Amazon is currently running a mod competition running for Thief Gold to promote the new Thief game.


Quote from Amazon :
Product Description:
Stalk your prey on the quest for stolen goods with your blackjack, sword, and an assortment of unique arrows. Steal for money and uncover the hidden agendas of your allies and enemies as you play through an unravelling story of deception and revenge. Survive in a world where shadows are your only ally, trust is not an option, and confrontation results in death!

Key Features:
Pioneering stealth based gameplay brings a new dimension to first person action.
Thief Gold includes Thief The Dark Project (12 huge missions with multiple environments) and the Gold update (3 new campaign missions which deepen the plot and add five new types of enemies)
Advanced enemies can see, hear, speak, and sound alarms.
Your arsenal includes: blackjack, sword, fire arrows, water arrows, rope arrows and more
1) Go here:
2) Fill out name and email
3) Get Amazon code for Thief Gold.
4) Go here:
5) Add to cart.
6) Apply Amazon code from Step 3 to bring price to $0.00.
7) Buy game for $0.00.
8) Get Steam key from Amazon library.
9) Redeem on Steam.


Thief is still an amazing game. Give the original a try before jumping into the next-gen reboot.

As of midnight central time on 2/21:

1) is still handing out VALID Amazon promo codes.
2) The promo codes you get from the site are worth $6.99 each.
3) The promo codes STACK under the SOFTWARE / VIDEO GAMES section.
4) The promo codes appear to only be valid for Thief (so no, you can't stack $50 worth and get an Xbox game).
5) Thief Gold is currently OOS on Amazon because the Steam keys have all been used.

So, what does this mean?

You can get the promo code and add it to your account RIGHT NOW.

As soon as Square gets more Thief Gold codes from Steam and Amazon re-stocks, you will be able to order the game and use the promo credit which is already on your account.

Basically deal is NOT DEAD. You can still get the credit. Just have to wait to claim the game.

Not fake:
See amazon link [] for details about the promotion.

Also, the official Amazon Games Twitter account has been tweeting about the promotion.

Anyone who says the promo is fake doesn't know what they are talking about. It's an official thing from Square and Amazon.

Also, from earlier, it seems anyone who registers with a real email will be taken care of:

totally legit:

For those who want to MA this as a repost I will just plop the response in here Smilie " too inconsistent to bring the first thread back from DT, leaving separate." - Thanks, Schooby

Site is handing out codes again.

If amazon asks for credit card information and address related to 1-click checkout settings, this just means you haven't enabled 1-click checkout yet. You can go ahead and put your card number, address and click to next stage of checkout. From there, you will see a place where you can enter your claimed coupon code and apply it to finish the checkout. Once that's done, you can go back to your account and disable 1-click checkout if you want.


You can still get the discount code from the competition site, but has run out of Steam codes. Will have to wait for Amazon to get more Steam codes from Square in order to redeem.

Digital items may not take physical space, but because Steam games are not DRM free, retailers still need to "restock" when they run out of keys.

2/20/14 @7:30pm PST:
I just spoke with Amazon software & digital download customer service dept. They are aware the game was "pulled" a few hours ago but were not told why (we agreed it was likley do to the invalid key glitch/running out of codes). I suggested an easy fix and they were happy to honor my request and also said they would do the same for anyone calling in with the same "invalid code" and now "unavailable game" issue. (They did ask for the last 4 characters of the codes I had tried to verify none had been applied to my account.)

A $7.00 credit was applied to my digital download account specific to this title, valid for 2 weeks which should be plenty of time to have the game back up, especially since there is a contest going on. If you really want the game (as my son does) you should give them a call.
(Hope this is helpful to someone & that I did the edit correctly) Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

You can redeem the code even if the game is OOS. You need the 'promotional credit' page. Open an instant video ( and click 'Redeem a gift card or promotion code'
After redeemed, you can check your Amazon balance here:

Quote from iCheapo View Post :
AWESOME! Thief has always been my favorite game of all time and I've been meaning to try out the extra missions in Thief Gold for some time now. Thank you so much OP!

I installed the game through Steam and noticed that the cutscenes were not working for me. After reading through some online posts, I fixed it by doing the following:

1.) Find the Theif Gold game files in your Steam folder (should be under Steam > SteamApps > Common > Thief Gold).
2.) Copy the game folder and all its contents to a separate folder on your drive.
3.) Download and install the TFix patch []. Be sure to read the important notes before you install.

This should clean up those problem codecs and you have the option of putting in much nicer textures and skins.

Just wanted to help some fellow taffers out. Big Grin

You are entering the code on and not trying to use the Amazon discount code on Steam, right?

Quote from Votey View Post :
You mean this expired Front Page deal?
The Amazon server is handing out the codes right now, so it seems to be live.

Checked Hot Deals and Digital Freebies via search before posting. Didn't check DT because the promo is active.


Attached a photo showing that the promo codes are still very much LIVE right now.

I went through the above steps and redeemed for a free game without issue, right on

Those of you that are having problems redeeming, are you using a real email address on the contest site?

I registered with a real email and had no issues redeeming the code.

I tried two different browsers (and generated two codes), when I put the code into amazon it says invalid.

Tried several times since early AM to get the code from the site. FInally got a code, but Amazon says it's not valid. What's funny is that it says Amazon says I have coupon credit for 2.01 and 4.98 and would give me the game for free, but I'm not sure what those coupon credits are from. I think it was for something else I bought before. IN any case the code I got from the site is rejected by Amazon.
