I figured that many of you would get this email but wanted to share it nevertheless, and there may be people who don't receive the email at all so it seemed worth posting about for that reason too. wave

It sounds good to me, Mad. It also fixes some things that people complained about; for example, people not liking the fact that you could not use two free punch card game codes to purchase a Collector's Edition. This will now be a nonissue since everything will be based on points.

I agree this seems fair. Be nice if they had a hard date set for switch over though. Was there anywhere that said whether the points you accumulate would expire (similar to how coupon codes expire in 2 months)?

I don't see the answer to that question, lakerz. Hopefully we will get more information pretty soon. I will be sure to post here when we do.

Be sure to check your spam folder, too. But no worries if you don't get the email as the information will be available on the website.

Hi, Marian!

Thanks for the link. I received the email a couple of weeks ago, but there were no details. I hope the new points system means that we can now use 699 points to purchase a CE during BF's 65% off sales. When we completed those surveys a couple of years ago, I suggested it would be nice if we could use 1 Game Club Credit to purchase a CE that was on sale for $6.99 in the 65% off sales, but nothing changed. One thing i didn't see clarified was expiry dates. Game Club Credits never expire but Punch Card Coupons are only valid for 2 months. Since the two are now combined, I hope that doesn't mean there will be an expiry date on the points.

Susan

Susan, it is my understanding that we will be able to use our points on items that are already discounted. We will have to wait and see what they plan on doing as far as expiration dates. It will be very interesting to learn more about this.

Hi, Marian!

If I'm reading the email correctly, whenever BG has a 65% off sale, we'll be able to use what used to be one Game Club Credit (or 699 points). Since a discount code must be keyed in to get the 65% off, I'm assuming that 699 points will automatically be deducted from our account and the game will be free. Is that how you read it as well? Unless there are 2 points categories (one for what used to be Game Club credits and one for what used to be punch card coupons), the punch card coupons will no longer expire. I have lost the odd punch card coupon because I completely forgot about it, so now it won't matter anymore lol ! I'm sure if I had contacted BG they would have replaced it, but it was my fault the coupons expired and they have been more than generous if I experienced any glitches, so I didn't.

Susan

I am not sure, of course, until the program actually kicks in, but that is the way I am understanding it too, Susan. It will be interesting to see how it all works. yes

Hope all is well with you! smile

Hi, Marian!

I get points for free groceries, so why not points for free games laugh ! If this works out the way we think it will, we'll actually be better off. May 23 is Victoria Day in Canada, so "Happy Victoria Day" to me lol !

All is well with me, and I hope it is with you as well. I somehow missed "Bridge to Another World: Christmas Flight" CE when it was first released, but I was looking for a second game to go with "Whispered Secrets: Tying the Knot" CE for last weekend's BOGO sale, and there it was smile .

On Big Fish's website, they have now changed the date of this new system to June 7th. Hopefully that will be a final date.

Well, here we are on the seventh of June and no sign of the transition as yet.

I am hearing from another forum that changes have been delayed until next Tuesday, the 14th. An update announcement on their website should be forthcoming.
