Pro day sale up, I see a deal 3 for $30 deal for used games in my cart.

That was already up at least a day or two ago; not related to pro-day sale.

It looks like the wording is actually any game on the eligible systems gets the $5 bonus. The wording from the site terms: "$5 EXTRA CREDIT ON ANY SWITCH, PS5, XBOX SERIES X|S, PS4 OR XBOX ONE GAMES TRADED. Valid Apr 24 to Apr 24 2021"

 

Edit: Associated question: Will they take games not listed on the trade in website?

I can't imagine they would take any game, especially those with TIV of $0.01. I suspect it is just an oversight they forgot the MIN $5 TIV on the ad. Of course if there are any CAGs on the East Coast with a Mall GS opening at 10am ... lettuce know!  :cold:

I have a Xbox One X that I have been using in my basement on a older TCL 4K TV I would love to upgrade that to a Series S since I only really play Destiny 2 down there to take advantage of the better frame rate and load times. Getting $250 for it would be great but trying to wait out GS getting non bundled Series S consoles to sale might be to long to wait to go without it.

If they actually ACCEPT $0.01 games, there are 30 or so ps4 games that sell for a dollar, and probably as many xbox one games.

 

That would be absolute chaos.

 

Good luck to anyone trying it.

Oh, I know.  

I have a shelf full of old ps4/xbox games with no value that I don't want that would fund an amazing trade in spree.

$.01 games won't be accepted. Don't get your hopes up

I think you're right. They don't even list $.01 games on the site. It will likely only be stuff you can look up a value for on the trade in page.

My store told me fallout 76 doesn't apply. Didn't ask about anything else.

Confirmed it's not all games get the $5 boost via phone, so $0.01 games don't count. Also my store is claiming the trade in value for an Xbox s is $100 with the pro day bonus. I thought it should be $150. Might still make the trip because I thought it should be $150. We'll see.

Tried a $5, $2, and a $.01 (which of course means they don’t accept it) and didn’t get a $5 boost for any of them.

Seems like another broken GS promo if $5 games aren’t getting the +$5...

$5 TIV not triggering it seems odd. Did they not have your pro account inputted into the transaction?

It's Gamestop, nothing is odd.

So a Switch should get $225 right? I’ve got a V1 that I replaced with the Animal Crossing V2 I need to get rid of.

EDIT: What would I need to take? The tablet, joy cons, and charger? Or do the require the dock and accessories as well?

Wow looks like same value for v1 vs v2. You need the dock, hdmi cable, grip as well.

Everything is required - dock, joy-con rails, joy-con grip, HDMI cable, charger, tablet, and joy-cons.

Did anyone pick up Nier Replicants today? Was there a G2L code on the receipt? If you pre-ordered it, did you get a code for the pre-order bonus?


I pre-ordered and picked up. No G2L no pre-order code.

For those that have already checked about the $5, do you have GS with normal business hours? All the ones around here still don't open till noon. Also, did they just see if the POS triggered it? I thought on PRO days past they'd have to scan a barcode at the register to trigger the bonus.

If it has a hackable serial # sell the tablet alone on eBay.

I just sold a Switch with the standard setup for $240 super quickly, so unless if you're in a state that's giving CSaC, I'd just sell it on Offer Up. People are still buying Switch systems.

Is there a way to remove a code from your Gamestop cart? I have the $5 monthly certificate code attached to my cart and it's messing up the prices for the Pro Day sales.

How about... Fallout... 4???   :shock:

The +5 is pretty much only worth doing for the very narrow range of games between 2 and 10 so. Maybe a $8 game qualifies?  :oldman:

So, website is still showing $200 for a XBX. Presumably $50 would be added in store if you’re a pro member?

You probably need to actually add something to your cart the cert applies to first.
