Have you ever wondered about whether or not Walmart sells Gamestop gift cards? Gamestop is known for having the largest variety of video games and electronics on the market. Unfortunately, due to recent financial problems, and bankruptcy for parent corporation, Gamestop has lost its primary place as a top seller of consumer electronics. However, due to intense competition, including from internet stores such as Amazon, eBay, and Overstock, Gamestop has started offering gift cards to retailers as a way to regain market share.
So, is there a Gamestop near you? If so, are the cards still available? The short answer is yes. In fact, I walk past many retailers that sell Gamestop gift certificates every day, and in my travels I have actually bought gifts with them. If I were going to get a gift card for any other store, I would only choose those stores that had gift cards that were also included with other purchases I made.
What is the benefit for these particular Gamestop customers? Basically, if you purchase more than one gift card from Gamestop, you can save hundreds of dollars. That means you can buy two dozen tickets for the Wheel of Fortune game, instead of just one. Gamestop will even refund your money if you purchase more than one gift card.
So, why are these cards different than traditional gift certificates? To begin with, they cannot be used at a point of purchase, like a traditional card. They must be purchased online, through a website. Once purchased, the card cannot be used at a retail location, like most gift certificates. This of course, makes them much more valuable.
What is the downside to purchasing a Gamestop gift card online? Well, as you may have guessed, they aren’t very easy to find. The website is fairly new, but stores such as Amazon still haven’t put them on their websites. This means you will probably have to visit the websites of the actual retailers in order to find your card. In addition, if you happen to know where Gamestop is, you may end up paying full price for the card.
So is there an alternative to shopping at a local store that sells Gamestop gift cards? Sure, there are websites that actually allow you to purchase gift cards, instead of certificates. These sites are usually very popular and allow you to search for the exact card you want, and then purchase it. It costs about the same as a Gamestop card, and the prices generally are very similar.
