Please delete if this is irrelevant but I was at GameStop today picking up my Pokemon Switch Lite and learned a $15 Power Up membership now comes with a monthly 5 dollar cert that works on anything in the store. The cert expires monthly and while the manager in the store said it was live ( I got a 5 dollar cert for signing up immediately) I saw on the site it doesn't start until Jan 2020. $60 for $15 seems like a desent deal though with just a few limitations. Here's the details for those interested.

Interesting.  It looks like enrolling with a digital subscription to GameInformer would knock $5 off the yearly cost.

It'll only knock $5 off the cost because the new cost for physical is going to be $19.99

 

I was talking about this with a GS staff earlier today.

 

The $5 a month though is the real benefit. Hot damn!

They informed me of the same thing too. He said something about if you renew it before Spring 2020, you can double dip and they'll give the 5 dollar cert on your receipt and still receive that month's 5 dollar cert if I got that correctly. I was good til Feburary but I guess I'll reup when I go pick up Pokemon next week

It’s worth noting that the 10% preowned discount is going away with this new program. I’m not sure why it still shows on the info page, but everywhere else I’ve read that the discount is being dropped.

I was told that the 10% goes away this spring. I guess this will overlap for a little bit

Was in a Gamestop today, from what the clerk told me:

January 2020 the 10% discount is gone. 

 

But he said they already have been told they are having a new price adjustment in January which may mean that all members get the 10% off used and not just Pro. (or gone completely) January is also when the $5 monthly certs start.

 

The $5 cert is in store only, can't be used online. But he said order online for store pickup.. return/rebuy with the code.

The $5 code you get for signing up does not work on sale items, I tried.

Compare the website

To the details in the flyer, Used discount gone. (Clerk said they just got the flyers)

Spoiler

This had been a thing here for probably half a year at least. I've been forgetting to use it though -_-

I take it the cert expires each month and doesn't carry over?

No it hasn't?

 

Unless that's something from Elite, since I wasn't part of the Elite phase, as I stopped buying from GS for a couple years.

 

But just signed up for new membership a few months back, and I can tell you it's not something that is typical as far as the $5 certs are concerned.

 

The only other thing I can think of is that you have your points on auto-issue $5 a month, which is a separate issue. When I renewed my membership, they failed to tell me about that until after that first month, and apparently they just have that specific setting auto-chosen for you when you get a Pro membership, but don't tell you that you need to turn it off. If that's the case, you may want to check your point history to make sure that hasn't been happening to you...assuming this isn't an Elite thing I'm not aware of.

It's been in test markets up until now.

Ah, well that makes sense then.
