I just got a B2G1 coupon that expires 4/29. Should I sit on it and wait for a stealth bump or promo % increase?


If there are 3 things you have your eye on I'd buy them now and wait until we see what they do for prestige day. If they do a b2g1 just return and rebuy them with that.

I... don't know? Kinda why I asked the question. It's either a coincidence about the name and stuff or not, and I'm not in place to actually know whether any bit of it is true.

I like how the only David A. in New York is obviously cheapy.

 

Besides, a million points isn't that much considering how much you can get by exploiting the check in on the app, right zsaber?  That's a violation, imo

You guys were on the right track.  GameStop didn't rig a contest for me but I did get this sweet ride.

Did you win though? Not saying it’s rigged, was just genuinely curious when I saw David A won and saw people tweeting at you

1) If GameStop wanted to pay me off, why would they rig a contest and not just write me a check? What's the value of a million points anyway? I'm curious how much I'm accused of selling out for!

Nevermind, I found out it was $1000. Weak.

2) I did not win. I don't even have a GameStop Rewards account. This reminds me that I should probably sign up one of these days.

It's $1000, which isn't that much, but it's enough to eat for an entire year if you order off the Dollar Menu for every meal. The health problems you'd gain would be luxurious to a starving man!

McDonalds takes GameStop points?

Yes, it’s a Supra. Lemme know if you want to go for a ride or maybe a trip on my Best Buy boat.

Don’t bother getting a rewards card. I hear the values keep tanking

A store I just walked into (prestige) had a sign up still promoting it. Could probably argue if they happen to leave up the sign.

Granted this store also had a printed page saying the injustice 2 in ad was a printing mistake and they can’t honor it ;)

2500 on Black Friday cheapy, and if it’s true you can only order $90 worth of reward certificates per day, it would only take you 27 years of Black Fridays to maximize the value of the points. But due to the inflation rate, assuming it matches the previous 27 years, would take about 50% off the value by the time it ends. I’m no mathematician it there might be a year when it’s finalky cheaper to just let them expire! #earlyretirement

My source at gs is saying that there is talk of shuttering a ‘portion’ of Gamestop’s and promos are going to be more ‘business’ focused. Whatever that means. ThinkGeek is failing and execs are panicking on the next big push.

What's GS's policy about returning items purchased with reward certs?

 

Do you get the certs back? Can you get the points refunded?

Don't know, but given that they act like coupons, my guess is that you won't get your PUR or certs back.

I'm still confused why the head of HR is EVP of ThinkGeek..

Stores are closing and notifying customers that they have "moved" to a new location when the new location has actually been around for a few years or longer.  Business focused promos probably means more of that 30/40% trade in towards pre-order of a game instead of the 4 for 60%.
