someone has an XB1 console bundle up near me right now that I could profit $60 of store credit from with the current extra $25 promo but I'll let someone else have it since I'm good right now lol

Ha, I know the feeling. It's addicting, but it's also funny to see how people price things. For instance, there's a guy selling used Xbox One controllers for $40-$45. Umm, no. You can typically snag Xbox One controllers for $40 new from Amazon, Newegg etc.

yeah I'm looking at a Wii bundle right now with games that probably get around $15 store credit combined and they want $175 for it lol

HAHA, that's great. People are so out of touch. I like seeing the overpriced Switch bundles. There was a listing where the guy wanted $450-$475 for the lot. I think it came with the system, one game, and third party accessories. You might get $300-$325 max.

as bad as some of them are, there's some fantastic flips as well. Just gotta watch it throughout the day!

Lol, called back GS to see what happened with my trade in status and they are telling me the state of CA has stopped me from trading in for 90 days.
 
Edit: I did not trade in 4 or more of the same item in the last 30 days.


Did they tell you why?

I went to a few second hand stores and picked up 8 games for $10.  Ended up trading them in for $72 in credit.  Wii Sports alone goes for $12 credit.  Pretty crazy for one of the best selling games of all time.

my flips today got a profit of almost $80. I believe that brings my total from this one place to over $220 in two trips this week.

Has anyone ever traded in a retro PC game? I was denied Croc on PS1 and I just looked it up it's the PC version.

That's actually the Saturn version.  I traded it the other day and it did not get the $5 bump.  I was happy with the $4.80 as it was heavily scratched and did not work.

I had one game today, Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories on GBA that got the bump even though it was only worth $1.  It was definitely worth at least $2 when I added it to my list on wednesday. And oddly it shows up twice when you search for its value on the desktop site, both entries say $1. But I got $6.20 today.  Unless he just added the promo to it manually because I've traded in so much stuff lately.

Bought Wii U on Saturday, 7 day return policy means I can return that this Saturday until store closes?

The Wii U is cool and everything, but gamepad battery is like 1 hour. A pain to get into hombrew and overall gamepad not that impressive.

Still undecided.

 

Have a decent PC that can run gamecube/wii games in higher resolution and better picture. Need to think hard about this.

Friday. Some Gamestop employees count the day of purchase as day 1.

Fuck, so I'm screwed now...

I did search a bit and seems day to day. So Mon to Mon.

Same timezone for me. Should be fine returning, but don't want them to try to BS me.

Here's the relevant convo...

 

"Waits till 8:45 on 7th day to say oh i just didnt like it"

 

"You mean 8th day
They never remember to count the day they bought it"
 
"Hahahaha im so strict if its a day off NOPE
Trading that bitch in for cash"
 
"My favorite is when someone buys on the 10th and wants to return on the 17th
Sorry sir, day seven was yesterday"
 

"Naw man I bought it on the 10 it been 7"

 

"Exactly. The tenth is day 1. That makes the 17th day 8.
I can get you $18 right now tho"

 

If they really want to play like that, 7 days is 168 hours....

gamestop are you fucking kidding me with this website

 

 

 

did you really fall for the "nothing but tiles and 85% white space, you know like an app!" meme this hard?

 

 

 

did you actually classify dlc and microtransactions as "games" now in search results? do you really believe that 3 items listed need to take up 50% of the screen? and that you have the condition and price written in a tiny bar that takes up 1/20th of the space below the item picture you put there?

 

 

im a fan of blocking the people who see the word "gamestop" and come out of the woodwork to post about stocks or some garbage clickbait video on why gamestop is doomed but this is an honest reason for me to say that my business done with gamestop will reduce. and you cant even say its more stable since now the site will simply never load on chrome at all ever. this is a fucking embarrassment and im baffled as much as i am pissed.

I've seen that on the subreddit too. I'd trade for cash, burn them on the survey and get the difference back from the DM.

So since moving to the middle of nowhere I have way less sources for cheap trade fodder. Any good Redbox flips currently?

i feel you. sonic mania plus (ps4) is $12.99 near me and trades for $17 ($12 base +$5). that's about as good as it gets... i picked up shadow of the tomb raider (X1) earlier this week for $9.99 and flipped it for $18 but they nerfed the TIV shortly after.

 

there are several break-even trades if you just want those sweet, sweet points lol - DMC5, RDR2, Divsion 2, Just Cause 4, PES 2018 to name a few

Yep, seems like I find more fodder for GS flips and eBay sales (both gaming and non-gaming) on FB these days than at yard sales.

Think I will trade the Switch games that probably won’t hold their values until the next SB/50% trade in like MUA3 and Pokémon and hold onto MM2 and NSMU

I am thinking I need to trade my copy in as well. $38 is solid for Let's Go. I haven't played it in quite some time and honestly liked it more than I thought I would, but it's just way too easy even for a Pokemon game and I didn't like the Pokemon Go style mechanics. 

I derped and read it as $38 base, with the 3+5 tacked on top. Not worth it to me for $38 since I can just sell it on eBay with the pokeball for $85+. Still have the steelbook from when BB was handing them out for a dollar, so tacking that on and it'd go for $120. GS can't beat that lol.

Got home last night only to open up my games and see that they forgot to put the disks in the cases. FFS!!!! 

 

Hell, I was tired enough not to notice either so I don't particularly blame the new guy for having a brain-fart. I just hope nobody gives me shit when I come in again today to get the actual games I bought (and do more trade-ins while I'm at it.)

I always make sure and check my games while I'm in the store. A few times they have given me the wrong game inside a different case or they forget to give me the second disc in a 2 disc game. Let this be a lesson to everyone else on here, always check your games before leaving the store.
