I'm hopeful of getting a white oled during my lunch break - which happens to be around the time the store opens.

I would have loved to take advantage of the trade in offer they currently have for my v1 switch, but don't have it on me.

Anyone know the likelihood of a GameStop employee to allow me to return (if I get lucky enough to get one) my oled this afternoon, trade my v1 and repurchase the oled with the trade in credit?

Ah sorry. Hope you didn’t wait too long. My store has some crazies (including me). First guy in line arrived last night and slept in his car, 2nd guy got there at 3:30 and I was next a bit before 6. Next guy came at 7:30 so I felt dumb for arriving so early. Line grew to about 20 and only 7 consoles.

Thanks. Does anyone recall if G2L codes are different depending on the console version?

You should be fine. Think the same code applies for both ps4 and xbox.

To those trying to secure Metroid SE. You cannot add it to your cart, however, if you go on mobile and check out with Apple Pay the order will go through. You will get email and everything. Whether it gets cancelled is TBD rn.

Yes. Just be polite, have your receipt. They should refund your original payment. Then you should be able to trade and re-purchase.

It should be $215 after bonus until EOD on the 9th.

Nice. I managed to snag a random lonely Series S at my local target (real money. Boo) so I can trade in my Xbox S for $215 later today.

Series S doesn't have optical but I don't have any discs left after this trade in promo anyway :)

Yes it’s still on today. No idea how long it lasts though. With pro membership can get 260 tc for your Switch. Does not have to include simultaneous OLED purchase.

Traded in my V1 Switch for $260 and pick up a White OLED I didn’t preorder, my store have 18 white total not sure how many preorder manager say only a few for walk in

Is there a promo that's bumping that to $260? I'm seeing $220 as the pro value for the V1 switch.

Typically yes. I think some people have succeeded on just giving the code to enter, but definitely YMMV

Yeah I like to spread it out over multiple cards to not raise any red flags. Also the employees used to always shout how much you have left on your card at the end of a transaction. I'd just prefer to avoid the whole "YOU HAVE NINE HUNDRED FIFTY THREE DOLLARS LEFT ON YOUR CARD!"

I do the same thing. The only problem is when you have to buy something online, it only lets you use 2 trade cards at a time.

Nice! Paid with credit card and took a screenshot (always gotta take a screenshot when shopping online, if the retailer decides to screw you and say they didn't receive your order).

I just traded in my V2 Switch and 5 games. I was expecting a long line but only 3 people were in front of me. The manager said that they only had Switches that were pre-ordered, so no extras. He also said that Switches will not be like PS5 and Xbox S/X. They well be available in waves, so random shipments.

A couple of art pieces and a steelbook...can't figure out why I want this Metroid SE so bad.   Should have been priced at $79.99 for what they're offering.

Oh that sucks. I didn't realize that. I have been considering saving for a gaming laptop so that will make it tricky.

Amazon has/had both Switch white OLED and Metroid Dread SE. Would have totally preferred to get the Switch OLED at GS, to use certs, but it is what it is and I don't have to drive out to the store or use GS crap website.

Have to have Amazon Prime though to get the Switch OLED lol.

Yeah, I consider it a $40 difference since you can easily get it at Walmart for $50 in-store. Makes it very hard to swallow.

I decided I’m gonna wait on the OLED switch until a themed one comes along. If anyone in south NJ wants it, let me know. I’ll swing by tomorrow to cancel otherwise.

Store confirmed pro trade in for switch is $260. Does not have to trade toward anything.

wait, does this really work and can I do it today? I just bought the OLED online at GameStop and I’m planning to do a return and rebuy so I can use the trade credit towards the console. This means I will not have the console to do a transfer, anyone know what data I lose (I already have cloud saves)?

what's g2l

 

also i came back from GameStop with 293 dollars in store credit. was tempted to buy the amiibo for dread. unfortunally my store didn't have any oled switches but the guy told me to check Sunday morning online for them. Any credibility to that?
