I finally upgraded my DS to a 2DS lol.
 
Just flipped 10 games that I bought ($3-6 each) from the thrift stores this past year for $133 store credit. I then used the credit plus $25 (includes a pro membership renewal) on a 2DS XL.

Going to flip the games below tomorrow which I got all from the thrift stores.

Bruh. Platinum and Diamond alone could net nearly double that for cart only. 

 

I would not be as blaisé about the additional stack, there's money to be had there.

Not to sound condescending or anything, but you are a total fool if you trade those games in

Typical gamestop.... “pre-owned” yet clearly has a “new” tag on it.
So new is probably $1.00 pre-owned is $6, pre-owned in stock.

Pokemon Platinum and Fire Emblem... My heart breaks seeing you trade those in. I'd have given you $50 for each.

is it a code on the receipt? just bought a 500 million headset.

No code on the receipt, the box has a sticker on it that says "Neo Versa bundle" or something. The new bundle comes in black or white. Haven't opened it because it's wrapped for my son's b-day.

$10 coupon off my next order with no minimum restrictions. Last time it was $5 with a minimum purchase of $10 or $10 with a minimum purchase of $20.

 

It says offer is online only, but I wonder how the new "Pay Now" with pickup effects that. I will test it out later.

 

Also, not valid with other offers (probably can't stack these coupons), not valid on consoles, pre-orders, bundles, special editions, gift cards (curious if this includes PSN/eShop/XBL), or DLC. 

 

Edit: I just cross-referenced the order numbers in the emails send and it was for online orders only. Nothing for the pick ups.

 

Edit 2: Cannot stack codes. Also, it reduces your 10% off for Pro or cag16.

2 codes will only work if you have 2 items in your cart to discount

No, they won't.

 

Edit: It looks like even if you got multiple codes, only one can be redeemed. None of the other ones work now. "This coupon cannot be added to your cart"

In the app I successfully added both codes with 2 items in cart and under summary it shows -$20 discount, just added a 3rd item and now the 3rd code I have is added

Did anyone trade anything in yesterday and not get points today? Looking over my account, that seems to be the case. Not sure if they did away with them or there's some other issue going on.

lol calm down you guys. The discs are in bad condition (mad scratches) and un-tested. Yeah I know I could have resurfaced the disc but I don't have the tools and time to do them. Those pokemon ds games I traded-in are fake cartridges (after google searching the serial #) but it works and plays fine. I doubt any of you guys would want them here so I flip them to gamestop and I'm surprised GS took them. These games I'm about to trade-in are in badly shape too and incomplete (no manual) and I already own them in my personal collection. I literally got all of these from the thrift stores for about $3-$6 each.

Polluting the world with more Pokemon fakes is pretty gross. I wouldn't knowingly trade in a fake, but that's just me.

So I ended up cancelling my first order with the only coupon I could use. The code wouldn't work again. Then I tried the other coupons and I got the "this coupon cannot be added to your cart" message.

 

So I call up Customer Service and the very nice person remedies this by giving me 40k points.

Does anyone know if Gamestop has gift cards to Longhorn Steakhouse or would something like that vary by store? I've never used credit to get a gift card outside of video game currency, so I have no idea what they even offer lol

Yeah, some games can just be a liability to sell, even if they're generally valuable. I traded in copies of Super Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion (GCN) for $20 and $15 respectively, plus a Pro bump. These are coveted games, but these copies were beaten to hell, had writing on the disc and case, lacked the manuals and were at risk of having playback issues. I was content to get what I got for them, especially since I got them for pennies on the dollar in the first place. 

 

On a related note - apparently retro games are immune to refurb fees? This might be common knowledge, but it surprised me.

So i I trade in the old switch do I have to buy the new one as part of the deal?

 

Or can I hold on to the $225 for later when switch price has some sort of promo?

 

Would you all recommend recommending upgrading from old to new for basically $75 pus tax at this time?

But yeah, I agree with this and wouldn't trade in fakes. It's not the end of the world, and I'm not about to stone anybody for doing it, but it's not a good look either. 

 

I know "It's just GameStop," but they're extremely unlikely to catch or write-off bootlegs, and anybody buying a Pokemon DS game from GS is gonna be paying a mint. The fact that they're pretty likely to receive a bootleg is a bummer.

Trading in known fakes/boots is a garbage-person move and is far more egregious than some misinformed trading.

I think it's regional, maybe district based and for the most part, chain restaurants.

Ive seen so many posts on these forums about the fake games, or the shitty wii u games, or whatever and here you have this guy contributing to the same thing people have complained about. You give them junk and then expect gold in return. I guess since its gamestop its just cool to do scummy things to them. Your actually disgusting.

I see your point (and it's funny), but this in particular is about the customers rather than GameStop itself. Pokemon has a huge casual audience, and these fans are less likely to distinguish bootlegs from the genuine article... or even know that bootlegs are an issue. This could screw them over if they ever try to sell their copy on the secondhand market, if the save battery is on some bull Fuck , etc. Nasty surprises are never fun, especially when they're long after the return period.
