I think the part that everyone is missing is the fact the developers who rely on the sales get a percentage of what is paid. There comes a point that the deals hurt the developer. The prices are incredibly reasonable. You can't go to a movie for the cost of the games. duh

Remember when the games cost 19.99 and there wasn't a new one everyday and no one complained?

The games were cheaper to produce back then too. I think we are darn lucky. Just my opinion...

And the sale price is still less than the club price of $13.99. Although I was hoping for a buy one get one freee kind of sale. Like I said , I still bought 6! That should help the developerslol

Well, I'm most happy to have purchased five CE's at 9.99 each. Quite a bargain. Had to stop myself at five...gotta save up for the next sale you know!

Try logging out and getting back in. Sometimes that works. Or try a different browser.

Big Fish is on Pacific Standard Time so you still have 3 hours 45 minutes left to take advantage of the sale. Sometimes a credit card company can be responsible for this message too, so if you are trying to use a credit card you might want to give the credit card company a call.

Have you tried using an alternate method of payment? That might work too.

Here is some additional advice from a Big Fish moderator in regards to the message you are getting:

Quote:
One of the things you could try before getting in touch with Customer Support is to add the payment method as a new method in your billing and shipping page.

Then choose this same payment method as the default payment and delete the old profile (even though the information is the same).

I usually find this unblocks things.


luck

Hi, Marian!

I just read the thread in the BFG forum and, considering the fact that the comments are mostly negative, I wouldn't be surprised if they are in the process of dreaming up something for members only.

Even though I didn't get 50% off what I would normally pay, I did pick up "Unfinished Tales: Illicit Love CE" for $9.99, so I saved $4.

I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if they work on a sale now for members only. And I hope you enjoy Unfinished Tales. thumbsup wave

I actually don't have a problem with this at all. We are getting cut pricing every day for being a member. I think they give us quite a bit for being members. How easily we forget the specials they do have for us.

The problem isn't so much that it was a 28.6% off sale instead of the 50% off sale that was advertised -- It's that non-members got a much better deal. If the sale was 28.6% off for members, it should have been 28.6% off for everyone.

28.6% off of 9.99 is $7.13.
28.6% off of 19.99 is $14.27.

That (or close to it -- e.g. $6.99 and $13.99) is what the price for non-members should have been.

Otherwise why stay a member when it's cheaper to keep a list of games you might like and wait until Big Fish has one of their 50% off sales.

I still agree with you Jenny100 but on the flip side I have discovered another advantage of being a member thanks to this other Halloween sale “Spooky” which is good from : The sale will begin on Tuesday, October 30th at 12:00am and end on Wednesday, October 31st at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)..

What I discovered was that I was able to not only buy these games at $3.05 CDN. but I also received a Punch for each game, since I bought 3 games at this price I received 3 Punches and I bought a CE game at the regular Club Member price which gave me another 3 Punches and therefore filing my Card which gives me a Free Game coupon, so all in all a very good deal which is not available to Non Club members.

But I would still like to see their advertisement change to: You could save UP TO 50% for argument sakes and of course I would not say NO to a further promotional discount for their Club members.
