Ok, for those of you who want to know, those $10 off any item coupons DO work on any item. They didn't let me stack them at GS, but I used one on Sonic Generations and one on Uncharted 3. I was required to do it in separate transactions. It's only suppose to be one per visit, but the manager let it slide for me.

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!

Yeah well I bought the fucking thing at full price, then returned the game I had used it on, losing the 10k points and the coupon. I'm pretty sure 3 of my friends died after using these coupons too but I don't remember the details.

Can anyone confirm if it is in any gamestop item or just used ?have you try it and what does the coupon says ? Thanks

The ad says for pre-owned games. The confirmation page says pre-owned games. When you purchase & go to your active offers on the PUR page, it will say Any Item. You click that link and it is a coupon for any item.

Very surprised that this is working on any item, as I figured it was just a misprint on the coupon but would come up pre-owned only in the system.

I don't know where this "stacking" information comes from, though. They will not let you apply more than one without a manual override. You should be able to use two in the same transaction but ONLY if you are buying two separate things. Although this is still iffy, you're better off making two separate transactions.

Guess my store manager overrides it every time I stack them then (done it multiple times). They better hook me up with all the damn pre-ordering I do with them. 8-)

Fuck 2 points short of 6000


don't forget about kongregate, especially if you need just a few points, linking accounts, badge of the day and the mobile app are all an easy way to get a few points

UPDATE!

I purchased :360:Sonic Generations this morning for $25 after my $5 reservation and...2 STACKED $10 off COUPONS!

Now I had a situation familiar to some of you - I previously purchased the $10 any coupon for 10K Points weeks ago, then purchased the SOTW coupon for 6K. Whilie both coupons had the same exact graphics, text, and legal jargon, the expiration date and coupon code/bar code was different.

The GameStop employee didn't have any trouble scanning them or hesitation to, he just said "sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't." I did not ask him if two coupons with the same coupon code/expiration date will stack.

I had some credit left over so I used this coupon to pick up a copy of SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked that the store still had, all for $3.

...then I get home and realize that I still had 6042 points after buying the game!

Saving the next $10 coupon for a rainy day. ;)

I went ahead and redeemed my points for two of these Steal of the Week $10 coupons. $10 Off any GameStop Item means I will be able to buy $20 PSN Credit or 1600 Microsoft Points for half off. Considering the fact that my GameStop activity has slowed drastically in the past year due to focusing more on Amazon and GameFly sales, I think this was the best possible way to use them.

I have no idea what I'm going to use this coupon on. The last thing I brought from there was infamous 2 and that was only because I almost got 50$ from trading in la noire the day before it came out. They have given me no reason to shop there at all

I just got one and, yes, it says any one item. No mention of pre-owned. So it looks like it's still working. Now to figure out what to buy with it....

FYI the coupon that prints is still the $10 off ANY purchase. I just got mine today after my U3 points posted and I printed my coupon (which is going to MW3 Hardened next week.)

So I got a 20 percent off 1 pre owned game coupon for my bday this month from PUR. I already know it probably won't work with their BF B2G1F sale but has anyone else used one yet? Does it stack with normal PUR 10 percent off? And what should I use it on, dead island or skyrim?

I used mine in June on what I think was a $35 game and the history says I paid $27.24. I have no clue how that's possible, but yes PUR stacks with everything.

Also I think Dead Island is overpriced at $40 used. Amazon had it $40 new a few days ago didn't they? I'd wait till it was at most $30, or find something else.

Yes someone at corporate screwed up and the $10 off ANY purchase coupon is what shows up after purchase and prints out. This is a 4k point discount on what that coupon usually costs (10k points.)

Anyone know a sure-fire way to exploit this? Should I simply make more Kongregate accounts using different emails to get more codes or should I delete and re-download the app as well?
