As someone who used the Summer Swap program, the GS CPU-system made it a living nightmare. At one point in the middle of the program, the code stopped working for a week. By the end of the program, I was relieved to be done with it for that reason only. Otherwise, great concept.


Thanks for that info. Makes me wonder that if this really is the reason, and they knew about it being problematic during the test run, why it wasn't fixed.

I'm disappointed that it's on hold, sounded like a great promo.

what is the likelihood of being banned for trading in more than 3 copies of the same game on the same platform if broken up over a few different transactions? I have 4 copies of madden 17 for xbox360 I picked up from redbox and want to maximize trade in value for them

Thanks, so it'll be 30% plus elite so a total of 50%.

do you have to buy cod wwii or can you like put some towards it as long as it's not over the amount total and get it refunded later? edit: meh, i guess you gotta actually buy the game and return it later. ill just stick with the 20% for other games

Just got an email a little while ago saying you get an extra 40% credit (Elite) when trading towards ultra sun or moon.

 

Edit: Nevermind on the code, forgot it was only for COD. Still 10% less in that case. However US/UM are cheaper compared to COD. Assuming you're returning the games it shouldn't matter though I guess.

At this point you have to buy it since it has been released, and return it for the best return.

Is there a way to use my PUR B2G1 coupon online or is it in-store only?

I was going to say read the FAQ but it doesn't have this Q/A oddly enough.  Probably should be added.  The PUR B2G1 is in store only.

 

Also to add to the Elite Pro section, it should be noted that you can't extend/stack years on to get additional B2G1 coupons.

If I were to extend a Pro membership a few years to get some B2G1 coupons before moving over to Elite to get the money back, would I have to buy each year in separate transactions on different days or can I just extend it a few years in one go? Also do the Pro B2G1 coupons expire at the end of the year as well?

Separate transactions, different days

Yes the coupons come in batches

So this batch all expire on 12/31/17

4th gets you banned correct?

It’s automatically done by the system, so I would say 100% chance

4 is the limit per rolling 30 days. Do 1 per location, never sane game same location same transaction. I usually do them in very short window on the same day or spread them out over days.

If you get lucky Ferari Racer will stop by and do a news media meme for you.

4 is the limit. 5th gets you banned.

How about, read the coupon it says "in store only." At least it used to.

I thought it was 4 is the limit, so the 5th would be the ban.

Thanks everyone. Also looks like elite pro is not stacking with the 4 for $10 online currently. Not sure how the math works out but using the cod code got $26.25 for xbox360 madden 17. I figured it should have been $25.2.

Just wanted to say the GS customer service number is a f***ing joke. Told me estimated wait time was 15 minutes been waiting for about 20 mins still haven't gotten through.

No email support and they took off the chat support. I will be filing a claim on BBB. Any holds for trade credit/gift card should not be held if an order is cancelled

Today I was told 1/14/2018. And remember if the seal is broken it's used. So if you plan on returning a new item as new don't break the seal. I figure that's pretty obvious to most people, but apparently the associate had to remind me.

I didn't see anything about this in the FAQ and am not sure if this is even allowed here so let me know, but can I purchase something at Gamestop using someone elses Power Up Rewards number?  And just get that person the credit and stuff?

 

The reason I ask is because I rarely shop at Gamestop, however I see that Pro and Elite PUR members can get $30 off of the Turtle Beach headset I'm looking to purchase, and was just wondering if I could just use someone elses for that one purchase.  Like do they check ID or anything?

 

I guess I could also purchase Pro PUR for $15 and I'd still save $15, but it would be nice to save $30 and then I could help someone else out by getting them the rewards points for the purchase.

If you want to get the discount and your friend get the points, just give your friend's phone number when you make your purchase.

 

I make purchases on my GF account all of the time. Some stores even ask me if I"m buying for me or for her when I go to check out.

Gotcha.  Well I guess what I was getting at, is does anyone on this forum want to let me use their Pro/Elite rewards account and you in turn will get the $30 purchase points towards your account :)

Typically they only require Id for trades. Shouldn't really be an issue to use a friend's account.
