Everything but drive club vr dropped in value by nearly half. Will make it difficult to just break even on most of them even with the coupon. Nothing seems to be going my way for anything on this whole process... I'm really just annoyed at this point.
Thank you guys for trying to help though

Can you just return them to Best Buy or not pick them up? If you don't pick them up the order automatically cancels after a week or so.

That deserves a time out Cheapy. For shug that is. What a rude and senseless post. You just banned trade sheets and he advertises creating a new one lol.

I'm calling out a "helpful" and "valued" member out because its bullshit the way he struts his "elite status" around like he owns the place just because he has access to trade sheets. If you're not here to help out old and new members then GTFO!

Are you retarded? If you read Cheapy's post then you will know that he banned PRIVATE trade sheets that are ADVERTISED on a public forum. I am ADVERTISING a PUBLIC trade sheet that will be PUBLICLY available to all members or nonmembers of CAG because knowledge should be fucking shared you prick

Not that you can read this now but that was a subtle poke at your "spideeman" videos. Anyway thanks Cheapy, I don't appreciate being called a prick when I'm actually just hoping things deescalated. I encourage everyone to be more thoughtful, and if you want access to things just know they exist. It's like Channukkah, it's always in your heart.

Did some of the wording on one or more of the trade-in promos change recently?  I see these two:

 

PowerUp Reward Pro Members Get $50 Extra Credit when you trade any PS4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch

Spoiler

 

PowerUp Rewards Pro Members Get $50 Extra Credit when you trade your XB1, PS4, or Nintendo Switch System

Spoiler

 

I'm guessing one of these was previously the "Get an extra $50 for your PS4 system when trading towards a new PS4 system" but they changed the wording on it so that people wouldn't try to have GS override to stack both promos.  Like I was going to. :)

Ok so perfectly good for new members joining cheapassgamer  that only interested in this one thread that don't bother reading through the thread, begging for handouts crying unfair and then get sad and report when people aren't welcoming then with open arms? That's cool they can report members on here that are active part of cheapassgamer as a community. Kinda odd when it's their blatant negligence that causes the issues 90% of the time. All i see is lots of help for the most part if you read through the thread. Reminds of ebay i as a seller have hundreds of good selling reviews then you get the person with zero rating that buys an item claiming its broken and sends back item thats different then what i sold em and ebay sides with them no matter what lol

any reason you’re going after the white one other than it being rare? Having owned both a white and Black OG PS4, the white looks far inferior IMO.

But hey you do you. Some like white electronics.

White looks better IMO, the type of plastic material they use makes the black look bleh. It'll look good alongside my white X1S. Plus I sold the game for $85. 

 

Ebay had a $90 for $100 GameStop gift card the other day. Got 5 of those.

 

$450 - $50 - $85 = $315 for a limited PS4 Pro, not bad.

This is really basic but covers the most asked questions. The old FAQ had a lot of good information but some of it had almost to much information.

 

 

FAQ

 

How do I find trade values?

Go onto the Gamestop website and search their trade index.

 

Why does the Trade value say NA or it’s not in their search system?

That game is not worth anything. Some stores may take it because it is still worth a small amount (.25 cents) but usually they do not.

 

These trade-in values suck!

Find some better games or use a trade in deal to your advantage. Deals can be had on $4.00 trade in games with a percent boost.

 

I want to post my awesome trade find!

Don’t post values from Gamestop’s website. I think this used to be the norm but was abused by guests. Please use spoiler tags for sensitive information.

 

What is a trade bump?

Gamestop will usually do a trade bump on certain games you just have to watch for it. This almost always gets mentioned in the forum so just wait for it.

 

If I save my values on the Gamestop app will they honor them the next day?

No they won’t because their POS system rings in whatever the new value currently. Don’t try arguing with the employees because sometimes they know less than you.

 

Can I trade-in sealed games?

No they only take open games. Please don’t buy new games and then open the game right in front of any employee. It’s lazy and it looks really bad.

 

Do trade-ins have to have their original case, insert and manual?

They don’t have to have the original material but the original case make life way easier and faster. They just have to scan the barcode unless it is a Walmart game. They have their own barcodes

 

Do Buy 2 get 1 free coupons work on multiple sets?

They used to but they changed the code. The new code is PUR PRO and only works on one set.

 

Will they accept my game if it is really beat up?

You will be hit with a refurb fee or they won’t take it at all. Refurb fees are depend on the value of the item. Trading in games in excellent condition creates a nice rapport with employees and sometimes they won’t even look at your games anymore.

 

Can I trade in multiple copies of the same game?

Yes you can but only 4 per rolling thirty days. If it is a multi-system game you can trade in 4 for each console.

 

Can I trade in two of the same game at the same time?

I wouldn’t because it makes you look suspicious and you could get banned for it. Based on the store you could possibly do it. If you are trading in like 50 games it might also get overlooked.

 

What is the trade limit?

You can trade in about $2000 worth of credit and $500 dollars cash in a rolling thirty days. These aren’t Hard limits so you might not get banned if you go a little over these amounts.

 

What happens if I get banned?

you wont be able to trade for 3 months. Based on multiple bans and the offense you could get banned forever.

 

Can I use my points if I am banned?

From what I understand you can still use your rewards points.

 

If they have a good promo should I get trade in a lot and get banned?

I would play the long game so you can trade very month.

 

What do I do with all this credit?

Buy games and have fun.   

 

What all do I have to trade in for a console trade-in?

Most the time you need a controller, Hdmi input, and the power cord. This goes for most systems.

 

Should I erase/reset everything on the system?

This can be a catch 22 because it takes forever for them to test the machine. They should erase them after trade in but I don’t know if they do that. I would erase all pertinent information.

 

Can I trade in a defective/broken console?

Yes but it will be hit with a refurb fee unless they don’t catch what the problem is.

 

How much does a PowerUp Rewards Pro subscription cost?

It costs $14.99 a month but soon they will have an elite program with better deals.

 

Can I stack two different trade-in promos?

Sometimes but not very often. One example is using the $5 dollar trade in card provided by some Gamestop employees.

 

I don’t like my Gamestops employees?

If they do something rude or you know is incorrect. Write it on the survey and usually someone will contact you. Otherwise I try to be civil. No one likes dealing with someone crazy at their job. Please try and have respect. Things work out way better when you have a good rapport with employees just don’t spill the beans about good trades or glitches.

 

My significant other thinks I am drug dealer?

Just explain to here that this is a hobby and that it is not illegal.

I sell a lot of stuff on Ebay and man do I hate that system. I have only been burned twice but almost always lose. Sometimes they are to lazy to counter claim or never actually send the item back. When I know that item was immaculate they usually wont fight it.

Yeah, I just cancelled the order. That was always my back-up plan. Just didn't like it, that's all.

Trade limits.  what stacks and what doesn't.  How 20/40/60 has worked in the past.  Maybe how to calculate bonuses?  Maybe not could be too confusing.

 

Also when trading an XBox One you need to log in with your account so they can test it.  GS doesn't have a guest account they can use (at least not at two of the stores I went to here in NY).

They don't always run that promo but calculating the percentage would be useful because most people don't calculate tiv percentages off base value
