Does it show up as a digital purchase on GameStop.com or in the app? Probably not but maybe worth a look.

I just looked and I guess I bought a year of PSN in November. It shows up there for me. Along with several $10 PSN codes.

No I already check and I don’t have it. I guess I lost my $50

I only have the transaction with the PSPlus SKU

It's a hassle, but if you go to the GS you bought it from, the manager can potentially look up the receipt in their system and reprint it. It's a major pain in the ass, and some associates don't even know it's possible, so GL

I’m hoping that it takes a while for the code to appear on My Power Up Digital Locker otherwise I’m screwed

Can anyone confirm the 4 for $20 is dead? The weekly ad said it was good until the 19th, but I see the 4 for $10 on the app now. I did a WIS for some $9.99 PS3 games to have adjusted when they arrive, and of course they got pushed back from Saturday to tomorrow.

If you view the ad online, it does say that it ends the 17th.  They may have change it to that.

Yeah unfortunately for me instead of going to Microsoft customer service I went to my bank to dispute the charges. While I was temporarily given a credit, a few months later my claim was reversed because Microsoft disputed my claim. At that point I basically needed a lawyer for $200 so I just let the whole situation go and ate the loss.


Yeah as a note companies actually lose money on chargebacks (the reversed money AND a fee from the bank) so they will almost always try to dispute them even if they know it's fraud. Always go to them first, a lot of companies have procedures for dealing with fraud and it's way faster than a chargeback.

I deal with them at my job and it sucks to see people wait a month to maybe get their money from a chargeback whereas if they just contacted us and let us know, I could resolve it within the week.

I used to do that type of work as well. Still at the same company, but just a different department. Credit card disputes can take forever versus waiting the standard 2-3 business days.

Guys I need help. I bought 1 year of PS Plus on Friday and idk what happened but I lost the receipt and there was the code for the PS Plus. Do you guys know if there’s any way they can provide me with another code?

If you are a pur member and it was code on your receipt check the app. There will be a copy of the code in the digital locker.

here I was expecting the potential %70 bonus (50 promo + 20 elite bonus)....

they screwed it all up by adding the elite vs pro and using that to act like it's something special.

All I see is decreased trade promos.  Especially if you're not elite

For anyone who may have received the double points coupon already...  Did it come by email and/or show up in the app?  What are the valid dates?  If you placed multiple pre-orders did you get more than 1 coupon? Does it look like it's a unique single use code or something generic?

 

Gamestop's Facebook post on it make it seem like it would come on the 21st.  I'm just trying to plan ahead and sort my trades, I have LOTS to take in and had made 2 different pre-orders at different stores.

Awesome that you found it!  Going forward, chant this phrase every time you walk into a GS:

 

"Email receipts are your friend.  Please send a receipt to my email."

 

Even though I do that every time I walk into a GS (well, not really), the associates are so used to doing print receipts that their muscle memory sometimes refuses to allow anything but a physical receipt.

It was in my active offers Saturday morning. Used it that day on a huge trade/purchase. So far I only got the standard elite pro amount of points for the transaction. If I remember correctly the valid date was till the end of August.

Well, who knows how real the 70% ever was...after all this is the internet.

@ Geese - Thanks for sharing your experience with trading in your Xbox One. All the more reason for me to keep my VCR model. That, and the fact that my TV only does 1080 resolution. Will buy an external hard drive soon.


I would have just traded in for an S. If that power brick dies your out of luck as the adapter is discontinued & the third party ones suck b/c they shut off if they are remotely touched.

Plus the S is 1/2 size & runs much quieter.

When is the 4 for $10 start? What games are u getting?

I’m thinking of getting painkiller Ps3, but not sure what else. I have both Xbox 360, Ps3. I was thinking of getting reasonance of fate, but not sure what is better on Ps3 or Xbox 360?

Off topic but is there any issues to be wary of with the xbox one x? Local Letgo member has one for sale for 325. Was going to purchase new for 450 but 325 is very tempting

4 for $20 must have ended yesterday as I tried to buy 4 9.99 games today and they rang up $7.99 each. They had signs up for the 4 for $10 in the store also so that must have started this morning.

Probably the best built console ever release IMO.

I sure hope so for 500 original. I really do think 325 is a great price too

Aside from whatever hard drive issue mentioned above the X seems like a damn good console , small quiet solid , hard to smudge, no power brick , no capacitive touch sensitive buttons

Had my "this is the last straw" frustrating GS experience last weekend, so I'm cashing in my chips and getting out, especially now that I've read that they're in talks/taking offers to be bought out.

 

I've got a couple hundred in trade credit on my card, so... other than physical items (that would have to be resold or traded somewhere else) what can I move this credit into for the most bang? I'm pretty sure gift cards are out, but wasn't sure what else they'd discontinued allowing trade to be put towards.

Use it to buy Southwest gift cards. That way GS can pay for your vacation one last time.

I bought some switch games using the b2g1 coupon, and flipped them on Facebook marketplace. Asked $45/each, and got a bunch of offers for $35-ish. At the very least, you shouldn't have issues selling them at cost (if you have elite, that's a little less than $31 apiece). Not sure if the coupons still work on multiple sets of 3, but buying and reselling is probably the best way of cashing out. That and it will help you get rid of some of your purse points.

I mean, exclusives aside on Sony's end, the X has been consistently out classing the Pro on platform comparisons, so if you're willing to put the money commitment into the MS ecosystem it's not a bad choice at all, plus you get 4k bluray playback, which Sony never went in on

Perhaps at some point. I don't have the money to upgrade to the S model at the moment, and I definitely wasn't trading towards a Switch since I'm pretty much done with Nintendo. My VCR model might fail, but we're not talking red rings of death here. I haven't really noticed that it's loud either, but I mainly play Spelunky, do daily Bing searches, and watch porn on it.

I have about 10 games to trade in totaling $100 base - question for the pros
1) is this promo worth it / or should I wait
I don’t have any pro membership - so 30% is the best I can do I think

Depends on the games honestly. If it's Nintendo games I would hold out for the potential stealth bump
