I have a ton of GameStop trade credit I will either wait for the mini switch or a Xbox one x deal like the ones they have at the Microsoft store to use it . I don't think GameStop sells gift cards for the Microsoft brick and mortar stores I can buy with trade credit so I will continue to wait
Yeah, you apparently can't get any gift cards at other retailers that will be accepted at Microsoft brick and mortar stores. The only place you can get them is....at Microsoft brick and mortar stores, which defeats the purpose- unless you're getting them as a gift for someone else to use there. You can use the MS/Xbox cards sold from other retailers on the MS Store online, but the MS brick and mortar stores often offer deals that are not offered on the online MS Store. Makes buying from MS retail stores a pain, IMO. A shame, cause they offer the best extended warranties on consoles...up to 2 exchanges over a multi-year period (granted, mostly for refurbished consoles), plus controller exchanges also.
