‘World of Warcraft’ is on sale for $5 right now

You could celebrate National Running Day, or you could purchase World of Warcraft for $5 on Amazon and let your orc do all the running for you.

The game normally costs $20 to download, so you’re saving 75 percent on one of the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing games (aka MMORPGs). It’s the digital version of the game, so you can play immediately upon purchase. (After downloading, of course.)


Like most MMORPGs, WoW is a subscription-based game, meaning you purchase the game itself, then pay a monthly fee (around $15) to join the servers. However, the deal throws in 30 days of free gameplay for levels 1 through 90 and gives you all the expansion packs.

If you’ve been dying to see what all the hype is about, this will actually let you get a month of gameplay in at $30 less than what it normally costs. Blizzard offers a free trial, but it’s limited, and you’re going to have to buy the game anyway, so this gives you the full game to play with. That’s not a bad deal for anyone looking to join.
