The LOWEST Red Dead Redemption 2 itself was on Xbox is $29.99. So yeah, $5 was too good to be true.
I think most of us would agree to that. However, you cannot overlook the blatant misleading description. Like there are at least twenty better ways to describe what you're getting.

Your kid sounds like a spoiled brat, how about instead of buying him crap he doesn’t need (assuming he is playing fortnite already on some kind of system) just teach him the importance of talking care of what he already has and realizing that buying shiny new stuff to play the same game is a waste of money and contributes to ewaste.
Fortnite runs on iPhones... new tech? Lol what? The game looks the same on every platform minus different resolutions and honestly who cares?
Oh wait, nvm just give into the capitalism, buy him the the XSX and a new 4K tv, so he can play... fortnite. I’m sure he’s learned by now they the only way he gets love from his parents is via shiny new stuff. I can’t/won’t deny him the meager scraps.
I'm not going to derail this any further and probably shouldn't have aired my frustrations here. He's 13 and doesn't ask for anything ever. But like most kids his age he plays a lot of Fortnite and actually places in tournaments once on a while so he just thought the new systems would have a benefit since a gaming PC has never been an option because believe it or not, we don't spoil our kids because they know there are more important things in life.
I'm leaving it at that but appreciate your parenting advice.

Now he comes up to me and says how Epic isn't utilizing any of the new system tech for Fortnite (that's all he plays) and that it's a waste and he wants a gaming PC (as if that's affordable for me right now). Kids these days I tell ya.

The Division 2 - Warlords of New York - Expansion - $8.99
Pretty sure that hasn’t been lower than $20 before
Yeah looks like there's a one day "singles day" sale for 11/11. Definitely will pick it up for that price even though I never completed the DC campaign.

Edit: My PayPal email says the charge is for $106.99 ($99.99 plus tax) instead of the $49.99. Again if it sticks I won't complain but I've never had a PayPal receipt be totally different than what the merchant showed on checkout before.

im getting a series x btw. If you are going to get a series s, why not just save 200 more for series x, while you are saving that 200, you can play project xcloud for the time being
Well for me, it's a nice option for my teenage son that wants "what's new" for Christmas but only plays Fortnite. So I'll go for the X and he'll be happy with the S.

Cost is not the issue, if it was on CDKeys I'd have already bought it. Just wanted to see if folks vouched for that website.
I know others have already chimed in but I had zero issues when getting in on this deal. I used PayPal which always makes me feel better about them being legit.
