I traded near the 2k limit last time around but 100% didn't go over. Will try to trade in a couple days when my monthly rolls over and I'll report back. Man I hope they didn't change anything.

When was the last time you traded in before that? I feel like with 1588 in just one day it would have been easy to overlook something and go over the 30 day limit.

It has been 42 days since my last trade before this. I track both values and items traded in a spreadsheet.

Again, I hope my case was just an anomaly. It’s not an issue for me, multiple accounts with lots of stores around I can trade to.

They may have set a new daily trade limit. I know I didn’t go over $2k, or more than 4 of an item. Only traded at stores I’m familiar with and no JD action going on. I traded $1588 in one day and now have a trade ban.

What type of stuff did you trade in (consoles, games, accessories?) If you traded for two Xbox One Xs in one day, i could see the system being setup to auto flag that. Also, did they do any sort of manual override for trade values? I think that may have gotten me banned once.

That answers it. Multiple accounts.... if someone links the accounts and you go over the $2,000 amount between accounts then all of those accounts get banned. It could be due to thumbprint or stores that require taking a Picture of you, address being the same, Loss Prevention looking into the high dollar amount and making the connection etc. Lots of possibilities but I can tell you that I had multiple accounts with my main getting banned repeatedly once they got linked. Main account was banned for like 9 months total due to opening a new account and LP ultimately linking them.

I didn't even know it was possible to have multiple accounts under one identify. I have another account using all fake info.

It's Cyber Monday, but they did not do it last year.

Someone on SlickDeals says that they were allowed to exchange the Xbox One X purchased with the trade in promo for a Fallout 76 one. I'm not sure I trust it 100%, but I'm very tempted. It sounds like the system allows it though - without an override. I'm tempted to try, but I'm on the fence.

I would predict a trade bonus soon. OCT 12 should have been the expiration date of a lot of those that signed up for Elite last year.

If you trade in a console towards an Xbox One X,  do you have to complete the purchase or can you let the credit sit there?

towards the purchase of xb1x. You have to purchase it all in same transaction.

I traded two Xbox one s, three switch and a pile of switch and PS4 games to multiple stores. The consoles I used the $50 500Mil code, that’s quite possibly what got me flagged was using that code 5x in one day. I did order a 500Mil though.

My alts aren’t linked as neither of them are banned. I’m not required to show ID or anything when trading, they all have different names and addresses.

How did you use the 500 million code if that expired 9/16? Or are you only just now finding out you're banned? If it's the latter, I don't doubt it was interpreted as abuse of the coupon, or there being a lower limit on console trades.

Thanks; that's what I was afraid of. But looking at Slickdeals, it sounds like some people are managing to do it somehow (or trade in two consoles at once).

Just found out I was banned.

I didn’t feel very CAG-like today dropping ~$100 on Pokémon Platinum, SoulSilver, and HeartGold, but they were all legitimate copies with the B2G1 and 20% Elite discount. Never realized how rampant fake copies are, and the value of real ones...

Yeah if they are all complete they're worth a pretty penny

Same here as there is HG/SS CIB at my local GS but just can’t justify the price. Also hard for me to find anything else to combine it with.

Quick questions here. I wanted to trade in a game, but I only have an expired drivers license. Why do they even need the license in the first place? Also, will my expired one work if I want to trade in something?

I still have those three games but my nephew lost the soul silver game case. I will probably get one on ebay but are those games having more fake copies showing up or what? I don't understand.

I'm not sure but I assume it should be fine. For me they just enter the license information it seems, no verification for it.

 

Some Gamestop's take a license, fingerprint or nothing at all. It depends on the state, county and city. Gamestop taking your items and giving you money is what a pawnshop does and thus in some places they have to follow the rules of a pawnshop.

If your in a state like California that inputs all of your information from your id/license then they will not accept it. My license was expired last year and I would have to have my wife do all my trades during that time. Same thing when I would trade in at best buy.
