Is buying games and immediately selling back something that frown upon by employees? Is it it a trade they will reject (I assume they have the discretion to reject any trade they want). My GCU ended so am giving the GameStop/ trading method so am new to this. I have 4 games towards the six game credit bump, and I was thinking of just buying (using already existing credit) two copies of fifa 18 and trading back in order to reach the 6 game threshold.


Just buy the two copies of FIFA at one store and then take the whole trade to another store down the road. You run the risk of getting flagged and trade banned if you do it directly all at once store.

It breaks 2 rules. First, never buy something and then immediately try to trade it back in. Second, you can't trade in more than one of the same game (same platform) on a trade in.


I definitely done the latter on a couple of occasion. Sometimes the rep may ask a question about why I have two copies But I just explain that both me and my brother are just done playing a certain title.

How does the dreaded trade ban work? Everything was going great until I gave my I.D. then bam it says I'm banned. I know I havent even come close to 1k this month let alone 2k. How long do these last?

Still more the exception than the norm. Most stores will not take more than 1 copy.

Two words “low profile” what ever you do try to keep one and you will be able to flip years not weeks.

I bought ONRUSH pre-owned from GameStop a few days ago and used 2 rewards coupons ($25 & $15), ended up paying $12 + tax out of pocket. I love the game and it’s currently on sale for $36 on PSN, and I’d greatly prefer having this game digitally now. If I were to return the disc to GameStop within the 7 day return for pre-owned, what amount of money would I receive in return? Would I only get $12 back, or would I get the full Elite price of $44 back? I can’t imagine GS is sophisticated enough to return my reward coupons or points to my account, but I’d be cool with that too.

If no one knows here, I’ll just stop into a store and ask. It’s not like I’m trying to screw them or anything, I’d just prefer to own the game digitally now that I know I love it. I’d also prefer supporting the devs by buying digitally, since I get a feeling this game is not selling well.

Unless it changed, you'd be refunded your purchase price ($12). As for the points, you'd have to call GS CS and have them refund your points. Hold onto the original/return receipt as well.

I don't recall ever being in a dedicated thread for it, sometimes I see them mentioned in the walmart/target clearance threads out of the blue

I can start adding monthly SKU conversions here if people would like. Didn't know if that's something people would be interested in.

What are sku conversions and how do people usually use them? Thank you offering.

GameStop will occasionally take games that are new and sealed and reassign them the SKU for a used copy, so you can get a brand new copy at the cheaper used price

Last time I used a coupon on a preowned item that I ended up returning, they gave me the store credit for the amount I paid for the game and the remainder ($25 coupon) paid in cash. Maybe I just got lucky.


This time around,I had a bunch of trades for my first set of 3 switches. This included more than 6 games, controllers, and a purchase of xbox card. The 6 games triggered the extra 30% but the xbox card didn't trigger the 40% fortnite bonus on games AND accessories. After checking the receipt and explaining to the manager, he gave me my additional trade 'credit' in cash.

Just pays to be patient and calm and they're usually more than willing to work with you.

Heads up, new marketing kit dropped and the 40% bump towards digital currency will continue till 7/22 for the time being. So you have some options if you can't get trades in or values don't go back up before the 8th.

something a mole would say!!!

It’s listed on the last page of this week’s ad, but it’s no longer marketed with Fortnite.

If you have the time I'm sure that would be greatly appreciated. I've gotten a lot of newly converted stuff still sealed over the years from conversions I've been able to catch and it's pretty nice. Last thing I've noticed to disappear from the website is the HZD collectors edition, so I assume that's a recent conversion (not that there are any left anywhere).

Hey, did anyone the Hylian Shield 2DS XL, and if so, how do you like it? Also, does it show at most stores in everyone's areas of the country? I want to get one, but probably won't have the funds for a month or so, and I just want to gauge demand. It seems like all stores in my area have units, so unless some mad rush happens for some reason, I should be OK.

I've noticed Gamestop's site being more aggressive against bots lately, least in my querying of their site there seems to be a much tighter limit on how often you can make requests, also they seem to be attempting to implement some protection against scraping the in-store data

what were they yesterday?  IIRC, base values for most of those were $25 during last weekend's bump.  Sick would be $30 base, got me overly excited.... :bouncy:
