Found this deal on slickdeals and thought I'd share. It's only a good deal if you want to buy two copies of the games they carry and manage to get to the $75 free shipping threshold. They do have some pretty neat non-board game items but only a few board games. The really expensive items like Lego Mindstorms seem very much a hot deal. I listed a few board games below that i found. Remember to use the coupon codes during the checkout. You'll have to put an address before entering the code.

"Buy Two Identical Priced Items for 50% off when you enter coupon codes BENS50OFF and VENTNOR at checkout. Shipping is free on orders greater than $75, otherwise it starts at $5."

Firefly: The Board Game 49.99
Game of Thrones 2nd edition 59.99
Bioshock Infinite 69.99
Batman: Gotham City Strategy Game 39.99
Star Trek Attack Wing 29.99

Re: thinkgeek.com: 50% off 2 identically priced items and free shipping on $75
Thanks for posting Kenny but you need to change the title and description.

It's not actually 50% off BOTH games but rather "Buy One, Get One 50% off" which is functionally 25% off.

Unfortunately that means none of these games will get down to daily MM/CSI prices with this.

Also it doesn't have to be two identical items. It's a sitewide promotion, and you get 50% off the the lower priced of the two. Of course it's optimal to keep the two items priced as closely as possible for maximum discount.


My apologies was only entering the first promo code and not the second. modest

Works for me, but only when adding 2 identically priced items without other items. For example, I added two Firefly games and it took $25 off each, so it was $50 for two instead of $100.

Re: thinkgeek.com: 50% off 2 identically priced items and free shipping on $75
So to actually get free shipping with Firefly and the 50% off you'd have to buy 4 copies. As soon as you add another game only the most inexpensive items get the discount.

Even with shipping it's a few bucks ($3) off daily FLGS pricing, but that's just not tempting enough to buy two especially with the deluge of deals about to happen with the holidays.

Now for anyone that wants something from ThinkGeek with an MSRP over $75, this will be a very sweet deal.

Haven't ordered yet, trying to find a way to get free shipping, but don't really want to order 4. It does work if there are different items, but they are identical prices as long as you have at least 2 of each. Best deal I think so far is to get 6 Star Trek Attack Wing, which comes to $15 each since it is on sale for $30. That's $90 + tax.

Good call! One of the few games where 2 or even 3 copies is a great thing to have.

Edit: Just ordered myself. Going to keep 3 and sell/trade/gift the others.

Thanks Melissa, well spotted!

Wait, I have 2 copies of the Game Of Thrones board game in my cart for 89.99 with free shipping, is that not the best price?

BENS50OFF is coming up as an invalid code for me. Is it only for new customers, or did they nix that one?

I'm getting a message that says only one promotional code per order.

It said that for me too, but then takes it off anyways.

Not for me for some reason and all the items are the exact same price.

Even tried opening a new account and it says the BEN coupon is invalid, so maybe it's just me.

Does it say:

Special! Sitewide Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off!: -$30.00

in orange underneath your second item?

I have 2 $50 items and entering both coupons is only taking off $25....with an invalid message for the Ben coupon.

Apparently I'm not the only one Ben isn't working for according to Slickdeals.

Thanks for the heads up. Was starting to get excited about Attack Wing then I noticed it was Wiz Kids and this: http://superflycircus.blogspot.com/2013/10/star-trek-attack-...

The old Enterprise looks painful.

I think the bens50off deal is over. It worked last night but I didn't order yet and I went in this morning and now it's saying invalid.

No, free shipping was only if you ordered $75 of items or more, not a coupon. The two coupons were originally combining to give you 50% off your ENTIRE order until about 8/9 AM this morning, as reported on SlickDeals. After that point the BEN coupon was nixed by ThinkGeek. I don't blame them as folks were buying some insanely high priced items for 50% off (swords, replicas, and all sorts of high-end items). I wonder if they'll honor the sales for the double-coupon discounts.

Check out the first posts in this list for further clarification.

I hope not. I got a sonic screwdriver remote and 7 pack doctor who t-shirt collection for me, a chewbacca robe for my dad, two wand remote controls as gifts and another 7 pack geeky tshirt as another gift.

And that review still gave it a 4.5 out of 5 stars in the end!

While I wouldn't complain about having even cooler minis, I'm not any less excited about getting the game which currently has an average rating of 8.33 here on BGG in spite of having minis that are nothing special.
