I know that more gift cards come with a bonus GC, but I wish they'd specify them in the ad.

Lol at the $40 gta v deal. It's been $30 twice in the past 2 months (it included a shark card as well).

a lot of those 4 for 10s arent very great deals

 

mgs4 was 90 cents before this promotion. now it's 5.

nintendogs dachshund version was 2 dollars before this promotion, now its 5.

steel diver 3DS was 2 dollars before this promotion, now it's 5.

timeshift was a dollar and change before this promotion. now it's 5.

 

 

Makes sense. now that its a "sale", people will be interested. But a lot of games got online price hikes to make up for it. So now instead of buying 1 game for a couple bucks youre looking for 4, before gamestop gets rid of that stuff entirely.

Pretty sure it's just the 5 listed plus Nike, but has anyone else tried different ones in the last 2 weeks?

If anyone is trying the mgsV Crédit mover. It's 9.99 at the Mike Schmidt store.

GS lime disease cariers buy Mike Schmidt credits to buy the circle in the green box and take that to Big Ben at midnight and Big Ben will strike 5:78 pm military time.

Dang that's a good deal. Sadly I already traded in 3 yesterday so I'm at the limit.

Good call.  We need a separate thread for posts like this.  Especially when they are worded this way.

I expect Best Buy to lower the value soon so this might not be the best idea depending on how fast they ship.  Good find though

If you lock the price in online you are good for 14 days

Agree - that's why I steered clear of them and only bought the $5 base games that I knew were really worth $5 before the sale. 

 

When they first announced 4 for $10 they jacked up even the $0.99 games. Not a good deal if you were buying those. If you were buying the $2.99 games it will save you a few cents.

Value already dropped from yesterday.

Edit: value has not changed. Forgot to include gcu for apples to apples comparison.

Can you still deliver in store if you lock online or do you have to ship?

Where are you seeing that? I just traded two hours ago and it was the same.

I thought it was 19 and change yesterday. Or is that w/ gcu?

Sitting on at least $600 of trade credit and GS gift cards combined. Any difference between trade credit and gift cards?

I've heard that gift cards can be converted to Amazon credit. Can anyone confirm if gift cards still work with eBay/Amazon cards? Last I've heard is that Amazon gift cards work on the form of a Visa now.

Btw using trade credit had never negated taxes for me.

Don't know why you and the paranoid passive aggressive football guy keep calling me that but whatever.
Anyone know why NBA 2k18 doesn't show up available to preorder for a physical copy on Amazon while GS and BB have them? I think that's also the case with Madden.

Just an FYI, with BB's online system, the game has to be delivered to them by day 14 or they will revise the estimate to the current level.  They are strict.  Make sure you mail the games with enough time to spare.

You have to ship.  BB in-store and online trading systems are completely separate.
