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.


Wait, those are two different things.

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

Is a b2g1 coupon worth $5 to you? If so I'd upgrade to a Pro membership and trade the games for $140 (well $125 after putting $15 towards the bpro membership, instead of $130 you'd get if you were to just trade them in without a membership).

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.

It's not good bang for your buck, but the no hassle way is buy giftcards to sell online (e.g. Cardpool). Whole Foods can get you 83% ROI cash, 88% if you get Amazon credit. Again, not a great return, but hassle free.

So you can still buy Amazon GC with GS credit? Everything I've seen says otherwise.

I think he's saying to buy whole foods gift cards then trade them in to cardpool and select Amazon gift card as the payout method instead of cash which would get you 88% of the total whole foods gift card.

It’s for trading in any retro console.

I know this is kinda OT, but with the talks of a GS buyout, does anyone have any recommendations on what to do with giftcard balances and unused PUR points? 

 

I was gonna wait until BF this year and cash out since I literally have not stepped inside a Gamestop in over a year. I used to shop there all the time but it's been fairly easy to find better deals elsewhere.

Hmm, I wonder what they consider to be a retro console.  I have some OG playstations that I'd be ecstatic to get $40 for.

It's not for retro. Xbox One, PS4, Switch. Not sure what caused the misunderstanding from the other post.

New ad is up, extra 25% dualshock 4 or Xbox one controller trade, destiny 2 for $10, some other stuff but nothing crazy.

Even with all this talk of a buyout I'm hesitant to go nuts and trade in a bunch of stuff. As others suggested it might be worth it to cut down on my credit

Maybe some XBL, PSN and/or Nintendo credit or subs?  Probably not the whole $200 but some of it maybe?

Just an FYI, the first page isn’t being updated because the thread creator is no longer active. Make sure you reference the GS site for current trade promos, etc. I reached out to CheapyD about getting a new thread owner.
