Heatran Promo Giveaway at Gamestop!

Gamestop stores are giving away a holo Heatran promo with the purchase of $25 of Pokemon TCG products.

Unlike the in-set version, the promo is printed on galaxy holofoil and has an Ultra Prism stamp on the artwork, just like a prerelease promo.

The promotion starts today and will last only through February 28th. Call your Gamestop before going to confirm.

The promo could either be celebrating this year’s “Year of Legendary Pokemon” promotion or it could be celebrating the release of Ultra Prism. If this is for the Legendary Pokemon promotion, we might see more stamped promos throughout the year. If it’s for the release of the set, this might mean Gamestop will now be giving out a stamped set promo upon the release of each new set, like Toys R Us.

Don’t forget to get your Piplup promo tomorrow from Toys R Us! Just don’t get it from my store, they always have a shortage! :p

Thanks goes to TWGaming for the photo!

    I spent $25 dollars for this. I can't believe it.

    Lol going to a pre-release is more worth it than this.
    And not to mention a lot of the game stop/EB games employees just don't care enough about the whole 25 dollar requirement they just give it to you if you just buy TCG product in general.

    I like the art - it's so unassuming. The card itself seems pretty mediocre though.

    It's literally just the art from the set with the logo in the corner. Not worth $25.

    If you think your spending 25 only for the promo remember your get the other stuff you bought at least it's not a waste

    It's a free card with the purchase of something like an Elite Trainer Box or a GX Promo Box, stop complaining about getting free stuff in addition to what most people would buy eventually anyway.

    I GOT THIS IN UK! I got it instead of the Piplup at Toys R Us. I only had to spend £10!

    I can confirm that my local GS didn't care about the amount purchased. I took my boys in there today to get a couple ULP packs (after the TRU trading party, since TRU is overpriced) and they each got one of these promos.

    I WOULD have gotten one without spending any $$$, but my DAD kept repeatedly pointing out (in the tiny GameStop store) that I had to spend $25 to get one. Employee overheard and said that I had to buy the $25 of stuff to get one. Great one, DAD.

    I guess this is good for people who like Heatran. We don't really need another promo though.

    THE WORST THING JUST HAPPENED. YESTERDAY I WENT INTO GAMESTOP AND ASKED IF I COULD POSSIBLY GET ONE OF THE HEATRAN PROMO CARDS AND THEY SAID “You can only get them when you spend $25”. And I was like, whatever, they have different clerks every day. I will try again tomorrow. I tried again tomorrow (today now) and I was refused AGAIN. They don’t even get rid of a QUARTER of those promos at my store and have always said yes to giving them to me. Odd.

    EDIT: I have tried this kind of thing over 10 times previous to this, sometimes when a friend comes to get one too, and the answer is always yes. I am not trying to be obnoxious, I do know that you are supposed to spend the $25, I am just saying that this is a first. (That happened twice :3)

    Lucky! I want to see I feel they still have them at my store and see if I can have them as they will throw them in the trash soon anyways.
