As far as I know, this could have been working all last week, as I kept using "mwtapr19" last week to see if anything came up.  This morning I decided to spell out the whole month, and voila:

I want to say I tried "mwtapril19" last Thursday and Friday and it did not work, so likely started working within the last couple days. Based on this it seems like 3rd Friday of the month is the pattern for the "stealth bump".

It wasn't working last night at 11pm EST. So it probably sprung up early this morning.

So apparently I missed the memo where PUR points are no longer awarded by GameStop for trade-ins. Called customer service this morning and they said it was discontinued last year.

Was wondering why mine weren't posting anymore. 🤔

I just traded some games in last week and I got PUR points for them. I'm elite though. Are you Pro/Elite?

...? I'm still getting points for trade ins. I've never heard of this?

Looks like with the non paid account that might be true (no points for trade ins).  Certainly not true for Pro or Elite though.  I usually renew if I am about to trade or buy something.  My Elite expired last month and I haven't been to GS since.  Next trip I will renew though.

Yeah, I've only spent $10 since my Elite expired so haven't had a reason to renew for Pro yet until I can get something for renewing aside from a magazine that might get skimmed through once.

I'm pro and that's what the GS customer service told me. Is there a link somewhere on PUR that shows that we are supposed to get the points for trades? I only get them when I purchase now which just what I see GS claiming on their website.

If you go to the link a few posts up & click on points by membership level, you’ll see it says pro members get 20 points per dollar in trade.

Thanks, missed it.

Edit..call #2 resulted in getting the missing points. I do wonder if it's just this prestige store in question because I've never had problems in the past getting the points to show. Now it's the last 3-4 trades at that one store.

Either way, thanks everyone. 👏

Shame on me for not know but I have to ask.
Can I use a birthday coupon and a $ off rewards on the same item?
I know you can use different denominators with reward certificates but not sure if it works with birthday coupons too

This was probably posted awhile ago, but please don’t buy those expensive versions of Borderlands Game of the Year PS4/One off of EBay. GameStop got another shipment and I ordered mine a couple days ago and it shipped today.

I did a trade in on Saturday and my points haven't shown yet. It's usually the next day for me. Could just be a system thing.

I know that, which is why I added that for me it's almost always the next day they show up.

Did the store not ask for your phone number, scan your card (if you still have it,) did not have you input your phone number on the pinpad, or did not get your number from a previous receipt you brought with you? If so then they didn't put in your info for the transaction.

Check your receipt; your PUR account number should be on it just above the barcode.

I've been having issues getting all of my points since the 500 Million PS4 Pro (or at least that was the first time that I noticed it). Every time I call, the rep has no problem seeing the transaction and gives me the points, so I have no idea what the issue is.

Just realized that next week is MK11 and Days Gone. I need to find some good flips so I don't spend much, preferably any money, on these next week.

That is probably just Switch game prices re-adjusting after they were lowered during the 50% extra TC promo last week. Stealth Bumps pretty much always go live on a Friday. Wii Sports is on the bump list, but went down since yesterday. The non-Switch game bumps will probably kick-in Friday.

I have never seen a stealth bump on a Tuesday before. Now the big question is how long will it last, because it was usually Friday - Monday.

I have a number of switch games from the Prestige B2G1.  Should I trade in now or wait until this weekend?  Do you think they will go any higher?

I would personally wait until Friday. Those trade values are pretty high as it stands, so I could see the popular titles only gaining a couple extra dollars, if these aren't already the stealth bump prices for switch games.

Yeah pretty sure this is just a readjustment after they tanked values last week. Some of the top tier switch games aren't even all the way back yet. It's a shame there aren't really any promos going on right now to capitalize on the bump tho

At least we have the 20% bumps again. I wish this bump had as many last gen games as last time, though.

What's the refurb fee like on a PS4 controller and at what point will GS not take them? Local woman is selling 5 for $30 that all have "glitches" that may be worth a pick up for some trade credit.

Buy them. Refurb fee is only like $4-5
