GameStop giving away free $5 XBLA codes, (MIGHT only work on US accounts, your mileage may vary) (Edit: Over)

gamestop

Edit @ 6:49PM EST: The promo is over, BUT, it’s actually going on for the next few weeks on Thursdays, so stay tuned for next week for another shot!… if they still have codes to give away! 😛

Original: So GameStop is giving away said codes. What do you have to do? Click on this link (just copy and paste the link on that page to your address bar) and then put in your email address, then it’ll prompt you to sign into your facebook account, do that and then confirm, and then you will right away get the code.

Someone over at NeoGAF posted this as a work around for those outside the US (or just don’t have said account period):

For everyone outside of the US, head to My Account on xbox.com, go to Payment & Billing, and hit Change My Region.

Worked for me.

So as I said, your mileage may vary, but hey, IT’S FREE!

What’s that? What does that have to do with Sonic? Easy! You can buy some games on XBLA with that code alone!

Have a look (based on the NA marketplace site):

Sonic Adventure $4.99

Sonic 1 $4.99

Sonic 2 $4.99

Sonic 3 $4.99

Sonic & Knuckles $2.99

Sonic CD $4.99

Sonic the Fighters $4.99

And a bunch of other stuff like DLC for like a buck or so.

Granted I’m uncertain if they add tax on top of those prices. Nintendo’s eShop does, Sony’s PSN does not.

Happy spending! 😀
