i am a little bit dense, so could someone tell me the difference between these 2 mario rc karts https://www.gamestop...l?condition=New and https://www.gamestop...l?condition=New I mean, it looks like they took away the mario kart 8 branding to just mario branding and went from $40 to $100. I ask because I found 2 of these in my basement and I was trying to see what they were worth.

Mini vs XL.

I guess that it is, comparing the size next to the controller, it doesnt seem like it is that much bigger though.

It’s all relative. They probably just used pinch and zoom to make it look bigger. Since it’s not out until July there probably isn’t an actual model for it.

$20 gift card with purchase of a new Switch Lite.


Damn $5 cheaper and it would have matched the trade in value.

Are any +20% trade promos still working today? I was waiting to trade in some bumped titles for a possible new promo. Instead i think there may now be no promos at all.

Same... I was hoping Pokemon Snap / Monster Hunter Rise would be eligible for +20% this week. May just wait for the next +5.  :oldman:

My GameStop has an extra 10% on trade-ins if you bring the games in a GameStop bag. Not sure if it stacks with pre-orders. The GameStop bag is only $1.

Works for me. I got some games to dump later on today before the trade boost ends.

30% isn't live toward Rise in my store. Cashier had no idea what I was referring too when it came to a trade bonus.

Yea, looks like I'll have to go back tomorrow. The cashier was new, so I didn't press it to hard. Had nearly $100 in credit, so I'd like that bonus.

Any luck getting the trade bump with Outriders or Rise?

You can’t buy digital currency with the $50 in store coupons you get from redeeming power up points right? I have a $50 coupon expiring at end of March and I’m struggling to find stuff to use it on

You're right, but some GameStop employees are morons and will try to say 7 days like you're taking the money from their own pockets, and give you the "I'll make an exception this one time" garbage like it's not their actual policy to begin with. 

 

Then again, I've also had some employees try to deny me a return because "we can't accept unopened games" despite clearly being a return and not a trade.

Rise was a no-go, Outriders worked though.

I was able to last month when I traded in games towards Super Mario 3D World.

 

I had no idea it was even a thing - the employee that was handling my trades said that they were a 'test store' for the 10% bag bonus and let me stack the promotions.
I did have to pay 99¢ for the reusable bag, but I got an extra ~$15 in trade credit so it was definitely worth it!

Buy a GameStop bag for $1, bring in your game trades in the bag to store. Then when they do the tradein, they will manually bump of the trade amount by 10%.

 

My local stores here in MN have been doing it for the last several weeks. They had mentioned that it was due to them getting rid of plastic bags at stores or something. Not really sure if it applies to all stores or only certain districts.

Outriders will be on game pass day 1. I’ll probably still preorder it for the trade bonus and then move it over to Mario Golf.

They've been trying to sneak them onto receipts here, but no mention of a 10% trade bonus.  I assume that if my district were offering it, they would use that as the tactic to sell the bags instead

I haven't heard anything in So Cal about that 10% bump, hope it happens here though.

Went back today to get that bonus added for the Rise trade in. New manager has no idea how to work the system. Somehow gives me the additional credit and another copy of Monster Hunter fully paid off. Not sure how that happened, but I'll go fix it at some point.
