GameStop has introduced a new service that allows customers to exchange other retailers' gift cards for GameStop gift cards.
Most likely to entice consumers to trade in the Walmart gift cards you get for selling games there.
I mean it makes sense, gamestop is a pawn shop licensed franchise before electronics
Buy game at best buy get $20 gift card... take to gamestop...use on their promotion. Best of both worlds.
Here comes all those Barnes and nobles giftcards lol and home depot
Read a book!
Damn it, I just gave a $20 Starbucks card that I received as a present to my wife
20? I am guessing $2-3 GS credit!!!
I shouldn't have laughed as hard as did to this comment lol.
I wouldn't be surprised if there was a hidden catch in fine print, something along the lines like: "Exchanged gift cards will only be valid for used item purchases"
Or you won't be able to return it because they are going to want to keep the money. I'm honestly surprised they are getting away with this. How are other stores letting the competition steal their money and lose sales?
An idea I have been waiting to materialize for a while.... but necessarily with GameStop, and I'm pretty sure their execution will be poor. Definitely don't like that you have to enter all your card info to start.
I think GS might be sweating a bit over Walmart horning in on the used game market.
We did this while I was working at a used retailer. It did not go well. Good luck, GameStop.
awesome idea! except it means I'd have to shop at gamestop :( never mind
Your $457.58 Target gift card can be exchanged for an $384.37 GameStop e-gift. LOL!
For the nerdy manchild whose mother gave him a giftcard to ross to get some nicer clothes because all of his are drenched in sweat and spray cheese. Giftcards are around for a reason. Otherwise they would all go to fred meyers and buy gift visas.
