CVS has a deal this week where you can get $10 in Extrabucks Rewards by buying $50 in Domino's/GameStop combo gift cards. It shows a picture of a pack with a $25 Domino's and a $25 GameStop card. Before anyone asks, Extrabucks cannot be used to buy other store or restaurant gift cards or prepaid debit cards, but you can use them to buy items at CVS other than cigarettes, alcohol, and lottery tickets, etc. Good for anyone who missed last week's Dollar General deal. Also pictured in the ad are Dunkin Donuts and The Children's Place gift cards. Don't know if you can mix and match. Offer limit of one per household with CVS card. Ends 11/17.

I was thinking about scooping one of these up on BF. Quick Q though: will PSVR work with these older models? I assume yes, but wanted to make sure as I’ll probsbly get that too, eventually.

How long is Gamestop going to take to releasethe BF ad? It’s already like 10 days until BF. Need to see what collectible sales they will have.


Sometime this week I reckon. Doubt they wanted to post the ad before Pro Day happened and drive away potential sales.

The PS4 Slim 1tb TIV is $175 + $25 extra credit = $200 TIV

They will have the Spiderman PS4 Slim 1tb for $199 + tax on BF (all other retailers are offering this bundle), so you basically get the Spiderman game for free.

Saw an ad on the front door of a GameStop stating that they'll open at 3 PM Thanksgiving day. I don't remember them opening up so early the previous years.

Yikes. Well, GS has to be thinking its days are numbered at this point so have to push those sales. It's unfortunate. I do think stores like GS are good for gamers overall, but with the steady and inevitable demise of physical media, the writing's on the wall.

I've been trying to sell my Xbox One S locally, but getting nothing but lowball offers; some guy even offering his car, lol. I might just trade it in to GameStop if I can get $200 ($175 + $25).

Nice. The original is $200 TIV, too. Upgrade to the slim, get an extra 500GB and spiderman free. Though you lose optical audio. Decisions decisions...

$200 total trade credit for an Xbox One S or PS4 original is a great offer, especially with no requirements to purchase another system.  I would jump on it if I had either in my collection.

Is GameStop like in massive debt? Is there any real evidence to the narrative that their days are numbered?

They’ve pivoted the business many times before I don’t see why they can’t continue to do so. From 90s to 2000s to now with collectibles and toys.

Games wont be 100% digital even for a few generations because low income families who play games need places like GS to buy used, cheaper out of print games, gifts, and to sell their own games in an accessible if flawed way.

If anything I can see GS needing to have a good response to apps like offerup, let go, etc to keep trades going well

But is there any real evidence to say they will go out of business anyone soon? Ppl push this narrative just because they think it may happen but most retailer closures are due to huge debt.

Like Hollywood which has like $100M debt for years, eventually making it close

Astro Bot for only $20. I just bought from Best Buy last week with $10 certs and 10% off at Best Buy for $26. Not sure if I should bother returning and then buying from GameStop next week. I suppose I can always wait and see if I can get a copy at GameStop first and then return the Best Buy copy after.

Damn $10 for Horizon GOTY. Already own base game but not DLC. Is the save file the same or is it different?

Yes, your save file should be compatible--I finished the base game with the standard edition then later got the GotY version for the DLC and my save was there.

Good price on controllers, only says it omits copper so I'm hoping to get blueberry and orange. I've managed to do most of my shopping early now. Just gotta cop starlink somewhere and mostly done.

Those deals online too?

Some decent prices. Wonder when the actual bf ad will leak/release. Anyone new to PS4, or who hasn’t played them yet, $35 for 5 Uncharted games is an absolute steal! Some of the best games I’ve played this gen and last.

Usually both online and in-stores, but the fine print did mention that some offers may not be available on their website.

Someone purchasing a PS4 for the first time this holiday can get the console with Spider-Man, God of War, and HZDCE for $240. That is nuts.

GOW will be cheaper elsewhere, but many discounted triple-A exclusives on PS4 this time around, for sure. 

 

Just a bit disappointed that the advertised PS4 slim bundle (1TB with Spider-man) for $199.99 is relatively similar to last year's BF promo (1TB w/ $50 GC) at the same $200 price point.  Not much traction after a year.  I will not be surprised if there won't be a PS4 Pro sale at all in the final GS BF ad.

Holy crap! That Gamestop early Black Friday ad has some great deals! Definitely going to pick up a complete edition of HZD and Firewall for $9.99 each.

This is crazy tempting... Never traded a system into GS before - does it take long? And I wonder how limited the Spidey system will be?

I suggest trading in your old system now and put the credit on a card. If your system is already updated to the latest patch, the transaction should not take longer than 10-15mins.  GS employees are suppose to hook it up, power it up, run quick diagnostic, and test controllers.  Afterwards, you can easily go to any GameStop store to hunt down the PS4 Spidey bundle, if necessary.  (I doubt they will be in short supply when the sale kicks off on the 18th. Good luck!)

I tried to do it last week and there wasn't a way to add it to the cart without adding a game and then taking the game out before checkout. Once I took the game out it wouldn't let me check out. I called CS and they said in-sore only. Not sure that's accurate since they mostly seem to not know what they're talking about but I went in since I needed to anyway.
