I went to GS, showed them the website print out, and the sales rep. tried to convince me that it was an online only deal. I proceeded to point out that the advertisement specifically said "in store only". Next, they gave me some stupid assertion that in order to qualify for 50% off, I'd have to trade something in. I was hoping that I wouldn't need to use the coupon, but I pulled it out and showed it to prove that the trade-in deal and 50% off were separate deals. I was in to get UC and the game controller packs. Left with just UC though, the sales rep. acted like she was doing me a gigantic favor even though UC was originally part of the Sony select collections.

I received a coupon today. Used it to get Killzone Trilogy, Journey, Jak & Dakter and Ratchet & Clank. Spend around $69 because I also pre-ordered Halo 4, in case I decide to pick it up during the week (as a Halo 2 & 3 Vet with MLG Experience and Halo: Reach & CoD Hater, I'm a little dissapointed that Halo 4 "innovated" by "evolving" Reach's system and copying CoD's Load out System. The only redeeming aspect is the just announce Competitive Skill Rank, but I'm still not sold on the game yet. If anything, I can always spend the $5 on something else).

Anyways, I doubt this will help anyone, but here is my coupon. I guess someone can talk their way into using it at a Gamestop. (Print it and take it to the shop, and talk your way after it doesn't work). Link: https://www.dropbox....Collections.png

ended up going to best buy and showed them a black & white print out of this page
http://www.gamestop....Vfc4JXIFptj0Zug

they honored the deal. bought all 8 collections for $120... that's 23 games for the price of 2 new games!

the funniest/saddest thing about this? i went to two local gamestop's first and showed them the same ad. the first gamestop, i showed it to a girl who said "yeah, we'll honor that" so i went up to the register and the 3 guys working there were like "nope they discontinued that"

then went to another gamestop... again, a girl who worked there said she would figure it out, but then the guy behind the counter was like "nope see how for example it says infamous is $29.99? that is the 50% off price" and i said "no it's supposed to be 50% off that price it was originally $29.99 to start" and he said "no it was like $40 ($29.99 is not 50% of 40)

so best buy saved the day for me. what a shame, i had 3 games preordered through that second gamestop, think i'll cancel them now and go to best buy instead.

good luck to everyone else... and while i want to say a big FU to gamestop, i still ended up with the deal, so either way i guess it all worked out. so, thank you gamestop?

I got a coupon and bought the last copy of Ico & Shadow of the Colossus collection in my area. Had no problem at all, they took the coupon I was in and out in a couple minutes.

Best Buy shot me down on a pm as well, and I have not received any codes from GS. I've been waiting for a decent sale on these and now that there is one, I can't get in on it. Off to Newegg for Jak and Daxter, and I'll just wait on the rest.

i'd still wait for tomorrow. a couple people have speculated that the deal will go wide to everyone tomorrow.

Its YMMV. It won't work for everyone and if you want, you can try yourself.

Meh, only game I wanted was Ico collection. Got that and also did some trades to get the 50% bonus.

I emailed Gamestop about this deal. Here's the vague, unhelpful reply I got today. Thanks, Gamestop...

Dear Customer,

Thank you for contacting PowerUpRewards.com.

“Unfortunately this was an offer that was not available for all customers. It was made available to a selection of customers who met the sample criteria, and we do not have extra coupons to offer. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused; however, we encourage you to keep an eye out for future offers that will be made available.”

If you have any additional questions, you can respond to this email; or if you prefer to speak to someone directly, you can reach us 7 days a week 8am to 8pm at 800-883-8895.


how is that unhelpful? u didnt meet the sample criteria, they don thave to tell you what that criteria was. maybe u dont shop there often, maybe u dont update ur games in ur rewards account. who knows what the reason is, and who cares.

If Game-stop has a promotion that Wal-Mart or Best Buy won't match. I will probably buy from them. But if it's equal they have lost my business. All three of those places are within a half mile of each other so it's real easy to just go elsewhere. Game-stop would care if enough people actually followed through on their concerns. I can not control what you or others do, but I do control what I do and my sons do until they are 18, and with that being said, Game-stop has lost my business.

I'm sorry that other posts have gotten you this upset at this topic.



lol again, they havent lost ur business. because this is the way it has always been. and dont give me this with enough people blah blah bs, people will still go. if not you, some ten year old. and your kids will go to and spend their allowances on used video games. btw, gs has been pullin this crap for years...still a very profitable company and i am making craptons of money off of them lol.

So you are saying that it is acceptable for a store can simply say that you are not eligible for a sale "just cause"?

Okay well I finally got my games.

11/1 I ordered 5 collections using Sony50 and Saver when needed (using the $5 gift card trick). The next day all but the first was cancelled and Sony50 was dead.

Friday I went to Gamestop after work and asked if they knew anything about the deal. They said no and I asked if I could price match my online orders that got cancelled. Hey it was worth a shot right?

Today I printed the banner and someone else's coupon and went back to the first gamestop. A new teller was there and after many pointless attempts at scanning and inputting the coupon (which I knew was pointless) he eventully gives me an 800 number for PUR customer service.

I played dumb on the phone (after staying on hold for like 10 minutes) saying that there was a problem with my coupon blah blah blah and was told not that the coupon was sent to random people, but that it wasn't meant to be sent at all. Anyway first gamestop was a bust.

Went across the street to bestbuy, asked if they would price match it, and they said they would. Spoiler alert, they didn't. Once my 4 unshipped collections were rung up the cashier was unable to price match to gamestop. I was looking at her screen and it wasn't a choice on the price match retailers screen (any BBY veterans able to shed some light on this?). She ended up getting a manager who told me they don't PM percentages. Great. I was so close too.

On to gamestop #2. More playing dumb more showing printed coupons and finally FINALLY I'm hit with inspiration.

"Maybe it's because I'm not a pro member anymore?" (I knew that wasn't the reason just go with it)

"Oh... oh maybe!"

"Okay, if I upgrade and it still doesn't work will you give me a manual override?"

"Yes of course."

Got my 4 unshipped collections for half off in exchange for going pro. Needless to day... YMMV.

That's just it. It's not a sale, its a coupon. They can most definitely limit the amount of coupons they give out to their "best" customers.

I understand the idea of giving coupons out to their "best" customers but some people have spent less than $100 at Gamestop ever, got a coupon, while some people (including myself) have spent thousands of dollars there over the years but don't have a coupon.

It's stupid to be sure but it's not like you're entitled to a coupon.

You did not read his post. He said GS has lost HIS business. And IF other people followed through on their concerns...blah blah...but regardless they lost HIS business. I think this poster no longer gives a Fuck if you or ten year olds want to buy all your "new" games there or not. He is beyond that point and has given up on the retailer

lol... nice... everyone should try this i bet it will work for everyone. places like gamestop are probably so desperate to get people to sign up for that (i worked at fye for about 2 years where they have a similar thing so i know all about that)

Some people you can't argue with. You're better off blocking them. I can, just, imagine if the ones who are yapping about the "follower's" comment of "entitlement" didn't get a coupon or didn't get in on the deal, they'd be out of their minds, right now.

I, too, have given GS tons of business. And, while I bought Journey with online with codes....just because....it would be nice to get that coupon for the 50% trade in bonus. I admit, I'd be p********ed if I didn't, already, own Ratchet & Jak.

My store didn't have Jak or journey but had Killzone and since it is a one time use coupon I want to wait until they get those games back in stock. Would be really nice if Amazon would price match it and then for whatever reason if someone couldn't use amazon to order them i'd just give my coupon out to one of you guys.
