As if ThinkGeek wasn’t the Tom Nook of nerdy online shopping already, today the web-based merchandise company announced a partnership with several gaming publishers’ official stores, including Bethesda, Eidos, Bioware, and Gearbox. The deal also includes the official web stores of Tomb Raider, Plants vs. Zombies, and Forza Motorsport.
What does this mean to you? Glad you asked!
From now until 11:59pm ET 9/29/14, all of these newly allied stores will accept the coupon code “TIMMY” for $10 off an order of $20 or more. The code can be used as many times as you want, at as many of the partnered sites as you’d like, so now may be a great time to get in some early holiday shopping. The only exceptions to the promotion are pre-sale items, deposit items, and Bethesda’s discounted hoodies.
This coupon only works at the partnered sites, not at ThinkGeek itself.
Obligatory Legal Crap
I am not an employee of ThinkGeek or any of their new affiliates. I’m just a poor blogger that lets them suck money out of me like some sort of financial vampire.
Have you had your eye on that customizable portal gun replica and wanted a companion cube cookie jar to go with it, but thought it was more expensive than the organs and combined incomes of everyone in [SUBJECT HOMETOWN HERE]? Always wanted a Vault 101 jacket with matching shoes, but never had enough caps to foot the bill? Maybe now is your chance, because the ever-popular nerd culture store ThinkGeek is holding a buy-one-get-one-50%-off sale specifically on gaming merchandise for the weekend.
By using the promo code “HIGHSCORE,” buyers can cut the price of one item in half, provided it’s of equal or lesser value than its partner. As I just learned from my own purchase a few minutes ago, this discount can be applied to more than one pair of items — although it’s important to keep in mind the more expensive items will always be full-price and the cheaper ones will always be the ones discounted. ThinkGeek may be generous, but they’re not stupid.
The sale ends 3/23/14 at 11:59 PM, allowing gamers three days to dig through their couch cushions and cash in their pop cans so they can finally snag those zero-suit Samus statues and World of Warcraft bathrobes they’ve been hankering for.
Obligatory Legal Crap
I am in no way affiliated with ThinkGeek.com other than the fact that they siphon a significant portion of my money, but that’s mostly due to problems with self-control on my part.
