Is the 70% for only one game or does it go across each game traded?


Just one, and the lowest value of them all as well

What I can't understand is why does GS give the non-member value if you're Elite or Pro, I mean what da fuq?
It's one thing to give the % bump off the non-member amount but shouldn't I get the Elite amount added. Seriously, what's the GD point of buying Elite or Pro if you don't get said TIV of the paid level?

F'ing GameStop!

Oh ffs. And how does it work if I'm trading a Switch game, and preordering a Switch game. Do the 3 promos stack? (70%, 40%, and $5 bonus)

lego games are pretty good BB>cash money movers

Couple of my local game stores are paying $20 cash each for most of the lego games.  Honestly you could probably sell Ninjago or marvel 2 on craiglist or FB marketplace for around $25 probably with no problems.

^ some of the $5 redbox games are going for around $12-13 credit with the bonus right now


PvZ2 is a $10 Redbox game but TIV after bonus at GS is $23.40, so it’s still around the same profit percentage. Easier to find than some of the $5 games too.

It should be for all games you are trading in, at least that is how it was when I used the scratch off from Pro Day.

 

A lot of jokers on here.  :razz:

Call of Duty and Madden are the best selling franchises around. It's a wild time to be alive. I may run for President at this point.


Pretty big difference between how much new and varied content you see in COD and Madden though. Hard to change the “maps” in Madden when they’re all 100-yard long football fields.

I got my first paper cutout instead of a game at Redbox this past weekend when picking up PvZ2. Thankfully it was easy enough to resolve by a five-minute call to their customer service.

 

For anyone that this has happened to before, were you asked to return the sleeve with the paper cutout?

Yeah every time I've had it happen they ask me to return it. Last time was two weeks ago. I was getting agents of mayhem and it came out with just the barcode ring taped to the case. I tried the same machine again and got the same thing. Hopped on the phone and they took care of it. They made the game so people couldn't buy it to right on the phone since I got more than 1 fraud copy.

Yes. Every time. Including 3 this weekend. You return them so they can take them out of circulation.

Empty cases happen to me in the city near poor neighborhoods. Same kiosks all the time. Sometimes I buy knowing they're gonna be empty just to get the empty cases out of circulation. Clearly Redbox doesn't check them on a regular basis.

Same for me, waiting on 4 transactions to hit my account still since 3/1. I'm wondering if getting points added from the scratch-offs are messing up their system? It lines up perfectly for me, but maybe it's just a coincidence. I got 15,000 points added on 3/1 from submitting the scratch-off code on the same day as Pro Day. No other activity on my account other than 5 points per day for checking in via the app.

Gamestop trade credit (on a card) to Amazon Cash is long, overcorrect?

Thanks. That's what I had assumed, but someone on Reddit swears by this:

 

GameStop is one of the companies/stores that you can reload your Amazon Cash card through your phone from the Amazon app by exchange of actual currency I.e dollars. CVS is another store.

 

It’s kind of a convoluted process since technically store credit isn’t dollar currency, so the way GameStop makes it work is you put your store credit on a gift card so that It becomes a suitable currency.

 

Transfer whatever amount of store credit you choose to a gift card at the store. Pull up the Amazon Cash card on your phone from your Amazon app or Wallet if on iPhone. Then in another transaction, you use the GameStop’s gift card‘s amount to exchange to Amazon Cash. So GameStop Credit ===> GameStop gift card ===> Amazon Cash

I just called CS and they weren’t aware of any issues with delayed PUR points, but the rep applied my missing points so my balance is up-to-date.

Very possible. I haven't actually tried it with the Switch promo, but I preordered a digital copy of Sea of Thieves on the 3rd (to game share) and that triggered the 40% trade promo.

Can’t you just preorder the physical and request to switch it to the digital version when you pick it up?

Mine from the 8th just posted, but still missing points from the 10th and also yesterday (11th), but I suppose there's always at least 1 day delay so maybe we're back to normal now.
