wtf did Gamestop do to their website?   It's now more annoying to navigate through to find stuff now.

Pro no longer nets you 10% bonus for trades they have made some massive changes apparently. I still have Elite Pro but I wonder if the 20% bonus applies.

Right? Also everything is so large and takes up more space which means more scrolling. Why is it when ever websites get a massive redesign its always a massive step back?

The 20% worked for me yesterday

The homepage shows that the $5 bonus is only supposed to apply to XB1, PS4, and Switch games. When you click on it, it still shows the banner for all games. Don't procrastinate trading in last-gen games.

Might be a screw up on their part for the new layout.  As the PUR page still mentions an extra 10% on trades.

 

One thing I'm finding a pain is finding stuff locally.  Now you have to go on the product page to find out if any store in the area has a copy instead of the option being there looking through a certain category.

Traded in 3 scratched to hell Sega Saturn games. $0 refurb on all (expected) but did NOT receive the $5 bonus on any.

Were the base values at least $2? Someone earlier reported getting the bonus on their retro game trades

What's the point of having Pro membership now? A measly 10% off used games isn't worth $15/year to me. I'm so glad I kept declining their recommendations to use my points on it now; I didn't think they would remove anything, but I also rarely do business with them to make it worth it.

 

I seriously hope it's just an error from the website redesign though.

I don't know what you all are talking about. The new site looks and functions so much better than that archaic buggy mess they've been using forever.

 

Ughhhh... Nevermind. You can't filter out unavailable items. Trash.

10% bonus for PRO is showing for me on the site, it wasn't earlier. Also, on the saved trades page,it currently puts the Cash value where it says Trade Credit Value. So far no drops for the remaining games I plan on trading in today. I think there are a few kinks they need to work out with the site.

 

One nice thing is that you can now purchase for pickup at store and use CAG16. But, CAG16 only applies up to 3 items, so that has been nerfed a bit. Also, for store pickup, it only allows up to 3 items per transaction.

If you're like me and were getting the header request too large error when going to Gamestop.com, you need to clear cookies.

 

Instructions on how to do it for just one site:

Shit, hope this isn't a glitch and it works on older games. I got a ton of old, cheap games that aren't worth selling on eBay but might meet the $2 min on GS to be traded in for the $5 bonus. 

 

Anyone know why you can't check TIVs for PS2 games or PSP games on Gamestop?

 

EDIT* Actually seems like some GBA and N64 games aren't showing up either. And some PS2 games do show up.

They don't take all games for those systems.  It's just a select few, best bet is to search "retro" in the trade-in page and narrow it down from there on what they take. 

 

As for PSP, not sure.  Can't find a way to search, even though they are selling a few PSP games online.  There's no way to search trade-ins for it.

Turns out that I hit my limit for the month during Prestige Day. Sooooooo time to wait for LP to get back to me, hopefully I can get my limit bumped so I can still trade in the games later this week.

Anyone try trading in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition? There doesn't seem to be a trade in value for this game.


It’s just Street Fighter V as trade b/c all the content is a code & not on disc.

PSP games haven't been taken for years and years.

And PS2 games they only take stuff with a decent amount of demand.

The new website and app are not much improved at all. I can’t find new PS4 or Switch consoles, and it’s difficult to see a used game’s inventory for stores around me on the website.

Well if they break the app and website, I guess you'll just have to go in store to find things! Riiiiiight?

That’s one strategy lol the $225 trade credit for the original Switch makes it tempting to upgrade to the revision for $75.

If I wasn't buying a Switch Lite, I'd probably jump on that deal.

I might just do this as my Switch gets noisy right at startup and I've put hundreds & hundreds of hours into it.

 

That being said, I'm unaware if the Switch requires any transferring between units to preserve data or if it's all just tied to the account...

Wow the new website is trash. so inconvenient. whoever decided that revision should definitely be fired.
