Any deals on X-box games

My dad is getting a X-box for christmas and i plan on getting him the game HALO. Was just wondering if there is a suggested sight to go to, to get it and maybe saving a few bucks. Amazon has it for 49.99 (which im sure is the same price as most places) Just thought i would ask....Thanks

New XBOX games are $49.99 at any store you go to. Is there a reason that games can't be discounted?

Costco and Sams have games at a slight discount (~$45) -- at least you don't have to pay the extravagant Amazon shipping.

Use your AMEX Blue card at Virgin Megastore and you will save 30%. They have a decent selection of games including Halo.

I have seen both ads for $44.99 and coupons for 10% off at various stores.

I would expect to see some of the early releases come down in price after the first of the year.

Never heard of them.

$3.50 shipping on a single item.

Maybe you would save a few dollars over a sale plus sales tax. Your call if you think that is worth it.

I've had no problems with them. They are Bizrate.com and Gomez.com certified.

Yes, shipping is a bit high, but still one of the best prices online.

BTW, Shipping on:

2 Games = $4.50
3 Games = $6.48
4 Games = $8.64

I'm looking at their XBOX controllers. I'm assuming they are the official XBOX controllers whish are $40 usually. They have them for only $30.

They use media mail for their standard shipping. I found this out after some dvds took an awfully long time to get to me. I stopped using them since I think that $3.50 for media mail is a bit much...
