So it beats my still active Gamers Club Unlocked discount, but there's no resale value. But wait! If you buy eShop cards from Raise.com, you can get them at 10% off. AND they often have codes for additional savings (like 7% extra off today)!
Now, it's more like: $100◊90%◊93% = $83.7 (-$5 eShop Credit)/2 games = $39.35 per game! 34.41666% off baby! With no sales tax, if you just happen to live in Multinomah, Oregon, making it more like 40% off of brand new, super-convenient-on-a-portable-system digital Nintendo games! Now we're talkin'!
Sure, they expire in a year, but I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem for irresponsible consumers like us.
I have reserved my vouchers for Super Mario Maker 2 and Animal Crossing. Both deserve to reside in my Switch. And they will find a spacious, comfortable home on my new $57 400GB Micro SD card, mwa-ha-ha-ha!
@J.K. Riki You don't understand, man. You don't know what it's like for us, man!
But wait! If you buy eShop cards from Raise.com, you can get them at 10% off.
What is Raise? Is this legit?!
I keep seeing this ad on Facebook for 15% off eShop (and pretty much every other) cards and it feels scammy but the company SEEMS legit. A part of me wants to just try it and if I get screwed well, it was worth the risk. Because the reward is me saving a shit ton of money.
Next time I see it pop up again I will try to get the details saved somewhere.
Dang it, Anand! Whatís with this raise.com nonsense? Thanks a bunch. Now Iíve done this voucher nonsense too. I havenít decided on the second game yet. I donít like digital games! I always expect to get physical versions of these digital games eventually.
Also, I only have 146 gb left on my 400 gb. Seems like not enough. I donít know how long itíll last. Only Hellblade is a gb hog at 18, most of the others are considerably more moderate.
That FB ad popped up again. Here is the link to their site. When you click on it there is no $70 card at 14.3% off but there are some $35 cards for 13% off at the moment. I think the deals change a lot since it appears they are just the middle man for people selling gift cards, and the sellers set the price.
There is also a promo code (FACEBOOK) that supposedly stacks but I'm not sure what all it stacks with.
What do you think? Legit or scam? The Facebook comments seem positive but who knows. SHOULD I TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM?!
Well, I tried the xenia site as well. Got $120 for $95. Used a $10 off first time purchase (minimum $100 order, promo code SUNSHINE). which I failed to take advantage of on raise.com, like a dummy. Once I get and redeem the codes, I'll feel better. I doubt I'll use these sites often, but occasionally, as the deals make sense.
I got a little scared because my email had some message about redeeming Wii shop codes and I was like wait, did I somehow buy the wrong thing? But nah, it worked.
I feel like this is a game changer. There are gift cards for all kinds of stuff on this site! Why pay full price for anything ever again?! Especially with the Gamer's Club Unlocked thing ending soon I might switch over to digital for AAA games too! Maybe?!
Mind you, there are still some good retail deals ON OCCASION, but it seems like nowadays good retail deals are rare.
This isn't a deal for any of YOU (at least, probably not right now) but I got my Best Buy Gamer's Club 25% off a single game because my subscription is ending thing and I had no idea it STACKED on top of the 20% I already get from the subscription?!
I got Xenoblade 2 for like 35 bucks!
A nice end to a great program. Not sure where I will go for deals now. Maybe just rely on those 15% off eShop / PSN / etc. cards?!
It kind of feels like the days of awesome video game deals on consoles are over though. Cheapassgamer rarely has anything all that spectacular nowadays.
