So, I'm glad I read this first in the BB $10 thread first before I went to BB to pickup COD.  I had already bought 2 games this week so I went in to PM.  They were awesome.  I printed out what my cart would have looked like with Hello Neighbor and Street Outlaws in it also, showing the $25 card for free.  They just grabbed a card and gave it to me. 

 

COD-$10 GC   47.99

Street outlaws-$10 GC   31.99

Hello Neighbor HnS-3.99

$25 GC for bundle. 

Not bad at all, $45 in GC.

I'm a little disappointed that preorders aren't included, but it makes sense. Stacking this with the $10 pre-order certs would have been insane.

 

Still, MediEvil, Spider-Man GOTY, and Concrete Genie for $80 with a $25 gift card? Tempting.

Still trying to figure out if this is a good deal ... most of the stuff is full price, so even with GCU and gift card, it may still be cheaper on BF. Example is $47.99 for BL3, minus $12.5 gc = $35 ... will probably be $30 on BF. Now if Switch games were included, it might be a different story.

Only worth it for people playing new releases. Otherwise older games will be guaranteed cheaper Black Friday and I don't need a $25 gift card from them when I can save more than that later down the line.

If you don't have GCU, yes. If you have GCU, I doubt it. If I recall, BB's black friday prices do not allow GCU to stack on top. Me getting Resident Evil 2 for $20, DMC 5 for $20, Monster Hunter world for $16 and Nier for $24 look like BF prices to me. I highly doubt any of those games outside of maybe Nier will be cheaper than that. Then when you add the GC to the mix, it is a great deal.

Since this is a physical gift card, what’s stopping me from returning one of the games I ordered?

They can charge it after the return is processed because it's a promo.  You commit to their terms of agreement when you make the purchase.

 

That's why you don't commit return fraud.

I guarantee that if you drop below the $99 after the return, their system will charge you $25 for the gift card or reduce your refund by $25.

Tales of Vesperia: definitive

My GCU ran out over the summer, this isn't worth it to me at all. Especially since I'd have to spend that $25 gift card eventually and I don't have much games left I'm looking forward to this gen. Like Cyberpunk, I'll definitely be waiting for the PS5 version of that. Same for FFVII.

Yeah I am going to use it on either cyberpunk or last of us 2 or dying light 2. For me, the next year has more games that I want then any year in recent memory.

This is a pretty dope deal with GCU, since the $99 threshold is calculated using the pre-GCU total.

 

Apparently if you're ordering online there is a 3 item order limit on the $25 gift card itself though, so you can only do three sets with the deal before you get an error message.  I had several more sets all carefully mapped out to equal ~$100 too... dreams partially dashed.

FWIW, Blood & Truth ($40) plus any qualifying $60 game works for this promo, even after GCU; for instance, Blood & Truth + Outer Worlds + $25 GC = $80 after GCU. Seems to be a glitch with just Blood & Truth. I’ve successfully placed 2 different orders this way, one of which that was for a friend who also wanted Blood & Truth.

Pretty good deal, I'll return and rebuy Outer Worlds, add RE2 and DMC5 for 20 each with 25 gift card back. Thanks

As long as the total is $99+ before GCU, you get the gift card free. I have GCU and ordered Indivisible-$39.99, MediEvil-$29.99 and Concrete Genie-$29.99 (all prices pre-GCU) and got the gift card free.

Interesting... I tried something similar, and wasn’t have any luck. Must’ve been doing something wrong.

I'd like to know this as well.  I'd be okay with just two gift cards.  One for $99 worth of PS4 games and one for $99 worth of XB1 games. 

If not, has anyone tried mixing and matching PS4 and XB1 games for this deal?

Someone mentions in a few posts above that the maximum number of orders with free gift cards you can place appears to be 3.  I haven't tried it yet myself.

Seems to be part of the weekend sale that ends Sunday.

I was able to place two orders and get the free gift card on both of them so it might be a YMMV thing.
