Did you have that happen during the new calendar year? Somebody else mentioned the savings having reset just recently. Not sure if it was by calendar year or not.


Yes they scanned my card on the 10th so it looks like it doesn't reset for the calendar year. It might reset on the anniversary but that is not until April for me.

FYI for those of us looking to transfer GS credit elsewhere - my local store has begun selling Amazon "video game gift cards". After reading the fine print on the card and Amazon's website, it appears that these cards will function exactly like Kindle gift cards - they can be used for anything on Amazon.com. I do not believe these are leftover from the Kindle promotion as they are a different kind of gift card. I've to about $150 in credit and am out today looking to buy a few games to sell on Amazon or eBay to make a profit or at least cash out my credit. I will confirm the existence of these cards at other stores and if I have any credit left I will purchase one to test it out and make sure it functions as I would expect.

Sorry if this is old news but I know a lot of us were hoping that GS would start selling Amazon cards when it was announced they'd carry the kindle.

EDIT: none to be found at a second store. I will be at another store shortly and then one last store this evening. Will continue to update.

My store has been selling these since mid-Decemberish. I bought one, redeemed on Amazon, and it's just a regular gift card. I think the wording of "Video Game Gift Card" is to throw people off? Maybe make folks think they can ONLY use this card on games, kind of like people who think Kindle cards can be used only on Kindle stuff.

Thanks for the info. I think another person reported that they are also selling them digitally through their POS.

Doesn't seem to be a universal thing. Three other GameStops I visited today had no sign of the Amazon cards.

"Thank you for choosing GameStop.com. The credit card billing information you entered does not match the information on file at your financial institution. Prior to placing a new order, please verify your billing information with your financial institution to ensure all information is accurate and up to date."

but I'm using credit to buy it, so I don't get it... anyone had this issue?

I get this error whenever I try to order anything on GameStop.com. Doesn't matter if I'm using credit, a gift card, credit card, debit card. I ordered something once a few years ago, and ever since then I've had zero luck.

So the double credit is still going? Man I absolutely hate my Gamestop.

First I went in with a $10 off a used game coupon and decided to get MW3. I get the nicest looking case and the manager of all people comes back and gives me a case so beat to **** that I refused to accept it. I asked why couldnt I keep the one I picked and he said they get to choose which ones to give out. I cancel my order but he scanned my coupon while I was cancelling so I couldnt get it back so I got upset and told him to cancel all 5 pre orders. He told me I was messed up for doing that but like I even cared so I managed to get more credit at best buy for that copy of MW3

Today I call the store and the assistant manager answers and I ask for the value of the 80gb ps3 and he said $80 so I asked if double credit was still going and he said no. So I asked they show online until the 27th so he told me they decide what promos go on in that store. I hope the store by me burns to hell.

Is the only way to know how much I can get is to go there or call? Looked around the thread for a while and didn't see the TIV for a slim 4GB. It's a Reach console but I'm keeping the HDD.

The Slim systems w/HDD preinstalled don't have the 4GB chip included and have to have the HDD in the system to trade it in. That's why there's so few used Slim HDD's in the Gamestop system.

Wow. Microsoft just couldn't make it easy for customers, could they? So, I have to move my saves to a thumb drive and then redownload all the games and DLC I had (if they are still available for download) so I can trade in for a new one?

Is it GameStops policy to hire arrogant pricks? I hate having to call/visit any GameStop because they always seem to talk down to their customers. On the other hand, the stores with female employees always seem to be really cool and polite. I don't understand why the male employees seem to have this attitude. I know it's not all of them but I'd say 6 out of every 10 male GameStop employees act like their Fuck doesn't stink.
