I wonder if this can stack with the $100 giftcard for trading in a PS3 or 360? That would tie the Gamestop PS4 trade in deal.

I don't understand, can I buy any Xbox One from anywhere? That would be a pretty good deal for me.

The code was in the bundle. You didn't seriously take a valuable piece of a bundle out and return it for full refund, did you?

But you left out the detail about taking a valuable item for keeps? "So what?" So unethical. Same thing as slipping discs out of game cases and bundles and then returning it. It's stealing.

Jesus we need mods to start banning people. Shit is getting ridiculous around here with stupidity and/or trolling.

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.

Exactly, it isn't free, it is included with purchase. If you return the purchase, you should return the items that came with it. It gets a little mushy with digital items that you can't return once redeemed, though. If you buy the console with the intention of keeping it, redeem the download, then decide that you don't want to keep the console, that is one thing - if you buy it with the intention of redeeming the download and returning the console, that is something else.

Also, according to the link, the $50 GC is specific to Microsoft stores. If that is the case, can the OP or a mod update the title. If it turns out to be multiple retailers (sometimes these things start out just listing one, but end up being pretty widespread), you can change it back.

Major Nelson also posted on his blog that Sep. 7 through the 13 that you would get a free retail disc game upto 59.99 in value at participating retailers... I am willing to bet the Microsoft Store is one of them ;)

 

EDIT: With the purchase of an Xbox One console, Titanfall Bundle, etc... Included. Not valid toward preorders though

It's no different than shoplifting. You're just doing it in a sneakier way. I hope you never have to raise kids. Jesus.

Lots of people view "gamers" as the dregs of society, that guy gives them exhibit a.

If this stacks with the free game offer from Microsoftstore's it seems like it would be a very good time to buy an Xbox One.

Get the Madden or Forza 5 bundle for $400/$500 and you can then get a free game and a $50 Xbox Card. Would end up making the systems roughly $300/$400 after you value the items and you'll also have the Madden/Forza code you can sell.

Had a friend out in KC try this at the Microsoft store not too long ago and the store manager wasn't aware of the $50 GC.
Traded in his PS3 and is holding off till Tuesday for a free game.
BTW he was told the $50 GC is not through the MS store.
