#2 and #3 were "GS dude bros"
 
I am probably just bitter that the stack of coupons where just sitting there and he didn't want to give me one. Sorry If I offended anyone with the race remark.


I'm guessing "GS dude bros" = white guys?

Stop! Lol

It makes it worse that you said it because you were bitter.

How much do I have to put down to preorder a system? I want the Adavance Warfare Xbox One Bundle but every time I call they put me on hold for 10 minutes and never come back to the phone.

Consoles are usually $100 down. That's what it was for me when I preordered Day one edition. It might have changed since then though.

I just drove by a GS and it looked like they had a sign up that if you preordered Madden or NBA 2k you would get an extra 30%. I thought those bonuses were dead. Has anyone else seen that? If it is going on that might be a great way to get ahead of some credit with the increased trade-in values.

That store is probably just full of lazy employees who forgot or don't want to take the sign down.

Next time you're there just take the coupons. You said you saw them right? Just take them.

Is there any kind of pre-order deal or special promotion going on now or soon that I could use to net a little more for a PS4 trade in?

Other than the 50% extra next week (which is for games only, so unfortunately, that doesn't help you), Gamestop doesn't have promos anymore.

Man that's a bummer. Right now I would only be netting about $30 more via a Craigslist transaction but I'm honestly always really wary about those. There's just too much to worry about from people being creepers to fake money, etc.

I honestly always use a counterfeit money marker to check the bills for that reason, the markers to test the bills aren't that much money

And this is a coupon on deal, correct? If it isn't I'll definitely get in on that!

Everybody saying gamestop doesn't do promos anymore.... does that mean they currently don't have a promo or that they never will?

the 50% coupon promo requiring a coupon is the last promo they are doing after that promos are done for good. GameStop revamped there trade program

Never say never but yeah from this point forward they aren't doing any promos outside of possible preorder incentive only bonus promos. I am guessing we will now rely more on PUR Steal of the Week's and coupons printing on receipts for anything going forth.

Well I was shot down at both local gamestops trying to get a 50% coupon..

 

Told me they didn't know what I was talking about. Pshhhhhhhhh.

 

So I'll be that guy, if anyone has an extra to send my way, I will donate significant karma points to you. They are very useful.

Ok so the 50% will apply on the total transaction, not only 1 highest value game?

Can we rename this thread to failed attempts at getting a 50% coupon and begging for 50% coupons?

thanks I might ended up getting one cheaper but I just needed to know this for a backup plan.

Never under-estimate the deception of Game$top. I went in today with some games I got from the TRU clearance blast. Specifically, Dead Space 3 LE :360: [bought for $2, TIV app said I would get $5], Just Dance 2014 :wiiu: [bought for $7 for the Wii Remote+, TIV for $10 game-only], and BeyBlade: Metal Masters :ds: bought for $3.50. TIV estimate on the app was $9. I was pumped. Go into the store today after re-checking the values. He rings up all three and I only get $18 in store credit. I look and see that I got the correct TIV for Dead Space and Just Dance, but I was only getting $3 for BeyBlade. I objected and showed him the entry on the app that said it was saying I'd get $9. He 'looks through' the computer and only sees the $3 value, says he'll have to email someone about it. Ended up having to pay 2 bucks and some change for the game I came into get instead of walking out with some credit left. 

At least he let me keep the top that was bundled. But really it left a sour taste in my mouth.

Did you save the Trade Estimate? The app says it has to be honored within the same business day, though I don't know what else the employee could have done since there isn't a barcode or anything to scan to ensure the higher value.

The manager could of easily overrode it.

The store I just went to to return LoU at from last week still had a stack of coupons by each register and the girl gave me one when I asked, no problem.

Just frustrating that the 53.xx had to go on a GC and not my pur card.

Welp! My bad. Haha. I misread the coupon. As far as getting them is concerned, are you guys really having a hard time despite asking for them? They should be given to you when you purchase something, pre-order, or trade something in...

Did you read the last page or so of posts? They said why they are no longer supposed to be given out. Be careful when giving advice, make sure you're right before you do so. Less complaining from newbs when they find out the information is wrong.

Well I understand why they are not supposed to be given out any more, I work there. My question was more directed at those who might have been having trouble prior to the ending of the event.
