I was just perusing their news feed and came across this:

"The "Tough Economy" Special Offer is Back!!
We've run these specials five times in the past few years, but we are STILL hearing from gamers who are out of work and we all know the economic environment for some is still pretty difficult. So, we are going to offer our tough economy special once again. Here are the details of the offer:
If you have lost your job since November 1, 2012 and remain unemployed, if you will provide verification of such status to Tony (a_curtis@sbcglobal.net) or the office folks by mail or phone or e-mail, we will send you TWO FREE IN-STOCK GAMES of your choice. Play them, Enjoy them, and know that we will keep this information private and wish you only the best for a quick recovery.

We hope you guys find this special helpful."

Like I said, GMT is amazing. Just wanted to put that out there to spread the word and support what they are doing.

Yeah, exactly the sort of company I want to support. Even if I can get it cheaper elsewhere, this makes me want to order from them.

Wonder how many games are distributed this way.

A while ago, someone asked for a link, the request for which then vanished. Anyway, here it is:

Link?

Here, I think: GMT "Tough Economy" Special

It's nearly at the bottom of that page. (I don't know if there is a way to mod the URL to jump right to it... I am no web guru. )

GMT was very thoughtful and generous with me last year when I was out of work. I very much appreciate their generosity and I gladly look to them first when looking at new games.

I've said it before, but GMT has the best customer service of any company I've dealt with (ok, it ties with two others in the Amazing category).

They have a loyal customer for life here.

I receive nothing but excellent customer service from the people at GMT. I get the best value shipping costs of any game company from GMT. I get terrific games from GMT. But best of all they are a company that have a social consciousness. The business sector in general could take a leaf out of their book. They put to shame the large "greed orientated" corporations which the business worlds holds up as shining examples of success. Paaaaaah! GMT puts them to shame.

Yep, there was a weekend in between that date and now, and they're swamped with orders from the customer appreciation sale. They only have a small office staff, and while I'm sure they probably added a few extra helpers for the sale it'll still take awhile.
