#14250876 New Monthly $5 Dollar Cert for Power Up Rewards Pro

Posted by easper on 30 December 2019 - 10:02 PM

So for those of you that renewed Pro membership with an active membership, what could you spend the first $5 cert on the receipt on? I saw it wasnt usable on pre-owned until spring 2020 and didn't work on a GS GC, but are gaming gift cards allowed ($5 eshop?) or just full priced non-sale merch or new games? :oldman:

Eshop card didn’t work but PSN card did. Weird. Not sure about other POS cards but would love to know for next month.

#14249212 GameStop Winter Sale (Starts Dec. 26th-29th In-Store) Live Now Online

I'm using the mobile site right now, and right under the price are two Check Store Inventory buttons - but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it's not showing up for you. Their website is donkeyshit after all.

Happy to chalk it up to their shitty site. Stopped by the store and was able to grab Luigi, Astral Chain, FE Three Houses, and DQ Builders 2. Would have loved to find Sword or Shield but no complaints. I mostly wanted Luigi.

Gotta think Phil just announced Control too early. I actually have this vague memory of it being talked about as a Game Pass title way back when it was shown/announced at the Xbox E3 press conference. Does anyone else remember that, or am I (possibly) psychic?

#14178231 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate $1 only !

Posted by easper on 14 June 2019 - 08:09 PM

So the 12 month gold = 4 Month ultimate = 29000 reward points? How easy/hard is it to earn 29000 points every 4 month in rewards?

3 months of Game Pass (2 months of Ultimate) is 17000, which I realize now is more x2 than the year of Gold for 4 months (34,000 vs 29,000), though they often have "hot deals" on Game Pass and Gold, so you may be able to choose which one to buy based on the deal, your status, and amount of points. I'd imagine they will add GP Ultimate subscription codes as rewards at some point. It will be more than the current GP and Gold rewards, but the lack of conversion rate might work out better.


I understand why so many people are buying Gold and GP codes before converting to Ultimate, but I'm fine with the Ultimate subscription I have until October 2020 with codes I'd already banked from Bing points. I haven't spent real money on Gold or GP in years thanks to MS Rewards, and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to continue using points alone to "pay" for Ultimate. Especially since I have a year and a half to bank more points.

Small point in the frenzy, but the actual math is, months of Gold remaining + months GP remaining + 1 (the month of Ultimate you get for the dollar).

My Amazon order of Kingdom Hearts 3 from January 25, 2015 is scheduled to be delivered January 29, 2019. A 4 year preorder! It was $41, I’m surprised they never cancelled it on me.

Last week was my last week of GCU, so I pre-ordered more games at Best Buy than I was planning to. Ended up ordering KH3 even though I've never played the others. We went as a family to Disney World in December, and my daughters are super into all things Disney so I figured if nothing else they would enjoy seeing some of their favorite characters... um, have their hearts ripped out or whatever? I've read several KH summaries and I *think* I know enough to play the third one. Famous last words.

Evil Within 2 should be $12 on the Microsoft Store website last I checked if that at all helps you make a decision.

I’ve been going back and forth about buying EW2 for $15 digital, but I don’t know if I’d play it more than once. $3 less isn’t much of a discount but apparently it was enough for me to buy it. So thanks!

Thanks so much for everyone who explained the Battlefield V rewards punch card. Just got the 6,000 points and the full refund for EA Access. Used it towards another $10 store credit I’ll probably hold onto for the holiday sale in a month. Or not. I’m feeling reckless.

#14089603 Diablo III Switch - $17 at Walmart

Posted by easper on 23 November 2018 - 03:41 AM

Thanks for the heads up! Brickseek and the Walmart app both said my store was out of stock but I went out anyway after my family went to bed and I found a copy of Diablo! The clerk was surprised by the price but asked if it was part of the sale and I said that’s what I saw online. Works for me.

on a side note

I fucking hate the holidays........ESPECIALLY thanksgiving and black friday :/

The older I get the more the holidays sneak up on me. If I didn't have to buy ingredients for green bean casserole I doubt I'd even remember it was Thanksgiving until someone turned the parade on Thursday morning.


Thanks for the contest!

Like this post to enter a drawing for a code for I, Hope. 2 codes will be given away, winners will be drawn Friday evening.

The codes will be from using Microsoft's "Buy as Gift" option on the marketplace, so I will need an email address to send it (maybe a tag will work from the console), and according to MS's terms, it can only be redeemed on a US account.

Thanks for the contest!

Giveaway time!

Tomorrow is the 60th running of the NASCAR season-opening Daytona 500, and that gives me an opportunity to give this thread some much-needed positivity in the form of a giveaway.

Rules | Prizes:


*NOTE: If you have an account that's only like a week old and/or have fewer than 10 posts, I'm probably going to skip you. I want this to be for active CAGs more than lurkers/dupe accounts.

I'll make another post later with the entrants/racers.

Thanks for the chance!
