Will using a rewards certificate override any other deals/discounts?

Example:
Nier Replicant (New) & Sekiro (Pre-owned) gets the 20% off on Sekiro (approx. $80 total)

If I apply a $10 online only rewards certificate, will that drop the total down or wipe out the promotion?

Wipe. There’s no stacking for codes and promos, as programmed on the site.

I could be wrong. It works in store however as the code gets applied to the new game and doesn’t interfere with the 30%.

Any commonly "Available for pickup" $5 item suggestions ( even toys / shirts / hats ) to consume the online $5 monthly cert on?

I did a Bowser Jr. amiibo this month.  A couple of stores near me had >1 that showed up online.

(already used in-store) Didn't find anything I wanted to actually buy online this month and digital currency doesn't seem to qualify in cart... I don't really want to pickup a copy of The Division, even if it's free.  :oldman:  

If you were going to go in the store anyway for pickup, you might as well get digital currency.  Digital currency works in-store.  I always get a $5 eShop code if I haven't used it yet and the month is ending

Can you still stack a $5 monthly cert with $5 rewards cert in store?

How long does it take for the bonuses from the renewal on Saturday to show up? Points take forever to arrive for me. I have an order I did on 22nd and points haven't shown up yet.

I think it took around a week last year. I remember because I was convinced it wasn’t coming, contacted support, they gave me points, and then the promo points showed up a day later.

Heh that's what I did last month already, so might do Bowser (Sr) Smash for the same price.. problem is I already have him. Monster Hunter amiibos still not available for pickup.  :oldman:

I've found I need to use my V2s in-store first to dip²  :bomb:

Interesting, I haven't gotten to that step yet but may find out!

Website is already showing renewal points for me from Saturday, 10,000 bonus plus the regular 300. The App does not show the points yet, but I feel like the app is really slow to update

Speaking of points, I traded 5 games and bought a game in the same transaction Saturday.  As a result, I received no (0) points for the transaction.  

 

I haven't received points for trades (in Cali) since 2019 began, and buying a game in the same transaction as  a trade still cancels out the points you should receive for a purchase.  

 

Of course whenever I mention this to an associate it's like asking them what NASA is serving for lunch on Mars today.

Is it strange to say that I have no desire to trade games during the 50% extra promo? I just bought quite a few games and want to actually play them to see if I want to keep them or not. I'm kinda burned out on buying games only to turn around and trade them in right away.

 

Edit: grammar typos

If you were to get a 4.99 game, then buy a warranty and it'll go through.

XBox or Nintendo credit as they can print a $5 code on your receipt.

 

Edit: You have to go into a store to use the coupon, you can't use it on a website order.

Depends how you feel about the games. I realized I had bought so many games last year through GS/other means that it actually completely ruined my interest in playing video games, especially since I have Gamepass because I had so many options. I've been in the process of selling/trading in the ones I have played/are far down my list to play and it feels much better not being weighted down having so many options.

There are a few games I feel like I won't get to anytime soon or have had for a while and still haven't played yet. I'll take a look at everything I have and go from there. Chances are I'll have a decent handful of games I want to trade.

 

Edit: Scratch the above, I just don't have it in me to trade games right now.

Sometimes they drop in anticipation of a small bump.  For instance a game might drop from $7 to $5 and then get SB to $8.  

 

Then again sometimes they just drop.

I found a pretty scratched up copy of Wii sports resort at the thrift store for a $1.75. Think they will take it for trade in? I’m guessing they will just send it away to get refurbished.

You'll get hit with refurb fee unless employee doesn't care enough and will bypass the deduction

Refurb fee is like $5 I think. So you are still getting good money for it. But if you have multiple Gamestops in your area and plan on going to more than 1 for other reasons, so reason to accept the offer from the first store.

Double check the values. Not all dropped. Twilight Princess Wii, Sims 4 and mario 64 ds were all still up in value.
