-Say it was leaked early that is why it doesn't work...yet still leave the date on the coupon Nov 1st...which means it wasn't leaked early, you screwed up
-Put it on the website
-Have it not work on the website unless you figure out the coupon code
-Have it only work on 1 game per order which goes against what the coupon and promo say
-People order gift cards to get the free shipping because they can't buy it in store like they want to due to either not getting a coupon or getting a coupon but it not working
-Cancel said gift card orders to further piss everyone off.
This was/is a great sale which is uncommon for GameStop. I suppose they knew that and felt the need to make it horrible so it fit their standard MO.
This is probably nitpicking, but I'm not sure if this is true for those who actually received the coupon. I was able to redeem mine in-store yesterday with zero problems.
