The Hits Keep Coming: No More Amazon Gift cards at GameStop
It’s often possible to buy discounted GameStop gift cards through different sales. The reason why they are popular is because GameStop sells Amazon gift cards. Amazon gift cards are rarely discounted anywhere.
Many GameStop locations allowed you to purchase Amazon gift cards with GameStop gift cards, hence giving you a nice discount on Amazon purchases.
That seems to have all ended a few days ago. Miles per Day reports that Gamestop stores are no longer allowed to accept their own gift cards for Amazon gift card purchases. Registers have been hardcoded to block these transactions. Amazon cash has also been blocked.
Yes another hit for those who relied on this method to get Amazon discounts. There were signs that GameStop was getting more strict recently, but now it’s all over. Definitely not a good week.
