Say what you will about GameStop
...but if you know how to work their system....you can get some awesome deals.
So I got my Vita, but like everyone else I'm pissed about memory card prices. The 4GB card that is included is filled to the rim with Uncharted, but it would be nice to take try out the PS+ games and the free Walking Dead download that came with the game.
So need new card. 16gb should do....looking up price.....FORTY BUCKS?!? Opens wallet....I got $20. crap.
So I look up the price of a used one at Gamestop. $35....still can't afford it. Ok...log into my Powerup Rewards account and I see that I have about 20,000 points. Hey look....$10 coupon costs 10,000 points. Buy....print coupon. I grab three crappy games off my shelf that have been collecting dust and head to the store with my $20, games, and coupon. I get 10% off the memory with the power up card. I get 10% bonus on trade value as well. Long story, short (too late?), I walk out of the store with the 16gb memory card AND my $20. All it cost me was 10,000 points and three games I didn't want anyway.
So now along with Uncharted, I've got Walking Dead, Gravity Rush, Lumines.....and 10gb to spare. Vita heaven!
