Amazing Deals!
« on: May 31, 2007, 10:39:43 AM »
DeepDiscount.com is having their amazing 20% off sale.  There are various coupons floating around, but I used DVDTALK.  It gets you 20% (I think) every single DVD and DVD set they sell.

What should you buy, you ask?

The First thing you should grab is Captain N: The Game Master.  Complete Series is $16.87 after discount.

Next up, go for The Legend of Zelda.  Complete series is $14.46 after discount.

Don't forget The Super Mario Bros. Super Show Volume 1 and Volume 2. $28.92 for the pair (after discount, of course!)

And, finally, for the best in home Nintendo entertainment, grab your copy of Super Mario Bros. The Move.  This ain't no game, but it is only $5.12 after the discount.

Additionally, I ordered the complete first and second seasons of House MD.  They go for around $40 each at Wal*Mart, and together they were $43.91 after discount (although I think these might be a newer combo pack or something...).

So... whoo!

I can't wait to get them all.  Additionally, I got American Dad season one at FYE for $10 (after $10 MIR).  Not a huge fan of the series, but for $10, I'll bite.  Then, last week, I finally got a good deal on Simpsons season 9 (Target for $20) and Family Guy Volume 4 (Frys.com for $20-ish).

I got some DVD watchin' to do.

Went through and made a second order, mostly for my wife, today...

Complete Friends.  God I hate this show, and now I'm going to have every single episode of it in my house.  Kill me. $131.90 After discount.

Complete Fawlty Towers.  An amusing show, although nothing to get too excited over.  $33.44 after discount.

And one last thing for me (I can't believe I forgot this one!) The Wizard.  Oh yeah.  $7.59 after discount.

Amazing Deals - General Chat Edition!
« Reply #5 on: June 15, 2007, 10:02:03 AM »
Wow.

My mother discovered these and I have to say, it's pretty darn cool.

Jelly Belly - the makers of the best darn jelly beans in the world - like the rest of us, isn't perfect.

Sometimes, their jelly beans have twins. Or triplets. Or some are too small or too large. Or slightly off color. Or way off color.

Instead of pitching them, they throw 'em all together in a giant vat, bag them in 2 lb bags and sell them as "Belly Flops".

They're just as good as regular Jelly Belly beans.

You can get random bags from the Jelly Belly Outlet store (official source)
http://www.jellybellyoutlet.com/

$8/bag, "FREEFLOP" coupon codes gives you buy three get one free.
Shipping for one bag (for me, at least) was about $6. Four bags is about $8.
The down side of ordering here is apparently, if you order more than one at a time, the bags will tend to have the same "mix" in them (whatever was being ran that day).

On the other hand, you can order from here:
http://www.jbflops.com

From the sounds of it, this is just someone who lives near the actual JB plant and buys them and resells them.
Bags are $8.50 and you can pick the random bag you get (see the site if that confuses you... ). Nice - since it allows you to get different assortments. Shipping from them is about $5 for every two bags you get.

Lemme tell you, these things are tasty. Well worth it. If I ever manage to get this 2 pound bag down, I'm totally ordering some of my own. Dang, they're good.

Why do we need this?  You created this like two weeks ago!
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

But both threads are titled as if they're both general, all-encompassing gaming-unrelated deal threads.

I got 24 Energiser batteries for $9.50 CDN last boxing day. Damn, that was a good deal.

No, they weren't expired

EDIT: Can we make this a junk food recommendation thread also?

For my first recommendation, I suggest the chocolate Curly Wurly. It's amazing - but sadly only available in the UK and Australia, I believe.

I figured since we have 3 video game related "Amazing Deal" threads, we could use one that is not related to video games.

In here you can post deals on computer parts, services, food, random items found online.
I'll go ahead and start it off

Pizza Hut: Any Size Pizza - 3 topping or Specialty for $10.99
You also get $5 off Fight Night Round 4 for Xbox360 & Free shipping with any online purchase

Circuit City.com (They are back... online atleast)
25 pack TDK DVD+R for $0.99

Those are from 2 years ago with no additional input. I would have never found them with our search system with out alot on manual digging. Besides, you didn't even support your own thread, you just made a new one. :D lol
either way. This is the new thread for 2009 and maybe we can keep it going this time.

For the record, I clicked "Search" and typed in "Amazing Deals" and found them. ;)

PROTIP:  Use Advanced Search and--if possible--narrow the search to just one board and select Search in topic subjects only.

You get much better results.

Amazon is running a promotion for its "Prime" accounts.

You can sign up for a trail Prime account by purchasing something and get free two day shipping or cheap as hell overnight shipping. What makes this great is that once you become a trail member, you get 3 months worth of free two day shipping.

They will automatically charge your card for the membership after the 3 months is up, but you can turn that off within your account.

So basically, you sign up by purchasing something, you then get free two day shipping, then you can immediately go to your account and turn the automatic billing off. Then, you can purchase anything within the next three months and have free two day shipping on it. Best of all, you don't have to worry about becoming a member because you turned that bitch off.

Maybe a mod will be nice enough to combine them all into one thread
