Anyone get any confirmation or leaked information regarding an extension?

If not, does anyone know if today or tomorrow is the exact end date? On the website is says it expires the 20th, but I'm not sure if it'll still be active tomorrow.

I haven't flipped many games but I have the same problem with employees blurting out how much credit I have on my card. I'm saving for a Wii ya nosy b*tch!


I hate that they almost scream out your credit total. I've been in not so good neighborhoods and it makes me cringe when they announce to the whole store that I have $xxx.xx left on my Edge card.

TIV for HC:CW 360 dropped to $5.

*edit* Also picked up a copy of Mario Kart Wii for my bro. I think most GS are getting them back in stock. I had asked before a other GS and they said to check back at the end of July.

Ugh, yeah. I posted something similar before. The cashier tested my by asking me how much credit I had, handed me my card, then told the next group of people how much credit I had. I've resorted to splitting my credit amongst several cards.

ok, so I just traded in

Sonic (PS3) - $6
Stuntman - (PS3) - $5
The Bigs - (PS3) - $6
Motorstorm (PS3) - $6

I got $5 added to each with the promo for a total of $43. The thing is I traded them in for soul calibar 4 and was supposed to get 20% extra credit. I asked the guy and he said he did it but it doesn't say it anywhere on the receipt. Would it show up on the receipt, was the 20% added before the $5 each, or did he screw me over? If he did I'm going back tomorrow to sort it out. Thanks

You can only get one promo at a time, so they would need to maually override to give you two promos. I hope you at least got an extra 10% with your edge card.

Nothing to see here, move along!

Well, if they told you that, maybe you should go down there are argue with them. Eh, but Im not sure how easy it'll be to adujust after the trade in.

The deal is not extended, so closing Sunday 7/20 is it for this one. The new deal starting Monday is a trade 3 extra 10%, 4 extra 20%, 5+ extra 30%, along with a bunch of other stuff like trade 2 games from a list and get select titles for 19.99 or 9.99 (depending on title) Flyers for that should be in stores Monday (or sooner if you can get one early from an employee)

So does that mean this promo is good THROUGH tomorrow 7/20? God I hope so. Still have about 10 games I want to trade in. :pray:

Anyone know for sure one way or the other?

Traded a few games in earlier tonight... the guy said that the promo wasn't ringing up automatically, like it usually does when I go in. Just make sure you check your receipts in these final day(s).

Hmmm.. Thats funny. I traded in a hoard of BBV games today in stacks of 12-14 games apiece at multiple Gamestops in my area and the promo came up automatically every time ! :)

The last store manager was so cool that when he came in, he told me that he got a phone call about me from another store (not from a manager) who was asking about me and thought I seemed "shady" since I was trading in so many games at once and many dup titles. This store manager laughed at the other Gamestop employee and told me not to worry and that he is totally cool with my trades. He told the other store I was legit and to chill out. He knows what I am doing and wished he could do some flipping for profit himself but was told that Gamestop frowns on that for employees ! He told the other store that called about me that I was legit and what I was doing was totally legal (and of course I had receipts for all my purchases which I offered to each store before they could even think of asking) He even told me he would take ALL my leftover games so I gave him stack after stack(even with some duplicates) and he took them all and didn't even charge me 1 refurb fee ! He was the BEST MANAGER ever !

With Gamestop stores, its all about RELATIONSHIPS people. Get to know the managers or assistant managers and give them a pre-order or two since this is the REAL WAY to give them a HIGH FIVE BACK. You scratch their back and they will scratch yours..

Xfactor

P.S. Oh yeah, the promo bonus came up automatically every time on each and every one of my stacks of 12-14 games per stack ! :D

P.P.S. And yes, I did take all the BBV stickers off first which are now cluttering up my car...hahaha...

P.P.P.S. I will also check all my receipts for most current TIV and update/add to the OP even though io has been doing a MASTERFUL JOB. How the heck does he do so much everywhere and have a family and kids ?! :bow:

I don't mind giving the high five, but I want to know what to do when you dont want the game. Also how much of a high five is it for them? I know they get a bonus, but how much of a bonus?

I'm not sure about bonus for pre-orders now, but when I worked for Gamestop the bonus was they got to keep their jobs.

Yup, I definitely put a preorder on Force Unleashed to help the guy out. Figure that since I'm making all the credit I need, I might as well. And plus, getting something for free quickly, rather than after building up credit for months, is certainly gratifying. :D

So is today the last day or yesterday was the last? I'm gonna try out a little flipping today. Maybe just a fatal inertia to bb and I'll put it all on fallout...

Apparently no one has ever used any coupon, ever. The expiration date on ANYTHING is the last day you can use it.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Are you talking about the $10 Bonus? It isn't a coupon, its an automatic store bonus thats why people were wondering.
