Ori and Gears Tactics are DOTD again and can still be flipped.

Order Trails of Cold Steel 3 for PS4 a few days ago. Arrived today complete with CD and ... the Steelbook, manual, and game for Trails 2! I guess the retail store that sent it thought it was all one set? Obviously was the same owner, because sadly both games reek of cigarette smell. Anyone have any good ideas of how to get rid of the smell? Right now I have them in a plastic sealed grocery bag with dryer sheets, but I have low expectations for that.

Dryer sheets have done it for me in the past although it took a long time (weeks/months) to completely get rid of the smell.

Thanks! I'll try to be patient.

Dotd doesn't work in store smh, and the store I wanna pick up Sea of Thieves and Ori from says Ori isn't in stock, when the associate literally had it in his hand.

I am aware of this. By combination I did not mean stack. The 30% games were all Wii/360/3DS games or PS4/X1 games worth less than $5. All of the games that got the +$5 bump were PS4/XB1 games worth more than $5. In my experience the trade promos should work together on the same transaction (but not stack, obviously) and someone a page or so ago mentioned that they did work together. I am stating my experience as an anecdote to the opposite for people to be aware of.

I can confirm that this was the same thing at my store. 

 

I traded in a stack of old gen + a stack of new gen towards Skyward Sword. If trying to do it all in one transaction, it was giving the 30% bonus on old gen but not the +5 on the new gen. After trying a couple different ways, it looks like whichever games got scanned in first, that's the promo that would trigger. Only way to get both promos to apply separately was to do it in two different transactions (which normally they hate doing).

Online inventory is -1, so those were likely the last copies. You can price match the website in-store now so just ask the associate to hold it and get over there ASAP.

Wow, a $100-$200 bonus for you!  For everything GameStop messes up, the mess ups in our favor partly make up for it, too bad they are much less frequent. Always seem to come with a catch as well, like the cigarette smoke, but amazing deal overall!  I tried putting a smokey book in a bag with a closet dehumidifier for months, airing it out as well.  It helped a little, but never got rid of the smell completely in my case.

FEBREEZE the shit out of it, then stick it back in the bag. Any other method will probably take months and still not do the job.

The frustrating thing is that in the past the two different promos have calculated together properly without issue. I didn't notice until I got home because the inclusion of the extra $50 on my console was making the trade total roughly what I had expected.

I’m sure this has been answered before, but this thread is *very* long:

Can I use reward certs for digital currency (Xbox/psn/eshop) online, or only in-store? I know the $5 monthly credits are in-store only for digital goods.

I have never once heard or seen that two trade in promos worked together. The Gamestop system has always taken the promo that gives the customer the best value.

I am 100% certain on this one but I think we're talking about different things still. I was not expecting to get 30% -and- $5 on all of my games. Everyone should know by now that the only consistent stacker is the Pro Day 10%. I was expecting some games in the transaction that only qualified for the 30% to get that appropriately, and the others that qualified for both, but were better off with the $5, to get the $5 only (and 10% for Pro). Instead, all of the games that should have gotten the 30% because they're older gen received only the 10% pro bump and nothing else while all of the $5 games received that. This has worked just fine plenty of times in the more recent past (1-2 yrs maybe) and has also not worked, but for me only a very long ago (2+ yrs). I always come to the store with my games sorted because of the non-cooperating trade bonuses years ago, but haven't had any issues with these two types of promos working in concert more recently (but again, NOT stacking). It seems the non-cooperation is back at least in this case and you have to do two transactions to accomplish the one goal. 

 

Edited for some crappy typos and grammar.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I'll sort my games in separate transactions.

Funny because I was already there trying to buy it, associate mentioned they have a new price matching system now and he didn’t know how to do it.

Most stores printed out UPC stickers they can scan. One for each retailer: Walmart, Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Gamestop.com. It should be as simple as scan and then enter amount of price match.

Finally got a complete Xenoblade 2 from yesterday morning. Both new games I ordered came sealed too. It's a miracle.

I have hilariously gotten sealed first-party Switch games that I bought pre-owned. It's like buying a game from them is just a lottery regardless.

Try leaving them outside in direct sunlight.  UV radiation destroys the stinky particles, although you probably don't want to leave the actual disc outside since UV will also destroy everything else over time (just at a much slower rate, like chemo).

If you signed up in store, the $5 welcome code should be on the receipt. The $5 monthly coupons are sent out 1st of the month, so you won't get it until July.

My store manager said it is going on until the end of the week so you probably have until the end of tomorrow

No, not yet. If it doesn't show up by Sunday then I'll head to a store.

You'll get your welcome coupon in two days, but it's only for in-store and expires at the end of the month. I was not able to use mine in-store, though, so unless the employee did something wrong, I wrote it off at a loss. Still worth it when the membership is practically free after the 10k points.

I bought a used van and the lady smoked in it like crazy. Bought this spray called Ozium and one spray killed the smell. You don't want to inhale it, so spray a shot in the a bag etc and leave for awhile, don't breathe it when you open the bag either. I take my dad shopping a few times a month and he smokes in my van, I spray a shot at night and the next day the smell is gone. There is an after smell but it goes away fast.
