So I redeemed points for $10 cert, and I only have thru 3/31 to use it. Wtf

Yeah I got burned by this last year and there was no indication there way an expiration at all. Lesson learned: I only redeem for in-store certificates that I am using that day.

So right now it looks like they removed the auto-attaching gift card to carts across the board.  No 5/$50 active yet though.

With all the changing tiv I've given up on looking for flips but has anyone seen successfully done 5/$50 in stores?

Damn I just drove by my local store and it had posted signs about store closing and everything 30% off. Do closing stores still take returns and trade ins?

No, neither. And anything you buy from them can't be returned to another store.

Thanks for the heads up. A couple of the games that I had in my cart while waiting for this damn deal to start has since sold out online, so I'm probably skipping this one (barring a restock).

Shit like this is why I'm not even going to both renewing my pro when it comes up, because they keep trying to find new and inventive ways to screw the customer. The sooner they go out of business, the better, because they are doing nothing but making the game buying experience more toxic.


In the mean time (i.e. while gamestop is still open for business), I think doing these two things will put your mind at ease.

1) Don't shop there
2) Don't post in this thread

So is there no way to use a rewards cert online? My cert I ordered expires in 2 days and I wanted to get LN2 but no store near me has it. Might just let it expire, upsetting that it gives you no notification that you have to spend it by X date until you order it

Apparently the values were already garbage in-store and the online values hadn't updated yet, so you don't need to beat yourself up over it.

Don't think so. You should be able to call CS and have them refund the points though (this is a cert that you bought with points, right?)

I'll just tell myself they wouldn't adjust mine and feel fine about it all

In store only, lawls, I was wondering why it wasn't working online. I guess those great preowned deals do not necessitate any promos.

Just went in a store trying to trade in some games and an agent told me I hit the trade limit... but I haven't traded like 2 months, and last time I traded I only did about $200, with no duplicates or new games of course. Any changed rule for a trade ban?

So does that mean I need to buy the games online, hope they get here before the weekend, return and rebuy at store for the 5 for $50 then?

So I guess I'll answer the question I posted a little while ago.  Yes, the monthly $5 cert applies to the Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon game code that prints on receipt instore.  I did this today and paid $1.07 for the game code.

I wouldn't bother with that hassle, but do what you'd like.  There's a lot that could go wrong with that plan.  A brilliant store recently shipped me :3ds: Fire Emblem Warriors instead of the Fire Emblem Awakening that was bundled with my n3ds xl.

I've been able to do this with B2G1's.  But I do have good relationships with a couple of the GS managers locally and they tend accommodate my odd requests as long as the POS allows it.

Heard the game is not very good at all unless you're a total weeb, especially on Switch. Easy Pass. Not sure why there are so many recent completely sub-par games becoming "rare" just because of a "low print".

Agreed, this is an incredibly mediocre game that I can't justify flipping even

A couple people have mentioned getting trade banned and not knowing why.

So unless you track trades in excel, or whatever, then it's hard to say what could have been the reason. If it's not 4 copies of the same game, going over the $500 cash limit, or going over the $2k trade credit limit, it may have just been somebody looking into your account and not liking what they saw (if you're a regular trader).

It never seizes to amaze me what a piece of shit the gamestop website is. I wanted to buy Yakuza Remastered. It's $25 for me and I wanted to add my monthly $5 certificate. To make the total $20. I input my certificate code and the price reverts to $29.99 and the code is gone from the subtotal and every time I input it again it says the code's already been inputted. I've logged out. Removed the item and put it back in the cart. It keeps saying the code is already in the cart. but the price is still $29.99

yep, and if you use your monthly certficate it pretty much keeps any other promo from working, even if you buy something not on promo that the certificate should apply to.

Monthly coupon doesn’t work with dotd and most promos period.
