It was briefly mentioned in the Origin Sale thread as being YMMV, but I confirmed that GameStop carries $20 EA Game Cards and there is in-store signage for a $15 sale price through 4/1. I have not redeemed mine yet, but they state that they are good for any downloadable games on Origin, more info is at http://www.eacashcard.com

I'm planning on using this to purchase Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2, and some other Origin games that I've been eyeing.

EDIT: It looks like these can be used for physical games as well, and this is a great way to take advantage of the sale while using the GS credit many of us have amassed recently.

EDIT, 2: Some people have reported having trouble using a combination of EA credit and a credit/debit card for their transaction. So far, it looks like you can do this, but it must be split into two orders. Place one using just credit, and then you'll be able to place a second order using both credit and a credit card without any errors. I don't know why it works, but it just does.

This is kinda, sorta related, but hypothetically speaking if I were to buy (2) $14.99 games and (1) $9.99 game, would I get free shipping. Only reason I ask is because I know that you get free shipping on $39.99 or higher, but in the situation I described above that would result in the transaction being $0.02 short. Would they let it slide and give me free shipping?

So I can buy $100 worth of EA cards at Gamestop for $75 and use those $100 worth of EA cards (that I spent $75 on) to buy $200 worth of "physical" games from the EA store that are currently part of the 50% of sale? (i.e. Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, Dead Space 2, etc.)

So my OOP would be $75 for $200 worth of MSRP games?

I don't buy digital downloads... so I just want to make sure these EA cards can be redeemed on the EA store for physical items.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Hmmm, not worth the trouble to refuse shipping and maybe save $10 after a rebuy for games already coming. Too bad I didn't know about this earlier.

Yeah, I already ordered a few games so too late for me but that's okay. It happens. I was still able to use a $5 off code.

Great deal for those that get in on it.

"...I normally open every game I buy anymore...", "...since I ONLY usually...", "...because it's wasn't fun...", "Pretty much sure it does...", "Works always gets in...", "...I acually spelled the my user...", "this will help let more people see it as this more people see...", "You very probably won't...", "...wouldnt have good sales less often due to less competition."

 Please, stop butchering the English language. These are horrible.

Damn, no go at my local store. They have every kind of gift card imaginable but nothing from EA/Origin.

I wish Gamestop sold these online - hate it when you can't buy everything online that you can in a store.

Just checked one of my local stores as well and they didn't have them either.

Can the cards be used to buy Bioware points for the Bioware PC game DLC?

Thanks OP, just left a local Game Stop with 5 of these cards. Even if there is nothing for me during this sale Origin seems to have several good deals a year.

Scored two at my Gamestop. The sales rep didn't even know they were $5 off, but they were checking out at $15 each.

Can the cards be used to buy Bioware points for the Bioware PC game DLC?

I use them for simpoints so maybe? /no help at all

So wait, let me see if I understand this. You can use the cards on physical games. So that means I could spend $45 and get $60 worth of cards, and get Mass Effect 3? Or do Bioware games not count? Because if that's the case I'm-a go to Gamestop tomorrow!

Well Gamestop has just tweeted this deal so it should be official everywhere. I wonder if my store was just full of it when they said they don't carry these at all?
