Did you ever stop to think that there are other types of consumers out there than just you? :roll:

Zumba is a pretty popular franchise with women.


Yep.

If you guys ever look at the Amazon bestseller list in the videogame section, you will see the Zumbas and Dance Centrals are always right up at the top with Halo, CoD, and any other 'big' title.

Now I know what you guys were talking about when you were "Waiting for disappointment" lol 4 Zumba deals? The very last deal intrigues me though. Maybe a HORI fighting stick?

Ironically, you're complaining about the complainers. That makes you worse than the worse. Haha


I was complaining at all, simply stating there's tons of hypocricy 8-) Last time I checked, saying something was "funny" wasn't complaining :bouncy:

The prices are a joke. I guess you pay more then most cags...


I didn't say I actually buy games from Amazon often. The Gold Boxes rarely have a good deal on a game worth buying and even on the best Amazon PC deals, you can usually get the game cheaper on Steam or Green Man Gaming. The difference is that Amazon offers decent, but not the best, deals on a weekly basis while Steam offers massive discounts but only a few times each year. And Green Man has random deals that are usually tough to beat, even for Steam, because of the additional 25% off Green Man always seems to be offering.

If you're buying console games, there's rarely a big difference between Amazon, Gamestop and Best Buy but Amazon often comes in a few bucks cheaper or offers more promotional credit.

It should say "All Video Games and a Gold Box Event" instead.


Reminds me of the Bob's Furniture signs that would say "Going Out for Business Sale".

Does anyone know if Amazon takes issue with buying a gold box deal multiple times? Limit to 1 per order but I need 5 for family and work buddies. Don't want to get my account in trouble by helping out friends.

Amazon has free 2 day shipping, and countless more(and better deals) than Newegg ever could provide. Also one weekend of Microsoft deals doesn't even come close to what you could save through Amazon.

Which has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that they are a paid sponsor of this site. /sarcasm :)

The sale is horrible.. But can't blame Amazon for doing this, the 2 zumba games sold out. And it looks like the same thing will happen to the next 2 zumba. We may not like it but its very successful to them (so far) amazon gotta get that casual gamer money!lol

What is the NFS game? I hope its most wanted.

Newegg offering $10, $12, and $15 off preorders time after time, AND making them available with three day shipping for free doesn't come close to Amazon? CAG's Amazon fanboyism is really dumb sometimes. With their preorder deals, Newegg essentially have a discount on every game in their database before anyone else, and many of those games have yet to see a discount from anyone else for any amount.

Where do I get this free 2 day shipping with no $80 yearly fee and no $25 minimum purchase?

Good thing I gave the Wii to my wife. I'm sure I will have some new purchases on the CC. If she actually uses the Zumba it's a win-win.

I have to agree with this. Amazon was outmatched by just about every other retailer this year when it came to preorders, especially since they no longer have RDD-guarantee. They went from setting the standards for deals to rarely even price matching.

This year, I'd give best deals to Newegg or (as much as I hate them) Best Buy. Newegg is definitely worth giving a chance.

Amazon's pre order deals might not be as good consistently but overall they drop prices a lot faster, match most advertised prices(if not beat), and allow you to save on thousands of other items not just video games, and computer equipment. Also three day shipping doesn't equal Release Day Delivery. To a lot of people release day has value. Also not to mention flawless customer service with issues(at least in my experience) as a buyer(selling is another thing). If you only focus on pre ordering games then yes Amazon is left behind, but after that first week rarely does anyone beat Amazon without them matching if not surpassing the price.

I'd have to agree that Newegg has done better this year on preorder deals. If the year-end vote was just for that, I think they'd win my vote. But they need to work on their system as a whole. Orders cancelled without notice, but charged anyway and refunded a week later... Preorders that never ship as the item moves to backorder status, again without notice... I think reliability is still an issue. I can't even figure out in my account area how to see all of my preorders without going back to the original email confirmation and pulling the order number. I chance Newegg still but order issues cloud the improvements they've made on deals this year IMO.

Any opinions in which version is best for just dance? Kinect vs move?
