Are you a Prime member and did you select the 5-7 day shipping option with the bonus credit?

I'm not a prime member. I just selected 5-7 shipping. No bonus.

We have an Amazon shipping facility 2-3 hours away however.

Ahh. I took the 5-7 day shipping method with Prime for the bonuses and assume everything will arrive in one box because I got individual shipping confirms for everything the same morning. It makes sense. And I'm glad they bother to group the shipments. Clearly it also saves them money, but I'd also rather have one box on my doorstep than 7.

Same here. But I've been getting all individual boxes so far. My wife punches me for each package I get. My arm is very sore.

I'd rather the physical abuse than the emotional abuse of "the look."

I also saw it, and I got it. It is at the start area when you first sign into Xbox.

I didn't have an active gold account for a while. Maybe that was why I got that offer?

Maybe it was for people that used to have Live, but didn't ? Kind of like a promo price I guess.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

It's great that they are grouping orders this time around, plus I have $11 in streaming credit (so far). Amazon had offered mp3 credit to downgrade shipping during the summer, and I loaded up on mp3 credit that way. Used some of my streaming credit to rent Criterion's Fat Girl in HD. That was disturbing.

Even though I own a few of those already, I threw 15 bucks in for that bundle. And gave a vast majority of that to Child's Play.

That's a really neat deal.

Company of Heroes is a great game if you haven't had a chance to play it yet.

I was worried it was one of the earlier Saint's Row games, which apparently didn't get good PC versions.
