I know this is off-topic, but I've been looking into subscribing to @Gamer, but have heard that sometimes it can take over 2 months to get your first issue, sometimes they'll skip a month, etc. Can anyone confirm or deny any of this?


It's YMMV really. I never had that problem when I initially signed up.

You can usually get your first mag in store. After that though it's up to when they send off your application and stuff. I've heard most stores wait until they can batch several applications and send them all in together. Which means it could be a couple weeks before @gamer even knows you were interested. Then the usually couple weeks waiting period. If you get all set after the cut off date for sending out new magazines then you could miss your next one. But if you take the receipt you signed up for @gamer into the store and explain that your mag didn't show up they should give you the current month right there (this however has been YMMV for many people).

Thanks. Maybe I'll talk to the rep next time I'm in the store about this. He's the one who actually warned me about the mag in the first place.

Grabbed ME3 :360:, thanks a million OP. Lots of copies still left at my store, I'm thinking there's not a lot of CAGs around SLC.

And I wasn't smart enough to look if they had any PS3 CE's in stock...

I've never had them skip an issue, I'd guess that's fairly rare. Just make sure your address is correct upon signing up.

As for getting the first issue, remember that it is like any other magazine out there and takes 4-6ish weeks to receive your first mailed issue. They also only send them out at the beginning of the month - so if you have bad luck and just miss the mailing window you'll have to wait another month.

If you sign up in the later part of the month, you won't get the following month's magazine in the mail. If you sign up in the first week of a magazine being out, you might or might not get the following magazine in the mail. Again, 4-6 weeks.

From their FAQ:

Q - I'm a first time subscriber. When will my first issue arrive?
A - If this is your first time subscribing to @Gamer, your first print issue is shipped via US Mail and can take up to 4-6 weeks for delivery. Digital editions will arrive via email.

No problem getting :360: Mass Effect 3 but got the last copy of :360: Lollipop Chainsaw. Between a $10 copy of ME3 and a $8 copy of ME I see no reason to buy the ME Trilogy. I will be on the lookout for a cheap ME2 now.

Well, given the fact that the Mass Effect trilogy will be coming out in another month, it makes sense that they finally reduced the price of their stand along game.

I remember my first issue of @Gamer got me ME2 for $5! Too bad you missed out on that one.

Hoping to get ME3 on my way home tonight. I have a few games in my car to trade in because I want to upgrade my vanilla copy of Dead Island to the GOTY edition when that coupon becomes active, so I should be able to grab both with the credit.

Got the normal ME3 and LC, had $10 RZ and $20 cash in my pocket so as far as my wife knows I only spent $1.75.

Picked up a ME3 and Lollipop this morning for the xbox, Thanks OP.

So I had a extra ME3 coupon, while standing in line there were a couple of young guys behind me that I seen back in the gaming section. I decided to ask them if they wanted a coupon that would get the ME3 for $10. They both look at me like I'm crazy and like I was trying to hand them a anthrax laced coupon or some shit. They were like naw man and stepped back away from me as I was handing it to them, maybe they were stuck on not talking to strangers IDK.

:lol:I had the exact opposite experience. I was in BB to renew my Gamer's Club Unlocked subscription for another year and was debating if I wanted to grab Mass Effect 3 for PS3 for $10 or not, since I haven't even opened the copy of Mass Effect 2 I bought for $5 a while ago.

So as I'm standing there shooting the shit with the gaming rep, this hot mom comes up and asks him about Madden 12 for the 360, which she wants to get for her kid. She has a pre-owned copy in her hand. So I had my coupons out anyway to rip the ME3 one off of the rest and notice the $15 off a pre-owned Madden 12 or NCAA Football 12 one. I'm like 'I have a coupon here that'll get you $15 off that used price' and hand it to her.:) She's smiling and thanks me at least 2-3x.

Then, of course, I did nothing to follow up.:-s#-o Not that I woulda ever stood a chance with a woman like that anyway, but I mean....damnnnnnn.:drool:

I think my wife seeing me play a game with a highschool cheerleader that allows upskirt camera views might dampen any hopes of bedroom co-op more than budgetary concerns. :)

By the way boys and girls, I figured I should mention this(already mentioned in another @Gamer coupon thread), but I'll put this here too in decent sized font for everyone to see.

If you're up for renewal soon for the GCU and really wanted that COD "special" issue, then renew NOW and have them scan that issue when at the store renewing. WHY?

THE $10 COD special issue WILL ZERO OUT when renewing the GCU if they scan it as part of the transaction!!!!

I did just that about thirty minutes ago and no, it did not zero out... They had to manually zero it out for me.

This was a renewal, and they brought up the magazine and zeroed it out manually without me asking though.

It worked for me automatically. They scanned my RZ card, the flyer barcode to renew for $14.99 and then the special edition mag. It brought up a pop up before the end of the transaction to apply the package and then it zeroed the mag out while charging me $16 for the renewal.

How does this work? I keep seeing people mention a $5 coupon for renewing or various promotions like this but every time i ask the employees at the store they look at me with a blank look on their face and say there are no promotions for renewing at all.

How does a magazine zero out if you renew? And whats the COD special issue?

I hadn't even looked on here before heading to Best Buy to trade in a few things today, was going to use the ME3 coupon to get it for $20, so imagine my surprise when I saw it marked down so I could get it for $10 instead.

So now I think I've used at least one coupon from every issue since I got the subscription in the spring (the one with Rage for $5).

Oh god that should be my new signature.

But looks like I'll pick up ME3 Thursday after I make some trades towards Dishonored (crossing my fingers sleeping dogs doesn't drop with the new @gamer coupons coming out before thursday)
