You can just ask the employee to charge you for a $5 Xbox Live code and apply the monthly coupon. It will print on the receipt. I was able to do it earlier this month.

I renewed my Pro yesterday and it expires on 12/31/2020. Employee said it is good on currency cards.

Yes i know. I've been buying the gaming cards all of 2020. Policy can change when new year starts (like bby, target gift card policies) so im waiting till Jan to see if its still applicable. Just trying to figure out best timing to renew and get my family on the membership.

Strange your membership ends at end of month on the 31st instead of exactly 1 year later like mine is now. They do seem to change policies at any time. Sometimes certs and coupons work, sometimes not, etc, etc.

What is the best time to renew powerup rewards in order to get the $5 monthly coupon?

Mine expires on Dec 27th. I think i didnt get my january 2020 coupon since it was too close to end of month. If i sign up too early, lets say Jan 3rd won't i miss the coupon for the January month anyway? What I want to do is sign my wife up (and baby if they would let me lol) at same time. But i first want to make sure the $5 reward still works on gaming cards in 2021 (psn, Microsoft, eshop). Thats all im using the membership for these days so a little concerned about policy changes when the new year starts.

Sorry to ride this topic but, can we still buy the Xbox live pass for 60 something a year and then upgrade it for a dollar if we have done it already?

The $1 dollar upgrade is not possible again on the same account. Perhaps it is possible you can create a new account, then do the $1 upgrade on that.

Couldnt you grab Bayonetta 2 at a store where its $60, then take it to another store where brickseek says $30 and then tell customer service you want a price adjustment since it dropped to $30?

I'm really happy they gave 2018 games the spotlight and teased just a couple that are 2019.

I can't get excited for games like elder scrolls which has got to be at least 2 years away. Games that tease only a title screen or cg trailer dont do much for me. Even 1 year away is pushing it.

I was also hoping to use Aprils 20% coupon on either a Flash Sale or Golden Week but it doesn't seem likely that Golden Week will be in April. 


2017 Golden Week started April 29 to May 7 (sat to sun)

2017 Golden Week PSN sale May 2 to May 9 (tue to tue)

2018 Golden Week starts April 28 to May 6 (sat to sun)


It seems likely the 2018 Golden Week PSN sale starts on Tue May 1.

Should I get Forza Motorsports 6? I just bought a Logitech G920 and the Open Wheeler racing cockpit will be in next week! I got Forza 7 ultimate I'm going to start and started Forza Horizon 3 alreadyand have both expansions for that. Should I get Forza 6 though? I was hoping for a deal on Dirt 4 or Project Cars 2 instead.

If you're going so far as to get a racing cockpit you have graduated past the Logitech series of wheels. Get the fanatec csl elite or one of the equivalent thrustmasters. They make the logitech feel like a toy for less than a $100 more.

In terms of wheel ffb the forza series are pretty bad. F7 did get better but unless you play on pc and get a 3rd party program you wont get a great ffb experience. Skip F6, Assetto Corsa and Project Cars 2 are a couple games you will want to check out to make the most of your setup.

Ah alright, interesting. All the stores in my area that I went to still have the old ad!

I would definitely try to buy it then.

If this was really a POS system issue at some stores then they should not have those stores eligible for it until they upgrade those systems. No need to pause it nationwide for that unless they really are that cheap and stupid to not have computers that can handle a rental program. I kinda don't believe that excuse though.

If SFV AE adds stages and some costumes as well then that may get some of the current player-base to double dip. I dont see this convincing too many new players to join, that ship has sailed.

anyone have a b2g1 coupon they don't plan to use and is willing to give up? Would really appreciate it! Thx.

Don't ever do this. Any code with ebc and a dash in it like the b2g1 likely does could link the accounts together. I don't quite know the specifics so perhaps someone could expalin and add this to the faq.
