It's that time of year again! Well, one of those times of year, at any rate: another Giant Bomb Premium membership sale is upon us. For the next two weeks, you can extend your current membership for the low, low cost of $35, or if you're a first-time subscriber, you can also nab an introductory rate of $29.99. 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 September 8th

If you're new to Premium or haven't subscribed in a while, there's a ton of new stuff to explore! Thrill to the exploits of the gang's visits to Murder Island! Chill with the squad in Exquisite Corps! Avenge stellar theft with Steal My Sunshine! Have a Playdate with some friends! Join us for UPF!

Note: sale memberships do not come with the normal store discount code. That's what enables us to reduce the price! We do have Paypal available for new memberships! Unfortunately it cannot be used to extend memberships if you're already signed up with a credit card, though, due to the way our payment processor works. (If you want to shift your membership from a credit card to Paypal; email me at support at giantbomb.com and we'll work something out.)

Note that this is our first time running a sale after implementing our free trial system; we don't think there should be any issues but please let us know if you run into any! 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. But again, let us know if there are any issues.

Note that gift memberships are full-price during a sale, but you will get an extra few months of time when buying a yearly sub during sales. Unfortunately that's the way the new gift sub system works!

Also: 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 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!

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, so please have a little patience as I work my way through them, especially this first weekend!

There is apparently currently a bug where extending your subscription may knock your subscription into a free trial! We're working to fix this, but in the meantime, if this happens to you, please email me at support and I will try to quickly fix this for you. Sorry about that!
