So if I cash in some of my Reward Points can I buy Xbox Digital Cash? Can I just add that to my Xbox account and wait for something I want to go on sale or does it expire? What rewards certificate works best for this...the normal one, will online only work?

Appreciate the advice on this as I am new to the digital scene....

Don't get the online rewards cert for digital currency as they only work on physically shipped items.


You need the in-store certs to buy digital currency. I just ask the cashier to buy the denomination at the register ($10 Xbox/PSN/Nintendo giftcard for $10 in-store certificate) and its printed on the receipt.


Xbox digital cash doesn't expire, it stays in your Microsoft digital wallet until used. You may have to edit your payment at checkout in order to use it for physical items

Just to verify I am not missing something, 4/$20 does not work online?
What kind of condition are online orders for used XB1 arriving in?

4/$20 doesn't work online, in-store only.

Condition is YMMV, could be complete, could be disc only with scratches on disc artwork in a smelly envelope jammed in a broken black DVD case

I picked up a couple to change out shells to clear ones. Definitely glad I don't have to spend $70 to do that. I'll be sure to test for drift before I start the process.

Even if you swapped shells and developed drift later on, Nintendo will still fix it.

I sent my swapped shell joycons in this past week and got it back fixed and drift free. Mailed it out Wed and got it back that same Sat.

Shouldn't be an issue, but where did you see it will be $5?

It's in the flyer for next week starting 2/9

how does the 50% bonus work in california? am i correct in assuming that god of war and horizon zero dawn would each trade for $18 trade credit? because that sounds way too good to be true, i only paid like $10 a pop for them

Yes, you'll get 18 for each, 19.20 if you have Pro, 20 if you're elite pro.

It's automatic at the register. The store I traded at yesterday had signage up about the extra 50% bonus.

#14251573 Microsoft Rewards Breakdown

How do you use your saved rewards points to buy an Xbox console from the Microsoft Store? I have around 176K points and i'm trying to figure out how to use those points to bring the price down so I can buy an Xbox One X.

You use the points to redeem for an Xbox/Microsoft giftcard.


Once redeemed, the balance of that giftcard is deposited to your account and expires in 90 days.


You have to use that same account to purchase the item, and make sure to edit your payment so that it uses your Microsoft giftcard balance first before any other payment.


If you have 176k, you might want to wait until you hit 182k so that you can redeem for $200

Anyone else having a problem with CAG16 not working today?

Did 2 orders on Christmas day with it and it worked fine. Today - Coupon cannot be added to your cart

CAG16 was disabled midday on Christmas because of the SD effect

Gamestop just doesn't want my money.  All i wanted to pick up was the 128GB microSD card for my niece, who's getting a Switch, and Indivisible for myself.  Indivisible is OOS already, and the price on the SD card is literally double what's advertised.  Oh well, their loss.  I can get a microSD card in that size for about the same elsewhere(minus the Nintendo branding), and i can wait until Indivisible drops to $20.  Assuming Amazon doesn't price match them just for fun.

It's been over a week.  I tried putting in a support ticket from their website, but they have never followed up.  

I had this exact problem when they cancelled an in-store pickup order that I had originally placed online.


It was resolved when I emailed thru the Gamestop app contact section. Forward your cancellation email with a brief explanation to apporders@gamestopmail.egain.net


They have to remove the authorization that was placed on the gift card for the already-cancelled order. The authorization is the reason why you see $3 when you check the balance, but the CSR thru the phone sees the complete usable balance.

Don't forget you will be charged tax also on xbox so make sure you get the extra $10 currency card if you don't have payment set up.

Unless you "live" in a state that doesn't charge tax on digital games, like California

Obviously this is dead, right? Or am I missing something?

Yeah it's dead. People are now talking about receiving their slightly delayed packages and/or authenticity of the DS4's
