Anyone here ever snipe gamestop from a trade in? I did today while going in to flip shit, didn't feel too bad about it but kinda did as i go there a good amount. Dude came in with a couple old systems, gamecube n64 ps1 360 ps3 and I saw a couple retro things I wanted. Saw he wasnt gonna trade the ps3 cause he had no cords for it and they would give him like $1 after he had to purchase the cables to trade it in so I offered to buy it off him. left my number in his phone and called it as i pretended to not have any cash on me. As soon as I left the store I text the guy saying yo I want all that shit tell them this other game store offered you more $$ and ill give you a better deal. He agree to a deal for $300 and we meet up in the parking lot 20 mins later. I didnt even realize he had a switch and like 7 AAA titles and 4 ok ones as well lol. He said that he looked up the trade in values online last night and it was roughly $300 for everything. Thank god gamestop tanked trade in values for switch games recently. first time sniping from a gamestop and it was awesome! yolo.

If you can use them on digital currency, then I guess I'll try to use it by then. 

Yes you can.

Thought I'd also mention that
GS wants $10 shipping for the Cyberpunk 2077 CE preorder even with Elite. $250 CE and no free shipping. Lmao gg

I haven't heard anything. Just speculating that today would have been a good time to announce a bundle for the Fall for like Pokémon or Animal Crossing (which got pushed back.)


WSJ reported today Nintendo is moving their Switch production to Taiwan to avoid US tariffs, which is likely what’s causing the delay in new hardware revisions.

I have a feeling that is why they didn’t talk about much past September. They’ll probably do a late summer Direct to introduce new consoles/bundles for the holiday.

I didn't try, but my store had a huge sign on the front door.  Didn't look for an end date on it, though

Forgot to mention a couple of stores I went to still had signage for $10 clearance games and one of the other long dead clearance sales. Not sure if the manager is still honoring it on his own to clear space or they're really that far out of the loop.

I got irritated when an employee swore up and down that the plushes were still $2, but I got distracted and didn't notice the 8-bit Protoman rang up as $6.97 until I got home.

I think $10 for a CE is reasonable... try adding the Collection of Mana to your cart and check the shipping prices there. $8 shipping for a fucking Switch game.

Flipped two sets of Homefront/Killzone/Evolve yesterday & today, but I have all the same people working at all the same locations so I think I'm done. It was fun turning games from $2.25 into $7.20 so I can't complain too much. Haven't flipped in a while, but needed to pay off some pre-orders lol so I'm very thankful for y'all who gave the tip! I really do appreciate it! (I'm a poor grad student, with just a part time job haha)

Can you go to your local GameStop and swap for a complete condition?

I bought a few PS4 games (God of War, Spider-man, Tetris Effect) from their website and they all arrived in incomplete (disc only in GS genetic case) condition.


Thanks

doesn't hurt to ask.

I don't know the 4/10 sales end date but people repeatedly posted the 5$ extra ends the 16th.

Traded in 12 (kz/evolve/hm) on Monday and 12 today. I have 6 stores to choose from on my commute to work. I'll probably trade whatever I can everyday until the promotions end.

This promotion and the buy a console($2) get 25% off preowned games(which comes out to 32.5% off w/ pro) have allowed me to build up my Switch library.

Thanks CAG. Flippageddon 2.5?

Does GS accept a PS3 with a no name brand controller? Do I need to give them the PS3 usb controller cable too?

You are aware you can only trade 4 copies of each title right?

You are better off selling it on eBay as "console only"

LOL. I hope you have multiple accounts because getting trade banned for $120... is not something to brag about. If not, I hope those 4-ish switch games you got were worth it.

...and it is even sadder because this is one of the few flips where we can get literally anyone else to do the trades for us and only be out like 20-40 cents.

lol I'm a CAG veteran. Y'all know it is required that everyone in the family have a gamestop account. The wife, son, daughter and me. Also, the 10% only nets $0.20. For that I just trade with no phone number.

Done with my run today. Turned $80 into $160.

One store had close to 10 copies of home front in the drawer.

More like Miniflippageddon. Profits are small but the % is large.
