Gamivo Smart Review Conclusion

So what is Gamivo Smart and is it worthy investment? Smart subscription is what G2A Plus is on G2A marketplace (see G2A review). Check what is G2A Plus to find more about it.

Is Gamivo Smart worth it? Well, it depends. If you regularly buy on Gamivo, you will get your investment back with the use of special discount provided to members.

Sure, Gamivo often provdes 5-10% discount to all users on selected titles, but still having coupon which you can use sitewide will surely get investment back with first purchase.

I don’t think other perks like pre-order delivery priority, automatic participation in giveaways, best deal alerts, etc.are much worth it. Though access to chat is useful

I would recommend buying Smart subscription only if you intend to buy at least 3 games per month using discount. You can also deactivate membership whenever you want.

  1. Hi

    It’s still not very clear to me how the Smart subscription works.
    So say I have subscribed. I can choose any game I want to spend a coupon on and I can do this a total of three times? Is this correct?
    Cus it seems that Gamivo only has the smart option for a selected amount of games.
    There are daily SMART Discounts and current SMART Discounts with codes iamsmart2 and iamsmart respectively. Are there any other smart codes?

    And does the amount of times i can use a coupon (ie 3) reset every month? I would assume so.

    • You can apply Smart coupon 3 times in a month. It resets every month. There are also regular coupons which they advertise on their home page usually.

  2. I just purchased a game through Gamivo a month ago. The Gamivo Smart was auto selected, and gave a cost of $0.00.

    Didn’t think anything of it till I got a notice from paypal saying I was just charged $3.16, contacted their “excellent customer service” and was told it is non refundable.

    Nothing saying its a monthly deduction.

    • Gamivo Smart is not automatically selected when you purchase something on Gamivo as that is against the law. But they do offer you, when purchasing, option to buy with regular price or with Gamivo Smart in which case the product price is cheaper. You probably selected that second option.

  3. When I go under the SMART Tab, it shows, “Not a GAMIVO SMART subscriber yet?
    Check out these great perks we’ve prepared for you.” Does that mean I am subscribed yet or no?

  4. WARNING GAMIVO IS A SCAM SITE!!! One of GAMIVO’s current scams concerns their “Smart” subscription, a useless un asked for subscription that automatically kicks in and bills your credit card monthly once you’ve gone through checkout for any purchase. BUYER BEWARE!!!

  5. You didnt, you just said to go to the SMART tab and thats it. Im still getting billed even after my subscription has ended and there is no way on the site to do so. You never went into detail into how to do so.

    • Hi Ray,

      I currently don’t use Gamivo Smart but for me there was always Smart tab on the left sidebar when you login to your Gamivo account along with other tabs like Purchases, Wishlist, etc.

      Under Smart tab you could see when subscription renews and option to cancel it. If there is no such tab anymore, be sure to contact Gamivo support about way to cancel Gamivo Smart.

  6. Ah, found it.
    Yes, you have to press “cancel” in the SMART-section.
    Right next to “change”. – you do not cancel the change, as I first thought.

  7. So it looks like im being scammed. Because i never signed up for the subscription. In fact it still says sign up for it while its still charging me! Only good side paypal is declining it because i dont have anymore money. The sammers took it all!
