Just used my Elite B2G1 coupon today and successfully got two sets. It did void the 70% bonus, though.

But when did you renew to get the coupon though?

wish we could get some info on if this might happen, the console has caught my eye as well

You might want to get a pre-order in then decide later, the Spider-man CE game sold out fast and a lot of people might want his console because it matches.

Couple weeks ago. Far as I can tell it was a batch coupon since the valid dates were 4/15-7/31, even though it wasn't that long ago that I got it.

On a related but less interesting note: the 10% off collectibles in-store coupon worked on multiple Totakus yesterday. I got the coupon with elite renewal nearly a month ago.

Do you have to pay off a console Pre-Order at one time , or does it work like games?

Last time I did it required $50 down, not sure if that's changed though.

Okay this will probably be my last load of games to trade in. I've got $385 credit now.

DS GTA Chinatown  $25.50

DS Mario 64 DS$25.50

DS Mario Kart DS $22.10

DS Spyro a New Beginning $17.00

DS Plants vs Zombies $17.00

GBA Barbie Groovy Games $3.40

GBA The Sims Bustin Out $1.70

GBA Disney Princess Royal Adventure $3.40

GBA Pac-Man NES Classic $1.70

GBA Midways Greatest Arcade Hits $1.28

Wii New Super Mario Bros Wii $20.40

Wii Family Feud 2010 Edition $15.30

PS3 Blitz The League II $17.00

 

That price on GTA Chinatown, Mario Kart DS and Mario 64 DS is almost double the ebay value, plus I kept the cases and manuals to resell.   Plants vs Zombie was my loose copy. I turned around and bought a complete copy for $12... Upgraded and made a couple bucks. The GBA games I was just happy to get anything, selling them on ebay I would have been lucky to break even after shipping and fees. My PS3 Spyro Dawn of the Dragon and PS2 Jurassic Park Operation Genesis were in the $40 range but I decided to keep them.

Thanks, I’ll probably do that, even though I just got my Pro...

Whats the cheapest used game that game stop has right now to get the trade-in boost?

It is $50 I pre-ordered last night but had to drive over 50 miles because my local game stop had issues ordering it. When the girl entered the sku it came up as madden coins.

 

Also certain games are more than $5 down I had to pay $25 for a $150 Collectors edition.

I just used a B2G1 coupon I received within the past few days for renewing Elite account and it did NOT apply to multiple sets.

Hoping for a good trade in deal to swap my Xbox 1 S for a PS4 Pro...but now with the Spiderman Pro I'm tempted to preorder that instead.

ATTENTION

if your B2g1 expires 7/31 it works on multiple sets

If the dates are past that and expire In September it only works on 1 set!

This is a new batch

Multiple worked on the old batch!

Yes, it is real. You can see it on the website already but not on the app as of now.

Nice. This means 70% bonus trade values extended to August for California.

Is there any way to convert rewards points to xbox credit?  Not sure if it's good on that sort of thing

 

edit: nevermind... And I'm leaving the dumb post up just so I can be laughed at

Switch went up to $220 base. Time to combine it with the $30 extra TIC promo and say goodbye after playing only one game on it.

You sound like me...

 

I think I'll be doing this when I wake up... haven't fired up the Switch in a year at least.  Should I take off the screen protector first?

Probably, but most values are bad already and there's a small chance of a stealth bump next weekend.

So considering trading in towards something used as a boost... does this count towards Gamestop Premium Refurbished stuff??

I have about $300 in credit after trading in a bunch of games. Any idea how to turn that into a more usable currency?

Can a store manager put a trade hold on your account? I was at one store and his asshole manager refused to accept my trade because he doesn't "want people milking the 70% deal." I went to another store and they said that there's now a trade hold on my account. I'm not sure if there's actually a hold on my account or if they just call the other store because it was fairly close by

I'm wondering though...will it be 50% after Elite or 70% after Elite?   In the past I thought it had been 50% at the highest level when there was same Cash as Trade promo going.

What did you do suspicious? Why wouldn't they want you to participate in this deal that is very "circle of life," (trading and buying used to even get the deal) ?

This sounds odd to me too. I would complain like mad if Gamestop literally didn't want me using their own promo too much. They want legit trade ins. They base their business off it.
