I remember it used to be Newegg but even without the discounts. The tax free and free shipping gets me. I haven't bought anything from Newegg since my Canon EOS 5D Mark II on Black Friday last year (They beat BH and Amazon by 200 USD even with tax included).

Amazon is only showing up like 5 PC games for sale and they're nothing really exciting.

Jogurt attacks! Inflicts 1 point of damage on the Goblin. Goblin is defeated! Jogurt gains experience.
...it appears that Jogurt's level has increased to 1.

Summer and x-mas 2011 amazon had some great sales, and their daily / weekly ones can be pretty serious too. And they're doing it all without their own game manager client as well (*coughOrigin*cough).

+1 for amazon

I think he meant to say Amazon is really competing against Newegg, since that's what he talks about in his post

I love amazon, been using it all the time, especially with their free amazon prime trial for university students. It's a life saver, bought meager things like pencils from amazon so i didnt have to get my butt to walmart

Of course they're competing with other retailers...

Does that amaze you or something ?

Digging up my old .edu email account and getting a free year of Amazon Prime was the best thing that's ever happened to me.
