Does all the light deal feature free shipping?


Can't they just put it up on-sale without this lightening deal stuff, sheesh.


Then they wouldn't get to enjoy all the ways people mangle the word "lightning".

Spiderman EoT is $15? They had it for $10 this summer

I hope I can get WWE '13 and GTA IV Complete bc that would beat wasting my time at WM. Plus I have close to $200 in credit that I havent been able to use

How will shipping work? Since these are spread out throughout the day and will be seperate orders, does this mean the under $25 will have shipping charges added to each order? That would really suck and pretty much kill alot of these deals

I'm curious cause lets say I wanted black ops and the ratchet and clank collection. Since they are in different time slots could I put blops in my cart and the price carries over to the new lightning deal for just a few minutes or does it instantly change? Just trying to dodge some shipping costs...

From my past experience, Super Savers Shipping is applied to the original price, not what its on sale for. If it orginally goes for over $25 then you are good and considering Ratchet and BO do, then you shouldnt have a problem. If its regularly under $25 on Amazon though, thats where you might run into a problem and Im not sure how this will work out on BF week

Seems amazon will have a better Vita Assassin's Creed bundle than everyone else:

hmmmm


He also has comments there clearly stating that the video game deals that are so far posted are just some of the deals. In case there was any contention on that.

I echo this sentiment. Traded in my 360 version (after 500+ hours) and I'm ready for round 2 on PC.


The Steam Holiday Sale should have you covered on that.

I am really enjoying WWE'13 its definitely better than WWE'12 the new Attitude Era mode is ten times more enjoyable than the crappy Road to Wrestlmania the previous games had.The Roster is huge,the online has been improved a lot.My favorite game mode has to be Universe Mode if you have never played the previous 2 games its basically Exhibition mode but with randomly generated story lines and you can create your own shows on any day of the week and create your own PPV's on Sundays,Choose who's going to be on what roster.And if your into Creating stuff the game has a huge Creation Suite which I find myself spending hours creating Wrestlers and arenas.

I just did some experimenting with adding lightning deals to my cart and it looks like it uses the lightning deal price when calculating super saver shipping. This kills any of the sub $25 deals for me.

Think I'll pick up at least one of the Lego games for $10-$15. (either Batman 2 or Pirates. any recomendations?)

Was really really really hoping for a Arkham City GOTY deal, but alas. Maybe Max Payne...

I'll think about Dishonored, really wish there would have been a deal on AC3.


There will be. It just won't be a lightning deal. Probably 30 to 35 all day kind of thing.

Alot of people are "Disappointed" I mean I am not exactly thrilled with all of the deals but I think it is just because they are all basically all matched prices and nothing really original. They are good deals though, $25 for games that came out as early as tomorrow lol... I personally was hoping for alot more 3DS titles. But I think with their deals of the day they will probably have something with that anyways.

SSX was on my list and was hoping for $10 but i will bite at $15.
WWE 13, Epic Mickey 2, Fifa, or NBA 2K13.
Possibly Lego Batman 2 for me.

I am just keeping my fingers crossed the daily deals are good

I really hope that the 250GB X-Box 360 Forza/Skyrim bundle for $200 is one of the daily deals. None of those other deals really interests me.

GMG just sent me an email regarding their new bundles (located at http://www.greenmangaming.com/bundles/) and there's a bundle for $20 USD that includes AA and AC GOTY (although, AA requires Capsule; AC GOTY is Steam). Just a heads up!

P.S. Voucher codes not accepted on bundles, I've found.

Doubt it. Typically, the lightning deals are the best deals. Lets be real, they aren't as good as other retailers. AC3 for 30/35 would be a lightning deal, which it is not. At best, they would only offer for $10 off.

Just realize Amazon gave up on video game sales. They don't do $10/$20 GC any more consistently. No fresh sales, only matches. Then this sale... poor in comparison to other retailers.

Why is everyone all pissy about matching? Assuming you can get the deal, that means no dealing with the crowds and wasting tons of time in the hopes that you can get a video game. I'm stoked with Amazon just price matching.

The problem with Amazon deals is that they are so scattered that it is hard to find multiple deals to add up to $25 for the free shipping. This kills any sub-$25 deals. I'm hoping that Walmart will have their deals online like in previous years, because their game deals come with free shipping.

Not much for me this year unless the list gets expanded. Planning on picking up :ps3: Sly Collection and :ps3: GT5 XL. I'm hoping for general sales on :ps3: Castlevania: Lord of Shadows and :ps3: Vanquish. Missed them last year and would love to see them for $5-10 this year so I can finally add them to the collection. Everything else that I'm interested in can wait until I see them cheaper, in light of my already insane backlog.

You do realize its already $10 off? They will have all day deals for titles like this. Always have.

For $10 I don't think you can go wrong with giving it a shot. Worse comes to worst, you trade it in and get your money back. That said, GT5 is a pure simulation racer. You'll need to know how to drive "properly" if you want to get good at, and eventually master, the game. It's a completely different experience when compared to an arcade racer like Burnout or NFS, but it's also extremely rewarding in the same way Demon Souls/Dark Souls is once you start to getting better.

My advice: give it a shot. You might find that you really enjoy it.
