i like how most of the games are the same for the refund sale but cost $10 more

I LOL'd when this guy told me that the tax sale would be "like pro day but even less spectacular".

Got an extra 50% trade in codes. Anyone want to trade for a B2G1?

So when do we get the b2g1 Xbox games after we buy the Xbox one X?

Thanks all. I was able to move a TON BB->GS->BB thanks to my girlfriend being willing to help out. We maxed both GCU accounts with all of the available purchases, cleaned out a GS and then maxed out the available credit movers by trading back to BB. 

 

The two BB CS were racing each other to see who could finish first, since they knew we both had the same exact set of trades. 

 

I was also able to save around $250 worth of new cases for eBay  :-

What a fucking dick!  I hate assholes who trade in discs only when they have the case.

I'm not doing this driving around buying and trading games for the employee's experience.

 

I'm in this to make money just like everyone else who's flipping games from store to store.

IDGAF about GameStop employees.  You're making it more difficult for fellow flippers who trade at places that require games to be complete.

Fuck BB. I apparently alerted the system of fraudulent activity when i tried to trade in 12 games. The cashier didn't know at first so she asked me if I traded in one of the games before since I was trading in multiple versions of the same game. I said yes like an idiot about trading in BFII because I had traded in 2 BFII PS4 and XBONE before. I didn't go over the limit so I thought I messed up somewhere. The manager allowed it as a one time exception and they said from now on only 3 at a time. She wouldn't take BFII so I'll just mail it and try my luck. I was so nervous because I thought I was going to take a huge loss. I also got three 5,000 bonus points, one 15,000 bonus points and one 10% off preowned game from the scratch offs.

Most of my glitched gift card orders shipped already ready. All my 6 orders had free two day shipping.


What glitch is this? Dead I assume?

Has anyone bought the disk version of Fortnite? Why aren't there used copies? Is there some code in the box needed for the disk to actually work or something similarly dumb?


Pretty sure the disk is useless w/o the code inside as you wouldn't have access to any of the non-Battle Royale modes.

Seems like I might be the only one or one of few just looking for some good deals to play and not flip stuff?
It's like 2 hours of driving to the nearest bb lol

Unless I got ripped off from gamestop. My disc copy never came with a code. Since nobody on my friends list play it anymore. I know of a few companies who will take it on trade. I just have to mail it.

Good times Destiny 2 X1 Madden 18 PS4 X1 Wolfenstein 2 and NBA Live 18 proved great movers. The boomerangs also helped soften the blow.

To anyone who knows what this means the punch store glitch is dead. You can no longer loop credit. Have to check if reload still works but if not bye bye credit loop.


Say no more, say no more kind sir

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.


Indeed. Without easy B2G1 frees this was more of a great churning day. If these purchases add to BBYs elite $1500 yearly countdown I'll be so happy. At least got some reward points and maybe $10-15 on every hundred moved each way. And a boat load of OW loot boxes . And the movers helped blend in the Redbox crap.

Even though my nearest Best Buy is 10 minutes away, I find the idea of flipping and also moving credit absolutely exhausting. I've only just started lurking this topic a few weeks ago, when I decided to clear out most of my gaming collection, and also upgrade my aging launch PS4 to a Pro. With all the trading and buying I was doing I went ahead and got an Elite Pro card from GS. The wildest thing I've done so far was use my B2G1 coupon to only pay $3 for Assassin's Creed Origins by also buying two Switch games and boomeranging them back to GS.

On the plus side found a gamestop that still sells retro, on the other i got three 10% scratch offs today.

They don't feel super useful to me -_- , would have enjoyed some variety.

if only i could stack these lol

Edit: also used a buy 2 get 1 today which of course didn't stack properly with the extra ten percent for today's pro day.

I don't think it's mentioned in the ad, but it looks like the Digital Deluxe version of Xcom 2 is on sale for $25 ($50 off).  That's a better deal than the base digital game for $20:

I would expect the price to go back up in about an hour.

I'll take them if your offering them. Any loot boxes are always welcome. Which system is it for?

Not my lucky day for getting a b2g1. Got 10 cards total by the end of the day...

6 of the extra 10% prewoned
2 of the 5,000 points
2 of the extra 50% trade credit.

It says redeem at site. Does it just put the coupon on your account or something? Depending on how it works I may want to try and trade my 50% for a b2g1 if possible. I can even throw in one of these extra 10% ones that I'm buried in now lol.

Anyone knows if i turn my Powerup Rewards points into GS online coupons, the pro-day discount will get taken off or will it stack??

 

PS. Decide to do last minute shopping with my PowerUp points but not sure if i'd get screwed if the price revert back to regular price.

The deluxe has been on sale twice during the weekly Xbox sales since BFriday.  It's a great price at $25.  Sold my vanilla version to GS for $15 to buy the deluxe.
