Found on reddit here : https://www.reddit.com/r/GameDeal...20_20_off/


Since it's apparently not clear enough for some of you : CHECK YOUR APP TO SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, IF YOU ARE NOT THEN DON'T BE STUPID AND TRY TO CHEAT THE SYSTEM WITH A CRAPPY JPG. JAIL IS NOT WORTH A $20 OFF COUPON.


Some have mentioned that it works at Self Checkout and have also been able to make multiple purchases per this post : https://twitter.com/B_Millzy/stat...3623997440

Sorry man, that's the only pic they provided.

If anyone has it and can get a better screenshot that'd be awesome if you could share it or at least share the Terms & Conditions so we know how long it lasts.

You can scan coupons at self checkout though so it should work, never had problems with it not working before.

it's not the coupon scanning i am concerned about, it's the activation of the gift card at a self checkout. i believe the issue could be a timing issue - you could activate the card, but never pay or complete the payment.

Yeah but it won't activate until the payment is completed?

Yeah you can scan it but that won't do anything until the payment is authorized and processed.

im not sure, but i know back in the day at CVS they activated a card before taking my payment and when i realized there was some fee on it or some reason i didnt want to complete the transaction they were angry and said "no you have to buy it, it's already been activated"

maybe now things are different such that it doesn't activate until payment is done

but even if that is true, a lot of stores dont let self checkout for GC because of potential for fraud - too easy to steal a credit card, buy a Visa gift card and then go and use that - before it gets cut off, takes longer i guess (not sure why) but always more fraud like that

legally can they actually hold you? you've made good faith payment for something..... not your fault the coupon is available any more than if you picked it up off the corner in front of the building

how do you factually know that? why is it fraud? you're making assumptions of its intended purpose. perhaps they want a lot of sales today in order to bump #s up.
