Thanks, I took advantage of this.

I don't understand the coupon concept. Clicking a checkbox saves me $6? Seems so trivial, why bother? Just discount it...

It is an attempt to defeat price-searching/price-matching software from rivals (namely, Walmart/Jet).

I've seen this "coupon" option pop up on a bunch of board games in my Amazon lists lately. While I obviously like the lowest price available for an item, it makes it impossible to just scan my wishlist and see pricing. I have to click into each item and do the math.

And RftG is definitely worth it at that price, awesome game!

I think Walmart will figure a way around it but what it really stops is the awesome price drop wars that are caused when a 3rd party Amazon seller undercuts Amazon. Before the coupon, RFTG was being sold by 3rd party sellers for the same $19.55 price. Now they are selling for the exact unadjusted price of $25.86. crycrycry
