May be a stupid question but I had a buy 2 get 1 for preowned games the other day but two of them suck, can't get into them at all. If I return them what happens, can I pick out two different ones or will I just get money back for one since one of them was the free game?

If your store is cool and/or has a knowledgeable employee, you might be able to exchange the two games for two others at the same price point if you explain the situation.

Is transferring from one preorder to another equivalent to canceling? In other words, does the store take a hit from it?

Splatoon 2 would give $49 today or tomorrow. $35(base)+$14(20% elite+20% preorder bonus)


Would you get $52 today if you still have the switch coupon?

Yes but then they get credit for your new preorder.

It's a wash because the new pre order your transferring to counts positively. It's essentially canceling the one pre order and then making a new pre order of the other game.

I had a store state that they could not see an older preorder from the same location. I wanted to transfer it to something new. I see it in the app. So I had to do a new one. Were they pulling my chain or could they really not see it?

Burnout Paradise remastered is already $22 used with Elite. 

 

Must be selling bad. Hope this doesn't mean we won't get a Burnout 3 remastered.

In my (Android) app, I still see a CoD:WWII pre-order that I moved over to CoD:BO4 last week, even though that WWII pre-order is officially canceled.  Did you cancel that pre-order and forget about it perhaps?

Typically though EOB Monday, but I bet some values could change before then...

Have Elite Pro and order more than $35 worth of stuff.

Also, last I checked it was $35 pre discounts. YMMV, but that seems to apply to both promo discounts and any Elite Pro discount. 

 

Source: had $8 worth of 4 for 10 games ship for free because they were $40 pre discount.

Got the last "new" copies of Lego world and Lego ninjago and they were opened display copies. Of course the my Nintendo coins had been redeemed for both by some scummy GameStop employee. Gotta love their "new" games.

Can’t add to cart online and app, looks like the race to find in store begins.

Good luck most stores seem to have only one copy in stock each. lol

Apologies if this has been covered, but does anyone know if the $10 extra trade credit coupon for select Switch games stacks with the promotion of an extra $5 for Switch games (which expires today)? Thanks.

No, and as I just learned, you can’t even use the $10 right now because they won’t stack. The $5 applies automatically, and can’t be taken off. The dilemma is I’m guessing the switch tivs go down tomorrow..

I was able to use the +$10 today in a separate transaction.  Won't work alongside other games getting promos.

Thank you both for the info. As for Switch values, the email I got advertising trade values said values were guaranteed through 3/19 and 2 Switch titles are displayed. While it does have an * indicating the usual disclaimer that things can change as GS sees fit, I expect them to hold so... I won't even be attempting to use my coupon today :)

Most of the time cags know the promos better than the employees,
