My local Gamestop is now a part of the test market for price matching games. I was told they only price match local competitors like Walmart, Target and Best Buy. They priced matched Walmart for Dragon Quest Builders 2 at $49.96.

If you don't mind me asking, where are you located?

Southeast Missouri, from what I gathered my store is going to be a test store for a lot of the new business tactics. They have little flyers at the checkout that has some of the price match policy on them. If I head back that way today I'll try to grab one and post a pic.

To the person talking about selling fees they have times where there are none like this current month for 5 items.  If you use ebay like you say then you shouldn't be omitting information.  I am aware that the period for this month has already passed of course.

I'll give credit where credit's due to GameStop. Price-matching is surprisingly rare these days, as many retailers have either shitcanned their price-match programs or gone out of business. With that in mind, seeing GS give it a go is actually rad.

I hope they expand it beyond their test stores. I'll shop there much more if they do.

they also shouldnt be claiming flat rate priority shipping is $3, with the price increase in june you can barely get first class mail shipped for $3.

I saw someone mention a 50% trade promo going on right now. I didn't see anything online about it and just saw the usual "Trade towards 'x' game and get 20% extra trade credit" right now. Looking to dump some stuff I am not playing to pick up MUA3 and put some money towards Fire Emblem as well.

Must be YMMV. I didn't receive any such offer. What did you click to get that offer?

Unless you're talking about some magical super-targeted promotion eBay decided to do for you that wouldn't be relevant for anyone else in this thread, it was 50% off FVF for 5 items selling at $50 or more. Or if you meant insertion fees, you get 50 of those free every month. Not free FVF. If you're going to accuse somebody else of misinformation, it helps not to get it wrong yourself.

 

EDIT: Just looking it up, the last instance I can find of them offering zero FVF at all was back in 2015, and that was specifically for some European sellers. So even if you saw something rare like that in your messages, it's definitely not a regular thing and therefore irrelevant, anyway.

Right on. I see it now, so I'll have to buy some cheap pre-owned game to get the additional 50% it looks like which is fine. Need to get rid of Anthem before it drops more. Thought they'd possibly turn that game around and bought it for $20 and they have not turned it around and the game is pretty much dead at this point.

Probably not. Since the game is being published by Nintendo. For whatever reason Nintendo typically has a hardline on releasing their games before midnight and Gamestop no longer does midnight releases and instead do the 9pm est. releases. My store also usually call everyone to let them know if they are doing a late night release and I have not received a call. I am going to go pay my pre-order off tonight though so maybe I will get lucky and walk away with the game tonight too.

I may be totally late on this but why is the og phat PS2 trading for more than a slim ps2, or even more than an 80gb PS3 at the moment?

Usually, when you call someone out for "if you use ebay like you SAY" you should really reply to them so that they can respond. I don't know if you are aware, but different offers are sent to different people at different times. I don't have any ZERO selling fee offer for 5 items.

 

Do you mean save 50% on selling fees on 5 items over $50 if listed before July 20th? Because I have that one. How many current gen used video games can be sold for more than $50. So it doesn't apply whatsoever to what we were discussing in here. And it just goes from 10% to 5% eBay selling fees. Yes, it is nice, but it's maybe once a month. And it is always always always $50, $100, or more items. It never will apply to a $30 or $40 video game. And 5% selling fee saved from my previous example, Resident Evil 2, would still be LOWER on eBay than trading in to GameStop this week. It's sad, really.

 

Any other questions testing whether I actually know my eBay shit?

You definitely know your shit. I spent about 3 hours this week looking up the values of a bunch of my games on gamestops trade-in site.  I compared that value to the current price on ebay, minus $4 for shipping, and the 13% in fees and if it was even close, I took it to gamestop. Out of the hundred and hundreds of games I want to sell, I found 31 that were worth taking to GS. Okay, so now I'm stuck with $300+ in trade credit. What am i going to do with that? well if i was desperate for the cash i could use it on gift cards for BK, Taco Bell, Uber, Subway, whatever...basically same as cash.  But i use it on the 3 for $15 sales, B2G1, the clearance collectibles, the occasional game that isn't priced at market value for some reason, etc.  Ebay, GS, pricecharting, facebook, offerup...all different tools for selling under different circumstances.

And, my elite has paid for itself ten times over at least. actually, $1135 this year according to the last receipt. I'm going to cry when my Elite expires.

If it's the same situation as it was a couple years ago, they're just shipping them off to China to have the gold stripped from the processor and such.

" I don't know if you are aware, but different offers are sent to different people at different times."

 

I wasn't aware it was one of those user targeted specific offers and is apparently not common since you and another poster both mentioned having not gotten one.  I get them semi frequently for whatever reason..

Is there a reason my pro b2g1 expired so fast (within a month) I read another Reddit post his coupon doesn't expire for 2 months since he renewed this month. Could I email GameStop and would they issue me another coupon?

If GameStop responded to emails with any regularity then you might have a shot. You'd have better luck calling or on Twitter

I would call for that one. How fast your coupon expires depends on when you redeem it. The have them in batches and anyone who redeems in a certain time frame gets one from that batch.

I signed back up on June 28th and the coupon is good until the end of September. On a side note I have done 3 of the 3 for $15 and each time they have tried to add the coupon without me telling them to. I keep having to explain that it is cheaper if I do not use the coupon. One guy was arguing with me that it would be better to use it. Do they get credit for getting you to use your active offers now? I miss the days where you had more controll over your active offers and you had to fight to them to scan your phone.
