--EDIT--

I Had to go back and edit this entire post before I hit submit.

 

I was just at a local Gamestop while out on lunch and saw they had a 10% off all new game purchases sign on the door.

There were no details of the sale on any of the flyers, BUT I just found the information on the website

 

You get 10% off any full priced, $60 new game with the trade in of an XB1 or PS4 game only.

http://www.gamestop....de-save-repeat/

Requires the trade of an Xbox One or PS4 game. Offer valid on purchase of any NEW software priced at $59.99 or greater, including collector or limited editions.

 

Important Update

The extra fine print also states the maximum value of the 10% off is $6; so it's not actually 10% off, if the game you want is more than $60.00

10% off given in trade value increase trade value may be increased by a maximum of $6

 

--EDIT-- (8/27/15)

 

Thank you to sovereignNX-73811

He pointed out that there is another stipulation to the deal, you only get the $6 max discount first two opening days of Madden 16 and MGS V.

 

Offer valid during late night launch of Madden NFL 16 through 8/26/15. Offer valid during late night launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain through 9/2/15.

 

Which explains why, even though the deal is till Sept 23rd, the employees at my local Gamestop told me that the deal was over today.

I saw that today too.

It's nice, but GCU is still better.

So if you just happen to want to trade in a game AND you don't have GCU, then yeah this is a decent deal. Seriously though, everyone should just have GCU by now if you're buying new games on a consistent enough basis.

I feel it should be on any new game.
I was going to get use this deal to get a $20 game since I was planning to trade in something anyways.. but the stipulation kind of kills it.

It bugs me the flyer and posters don't give any details.

It just says 10% off new games....

 

Kind of like a similar flyer at a local supermarket which says $.99 Ice Cream, but it's only for hard serve not soft serve, and since since soft serve isn't speciically mentioned it is technically legal/correct. Though I've seen arguments break out the couple times I've picked up groceries while the sale was going on.

Problem is they just dropped prices. GTA V dropped from 38 to 33 (with pur), MKX from 33 to 27 (with pur), etc.

You mean like 2.5 new games a year (not including the pre-order bonuses) basically

I friggan love when Gamestops try to deny that they do this.

The closest Gamestop to me claims they do not allow such a policy in their store, only used games may be checked out.

I was close friends with the manager and key holders in my hometown, and know/knew many of the behind the scenes things and her rules for the checking out of new games.

 

Though the only thing that always, and always will bug me is the gutting of games.

Why not just make a dummy box, and be done with it? They already have them all over the store, there were 15+ boxes showing MGSV and UNTIL DAWN today, showing they were out/coming soon.. why not just make one for every game they have new or just display them BEHIND THE COUNTER new.. instead of gutting them.

It would save a step, and stop pissed customers.

I do miss the discount I got though, the manager back home knew I hated said gutted "store copy" and would usually give me a 10% customer satisfaction discount because of this.

 

While in this town/state, there were times I've bought new and the codes in the box were used (Final Fantasy Type 0 HD, the FF15 code was used.... and I had to fight to get a legit one)

Why do people still go to GameStop thinking they'll ever offer a good deal? All they do is financially gouge their customers. One of the most dishonesty retailers around.

Edit the title so it tells us the 10% is only good off of $60 games. This deal is worthless for a lot of people.

Please tell me you saw their survey, and how offended people were over it

Good point, as I said I had written up the info and tried to find proof on their site.. only to find the full details to be crap.

will the 10% off apply on collector's edition since the $60 game is included in the package?

The fine print says any game over $60.

Including limited and collectors editions.

Adding that

So many lies and stipulations, I kind wish we could sue them.

The main incentive in this deal is the 10% off new games though, not the TiV.
