@GameDealsCanada Update – Adding Referrals & More

@GameDealsCanada began as a direct result of a dare. I had the idea to start a Twitter feed dedicated to video game deals, but lacked the motivation to create it. “Who would follow such a thing?” Then Robocrotch said, “If you start the feed, I will join Twitter and follow it.” And thus that’s how @GameDealsCanada was born.

With 200 followers (including plenty of entertaining spam followers), I’d say it’s been a successful little side thing. I’ve received kind words and thanks for the service which is always a nice ego boost however, I wanted a bit more feedback.

Firestorm (of NeoGAF and RFD fame) pointed me towards HootSuite. It’s supposed to be a way to monetize Twitter through Google Adsense, but at the moment it’s nothing more than a stat tracker. You may have noticed the HootSuite toolbar and Ow.ly links; that’s all HootSuite.

Checkpoint: Griping About Amazon.ca Edition

checkpoint_griping_amazonca

Update: After a quick e-mail to Amazon.ca, my Killzone 2 order was shipped post-haste. They were experiencing “technical issues”.

All good things come to an end and Amazon.ca is no different. For the past year or so, I’ve been recommending Amazon.ca to everyone I know and with good reason. There was the $10 off coupon, free shipping for orders over $39 and relatively speedy shipping service. Now, it seems like everything I enjoyed from the online retailer is no longer valid.

The “$10 off with a new Amazon.ca account” trick

Update: Just got word that the coupons no longer work. End of the good times.

Apparently, I live in my own deals bubble. I assumed everyone who knew anything about deals knew about the “$10 off with a new Amazon.ca account” trick. Well let me tell you uninformed folks how this “trick” works. “There’s no trick to it, it’s just a simple trick.” If you have any questions about this, please feel free to leave me a comment.

Requirements

  • New Amazon.ca account
  • Order must be total $40 or more before taxes and shipping fees (works on pre-orders)
