Well I just got the last two weeks of hold confirmations all at once.

 

 

Well if you want a strategy guide it's a good deal since that's just over half a $20 off coupon.

Same here. When I wasn't getting any email responses, it felt like something was wrong with their system. The stores had no clue what I was talking about.

 

Now there are stores holding games that I've already picked up a week or two ago.

Okay so if I go to a midnight launch to pick up a game, will they take the $10 PUR coupon? I know that sounds like a silly question to ask, never been to one and all I hear about is coming before midnight and getting a sales receipt and whatnot.  Doesn't sound like they handle it as a normal transaction.

Yes, they have everyone come in and pay for the game (if they still need to) and get their final receipt between 9 and 10 PM so you would do any trades towards what you're picking up and use your coupon then.  The good stores then also give out numbers of groups when you finish doing that so you can leave and come back at 11:30 PM if you want.

 

Basically you pay after the store closes like a normal transaction but they can't give you the game until after midnight.

It's not on the website as used but every store has at least 6-8 copies.  Otherwise there's a number of dollar sports games.

 

Kinect Adventures

 

I don't know if it's company wide but all the stores around here trashed them a week or two ago and I believe someone mentioned they did in their area as well.  A new guy even tried to find one for me while I tried to think of something more exciting than another Link's.

I'm kind of wishing I wasn't banned now and would actually like to pick up a few more of those now that I'm realizing that I really hate the last couple of years sports games.

Crap, I may have to trade Madden in at GS if the TIV is the same. Does anyone know if the 50% will trigger using the 25% off coupon?

any reason as to what you did that you believe got you banned?


I did a LOT of Pokeflips. Including one store where I did 5 Pokeflips at once. The guy said he needed more trade ins for his numbers and offered to do 5 in a row for me. So that was 10 Pokemon games right there. I prolly did atleast another 6+ flips. Along with 5 B2G1s where I would Buy GTA (birthday coupon) and 2 more pokes. Also probably used the birthday coupon 10+ times the last 2 months. So take your pick lol

So after 11/1, we can start to return games since its "holiday" season?

 

Also is the GTA 5 flip still available (I didn't get a chance to do it) but I was reading on the previous thread about iPad flips?

You can return any games purchased after 10/1/13 right now through 1/15/14.

 

You can use your PUR points to get the mystery coupon (25% off pre-owned products) and buy GTA at around $40 and trade it back in for $48 after bonuses. The iPad flip is using the same coupon to get the Gen 4 iPad 16GB at $280 and flipping for around $400

By the receipts the holiday return period started on 10/1.

Yup, Im also going to try and stack it with a $5 off coupon so I'll let you know if its stackable. I only use my pur points for money off, I don't need any of the other stuff they offer. Plus with gta flips 11,000 is nothing.

I also just got my "holds" emails.

Also I'm still not banned as of today anyhow. Traded in one of my links for .02 just to test it. ATK is worth .25

 

 

It stacked btw. Not sure who cares, but yay battlepack for $9.99 lol and a sweet book.

that sucks, i'd argue and ask them why not. and then would show them the receipt where it says so. luckily, multiple gamestop's i've visited basically told me it works that way, as in a rental.

Its corporate policy. Sounds like the store manager needs to have a small conversation with the DM. If the DM's in on it too, than contact the regional vice president.  No way a chain store can make there own policy other than refusing service.

 

It's shit like this that gamestop pull that pisses every off. If i cant screw GME with trade in values or use b-day coupons to get new games cheap, i'll never shop there.

 

 

EDIT: Not to mention, there can be legal ramification as the receipt clearly states the return/exchange policy.

Well it was not the best trade really but I wanted to get my hands on a DS4 (even though I won't be going next gen anytime soon) so I decided to trade in GTA V, Prototype 2, and my extra DS3. Picked up a vanilla Batman:AC and the DS4. Ended up with $5 back after getting 60% on the trade.

 

DualShock 3 $14

 

 

My snap opinion on the DS4 is that it is WAY better than the DS3. The sticks are more stiff and the groove is nice. The triggers and bumpers are place better and the trigger is a huge improvement over the DS3. It is larger but seems lighter (Edit: This would be wrong though, the DS3 weighs 6.125 oz and the DS4 is 7.25 oz). The negatives are the triggers are still not 100% right to me. There needs to be more of a curve still. It also feels a little fragile and the textured underside does not have the grip I would expect. Still WAY better and I am looking forward to using it on some PS3 games. It is still not as good as the 360 controller which for me is as close to perfection for my hands.
