AMD baits gamers with GameFly offer

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.
