No dice on that one, in the corrected ad the final page is B2G1 only.

Ah alright, interesting. All the stores in my area that I went to still have the old ad!

I would definitely try to buy it then.

If this was really a POS system issue at some stores then they should not have those stores eligible for it until they upgrade those systems. No need to pause it nationwide for that unless they really are that cheap and stupid to not have computers that can handle a rental program. I kinda don't believe that excuse though.

Is injustice 2 $1 less, or was it always $14?


It was always $14.

I wouldn't do the deal. I think it's a bad decision on gamestop's part to limit themselves. They're just going to have to hold more inventory for that much longer until, like you said, it goes on clearance anyway.


It depends on what you get. The pokemon tins are on sale for $10 and normally $20. Another 25% is a steal since those rarely go clearance.

What’s the best way to take Redbox stickers off the disc? I bought $80 worth of RB games today, gonna flip them to a few stores tomorrow. I should get $330 in credit, though I guess I’ll have to buy 3 copies of WW2 (1 at each store). If I get gift receipts, would I have trouble returning them for store credit? I could always return them to Walmart for gift cards I guess.

Ugh... I had forgotten today was the last day for the trade bump. Just have to wait and see if the game I'm going to trade in will still be worth something. Hoping to pay a new controller with trade credit only.

 

Edit: Thankfully the trade value of the game dropped back to its normal value. Looking forward to get that Crystal controller today.

Welp, just tried to trade in a few more games from Redbox and was told I have been banned. Called cs and they said they didn’t see a reason why. I have not traded in more than 3 of any title and traded those in separate trades.

If you are really into collectibles or want something bigger than the bag talk to your store. Some DLs are telling their stores to discount anything (toys, collectibles, mugs, etc) as long as you buy a bag. I saw it on reddit and just talked to my store

So safe bet that we aren't getting the usual stealth bump at the end of the month given we already got one likely because of Black Friday, agreed?

Probably not. Some switch games appear to be up. PS4 took a dive. A lot other games nose dived. Some lower valued items held steady.

Waiting to see what happens on Monday.

if the trade in value on the app and in-store were different, they have to follow the price on the app right?

When does GameStop usually flip the switch for deals based on the day? Midnight? 3am? eastern? Pacific?

Yeah just saw that. I'm figuring holiday return policy applies just in case there are better prices on my keepers.

In for doing some Gamestop flips, any recommendations for what games or alternatives?


No.

The general recommendation is that this is

1) where you start doing your own leg work.

And

2) where loose lips sink ships.

It's like heroin. Once you start you can't stop. It'll probably kill you in the end. You'll definitely suck a lot of dirty dicks before you get to that point though.


P.S. Best strategy is buy low sell high.

I just ready that tiny fine print on the B2G1 tomorrow. It's a certificate. One per account. Must be surrendered at time of use.


Hopefully they're at least going to give us the old school pre nerf certificates.

Can I go tonight to get my Gamestop BF items, then return/rebuy later?   I've got family family family for BF and won't be able to make it early in the sale and am worried everything will sell out.

Where's the certificate? I don't see it in the app where I got the notification. And I didn't get an email.
