Anyone here shop at G2A.com they have some really good deals.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor STEAM CD-KEY GLOBAL for $15.64 Dying Light STEAM CD-KEY PREORDER GLOBAL $33.17

Plus my son said if you put the code Frank you can get another discount or something. Anyone??

Be VERY careful with G2A, they are cheap, but they are also a marketplace so are open to scammers.

 

a, If you buy from one of their sellers and DON'T pay for the G2A Shield, then it is on your hands if they key does not work. I have had over 40+ purchases (admitedly some real bargains!) through G2A with no problems, but I bought Lego Batman 3 without the G2A shield a few weeks ago and found the key had already been activated on another account. Support's response was; No Shield? Then Tough s**t!. They didn't even try to contact the seller to help sort it out.

 

b, If you DO have a legit problem AND used Shield, then refunds can take over a month (with constant pestering)!

 

c, If you do buy a key from them, do not sit on it, activate it ASAP!

 

d, On top of the charge for using Shield, they also charge a fee on each sale. So the FINAL price = game price + shield service + fee.

 

btw, G2A Shield is a small program they send you, like Teamviewer, where one of their support staff watches your screen remotely while you activate the key to verify if the key works, rather than take your word for it.

 

Personally I will not be using them again.

What happened with Franky y Krugozor D:! 

 

Just waiting for them to see their prices of the halloween sale.

Was wondering the same thing, it seems awfully quiet considering :(

 

Is anyone going to offer up a Halloween sale price list?

 

On Topic: Price check for Long Dark please? Anyone able to beat 4xTF2 keys or money equivalent?

They are a grey key seller, i.e. they re-sell keys/gifts, etc. They are not (AFAIK) an official reseller in anything.

 

They have a open market place (with a rep system) where you can sell your own keys. This can include region restricted games too, but the region restrictions are usually labelled.

 

And.... they charge a fee on top of the price (around $1)

 

But...

 

I have bought 40+ keys from them (can provide proof if need be), no problems.

 

They do have a guarantee system called G2A Shield (at optional cost of around $1) where they verify the key has worked, using a system similar to Teamviewer to watch you activate the key. I doubt they will refund if you do not use this!!

 

The only issue I have had was with a refund. I added 2 Titanfall Season Passes to my basket by mistake, anything over $8 I use the guarantee system. And I explained to the live chat rep that I had paid for 2 copies in error.

They said I could get a refund on the spare no problem, and should only take a couple of days. It took just over a month to actually get it back. But I DID get it back!

 

So yeah, they are safe to buy from, BUT make sure you triple check everything before hitting that pay button.

 

When buying from G2A, check the following things:

-Region restrictions (read the item description)

-If a Marketplace seller, check the rating.

-Remember to add the cost of Shield (optional) and the transaction cost (not optional) to any listed price before going through the buying process, it will save you time.

-Check the cost all the way through to final payment.

 

Hope that helps.
