Gamestop PS3 HD Collection Sale (11/1 - 11/14)

Since the sale doesn't end until the 14th, I'm hoping there's still time for those of us who haven't received the offer.


I can't imagine some people getting them soon while others are getting them later. I'm guessing if you didn't get it, you're not getting it.

Does it actually say the person's name? I don't recall that being the case.


Probably means that they have a unique serial number, just like any coupon you redeem.

I think the issue is that it generates a unique UPC/code specific to the PUR account.

You may want to pre-buy some of the games you want then and leave them sealed for now. All the HD collections are low stock in my area and if you do eventually receive the offer, there may not be any left.


Thanks for the advice - I just checked the availability of the games I'm interested in, and they're all well stocked at the GameStops in my area. I'll just sit back and wait to see if I receive the coupon.

What Vinny said. In the first few pages of this thread, people compared the last 4 digits of their coupons and they were all different from each other. It's not a universal coupon code or anything.

Damn no coupon on my PUR account, why is this only exclusive to certain members?

boooooo I didn't get one either. I'm a paid member and have purchased plenty of PS3 games at GS. Anybody have one they don't plan to use?

Yeah, and I've managed to use my cousin's coupons, so it shouldn't matter.

I think it might be regional? I'm in IL and I saw a few posts from NJ and AL saying they didn't get it either. For those of you who got it, where are you guys?

I don't know, it's odd. Unless it's a way to try to get less active members to buy more?

I wonder if it has anything to do with the amount of rewards you've ever accumulated. I trade in more games than I buy from there, and have been a PUR Pro member since the start, and no coupon for me. I've accumulated a little over 30k total points there, which I don't think is really high, but not very low either. Who knows.. I hope I get the coupon though. If not, then I'll hang on to my credit and hope for some good Black Friday deals.

Yeah, and I've managed to use my cousin's coupons, so it shouldn't matter.


Yes, but my point is if a person wants to use their coupon, they aren't going to give it to you or else they won't get to use it themselves. I didn't mean that particular person is the only one who can redeem it.

Could somebody please upload that .pdf so we can at least attempt to use the coupon? If it doesn't list a name, then everything should be fine. The worst that could happen is the cashier would have to manually make the price change.

Journey is tempting but I'm 99% certain that it's going to be made available to playstation plus sometime soon.

Clearly, I am asking for one that has already been used.

I don't rarely even shop at GS anymore, thanks to CAG. Now I am reconsidering if buying their subscription would be worth it.

My assessment to as why I received a coupon is because I bought a PS3 Superslim last month during the 100% trade-in and it would make sense for them to want to promote Sony published titles after that purchase. If any others who got the coupon also purchased a PS3 recently that may be the reason for the triggering of this offer.

Now I'm not saying that they shouldn't have sent it to all PUR members but that's how I'm viewing it as to why some got it and others don't.

Live in PA (no coupon) and I actually work at GameStop. If I get the chance, I'll try giving them a call sometime today.

So maybe we should call ahead to see if this deal is live at our gamestop, I'm gonna do that now.

Use it up, and if you are willing, upload that .pdf for CAG users to try to use.

Worst case scenario: coupon doesn't go through; associate has to manually do price adjustment.

This is definitely not a promo for less active member to buy more. I'm the free member that hasn't bought anything in 6 months and didn't have an offer. =(

Went to store, Coupon works. The guy was like woa where did you get that. even he didn't believe Gamestop had a legitimate sale.
The 50% extra trade in value stole the show for me though. I was stunned how much credit I got for my old ass games. thanks Cags!

I too got a superslim during the 100% trade in and I got a coupon. If region matters to anyone I'm in Wyoming (yes no joke) :booty:

I will have a few friends check their accounts and report back when I hear from them. They didn't get a superslim console.
