Sorry for the noob question, but does the 50% extra in CA apply to consoles as well? I see that my white 2 TB Xbox One S system would normally get $150 (sadly, there's no bump in value for the bigger HDD). Would this become $225, or does some condition limit this?

Games and accessories only, IIRC.

What’s so cool about the tin?


Got some cool lunchboxes displayed like mf doom one which is pretty hard to find. And some old comic ones. Just wanted another display piece. Heard lots of people in line saying it was a lunch box

All of the Lego games for Switch are good flips from BB (with GCU) to GS if you're in CA (Elite Pro 20% + 50% TIV).

Another good one is Soul Calibur VI ($15.99 w/ GCU) >> GS TIV Promo = $34.00


This is definitely good, but it's likely dead now. The stealth bump should be over so most values like this would have tanked now.

So many things worked out perfect for me with this stealth bump. I spent $80 at Family Video on their buy 2 get 1 free game sale. I kept a few for myself and traded the rest to GS. The store here in WI does not do CSC, so ended up with MK11 for Switch, $25 XBL card, and have $360 in credit left.

Does this bonus trade credit for California apply for consoles too or is it only games? Also do they even list the bonus on the website anywhere because I don't see it

I know things re: MK11 got confusing today...at least it did for me.  

 

But in the end the B2G1 applied to the same transaction wherein the pre-existing preorder got paid off.  So I already had $5 on it a week ago.  So when I went in to pay off the other $55 (plus tax) I was able to B2G1 (switch games) in the same transaction.  Also did some trades in the same transaction.  

 

Went back at 9 p.m. and picked up the game...got the mask pre-order bonus but they were out of lunch tins.

No idea how you guys manage to get $500 worth of games for 80 bucks. Guess that's the benefit of living in the middle of nowhere so nobody is competing with you.

Did everyone else get either a mask or a tin and not both when picking up only one copy of the game. My local gs ran out of tins pretty surprised not a lot of people wanted the mask

Only masks and only if you mentioned it

Other option was a poster of Johnny cage that might as well have been a page slipped out of the weekly flyer, yet when I first arrived at 9:05 a dude walked out with a real 20” by 35” looking landscape poster, but that might’ve been tie in merch.

Never heard mention of a lunch box

Some stores talked about a raffle

It appears Sekiro and all switch games held values except only Mario Kart 8 which dropped to $25.

It looks like all Switch games now dropped to $25.

My store only had 5 lunchboxes and a bunch of facemasks. Sounds like that item was limited based on GS Reddit. I got 2 face masks as my wife was with and on a whim asked for one. Fairly certain it should be only 1 free item per preorder. I did not see the posters, but I think those were handed out after facemasks were gone.

It's very easy to do if you know what you're looking for, and I live in a major metro area

I didn't have any no csac stores, but made out ok. i paid off mk 11 for ps4/xb1/nsw (with gift receipts) on one pre-sell transaction along with 9 b2g1 switch games at one store.

 

next, i went to another store and paid off mk 11 for ps4/nsw (with gift receipts) on one pre-sell transaction along with a different set of 6 b2g1 switch games.

 

then, i went to a third store and traded all 15 nsw games and put $5 down on days gone for boost. lastly, picked up mk11 at the first store and lucked out with getting the tin and the mask. i'll pickup the other two pre-sells later this week.

 

that worked as expected, and I will figure out what I am keeping/gifting/returning after the b2g1 active offer drops on 4/29 and has been used.

 

As an aside, the third store had a jerk employee trying to force me to use all of the 20% boost towards the days gone pre-order. After some discussion and debate (POS or GTFO :D ), he decided to allow me to only put $5 down.

 

Anyone experience this before? I almost had to take my 15 switch trades to a fourth store...I almost exclusively trade during boosts and bumps and have never had to do this.

The limit was $500 cash before your account gets banned.


I have more than one account

I thought we confirmed that the b2g1 from MK11 only worked on one set? I'd have gotten more if I could.


Looks like he bought 5 total copies of MK11 to get 5 coupons.

Do you feel it’s worth the effort to do the B2G1F and trade in towards Days Gone?

Do you want to play Days Gone on release? For me, I'd say no because Days Gone is a first-party exclusive and will probably be $40 or less within 3-4 months.

I would use PUR points to buy Days Gone and then trade it back in 48 hours later after you take/redeem the preorder bonus items.

Got my MK11 and was only able to use 1 of the $10 rewards cash coupons.  System didn't allow more than 1

 

Store had plenty of masks and posters.  They said the the tins were the hot item in short supply

You can only use rewards coupons together if they are different denominations.  So like a $10, a $20, and a $50 will work fine together.

Was the mask cool?  I didn't even try to get on because I expected a plastic halloween style pos.

Thanks everyone for the tip on trading 1 day only here in California. Hard not to pass up dumping some backlog games for more than I had originally purchased them for.

That said..how are people racking up so much PUR points? Is PUR multiplier even higher for Elite than Pro? Did $123 in trade-ins yesterday and I think that results in almost 2500 points..not the much larger numbers people are talking about. 😕

Those of us with Elite get 30 points per dollar spent/traded vs 20. If you boomerang stuff (which was insane yesterday and during the weekend SB) you rack up points super quickly.
