Traded Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe toward Outriders on Xbox for $65. No word of any reusable bags.

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.

Does this mean that rise still isn't triggering the +20% today?

Couldn't tell you, since it got messed up. It doesn't show up on my reciept, but they did have a sign up in the door for the 30% boost.

So I finally encountered the dreaded trade limit exceeded ban for the first time on one of the accounts I use. I track all my trades so I’m not sure what caused it. I hit 1,925 in trades between 1/29-2/22 and today was the first trade I attempted. Hopefully it’s just a 30 day.

 

Got informed of a trade ban tonight. No idea why. Traded only twice since the PS5 launch. My only guess is that I was jrd at my last trade but for no reason. Spoke with the DM and 2 SL questioning why the DM signed off on that BS. No answers, many questions.

Remember reading these posts and wondering if I also got the ban hammer hitting similar limits back in Jan… and after trying to trade in today towards Rise… looks like I'm in the same boat. Plus it looks like my ban is > 30 days if it initiated on my last trade in early Feb. My homestore SL seemed a bit standoffish when he said he had no idea what was going on, so I feel like it might have been a targeted ban and not automatic (assume first bans are 30 days typically?). Said a few other regulars also got the same error message as well, but all heresay to me!  
 
I can definitely see how a manual review of my trade-in activity would seem pretty suspicious (20+ copies of a few high volume titles in 2 years). Oh well, I don't plan to find a work around with multiple IDs / accounts, so if it’s a perma-ban, I guess I'll have to wean myself off the GME teet and do something productive in life like finishing the house renos!  :bomb:

I still have a good chunk of credit and my PUR account seems fine - all points still there and accumulating with each purchase. Customer service still seems to respond to my requests fine (the replacement for the last few copies of Mario Sonic Olympics came in last week). 
 
Anyone else find themselves trade banned this year? Its an exclusive club!  :D/

I have been banned twice in the last 3 years and both times it lasted 3 months. They do a 30 day ban?

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 thought they were just saying some BS to get me to buy a bag, but it turned out to be true. Nice to get 20% boost overall and don't have to deal with trading towards anything.

Gamestop sure loves to ship my orders without updating them from preparing to shipped, thus resulting in having no clue where it is because I have no tracking number .

Just traded in, Monster Hunter Rise was not working but Outriders was at my store.

I found out today my personal account was also trade banned, making it 2 out of 3 accounts that are flagged. I moved onto the 3rd account at other stores on my route. I wonder how they triggered the ban as the 3rd account is just as active and I traded on all three during the February stealth bump through 2/22.  The worst part is that I'm sitting on about 400 games accumulated from the last wave closing stores in February and another 100+ from the tax day 50% sale. 

 

For comparison of trades including bonuses between 1/29-2/22

Acct #1 -  ~1,925 credit 110 titles

Acct #2 - ~1,670 credit  94 titles

Acct #3 -  ~1,685 credit 96 titles 

 

 

 

This also reminds me that I need to call CS about Mario Sonic Olympics from back in December as well.

If you're trading any number of games that total 25 base combined, it only makes sense to throw a preorder just for the bonus...

No clue! My first time... google searches seemed to indicate a 30 day, so not sure what others have experienced.

Probably the monkies working on the website broke the icon/link. For a few days the weekly ad icon disappeared too!

I too have a few extra copies accumulated, but mostly liquidated everything but switch titles.

Interesting, trade values have not changed yet from weekend bump, but they could change later this morning. Or could last another day or so.

I’m debating if I should get the PS4/ps5 version of hitman 3 either on disk or digital. I have both a PS4 and ps5 so I’m not sure if I bought the digital version I could dl to both consoles, or if I get disk on PS4 if I’d get the upgraded graphics on ps5. Anyone know?

I don't think Hitman 3 has a free upgrade option. I've heard the PS5 version is superior in several ways (mostly graphically but also technically such as shorter load times), so personally I decided to just wait for a discount on the PS5 version.

I was banned once and was told it was a 3 month.  I called 3x after 3 month periods and still banned.  I've just accepted it as a permaban and trade on another account

Looks like weekend values are still holding.  Unless it's one of those cases where instore values don't match the website.

The used Super Mario 3D All Stars I ordered on Friday arrived today with the case. Came out to $37.99 after the $10 gift card. Not too shabby!

Looks like the original owner got 11 stars in Mario 64 and called it quits. No save files in Sunshine or Galaxy. (Update: Leaving my blonde moment here for entertainment)

Wouldn't that be your save? I didn't think any of the switch games stored save files

Make sure you change the save battery out within the next 10 years.

THANK YOU! I've been camping the N3DS listings forever and always seem to miss when they restock. Ordered a bundle and a galaxy edition since I don't want to pay the insane scalper prices I see on a lot of consoles right now. Oddly, both listings showed OOS for me and wouldn't come up on a filter until I clicked on the actual page. Maybe that's why I haven't had luck lately lol

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.

trade bump values still holding, a lot of price increases, mostly on 3ds, ds, and wii games. Pokemon DS games at $70, wii sports at $50, for example.
