This looks to be a coupon all Power up rewards *PRO* members will receive some time in the next few days. It will be valid from 8-30 to 9-2. To be clear you WILL nee to be a PRO member to receive this, this is not the coupon for renewing, merely a coupon going out to ALL pro members, and will be good for the small time period.

It is mentioned in the "Xtra Points" section of the poweruprewards.com website, and a survey can be done regarding your interest in it, although it is not mandatory from what I can tell.

Nice!  Thanks, OP.  Hopefully I can have great luck like last time I used one, but they'd have to run their 50% bonus trade-in again simultaneously for that to happen.

Had some discussion on this in the Gamestop trade thread earlier.  Here's the shot I uploaded of the details:

Trade and sale prices are going to fluctuate so probably won't know until Monday what the best options are going to be for maximizing value.  My fall back plan is to get two copies of Pokemon Black V2 and a copy of White V2 (to go with the copy of White V2 I already have) working out to about $20 a game.  Then will use them towards the trade two offer since there's not a lot of other good GS to GS trades at the moment and that one probably won't change by the time the coupon's good.

Yeah but I mean that pretty much just cashes out the coupon at $10 or so. If you plan it right, it comes out to 43% (before the 10% from PRO, which also stacks) off three games, and if you can't figure out some games to pickup on the cheap, you are nuts.

How many times are you going to do that trade 2 promo? Your relentless. Im scared to even do it a second time and return the game. I get these ugly looks on returns.

How are you seeing this?

 

It's targeted advertising/market research so not everyone gets Xtra Point offers or even the same ones.

Well $15 on three games.  Hoping something else comes up that's better but that's my backup plan.  There's really nothing that I want and don't have right now that would be worth using it on.  My backlog's grown from out of control to just plain stupid with the 3 for $10 sale.  With the PS4 coming up and about to drop $400 of credit on it I would rather build more credit than buy games that I won't play until they're $10.

Already done it four times this week and other than today with someone I don't usually deal with haven't had any issues.  These would probably be the last times though since that pretty much exhausts the games currently on the list that I haven't traded and are easier to get a hold of at a reasonable price.

For the longest time I only saw the exact same thing, but it has since changed for me within the last month around two weeks ago. So you mostly are just missing little 10 point surveys, but this seemed to have popped up recently (today?). It is essentially a survery asking if you are planning to take advantage of it, what your favorite perk of PUR Pro is, ETC. But it seems to be a PRO exclusive offer, and I would ASSUME go out to everyone.

No, it's real.  The employee at the store I was at today knew it was upcoming and said he thinks they're getting signage in for it.

It should.  Probably will go out right before the sale starts.

Cool. I'm impressed that they are doing signage to promote a coupon that shows up in the poweruprewards account. I guess it's a good reason to get people to subscribe.

 

Do you guys think the coupons will be unique barcodes like that Playstation collection coupon a while back that only certain people got? Or do you think it will be a generic barcode like the infamous b-day coupon?

There might not be signage, he was just saying that he believed that they were.

 

They will be unique barcodes since it's going to go out to your PUR account and be one use.  This would be a cray cray sale otherwise.

Even if it did that's a huge waste, just send me the coupon instead and I'll give you $3.

I can buy games now to secure them, and then return/buy with this promo, right?

 

Also, how would we stack the birthday coupon with this? Does it have to be a different price for the most expensive or can they all be the same or?

Pretty much this. I need place holders for Saints Row 4 (2 copies), can i buy 3 copies of TLOU, and then just exchange them later on for SR 4. I need tonite the bday coupon and my PUR points.,

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"
