This is very YMMV, but I was in a GS in Puerto Rico and I saw that the EA cards are $5 off, or $15 for a $20 card. Hopefully this deal is available elsewhere because GS PR is generally pretty good about following US deals.

I don't know the answer of the top of my head, but I would assume you can find the answer to your question in 1 of the first few posts on the first page of this thread. check behind the spoilers

craigslist, most of us have also built up a nice war chest of them from flipping consoles, deals, etc.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

I dont think people are really flipping but rather are just getting rid of extra/older controllers for good money since BBY/Target/AMZN has had sales on them for $40-45 new lately and we might see them as low as $35 before X-mas

Anybody know if I can stack an unemployment check, social security, disability, and my paycheck for a quad stack?


:applause:

NO. SS & disability cannot be stacked together!!!

:applause:
I do believe however that you can actually stack Social Security OR Disability with Unemployment, just not both.
Of course, Paycheck stacks with anything for the automatic bump but I'm sure you already knew that.:rofl:

You can actually get more money with SS and SSI (type of disability) though.

If gs is stopping taking preorders on wii u does that mean no more bonus system trade in promo can be applied to your wii u preorder?

went to a gamestop that rejected one of my wireless 360 remotes because the joystick rubber was knicked, 1 cm piece was missing tops. So I just went to the one across the street, 0.05 miles away and they accepted both, paid full amount toward nsmb wii u, then the employee moved the rest of the credit went towards wii u pre-order. Out of pocket was 21.99 for the 32 gig bundle. I am wondering now if they will charge me tax for the mario game. When I asked the employee about it he repeated twice, its "completely paid off." I'm sure he can't possibly be right but im just trying to see what other peoples experiences were...

^If you've paid the full amount using your store credit, then you've paid the full amount. It's over and done with. They can't tack on charges for a completed transaction that is paid off in full regardless of it was tax free or not. In some places, using store credit for an entire purchase will secure the purchase without tax. It's that way in Georgia which serves as an added perk to using store credit.

Dunno if it's been mentioned, but the extra 25% for trading four games appears to be active. Got it whilst trading towards existing preorders and getting my Neo Geo X Gold deposit down.

Bases for 9/14, all :360:

Singularity - $2
Dirt Showdown - $16
Max Payne 3 - $17
Persona 4 Arena - $18

All for :360: on 9/14

Mass Effect - $10
Mass Effect 2 - $5
Witcher 2 - $13
Gears of War Triple Pack - $6
Gears of War 3 - $7.50
Kinect Adventures - $0.02
Nier - $2.50
Lost Odyssey - $3
Tales of Vesperia - $13

External 120GB HD - $11.25
External 20GB HD - $3.75
Network N Adapter (No disc needed) - $32
Rechargeable Battery Pack - $1.50
Play & Charge Kit - $4
360 wireless controller - $22.50

I think I came out okay. With promos I ended up trading the 360 and games/accessories for about $325. The employee let me just put $5 down on NSMB wiiU and get the 30% bonus. Also when I got in there they told me they were going to stop taking preorders for the 32GB wiiU within the hour so I was pretty lucky. Ended up paying off the wiiU and $5 on Mario. Pretty excited. I had no plans on getting the new Wii but I have a couple months to do some research and make sure it is what I want. I mostly play PS3 these days so the 360 was collecting dust anyways.

Does it have to be 4 for the same system or can I combine? and does it stack with the 30% towards pre-orders?

Doesnt stack, whichever is higher. And it doesnt need to be the same system.

Just the game, not the guitar/drums.

Yep. Got $101.40 ($78 base) for 8GB 4th Gen iPod Touch putting $5 down on NSMB U.

If gs is stopping taking preorders on wii u does that mean no more bonus system trade in promo can be applied to your wii u preorder?

Good question. Guess you can't put it toward a pre-order you can't do. I did the $25 pre-order on the Deluxe, but also want to trade-in my extra PS3 for $150. I asked if I already have a pre-order if I could get the hardware deal later (since the promo runs until 9/23). He said if need be he'll just cancel the first pre-order and make a new one to get it to apply.

Any GS employees want to chime in here?

Those promos are weird sometimes. It could do one of 3 things:

  • Add it automatically
  • Require a coupon code from our marketing book
  • Require the correct item to be added for the promotion to activate.

Just be careful about cancelling a pre-order since we've already taken out the WiiU Deluxe pre-order.

So there's really no clear answer, huh?

Usually hardware bonuses are automatic. But like I said if it requires a coupon code, they need to scan the marketing book. If it specifies that you need to pre-order to activate, then you'd lose out since you already have it and might require manager override (if possible). So it's possible YMMV.
