That FAQ is money. Does anyone know if that b2g1 still does multiples (ie buy 6, get 2 free)

Nope, it's a buy 8 get 1 free now.

Elaborate?

Just do not engage...

So whose alt are you? I mean, you don't seem like Jay. I'd gueee zzxyz got tired of dudebythepool because that seems close to someone from Phoenix.

If you used your energy for the greater good, I think there would be no ceiling to your potential. :-P

There was a more up to date version but it got destroyed during the Great Flip Mageddon. Its still pretty on point though. The coupon only allows one set now.

The FAQ is still around. It is really useful for new people. It taught me just about everything.

Agreed. Kyle's FAQ was the Wikipedia of Gamestop trading.

Ten posts in a day is a bit much man for a new member. I'm not sorry that I think people should read around before posting a ton of questions that have been answered. I'm also on an airplane, my energy is well focused here 😘

I agree, i plan on doing a huge trade in later today, and plan to renew in-store. They do deserve a lot to be honest. 

 

how many cables are you trading in?

Ah, ok. I used my last one and I would have been pretty disappointed if I had just missed getting more games

I haven't gotten to read much about the new Powerup Rewards. Is that $60 tier not happening at all?

No it's $30 ($15 upgrade if you have PUR). you get 20% discount on pre-owned games and a 20% bonus on trade ins. They got rid of the $10 monthly certificate

That's a damn shame. It would have paid for itself in no time flat.

It'd be nice if we could get at least 10% off new releases. They apparently don't feel the need to compete with Best Buy and Amazon on that front.

It already pays for itself in no time. An extra 5 percent is way better than 120 in rewards coupons. If you off set the 30 bucks it's only 90. And extra 5% TIV only requires 1800 in trade ins to off set over the year. Most people here hit 2k monthly. Not to mention the 3x points. 30 bucks is the better deal for what's offered.

And someone might say well the 120 would double up in flipping. But that math is wonky and would only require another 1800 to off set again. That's without factoring in the 3x points you're earning creating more rewards certs. 30 points per dollar will probably generate that missing ten dollar rears cert monthly anyway.

That brought a tear to my eye.
Today.....
I tried to get the porg chase pop figure from GameStop, went to 5 locations before I realized that in my neighborhood at least , there's no way that they would put them out for sale if they did get one. My local GameStop guys are like a mafia of eBay resellers.
Thanks GameStop!
I am looking forward to the snes classics on launch day when they put up sheets saying they have 4 available from their case of 10 for the public.

You CAGs that demonstrate no restraint on your impulsive tactics will lead to many restrictions to the legit CAGs who enjoy buying and trading for a little reward to help fund this hobby. I have no idea what a few of you are thinking with the wild ideas you throw out on this forum. Sad


This exactly...unfortunately there are a tremendous amount of stupid people with zero impulse control. They won't be happy until everything is ruined scorched earth style

$109 after tax Trades in $153 ($51 a piece after the 70% bump) then you renew again brings total cost to $124..soo you are netting $28.00 (give ot take depending on taxes)


more like $44 with no tax and the $5 card.

That is what I was thinking as well.  Something small such as this might turn their fortunes around.

 

My state doesn't tax trade credit so that's another 7.5%.  Combined that's nearly comparable to GCU's 20% discount.  I'd consider moving business over there.  With the right Trade-In promos or flips I could overcome that extra 2.5%.  Then I'd consider pre-owned for games I don't ever consider keeping long-term. 

 

I get why they don't want to do so; they probably don't have high profit margins on new game sales, might even be at a loss.  And they don't want to do anything to make new game sales more enticing over their used market.  Problem is that the market has changed and they are stubborn to evolve to compete.  They look at improving their business from their perspective (e..g. bundling hot items with undesirable trinkets); not looking at how they can add value to the customer.  That's how co's like Amazon do so well, because of it's customer-leading initiatives. 

 

Then again a small discount in new game sales affects everything down the line.  Pre-owned prices will also have to drop accordingly, and that could also sharply affect trade-in values.  It's a cascade effect, but I think it's worth doing since their marketshare will erode even more as time goes on.  They are just putting a band-aid on the bleeding when it needs to be sewn up.

Text IN to 467-87 to sign up for text alerts from Gamestop and get a b2g1 coupon good for pre-owned games and accessories. I'll try to check today if it's good on multiples.

Edit: Expires on 10/8 and limit of 1 per account.
