Wow! What a weekend.

If any of the Tampa area CAGs wanna hang I'm living large on gift cards at Bahama Breeze on the causeway with my girlfriend. If not I hope you all have a happy 4th and mYbe sometime in the future.

Wonder if corporate actually put something out or if the JD's are just catching on finally.

GS gonna have fun with the ban hammer this month

the worst part is i still have a final set of 6 games to trade that i bought yesterday. Since i am $190 over $2000 total should i just trade the last 6? Or return them tonight? Just trying to avoid getting flagged/banned. I accept my 90 day sentence for my screwup

GCU members, I found that Binding of Isaac has a really nice return rate.  It's $26 after tax, Pro trade in with 70% bonus is $46, $20 return!

 

Anyone find some similar to that?  In terms of being low cost, and high gain.

Can someone please explain how these "nintendo boomerangs" work please I don't get what anyone is saying.

In this context, "boomeranging" means to buy from one GameStop and trade it in to another GameStop.

GameStop can go ahead and ban me, I don't care. I got a PS4 Pro and PSVR Until Dawn bundle for $167 out of pocket, and I still have $158 left in credit to play with.

Yes the gamestop manager explained the only reason you can't use trade in credit to get Amazon is because trade credit buys things tax free. The Amazon gift cards have to have tax paid. So by using a gift card you pay the tax and it works fine.

No, it's not the Thinkgeek ones. They have their own bundles that come with Zelda and a pro controller.

Gift cards are untaxed. You pay tax when you use them.537a74d585a5846060d1d76017de4f98.jpg

Going to ask a few questions I don't remember being in the faq, and I have no experience ordering from gamestop online. Any time I try to, I get disappointed that tax is applied even when using credit. Does anyone know a way around this? If not, does anyone know if it's possible to do the b2g1 by going in store, purchasing 2 in store items and one through the store online?

 

My original plan of an ipad pro and 2 gen 2 apple watches was crushed as they sold out of all Apple 2 watches online. Was going to switch to an ipad pro and 2 Verizon Iphone 7s, but they only have one 128gb option available, and you can't buy 2 of the same kind online. Now looking at Ipad pro, vita and Nintendo 3ds, but if I can't combo it all in store, I think I am just going to buy my ipad pro and then use game certs to bring down the price...

 

Also, the Power Up Elite Beta was really nice during this weekend flipping. 15% extra trade in and 15% off brought made my totals even better. No real trouble trading, although a few places gave me some sketchy looks. A few tried to talk to me about games I never played, and I had to BS my way through those conversations. I told my friends at the end of my run Saturday I had about $1300 credit total, so I bought a Red Lobster gift card and ate like a middle class king...

the TiC "tax-free" is a state-by-state thing.  Doesn't work that way in PA but does in NJ.

 

For Amazan credit, I've never had to pay a tax.  Anywhere.

I just got out of gamestop. I visited only two gamestops. If you buy a gamestop gift card with your trade in credit from the first one, you can buy Amazon gift cards with the gamestop gift cards at the 2nd. 
 

 

can anyone else confirm this is working?

I'm in Kansas so maybe your state is different. Obviously most gift cards are tax at use. Amazon cards are different here. The manager herself explained it that way. have you even tried what I'm saying? All the other gift cards you can get with trade credit. Gamestop gift cards let you purchase Amazon gift cards.
