So is this a glitch or just GS being GS? Heh...I love paying $20 for new releases.

Too bad it doesn't seem to work with the 4/$20  :cold:

 

(Unless you just add 5x random $0.99 cent games... then you can use the previous $30 GC...)

I started getting the same thing, so I checked out as a guest after that, even if I don’t get the points.

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.

Damn this seems to be legit...thanks buddy!
Edit: just got my second order to go through and paid with the first orders’ GC. Should I go for the hat trick 🤣?

If you don’t pick them up...don’t show your name in that store.

Crazy, lol. Waiting on my 4th gc to show up. Noticed the non pick up orders seem to take longer to send the gc.

Added 3 $0.99 games to the cart for almost $8 to get a $10 GC. Pass.

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.

Put in a 2nd order for delivery and it's been 30 minutes with no GC. Hoping it is just taking a while. GC is in the order confirmation.

 

Edit: Just had to complain about it. I used the 2 gift cards to get SM3dW + BF.

They fixed it. They are charging for the gift card now. At least when I used my trade credit. They added the games, shipping, and gift card.

I did 3 different stores to keep it DL. And I'll probably just pick them up just to give my stores some good surveys.

If you would've added 2 more it would've been almost $10 for a $30 giftcard

Looks dead to me. At one point, I had up to a $20 gift card in the cart (but never a $30), but it took too long for me to find a non-garbage cheap game, and now the GC is missing.... Sad face.

Not sure what I'm going to do with 5 copies of :ps3: Last of Us Unmastered, but I'm sure the price will spike when the TV show comes on!  :hot:

Made 3 orders, 3rd order ended up not having the $30 gift card in the order confirmation. Haven't received my 2nd gc either. Not sure why i'm buying when I have a metric f-ton of games still to trade in. Some fresh cases would be nice for all the sleeve-only games I bought from closing stores. The games will pay for themselves in trade credit even if the $30 gc doesn't come.

So it looks like the GC just doesn’t auto-add when you put 5 games in cart?

Well, they did call it a flash deal. To think, this happens once every few months where they mess up their carousel of promos. They could easily limit the damage by requiring to a rewards account and allowing one promo use per account, per billing address. Or not allowing the gift card amount to exceed the cost of all games. So many ways.

Can’t imagine owning stock in this company. That Chewy guy must be amazed at this e-commerce ineptitude.
