Sure, soon as you refund my 25$ that your "support specialist" decided to cancel my account without my consent.

Nice, in for 5 cheeto-stained games that I could get quicker and free with Redbox promo codes.

I'd get it but since starting my new job I just don't give a fudge about gaming unless it's the weekend which thank god I have off every weekend.

Nice! I've wanted to try out Funky mode in Tropical Freeze and play the Odyssey levels in Captain Toad, but couldn't justify repurchasing the titles for Switch. For $1 I might as well.

 

Maybe I'll check out Kirby, as well.

This reminds me why I always hated Gamefly.

1 dollar to get at most 1 game shipped to you and you have 1 week to play it so you cancel after 1 month. Gotta know what you’re signing up for and aim low for that game you’ve been meaning to try that’s not a new release

I'm a cheap ass as much as the next guy but $1 for the chance to save $60 seems worth it even if it fails.

Same here. This will be the 4th time I've done one of these trials and I've never had time to finish more than 2 games but for $1 I'm not complaining.

I have never had their shipping times be that bad. I usually get through two games a month when I do their trial, though once I was able to get through three. They typically ship out the next game a day after USPS scans the game being returned to them. If USPS fails in scanning the return, then it will definitely slow things down.

 

It also depends on the length of the game you are playing. I only use gamefly for games that take no longer than 5-8 hours to beat. If you get an 80 hour game, then you probably are only getting through one game that month.

I signed up on Monday, games shipped out on Monday, and I still haven't received them. It depends on how far away your nearest shipping center is. I live in New England, and for some reason they always ship from PA. You'd think with NYC being so huge that they'd have a place there, or even in Boston. One week spent on waiting for the games to arrive.

 

EDIT: They only have 3 shipping centers now: LA, Austin, and Pittsburgh. Shit turnaround times for anyone not within a few days of those places.

That's why you do some research n pick a game that's new good n with an easy platinum. That way u save some money in the process. Rookie. JK

If you go to your Queue, next to My Queue there's a thing that says "Change Shipping Preferences".

 

It says the "default" is to ship the next available title immediately, yet somehow (despite never knowing this existed or changing it), mine was set to Hold My Queue for highest-rank title.

 

So yeah. Check that. I switched my preference and had two games ship out same day (#4 and #5 on my list)

I've never really had issues with gamefly when renting from them. this is my 4th or 5th time subscribing and I've always gotten atleast 3 or 4 games a month. definitely worth $1. i signed up thursday and a few hours later i had two titles ship. If I can get those two games beat and have another 2 shipped to me I will be pretty pleased.
