Anybody know what this 40% banner at the bottom of their home page is referring to? The link just goes to the search page with no mention of a 40% bonus deal.

I've seen those pop-up before as well. I think it is just a web master not clearing out old banners or something. Don't get your hopes up.

Isn't redeeming points on their shitty website a crap shoot?  I was in the store at lunch time and would have cashed out 10,000 points but not sure it is worth the hassle via their website.  

 

As others have said you can just buy a new cert for 1,000 points per dollar and use that in store on other giftcards.

its not that its a crap shoot its that they dont clearly mark what their certs are for, got screwed when i redeemed a 15$ one to use online only to find out its for in store use only so had to get an adjustment for my online order, would be nice if they had a feature to auto use ur points when shopping online instead of their work around

I thought people had issues using reward points to buy stuff on the GS website?  Maybe I am confusing it with trade credit though.

I bought the 360 on 11/22 but they changed my order date to 11/21. I emailed them early Friday but they haven’t replied. Am I out of luck or is there a number I can call? I’m assuming they will deny my rebate even though I bought it on 11/22 (I have a screenshot time stamp of my order and my cc statement confirms 11/22),

I have 8,000 points and there's a $15 pre-owned game I want to buy, but I remember hearing something about using that coupon with a Pro or Elite Pro membership means you don't get the full value?  Can anyone clarify?

The pro/elite discount is take off after the coupon is used. So if you use a $10 coupon on a $15 game, the 10% pro discount would be take off $5 not $15. So $.50 instead of $1.50 for example.

If you are elite it is a wash. If you are pro it is technically better value for pre-owned.

If a game is $15 new you pay $15 regardless if pro/elite etc and it is 15000 pts.

If a game is $15 used you pay $12 elite or 12000 pts. If you are elite at the end of the day 1000 pts is $1. If you are pro you would be getting the game for elite price ($12) since now 12,000pts = $13.50.

When GameStop used to drop used prices when games were on sale pre-owned certs were a no-brainer.

However nowadays I only use pts on new certs during sales like pro day when a game might be $20 new vs 37.99 used.

Can the $15 off .com orders be used to buy digital currency online or does that only work on POS cards in store? I'm hoping to get $20 eshop with my points and the last remnants of a Visa gift card, but not sure that will work.

I see the banner but everything appears to be normally priced for points? I've got 25k points but ehhhh.

I ordered a $50 Uber card for 50k points.  Never got any email or active offer to redeem it or anything.  Now I look and it's not even listed in the rewards center anymore.... uhhh what?

I would be careful ordering anything right now, something seems weird with their site. I ordered 2 of the 6 month XBL codes over an hour ago and still have no order history or email for them. One code was saying already used but magically got added to my account after a bit. Their website definitely needs some work.

So I ordered the Nintendo Switch with the $35 eshop & $50 GC this morning, and it says both of the gift cards are shipped, but I can't find anything on them. No emails for the gamestop GC, and I just received a email for the Eshop GC to check my order and it should be there?

Ordered one Xbox Live through the app, no email no order status. Ordered one through the website, immediate valid code.

Ordered 1 preowned game about 4 hours ago.  No emails and not showing in order history, guess I am screwed.

If you ordered digital currency through the ap try looking in the “digital locker”

Yea did find my code in the digital locker; weird though they usually send some sort of an email confirmation with these, ah well

anyone else having problems with gamestop's 50$ gift certificate from ordering one of the consoles?  When I apply it it says the giftcard has no balance?  

Same problem ... it says "The card has no remaining balance."

I ordered a Wii U bundle but received no Wii U. Cute.  I noticed the shitty store manager added a warranty without my consent.

Anyone know where Gamestop houses games to ship? By this, I presume I'm asking where their factories are located. The tracking for USPS shipping for my BF games is still unavailable. Wanted to see when I could expect a delivery. I live in NYC :).

They ship a lot of stuff from their stores now.  If it comes from their actual warehouse its in Dallas I believe.

A lot of times mine will sit unchanged like that and suddenly it shipped from like 1 hour away and will arrive the next day. I'm also waiting on tomb raider which shipped but has yet to move or be scanned.

You were right.  :)

 

Got the order email late last night and order now shows on the website.
