Hey Blackbeard, "Paragon Essentials Edition" is listed on some sheets with a GS TIV but GS doesn't have a TIV online or in stores. Just fyi.

Thank You! It was a mistake in my BB to GS database file, it should be removed the next time I run it tomorrow.

Sorry if this is a dumb question: I thought I had read every page of this thread, but I noticed a few quick posts about a $50 console trade bonus, but nothing before or since. Can someone elaborate about whether and when this is happening? I know about the $25 bonus until the 9th but I'm not sure if I missed something else.

Watch what you post here, since Jay Madden was banned yesterday he has been copying and pasting everything on slickdeals. He's like that kid in school who never studied for a test and was always looking over at the other kids for answers.

That's stupid - tell them they're adult owned and well taken care of.

 

Most employees assume games just normally come with gunk and junk all over the discs. 

I always get comments about how good my games look when they come from my personal collection. I hate it because there's no reason a game (or case for that matter) should look like someone just elbow dropped it from the top rope.

I think they assume that the cases will be dirty when you have like Target who used to run promos with buy a game and get a bag of Doritos free with purchase.

Yep! The same thing happens to me. It's actually gotten to the point where a couple of the employee's who know me won't even check the condition of my games because I never bring them anything damaged, even consoles. The only crud condition games I trade in are ones I've purchased from Gamestop :P

I've dealt with way too many junior detectives while doing this. Seems like they're abundant in my area.

 

Would it be worth it to make a separate account for trading purposes to avoid the headaches?

Part of me wants to make a second account (main account isnt banned, but is on thr edge of limit) and go for one last run today. I have a feeling all of this attention is finally going to be the kick in the ass GS needs to "correct" the problem and prevent these perfect storms from happening.

I don't know sp00ge - You and I have been around a LONG time.  We've seen lots of crazy things like the BBV B2G1's to Gamestop (and then back to BBV) as well as the Hollywood Video 4.99 sales.  Remember the old promos with bringing in 2 of the BBV B2G1 games and then getting a game for free at Gamestop with one of those "Bring in 2 qualifying  games" promos.  There has always been talk of them putting a stop to it but in the end, while they've certainly adapted some over the years, these opportunities still arise.  I think their survival is somewhat tied to these promos.  

 

 

EDIT:  I actually made a second account recently.

 

Edited a 2nd time for typing "they're" instead of "their" in my haste.

Well I'm a moron. I went over 2k and didn't even realize it because I was basing it off of my total credit at the end of the night, not factoring in the credit I using to buy games with. I am truly as stupid as a noon lurker.

I guess I should go all out today? I can only assume the ban is coming to me quickly

Just checked and the rest of my points showed up. I guess that means I'm not banned?

Hey guys, now's the time to get banned. For some questions being asked, look on page one. Some people are surprised that they are banned, please what were you thinking. If you knew what the trade limit was, think before you act. Some people have been banned already and they love it. Not me.

You can but there should be a preowned and new option for the coupons. The preowned should be cheaper than the regular one.

No, just the Rock Bottom.

 

On a more serious note, I went in yesterday looking to pick up RE7 but it rang up as 54.99 despite it being 32.99 on the website, anyone know if the price has changed in-store today?

Quick question: When using pre-owned rewards certificates the restrictions state that you can only stack different denominations. The example uses 2 certificates. Does anyone know if you can use more than 2?

I'm looking at stacking 25, 15, and 10 to knock 50 off pre-owned system.

Thanks.

The most I've ever used was 3, but that was a while go so I'm not sure if anything has changed.

You can use more than two. I've used at least four before.

Why are so many people so worried about points? You don't lose your points due to a trade ban. You just can't trade in. Nothing else changes.

How do you make a new account? Im in state where you need ID to sell games in. With a new account, wouldn't you use your same ID and possibly give you shit?

i may be wrong, but I believe you can't cash in your points either when your account is banned.  I recall a guy at a local GS that wanted to get some certs with his points, but wanted to know if he was still banned.  The employee tried and said he was still banned and he was unable to convert the points to certs.

Certificates only apply on one item, so unless your getting a 25$ Amiibo you shouldn't get the 25 cert.
