Can you give details on what you did? I'm curious because so far I've trade in a few ps4s and xbox ones and returned them. Still not banned. 3 different stores tho. (and fresh ps4s/xbones, I wasn't buying one and then returning it and repeating the process for pur points. They were legitly mine)

He bought a lot of 360 slim adapters on the cheap and was flipping them to GS non stop. It was a matter of time once the bans starting flying on one account for others to follow or lp to take notice.

 

Also, if you aren't flipping excessively and are discreet about it by spreading them out over time, you will be fine on your end. I just wouldn't go gungho unless you are planning to go out with a bang. On your end you should be fine as long as you don't exceed limit of 4. The 5th one gets you noticed and flagged. Also, if you do big ticket trades in short span (like 2 slim adapters) will get you noticed but doesn't mean it will get you banned unless you continue in your ways.

Do you get a notice about the flag or is it something that shows up on the PUR account? I would assume 2 ps4 and 2 xbones would get me flagged and its within a week. O.O

 

I also kept two kinects so I'm planning on trading those in once they're accepted and probably stop for a while.

I talked to a very nice and helpful lady at GS about XBONE Kinect trade-ins and she checked her computer and said not yet but seemed to think it would be a reality very soon.

 

Now to decide if I want to keep mine…

May as well depending on how much they give you. Only keeping one since I believe the workout games require it?

Yes, but you'll just get a generic headset value.

I looked at the site and it still lists it at full price and half for pre owned version. I see that Gamefly has it used to $13 should I bite at that price instead?

I logged in to PUR pro to notice my subs were cancelled on my bogus accts and my points were wiped with those accts as well. The general manager T the gamestop I go to hasn't received official word about it though in regards that I can't trade in but I won't trade for a while. Flipped about 35 adapters in 2 weeks ;D

So what was going on with these adapters? What did you get them for, and what were they offering in trade?

trading in towards the destiny bundle with the extra 50% doesn't require any override on the managers part right? I skimmed over the past few pages but I just want to be sure

Do they take it on trade (they obviously did at one time), and if so, what do they give? I wouldn't mind selling it off and re-acquiring NSMBU through the free MK8 game promo instead.

Ridiculous. Even now, that makes me want to buy those $15 adapters on eBay and trade them in.

He lied to you because i got the 50 percent bonus when i traded my white ps4 towards a destiny bundle,he should of just typed it in the computer and would have seen that it would apply to the destiny bundle.The person who did my trade in was a manager.

 

GD it, I got fed the same line of bullshit - "the $150 credit only works on a PS4 system you buy today".  Since I didn't want to take any chances on the phat PS3 BC 60gig I was trading in giving me problems (scored it off of craigslist for $40 as a "no video/picture" "broken" PS3), I just told the guy to cancel my previous White PS4 preorder and apply all the credit to a regular PS4 today so I can get the bonus.  The system was already starting to act up, probably didn't help that I've had it baking and bumping around my car's trunk for a while now...it froze up in the store but I played it off and they took it.

 

And he wouldn't let me scan the 30% coupon for some more copies of Target $.40 and $2.00 games, as I already used said coupon with him yesterday - he said it would "flag my account and wouldn't work anyway"  :roll: .  I asked him to just try to scan it for kicks but he wouldn't.  Oh well, no worries on that end, the pile of Ghosts and Black Flags will get traded in or sold elsewhere.

 

In any case, can I just return the PS4 to another store today and apply all of the credit to the white Destiny PS4 bundle, or do I have to wait until tomorrow and go back to the same store for the return?  

 

Thus far this week I've traded in 3 of each ACIV PS3, ACIV X360, CoD Ghosts PS3, CoD Ghosts X360...how many more can I trade in this week and still just bend the rules and not break them? 8-[

After a long hassle traded in my Xbox one towards the white ps4 with the 50% bonus basically he rang up a new ps4 to get the bonus then refunded it and put it towards the white ps4 now tune to decide if I want to keep it or cancel
