Thanks for the heads up!

Just a small tip I've learned about sales and spending:
On my wishlist on Amazon, I notate the date and current price in the comments. Therefore when "sales" occur, I can see the markup and how much they say it's on "sale" for. About 50% of the time, Amazon increases the price, thus the "sale" price is really what it was before the sale. Good marketing tactic.

Also there are external Chrome extensions to track pricing too.

I dunno. I was pretty happy with my haul last year whistle

$25.96 Riff Raff
$12.99 Between Two Cities
$9.82 Suburbia Inc
$8.52 Animals On Board
$22.29 Terraforming Mars
$5.44 Notre Dame: 10th Anniversary Ed.
$0.00! New York 1901
$0.00! Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game: The Force Awakens

What are the chances we'll see another discount glitch this year?

Yah, last year, they (accidentally?) mispriced a lot of items at the beginning. They quickly upped the prices but, to my surprise, honored the earlier orders.

I missed out on the mistakesangry

Last year there was briefly an error that stacked two percentage off discounts (I believe it was 40% and 25%). Amazon decided not to cancel all the orders, but recently raised the price on Prime subscriptions ... NO ONE GETS ONE OVER ON JEFF BEZOS!!!!!!!!!

According to the “hot deals” rules, we are not allowed to post games listed as upcoming Prime Day deals because “hot deals” posts require a price (which is not available until the moment each goes on sale). Does that mean we should post/discuss all the “upcomings” in this forum?

I hope not. I look at the forum for deals and thought this was fine over there. I would love heads up like this even if there isn't a specific price.
