Why is the base TIV for Spiderman $25? It should be $30, right?

The guaranteed $30 promo is a promo on it's own. It doesn't mean the base value is $30.

The $30 is a promo only for Pro members.

Ok. I hope we get a good promo then otherwise I'll sell it on ebay.

My understanding is that this is just the list of games and the prices are not updated yet. Think of this as an early release of titles. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I think that's how it works.

I’ve found they are particularly tough on phone conditions compared to games, though like anything it’s probably YMMV per employee.


I could totally see them hitting me with a refurb fee, but after reading about people trading in crap condition phones for that Xbox promo, it gives me hope (though it's probably gonna be ymmv like you said).

The bumps are usually Friday - Monday, but it’s good to know what games to look out for.
Considering it’s advertised, easy to search and anything but stealthy, should we still call it stealth bump? Lol

Check your receipt

But u should have a gamepass trial depends i think the s comes with 14 day and the x comes with a month

No dice. I tried to chat with Microsoft and after they asked me for the receipt and box showing the 1 month game pass, they just told me to go back to Gamestop lol. Not worth pursuing any more at this point.

Has anyone else noticed the GameStop website giving higher Regular trade-in values than Elite Pro values?

Never trust saved trade in values. It has bugs.

Whoa! Where the hell have I been? Am I seeing this right? Godzilla for PS4 is how much now?  Wasn't it just a little while ago this was around $4.99?

Could you elaborate on this, e.g. exact name of the title, SKU, search terms that one would use to narrow down the region ("middle east"?), images/videos of unboxing, etc.?  Have never heard of this version, would be very helpful, thanks! 

 

Reminds me of the very specific version of Dead Island Collection that comes with 2 discs (2nd one for Dead Island Riptide) that was retailer-exclusive to a single German shop.  Ended up paying almost $100 for it, have only ever seen it pop up on a third party marketplace that one time.

The definitive edition is out in America and comes with everything the gold edition has. It's $60 compared to $20-$40 for the gold edition. If you have a link to this cheaper other region edition than that would be great to see.

Didnt Gamestop sell the Vanilla version of Shadow of War and give the Season Pass away for free at some point?

I had no luck after 3 calls. Twitter worked. I had to DM their customer care.

Oh, I know I can only preload it until Thursday night or sometime Friday morning/afternoon when it's available to play. The code was printed on my receipt and says "Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edtion (PRELOAD).

The only reason I ended up with digital is because physical was no longer available for pre-order. One of the employees said it was because it was close to the release date and Microsoft(?) was no longer accepting pre-orders for the physical version. Also, to be fair I had the Standard edition pre-ordered and paid in full. Then at the last minute I changed my mind and switched it over to the Ultimate edition.

Edit: chrisbravo, you're welcome. Glad I could be of help to you.


Ah OK yeah my store has a waiting list for preorders not picked up as where my store is located people don’t buy digital games.

Does anyone ever have it where their online orders don’t go through and keep getting cancelled when retrying? All my info is correct and I used the same payment methods that I did last week and that order was processed fine.

I'm guessing you had the item saved and then went back and hit "refresh estimate? That usually screws itup. The elite Price is probably correct, but the base is obviously wrong.

It's definitely there. No real trade promos.
