Just getting back from a few GameStops, I won big.

>Take the risk to buy two copies of pre-owned GTA V after selling the previous copy I had to best buy for $45, pick Mahvel Supah Heroes as my game

>Head over to the other part of town after waiting an hour and get a refund on the two copies of GTA V, keep Mahvel.

>Repeat this method with the other two GameStop's in my town, except I pick The Last Of Us

>End up getting $109 back + the $45 from the xtra GTA V, giving me $154, use $25 for gas

>Use accumulated PowerUp Rewards points to get free PowerUp Rewards Pro afterwards at the original gamestop

 

>mfw after everything was done and done

I'll probably also flip TLoU to Best Buy once I'm done playing it since I've heard it's really short

Eh. I doubt they'd let you return like that. GameStop isn't that dumb.

How would that give you 15,000 points for spend on a PUR Pro membership? And it takes a day to register as points...

On a whim, I decided to pull into a Gamestop on my way home to see if this B2G1 and trade in GTAV would work and it totally did. I snagged a Ps3 and 360 copy of GTAV and then they had a complete Limited Edition of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 that they just received in today for my third game.

 

After checking out, I explained to the employee that I wanted to sell the GTAV's back to them for 48.00 each with the promos. He thought about it and after doing the math, he said, "That's BRILLIANT! Totally brilliant!!" I bought an $0.89 copy of Guitar Hero DS to trigger the promo and walked out of the same store with the $3 LE KH 1.5, $1 GH DS, and $95 of credit (that I already planned on using during Black Friday anyways).

 

Great deal!! Thanks a ton to whoever originally put that together!

I think he just used the wrong word. He probably traded them in.

I don't have the Pro membership, but the other day I did the B2G1 (online) and got the 10% off that Pro would usually get.  Is anyone still getting that discount that isn't Pro also?

Yeah sooooo, Yakuza isn't for me. If I can even find the receipt, it would probably be YMMV trying to return it since the guy gave me Yakuza 4 instead of 3, wouldn't it?

I firmly believe they did consecutive B2G1 weekends just to lay down the banhammer. Honestly, some people just plain deserve it. There's finding creative ways to get a game for cheap or to flip credit between companies and then there's flat out theft. Is the thirst that real? Returning two games and keeping the free one is the weakest hustle I've ever heard of in my life. It not only takes the most brain dead employee possible but it also takes an old school WWF cartoony heel to be the one to try it.

Go back to the store you went to and explain xwhat happened. The computer will show how many Yakuza 4 they have and when he checks he should notice a 4 missing but a extra 3 left.

Also, I should probably ask, does the Holiday Policy even work the same way?

 

This was during the 1st B2G1 sale and it's past the normal 7 day window.

 

Edit: I was also looking through my receipts and noticed something, on my GTA V receipt, from launch day, there's a code for B2G1 Preowned coupon to use between 9/19 and 9/29. Did everyone get one of those? The employee didn't mention it

Yea I think there was a thread about it. Check the first page, it shows the terms for the Holiday return policy

yeah that coupon was great for GTA pickups, was able to use that and the B2G1 for PRO signup to build some good GS credit.  Worked out well.

Probably should have tried to get to GS today to see if I could snag the 2 GTAs I traded in yesterday but just didnt have time.

If there's a fool to exploit legally, go ahead and exploit mate.
 Especially at companies like GameStop.

I bought 2 GTAs and had to choose Last of Us as the 3rd game because they were out of stock. It was only when I got home that it occurred to me that Last of Us needs an online pass.

 

Is Last of Us one of the games that Gamestop has a relationship with in which they are supposed to print an online pass code on your receipt? I can't remember but it seemed like Sony had some arrangement with Gamestop that some 1st-party used games are provided with online passes. Any1 remember the specifics about a deal like this, possibly with a different publisher if I'm wrong?

Not any more. I too bought a TLOU and got no code, I bought one 2 months ago and that one didn't print either. : (

That is pretty genius, but I feel bad for the employee because he might get fired.

I went today to purchase a Kindle card and my store still had signs all over the place, even on the front door, about the b2g1 free. Should've tried doing it with the SOTW coupon. grr

Did you pay for it or was it the free game?  If you paid for it they would probably be willing to just return that one and sell you a different one as long as it would be more than the game you had gotten free.  If it was the free game it's going to be YMMV, as I mentioned in the previous thread, because that would mean they would have to manually mark the new game down to free.  Normally in these situations they have to return all three and repurchase them so the promo triggers.
