Did anyone trade one of the “This Week’s Top Trade Value” games last week or today? I would like to trade Doom Eternal (if I can find a local store accepting trades), but app and website show it for $20, not 30. Is it a promotion that rings up in store?

Doom Eternal and Final Fantasy 7 Remake were both trading in for $20 today. Maybe the values will turn over on Monday?

Pro Day this Saturday. Hoping Figpins, statues and Totaku’s get huge discounts.

All the not 2020 release Totaku's are already $5, or I assume you mean the 2020 releases?

The thing is with the $10 off at Walmart, I think eventually that's going to go away once GameStop is out of the picture. I honestly can't believe they've been able to do this for a full year already.

I really don't think walmart cares about what gamestop is doing at all. The game discount at walmart is there to increase in store foot traffic or else they'd offer the discount on their website as well.

But it also affects the price on Amazon and at some point I would think the big 3 plus the publishers will get pissed off enough to do something. It stops people from buying day 1 digital if they can get a physical copy for up to $10 less as even rural/small towns/cities (assuming they have broadband access) have a Walmart.

If (as a pro member) I can get $39.00 in TIC for Doom Eternal (assuming base price $30 and then 30% on top of that) then I am all in on that deal.

 

Anybody have any luck today regarding this?  Ad shows a pic of the XB1 version, but hopefully that doesn't matter...

For that big flash sale two weeks ago I ordered 48 games on the website and another 17 in store. I've gotten everything except two copies of Lego Marvel Avengers for Vita that got a tracking number but still havent gone anywhere.  As for cases, none of the 3DS games had cases, the only Vita game that had a real case was a new, sealed Code: realize I got like someone else posted. For PS3 most of the games had cases and a couple also had manuals, but I got two very scratched up loose copies of Incredible hulk.  Also both my Blade Strangers for Switch were loose, but I was able to get a manual for one at a store. All my PS4 and XBOX One games were complete, but UPS absolutely stomped on one of my packages so my CTR and Tokyo Ghoul for PS4 came with badly broken cases. My 2 x Pokemon Blue and 2 Links Awakening for Gaemboy were both authentic with working batteries! 

Assuming I get the Marvel Avengers at some point, I will be happy overall. I got some great deals and I accounted for getting loose games when I decided what to order so getting cases at all was a pleasant surprise.

Sounds pretty good. I was a bit envious when the other poster posted the complete copies of Blade Strangers. If most get it cart-only, I'm glad I didn't order it.

Correct, those $10-$15 figures.

Pro Day(ve) is this Saturday according to the ad for whatever it's worth.

 

There is another shirt deal for Saturday (PRO DAY) - DOTD627.

 

Honestly not much else I can see.  One code I can't attribute to a date because of the cluster mess that they have stuff stored in, is ATPLAYHEADSETS.  But GS has been dumping headsets this week, so it might be trivial.

 

Other specific codes this week are DOTD624, and DOTD625.  No other days.  Those days only.

 

/OP-ED

GS really should have invested in shirts relating to Animal Crossing, XC, etc.  They over-bought piles of shirts they can't sell, evident by all the shirt sales they have been having in the past 2 weeks.  A lot of ho-hum franchises.  Oops!

/end-OP-ED

 

With regard to Pro-Days, it seems like it might be a banner flash sale or ... just maybe .. a +% bonus to trade.  Likely not a +5 trade - they don't seem to want to pay for anything lately.  1 day to trade is kind of shitty though, but who knows.  I'll take a +$5 trade in a heartbeat though!

 

Banners are kept privileged on GS home logon servers, via specific users.  I don't want em that bad.

 

PS - I got a message from Tattler4 - it showed up in my inbox, but the content was deleted and erased.  Only the sender's name remained ... I bet it was juicy.   Boo :(

You would have to trade in towards TLoU2 right to get the 30% boost?

The Tattler ones generally criticize you for allegedly taking advantage of whichever sale or glitch occurred recently. The Dave ones are a combination of self-congratulations, mention of some current deal which he takes credit for, and then thanking you for being a presumptive pro member.

Dude is jekyl and hydave, seriously.

How many of you are still waiting for games from the flash sale a couple weeks back? Anything retro and a couple Switch games were marked as shipped right away, but have had no movement. The tracking info is also for USPS as opposed to the UPS I typically get.

I had a hassle returning a game I ordered on DOTD. Took a month and a half to get it from the time of order and the associates took one look at the date and wanted to deny it. No clue what's going on with their shipping because I had another game in the order that came almost immediately.

Some of the stuff is coming from the warehouse in texas and that seems to make things take longer than the games at individual storefronts.

So, fun times with Gamestop. Ordered a Labo kit and picked it up in store, no problem. when I get home i noticed it has already been opened, it's missing some parts, and the cartridge is missing!!

 

Advice? just go back to store tomorrow and ask for an exchange?

Wolfenstein 2 on PS4/XB1 no longer shows up in the app as tradable, only on Switch.

They must have just changed it, cause the PS4 version was showing up for me in the app for $5 trade credit on Friday when I was in-store. Despite that, they wouldn't let me trade it in towards TLOU2 on release day, not for 20% extra ($6) or the regular $5.

I got the Toki Retro Collector Switch pack in a local store today for $15.99 - $5.00 pro certificate... about $11 for the mini cabinet seems almost worth it.

I have 3 games in limbo just like that, not really worried because they're not rare, I just dont want the headache if the end up not shipping.

Fingers crossed that I can find a place taking trade ins. Last week only about three stores in my county were open at all and none were taking trades, but some of our retail restrictions were eased over the weekend and a few new stores opened. I've been waiting for like two months to trade Doom Eternal so this would really be perfect timing.

Same.  I have one order from almost 2 weeks ago that's been sitting as "Just Shipped" the whole time, meanwhile I placed a Funko Pop order a day or two later and that was delivered within a few days.  The first order isn't important, I just get worried when a shipment just sits in one status for more than a few days, let almost 2 weeks.

Im waiting on a 24 game order. 15 were shipped within a day or 2. The last 9, were from a warehouse, same tracking for all, saying just shipped for 2 weeks now. Customer service said to wait as they see activity on their end, but I still see just shipped for 2 weeks now. I also had to get a refund for Will a wonderful world ps4, as it seems to be missing from their website, along with Summon night 6 ps4, and Monster boy ps4, switch. Strangely those games still pull up in the app, along with used sinking city ps4 xbone, that dont show on the website.

While you are correct, I can't guarantee that method, as GS lists dozen(s) of games on a specific date, when only several actually go live.
