Yeah I check back in now and again to see if anything has improved, but the shit just becomes supershit.

LOL!

Since boomerangs were pretty crappy I managed to grab a good chunk of PS3 games from someone on Facebook marketplace for $60 cash that I was able to trade it in for $145 credit after bonus!

And today the Switch games went from $22.50 base to $22.00. Ugh, these aren’t going back up for awhile, I’m guessing.

The same promo is still going on. I could be wrong but let’s see what happens Monday.

wording says any -

wording says any pre-owned product.  So I assume you could buy a used PS4 or Xbox one and trigger the bonus.

Finally a good promo...but $22.00 switch base kills the deal for anything I am holding. I hope it changes on Monday...:/

I just noticed GameStop hasn’t done a “text this number for a B2G1” in a while.

From the wording I see, it says it works on games and accessories.

That's crazy! Do you think it will go backup or should I trade it into Best Buy (26.93 before GCU)?

You sir are a hero we don’t deserve. I was about to trade in 6 top value switch games. I will now wait.

The 70% bump with current TIV is essentially a $25 base with a 50% bump.

$22 x 1.7 = $37.40
$25 x 1.5 = $37.50

Well played if the 70% is legit.

...and still hot garbage for nsw :D (though it is better if you buy something cheap preowned vs need to trade 6 games)

Damn. Seems pretty dumb, as I'm sure there are legitimate families out there trading in systems with more than 4 controllers.

Fire Emblem Warriors went from $20.00 to $6.00, as did Skyrim. This is annoying, but hopefully temporary.

You can trade in up to 8 controllers kotor. I’ve done it plenty of times.
Also, yeah, starlight wasn’t being racist, was obviously referencing his Sd alt.

To tell you the truth

These low values may correlate with the losses they took during the b2g1

GameStop has to recoup money somewhere

I'd ride out the price drop it'll probably recover over time, they're probably getting people jumping on the trade in deals which floods the available inventory too much

Nah inventory gets pummeled after a store wide b2g1. It's the typical GS simultaneous trade bonus/base value tank

What if I add “warriors” to the equation? :D

(still holding a copy for a good trade in, tried it out, and decided it wasn’t my cup of tea whatsoever)
