One of the reasons i usually use my points for a renewal to get a b2g1 coupon or to get coupons off new stuff cause that hurts them. Newly released game today? Heres a 50 dollar off coupon. Byeee (i dont actually do this)


Or even better: use it for Nintendo, PS4 or Xbox credit so they don’t get it at all.

I don’t get the GS hate, anyone that is in this thread has likely benefited a lot from their trade promos. Do you get some asshat employees from time to time? Sure, just like any other place. But at the end of the day, they run enough promos that it makes them the best place in town to trade and do business with. I’ve barely spent any of my actual money on gaming since I started trading with them and I won’t have to for awhile to come. That’s pretty awesome in my book.

Was able to get $46 each for the Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda Botw & Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with the $10 bonus coupon. Traded in Fire Emblem Warriors also and that was $41 till I put $5 towards a pre-order of Ni no Kuni 2 and went up to $42 lol

***50% extra credit on a future trade of nintendo switch games with the purchase of any product in this flyer***

That's listed on the flyer I grabbed at gamestop today. Has-been heroes is $9.99 so I'm going to grab a copy of that just for the promo.


I see no mention of this anywhere in ad

That's how most stores do this kind of promotion in my experience. Stores that do it a different way are usually the outliers. A lot of people on CAG abuse GS(myself included), but they frequently have the best trade promos of anyone around. Without them the trade/flip economy would be nothing. Also, getting rewarded on top of easy flipping/trading with PUR points/certs is a goldmine. If Bestbuy didn't have such a great system with GCU I'd use GS almost exclusively

 

Thing is, you would only be able to get these certs if you are a PUR member, so what they are essentially doing is reducing the actual value of your PUR discount benefit.  Shady shit

Gamestop does some shady things, but having the option to buy into a reward service is not one of them.

I agree that is not ideal and is not in our favor. But they're not lying to us about how it works.

If the way certs are applied is disturbing, then you should be complaining about PUR elite too because it reduces the purchase price by an additional 10%, which means elite doesn't earn 50% more points than pro. Instead they earn 33% more.

Crying about rewards systems that pay you 2% to 3% is rediculous.

Power up rewards points are the equivalent of skee ball tickets at the arcade. If you're trying to buy the big screen TV with skee ball tickets you're getting hosed. Don't get me wrong, a bonus is a bonus.

And it's not shady if we know about. I'd agree it's not ideal. You just have to know how and when to use points/certs.

Shady is when they sign you up for the X1X notification list w/o permissio. Or when employees just tack on disc protection without asking.

Anyone had any other scratch offs apply to their account yet? I redeemed probably 40k in points, a B2G1, 50^m% boost and 10% extra off but only 2x 5000 points have posted.

I've also only had 2x 5,000 points points apply even though I submitted more.

So the $10 coupon works on more then 1 title that qualifies?

Find you a girl that can do that too.

No such luck. But mine spent Valentine's day waiting for the plumber to fix the kitchen sink. Expensive day and we didn't even go to dinner.

Yeah you just have to trade them in all at once since the coupon is one time use only.

I don't recall seeing this anywhere in the past few pages but are there any good B2G1 Xbox One games to move to Best Buy?

Is there a reason CAG16 doesn't stack with my Elite discount on pre-owned games, or is it just a glitch?

Lol, refer to the old GS thread if you're truly interested. But GS stopped it from working and said it will no longer stack. It's not a glitch, it's intentional.

I just used some points to renew my membership.  Has that coupon for b2g1 been knocked down to one set, or can you still use it for say b6g3?

Does anyone know which other games qualify for the extra $10 coupon? Curious to see if Mario + Rabbids is part of it. I've got the SKUs, but typing them in the Gamestop website yields nothing...

Splatoon 2, Pokken DX, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 1-2 Switch, and Arms

No where in that flyer did it say one day only, says through the 10th unless otherwise noted, and in that GameStop Twitter pic, there's no date listed under that 50-% mention.

The flyer says "with purchase of any product featured in this flyer", but I'm curious if the eShop cards in the flyer would count. Probably not...

Did you renew an elite membership with the coupon? I couldn't do it before. Mine expires in sept. I'd do it now just for the coupon though.

I called just now and they cannot confirm anything about the 50% bonus coupon.  Can anyone confirm it is still working?
