I don't get all the hate GameStop gets from trolls. They have way better Trade in Values that Best Buy and Amazon and now you get cash straight up with the same value of store credit. What's not to like?

 

Real Life Example: I got $20 for Forza Horizon 3. If I had sold it on ebay I would have end up with the same amount of money after paying Ebay fees, postage, envelope, etc. And then add time going to the post office, printing the label to ship it, posting the item on ebay, taking a pic of the game. All of this to end up getting around $20 after all the fees... or just go to GameStop get the cash right away.

Is it ok to trade in a game that is just the disc no case? If so do they take off for it? Thanks.

Shouldn’t be a factor, though I believe some on here got docked on very rare occasions for no case by the odd, nefarious GS employee.

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 wish they included Steam cards. No idea why those are omitted.

It is probably because the specific wording in the promotion is implying you would use the gift cards towards Fortnite currency.

Correct, that bonus is for specific Fortnite cards, I went in asking the same thing and it won't work on your typical Xbox/PSN currency cards.  The Fortnite packs have a specific SKU.

So I just learned a $200 lesson. I bought a used PS4 slim 500gb from offer up with a broken disc drive and won't allow me to update or I'd just do digital.

Will GameStop take it as a defective and does anyone know what the fee might be?

Thanks in advance.

I feel your pain! I had the same experience a few months ago(granted I didn’t pay $200) your best bet is to trade in as defect but might only get $75-$90 for it. Or you can sell off the controller and hang on to it in hopes of a future update fixing the disk drive issue

They do not have to be Xbox currency cards specific to fortnite, but do make sure you get a currency card and not Xbox live extension cards. Went through all this yesterday at gs, and the Xbox currency cards gave the boost and had nothing to do with fortnite.

Last time I traded in a ps4 that was defective I was hit with a $50 refurb fee. It may have changed.

Yeah I'm hopeful that I get at least $100. I see that it currently trades in at $175. I guess I'll buy a new one. Sucks but I'll never buy off OfferUp again.

Seconded. I did a $50 PSN physical card. Gave the bonus automatically. The Fortnite part of the promo isn't even mentioned in either of the print/PDF ad pages that the bonus is featured on. The only time I saw it mentioned was looking in my offers on the app. You'd think they would at least show a logo or image of Fortnite if that's what the promo was all about.

Hey old thread but I’m sure not where else to ask; where did the old GameStop thread go?



Too much g-fuel, it got destroyed. Make a new one if you want

Why they decided to nuke a whole thread over that is ridiculous.  Just delete posts and move on.  That thread was extensive and that didn't need to happen.

Funny how Blackbeard is still getting threads closed and causing chaos and he isn't even a member anymore.

Should we just make a new thread or would that just get nuked too?

I don’t think a new thread would get nuked as long as people are smart about it and don’t troll.

Were people in Twitter trolling or did people really get their accounts deleted?

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+.

Just because someone says Gamestop is shadier or seedier than something else, doesn't mean they won't go there.

In any case, turns out the math was in my favour, so Elite Pro paid for itself via points already. A happy ending. :mrgreen:
