Is the weekly ad still on the website I don't see it? Wanted to get the PS4 gold headset bundle with the $34.99 worth of Fortnite crap for my son's b-day but can't find it. Think it releases today and I wanted to see if stores had it near me yet.

Should I bother calling CS about my points? It's been more than a week since Prestige Day, but I don't need them looking carefully at my transactions.


Scared to talk to people? I mean the obvious answer is yes, but does it really matter what people say?

be aware on the new site. when you look at the items in your "saved trades" it shows a different value than when you click on the actual item. I was worried because a bunch of items i added yesterday that were $2 were now showing up at $1.76, but when you click on it, $1.76 is just the elite cash value, the base credit value is still at $2.

Got my Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance from when it was in stock online the other day. Came with the case but no manual...can’t complain for $77 shipped (elite plus CAG16), all of which came from flipping over the 4th of July B2G1 deal. Just need to find the manual now.

I called around a few stores that had it in stock and found one in Arlington, TX that had the case and manual. Sent a friend that lives there to buy it. Used my elite and 20% off birth day coupon to get it for like $45 complete. But then they talked my friend into the protection, so that cost me another $3 or whatever.

How much could I sell the fortnite stuff for?

Want to buy $100 sony headset and sell the fornite pack to get some money back.

 

Could only find DS4 bundle:

My PUR reverted to Pro, had 2 years of Elite left -_-

What makes you think that? Mine still shows up as Elite on the website.

 

edit: it doesnt show elite on the trade-in value but it does say it on the top right of the screen.

I would think you could get at least $25 from someone who likes fortnite. Maybe more but I wouldn't know.

Going to assume they will add Headset bundle later today, DS4 bundle already up.

Anyone having issues logging in?

Site says password is wrong, but I'm 99% sure it's correct.

I keep buy cheaper headsets for him but he breaks the wired ones. Right now he's using the one that plugs in the controller that comes with the PS4. Figured a wireless one will be better, think he snags the wires or something. I have the 500 Million Headset and it's been great.

Anyone else try retro yet with the $5 promo? I've seen some conflicting answers with some saying it worked for them and others saying it didn't.

Retro is still getting the $5 bonus as of a few hours ago. Traded in NES, SNES, PS1 and PS2 games and they all got it.

I traded GameCube, N64, and genesis. The bonus applied for each console. The game advisers were surprised because they were told it was only supposed to apply to xbone, switch, and PS4. I traded in 360, PS3, Vita, and 3ds and bonus applied to those as well. Trade tonight!

I worded that poorly. I traded in games for gamecube, n64 and genesis. Not consoles. bonus applied to all the games I traded in

Need advice buying digital currency. If something on the Xbox game store costs $9.99 will I be able to buy it with the $10 GS reward thing, or even trade cred, or will I end up having to type my damn PayPal stuff in anyway to cover tax (or overbuy $20 worth of store credit)?

Edit: or if there is a way to temporarily change my location to Delaware/Oregon like you can with the eShop?

When I traded in, was my account with Pro (not Elite Pro) listed

You will need to pay for the taxes on XBL. If you buy a game card at Gamestop tho...not sure.

Think you've got the Saturn and PS1 versions mixed up. Saturn goes for way more.

Is anyone trading in their Switch to get the new one?  $200 + $25 bonus trade-in.  $75 to upgrade, worth it?

Website is really screwed up on in-store inventory.  Went to use a $5 certificate to get a free $5 Wii U game.   The store had 4 of the games that the website said wasn't in stock there.   Employee also said the new system is screwing with pre-orders too.  So keep an eye on them if you have any.

 

You will need to pay for the taxes on XBL. If you buy a game card at Gamestop tho...not sure.

If it's a card with a code for the game, there will be tax on it.  If it's a XBL currency card, then no, he will pay tax when he purchases it on XBL.

Heck, the website won't even load on Firefox for me.  It's ok on Chrome.  What an eyesore.

I’d consider it if I didn’t only have specialty joycons (mario edition red and splatoon pink/green)
