Has anyone seen any evidence to suggest the Gamestop inventory checker is currently doing the -1 thing?

Yes.

I finally went in today to pick up my Super Mario 3D World/Bowser's Fury Switch game pre-order after all of the snow we've had lately.

 

I added pre-owned copies of Galak-Z/Skulls of the Shogun and Snack World, and for some reason, Snack World rang up for $10.49.  I'm not sure if there was some sort of additional promo that got added into the transaction. 

 

I just went with it since the Snack World game is very difficult to find in my area new or used.

Its the 30% off a pre-owned title promo for buying a new title over $30

Anybody know if GameStop would take a trade-in of my PS4 Pro with a 2TB hdd? I can’t find the original 1TB I took out of it.

 

 

Would Gamestop accept a base PS4 with a 2TB as the 500GB? I chucked' the OEM HD years ago. 

I havent had any problem trading systems with bigger/better HDs that were in good working order, I just keep my mouth shut and let the gs guys do their whole check thing.

Should I pay for the premium shipping in hopes of my order not sitting around in a distribution center for months or would that even matter?

Gamestop doesn't use distros for order fulfillment.  Anything that isn't brand new or backlogged pre-order is shipped from stores.

That's pretty much the apporaxh you have to take with any transaction at GS. Say nothing, as they get confused and you end up just shooting yourself in the foot otherwise.

Not like they're going to think you tried ripping them off, by including a bigger HDD.

All from GameStop. Persona Q has a few scratches, but pretty good condition.

I know I'm very late to this... But do these still pop up randomly on GS? I chose not to purchase the Hyrule 3DSXL edition and the Hyrule 2DSXL edition. I have the Ocarina of Time OG, ALBW XL, and MM n3DSXL. Kinda regret not getting them as im a huge fanboy :/

It was deactivated shortly before President's day weekend sale, so hopefully it'll be back soon.

So I have a question. I've noticed GS's in store pickup option is getting shittier and shittier. These past couple weeks, I've tried searching for a Deal of the Day game on their website to pickup in store and the website will tell me OOS within 15 and even 30 miles around me. I'll then go to my closest GS and they'll have a couple copies of the exact same game but they can't price match so I end up having to order it in store, ship it to myself, pay the 4 or 5 dollar shipping and wait a couple days even though they have it right in front of me. And for some reason they don't ship to store anymore. Has this always been this shitty or is this new?

I’ve been away from this site for a while now, have there been any good flip opportunities lately? Just wondering if that was still a thing nowadays. I’m sad at how much new stuff I’ve missed but with life not letting me collect recently, that’s how it is.

Last bigger restock was around Feb 12 for the 3ds systems, haven't seen them popup since then. Some regular 2ds systems have popped up since then, but not much.

I grabbed a hyrule gold n3ds xl a couple weeks back.  Arrived in average cosmetic condition but with TN screens.  I bought it to play with the expectation of better screens, so I'm likely just going to return instore.  If someone here wants it instead for cost + shipping, just let me know (must have positive cag feedback). Edit: Pending to a cag.

 

They also packed in a generic usb to 3ds charge cable.  First time I've seen something different from the oem wall plug.    Probably scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point.

The store I went to a few days ago said yes. Wouldn't hurt to go in a store and ask.

Yes, I've been doing it recently. Works the same as other console currencies.  The steam cards can be difficult to find if you're looking for a particular $ amount, though.

Not really. I’m lucky to make $10 profit a game and those are usually purchased online from auction sites. The Pro membership with $5 monthly credit has been a good deal if you are comfortable going in store as they can be used on digital credit.

Have not seen variable Steam cards in a LONG time. Makes me sad sense that was the best thing imo to use the monthly $5 coupon on.

My closest store is closing down, shame I didn't notice until almost everything was gone. It was huge and the space wasn't utilized well so I presume the rent just ended up too high compared to sales. I didn't see it on the store closings blog but it's on Sand Lake Road/John Young Parkway in Orlando FL. But again, there's really nothing left to pick through.
