No, when you return the games, you'll get the out-of-pocket amount back. You'll lose your cyber certs.

The Redbox to Gamestop jig is still incredible. Doesn't look like the sale prices were ever changed at RB. State of Decay and Final Fantasy X/X-2 flipped for a bunch.
Yeah but that involves spending actual money to get Gamestop credit.

Could someone answer a quick BBY question? I think I read that you can buy Gift Cards 9like to restaurants & Gas Stations) that BBY sells with Reward Zone Certificates. Is that correct?
And is it automatic or do you have to get an override?
Automatic, but keep in mind that RZ Certs are deducted pre-tax. You're losing the tax benefit if you use them to buy gift cards. You should use BBY gift cards to buy those restaurant/gas gift cards.

Anyone know if a rewards certificate would stack with a b2g1 coupon?
They do but only if you know what you are doing. Gamestop dollar off coupons are applied first, then a B2G1 coupon. Say you have 3 used games that are $30 each. After the $10 coupon, these three games are now $30, $30, $20. After B2G1 coupon, the $20 game becomes free and you pay $60, essentially wasting your $10 Gamestop coupon.
If, on the other hand, you have three games that are $40, $30, $30. After the $10 coupon, these games are now $30, $30 $30 and after the B2G1 coupon, it totals out to $60. You get the full value of the $10.

Went back to GameStop on Friday for 4 more games. All complete in box:
Battlefield 4 - 360
Dead Island Riptide - 360
Final Fantasy XIII - PS3
Final Fantasy XIII-2 - PS3
Sidenote: I used a $10 off a pre-owned game coupon & since it was already 4 for $20 it only took an additional $5 off my total but w/ PUR 10% discount I still managed to get these 4 games for less than $15 after tax. Not bad.
That's cause all your games are $9.99 before promos. The $10 off 1 game preowned coupon gets taken off first, making one of your games free. Then the 4/$20 kicks in, and made the other 3 games $5 each. So you paid $15 total, $13.50 after PUR.

The two really big releases in this line-up are Ocarina of Time and Pikmin 3. Both of those games have been out-of-print for some time, and are difficult and expensive to pick up on the second-hand market. (believe me, that's how I got Pikmin 3) For general Nintendo fans, this is fantastic. Now a whole bunch of harder-to-find Nintendo games will be widely available for a very reasonable price.
This is not so good for me. Mainly because I already have every game on that list. All the same, I'm happy for those fans who will now be able to play these games without ruining their wallet.
Ocarina of Time h as been in stock at all retailers for awhile at $39.99. I think it was only pulled cause people were running homebrew off it.
