PopCap games is offering Bejeweled 2 + Blitz for free through Sunday morning, as part of a FreeAppADay (http://www.twitter.com/freeappaday) promotion. Bejeweled has been a $0.99 app for nearly a year, but was $2.99 before that. It was one of the first major apps to be launched on the iPhone, selling for $9.99 in August of 2008.

PopCap claims Bejeweled is the world's most popular puzzle game, and is a big part of why Electronic Arts bought the company (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/12/ea-paying-up-to-1-3-billion-for-popcap-games/) earlier this year.

Bejeweled is free on the App Store (http://appshopper.com/games/bejeweled-2) through Sunday morning. [iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bejeweled-2-blitz/id284832142?mt=8)]

Your best bet is to pitch TouchArcade, to be honest.

I got Bejeweled 2 yesterday and haven't been able to play it yet. It crashes each time I try to run it. Anybody else having this issue?

if only they'd discount Bejeweled 3 on the Mac App Store, or even better, release it on the iPad.

Ok I dont know if I am going crazy here or not but its Saturday at 9:17pm Pacific time right now and the game is definitely not free but rather $0.99. Whats with that?
