  • Gamefly: Free Wii or 1 yr of rentals

    Gamefly has a deal right now where if you sign up 5 friends you can either get a Wii or 1 yr of free rentals. Everyone just has to remain a member for 1 month with the first month being $9. Oh and you have to be a new member too.

    Here is a link to sign up as my friend. I'll post again when I have 5 so the next person in line can get the deal :)

    I'm consulting with my CPA. This looks good to me. Have you been using Gamefly for a while? How's their shipping turnaround?

      Nope, haven't used them. This doesn't work if you were previously a member. I've got a game coming to me right now. I've read good things about their service. The problem all these services have is they can't tell you with any certainty when you will get a specific game. So if you have multiple systems you can't say "give me a game for system X now and sytem Y next". Kind of annoying in my case because I may want a portable game when I go on vacation.

      I used gameznflix for a while and wasn't too pleased with their turn-around. I figured for $10 I'd give gamefly a try and maybe get a free year out of the deal.

        Cool. Well, I think I'm going to sign up under you. Perhaps there will be lots of interest and I can get the next five referrals!

            I used to subscribe to GameFly and found their service quite good. It usually took 2 to 3 days for them to receive your returned game and ship out the next one. So you could wind up waiting almost 5 days before you got your next game. However, the fact that you could keep it as long as you want was very appealing to my son.

            The reason I am no longer using them is because after so many times, 3 I think, of having a game lost in transit, they cancel your account "until they can stabilize the distribution process". My son put the game in its mailer and sent it off but it never arrived. I physically watched him do it on several occasions including for one of the games that is missing. As a matter of fact, I still have a couple missing games and they cancelled my service well over 4 months ago.

            Other than that, it is a great way to rent games.

              Hmmm, I've had one DVD lost when I had Netflix, and one now that I'm using Blockbuster, and they just reshipped the movies with no problem. I can see how three games would be a bit different, though. I'm honestly surprised that more products shipped in this manner aren't swiped. The packaging is obvious, and there are just so many opportunities in the shipping process for jerks to steal them.

                I didn't mean to imply that Gamefly wouldn't ship another. Once you report it lost, they will send you another one.

                I agree. I don't think I ever lost any movies in transit with NetFlix or Blockbuster. For some reason it just seems to be the games.

                I subscribed to GottaPlay after Gamefly cancelled and their service was pretty decent but now I have two games that have gone missing so I did a preemptive strike and cancelled my account. Plus with GottaPlay, you have to fill out some Postal Affidavit and fax it to them plus turn it in to your local Post Office. Which reminds me, I have one to fill out.

                  Hmm, that's one thing I never experienced with Gameznflix. Maybe because they aren't as well known so people don't know they should swipe them? The reason I stopped using them was because there were items at the top of my queue for the entire time I was with them (over 6 mos) that were never shipped. And I guess now they don't ship PSP games due to increased shipping costs.

                    Got my first game already. That was pretty quick.
