, I feel Steam is Steam is Steam.

If Tony puts a $5 deal on either of these games, I won't sweat the ~$1 I paid extra for either, but I'll be glad for others who get those deals. This is what I was talking about the other day when I said that I have a threshold where I judge the deal great enough that I won't be upset when a better deal shows up tomorrow, next month, or six months from now.

Because there's little chance of the deal being more than a few dollars since I only paid $6. But hey, Tony, feel free to prove me wrong! ;)

Then, make sure you play Spec Ops: The Line NOW. :P That way, your ONE whole dollar worth b/c you didn't have to wait to play; and b/c you didn't back-log that from GameFly and then Tony came up w/ an even better deal while your game is STILL untouched!

Tony has A LOT of GREAT deals here on a REGULAR basis that are VERY often trend-setting and others copy or try to better, I might add - so he's expected to miss or not PM some the other digital services got going on. He ain't going to win them all - especially since he seems to win MOST of them. :P

EDIT:
I'm also on the fence now here w/ Spec Ops: The Line - do I buy from GameFly now; or wait for Amazon DVG to PM; or Amazon DVG to tell us they got a better deal coming soon?
Thankfully, this is a GameFly weekend deal, so I can wait a little bit...
Thankfully, I'm still working on and playing Diablo 3 here, so I can wait a little bit...

$29.99 now, I guess they lowered the retail price because it was $49.99

it's not a race, some people are discouraged by taxes when shopping and there's nothing to be done about it if the right competition can cause them to take their business elsewhere

california just started taxing amazon purchases and i've been extremely reluctant to purchase anything from there now due to that reason. i'll either get over it in time or i'll find an alternative i like

Huge thanks on matching Darksiders II. Had some gift credit I needed to burn and had $5 promo credit still in my account for some reason. $12 for Darksiders, how could I turn that down?

Don't know if this was answered yet but did Tony end up getting that Borderlands tattoo?

Yes, there's a picture in one of the first few pages of this thread (I think around 5 or 6).
