seems gta v held, still got a copy to get rid of. 

 

does anyone know if GS will be doing that Xbox One upgrade thing like Amazon and BB?  I might decide to "upgrade" at GS as it'd likely be easier to return x1 games.

Pretty sure it has to do with either:

1. GS clerk putting your DL/ID # into the system.

2. Changing profile info on the PUR website.

 

Did either of those happen for you?

 

I got the member update on my PUR account after completing a trade in which the clerk input my DL#.

 

For Scenario 1, possibly also GS clerk inputting a birthday? Every once in a while a GS clerk will ask me for my birthdate; don't quite remember if it's only for trade-ins or just entirely random.

I know but I realized that I don't think anyone ever posted it in the excitement that there were 50 cent PC games. They might have, but if I had missed it that means someone else had likely missed it as well.

True, it did take me awhile to find out what the alternative was for ATK. Luckily someone posted it here.

I got 2 more B1G1, tempted to do 1 more Pokeflip. I already did it twice but looking to get a cheap copy of BF4.

Has anyone actually tried using the 25% off pre-owned coupon yet to see if it's working correctly?  As you all recall, the Wii/DS B1G1 coupon did not work during its first 2 days.

 

Also, with regards to everyone freaking out about the "Member Update 0" status, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned what I think is the obvious theory.  I think all means is that your power-up points balance has been updated/credited to reflect points you've earned on recent purchases and trade-ins as of whatever date it lists.

Yes. Only if you buy it from them and are a power up rewards member.

It might be because I changed my phone number. I'm just glad I was able to trade-in. I did one B1G1 Pokemon flip and an iPad flip this summer, felt like a total ass both times btw, but that's all. I don't think I'll do those things again because it pretty much felt like stealing to me. But to each their own.

So they are selling ipad 4 16gb for $377, if you have a store near you that has it, you can use the 25% coupon making it $280.

 

It trades back in for $420 with 30% bonus.  If you use trade in credit to negate tax, it's an easy ~$140 trade in credit profit.

 

I would do this but I've traded in like 5 ipads already in the past 3 months.

 

And just when I thought I was done...I get roped right back in.

Exactly.  I'm thinking about doing a boomerang after work (with 2 different power up accounts) to get the credit for a 2ds...and I have no idea what Id even do with one.

Very tempting. Too bad CA tax ruins some of the deal but still a nice profit. To do or not to do

Anybody tried the coupon yet? I tried to use the code online and it said it was not valid at this time. I wonder if we will have the same issue as last week with the deal not activating in the system for a few days.

For me at least, I am quite certain I saw him typing in my DL# - but I was on the far side of the number keypad.

I think they do enter the birth date as well since he commented on my DL expiring.

For this deal - why not pick up a cheap used product while you're there and get the 50% bonus instead of 30%?

 

Am I missing something?

50% goes to games, accessories, etc. not tablets, smartphones, electronics.

 

30% to all that.

I think it's 30% for systems/tablets/so on, and 50% for games/accessories when you buy a used product.  I'd love to be proven wrong though.

Gotcha - thanks for the clarification. The deal mentions accessories, but I wanted to be sure.

 

Edit - does the Best Buy 100% apply only to video games and not electronics? Because, if so...

Where are you getting $420 from? Am I missing something?

I see:

$305 Base for Like New = $396.50, or $409.50 when trading with cable

$267 Base for Good = $347.10, or $360.10 when trading with cable

For doing something like this do they take down serial # and other info on the tab?

I'm just wondering if theres some way they can track it? It seems like a good idea maybe 1 or 2 times but not more than that.

TIV 10/28

360 - Prototype 2 - $4

I'm not banned! I survived a 6 Pokeflip and 5 GTA5 flips. Now on to my next endeavor. Which was just posted. :)
Also 50% doesn't stack with Battlefield B1g1. I only paid 10 cents for BFBC1 and BFBC2 since P2 stayed $4 base.

I'm just curious, are you (and anyone else doing these sort of flips) using 1 power up rewards account or multiple?  In my area they don't require a drivers license and I think I've managed to avoid the hammer by spreading out flips over 3 accounts.

I have 3 accounts, but I haven't used them yet. I'm going to ride this account until the wheels fall off.

I feel bad now. The District Manager sent me a reply against the guy who declined me for the 50% promotion. He told that guy was properly following the promotion and the Manager at Gamestop #2 isn't enforcing it right. He told me he would personally talk with store #2 and make sure they follow the promotion. consistently I hope the guy doesn't get it trouble.

 

Dont feel too bad for them as its not mutual when they screw over there uninformed customers and shoves used games (@ new price, selling use as new, etc) and subs down their throat.

Yes, they input the serial into the trade. They put in the serial number and print up a "quote" page with the serial after they have graded the condition of the item condition. Since they do that, it's probably best to not go apeshit on boomeranging ipads at GS - unless you want to be banned.

10% PUR doesn't apply to electronics trade in. Even then, the math doesn't work to get the $420 he says.
