GameStop has launched a new daily deal promotion, aptly named "The Deal". In addition to a daily sale, this new section of the site acts as a hub for "other price drops, bonus offers and weekly ad specials."

Today's deal is Grand Theft Auto IV (360-Used) for $19.99.

Use coupon code CAG16 and your Edge card to save an additional 16% and 10%. Code SAVER provides free shipping on orders over $25.

GameStop now offers select used games with case and manual, and this is one of them. "This is a pre-owned game that has been handpicked to be in the best condition and is guaranteed to have the original art and instructions."

swapped out SAVER for PLAYME, added note about manual/case

Comes to be 15.11 with CAG16 and EDGE.

Not a bad price for those who don't have this game already.

so I decided to see what I could do with it and I got to the end but there's no way I can finish him off.

Coupon code PLAYME gives free ground shipping on all used games, no need for $25 minimum.

I like the idea, although not getting a case/manual would kinda suck.

I think the launch was the SFIV sale because that same banner ad was used just with SFIV pasted in.

I hope a few good games I dont have get dealed, and with bigger price cuts.

Agreed, buying used games online from Gamestop should be a little less like rolling the dice.

Cheapy, you should include this in the OP:


This is a pre-owned game that has been handpicked to be in the best condition and is guaranteed to have the original art and instructions.

Good call, especially since if you just looked at the little product box it still says that it's NOT guaranteed to have them. I missed the notice you're talking about the first time I looked as well. Thanks, I think I'll bite in that case.

I have never had a problem bringing the online receipt and game to a B&M Gamestop and exchanging for one with a case. I think they would be happy to do it in this situation (since all gamestops prolly have like 30 copies of GTA 4 360 used)

Anyone else having trouble getting the PLAYME coupon to work?

I get this message when I go to pay:

"The coupon entered will not provide a discount based on the current contents of your shopping cart. You may continue checkout without a discount or read the coupon description below and make the appropriate changes to your shopping cart or shipping method selected. Coupon description :
Coupon:PLAYME - Free Ground shipping on all used games."


CAG16 and Edge were applied no problem, but the shipping and tax would bring it back up to almost 20.

It doesn't seem to be working for me, either.

Maybe it doesn't stack with the promo for whatever GameStop reason. I'll try it on something not GTAIV.

Hmm... seems to not be working at all anymore, sorry guys. Normally I double check, but I got lazy this morning.

You're right, the correct explanation is probably "some GameStop reason", seriously. :D

If the code has expired, the deal is a little less palatable. Me no like pay for shipping.

Must have an order of at least $25 for this, which is what the original post used to say until I woke up and decided to ruin everything.

He didn't, the coupon is expired.

Unfortunately I bought the other games I wanted as filler with SFIV, so I'm hard pressed to come up with something I want to add in here.

WOW!!! Gamestop is actually giving us a 'deal' AND guaranteeing that the game will come complete? <faints>

Next thing you know they'll actually be giving GOOD trade values, but that's asking too much.

It only took them six months to catch up to Blockbuster just about on the used price for this game.

Although, between this and the 'temporary markdown sale' on Street Fighter and those other games, this may be a sign that someone at Gamestop corporate finally woke up and realized people actually like a real deal every once and again. Now if only they could drop the price on Uncharted and all of those Ebay priced 'rare' games they sell.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
