Missed this one I guess, SONY50 code is expired. Title of thread should be changed to note this.

Damn. I just went out of my way to visit a store and get a (free) PUR Rewards Membership card today hoping to get 3 or 4 of these collections. Was hoping this would all be ironed out today so I could either get home and order online, or go back this weekend and get them at the store if this magic coupon ever appeared.

What a joke. No wonder I never shop at Gamestop LOL.:booty:

I wish 3rd party titles worked with this. I'd so be down for mgs and silent Hill. The gow origins games are huge. I'm glad I bought a PS3 with a bigger hard drive.


I wish the coupon just worked in general...

I have a suspicion many of these collections will be part of Black Friday, possibly for as cheap or cheaper than this false-started 50% sale. I definitely wanted Jak for $10, but I could see ANY/ALL of the others that were $15 or $20 possibly being $10 on Black Friday as well.

So maybe we will still get better deals. All Gamestop did here is lose a bunch of sales to Newegg or Amazon.

Lame. The shadow collossus and the ico collection got canceled with the gift card. On the bright side, Journey CE and Rachet and Clank were shipped.
My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

I was able to get this to work by printing off the deal from their website. The GS clerks had to do it manually, which they didn't mind. Worked out nicely. Traded in a bunch of crappy games with the +50% and got Killzone, RC, and Ico for $5 total!

All of my orders shipped today.

Seems using used PS2 games as filler instead of gift cards did the trick.

Fuck dude. I just had the most extreme fucking ymmv in the history of fucking Gamestop... in a really good way.

I was trading in games and buying a ps3 compilation to get the 50% extra TIV. It gave me the 50% TIV boost automatically but the game was still full price. I was playing dumb and asking why the 50% off wasn't working automatically as well. The manager asked me to use my smartphone to look for the coupon code. I did and of course it wasn't there because I never got one.

Then the manager let me use his coupon code from his smart phone. This guy is the coolest GS manager I've ever met. He let me use it and I bought Ratchet and Clank, Jack and Daxter, and Journey for $40 total. This is also the same manager that let me buy 3 penny guides a while back (which was the only time I've ever been able to score a penny guide at GS since Assassins Creed 1 in 2007). I always get turned down.

Ymmv of course on your GS manager giving you his coupon code to use...

If I would have been thinking, I would have opened my games and given him the 1 month trails for PS+ as a thankyou. I also preordered GTA V for the preorder bonuses (poster and little viewfinder thingy).

It's too bad the manager wasn't the person ringing up my order because I would have preordered more stuff as a thankyou.


The 50% was not working when I went into yesterday and today. Crap.

Damn. The cashier might have had to hit total for it to show up (or whatever GS equivalent to "total" is. Maybe F8 or something). It has to be in the same transaction as buying the PS collection game, but you probably knew that.

Did you print the version of the deal that doesn't mention the coupon, which I have yet to see? I ask because I printed out the add from the website along with all the games that were listed with it, tried getting them to honor it at GS but they kept harping on the coupon thing, then tried to PM it at BB, which I still think might work if I go back and don't have the most buttass stupid cashier on the face of the earth as the only cashier on duty. Anyway, I didn't feel like making a big deal out of it at either place and the BB dude clearly did not understand the price MATCHING concept. :wall:

So anyway, if you printed the supposed version that doesn't mention the coupon do you know where to find it or do you have a copy of it. Or if anybody else knows where to find it or has a copy I would really appreciate anybody kind enough to share. If nobody has it, no biggie, hopefully maybe GS does it for real next week or I'm sure they'll be that cheap or cheaper in the future. :)

yeah this should just be moved to the graveyard or add YMMV or PM only. This never really was a deal, to tell the truth.

Just thought I'd post since I've been following this thread since it started, but I went to my local Gamestop and the manager called the regional manager and the Regional Manager said it's a real deal. Only, there's a catch, the coupon will cost you reward points. You can redeem the points and get the coupon and do the deal.

Well, after she told me that we both looked it up on our rewards accounts and neither could find the coupon, mind you the Regional Manager just told the Store Manager that she was currently looking at it on someone's phone.

So there it is, it's real, but it's real hard to get. They advised me to wait until Sunday since that's usually when coupon promos go live. The refused to give me the deal coupon as they said it's Corporate Policy not to do a price override of more than 10$.

Also I haven't gotten anyone else to PM it. So to those of you who have, congrats. Hope this deal goes live for everyone really soon. I have a few collections I'd like to grab while I have a chance.

This is word for word the same experience that I just had with my Gamestop! I went in ready for a fight, and before I said much of anything, one of the guys working there whipped out his phone and said, "you can use my coupon!"
I got Ratchet, Ico, Jak and they talked me into Journey too. (I would have bought them all, but already have all the other games courtesy of Gamefly sales.)
I'll be filling out the store survey an saying that they just saved a Pro member from quitting.
Funny thing was, the other employee there didn't get a coupon, so even among the employees it's hit or miss.

Some of you are just sore that this didn't work for you.
I placed four orders (Jak + $5 GC, inFAMOUS, Journey, and God of War) and the latter three shipped (only because Chase declined the first charge... but not the second, third, or fourth?) because they thought it was fraudulent activity having so many charges placed in such a short amount of time.

I got email confirmation of the three shipments early this afternoon.
I'm sad I missed out on Jak (though I have an 80 GB PS3 and all three games on PS2) but I only wanted it 'cause it was so damn cheap.

It was a deal honestly with the SONY50 off and besides this isn't dead yet because people still might be getting coupons on the 5th, however remote that chance might be at this point.

60 pages of consumer disgust with a retailer. How about everyone refuse to buy from them this Black Friday and tell them how you're tired of it with you wallet. Walmart will match anyone's Black Friday ad so get rid of your credit to best buy and make them hurt some this quarter.


Lol good luck....just invest money in to gamestop...used to hate them but they made me a TON of money. Now im happy to shop tyere lol

Awesome. We both got lucky. I'm very very very thankful. I have all the other games as well. I actually just bought Ico/Shadow of the colossus HD at Best Buy for $4.99 during an insane "Managers Special" sale. They mislabeled a bunch of games $4.99 that weren't supposed to be so I made out like a bandit. They honored the prices and did a manual override on 8 games (see spoiler).

Spoiler


At gamestop, I was thinking about buying the inFamous collection and the Killzone collection just for InFamous Festival of Blood and Killzone 1. Then I would trade in my old copies of inFamous 1, 2, and Killzone 2, and 3 to Best Buy.

I decided against it, but if this sale does come back on the 5th, I'll probably buy the killzone collection for part 1, infamous collection for the DLC, and the Uncharted collection for the part 2 GOTY multiplayer DLC.

I like Gamestop. I like Best Buy. I like Amazon. I shop at all three frequently. But this deal was one of the most widespread annoying experiences many CAGs have had with Gamestop.

I honestly believe that if you had very little activity on your Powerup Pro card, they send you the coupon. I have close to 70,000 powerup pro points right now.

I think they purposely didn't send frequent shoppers the coupon because they want to get less frequent shoppers in the door first. Hopefully they bring the deal back on the 5th, but it will be harder to find all the games and it will be much much much harder to find games that are factory sealed and not display cases.

happy ending guys after failing at another game stop, headed to best buy and managed to price match with the screen shot of the website, i think it helped that it was late at night and everybody wanted to go home, they never even checked the website ( Got Journey and Ico $26.91 Total )
