If this is frowned upon I apologize but I have a $200 GS gift card that I want to use on an XSS. But if I can get it somewhere else, I might consider it.


Then I’d be stuck with the $200 gift card. Other than spending it over time on games (I honestly could do that this year) is there any way to convert it to cash? My only idea would be to buy a large item used, then return it with satisfaction guarantee, but would they then put on a gift card instead of cash/credit card?

It’s a first world problem for sure any advice is appreciated.

Does AmazonSmile still work? If it does you can have it converted into Amazon Credit.

See if anyone wants EShop/PSN/Xbox credit and offer a 10% discount. I sold a bunch of EShop this way early last year using credit to fund the cards.

I beat this recently from the PSN sale and must've missed when it first came out. Can't believe it's already OOP. The story reminds me of Virtue's Last Reward.

Was made by the same guy from it need to get to playing it eventually

If you buy something in store it will show your method of payment, but if you buy something online...

Also quite dependent on the store manager you try to convert currencies via return for. Some will not allow you to put return funds on anyting other than a gift card while others will just just try to process you quickly and re-class your return as a "no-reciept" and let you pick what method you want the refund in. 

 

Overall, not really worth the risk of getting account flagged, so I'd just use it like normal over time.  :beer:

 

There might be a small list of items you can buy with GC that you can't with trade-credit, but not sure it's that interesting anymore?

Same here. Virtue's Last Reward may be one of my favorite gaming experiences of all time but I found the sequel to be so disappointing that I completely ignored everything about Somnium Files. I'm ready to love again, Uchikoshi.

Definitely don't miss it. So many twists and turns. I shelled out $100 for a sealed collectors edition (in addition to what I paid for it during the PSN sale) because I have a feeling that the price is only going to get more expensive. A-set, you bet!

 

EDIT: For those of you who have played through it already and want more content, their YouTube channel has a few let's plays and other videos with Tesa and other characters interacting throughout. Their interactions bring out just as much life in the characters as they do in game:

As an update to this, I called GS this morning... after a fairly short hold (28 minutes), they told me, yes, there was a mistake in the price charged and that if I update my payment method, it would only charge me the different between what I already paid with the giftcard and what the end total was, meaning 30 cents would show up on my credit card. 

 

Well just now, I got a notice from my credit card of a pending charge for the full amount. And my giftcard balance is still $0. Nice. 

 

I'm holding out hope that once the charge goes through, my giftcard is refunded. But I'm guessing I can expect more calls to CS. 

Did you ever get your money? I am fighting the same issue.

So I just got a notice that the digital version of GI is available. Does anyone know when the physical version comes out? I like to read it on the throne.

I hope for stealth bump, but suspect stealth dump.

Hopefully the bump will be good. Anyone know what titles qualify for the +30%? Flyer shows Harvest Moon, Bravely Default II, and Persona 5 Strikers... anything else?  :shock:

This doesn't look like a string that's been assigned. a) It doesn't come up as suggested in the search, b) there's nothing recent among the games (doom eternal, luigi's mansion are the most recent when you sort) c) mwt strings don't usually get assigned until thursday before the bump d) you can get an equivalent list with the same number of results just by adding random numbers to mwt. 

 

Last month mwt21421 showed up unexpectedly on the 13th but didn't become active until the 19th. It was odd timing for both since 2/14 was a Sunday and the 19th wasn't the last Friday of the month.

Previous weeks' flyers showed Returnal for PS5 (didn't work) and last week Prince of Persia Remake (no confirmation if it worked for anyone.)

Nope... I think someone said 5 business days so I still have 2 more days.

So it's 175 plus extra 50 for one x and Ps4 pro now?

If so, think it's worth dumping a Spiderman pro and a gears 5 one x? Or are those still rare/valuable?

I have 150000 points in reward points .. it is difficult to spend in store for me. Can I purchase some toys online paid by my credit card first and then return them instore and repurchase with my $50 reward certificates by redeeming 50000 points ?

It is so frustrating that GameStop still haven’t fixed the online system for letting us redeem online coupon and use it online.::

I sold my regular ps4 pro a week ago for $260 without controllers. Take that for what it's worth.

Ps4 pros are fetching $275-$300 easy around me. Should be easy to sell as they are limited edition. I think the gears one x is the best looking xbox.

Based on my 6 months of experience with the physical magazine, it’s usually 3rd or 4th week of the month.

Question regarding pay X receive gift card X used games deal. Can gift cards be earned on separate orders? And if so can the gift cards be combined towards a purchase later on?

Please don’t trade either of those into GameStop unless for some reason you value trade credit over cash. You can easily get a minimum of $250-$300 each for those

I second this. I sold my Cyberpunk XB1X (codes "redeemed" but controller and HDMI cable unused) for $350 used but complete locally in December.

It looks like I need 80$ or so to qualify for free shipping right now. Is there a better way?

I can't get the fucking reward certificate purchase to go through. Definitely got the points. Tried desktop and app. Tried the online only one and the regular one.

 

Can either those or the monthly $5 be used on the eshop money?

The monthly coupon should work
