Sometimes it’s not easy being a Canadian on Goozex. Especially when you factor in the exorbitant rates charged by Canada Post. Would you believe that depending on the size and weight, it sometimes costs less to ship to the US then it would to ship across the country? On the other hand, if it weighs more than 100 g and you need to ship to the US, it costs over $5 (without tracking or insurance), which makes you think twice about listing 100 point games.
Anyway, the other day I was looking through my list of requests and I went and checked out my place in line for Red Dead Redemption for PS3. A small tear came to my eye as I noticed I was still in 85th place despite having had the game on my list for months. Heck, when I first added it, it didn’t even list my place in line, it simply said “Long wait…”; so I guess 85th place was an improvement.

In a previous post I mentioned buying a bunch of games from Rogers Video as part of their boxing day sale. One of those games was a PS3 game called Enslaved: Odyssey to the West developed by Ninja Theory.
Some of the games that I bought that day were purely for trade on Goozex, but this one I actually wanted to play. I don’t remember where I first heard about it, but at some point prior I had decided that I wanted to play it and added it as a request on Goozex.
Sadly, I was in 80th place in line on Goozex (the unfortunate case with new games). So imagine my surprise when I found it at Rogers Video for a mere $13.33 (buy 1 get 2 free at $40).

In case you haven’t heard, Goozex made an announcement yesterday regarding a necessary price increase in the use of the game/movie trading service.
Starting December 1st, trading tokens will increase to $1.99 from the original $1.00.
Trading tokens are only required when you receive a game/movie, so this change does not effect sending them out.
The benefits of the increase, as quoted from the statement, are as follows…
“The fee increase allows Goozex to keep expanding the service, meet your customer support demands, and improve the e-commerce experience for all members. Along with the fee increase we are going to deliver a better and improved user experience on Goozex.”
