I spent around 2 hours comparing purchase price (with tax free trade credit) and trade price plus GCU to find games that would net me at least a few pennies profit. My largest find was a $3.01 profit on BFII. I still got a ton of points and will spend that money at BB now and get even more certs there. This all should be considered when looking at profit.

I never had sheet access so I usually do a lot of math on my own, but with everything going on today, (even though I'm happy that I could move my credit), I just know that I missed some things.

I agree, I wish my state was tax free on trade credit

Where are you seeing this? They are $20 on the app.


They have a $10 off coupon that automatically applies in cart!

Don't do it. Go for Sniper Elite 4 if you're looking for a sniper type of game

Bought it on clearance at target but never played it because reviews were terrible. Sniper Elite 4 is where it's at, skip GS3.

Spent my week hoarding Redbox games, and with a buy 2 get 1 coupon I had, I turned about $150 of games into $400 Gamestop trade credit... Got myself PSVR! And a ton of Funko Pop haha. Pretty happy with the outcome.

Reminds me of Flipageddon, when I got my Vita 😍

I have an extra 10% off of a used game or a 50% extra trade credit that I can trade for one of the B2G1 codes...

Damn, they just gave you a ton of then or you went to 10 stores? The last 3 stores I visited today each gave me one, despite having a pretty large stack left (which I'm assuming they're hoarding for themselves and friends). 2 5000 points and 1 b2g1 were my draws. Not bad for free stuff. I hope this trend continues, I like the scratch offs. If every store knew what they were doing you could really wreck up some free stuff, especially if you can hit up different shifts.

goddamnit, wasn’t aware of gamestop math and wasted a $15 cert.
That’s ok, I’ll work all the harder to make them lose money now.

Had the opposite luck with 9 scratch offs.
5 x 5000 points
2 x 15000 points
1 10% off
1 50% extra credit

There’s already an x patch isn’t there? It supports HDR anyway.

Also yeah I got the 10 scratch offs, I’m cool with the manager. I do a LOT of trades and give them the majority of my business.

If you want to trade for a 50% trade in bonus for one of those B2G1s, let me know.

I get how the 50%, b2g1, etc. will work... But how are the points coupons going to work? They say it's valid for only like a week, but will you redeem it on the app and those x points only be valid during that time, or do you have a week or whatever to redeem it and then it's permanent?

What's up with the potential "tax sale" tomorrow? Anyone else hear anything about this? 

 

Store Manager at one of the stores mentioned it to me today. He said he had a flier but couldn't show it to me, they were instructed to put them out tomorrow morning.

 

It's possible it was all BS, but possible it's a legitimate sale also.

The version pictured in the ad has the DLC on disc. There is another version where the DLC is a code in the case.


The version with code in case was a GS exclusive at launch last year.

Yeah saw this while looking for the Pro day sales. http://www.playstati...ales-announced/

Apparently a refund sale with worse prices than today.
