Minimum they sell is $10 PSN cards. It's what I do every month. The Pro membership is actually a great value. I also got 10,000 ($10) in points for renewing my membership.

I've cashed in  4 or 5 different 5 dollar monthly credits for 5 bucks in Nintendo Eshop cash.

When you use the $5 certificate in store, they will give you a physical $5 gift card or they send you the code to your email?

xbox and eshop, yes.  psn minimum is 10.

They have physical $5 gift card and $10 gift card at store? or they sell you the digital currency like a code to your email when you meet the agent?

 

Thank you.

Actually, you can buy a $5 Xbox Live code at the register.  They can print it on the receipt for you.  That way, you can use your $5 coupon, and no money actually has to change hands.  It also makes their usual spiel to try to upsell you preorders, warranties, and everything but the kitchen sink before the transaction ends go a lot faster.  :applause:

Nintendo Gamestop owes me like $35 from some wiiu games that didn't work that got back to their warehouse in late Dec.   I'm never gonna get that money, am I?

 

But on the other hand, they sent me an extra copy of links and kirby for switch.  

 

I think that's an even trade.  Kinda.  

You have to call customer service.  They can check that it was received and see if you were refunded.  They will then issue the refund.  If you paid with GC, you may be able to get a digital gift card or they will mail it to you.  I had one offer me the digital gift card for the first time yesterday, but I had paid with a credit card so I didn't try it.

Anyone on the GME ride? More profitable than flipping PS5s at this point.

I regret getting the receipt codes as they are stuck in my digital locker forever! I'd rather spend the extra 5 trade credit to get a $10 and throw it away. I am terrible for the environment.

Lol wow, wish I had bought more at $3.  :bomb:

Luckiest/smartest thing I did in March/April was buy a few options of $GME, loving it.

Does Valhalla on XBox get the $10 bump or $5 bump?

Does anybody know what Cyberpunks TIV is for PS4 or if they’re even taking it in? Didn’t experience many glitches while playing, I just don’t really care for the game.

where did you buy it? most places are/were taking returns even if opened so that may be a better route than just getting $25/30 from a trade...

No position in GME --

 

but I am smiling almost ear-to-ear because this stock has been bad-mouthed by all those short-sellers, and haters on Youtube, and elsewhere for months...

 

Some of criticism has merit, but there are other retail options, so continued bashing and bad-mouthing made it clear there was some agenda; almost a vendetta against Gamestop.

 

Now those people that did that, and bet against it got CRUSHED, and lost tons of money no doubt

 

GME CEOs just left their offices and can be seen jumping up and clapping their feet together in joy

I have a question. I have redeemed $10 in store certificates and used a for a product $20. If I return that item, will they refund 10000 points to me ? Thank you.

don't worry, it's going back to $3 in 12-24 months, no way GME should be value the same as of June 2007.

Hopefully the board changes means that the one who had them put all the used game cases behind the counter is gone.   I know that was the one thing customers hated during the holidays and employees wanted changed with the next store reset.   As it's a pain to wait in the long lines and find out what the store has in stock for most.

The stock went up because of getting new board members and online sales were up? Total holiday sales were down 4.8%. No announced plan for increased profitability, new offering or improved customer experience, just hope.

They give you 10000 points ...basically it is only $5 per year

I sold the stock at $16 because of how broken the app is. I got some good gettin - but until they can get the basic execution of redeeming a coupon online I’m out like Cuban. I missed the short squeeze but a bird in the hand and all.

Regardless, competition is good for us CAGs. No one should want them to go out of business - just get their stuff together and be a legitimate competitor that forces other retailers to compete for our business.

My wife went to GameStop to exchange the nba 2k21 game from the ps5 bundle with call of duty Cold War. The agent gave her a resealed copy of the PS5 call of duty....it looks like used like someone traded in the game and GameStop resealed it and sell it again. did anyone have experience about that ? I want to go to that GameStop tomorrow to exchange a sealed copy...

Here are the photos.

Looks like the way they used to do their "new" display copies before switching to just the circle sticker.

They put circle sticker and then reseal it....back in the day they just put circle sticker on the new game without that resealing....

In my area they used to have these plastic sleeves to reseal them back before they used the circles.

Those plastic sleeves looks so cheap because the surface is not even. In my local GameStop, it seems they used both plastic sleeves and circle stickers now. I haven’t gone to GameStop to purchase games for a long time...I cannot imagine they are still selling resealed the game as brand new. I hope I could exchange another one tomorrow .
