Rated 1 out of 10 by ElfLord86 Did not get code instantly
I just bought this item and it does not give you the code at check out. I currently have to wait for them to review the order for some reason even though I had it directly taken from my account. Do not get this item, go into the store.
Rated 10 out of 10 by atomsk32 Quick and easy
Takes less than 5min to get code via email. Several of the bad reviews are a few years old, and Gamestop has made a lot of changes and improvements to their site, so getting the code is quick.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Bush99 No code at checkout, used paypal
I also did not receive the code at checkout. Been waiting an hour already. I used paypal, so maybe that is the hold up.
Rated 3 out of 10 by VoLcOm592 Way too Long
They take way to long to give you your codes. They do not give the code at checkout. Faster just to go in store. Do not buy digitally.
Rated 3 out of 10 by DizT Unreliable Delivery Time
As a few reviews have already stated, there seems to be an issue with Gamestop.com's system when it comes to ordering $50 PSN cards (or PSN cards in general).
****ONLY ORDER THROUGH THIS METHOD IF YOU ARE WILLING TO WAIT UP TO 48 HOURS FOR YOUR PSN CODE****
I placed my order about 16 hours ago (yesterday afternoon). I received an order confirmation number/receipt within my browser page and sent to my email. The browser confirmation page contained a spot where the code would have been but instead of the code, it contained the text "code unavailable. Further instructions will be sent to your email." I have yet to receive my code in any form (via email, order history page, etc.).
I'm sure Gamestop will deliver it eventually, but this is greatly disappointing considering the only reason I purchased online in the first place was to get an instant code.

Rated 8 out of 10 by BomWatchOut only good if you are in a hurry
well, what can i say.. you will get the card code after GS gets the payments from your card and it will work just fine. BTW the processes that goes from you placing the order to them accepting the payment can take from 5 minutes to 2 hours. You will get the card code then place it in the ps3 and you get your money there, thats the good part. You will have to pay an extra 4 bucks for making this order (tax payment) that is money you could save if you would go to your ps3 and add founds from there instead, that would be the bad part.
In the end is all up to you. If you dont want to go to your local GS store and buy it from there then this is the way to go, that is if you are willing to wait from 5 minutes to 2 hours. Anyway, i only recommend this if you are in the same situation i am, one in which you cannot add founds in the PS Store.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Antoinette not very immediate
The reviews say that the delayed delivery time for the code was gone now. Not the case for me. Ive been waiting for an hour and no code yet.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Propa Nnnniiiicccceeee!!!!
I, hesitantly, bought this fearing that I wouldn't receive it any time soon based on the negative reviews but I received the code as soon as the payment processed through. Maybe they have corrected the system. Works like a champ now!!! Great job..
Rated 1 out of 10 by Oddysseus Terrible. Do not use.
The idea of buying these things online is to save you the trouble of having to go to the store to buy them. However, they have a system in place that makes such a service completely useless. I could have gone to the store, bought the card, had lunch, pay my bills, AND read a chapter in a book at the time it takes for them to send the card number to me. I was hoping to do all that stuff while the game I was trying to get was downloading. Don't get me wrong. I am a very patient man. However, this is something that should be fast and easy. Some people apparently had luck with just buying one. I only bought one myself. Yet I am still having this problem. I mean, really, what is the point of selling them online when it is far more convienient to just go to the store. At this rate, I could of even walked to the store. The only use this has is if you are unable to travel to a store that holds psn cards. Even then, you might as well try finding a code somewhere else. I hope that someday Gamestop will realize what a terrible folly they are making by having us wait so long for the code, and that this review would become outdated. However, right now, this service is as waste of time and space.
