I just recently renewed my PowerUp and I got that B2G1 coupon with it. I noticed that it expired in November. I imagine if I don't use it by then, I'll definitely lose it, right? Why do they put such a short window on it? I signed up for the year, not for 3 months!


Yup, you do lose it! I renewed mine in July and didn't bother to look at my rewards fairly recently only to see that my coupon disappeared before I could use it.

Sorry for the lack of update last week guys, but there wasn't much to mention and the steal of the week sucked. New stuff this week, though, including an expensive trade in bonus (*sigh*) and some free tacos offer.

Also, $3 psn cards are back in stock!


^Not familiar with this, might have to check this out. My Best Buy used to carry the $10 PSN cards, which I thought were the lowest denomination of actual PSN card, but for some reason they no longer carry it.

A bit off topic, but I've been trying to collect the different artwork of U.S. PSN cards. I got the one with a red car on it from TRU. I got the generic white one from Best Buy. I'll eventually get the one with a fighter plane/jet on it eventually. I missed out on the one offered by Walmart, which had Ratchet and other PS heroes/characters on it because it was $50 card. I wonder if I'm missing any others available in the U.S.?

Edit: Just checked the Rewards catalog and there is a $3 PSN credit for 3,080 points. I would get that if there wasn't so much actual physical stuff I wanted from that catalog like the T-shirts, wristbands, figurines, and key chains.

Current SOTW is $10 off any pre-owned game for 6000 pts (25% off the original 8000).

has anyone else lost their card before / had to call in and have them send you a new one? I've been waiting over a month now for a replacement.... getting a little pissed that it's actually taking this long.

and has anyone else gone to a store that didn't have their system working so they couldn't give you powerup rewards points on your transaction? had to call in about this too, and they told me I'd get the points credited to my account but it's also been a month on that...

they have run b2g1 on bf weekend the last few years too, so you might want to use the coupon before then too.

I had to talk to the manager about this because I thought they were ripping me off too because of this. I had a $10 off coupon and I had planned to use the 10% off too but according to the manager, they don't stack up.

You can only get one or the other, not both. I found this extremely odd and maybe it varies from store to store but at least for my local store, they don't stack up.


Strange, the employee seemed to think I would get it before he rang it up and then explained the non-stacking after the system didn't give me the 10%. I suspect this was just an attempt to explain this rather than him actually thinking it was how it worked.

Looking back at my receipt, the powerup rewards did get scanned in; it has my account # and everything on there, but still no 10%.

So it looks like the system is not applying this correctly (assuming they just scan it and the system does the rest----which is all they've done in the past). I would imagine YMMV as to what employees would be willing to do an override if it's a system issue. Most will probably just read the "cannot be combined with other offers" clause on the coupon and assume that's why the 10% isn't being applied--despite it applying on other deals with that same language.

Cool. Thanks for this. Think I'm just going to pick the coupon up since I don't really plan on shopping there anymore.

Pretty awesome deal then. My friend was able to redeem it as well (two times) and got the same coupon. For those interested I suggest buying the coupon ASAP before they fix the glitch.

Sorry for the delay in updating the OP, again. I got a new job a few weeks back and things are pretty hectic around here. At least we can rejoice for a decent SotW finally!

Also, they've added a ton of merch rewards in the past week or two. Lots of t-shirts and backpacks especially.

And, my favorite, these Portal 2 earrings.

How much was the $10 off coupon the first time they did this? Either way, I think I'll finally use my points on these.

Gah!! I bought the $10 coupon at "full price" for 10K points a couple of weeks ago after pre-ordering some games. I could have gotten 3 of these at the SOTW price!

Great deal, confirmed coupon error as well. Used most of my points to get an extra $10 for the SOTW.

I also got one. Does anyone know if you can stack these or if you can use them on two separate transactions? I want to pick up Sonic Generations and Uncharted 3 tonight, and this will help a small amount with saving money on em if I can. :P
