Were you the original purchaser or did you get it secondhand? Hopefully the serial number didn't ping as reported stolen or a similar issue. Pawn laws are legitimate, as is a pawn record that law enforcement has access to and reference. I'm sure it's state-specific, but having worked previously in LE, this is a real thing.

Having worked at Gamestop and another similar store called Disc Replay I can say that pawn laws do vary state to state, but almost all of them will require items like game systems have a valid serial number. If he got the PS4 secondhand there is a good chance it could have been stolen and is being flagged, but usually, that wouldn't prevent them from taking the trade. Usually, we'd take the trade in order to obtain the persons information so we could report the info to the authorities and they could investigate it.

I know it’s been discussed in the old thread before, but thought I would see if anyone still here knows. What’s the highest amount you can put on a Southwest Gift Card from GameStop in one transaction?

A little off-topic, but those who flip to BB every so often. You can no longer buy other merchant gift cards with BB GC  :cry:  RIP

Be sure to review the terms and conditions for Southwest gift cards. It can be tricky if you have a bunch of them you are trying to use at once...

FIFA 18 got a 2 dollar bump and has a base of 20. Have not played it in a while. Going to include as part of my stack of 6 games to trade towards the promo. Just a couple of months till fifa 19 anyway.

Have a dilemma. Trade in FIFA 18 PS4 with the 50% promo and get FIFA 18 for the Switch on sale now or wait until FIFA 19 Switch releases? FIFA 19 for the Switch will be better because of engine/gameplay refinements and it'll have the UEFA Champions League. But FIFA 18 has the World Cup update.

That’s a good point. I think the limit is 2 cards per travelor. So putting a high number on a single card is a good idea.

I don't play sports titles, but I would imagine it is best to buy FIFA 19 as close to launch as possible, and then wait for a FIFA 18 fire sale for the world cup stuff.

10 of my games got stealth bumped.  Only two titles dropped (Shadow of War, and The Evil Within 2). 

Overall that equals to $36 more TIC, or 21.59% increase.  Glad I waited.

 

I'm gonna cash in this weekend.  Not gonna risk waiting until the next.

What's the phrase/code to search with to see the stealth bump affected games?

Whatever happened to the e3 50% coupon thing? Was it a generic code? Did the person who said they were gonna post it get banned?

I pre-ordered COD4 on the 15th and Spider-Man and RDR on the 12th.  Still no code in my email or offers and the Facebook page indicated the 21st. I called customer service earlier today, but the csr kept asking if my game was broken even though I explained my issue step by step.  So I hung up.  They also didn't call back despite first asking for my phone number in case of disconnection. I have like $1500 in trades to bring in, double points would be nice.

 

I posted this assuming you were talking about the double points code but am not so sure on re-reading.

Here's (hopefully) the correct link for June's most wanted trades:

I didn't even know a code existed for stealth bumped games.  I just went through my excel sheet and looked each one up individually, to check for changes.  

 

That code may not include all games that got a bump.  I don't see AC: Origins (PS4) through that mwtjune18 link, but that title got a bump from $10 base to $13

That's a shame. They may be able to look up the purchase if you have a receipt or know the date it was purchased on.

"Is it an actual PS4?"

 

What did she see when she scanned the S/N?  That sounds really weird.

the  ONLY think i can think of is i bought the system while i was in new jersey and i live in florida now. as soon as i walked to the counter she gave a big sigh  and from that point im pretty sure i was racially profiled (as dumb as it sounds) i did not feel right as soon as i walked in,  like i knew this was not gonna be a smooth transaction. and the store was not busy i was the only customer at the moment.

A Gamestop employee "racially profiling" you by denying a large dollar trade that will help boost their individual numbers makes zero sense whatsoever. I live in Florida as well and that employee would get fired if they knowingly took in a trade for a serial number that pinged as stolen. They were probably just uncomfortable with telling you that you had merchandise that was labeled as stolen. Also just a heads up anywhere you go that does trades or pawns in Florida will require you to leave your fingerprint and mug shot as well as sign an affidavit. So if you are trying to unload a stolen PS4 good luck. I'm not saying you are but that fact you made a profile earlier this week apparently specifically to post that in this thread is questionable.

That's okay. Double points should show up I'm a week or so and say "points adjuatment" or something to that effect.

The e3 thing was different; had to go to e3 and donate some games to get a coupon that was 50% extra tic and b2g1.

I used a B2G1 coupon today that I received earlier this month for creating a new Elite account.  It worked on 3 sets.  Just wanted to share.

Do you know if that is the limit, or was that how many you tried?

That's the guy who said he would get more trade value for a PS4 as a non-Pro member than as a Pro member, when there's no difference for hardware.

That is the max I tried. I started at 2 sets and ended up at 3. I assume more would work the most I have ever purchased was 4 sets earlier in the year. I guess YMMV.

I can't usually get the employees to scan more than 1 b2g1 set, though the times I have recently it's only worked on 1 set. Seems pretty random.

Im back in gamestop talking to the manager now. Trust me i didnt steal anything and ive done the fingerprint many times already. No picture tho. But they are handling it since she didnt feel like it. As i said before she looked at me and sighed at me like here we go. Anyway everything is cleared up i have my days of play ps4 and a 25 dolla psn card and fallout 4.
