Has anyone ever returned an item that they used a rewards voucher on? I redeemed a $25 voucher with points and want to return an item. Is that $25 just forgotten?

Most places, yes. Check the fine print to be sure.

 

BTW, sale prices are live online, but no mention of free older starter sets. That might be in-store only.

Free older starter sets is working, just got Trap Team free with Superchargers. No Nightfall on the website yet though.

Ordered a Superchargers Starter and got a Trap Team Starter free. Also did B1G1 on drivers. Wanted Nightfall, but didn't want to wait around all night for it to go live.

 

You probably shouldn't order any figures you want to stay sealed from GameStop. Every time I ordered figures from them, even Trap Masters, 3-packs, or more than 6 figures at once, they somehow just stuff them all in an unpadded thin plastic envelope, almost like a sack. The employees probably give it a good stomp before giving it to UPS as well since it always seems like someone dropped something heavy on it.

Also the older figures seem to be mostly shipped from stores and likely won't be sealed. I ordered a bunch of new figures from Giants and Swap Force plus some of the Giants battle sets and every single one was either loose from the packaging or re stapled although I guess that is mostly Activision's fault for using such weak packaging.

The flyer specifically states that the Dark Editions do not qualify for the Buy a supercharger starter pack and get any older starter for free yet the website advertises the deal on the dark editions and lets you add a free game to the cart.

I got a Dark Edition and Trap Team Starter Set for free just now along with two vehicles. Mixed and matched with TRU with their deal (and my Amex 5 off 25 deal) to get two characters and a vehicle. Kind of an impulse buy, but I can always return them later.

 

Gamestop:
Dark Edition WiiU
Trap Team WiiU (free)

Dive Bomber Vehicle
Jet Stream Vehicle (free)

TRU:
Stealth Stinger Vehicle (free)
Dive Clops character
Legendary Jet Vac character

I wish they had Nightfall online.  Looks like I'm going to have to try my luck at the store.

I think the flyer officially states that the freebie can't be a dark edition; at least that's how I interpreted it.

That is why I mention it. It works online with the dark edition.

Same here. I ordered it online in-store, but the freebie was a regular edition. Can anyone confirm getting a dark edition for the freebie?

 

Also, for Amiibo fans, several Ikes were still available.

I only planned on getting a couple characters but ended up getting 6 (and 2 vehicles) along with the 2 starter packs. Got it all for $84 after a $15 coupon. Nice deal.

Which ones did you decide to go with?

I only want the amiibo skylanders. Too bad the games say not for resale so you can't trade them to amazon. I went ahead and got the wii u version for donkey kong. Debating on the $60 for the dark edition. It looks like gamestop doesn't accept these for trade.

Got Nightfall and Splat, but can't find Bone Bash Roller Brawl, or her Tomb Buggy. Hope it's not another Krypt King situation, as she's been one of my favorites since Swap Force, and one of the few who remained useful even after the nerfing in Trap Team.

Went to 4 different game stops.

Not one Nightfall.

Is Roller Brawl even out?

Vehicles: Sea Shadow and Stealth Stinger.

It's not, there's one or two more waves.

I went to one and it two. Once I figured out that you have to match each with their own specific car I put everything back. DK and Bowsers good enough

That would explain why no one had her. I'm wondering about the Stealth Stinger. Since it's a helicopter, does that mean it can hover and do things the fixed wing craft can't?
