Is this lineup a trick 🎭 or a treat 🍭?

View Results
[Recurring subscription] Oooof, this is a pretty bad month but I’ll still keep my subscription going otherwise the regrets will haunt 👻 me even in the afterlife ☠️.
[New subscription] This time IGN managed to put the right ingredients in the cauldron ⚱️ of this bundle. I am bewitched! 🦉
[Maybe subscribe] Not all the featured games are interesting for me, but overall I still wouldn’t call this a bad 🦇 lineup. I need my crystal ball 🔮 to help me decide.
[Pause] I don’t see anything Spooktacular ⚡ among these titles.
[Cancelling / will not buy] None of the last months appealed to me 🖤, therefore I think it’s time to pull the plug completely ⚰️.

Alright, so I also got the offer, and my plan is about to run out - but it still says "Your next bill is for US$35 on October 26, 2021.", and if I click to claim October's games the popup says "3-Month Classic Plan US$35.00"

Madjoki then told me I had to switch to month-to-month payment, so I changed my billing cycle from 3 months to monthly with the warning that I will not be able to go back to 3 month cycle. After that I went to claim October's games and was charged $6.

You bought the October bundle for 5€, you were charged 5€ and got access to the October games.
At November 30 you will be charged 18€ for the yet unreleased November bundle, which is the date of the auto-charge (last Tuesday of the month). But you will be able to pause for a month or to cancel your subscription to not have to pay these 18€ (and therefore you won't get the November Choice games).
Edit : If your offer was 5€ for several months, then I don't know :/

Yep, exactly same problem. On bill is marked coupon for 3 first months, coupon is in inventory, but it says at November I will pay 18€. Hope they haven't started with some shady practics to increase sells.

Got $6 for 3 months. It's a gamble I guess since this months games are awful. Hopefully there will be a game or two worth the 6 coming up.

For real. $6 for this month's choice is still not appealing to me. For the next two months? Maybe. It's like Fanatical's mystery bundles. You're gambling in hopes you get something good. You might or might not. Do I want to take the chance though...

Having bought 2-3 mystery bundles over the years I'd say that's probably pretty accurate. HB offers quality, on average.

They've been doing them for 3 months at a time since the earlier 6 month one expired. I wouldn't read much into it. I cancelled a week ago after my 3 month $8/m expired and just got a new 3 month $6/m offer today.

So I have Humble Choice Classic, paused this month, and now am offered the $6/month for 3 months deal but it sounds like it would change my subscription from Classic to Premium? Meaning after the 3 months are up the price of the subscription will be higher then ever?

same here, im worried if i stay on classic after 3mo

@EDIT
Press 'select games', select all, then 'claim 12' then u can see '$6 USD a month to sign up for Humble Choice Classic for 3 months'

So even there was ;oremium plan' in mail, u stay on classic

I had this concern back in december when the first coupon came out - figured if they really do remove me from classic, it's a sign for me to quit bundles/go back to the pausing every month strategy for coupons.

Carefull if you are on the annual billing cycle. Got that $6 offer, clicked "redeem" in the mail and "unpause" on the site that opened and it just used one of my prepaid months. Guess I could have seen it coming, but it would have been nice if they made this clear.

How to use the coupon if there are still remaining months?

I think it only works for the monthly subscribers, doesn't work if you bought a yearc plan and have credits left. Maybe try buying it as a gift and gifting it to yourself on a different account?

I'm having the same situation, pausing for the month (classic) while still having lots of month remaining (yearly plan). If I took the coupon, will my remaining months will be gone ? or my yearly will be switched to monthly ? so confusing ...

*edit
just received email from Humble Bundle team, its a no for prepaid annual plans :/ why bothered sending me those coupon.

"
Thanks for reaching out to Humble Bundle Customer Support. This particular coupon does not apply to the prepaid Annual Plans. I'm sorry for the confusion!

I've alerted our marketing team to the issue so that we can better route coupons in the future.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Take care

To my surprise, i got the 6$ offer too. The one and only i received was back in December. After that i got an email only once about getting 12$/month for one year, while i was already on classic plan lol.

Anyway, will jump on the wagon for Amnesia and hope it's more of a survival horror experience than Machine for Pigs was. Katana Zero looks cool too. Will check the rest and maybe give them away to friends or here.

I haven't received the offer and it still shows me the 12$ price when trying to buy it. Is there any other person in this situation?

You'll need to receive the offer via email first. It seemed some classic subscribers got the offer but had troubles applying it? Some claim if they have the setting set as month to month they could apply it. But You'll need to receive the offer first. Make sure you are subscribed to their promotions.

Also sitting on the fence with the $6/mth for 3 months deal. The only real looker this month is Katana Zero which can arguably be worth the $6 and some, but the thought of being locked in for another 2 months with nothing interesting is quite a gamble.

The CDN conversion isn't too much either but I'm sitting on a lot of unused keys in my HB account already.

u can always pause next month-u will lose only 6$ promo for 2 mths. Even 3rd month will be must-buy for you, u will pay 12+6=18 for 2 monts, so still better than 2x12. Also, there is always a chance next month will be good bundle

There's always a chance, and I'm a gamblin` man. There's also the gamble that I'll forget to pause at the appropriate time and usually the house wins that one.

for all those who got coupon 3mo/6$:

its better to pause THEN redeem if close to end. Maybe there will be a leak for next month, u can decide then if its worth or nah

No, not at all. We maybe had 3-4 relevant leaks in all these years. Sometimes they intentionally announce one or more games early, but that's also rare.

Does Humble just send 6$ coupons randomly? It would be an alright price for me to get Katana Zero and Ring of Pain, but it seems they hate me :/ And they keep advertising getting the games for 12$, which isn't true for me

I seem to get the $6 for one month quite often (last 2 or 3 for sure). The $6 for 3 months thing is more rare.

I noticed they send out coupons on tuesdays evenings. As for which one they send it depends (seems random).

My theory is it depends on which past deals you've taken part in before. If you only try out humble during the $6 coupons gotten in December, that's the one they'll send you to entice you to come back. For ones that never gotten choice, I've seen $8-9 coupons, never $6. I'm guessing certain groups and criteria being met will get you the $6 coupon if they're passing it out. Some weeks or months though they're only giving out $8-9 coupons though. For bundles that sell poorly, they seem to offer the $6 coupon more to bump their sales.

They sent the coupon this time because everyone paused as soon as they saw the bundle.

That's the thing, for 6$ I'd grab it. Katana Zero and Ring of Pain are solid, especially if the KZ dev finally releases the second part of the story (I beat it on Gamepass, but it was honestly so good I'd do it again)

I got the $6 offer -- I've only had a subscription once, for one month during whatever the wacky "one month dirt cheap" deal was a year or so ago.

I'm debating it, but I really don't know if Humble will give me $18 in games over three months,

Well, enough folks AREN'T getting it that it might mean the games in each bundle aren't reflective of whatever active discounts are coming. It's possible the Humble/IGN folks don't communicate internally that well between the folks handling promotions and the folks getting games.

I don't really know, mind you -- just pondering.

You don't really have to think if Humble will give you $18 in games over three months.
Instead think if you want this month for $6.
You aren't charged $18 at once. You pay $6 for each month you buy. If you don't like the next month, it's fine. Just pause/cancel. You will lose the coupon, but it doesn't cost you anything more.

Bought with coupon, for the one game I actually wanted (Katana Zero), US$6 is lower than the lowest recorded price (in my region at least).

Redeemed Katana Zero and Ring of Pain, No idea what others (if any) I'll actually redeem.
