Big Deal on the Internet: Amazon's Farewell to February Sale

Big Deal on the Internet: Amazon's Farewell to February Sale

image

"Free" games abound this week with Newegg offering over 10 titles for "free" after mail-in-rebate.

From now until March 1st, Newegg has a slew of PC games available for "free" after rebate. You get a $10 Newegg Prepaid Visa Card in exchange for dealing with the mail-in-rebate. Limit one per household per publisher, check out our full list of available games here (they're selling out fast so apologies in advance if you're seeing a sold out message).

New low for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 from NewEgg. It's odd that they're selling it through their eBay account, but at $29.99 with free shipping, which is cheapest ever by $10, we won't complain. Next best price online is Amazon for $39.99 but most retailers are still in the $50-$60 range.

Jack Black stars in Double Fine's Brutal Legend which was finally released for the PC today. Most download sites are still charging $19.99. Steam had a pre-order special for $14.99, but since the game released they are back up to full MSRP. Green Man Gaming has a $5 instant discount and a 20% off coupon that drop the price to $9.60.

Through Thursday, Amazon has a "Farewell to February" sale with discounts on ~800 PC games. On top of that there is a single-use 25% off coupon code for an even larger discount. While most games aren't at their lowest prices ever, there are plenty of titles cheaper than usual, and we've noted several below.

Not cheap enough

Why is there shipping

Damn there is nothing left

I really need to start using Green Man Gaming more. They had a sale going on a few months ago that came with a discount coupon. If I had actually bought a few things before that point and had saved up a few of bonus bucks, I could have gotten Guild Wars 2 for about $15.

Well, i'm in the UK so i guess i'm shit out of luck here. Unless Amazon.co.uk is doing something similar, cant find any mention of it on their website tho :(
