Nice! I still have my $40 credit for video games from a similar deal they ran in November. I wonder if I can use that credit to reach the $80 and thus get me another $20.

Hmm... I mean I don't really care for many of the 360 titles they have for this offer. Now if they had Assassin's Creed II and maybe one other game I was interested in, I'd probably jump on it.

That said, most of those games are priced higher than they are at Gamefly's sale, and higher than they are at www.webuy.com

^ used games selling for less than new ones? Inconceivable!

For those with a PS2 or launch PS3 with BC there are some good PS2 titles in the list like Shadow of the Colossus, Kingdom Hearts and Persona 4.

WAIT RLY THOSE R NEW AND THE CHEAPER ONES I'D RATHER BUY R USED? ZOMG NO WAY.

I can get Fable 2 for $15 at www.webuy.com or in their store... or I can get it for $28 on Amazon "new." That is much more than ebgames typical $5 or $10 New/Used price difference... we are talking about almost twice the price.

you have a point, you can save some money buying used, but buying new helps to support the developers...

personally i like new because i'm a germaphobe... and amazon has pretty much been stellar in the customer service department.

Plus there ARE a few gems to be had with this promotion, just gotta do your homework...

like fallout 3 is 27.99 at amazon NEW and qualifies for the promo and at webuy it's $28.00 USED (do you need to pay tax/shipping? never heard of them)

Yah, you raise a good point. And frequently Amazon does have great deals and the lack of tax is a huge plus.

I've never ordered from www.webuy.com, I usually go to their store in Downtown Crossing in Boston, MA.

Legally, you do still owe the tax in most states, as a 'use tax' on your income tax form.

true....legally you do still owe 'use tax' to you state, but i'm willing to bet less that 90% of online shoppers even know this.

and of the 10% that do know it, probably and another 90% ignore it.

i can tell you that come april 15th, i don't spend my time tallying all the hundred or so online purchases i've made during the previous year
