Fair enough.  I was thinking more along the lines of grease or paint stains, ect…. I rarely spill food. 

Picked up my stuff.  Deal or No Deal didn't come with the case.  :(  Getting to try out the giant orange obelisk at Walmart was worth it though.....the little robot arm that gets the stuff is cool.

I’d spend it on Subway but I ate one of their sandwiches 2 weeks ago and ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- blood.

Second time in a week someone has brought up that band.  Are they touring or something?

Always.

I've seen em 13 times in 17 years. Sometimes as headliners, sometimes as a supporting band.

5 years later and Spectrums owner shows up and wants it back.  Have a free slot in the game room, he promptly offers an old gun game and my wife schedules us to pick it up in 3 days.

....sigh.....

Ahhh, Nephasth knows. I haven't cared for them. Some titles are easy to remember, as I'm sure was intended.

Finally something to buy with coke points... although it kinda sucks.  On the website via computer only there is a limited time offer where four caps gets you a $2 iTunes gift card.  It's really glitchy... for me the offer didn't show up except via the chrome browser.

Thanks for the heads up.  Those are same as cash in my house.

I made some templates today to drop Lowe’s coupons into.  There’s a website that generates the bar codes, I make them look more legit.  Saved $20 on a patio chair tonight...

I got a great freebie a few days ago...

A excellent condition PSone with all cables, controllers, box etc.

To add to my luck it was supposedly broken but works fine :)

I've got to rethink the whole keeping boxes policy.  My closet isn't full of cool gaming loot, rather it's full of boxes to gaming stuff.   At the same time I totally need to get me a NES Deluxe set box..... I'm beginning to think collecting is a borderline mental disorder.

Know that feeling Howard!

I have a huge collection of boxes for my old consoles but I try to keep it sensible.

That's what attics are for.  After I drop dead of a stroke at 45, some kid is going to ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- his pants in 20 years when he goes exploring up there.

I'm sincerely trying to down-size so I have more room for the things I really like.  We've got three storage buildings on the property full of crap.  One holds my tools so that's ok, but the other two just have junk in them like old arcade parts and xmas decorations ect…  Been going to goodwill on a regular basis for a couple of months donating old clothes and such... I'm going to get everything fairly empty and then fill it with all new junk.  ;)

Oh I have even more ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- in the Attic LMAO.

But most of my console boxes are on display in the game room, Just wish I had more room to put proper shelving up to display them properly as opposed to atm they are sort of organised into a wall :p

Not free but certainly cheap.... Official Wii SD cards for a dollar:

https://slickdeals.net/f/11958411-gamestop-0-99-official-nintendo-wii-dsi-memory-sd-2-0gb?src=catpagev2_catnav_games

You might ask what am I going to do with a puny 2 gig card?  Well for a NES or Atari flash card 2 gigs is massive.  Also having an official card would be good for collecting and it's just a frikkin buck.

Coke is doing target gift cards again.  4 caps gets you a lousy $2.  Website only, no app.  Be warned, they've changed the way you enter caps now and it's annoying as the webpage reloads and you have to scroll back down after each entry.  Regardless, I got rid of a bunch of caps so I'm happy.

Yeah I'm not super thrilled about it either.  I'm thinking these might go to giftcardgranny or something so I can trade them in for cards that are actually useable.

I only redeemed on one account.  Oh well.  I'll add it to the small gift card pile on my Target account and use it towards detergent or something.

Yeah our Target is way out in the boonies or I would do that as well.  It isn't worth it unless it's a decent deal.  I'll probably get a discount on a video game or something.

So I don't know if this helps anybody, but apparently you can buy video game gift cards with target gift cards again.   I'm not a huge fan of digital only, but it's better than trying to spend these measly $2 cards.

Thanks, that's good to know.

Redeemed some of my AMC vouchers from Coke today. Saw The Predator which despite what you heard is very entertaining. 2 sodas, 2 tickets, 2 tubs of popcorn = free.

Papa John can't stop himself and predictably his pizza chain is trying to make amends. $19 delivered for 2 larges inclusive of delivery fee and $5 tip. Not free but damn.

It kinda sucks that the head of Papa John's is such an ass because around here the local owners of the papa john's do a metric ton for charity.... they always have some program where you can some in an get a pizza for a discount and they'll donate %100 of the profits to whatever cause needs money at the time.

I boycotted them for years but finally relented this year.  If you keep an eye on promo codes you can do pretty good.  App comes in real handy mid party.

Not exactly free, but depending upon what you buy it could be very close. …….  eBay is doing one of their coupons again.  5 bucks off a 5+ order via the coupon code:  PERKMEUP

I ordered a second wireless controller for my NES classic that I never got around to buying because nobody ever wants to play Nintendo with me.  :(   Hey I got it for only 6 bucks so I'm happy.

Got my cases last night.  It was a bundle of 3 bubble mailers taped together.  There was $4 worth of stamps on it.  Figure another 50 cents each for the mailers.  Not sure this dude even broke even on his Buy It Now auction...

 :dunno

Anyway, my $2-5 games from RedBox look way more legit.  That was bugging me more than I realized.

How do they look when you get them from redbox?  Just a cardboard sleeve or something?  Never attempted to buy anything from them.

They look exactly the same as when you rent them Just a plastic clearish clam type sleeve. I don't know why I never thought about it before but I will be checking ebay for cases for the games I have bought from redbox. The no case thing bothers me more then I like to admit also.

They every so often clear out games really cheap.  Their updated menu system makes it a little harder to drill down by system, but it's pretty quick to flick through them all.  I got Doom and Dark Souls 3 for $5 each, Transformers Devastation for $2.  Don't need an account, either, just swipe your card.

Kane - PS4 covers print easily on an 8.5x11" sheet of paper.  My prints look fine once under the plastic sleeve.

Are you searching at the kiosk or on the website.  I tried the site but it told me there aren't any in my region, which is stupid because there are like 6, 10 minutes from the house.

This dude sounds like me.  Sometimes you want the stuff gone out of your house so you sell it because you know someone can use it.  Not to turn a profit.

Gas station sends me an email for two free Dunkin' Donuts iced coffees.
Iced coffees are $2.79 each or 2 for $4.
They rang up as free, but still issued the $1.58 discount for buying two.  :applaud:
