If everyone else already knew this and I was just really slow, I apologize.

If you go to Amazon's Gold Box 'Today's Deals' page linked at the top of their website, they have a section of the page called Quick Picks which shows stuff they think you'd be interested in based on your history, all with an additional discount coupon. I know Amazon doesn't always have the best price out there, but if you're not ordering enough to get free shipping elsewhere, it can be a viable option. So if most of your browsing on Amazon is for games, that's probably what they'll offer you deals on.

The fine print: You won't have access to the deals until you've made your first purchase from Amazon. They have different items offered to you each day. You must add them to your cart from that Today's Deals page to get the discount, and then buy them within one hour of putting them in your cart. You can only take one of the deals per day. I think that's most of it. They of course have all that info on their site.

A few examples of what they're offering me:

7 Wonders - $34.14
Dominion - $28.92
Citadels - $17.83
Catan - $31.92

All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance; the same description may be applied to the best, most elegant and both intellec

and aesthetically satisfying games. By being unknowable, by resulting from events which, at the sub-atomic level, cannot be fully predicted, the future remains malleable, and retains the possibility of change, the hope of coming to prevail; victory.

This should be in the deals forum.

That's what I thought at first, but the post of rules said it has to be about a specific item at a certain price. And this is about Amazon itself as opposed to a limited-time deal for some specific thing.

These are relatively normal online prices for all four of these items.

Also, this is the "Hot Deals" forum. I know the OP didn't post this message here originally, but since this isn't really a deal (just Amazon's random semi-personalized paltry discount generator)--let alone a hot one--it definitely shouldn't have been moved here.

I've never been to a forum where people were so particular about where a thread was supposed to go.

*Shakes head sadly*
I'm sorry, we're going to have to move that to the Complaints forum.

I believe this post belongs in the "Taking a joke too far" Forum.

To get it back on topic..

While the Quick Picks are usually about 5% off, make sure you check the price on the item listing before you add it to your cart from the deal page. Some times the quick picks are actually more expensive than if you were just to go to the item itself and buy it from there.

For example (and not game related, but still..) my quick picks today offer me some guitar picks for 3.84, while the actual price on the page is 2.99.

There are a lot of forums here. Keeping things well organized makes it far easier for people to find what they're looking for.
