While this deal is likely terrible, it is a little creative and the rules are so wacky and convoluted that I just had to post it. And I quote:

"Save $10 instantly, and receive a coupon for $10 off your next order with any purchase of $75 or more! (Not valid on consoles. Online offer only. $10 coupon only valid on orders of $59.99 or more. May not be combined with any other offers.)"

So, instant $10 off of $75+ (works on preorders) AND you get a $10 coupon in your email, but that coupon can only be used on orders of $60+? Weird.

Code is NOJOKE. Is that irony?

Why does gamestop want me to spend so much money on their site?

I seriously never spend more than $40 at a time and that's only when there is a deal going on (B1G1F, B2G1F, etc) but don't see myself spending $75 online and then another $60 anytime soon.

"May not be combined with any other offers"
does that refer just to the nojoke code? gd10 and cag16 definitely cannot combine
or does that refer to the $10 off $60 coupon also?

if the $10 off $60 coupon can be combined with other offers, like gd10 or future daily deals, this is a decent deal
if not, this is mediocre

It's a crap shoot really - I've never had issues using their $10 coupons on top of other deals like gd10 / 20wii / cag16 / etc but other people have. Once I asked customer service to apply one that I just forgot about and they did. Big 'ol YMMV.

They shipped one of my games I ordered without a manual and original case. Per used game guarantee I emailed them and they sent me a $10 off future order code, said it had to be more than $10 but it won't work on anything I try to order, used or new.

$10 off the Alan Wake Limited Edition seems ok.

I think they're trying to confuse us into buying stuff now.

I've ordered about 10 or so used games from GS in the past few months all with original box/manual and CD is near mint condition so I consider myself lucky.

I'll def try to contact them though if that isn't so and use my $10 code asap before it starts not working.
