If anybody managed to snag the Hyrule 2DSXL, hit me up if you'd like to sell it. I know chances are low but you never know

How come no one is talking about the buy 5 pre-owned games and get a $30 gift card?  I bought three $1 games and two $17ish games for about 40 shipped and already got my $30 gift card and am applying it to another order.

How long did it take to deliver the gift card?

You got free shipping right? I did instore pickup for the $1 games but it's only giving an option to ship the gift card.

Is this online only or in store also?

I just put in an order for 8 used games but haven't seen any reference in my purchase order for the 30 dollar gift card? Does that just get emailed to you at a later point or did I miss something?

Obviously an oversight with the promo.  But I don't trust the parties involved (mainly website) to not screw this up at some point.  Probably easier / less frustrating to generate 20 in tc another way.

no, none of my orders are ready for pickup. one order was all shipped items and the gift card was delayed by like 20 minutes.

Wow, MVP! Bet they meant for this to apply to $9.99 and up games.

Has anyone gotten a giftcard in the last 15 minutes? Can't tell if it's dead.

Ordered 5 games for in-store pickup. $9.46 total and hot my gc a minute after order confirmation. Does this work multiple times?

Anyone else seeing shipping delays from GameStop? I ordered 3 games on 2/13 got a tracking number and still says awaiting carrier pickup. It’s going FedEx. I think it said it’s coming from New Jersey so I don’t see why there would be any delays there.

I've never really had much problems with Fedex, but the last 2 orders I did (I assume) are coming from the main TX warehouse via USPS, and been stuck in Awaiting Carrier Pickup for a few days now  :oldman:

I bit on one order for a few random $0.99 PS3 games I hope will come with cases!  O:)  Gonna have to spend that $30 real fast maybe?  :razz:

I’ve placed three orders so far and got 2 gift cards. Sitting tight until that third GC comes through...

Edit - It’s still working. I’ve placed four orders and received four GCs.

I got an order in with a confirmation email but no $30 gc yet. At least I got some PS4 games I can toss in with a system I plan on selling. :D

 

Edit: GC came through. Trying for one more order.

20 minutes between order confirmation and gift card email for me. Lame that pre-orders don't count toward free shipping when they're combined with cheap games!
