Yeah, I got the same notification in an email from them. It's times like these when I wish all the jerks hadn't pissed off Steve so much when he was posting details about sales ahead of time. It was nice to look over the lists and plan things out. Now I don't even know when (beyond "October") a sale might hit. Still excited, though!

What saddened me was I placed a random order this morning, a couple of things came back in stock. I should have waited it wasn't anything too important.

Same, I just hope the items aren't part of the sale, I hate when that happens so close together.

Use a credit card with price matching

Yeah, I just read that in another thread. I did not know about this, will definitely look into it, thanks.

Or at least just a timeline of when the sale will be active. All they've said so far is "October." So it could be anywhere from 3 to 34 days from now. Haha.

Typically MM sales start on a Tuesday at 10 am EST.

However, last October's sale (their Bigger Than Black Friday Sale) started on Wednesday, October 19.

In my opinion, that was their last good sale. The Thanksgiving Sale was okay. Everything in 2017 so far has been pretty disappointing.

Wondering if it has to do with a customers wish list on their site. The email I got said to prepare your wish list. This along with the experiment they did within the last few weeks where people were seeing a discount on their wish list for a single day makes me wonder.

That would be too targeted of a sale and I don't think they have that capability. I think it's more of just a get stuff on your wishlist so you can easily see a price change. The last sale was just a test of price notifications. Everyone still had access to the sale prices

Really in a spot here. I have a birthday gift for a friend in my held orders. I'm close to the threshold. His birthday is mid-October. I could easily buy a game that just released and ship the order or hope the sale pops within the next couple days. I almost wish I wasn't "the first to know" - yup, it was me; I was the first.

Guess I'll give it a couple days and then - let 'er fly...sale be damned!

I know the feeling. A couple of things came back in stock, my delima is should I buy it now since it's in stock, or hold off and chance it'll go out of stock.

If you have any credit cards, it's a feature most credit cards will let you add on for a small fee
