Black Friday 2019: Memberships Are On Sale Now! Merch On Sale Soon!

Get your memberships at a discounted rate, now through Cyber Monday!

No Caption Provided

That's right: Until 12/2, you can extend your current membership (or get a new one!) for the low, low price of $35. If you missed our last Premium membership sale, there's a ton of new stuff to explore! Witness the full run of Burgle My Bananas! Find out if Jan Can Cook! Discover the Worst Songs Of The '80's!

This membership sale will last until Mon, December 2nd at midnight Pacific Time! You can find out more information here, or just head over here to sign up or click here to extend an existing membership.

Also note that we are having a store-wide merchandise sale starting on Monday morning! From Monday 11/25 through Monday 12/2 you'll be able to take an extra discount off of all orders! This discount will be applied automatically to all orders placed during that timeframe! We are hoping to have a new t-shirt available for pre-order as soon as this sale goes live, so watch out!

FREQUENTLY SHOUTED COMMENTS

πŸ’£Where's my discount code?! We remove store discount codes from the Yearly Premium membership during sale periods to allow us to offer this membership at a lower price!

πŸ’£I'll never give you bastards money! Note that we also now have a free trial system! If you start a free trial during the sale, you should get the sale price when your full membership kicks in, even if that happens after the sale is over.

πŸ’£I think I'm in love! Congrats! You should totally get your new soulmate a gift membership to Giant Bomb! Note that gift memberships are full-price during a sale, but you will get an extra few months of time if you buy during the sale. Unfortunately that's the way the new gift sub system works!

πŸ’£I renewed at full price! Most renewals during a sale week will go through at the full price with the store code. If you'd prefer to get the sale price, just go ahead and extend your membership during the sale and that'll be that! If you do renew at full price, just email us at support@giantbomb.com and don't use the store code; we can cancel it and refund the difference. It might take a couple of days to get back to you, though!

πŸ’£Why all the exclamation points?! I am in the pocket of BIG EXCLAMATION! but their checks haven't cleared yet! Please sign up for Premium so I remain gainfully employed or I might have to see what BIG EMOJI is paying!

πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£

If you have any questions about this sale, or have any issues taking advantage of it, please get in touch with us at support@giantbomb.com; that'll get you a much quicker response than any other method of reaching out. We get a high volume of support emails during sales but we'll get back to you ASAP! Thanks for subscribing; it really does help us run this little dumb train!

Hmm... What about buying coupons to use on merch or memberships?

Say $20 per coupon regularly, and $15 for the coupon during a sale, able to be spent on memberships at 3 coupons apiece? Just brainfarting here.

You can put yourself into the email field as the recipient, then just keep the email instructions and forward them along to your recipient! Or print it out in an envelope, etc.

Hmm I don't think we've ever looked into something like that. Unfortunately our merch store is run through Shopify and our Premium memberships run through another Payment processor so I don't think it's possible to have coupons that apply to both. The coupon system for merch is pretty kludgy as it is.

@rorie: do you know if we will be able to use the $15 discount code we get for standard yearly memberships during the discount sale for Merch?

I believe they should work fine. The overall discount is applied to the prices directly so the codes should still work!

I'm really hoping they expand upon that Worst Songs of the 80's list, that is a really RAD feature!

For anyone wondering if it's worth it. Definitely. I've been a premium member for the last 18 years.

Any idea what time the Merch sale will go live? Should I be watching somewhere to know when?
