I sometimes frequent the 'just bought' thread but to be honest when I buy things it is largely on the internet and i then forget about it so never post in the thread.

so i'm starting a thread for all those people like me that receive mail and get excited about it.


i arrived home this afternoon to Brotherhood of the Storm in the mail
Posted Image

i received number 333 out of 5764. woop.


so yeah, post about what you've received in the mail lately. :)


also, wtf is up with posting images.

I like buying stuff online :D Feels like the mailman is just giving me a present.

Especially when you preorder, you pay like 3 months before and when the game arrives you just say wtf when did I get this? Awesome!

Or is that just me?

Only if you buy a sh*t ton of items. And I'm a poor student, so that has never happened. yet.


OH! I'm waiting for my very first Debit Card to arrive in the mail! ANZ have finally sorted their sh*t out!

You can buy using bank deposit on sites like MightyApe and TheNile. But yeah you will need one of those cards for NZGameshop :P

Been using Bank deposit for years now. Just have been so damn limited, and I'm buying more stuff overseas now (Band merch, etc)
I just couldn't believe ANZ have taken soooo f***ing long to finally set up the PROPER Debit card system. They did have one like it, but you had a separate account which needing transferring, and those transfers took up to like 24hrs. I had the urge to switch banks, but I'm too damn lazy.... haha

I hope for your sake they've upgraded the set up system for ANZ debit cards... I had to visit the branch twice and ring up customer service a few times for them to clarify what numbers I needed to log into the ****ing debit card account. Then it changed to some other 4 digit number that I'd never seen before and it locked me out of the debit card account. I didn't even bother trying to unlock it, as I could still access my savings and cheque accounts through the general internet banking page and I can still ring up the automated system to check if my funds have been transferred to the debit card account (they couldn't even link the debit card account to the rest of my accounts under my customer number)... AND THEY CHARGE A $1 to $2 "ADMIN FEE" PER MONTH!

TTTThat probably just reflects their systems rather than their decisions, they might not have been able to actually do it, even if they wanted to.

Westpac just linked my card to my account - It was actually the wrong account (My fault) , but they fixed it pretty easily.

HHHHMMMMMM well, let's see. I'm still waiting for three items in the post:
  • This or the Apocalypse "Dead Years" pre-order bundle w/ shirt & The Contortionist "Intrinsic" album - was supposed to ship from USA to arrive here for Sep 25th, but upon following it up earlier in the week I found out it hadn't even left the warehouse yet because they f***ed up stock of the shirt.
  • Darksiders on PS3 - ordered off trademe middle of Oct but the seller forgot about it. Chased it up and it SHOULD be here soon.
  • Dragon's Dogma on PS3 - just put the order in yesterday.

nah, bookdepository. didn't realise mightyape even sold books to be honest, i haven't used it this year and when i did it was just to buy console games mainly.

pretty much just go bookdepository these days since it has free shipping. heh. and also because now i'm shopping with the aussie dollar it makes things so much cheaper. woop.

i'll be guts when i ever move back to nz and have to suffer the shitty nzd again. >_<
