I bought $50 of books... but I was out of power so going to Borders was my only option.


Hey, if you use a Coinstar machine, you get 100% of your money back if you get an Amazon gift card!  So go take care of your change and spend it to help FTL at the same time!

Which is the reason I actually read this thread.  I read through all the gift certificate fine print on Amazon to make sure FTL would get credit if I used coinstar, but couldn't find anything relevant.  Before I drag my li'l red wagon full of coinage over to the grocery store:

Ian, do associates get credit if gift cards/gift certificates/coinstar receipts are used as payment?

If so, my dresser is fixin' to get about 200# lighter.  And, this method of supporting FTL should be hounded incessantly!

One FTL inspired shopping trip @ Amazon completed, thru the FTL search link. Ordered (used) Terry Goodkind Sword of Truth, books 1 & 2.
Not sure how exactly I managed to miss reading Goodkind in my almost 30 years of SciFi/Fantasy reading.

I bought V for Vendetta 2 disc special edition through the Free Talk Live web site.  It was several dollars cheaper than Walmart's price, and that includes the shipping cost.   :D

Once you make an Amazon purchase, is there any kind of feedback to let you know that money went to FTL?

I pre-ordered Bullshit season 3 through FTL today. I rarely buy things from Amazon, or from outside The EU in general, because there's a 25% tax on things imported from outside The EU. You pay the regular price when ordering, then pay the extra tax when picking the package up at the post office. If the government catches the package that is, sometimes it slips through unnoticed, but things obviously commercial, like packages with a bigass "amazon.com" printed on them, tend to get noticed. I think it's basically some government employees standing in front of a conveyor belt with packages going by, so it's inevetible they'll miss some stuff.

I've been trying to reconcile spending 300 dollars on Lost, Battlestar Galactica, House, and Rome.  This helps rationalize spending that money.

I'll keep that in mind when buying a Playstation 3.  One thing in a series of things that will be necessary to help me dish out money to buy that little piece of hardware.

Hey honey.  What's that?
Just a new piece of metal and plastic I purchased.
Oh yeah?  How much did that cost you?
...650 dollars...120 for games...

I saw that some of the Xbox360 games are going for over $60 after taxes.  I was like wtf.  A good thing about games now is the Greatest Hits collections and such.  Top selling Playstation 2 games drop in price by 50% after 18 months or something.

Has this ever been answered? I just bought an assload of stuff and was wondering if FTL got a cut of the action.


PS - Amazon is offering a free month of Amazon Prime right now, just got all my stuff shipped 2-day for free. Just have to remember to cancel the acct before the end of the 30 days.
