When an order to convert CE's to USED comes down, the extras are all thrown in the trash or the employees take them home. If the GS stores in your area are on the ball, then that may happen the same day the order comes down. Meaning that if you wait till Friday, you might be SOL.
I'm not wasting gas. The only Gamestop's that have it are a good 30 minutes away and I'll only be over there Friday.
Take this SKU in with you as soon as you can to your local GS stores: 270907
If any of them still have one in stock, then you should be able to grab it for the pre-owned price.
Luckily for me, it's showing two of my local stores still having them in stock. Since they're closed now, I may take a trek there tomorrow and use up the remaining $4 on my latest eRewards gc to grab it, hopefully before they gut it and chuck everything else.
Of course, this will be like the 3rd or 4th time I've owned the game.
