Double Dip Deal(s):

Already bought the $39.99 PS Plus offer with one GC, and will likely use the additional $110.01 to buy two $50 PSN and 1 $10 PSN card to take advantage of the "Spend $100 get $15 back" promo on PSN going this week.

PSN Spend $100 Get $15 Back

Here's the $50 and $20/$50 Codes

New customers get $10 back on 1st purchase

A couple things were deleted because I'd jumped the gun. Bestbuy sells on ebay but not Bestbuy gift cards, nor the $45+$5 gift card pack. Sorry

 

Sorry if something's wrong I edit like crazy plus I'm at 'work'

They're losing PayPal. It'll still be accepted of course but not required.

 

 

What is gyft? When I have extra money and have already threw more then required at my student loans and contributed to my savings/retirement accounts I tend to buy silver and gold coins on eBay.  10% discount can be huge. Will I just got redemption codes i can plug in at checkout? Should I be worried that if I don't use them quickly they might not work (as in they would sell the same code to someone else?)

I don't follow... why would losing PP mean more sales on eBay giftcards? Are they just like... clearing out codes? :-k

 

And Gyft is just a online giftcard merchant. They're reputable, I've used them before when they sold Amazon and TRU giftcards at a discount. All giftcards you buy show up in your wallet and can be used instantly. The main draw to Gyft is that they're linked to some retailers and Google Wallet so you can redeem them without having to keep the code handy. And yes, they also just give you the code so you can redeem like any other code.

No $50 ebay gift cards are available right now.  It jumps from $45 to $100.  The promo code does take $5 off of $100 but it's not worth it for me.

Gyft is a gift card shop, they let you buy gift cards from almost every store that have a GC program. It's totally reliable and safe, i probably have spent a few thousand dollars with them and many times left GCs hanging in my gyft wallet for weeks. Also, they have a rewards program that gives you 2 points back for every dollar you spent when paying by paypal (credit card payment earns 1 point per dollar). 100 points = $1 dollar discount in your next purchase. Essentially, they are giving you a way to take 2% off every purchase you make with a gift card. It's little discount, but i'm a cheap ass gamer after all :)

Having the same issue... the code works on amounts over $50 but $5 off $100 isn't as tempting.

crap must be some kind of glitch or they don't have the redemption codes yet for some reason? It clearly says 10% off $50

 

wow there's even a discrepancy in the code

The $50 gc seems to be going in and out of stock.  I can't select it now.  Just keep refreshing and hope for the best.

Email or text. Instant delivery, but it doesn't seem like you can use it immediately (or at least I can't).

It is spinning off thanks to Carl Icahn, so a bunch of Wall Street mobsters can steal make a lot of money.

Great deal! Wish I'd taken advantage of the 20% off deal at EBay to stack these. Still 3 $50 EBay GCs for $135 isn't bad at all. Already bought the $39.99 PS Plus offer with one GC, and will likely use the additional $110.01 to buy two $50 PSN and 1 $10 PSN card to take advantage of the "Spend $100 get $15 back" promo on PSN going this week.

Dang, I bought one of the ebay gift cards but now I don't have anywhere to unload it. Was hoping to turn it into Steam cash, but Paypal only has $100 Steam cards left, and I really don't want to have to go pick up a card from Best Buy.

Gave this deal a shot, but WOW, I've not seen such shady fine print and pyramid scheme tactics just to get a $5 discount before.  I was going to get the 3-limit but now I'm iffy because their system seems so shady.  The crazy fine print that made me WTF:  "iIf you have not used your Gyft Card within 12 months from date of purchase, the card will automatically be converted to the Gyft-selected brand of the month".  So that basically means if you don't use your ebay giftcard within the 12 months, they can transform it into something random and probably worthless at their whim.  Its probably a scheme to convert to lowest-value whenever someone forgets.  This seems dangerous and even if I know I'll be spending more than $150 on ebay, thats more than $5 time hassle and risk.  Also their mobile app is buggy and you have to sign up for Gyft on EVERY RECIPIENT you send a giftcard to.  If they don't accept, they cant use the card or claim the code.  Just thought I'd share my experience for those thinking this is an easy $5 with normal giftcard behavior.

Damn we missed a 30% off ebay GC deal this morning, ebay has been killing it lately. It was a $15 off $50 code on anything sold thru ebay.

Yea I'm guessing the deals they make with those "top" companies are how they make their money otherwise how would they?

Stick a fork in this, it's done.

 

So sorry, we had to end the Father’s Day promotion early due to crazy high demand! Qualifying cards are sold out.
