I have to renew my Pro membership today.  Meant to do it yesterday, but I had too much to do before New Year's Eve and never got around to it.  

 

Either way, I'll let you guys know if they're still putting the $5 coupon on the receipt or not.

I got the $5 code on my receipt when I renewed my Pro today.  Mine is good until 1/31/20 and did not work on the purchase of an Xbox gift card.  I saved it for another day.

I didnt get a code in my active offers, but wtf? doesnt work on gaming gift cards, doesnt work on used games. starting to sound pretty worthless for everyone but the collectible crowd.

"* Rewards Certificates not eligible for use on pre-owned games and accessories until program launches in Spring 2020."

We're just a few hours into the year. Give it a little time, especially since this is Gamestop.

He's talking about the bonus for signing up, not the monthly cert. I don't think most people have even received a cert yet.

because this is gamestop, i dont expect them to be able to change anything that has already been programmed unless its to take something away.

it seemed pretty mixed between people getting it for signing up and those getting it in the active offers, so i didnt really understand that somehow the same offer would apply differently.

Ya, I don't have a cert in my active offers. I didn't renew early for the bonus, just was waiting until January for the January 5 dollar off coupon...

Shrug. Guess I wait longer lol

Got an email about my January $5 cert and it confirmed that the new program starts on 1/16. Hopefully that means the monthly cert will apply to more items then but it also means if you want to use the current 10% pre-owned discount do it soon.

I was hoping to be able to stack my birthday coupon, $5 coupon, and Pro discount, but it looks like both the discount and my birthday coupon expire right when the new program officially starts.

It hasn't even started yet. You're basically saying you don't trust them to do anything at all..

When i try to buy the pro membership it says sorry youre already a powerup reward loyalty member. Is this for new members only?

The $5 is worthless to me in most cases if it doesn’t work on eshop/psn :/

I see my $5 cert under Active Offers. Says it expires 1/30/2020. Interestingly, it says "$5 off any GS item" and the fine print does not indicate that it won't work on pre-owned. Doesn't mean it WILL work, but the $5 coupon I got printed on my receipt last week explicitly excluded PO.


Mine too. I was part of the trial program so I’ve been using them on $10 psn cards. Now that the program is fully launch can I still use them on those cards now that pre-owned isn’t an option?

I used my January certificate on a PSN card yesterday.

The program isn't fully launched yet. When it is it will work on preowned products; not sure if it will work on digital credit.

Edit: there you go; previous poster confirmed it.

I was able to just use my Dec and Jan $5 certs on pre owned Move Controllers. 2 separate transactions.

excuse me, where do you find your $5 cert for being a pro member? All this bragging without telling where it is has got me in a tizzy. It's not in active offers and poweruprewards pro page doesn't do anything for me.

 

Edit: NVM,someone said they saw it in active offers

I sincerely doubt anyone is actually bragging about this, Considering it's another signal of the beginning of the end for gamestop

I have the same issue. Cant renew online even though they've been emailing me to renew and sending a link that just goes to the normal powerup page.

Used my $5 cert in store today. It would not work on a $10 eShop, but did work on $10 PSN.

I can confirm that you can buy things less than $5 with your certificate. I bought a keychain for $4.97 and it worked, didn’t have to pay anything.

Ah, the only reason I was thinking of getting the Pro membership was to use the certs towards eShop credit. I wonder if that will change after the 16th?

I tried to use my $5 cert on Xbox currency today.  It didn't work.  Tried both a $10 digital print-on-receipt code and a physical $15 card: No luck.

Thats weird, used mine on a $25 dollar xbox gift card and worked no problem.  Last month picked up a $15 gift card with it also.

As I was trading in excess Christmas gifts today (why return a $30 BOTW to Walmart when I can get $45 in credit?), I got a Pro account and the $5 coupon...

 

Even though clerks previously said it would work on anything, and the code on the receipt says it's good on anything OTHER than pre-owned stuff, it doesn't work on eShop cards -- nor Nintendo Online memberships, nor Nintendo Switch game download codes.

 

Weirdly, it will work on PSN cards -- but not on MS cards.  I didn't want either of those, but today's clerk said that was his experience.

 

The only "logic"  he could come up with is that the Nintendo cards have a dollar amount listed, and the PSN cards have "points"...

This is such a GS thing to do....i sure do hope they aren’t competent enough to kill elite pro and replace with this nonsense:/

That's weird about the $5 monthly cert not working on eShop, because I bought a $50 eShop card (Link picture card) in store with $50 cert yesterday.

Mine expires in spring, and still no $5 cert, so I guess I'm part of the 1-16 crowd! Hoping the trade-in values don't change too much with the "pre-owned price adjustments".

The extra trade in credit isn't going anywhere, just the 10% off
