Yeah this is what has me worried, my two orders are still open as well. You would think these would be going out by this time of day. I bet mine is going to get cancelled but i hold on to a bit of hope since they aren't actually cancelled just yet.

Just tried and Sony50 doesn't work. Still haven't gotten a coupon to my PUR, so guess I won't be getting this deal.

Such an annoying deal! The GS I went to had a really nice employee trying to help me out, but she was pretty confused. NO ONE received an email that day explaining ANYTHING, she tried to override it, but that wouldn't work because it required a coupon.

Freaken coupon, ruined this whole thing.... I honestly thought it would be one of those deals where you just scan the PUR and boom! Sale! But nope! Let's do it the stupid way!

I think the code might be dead now? Tried applying it to GOW saga and J&D collection(1 item on cart at a time) and didn't work for both.

What im playing: 
:ps4: Bloodborne

So I emailed customer service and here is their reply:



Thank you for contacting PowerUpRewards.com.

Unfortunately this was an offer that was not available for all customers. It was made available to a selection of customers who met the sample criteria, and we do not have extra coupons to offer.

Needless to say I'm dissapointed. I've been a loyal customer for years to my local gamestop.

Just called my local Gamestop, he had absolutely no clue what I was talking about. He actually had this whole rude "Uh......no?" attitude about it too.

Seems like a good time for Amazon to take advantage of this and price match and save the day. That's all I'm saying.

Tried to place an order for it as well. Worked for everything but Uncharted Dual Pack... the manager at the GS I shop at is pretty cool guy. Will ask him if he will honor the promotion.



No go in the store. My pro membership is up in 30 days, let them know I will no longer be renewing it. Not much else I can do than that take take my business elsewhere.

the cs rep transferred me to a supervisor who heard me out and immediately told me he can't honor the deal BUT heres a $10 off code for our website. definitely cool, reminds me of the days I used to call and tell them I lost my $10 off coupon code and theyd just give me a new one every time.

In your example it seems to make more sense that mom and pop, as you call them, would have better communication due to their small size while larger corporations would be open to these issues all the time.


Sorry man. i wasn't clear. The "Franchise" part should have been the hook. Often a franchises are just affiliated by name. In coupon books, the coupon only works at some, and not at others. Because they all have different owners, operating under a corporate franchise. Subway is a good example of this.

This is a top down organization. When is the last time you went into a Sears, Starbucks, Barnes and Nobles, FYE, or Best Buy and had to inform them of a promotion that they didn't know about?

Now, how about Gamestop?

That was my point.

If amazon PMs this deal, I will return my orders(assuming I actually get them) and re-buy from Amazon.

Why would I do this?
Because I HATE Gamestop that much.

Mistakes happen, fair enough to say. But I agree, GameStop has not done a single thing right at all with this promotion.

-Make coupon, but don't give it to everyone, yet make everyone "eligible for it"
-Make coupon not work in stores without override

-Say it was leaked early that is why it doesn't work...yet still leave the date on the coupon Nov 1st...which means it wasn't leaked early, you screwed up
-Put it on the website
-Have it not work on the website unless you figure out the coupon code
-Have it only work on 1 game per order which goes against what the coupon and promo say
-People order gift cards to get the free shipping because they can't buy it in store like they want to due to either not getting a coupon or getting a coupon but it not working
-Cancel said gift card orders to further piss everyone off.

This was/is a great sale which is uncommon for GameStop. I suppose they knew that and felt the need to make it horrible so it fit their standard MO.

This is probably nitpicking, but I'm not sure if this is true for those who actually received the coupon. I was able to redeem mine in-store yesterday with zero problems.

It's funny how I wake up and see 40 some plus pages from yesterday and see that Gamestop already pulled the ad from their website.

No matter how big the company is, Corporate already planned the sale or else it would of never been on the website for an entire day for all the games in the collection, its just being sneaky and deceptive to do otherwise after, everyone now needs a code? never said that on the page I went in and the manager honored it even thou he had no info.

Just went to Gamestop and the guy really wanted to sell me the games. He ended up calling Gamestop customer service and they told him that they would do it if the code worked, which I was trying to use someone elses so knew it wouldn't. Anyways, he said they told him to call the regional manager.

If anything, I'm just going to go to another Gamestop and hope they override it to a lower price and / or go to Bestbuy and attempt a price match. Hopefully BB doesn't see the coupon or matches it even though it doesn't show the final discounted price.

LOL. You serious?

Best Buy has issues all the time, I've even had to argue with them about things in their own ad.

Barnes and Noble I get a different answer almost every time about how to use coupons on their Criterion collection sale.

KMART Gamer (when it was alive, and offering great deals) also constantly had people reporting to this site about how the coupons wouldn't print, about how the employees were clueless, advertised new releases not even being stocked, etc. Hell the guy that ran KMART gamer basically had to hire someone just to deal with all the issues/complaints on the side.

Basically even at a top-down, 100% corporate owned store, if the deal is even slightly convoluted most likely the hourly employees will be clueless and screw it up, or they will be suspicious of you thinking you are trying to pull a fast one (when you are really just trying to act on a legitimate great deal you saw online). The only time it's guaranteed to work is if it's priced accordingly in their system without the cashier haven't to do anything about it.

MEANWHILE, ON GAMESTOP'S WEBSITE:

It's like they're intentionally trying to piss people off. "Here's this really good deal, but you gotta be a member. OH WHOOPS! YOU ALSO NEED TO MEET ANOTHER CRITERIA AND WE'RE ALL OUT!"

I need every one of the collections in the ad, I would have gladly signed up for one of the PUR cards for it, as long as long as the card doesn't cost much to get. But it figures that the one deal that makes me want to be a customer doesn't work.
