Dumb question - can I use rewards certificates on Xbox credit?

Why yes you can.  I used (2) $50 certs yesterday (two separate orders)

Excellent. I know they explicitly state they're not good on digital content (at least the online certs), but in-store looks to be alright (sort of like how the $5 PUR certs work, I assume). Thanks!

ended up getting a series X from gamestop.com...the $18 release day shipping is pretty ridiculous (just chose to get it a few days later instead)

 

called my local store and asked if once i received the Xbox i could bring it in, return, and rebuy so i could trade my old system toward it for the bonus and they said it wouldn't be a problem...i just have to leave the xbox completely sealed until the return/rebuy has been processed....

 

unless i get lucky and snag a PS5 in a restock at GS it looks like i'll stick with my preorder from elsewhere...since i won't be able to trade my PS4 towards that is there anything stopping me from trading both the PS4 and Xbox One X towards the XBOX Series X i'll be re-purchasing in store?

Ordered $150 in Xbox card codes online a few hours ago almost entirely with gift cards and trade credit. Gamestop cancelled the order.
?
Ok, what should I be worried about?
Cards show balances at the moment.....

I've got an idea.  A semi more expensive membership that could give a better discount.  They could call it,  Elite Pro.

What are my options for trading in my old xbox one x and PS4 games with the current trade in deals? My thoughts are I am kind of screwed. Since there is no preorders available, I can't get the $200 for the Xbox. Although there is $5 extra per $5+ game, you have to put it towards a ps5 game. I'm getting a digital version. Theoretically, could I preorder all the ps5 games so I can get the extra $5 per game, and the return/cancel the game when it releases

you only need to preorder 1 ps5 game and all trades in the same transaction will get a $5 boost.

That's amazing. Do I have to put the full $70 down, or can I put less?

You can just put $5 down. Say something like "I want to put $5 on a preorder for xx and put the rest on a trade card".

Awesome. Im going to do this today. 

 

Last followup question. Does PUR base increase stack with the $5 extra credit per game?

if a game is worth $5 base, its $5.50 with pro and then $10.50 with the 5 bonus

If GameStop were to do a GCU type subscription they would get all of my purchases.

I went through some of my PS4 stuff that I don't play anymore and here's what I came up with. These games go for more in trade (with the + $5) than what you can get in cash selling on ebay. This might not be what you were asking for though and I certainly don't have a complete comprehensive list:

 

Golf Club 2019

Little Big Planet 3

CoD Advanced Warfare

Kingdom Come Deliverance

Lego Super Heroes 2

Horizon Zero Dawn

Until Dawn

Ok so can game coin not be used online? It doesn’t work on anything I’ve tried. Also, I tried to use two “coins” in one purchase in store, that didn’t work either.


Anyone know? I’ve tried new game, pre-owned, sale, non sale, digital currency. It keeps saying not valid. It expires tomorrow so I’m just trying to get rid of it.

Can we not indulge the idiot that calls himself flip god? There's around 300+ XB1 games and 500-600 PS4 games that are eligible. It's pointless to list them out even if you're being helpful. Let him fend for himself and check values on his own, especially if he's trying to flip.

I had no luck using them online. Ended up just using them in-store on Xbox credit (I had 2 and was able to use them in the same transaction on 2 $10 Xbox codes).

Don't.
Wait for Friday. Likely stealth bump. You're welcome.

Stealth bump seems to have taken place? Skyrim for PS4 went to 11, was 7 last week

 

Edit - just saw the last post. I assume this is all have to do with the Zenimax purchase.
