I'm starting to get a little lightheaded from all this new thread smell.

The B2G1 3ds or ds games with purchase of a 2ds, Pikmin,or miitopia could be pretty good. Especially if anyone is planning on getting those games anyway.

It could be even better if they'll let this stack with trade a new 3ds XL for a new 2ds, since I don't care about 3d.

They revised the wording on that promo. Looks like you only get 75 and not an extra 75.

That eshop deal is fantastastic for those looking to transfer a surplus of GameStop credit to the eshop.

The fine print still says "extra". It's worth finding out when I'm in the store anyway. I will report back.

PDJ.  Remember that guys like me and a few others sell digital credits at a pretty good discount in the trading thread.  Several of us would probably give you 60 for 50.   Just remember to check everyone's feedback.

Oh boy save $10 on Persona 5!.....even though with GCU or prime it was $48 since launch....How does gamestop get away with charging $59.99 for new games again? You'd think a store that specializes in the selling specifically games would have a discount on par or at least comparable to it's competitors.

The fact that they specialize in that is the reason why they can't offer 20% off. Best Buy and Amazon offer it because it gets you in the store and possibly buy something else non video game related like a TV or an appliance.

Well when more people shop at your store because it says "Game" in the store name you don't have to.

Also they make their money on used not new. If anything, they discourage selling new. Hell, let BB take the 20% hit and have consumers sell their copies to GS so they can profit. It's easy to see why they do that, like it or not.

I only shop at GameStop when absolutely necessary. As a CAG, Best Buy is where the best deals are 90% of the time.

Can one of the games be pikmin or is it in addition to it? Like do I have to buy 3 games to get 1 or just 2? 

 

I might see whats good with that deal, but I understood it like "buy pikmin and 2 other games and get 1 free" when I read it.

For new, yes.  For PO'd, definitely not.

So it looks like they are doing a $5 bonus on certain $25 gift cards as well.  Does anyone have a full list?

 

Also say I do 2 $25 gift cards in one transaction?  Would I get 2 bonus $5 cards?  Or would I have to buy them one at a time?

 

Looking to convert some credit to Nike to get my kids some sneakers/clothes for school.  Thanks!

I changed my zoom on Chrome but here is full legal terms typed out:

 

Offer valid 7.27.17 - 8.6.17 for pre-owned Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS games only. Free game(s) must be of equal or lesser value. Purchase of a NEW Nintendo 2DS XL, Miitopia, or Hey! Pikmin required to qualify.

Also, for me in NJ at least, if you buy with credit you pay $49.99 exactly this week.  With GCU, I end up paying $54 ish at Best Buy.  So, in some scenarios when you buy with credit it is actually cheaper (but they are few and far between).

Interesting...I have miitopia pre-ordered on amazon but this might be worth paying a little bit extra for.  :bow:
