I tried to trade in my blackfriday 3ds, it comes up $75 after preordering the 2ds. i even showed the cashier the ad but he he also showed me the list that they have printed out. its actually just flat $75.

Well guess that's a bust. Thanks for verifying.

Guess I'm better off sending my Pokemon sun moon new 3ds xl to amazon for 165 in amazon credit. Using the amazon credit to buy GS gc. Using the GS gc to buy new 2ds xl and doing the B2G1

Almost got my hopes for this promo, but expected as much!

If anyone determines what giftcards are eligible report back please.

Would buy some Nike giftcards.

Is persona 5 the steel book edition?


Little chance any of those are left at GS. They primarily only got enough for preorders.

Nike, Dominos, Hulu, Netflix, Crunchyroll, & Sling TV are all eligible for the $5 free GS GC w/purchase. Those all require a $20-$30 minimum.

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.


The b2g1 specifies used games. Don't think pikmin will count on that front.

Cool. Most likely going to convert my Splatoon 2 from physical to digital. Going to trade it in after fridays bump, hopefully it gets up to $35 base. Then use gamestops 'buy $50 eshop get $10 eshop' deal to complete the conversion

This weekend has potential to be quite nice, especially if you, ahem, took advantage of prime day.

If anyone wants to quickly find what stores are prestige, Google "gamestop prestige" followed by the state you want to check.

I just got off the phone with my local prestige store. He verified that the $75 new 3ds toward new 2ds promo was worded very poorly.

New 3ds xl trades at $75 no matter what.
New 3ds trade at $60, and get a boost to $75 if applied toward new 2ds.

Prestige day *should* have some overwatch and destiny promos. There will be some give aways. There will probably be entirely too much letdown.

I can update on the details of prestige day when I can get them, the employees at this store get very excited about this stuff and like to fill their customers in as soon as they can.

Good, I just cancelled Netflix and was hoping for a deal like this to get it back. Which GCs can you still use store credit on? It works on my WWE Network the other day, but don't think it works on Dominos(Which would be the other one I would buy)

Had no clue amazon gave so much for it, I may end up trading it there. Do you know if you have to include the charger?

I think charger and stylus. But you can double check Amazon.com. the galaxy version pulls 101 in amazon credit - last I checked.

These values are for amazon's highest level of used condition (I think it's called "good"). Lower quality conditions may yield less.

I traded my buddy who runs a tiny game shop a turbo graphx 16 for a binder filled with loose game discs... So come friday I'm walking into GameStop with a spindle of 85 ps3, ps4, 360, and xbone games with no cases! Wish me luck guys.

Man, I can't stand the random price drops.  MXGP dropped (both new and used) $10 and now it's back up (new and used) to $49.99 new/$44.99 used.  I guess it was a part of last week's promotions...but it wasn't mentioned in the ad.  I know they can't put every price drop in every ad, but c'mon man, if a AA title that has been out less than 2 months drops for just one week you should put it in the add.

There was a small bump in trade in values... Like 1 to 2 bucks on some games
And others received no increase

App is showing default TIV for new 3ds xl as $75 cash same as credit.

So where is the boost/bump towards trading in for a new 2ds xl?

See my previous post. Only the non XL new 3ds gets any boost.

Since there is no FAQ to check, I believe I recall that the $5 Trade-in coupon that used to be pictured in the OP is one of if not the only thing that stacks with promos such as the 50% coupon? I'm sure I recall something being an exception to the no stacking rule.

Have you tried trade credit on a Dominos gift card?  I would think it works as Ive used trade credit on Wendys, Darden, Taco Bell and other food places, but maybe not.
