Okay, I was searching for something, to compare prices, to make sure the game trade I was going to do was a good deal and I found the Buy.com site.

It states that if you sign up for the Google Checkout, you automatically get a $10 off coupon for your first purchase.

I figured I would post it up, if anyone was interested, or so people can give feedback if this is a legit deal.

If you click on the "what's this" above the Google Checkout square it opens a smaller window.

Here are the "Terms and Conditions"

Is this a good deal or is there something hidden I am not seeing?

I purchased a Christmas present from Toys-R-Us back in December and used the Google Checkout discount. It was legitimate, and worked just fine. When I paid through Google the total was discounted immediately, so no rebates to worry about...

Just my experience.

It's legit. I did the Christmas $20 off of $50 deal. Worked great; better than Paypal's rebate, which is also legit, but it takes awhile to get your rebate.

Saved a ton at holiday time. There was no limit on how many times you could use it then. But well worth it even if just for a new user.

Legit and well worth it. I use googlecheckout when i get the chance now.

I used this 10 dollar coupon on a dvd rw 16x external that was on sale at buy for 50 bucks. The coupon gave it to me for 40 and i got free shipping still.

It does work but watch your credit card statement. They double-charged me and when I contacted them, I was told it was a normal and just a quirk of the Google Checkout process and it wouldn't go through. Of course, it did. I had to have my credit card company reverse it (which was done without a problem).

Hopefully, that was a fluke since it was new but I did think it was unacceptable that they said it was 'normal' to see two charges. I mean, I understand Beta software but when you are charging credit cards, you'd best do better QA than that.
