What games did you actually get for the 4/$10 deal for people to be buying 50 of them. All the ones I saw online were crap. Curious cause a lot of them would end up being cheap coasters.

check the shipping label. One package I got yesterday was a bubble mailer with the plastic sleeve on the front. The shipping label was inside and on the back of the shipping label was the invoice.

The super-low 4/$10 deal online made me jump on a few games, despite my less than stellar holiday time experience with Gamestop.com. 

 

This time, however, Gamestop certainly seems to have at least substantially improved its processing and notifications.  After the cluster#$@@ that was the holiday time (and a few other terrible experiences), this time thus far I'm happy to see Gamestop is shipping the items rather quickly.

 

Few to any of these come with cases or instructions, but that's absolutely fine with me so long as the game plays.  At these prices, I'm not picky about completeness.  These are essentially games I'm remotely curious to try out and would rather have a copy now before they generally become hard to find or sell on eBay in the $5-10, which is frankly just too much for any one of them.

I know GS GC > AZ GC doesn't work anymore but does anyone know if GS GC > Southwest GC still works?

Paid for my flight to Portland, OR all with Gamestop trade credit .

Be aware that southwest.com only allows 3 gc per transaction (as of fall of 2017). I think it also mentions that in the T&C on the reverse of the gift card. I bought 4 x $100 gc. Would have purchased fewer cards with larger amounts had I known before hand. I was just trying to not raise any flags when I bought them. I did figure out a way to get it to work out in my case. Just something to be aware of.

Copy and paste:

 

Elite Beat Agents , Pilotwings Resort - 3DS , inFAMOUS 2 , Code Name STEAM , Evolve , Dragonball Z: Legacy of Goku , Sin & Punishment: Star Success , Ragnarok Odyssey

Zone of the Enders HD Collecti , Condemned 2: Bloodshot , The Last of Us , L.A. Noire , Valkyria Chronicles , Vanquish , Crackdown , The Walking Dead: Survival Ins , Neverdead , Xbox 360 Triple Pack , Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part , Way of the Samurai 3

 

Granted about half were returned because of issues, but if you found all of these to be crap, your standards are too high.

Dump your current cell carrier, get theirs, and pay with credit.

Buy fast food gift cards, PSN/eshop credit, and reserve games you might want to buy in the future?

Every good plan needs an exit strategy.

3 options are below. Not gonna bother to tell you about option 4 where you save your tic for later.

Great Post

agree.  I do #1 extensively to buy clothes, Starbucks and previously Amazon.

 

In addition, #4:

 

Keep an eye out for at least 1:1 movers via trade in bonuses.  Amazon and Best Buy are viable options but in lower $ amounts and it's much more work than just pulling a blank GC off the shelf.

 

I just moved about $500 over to BB once the GS GC/Amazon GC loophole closed via Pro Day offers.  Makes GS credit less attractive to me now.  Still have about $4k sitting on 5 cards that I want to move about half.  Waited too long to make the move to Amazon but it has come back before so I'll keep trying periodically.

My copy of Remember Me was not CIB. It was disk only. I was able to do 3 can swaps so far. But most local game stops are dried up. Also looks like a lot of theses games have been removed from online purchase completely. Not sure if that's permanent though.

Question for anyone who has used their reward points to get the elite pro membership.

 

So I already have a pro membership that expires in June, if I redeem points for the elite pro membership, I'm assuming it takes effect immediately and then a year from when I redeem is when it reverts back to pro for the remaining months?

That reminds me of my local guy who sold PUR memberships to people on Pro Day who wanted GTA 5. The game's been on sale on and off for awhile, but people saw a sale and thought it was a great time to buy it.

They will cash out your remaining months of pro. You can take that balance and apply it to the $30 cost of an elite membership. As of this posting you have 4 months or 1/3 of a year left which means you get 1/3 back from your pro membership - $5. You can apply that towards the cost of your elite membership $30 - $5 = $25. You can pay the $25 however you like - cash, credit or debit card, or even tic.

I think the following may also work. They cash you out for you $5, you then sign up for elite with 30,000 points. Admittedly I'm not sure if you can do an initial sign up with points or only renewals with points.

You will be prorated the rest of your pro and get cash back. So you will get about $5 back and when your elite expires you can renew for elite or pro.
