Amazon gift card Meijer PSN card $10 off $50 coupon

Went back to my Meijer today, and my suspicions were true...they did have Kindle cards, but they were in an easily missable spot in electronics.  Decided not to go overboard, got 3 50 dollar cards.  They still have a ton of 50 and 25 dollar cards, hopefully I can resist going back.

 

where were they? When I went last night, I found the peg next to the actual Kindles, but the pegs were empty :(   Did you find them elsewhere?

For everyone looking to buy off people for $45.  I saw this on Fry's Supermarket digital coupon site:
 

 

Save $10
When you buy (1) ONE $100 Best Buy Gift Card

More Information
Limit of one coupon per item. Digital coupons and paper coupons may not be combined on the purchase of a single item.

 

10% isn't the best but it's still $40 off a PS4 (saves the cost of Tax in most states).  Might be able to turn them into Amazon cards too.

I found them on the pegs next to the Kindles.

Have you tried turning it on and off again?

I found them in an aisle with the kindle accessories. Thanks for suggesting to check in the electronics! I'd actually gone to two Meijers earlier and didn't find them up front and left. I called them up after you suggested the electronics suggestion and the electronics guy confirmed they had kindle gift cards in the back. :D

$50 Amazon gift cards are just $40 at Meijer (in store only, with coupon) through July 4th.

 

 

Just sign up for mPerks (Meijer's digital coupon website), clip the "Summer Bucks" coupon, go to your local Meijer store, grab an Amazon Kindle gift card (in the electronics section), and head to the checkout (use the self-checkout...it's way easier).

 

I've been taking advantage of this for a few years purchasing $50 PSN cards for $40, but didn't think of trying it on Kindle cards until now. But I'm glad I did!

 

 

How does it work at self check out? Please explain. Thank you.

There's an mperks button. You click on that. It asks you for your phone number, and then your pin number on the credit card swipe machine.

 

You're going to input the phone number and pin that is linked to your mperks account, not your credit card pin number.

 

After it registers, just scan your card, click finish and pay, that you don't want to bag your item (the bag won't register the weight of the card), click finish and pay again, and then choose your payment method. Voila!

 

Then just repeat for however many you're getting.

I don't have either stores, so that's why I'm hoping someone wants to make 10 bucks.


I can turn your Paypal into Amazon for $2

How do I apply the coupon.  I printed it off, but I don't see anything to scan at self-checkout.

It's linked to your mperks account. There should be an mperks button right at the beginning. Just click on that and enter your phone number and pin number associated with your mperks account. After doing that, scan your item and it will apply the discount after.

How does this work?

I signed up and when I look at the coupon I see

Terms & Exclusions *No cash back. Limit one Summer Bucks coupon per item. Excludes: Grocery, Household Consumables, Alcohol, Tobacco, Prescriptions, Gift Cards, Gas Station & C-Stops, Lottery, Postage, Park & Entertainment Tickets, Prepaid Debit Cards & Reload Packs, Instore Businesses, Online Purchases, Licenses, Taxes, Previous Purchases, Meijer Extended Protection Plans and Bottle Deposit.

So gift cards seem to not be allowed. How do you do it at self check out?


Kindle cards, Xbox points and psn are all considered game cards and not gift cards.

It's actually all handled by having the cards shipped to the store, which can take upwards of a week after they're ordered. The store by me tries to order before a big sale like this, but they've had people come in and grab $5000 worth of cards at a time. I'm waiting for them to make the coupons exclude these cards because of the few people abusing it. As for them charging tax on the cards, it's up to the state and their tax laws, I know mine is trying to approve a 5.5% tax on all GCs and online purchases. 

 

I meant as far as getting them out on the floor that's the vendors responsibility.  When I worked there it was entirely off limits to even open the boxes they came in let alone restock them when they were empty.

Well my Meijer was sold out; hopefully they get some more in, or I may have to try the Meijer in the not so nice part of town.

What about Gamestop?

 

That is a gift card. Think of it this way. Cards located in electronics are not considered gift cards. Cards that are in with the section of cards for resturants, other department stores etc, are considered gift cards. This also includes best buy and gamestop.  At least this is how it works at my location.

Okay.  Well goes one plan.  I could still use Amazon though.

Yep, it's all done electronically. All you need to do online is clip the coupon and you're set for in store. When you get to the store, click the mperks button, enter the phone number and pin number you used with mperks,and then scan.

Nabbed $400. The store was pretty deserted so I opted for self-checkout. Took a while but it was painless. The stoner kid who was managing the self-checkout area was staring into space the whole time. Might go back and get a few more before the sale ends (presuming they actually have some left).

Unfortunately, no. I tried with a bestbuy gift card and no dice. It only works with gaming cards (xbox live, PSN, and etc.) and the amazon kindle cards.

Thanks for the heads up, just picked up $400 for $320! Now to decide if I want to buy a 64 GB touch or preorder the Galaxy Tab 3

 

on a side note, the tab 3 isn't supposed to go on sale until the 7th but the Meijer I went to actually had one of the 7" up for sale already. I was bummed; totally would've picked it up if it was the 8" model. Oh well, only another 5 days

I did this last night, me and my brother were pre-ordering Battlefield 4 Ps4 Bundles at $500 each on amazon, so i went and traded my ps3 since my ps plus just ended yesterday at gamestop, gave me 350.00 for it with 2 extra controllers and a few games due to the 50% extra coupon for renewing pro, then i went to meijer and bought $625 worth of amazon for $500 for him and $275 in amazon for $220.

 

We went on amazon and for the same $500 BF4 PS4 bundle we bought the Bf4 PS4 bundles with a extra controller and Watchdogs, Effectively my Ps4 Bf4 Bundle, extra controller and watchdogs cost me Thanks for the heads up everyone!

Two of the three stores by me are out of the gift cards. I'm going to try the last one on my way to work tomorrow and see if I can help some of you out.

I would be all over this but I have to pay tax on Amazon.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"
