Just got an email about this with a $10 gift certificate to GameStop. I had only made about two or three ThinkGeek orders in the past, each under a $100.

Gonna head to GameStop this morning to see if there are any restrictions on it.Screenshot_20190817-091540~2.png Screenshot_20190817-091504~2.png

Varies based on how many points you had. Mine was for 25.

Did anyone else have a broken email for the certificate? I didn't have any images in mine, just links that redirected to the GameStop website when trying to click them. Anyone know if there'd be any chance to get them to regenerate my email if I call GameStop support? lol

Sweet, $50! Time to find out if it works at my local thinkgeek.

Shit I only got 5 bucks and I made a bunch of purchases. Wonder if it was across some fake emails.

I think I had about 1500 points or so and got $10 off.

I spent about $400 there in the last few months and didn’t receive an email. :(

Some people over at SD are saying their coupon didn't work. Anyone here try theirs..? I get the feeling this was a Fuck up of some kind and these won't be honored.

Had to search my email, it was there for $10.

Mine didn’t work. The cashier said it was a valid code, but it wasn’t activated yet.

Mine did not work in store.  I was told to contact customer service... I guess I will later.

I was able to use my $10 cert tonight in store. Bought a $25 Xbox gift card for $15. So they seem to be working now. Cashier couldn’t scan the printed one and had to scan it from my phone.

They need to scan the coupon before any other stuff apparently, or that's what they did with mine yesterday. Picked up the X-Force variant X-23/Laura Kinney statue, and a Trunks figure. Dumped some 3ds games with that nice bonus going on to cover the rest. Won't lie, free $25 was nice, been eyeing the X-23 for ages.

I got one too. $15. Not bad.

 

Thanks for letting us know OP! Probably never would have seen the email on my own.

Got a code for $25, tried to use it on a MediEvil PS4 preorder online, but it wouldn't work.

I don't know what to use mine on either but seems like people are using it on digital currency cards, might be a good idea to do that before they nix that.

I had this issue. I emailed help@thinkgeek.com and they sent me a new $5 Rewards Cash certificate code. No barcode, just a text code. They say I can use it in store or online but I haven't tried it yet.

Has anyone used this online? Trying to use mine but doesn't seem to be working... putting it in the normal promo box, not sure if I should input somewhere else.

I found you had to add something to your cart, put in the code, then remove the game you added (unless it is the one you're wanting).  The code will stay active in your cart and when you browse for games afterwards it will show "$25 ThinkGeek credit" (or whatever your voucher is worth) under the eligibile games. Some games are not eligibile to use it on: for instance I wanted to use it to pre-order MediEvil but the coupon expires before the game releases so it is not eligible.

 

I was able to use it on ShenmueI+II PS4 and got it for $5 + shipping.

Hm... odd, I tried buying a used GC game and it didn't work. Maybe it was excluded or something. I'll try again later.

for the life of me, i could not get the coupon code to work @gamestop.com.     I rolled into my local gamestop and bought a $25 PSN card for $15 off, cost me $10.     Sweet!      I hassled the guy at the checkout about PS5 preorders while i was there.    Circle of life, you know.
