Thankfully not. In all honesty, they've stepped up their package treatment and on-time game. Their tracking and routes are still horrible, though.

 

Statue is cool. Steelbook is cooler.

what, you really had laser deliver it to you?

Yes. I'd rather have UPS. At least I know when they are coming, even if it's the next day.

I get that everyone's saying these deals sucked but any time I checked, most of the deals were 100% claimed. 

Was that due to limited availability or something? 

 

 

I think a lot of people will impulse buy more when it's a lighting deal because it tracks the amount of claims for the item making you fell a sense of urgency to add it to your cart. 

 

I'd love to see Amazon start a monthly option for Prime. I'd definitely be interested in signing up in the Fall when I actually do order a decent amount of things from Amazon. Aside from the Holidays I usually will buy a few things here and there when I see a good sale, but I have never had an issue paying standard shipping and waiting. For gaming stuff though GCU has been such a great deal that Best Buy literally gets all of my gaming business and they also price match Amazon so if they have a better deal at Amazon, I will PM it at Best Buy. 

 

 

No, it's because everyone hits claim immediately and then just a fraction of them go through with the purchase within the next 15 minutes before their claim is removed.  The system is broken.   There are no ramifications for claiming the deal immediately.  It has become a contest for people just to see if they can win by claiming a deal. 

Not to mention we have no idea how many quantities of the items were available at the Lightning Deals prices.  I have a feeling some of them were really small.

My final? comment on this sale. All I bought (or could buy before everyone else added it to cart) was a 3DS version of The Legend of Korra. So Amazon:

did laser drop kick it to you


This pretty much sums up Lasership. My main residence in Miami has two large gates, one of which is for the service staff which features a large comm system built in that doesn't even require the driver to get out to buzz the main house. Yet every time I've received a delivery by Lasership the guy literally just throws the packages over the large gate. He's actually thrown packages clearly labeled as TVs or Monitors over the gate onto the brick pattern driveway... These guys are pretty unprofessional, even the delivery vehicle is just a privately owned van that features very little indication they are a delivery service. I think the only markings I've ever seen on the van is a hand written piece of paper on the windshield that read "Lasership".

lol you could always be a bitch to him if he literally does throw your fragile stuff over the gate like that and you seen him do it and complain yet lasership wont fix the problem? then just since like you said private own vehicle lol so since that is irratic behavoir a anonymous phone call to local law enforcement of a impaired individual acting irratic in a vehicle driving place to place tossing stuff over fences could make the driver take a whole new outlook lol

Amazon can Fuck themselves.

 

Send me MKX in a box 2x the size of the item w/ 1 paper protector, no bubble stuff.

 

Dented ass corners...and I can't complain since I got a stupid "you'll get banned" email this last year for them offering credit.

Got my Order Premium today. Didn't really realize just how gigantic the statue is, dunno where I'll put it.

 

Also thought the book would be more book and less pendant.

 

Still cool, excited to play the game.

Got my copy of The Legend of Korra this morning.
I can say with absolute assurance, that it was worth the tax I covered after using my $5 GC and nothing more. I do get some kind of sadistic joy from it's mind-numbing repetitiveness I admit (very little joy though), but that's probably just because I haven't owned a strategy game in far too long. I miss 'em.

TL;DR I'm glad I didn't actually pay $5 + tax for this. Yay Prime Day...

Haha. Got mine yesterday. I paid $5 + tax and know it is going to suck. Basically, I ordered a 3DS case with Korra on the cover and it happened to have a game inside.

Got my PS4 Far Cry 4 from Prime Day and they sent me the limited edition.  Anyone else get this version? I was only charged for the normal edition.  Maybe they just messed up?

The LE was a pre-order edition. You got some extra DLC
