Thread Details

I had the following Mperks
$5 off $50 total purchase
$10 off Taken King Legendary Edition
(may need a 1 cent filler depending on their calculations)

I also had a $15 off $175 when use Meijer credit card (MCard) with I was able to hit combining game with groceries.

Also was able to pick up used PS4 Destiny off Amazon for $13 (prime shipping). So did a Target trade-in for Legendary Edition (still offering $30 for PS4) for a net profit of $17.

So I kind of got the game for 60-10-15-17= $18 + tax (I would have used the $5 off $50 for food anyway, so I didn't count that).
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

My store zip is 45424 if that helps anyone get the offer.

I never buy games from Meijer, so I doubt the $10 is extremely specific to me. Also the $5 off $50 is extremely common.

I posted some similar Lego deals using Mperks last BF-Xmas season. Similar enthusiastic result. Got several private messages thanking me for the deals though from those who had a Meijer near by. If you find good deals keep posting them - and I don't play video games, I just appreciate a well designed deal like that. Smilie

A part of the reason for the lackluster feedback is due to Meijer not being a nation-wide chain.


However, the bigger reason is that the OP is humble-bragging in his post. The title is "Destiny $45 with mPerks" but he rambles on about his credit card promos, additional YMMV coupons, etc.

Certain coupons such as $5 off $50, gas coupons, pharmacy coupons, etc. are targeted. It depends on your region and shopping habits. I don't think it's a good idea to generalize these "$x off" coupons since those are an exception. For example, some people have to change their region to get these coupons to appear (so if they missed the thread, they won't have it and they won't know about it). Some people who live in the same household won't have the same coupon offers, especially the gas coupons.

I had only one thing in my post that was highly YMMV (the 15 off 175 with mcard). I purposefully didn't include that in my title for that reason. I figured I'd include it in my post because I'm sure others have similar offers. I guess shame on me for providing any helpful information.

Which was exactly my point with the "nearby" comments.

No, that's how his mind works. A couple of my deals were similarly complex as my train of thought resembles his putting together a deal like that. I did discover on a BBC amazon.co.uk deal where a helpful SDer posted - it's the ramble. Many SDers get past the first line or two and it's essentially "blah, blah, blah" after that. So I tried to make my complex deals more concise and get get far fewer TD. I've also skipped posting a couple because it's not worth the grief to explain stacking four deals for a dynamite purchase.

Almost a solid criticism, but with an important mistake. The $5 off $50 coupons advertised for weekend circulars are typically NOT targeted. Pharmacy ones are similar, i.e. if printed in circular though I would expect some state specificity. If you just hadn't, well, over-generalized would have been to the point. BTW you'll see I've posted one or two gas mPerks deals on SD which are "targeted" at the account level, so you can check and see I DO know what you are talking about.

That's just snarky, and is how to reduce people posting deals on SD. He made a legit point, and while you obviously expect him to listen to your wisdom, he responds trying to figure it out and your respond churlishly.

Actually helps me. DW has new phone number, and we are not getting the $15 off $175 purchases rewards recently. May have to start a new account. Thank you.

And on how to deal with the snarky types. I did this recently - Amazon had a newish low on a Schleich castle for a couple of days (Schleich deals are typically Amazon, TRU, and Meijer), low enough the resellers would probably see this as an opportunity and clear them out. So I looked up the threads on SD deals for this brand over the last three years, went through them quickly for anyone who contributed and the OP's, and just did a blanket PM. Several of them grabbed the deal, and after 2 days when I was going to post it (I'd told them I was going to but wanted real contributors to get the chance first, and everybody respected it) the price had already started back up. Took 10 minutes or so but well worth it. Big Grin

Ah, I was just trying to lighten the mood. I didn't want to shame the OP, I just wanted to throw in my conjecture as to why this post didn't gain popularity. It wasn't meant to shame him!


Thanks for the eloquent response. My English is still improving so my intentions don't come through quite as I would like it. Smilie

My apologies then. I cannot imagine working in a language other than English, as that is one area I am absolutely terrible at - foreign languages (took Latin to avoid speaking what I learned). Some people have their brains wired for a very quick stream of consciousness set of thoughts that can connect up great deals, but can drive other people to distraction trying to follow. My daughter is ADHD too so I get to track this kind of explanation fairly often.
