People buying AMD gear are getting all sorts of freebies lately. First, there was the Three for Free deal, which throws in free copies of Dirt: Showdown, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Nexuiz with certain Radeon HD 7900-series cards. Now, AMD says buying some of its processors will get you discounted gaming goodness, courtesy of GameFly.
Here's the skinny, straight from the AMD press release:
Gamers purchasing select AMD A-Series APUs, AMD Athlon™ II CPUs, AMD Phenom™ II CPUs or AMD FX Series CPUs in regions where GameFly is accessible receive a free, 30-day GameFly membership as well as a 20 percent discount on a new PC game purchase via the new GameFly PC store
This is a nice gesture for sure, but it's definitely not as substantial as the Three for Free promotion. Without the AMD tie-in, it looks like GameFly charges $5.95 for the first month of membership. 20% off a $59.99 game, meanwhile, adds up to about a $12 discount.
In other words, you stand to save about $18 from the deal, tops. Whether that's enough to tip the odds in AMD's favor when you're pricing out your next upgrade... well, that part is up to you.
