Why dont they just give $50 off 100, now I have to buy the GC, and then pay them with that?
Giving GCs for xmas sucks lol

The e coupon is cold.

But if the 50gc gets you another 50gc, then you can use them both in conjunction with Sony points from the Sony Mbna card, that would be pretty hot. But I doubt it

Nevermind, i enlarged the image and saw the "minimum purchase of $1..". Likely $100. Guess it's not really a $50 GC but a coupon.

anyone know the details on the certificate? I'm looking at the thumbnail and i believe it says $50 off a purchase of $100 (guessing the last 2 digits)?

But isnt that the same? You buy something that costs $100, get $50 off with the coupon, then use the $50 GC to pay for it. Same as $100 for $50

They've had this promotion in the past. It is essentially 50 off 100, but they word it and complicate it to get you to come into the store more than once. I believe the coupon can't be used until after December 25th, but I might be wrong.

A lot of people used this promotion for boxing day shopping.

But its probably not stackable..

meaning if you bought 200$, normally one would expect buying 2x50$gc receiving 2x50 ecoupon for 100$+ purchase. But in reality you would only be able to use the 2x50$ gc + 1x50$ ecoupon. So you will still end up paying the remaining 50$.

Otherwise ppl would buy 10x50 gc to receive 10x50 ecoupon and stack everything up and buy a 1000$ tv for half the price. which will be hot!

They had this on Black Friday.. instore saw conditions that your purchase had to be over $100 or $150 (can't remember which one) and the $50 off coupon had an expiry. I think it was January.

Didn't ask whether they could be used together (GC+coupon) but don't see why not so good deal if you plan to purchase something anyway.

This seems to be the key... buy the $50 gift card today and get the coupon.

Return in the future and buy something for the minimum amount (let's say $150)... use the $50 gift card, and the $50 off coupon... down to $50 for the $150 purchase.

I called.

$50 off $150

Purchase before Dec 24th, use AFTER Dec 26th.

Forget it.

You also paid $50 for the gift card so you'd basically be paying $100 for $150. Since you can't use this until after boxing day, only reason to get this would be if you have your eye on something that never goes on sale.

The post is misleading. it's not a GC for another GC. It's buy a GC and receive $50 off coupon on $150. Essentially the deal comes from the $50 off $150 coupon, not the GC. So $50 off $150 is roughly 33% off, store-wide.
