That's
That's "deal" as in "savings" not "deal" as in "deal with it." That said... deal with it.

Hey, premium memberships for Giant Bomb and the Whiskey Media family of web-based Internet properties are now on sale. We have a limited number of them to offer for the XXXTREMELY low price of $35. I'm hoping that by using three X's in that above bit you'll equate this post with sex. They keep telling me that sex sells.

Cruise on over to http://www.giantbomb.com/sale to get a crack at one these astounding deals. This is a code that we email to you, making it totally perfect for a last-minute gift for others or, if you're the selfish type, you can use it yourself to either create a new membership or push the expiration date of an existing membership back a full 12 months.

As we say in this business, act now. Supplies are limited!

Totally worth $50 and I only paid 35 a month ago when they did this, probably the best purchase I've made in a year or 2

I find it pretty amusing that

"Dig Deeper into Roberta Williams"

appears on the side of the screen.

I already renewed my subscription with the $35 thanksgiving sale/deal, but part of me wants to put down $3500 on a hundred year subscription, so I can pass something meaningful on to my potential offspring, make my account a family heirloom or something.

Also, every non subscriber, go get one, cause it's totally an awesome deal. Random PC game is the best.

Tell me when you're bringing back the honesty thing, and I'll gladly support it.

Or you can just lure people in by splitting content and features. That's obviously cool too.

Looks like they limited it to 2000, assuming the countdown thing is real.

They could only print 2000 memberships on their internet printing press! Ones and zeros are expensive materials, man.

(Of course it's a joke.)

I was just now looking at renewing my membership, however I think I'll pay the extra 15 bucks and get a shirt. It's a pretty nice shirt I got last time. I'm wearing it now.

Just because it's not a physical thing doesn't mean it is a joke. They probably really did put a 2000 limit.

I kinda wish that the premium member videos would be free for all... pretty much all of that content is SO good (it really is) that everyone should be able to see it. 
 
But because it is not free, you should get the premium membership. ;)

@AlisterCat Guess I misread the email I got for it. No big! I'm not buying it for that anyway, I'm buyin for a good deal on something I wanted anyway.

(I actually already own a Tested cube-dude t-shirt that I happily paid full price for and wear as much as is hygienically possible.)

Edit: Actually I double checked the purchase e-mail and it says the user who redeems it will be get the coupon (since it's a canned email), so that's what tripped me up even though the page itself says you won't. Again, not like I care it doesn't have one since massive discount > coupon.

Sound effects were worth the purchase alone. Also, subscribing made me realize that I somehow have a Tested account. I'm almost 90% sure I never signed up for that site. Not that I mind having an account there - although its bugging me that my username does not start off with a capitalized "A" like it does on Giant Bomb.

There is a counter on the page counting down from 2000. I'd be surprised if it were a joke based on that.

I think that means that everyone who becomes subscribers with this has to go and watch the Phantasmagoria video from start to finish. No exceptions. No excuses.
