Lets give him some advice and bring back Elite Pro

They killed it because people like us were the majority of those buying it.  They needed enough normies to fork over the $30 to make it worth their while and it wasn't happening.  It was confusing for the average Karen buying Fortnite bucks (or whatever the kids get these days) to decide to decline the 10% or the 20%.

I bet it is an expensive collectibles-discount membership that includes some sort of dumb loot crate every month.

Is the $5 extra trade credit for Switch games, PER Switch game you trade in? Just wanna make sure before I take a stack in.

Thanks y'all, and good job to all of you this weekend. Haven't checked in, in a while, so I had no idea. Whoops!

Yes.  Don't pre-order a power trade title if you're trading in any Switch games with a base below $25

Awesome, thank you for that. I saw a few pages back something like that, so I was gonna take in a separate stack of PS4 games for Sekiro, but do a single trade of Switch games solely for trade credit.

Just wanted to make sure I understood all the promos... So thanks a ton for the reply!!

If I trade in an Xbox one with a wired controller does the amount they offer take a hit or do they call it good enough?

I don't think they will take it at all. They will make you buy a pre-owned controller.

Correct. The only systems you can trade into GS with wired only controller are retro systems or an original XBox 360.

Just making sure you all know - buy 2/get 1 free starts this Sunday. Limited to pre-owned PS4 and Xbox One games this time.

 

Online and retail as far as I know.

Blockbuster learned the lesson, they had a bunch of shitty collectibles too.


I guess you don't know the story of Blockbuster then. Do some research on how the CEO of Netflix tried to sell the company to Blockbuster, and what Blockbuster decided to do.

They're learning lol.

 

Yes, but here's a secret - CAGs will, uhh, find a way.

 

Hoping this isn't a trend. I know we had some sales that excluded Switch last year, so maybe it's just a one-time thing.

 

Oh, and the sale runs all of next week. Sunday through Saturday.

I knew I should have waited to get Spider-man again. Used a $10 cert from the Division 2 preorder, which I’d lose if I return it...ah well.

Hmm...my power up rewards renewal  Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon says valid:  12/15/18 - 3/31/18. 

The link I used on Gamestop's website says 3/31/19.  Do they always have the wrong expiration date like that?

Not always, but it's par-for-the-course when it comes to Gamestop.

Damn, Ive got a switch coming in the mail Monday and I was hoping for a b2g1. I can't even renew my membership for the coupon because I'm elite.

There are a lot of good indie games on sale right now on the eShop if you want something to tide you over.

Yeah. I just wish they'd include B2G1 on Wii U games. There's a number in store I'd grab with a moderate discount like that.

I went ahead and picked up The Order 1886 (PS4), Metal Gear 5 (PS4)Dishonored 2 (PS4)(we will see if the Dishonor 1 code works), and Sonic Colors (Wii) for 19.68. Good haul IMO.

Is that a Jeff Goldblum jurassic park reference ?

I like it regardless, but if it is a nod to Goldblum, I love it.

Can I trade in games for the 20% bump and then cancel the Sekiro pre order to keep the credit?

If sekiro was still available to pre order, yes. But it's a good way to piss off employees so I wouldn't make a habit of it.

It came out today, smh. Can I just buy it and return it elsewhere for the full credit?

Is there really a public B2G1 free next week? That seems good, but hopefully there's another deal to go along with it. I've waited on every release this year so far but $110 (does CAG even stack with B2G1? If so $95) for three used games still doesnt seem worth it.

Can you get a picture of the signage? Cause I haven't seen anything about that locally.

As long as you can still buy PSN cards, who cares?

 

I've never bought a digital game via Gamestop, so it doesn't affect me directly. Were there deals at Gamestop that weren't available on PSN?

No way. Anybody can confirm?
