This version of the sale is pretty bad compared to their 50% off deals.  Less of a discount and more restrictive since you would have to get games as close to $30 as possible to maximize the savings.  I’ll pass, but thanks for the heads up.

Yea, I agree this sale isn't great, but better than nothing if something you want comes in stock at this price point. With all these trade bumps once I start hitting certain levels of GS credit am more willing to flip to amazon at lower and lower margin. Still have some locked in orders to fill! 

 

It looks like this promo will last until Saturday (8-8)

The sad truth is that Burgerland is collapsing. Civil unrest, college graduates unemployed or making around $8 an hour part time, low birth rates, major drug and technology addictions, everyone treats each other like shit now, etc. The largest state is in debt and has cities like San Francisco where there everything is overpriced and it's filled with homeless people, drug addicts and criminals and is covered with literal human feces on the streets. It's really disgraceful what the leaders, both Democrats and Republicans, have done to this once great nation.

When was this country great iyo?

Tokyo Mirage Session for Switch is $39.99 used DOTD. No further discounts but this might be the best price for this outside of a buy 2 get  1 free.

If you've played the Persona games and like them, I'd say grab it.   Since Nintendo usually never price drops their 1st party games and this is the cheapest it's been.

Tokyo mirage is too expensive still. Especially since it most likely doesn't include the case. Was looking forward to it. Oh well. Final fantasy x/X2 it is - with my trade credit

Pretty sad that we can't use our $5 monthly certificate on deals of the day.  What's worse is that the employees sell people on buying it by saying it's good on "everything"

That's why I let mine expire. What good is $5 off something that you can get cheaper somewhere else, in far better condition

$9 is an absolutely liveable wage in low income areas and states. I agree that in higher priced areas (CA, NY) it should be $15, but people in say WV or ND should absolutely not make the same. They don't need it. If that was the case, everyone would move to those areas.

Basic economics man.


Yikes. There is so much wrong with this. Basic economics? Where did you get your economics degree because this fails basic arithmetic?

Idk what is going on in this thread...but I do have a PUR related question. Apologies if this was covered, I had to wade through the mess. But how long has it been impossible to get certs in the app? All values show as “sold out”

Thus far, the $5 cert can still be used for digital currency.  Although that requires an open store, and the willingness to go inside a GS (don't trust their website even if that was an option).  My local stores require me to purchase a $10 code to use the monthly cert, but, oh well.

 

The new plan is not nearly as good as it used to be, but sadly you still need it to maximize trading / flipping with GS, if thats your thing.  IIRC it can still be purchased for 15k points, which accumulate anyways with trades.

Several months, but you can get certs on the website. Lots of people have had trouble with redeeming the online certs, but in store ones work.

So it looks like Anthem is on sale for $4.99 for the DOTD today. I keep hearing things about it being an unfinished game but is it worth $5 at this point?

For $5 there is some fun to be had no question

I'm curious what the ratio of posts about deals to posts about how crappy GameStop is as a company (or posts defending them) are. Can't we just accept that they are a crappy company doomed for failure, but they have pretty good deals sometimes if you are okay with gambling on the condition of your items and lack of cases?

The fact that people bitch about them but do so in this thread basically tells me they still likely buy from GS. It verifies what you said. 

 

As for the derailment, I was only semi-serious. I'm often part of the problem, and TBH, I don't mind it. Not like there's much going on for the rest of CAG outside of the deals section.

I hope GameStop survives and thrives (although it is obvious it won't). Where else can I buy a game and resell it back for double on the same week?

I love GameStop, actually

I've always been able to use my cert for a $5 XB code in store. I have heard the minimum for eshop is $10 but I don't have first hand experience.

I'll trash talk GS all day and buy from this beautiful company.

The trade value this week makes no sense. $19.25 for new super Mario Bros Wii??? Sure ok works for me.

Gaming is a cruel market. And with eBay and marketplace it makes zero sense to run any gaming store.

The bump is dead. Long live the bump.

 

All bumped values appear to have just dropped this morning.
