Discountoid: Gift Cards Galore

Discountoid: Gift Cards Galore  photo

I hope you like Gift Cards, because an exceptionally large chunk of this week's deals are giving them away. Circuit City currently has ten titles with $10 Gift Card offers. Gamefly has dropped prices on a whole slew of used games that are worth taking a gander at. Meanwhile, everyone else has a pretty meager offering in the ad circulars, with the exception of Best Buy's $20 drop on Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. 

The interesting thing, however, is how much real estate the games are taking up in the ads. Several of the circulars this week had twice the amount of space devoted to videogames as I'm used to seeing, which can only mean one thing. Can you say, "Christmas ramp-up?" I knew you could.

Hit the jump to see all the deals this week.
