From now until Halloween - October 31 - you can get an extra 20% of Farm Cash when you redeem a Zynga Game Card in FarmVille. According to a new loading screen you'll see when entering your farm, this promotion doesn't seem to require you to purchase your Zynga Game Card from any particular retailer; it's just a setup that will see you (in Zynga's words) having 20% off Farm Cash when redeeming a card.
As I've said before, the language in these kinds of promotions is a bit misleading. It shouldn't say "20% off" at all. Instead, it should say that you'll earn 20% more Farm Cash when redeeming a card. After all, it's not like GameStop (or any other retailer that sells the cards) can give you a discount on actually purchasing the card in the store. You're going to end up paying the same amount of real-world money either way. You'll just receive more Farm Cash in the end than originally.
Still, this isn't to say the promotion is bad, as you're going to end up with more Farm Cash than you expected by taking advantage of it. Just keep in mind that your out-of-pocket expenses will be the same, and keep in mind that you only have until the end of the day on October 31 to take advantage of this deal if it sounds interesting to you.
