Some of you might have remembered when yoyo.com launched that they had deals on Living Social and Amazon, well here is another one, that includes other sites.

http://local.amazon.com/northern-virginia/B00D475S8A?tag=art...

It does say in the fine print that Mayfair Games are exempt from this.

The fine print also says sales and close-outs are excluded. Otherwise things like Puerto Rico http://www.yoyo.com/p/rio-grande-games-puerto-rico-134768 would be super cheap. You could get two copies for around $29.

Actually, that isn't labeled "sale", so it might be valid on that. There are some which are discouted, and others which have Sale.

More important for those that have every purchased from YoYo during past deals:

Quote:
Voucher can be used for any of the 4 kids' sites on which customers have not previously made a purchase


I know from past experience that they cross reference EVERYTHING to confirm a new customer. Mailing address, credit card used, browser cookies, everything.

It is possible to get around this but it takes quite a lot of effort.

Has anyone ever gotten a code as an existing customer? I have only ordered from there once, but every deal I see is for new customers.

D'oh! Missed the most obvious fine print. I guess that counts me out, tho I'm sure there are plenty of people who weren't in for previous deals.

I emailed customer service because I was interested in possibly getting a couple items through a friend, and this is the response I got. Just in case anyone is considering buying a sale game.

Hello,

Thank you for your email. I would be more then happy to assist you with your inquiry. Unfortunate this deal through Amazon can not be combined with any sale items. So both the board game Puerto Rico and the Dominion card games are on sale, so they would not quality for the Amazon Local Deal.

Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our friendly Customer Care team. We're here to help you out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Thank you,
Julie
Customer Care Representative

Wow, well I guess maybe the information I received wasn't correct, then!

Hmmm... I just went through checkout, and Puerto Rico worked with the discount.

I did try games that had "Sale" attached to it, like Dixit, to see if the discount worked, and it didn't. So hopefully they don't screw me over.

So weird! I guess the customer service rep was wrong...or that it's somehow going through even though it isn't supposed to. I'll keep that in mind, then. Glad I saw your post!

Unfortunately, the only games I'm interested it are either on sale or Mayfair, both excluded from thee deal. Next, I thought maybe some Legos... nope, excluded.

I looked at puzzles, and holy crap, I came upon this:

http://www.yoyo.com/p/john-n-hansen-life-the-greatest-puzzle...

24,000 pieces! And a steal at $350 gulp. Unfortunately, this 12 foot puzzle would take over my game space and game time for 6 months to put together. I don't think I'm ready to make that sacrifice, but dang that's some serious puzzle!

Came late to the Dominion party but the base set has been popular so saw this as an opportunity to pick up a couple of expansions. Seaside and Prosperity for $41.01 (w/ free shipping).

Now I've got to start working on one of those travel cases...

Not to be completely daft here - but can someone make sure I understand this??

This is a local amazon deal - but anyone can use this (first time buyer to yoyo) - correct?

So I have to buy the coupon and I'm assuming you get a coupon code of some sort. Then I take that code and cross my fingers that the games I want will work with said code?

From previous posts I can assume that Puerto Rico will work and I was looking at either Power Grid or Castle Panic.
