It worked with the membership for 36% off when it wasn't supposed to, they didn't know... they disabled the code a few weeks after elite came out.

Not 36%, I think it was 20% off, then 16% off, but still was a great deal. Best deal was the Pro Day in November with 10% + 20% + 16%. Got $180 worth of pre-owned games for $105.

It stacked off and on after elite pro renewals died.  Which makes me think they knew what was up, otherwise why work, then not.  But hey - never know - it's gamestop.

But even on their subreddit people would mention CAG16.  It's no secret.  And no one is emailing customer service to let them in on it (if you've ever emailed GS customer service you realize that they almost never read/return emails anyway)

I feel like they didn't mind that it stacked with Elite Pro on normal non-pro days as it probably still helps get people to buy more. But after stacking it with elite and pro-day before they were probably like nuh-uh.

I just wonder what it takes to get it re-enabled. Maybe they are testing the waters again to see how much in the way of online purchases they get without it on again.

It's a referral code for Cheapy whenever he generates traffic to GS. So my guess is when he feels like giving this site any attention - which has been seemingly nonexistent at times.

For those curious about CAG16 I just got a DM from Gamestop on Twitter:

 

 

I have a confirmation that the CAG16 discount is temporarily turned off due to the other promotions that are currently running. It will be back live on 3/10.

...which was the start of the holiday season. They're not bringing it back repeatedly on accident.

Lmao if only BB were here to see people literally emailing and DMing corporate about why special discounts aren't allowing exploits. Who needs IATCG with friends like these! No wonder GS deals are mostly dead.

I mean, we had an actively maintained boomerang sheet designed to scam them for profit, not too surprising they aren't in a hurry to turn cag16 back on

Your parents must’ve done a bad job with you. You do realize you were the one who gloated when you ‘discovered’ the summer glitch and abused it? Mama and papa Jurai hopefully aren’t pushing out any more hypocrites. How’s your failed attempt at brickseek going?

You're joking right? You literally abused the glitch during Christmas and then said using the boomerang list is a scam? Gotta quit being two faced my man or maybe gamestop will hook ya up for being such a white knight!

I feel like he's definitely still here. I loved BB but there's no way he has truly stayed away. He lurks at the very least.

Only the real slimy ones ask the people who find a glitch to PM them personally and then brag about it on the internet for days!

Who is this "we?"  It was one person, He Who Can Not Be Named, that maintained the sheet. You and I had nothing to do with it outside of profiting from it.

Did anyone figure out what that 2,000 Pokemon PUR coupon was? I don't see it up anymore.

It was one day only. It was available to me on the app. $5 off select Pokemon games for 2K points.

After being on what I thought would be no more than a 3 month trade block at the beginning of last year for going over the title limit in a 30 day period, I finally got the block lifted. I tried 2 times prior to last summer with no success (well, I was told it was lifted and then never was). Gave up until this month due to an issue with an order (had to file a complaint with the BBB) and put in a request to have it lifted.

I bought the Dishonored 2 and Prey 2-pack for $19.99 because I thought it was a new SKU that either puts both on one disc or puts both discs in a single case, but I found when it arrived that it's just the two games shrink-wrapped together with a paper insert. Good price for good games if you don't have them, but this bundle is otherwise nothing special.

They brought back the bonus-towards-a-cancellable-preorder deal store managers loathe. Only 20% extra though and only for Devil May Cry.

Just for funsies - what's the best way to use the following in one transaction (all of which I currently have)?

 

B2G1

20% Birthday coupon on used game

$15 off digital coupon on used game

 

Would I have to but one item that was much higher than the rest (ie $54 vs $18 or whatever) to get the value of the coupon, or should I just hold off on using it?  Don't want it to get burned for no reason, but my B2G1 expires tomorrow, and would like to maximize the savings. Or would separate transactions be the best bet?

Use the $15 off to bring the higher game down to the same price as the other 2. I am not sure how it would work if you used all three together.

$15 off most expensive game
20% off most expensive game, after $15 off
B2G1, free item will be the cheapest after all other discounts

Does the 20% trade bonus towards devil may cry also work with the whole "get 30 for x game by certain date" thing? Seems silly to need a promo just to get the 30 but whatever.
