ASM at one store and the SM at another store in Long Island today told me that 4/4 - 4/10 is a 30% for 2 games, 40% for 3 games, and 50% for 4 games promo. No other details.
Glad to hear the promos will keep coming regularly.
Thanks for the info!

Remember everyone: Post to Reddit, harass newcomers, tell the associates you saw the deal on CAG and do numerous trips to the same store with the same games wearing a Wombat shirt and we'll do just fine.
You forgot buying games and trading them right back in without even leaving the store.

My store right down the road is a prestige store. He said it's because he always asks people to fill out the surveys and many of the regulars do. It's actually the lowest volume store in my area, strangely enough.
Its like that at one of the stores in this area too. The main guy there mentioned they don't get as much traffic as other Gamestops around, but have about the same amount of loyal customers that keep coming back. I was planning to go by there Friday to trade some stuff anyways, so if this prestige thing turns out to actually be worth it I'm covered.
Also as a general tip for people having to make their own lists, two things I didn't know/realize until I saw them mentioned here. First is you can search by system name in the text box under games to bring up a full list for the system, and you can sort by trade value. Then just work your way down the list as you check prices.

AllHalo games will be going up in price soon since they all will be BC this year. Wonder if any will be in the 4 for $10 starting tomorrow? July 10th
Edit: Starting with Halo 3, so not all of them...
4 for $10 is supposed to be any $4.99 and under game. Right now Halo 3, 4 and ODST are all that price.
Hopefully they will still be too busy sorting the mess from this past weekend to raise them before the sale hits.

Just wanted to say thanks to the people here for the heads up on this promo. I haven't really paid attention to anything in about a year then just happened to see this. After looking up the values for gamess on Gamestop's website (Seriously people it isn't hard. You don't need spreadsheet access to put a little work in.) and planning a trip between three stores I managed to turn $197 in credit from trades a few days ago into $517 today.
If this is still going on Monday I might try another round. At the moment I'm eyeing getting Xbox Ones and trading two of them back using the $50 bonus coupon posted a few pages back.

I think, for most of the people who don't like the price of the memory card, it's not that they don't have the money to buy the card, it's the fact that Sony is screwing over the gamers by charging too much for their proprietary crap. Again, this is my understanding of what others are thinking, this is not what someone told me and I am repeating it.
This is how it is for me. Granted these are Gamestop used prices, but 16gb of storage shouldn't cost more than I paid for the system itself in 2015.
In a time where game companies opened up and started letting people provide their own storage solutions, Sony stayed in the land of overpriced proprietary memory cards. It might not have been the main reason, but I feel it was a significant one in causing the system to flop outside of Japan.

Late reply, but why not? Physical over digital for me.
I just got involved with vita stuff thanks to the PSTV sale from Gamestop. Normally I prefer digital, but feel the opposite here. The offensive prices of memory cards, combined with the fact you can't back up your stuff without being connected back to Sony's servers is what does it for me.
I'm one of those nuts that keeps a backup of everything, including my digital console games. If I could use my own storage and be able to restore a back up at any time like with my 360 and Wii U I'd probably be fine shoving a large microSD card in there and using it. As is, I'll keep getting the games that interest me physically if I can.

Can I have the cashier redeem my points for a $25 off pre-owned cert once I know that they will allow me to stack coupons? I don't want to be locked into the $25 cert unless I know for sure I can use it.
I stacked a $5 off pre-owned with one of these a couple days ago. So $25 off should work as well.

Got the last used PS TV within a 90 min driving distance Saturday and have been piling up games for it using bday and these coupons.
So far I got:
Persona 4 Golden
Final Fantasy X/X-2
8gb memory card
Going to get some cheap 360 games later in the week.
I keep thinking Gamestop has to have learned their lesson by now and this promo won't come around again.... then it does.
For the powerup rewards pro, are they giving a $5 used coupon w it or is a b2g1? or whatever?
b2g1. I renewed this weekend and it showed up in my active offers monday.
