I've been mulling over how to get this to work out.  It doesn't work on pre-orders and CAG16 doesn't stack.  Double boo!

 

One thought is to buy something with added value, like Tetris 99 (new, Switch, $30), which comes with a year of Nintendo Online ($20 MSRP), gut the game, then sell it off, used, and do whatever with the 50% off game, which might not have the case.  The half priced game would likely be an expensive $55 title.

 

Sadly it only seems to work for 1 50% off game per 1 full priced new game.

 

Hmm, the margins are still very slim.  $30 Games I would want to buy new, due to the included DLC codes (ex: MM:Legacy) are sold out.  Oh well.

Not a bad idea, I passed on considering Tetris since I figured it was one of those code-only games, but it looks like it actually comes with a cartridge. I don't subscribe to nintendo online myself, so wouldn't really find a good outlet to sell the code here. 

 

Clubhouse Games @ $40 isn't a terrible option to split the order delivery methods. (pickup + free ship)  :beer: Sadly, both new and pre-owned games are locked out of CAG16 as well as any certs once both are added to cart....

I bought Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection (new) and Luigi's Mansion 3 (pre-owned) in one order and Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition (new) and Final Fantasy VI Advance (pre-owned) in another order.

I bought 2 games under the buy one 29.99 and get a pre-owned for 50 percent off, but I forgot to link my account.

Is there a way to link my account so I can get the points after the purchase?

Not a bad sale, btw. I bought ni no Kuni for 29.99 and ys viii (both for the switch) for the price that I would have paid for ys alone. I suggest looking for switch games that are most likely not gonna drop in price as the pre-owned one for half

I just can't trust that they won't send a gutted copy of anything, slapped a sticker on it and call it new. Same goes with preowned, generic label, scratched up disc, ect. Also, they lie when they claim that you will get free shipping, if you have done any of their recent flash sales in the past, the invoice clearly shows that they charge you 5.00 to ship it, then they deduct an equal among from each game, so that if you need to return it for any reason, you are out that money.

This is one "deal" that people would be wise to stay away from.

Ys VIII is a good bet.  The money (collectability aspect) though is going to be if it comes with the insert, fold-out map, and trading cards (esp the trading cards - which are mostly missing IMO).  Falcom / NIS America Inc. had sort of a limited run of this game, for Switch.  They publicly stated they were unsure of the Switch market.  It's a game in my mind as being rare down the road.  Also a really fun Switch JRPG!  I played through it, and had a blast!

 

I bought multiples last year to find 1 pack of trading cards.  I'm OK with that.

 

The Switch version comes with all DLC items already unlocked.  Good game, for me: tied scores with XC-DE IMO .. XC2 is lower in my list, as reference.

 

Overall good game to get for $27.50+tax. /applause

I strongly agree, when they did their last sale on “new” games, I ordered about 20 and literally half of them were opened with damaged cover art and dirty discs. A couple of the “new” ones didn’t even have cases. How does a company sell a new game without the case like wtf?

I still don’t know they are legally able to get away with this. It should be considered false advertising at a minimum

Thanks.

I was literally going to buy ys through Amazon right before I saw this sale. I mainly care for the cartridge. I've been wanting to play it for a while. Ni no Kuni the same.

So Im happy.

Bought 4 weeb games since I had two 5 dollar certs I wanted to use. Probably could have waited for another Flash sale on used games but didn't want to risk them being out of stock. Curiously, these games went mysteriously out of stock during the last Flash sale (I was slow on the draw) but are back in stock now. I have my doubts folks traded in Senran Kagura, Atelier, and visual novel games since the last sale, but what do I know.

 

Really, really,  hoping for original packaging. Haven't had luck with JRPG's lately though. Its like I either get the special edition with all the extras included, or its a generic case.

I need help from some GameStop gurus
I want this transformer that would be apart of the collectible flash sale. It’s on the GameStop app, but is not on the webpage. I can’t get the 25% off $125+ to trigger on the app. Thinking I was smart, I added the item to my wish list on the app, logged into the website, and was able to see it on my list, but when I clicked on it it said webpage not found. Is this just gliched out and am I out of luck?

Hey, would someone mind explaining where you get a return label to exchange a game that doesn't work, bought it online, I prefer not to go into the store if they are even open.  

 

Do I have to call or can it be done online, I checked out as a guest but I have the order #.  Thanks ahead of time to whoever answers!

Bah I bought Ys 8 since they had the 50% off sale and I doubt it will ever go below 30. Couldn't find anything cheap I wanted so I just bit the bullet and paired it with xenoblade. I should have just grabbed ni no kuni and see if I could resell it...

I'm guessing that there's something wrong with the shipping estimates through UPS. Mine says delivery is expected tomorrow but also says that the package is still in the"Ready for UPS" stage. I really doubt it's going to be picked up tonight and make it to me tomorrow.

Are online coupons still not working and can you stack a $50 & $10?

 

I don't know if online coupons are working but I stacked two online coupons and my monthly coupon for a used purchase a month or two ago

Yeah physical copies of Ys 8 go for like $60 on Switch and $70 on PS4 used so getting a physical for $30 is a steal at this point.

 

(Only Switch listing on Amazon is for the European version. To find US for PS4 and Vita you have to go under the Vita listing.)

Hell I probably should have just bought 2 copies of Ys 8 then sold the other for a profit.

Might be accurate. I noticed my games were shipped from a Gamestop that is 20 miles away. I had the games next day. Seems like Gamestop is using local stores to fulfill orders

So my store is finally reopened to the public.
Does anyone know the in-store return policy for items shipped during the quarantine?
I know I could have shipped it back but I wanted to avoid the headache because they promised they'd adjust the return policy once stores reopened.

I was able to return my 10+ games with no problems. The guy there said that all returns get sent back to the warehouse whether the product was defective or not.

Good luck. Unfortunately for me, UPS is still waiting for my package so any hopes I had of the delivery happening today are almost thoroughly dashed.

Where did you hear this? Hiring and training new employees is not cheap.


Uhhh you're thinking about jobs where people actually get trained. I worked at drug stores where they had me train some kid for 120 minutes and then he was on his own. They're happy to let Old Margaret go because she was making 14.50 an hour having been with the company for 15 years so little Jimmy can do her job for 8.25.
