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.


It was there (I'd have noticed the 10% pro bonus missing too). First thing I do is grab my PUR card and DL when trading. Then it's assume the position and wait to be finger printed. 😀

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.

Just make sure you don't trade more than 4 of the same controller within the same 30 day period.  That's the way most people mess up on it (I lost count of Wii remotes a few years ago)

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?

They haven't gone above $30 base in quite some time.  Even during the last bump, they were $30 base before, during, and after.  To be on the safe side, I'd wait just to be sure

This is great for gamestop. Not great for everyone else.

Were you not able to return a game within 7 days for a full refund previously?

Not for opened new copies. (maybe if it was a gutted copy?)

I am confuse about this...so do i preorder it and do pick up online on the app or do i preorder this at the store to get the coupon? But I also want to get the 20 percent for trading in games towards it.

Pre-order it in store while you do your trades. You can put as little as $5 dollars down. That will trigger the bump. I am assuming the coupon will be generated after you pick up the game.

No, that's why they're supposed to put the sticker on those "new" copies.  If you open the sticker, it's like opening the shrink wrap.

this new policy screams gamestop re-selling "gutted" returns as "new" if they so choose lol

 

this will work out nicely for any games that can played to completion (and enjoyed) that aren't keepers

"Guaranteed to Love it" program. If you return the game within 48 hours of the game's launch you get your money back in the form of Trade-in Credit.


Note that you don't actually get ALL of your money back. It looks like any tax paid on a game is lost and not refunded. You just get a straight $59.99 credit.

Most new releases would also have some sort of bonus/promo, if you were trading a pre-owned game towards. Which means it would be worth looking into using that trade credit ($59.99) on some other game in which you would turn around and trade in towards that new game.

Overall, I suppose the program Gamestop is providing is a good option for consumers. If you bought a dud, it would nearly be impossible to sell it on the second hand market for $59.99 within those two days.

As far as I'm understanding, you're refunded trade credit in a trade transaction...so do you get the points for buying the game AND trading it in for $60? Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't see anywhere that said the game had to be paid for in cash so technically this could just be a vehicle for double points, and extra credit if you're allowed to use certs but still get the full value in trade. Can't wait to see how this one turns out. Just bring back epic rewards quest tbh

You wont be trading the game in, you'll be returning it. It's the same as if you're returning preowned ganes. You'll get points for buying, but they will be taken away when you return.

that memo clearly says it's a trade-in

Well it *clearly* won't work as a normal trade in.

Great way to convert PUR points to TC and get 2-3% back in points to boot.

Don't go into the Target Clearance thread with this post. You'll stir up pointless bickering.

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.

None of my trade points have posted since March 31st. Purchases show up fine. I also noticed that shortly towards the end if the day on the 31st, the PUR system went down for the rest of the day. It's possible they were related.

Hmm if you already pre ordered mk11 before this promo would you basically get the b2g1 free once u pick it up or u gotta pre order at this time?

Honestly gamestop’s new program ain’t bad especially for those who want to beat short games for $2-3 tax depending on where you live.

I doubt they'll do this for short games. It'll probably only be a few select games every couple months that need more than 2 days to finish.

$2-3 tax on $60? Where do you live? Cleveland, Ohio we pay 8% sales tax; on $60 that's $4.80. Redbox if you can actually find the game available would be a better deal than trying to take advantage of this promo.

Do you think the B2g1 coupon work on multiple sets?

Would be great in DE, as they have no sales tax

For the Mortal Kombat 11 B2G1 free on preorder, anybody have any idea how this works? Can we double dip on this?

 

1. I was thinking of preordering MK11

2. B2G1 free = Buy 3 switch games. 

3. Trade 3 switch games in for another preorder of MK11 (get an additional 20% trade)

4. Get another B2G1 free = Buy 3 switch games

4. Trading back in the 3 switch games and the extra MK11 copy.

 

I doubt it will work, but I'm keeping my hopes up.

You get the coupon after the game has been purchased... so obviously, they won't be taking preorders anymore.

For real. Theres a bunch of electronic and jewelry stores near the border that target PA residents. One jeweler advertises to come down to "tax-free Delaware."
