Should the $10 off promo combine with price match or will it not activate?

Skyward Sword is $50 on Gamestop.com right now (add it to cart). Should be an easy price match +$5 off if you still have your coupon form this month.

From my experience, this won't work in-store because the price-match is a "promo" and won't stack with the $5 off. I tried it on Friday with Skyward Sword HD when I requested a PM to Walmart's $49.94 in-store price, and while the PM worked just fine, the $5 monthly coupon wouldn't apply to the lowered price.

Are there any blanket trade in promos going on that are not tied to a preorder or pro membership? I think I saw +30% on everything but that may have ended

There was no blanket promo for an extra 30% anytime recently. You probably saw the promo for trading games toward a pre-order

My stores are pushing the +10% bags. With pro it stacks to 20% without being tied to a pre-order. And +30% only works if you have pro so I'm not sure which promo you're referring to.

Just ordered Skyward Sword + Crash 4 (both new) for $68.82 after $5 monthly & Save $10 over $75 promo.


Just picked this order up instore. Both sealed and they gave me the Zelda poster when I asked. I told them a felt a little bad since I had preordered Zelda already in store but the manager said no, it was better that you did with the promotions. Rolled the Zelda preorder into Sonic Colors to keep up the goodwill.

Must depend on how the employee rings up the pm. Yesterday i pm'd the walmart price and used 25+5+5(monthly) in reward certs as well.

It looks like the 10k points Pro promo is running again this week. If anyone tries it, post here to confirm that it worked.

Will Gamestop price match their own website? Wreckfest is DotD for $13 and I’d like to get it with trade credit. I’d like to save a step by maybe doing it all in-store rather than trade a game for credit and then order it. I tried searching twice to find the answer and didn’t come across anything.

They have been told not to price match the DOTD on the website unless you threaten to speak to the DM. I bet most employees would though without much fuss

Thanks for the info. The stores here are short staffed with only one SL at each location. They have a few new hires so unless the manager is working today I may be out of luck trying to price match. I'll just go in and trade a couple of games and then order it online.

They're not, it's a temporary thing. NieR Replicant and SMT Nocturne HD had the same thing happen.

I wanted to price match Monster Hunter Stories 2 and Skyward Sword HD for $49.99 each and use my 20k points and $5 monthly cert on the purchase. Also wanted to take advantage of spend $75 save $10. Does the breakdown seem right?91C48D3F-FA41-4566-9A2F-521C68138948.jpeg

Edit: There wasn’t a $20 cert so she said to redeem two $10 certs instead. I did some research just now and the same value can’t be stacked. I have a save $10 off any item active offer. Does that mean one cert didn’t get used?

That doest look right, you didn't get the 10 off 75 probably because the price match. If you would have, would have been 75 plus tax

Yup total looks good. First discount was price match, thats why it says promo not found. Second discount was $10 coupon and the other game was your $5 monthly coupon. Third and final discount was the $10 off if you spend $75+. You should still have one $10 coupon left over.

He only got $15 off so something went wrong. He should have gotten $25 off if everything applied besides the extra $10 off coupon.

I'm sure this is what you found, just filling in the blanks for anyone else unaware:

 

You can't use two of the same denomination reward cert in one transaction. You could use the $5 monthly, $5 new member reward, and a $5 cert as they are all technically different. The policy is also supposed to be that only 3 rewards certs may be used per transaction on a single item, but the POS does not block it, so you can redeem a $5, $10, $15, $25, and $50 reward cert for a total of $105 off (plus the $5 monthly and $5 new member for a total of $115 off). The system does not work well when trying to do multiple items with multiple certificates, though, usually just taking them all of the highest value item, so if your certs total more than the cost of the most expensive item, you have to do multiple transactions.

This doesn’t look right. The price match wasn’t included. You would’ve been better off just taking the price match plus extra $10 and saved your cents. Both Price Matches show $0. You might be able to ask for a $20 refund since the price match wasn’t included, but they could deny you.

Should have used a $15 and $5 cert next time, but yeah, looks like you got all 3 discounts, and should still have a $10 cert left, because you can use 2 of the same discount on 1 transaction. 2 $5 would have worked because 1 was a monthly and other would have been regular cert. But getting your monthly to stack with any other discount is highly YMMV so you got lucky there.

May I ask what you all are using the bonus $5 found on the receipt for renewing Pro on? Wasn’t sure if it worked on eshop or Xbox credit - thank you!
