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.

5 years ago, who would've predicted that a pack-in game that still holds the Guinness World Record for most copies "sold" for a sports game (almost 83 million), would be $50.

 

I think I still have an unopened one I got years ago.

They couldn't even bump up the trade value of wii sports! :-(

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.

Can't you buy a couple G2L games? It's a 1:1 points to credit.

Some rarer DS games on my wish list popped-up in stock today - picked up Castlevania Order of Ecclesia and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky. No applicable deals and it's a big question as to if the carts are legitimate, but I guess we'll see!

Heads up, a few rarer games on other systems are back in stock as well.  I just grabbed Dragon Quest VII and VIII for 3DS.  They also have AI: The Somnium Files in stock for Switch again.

I ordered stuff and it all says "awaiting availability" and I feel like I'm never going to get my games.

I was basically out of credit so I paid mostly on a credit card so I'm not too worried but I really wanted Castlevania and DQ.

Grabbed a few DS games myself, hope they're not fake! I've actually seen some complete DS games out in the wild next to new sealed greatest hits 3DS games in the mini-cabinets  :pray: So if most of this updated stock is from stores, they're always a chance!

Regret trading in my copies of 3DS DQ V_ to amazon a year+ ago. Remember them being on clearance at Target, Wally, and even Toyrus. I guess at least I saved the cases!  :wall:

Just kick the points toward a guaranteed to love title, then trade the games in a little later at a different store. You get full credit back and points as well!

Does it have a Usps or Fedex tracking#? I bought a DQVII myself, so hoping it comes from a store. When I bought one last time, it came from the warehouse in terrible shape and had to return.

Fedex, which I'm assuming means from a store?

Values still holding. Anyone confirm if Monster Hunter Rise is eligible for the bonus yet?

Yeah that should mean from a store. I'm still seeing lots of rare games in stock with 10+ availability. Haven't seen a restock like this in awhile.

Crazy, right? It's just a damn shame that cag16 isn't working again yet

I haven't seen any stock become available in my area.  Including games I know a store has 1 display copy left in inventory.  So I don't see any local evidence of web moving away from showing -1 inventory.

 

I did however just drop $200 on some hard-to-find niche games.
Edit:  Half my items ordered are now stuck in "awaiting product availability." I'll never get them.  I hate this website.

If anyone gets a shipping on anything that is marked as "awaiting product availability" please update us. I feel like Gamestop just sold me $300 worth of stuff they don't have.

Pretty good deals out there with the 4 for 20 on $9.99 and below games.  They restocked some decent games.

Ordered Untitled Goose Game Switch and Metroid Trilogy for $35 each. Did another order for Fairy Tale with birthday coupon. Missed out on Pokemon Platinum by a few minutes. Was going to get another Metroid too but sold out. Hopefully this stuff ships.
