US domestic shipping is free on Friday. Seems like the prices of board games has jumped a bit since the last time I ordered from them. Boardgames are only 8% off retail price.

I think that they may have raised them for tomorrow. They are normally a lot less than where they currently are. Even their clearance games aren't currently marked down. Not sure who this promotion is aimed at...

Edit: Thought about this for a sec. Might be a good option for sending a gift to your secret Santa recipient.

Any specific instructions or coupon code required for this? Is there any link to this deal on T&D?

Thanks,
Ishai

I have a friend that used to be a car salesman. Whenever his dealership would run one of those "Push it in! Drag it in! Tow it in! Your used car is worth at least $2000 towards the purchase of a new car!" promotions, the night before they would go out on the lot and raise the prices on every single vehicle by $2000 or more.

This reminds me of that.

T&T does have excellent customer service though, and you can occasionally find a hell of a deal with them.

I would encourage those who have a specific game(s) in mind, whether in or out of print, to check out T&T' s prices.

Their pricing system is strange and many games are higher than other OLGS, but one does find a good price now and then.

For instance, Snow Tails with a damaged box is currecntly $26.59. Just two weeks ago Time Agent was selling for $33 in shrink (this is long OOP and usually more than this for a punched copy).

I rarely ever use T&T but this deal has potential.

I've given up. Several games that I was interested in and were selling for significantly lower at T&T are now way too expensive. Finding a needle in a huge haystack of overpriced items is not my thing.

Yeah, normally I will put in a good word for the fine folks at T&T, but if the prices I'm seeing right now hold, then they are definitely cranking back up prices on a helluva lot of stuff in order to trumpet this Free Shipping Friday thing. Might want to skip this one, come back later.

Not to mention a lot of their stuff is still out-of-stock from that monster Black Friday sale they had.

Found a couple of things that were low but I could not see how free shipping worked. Right at the end of check-out it was still applying shipping so I did not order.

Yeah I haven't seen a single game within a few bucks of Amazon yet, so who cares about their free shipping.

I was trying to pick up a couple of minis (I figured spending ten bucks on some minis with no shipping sounded like an awesome deal)

Yep. They set the UPS Ground option to $0.00. Worked for me. Thanks for the heads up on Snow Tails. I've been thinking about that one for a while. Here's hoping the box isn't in too bad of shape.

FYI Snow Tails is $22 in Toys For Thought's bargain bin:

http://toysforthought.com/store/product/18292/SNOW-TAILS/

along with a bunch of other great games. Free shipping at $150, but even paying the $10ish for shipping you can end up with a great deal with a TFT order.

With a quick look through, just at things I've browsed recently, is that some prices are up nearer MSRP, and some aren't. I don't think I have to go very far out on a limb to say that they're probably hoping to clear out some excess stock and have kept those things low to encourage sales of those.

Picked up a used copy of the first printing of Here I Stand for $26.24. I like that price.

Good luck with that. I think I tried to buy that one last year.

May of their prices are high but they are pretty good for CCG and mini singles. They usually have a lot of preconstructed Magic decks for good prices. I just ordered Hogwarts: House Cup Challenge for $18.99 which was about $7 lower than CSI.

Well since there is never free shipping to Canada (despite costs being very close to shipping within USA) I can pass this sale up quite easily.

And people wonder why I think online shopping is more expensive than retail...
