Can confirm posts from yesterday that $25 PSN GC was still purchasable via TC. Also used a $5 cert since I was roughly that much short for 3x. Now if only Ghost of a Tale would finally go on sale. . .

I don't think the new Pro membership is supposed to impress people used to working the system.   :)

 

IT's supposed to make GS more money.  Make it easier to communicate the value of the membership by making the discount concrete.  $5 is always $5.  Their working theory is this is more attractive to and easier to understand for the average customer.

The thing I love about my store is that the employees even love this promo. They can't wait to get paid tomorrow to get out and find some deals themselves before it ends

Make sure to choose accessories and search for move. $20 base, which was $34 during CSAC for non-CSAC areas.

going back to the PUR cert/Amazon GC, anyone try a $50 cert on the Amazon GC?  I don't want to be the guinea pig and be stuck with a $50 cert at this point.  Only thing I"m remotely interested in is the PS5 and that's not going to release until after the cert expires.

The only Amazon cards they had at the store i went to today was the $25 card and then the card where you can put in a custom value. I used a $10 and $15 certificate and got a $25 card. Went through fine.

What do you guys think? 50 games all with $2 base traded in to one store? Or should I split it into two trades at two stores to avoid suspicion?

There's only like 3 cross platform duplicates between the bunch so I don't think that would raise too many eyes.

Im surprised how many of you have been able to find multiple last gen games with a $2+ trade value. I have 50+ 360 games and not a single one has a trade value of $2 or higher.

I found a five below with Animal Crossing. If I grab and trade in 4 before the promo ends, I will be alright as long as I don’t trade in another one in the next 30 days, correct?

Given the changes, the employee should be thrilled to get such a large trade-in.

I'm looking forward to Gamestop closing stores and consolidating inventory. Reason is the stores they close will surely be in the more rural, less-traffic urban areas. I would always see inventory in those far away stores and wonder just how great it would be if that stock movwd over to the city.

Still bad for Gamestop, and those customers, but good for their business.

So at this time TC can still be used on all digital currency other than the $50 PSN card? That includes iTunes, right?

Just bought a PS4 with controller and 14 games from a local Facebook yard sale page for $110. Trade in for everything at Gamestop is around $300 with the bonuses. Might have to watch the yard sale pages more often.

anyone know what's require to trade in an iPad. Do I need just the unit or is the usb cord and power outlet require? Apple sell these for $30 so i'm not sure if it's worth it to trade these along with it.

I'll post my receipt when I get back but almost every $10 Xbox one and PS4 games have $2 base. Only a few titles I looked up didn't qualify.

I did a $50 on Tuesday, no problem.  But if you're really worried, do two $25s in separate transactions, whats the difference?

Then the question is how many times are you buying a $54.99 base game a year? If its enough to cover the $60 year round discount with the new PUR then you have to think to yourself that you're already not getting much of a deal. You should never pay more than $30 for a game, and when you do pay $30 or around 30 it should be for a new game. It also seems like you have elite which most people dont, meaning they dont even get as big of a discount. I think you're looking at it from the lens of someone who paid $30 for a year instead of $15.

Keep in mind also that if you really do spend this exuberant amount on recently released used copies that all that money is going to the guys you're angry at, which is what gave them the balls to make this change in the first place.

The B2G1 promos are usually only once MAYBE twice a year. This is the only time where its beneficial to the consumer to have 10% off, as you should never buy new released games one at a time, even if they're used.

According to my receipt from yesterday, my elite membership saved me $1,470 just this year. I don't know how they come up with that number, but I can promise you with this rumored new Pro rewards I will be spending a LOT less money in GS.

They won't bat an eye at that. They will just be happy to see you.

Just a heads up , since I found out with swapping out a few defective games earlier.   Apparently GS's site only updates inventory on the store locator 1 time early in the morning now.   So if there's something you're wanting shows up on the store locator, call ahead to see if they still have it.  As it might've been sold and not updated on the website later that day like it used to.

Wow, this new website is bad... 

 

I tried using my TG coupon and and it disables all other offers. 

 

I select an item for in store pick up and am being charged $8 shipping. 

 

Fucks sake.

I did the math yesterday after all the talk about the new Pro. I've saved 3,110 this year alone. Gamestop is about to replace that with 45 bucks, and that's assuming I would make it in every month, and take away the discounts on pre owned on top of it.


Step your game up

I've been scanning this topic trying to see if there's any new in store offers like the recent 3 for $15 deal. I apologize in advance if I missed it. Just curious if anything replaced it. Thanks!

Yeah I think if I did the math the value of the Elite would be way more than that. Especially factoring in points too. I can see why they couldn't sustain Elite, but they have to do better than a $5 coupon a month, thats just insulting.
