On the app I have saved "guaranteed" trade values of $20 for Far Cry 5 XB1, and $22.50 for Lego Marvel 2 XB1. The website shows each is worth about $7. What's going to be the scenario when I go into the store later, just to prepare myself?


I had no idea the trade credit save option was a complete fabrication. I was updating my saved value daily until I noticed it drop from $11 to $10. I updated first thing in the morning and it was still $10. It literally says under the value "expires today" and to show it to employee. Took it in, the manager was at the counter, and he told me the current value was $8. Where it says "expires today," he said that means it's expired. Even though I updated another one in front of him that said the same thing. Then he explained they change the value multiple times of day, so you can't actually save the "saved" tiv. Seems like a crock to me.

To those looking to trade the regular PS4 for a slim, the slim does not have an optical audio port.

To add a bit to the PS4 Pro upgrade talk, don't forget that if you are at all interested in PSVR (which is cool and much cheaper now btw), then the upgrade to Pro is worth it even without a 4K tv.

I'm just looking to upgrade my PS4 Pro for the new model that comes with RDR2. I need a good trade deal.

There wasn't on last Black Friday/Cyber Monday, at least from what I remember.

Didn't a lot of people get free games though. Like For Honor, World of Final Fantasy, and some other stuff that GS screwed up the prices on shortly before black Friday. My stuff didn't ship, but I think I got 2 $10 rewards certs for the screw up.

Then there was the 4 for $10 online, around that same time, which came out to like $1 game I think it was.

Key thing to remember here is to pay by credit card if possible. GameStop has historically done a bad job on refunding trade credit or gift cards for canceled online purchases.

During last month's last gen b2g1 they canceled one of my orders for insufficient funds (because I used the same gift card on multiple orders, even though the card had enough for all orders). it took them almost two weeks to put the credit back on the card.

I recall similar stories from Gamestop BF last year.

This happened to me once while buying Xbox Live credit using a gift card. After 2 weeks of no response by email and calls that got me nowhere I just accepted that I wasn't going to get my $20 back. I've just gone in store to buy codes ever since, their customer service is a joke.

I know the PS4 Pro with RDR2 for $400 is a good deal now, but are we expecting an even better deal on BF (aka Pro for <$350)?

Probably only Gamestop. And it'll likely be the same deal as last year. $350 with a $50 GC

Does anyone else have trouble with transactions occasionally not show on your PUR history and not getting points?

 

Is it random or is there a cause?

 

Is there a fix or way to get a missing transaction added?

 

Thanks in advance!

Oh man that 4for$10 actually $1 deal... I added 72 games to my collection :P

I kinda wish I had a regular black or white PS4 Pro instead of the Spider-Man one. Was never a huge fan of branded consoles. Wondering how close I could get to an even trade for a new one.

Can't stress this enough. Use credit cards for online orders people.

Gamestop stole like 50$ trade credit from me a couple months ago due to insufficient funds

Sell it on your own for a profit/break even.

When did the holiday return period start? It's not on the receipt. I might just return all my flips. Waiting for tiv of return to dreamland and path of destruction to go back to $20 is killing me. I don't have a receipt for one of the sets. Can the store still return it to me?

In the Pro ad it says "Save $200 on X1X/PS4Pro when trading in X1S/PS4S". Will I need a SM willing to do a manual override if I want to trade both a X1S and PS4 for a Pro since they are the same tier?

Anyone know if they will let you check console condition prior to buying? Specifically the 360.

My store let me check what kind of Xbox 360 it was, I was looking for a jasoer and a manufacturer sticker seal.

Apparently a trade ban from 6 months ago from trading in a couple extra copies of a game over the limit has resulted in a permanent ban (or at least one that has no exact date of being lifted). And here I thought it would take a lot more than that to get one. Thank God these values have been such utter shit that it isn't a huge issue, but still kind of a joke when you know there are those out there that have taken advantage of previous trade bonuses to do a lot worse. Good thing is, the games that I wanted to trade-in, have the same, if not better trade value at Amazon (hopefully they aren't a pain to deal with).

The bottom of my receipt from 10/29 states:  "any product purchased between 10/1/18 and 12/24/18 may be returned with receipt by 1/15/19.  Product must be in resale condition.  Package for new products must be unopened. (Not available for DLC/POSA purchases.)"

Hmm, worth biting on this PS4 trade in to upgrade to a PS4 Pro or keep waiting for a BF deal?

The employees are Fuck  clueless. I think they might just deny the return. They don't know anything about a holiday return policy. I wonder if I can still do the holiday return on online orders with a packing slip.

I just left Dollar General. It appears they are running a weekend deal where you can buy $30 in GameStop gift cards for $25 or $50 in GameStop gift cards for $40. I just did $30 for $25. Good for those who don't have trade credit in advance of Pro Day.

Is there a limit to how many you can buy? I don't mind getting 4 of the $50 for $160 equaling $200.

No limit, but last time, they had to be bought in increments of $50 each for larger denominations. I don't know the expiration date yet either, but I will post it after work when I go back.

Edit: The sale on GameStop gift cards at Dollar General stores ends on Saturday, 11/10.

Well with dollar general that’s RDR2 PO for $27.33

Black Friday can’t touch this. I’m gonna start looking into Offer Up and crap like that since trades are so low yet cash can go so far at GS right now.

Thanks to GamePass, Fortnite being free unlike Black Ops, and Nintendo hampering its userbase even though I can afford it, there’s really only two games I gotta have this year, the other being Hitman. This weekend saves me from having to bother with Holiday shopping for games or tech. Thx GS?
