I went to trade in a PS5 game today (first time) and it got a 20% PUR extra credit instead of the usual 10% PUR extra credit. I was surprised because I was going off of the value online.

Cool. Did you trade toward Madden too for that extra boost?

No, I avoid the pre-order bonuses because for me it is too much hassle to trade in if you don't love it. They want you to put all of your credit towards the game, up front, in some stores. I had a cashier once ask me why I did not like the game and then I had to come up with some bs so they would take the trade in (when the "if you don't love it" promo started). Some people on here mentioned that they did not even get the code printed out on their receipt.


You could always just move the pre order over to something you do want later.

What he said:

And not only that, you could just not pick up the game then cancel it later when the employee won't care (though they likely wouldn't care regardless).

Can you post your receipt? Just wondering the other 10% rings up as, if it’s the reusable bag bonus or something else.

I got one of my packages from the Buy 5 under $20 for $50 sale and figured it was my first game (ordered 10 games total). I opened it up and got excited that it was complete, but then opened up the game case and it ended up being having 3 of my NS games from the sale in envelopes stuck inside the case. Oh Gamestop... LOL

 

Oh well, at least I got 1 complete game out of 4 so far... maybe the other 6 will be better.

A kind and knowledgeable Employee could have added the promo for you. Hence the reason I asked for details on your receipt. They list out the base and bonuses.

Got my 5 for 50 order today. They shipped 4 together and judgement separate. All 5 in original cases with inserts and such. Only hink was when I opened the judgement case there was no disc inside. First time I have encountered that. I've read about it on here. Guess I will take it to the nearest store and see if they can give me the disc.

My Link's awakening is still in limbo. Customer service has been escalating it for 2 weeks now.

 

I hope that buy 5 for $50 promo is extended another week, it's been their best deal this year.

Call GS customer service and explain the situation; if the game is still in-stock online, they will hopefully send you a replacement copy. Make sure you have the order number, order date, and tracking number for the missing-game shipment on-hand.

Okay I just contacted them through chat. They said they would give me a refund. Let's see if I actually get it. I am really dissappointed since it was xenoblade torna that was suppose to come.

GS has Rift Apart pre-owned currently in stock

Wow unless you are buying Ratchet with 2 "new" $29.99 and up games, I can't see any self respecting CAG spending $64 on a game that can be beaten if a few days, unless they are planning on it being a free rental and returning it within the 7 or 30 day return policy. Also the last several games I bought "new" in store and online were all opened.

That sucks man, that game is hard to find at a reasonable price.

Most of the games I had that came with no disc were all .99 cent games from a promo back in March. I came out ahead in those orders and didn't even bother contacting support except for 1 game. I hope this doesn't start becoming an issue again, I fear the reps will just think I'm lying after a while.

A few first-party digital Nintendo Swtich games and DLC are currently getting an extra 30% discount on top of the already discounted prices - discount appears in cart (credit to Wario64 on Twitter):

 

https://www.gamestop...SwitchDigital30

 

Plus you get the full Gold Point value for whatever game/DLC you redeem on the eShop.

 

I got Good Job, The Stretchers, the Snipperclips DLC, and the Fire Emblem Warriors Season Pass for ~$36 of Trade Credit and got 350 Gold Points!

 

*Discount doesn't seem to work for Mario Tennis Aces or Snipperclips but should for everything else on the page - make sure to select the 'Digital' version before adding to cart

Grabbed Good Job for $9.79. Came with 100 gold coins.

 

Also got my 5 for $50 used Switch games in. Bloodstained RotN, Umihara Kawase Fresh and Untitled Goose Game came with original cases, while Outer Worlds and Lego DC Super-Villains came generic. I call 3/5 a win.

I guess sometimes I'm not a true cag, and just a genuine fan sometimes.  I bought Rift Apart day one because I want to support the franchise so they'll keep making them...  but yea,  new 1st party games are expensive.

Some RPGs come to mind. Persona series, trails series.

I’m going to say assassins creed valhalla and skyrim, assuming you’re not just main-lining the quests

I couldn't take advantage of Hyrule Warriors being 30% off because I bought it on eShop yesterday, but I did get Fire Emblem Warriors and its dlc for 30%.
