Mannn, even I'm happy there is another thread for more sensitive information now, had an experience in store today with somebody trying to flip that made me even more grateful for that fact.

So is the Halo sword good for anything?

When information, that is largely public, is treated like a state secret this is why the flips get posted in dramatic fashion on Reddit.

 

 

 

Yes the parts to the whole of the information is public but takes a certain amount of work to compile all of them into one place for people to easily find out instead of spending half a promo figuring it out manually. The media attention from last month alone is the best example why it is good that I locked it down prior. I saw you edit that BTW.

Ahh, the 'Battle of the Blacks'.

 

True CAGs know that Blackbeard is a pillar of the community.

Is it possible to share? Want to make sure I know what to avoid doing?

Some dude went in with a bunch of values saved to the ap from last night, holding a bunch of customers up. Had a huge stack of games and was being a bit rude about the whole situation. Basically gets into a whole situation with the guy that held up myself and a few other people waiting to check out since there was only one employee. Long story short is the Employee got real suspicious with him at the end since he had a shit-ton of games saved on the app,  knew a lot about the trade-in system and the apps/policies, yet he still claimed he didn't have a Pro account yet and needed to sign up for a new one. 

It was just really awkward because he was making it obvious he had multiple accounts, being rude, pushing for like 10+ price matches from yesterday's values, all while using a digital coupon + 5$.

If having the information more secretive means that more people like that don't get involved, it's for the better.

My local GameStop employee was happy with my trades this weekend because he said I being in good quality games they usually don't carry. Look forward to the day I can access more information until then I will keep trucking and probably buy that halo sword for my daughter.

Talk to my GS.  They said it was their 1st time running this program and may be done on a quarterly business model.

 

Then again his personality is so laid back, I can only take his word with a grain of salt.

If you're a PUR member I hope you put that halo sword coupon to use.

Will do and maybe they did not raise the price and it's still 40 bucks

I had an account back in 2014, but it was with a work email that has been since deactivated (hindsight is always 20/20).  I have been through many flips, deals, and glitches and shown many CAGawans the way.  But if it makes you feel better about yourself, go ahead and sneer.

And funny how whenever you call out a new account, they always have some bullshit excuse like this :)

Even funnier when a deactivated email wouldn't keep you from logging into CAG. Unless he forgot his password that is.

I agree. I'm curious though, did he actually get the expired quotes honored?

Just a heads up, using the energy sword coupon would just make the energy sword $19.99 from original retain price of $59.99. Even if it begins from 39.97 on clearance, scanning the coupon would only knock it down to $19.99.

I guess it is what it is at this point. As someone who admittedly did not contribute for 6 or so years of being here, it's my own fault. At the time I didn't really see it as a malicious act though, especially when a lot of the time we could have used less people talking about god knows what. I just want to put it out there though that there are plenty of us that know what we are doing, don't blab to the outside world and are polite reasonable human beings (most of the time.) The June bump was a perfect storm, both fortunate and unfortunate at the same time. Good luck out there to everyone new and old in the future, especially those that actually like to play video games and use this to lessen the cost.

No! Don't do this! If we know how old an account is and how many posts they have, which is readily available information, it's a bannable offense for completely legit reasons!
