More rooting through the past to see what might still be available. This list covers previously posted deals from 6/15 to 7/5.

5/27 - 6/14: Gravedigging - Previous Hot Deals That Still Exist [The Bones Of Dead Deals] 5/27-6/14

>>>>

We've all seen the same games pop up repeatedly in Hot Deals, but beyond that handful of games one thing I've noticed is how easy it is to forget a deal after the initial buying frenzy. Every so often I go through the posts from a month or two ago and check the prices on games I missed at the time and many times it turns out the deal still exists, or at least something very close to it.

Here's my list for 6/15 to 7/5. I omitted anything where the price varied by more than a few dollars from the original deal, but in some cases the price is actually lower now than when the game was originally posted.

It's just an oddly archaic business model compared to anything else you're used to on the Internet. Communication is spotty, shipping can seem high, processing times long...but prices are generally low. They don't have an online shop but use the BGG Marketplace instead.

I've tried ordering twice over the years and it wasn't worth the hassle, but a lot of other users swear by them.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

I have ordered from WDE six times. Never a problem. Sure, they aren't CSI, but when you are getting an item at 40% off CSI price, one can't be expecting Amazon Prime level service.

Wow, that's awful. I see them on the marketplace all the time and pass because they seemed so sketchy with their shipping especially. The owner's shitty attitude really seals the deal.

Best I can tell, you spin the roulette wheel of customer experience with them. There are accounts on both ends of the spectrum here.

I've had good experiences with WDE but the last time when I bought some Dixit promos they wanted to charge me $10 to ship those three cards. I told them the could ship it in a flat rate USPS box for half that or cancel my order. My order was cancelled and I'm fine with that.

I'm sure you and plenty of people are. But no matter the store there are always some percentage that have problems. What's important is how the store handles it (and to a lesser extent the amount of problems, which also seem above average from them). That guy does not inspire any trust whatsoever that my problem would be handled. There are way too many online stores that don't act like they're doing you a favor allowing you to buy from them to take any risk on a store whose policies I already considered sub-par.
