When it's two percentage bonuses it doesn't matter which is applied first, it's always mathematically the same.

$10 +10% = $11 ; $11 +50% = $16.50
$10 +50% = $15 ; $15 +10% = $16.50

Thanks. I was just curious if the 50% bonus would stack with the pro bonus but it sounds like it won’t.

The way GS has worked in the past is % are add first, then multiplied. So $10 * (1+10%+50%) = $16.00

 

 I just trade on another account

My state pawn shop laws require an ID, so I believe both account + ID is banned.  :???:

Who will sacrifice their time and gas money to find out the trade values aren’t updated yet today?

That sucks.  Mine is up to the municipalities.  Some do and some don't for trade credit.  I tried opening a new account in my name and it let me trade once before being banned again.  I just trade on someone else's account, with their permission of course

Pro bonus is the only one that can stack, others don't. So you can get the +10% pro in addition to the +50% promo, but you can't add a 20%/30% pre-order too

There's a 20% trade-in bonus on controllers accessories...except it excludes PS4, Switch, and XB1 controllers.

 

wtf?

 

https://www.gamestop.com/trade/

 

(scroll down and then click more details, though I'm sure you all know that).

 

Also, I need to trade-in Tony Hawk 1&2 and Miles Morales on PS4.  I guess I'll see if the stores are starting the 50% promo.

Well, it's only been 60 days, but when I escalated it up thru the store manager to the regional level see if I could get the restriction lifted, he said it was a permanent ban.. with no listed reason given. I guess I could try after 90 just for fun. :no:

Ouch, I guess Best Buy will still take my extra Mario Rabbids for $7 and Mario Sonic Olympics for $17 credit :beer:

I am amazed, they even have fine print! So 50% more credit (60% with pro? 80% towards a pre-order?) or CSAC at the base trade value? 20% extra for retro controllers? Have fun all!

On the bright side, I might check out a couple Gamestops to see what chumps they convinced to part with their $100+ retro Pokemon games for $30 credit. I have been seeing quite a few more pre-owned systems (3DS, etc) at times - hoping to find that Gameboy Micro or Vita! =;


Ouch, I think you might have shot yourself in the foot by escalating it up. But who knows, maybe it will go away after 90 days or when that Chewy guy start the change to gamestop online infrastructure.

Most high value Switch games bombed in trade value down to $22 base. Even with the 50% bonus on top of Pro, that's $35.20 in credit. Better off waiting for a bump and getting the extra 20% from reserving on top of Pro to get $39 in credit on a $30 base.

How do you know what went up and what went down?

I scan everything available on the trade page daily, checking for changes, outputting and archiving the data.

 

here's a pdf of changes: https://docdro.id/ZndubWt

Appreciate the effort, but holy crap is that a horrible webpage. Tons of popups/virus links. Can't read it either unless you zoom, which brings up another virus popup.


Haha, I just checked the page with adblocker turned off. If not using one, i would suggest it.

Monster Hunter Pro Controllers seem to be in stock in all the stores around me (plus no tax with trade credit!). Doesn't show up on the website for in-store pickup or anything, but not a bad way to blow $50 cert.  :dunce:

 

So its pretty just for PS5 and Series X/S controllers? lol

The store I asked doesn't even take in 360, PS3 or Wii accessories anymore, so very narrow promo!

 

That sucks.  Mine is up to the municipalities.  Some do and some don't for trade credit.  I tried opening a new account in my name and it let me trade once before being banned again.  I just trade on someone else's account, with their permission of course

My homestore SL is cool enough to say he'd let me trade in on a dummy account, but 1 store really limits the shenanigans.  :???:

Yea, that is the feeling I got too. Escalating got more eyes = more smack.  :oldman:

TIV I believe is 7.

Xb1 is a new release. Hence the high value.

I'm surprised ppl even bother dealing with trades and GS anymore. The gravy train has been rolling off a cliff for a while now, and while there's been some positive news for the company, it's impossible to see how exactly it stays relevant even in the 1-2 years ahead.

Preowned stock in my area is dried up, and there seems to be zero interest in replenishing any of it. And well, let's be honest, why would GS want more of it anyways.

What else are they going to sell? The only reason I go into a GS these days is to cash out my $5 monthly for XB credit. I usually take a lap and it's always the same junk. Plus even if they have new games in stock, why bother since I can walk across the parking lot to Walmart and get it $7 or $8 cheaper...and more new (sealed) stock to choose from...

I think you're right about the 1-2 year mark, seems like they are already not relevant in my area and I figure they will hobble along a couple more years closing stores and whatnot.

I go in for my $5 monthly credit as well. I lost interest when B&M stopped carrying DS games and most of the 3DS stuff...it’s pretty bare bones now.

Does GS stores even take Wii games anymore?    All of the stores I've been to don't carry them.  But I've got an extra Mario Galaxy and Mario Bros Wii I'd like to get rid of.

Too bad you're now known as the guy who goes through his apartment complex's dumpster looking for shit to trade into Gamestop.

I did trade in Wii Sports and Mario Galaxy last week. If the website has a trade value for it and not $.01, then you should be able to trade it in. If the store wants to act like they don't, don't push it. Go to a different store.
