Yeah you’re right...nice. At least one is a decent mover to BB.

Also noticed that the top tier NSW games dropped another dollar to $25 base TIV. Hopefully some of these rebound soon, but I’m sure GS had plenty traded in a week or so ago.


I'm pretty sure that $25 is what they've been at since they all dropped from $35 during the last bump.

I mistyped. The base is still $25...carry on!

It says for fortnite. Does fortnite have an in game currency that can be purchased for task money? I don't even think you can enforce that in the Xbox ecosystem. Doesn't a prepaid gamestop xbox code show up as non game specific ms currency?


There are no fortnite cards. The trade promo is for Xbox or Playstation cards. It's just a marketing strategy with how big the game is.

Thanks. That's what I thought.

You joke but those buttholes wouldn't even take my ps4 without the micro USB cable. I walked down to the dollar store and got one for $1. They wanted to deduct $20 from the total.


Would you want to buy a console with no way to charge the controller? Although the store just should have made you buy a cable instead of doing a refurb fee, as long as they had cables in stock.

Seems like it worked out though as $1 is less than the $10-$15 those cables are in store.

Yes they work just fine. I used a $15 cert yesterday to pick up nba live 18 for free.

thanks for the heads up.  Needed to burn a $15 cert as it's expiring at the end of this month.  Stupid that I only had about 3 weeks to use it as I redeemed it weekend before last.

Can anyone confirm that they are getting $10 in rewards for purchasing FarCry 5? I went into a store on Friday and they had no idea what I was talking about


I'm thinking not as the page their YT video linked to no longer says anything about it.

They needed a sensor bar for my old Wii, I said can I just buy a used one from you for a dollar and trade that and they said no they have to deduct based on the (MsRP) of a brand new third party one sold only online, $20.

The wii only got $45 so it wasn’t worth me driving to a pawn shop to buy one for a buck.


That's BS as that item they would of charged you for wouldn't ship to a store & they would just get corporate to send them a sensor bar.

Sounds like you need to report the store at tellgamestop dot com.

A lot of the stuff in this thread is shady, but the stuff I’ve seen some GS employees lie about has been pretty bad too.

-adding warranties without informing me (I’ll get a couple warranties if the employee is helpful but it’s shady to charge and not say anything)
-adding refurb fees without informing me
-“exchanges” that result in you losing money (return a $40 game for a $30 one and employee didn’t want to give me the difference)
-straight up lying about certain preorder promos (you only have to put $5 down but multiple employees said it would only work with full amount)

I get they have to keep their numbers up and all. I worked in retail for many years. Still, deceitfulness is never the answer.

Anybody have a $25 trade in coupon they're not going to use?

 

If not, if I upgrade to pro in store, will they let me get the 25 bonus immediately or do I need to get it in an email? I want to trade in my ps4 for a ps4 pro.

I don't plan on using mine. Hit me up in the next hour, otherwise I'm gone for two days.

I had a sunset overdrive white VCR XBO bundle that I wanted to keep, but $165 is just too good of a value, hope I can track down a white VCR console years down the road for much cheaper. I hadnt touched it in like 3 years.

My TRU in Plainsboro, NJ was not packed when I stopped by yesterday just to get a lay of the land. Consoles as mentioned were %5 and software %10. I don't know how this store was not in the first round of cuts because it is never busy that being said they had a lot of software still left including older PS3 and Xbox 360 games. Might be worth a re-visit in a few weeks to look for some older Wii U titles, 3ds, and 360 that people might be as interested in getting. They had no Switches or Ps4's but the had Xbox One S and X, 3ds, and PS VR bundles.

I went to the counter to ask if they had any Preowned Starfox Zero copies.  They took one out of the drawer (I guess it was a "converted to preowned" copy, because it was still sealed.)  They ran their hand down the seal to start to tear it open.  Then they said "Oh, I guess it was sealed!"  Well, not anymore, LOL!

Was able to use some reward coupons to buy some games from GS to move to BB. I don’t remember BB requiring 2 IDs though. Glad I left my work ID in my wallet. First time this has happened in Northern VA.

I must mention that I managed to acquire around 18 copies of Star Fox Zero, all brand new for around $40. and yes they were with the slip cover that includes SF Guard. One of my best scores ever! :D

I’ve had the refurb fees charged without knowing but never warranties (yet). Like you, I bought a warranty simply because an employee was so helpful and nice. She even went to the back to get the best looking cases/cover art when I was buying 4 / $10.

Edit: Did they replace the week 1 Play Days deals with week 2 or just add onto them? Dark Souls Fire Fades is no longer $20.

You can. I bought a $50 Home Depot card 2 weeks ago with trade credit. No problem.

I bought home depot credit from gs. I attempted to use the home depot gift card for other gift cards at home depot but register would not let it happen.

I sold 2 $100 home depot gift cards to gift card websites. One website gave $88 amazon credit. Another website gave $84 paypal.

I'm not a pc gamer but I've been using my of PC to play The fractured but whole and Ni No Kuni 2 so wanted to play wirelessly but my controller wasn't Bluetooth and the adapter costs $25 so today I traded in my Forza Motorsports 6 original Xbox one for $175 ($150 plus the $25 extra coupon) and got the Xbox one s sea of thieves. Then talked to the guys and traded in the sea of thieves game right after and bought defective Pikachu 😜 to get the extra 40% that I'm planning on returning tomorrow. So it was $175 for the Xbox and the coupon and $30 for sea of thieves. Total: $205 so $45 out of pocket (out of credit actually) to upgrade my Xbox one And the Bluetooth controller to play on my PC isn't bad at all.

GS > BB credit movers. This is taking into consideration BB GCU and GS Elite. Also takes into consideration that in Illinois there is also no tax on Gamestop purchases if you use tradecredit (not sure how it is in other states).

Battlefront 2 (XONE used)
NBA 2K18 (Switch)
Assassin's Creed (PS4 + XONE)
Middle Earth Shadow of War (PS4 + XONE used)
Madden 18 (PS4 + XONE used) - Minor Loss Less than $1
Skyrim (PS4 + XONE used) - Minor Loss Less than $1


Thanks homie. Transferred $140 worth of credit and looking forward to making mo' doe

Does anyone if BB takes Arms for trade-in? It isn't showing up on the web... which seems odd to me for a first party Switch game.

Thank you kind sir! I was able to move $450 worth of GS trade credit to BB. Like some others in the thread mentioned, I’m going to get Disney GCs for my upcoming trip in May! Thanks to you my hotel is paid for, and it was probably on about $100 of my own money initially used.
