I've known about the site for awhile. They make you enter your credit card number, so that's a no-no.

Okay, they must have changed their policies recently. I'll check it out later.

Nevermind. It asks for the CC once you try to actually get the game.

You get a free $1 for the transaction fee and 10 points free it seems. Read 5 somewhere.

Turns out you really need a credit card, which sucks (for me mostly).

I placed an order for Blood Wake. My account has not been charged anything and from the sound of it they send the offerer an envelope and send the game directly to you. Might be a while.

Bitch. I thought about ordering that.

But yeah, they have Head Automatica - Popaganda. I'm going through with the CC thing anyway now. I was going to buy the album when the funds allow it, but this site just saved me $15.

I got the email saying it shipped out. My checking account got charged $1 (debit card), probably just their verification system and I'll get the buck back. The guy is in New York so at best it will be here by Thursday.

Wow, that was faster than I imagined. Perhaps Barter Bee use overnight shipping to get the envelope to the seller?

That game is like mixing Formula 1 with Monkeyball. In other words, it's awesome.

Alright, I got the game today. Either this guy did it or BarterBee requires it, but the case was missing and all I got was the box insert, manual and cd. Nicely inserted into the envelope. Disk was scratched but probably playable, XBox doesn't have video cables plugged in right now. For a free game this place is great.

No case? Odd. I'm pretty sure that's the guy's fault, as I see lots of item descriptions saying "case is scratched/cracked" or whatever. That would be worth mentioning if BarterBee requires that you ship without the case.

This site sucks. Or the people, rather, suck. They're trying to charge 50 points (equivalent of $50) for stuff like Jak 2. WTF is this, eBay? :|
Very sexy hero, omg

Frees free. Thus anything you can get is something. At worst I'll put this on ebay or offer it up for sale.

I wanna get a game, but my moms being a retard and she won't let me use her debit card. I wanna get an XBOX game to get my collection up. I wish that they DIDN'T ask for a cc. My mom thinks they are gonna jack into her account and steal her money.

I got my CD today. APE was right, they do ship without the cases, I guess to save on shipping since the site provides the envelopes. The inserts and CD were fine though. The CD came in a white sleeve. I took apart the case for the SR-71 CD I bought the other day and I'm using it as the case. I bought it for new for $1.50 and it sucks anyway. Head Automatica > SR-71.
