When the promo says "GET 25% EXTRA CREDIT WHEN YOU TRADE ANY XBOX ONE WIRELESS OR PS4 DUALSHOCK WIRELESS CONTROLLER!", will that 25% be applied to your entire trade in, or just the controller?

Thanks!

Just the controller

How long do PUR points take to show after a transaction? I did 2 transactions 2 days ago and only one showed up (finally) this morning. Can it take a few more days for the system to catch up?

Sometimes it's the next day, other times it takes several days. Just be patient, they'll show up.

They usually show up within a few days.  However, occasionally they have system problems and points aren't recorded. If they don't show up after a week, call customer service.

Hit the trifecta yesterday. Picked up Sekiro (PS4), Division 2 (PS4), and DMC V (XBONE) from a Gamestop on my drive home from work. Sekiro and Division 2 were traded in that day. The store had no idea the sale was going on. There was an XBONE Sekiro available at another location, but I read the framerate is a bit better on the PS4 version. Also considering returning one of either DMC V or Division 2 for RE2.

Who? No one on this board has ever mentioned either of these things happening. On the other hand, multiple people have reported reusing leftover certs with no retaliation, myself included.

Yeah normally I use .com to order the b2g1 and just pay the weight. I then call and let them know or take it back to the store and re/re. I've called before and they refunded my prorated amount...... And theres then other times where they refund the whole order after sending it.

So much this.  They'll charge shipping randomly.  The B2G1 didn't start on-time.  There's so much coded wrong when it comes to ordering stuff online.  And then there's getting random empty cases or wrong versions of games which happens so often.

 

Ordered Injustice 2 Legendary recently and I have a horrible feeling that I'm gonna get a plain Injustice 2 in it's place

The B2G1 is nice.  I managed to pick up 2 copies of Sekiro, one for PS4 and one for XBone, and resold them for $40 cash each.

Wow nice. Seems like I can't even find a used copy of Division 2 or Sekiro around these areas.  The closest one is like 30 miles away.

At least it seems like they're trying to get customer feedback on what they want to be able to purchase in-store or what their expectations are.  I'd love for them to sell retro in-store.

 

Yeah, some of that stuff they already take trade-ins on (some headsets, phones, tablets, smart watches, etc.) but I bet they're trying to expand into other categories or just focus on what the average customer goes into GameStop expecting to buy/trade.

 

No point buying/selling stuff if 99% of the customer base doesn't know you sell it or go to your store as an option for those things.

Can't wait for a preowned Sekiro to show up near me. Time to refresh the website fifty times every hour looking for one.

Wanting to try out Far Cry 5 but can’t figure out 2 other worthwhile games to get at the same price (29.99) to make the most of the b2g1. Seems to be an odd price that not many games fall into. Any suggestions?

XB1 by the way...

Overclocked 2 is a fun multiplayer coop game.  Its slightly below the price listed, but Kingdom Come is great too.

You either suffer online with their broken promos, or go in store and deal with employees begging for preorders, and adding warranties you didn't ask for
