It's cheaper to buy the Uncharted Collection + Uncharted 4 pre-owned then it is to pay $39.99 for 4 new and get the collection for free.

You get a free can cover!!!!! If you preorder BOTH madden and battlefront 2 :)

Made me smile a bit. Plus I wanted a star in new thread.

An employee told me the trade in deals are usually in the summer and the buying deals are usually during the holidays. So I'm guessing we are transitioning (inbetween). Please correct me if I'm off base.

Does the chance at a Cayde-6 figure mean they had more shipped or only if a store still has some from the first batch I wonder.

Yeah $30 in GS trade is way easier to swallow vs. $20 cash.  That $30 is worth way less than the cash I used to accumulate the credit.

They did that for about a week and realized they didn't like it.  I think it ended when they had Doom new for $20 and PO copies still for $50.

Many times that's a publisher restriction. Nothing GS can do about it.

So stealth bump should be Labor Day weekend & not next weekend, correct? Reason I'm asking is I'll be out of STL in southern IL on Labor Day weekend & it's much harder to flip down there.

Should be next weekend. Friday of Labor day weekend is a new month.

Why would you think it's Labor dah weekend that's the second time I've seen you ask that. It's always been the last weekend of the month. Last full weekend that is.

Because June's bump started on Friday, June 30. So as long as the last day of the month is not Friday, Saturday, or Sunday the bump should be the full weekend before?

The Recoil laser tag system looks pretty cool. There's a few decent reviews on amazon that it basically works except for someone having trouble pairing a second set and another set with some parts missing. The GS website doesn't even have it yet.

That's because June 30th was the last Friday of June just like August 25th is the last Friday of August.

Finally deciding to jump on a Wii U because I have been wanting to play some Mario and Zelda. I am going to hold off on the Switch to see if the support will be there in future. The deal for $30 dollars off for a Wii U console with the purchase of 2 games (not the blast from the past bundles though) seems to be a decent deal. I have been searching for a decent Wii U deal anyone know a good price a 32gb system has been going for? Any better options then this Gamestop deal?

I've seen a bunch on Craigslist.

Either way, make sure the tablet is in full working condition otherwise you're going to be up shit Creek...

Honestly I would check Craigslist. Where I live, there are a couple people selling for $200, and it included like 4-6 games (granted 2/3 games suck, but I could probably offload them for $40-80 at Gamestop). If you go that route, I would ask if they still have the box. This is a good indication of whether they take care of their stuff or not. That or look at the pictures in the ad, as if it looks like they didn't put any care or try and make it look presentable in the pictures, the owner is probably a slob and didn't take very good care of the console/games.
