Often, Amazon has good prices on games. But sometimes you might not want to pull the trigger because there is usually a $25 minimum to get free shipping. Well, perhaps not anymore if you fall into 2 categories that many do fall into:
If you are a student you can get free Amazon prime through Amazon Student.
If you are caretaker of children (Dad, Mom, Granny, Gramps, etc), you can get free Amazon prime through Amazon Mom.
Enjoy your free 2 day shipping!
Choose from Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Don't Break the Ice, Ants in Pants, and more. Rebate ends December 31.
It appears that the rebate may only be valid for in-store purchases only. Also, if buying in store, you can get a $10 GC after purchasing $25 worth of games.

Shopping Comparison Sites
So you decided that you are ready to buy another board game for your collection. The first thing that you need to do is scope out prices across the Internet. There are many online game stores now, which has driven prices lower and customer service higher. Finding the best price at all of them is not an easy task. However, shopping comparison sites can make that task a bit easier.

Amazon.com is currently offering Carcassonne Hunters & Gatherers for 42% off the list price, which makes it $18.82. It can ship free if you spend $25 (throw on some groceries to your order that you need to get anyway) or with Amazon Prime. In case you missed the memo, Amazon.com prime is now totally free for 1 year for all college students.
This game is a stand-alone game and does not require the original Carcassonne game to play. All of the games in the Carcassonne series are great for play with friends or family. They are quick to learn, but there is a lot of strategy to master, making them great for "non-gamer" friends. As proof of that, this game is ranked the #26 family game on Board Game Geek.
The King and Scout expansion to Carcassonne provides an expansion to this game, titled Scout. This is actually selling right now for $6.36 on amazon, so if you are going to pick up both, spend $25.18 and have a top-tier game and an expansion delivered to your door for free.

Dominion, one of the top games to be released in the last several years, is currently selling for a very nice price on Amazon.com - $28.95, shipped free!
I can tell you from personal experience that you will very likely love this game - it is a very good game that can be played over and over. The game scenarios that you can create are vast and virtually limitless. There are several expansions that can also be purchased to expand the game even further!
This game has won practically every gaming award out there. It is ranked 7 on BoardGameGeek, and I believe it will rise to even higher ranks than that.
