Haven't posted a deal in a while so I thought it was time to give back and I didn't see this posted yet. This week's Dollar General flyer on the last page shows $5 off $30 and $10 off $50 gift cards shown. Specific cards are $25 Gamestop and Chili's, $20 Domino's, and variable amount Burger King and Olive Garden and associated restaurants. Valid 12-9 through 12\15.

You mean I get it and wait for GameStop to file for bankruptcy for potential 90% off games?

 

Deal!

If Gamestop (or any retailer) goes into bankruptcy, they don't have to honor gift cards.

Wait so I can't buy just one gamestop card correct? I would have to buy 2 of them to equal $50 since just one is $25?

For reference, GameStop lets you buy gaming cards (e.g. PSN, XBL, eShop, Google Play) cards with GCs.  Not Amazon, since that's like cash, but the gaming service cards should be an even switch, then.

The last time they did this my DG had the variable load GC's from 25-500. Loaded $50 each on 4 and the total came out to $160.

Yeah, that's what I figured.  I don't need $50 in gamestop credit but it would be the only way to get 20% off there. I'd have to get a $25 gamestop card and find some other GC only worth $5 to get the discount. Of course, the more you spend the more you save.

Seems like a decent opportunity to get some PSN credit via Gamestop.

The only downside to this deal is actually having to go to Dollar General.

It's about time for me to renew my magazine subscription of Game Informer.

I went this morning. I had to go to three stores before I could find Gamestop cards. Go to ring them up and they won't ring up correctly. He couldn't override the price either. Lame.

My local one had an ad correction posted saying it’s 20% off listed cards, which gamestop is, but it excluded variable cards that you pick an amount and tried to ring it up but it took nothing off. Kinda bait and switch to me.

Yea Isaw the variable 1 and it didn’t ring up right. They didn’t have set amounts either to try out so I left.

The cashier needs to do a payout to correct it.

Dollar General shouldn't be limiting the sale to fixed denominations as the image within their ad shows two gift cards (perhaps three) with selectable amounts (Burger King, FLAVOR, and possibly "One Card All the Favorites").

I just wasted an hour and a half of time going to a Dollar General to get this offer. It would not ring up on the ONLY GameStop cards they carry (variable amounts). Was hoping to score a cheap PS4 Pro but guess I will have to wait.

Scored two $50 GC for $80 total at the DG in Santa Ana, CA.
They had plenty, oven a dozen $50 GCs left.

Welp, I win the award for most annoying Dollar General experience. I got 4 $25 cards. The manager had to override to get it to $80, but it worked. Unfortunately, one of the cards I got was a super old GameStop/EB Games gift card, which are not even valid now. Tried using it at GameStop, and the associate was going to have to call in to a customer service line to have it validated and then generate a new $25 gift card for me.

So lesson learned, AVOID THE OLD EB GAMES GIFT CARDS.

Just bought 2 x $25 GameStop cards and it came up to only $5 off. Paid $45. This was my third store trying this deal since I tried the variable cards and it didn’t work. Not really a good deal for only 10% off.

Ad correction. Looks like its 20% off $25 gamestop gc and may only work on $25 only and not the any range ones.

Had the same experience. One thing I can recommend is checking for the $25 cards BEHIND the variable cards, that’s how I found them. Wasted 30 minutes while the manager went over signage and the ad, finally placing a phone call. Service rep told her there was a ad correction for 20% off and that’s why it rang up $45. I explained to her that 20% off $50 is $40. Her response was “I think the computer is better at math than you sir”.

First and last time I walk into a Dollar General.

I go by 3 Dollar Generals on the way home.
Stop 1 only has the loadable cards, and there’s a sign right next to it that says $10 off $50. Cashier rings it out, of course no discount. She called a manager to help, who did some drawer fuckery to make it so I only paid $40. She then told the worker to remove the sign. I wanted more than $50, but didnt want to push my luck.

DG #2 has a stack of $25 cards. I am excite sinceI thought it’d been reported that they work. I grab the amount I want and have the cashier ring up two at first, to test if if worked and to see if I can get the total amount I want in one go or have to break it up into multiple $50 transactions. She scans the two cards and the total is...$45. I mention $10 off according to the ad, she says “oh, that’s only if it’s a $50 card, not two $25 cards, which is weird bwcause we don’t even have $50 cards.”
Argh.
On to store 3, but my hopes are not high.
