I'm fairly certain you could use it today. The reason I say this is based on an experience I had the other day with the professor layton pre-order coupon. The guy used the coupon without requiring that I preorder anything (because I have 3 other games preordered at that store already). All he did was plug in the code and it took the 25% off without the necessity of me preordering anything. My guess is that if they type in the code this coupon will work too regardless of whether you preorder or pay the whole thing off - today or next week. I could be wrong, but I thought I'd mention this.

I dont think these are that bad. 25% off a 55$ game is still 13$. Do that on 2-3 and even if you lose the 5$ down, you still made out good, better then the 20% off by $1 + change. If you like batman, even better.

I'm also pretty sure you wont lose anything if you cancel the preorder, or if your lazy, just wait till the 30-90 day timeframe is over and GS will automatically cancel your order and refund the deposit. Atleast, thats what my GS does. I just dont remember the timeframe.

god these coupons... oh well it is making me save money for all the good new games coming out this fall/winter! pass on this epic fail of a coupon!

Ghost Recon 2 is excellent. I haven't played it on my gamercard yet but I played it over at a buddies house when it came out and it was fun. I personally liked it better than the first one

you'd think they would have a coupon catering to the new ps3 owners.

(i meant deals of the week)

800pts on xbox live, idk bout PSN. BTW anybody going to GS please report back on whether you could use the batman coupon today or if you had to wait till Tuesday. The coupon does start today as opposed to the Madden coupon which only worked on the release day.

TIA

Just called them. You can use it today if you buy Batman at the sametime of course. Didn't ask them about previously having it preordered since that doesn't apply to me. Now I can get Ghostbusters at the price I wanted.

Guess it depends on what GS you go to. I checked with mine at Orange City, Florida and was told I can't use the coupon until I make the actual physical purchase of the AA game as they want to avoid people doing preorders and then never picking up the game:cry:

YMMV I guess. I was told I couldn't use it till the 25th either. Anybody who wants to use the coupon now I guess you'll have to do a buy, return, re-buy.

Can you still get the 25% bonus on trade-ins (towards AA) if you use this coupon at the same time?

I was just at both GS's at Chicago Ridge Mall, IL and both were running buy 2 get 1 sales. I don't know if this is nationwide or YMMV, I did not see it mentioned on CAG anywhere, although I didn't look too hard as the computer I am on is super slow.

Not a bad coupon considering B:AA is supposed to be an excellent game. I'll be picking up Ghost Recon 2 for sure at that price though. Thanks, jp.

I saw a dude use this tonight when he paid off his preorder at the Midnight launch. Hopefully it works for everyone else as well.

Nice.

I might pick up Condemned. Though, and I know the OP says it can, I wonder if my local GS cashier won't have a melt down with all the "complications" of having to stack my edge card ontop of the coupon ontop for the used game while stacking my edge card ontop of the discount for the guide ontop of my pre-order for the CE.

I just don't see how my local GS won't freak out and have they're heads explode from it all.

Both local Gamestops near me had complete meltdowns when I tried to use this coupon with edge. The first store could not get the coupon to apply no matter what he tried so I gave up there and the second store had to apply the discount manually to the used games...What a nightmare (in addition one store didn't even have Metroid Prime Trilogy that I preordered and neither had the bonuses...)

Used the coupon plus Edge to get NCAA Football 10 on 360 for $34.49 plus tax last night at the midnight launch. Once again I'm the only person who uses the Gamestop coupons at that store.

Yeah, the gamestop I'm headed to is pretty small...and hopefully won't be too full, to deal with all the melting of minds.

Thanks for the heads up too, btw. I'll let the GS cashier know he might have to manually enter the coupon first.

It's a fantastic single player game, and the multiplayer still has an active community.

Ahhh crap. Looks like I have to wait till the next time Gamestop actually puts out a standalone 20-25% off coupon for PS3 games, since I have like $40 left there from the FNR4 trade deal.

So I'm not seeing a lot of reports here. I'm guessing not too many CAGs actually tried to use the coupon ('cause, well, it sucks). But I had something similar happen. Except that it did work on the first game of the 3 I was buying. He had to manually adjust for the other 2 but did it relatively quickly. I got hosed out of $1 or so, though, since when they manually adjust that brings down the amount the Edge discount is based on. So, since they took nearly $10 off the other 2 games I lost about $1 in Edge discount. But that's not a huge deal.

Still, it sucks that GS put out a crappy coupon that doesn't even work right! :lol:

any chance you can return Batman: AA after getting the deal from the coupon?

I don't see why not, since they let many of us return Fight Night Round 4 after doing the 'trade 3, get FNR 4 nearly free' deal a bit ago. Of course, some of us(me) got a gift receipt just for the sheer purpose of saying 'I got it as a gift and I don't want it'. :D

Sneaky? Yes. But it got me $60 in credit for $25 worth of games.:lol:

Yeah just did this with the coupon, and the manager had to call up whoever, and then override it. The coupon goes through for only one of the games automatically...

Anyone else notice that www.gamestop.com goes to barnes and nobles video game?

Not sure if it is a DNS mix-up or did www.gamestop.com get bought out by Barnes and Nobles.

www.ebgames.com still works though..


Anyone else sees this?
