Hey, I'm going to be giving out some codes to PAX attendees, but I figured I'd also send some along for the forum users as well. If you want to use them, these can all be redeemed at store.giantbomb.com! I'll be updating this post with more codes as we give them out. These are first-come first serve, but there are plenty of activations for the premium memberships if you know anyone who's on the fence about that!

Also might want to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, as I forgot to bring my laptop charger and it might be easier to just send them all over there when this thing dies.

$10 off any store purchase: 97JKK
$5 off any store purchase: QQR7B
$15 off Yearly Paypal No-Shirt membership (essentially the sale price): YA85PZ
$15 off Yearly Paypal No-Shirt membership: T7RJ1VW

Note that with the Paypal memberships, it's going to take me until early next week to actually hook you up via Paypal. Sorry for the inconvenience! I also won't be around in the forums to answer questions very much, but I will be checking my twitter when I can actually get cell/wifi service.

More codes:

$15 off yearly no-shirt membership: 6MVJB, QFA5U, 5KARZ, 6RYWK, Y95XE. These all have multiple uses.

/$5 off many purchase at store: VJURK

$10 off any purchase: 88EZV

Just again, please keep in mind that it will take me a few days after Pax to hook up these memberships or extensions, as they all have to be done manually. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Where in the process of buying a t-shirt should I input a code? At 'special instructions'?

Not sure as well...went same route, I guess it's something they do manually on the back end? Current one expires in Dec with recurring charge setup otherwise. hmmm. Well hopefully they just match it on the email address you specify.

Wondering about the same thing, can't see a field for that

input is during payment option..past email/address

$10 off any store purchase: 97JKK Dead

$5 off any store purchase: QQR7B Just used it for a shirt.

$15 off Yearly Paypal No-Shirt membership (essentially the sale price): YA85PZ

Just used to extend membership (hopefully)

Code input needs to be better explained. The way it's laid out makes it seems like you're only able to just pay and nothing more.

#17 Edited by bawalo (107 posts) -

Yeah, even though the option to jump to paypal is there straight up, you need to 'continue' your order and the field will be there on the second page.

Edit: Just ordered a full year! See you later silver medal suckers!

I bought the yearly membership, but the email contains no code and my time hasn't been extended. Am I supposed to do something?

Oh shit, I think it's cause I used paypal right? it says you guys update manually when paypal is used. I guess I'll wait and see.

Dunno seems pretty straight forward.

Go to item page you want, hit add to cart.

Thrown to cart page to verify items, hit checkout.

Sent to shipping/billing page, hit continue.

Finalize on payment page, input method/fancy codes.

There is about a half dozen variations on the shopping theme various checkout sites use. Pretty stark bare so you dont have to go hunting for small print anywhere.

Super happy that I can finally renew my subscription, but have to agree, the code input field should probably be earlier.

How long will it take for the change to go live? I didn't use PayPal so it should be fairly quick?

Hopefully we may get some new update on the word about store revamps, new offerings (new shirts/sizes, possible buttons/stickers, etc), and the RD donation shirt during the PAX panel. Been preeeetty quiet for awhile now.

On the billing page, where it says 'submit', it really is not clear as to what it means by that. On a lot of sites, the submit would submit the payment. Badly worded IMO.

If my current sub expires in December, will purchasing a new one simply extend it on from that date?

Paypal memberships require me to manually hook them up. I'll do that as soon as I get back home on Monday. Sorry for the wait!

And yes if you already have a membership this will extend it for a year.

Is it weird that there's an option to pay with credit card when it's specifically a PayPal membership? I would rather not use PayPal if I have the option.

I think it's weirder that the only option to even buy a membership A) has a store icon showing a white GB t-shirt, and to newer users the connection that you get a shirt when you sign up may not be clear and B) describes it as "Paypal - GB Yearly Membership", and there is no other option if you don't want to use PayPal, but then it turns out in the checkout process you can just opt to not click the PayPal link.

@rorie: Hey, you guys should start taking the store a little more seriously. Plenty of people here, myself included, would be happy to buy some Giant Bomb merch. It's literally just money left on the table right now. We want to buy cool stuff, support the site and wear the Giant Bomb logo around; you guys could make more money.

I went to this death metal show called Summer Slaughter on a whim about a month ago with a couple friends who are really into that kind of thing and I spotted a guy wearing the wipEout-style Giant Bomb membership shirt, so I went over and said hey. He seemed maybe a little weirded out by it but whatever. It was cool to see a Giant Bomb fan wearing our colors out in the wild, and I'd like to see that more.

Right now, the stuff in the store has been around for years, the same designs. Put all that stuff on sale and clear it all out, then get some CNET lawyers to handle the legal end to host a community t-shirt contest and print the best ones. Make some Giant Bomb posters already; you guys have had so much incredible art done for you that it's really a shame that I can't just buy a print of any of it. Etc.

@rorie: I think I fucked up. I used my gmail address which is linked to my GB membership but not the email I use for paypal. I just thought they would email me a code or something to use on the billing page.

Ok, I'm sorry, I'm just a bit confused. I purchased a yearly membership using my credit card, not paypal. How do I redeem it on my GB account?

@fattony12000: It's for the paypal membership option on http://store.giantbomb.com, not the subscription options in the billing site.

Ended up reupping my membership anyways, might as well do it now before the next sale.

@fattony12000: Checkout and then enter your email address and the other stuff. On the next screen you should see a coupon field.
