I'm debating if I should trade in my first party switch games for $45 a piece and then re-buy them using my elite pro and cag16. It comes out to about $41 after tax for the games but I'd still have to pay shipping and not sure I'd be able to get CS to refund me...

Isn’t that false advertisement? Clearly says free shipping for elites over $35

 

It's gamestop.  Some have said they call in and get it adjusted after the sale.  I'd rather head down to my kitchen and yell at a watermelon.

Don't give them the cases!  Might not receive them when you buy again online.

Forza Horizon 4 is a great flip from BB to GS if you still have GCU and Elite Pro.

I did it and got a free game out of it and had $43 left over, even with paying for express shipping. I made sure to keep all of the artwork from the games so I don't have to worry about not getting them when they arrive.

Even with all that is going on with GS, I don't see it going out of business anytime in the near future. I imagine if things don't turn around it will still take a couple years or more.

Thanks for that. Had a $25 gift card to BB, so was able to turn that into $35 Gamestop credit (pro member). Also needed a 5th game for trading.

Yeah I was being sarcastic. They'll only go out of business if they have to declare bankruptcy and then get liquidated. They have debt due later this year but I believe they have cash from the spring mobile sale. We'll see what the outlook is when they report earnings in late March.

This might sound like a stupid question, but I wouldn't trust Gamestop in this regard. My Elite Pro membership is expiring in May, if I renew my Pro membership today for another year to get the B2G1 coupon, will they revert my membership to standard Pro immediately or will they keep my Elite Pro benefits running until it officially lapses in May? Would like to use the 20% off with the coupon to get some Switch games before my Elite is gone forever.

If you have GCU you can get it for $16 or so at Bb and trades in for like $24

When’s the last time pre owned PS4s had a significant discount? $270 is ridiculous.


Good timing. It's now discounted to 250. Still too expensive, in my opinion, but a bit better if you need one.

FYI - this is not a post about this weekends trade stuff [it's about the App lying]

 

I was looking at my Points when I went on a tangent and started checking out the Gamestop App [Android] looking at the stuff I've never looked at before when I came across something weird - in "My Library" there's a tab with notifications that shows every game you've bought, traded in, or returned to Gamestop (displays only a date and what it is - no price details or anything like that) and they ask if you want to move it to that particular game into the part of your library that goes with the action  - bought goes into "I Have", returns and trade-ins go into "I Had." 

 

So I just started scrolling down looking at all the old transactions I did - mine goes back to 2011 - but I soon realized that the APP marks a whole bunch of transactions as returns.  Like a lot of them.  They're not games that I play so I'm guessing maybe it's boomerangs from over the years that are incorrectly marked returns instead of trade ins?  I'm not sure, but I do know that I did not return all of these games they claim I have returned to them.   

 

Anyway, I've never been one to closely monitor my PUR Points, so this has me wondering if GS screwed me out of rewards points for all of these by marking them incorrectly?   Anyone else notice this kind of thing going on with their account? 

 

I'm still going through my account on desktop to see if I can figure out whats going on.... I have noticed some past sale transactions show I earned 0 points, but of course my Gamestop Order History is so full of open orders where they never shipped me an item that it literally only shows me the last order I made for current transactions.  I'll probably have to look at emails to figure it out.

So is the TIV for Kingdom Hearts III $40.50 (like I think I saw some people saying - not sure if they were talking about something else), or...

$30+($27*0.5)=$43.50

That's how it's worked in the past iirc.

Also potentially stupid question, but is the "not for resale" version of kingdom hearts III worth more on the second-hand market (the one that came with the limited edition console says "not for resale")? I ask because I know some people online will buy the most ridiculous stuff at a premium if it differs even slightly from the normal print. I know the keyblade theme is worth a lot to, but wasn't sure if the art insert was somehow worth something.

I know the keyblade theme is worth a shot to, but wasn't sure if the art insert was somehow worth something.

They'll just trade it in under the standard edition, as there's no individual SKU for that version.   So it might be better to just trade the game in on it's own and sell the extra stuff from the LE on ebay or something.  As someone is probably looking for that stuff.

Usually yes. I'm betting on it. All my flips are still sealed until tomorrow morning.
