Any reason why the stealth bump archive is locked now? I was able to access it until now. I thought you only needed permission to access the flip and boomerang spreadsheet. 

Sorry they are locked until the attention dies down.

don't have the FAQs to look at, but wanted to double check, banned only means no more trading, right? can still buy with trade credit, redeem points, and do pre-orders?

 

You just answered your own question

I'm going to see family out of state tomorrow. I've mapped it out and put holds at a bunch of different stores. It's usually a 3 hour drive and I'll be pushing 5 hours. With the wife and kids tagging along.

Twice the driver's licenses for trade in fun!

someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I believe that is the case yes, you just can’t trade anything in for a few months

Can we have a "Trade Discussion" thread for talking up deals (questions) and our reactions to them, and have a *HEAVILY MODERATED* thread of just straight info?

This gets suggested with all the big threads, from Steam to PSN. What ends up happening is that everyone ends up posting in one thread, typically the discussion thread, and no one updates the info thread. Then people complain that the discussion is getting all the juicy news, and then the official thread gets closed, and the discussion thread becomes the main thread. And then months later, someone asks if they can be split...

An idea to keep the discussion more low key is if I just made a new topic every week with the new weekly ad and we had our discussions there. We'll see how this thread goes for now though. What would people think of that?


Good idea.

Hey is it possible if someone could PM me the $5 coupon for trades? To be honest I did not save it ._.

Edit: got one from a fellow CAG, Thanks Churches Chicken (not a sponsor)

You're correct and I had not noticed the change. I can't speak for Blackbeard directly, but it's likely due to all of the attention that this forum got this evening after being posted on the official CAG Twitter.


Damn, I missed about an hour of the last thread, sh*t must have went down after the tweet, by the farmer girl lady.

Not that I'm asking about it here :)

I honestly had a late shift and have just looked at the thread now, sad that I missed out on the list, but it was fun searching for deals a bit old school and getting excited when the game I held in my hand is worth more than I paid thanks to this site. A bit more work, but worth it in the end. Hope to do this in the morning while the family sleeps.

If I'm trying to hold a game for pickup and keep getting an error what should I assume?

A. The website is broken
B. The game is not available and the site hasn't updated to reflect that

It's possible that the game is no longer available.  Have you tried a different location or game to see what happened?  Several people couldn't get Arms to hold but that one was getting reserved pretty quickly.  I would recommend calling your store in the morning!

Picked up 9 3DS games from 1 store as part of the B2G1. The associate waited until after I paid for them and gave me a warning...

"Just in case you're thinking about trading these games back in for a free $100, they're being...watched."

 

Was he full of shit or legit looking out for me? This would be my first flip where straight up flip (i.e. all games bought solely for the purpose of trading back in) so I doubt there's anything else on my account that would lead to me being flagged/banned. Would love some opinions from you guys.

Sounds like a shitlord JRD powertripping. If they're being watched and you end up banned would it be much of a loss? That would mean the gravy train has ended.

Are people honestly that clueless to not know how to check the gamestop trade in site themselves? You can search by system (3ds, ps4 etc) and organize by trade value, that shows all the high value games for each system.

Thanks to BB, Kyle, and everyone who helps out.   I started the day with $76 credit, 3 minor games to trade in, and $30 cash.

 

I run a videogame club at the school where I teach. We now have a PS4 Slim, Xbox One S, and Wii U (Zelda branded) for the next school year!

 

I also got Arms / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / XB1 Controller with jack.  After a final trade tomorrow morning I'll have $300 credit.

 

It took me 7 hours to reach close to my trade in limit.....I never have before and that is with much more time used.

 

As far as all the drama, it is really like a social experiment.  Good and bad!   If you don't have sheet access, the Gamestop website makes it easy and if you have experience it isn't tough to get trades.  It wasn't super long ago that you couldn't even use the GS website to see trade in values!  You can do it!

What are they going to Do? Ban you for What? This is gamestops promo and I'm not reading and policies saying you can't trade in games.

This sounds like some straight up 1984. I wouldn't worry for now, however I wouldn't go back to that store for a week or two (maybe 3) until you have enough transaction history where he/she has to dig for your flip.

Honestly I'm wondering if maybe this was intended. Like, way higher than JD's they decided to take a loss to boost trade-in/used sales/powerup subscriptions to make an impressive statement to their shareholders. these are the cornerstones of gamestop, with pre-orders being in 4th place.

Nice, appreciate the reassurance everyone. Gonna turn around and flip these tomorrow to a different store (after removing all stickers just to be safe). Happy flipping!

If i were you, i'd try to remember in the future to flip them to a different store the very same day. Because i think it takes 24 hours for your purchase/trade history to be visible by other stores. If you care about being noticed, that is.

 

Speaking of, I'm gonna keep this up tomorrow and clear out some stores farther away and i hope no one decides to look at my account and realize i traded in those exact same games yesterday.
