I've seen PUR talk in multiple GameStop threads, as well as a couple threads dedicated to the Steal of the Week, so I figure it's about time we have a thread dedicated to PUR. I'll try to keep it updated every week with the Steal of the Week and any additional eye-catching rewards.

FAQs and general info are in the second post.

Lately the Steal of the Week has been garbage, and this week is included. 7500 points for a 50% coupon when 40% is already going on (in two different ways starting this weekend!).

The extra 10% would only really be worth it if you were trading in $75 worth of base value games.

The description is unclear as to when the coupon is valid, however. My guess is that it's probably good for a couple months. Hopefully someone actually wanting this will chime in when they redeem it.


As long as it lasts a couple months it might be worth it, but considering the fact that there is almost always SOMETHING going on with TIVs, It's basically only "worth" an extra 10% regardless of when you use it. IMO, that means that you'd need to be trading in 100 dollars worth of base stuff to have it be getting 10 bucks for 7500 points, which is not that great.


It might be worth picking up one and sitting on it for a couple months, since I think all of us occasionally hit up GS with a giant pile of games to trade in.

40% coupon they were handing out during the b2g1 sale (which I hope they let us keep, since I only ended up with 2!). There's a scan of it in the first post of the GS TIV thread.

You can get $5 off on a purchase of new or pre-owned if you don't have many games for like 4000/5000 points i believe, but the 50% trade-in is worth it assuming if you have a lot of games to trade-in.

7500 points for a 50% coupon promotion is garbage. I have the 40% coupon for this weekend and all I had to do was ask an employee for it. The guys who work at my local Game Stop are more than willing to give you the 40% coupon regardless of if you are making a purchase or not. They still had stacks of the coupons ready to hand out when I got mine last week.

Anyone know if all Gamestops are giving away the 40% coupon? I went to my local Gamestop didn't see any.

I noticed there's a $3 in PSN credit" listed s "coming soon..." since I no longer want to give my CC# to Sony, and I don't want to spend $20 at a time on a card (I just want some Neptunia DLC), that's all I'll ever spend it on when it comes around.

Needing to pay for a coupon? Who are they kidding?

That 40% coupon is good in the month of July. Right now, the 40% is good for E3 Titles. If they are giving you the extra 40% they are either reserving stuff without telling you, or just breaking the rules.

People have seriously got to stop supporting these "steal of the weeks"...seriously don't you see they're making you earn something that used to be free (and still is sometimes, they just had a 50% bonus).

The only thing about these offers, which if bogus, Gamestop drops the current trade in value to make you think you are getting a good deal. That's why I hardly trade any games into them...I recently traded in games for that Noire deal because it was a good deal considering I had cheap games. I don't understand why people still support these crooks...

I completely agree man. I think about all of the money I wasted over the years at Gamestop. I laughed so hard when the guy tried to sell me one of these cards....mind you I only shop there once or twice a year. Don't even get new started on their prices compared to other retailers...

7500 for this is a total joke, 5k max would almost be OK - except they constantly have +% promos going on.

I'd just hold on to them and wait and see what shows up. I ended up getting the Peter Molyneux-autograhped Fable III game which I thought was pretty cool, but outside of that it's been a pretty crappy selection..

The only thing about these offers, which if bogus, Gamestop drops the current trade in value to make you think you are getting a good deal.

If anything I think this makes the coupon even more valuable.... GS might shuffle their TIVs around when they run a big store-wide credit promotion but I doubt they would change them for a coupon that only a select few can/will get.

I'm guessing this would stack with the the extra 10% from PUR? so 60% total? If not then yea this coupon is (almost) completely worthless.

If it stacks, I might see what all I have to trade in, because if I can trade in enough to get me close to the points I spent, I'd be alright with the extra credit I'd get (all I use my points for is for the various gamestop coupons)

Of course it stacks with the PUR bonus. But in order to make up that 7500, you'd have to trade in $375 worth of stuff after bonuses and whatnot. Even at an extra 60%... that's quite a lot. Or $190 if you then immediately use that credit to buy preowned stuff.

Either way, it's a joke for the steal of the week, that's for sure.

Oh right, it's 10 points not 20 for trade ins. Then yea there is no way... Thanks.
