Membership Sale! Black Friday Sale!

There's a lot of stuff going on today! Start enjoying the holidays with Giant Bomb!

Membership Sale!

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 five days, you can extend your current membership for the low, low cost of $35. 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 Monday, November 27th!

If you're new to Premium or haven't subscribed in a while, there's a ton of new stuff to explore! Take on the boxing world with Million Dollar Abby! 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 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. 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 and I am going to be somewhat occupied during Thanksgiving, but I will try to get to you as soon as I can!

Black Friday Sale!

It's not Black Friday yet, but who wants to wait! Starting today and lasting until Monday night, all merchandise in our store is 20% off our usual prices. Splurge! Spend! Indulge your senses! There'll be no rain checks on these prices, so lock in your deals now. We also have a few new pieces of merchandise available, which should be available for shipping as soon as next week, as well as some pre-orders for some new items featuring a recent design. We'll have another post up about all this stuff shortly, though! Note that these new prices are not active just yet, so you'll want to hold off a little bit before placing your orders, but stay tuned for another story in a couple of hours with more details.

Just wait a bit until we get the prices sorted out! They're still full-price at the moment.

I mean...I guess I could extend my sub 'till May 2020. That's a good, futuristic sounding year.

I hope someone tries to get free shirts from Rorie again.

I've sent an email but my Sub just autorenewed like two hours ago, I'm unlikely to use the $15 due to my geographical location. it's a good deal for anyone pondering it.

Woot! Thank you so much. My renewal just lapsed the other month and I'm excited to re-up it again for the 7th year in a row!

@rorie Just to be clear, does this mean if you want to extend a memebership with PayPal then this will not be eligible for the Black Friday discount?

Whether it's on-site or via the store link, it should be the same $35 price point.

Maybe I'll extend. Gotta see if I can still even use the site once net neutrality hits.

I'd re-uped just before this sale started, so thanks to Rorie for kindly and incredibly quickly refunding me the coupon value.

Pet peeve: Credit card entry forms that do not allow you to copy and paste. You think it is less error prone for me to type my CC number than to copy and paste it? Basically fuck you for being so stupid and wasting my time for it! I don't let it stop me from buying what I want, but man I get irrationally angry about it.

@ironhammer: yeah, I resubbed today before realizing that they billed my credit card a couple days ago, so now i'm good until 2019 i guess. It's no big deal though, i would have resubbed next year anyway.
