I'm still using the site, although traffic has died a lot, it seems. I pretty much only trade for 3DS and DS games. Was able to get Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, MySims Kingdom, and Epic Mickey 3DS in the past month. I check my wishlist many times a day to see if new things pop up. Prices have been inflated recently, but it all seems to be adjusting to a new point level for games. It's not too bad, and I'm getting used to it. Wish more people would come back. It really is a great system. I love being able to trade off 360 games for 3DS games much more easily than in other places.

I just noticed a lot of items high sky rocket the past 2-3 weeks to the point it is almost unreasonable.  Like a month or 2 ago Dangonropna 2 was like 40-50 coin and now it is like wth 90 coin.    It come as a shock since a month ago i was able to get order 1886 and infamous second son for 30 coin each.  Decide it is almost time to jump ship since inflation like this is likely never going back down.  I  try to grab as much item that i have interest in.  Managed to grab killzone 4 for 15 coin, sleeping dog definitive edition steam for 14, ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 vita for 27 and j star victory vs + for 59. 

 

I do miss goozex too, it was pretty good but it went downhill and now 99gamer is going through the same road as well.

ya 99gamers has been selling 25 coins for $10 a lot lately and as you'd expect, that would greatly change the value of coins to being worth less then $1

I am sitting on 450 coins, and hoping to cash them out on something worth while before the site dumps.

Figures,  Finally find someone I can dump some coins on w/ GBA games and when he uploaded pics, i noticed all of them are fakes.  I sadly did not look at the pictures til after the item shipped, so it looks like i'll have to open some disputes. 

 

The other interesting thing is that the guy's profile page doesnt seem to exist anymore.  http://99gamers.com/.../feedback_games

I am still using 99Gamers a lot. While it has slowed down, it's still useful. I like that there are lots of categories to buy from. The point values can be high sometimes, but what with the $10 for 25 coins that I bought a few weeks ago, and the fact that my own things I trade sell for higher values than things used to, it balances out. 

 

Sold a pack of Amiibo cards the other day for 12 coins (which retail for $6 per pack), after figuring out I had no interest in them. Planning to trade away some Club Nintendo merchandise in the future. 

 

This month, I've gotten an open Pikachu Amiibo (my first Amiibo), Jewel Master: Cradle of Rome 2 3DS, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future DS, and I have Blue Dragon Plus DS and Mahjong 3D for the 3DS on the way. I have also bought two different sets of Pokemon boosters for the online card game. 

 

I'm down to 24 coins, but I hope to list some stuff soon to get more coins. I tried to check out GameTZ, but I haven't had luck there so far. When you typically only have one thing to trade at a time, that site doesn't seem as useful. Also, as I have some 360 games I am still trying to get rid of and want no more 360 games, it makes it difficult to get things I want -- those being nearly exclusively Nintendo-systems games.

Things normalized a bit now.  This week i manage to grab Assassin Creed iv for 27 coin.  Another thing is that 99gamer allow you to trade away old blu ray and dvd like goozex does before.  One thing I hate is some people list games for over 100 coins, which i am pretty sure no one in the right mind would buy it/  Ok maybe nto hate but annoyed when a notification pop up in my email and it is unreasonable prioce like Until Dawn for 150 coin lol

Seems traffic and the user base on the site is going down.  Check out Alexa's traffic rankings.

I saw a few high priced items in the Everything Else area. Are you looking for pretty much anything such as Xbox One/PS4 games? If you dont mind paying the high prices.

I am down to 280 from over 600.  

 

Bought a SiriusXM receiver, and a Kindle Paperwhite which I'll actually use. Got good deals on both.

 

Wish they would close all the accounts with no login in more than 6 months.

But I think they feel it will reduce the inventory greatly.

I won't buy if the person hasn't logged in for a while.

 

I think 1 out of 3 trades is a bust. Which is sad.

It's completely gone now.  I'm sure they'll be refunding me a cash equivalent for my remaining coins any day now.

RIP 99Gamers you had a few good years. Glad I zero'ed out my coins. Goozex/VG5 taught me a lesson

the entire thing about a lawsuit made me laugh.   This  idoits have no idea what they are talking about and good luck getting a  lawsuit against the company.  I had 151 coins left   people knew the site was dying  6 months back (had 400 coins then and was able to dump a lot)  

 

 

anyone know of any other site like this or are sites like this a thing of the past.... not sure how people can lose money on these type of sites *unless you join in the last few months before it flops:

 

i think i lost  

30,000+ pts on goozex  but still came out   100s ahead

4000 + on  vggames and still came out ahead

151  on  99 games and came out  way head  

 

 

just buy games cheap 

 

leaptrade will be the next one to flop    55.00 buck there and never got a trade in a year

Yeah, 99Gamers seems to be gone. I had noticed that everything was disappearing from the site recently. I ended with about 36 in coins. Shoulda got some Steam games or something. But I had been checking, and there was nothing I really wanted anyway. 

 

It was good while it lasted. Doesn't seem to be anything else out there as good as that site.

I just started Gameflip. I'm really liking it so far

Good selection (Though the PC list is a bit stuffed with random key listings)

Can cash out to Paypal.

10% commission on physical, 12% on digital. Some might see a commission as a bad thing, but the simple truth is that these are business and they need to make money to justify their existence, and a commission fee ensures a steady income without having to resort to more scummier methods.
