How does 4/10 work if you have 5 games? Will they stay the same pricing?

no, must be in multiples of 4

No just thought it was interesting. I actually should have clarified I meant the suburbs.

I think he was wondering what you meant by the cases being marked 6/8

Oh there’s clearly someone in my area flipping games because why would someone have traded in multiple copies of Evolve just a few days ago

What's the worst a junior detective can do? Never encountered one, everyone in my area is either super nice or doesn't give two shits about anything. But... Can they like look up your trade history while they're checking you out and be like wtf?

Values are still jacked up though. If anyone does any Homefront/Killzone/Evolve trades today it would be cool if you could let me know if they still are 2.00 base.


Just traded them in and got 7.xx each

Does anyone know if the complete edition counts as a separate SKU in terms of trade bans? I just happen to own a copy of the complete edition that I want to trade.

yes it's separate

being the veteran flipper here, I'm surprised to see you asking about such a basic promo.

Yep, and also they can send a message to their LP saying "Hey, this guy seems shady." And then you can get a worse ban from LP than you would for just going over a limit.

Do those surveys people. Gamestop is very much a you scratch my back I'll scratch yours kind of place. Anything that keeps the employee out of the doghouse will get you looked upon favorably.

I've never had cause to buy more than 4 at a time lol. I'm only the veteran flipper because everyone else either left or got banned for making g-fuel jokes. I'm only average compared to my flipping predecessors. I just retained all the knowledge.

The reason people left is that flipping ain't what it used to be. Getting $7.20 for games like The Show 17, along with some decent low level boomerangs brought me back in briefly this weekend though.

Can confirm Evolve / Homefront / Killzone trade worked today (6/11/19). Got $7.20 a piece trade credit with a Pro account & the $5 trade bonus promo. Paid about $2.40 for each with the 4 for $10 deal. Prob gonna try to do one more set tomorrow. Will update tomorrow if I do.

I did it again today as well

I can double confirm that Horizon base does go for 6.39 for elite and trade at 9.80. So a nice little flip of the 4/10 games and horizon base a few times will just about pay for an E3 game 8-)

What do you guys get for the fourth game since only the ps4 version of evole and homefrotn got a base of $2

I try to get a base game of 1.00 but all the values are so wrong that those games are only .50 now. You can try and just get 2 of one of those 3 as well, but I try and raise as few eyebrows as possible.

I'm not going to push my luck on this promo anymore but I do have store credit to play around with. Is there anything you'd suggest me possibly picking up and holding onto for a possible July 4th promo?

They aren't going to ban you for buying more than one copy of the same game...

I buy multiple copies of games fairly frequently and I dont think anyone has ever questioned it. Almost everything has online multiplayer. People buy stuff to play multiplayer with others. Have bought a bunch of doubles over the years for my brother overseas, games are way more expensive in Europe.

I want to say there was a similar promo before where you had to buy 4 to get promo pricing, but it would still apply to anything over 4. I may be confusing this with a trade 6 promo though.

I wish my stores were like yours. I can't even buy two copies of a game without getting JD comments like 'oh, I didn't know you had that console. When did you get it? Was it from GameStop?'. Like chill out dudes.

July 4th promo used to be legendary. If I recall correctly flippageddon was a July 4th weekend promo. I don’t remember the last 2 being noteworthy though.

2017 was the big year, last year they ran the B2G1 and 70% trade bonus at the same time again but nuked the values. It was good for 3 hours as the B2G1 started at 6PM on Thursday (I think), but the next morning everything dropped.

They definitely made their loophole checker more thorough. Shit was so common just a few years ago. Even after flippagedon there were still decent GameStop to GameStop flips. Then it kinda just stopped like a year ago.

I bought below $5. Very happy with the past week.

Edit: too bad you can't buy stock with trade credit
