Easier than being a burger flipper.

I have no issues with flippers, I'm all for it. I was just merely commenting on his incredible amount of hypocrisy.

Good timing on the CSAC - my ten year old plasma has upped the frequency of randomly powering off, so it's time for it to go away. Anybody know now much wiggle room Best Buy has when negotiating prices on open box TVs?

I've always had trouble calculating the trade in boosts with the credit value, can anyone explain how to properly do it?

 

If you're pro, is it 50% x the Pro Credit Value, 60% or 70%, when there is an active trade boost?

Regular is 50%, Pro is 60%, Elite is 70%

I understand that, but I dont understand what values to multiply those %'s by correctly.

The sheets were available when I was active on cag and then I noticed it was gone when I came back. Sounds like somebody decided to be stupid one day while I was gone. Shame.

Can someone explain the casc for ineligible stores?  So if the website says something is worth $21 base trade-in casc (no pro or elite), an ineligible store will give 21x1.6 (60% for pro) in credit? So $33.60?

 

Sorry, noob to GS shenanigans and I'm not the only one so appreciate the help.

 

Not really seeing what the excitement is about since that just about gets you to where the base values ought to be.

As I posted last night, the $10 credit GS was offering when you bought RDR2 or Fallout 76 over the BF weekend is hitting accounts.

I got one and didn't buy either on Black Friday. Although I did buy Fallout 76 on release and on Gamestop's website at the time said you would get a $10 certificate but nobody at my local store knew what I was talking about. Maybe they saw people asking about and finally gave in.

Lurkers conspired to get BB thrown off the board because they wouldn’t wait until just the next months bump to earn enough posts/trust for access. Meanwhile, some Tourette’s Guy types that “Stan” GameStop despite being too... I dunno the politically correct term for half-r-word types that live in halfway houses and believe pro wrestling is real at 30... to ever get a job there, decided to “teacher you forgot to give us homework” GameStop management via email and reddit to make them change their policies to be less flip-worthy for us.

I lost track halfway through, but it sounds about right. Also the witch hunt for people supposedly leaking BB's lists out to other sites created unnecessary tension.

You won’t be saying that when Cthulhu :xb1: comes for you. And no, Aquaman can’t protect you cuz Cthulhu is not of this earth. Aquaman cannot control cosmic beings.

GameStop has the Dishonored 2 and Prey 2-Pack "new" for $19.99.  Crazy good value for two great games.

 

PlayStation 4

I cashed in a $15 rewards cert towards the Xbox One version yesterday and got a factory sealed copy.  These are two separate games in two separate cases but attached in the package.

Not sure where these #s came from but all the stores in my area just came back into some stock. My store tracker is lit up. Three days ago the closest store that had one was 50 miles one way. Now four stores within 10 miles have it.

Need a restock on Bendy more than Katamari.

I just tried a tradein at a MN store that showed as ineligible for CSAC and did not get any bonus. It had worked in the past, but their list could be outdated. It could be limited to just CA stores this time.

Any proof or links to back this up or do you want to continue to see how long you can attempt to keep this katamari is worth its weight in gold topic going lol.

I haven't seen a store that doesn't have it in stock yet.

With the way switch games never go on sale, the b2g1 sounds decent. Chances of complete Odyssey, Breath and Xenoblade.

From what I've been told if you get an incomplete game you can bring back the fake case and swap it out for a real one at a local Gamestop, so that's what I'm banking on doing if any arrive incomplete.

I got an email yesterday from Gamestop stating I could get 60% trade bonus with Pro (it doesn't say anything about 70% with Elite, but that is probably because they just want it to go away).  I live close to the only store in WI that doesn't do CSAC.
