Hopefully I can get this to work with Target cards cause I have a TV I would like to buy from there and this would help to discount some of the costs.

Thanks OP, I bought 200$ worth of Xbox gcs for 160$... all in one transaction, no problem. I asked a manager if it worked for any other gift cards not pictured in the ad and he had no idea.

Just tried buying some PSN cards, but no dice.


The store only had cards in values of $20 (no $25 or $50 increments) so I tried buying five of them for a total of $100, but there was no discount.  Needless to say I didn't buy them.


I don't know if it's because PSN cards are simply not part of the sale or if it's because they were $20 values.  If someone finds a store with $25/$50 cards, it may still work for you.

Only for the three GCs (Xbox, TRU and Petco) featured in the ad and must be in nominations of $50...  Won't work for two or more $25s, also won't work for one or more $100, must be $50 exact.

Certainly works with two XBox Live $25 cards.  At least it did 2 weeks ago during the last sale they did.

Odd the inconsistency.  I went to my local store and couldn't find any $50 xbox cards, had them check in the back and nothing.  Nor were the associates aware of the sale in their circular.  She tried to look online for me and she didn't even see anything but the eCard in $50 so she suggested we just try the $25 denomination.  That worked no problem, the second card scanned as $15 on promotion automatically, and there was no limit so I got 6 for $120 same transaction.  The only thing I can think to add is I let her sign me up for thier loyalty card since she had spent all the time searching and helping me.  Some retailers make you have thier cards to get sales.  Hope it helps.  Nice deal if you want something close to a GCU/Prime discount on digital.

anyone know what stores staples sell gcs for? also does it apply to all gift cards in store so long as their are 2x25 or 1x50?

I can confirm this does not work for 2 $25 ToysRUs cards. They were sold out of the $50 TRU cards, and didn't even carry XBox cards of any denomination. I hate Staples.

Not sure if I should even bother. Last time I checked the local Staples they didnt carry Xbox cards. I just saw MS store and PSN.

I can confirm this worked yesterday for:

Sets of 2 of $25 Xbox/Microsoft Store GCs. Bought $200 (8 cards at $25 each) for $160
$50 Toys R Us GCs. Bought $400 (8 cards at $50 each) for $320.

This was at 3 different Staples; 1 had the Xbox cards, 1 had only one TRU card, and one had a stack of TRU cards. Supposedly it should work for GAP/Banana Republic, Nike, and Petco according to an employee but I don't know at what values or combinations. I'm going to try again tomorrow for the PetCo because PetCo also has coupons and other sales that would bring a purchase near 50% off.

Now the TRU cards are a little bit of a pain. You can only use five at a time for an online purchase but supposedly and unlimited number in the store. So you'll have to plan accordingly on your purchase.

Picked up 4 cards(25$) for 80$ (Xbox) I might go for 2 more tomorrow but not sure. I'm a GCU member and the discount is essentially the same although saving on tax is nice so who knows. I just bought them cause I know Xbox will have deals for Christmas(at least I hope) so an added bonus on top of that sounds good.
