Every time I try and look up trade value on the app it says there was an error loading results please try again. Any tips?

Same thing for me. Been like that for days for me. I just load up the site.

Go to 'trade ins' and search the game there.

If you are on the product page, make sure you have 'pre-owned' selected. If you have 'New' selected you won't get a price. The gamestop website is pretty messed, it works to our advantage at times though.

The website is acting up like crazy. I can't add a lot of games to my cart. Tried to add Judgement ps5 and the button just clicks but never goes to my cart

Fire emblem doesn’t work with the b2g1. Pos stops it from happening. I got them to discount all 3 of my games to roughly $18 to counter it not allowing the b2g1, but just be aware.

Thought about Tales of Arise for PS4 for my Save Wizard Max but it's 10 bucks higher than PS5!

This happened to me yesterday. Using incognito browser fixed it.

Strange, I bought it this morning in store and it worked fine with b2g1. got astral chain, xenoblade and FE three houses for $50 plus tax (after price match to website they were ringing up at 26.99). Did they maybe scan the upc for new (vs gs tag)?

They might work in store, but mine didn’t work for me online. Just says that there are no eligible items when I have the OQ2 in my cart. It may be because there’s a GC bundled in or maybe some hardware is excluded. The certificate did work when I tested it with a physical game, however.

Just got back from GS and it worked in store. Used 3 reward certs towards the Oculus Quest 2 no problem

Great..
My set of 3 was Kirby/Zelda/Paper Mario
Looks like Paper Mario was good but would appreciate confirmation on Kirby and Zelda.

I just wanted to confirm that pre-owned games are still buy 2 get 1 free in-store! I just bought six pre-owned switch games. When I asked they checked and confirmed that the deal works on pre-owned games but not new games. Sorry but I was not told when the deal is over.

Edit: I didn't ask them to price match but the new lower prices were reflected in my purchase.

Interesting — I thought it was best to apply a certificate to bring the price down to match the others. Looks like you applied the certificate and still got the $24.99 game free.

I'm wondering if GameStop slipped up and we can use certs on the B2G1, or the price match broke the B2G1 allowing them to use it.

Can also confirm B2G1 works. Had previously bought Metroid, astral chain and links awakening for 110 on the last B2G1 used a week ago. Went in and price matched and grabbed xenobalde, paper Mario, and GOT DC for an additional $40

I can also confirm that it works. Just picked up Splatoon 2, Paper Mario and New Super Mario for $55 or so.

That promo ended yesterday. Only game trade in bonus currently active for games is the extra 30% when trading towards the new Pokémon games. GameStop employee just informed me of this.

I just traded in a game less than an hour ago and got 50% extra credit and didn't put it towards a pre-order. Maybe I got lucky, idk

even if the games do not show up in stock at your local store you may want to check.  My store had Astral Chains and Xenoblade used but online was showing out of stock.   Picked both of them up plus Paper Mario with the b2g1.  Then used my $10 cert and grabbed three houses for $17.

Fire emblem works in MI without any price adjustment. However games are still $27 and not the new $25, didn't bother price matching website over $4 per 3 games.

I can confirm that PM and B2G1 work in-store.
I used a $15 cert, which is why Paper Mario is $10.

I tried to get my local store to do this and they were total assholes about it, refused to even try saying it was too many discounts.

The disconnect between the stores and online lately has me convinced they want to close more stores.

Try a different location. Had them price match there online prices in store today towards the b2g1 and it wasn’t an issue. They verify for themselves the online price and they manually adjust the price.

The stupid part is they’re price matching themselves. I could see not wanting to PM Walmart and do a B2G1, but it’s all in-house…

Went in and they ended up giving me $11 and a sealed BotW for the used Wii U BotW which was supposed to he a Switch game. That worked out fine for me. Also the Mario Kart Switch bundle apparently won't be available in store until "Black Friday" which I believe means Thanksgiving, but they wouldn't confirm that which was frustrating. The store is also closing early the next few days because of "staffing shortages." Maybe pay your people more so you can keep the stores open GS!

GameStop is fucking goofy sometimes lol. I just got my order of PS4 Ghost of Tushima Director's Cut and the packing slip has the wrong name/address and the tax and total was almost $2,000, but the only thing itemized is Ghosts of Tushima.

Also got fire emblem: three houses in the B2G1 (with Mario deluxe and Astral chain). Price matched the 24.99 as well. Does anyone know if these will have good values for trade later on? I jumped in since it's such a good deal, but know nothing about FE or AC.

I completely agree. This didn’t happen to me, but I once heard the manager say to someone that if they wanted the online price, they would have to buy online for in-store pickup.

I got Fire emblem three houses, kirby squad, and astral chain with price match. Just like you, I know nothing about Fire emblem or Astral Chain besides them being good solid titles, and am sure they will hold trade value. I will most likely keep them though because I dont think I will be able to get them this cheap again.

Same thing just happened to me. I asked about it and the guy said it ended yesterday and was online-only. When I told him it wasn't active online anymore, he aggressively disagreed and it was very obvious he didn't even wanna check.
I almost never go to this store but have been twice recently and both times the employees have been resistant to doing more than the minimum. Might just be the employees I've gotten but avoid the Roosevelt Field GameStop if possible.
I'd burn this asshole on a survey but it was a pick-up in store order placed online so not sure if I can.
Edit: Called my local store to ask flat-out if they'd help me with this and they were more than happy to. They really are the best.

B2g1 got cut off while I was in the middle pricematching.  Rang up b2g1 when she first scanned them, then after she changed prices one of the games didn’t came up free anymore.  Nsmb, Zelda, and splatoon was what I had at the register.   Was right around 2pm

An hour ago.  I am in Wisconsin.  Was  able to price match and got b2g1 at a different store 30 mins before going into that one.
