It's certainly not supposed to but uh if it let's you actually complete it I absolutely would haha

huh.  Alright I'll give it a shot and report back.

 

EDIT: "We're sorry but we could not find the product you are looking for."

 

Bummer.  Apologies if I got anyone's hopes up.  Guess I need to decide if regular Pro is worth it.

 

EDIT 2: wait, this is the only renewal screen I see.  how would I even renew for regular Pro membership if I wanted to?  So weird.

Does anyone know when the Ubisoft sale ends? I've looked just about everywhere I can think of on the website to no avail.

I thought you had to renew from an actual GS store to be honest

You can’t renew to Pro while you have Elite Pro. You have to let it expire first.

When I tried to renew Pro because my Elite Pro was expiring last month, I was told that I could not do it until the Elite Pro actually expired. In fact, they gave me a date that was two days AFTER my Elite expired, and told me they couldn't renew it in store until then. Don't know why that would be, but that's what they said.

 

EDIT: Guess I should've refreshed the page before I replied. Carry on!

Yeah and my dumbass didn’t even have a sense of urgency at the time. Someone on here said oh best buys planning on ending gcu renewal. And guess what, I decided to wait n see if the rumor was true, and a couple days later..bam! No more gcu renewals. Fml

Has GS ever been known/rumored to destroy copies of a game to increase its rarity and value? Call of Duty ghosts for example had a trade value of like 25 cents for years and now is sold and often trades for around $15.00. Could they have received a million or two trades at under a dollar and just made me disappear to make a larger profit on the remaining?

Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t GCU just up and end. I think Elite was rumored to be ending that’s when everyone renewed but GCU there was no warning just for this reason.

Yeah I think there wasn’t any warning. Someone on here just found out that there’s rumors of bestbuy not allowing gcu renewals anymore. Waited for confirmation cuz wanted to make sure it was true first before actually going in store to renew it. Really mad at myself

imo yes, sort of, although it may have been out of ignorance, rather than some evil plan, as an example, some time ago they trashed large amounts of wii sports, some were "field destroyed" while others were just thrown out and reentered the market thanks to tenacious dumpster divers

The Wii U version has a $5 base and is the highest TIV.  PS4 is next at $4.  How are you getting $15?

 

I remember a year ago I got something in the teens for my PS4 copy but that was a bump + 50% bonus.  I haven't seen it come close to that before or after.

I wouldn't feel too bad. There is no way Best Buy will allow people who renewed past a certain date to continue using the discount. There are people that have GCU well past 2020. I wish I would have added another year at least myself, but life after GCU isn't so bad, you can actually play the games you've been stacking up for years now!

I believe the topic creator wasn't down with some of the discussion going on, so it was deleted.

I used the code and it was 100% legit. Is it just me or has best buys game sales been lackluster since they cut off gcu?

Can't wait for Gamestop to flood the market with Katamaris!  Hopefully they waited until after the return window for the restock.

Luckily I sold all my 15 copies for $60 each within days of buying them. Guess no one knew you the game was downloadable.

That’s true but I don’t really have much time to play either so my backlog will just keep getting bigger n bigger. I feel like I’d pre order less but I’ll still pre order a lot of games cuz of limited collectors editions, $10 rewards certs, limited deluxe editions, steelbooks, etc. I’m such a collector and it’s not good. What are the chances of days gone CE price drop before it’s gone everywhere? Very slim I’m pretty sure 🥺

I feel ya. Being honest I still don't have time to play the games in my backlog and I still buy new games frequently, it just costs me more money now! I am not a big CE guy though due to how much space they take up with stuff I don't really need. 

 

Also I keep forgetting about Days Gone, I feel like that game is going to be surprisingly good.

I just noticed a banner on the websites front page towards the bottom "Get up to 40% Extra Credit when you trade towards select games"... In true Gamestop fashion, it leads to the trade page with nothing in sight of this deal :/

I think that's a phantom banner that shows up every now and then.
