If I buy a Cert now can I use it whenever? Or does it go into effect at time of purchase?
very dumb question I know but haven't used GF for a year

You can hold onto the certificate if you don't wanna use it yet

What happens when game gets lost in the mail? I heard horror storys.


I've been using gamefly for years, have had a few games go missing, and never had a single problem. Just told them when I sent it, they mark it as lost on your account, and send a new one.

Now, I'm sure if you get too many marked lost on your account, especially within a short period of time, they will assume you are stealing them and cancel on you. Although, to be fair, if you are losing that many games, you may want to start patting down the mailman.

Looking at my bank statement, I think these certificates may even be tax-free, while paying for your sub normally adds tax? Even better deal if I read that correctly.

Not true in all cases. I was charged tax for the certificate.

Yes.

You are getting two months for the price of one.

Say you are doing 2-games out at a time, which is normally $22.95+ tax (or something similar [ we'll round it up to $25 for arguments sake ]).

Normally, two months at this level would cost you $50. However, if you purchase the GC, you are getting two months for $25. You are pretty much cutting your bill in half.


But how do you apply to your account.. i'm autobilled each month

1080i is for douchebags

I bought 3 of the 2 games out at a time certificates. I have about 15 games in my Que but only one has been shipped so far (put the code in two days ago)

Does is usually take this long to ship the second game?

You go to "My Account" and to the left of the "Refer a Friend" Program, put your code in the "Redeem a Gift Certificate" box.

Read the OP. Yes, however, there is a limit to how many is purchased; but no limit to how many you can use.

No horror story here. I've been a gamefly customer for years - maybe two years ago I went through a nightmarish period in which I was both going through games quickly AND quite a few were lost in the mail when I returned them. I don't recall exactly how many it was over how short of a period but I think it was like three or four lost within three or four months on a 2-game-at-a-time account.

Bottom Line - Gamefly was very patient with me but finally said something like "look, that's it, if another game goes missing we are going to have to cancel your account." I ended up deciding to go out of my way to mail the games back from mailboxes OUTSIDE my own town. Strangely enough, I haven't had a game lost since then.

I'm waiting like yourself....I just bought one to see how "easy" it would be before I considered purchasing more. I see the charge on my debit card.....hmmmmm.

Glad I printed out the confirmation page, because it looks like I may have to call them tomorrow. It's weird that their phone support is only open for 4hrs.
WTH ?!!

Same here......this month marks a year for me, and like yourself, I see in my account it shows that I purchased a gc, and it was delivered. At least I know it's not just me that's waiting on the gc code. It really looks like we're going to slam them tomorrow with phone calls, because their "email support" system is a joke.
