Lol. GS reeled me in again. I renewed my membership due to the 10k points promo. I figured that I could use the monthly coupon on some “The Office” Mystery Minis (don’t judge). I guess the figures are now rare in my area so I got the last 3 in my store.

The clerk charged my renewal and one box on the first transaction. He then used the welcome coupon and the Dec coupon on the last 2 boxes. He had a bit of trouble but the total came out to $0. It wasn’t until I got home that I noticed that he used the Dec coupon but wasn’t able to use the welcome coupon and just put $5 cash tendered. I know he used the Dec coupon because it disappeared from my active offers. He did sign the welcome coupon on my receipt but the code is still legible. I’ll see if I can convince someone to use the code on an eshop card.

BTW, the 10k points posted on my account the following day.

Pretty disappointing "holiday sale" & weekly ad...  when the best deal that isn't even advertised is renewing your membership  :dunce:

I think I've read conflicting reports but does the $5 monthly coupon apply correctly to sale games? Ie bioshock switch on sale for $20 monthly coupon makes it $15

In store, yes. On the website, it's not always a given.

Has anyone gotten their $10 Immortals game coin yet?

I got the Immortals game coin 2 days after purchase. Then 2 days after that it dissapeared for no reason.

Hi folks. I know this has been answered before but info seems to change a lot with GS.

I’m thinking of signing up for Pro. Can someone confirm: You get $5 per month that you can use on eshop cards? Does it have to be in store? I’m assuming it’s a use it or lose it situation?

Yes to all. The only speculation you got incorrectly is that you can't really get eshop cards online using the code, just *some* physical items online.

I already spent all my trade credit Monday and waiting for 100+ games to be delivered. I'm now in a deficit to pay off the x1x and ps5 i snagged during the saturday fiasco.

I haven’t personally used it on anything digital, but pretty sure you can.  To anyone that can stomach GameStop, and have been getting stuff with these constant 50% off deals, Pro is definitely worth it.  Took me awhile to sign on too.  The $5 cert does expire at end of the month.  You can actually use it twice a month, once online and once in store if you write the code down or save the email with it every month.  If they are still giving 10,000 points for sign up, it’s basically free to sign up since you get a $5 cert upon joining too.  $5 more for physical game informer magazine, or free for digital.  Worth it to me for the physical, kind of fun getting a monthly gaming mag again.  Plus you get 2x points I think with purchases, and other bonus offers.  So, if you are spending the money anyway and use the cert twice per month, it’s basically a free $120 per year worth of certs and $5 if you want a year of physical game informer.  The extra points you earn would add up too.

thanks for the reply.  I can't find anything online that says 10k points for signing up.  Also, i was gonna use the promo 4 for $30 (14.99 and under) and of course it doesn't apply on the site even though it's on the site.

 

I hate GS.

Can you not use the Game Coin coupons online? I got a $10 one for buying Immortals but I won't let me apply it.

Currently on hold with customer service since they only sent one of the two MTG Jumpstart multi-packs I ordered (I only received one tracking number and the packing slips says there should be two in the package). Forty-eight minutes on hold and counting. Gotta love the holidays!

 

EDIT: I find it rather amusing that a company that sells video games can't properly loop its hold music.

 

EDIT 2: Two weeks for a replacement. After nearly an hour and a half on hold, I heard some lady talking to another in whatever language the call center speaks, so I kept trying to get their attention. Quite surreal. At least I'll get the second pack (though it was supposed to be a gift). At the end of the call, the lady said, "My name is...Joan" and I almost started laughing because I knew she nearly said her real name. She even giggled afterward. Gotta love call centers!

I can use some opinions since Immortals Fenyx Rising is $40 at GS now. It's easily one of my most favorite Switch games but I regret getting it on the Switch because of how awesome the game looks, so I plan on getting a Playstation copy but I don't plan on playing it until I get a PS5. Is it better to buy the PS4 version in the off chance that I do want to play before getting a PS5 and then upgrade later or just buy the PS5 copy and hold on to it?

 

 

Also, do stores that are closing honor sale prices or do their discounts only apply to retail price?

I was trying to buy Immortals and use my Cyberpunk game coin but can’t figure it out either.

If you are signed up for GameStop emails, the email they just sent a few hours ago says they are still giving 10,000 points for Pro sign up or renewal.  It had a link, but not sure I would trust that.  In store probably best, I heard others successful with that.

Do not buy an ubisoft game well before you intend to play it.  They will drop in price (and continue to drop) faster than most.

Okay, I'm going to sound stupid here for a moment...

 

My "Pro" expires on January 4th.  If I pay $15 now to extend it for another year, I should still get:

  • $5 per month ($5 x 12 = $60) in monthly coupons
  • 10,000 points ... which is about $10 in credit via certificates?
  • $5 sign up coupon

Am I right in reading this? Would I essentially get $75 in store value for $15 now, or am I misreading something?

 

 

(Side note: Anyone have an idea of how I can pawn off my physical XCom 2 for Switch for anything approaching $20? It's available digital for that price, and I just bought the stupid thing...)

It disappeared from my account today as I was waiting in line to buy another copy.

My $10 Game Coin for spending $300 also disappeared a couple says after getting it and Gamestops response for both was that they expired.

It's actually $75-$135 in "value" since GS's systems still allow you to use it twice.  :-

 

If you have a spare 15000 points just redeem the membership renewal cert... and no $ out of pocket!

Sometimes they're at the bottom of your Active Offers list rather than at the top. But there's also a bigger problem - even if you find the code, good luck redeeming it online as those particular coupons usually glitch.
