No matter how much I keep an eye on the Hot Deals forum, I always seem to be too late to the party! Everything I'm interested in is OOS. soblue

Thanks! I saved $33.80!

Well, sort of... I tacked on another $67 worth of games to qualify for free shipping.

Thanks,
Damon

Not the case with all the sales, but it applies for me on this one. Dammit!

I loaded the site as soon as I got the email. I filled a nice cart, but didn't check out in time to grab Cities and Knights (not sure if Seafarers was even in stock when sale began). I grabbed Traders & Barbarians, the Rivals for Catan + 2 expansions, all 5-6 extensions except base game, and the plushes.

I also grabbed Agricola to go with my Goodies order from Cardhaus (I was going to hold off on the base game, but I broke down).

I really hope Seafarers, Cities & Knights, and base game extension come back in stock before the sale is over.

I'm not sure why they would rush to get more stock when they are probably selling at/below cost.


1) 50% off is not below cost.

2) Ask and ye shall receive:

I agree. By the time I hit their website, all the Mayfair games I'd have bought were OOS. Ah well. I'll just have to check the hot deals forum even MORE OFTEN.

While 2 is correct, I don't think 1 is. Remember, it's not 50% off MSRP, it's 50% off their existing prices. So India Rails for example, is $38 MSRP, $30.40 MM price and $15.20 after the coupon. Does MM really get the games for more than 60% off MSRP? I don't believe their discount is that high.

They're not selling below their cost. (based on actual information, not conjecture)

Prices will go right back up to Mayfair's usual price fixed levels once this inventory is gone.

There are a number of ways that a shop can occasionally acquire inventory below usual wholesale prices. This is one such instance.

Just set up a subscription for the forum. As long as you're connected to email you'll be notified as each post goes up. (or at least close to it since BGG doesn't do truly instant notifications for forum subs unfortunately)

Banging deal. Details of what I bought (I'm not terribly picky) coming soon. My wife states "you sound like you're in a war" when I was placing my order. I reply "I know. I am". I think I got a good deal.

I bought the games left over, but I am very happy to try them out.

Anno 1503
Clash of Wills: Shiloh
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Sutter's Mill
Test of Fire Bull Run 1861 (I thought there were plastic soldiers)
The Rivals for Catan - Age of Enlightenment Expansion - Preorder
Theophrastus
Settlers of the Stone Age

116.80

I'm very happy with these for that kind of money. I already have a lot of great games. Here's a few others to try out someday. Thanks MM. I always knew you were the best.

I must have done something wrong. I added it to my cart, entered the code, and nothing changed. I'll try again.

EDIT: Still $30.40. Is there some secret to getting it to work?

Just happened to check my e-mail at work today and saw this sale so I quickly went to the site and picked up Nuns on the Run. A few minutes later I saw it was out of stock so I must have grabbed one of the last ones. And I just got home and got an e-mail that it shipped. Now that is fast service!

Look at your final total at the bottom of the page. It doesn't show up in cart.

After you apply the coupon, scroll down.

Are you looking at the game price, or down below? It told me how much it took off close to the shipping cost, but never changed the listed price for the games I bought.

If this is too obvious, sorry. It fooled me for a bit when I bought.

Thanks all. I see it now. The programmer who decided it should work that way should be shot!

Wow, thank you all for being so damn efficient in buying up stock!!! It really helps when nothing that you would consider purchasing is available by the time you get out of doing your civic duty and can get to a real PC to check out all the sales.

My resolution is still safe!!!!

I'm too busy working where game sites (like BGG) are filtered out.

I'm not even going to bother to check Miniature Market's website. I'm guessing they've been picked over clean.

I saw this about 2.5 hours after it was posted and it was picked clean by then

I saw it maybe 20 minutes after it was posted and it was already pretty clear.

Geeks work fast! In my experience, when someone combines the words "Automobile" and "sale" I'm guaranteed to not get there in time.
