First lightning deal is XBox One S 500GB BF1 Bundle with Skyrim steelbook case for $249.99.

 

 

https://www.amazon.c...&pf_rd_i=468642

 

Lightning deals should pop up on this site whenever it happens. Seems to be random this year maybe instead of giving us a heads up? Also has a section for PS4/XB1/3DS to make it easier to find deals.

amazon deals are not good so far, they are basically PM'ing every other retailer.

Which is essentially what they've been doing for a few years now.

Word of caution regarding the Video Game Deals link posted above, which I've been using myself:

The "Upcoming" tab is not reliable.  I've been watching that page for days, and I know for a fact the Skyrim Special Edition and Dishonored 2 deals were not listed there at all before showing up on the Active tab at 12am EST.  

 

Also, the PS4 Slim bundle LD was posted in the "Everything Else" category, NOT Video Games, inexplicably.

 

 Amazon's deals are popping up without warning and sometimes in nonsensical places.

Nope. That's why the Amazon column of the CAG BF spreadsheet is...blank.

Picked up the ps4 bundle. I applied for their credit card and was able to get a 70 dollar gift card. Total was 194.95. Not bad overall.

Amazon better hurry up and announce what will be discounted or all my money will be going again to Best Buy like it has for the last 2-3 years.

I have the lightning deal sitting in my cart for the PS4 bundle. Worth it?

 

It's the same as the other ones just with different games right? I think I'd be more interested in Skyrim and Fallout than Ratchet and Clank and Last of Us?

 

Though with the Best Buy one I'd get reward points?

 

Any suggestions?

That's the same price it already hit this past summer, so I expect the price to drop further within the next few weeks -- s/b $9.99 at the most, imo.

Yep I refuse to buy Tomb Raider until I finish the first one and Uncharted 4. Backlog is deep.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition - Xbox One
Skyrim Special Edition
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC
$29.99

 

Skyrim is $24.99 now.  I just ordered it and went to cancel my Best Buy order I made about an hour ago and it won't let me.  If they want to ship it to me and let me return in next week in store that's their loss.  I'd be fine with cancelling it now and saving them on the shipping.

 

The thing is Amazon says Saturday (as in Nov 26th) delivery.  Best Buy is telling me December Fuck ing 5th!  Screw that - not sure why they can't cancel it before they put it on the pony for the ride out here.

I tried to do the same with my Battlefield 1 order at BB. Just moments after I ordered, it was already too late to cancel. I'm not sure if there's much of a point to even having a "cancel" button. I had the same though seeing the Saturday delivery date for Amazon and the December one for BB.

I'm sure you'll get the Best Buy copy before 12/5. In previous years, it's taken 1 week max to get BF orders. They seem to be putting very conservative delivery estimates on orders this year.
