Yea I got 6 games from the MS Store myself(Forza Horizon, Dragons Dogma, DBZ UT, Asura Wrath, Ace Combat, and Sonic Gen). I thought about canceling Skyrim, but I'll wait to see if MS restocks. If I nab one for 10, I'll just sell the 25 one on ebay after the holidays. If I dont nab one, then Im still cool with getting it for 25, since its content is so large on top of me being a Scrolls fan. :)


I'm sure Skyrim is well worth $25. My problem is that I'm ordering 10 games from MS so by the time I get around to playing Skyrim, it will probably be $20 or less somewhere.

Just wanted to share a quick story. Purchased a few of the great deals on Amazon last night using my Amazon Credit Card. Woke up this morning and there was an issue with my card the 1st time. First order came to a little over $20 after gift cards and Reward Points applied. After reentering my information my Reward Points were no longer being used making my order closer to $50. Chatted with 1 Rep and they told me I would be charged only the $20 but they didnt seem too sure. Chatted with a 2nd Rep who was kinda rude and told me I would be charged the full amount and nothing they could do. This forced me to Chat with a 3rd Rep who was amazing. Basically I canceled my order, redid it and they not only price adjusted the original order amount but took off a few extra bucks in the process. I don't chat with Amazon much because I don't shop there as much as I would like to but when I do rarely have an issue the problem is always resolved.

Working in retail I know that 9 out of 10 times a bad experience will be told to friends but only 1 out of 10 times a good experience will be told to friends and this was a deff a good experience I wanted to pass along to fellow CAGers.

MS Store changed a sh*t load of games to 10 dollars. When did that happen? This is better than walmart and amazon(unless amazon has already PM). And Skyrim for 10 has already sold out lol


yea, but i kinda reminds me of bestbuys clearance/ blow out sale with those prices

Yeah, not gonna happen. As much as I love Amazon and will always order stuff from them, the days of them offering the deepest discounts or leading the way for bargain titles is long, long gone almost across the board now. Especially when it comes to BF. It certainly is not even close to being the "event" it used to be there.

Also makes me worried that -- if we didn't have BB or other retailers initiating these deals -- what kind of prices would Amazon have without the competition? It's like they lower them in response to what others are doing...not initiating these deals on their own (this now sold-out $100 Bond Blu Ray set notwithstanding)

Is anyone else having a problem with Amazon? When you go to the deals page, everything shows as "Currently unavailable"

Yea, that's because too many people have taken advantage of Amazon in the past. Those people have ruined it for everyone. Those people are people among us on this very site.

well, amazon was the only retailer who provided the $179 vita bundle deal with added bonus.

lol, you are putting it too lightly, people were literally threatening amazon customer service with death threats over $5 price difference, because they bought certain games for $5 more

unfortunately as far as Amazon goes you had a bad experience, normally amazon will take care of your problem and throw you a few dollars the first time you contact them not the 3rd they have the best CS in the world sure they don't have a good knowledge of the english language but they always come through

I just noticed that the Ratchet and Clank Collection is currently the same price, $15, as its lightening deal was earlier.

Don't know if you've seen it yet but it's OOS on Amazon but click add to card on right from Amazon and it is $20...



Turtle Beach X12's $29.99, beat yesterdays and BF's best price by $5. I never got around to ordering them yesterday. :applause:

Ment BF everywhere and their own price which was $35 PMed to GS. It's not surround but it's got great reviews and it's half the normal price.

If you search for the games by themselves they'll show up with the sale prices, it just doesn't work if you click on them on the deals page. Weird.

I would totally recommend against the X12. There's a reason they are always around this price and just getting cheaper. They are annoying with long cables that get tangled up. I'd much rather have a wireless mic and not having wires run across the floor in my room.

I bought mine last Black Friday and never use it. I prefer to use the cheap Microsoft 360 headsets.

It is down to 20, look at the other buying options.

Anyone else get super fast shipping on their lightning deals? R&C Collection shipped out yesterday with an estimated delivery date of Tuesday and it arrived today (on a Saturday, no less). I had a similar situation with The Lorax blu ray lightning deal I ordered earlier in the week. I used Prime shipping for both.

One of my items from Amazon is being delivered by FedEx. I don't think I've ever seen Amazon use anyone other than UPS/USPS in all the years I've been ordering from them.

That's seriously pathetic if you aren't joking. If your life comes to you threatening customer service with death threats over $5 its time to off yourself :drool:

Ordered X-Com on the LD yesterday at 12PM. It already arrived at my house before 12PM.

That may be the fastest shipping on any order from them yet.
