Toys for Thought has a 10% off coupon out that is valid on everything in their games department, including the legendary bargain section.
There are some particularly sweet deals on a whole bunch of Fantasy Flight games.
Their website is something of an eyesore, but it's worth digging through to find the deals. A lot of items show on the site but are actually out of stock, which is frustrating but resolvable by using the advanced search feature.

Coupon code is 'games10'. Coupon is valid through May 1st.

Protip: Click advanced search (lower left) select games and subcategory bargains and check "In stock". There are some good deals in there periodically, and 10% off is pretty good.

Constantinopolis for $15 (minus 10%) is tempting, but $10.50 shipping kills the deal for me.

Yeah, their shipping is a little high, but on the bright side it is typically flat-rate up to the $150 free shipping threshold. Buy a few games and the shipping rate is mitigated to something much more reasonable.

black gold is a steal at $18.99 and puerto rico is $24.99, minus the 10% discount...

shipping to me in KS rocks in at ~$13, though. too bad i'm on budget lockdown, or i'd be rockin those games like mackelmore rocks his onesie with the socks.

Better break that mouse quickly, because it *is* in stock.

"Availability: This item is out of stock, we will contact you as soon as it becomes available"

That would've been a pretty sweet grab though.

$13 shipping definitely kills it for me. An $18 copy of Giants was enough for me to add it to my shopping cart, but $30 before the coupon puts that deal about on par with any other online store, so I can wait.

What a steal for Tribune at $14.40. This is one of the best worker placement games I've ever played. Highly recommend.

If you like games with lots of theme, Android and Betrayal at House on the Hill are both a steal for $23 and $20, respectively, before shipping and before coupon.

Giants is an amazing deal considering how few of the online retailers actually have it in stock, and those that do want $40+ for it before shipping. Even with shipping as high as it is, it is a steal.

Anybody want to split a $150 order to Middle Tennessee? I have several I'd like but I can't justify the total price tag.

I'm passing this time, but there are certainly some great deals to be had here. Notable are At the Gates of Loyang for $22.50 and the Ticket to Ride Asia Map for $15.30 (both after 10% discount). Even with shipping those prices are still pretty good.

well, just got an email from Mike at Toysforthought saying they they had a 'significant glitch' in their system, and were actually out of stock on:
-libertalia
-la strada
-jaipur

He said he's still ship the rest for free, which was nice I guess. Still dissappointed, oh well.

In other news, looks like they no longer have their bargain section? Kinda revamped games section with weird sub categories...

Interesting, none of the other categories show any of the bargain games. Wonder what they've done with them. Seems unlikely they sold all of them.

I got the same email accept they said the issue was with the following:

AT THE GATES OF LOYANG
BETRAYAL AT HOUSE ON THE HILL
TRIBUNE

If it was just a glitch that showed out of stock items falsely, then why were they able to send you a copy of Tribune, but not me. It sounds to me like they don't have an accurate inventory system and they weren't very truthful in their email.

Is it a bait and switch? Discount some hot games made them look like a deal to move the lesser titles?

Bait and switch means advertising something, running out of it, and then substituting an inferior product for it. Nothing is being substituted, so it's not bait and switch. It's just an honest mistake.

Based on this definition I can see how this could be considered bait and switch.

But I do believe this is an honest mistake. I've bought from them several times without issue.

yeah I mean he gave me the opportunity to decline which I didn't, and he was nice about it. Yeah just a case of mom and pop shop with completely outdated inventory system. They need to redo their entire website if you ask me.

I agree that this is not a bait and switch, because he is giving me the option of returning the items. What I don't understand is why I don't have the option of just waiting for the items to come back in stock. Here is what he wrote:

Thank you for your order. Unfortunately there was a significant glitch in our ordering system that was allowing shoppers to purchase out of stock games. As such, the following games from your order are out of stock and will not be coming back in at the sale prices:

At the Gates of Loyang
Betrayal at House on the Hill
Tribune


The above message says that they will be getting the items back in stock, but they are not going to honor the price they sold it to me for. Even though this was a "glitch", it wasn't my fault and they did charge my credit card, so I think they should honor their transaction as soon as possible. Good customer service to me would dictate that I have the option of waiting for my items or canceling them if I didn't want to wait.
