I slam people who buy stores out and screw people just trying to get a deal over my dude

Bottom line making the information public after the fact when some people haven't even received their items not to mention all but guarantees a glitch like this won't happen again. That is just a greedy thing to do.

 

Elitism at its finest. "Look at me guys I got in on a deal that you didn't"

 

If the truth be known you don't even know how to glitch, bro. You paid at least double what you needed to achieve greatness.

NSW games haven’t bumped back up in TIV yet, but I’m still hopeful it’ll happen before the 8th 🤞🏼

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.

Do the clearance collectibles ever go past 50% off discount?

Does GameStop sell VUDU gift cards? And if so, has anyone tried buying one with trade credit?

If you get the 7.99 collectible bag right now you can knock another 25% off the clearance. But that’s really been the highest I’ve seen.

FYI,  South Park Factured But Whole for the switch is a easy credit mover over to BB if you are looking for BB credit. Burned a couple of certs to move some credit over.  Also MLB the show 18 for PS4 is a small hit mover.

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.

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.

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.

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.
