So if you ask your GameStop to pull up the sku 131774, you'll get the Darkseid Preorder Bonus for Injustice2 PS4, 148711 for Xbox1. Free of charge


Its highly YMMV if they will do that.

Likely not this far after release. Those codes are meant for customer issues. Ie ordered for the wrong system, picking up a reserve at a different store, etc.

Not really meant to just be given out. They do track those codes and they can term you for giving them out.

If it didn't mean possibly losing my job then sure.

Good to know. Don't really see how it deserves a termination. But I guess abuse of anything can lead to termination.

So today is the last day to pick up the Ad....shit need to get my lazy ass up and go to the nearest GS and pick one up.

 

My store didn't even have the ad or any clue what I was talking about. Going to try a different store before I head home.

Damn, my 7 Plus arrived today and in brand new shape and Swappa etc checks show all is good, but then I did an ATT IMEI check and it shows installment payments haven't been made.  

 

Receipt shows $525 + tax for that one and no mention of B2G1.  Maybe my GS will give me that back.   :)    Guess I gotta go visit them.  Or call ATT.

 

 

Other two are Verizon models and also check out on Swappa etc, but wonder if they have the same problem.  No VZ check.  AT least those look a like they were used a tad and not obviously brand new.  

 

Was planning on at least trading these into BB.  Maybe keep one.  Maybe resell, but not going to resell if I can't vouch for these things.

For anyone making online purchases in trade credit, you can get the tax refunded if you live in a state with credit exemption/trade-in credit laws. These should generally be in-line with your state's motor vehicle trade-in laws.

 

If your state only taxes on the difference of your trade-in vehicle and new vehicle purchase, gamestop should follow the same rules. So if you buy a $10,000 new car and trade in an old car for $5,000, you can only be taxed on $5,000 NOT $10,000. If you traded in $10,000 and bought $10,000, then you can't be taxed at all.

 

In a trade-credit/tax exemption state, In-store purchases follow suit. If you trade in $75 worth of games and buy $100 in new games, you can only be taxed on $25. If you trade in $100 worth of games and purchase $100 worth of games, you do not have to pay the tax.

 

Online purchases do not follow these laws because their system sees your trade credit as a gift card and not trade credit. However, if you live in a state with tax exemption laws for trade-ins, you can call gamestop customer service and explain to them that your state has tax exemption/trade credit laws and request that your tax be refunded.

 

I suggest specifically referencing the example of trading-in and purchasing a car when you call. As long as you are nice and patient, they should send you a gift card for the amount you were taxed. While a gift card isn't the same as getting trade credit back since it will be taxable when you use it, it's still way better than nothing.

 

The only states/districts that DO NOT have tax exemption/trade-credit laws surrounding motor vehicles are California, Hawaii, Maryland, Kentucky, Michigan, Virginia, and Washington D.C. If you live in any other state, you should be able to call and get your tax back unless there are other applicable laws for your state that I have missed.

 

Hope this helps anyone that is planning on getting a Switch bundle or making other large purchases online with trade credit.

Woah, how'd you check this? Just go to eshop and see if it's a free DL?

 

 

eshop>menu>settings/other>redownloadable software

 

 

anyone who bought a used 3ds system i highly recommend doing this

Thanks for this. I just picked up a used new 3ds XL and it had super mario 3D land on it. Is it any good and can I attach it to my eshop acct or is it tied to the system?

Wait so does that mean GameStop prorates online B2G1 orders? Can you return only a part of your order for a percentage back?

This has been happening to me since yesterday, can't checkout no matter what broswer, credit card or item I'm buying. Though I don't think this is happening to everybody since nobody besides you has mentioned it yet.

wondering the same lol. obviously there's more to just simply: "The age of your cag/reddit account and your posts. Is your account at least one year old and do you make quality helpful posts? If so, welcome! If not, you won't be approved."

 

Anyone know what the real requirements are now? My account is not good enough even though it's over 11 years old & I have over 39% likes on my posts :cries: I'm not offering my first born lol.

Anyways, so I saw ppl said when u do returns at a store, that the store that takes the return gets the hit instead of the store that u originally brought it from.... what about returning online orders to the local store? Will my home store get the hit too? =(

Question my GS has a used copy of a FFXV deluxe edition with the steelbook. Do you guys think I can buy it as a regular used copy of FFXV or would it have it's own preowned price? They don't have a used copy listing on their site so I was just wondering.

It's priced the same as FF15, $32.99.

Grab it before it's gone.

It will already be at the preowned price for FF15; like you said, deluxe edition is the same sku for preowned.

You can only do this if you pay your purchase in full with trade credit. It requires you call GameStop for a refund. Knowing how bad GS phone reps are, you might be on hold for hours. It is not worth the trouble if you value your time.

yes, I did it for my switch bundle purchase.

All but $0.60 of my purchase was paid for in trade credit. l explained to the associate that I shouldn't have been charged the $0.60 in the first place because the tax is what made me short, but I don't think she followed that far.

 

When I called, I got an associate fairly fast and the call took a total of about 15 minutes and I played Switch throughout most of it, so it didn't have an effect on what I was doing anyway.

What did u try and pre order? Also linking your trade credit with your account is a bad idea Because if u r truly banned your credit might be gone as well

I went in and talked to management and that employee. My account was flagged because she thought I was abusing the $5 off coupon last month. The manager looked through my account and saw I only used two coupons, one from Bit Heroes and one a different GS employee gave me during a trade so he lifted the flag.

 

The reason she thought I was abusing the system was because a few friends and I all used our coupons together but separate transactions with all different accounts.  

 

lol the manager asked her: "So just because someone comes in, uses a coupon, his friends are with him and they use the same promo coupon under their own accounts, you flag him? Why?"

 

I did have more coupons but I was broke so I couldn't use them and gave them away here but if I were to use them I wasn't going to do so under my account.

 

PS. I was trying to preorder Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite.
