Here on SG, you can still slide the sliders as you please. May the Choice be with you!

View Results
[▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁█▁] RECURRING: This might as well be the most amazing lineup ever featured in a Choice / Monthly so far. And people keep complaining that Humble Bundle is at its lowest peak these days…
[▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁█] NEW SUB: Well, now I got myself a subscription, let's see how long I last till I'll be playing the Pausing minigame as well.
[▁▁▁▁▁█▁▁▁▁] MAYBE: Others seem to like this month a lot but I'm on the fence. Maybe I'll see what Fanatical has in store for us this month first and only then decide whether I want to get this one or not.
[▁▁█▁▁▁▁▁▁▁] PAUSE: The genres of the sneak-peak games are not my thing, so I was hoping to find something interesting among the remaining games, in order to avoid a skip. Too bad it's not the case.
[█▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁] COMPLAINT: IGN made sure to not leave us even an ounce of choice, with the sliders gone and both Classic and Premium getting all games anyway every month.

I CANT SUBSCRIBE ANYMORE !!!!!!!!!

I am planning to get a subscription, but I have some queries.

  • It says $12 for the first 12 months. What if I subscribed today and cancel/pause for the next month i.e. June will I still get monthly choice bundle at the price of $12 for other 11 months?
  • Can I pause the monthly any number of time?
  • Does the price chance for the monthly exactly 1 year later if there are pauses?

What if I subscribed today and cancel/pause for the next month i.e. June will I still get monthly choice bundle at the price of $12 for other 11 months?

Subscribing for 12 months mean that you will be granted 12 slots of monthlies (if you want to skip month - pause). All unused slots will be shifted to 1 month.
If you cancel - you will lose 12$/month plan. And your price will be increased to ~19$

Can I pause the monthly any number of time?

Yes, because pausing = losing subscribers' privileges (i.e. 20% discount, access to Trove).

Does the price chance for the monthly exactly 1 year later if there are pauses?

You'll get 12$/month for 12 months paused time will be excluded (12 monthlies to claim).

About Darksiders: I'm in Europe, do I get a region-free copy or ROW copy or something similarly unristricted? E. i. can I gift it to anybody in any country?
(I'm asking since the thread usually list "Everybody else gets a ROW copy" for region locked games, but this time Darksiders only has locks for ASIA and LATAM+others, and no "everybody else category". Better safe than sorry)

There is no chance that they will put games from which at least 1 wil be on each of subscribers wl/wanted. But its all about price/quality of games in some matters, bundle is worth only for Darksiders Genesis and/or Metro Exodus

That's basically to be expected when you do a chargeback. Humble retaliated and no longer wants to do business with you as a result

I tried doing things "the right way" and contacted customer service multiple time, and they kept changing their excuse as to why I wasn't getting my promised discount.

I contacted PayPal asking whether I should change my claim since now HB was not giving me the games I paid for, and they've offered me a $5 credit for my trouble.

I'd just try to be careful with chargebacks in general. In this case Humble has banned people and cut them off of their purchases for doing less. Personally I've never done one but if I did it wouldn't be for a small amount of money and I'd only do it with someone I know I'd be ok with never doing business with again

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I've done chargebacks before with other companies when customer service refuses to help, and never had any problems. Most of the complaints I had read about HB was about their crappy game offerings (which is a matter of personal opinion) or bannings for trading (which sucks, but it is technically against their TOS) so I didn't expect them to be quite this much hassle. After this, I'm not very upset if they don't want my business.

It displayed the regular price, but the offer said the coupon would be applied automatically at checkout, yet when I clicked check out, no discount was applied.

This is the fine print of the coupon.

Single use coupon. Coupon is redeemable for a Humble Classic plan at $9 USD a month for 3 months before any applicable taxes and fees. Coupon expires on May 4th, at 9:59 am PT. Only Humble Classic customers who currently have paused plans with no credits remaining and who are not on an Annual plan are eligible. Only users who receive this email are eligible. This price is locked in for 3 months, and this offer will be void if your plan is canceled or paused. Gifts are not eligible. This coupon may not be combined with other identical coupons in the same transaction, and may not be combined with other Humble Bundle coupons. Discount will be automatically applied at time of checkout. Early unlocking this month of Humble Choice will ensure that the coupon is properly applied to your purchase. More information available here. Coupon has no cash value. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Coupon may not be reproduced, copied, purchased, traded or sold. Unauthorized transfer of coupon and internet distribution strictly prohibited. Customers in Russia or in China are not eligible.

This is the 1st response I got from customer support:


Thanks for your patience! That coupon on your account was for Premium subscribers instead of Classic subscribers. Unfortunately, since you've already redeemed all the content from your Choice purchase, we cannot refund and put the Classic Plan coupon on your account. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

When I replied back, telling them explicitly what the coupon said, this was the response:


Thanks for writing back! There was a mixup on that coupon, and you were given the Premium Plan coupon instead of the Classic Plan coupon. However, since the coupon has expired, and you purchased the April 2021 Humble Choice at the normal price and redeemed all the content, we cannot refund the purchase or retroactively apply the coupon to your account. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

According to my billing history, I bought the Month-to-Month Classic Plan and I did pay the normal price, but the coupon said to join now to lock in the price for the next 3 months. I took "next 3 months" as meaning the following 3, ie May, June, and July, so I never considered paying the full price as any implication that they weren't applying the coupon to my account, and only noticed the problem after trying to Early unlock May's games about 10 or 15 minutes after the bundle became available.

Comment has been collapsed.

If you were autocharged on 25 May, then that means that the May games are available to claim.
You'll need to pause before the next autocharge date which is 29 Jun if you don't want the June games. You can pause now too, but sometimes Humble Bundle likes to automatically unpause you right after they launch the next month's Choice, so you'd have to double check that anyway.

They have to make people look at their store so someone buy things, right? I literally tried to find it myself but couldn't get where is that damn timer. Because I never now if it's 6 or 7 PM my local time. But I realized it's 7 PM, by looking at my mail from Humble about March Choice, that I hopefully didn't delete (as I usually do).
