How long does it take for the bonuses from the renewal on Saturday to show up? Points take forever to arrive for me. I have an order I did on 22nd and points haven't shown up yet.

Had a busted fat ps4 and still got the $50 bonus on it. I'm a regular the store so I typically throw down a reserve when I do stuff like this, also renewed for the bonus.

So a Switch should get $225 right? I’ve got a V1 that I replaced with the Animal Crossing V2 I need to get rid of.

EDIT: What would I need to take? The tablet, joy cons, and charger? Or do the require the dock and accessories as well?

I just sold a Switch with the standard setup for $240 super quickly, so unless if you're in a state that's giving CSaC, I'd just sell it on Offer Up. People are still buying Switch systems.

It should be posted tomorrow night for everyone to see. I was able to get a early look since it just came in today to stores.

I took a picture of it

Interesting to run the 50% and +5 at the same time. I doubt they stack though.

Well if GS actually updates the DotD price of BLOPS III for X1, we'll finally have a boomerang.

PS4 version would also be a boomerang with the 50% bonus.

Traded in yesterday and got $372.20 in credit to add to the pile.

Most high value Switch games bombed in trade value down to $22 base. Even with the 50% bonus on top of Pro, that's $35.20 in credit. Better off waiting for a bump and getting the extra 20% from reserving on top of Pro to get $39 in credit on a $30 base.

Well, pretty much everything I want to trade in held or went up with one minor exception so here comes a lot of extra credit for me.

Hmm... any stuff worth a future flip with today's DOTD 4/$60? I see godeater 3 for switch might be good starting tomorrow w/ the 50% bump...

God Eater 3 for switch is $27.99 so it won't count towards the deal. Most games that are $24.99 seem to be trading in for $7-8 so even flipping with the 50% bonus wouldn't be worth it. Maybe if you wanted to convert some credit to cash you could buy 4 popular games and sell for $15 each on Offer Up and get 1:1 credit to cash.

Its $55 used and I just need the $30 filler, but I've bought most games I would've normally picked up. I believe if I did return the new game, they would deduct the price of the discount on the used one from it, unless things have changed?

I've never actually done it so I don't know what would happen if you attempted to return the new game.

 

Edit: With regards to below, I wouldn't do this return often to get the 30% discount. I'd imagine you would be flagged eventually.

Any games about $30 that would be good for a future flip just to trigger then 30% off? Ideally for the switch right now.

Many of the $30 new / $28 used games will get $10 base. If the value holds you can get $16 back from the one you get with the 50% bonus that is supposed to come up. Were you looking to get 30% off a $55 game? I'd imagine you could just return the new game, but too much of that could get you flagged.

Welp, time to check some before and afters on stuff I've had sitting around.

I took advantage of the $5 extra a bit with some boomerangs. I found some games that were on the Buy 5 get 50% off $19.99 or Less deal that were trading in for $5 or $7 base and out of those I kept the one game I wanted out of the 5 I bought and saved a bit on it while getting points.

went to use my march certificate today and was greeted with this.

 

wouldn't expect a vague sign like this in a mall.  Some dinky small town maybe.

 

Spoiler

Oh boy, the worker had the nerve to eat their lunch instead of work all day. The impudence of the serf!

Hmm.. I have the birthday discount on my account... that's only good for a single title with no other promos, right?

My guess it depends on the promo. I was able to combine mine with the MAR10 sale the other week.

Is there any way to buy Steam credit with GS credit? I imagine the cards don't work but can they print a code on a receipt like with XBL and PSN?

Yes they can do that. I have purchased Steam bux in this way in the past with credit.

They couldn't even bump up the trade value of wii sports! :-(

I haven't heard anything in So Cal about that 10% bump, hope it happens here though.

My bday coupon expires soon, wondering if I should just buy a game that trades in for $30 to get that 30% bonus. Between that and the 20% off, I'd about break even on a game with a base of $48 to buy and get free points.

 

Maybe one of the MAR10 games will pop back up to $30 base? Most likely Mario Maker 2.

 

No switch games I'm interested in at the moment.

If this is frowned upon I apologize but I have a $200 GS gift card that I want to use on an XSS. But if I can get it somewhere else, I might consider it.


Then I’d be stuck with the $200 gift card. Other than spending it over time on games (I honestly could do that this year) is there any way to convert it to cash? My only idea would be to buy a large item used, then return it with satisfaction guarantee, but would they then put on a gift card instead of cash/credit card?

It’s a first world problem for sure any advice is appreciated.

See if anyone wants EShop/PSN/Xbox credit and offer a 10% discount. I sold a bunch of EShop this way early last year using credit to fund the cards.

Are the $39 Mario games new or pre-owned? I can't get the picture big enough to tell

New, crossed out price is $59.99

So -sorry, just clarifying- an Xbox One 500gig that's listed as trading for $75 right now will get a $50 bonus? So $125, total?

I'm assuming that's credit only, not if you choose cash?

Thanks for the info.

Yes, the bonus is credit only.

Do you remember what the refurb fee was? $40 or $60?

Refurb fee depends on the system, I think it was $50-60 though since I got about $170 in credit for the PS4 pro.
