The offer is for an American Express PASS card. Not sure if I should bother. American Express is accepted nowhere. Anyone go through with this deal? Right now is the time to do it with the extra 25% off all accessories at GameStop.

This is a no-go. I tried to check out, but the cost remained $49.

FYI, I tried ordering and the price remains the same, free shipping works. The $25 gc has restrictions and a monthly fee of $3.95 and ATM fee of $1.50. The PASS Card is not available for sale in Arkansas, New Hampshire and Vermont. The PASS Card is also not available in California at this time. Cards purchased by residents in other states cannot be shipped to these four states. In addition, American Express does not sell or ship the Card outside the United States.

@donkeykongjr: As far as I can tell, an Amex "Pass" card - basically a fancy name for a gift card that you can re-load with funds, which they're pitching as something parents can give to teens to control their spending - would be accepted anywhere Amex is. I use my Costco Amex card (free for members) whenever I buy gas, eat at a restaurant, or book plane tickets, since I get significant cash back for those categories. It works for all of those without a hitch (on rare occasion a restaurant doesn't accept it), and frankly I'd expect would also work at any major retailer, just not at the Mom and Pop store down the block from you.

@mewman13: Nuts, it worked for me and changed the price at checkout, and I didn't see the text you copied. Somebody there must have gotten wise quickly.

@coco478: The $3.95 monthly cost of the Pass card is waived until Oct 1, 2011. Seems that you could get the card, use the $25 on it, and then cancel the card. At least, that's what I plan to do.

Haha the store I work at actually started accepting AMEX cards for like 3 months and then decided to stop accepting them again. Must be something about the company...

Gave it a shot 3x with no go and also says back ordered

the fee's am ex charges for retailers to accept their card is much higher than the other cards. So a lot of smaller shops and restaurants will not take it.

Code does not work. price remained at 49.99 all the way through checkout

That code is NOT good for MOVE accessories, also:
