GameStop President Day Sale (article by Gamespot - S. Petite)

 

- Buy 2 Get 1 Free on all used games

 

Starts tomorrow & sale ends Feb. 15

Free points and a bit of credit for trading in:

 

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - $39 after 30% bonus. $43.20 + tax cost

Smash Bros Ultimate - $39 after 30% bonus. $43.20 + tax cost

LoZ Breath of the Wild - $39 after 30% bonus. $43.20 + tax cost

 

If you get lucky and find 3 of them at a store, cost would be roughly $93 in credit and you'd get $112 credit after the $5 down.

there a few more $30 trade in switch games. Not sure what the $43.20 is though?

$48 for used then -10% for Pro discount

 

Also, while games like Animal Crossing NH are also $30 base, the cost is $55 base used. So not nearly as good to get.

mario 3d world is $55 though

the discount for the $48 games would just the b2g1 promo so $32 per game or $36.67 for 3 $55 games.

AFAIK Pro discount stacks with B2G1. Unless something changed since the last time I did this.

They got rid of the pro discount over a year ago so must have been a while since you last did it.

Yep, been a long time then. Welp I still have my Jan $5 off.

It's February bud.

I'm well aware, my Jan coupon expires on the 15th of Feb. Probably due to the date that I renewed my Pro.

Adding in that Mario Odyssey also is $30 base TIV today and is also $48 before tax.

 

Smash Ultimate

Mario Odyssey

LoZ Breath of the Wild

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

 

3 of these will get you $117 in TIV credit for $103.xx in credit cost (at least where I am).

One of my local Gamestops is closing, are there any recommendations for good boomerangs with used games being 40% off?

 

Also, how long before consoles end up going on sale? They've got a Mario Game and Watch, but MSRP is too steep for me. I might nab it if it goes below $30 though.

Any switch games that have a $48 base cost but trade for $30 base like Breath of the Wild. If you do the pre-order bonus it's points + ~$9 in credit per game.

I got an order in with a confirmation email but no $30 gc yet. At least I got some PS4 games I can toss in with a system I plan on selling. :D

 

Edit: GC came through. Trying for one more order.

Put in a 2nd order for delivery and it's been 30 minutes with no GC. Hoping it is just taking a while. GC is in the order confirmation.

 

Edit: Just had to complain about it. I used the 2 gift cards to get SM3dW + BF.

They may be putting a hold on gift codes for now to buy time for them to eliminate the void the gift cards.  Worst case scenario

Glad I got my order in right away just in case.

Basically someone walks in with something we'd all want (maybe a limited edition 3DS) and while the employee is ringing in the trades I walk up to the customer and offer him $20 more in cash than what the employee is offering. It's tempting to do but very fucked up.

I got banned from my old GS that I used to work out years ago for doing this. I had just quit anyway, so I didn't care.

Switch Lites also dropped to $100 base from $125.

I'm going to call later but does anyone know if they will take in an Xbox One S that doesn't make it to make it to the home screen? It powers and displays but even after trying the offline update, it won't get past 50% on the setup screen before throwing up the "Something went wrong" screen.

Typically they will but will charge a refurb fee. I traded in a PS4 Pro that had a blinking blue light last month.




#14382323 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by Kuros on 05 March 2021 - 05:43 PM in Video Game Deals

Thanks, I believe you still get the trade in bonus even if they charge the refurb fee, so I imagine this is the best I'm ever going to do.

You do. I got the $50 bonus on the ps4 pro.

Posted by Kuros on 05 March 2021 - 06:23 PM in Video Game Deals

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
