Side-thought: Hope this 50% promo can help us figure out if there truly are new trade-in limits... something like limit 1 copy per rolling 365 days should be easy to figure out I'd think :-k

Has anything been rumored or speculated? I’ve got about 6 copies of Wii sports from yardsaling I’m looking to cash out on and tbh, I’m ready to take the soft trade ban because it’s been over a year since their last 50% promo and who knows when their next one will be.

Also, do they still do end of the month credit bumps? Not quite sure which day that’ll fall on since the last day is a Friday.

well i can confirm that this isnt true, unless its an audit-based system. i traded in yesterday and ive traded in 2 copies of a few games several times this year on same account. including the first day of the extra 50%

Sell them on facebook marketplace and make enough money to get a switch lite and some games. You have some nice items there.

They do seem to have bumps at least once a month, but don't think the Wii/360/PS3 really get any meaningful bumps unless the pre-owned price ticks up again. (I bet Wii Sports will be $199 pre-owned by the time kids of the mid 2000s hit the nursing homes... with The Office on loop)  :shock:

Thanks for the data point!

Wow nice finds. If you really must trade in to GS do disc only. Eventually you may want to start a collection of your own and loose discs are way easier to find for cheap. Or sell for actual money if you are so motivated. CIB = premium! Personally, I'd just hold until they hit the moon  :cold:

Yep, mine only put the good stuff on their auction site.  :oldman: Except Kinect Adventures, plenty of those!

I feel like this may be a troll but I'm going to respond seriously anyway. Perhaps it's just naivete.

 

As said previously, this is a bad idea. Price charting has these at over $600 assuming they're complete. Even if you sell them at 50% of that on Marketplace you'll clear $300. The Gamecube games alone are over $300 and Pandora's is a $60-$100 game depending.

How many online returns/exchanges can you do without getting banned?  I have ordered a lot of 4 for 20 games recently across multiple orders and several don't work.  I think I've done 2 exchanges this year and will probably need another 3-4 due to them sending me scratched up games that give disc read errors.  Will I be banned?

Yeah, you are fine.  I think GameStop bans are mostly related to trades.  Unless you are returning every single thing you buy, even if you only kept like 50% of it, they should still never be in a position of losing money overall.  Trades that’s a possibility for them.  I think as long as they are not losing money overall and you aren’t stealing or committing return fraud, they wouldn’t have any reason to ban you other than an associate feeling the need to get personally involved out of concern, annoyance or spite.  They can’t be in the pre-owned with no description and pretty much no verification of condition business, plus selling opened display copies as new without expecting a large amount of returns.  

 

Trades have specific numbers that cause bans, returns probably don’t?  Has anyone ever been banned for anything other than winning too much with trades?

Wasn't there someone in here that was an asshole to the employees and that got him banned?

Doesn't the game coin require that the game be paid off fully before release day? Haven't bought any of these games that supposedly do, since missing out multiple times last year with Avengers and some other game.

When they actually had retro stuff I bought a bunch of games and had several wtf moments including a ps1 disc split like pac man. I returned hundreds of dollars worth of junk/defective stuff and did not have any issues. Eventually I got sick of the random condition lottery and stopped ordering retro stuff. I did get a copy of Xenogears in okay shape with case, cover art (with a little moisture damage) for $10 so there were some wins that kept me playing longer than I should have.

A few random returns should not cause any red flags, that said there seem to be unexplained bans going around so who knows.
