I bought 3 using my gift cards. I did it because I seriously had 8 different gift cards from BB trade ins in my wallet and was tired of carrying all of them in there.

how is everyone exploiting the deal exactly?


There is no "exploit". You can rack up multiple free cards over multiple purchases. Eventually using them to buy Amazon credit or whatever you want, after you receive the physical card.

Thanks OP. One free gift card is fine for me.

When I get them, I'll buy $60 of PSN cards with them. Free money is free money.

Can I use a $50 RZ cert on this and still get the extra $10 GC?

Does buying a gift card (with actual money, not a gift card) count towards silver membership status? I am $300 shy of $2500 and this would be a great way to get there before the end of the year.

ALso I have $1200 on a pitch in card, what would be the limitations on doing this deal 24 times using it and turning it into $1440

Yes.

Nothing, but you risk the ban hammer.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Thanks. Don't think I will risk it using the credit, but will make 6 orders to get silver

Used my Pitch In Card to order 1. Would have done more but all out of credit and who wants to spend actual money? Thanks, OP!

Just spent all 500+ of my gift cards and made out with a nice chunk of change and it only took 10 min.

so purchasing (5) $50 BB giftcards nets $50 in bonus giftcards?

purchasing the $250 wifi Vita also nets another $50 in bonus giftcards?

so a wifi Vita essentially can be had for $150 + tax on $250? [applying the (2) $50 bonus giftcards]

hmmm...? is my CAG math correct?

Looks like they changed the terms from one free gc per customer per order to 'one free gc per customer'

Probably a good thing.

I got 2 orders in. Figure I'll always be able to use 120 worth of gift cards with all the games coming out next year that get a 20$ rz bonus.

Bought one for now. I got a free $50 giftcard from Best Buy after I never got my Gamers Club Unlocked packet after 20+ weeks and they told me they couldn't re-send those, so they offered me the $50, which I gladly accepted. Just traded it in for $60. Super cool.

BB has treated me very well over the years, but gaffs like this will put the nail in the coffin much sooner than later.

With all the rampant abuse, I will not participate. Good luck to the rest of you.


There are billions worth of gift cards annually that gets misplaced or never gets redeemed.

True, but the type of people abusing this promotion are not the type of people that forget about gift cards.

I'm glad they put the brakes on. I'd rather have repeated small good deals than one deal that gets abused and stops the fun times forever.
