Generally, I'd agree.  But if you take advantage of the GCs you can buy (fast food, dept stores, nike, kohls, starbucks, etc), there is some value in keeping GS credit handy, not just what products GS sells.  You can't buy these GCs with Amazon credit.

exactly, gs store credit is far more valuable imo.

Yes you can - you can use Amazon credit on third party gift cards (except Visa/Mastercard gift cards). Just picked up a Best Buy gift card yesterday.

These opinions are starting to become more common. Are we being trolled or is GS infiltrating? I'm probably going to stop talking about GS here.

Always keep some GS credit around, but there's always a way to rework AZ credit into GCs

You’re correct as well. They didn't allow it before, but now they do. Amazon $1 promo credit used to work on them as well, but they stopped it from working there. Regular promo credit works on GCs as well (like the Twitch promo).

Amazon credit is much more versatile. If you plan on buying more video games, Gamestop is the way to go. If you want to trade in some games to pick up some adult items, go with amazon. Gamestop usually gives better values but you also have to spend that credit at Gamestop unless you get the weeks where cash is same as trade values.  

I have used both companies for trade ins at different times and generally prefer the instant gratification of Gamestop but would probably use amazon more often if values were higher. 

 

AZ credit is so much more valuable than GS tho

You guys are responding to a shill. Look at the username.

1. No
2. Yes
3.  Most of the time for standard edition games, yes.

Are you guys still getting trade sheets with the UPC on them? About a month ago the trade in print outs I have been getting no longer have the UPC or the game name on them. They just show my address and the amount I should get.

The last trade I did a few weeks ago were the same way. I printed out a second page from the main trade in order page with the game names and values listed just to be safe and the games were accepted.

sounds like a real hassle imo. i'd rather just take my games to my local gs store and be done with it. plus their credit is far more useful.


Nah bro. It's not. Comenity Bank + GameStop vs Chase + Amazon. Are you from a different planet?

No UPCs or name lists on mine for weeks now

Anyone every reach a limit on amazon gift card / credit? I used to use a separate amazon account to add items to to semi-track trade values and now they emptied that account's cart and doesn't let me add anything to it....

Looks like the no UPC on the trade in sheets is a good thing. They accepted my Rage 2, even though it says Amazon exclusive.
Anybody else unable to print the shipping labels? Haven't been able to print them in a few days.

Yes.  I ended up getting it to work by pasting the order # and tracking #'s in the URL to be able to print them but I don't remember exactly what link I was using to do this.    Also of note, the work around to print labels past the shipping deadline appears to be dead.

Use the links from the emails and it should print fine

You can still print past the deadline if you make a new trade, and from that initial confirmation page replace the trade in number in your url with your expired one.

Yep. When you click on the Print Shipping Label, does it try to get you to save a file? That's what's happening with me.

Same here. And I can't use the old method of pasting the trade number into the link of a new trade because now it puts the tracking number in the link as well. Looks like we have to print the labels as soon as we get them now.

I personally won't do retro items from GS.  From what i've read, these's much higher risk getting an item in poor condition and thus wasting time.

 

The last b2g1 online for current gen games was a great time to build amz credit though.

All right then but I got SNES carts in the past that look like crap but AZ still accepts them.
