Anyone else hear that Elite level is going away starting tomorrow?

I was told that a message was sent out to the staff to inform them that starting tomorrow you cannot sign up for or renew Elite. Anyone else hear this?

You will receive the base value times 1.5 unless you have a membership.

Thank you!

I wonder what happens to our current memberships? Should I renew now?

Yes but I think it just give you a coupon to renew in store.

My elite is up in October so I may just go renew today just in case.

Theres a reddit post about it with people deflecting that it's going away, but I don't see any firm 'no it is not' responses

Elite pro is great for trades and in-store purchases but it made online purchases more expensive. I used to be able to get games 26% off online before Elite

I was told that it will be similar to BBY GCU program, that starting tomorrow there will be no more sign ups or extensions allowed.

However, they will honor the benefits of all existing memberships. So if you fear it may go away, you might want to renew today if you still can.

I know this isn't really the place to ask, but since some of you have done it, hopefully I can get an answer. If I want to trade in my PS4 Pro for the new Spiderman one, how do i transfer everything over since I won't have both systems at the same time?

Will they just go back to offering Pro memberships only or are they killing memberships all together, like GCU? That's a bad sign from GS because that's part of their main income (bugging people to sign up for Pro memberships).

No way they eliminate the Pro. They've had that for as long as I can remember.

The Elite was to compete with GCU and Prime. I guess it didnt do for them what they hoped (and Best Buy killed GCU) so theyre killing it.

Didn’t want to risk it. Ran a quick errand and renewed. Even if it’s fake no harm

You still need to go in store to renew with points right?

 

Sadly I'm on the east coast and can't go in till tomorrow -_-

 

Edit: just went back and re-read posts, it is still just a coupon crap.

Just renewed on Friday so if they do pull it I'm good. Bought a lot of newer used games for $44 that I wouldn't have bought for $49. Yes it's only $5 but it adds up.

Mine expires November 2019... I feel like that's long enough, but then again they might start giving good TIV's after most people's memberships have lapsed a year from now today... in which case I'd only have like 2 months of good trades left.

Just saw that posting. Seems like there would be more noise if this was going to happen, but who knows. I'm good until 2021 and the coupon only works on one set so I'm not sure I want to fork over another 30,000 points on the chance that it's true.

my elite expires in october, i have a link on my poweruprewards.com account page to renew online, is that going to end up just giving me a coupon? it seems like i used that once when it was pro but i cant remember.

you could maybe do it over the phone with a store in Cali?  I just went to renew mine, just in case, and got all the way to the store before realizing it was Sunday and they were closed already.  debating trying to call a store.

I haven't heard anything about Elite pro going away. I worked today and there wasn't any info sent to us about that.

I just renewed in store, they definitely didn't indicate that it was ending but this employee isn't in the know so that's not surprising if they didn't know.i hope it doesn't end but I'm set for another tear in case the axe it.

Got some conflicting info after two trades today at GS.  One employee told me they're limiting trades of the same item to 2 per 30 days now.  When I asked about this at the next GS, the employee told me that's not true, but that I could only trade 5 of the same item LIFETIME.  Doubt either one is true, because I heard nothing about it before today.  Anyone heard anything like this?

Good idea, I did want to use points though, since I have an insane amount of them. Tell me if it works out for you.

 

Unrelated to the current stuff, is anyone able to checkout on the gamestop website?

 

I can get to choose shipping option, however I can't do anything from there, the page just doesn't do anything when I click next.

 

The app does work but I can't seem to use trade credit from a card.

I was selling a pro a couple months ago and I was regularly getting offers for like $200, and requests to trade for knives and hand guns. -_-


My favorite lowballs was a guy trying to trade me his dog for a PS3 (should’ve taken it and gotten it a better home) or someone offering $1 for an iPhone 6S plus I had when the 7’s just came out that said “trading for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus with cash on my end”

I buy on local sites all the time but rarely sell there
