AmazonLocal has a slightly better deal than LivingSocial right now if you are interested in getting a game from YoYo.com (unless you count getting a free LivingSocial coupon through referrals). Don't forget 5% rewards points if you use Amazon Visa.

AmazonLocal link

thread to LivingSocial deal with game list

Note that this stacks with YOYOAPRILSHIP for free shipping on $25.

Edit: DEAD as of 04/08/12.

I don't want to spend more money but really how can I not when this is the same as the other deal without cheating the system. Sweet thank you.

Maybe he means cheating the system by buying the other deal twice?

ETA: and I just bought one. I put off the other one since I didn't want to sign up for a new thing, but since I'm already an amazon visa customer, this was hard to resist.

In case anyone misses it on the front page, yoyo is showing free shipping at $20 for first time customers. Code YOYOSHIPNEW Appears to be dead now.

Yup buying the 20$ one twice I read the contract and went oh well at least I get one game for a good price. Now with this I get two. Shipped from amazon with 1 day shipping when I ordered.

Re: [US] AmazonLocal: $12 for $25 @ YoYo.com
After speaking with a CS rep at YoYo (24 hour CS FTW!), she credited me $5.74 to fix their snafu. Dominion: Prosperity was being advertised for $29.99 in the sales section, but showed up as $35.74 after clicking on it and in the cart. After the credit, AmazonLocal code, and free first time ship code(applied automatically BTW), I ended up paying an additional $4.99. So, my total for Prosperity was $16.99 with free 1-2 day shipping! Sweet! GG tip and thumbs on the way...

Thanks! Been thinking about picking up the fancy version of Puerto Rico for 70ish dollars, but when you can get the regular version for $17, it's really hard to pass up.

Just completed my order, had to find a filler item.
The AL $25 will stack with the $25 free shipping, but the $20 first order is either dead, or just doesn't work with the AL deal.
YOYOAPRILSHIP is on $25 PRE-TAX (just in case anyone was under other impressions).

So, if you want Castle Panic (which for me, after tax, was almost exactly $25) you will need to find a filler item for $2.01 or more (I might recommend the Duracell batteries, because who won't use a couple more batteries!).

Edit: Cancelled my order, does anyone have their referral code for 20% off? Then I may look into something that costs a little more...

My package arrived on Friday.

Forbidden Island and Zombie Dice both arrived in perfect shape, though the box didn't have much in the way of padding.

Thanks for the code! We have a couple birthday parties for kids next weekend, so I was able to order something for myself as well as kiddie presents all for the 20% off!
The site leaves plenty to be desired, though as far as getting prices correct. It kept applying 20% off to one item (from the Casa side), but not to the rest (which were all Yoyo). Remove the item, add it back, full discount until the final checkout screen where it got reset to one item!
However, I will say they've got some excellent customer service. Just called them up and the guy was able to handle everything and get my total down with full discounts and my AL code. So, props to Yoyo/etc customer service!

Pandemic: On the Brink is a good deal. I figured it's best to cash in on this order on April because of the lower free-shipping level ($25).

Here's a 20% off code if you guys wants to use it: DMK18297

I purchased this and used it to buy Dominion Cornucopia for $23.76 after it came back in stock.

Shipping was $4.95 and I looked for a filler item to bring my total to something between $25 and $28.71 to get the free shipping, but didn't see anything useful and decided to just pay for the shipping.

However when I went to checkout they would not apply the last $1.24 of my deal towards the shipping, and I would need to pay $the full 4.95 to ship it.

I decided this was BS so I went back to the fillers and added an Official Star Wars Storm Trooper wristband for $1.29. This brought my total to $25.05, so I needed to charge 5 cents to my credit card to complete the order (this card gives me 10 cents plus 1.1% every time I use it so I even made out there).

I received a shipping email pretty quickly, then received another one the next day. It turns out the 2 items were shipped separately from two different warehouses in different parts of Pennsylvania.

So their refusal to apply the Amazon Local credit towards shipping cost them the $3.66 I was willing to pay, plus the cost of the wristband and the cost to ship another box.

I wore the wristband to the first day of Mindgames last weekend even though it was digging into my skin, so any guilt I might have felt over this is completely gone.

Procrastination pays off again!

I've been dithering about what game(s) to get using my yoyo coupons, and at the last minute decided to check one last time to see if they had added Pandemic: On the Brink to their inventory, and they had! That's currently at the top of my list, so it's nice to get it at a big discount. They had it at $24.55.

Both that and Lost Cities: the Board Game were newly added since the start of the sale, so check back to see if what you're looking for is now there. (Still now Kingdom Builder though...)

If you want to take advantage of April's free shipping, hurry up and order!

Lost Cities The Board Game was a heck of a good deal with Yoyo certificate when it was $23.99 (based on 20% off an erroneously low $29.99 MSRP). With the certificate (plus a small filler to bring the total above $25), the game was about $12 with free shipping.
