FYI those credits potentially suck.  It only applies to amazon products and not third party sellers.  I ended up having to buy a digital game because other than toilet paper or something I couldn't find an amazon item worth buying.

Ok not free but $1, so I'm counting it.  Buy a 3 month trial of spotify for $1, upgrade it to the family plan and you get a free google home mini.  Then cancel everything and you won't be charged 14.99 for the family upgrade.  You better do this one before spotify realizes what a huge mistake they made.  ;)

Amazon's trade in prices not keeping up with their price matching on Black Friday video game deals.  If you can beat games quick you can make a couple bucks selling it back to Amazon.   :lol

Or a tall boy for the road.

Gamestop doing free shipping, no minimum.  Contemplating stocking up on some $0.97 PS4 games just for the cases.....

That's a pretty good idea.  A good time to buy cables and stuff.

They've got 3 PS4 games on sale for $1 each.  I grabbed one copy of each game and God of War.  Subsidized with some gift card I had laying around.  ~$15 real money.

Apparently Santa is brining me the ps4 spider man bundle, so I'm probably going to pickup god of war as well.  I want to see what they have in retro controllers as well.... typically snes/nes gamepads aren't that expensive on their site, but the shipping always kills it.

There's so many cheap exclusives your mind will be blown. Also get a PSVR unless you've already got a VR setup. They're super cheap today.

I'm thinking about it.  I just haven't seen any psvr titles that really excite me.  At least not $250 worth of excitement.

Picked up God of War (ps4), Horizion:  Zero Dawn Complete and Assassin's Creed Odyssey for the price of a normal game.  Noticed that, as you said, most of the exclusives are really cheap. I don't think I saw a single one over 10 bucks. 

Any recommendations?

Off the top of my head...

If you don't already have them - Last of Us, Ratchet and Clank.  (I still think Ratchet and Clank has the best graphics on the system)

I would be very surprised if you didn't like Until Dawn.

Order 1886 is cool if you get it cheap.

I don't care for the Bloodborne/Dark Souls games much, and I've given them many tries.

Only Uncharted I really, really liked was Uncharted 2, but Uncharted 4 is pretty good.

Infamous Second Son

If you go VR, check out Astro Bot and Moss.  Drive Club VR looks muddy but it's pretty much ruined all other racing games for me.  Kids go nuts over Job Simulator.

Thanks man, I'll check those out and see if they look interesting to me. 

Btw... about the VR thing.... are the lollipops really needed for most games or not?  I've read people say both.  I could kick myself for not picking up some of the move controllers and the camera last year at the pick n pay..... they had 'em for 5 bucks a pop.... the only problem was digging in a massive bin for all the parts.

Most games don't require them but I'd get that $250 bundle that includes them. There's some worthless PS3 Sports Champions game that came with a Move and a PS3 camera. Think I paid ~$25 shipped for a sealed set.  I almost hate to post that, but if PS4 owners haven't figured out it's the same controller by now...

Probably paid another $25-30 shipped for a loose used Move controller.  No idea what market price is these days.

On the old eBay it looks like you can get the eye for around 7 bucks and if you really scrounge you can get the controllers for around 10 a piece.  But yeah that sports bundle is still there.  :)

Yeah those look like 99 cent games :) 

I think I'll do the same for a couple of Wii games so I can finally have a proper box for Wii Sports and Links Crossbow Training.

Not completely free, but worth getting.  Steam Link boxes are on sale for $2.50
https://slickdeals.net/f/12376756-steam-link-direct-from-steam-2-49-shipping?src=catpagev2_catnav_computers

Why would you want one?  Well apparently you can now put retro arch on them, making it literally the cheapest emulation box you could possibly purchase. 
https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/steam-link-retro-gaming/

I've already got one that I haven't hacked yet, but at this price I might pick a couple more up.

Got bug problems?


Picked up a couple Skylanders games for the wii to use as sacrificial boxes.  Also got a singstar game for the ps4 that looks like it might be seconds of fun.  3 bucks total.

Had a $5 Amazon gift card on my Coke account for no discernible reason.  Worth logging in and clicking on unclaimed rewards.  Have to redeem it by Dec 12.  Go go go.

Nice. Time for some more dishwasher pods.

I've gotten a couple of the CVS $2 cards. Guess I'll use them on toilet paper.

I have so many AMC tickets /drinks/popcorn vouchers it's unreal. We usually go to a movie theater that's also a restaurant and also expensive because it filters out children and unaccompanied teenagers.... But damn.

As I've gotten older I just don't like going to the movies anymore.  I rarely get the time to go anyway and when I do it's usually at night so I've got to deal with all the idiot teenagers.  I wish we had some of those adult only theaters in town. Eh, I've got a 50 inch 4k tv so I'm good. 

Thinking of doing some magazine subscriptions to get rid of some of these caps.  I can add them to the library (aka the back of the toilet). 


Btw dunkin is doing $2 cards as well.  I'd jump on that one all day but the last Dunkin Doughnuts left town about 10 years ago.

Target emails are finally being sent out. 

Btw as I was putting them in, I noticed that now target allows you to add up to 10 cards to an order, for a total of $20 off when these puny $2 cards come up.  So that's worth doing again.  I also noticed that there is a "primary card" option now.  I don't know if that merges the cards or not, but I thought I would mention it.

2019 free crap. Got the red bull fridge from my ex wife store.

Pro tip. The pac man red bull thing has ended today. Check your local stores that have these and you might be able to snag one if the employees have not already.

Or just say your from red bull and are there to pick it up. Red bull is not picking them up and most places are just told to get rid of them so it's not really stealing  ;)

Wow, I wouldnt mind having one of these, but havent seen them in any stores in the south central Kentucky, USA area. What type of stores have them? Maybe Im shopping the wrong stores.
