In addition to the 2/4/6 for 30/40/50 trade bonus the sign also has extra $30 toward any XB1/ps4/switch console trade.

My store had it hidden behind the stack of empty console boxes when you walk in.

Pre-ordered game on 6/13 (well actually rolled over a pre-order), and got the coupon for double points today.

Doesn't sound like a 70% bump...or 50% plus 20% for elite.  Wording is really tricky on this one, lol.

Yes.. "Up to" wording usually already includes PRO / Elite boost. Is it any different this time?

It’s happening! This was in an email today, but I don’t see how it’ll stack yet. DF706566-9633-4B68-821F-176A1AC6EC44.jpeg


Hmm says get "up to" 50% extra, so I'm guessing that's 30% on top of elite so probably not the 70% we were all hoping and only 10% more than the digital currency promo, hopefully values don't tank.

Did anyone see an end date for this 10/20/30 bump on the e-mail or poster?

I pre-ordered 5 games at 2 different stores on 6/15 and 6/16 but have not received anything yet. I wonder if they are going to tank values right before the coupon goes live. Or just do it before the 50% bonus tomorrow.

The terms at the bottom of the e-mail say "Offer valid 6/18 - 7/8."

Honestly, it's a good thing that people are getting denied gift receipts and being able to return or exchange the Switches they trade it for the promotion. I send a registered letter to corporate and an e-mail awhile back along with printouts of the users on here and on another site who have been taking advantage of these promotions and either canceling the preorders or returning the games or systems they traded in for bonuses. So the company is definitely aware that people have been doing that.

To keep hope alive for a bit, the "up to 50%" could also be in reference to how many games you trade. So it could be 30/40/50 extra credit for trading 2/4/6 games and therefore go back to being 50/60/70 for Elite members. Hopefully....

Lol because peoples’ CAG usernames will tip GameStop off to their identities.

I picked up a wii at a garage sale for next to nothing that I'm going to trade in to Gamestop. Only thing wrong with it is that it's missing the door that covers the gamecube ports.

 

I just called a store and asked if that would matter and the lady said yes, they'd have to defect it and that would take $10-15 off the price. That seemed like a hefty amount considering they'd only give me $35 to begin with. Is it that much or did she just not want to have to deal with another frickin wii trade in?

Looking through the trade values, I'd get a $24 base just for the motion plus wiimote, nunchuk, sensor bar ($8 base for a sensor bar?!), and AV cable. (If they take the Wii AC adapter loose, it's not showing on the trade in page, only the Wii U one).

That's not how gamestop rolls. If it is possible to get 70% then they would say up to 70% because that sounds way better than 50%, then when people realize they aren't getting the highest percentage they get talked into a membership.

Sounds like it'll be like the promo they had back in January.   Hopefully the 4 for $20 holds tomorrow, as my local store got a batch of DS games that I'd like grab from that sale and looking to clear a few games out at the same time.

i cannot stand the phrase “up to”...will most likely disappoint. tbh 70% will not make much of a difference with these current values for the top tier switch games i am holding anyways :/
