I have no affiliation with this seller, and have not ordered from them. (Already ordered from a different source).

I was worried about the site at first, but I do remember checking this site out a while ago when I was researching HotS, with the 'Free Claymore' thing, so it has been around for a few weeks.

Hmmm. Click the buy button and it shows up as 49.99 in your shopping cart.


That IS dubious.

The site was mentioned on consimworld. You're right, though. It comes up as $49.99 in your cart. I'm thinking that there may have been a $20 discount for using Google checkout (that may not apply anymore?).

Deal, or no deal? gulp

Tempted to sign up with Google to see...

I signed up, and in the cart, it's still $49.99. Bah!

The $42.99 price tag was turning me off. So I bought Nexus Ops instead (since I needed something light.) $29.99, you tempt me... except you seem a hoax! Or they screwed up. Sending them a mail.

Went to the Google Checkout site to see if they were listed (not) ---then ran it through whois.net to see who runs the website--this is what I found---with the Registrant being Adam Dalgliesh---a designer for Columbia Games (if it is the same Adam Dalgliesh):

Following the trail further--i found that the registrant seems to be tied to Columbia Games--as his e-mail address is linked there. I sent a Geek Mail to him---perhaps a regular e-mail may be helpful as well to clarify the issues of the website and the cost issue.

perhaps they're confused - with google checkout, you can get $20 off a $50 order, but $49.99 isn't quite $50 and it doesn't apply the discount. They're probably advertising the price after the google checkout discount.

That's my guess, too---that since its not 50 dollars, the discount isn't kicking in...I sent him an e-mail with just such a query.

Mystery Solved:

Got this e-mail back from Grant--

"Yes its us. Its still a beta site with a planned launch in just a
few days... The $20 off deal is thanks to google but I do realize I
have to raise the price to $50 to make it work. Please go ahead and
tell the folks on BGG to look back at the site in a couple of days.

grant"

So have much is shipping? Which state is tax assessed?

Ok raised to $50.00 so should be $30.00
went all the way through and it didn't show shipping so I'll assume it's free shipping for now.

$49.99


Tax (NV) : $0.00

Total: $49.99

guess I'll try again in a couple days and hope that $20 discount till kick in. In other words he change it from $49.99 to $50.00 on the frontpage but still hasn't changed the shopping cart from $49.99 to $50.00.

The web page now shows $30, but when I go into Google Checkout, it still rings up at $49.99. Doesn't charge any shipping, though.

If anyone notices it roll over to the correct price, please post! $30 with free shipping is an amazing deal for this classic.

If it is $30 with free shipping, I might have to break down and buy it despite Battlelore and Tide of Iron looking like upcoming purchases...

I just look at google checkout but dont see any 20$ off deal. My guess is they just change to 10$ off of 30$ purchase. cry

It's not working for me. It shows the game's price as $50 now, but I don't think they tested it. When I try to checkout the Google $20 discount doesn't show up like when you try to check out at Buy.com etc. From what I can see the purchase has to be over $50. So that may be the issue. I sent them some email and suggested once they get it fixed that they post here. I have a feeling there are a lot of people here who would love to buy HOTS for $30.

The amount now comes up as $50.00 in checkout.

However...

The Google deal is now only $10 off purchases of $30 or more from participating stores. No idea whether Columbia is "participating" or not. $40 shipped is still tempting, but $30 was a no-brainer.

I'll just add - that if you can get HoTS at $30 - that is awesome. It is a phenomenal blockgame.

49.99 with free shipping worldwide---maybe not bad for overseas buyers.

Grant must have had problems with the Google checkout $20 off of $50 because its not what they had originally intended. Not such a deal now, unfortunately. I was going to grab it if it was at 30 dollars.
