Treat accessories the same as games (max of 4 every 30 days), just to be safe.

When does the 30 days start (Ex. July 1-31) or does it start the first day I trade that game (Ex. July 15- Aug 15)?

What was the number immediately after the dash?

EX: EBC3049409-x123456

Anyone that had a "7" where the "x" is had codes that didn't work before... will be interesting to determine if they fixed this problem or if you had a normal working code that was just typed in wrong.

Yep, mine was EBC3049409-7PGHQV4M and didn't work at all at the other two stores I went to, but it worked fine at the last store without needing to do anything extra. Either that or the wonderful cashier just adjusted it all manually without bringing it up. Either way, I'm happy and out of this whole thing now.

Now if I could just find some $25 Kindle gift cards.

Look at the receipt.  If it says "promotion not found" under each item, it was done manually.

What time do they usually update trade values?

All right peeps, if some of you want to be ready for tomorrow I'm giving away 15 coupon codes that DO NOT have 7 after the dash. Just PM me the name of the Newegg rep and I'll send you one. Get it wrong and...something will happen...

 

THEY ARE GONE!

Everyone, can you check your receipts? If you have used the code already, can you post just the number/letter AFTER the dash?

You probably already have confirmation, but yes.

 

1x -7####### didn't work,

3x -8####### did

 

Rest of my codes don't have 7s, so I guess I only have one invalid.

To all those people with their X-Files like theories about getting banned for trading in a 1000$ worth of items in a 30 day period I can tell you from experience it's not true .

People say if it's the same by 3-4am EST, it'll stay that for the rest of the day.

I hope not, cause I just realized I traded in that today. But I'm going to just expect to be banned, and be pleasantly surprised if I'm not.

Has anyone been ban before though, if so is it a temp or permanent ban?

Is anyone having problems keeping track of game limits on what they traded into gamestop and bestbuy gcu limit?!? My goodness! the threat of being banned is stressing me out. I have gcu for 12 years and I do not want to get banned. Oh and Yes, I am aware gamestop has a computerized record but still!!

I think only the 4th time is permanent.  Something like 1st time is 30 days, 2nd 90 days, and 3rd 180 days maybe.  One of my accounts I got the 30 day ban last May for trading a fifth copy.  That was when we all thought it was the sixth copy that triggered the ban. 

 

I really wouldn't be surprised if after this week they lower the undisclosed copy limit to 3 or possibly only 2 per 30 days.  I hope they don't but honestly I would if I were them.

Guys what's the limit of how many copies of a specific game you can trade in? 

 

I feel like going back tomorrow and guaranteeing my perma-ban. It'll be a great story to tell on my first date with a female.

4 will get you flagged, 5 will get you banned. Too many 4's will also get you banned.

On a side note, I'm at $1,658.74 in the past 30 days and haven't been banned...yet. Will report back with another hopefully successful trade!

And as far as buying lego Jurassic from best buy, the limit is 3 per console correct? So if I buy 3 of each I'm ok but over 3 and I'm in trouble?
