Not necessarily! If you buy the Got Anime membership, it's an instant $12 for TRSI. Instant cash can help the bottom line far more than a little here and there from purchases. For example, Shawne says that the Summer is the slowest time of the year for them. Renewing the GA membership at that time can is a life saver for them, when it comes to their bottom line for that quarter.

The Daily Deals also periodically contain items from companies that have rare (or no) studio sales. I've picked up some of Discotek titles this way, among others.

Indeed! I've taken advantage of a few Media Blasters titles that were in the Daily Deals.

My orders are usually $120-180 in size, but because I mostly buy pre-orders or recent releases, something like 80% is excluded from coupon codes, so I have maybe 1 in 4 times enough non-excluded items to apply a coupon. frown

Although... on the occasions where an item is NOT excluded, you can stack up for major discount.

I personally use the GA coupons on my manga orders. All of the manga (including preorders) is at their everyday 25% off discount and that means they are eligible for coupons and GA discount.

Unfortunately not very financially feasable for me personally: first item shipping cost of $13.50 and $3.50 for each further item (6 manga would be $31 shipping) make Rightstuf not very attractive for me for cheap items such as manga. frown (compare to, for me, EUR 5 flat shipping or free "pick up at Dutch convention" and no customs fees from Archonia in Belgium or free shipping and near zero chance of customs fees from bookdepository (though their free shipping doesn't always seem to be very reliable shipping...) .

The more expensive, limited run "Gundam - Origin vol. 1" manga did push my most recent Rightstuf order into "can use GA coupon" teritory. (didn't have confidence Archonia would still have that limited run title in stock when I place a bulk manga order there in may...)
I'm a computer geek hand-optimizing my orders at various stores to trim away as much shipping costs, customs fees etc. as I can. wink

Ah yes! I keep on forgetting that you don't live in the US. For me, it's much more feasible to buy smaller items and take advantage of the GA benefits.

Shipping costs, customs costs etc. have really fractured my buying...
- anime: Rightstuf (whenever there's a batch of $120-160 orderable on my wishlist), with a bit of Amazon UK now and then and very Rarely a NL DVD from Archonia
- manga: Archonia (3 times a year pichup@convertion, whatever was released of my ongoing series between Dutch conventions [1]), with a bit of Rightstuf or Bookdepository now and then
- merchandise: HLJ, with a bit of Amiami or eBay now and then
Very little overlap there.

[1] and the last few times being in despair at the lack of any new SZS manga being included in the batch... ;-(

PS: thanks for the tip about existing pre-orders and manufacturer sales.


More on topic: 1 or 2 more announced titles moving to pre-orderable and then I can go skimming through the daily deals and weekly specials for something to pad a May/June order...
