Pay Less for Your Guild Dues

The occasion of Guild Wars 2's second beta weekend is good enough to put the game on pre-order discount from one e-tailer. That, plus some preoders from heavily anticipated big hits this fall, and a couple of unusual combo sales, highlight the first post-E3 edition of The Moneysaver. More than 60 savings are below. Dig in!
