I wrote a negative review a few years ago too. I was returning a new sealed game at about 26 days after purchase. The csr said I only had 7 days to return and wouldnt budge. I walked outside and checked the back of the receipt and sure enough it was printed there for 30 days for unopened games. I went back in to show him and he said it was old receipt paper and wouldnt budge. I just left and returned it to another store about 1 mile away but burned him on the survey. The DM called me but I never returned the call.

 

I returned an item clearly within the return range and the employee, without even looking at the receipt or what I was returning, immediately told me that it was too late to return something from some Christmas sale that happened. He eventually processed the return when I showed him how what he said had no bearing on what I was returning. I wonder if they were ordered to deny all returns with that line.

If this is turning into negative survey story time, in 2017 the app said a Wii with Motion Plus adapter traded in for $30. The manager refused to match the app, and traded the Wii for $20 and the adapter separately for $2. I burned him on the survey, got a call and told the DL what happened, and there was a $15 gift card waiting at the store for me. Hilariously enough, I went to another store and used it toward the B2G1 that kickstarted Flipapalooza 2017.

I had a dude try to tell me they couldn't take returns on new products even within the 7 days. I showed him the back of the receipt with the policy clearly printed on it and he told me he'd 'let it go this time'. Like wtf

No Mario DS games either. Sucks cause Super Mario 64 was on last month's list and no bump occurred.

We could be in for another stealth tank but I hope not. Are there even any good promos to combine with a bump now? I've been holding out for a July promo...

With how late the mwtjune19 tag went up, maybe this is for next week? They way have moved back to last weekend of the month again... or they could be killing SBs altogether.

Wii Sports is only a $3 base.  I know some of the values jumped since last week but that could be attributed to the $5 bonus ending

If the GameStop Twitter/facebook mention a most wanted list later today, then this indeed is a “SB” weekend. They post that without fail every month.

I don't have a huge list right now, but the only change in the past couple of days for me is that MK11 for Switch went down a dollar.

Honestly, I'm pretty much tapped out of non-retro games to trade, but I do have some last gen stuff I want get rid of. Fingers crossed for a 50% trade boost in July.

So, i feel i have to share this experience. I had some Madcatz Gamecube controllers that i was trying to get rid of. I checked the mobile app and the only ones listed was the Wavebird and the Official Nintendo Gamecube controllers. I tried my luck and the girl behind the counter easily found a SKU for 3rd Party Gamecube Controllers. Each rang up for the $7.70. Funny thing is the Official Gamecube Controllers show a value of only $6.60. And for the record, i have Pro.

Gamestop typically has a "Most Wanted Trades" weekend once per month where a bunch of trade-in values are boosted, sometimes to a crazy-high amount. The fact that there are search results for mwtjune19 and no values went up today means that we can expect the MWT weekend for this month to start next Friday.

For all my misgivings with GameStop corporate, as well as their copious amounts of online astroturfing, I've never had a bad experience at a GS store. The employees in my district are rock-solid and I'm definitely thankful for that.

That line about "old receipt paper" beats it all, though. Jesus.

Oh gotcha. I was thinking something more along the lines of a sale. I'm currently purchasing all the Pokémon games that I didn't originally buy during that Gen.

Be careful about fake Pokémon carts. GameStop is full of them.

And if you don't know what to look for, there are Youtube videos on it

Also there are real but different region carts. Last order of HeartGold I got a swedish/Danish version, it even came with the manual.

Here's the ad for July 2018. It looks like the 50% trade boost started on the Sunday after the 4th of July holiday, so we're looking at the 7th if GS does this sale and promo again.

I have 6 Switch games to trade in and I have Crash preordered. What do you guys think? Wait for a better trade deal or trade these in now? I'm leaning on waiting until 4th of July sale but I dont want to be shafted in the future if the values stay low and a trade in deal doesnt come.

There is 0 reason to trade right now.

That person is bringing it up to get the extra 20% towards his purchase so there is a little incentive to.

That would be pretty silly when the 20% bonus deal lasts until 7/7, he has switch games to trade, and the stealth bump (with tons of switch titles on it) is most likely going to hit next weekend.
