I remember it. It was the same time as the video game day bump because I remember doing that purchase with the big TIV bump in Sept.  It stacked for me.

My apologies to ev'one I confused with my original post...I found my receipt and it was actually a 3 games $14.99 and under for $25, not $20.  My PUR did in fact stack with the discount at the time.

Damn yall still trade into GS? There are plenty of other options. Watching this clip the other day reminded me how bad GS was in first place...

If that's your attitude, you're in the wrong place

YouTube keeps pushing me to watch this video, but I have yet to just based in principle. GameStop doesn't screw me over because I always have a plan before walking in and know what I'm doing. But yes, there recent $15 switch games have been an easy credit->cash+bonus move on eBay and OfferUp, it that's what it's talking about.

I ordered some stuff from the gamestop website and it arrived with a plastic bag inside with a coupon code printed on it but it doesn't say what the code does. Anyone know what the bag codes do?

That guy is an asshat. If it's going that bad at that store take your stuff and leave. From the way it sounds he's from NY, I'm sure there's a PLETHORA of other stores around.

About a week ago.  The guy doing it was a manager at my usual store who tries to maximize my TiVs too.  He tried it a few different ways and got an error message

this is awesome; i love this guy wont take responsibility for his actions. Why  buy the used ps4 if he didnt want one? Granted, they shouldnt have lied, but still.  Not checking your receipt--rookie mistake. If his buddy runs a GS, right down the street, why not go there in the first place?

Did they have to manually add the 20%?  I'll be pissed if the code is suddenly working now.  I waited a few days after getting it too.  It would be just like GS to send out a coupon without any dates on it and not have it work yet

Yup the scan didn't work so they manually typed it in. Maybe it started yesterday?

Well the scan didnt work for me either so he manually typed the codes.  It still didn't work.  I was asking if they had to manually add the dollar amounts, but you answered that.

Typical newbie!  I don't blame GS screwing because he is an idiot. He obviously doesn't jack even though he worked in GS.  Big mistake to trade an used PS3 system and games when there are no trade bonuses.  And he bought an used PS4, only a dumbass will buy a system used.

Gamestop sent a survey asking about changing the Pro membership to remove the 10% preowned discount for 30 points per dollar spent. 
 
Here is the email I removed my details.
"Tell us what you think" is the subject.

Who the hell would ever spend $15 for that?  I can't believe they actually paid a survey company to put that together.

But what about all the awesome pro days????

Used to be worth $15 just for the b2g1 coupon, but not as much anymore.

This was my survey. I think it would be worth it if the points stacked up and didnt eexpire

Points don't really expire as you only have to do one purchase/trade within a 12 month period to avoid points being removed.

 

Given points aren't really worth much anymore (minimal physical stuff), I would balk at moving the 10% discount to additional points.

Since they raised games to $57 when Elite was advertised, maybe they’re hoping to get rid of the 10% promise in order to have a more ideal $49.99 base pre owned price that’d attract more of the ignorant, non-member soccer mom types into buying used instead of new.

At the beginning of the video, I felt bad for the guy. By the end I felt bad for the employees that had to deal with him. Something tells me from my own retail experience that things probably didn't go down exactly the way he says either.

As for the points thing, if I'm understanding it right, then the discount is worth far, far more than the extra points are.

I didn't and won't click the video. 

 

But the reason that he did all this stuff that seems really dumb to do, was so that he could make a video about it and get views. 

There's been a rash of youtubes picking on Gamestop lately because it's an easy target to bitch about and people will click and watch the videos.

Low hanging fruit, if you will.

Gamestop is like that weird friend you've got.  Maybe most people don't like him/her.  But you see something inside that makes it all worth it.  Like any store, if you handle the relationship well and bide your time, you can get some great deals there.  

But also - trades are mostly RIP now and my Elite expires in a couple of months, so maybe this friendship is on the rocks.  :(

If they do away with the pro discount I truly wish the associates luck trying to sell it to people. Sky high preowned prices, trash tier trade values and a single $5 off cert a month sounds like a bad deal to me.

Remember, there are two seperate companies looking to buy them out next month. If it does happen, anything could change in the future. I look forward to all the GS bullshit to end if the new owner does things right. Of course, nothing could change for awhile even if they are bought out.

It's more likely that who ever buys them out doubles down on the GS bullshit.

My brother just got a Wii to play with his daughters. I have never owned a Wii so I have never looked for their controllers before. With as old as they are thirty dollars seems pretty high. Do they ever go on sale? How are the off brand controllers? Is there anywhere else to look besides local sellers because I haven’t been able to find any that way. Thanks

They are relatively common at thrift stores, in the range of 2-5 dollars each.

 

You can also buy them on ebay for much cheaper than gamestop, however you have to navigate through the sea of fake controllers which can be a bit annoying.
