The whole NCAA 14 thing is really still crazy. Not a good game by any means, but still is apparently desired by some just off name. I wonder how many copies had to be destroyed in order for it to raise its value.

Surprising that NCAA 10 Basketball is on there too.

I just did my trade and was going to let you know. I don’t know if the policy changed or what but yeah I got $40.50 as well...


As far back as I can remember the guaranteed $30 promo has never stacked with any other promotion.

Hmm. Maybe you're right but the last time I did a guaranteed trade value it was $30 for Battlefield V. They dropped the base to $25 but I got $35 because of $25 * 1.2 + $5 guarantee. Not sure about these +% bonuses though.

Question: I have a five dollar off pre owned items coupon. Does it work with refurbished items?

The servers are still up and people update the rosters each year. It's probably not the best game, but has the EA football franchise been good at all since Madden 2001? Once NFL 2K5 actually made a good game for 20 bucks, EA took over and it really hasn't been good since. Which sucks, because 2K5 is still better than modern day Madden.

Are there any EA franchises that are good anymore? I'm a big hockey fan and used to put HOURS into NHL. NHL 19 is the first I've ever skipped, but they've gotten significantly worse over the years.

On the madden side, 16 was the first I bought and truly played since 08, and I really enjoyed it. Used EA access to play an hour of 17, laughed, and never touched it again.

EA can't seem to get video games right nowadays let alone sports games. I hate college football, but I can see why people are still interested if rosters are updated.

Sadly this was not the case.  I only got $40.50. 

Your maths are right, his are wrong.

Did you get 50 % boost ? With elite and promo


I did! Any game with any TIV will get the boost. Any store that refuses to take a certain game, burn them on the customer survey.

Off topic but on topic: is the Madden + FIFA 19 bundle (both games in one case) two discs or one disc?


Two discs.

NCAA 14 is the best of the NCAA Football games on PS360, with 11 being a close second.

Plus the last sports game on a console sees its value stay high well after that season has passed. That’s why NCAA Football 14/Basketball 10/College Hoops 2K8 retain value; also see Madden 17 on PS360, Madden 13 on Vita, etc.

Does the birthday 20% off used stack with the elite discount?

Yes. You won’t get 40% off an item, but 36% off yes.

I remember seeing a few pages back GS is currently charging Elite members for shipping over $35. Any known workaround to get free Elite shipping?

This is bugging me too. I would have bought a couple things already, but I'm not gifting gamestop $5 for shipping when it should be free.

 

Also not worth waiting 2hours+ with Gamestop's customer service to contest the charge.

It's GS of saying hey we're not doing so well financially so free shipping has been nuked. Funny thing people have reported the message "free 2 day shipping on orders $35 or more for Elite pro members"

You should make your order and then call customer service to have them refund the shipping. Just had to do that and i got free 2day shipping. Have them call you back so you don't have to sit there waiting.

Just got back from dumping off some old DS games and XB1 games.  Most of the DS games got $1.30 with the bump(don't care, just wanted them gone).  WWE 2K19 got $26 and GTAV is netting $16.25 base with the 30% somehow.    Used the trade credit to get Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2.

 

Also can now really see why all the old Resident Evil games are on the most wanted list.  The store I went to had no RE 4, 5 or Origins Collection for sale on XB1 and PS4.

Anyone try using this code EBC2HLWMT1G10 from SD? It's a $10 off coupon, online only. I was not able to get it to work (being an Elite member might effect it). It expires on 7/31/19.

Tried on several games and kept getting a message about it will not provide a discount based on items in cart. Free rewards member.

Is there any difference and/or perks with the bundled copies vs. individual?

The coupon entered will not provide a discount based on the current contents of your shopping cart. You may continue checkout without a discount or read the coupon description below and make the appropriate changes to your shopping cart or shipping method selected. Coupon description :
Coupon : PUR Member $10 Off In-Stock Item - PowerUp Rewards Members Save $10 Off One Single In-Stock Item! Discount awarded on least expensive item. Online Only. Expires 7/31/2019

I tried using it on used copy of PS4 Persona 4. Wonder what it discounts.

So when trading I see some games are listed as “platinum hits” and nothing else. If I have the “original” version will that be rejected?

Just different packaging

Thank you I thought so too but I got rejected twice saying that according to their system they are different. Guess I will take it disc only next time.

Is the trade 5 for 30% extra good on any games traded or just current gen?
