So I go into a store to return my Remake Intergrade and the employee there says (in a non serious tone) "*sigh* Thanks, now I have yet another copy I can't sell". I respond with sorry, I only ordered it for the SB but I didn't get one, and she goes... if I give you an SB, will re-buy the game? (Return/rebuy so that the SB shows up on the receipt with the game.) 

 

So I walk out with the game and an SB... it's kinda scratched up but whatever, I'll take it. And I guess I shouldn't be surprised these are selling poorly. $70 is a pretty insane price...

They don't. I got one and it doesn't have a barcode, so there's no way to scan it.

Huh, you're right- receipt only shows the game... I didn't bother checking before, just assumed what she said was the reason for a return/re-sale.

return the game
70 bucks for a scratched steelbook is a crime

Has anyone returned a $29.99+ New game from the promo and kept the preowned title purchasing in store? Do they prorate the amount or do you get the full amount for the new purchase?


I'm assuming it's YMMV by location, now that they can allegedly check order details when returning an online order (assuming you mean online order, if it's in store, I'm sure YMMV as well.)

I've done online returns (prepaid FedEx shipping label) and they do not pro-rate the transaction based on the pre-owned discount. However, they do pro-rate shipping or tax or whatever they've always done. For example, I returned two open "new" $29.99 games with 6% tax and I received $62.68 instead of $63.58.

Does it stack with multiple renews? And can you pay with it with points or is it cash only?

Why through, they literally run this promo every pro day

Was not aware of that. I've never participated in any pro day sales because they were always crap. I feel like this is something I would have notices or perhaps I overlooked it because I already had years stacked in advance.

Weekly ad: Mario golf and Scarlet nexus are G2❤️. They also provide a 30% boost if you trade towards them. Hopefully the stars align for a stealth bump also.
Happy Father’s day CAGs!

I was really hoping Mario Golf was. Now I can rent the game for a weekend, convert the 10k points and $5 welcome coupon from renewing Pro yesterday back to credit, AND keep the pin set.

Target and Amazon have Pikmin 3 and Paper Mario Origami King for $30. It might be a good price match opportunity for people with credit/points.

Are there any trade promos going on right now? I used to be able to see them in the app or the website but it’s a pain to find now

Yes. Look at the Weekly Ad link at the very top of the gs site.

I know I mentioned it briefly earlier, but if anyone is having trouble with in store returns on online purchases, I'd highly recommend going the online route. I made a lot of returns between all my opened "new" games and fake pokemon DS games, and they all went through. 

 

I know in store returns can be hit or miss sometimes. I know I've had some places that have said, "yeah I can't take that since you didn't buy it here" or "ooh, sorry, it's past 7 days since purchase date, even though you just received the package today, nothing I can do" or "it's part of a promo so you have to return everything". And sometimes it's just a bad attitude (as mentioned earlier, "Great now I have another copy of FF I can't sell").

 

I thought the process was super smooth. You get notifications for when your shipment has been picked up by fedex, arrived at gamestop, and within a day of that you get an email saying return processed and refund issued. Not to mention you get a month to return even pre-owned games, as opposed to 1-2 weeks or whatever they say in store. The shipping label is prepaid, so you're only out the cost of a bubble mailer ($1) or whatever you use to ship, which you could argue is a wash with gas money saved. 

 

Hopefully this helps someone. Sadly gamestop messes up all the time so I'm sure returns are unavoidable for most.

So anyone price match PaperMario/Pikmin 3 in-store and was able to combine with 30% off a pre-owned game on the same transaction? :)

No, but I did try to use my monthly $5 coupon and it would not apply. I assume a price match counts as a promo, and so it won’t stack with other promos.

Thanks for the heads up. Plan is to price match Mario golf on Friday and use my $5. Might just pick up $5 of Xbox credit if that doesn’t work.

I think it does work on price matching gamestop.com. I bought the untitled Goose game and price matched to the website and my $5 showed up on the checkout screen.

Anyone have luck getting a free copy of AC III? My local store had 1 available for pickup but it wouldn't go through checkout for $0.00. Looks like they disabled it or they sold out by 10:20pm.

After adding a $.99 copy of Destiny, I was able to place a local pick up order for one copy on Switch.

NBA 2K17 for me did the trick, AC3 RE trades back in at $5 too. Don't forget guys we can only trade in 4 of the same title per platform so you don't get hit with a 90 day trade ban. So we can trade in 4 copies each on the 3 consoles it came out on.

GameStop is so funny sometimes, how does this not get shut down within minutes?  Pickup available but not worth the drive to me.
