Giant Bomb Premium Is On Sale Now!

You've got two weeks to lock in these low, low prices!

No Caption Provided

Money! Cash, greenbacks, dinero: whatever you call it, we all want more of it! That's why, for the next couple of weeks, Giant Bomb Premium is on sale for the low, low price of $35 for yearly subscriptions! At these prices, you're losing money if you don't buy!

That's right: Until 5/19, you can extend your current membership (or get a new one!) for three Hamiltons and a Lincoln, or whatever the equivalent would be in your local currency. (I assume three Founding Fathers and a President are worth at least two and a half Queen Elizabeths, but I'm not sure where the exchange rate is as of writing this.) You can find out more information here, or just head over here to sign up or click here to extend an existing membership.

This sale will last until Sunday, May 19th at midnight Pacific Time!

If you're new to Premium or haven't subscribed in a while, there's a ton of new stuff to explore! Watch Alex take on the Reapers in Mass Alex Season 2! Thrill to GTA Online hijinks with Giant Bomb East (coming soon!) Have a Playdate with some friends! Join us for UPF! Check out the Bombcast live stream!

FREQUENTLY SHOUTED COMMENTS

?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!

?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.

?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!

?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 me at support@giantbomb.com and don't use the store code; I can cancel it and refund you the difference. It might take me a day or two to get back to you, though!

?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!

????????

If you have any questions about this sale, or have any issues taking advantage of it, please get in touch with me 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 I'll get back to you ASAP! Thanks for subscribing; it really does help us run this little dumb train!

$35 USD is $47.05 CAD, so that's two Queens, one Laurier, a polar bear, and a beaver.

Guys, @rorie@jeff

I love the way you folks offer multiple sales per year. However as you might have noticed with the larger Steam sales, they often to extend just past the first of the month or begin just before the end of the month.

That technique is to get extra sales from people who rely on checks at the first of the month. Starting a sale on the 6th and ending it on the 19th isn't the most convenient time for a one to take place.

I hope you take this into consideration next time you plan a sale!

This scenario is exactly it for me! Funny. Well Im set until mid 2020, but if the sale was a week longer I would probably make it 2021.

Well you can't have it all.

Does anyone else find the graphic to be incredibly confusing? I thought it was saying "May 6th to the 5th, 2019."

@jasperkazai: Yeah, I only understood what it was supposed to mean after reading the whole article. I have to admit that the M-D-Y date often bamboozles me on the first try, but this one was especially tricky due to the odd notation.

@chrjz: I didn't get the visual, but definitely got the audio. I just assumed the photo didn't show because they were announcing my renewal info. I hope they bring it back, though. I did get the falling confetti.

Did you not get the sound either? Rip off!!! Better extend again.

I never took advantage of these sales before. Been a member since the beginning. I'm glad I finally did. That "You DID it!" screen is the best. I can't imagine a world without Giant Bomb. Some weeks, I watch more Giant Bomb than playing video games. Can't wait till E3! Some of my favorite content anywhere. Thanks again, guys.

This happened to me last year. I set a reminder to cancel before it auto-renewed.

I so wish there was a download for the "You did it" clip. Would be the best ring tone ever.

I probably watch at least 5 hours of Giant Bomb a week and play games about 30 minutes a week.

Secured until 2021. Man, how great would it be to become a premium member for the first time now...there'd be so much stuff to watch. I also wouldn't be able to just devour it all at once, since I don't have all the time in the world to spare these days. I could just watch old premium content until the end of 2019 and beyond...

Also great new trailer!
