i can confirm this as well. i had about 50 dollars across to gamestop giftcards. I converted them to 50 amazon codes and the let was cashed out.

just to clarify this isn't a physical giftcard but rather one that is handled digitally. you pay to get a amazon giftcard code.

If you buy too many e gift cards, your receipt will screw up and some of your codes will get cut off. Trust me on this. Not very fun to deal with at all.

Can you tell how many is "too many"? I need to get 13, so what increments should I buy them in?

You only have one choice- $25. Unless you're talking about what quantity at a time. I bought 20 at the same time. They started messing up around the 15th or so code. Prepare to have a receipt that's a mile long. I actually found out later that it doesn't matter if the codes mess up because you can get the codes from your "digital locker" on the power up rewards website. Anyway, it's a hassle to buy them all at once just because for every code you have to click "agree" on the touchpad and then the guy checking you out has to keep counting codes to make sure he sells you the correct amount. It's no problem if you need to buy 13 at the same time, but it's slightly time consuming.

That's what I needed to know (I need 13 of the $25 codes). Good to hear all the codes are in your rewards locker though.

Thanks.

Has anyone gotten any problems with Store employee's doing this? Was going to check my local store tomorrow but I hate confrontation and i'm worried they'll make a big stink if they do have them. I'm hoping to use my 100$ Credit and 100$ in Gamestop Giftcards.

I just did it this evening with a $325 Gift Card. I didn't get any problems or hassles from the employees - it was straight forward and easy. A little annoying having to approve each and every $25 code and the receipt is about 12 feet long, but the employees were good natured about it.

I'm sure it will vary by store & employee though. Cause really we're trading Gamestop Credit for Amazon Credit which might make some employees defensive. I just said I was buying some as gifts for nieces/nephews and some for myself and they were cool.

I tried to buy the amazon giftcards at two different gamestops today, but neither one had employees who knew I to do it. I told them the giftcard codes printed out on the receipts like steam codes. At one gamestop they told me they sell Kindle credit, but not Amazon credit. The other store couldn't said they couldn't find the sku on their sheet or in the computer.

Should I just go to another gamestop and show them the receipt in the OP so they have the sku?

I'm an idiot. This whole time I thought "money laundering" required some sort of "money." The only stuff I know about money laundering a learned from Office Space, and Breaking Bad, and The Wire, and The Sopranos, and Scarface and Lethal Weapon 2, but what do I know? I've never even heard of money laundering without money until right now. That gamestop employee must be a criminal mastermind for figuring out how to launder money without any money. Watch out for her.

The guy at gamestop had no idea they were doing this and said at one time they were selling kindle codes. I told him they were digital codes for amazon and he said ''Ok, I'll look into it'' and sure enough he was able to print them out. He was worried about the amount of money I was trading in for amazon codes and had to call some guy at an MLG event to make sure he was allowed to do it. At the end of the day he gave me an extra $25 free.

You should get PUR points because they credit points for every POSA card except for GameStop Gift cards.

The normal 10 pts/dollar? If so, that's what I wanted to hear.

I wonder if it's dead or I'm doing something wrong. I tried three Gamestops and they couldn't find anything with the SKU given. The only thing they found was physical cards SKU that was for the Kindle Promo. It could also be because I'm in CA.

It's been confirmed dead by several in the Gamestop threads on the main deals page.

I recall seeing physical cards a few weeks ago. Only thing is that the cards were in a case where the Kindles are kept. I would think the cards should be able to be sold as the free kindle card promo with kindle purchase is over.

Went to both of my local gamestops. They couldn't find anything at the first one and at the second one they could only find the promo kindle ones. Needless to say, they didn't sell them to me.

I was able to purchase the physical amazon gift cards at a GS I went to without any problems. They had three $25 ones hanging on the rack so I would assume that made it easier for me to purchase since I didn't have to ask for them.

I traded in my Xbox on 5/10 and bought a $25 Amazon gift card. They only one left. I must have called 10 Gamestops around my area to find out if any of them have these Amazon gift cards but all of them were out. :-(
