This is one of the best emails I could ever receive from Walmart:

So, I got not 1, but 2 copies of Alan Wake for $49.96 + a $10 eGift card. Incredible. This raised the question: What do I do with that second copy of Alan?
1. Sell it to recover the cost of the copy I paid for, essentially getting Alan Wake for free?
2. Give / Trade / Sell at reduced price to a friend in exchange for a massive IOU of some form?
3. Offer it up as a prize to podcast listeners for winning some suitably crazy contest? (And I do mean crazy... I need to get $50 worth of entertainment out of it to want to part with my copy LOL)
Contraty to Silva's opinion, I'm not rich. Option #1 has the high lead at the moment, as that would make my AW copy free, plus probably take some of the edge off of the price of Red Dead Redemption. I will listen to compelling arguments for options 2 and 3 though.
