[False positive] Factorio on sale, 10% off - Humble subscriptions get 10% off on games

Post by T.Shirt »

In a WTF moment when I was looking at the humblebundle website I see Factorio for 10% off. Knowing the devs said it would never be on sale...is HB just eating the $3 as a promotion? Either way...mothers day isn't that far off ;-P

I don't see it, do you have some sort of subscription to Humble Bundle? I've heard something along those lines before.

Edit: 73190?start=120#p450039 is the only mention I'm seeing here

If you routinely buy 150$ worth of games every month, it's for free.

Or... you could pay $12 to save $6, because... honestly I could come up with a more sensible pricing structure than that.

this reminds me of sales people who tell you that you can save money by spending some.

"come buy our thingy and it's on sale, you'll save money!"

it's not saving money, it's spending money. saving money is a different thing that very few sales people encourage. why would they? they'd lose money. :ugeek:

Yeah OK, this was my goof. I had signed up for humble choice in December and didn't make the connection. Can I just delete the thread to hide my stupidity?

FWIW humble choice was not worth it in January.
I have a stack of keys for Humble Choice January games that I will never use if anyone wants some. I'm on Mac and most all of the games are PC.

Being mistaken doesn't make one stupid. As long as the mistake is not repeated afterwards :).
I'd rather make good use of your experience so that future people who experience the same will know from start that it's not a real Factorio sale, just a humble bundle thing.
I'll edit your first post so that the answer is included (unless you'd like me not to do so).
