Once your ID is tied to a account it still counts even if you don't have to use a ID for the trade. For instance if you have two separate accounts and both of them have had a trade in with your ID. Your ID will be locked to both accounts so if you hit a ban on one account it will effect the others that are linked to your ID.


But if I’m using a friend’s account, how would they know? I suppose they could ask randomly, but they’ve only asked me once or twice on the first day of having the account and I think it was because my ID hadn’t been associated with my account yet. Haven’t been asked for ID since.

I'm in CA too and deal with the same thing. Can't do the multiple accounts trick. I just have mine and another I can use (don't ask). Buying on one account and trading in on another really helps you look like a great customer.

That’s good to know. In my state it used to be a toss up on whether or not they’d ask for ID and/or do fingerprints but now it’s pretty much 98% of the time. It’s still very YMMV on if they will accept trades with an expired license but I guess that’s everywhere.
I’m just happy I don’t have to pay sales tax on credit purchases.

If I bought no more heroes last Friday, should I get the trade bonus?

BTW there's an Easter Sale that starts on Sunday that will run that week. Usual suspects regarding deals (i.e. GTA V $29.99 etc.). The PS4 Playlink titles are all on sale for $4.99 each. I'll post highlights later when I get home from work ;)

So...are you home from work yet?

Was it on sale for 9.99 at the time? The Switch sale ran until the 10th I believe.

Have 2 prestige stores by me. Guess I’ll have to hope one has all the good switch games I need then go trade in at the second store.

I thought trade limit was $1000, $2k when you run two accounts?

The only limit of which I am aware that is $1000 is the amount of trade credit that can go on one card.

 

Can’t be right. Don’t see any prestige store around my area in North DFW area. Usually there are 3-4 prestige stores but none now? Did GS changed the way Prestige stores are identified on their site?

The only one I see in the DFW area marked as Prestige is in Irving.  This is reflected at www.gamestop.com, Google Maps, and the GameStop app.

The Irving one is my home store! Even though it doesn't show on google and on the app there is one in Coppell and Garland that are also Prestige stores and have confirmed they'd be having the sale tomorrow when I called them earlier.

Good to hear, I'll call my usual suspects tomorrow.

A little off topic but SAVER no longer works at Gamestop?  Is there some other code that can be used for free shipping of in-stock items?  Thanks

Where did you buy No More Heroes?

 

 

I assume you bought Has Been Heroes.

The one on Broadway in Garland is still a Prestige

I’m pretty sure the only way to get free shipping is with an elite account and an order of $35 or more.

I've been banned a good few hundred short of the limit before and well under the game limit. Most likely you got flagged by a JD. I had the happen to me on a simple trade in because I used the $5 barcode from my phone back when that was a thing.

I read the last few pages but want to double-check before I trade tomorrow if values hold: Is the best trade-in offer the 40% NiNoKuni/SoT + 10% Prestige store promotion? I have that $10 Switch trade-in on my account but somebody said that doesn't stack so I assume it is a no go.

 

Also, is it still true that if you buy games from one store and trade in at another on the same day they won't see the transaction history? One of my local store's is run by JD so I won't even bother trying to buy and flip if it isn't the case.

The prestige 10% usually stacks with any other offers. The 40% should be more than the $10 for most switch games on that list.

They can’t see same day transactions, but they can call/txt from store to store if they think you’re boomeranging.

Only two GS in town, but the non-prestige has all the best games. Don't want to be annoying and return/rebuy multiple games...

They can't see same day, but it's best to try and avoid JD stores altogether.

So just to be sure, how many copies of the same switch game can I trade in a month to not get banned?

Stealth bump was likely one day only considering most of the stuff bumped is on sale starting tomorrow. Try to save values in the app around 3:50 am eastern.

Do you think its going to be a 1 day bump? Has that happened before?

The Play Days sale starts Sunday so there might be one more day of bump shenanigans to take advantage of...

Is my math correct? If I'm an elite member and I'm trading in a $35 switch game at a PRESTIGE store tomorrow, then:

 

using the 40% ninokuni2 preorder nets me: $35 + $14 (40% preorder bonus) + $3.50 (prestige bonus)  = $52.50

or

using the $10 coupon nets me: $35 + $7 (20% elite bonus) + $3.50 (prestige bonus) + $10 (coupon) = $55.50

 

So the coupon is simply better, correct?


Sup.

The $10 switch coupon may stack on the Ni No Kuni bonus. The coupon stacked with the 5 dollar trade in bonus on switch. $45 trade in credit for 1-2 Switch was very nice

4 per rolling 30 days
