An employee at a local store just told me they're going to be doing a prestige day on the 27th. Anyone know if there's truth to this?

I was thinking we were due for another one soon (about every three months). Last time was B2g1 and 10 percent extra credit on trades?

I figure those would be the next Qs

That was the deal on the last prestige day. I think they also offered an extra 10% off collectibles. 

 

The only store near me that was prestige is not qualified now though.

Just some info on GS biz since I follow it -

 

Their Technology Brands aren't doing so well, as they stated a week ago (then their stock tanked 10% despite high holiday sales of Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch). GS tried to invest in areas outside of games to diversify themselves, as the digital future looms.  But it's a failure since they are beholden to outside forces not within their control. Their collectibles game is slightly up.

 

Regardless, investors are not happy when a company ventures into areas that they can't capitalize in, and expectations were not met, hence the sell-off.  Xbox One also announced today more of their new 1st party titles will be on GamePass, a subscription service compared to Netflix.  This is going to add more headwind to the physical game's market, affecting GS. 

 

They are in a tight spot.  I was not feeling Elite before, but have come around somewhat. I think it might help them in the long run and the pressure they are feeling from all sides might see some benefit to us.  More points from Elite, means more conversion to keep business there.  I just joined Elite so it's still early to see the savings difference from Pro, but I'm keeping track.

Local store confirmed that there would be one on the 27th.

Wow they're cutting it close with information about it. If b2g1 was confirmed I would stock up on used switch games around here.

I just got a B2G1 coupon that expires 4/29. Should I sit on it and wait for a stealth bump or promo % increase?

Isn’t CheapyD also a David A. from Long Island New York, like the David A. who recently won the 1 million PUR points?

Funny how it happens right after blackbeard and his sheets get banned from the site...

Also funny how CheapyD is affiliated with GameStop...

Hmm... I’m not normally a conspiracy theory kinda guy, but I think we all may have just been sold out for some GameStop rewards points 🤔🤔🤔

You guys need to stop defending Blackbeard and show some respect to the real HNIC, CheapyD. He’s done so much for us all. All Blackbeard did was compile a set of data so mfers like you all can get all the penny guides instead of the true gamers like us who remember the days we ordered Sega Saturn games and was lucky to actually receive them.


Cheapy has done so much like create this great site and the forum. He posts all these great deals and keeps the site updated so the experience makes it near impossible to leave. Blackbeard is the past, Cheapy D is the future.

That was some weak-ass photoshop right there. 3/10

Obviously you can’t post a giant penis on this website, even if it has my cartoon face on it.

Sunrise, someone emailed that to you?

If there are 3 things you have your eye on I'd buy them now and wait until we see what they do for prestige day. If they do a b2g1 just return and rebuy them with that.

I... don't know? Kinda why I asked the question. It's either a coincidence about the name and stuff or not, and I'm not in place to actually know whether any bit of it is true.

I like how the only David A. in New York is obviously cheapy.

 

Besides, a million points isn't that much considering how much you can get by exploiting the check in on the app, right zsaber?  That's a violation, imo

You guys were on the right track.  GameStop didn't rig a contest for me but I did get this sweet ride.
