Frugal gamers, keep an eye on Amazon Monday. The mega-retailer is offering a day full of Gold Box video game deals - probably to clear holiday stock, but there might be something you want. Cheap.

You know the Gold Box drill - it begins at 6 a.m. PST (9 a.m. Eastern) with one deal that'll be good all day long. Then a series of timed "lightning deals" commence. They're not providing a schedule, obviously, because they want you to come back repeatedly.

Here's the full announcement:

On Monday, January 12, 2009, Video Games will be featured as the top deals in the Gold Box. The identities of each deal will be revealed one at a time.

Here's how it will work:

The first deal will be the Gold Box Deal of the Day. Its special discounted price will be available all day (or until we run out) only on Monday, January 12, 2009.

A series of Lightning Deals will then kick off at 6:00 AM PST. Each deal will be featured for a limited-time throughout the day until they are sold-out or until the next Lightning Deal begins. Learn more about Gold Box Deals in our Help section.

Be sure to come back and shop the Gold Box on the Gamers Gold Box day.
