Tried stacking 40% with the $10 switch coupon and they did not stack.


It didn't stack last week when I tried it on 70% bonus. Figured it wouldn't on the 40% either.

Can confirm 20% Elite + 70% CS coupon + $10 switch coupon stack.

70% CS coupon? If you mean the 50% bonus scratch-off from Pro Day, your 70% would include the Elite bonus.

If you visit your regular store and ask them to call a prestige store in your state, they can walk through the transaction on the phone and give you the B2 and 10% without having to go anywhere. Mention that you are a barterer.

Me too, but I think Sunday will be the last day.

Now that I look back several pages, the ad did in fact say that the coupon would be "delivered" by the 17th, but not active until the 19th. All I recalled was the delivered by date, figuring that was the valid date.

I’m trading my high value games in today new super mario Bros and Mario 64 are 20-21 a piece...I don’t want to miss on that and wait for tomorrow’s sale

I got the email too. So you should get it today if you're supposed to get the coupon.

Interesting dilemma...my b2g1 will post tomorrow most likely. Is it better to do a 40% + the bumped values, or 70% + possibly tanked values? Seems like if they drop to 30 then the 70% will be (slightly) better, but if they drop to 25 then the current values + 40% will be better.

I’m in the same situation...

If the Elite 20% stacks with the $10 nsw coupon, it’s better to do that than the 40%.

There is a live countdown in the email showing we'll get that coupon in just under 36 hours, most likely 1am Monday morning CT.

The 40% and $10 NSW does not stack.

Yes, you should be able to do all that, including having your trade total pay for the membership.

 

As for the $10 promo vs. 40%, here's my math assumption for the titles bumped to $35 TIV with today's Prestige Day bonus factored in:

 

$10 coupon

$35 + $10 + $7 Elite [+ $3.50 10% Prestige Day bonus] = $52 [$55.50]

 

$5 bonus (for Fire Emblem Warriors)

$35 + $5 + $7 Elite [+ $3.50 10% Prestige Day bonus] = $47 [$50.50]

 

40% bonus

$35 + $14 [+ $3.50 10% Prestige Day bonus] = $49 [$52.50]

 

Since the 40% bonus includes the 20% Elite benefit, the $10 coupon looks to be slightly better for the 8 games to which it applies unless I'm missing something. The 40% is slightly better for FE Warriors.

Thanks.  I had the trades in my car and got your post in time. 

 

Think I did OK.

 

10 games 127.50 base.  Seemingly no prestige store near here.  One across the street from my parents are.  Way to far to go today for 10%.

 

I did the 40% bonus.   127.50 + 51 (40%) = $178.50

 

 

I re upped to Elite and put $5 down on Sea of Thieves.  $143.51 left in trade credit.

 

 

XBox One BioShock The collection shows $11 base on the app and website.  But was only $10 in store.  Not a big deal just strange.

 

Originally he scanned all 10 games and then put that on hold and was going to charge me $30 for Elite on a separate transaction.  I said I would rather use the credit from the trades.  He said that PUR is no problem but he has had issues doing Elite that way but would try.  It worked just fine as you said it would.  

 

Anyway thanks for the quick reply and math this morning.

- Hey POS which is more 20% of 35 or 10?

- Ahhhh ! Math is hard for computational machines. I don not know. I think I should just stack all of the deals.

Don’t we get both 20% and extra $10 if we trade in the qualifying switch games with the coupon?

Tomorrow, 3/14 is the LAST day to get the trade in bonus when buying a NEW switch game or console.

Plan accordingly.


Why did I just now pick up on this?

Hmm, hopefully I'll get one of those coupons, though I'm not getting my hopes up given I haven't received a countdown e-mail.

You're taxes are due in a month, unless someone still claims you as a dependent. GameStop does not issue a 1099.

I'm more concerned about not paying 40% in taxes than getting 40% in TIC from gamestop.

I assume this means an extra 50% on Switch games traded in and not an extra 50% towards Switch games.

LOL. Traded on 6 Switch games and got $220 at GameStop. The values are ridiculous. They were selling them new/used for less.
