EXPIRED Deal – Free 12 Months of Jet Membership with Purchase

A new site called Jet just launched. This site is billing itself as a members-only site like Costco or Sam’s Club. Right now, when you sign up with the promo code CURISMA, you can get a free 12 month membership. If you continue your membership, it will be $49 for a year. Other codes that might work include TAPJET and TKERSHAW. Sign up with the promo code now, but your 1 year will start from the date you place your first order. If you continue your membership, it’s $49.99 a year.

Jet is interesting in its pricing. It matches a lot of prices from Amazon and then discounts them further. Free shipping on $35 (before discounts). You do need to experiment a bit with their discounts. When you add items, Jet may discount other items further. So I played around with the site for a bit, and I had offers go up from under a $1 off up to $2-3 and so on. So add stuff, delete, and play around. Note that items are fulfilled by various third-party vendors like Buy.com and Walmart.com.

As I mentioned, they are matching a lot of Amazon’s prices. One example is Attack on Titan Colossal Edition 2. Your deal may vary, but right now they are offering it to me for $26.18 – $3.37 = $22.81. When I was testing the pricing algorithms by adding more to my cart, I had an offer for an additional $6 and change off, making this gigantic 5-in-1 volume for only $20.

They also offer additional discounts depending on your payment method, up to 1.5% off if you use a Visa debit card.

I did order a couple of volumes of Naruto for as low as $4.78 for volume 66 and Hetalia Axis Powers Complete DVD for $13.24.

EXPIRED Deals – Walmart Preorder Deals with Free Shipping

Walmart has a whole bunch of manga preorders heavily discounted (most 47-48% off) with free shipping! No minimum purchase required! You order several items at once, and they will all ship individually. Walmart accepts cash (pay in store within 48 hours), PayPal, and credit/debit cards.

I believe this covers most of the heavily discounted preorders. Note that some are due to be released real soon, so get your order in now before the free shipping disappears or the price goes up!

UPDATE: Since my original post, Walmart has lowered the price on some of these titles and raised the price on others. The bad deals have been removed, and new ones were added. Some of the titles that have been released since then are at the same price or lower, but they are no longer eligible for free shipping. Those titles are eligible for free shipping on $35+.

My pick this time around are the two large Kodansha USA Omnibuses: Attack on Titan Colossal Edition 2 for $25.94 and Fairy Tale: Master’s Edition 1 for $20.75.
