For sure!

 

If anyone is able to use it twice at Humble Store/Humble Bundles, I'd love an update. Depending what's offered I won't be making an attempt for a while since I have to spend $10 to see if it works, haha.

I mean, they have like 60 employees. The cap for small business is what, 500?

Just curious, did you get a credit right away or just the e-mail confirmation? I know the terms say to wait 90 days but in my experience with Amex promotions such as these, it gets applied significantly earlier than that.

 

And while I haven't personally tested it out, I see nothing in the terms to indicate you couldn't stack it at the same store multiple times.

Email confirmation only. You're correct, credit may take up to 90 days to show up. Double checked and haven't seen it reflected in my account as of yet.

Been meaning to pick up an Amex card.  They seem to have a lot of X% off Amazon promos more frequently than Chase.

If you want those promos, you'll want one that earns Membership Rewards points (as opposed to cashback).

Those are still valid? I signed up for that during the beta 9-10 years ago and still had money on the account, but I recall not being able to access anything after about a year. They also sent out multiple emails saying the program was terminated and we couldn't load money into our accounts. Wondering if they retained all of the balances after screwing people over, or if they just wiped us all.

 

Credit cards are shit btw, don't get one unless the rewards are outstanding.

So long as you pay off the balance in full each month it's basically free money with percentage cash back.  The really dedicated do a bunch of churning, rotating cards for the initial spending reward bonuses but I'm too lazy to bother with that.

Yes, you should. You should also know that taking out too many lines of credit hurts your credit score. Churning and rotating cards might be fine for people in their 40's who settled their families in forever homes, but I'd rather have one good card with great rewards than a bunch of open lines of credit that I'd look to cancel once I've fulfilled the introductory rewards terms and conditions. You might get $750 worth of "points" for spending $4,000 that you can use to travel for a vacation, but you still have to spend that $4,000. And if you use the card to pay bills, you're probably also using a payment processing service, another thing to keep track of. I bought Amazon stocks for $1900 in March and have seen prices hit $3,200 today. Much better usage of my money imo.

 

$750 is like 3 days of work for some of us. Just make more money and you'll be fine.

I still have my Serve account that only i use for the offers, just like the small business one now. bluebird is still around too, I only hear about that on slickdeals.

Funny. I bought Blood Bowl 2 Legendary Edition during the Steam sale and I actually returned it thinking it may get bundled eventually.

Under Bonuses, is it a free month of Humble Choice for the $1 tier or do you need to buy the $13 tier? It's not clear.

Was never a huge fan of Warhammer RTS, but that aside this still feels like an underwhelming bundle.  Dawn of War 2 and Space Marine are a decade old.  Space Marine being in the $13 tier = lolwut?

I've had Deathwatch on my wishlist for awhile now, essentially L4D but in the Warhammer 40k universe.  Glad its in the bta and not top tier.

 

I assume Space Marine is in the top tier since its the 'collection' that comes with all the dlc of which there is a bunch.  Seems like they were mostly skins so that you can play as different chapters of marines last time I looked.

 

Dawn of War 1 is pretty old but the campaign is good fun, definitely worth $1 on its own.

 

 

Edit: Scratch that the game I'm thinking of is Deathwing not Deathwatch.  If nothing else I have learned these past two days that I apparently have dyslexia.

Many, many people are saying it's only for the top tier.

 

Was hoping Blood Bowl Chaos Edition would be in the $1 tier BUT NO! Of course they put Vermintide in there YET AGAIN! SAD!!

Can you make an Executive Order and have them add Blood Bowl: Chaos to the $1 tier?

Thanks.

I looked at the Raspberry Pi bundle and as far as I can tell all of the books (all the way up to the $15 tier) are available for free on MagPi's website. Digital subscriptions to MagPi and HackSpace are all free. Even the free Raspberry Pi Zero W with 12-month subscription coupon is available to everyone on MagPi's website.

Paused for this month, was offered the $4 discount.  Hopefully it'll be offered again if August's bundle is worthwhile.

Taking the discount doesn't obligate you to purchase the bundle; you can accept and get the coupon applied to your account (good for 3 months) then pause after.

 

Also new Daedalic bundle is up

$15 tier is where it's at unfortunately. Fire was in a bad Groupees bundle. Some others been bundled only once or twice like the ones from previous Humble Monthlies. Top tier has all new this year games. I may go for it anyway and just gift/sell most of the rest, since I own most of those.

Iron Dagger and Iratus both look very interesting. Unfortunately, both in the top tier here.

 

I played State of Mind in Xbox Game Pass and really liked it. Good walking simulator/adventure game. Can't really go wrong w/ Doug Cockle (i.e. Geralt from Witcher games) as your lead voice-acting.

 

More of my thoughts on that State of Mind game over here:

I already have AER, Cryofall & Pillars of the Earth.

Iron Danger and Iratus are both on my wish list and I nearly purchased both during recent sales, so I'm in for $15.

Ahh adventure games are my downfall.  I don't know if they're so appealing to me because that was mostly what I played as a kid (love the old lucas arts games) or what the deal is but I seem to horde them on steam and then never play them.  Pretty sure I have at least half a dozen daedelic adventure games in my backlog already but I'm still tempted by the $1 tier.
