Just got the email myself. Got excited and then I was immediately disappointed. Gamefly doesn't even try anymore. Most of the prices are within a few bucks of new prices.

It's not supposed to be a good game, but The Seven Deadly Sins for $15 is a pretty decent price. It only came out in March and still trades into GS for $15 base, so you can play it and trade it in before it tanks.

I have been collecting a lot of the mainstream anime games for giggles, I’d say $15 is a pretty good price for this one.

Try to buy at least two games/movies in a single order. The previous thread had complaints of slow shipping which is likely because Gamefly uses Media Mail on single item orders but two or more are sent through Priority Mail.

These sales are a good deal on specific titles that come with a pre-order bonus that is no longer available on the current print or used.

It's cheaper to send one game 1st class than it would be media mail rate. Seems dumb that a company whose primary function is to send games through the mail would do anything other than 1st class.

A lot of times companies like this have a bulk discount. All their game rentals are mailed media so I'm sure it's cheaper to lump in single games sold into that cheaper bucket.

Oh wow, I wasn't even thinking about that. That will definitely make it worth it.

Only problem with that is that it's against USPS regulations to send video games as media mail.  I had a seller ship 2 Sega CD games to me a few years ago via media mail.  The package was opened and inspected by USPS, and I was told to pay the difference between media mail and priority mail.

As a letter carrier this is all correct. Video games are not media and can't be sent that way. Also, like the other poster said, that would be stupid anyway cost-wise. For an item that size first class is cheaper, much faster, not subject to inspection, forwardable, and returnable. Media rate good for books only TBH

I remember telling the seller that and he went on this tirade about video games being media.  Apparently he thought I made PO rules
