Partnered with GMG


I’m excited to share with you all that we are now partnered with Green Man Gaming!

We’re always on the lookout for opportunities to provide our readers and community with resources to save them time and money. At the same time, we have a requirement of anything we endorse, recommend or affiliate with: We must have already used it ourselves and love it.

Green Man Gaming has been a great resource for gaming deals over the years. Being as transparent as possible, here is a list of every game Graev and I have purchased from GMG in the past two years:

Keen and Graev voucher
Use code: KEENAN-DGRAEV-G20OFF Save 20% on games like Mortal Kombat X and GTAV
  • Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (NA)
  • The Wolf Among Us
  • XCOM: Enemy Within (NA)
  • Battlefield 4
  • THIEF: Master Thief Edition (NA)
  • Titanfall
  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Imperial Edition (Two Copies)
  • WildStar
  • Tropico 5
  • The Evil Within and Season Pass
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization®: Beyond Earthâ„¢

Most of those are Steam keys, some are on Origin, and the rest are stand-alone titles. TESO, WildStar, BF4, and Civ 5 were all pre-orders. GMG handles pre-orders very well and has never been late delivering our keys (which they store in a convenient section on the website under your account).

GMG is a great place to save $5-$10 on new games. For example, when ESO hadn’t even come out yet I purchased both copies at 20% off. The way GMG does this is through these voucher codes like the one in the image above. Using the code KEENAN-DGRAEV-G20OFF you can save 20% on even new titles like Mortal Kombat X and GTAV. It’s silly to pay full price for games when they’re available at a discount right at launch.

So what do we get for this partnership? It’s an affiliate program. That means we get a percentage of what you buy. All of our earnings go directly toward paying for our hosting, domain, and Ventrilo server (which cost more than we have ever made on ads/affiliate programs).  I want to get to the point where we can break even by sending you to places where you can actually save money (like GMG) and ditch these Google ads we have on the blog.

How will we utilize this new partnership? I’ll be watching GMG closely and letting you know about deals. Follow us on twitter (@keenandgraev) where I’ll tweet about a great deal when I find one. I’ll also likely include a link in a review or something. No spamming, no banners, nothing obnoxious. Just honest down-to-earth good deals when I see one.

Thank you for your support!

  • @Werit: Green Man Gaming accepts the following payment methods:

    Visa credit / debit / prepaid
    Mastercard credit / debit / prepaid
    American Express
    PaysafeCard (does not accept refunds)
    UnionPay (does not accept refunds)
    Webmoney (does not accept refunds)
    Qiwi (does not accept refunds)
    Bitcoin (does not accept refunds)

    I always use Paypal. 🙂 And I buy from them and activate my Steam key on Steam. I end up saving $5, $10, $15, etc., and its as though I bought it on Steam.

  • Thanks. I’ll certainly keep that in mind for future purchases.

    I wonder how it works business wise. Do they just have a smaller profit margin?

  • GMG is great, this is a profitable decision for you, and it doesn’t violate the 3rd Rule of Acquisition for me!

  • I have been using GMG for quite some time now. Never had a problem on their transactions and they have had some really stellar deals over the years. I think I have bought something like 20 games via their site and based on how kick ass the new Mad Max game looks I am sure to be adding to that soon.

  • Very cool, I shop at GMG occasionally and I will definitely use your code. On a related note you guys are one of the VERY few sites (~3) I whitelist for adblock. The least I can do for a couple of my favorite bloggers.

  • Great news! I always shop at GMG, so this is extremely helpful.

    Do you know, is there a expiry date on that discount code?

  • @Gankatron: Haha Indeed. Indeed.

    @nukethissitefromorbit: Yeah, without a doubt they are THE ‘deal’ site I’ve used for the past two years. They’ve earned my trust and my business.

    @Jenks: Thanks Jenks! We appreciate it a lot. I hope the two ads we have are unobtrusive. We could put a third ad and put them in places that would make a bit more money but I think anywhere else would be too annoying.

    @Lengle: I have not been given an expiration date at this time. That’s what they’ve given me so that our readers can enjoy a 20% discount on a lot of games (including many new titles).
