Purchases using Edge card credit. I haven't used this thing you call a "credit card" for years at GS due to always having lots of trade-in credit ;).

I think what happens is this (and it probably happens with CCs too, but they are probably better about clearing off the temporary hold) is this:

You order multiple games and a "temp hold" is put on your Edge card credit so you can't instantly make another order or in-store purchase and rip off GS. Fair enough - usually, the games ship nearly right away and that whole amount of the hold is used to cover that. Occasionally, though, a game or two gets held up. For whatever reason, this happened with a new copy of Star Ocean International. It shipped a couple of days later than the other games. So at that point what they apparently do is re-charge your Edge credit but without releasing the original remaining balance of the "temporary hold". Like I said before, when this happened last time the "temporary hold" was there for a month or two afterwards so it didn't look like it would clear on its own in a few days like it should (or like they may tell you).

This is BS... I can't even get the 10 coupon to work on hercules ds. It's well over the 10 dollar price minimum. What is up with my coupon???

No codes this time around. The edge card doesn't even appear any more in the transaction. If I didn't work 12 hour days, I would call up gamestop tomorrow. Gonna have to wait till friday for a day off.

You know, something weird has been happening with my Edge card recently, too. For some reason whenever I put in the appropriate 12 digit number, it never works right. However, when I add an extra digit (a 1, 2, a, space, etc.) at the end, THAT'S when it decides to activate. Try that with your Edge card and your coupon code to see if it works for either. Best of luck, man. :D

Ordered three games last Friday, just got the code email last night...had two codes in it...so there's a little delay...games haven't arrived yet. Make sure you read the full email because at first I didn't realize there were two codes, I think the subject line alludes to there only being one code.

The text in the email itself suggests there's only one code too. But I had a similar experience and had two codes listed.

Anyone else take a peek at the email Gamestop sent this morning?

I pre-ordered both RDR and Alan Wake using the code provided for the previous sale, and in the email GS just sent, they have two codes for both these games to receive free overnight-shipping.

I'm going to call up and see if they can add this onto my existing preorder...

I just noticed Afrika dropped to 24.99 and is in stock used with guarantee of coverart and manual, so I bit using a $10 code and 10%edge so it's $13total, that's not too bad for my kids to have a boring nature game to play :) Better then them playing mw2 or nazi zombies :)

Has anyone else had a problem receiving the $10 future gaming code? It took me four emails to finally get the codes from the two LittleBIGPlanet:GotY's that I purchased. If this is normal I may skip buying at GS when they have these bonus future credit becuase of the hassle involved.

Can someone put together a list of all the games that were supposed to have the $10GC so we can know if we were supposed to get them or not? I know I ordered a bunch of stuff and have definitely not been emailed some codes I was supposed to get.

So I just got off the phone with a CSR from Gamestop regarding my preorders of Alan Wake and Red Dead Redemption that I purchased using the 250ff code last week.

After I spoke to him regarding the offer of free overnight shipping for both titles, he said it wouldn't be a problem applying said codes to my already existing preorder.

So for those in the same boat, I'd suggest going the same route if you want release day shipping for free!

I had an order that had two code games and SMG2. I got the two games (LBP and GTA:Liberty I believe) but SMG2 has obviously not shipped. How do they do the codes in cases like that?

I also bought GoW:Collection later and the code for that came in this morning no prob, but the only other thing on that order was Alan Wake SE (bought them together to get the 25% Off)...

Do you mean your getting release date delivery on red dead even though you got a gift card and 25% off?
I just talked to gamestop on the phone and they told me that the gift cards stack.
If she just lied to me i am going to flip cause I will probably end up calling them 3 more times to try and figure it out.
Damn i wanted africa.

Gift cards? Are you talking about the $10 coupon codes or something completely different?

The woman was looking at my order and i asked if those credits i was getting for buying the games could stack. First I asked for two twenty dollar codes instead of a 20 and two 10's. I said that was asking alot for me to have to buy from them 3 times to use all the codes. She said she couldn't give me the two 20 dollar codes but they should all stack.
I'm gonna call a couple of more times to confim cause i might have mixed up the words gift cards with codes but she was looking right at my order and should have known what i was talking about.

they most likely will stack on separate items, as in if you have 2 items you can use 2 codes, but even that might take some refreshing. numerous post that have said that stacking multiple codes on a single item doesn't work.

for your 20 code you can buy almost anything and it be a decent deal, but for your 2 $10 codes i would just say order cheaper items, $10 off a $50 game isn't much compared to cag16, but $10 off a $20 game is nice.

As for not knowing that the code doesn't stack; their are plenty of places where you could have seen it. It says it on the deal, it says it when you get the coupon, it says it when you use the coupon, and as a cag you have surly seen it here. Just because one girl working phones was misinformed doesn't negate all of that. Its still an ok deal, especially on a few titles.

I used a gift card when I placed my order a few weeks ago with the 25OFF code. I pre-ordered 3d dot Heroes and it worked fine.

According to the game's webpages, you should, but only AFTER the game ships (in like two weeks).

I'm talking about calling them to add a gift card to a pre-existing order. I'd like to trade in Heavy Rain for $30 and use that towards my Transformers order which I used the 25OFF coupon (got it for $50.xx).

Yup. Cept I had to use email. The lady on the other line said that "this offer isn't on the Red Dead Redemption page" and so she can't apply it.

So I emailed them and they said they'll do it.

I used 25OFF as well for RDR and SMG2
