For anyone wanting to try the "have the employee do it" I wouldnt bother. I've been told by more than 10 different employees over 5 or so different stores that "Yea, we can't adjust trade value" so it sounds like the ones doing it are acting on their own. A.K.A. a very rare Gamestop occurence.

FWIW, it was the store manager that did it for me earlier today. Only other person was in training, her first day I think. I just noticed the trade values were off for the two games, mentioned it to her and he came over, confirmed on the printed ad that all PS4 games have an added $5 and said he would just add the bonus himself. He took out a calculator and got the correct value that was missing from the bonus.

 

Edit: To the above question on the PS4 Pro, it automatically added it on.

Yea, I can't give them anything higher than a 0 on the survey 🤷‍♂️

I had a manager in the past reduced my trade-in bonus just because she thought I was getting such a great value in my trade already. That's what I assumed because I didn't noticed what she did until I got home.

I do have a question, how does the buy 2 new titles $29.99 or more and get 50% off 1 used title work? I have three new games in my cart along with Ghost of Tsushima used but GoT is still showing as $37.99 in checkout, no discount.

Someone on the IGN private Facebook group for their Nintendo podcast is claiming they got the $5 extra on $3 base TIV games like Knack & AC IV; I am pressing for more details.


He responded & posted his receipt & it had a bunch of price overrides, so I think the employee manually adjusted the amounts.

Not gonna work with pro day. It’s a promo that doesn’t stack.

Confirmed +5 didn’t work for switch games. Started the trade with 3 games all 3 base that only got the 50+10%.

I thought I would also confirm that the $5 extra did not ring up on any of my games. I was trading with values from $2 through $22. No issues with the console bonus.

Also had no luck with the $5 bonus. All games with the 50% instead.

I’m logged into my pro account and cyberpunk is showing 59.99 in my cart lol

you know, this is probably just gamestop being gamestop and the $5 extra per game is just different wording for the 50% bonus and it was suppose to say  it was good on any $10 game.

Got $150 for the switch lite. More than I would’ve gotten most places after fees and such.

Is the console bonus only credit or does it work for cash?

Traded in my Xbox one S and One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 (Switch), Fire Emblem Heros, and Sea of Thieves. The console got the $50 and all 3 games got the $5 bonuses automatically.

The extra $50 is credit only.

Traded in Mario Kart Wii for $32 and made another $6 trading in the daily deal from earlier this week.

Considered extending my pro membership but I’m good until November and want to make sure they don’t neuter the program or close the store nearby.

This has to be the worst Pro Day. And Pro Day was never all that good anyway

So SoT got $13.80 and you didn't have to ask them to do it?

Yes. I also renewed my pro in the same transaction. Maybe you need to renew pro to get the $5?

This happened with the last big sale. Unfortunately it won't stack with sale items, but I WAS able to get it to work on the last day of the sale last time at like 10pm. So you may want to try this evening and see if it starts working just before the sale ends.

I traded in 34 games earlier, had to get $5 bonus override on all of them, $292 in trade credit. I did pro renewal as well, will see if the 10k points show up or not. I did get the $5 bonus coupon on receipt afterwards.

 

I initially explained to the associate about the ad and he started saying that usually there is a minimum and I said the ad didn't show one, so they did the override. YMMV of course as some may not budge.

Had a busted fat ps4 and still got the $50 bonus on it. I'm a regular the store so I typically throw down a reserve when I do stuff like this, also renewed for the bonus.

Well, it took them like 45 minutes to figure it out and manually override it, but I got the extra $5 on a dozen PS4 games, jumping the total to $99. They actually somehow shorted me like $2 in the adjustments, a quarter or two on like half the games, but not worth an argument.

I'm hesitant to buy Cyberpunk even at the current prices. Like honestly wonder if I should wait for the bargain bin.

It'll likely end up there eventually. I'm not sure that game will have any staying power outside the people waiting for the patches still.

Picked up NHL 21 (XB1) and renewed my Pro membership, didn't see anything else worthwhile.

I only traded in 5 games (base $3 to $5), but it took an extra 15 minutes for them to figure out how to manually get the total to refelct the equivalent of a $5 bonus for each game.  Wow, what a strange receipt I got...it's like they had to keep adding small increments of bonus cash for each game.  

 

Almost grabbed a couple of $19.99 games on the B2G1, but decided to wait until they run the "buy 5 or more get 50% off" for those.

All the games I traded in today got the $5 bonus and I didn’t have to mention anything. It was about 12 games or so

Had a weird experience today. Went in just to browse and was immediately met at the door by someone talking to me about Pro Day. He handed me the ad and then showed me a list of games that if bought that day, I would get a "free" year of Pro. I said, "Wow, so do you get a free year of Pro, or are those just the games you're selling at at least $15 off so it's like the Pro is free?" He then became flabbergasted and stuttered "I'm not sure" a couple times as I walked away. That was a first.
