GMG seemed a little shady when they were first starting up, but they've proven to be a reliable, reputable and lasting company.  I've gotten some great deals from them.  Now CDKeys seems to be following their business model.  I've bought from them once without any problems.  How's your experience been with them?  Is there anything squirrelly about their model?

I've never used them myself, but people I trust have and report no problems.

Never heard of CDKeys myself.

Just keep in mind that I'm guessing them (like GMG) buy keys via other countries where the USD to their currency is weaker, thus allowing them to buy them dirt cheap. Then they resell them to you.

How do you think GMG can constantly offer brand new games at 25% off and such?

Keep in mind you're gimping the developers money by doing this, plain and simple.

That's only true if I would have bought it at full price in the first place.  Pricing is always a negotiation.  I want the most value for my dollar.  They want the best price for their item.  We make a deal when we agree the price is right.  In these cases, they get my purchase now rather than waiting for a sale later.  I'm also giving up my, admittedly limited, return rights under Steam.

If I want to support a developer, I will happily do so.  I've even been known to pick up some ridiculous collector's editions.  I'm looking at you my Homeworld remake Mothership.  Let's not even get into Kickstarter.

I do appreciate the input.

I've used CDKeys for a couple of things and the only issue I have run into is that the keys aren't always available at US launch time.
