Alright im'a little late to the party (fucking sandy) but from what I've read so far this can't be done instore until next week? I just checked my pur and I had no coupon in my active offers. I really want to get in on jack and dexter along with the uncharted pack.

That's what I'm thinking. If you wanna do it in store the coupon probably isn't going to show up until Monday. I've had horrible experiences with Gamestop online so I'll wait to do it in store or go price match at Best Buy.

So what's the trick to getting 'Sony50' to work online?

I'm logged in, I've got the "You scored discounts on PowerUp Rewards Pro™ eligible items!" message, but when I add the code I get "Oops! Please correct the errors below to continue. The coupon you entered is not currently valid. Please check the spelling of the code and the expiration date of the coupon."

I know BBY is YMMV, but has anyone tried the coupon at Walmart? They're usually very good about price matching and competitors coupons

Looks like they disabled it.

Also, they cancelled my order that had a $10 gift card to circumvent shipping, so expect a lot of rage this morning.

Same here. Oh well. I don't think it was worth the +shipping anyhow so adding the gift card was only way it was worth it for me. Another deal will come through on Jak and Daxter in the future I'm sure so I will just wait.

This is just ridiculous. How can one of the largest game retailers in the country make this big of a mistake and make it bigger and bigger at every moment?

As a consumer, this pisses me off. As someone with an MBA, this is absolutely inexcusable and should cause a serious internal audit of each and every Fuck up that led down this shit hole of incompetence. Everything they've done has made the problem worse.

Please, Gamestop. Do something to prove me wrong. Show me you have competent managers and not just ruthless suits that bilk gamers out of money. I dare you.

Mistakes happen, fair enough to say. But I agree, GameStop has not done a single thing right at all with this promotion.

-Make coupon, but don't give it to everyone, yet make everyone "eligible for it"
-Make coupon not work in stores without override
-Say it was leaked early that is why it doesn't work...yet still leave the date on the coupon Nov 1st...which means it wasn't leaked early, you screwed up
-Put it on the website
-Have it not work on the website unless you figure out the coupon code
-Have it only work on 1 game per order which goes against what the coupon and promo say
-People order gift cards to get the free shipping because they can't buy it in store like they want to due to either not getting a coupon or getting a coupon but it not working
-Cancel said gift card orders to further piss everyone off.

This was/is a great sale which is uncommon for GameStop. I suppose they knew that and felt the need to make it horrible so it fit their standard MO.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Not trying to troll you but have you ever worked for a large company? I don't have an MBA but I've got two BA's and worked for several Fortune 500 companies in their Finance Dept's. They all piss away money and make what appear to be poor choices. Management lacks common sense and that's the problem with many companies IMO. But if deal wasn't supposed to be live yet, then situation is mostly not their fault.

I was going to try and PM at BB today but can't find any details on GS website any longer. Link listed in earlier post doesn't bring up details. Can anyone confirm or direct me to info on GS.com? Should have done this yesterday like I wanted to.

Remember, they also failed to inform store managers about this promotion as well.

This is a national chain. But their communication is worse than a Mom and Pop franchise. We know they're capable of more. I LOVE how they handle inventory. I actually admire that about the company.

But crap like this will kill a company. Or at least, it should hurt them enough for a competitor to over take them.

Here's some things I've noticed.


  • Initial reports of the sale show that you need a coupon to get in on the deal and not everyone who's a PUR member has gotten it yet
  • The site had SONY50 as a code that allowed you to purchase ONE of the games per order; now it no longer works
  • The site now lists that PUR members need the coupon and it's only valid in-store; also offers 50% trade-in towards said games
Another promo involves $50 off a 360 w/ 2 free games between Oct. 14 - Jan. 5; I received said message on Oct. 23, nearly TEN DAYS AFTER the promo starter. Goes to show GameStop is extremely slow with this shit.

Glad I used my coupon in store yesterday and ordered the two games that were OOS at my gamestop.

Sucks the code no longer works. Hope the code comes back and maybe they add it to in store next week for the rest of you guys :)

No worries. I know where you are coming from.

This mistake is big enough where someone should be packing their desk up today. It really is that big. It cost them money. It cost them customer loyalty. It was big. And it was public. And it isn't even fixed yet.

There is no excuse for consistent incompetence. If your company let's you stay on while you do a poor job, your company should go under.

And I'm writing this as I should be building a statistical model....
:roll:

Okay. Back to work, or else I might end up packing up my desk!

I actually didn't get a PUR card until recently as I don't usually shop there and didn't know they were free. I am actually surprised no one has ever asked me to sign up for the PUR card at the store.


B/C the free cards are a minor metric, while the Pro cards are what employees are really measured on. Many will just ignore the free card.
