Wow, I'm quite pleased with my pre-owned order. Received original boxes for Nioh 2, Dreams, Death Stranding, Days Gone, and Fifa 19. Some had inserts and the stickers came off without leaving residue! Only The Surge, Assassin's Creed Rebel Collection (Switch), and Dragon's Dogma (Switch) came in generic cases. Stellar overall getting the deal of the day discounts + 50% off $100!

Ordered the DotD Pokemon card box and Shining Refrain Switch yesterday and was shocked to see it came today. I was not shocked that GameStop once again screwed up, got this instead of Refrain:

I can see how the mix-up happened. "Forza" sounds like "Force" when said by a native Japanese speaker.

That seems like the kind of sterling logic GameStop’s fulfillment department would use :) . The one bright side is it’s actually a great game and provided it works properly easily worth the $12.99

Welp, guess I'm not placing an order. I really shouldn't be surprised at them changing terms in the middle of a sale.

Man I knew this was going to happen so I pulled the trigger the other day.  GS has been known to pull these kinds of tricks recently during these flash sales...

Recently ordered Ghostbusters Remastered for Switch and Smash Bros Ultimate was inside the case 😊

Yeah I really should have known better and placed my order yesterday. On top of them changing the sale, one of the games I really wanted isn't available anymore. Note for future reference: Gamestop will 180 a sale at any time.

Just wait until the day after the sale and anything not available suddenly comes back in stock. That always sucks. Lol

Yeah odd how you go look at games and sort them by price (don’t get me started on GameStop’s price range filtering...) and all the retro games $29.99 or below are suddenly all out of stock...

I loved this trade promotion.  Netted enough for 2 first party NS Games, between credit and points.  I hope they do this again soon!

 

ps - not everything was all about Doom 3 and other sale games.

Dotd bogo on wii games. It's a nice deal, just sucks that none of them seem to have stock online and I haven't seen a wii game in an actual gamestop in years

Yes, it is. There's also some fluctuation with values. Doom Eternal tanked from 20 Base to 13, but a few of my games went up in value by a dollar or two, as well.

Of course it did...my Doom’s are coming in today...ugh

Now debating trading them in, at least not losing anything, or waiting to see if it goes back up...

I would wait. It has had $30 base on more than one occasion lately and there are likely to be $5 bonuses for PS4/XB1 sooner than later. Even if it had stayed at 20, I don’t know that it would have been worth trading yet.

To add to what the poster below you said the game is also on sale for $30 currently so I think it will reach back to at least $20 base for the next stealth bump when it isn’t on sale.

Is this deal available in stores? I know most if not all other dotd sales are online only.

I spot checked a few games.  It also looks like most of the cheaper Lego Switch games got stealth bumped to $11 base, $17.10 with bonuses.

Isn't 30% the best bonus available now? 10% Pro + 20% for preordering Madden or Avengers = $14.30 for an $11 base game.

I ordered RE2, Doom Eternal, Nioh 2, Death Stranding, Borderlands 3, Borderlands 1 remastered, and Control (before they announced that the original edition wouldn't have the PS5 upgrade) with the 50% off promo. All of them came today in complete and nearly new condition.
