Thanks, Howard, I helped bump it to 53%.

No minimum order for free shipping from Target right now.

I actually opened Hitman 2 and replayed about 5 minutes of the first level before I fell asleep.  I figure I'll pick up Spider-Man and after that it's whatever VR deals I see.  And speaking of VR, Howard, you should pick up that $200 PSVR bundle.  I would be very surprised if you didn't like Astro Bot.

psvr is on the list this winter.  :)

Spiderman is really good, especially if you like spiderman as a character.  Out of my ps4 games that is the only one I've completely finished thus far.

Thanks for the Coke tips. They're not always available to me (this one was on the web page but not in the app) but I've got a pile of caps to burn.

You guys probably already saw that Harbor Freight has a coupon out for 30% off up to 9 items under $10.
https://www.harborfreight.com/

FYI getting multiple of the same item only counts as one item.
I bought a bunch of C clamps last time and each size clamp only counted as one item despite getting 4 or 6 of each.

This is the way it worked last time anyway.

Yeah our harbor freight is a bit of a drive unfortunately.  I might go anyway and stock up on bits and stuff.

I just bought this sweet Arwing model.... apparently it comes with a game or something.   ;)

https://www.amazon.com/Starlink-Battle-Atlas-Nintendo-Switch-Starter/dp/B07DF43L23/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=starlink&qid=1574469653&sr=8-1

It's also on sale for the same price at gamestop today only, but you'll have to do free store pickup and no amazon digital credit for slow shipping.

Added ps4 Spider-Man to the shoebox of shame today.  Completed the work walking challenge so Iíve got a couple hundred bucks in amazon gift cards.  Just think, while you were all forcing me to day drink at Zapcon, I was logging steps the entire time.

The tell-tale Batman games are on sale for like 3.75 a piece on the switch.  I'm not a huge fan the genre, but I thought I would mention it as gold coins expire every few months.

Persona 5 sitting in my cart, itíll look good next to Yazuka 0 in my box I guess.

Only telltale games I enjoyed were the walking dead ones.  I was bored senseless by borderlands, game of thrones, the fairy tale one....

That StarLink starter kit came in today.  I played around with it for a few minutes.... The game is actually pretty good.  The Star Fox characters are fully integrated into the story as well, so I might play this one.  The Arwing model is awesome and the little docking station used to read all the AR stuff is fairly clever and can be used as a display stand for the ship.  Other than being an obvious ploy to get kids to buy more plastic toys I have no clue why this didn't catch on... it's certainly better than those stupid Skylanders. 

I've still got gift cards burning a hole in my pocket....  Let's see what Black Friday/Cyber Monday/whatever nets me in my quest for sweet sweet gaming booty.

Turns out you can combine Target gift cards on their website now (not the app).  Makes it easier to use up those $2 Coke ones.  I spent mine on Ace Combat for the PSVR missions.

Eh I held out to see the turkey day deals but other than resident evil 2 nothing really tempted me so ace combat 7 it is!  I've still got like 4 bucks in credit left so I might pick up one of those 9.99 ps4 games..... they are all new to me. 

Anybody know an easy way to browse video games on amazon?  Searching is fine but I get lost in their giant e-warehouse.

Eh I think that's the all digital xboneÖ. it's cheap because it's useless.  I saw it 140 somewhere today with a couple of games.... read too many mailers so I can't remember who was selling it. 

I thought about gt sport... the thing is I just spent 300 bucks building a racing cockpit for xbox one.   :(  That being said this might be my next major purchase:

https://shop.cronusmax.com/drivehub.html

I'm kind of waiting to see if they will update the device to work on the next generation of systems, but if they ever have a sale...

You know coke.com usually does a cap promotion around thanksgiving...Ö I hope we haven't missed it.

That's a good deal then.  The thing about my xbone is, I don't play it regularly, but when I do it's usually a month straight almost every day.  It's gamepad is comfortable so it's good for those huge time sink games like Assassin's Creed.

Target was doing $200 for Xbox 1 S 1TB with Star Wars for $200, but you got a $40 gift card plus 20% off coupon to use next week.  So thatís thatís basically system plus a game for $150 and Iíll get a controller at market in a few days.  $150 plus a game has been my entry price since the Sega Genesis for consoles.  Now imma grab a bunch of cheap codes off cd keys.

Let me know if Fallen Order is any good... I might have to pick that one up.  An extra controller is probably pointless as couch co-op is virtually non-existent on the xbox. 

I've got 5-10$ for Walmart, target and amazon left.... gonna se what cyber Monday puts up.

Sunset Overdrive looks and plays like it should have been released on the original xbox, but it's fun as hell and the story mode is kind of entertaining in a dated, late 90's / early 2000's way.  Pickup a Forza Horizon, it's light on the sim aspect so it's pretty fun. 

Gamestop finally got around to sending me my $25 gift card for my VR bundle after I emailed and complained.  Let's see what Cyber Monday brings.

Ryse is basically a really good looking (but kind of gimped) assassin's creed.  Same kind of "historical" story and similar combat/ stealth mechanics.... just no running around on rooftops.  I would wait on Rare Replay since, within a year, Microsoft will offer it to you for free.  I got my copy about 3 years ago for watching an E3 live stream... there have been a couple of opportunities to get it since then.  I never really got into it personally... it's some nes and n64 games you've probably already played, except not the iconic ones since they are co-owned by Nintendo.  They did a really good job with the remasters, but again, it's games you've probably already played.

So the $25 coupon credit for buying a psvr is a joke.  It's only for one item, so you can't pile up $25 worth of discount games.  Also it deducts that amount from your total before calculating shipping charges.... so even if you find a $35 game to warrant free shipping, it'll get deducted and you'll pay $6 shipping.  So the only way to truly get $25 from your $25 coupon is to use it on a $25+ game in store or use it on a $25+ online AND make sure you buy either a game that's expensive enough to still have a $35 total or add enough stuff to your cart to get it up to $35 after the deduction.

I had a Sears coupon that behaved like that, and my workaround was to add expedited shipping to the order, get the total, and then apply the coupon.  Then I only had to pay the expedited shipping up-charge, which was a buck or two in that case.

I ended up getting Mario Maker 2 as it was the only full retail game I could think of that I wanted.  I think it was around $37 which isn't that much of a savings considering Walmart has 10 bucks off all of their games all the time.  I had planned on using it to get Astro Bot and the Until Dawn VR sequel.  Oh well.  I'll scour Target and Walmart later to see if I can spend my credit left with them.  Probably going to get Until Dawn as you suggested. 

That was the goofiest coupon I've ever seen.  I was going to just get Astro Bot and eat the 5 bucks I couldn't spend, but the coupon wouldn't go through.  In addition to all the other stipulations, if your total was less than $25 the coupon wouldn't work.  They were making sure to wring some more cash out of you on another purchase. 

In other news damn target is on point this season.... ace combat 7 already came in.  I'm up in the sticks so anything other than amazon that comes in under 7 days is a Christmas miracle.

Nice.  The psvr bundle came in the other day but I can't count that one as a freebie since it was cash money.  I waited too long to pull the trigger on my remaining target and Walmart credit.... all the good games went off sale.  I think they usually do another one the Saturday before Christmas.

Turns out Amazon is a good source of big and tall work clothes if you know your brands and sizes.  I had a couple Chase Freedom Reward Amazon cards come in and turned $175 into 2 pairs of slacks, 4 shirts, and a belt.  Judging by my ZapCon experience, I think I'm the 3rd largest BYOAC member so that's most of you covered.
