GameStop is offering the same cash value as credit on trade-ins until April 22nd. This applies to consoles that have recently been bumped in value making it a pretty good alternative to jumping through credit to gift card hoops.

Actually in California they are considered a pawn shop/second hand dealer. That's why they require an ID and fingerprint scan for trade ins.

Like last time, Offer not available in California and select stores. California usually gets a different promo.

California's deal is 50% extra trade credit on top of your normal pro or elite bonus.

Why don't they just make it more obvious and make it a one day promotion on 4/20 ;)

Yep, and somehow nobody was talking about it. I was just as surprised when I found out.

I like the alternate trade bonus going on right now even better: 30% pro (40% elite) bonus credit on trades toward psn/xbox/apple gift cards.

I like the 70% offer they ran a few weeks ago even better. Unless you really need the credit now, it's best to horde all your trades until the next 70% offer.

Everybody is talking about it in the gamestop thread. You really didn't need to make a thread just for this.

You're : You are
Your : Possesive, like "your post is ridiculous"

Gamestop is optional, you don't even need to walk in there doors if you don't want. Gamestop saves you time listing on ebay or craigslist, effort driving to a meetup or post office, money on gas and packing materials... You walk in, they offer money, period.

Blind Gamestop hate is stupid, I profit most the time I deal with them... I bought an iPhone last year offer Craigslist for $150 and walked in a Gamestop minutes later to get $230 credit. You're doing something wrong.

Thanks for stopping in a Gamestop thread to bash Gamestop - Great use of your time, A+.

There's a clear difference between blatant abuse of a deal and something that is being offered in earnest. Furthermore, nobody here or there can labeled under a banner as a root cause for a deal dying other than people.

but we cant pick and choose which deals they will simply take advantage of and what deals they will abuse into oblivion, so how do you decide what to share to the masses?

Also, you can absolutely pin the reduction/end of credit card post purchase price protection right on the nose of slickdealers abusing the hell out of it.

Speaking of good uses of time- being the grammar police and then using the wrong form of “there”...

So.... is it possible to have a GS topic and not have people bash each other or GS?

Probably not.

Let me guess, somebody from slickdeals saw this deal in the GS thread > reposted it to Slickdeals > you reposted the deal from slickdeals here on cag.

Does the 40% stack with the same as cash?  Also, I know the limit on trade in a rolling month is 2000, but what is the limit on cash?

Dude, I’m a English teacher with a PhD waiting approval , so if you think I care about syntax enough to fight with my iPad (auto correct), then you’re taking a very true, and very funny post WAY too seriously

Unless you work for GameStop? Florian!?

PS th post took me 18 seconds to write, and I am purposely not fixing errors, though it would take another 10 seconds

And it’s not blind hate, they are a scam , from experience

Lol GS SUX

Actually that has been my point of contention here, but I suppose I can spell it out. I was absolutely oblivious to the trade increase until seeing it make headlines in gaming news, despite how often I frequent here but couldn't care less about the GS thread because I don't shop there. So I searched for a thread since it was news to me: nothing. I checked SD for a thread: nothing. So I posted here and there about it, both of which went FP.

 

That's how it's supposed to work, contributing to the community when you feel you can and taking advantage of what the community gives back. So no circle of life here or mystery, I just share unconditionally. People take issue with that, then tough. And while we're on the subject, it's that kind of shitty attitude that drove off a LOT of great posters that contributed here and now only do so on SD.

Yes for California since they have the deal it stacks. It's 70% for elite pro and 60% for regular pro. 50% for regular membership.

Indeed. I’ve been moving a lot of stuff toward GS the past two weeks that would usually go to eBay. Some of the TIV are crazy good, and to simply walk into GS and collect cash rather than deal with the hassles of online sales? Count me in.
