Yeah I read that...

 

I'm still hoping it's just poor wording on their part.

Yeah sorry, just reread your post. This will be great, as this could allow for some great console trades (since values are good til 4/22). We may only have Friday to take advantage of it, if it's actually valid, as I'm sure somebody will post it to reddit/slickdeals/whatever and get the deal killed.

Double points on Saturday > $80 guaranteed TIC for PS3 towards PS4 Pro GoW bundle > $50 bonus for trading switch/PS4/X1 towards GoW (game only) > trade both copies of GoW back in before 5/22/18 (get most return with probable trade promo).
 
I dunno if the system is gonna have any issues doing this. Could go to 2 separate stores, but would rather do it in 1 transaction.

Dont forget double points Fri and Sat

People that have multiple unused consoles laying around.

Well yes, but who other than people in this thread and dealers of various types have that type of inventory to trade in?

 

I just got off the phone with my home store's SL and she said it SHOULD be a trade towards the PS4 Pro bundle, but nothing definite though.  While they have them available for pickup tonight, I'll wait for tomorrow to see if I get the coupon for $40 for the game by buying the bundle (AND double points).

Knew it was saturday, and saw the "2x points" picture above, but I tend to skim over posts so didn't see it was for Friday as well. Thanks.

Are we expecting that there will be no GoW dlc as there is no season pass included in any of the bundles?

This is surely stolen?

Says it's "new" in the condition field, and doesn't say anything else in the ad besides their phone #. Asked for a pic of the receipt, haven't heard back, but this just seems too good to be true.

PS4 Pro White Destiny 2 Edition $199 YMMV https://brickseek.co.../?sku=336136643

 

My local store dropped it down early this morning to $199 showing 3 in stock, but they couldn't be found.

 

Edit: Oops, was meant for the Walmart thread :P

There is a Deluxe Edition but it looks like it doesn't come with any game-based content.  Only soundtrack, themes, etc.

Probably, but I can see that the box is open so "open" must be the new "new."

How many thieves steal the original boxes along with a console and a game? I'd trust this over a console missing a controller and other accessories, or a game with no case.

The carpet also looks well cleaned and cared for... I'd say this is just someone who doesn't realize or care about the value of the console.

The mafia stole a truckload of gaming hardware and software. Now they're trying to unload it. If there's plastic on the couch/floor you're in trouble.

I had 4 preorders at one particular store (inlcuding the XB1 X "information request" preorder)...all disappeared from my account today.  But the single preorder I have at a different store is still there.  This happen to anyone else?

My Yakuza 6 premium edition arrived today. Total out of pocket cost ~$16.

I learned that

1) you can only use a maximum of 2 certs online which means a maximum of $75 off a single online item.

2)although the certs T&C indicate value shipping only, free 2 day shipping for elite PUR still worked.

3) If an online transaction fails to complete and you receive an error, credit cards do not get charged, but paypal does.

Hope those notes help somebody.

All my already delivered and picked up orders are gone (idk why they were there for months), one of my preorders for Ni No Kuni is gone even though I never picked it up, and my paid-in-full Dark Souls remastered for Switch is gone too. Hopefully just a problem with the app...

Yes, including Dark Souls Remastered for Switch. I paid $5 down on it too. Anyone know how I can get the $5 back if it was trade card I used up?

Similar here. All of my preorders were at the same store. 3 total. X1X is gone (good riddance). Switch Dark Souls Remastered is gone. GoW still there.

Switch Dark Souls Remastered got its release date pushed back but was there yesterday with an indefinite release date.

Luckily I still have all my reciepts.

They just put it on whatever card you want to swipe (or a new one), or you can use it towards something right then.

I traded my PS4 slim and monster hunter for an iPad pro last month and wanted to get the GoW one. Thanks for the response mates!

Is this normal? Do people just drop $400 dollars on a console and get rid of it within a couple of months? Then want to buy another one for $400? I get it if you were upgrading, I mean I traded in my launch og PS4 for the monster Hunter pro. Which made it worth it.

I dont care how people spend their money, I am just trying to understand the logic involved.

In the past year I have sold my original PS4, bought a PS4 pro, sold it to buy a Switch, then bought a slim from GameStop Black Friday deal and realized I wasn't going to play it so I sold it. Then I bought an old firmware PS4 to play with homebrew, realized I didn't care enough and sold that. There are not many people like me: I impulse buy with great hopes and then quickly sell because I hate to have my things laying around unused.

I just checked in with my local store about my dark souls + amiibo pre-orders that disappeared. They said the pre orders are still there but they changed the release date to year 0001 instead of 2018 since theres no firm release date yet. so the system thinks they already came out and they don't show in the app. So dont worry folks. Your pre-orders are still valid and they will pop back up when theres a release date.

Depends. I sometimes just buy consoles to play a certain game or games. Did that with the switch twice. And did it just recently with the PS4 pro I had (though with that, I planned on not buying another PlayStation until the ps5 came out). Still on the fence, as I'm really hoping that ps5 is backwards compatible (but at the same time I have a stack of games that are losing value and I don't know if I want to wait 1-2 years or longer for the ps5).
