Did you just clear out a bunch of games from pawn shops and such? That's a heck of a weekend.

Half price books was a score for me this time around with there coupons going on.   Let alone a couple of cheap clearance games they had.

Placed some games on hold and then didn’t get the chance to pick them up before GS closed on Sunday. Went after work today and they were still there. Picked up :wiiu: Shovel Knight, :wii: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, :wii: Super Mario Galaxy and :wii: Super Paper Mario as a part of the 4/$20.

Decided to trade kingdom hearts 3 towards shadows die twice. They let me look at the letter opener pre order bonus but wouldn't give me one. They assured me they have more than enough for everyone that pre orders but I feel like I should go to the 9pm release Thursday night to secure one.

Thanks for the heads up, didn’t even know it came with that. I will definitely make an effort to pick it up at 9pm for the letter opener.

If you were holding onto games to trade them today, then I hope you learned a valuable lesson: Weekend bumps end on Monday night.

Ouch. Both of the Wii games I traded yesterday tanked 66% in value.

Interesting business model.

Wow those are some mighty big tank in values.  Some went from $17-$14 all the way down to $4.

If any of your guys stores are selling retro, any $6-$9.99 titles qualify for the 4 for $20.  I was quite surprised as the last few X for $X sales the retro games didn't work (since technically they're not supposed to be carried in-store).

M+R: Battle Kingdom is back on sale for $20. It's still base $15+$5 bonus if anyone wants to turn points into credit.

You actually have a location that sells retro?  One of my closest stores in a Prestige store and even it doesn't sell retro.

 

How is the selection?  I'm guessing really small?

The last remaining stores with them near me were told to send them to the warehouse over a year ago.  There was a brief time when one of these deals worked online and retro games worked with it.

Hey just a heads up if anyone was looking to get an arcade cabinet by 1up through gamestop.  Some of the arcades have come back online to buy and there is a coupon for 20% off $100= Collectibles Purchase.  The total came out to 278$ with shipping.  Better then spending the 299$ plus tax.

Just FYI, these are at walmart (at least mine) for 199.  Not sure which varieties though, but worth checking.

How are your stores looking inventory-wise? I went to one today for the first time in a few months and they had very little for used games on any system, and 90% of what they did have was generic cases. Maybe it’s because of tax season or whatever, but I’ve never seen a store so devoid of used games.

I picked up:

 

Monster Hunter 4 :3ds:

Heroes of Ruin :3ds:

Assassins Creed 4 :wiiu:

Bayonetta 2 :wiiu:

Rayman Legends :wiiu:

Injustice :wiiu:

Sly Cooper 4 :vita:

Split Second :360:

 

not bad for 4.50 a pop. 

 

Traded in 2x Wii sports and 2x mario kart wii for 72 bucks so still pocketed about 30 bucks credit after everything.

Usually the ones around me have most of their PS3, 360, Wii & Wii U games in generic cases.  PS4, XB1 and Switch are about 70% that have their original cases.  PS Vita and 3DS seem to be a 50/50 toss-up on cases.  The ones around me have started to throw away the cases for 3DS games under $10 and put them in those clear plastic cases they use for original DS games.

This current promo has been great for me to fill out my Wii U collection as well. I hit almost every GS in my area looking for goodies and did well.

I just wish I had more games in the locations to pick up. The 4 for $20 plus pro discount brings me in right under $5 a game. I'd buy all day if I could find applicable games in good condition in store.

I just came across a copy of Super Mario All-Stars for Wii at my local walmart, and I know there were trade bumps for some older games based on the talk here, but I hadn't paid attention to any of it while it was active. I see the current base value is $8.

 

Does anyone know if this game saw a bump this past weekend, what it's value was, and if it's likely to see a bump again in the future? Trying to decide if it's worth getting at $14.

It had a $15 base this past weekend and I traded mine in tho it was badly scratched and got hit with a $5 refurb fee. Tho since I traded it towards sekiro I still received $16 for it.

Does anybody know if the PUR Pro Renewal B2G1 coupon can be combined alongside 3 Reward certificates in the amounts of $25, $15, and $5 denominations??  

 

I'm looking to purchase 3 $50 Switch games and I'd like to use these pre-owned reward certificates at the same time.

After the bump on certain Wii games this past weekend, I would hold onto it at least until next month's SB.  The manager at one of the local stores told me they've had a huge resurgence in demand for Wii games, which makes me think we'll likely see a handful of key ones that used to be perennial big traders (Kart, New Super Mario Bros, Sports and Sports Resort, etc) pop up on SB weekends.  The guy who owns a local mom and pop game shop said Wii Sports is by far the Wii game that gets the most requests at his shop.  I guess a lot of people pick up used Wiis from people who had pitched the pack-in game.

So thanks to local Walmart stores going Clearance crazy, my points are getting crazy high - I'm at over 225k right now, and I expect that to jump tomorrow once some Monday trades are factored in.  Am I at risk for drawing attention to myself if I don't spend some of them?  I had planned to use a ton on the Mar10 sale for digital games, but then the eShop was excluded from that sale.

I would watch your account once a day to make sure someone doesn’t hack in & cash the points out.

Yeah I was sitting on 250k points and I blew through 160k of it in 3 days just to be safe. If there's nothing you want then try find some points to credit movers. Somebody mentioned M+R.
