If I place a pre-order at GameStop A, do I have to cancel it at that store or can I cancel it at GameStop B?

cancel only GS A, Cancel for purchase can at GS B....some cases the distances has to be great if not buying the same thing.

I hope double points "day" was good for everyone.  I know I had fun (even though I redeemed a $25 GS.com reward by accident). 

$290 to trade in a PS4 Pro

$400 to buy a PS4 Pro

$80 to pick up Ni No Kuni LE

$27 to trade in PvZ:Gw2

$65 to buy Minecraft Pig controller for Xbox One

 

= LOTS of points!

 

$80 more for trading an XB1, is that on top of the quoted value?

No, the value you see on the website is what they will give you.

I fell asleep before the mall closed and missed double points for GOW. Well, it’s only $1.80 in points lost. Still got my X and Origins/RE7GOTY for $10 each, and Labo. Should get like $35-40 worth of certs back.

Was GOW one of the Best Buy $10 back pre orders? I regret not checking .

Anyone know anything about issues with PSN accounts not being able to login in on PS4?  I just got a new pro about a month ago and just recently hooked it up and i have had issues where it won't login me in to my PSN account. It works fine on my vita, but from what i have found out it seems to be a random issue going.  Been almost 2 weeks and haven't been able to login in.

have you downloaded the system update? i think it will sometimes keep you from signing in and going online if you havent updated that yet.

Can you use a $5 new coupon and a $5 pre owned coupon on the same transaction?

How can you buy an item that is both new and used at the same time? Think about it. And if you still can understand it then the answer is no.

I’m aware that I don’t really deserve thanks and that I don’t put nearly as much effort as others would. I just didn’t want the thread to die. I am not really good at the cool links and Xbox/ps logos, and if I learned them I don’t think I have the time to really implement. The OP isn’t great but in my mind it’s better than nothing.

If anyone wants to take over because of formatting or wants to add more info, I am ok with that. In no way is this “my” thread. I’m a low level trader and sorry I never made the OP as nice as the Xbox or Eshop threads. No idea about the psn thread - stinks too much of fan boy for me to look

Edit: yup, psn OP looks great too. Yeah my OP is crap, any takers?

It's about the content for me. I don't care if it is not the prettiest OP post on the site.

I was up by my local game stop too early yesterday morning. Was only going to buy $40-$50 in space bucks. Decided it wasn't worth another trip later in the day.

I played on my PlayStation this morning with no issues. Saw a bunch of my friends online too.

It was like $90-100 before lol and it will probably drop till the next trade bonus they do, since the current one ends today.

[nevermind guess I should not have posted this link, my bad - sorry if it caused anybody problems I had no idea it could possibly do anything bad]

 

 

 

I'd love to hear if anybody is actually successful in claiming the new virtual trade card that is promised.  I never have been able to  get it so I make sure to go in store during a slow period and get an employee to call the dedicated help line for stores.  

 

Good Luck!

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I really enjoyed the cash same as credit promo. Even with the bad trade values, I made a nice profit. Cash is king!

Same I bought a huge Gameboy/Ds Lot for 125$ and After picking them up I instantly took 10 Ds games to gamestop for $100 and had 79 games left over lol

how is this determined? I have always had my trade credit on a trade card but I checked my account and it says $330 unused trade credit. That is kind of a lot so I submitted the form for a virtual trade card.

I’ll probably just wait then, I’m hoping for a good trade week for state of decay 2...just my switch has been collecting dust recently and there’s really no games on my radar rn. I’ll rebuy it when the online drops, my dock is all bent now anyway

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm sure all of us have placed orders online using trade credit only to have Gamestop cancel items or the entire order.  

I'm sure most people here have a ton of orders they've placed online still say "open" even though you'll never get whatever items haven't already been shipped.  I think both of those somehow play a part in it.   I also think that Gamestop may tell you that you failed placing an order, but if you paid by trade credit they might take that amount away from you anyway.   I also think that if your balance on a gift/trade card dips below a certain amount and isn't used within x amount of days, Gamestop just zeroes out that balance and only gives it back when you ask about it.   

 

I don't know for sure any of that is true, but the internet is full of complaints against Gamestop that are much worse then any of the things I wrote above.  The ridiculous emails I've exchanged with Gamestop customer service are so stupid that I have to believe they are just trolling me.   The runaround is so insane, it's almost an artform.  That's why I've always had to go in store to claim it.

that link has floated around before, all you people are doing by submitting is putting the credit on your account in limbo, there is no free money there.

It never goes though. Unless you know for certain you’ve misplaced a $100-$200 card from some big trade ya did (something that’d be immediately noticeable to most of us) then it’s either counting your existing unspent cards or double counting cancelled orders whose cards you later spent elsewhere as mentioned above.

The initial amount said won’t be reflected in what’s emailed to you (a zero dollar code) and if you ask customer service about it they’ll say the initial offer was a mistake.

Yeah this is f'd up. Good thing I've saved all my receipts since July 2017. Half way through and I think I see some credit missing, but it's hard to say because online orders don't show you payment method or card you paid with.

My local Gamestop had a used God of War yesterday. It was $38 After Elite, Birthday coupon and tax. Not expecting the guaranteed $40 since it said "New" in disclaimer, but I have it loaded in my app. Throw in the 2x points and I used trade-in credit, solid CAG deal.

Must be some of those folks who got early copies. I can't imagine anyone buying this game and thinking "This sucks" and trading it the very next day.
