It's not a $30 base--$25 is the base and the promo bumps the value up to $30. Any Pro/Elite bonus will be reflected based on the $25 base, so Pro members will get $32.50 and Elite members will get $35.


I assume you’re factoring in the extra 20% for preordering DmC? That’s the only way I’m calculating the values you gave.

No, the guaranteed $30 is its own promo and won't stack with the DMC5 preorder. However, doing either would give you the same final total:

 

Trade in Metro Exodus with no preorder: $25 base + $5 (guaranteed $30 promo) + $2.50/$5 (Pro/Elite bonus) = $32.50/$35

Trade in Metro Exodus while preordering DMC5: $25 base + $5 (20% from preordering DMC5) + $2.50/$5 (Pro/Elite bonus) = $32.50/$35

 

This is because the $5 applied for the guaranteed $30 promo is the same as 20% of the current $25 base.

Thanks that makes sense.

A bunch of people are asking about discord now...

I was active in those posts a year ago before all the drama (been a member here for 10 years), but lost touch with the group of people when they left.  I have Discord and the same username there as I do here.  Feel pretty good my invite request would be accepted.  Can anyone with the name of the group, or the discord username of someone in the group, please PM me the information so I can request in?  My only holdup is I cannot find who to direct the request to.

 

Thanks in advance!

How often is the website off on stock? Says RE2 pre-owned is available at local GS... but I went in and they said the system said they have none. It wasn't on the shelf either.

This has happened to me more than 5 times already. What I usually do is call the store ahead of time to make sure they have it in stock before wasting a trip down there for nothing.

I just want in the discord to post anime memes and take bets on when GameStop will file for bankruptcy.

That discord from last year devolved into in fighting and destroyed itself. It hasn’t been around for a while now, I miss the banter about GameStop.

The discord was pretty fun until some douche ran off and tried to start his own. Apparently it failed miserably.

I haven't seen this much activity in the GS thread since they dropped the TIV on PvZ2 and Amazing Spiderman!

Right? Lol...

The OP of the Discord comment was new with under 5 comments. Stayed away from that...

Does that show up on the website, because it doesn’t on the app.


It doesn’t show up on the website or app. Showed up in store though when I put down some of my trade towards the Division 2. On the receipt it’s promo #22514

That's what I ended up doing. I got super lucky and was able to find RE2, Metro Exodus, and Jump Force.

On a side note, I was extremely surprised by the lack of pre-owned games available in general (not just on switch). I think GS can only hold out so long before they offer another trade promo as the well is running dry.

I tried to trade a PS4 into Amazon and they claimed the controller didn't work even though I know that wasn't true because I tested everything beforehand (and also it worked perfectly fine after getting it back), so either they lied or they didn't know what they were doing, but when they returned it to me, they didn't return the USB charging cable. Am I going to be able to trade it to Gamestop with a third party cable or not? Amazon gave me enough credit to pick up an Amazon Basics or Power-A replacement.

According to the ad on their site, yes, it is.

I haven't yet, but the coupon itself says it is good through 3/3.

I was able to use mine twice, same with the 20% off birthday coupon. Not sure if it was a glitch, but I'm not complaining, Lol. 

The coupon expired 3/2 from what I remembered.

IME the coupon will disappear once closing hits on EST on the date of the fine print, so 3/3. So screenshot it, it will work until closing in your local time.

I don't see why not. If only 14 was divisible by 3.

Is it worth it to grab RDR 2 and Spiderman now or wait for a sale that has DQ 11, Lego DC Supervillians and KH 3 between now and Black Friday
