This is why losing toysrus sucks. Less competition, means less incentive to bring the customer in. If gamestop goes, you can forget about anyone even trying

TRU was never a viable competitor to GS.  It's only BB at this point and if they do bail from having GCU, GS will be the only option unfortunately.  I don't see Target/Walmart as a major factor either.

You mean like when it was $120 for two years?  And it would occasionally go on sale for $30 for two years.  Silly Best Buy..

 

I remember when it was $120, and you had to do things like buy a prepaid cell phone (wut?) to get it down to $30.

yep, I did that to get multiple years of GCU....I forgot what I ended up doing with those phones but I know I don't have them anymore.

What happened with Best Buy and Amazon's trade-in program the past six months or so in regards to being able to trade-in newer releases?  For years I bounced between whichever had the better price for newer games I either didn't enjoy or that I was ready to move on from.  There was never a time I couldn't trade a game in at both sites.  Now, I almost never see new releases available for trade-in on Amazon and Best Buy has getting worse in this regard as well.

 

I have Prime and Gamers Club so I'd rather get credit from either of them than trade stuff into GameStop and pay full price for something else.

Best Buy has added a lot of titles into their trade system, but the values are still relatively average/below average considering no bonuses (besides GCU).

Thanks I noticed that yesterday; I'll take what I can get at this point.  Amazon still isn't listing most newer releases back to the late summer (at least whatever I search for).  Guess I need to be a little more judicial with my new game buying and hold off on sales for iffy ones.

What’s the longest anyone has waited for a gift card? They got my trade shipment on March 12 and I still haven’t heard Word one.

It’s YMMV but they’re supposed to. I have one store that won’t, and one that will.

For those that say Best Buy doesn’t pay out, just wanted to contribute that I too had to email Best Buy after they had received my trades a week prior, but I was eventually paid.

Does 70% stack with the extra $5 for switch games? If not these values suck.

YMMV. If I have the case, they just check if the correct disc is being traded. As far as not having the case, it’s hit or miss for me if the store will accept the trade.

When I have traded in store, they also usually flip the disc over and look for any deep scratches.
