No, you only get one code per publisher, usable on one purchase.

Wasn't there a Max Payne 3 bundle with MP3 and Season Pass available last time around or am I just blind and can't find it?

Also, to anyone being here during the last Holiday sale on Amazon: What's the chance of games getting the same discount during the Editor's Choice that they received during the Holiday sale?

I'm tempted to get MP3 but noticed it's part of the EC selection and I don't want to burn 5 bucks AGAIN for nothing, like I did with the DS2 franchise.

The chances are small, but there. The notable deals with the editors choice last year came from price patching other retailers. So like Steam's winter sale is until Jan 5th. Dailies might be matched by Amazon during that time (but not flashes/votes). You're gambling really. I think Max Payne's already had a daily on Steam so it is unlikely to be the source of a price match unless it is on some retailer's random weekend deal on Jan 24th or whatever.

You may have received five emails regarding the coupons, but unless the system is broken, you only get one to use.

well my friends, you DONT seem to get the $5 discount if you purchase some uber cheap 32 cent dlc(its been 20 minutes, thats long enough :P). well, thats 35cents(after tax) down the drain :/ guess ill just pay the $14 for the darksiders collection; but before i do that i want to see if steam will pull through and have some kind of discount on far cry 3 today(wishful thinking looking at all the winter sales on steam this year)

You won't get THQ/EA/Ubisoft (and 2K?) coupons for purchases made on the 25th.

Max Payne did not have a daily. It is having a flash sale right now.

So I hope this means that I'll get a 2k coupon sometime before tomorrow for the NBA2K12 I got from Amazon in February! Wasn't sure that 2k Games and 2k Sports were actually the same company, or at least would qualify as such for this promo.

$4.99 WTF Bundle tomorrow! :bouncy:

Also, made this account just to thank T-Money and his unnamed dev that worked over Xmas eve just to get all this done. Spent way too much on Amazon Digital, and it'll make Tony happy to note that I've gotten NOTHING from Steam's Winter Sale yet, but have acquired (since Tony likes knowing what we buy):

The Tantalizing THQ Bundle (even if I already had Metro and RF:A)
The Darksiders Bundle (even if I already had DS1), coupon applied
The SR3 Complete Bundle (even if I already had SR vanilla - picked over Steam for the $5 coupon next year)

Considering Scribblenauts.

Again, kudos to Tony for being a great CS rep. :applause:

REALLY don't know what to get with the Ubisoft/EA promo (still no mail with THQ/2K promo)

NEVER played any AC game, besides having the first on Steam since... forever. Thinking about Revelations, but is not Steam and it has some DLC that I don't know how will I redeem later... How is the game? I must play AC1 first? How it is downloaded? Direct from Amazon? No Ubi client?

Hahaha... lots of questions...

Skip AC1 because it might turn you off from the rest of a good series. AC2, AC: Brotherhood, and AC:R are a trilogy for the character Ezio. You should start with 2, which IMO was the best game. If you like it, then you can continue on in the series. If you don't like it, I'd recommend leaving the rest alone.

Can't apply the code to AC2 :(

The difference between the 2K and THQ/EA/Ubisoft coupons is that the 2K coupon is valid from the 26th through the 31st, whereas the THQ/EA/Ubisoft coupons are only valid on the 25th.

It's been stated many times that the 2K promos to be backfilled should be rolling out later today/tonight (possibly into tomorrow?) since the other pubs were a priority. You DO NOT "have to" buy a 2K product today to receive the promo discount.

Hm, but it should be a promotion for any item you bought during 2012, same as for THQ/Ubisoft and EA.

I guess all the other people who didn't buy any 2K game today will still have to wait for their mails.

This probably just means that the email-sending part of the Amazon coupon system hasn't yet caught up with the credit-bestowing part of it. I wouldn't worry, just try to buy a game when you (by the rules posted by Tony) should already have a coupon and it should automagically apply.

Just to note for everyone that hasn't seen it, the $5 2K coupon takes effect on the 26th (Amazon time or PST), is valid until the end of the year and can only be applied to an item that's $9.99 or more.

You may want to check your email and read carefuly if the message mentions the 2K $5 credit or if it's the $5 credit to use next January on selected games (Editor's Choices)
There are several promotional credits being offered by Amazon. Some apply to specific publishers (THQ, EA, Ubisoft, 2K), others are to be used with items/subscriptions of F2P games, and there's the $5 credit to use next January.

Tony mentioned that everyone that bought a 2K game in 2012 from Amazon would get a $5 2K credit to use by 12/26-12/31.

Damn should have went with the desert to sea bundle instead of 2k shooter pack so I could spend the promo on the wtf pack. Ah well, what will you guys be getting with your 2K credit?

Also, I can't decide between Darksiders 2 Franchise or SR3 full package. I already have SR3 from the humble bundle so getting all the DLC for $2.50 seems pretty good,
