The Geekbox's Amazon Store

We've recently started an Amazon store (it's also linked in the top nav on the main site). I'm basically trying to make it a mix of "stuff we like and/or have talked about on the podcast" and "upcoming stuff that we think people will be interested in." So, if you are inclined to purchase games/DVDs/comics online, please consider purchasing through our Amazon store. We need our weekly pizza money. :)

It's obviously a work-in-progress, and I'm still adding stuff to it (and I'll be updating it regularly). I'm also taking requests; post in this thread about anything you're interested in, and if enough people are interested, I'll happily add the relevant items to the store.

So, yeah. Buy stuff!

UPDATE: Amazon has dropped all California-based Associate Program partners because of legislation that puts a stop to their dodgy sales tax practices. So, yeah. No more Amazon store.

Yeah, I don't think advertising this thing as fueling 'The EatBox' will get you much support. :lol:

Can't you just do a general referral link to Amazon so you get credit for anything we buy?

This interface is horrible. Isn't there a way I can see more than nine titles at a time?

I'd like to see some more comic books up there. Better yet, a Comics Conspiracy online store. Do they have one of those yet?

Are you guys going to get DC:U up there? If I can't make the pre-order I'd buy it from your store.

It does, but that isn't evident by the horrible/unintuitive layout.

Barely has more than games.

If they put up some good board games/tabletop RPG's I'd buy them. I need some good ones to convince people to play with me, but I don't know which ones to buy. Help me Geekbox, you're my only hope.

Hey Ryan, I have a question about the Amazon store.
Do you get money if we use the page and click the "24 new or used available.." link or can we only use the "Add to Shopping Cart" button? I buy used stuff a lot from Amazon.

Also, would you add the Sony PS3 Blu Ray Remote? I'll probably pick one up soon!
Thanks!

EDIT:
Guys! I figured out how to get any item to show up in the Geekbox Amazon store.
First go to Amazon and find the item you want. , say The Wizard of Oz on Blu Ray.
Now look at the Amazon URL and take the item number from it (in bold).

amazon.com/Wizard-Oz-70th-Anniversary-Blu-ray/dp/B00388PK1A/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1FTGF92FRD5HP&colid=320NHH87OIH17


Now open a new window and paste this URL into the bar http://astore.amazon.com/thegee08-20/detail/

Finally type the item number you got from the Amazon URL to the end of the last URL

AND PRESTO!

Yeah, i don't think that was a good idea. This is stuff they recommend, not us. Now any asshole can fuck with the site.

Any asshole that visits the forums, but I don't think anyone hates the Geekbox enough to want to mess with the store.

I don't think it messes with the site or the recommendations, just lets you use the Geekbox store to buy stuff only available from Amazon directly.

This is pretty neat. I'll try and keep it in mind next time I'm ordering anything from Amazon.

I see Catan on there. I'll be picking that up soon. It would be nice to get some others. Arkham Horror would be cool, I've been wanting to try it. I need games that are simple and pretty related to other casual board games, yet are more nerdy like Catan and Risk, any suggestions? I'm trying to get people to start playing these games with me. I don't know anyone who's into them though, and if I throw down a table top RPG they would walk away.

Probably just enough to pay for the ranch dressing that comes with their pizza.

That's 25 cents if they get it at Pizza Hut.
