I really want No Man's Sky but I'm having trouble biting for $30.  I know it's still fairly new on XB1 but still, it hurts seeing it so cheap on PC and PS4.  Other than that not sure sure what I'd get really.  Was hoping for a better deal on Madden or something too so I can use it to teach my kids more about football but I guess I'll wait for some of the sales closer to the Super Bowl.

Can you a 10 or 5 dollar off coupon during the pro sale?

I just renewed my power up rewards membership after not having it for like years. Do I still get a B2G1 coupon?

It only applies to used games, I'm guessing the bulk of your order is other items?

I'm reposting this for the third time, but Dollar General is doing a weekend deal where you can buy $30 in GameStop gift cards for $25 or $50 in GameStop gift cards for $40. Good for those who don't have trade credit in advance of Pro Day. Sorry if you've seen this before now, but I want to help all my CAGs to save money. ;)

Just went to Dollar General to try to buy a $50 gift card from GameStop for $40 and it rang up before $50 price. Has the sale ended or is there something more to it?

Grabbed a few cool used items;

 

Wario Ware Gold (3DS)

Summon Night 6 (VIta)

Fallen Legion (Switch)

Tempest 4000 (Xbox One)

 

About 50 for the lot so not bad. Considered Soul Calibur 6 but it will be about the same price I could have gotten it on Black Friday for a brand new copy. Almost grabbed Dark Souls for Switch for a good price but didn't want to spend too much with Black Friday coming up.

Yes, it will arrive in your PowerUpRewards account in 2-3 days.  (Only applicable for 1 transaction , in-stores.)

GS probably holding off for BF weekend as part of their Black Friday promotions.

Same response I got. I'm guessing it's regional.

It used to be, but with Gamestop's depressed trade-in values these days, I'm leaning towards no.

If you plan on buying yes as Amazon/Best Buy are doing away with there gaming deals more or less. If you want to trade no because they are trash.

Definitely worth it if you don't mind buying pre-owned games throughout the year.  Also, if you are a fan of older generation titles (PS3, XB, DS, Wii and WiiU) ... you can expect promotions and pricedrops in order to clearance them out.  GS is leaning towards collectibles now for the needed shelf-space.

Not that I know of. Did you buy one of the GameStop gift cards that allows you to add a custom amount, or was it one for a straight $50? I bought one of the ones that said "Choose Value From $15 - $500," and it worked yesterday for the $30. Others have posted since then that it worked for them. Perhaps the associate didn't key it in correctly? I'm thinking about going back today since I want a cheap Xbox One S, but there's been no confirmation that GameStop will be selling them for $199 on Black Friday, so I haven't decided whether I'm going to sink $160 into GameStop cards. As much as I love a good deal, I hate shopping there since so much focus during transactions there is put on upsell. I know Walmart is selling the Minecraft bundle and they don't give a damn about me preordering games or adding a warranty to a $5 game. Rant over, but all I can say is that the posted expiration date at Dollar General was 11/10.

I believe you still get extra (double?) reward points, and they add up rather quickly...and then you get an extra 10% in trade in's and used purchases.  The B2G1 coupon is kinda hit or miss now and "officially" on their site it says you no longer get it.  All depends how much you buy, really...the membership could be "worth it" almost immediately for some people.

I haven't been able to find 3 similarly-priced games to make a B2G1 worthwhile in years.

I think $15 is worth it just get the 12 magazines per year and the occasional 10% discount off something used you buy.  Then there are always reward days like this.  I look at it like a magazine subscription.

You can do a return rebuy to get the games you want. Buy the games you want at one store and then return rebuy at the other store that has the game that you want and use your B2G1 coupon. I have done this multiple times without any problems from the cashier. They understand that people do this to use their B2G1 coupon.

I tried one of the custom amount cards like you said 15-500 and asked to put $50 on it. It rang up $50. Even the manager tried to help but said "maybe it was family dollar". I don't mind trying later if it is confirmed by someone working today. What state did you find it working in? Maybe it is regional as there was no signs or any info about it at all in that store. Thanks. :)

I did 2- 50.00 cards last night in Cleveland. The manager didn't know anything about it and was surprised that it was discounted.

Bought a $50 gift card for $40.  It was one of those $25 - $500 Gamestop gift cards.  Finally a regional deal in the Midwest that works for me.

Edit:  Can I do $150 for $120 on one of those custom amount Gamestop gift cards or am I just better off buying 3 separate cards on 3 separate transactions?

Virginia. I can't for the life of me figure why it works at some Dollar General stores and not at others.

As mentioned before, you have to buy separate cards in increments of $50 to get the best deal. It's inconvenient but worth it. If they ask why, just say you have multiple relatives for whom you are buying the cards.

So you can't use your ppweup rewards with the pro day sale. Bs.

Now I have a coupon that I can't use. Anybody knows if the system will allow using it during Black Friday sale ? The manager was clueless.

The Pro Day sale is considered to be its own separate Promotion hence you have to be a Pro member for the discount to reflect. Black Friday the prices are the same regardless of whether you are a Pro member or not. Your coupon will work on Black Friday no problem due to this. Same thing as the whole Guaranteed $30 for Pro members for select trades. If the 30% trade bonus is more than that you receive that instead. So Example base is $25 then you get $32.50 with the 30% which is more than the Guaranteed $30. You do not get 30% additional on top of the $30 Guaranteed amount. You do not get the opportunity to double dip. Its one promotion or the other. Hope that makes sense.

End date on the rdr2 $10 is 11/17 I think and the Dollar General deal ends today. I got the gift card where you could add a random amount and there was a small sign up by the gift cards in my store advertising the deal, rang up no problem. Then I went straight to Game Stop and used the gift card right away.

My Dollar General had signs up. Interesting to note, the card rang up at $50 initially so the guy didn't think it worked. But when he went to the next step the ten dollars came off. You can only buy with cash. This was in Florida. I bought two.
