Thanks for bringing the reality that it all does add up if you actually follow through with it.

Amazons giving $1 no rush shipping digital credits.  Packages take about 5 days instead of 2.  These credits are good for downloadable games and Sony wallet credits.  If you see Sony put a game on sale, you can submit the lower price to Amazon and they have always matched it when I was persistent.

So I've churned free stuff into more free stuff....

Mortal Kombat X is $8 on Amazon, Evil Within is $6.59.  Hoping Amazon matches everyone else on Doom for $15.... Pondering Dishonored 2.

Red Box blowing out a bunch of games.  I picked up Doom and Dark Souls III for $5 each.  I'll use Al Gore logic and offset the expense by buying toilet paper or something from Amazon with gift cards.

So, the lack of cases was driving me nuts with these RedBox games.  Thankfully the dimensions are such on the labels that you can print them 100% size on regular sheet of paper.  Unfortunately, the PS4 game case dimensions are just weird enough that you can't use bluray cases.

This was the best price I could find on a reasonable quantity.... purchased with gift cards earned from scanning receipts in Wal-Mart parking lots...

https://www.walmart.com/ip/5-Blue-PlayStation-4-Game-Cases-1-Disc-Capacity-14MM/197886159

This ranks up there on my most frivolous purchases list....

Indeed. Isn't this something you could've gotten for free by dumpster diving behind gamestop?

These were inexplicably $2 shipped yesterday, and I actually needed a couple.

5 are en route as my RedBox offset.  Damn things were $9/each at Lowe's.

And here's another price mistake.... for those of you needing a present for your wife....

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001KOTRJA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

Retail's about $140 on that.  Reviews state you're actually shipped the 3.4oz/100mL size....

Go go go.

Coke now giving away Target gift cards.  5 caps = $5.  Limit one per account.  They aren't really blowing me away on the PS4 game front, but might be of interest to some of you.

EDIT: Got a few codes.  Was able to price match GameStop and get Mafia 3 for PS4 for free from Target.

Floodlights arrived and installed... A little dimmer than I'd like but $2 shipped is $2 shipped.



Another free game for the shoebox...

So, the coke Amazon gift card thing wound down.  You can always tell when coke does a decent giveaway because ALL code packaging disappears from public trash and recycling bins.  Oh well, at least I got some steps in.

Never got my PS4 cases, so Walmart refunded my gift cards.  Used that to buy Titanfall 2.... Let's see if it arrives.

Well, made $40 cash in an hour.  As a guinea pig on some MRI imaging protocols.  That was one of the weirdest experiences of my life.  Thankfully no tumors found.

And that money was promptly taken to the poorest area of Houston and converted to 30lbs of turkey legs and 40lbs of chicken.

Wait so you got 70 pounds of meat for $40? Or you used it towards the cost?

Was there an intermediate conversion to food stamps?  ;D

How are you preparing the turkey legs?

Nobody here buys them, so they're always reduced for quick sale.
That and the multiple flavors of chicken sausage, which is just a bad idea to begin with.

I quit buying discounted meats.  Usually it's ok, but those few times it wasn't was murder on my stomach and bowels.  Man years ago there was this commodities program for striking miners and the stuff you got from them was top notch.... some of it came from the infamous "government cheese cave".  Google that one, it's worth a read.

It's oddly this very nice butcher shop full of friendly employees in a sea of day drinkers and extreme poverty.  They put random stuff on sale every week, I keep an eye on their facebook page.  I've grown to prefer turkey wings but, on sale is on sale.

I'll probably soak these in Italian dressing and grill them low for New Years.

It's odd to find places like that.  You wonder how they stay in business given the location. 

I'm gonna deep fry me a turkey one of these years.....  You guys go ahead and dial "9" and "1" and when I give the signal..... :)

So this pretty much rounds it out for 2017.  Scan enough Walmart receipts and you eventually get a free game.

The remainder of my Amazon gift cards were blown on presents for friends kids.  Did have to laugh that the boys ended up with footballs and toy guns.  /Texas

Letís see what 2018 brings.... maybe a PSVR and trip to Zapcon.....
