While Gen Con has gone virtual this year the one thing that hasn’t changed is the many online sales and deals that are being held in its honour. We’ve decided to try and gather all of these deals in one place, a sort of virtual Gen Con 2020 Coupon Book as it were.
This list is a work in progress and we will be adding deals to it as we spot them.
First, I will mention that badges for Gen Con online are free. So you can go take part in the online con experience at no cost, sort of a deal unto itself (though individual events require tickets with an additional cost).
Virtual Exhibitor’s Hall
There is also virtual sale hall of sorts set up at shop.gencon.com. The store includes lots of bundle deals. There are also some exclusive items and fresh releases, which may make you want to browse around a bit. (The Gen Con storefront will be available until August 9th)
The Gen Con store is offering a deal on consolidated shipping. If you buy from multiple vendors, you can save $4 per additional item on shipping. Everything ships to both Canada and the US, some items will be available for international shipping.
As well, there is a separate Gen Con Merch storefront set up with official Gen Con merchandise.

|NOTE: We’ve also made a separate list of where to find Gen Con Pin Bazaar style pins to purchase online.|
|EDIT: Gen Con 2020 is over, but several of the sales and deals are still going (for example, the official Gen Con storefront is open until August 9th). Everything listed below was still live as on August 6th at 7pmET.|
