"IMPORTANT INFO to all who haven't received any $100 coupon off on a PS3"

First off, my 60 Phat Princess just recently kicked the bucket & went into red blinking-light mode. so I sent it off for repairs.
But while it was in transit, some stupid gorilla at the USPS package-bungling center smashed it beyond repair.

Plus now, I just got laid off this last Saturday, after 21 years of valued service to my casino, with no more money to spare, I soooo really need that $100 off coupon.

But after checking both, all my emails, & my PUR , I saw that I hadn't received a $100 coupon either, even though I'm a gaming collector with 35 systems & handhelds, plus 2076 games in my collections so far.
Plus the fact that I'm also a serious PowerUp PRO card holder that spends about $3000 yearly at my 5 local GS/EB store to further my gaming collections.


Soooo a few minutes ago, I called GameStiop's customer Service's USA number(877-676-4263 8AM to 8PM CTS) to ream them out for not including me in that $100 off coupon too.

But according to him, there's very good news for EVERYBODY(and including myself, since I have 127 PS3 games
now sitting in my huge backlog that I still need to play)


Anyway, here's all the info
that he gave me on this $100 off coupon deal...................

#1. Everybody holding a PowerUp card "Will" be getting a $100 coupon(if they haven't already gotten one).

#2. He also stated that since millions & millions of these coupons are going out, GameStop is doing a phase-in of these coupons,
a bit at a time, area by area.

#3. And everyone should have their own coupon by this Friday night (5/13/2011).

#4. Plus, since these coupons are still going out till 5/13, they WILL NOT expire till Sunday, 5/29/2011

I hope this news helps.


(Saint's note: And if you don't have yours by the 14th, I'd definitely call & find out why)

Mind if I ask where you heard this from? Also if you know what is needed to qualify. The 40% trade-in bonus peaks my interest.

From an employee of GS, no idea on qualifications supposedly they're picking people based on their game library. The %40 trade is just a normal power trade, I don't know anything other than that.

LOL, i would bite but i heard some reliable sources say it may not be back until AUGUST. I also hear at the end of may, and also heard from another reliable source that ANON and company are going to hack it the day after they put PSN back up..

the sense of entitlement these days by a bunch of snot nosed nerds that are mad b/c of what sony "did" to them.. smh. the whole ordeal makes me want to knock the living crap out of those low life scum hackers.. pathetic parents basement living nerds!

jumps off soapbox*

haha maybe I'm wrong, i hope so!

But regardless, I'm tired of being lied to. sony said "a few days" then they said "a few days" then they.. you get the idea. I think they've known all along this was deep $hit

I'm not in Canada so I'm going to hold out till tomorrow to see whether it works in the states, either way the links posted talk about trading in old ps3's towards a new one which is not what I was told the offer would be.

I hate to say this but IMHO Sony should have saw this coming and prepared thereself better. 1st, Linux is put on PS3 as a firmware. 2nd, GeoHots jailbreaks a PS3 and gets sued but Sony later drops the charges and lets him off. Now Anonymous hacks the PSN and shuts it down. Sony you should have read the warning signs and prepared yourself better. Now look at the mess you are in. Im sorry but that is how I feel. I hope the Welcome Back Program will be worth the down time but I highly doubt it will be.

No it's a brand new one. Select PUR members will be receiving these on their PUR account starting tomorrow 5/9.

It will not be only Canada only, we got emails about this it will be company wide for PUR members.

They did not specify as to what the qualifications are as to who get these coupons. It's going to be completely random just like the $25 off Move Bundle was last week.

That wasn't random, was it? I thought everyone got that coupon.

That's a good price considering many people still haven't upgraded yet...

This title is a little confusing...from the links provided, it sounds like they're going to be giving $200 TIV for an old PS3 towards a new one. Not a bad promo, but not unprecedented. Anyway, where does the $100 off in the title come from? Should it either read "$200 off a new PS3 w/ trade" or "$100 PS3 w/ trade in of old ps3" ?

This thread is crazy. $100 off, $200 off, $200 off with trade in, Canada only, nationwide, random PUR members. Not really sure what the deal is and I have no idea what the heck is going on, but I'll stay tuned.

On a side note, if there is a good trade in going on with this deal, with wonky PSN still down, could I still backup every bit of my PS3 data, safely clear my system and trade it in, then take home and transfer everything to the new system, or do I need to be connected to PSN at some point?

Knowing my luck I'll be picked for this promo like I was for the $25 off a Move starter bundle one. It sucks since I'm banned from GS cuz otherwise I'd try using this on the 60gb I bought last month for $60 and hope the promo glitches and allows me to just bank the credit on my PUR card I still have.;)

I don't think everyone did. Some people I worked with did not get it.

gamestop offering 200 TIV or 100 off of a system in America? No f-ing way GS is doing that. What would they do with all those old PS3's? Make super charged bundles, or is Sony promoting this to get everyone on a slim model? BS

how is it really an 'upgrade' frankly i think the old fats look and function a lot better than the new ones. The only benefit is a larger hard drive. And i think that you can bitstream true-hd on the slims instead of just through LPCM

still since my old fat may have died.. not sure yet ( check my thread here if anyone thinks they can help: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=294003 ), i may look into this. I am concerned about backing stuff up though

On a side note, if there is a good trade in going on with this deal, with wonky PSN still down, could I still backup every bit of my PS3 data, safely clear my system and trade it in, then take home and transfer everything to the new system, or do I need to be connected to PSN at some point?



+1 im curious about this too

Been looking for a ps3. Waiting for a price drop is all, with $100 off, I should be a customer.
