I got the Meijer ad today and there's a coupon which says 20% off of PSN Cards, XBL Cards (whether they are point or XBL Gold Cards, since the picture shows an XBL 3 month card. You need the coupon and it's limit one coupon per family.

Those who have a Meijer can browse the weekly ad in their area:
http://www.meijer.com/home.jsp

Also, to let everyone know, this deal is NOT online, B&M only.

From what I also noticed, the last time I bought a PSN Card at Meijer, I did not have to pay tax on it, so you might be able to get a $50 PSN Card for $40.

I don't see Meijer doing that. I used coupons on PSN Cards many times there.

Thanks for the heads up. Anyone know if it's the same Ads that you can pick-up in store, or if I should buy a paper today?

I wish there were Meijer stores near me.
I was saddened to find out that though my employee discount works on Wii Points (a few bucks off, but hey, a deal is a deal) it doesn't work on PSN cards.

Possibly because they are like giftcards and not like traditional merchandise.

I usually see the same ad in-store. Many times even the employees just hand out coupons.

The Meijer by me hasnt been able to activate XBL cards for almost a month now. They ran out of $20 PSN cards about 6 months ago but somehow had some for the $20 card give away last week, now all gone again. But they do have tons of 360/PS3 games in the clearance area now under 20.

Yeah, I'm sure that is the reason. Wii/MS Points are at least a specialized "currency" so it isn't a straight transfer. Or somesuch.

In my area, Meijer gets a lot of business (actually, they came before Wal-Mart Supercenter) and takes away a lot from Wal-Mart. I greatly prefer the store. However, Meijer hasn't been expanding all that much (they are not really doing great financially I hear, but not as bad as some stores).

The Meijer by me hasnt been able to activate XBL cards for almost a month now. They ran out of $20 PSN cards about 6 months ago but somehow had some for the $20 card give away last week, now all gone again. But they do have tons of 360/PS3 games in the clearance area now under 20.

That happens at times. My first PSN Card at Meijer didn't work (which I blogged about and my story is all over the internet) because Meijer sold it a day too earlier (before SCEA could activate it). The system has to work to put value on gaming cards, or else they have $0 or 0 points on them.

Yeah, I'm sure that is the reason. Wii/MS Points are at least a specialized "currency" so it isn't a straight transfer. Or somesuch.

Well, MS Points at more retailers now have to be activated at the register to work (like giftcards). Previously it was packaged merchandise that already worked (where if someone stole it, it would work). I believe XBL points wouldn't work if they were the same as PSN Cards where you work. Wii Points are like the older XBL Cards.

Well on eBay I think you can usually find them for below face value.

There's also a 10% coupon floating around. Not sure if it works if you haven't received the message but it might.

You're right about the 1600 point cards but look at the 4000 point cards.

Not bad huh? The rebate would give you 10.4975 off bringing the total to 31.95. Can't beat that... the eBay 10% off coupon would make it even cheaper.

So which one do you want to pay $30 for? The 1600 or the 4000? :]

Anyone pick them up today? I can't get to Meijer and I only have like $3 in my wallet, so I can't get one at the moment. Sucks because there appears to be many SingStar songs I want coming, along with Soldner-X getting a release date/price.

Lowest I could find yesterday was $48(shipped), but I bit anyway with the 10% off coupon and the 25% cashback ($12)

I picked one up at Meijer today. I thought it was retarded how you have to pay tax on these cards ... I feel like I am being double taxed, as I assume the PSN games have tax included in the price?

I can't complain though, because I got a $50 card for about $42. I checked on eBay, and with the 10% coupon and cashback I could save about 4 more dollars, but I still bit on the Meijer deal.

Meijer had the ads laying out at the front of the store, and they probably had around 30-40 $50 cards and around 20-30 $20 cards, so they have tons left.

I might try to pick up more after work today, we shall see. I am hoping to score some decent BF deals on PSN come Thursday :)

They should NOT charge TAX on these. The PSN Store will ALSO tax the purchase, so you are being double taxed. I was going to pick one up, but I may pass now. I have GameRush credit and my credit is generally better than 20% off.

How can Meijer be that clueless to double tax these? They have to be activated, so you know they have to pay special attention to them when they put them in the system.

I believe Blockbuster is also double-taxing these.....so, Meijer is not the only clueless store.
