The Moneysaver: Triple-A Battery

Amazon throws some pre-order bait with bonus credit offers on big titles coming out in the next couple of months. Meantime, GreenMan Gaming's own 25 percent off coupon is still going, along with Microsoft Store's offer of $20 worth of Microsoft Points on 11 titles there. Those deals highlight more than 100 in all in this week's edition of The Moneysaver.

Editor's Note: Today marks the final week Deals4Downloads will be providing its list of digital distribution bargains. The site is closing down at the end of this month. We thank Deals4Downloads and its management team, Sebastian Lindig and Michael Krenz, for all they provided to The Moneysaver over the past three years (going back to when it was known as Weekend Coupons) and wish them the best.
