No.

Thanks for responding.  That probably seemed like a stupid question, but I rarely set foot in a GameStop store these days.  I might trade in some old PS2 and PS1 games today to get the extra $5 per game, so I'm just trying to figure out what to do with my store credit.

The reason you got that response is because people have been talking about GameStop's decision to stop allowing purchases of gift cards with credit over that last 20-30 pages.

 

Edit: You can still buy most PSN, Xbox, etc stuff though.

Anyone else use their Thinkgeek coupon online, get their order cancelled, and try reusing the coupon only to get "coupon already redeemed"?

 

I have a similar question. My first code worked but when I try the others on a different order on the same account they say they can't be used.  But if I try them on another account they work.  I have not placed an order fearing using a code from a different account.  Should I be concerned?  Can I use the $10 coupon on an account different from the one the coupon was issued?

So I'm looking to get rid of some old games that are now all on gamepass. I see that they have $5 bonus on games that are worth at least $2. To confirm, they can add this $5 bonus on multiple games in one transaction?

Off topic but any recommendations on a 3rd party warranty website for a Switch? I see SquareTrade and Upsie available are there any others? SquareTrade is more money upfront with no deductible for repairs and Upsie is cheaper at first but has a Deductible and also seems to cover liquid damage.

Thanks

If your that worried about damage buy one at Costco. It will be a bundle but I remember returning my Xbox 360 three times due to RROD and then eventually being given a Xbox One since they ran out of 360 bundles.

What you mean so it wouldn’t be
49.99 - 20% = 39.99 - $10 preowned cert $30?


No, it would be $49.99 - $10 preowned cert = $39.99 -20%.

The bigger the cert, the less you get for the 20%

It's like picking insurance on anything else. Do you want the higher premium or higher deductible?

Not unless my calendar is wrong. Pretty sure tomorrow is 8/25 which is when the promo ends according to the details on the website.

This has been an amazing promo, I got one last batch to dump tomorrow and hope I get to a store before they close.

Depending on your settings, a few pages back the thread was reacting to non-gaming gift cards no longer being eligible to be purchased with trade credit.

Can anyone confirm if those hand held football systems trigger the sale? Just found a couple stores that have them.

Finally got a GameStop to take in my retro games but refused one because of the condition of the label which wasn’t that bad but I guess I could understand.

From my experience, they are way more picky about retro cartridge games than retro disc games. I’ve been turned down on NES games because they had a little bit of faded marker on the back.

I didn't think his response of a simple "no" was a bad response.  It was a "yes" or "no" question.  And I really did appreciate that he responded promptly with a good answer.

 

Depending on your settings, a few pages back the thread was reacting to non-gaming gift cards no longer being eligible to be purchased with trade credit.

Again, I didn't think it was a bad reaction, and I appreciated his answer.  I knew that gaming gift cards were still allowed.  What I was trying to figure out was if I could just put the credit on a GameStop gift card instead of a trade card since I might want to use the GameStop gift card to buy a non-gaming gift card in the future.  But I see that GameStop has gotten paranoid as of late that people won't buy anything in their stores anymore.

 

I'm probably still going to dump my extras while the bonus is on since I need to thin out some PS1 and PS2 games.  But thank you everyone for replying and providing useful information.

Wont be surprised. Most games traded in for the extra 5 deal are $9.99. Theyll bump them up to 15 and sell them all again and the guppies will buy them. Pretty smart for GS

One more question regarding retro games - do they take games that don't appear on the website?  I have a lot of PS2 games, but they don't seem to pop up on the website if they aren't role-playing titles.

I hope it isn't $3 for $25 tomorrow, I'd rather they do a deal with $19.99 games.

Check the app. If it is on neither, then call because the likely answer is no.

Is the +$5 promotion still going tomorrow on Sunday? Or is it over on Sunday? I still have one more Animal Crossing to trade in.

The $5 promo ends Sunday when the stores close.

Looks like the handhelds do still work. Worked fine for the 75 games I bought.

So I found out that I can't use my online account for up to two weeks because my account has been flagged due to rejected orders.  When I tried to make other orders, they kept getting rejected too...making it worse.  Called them up to find out WTF was going on and they said it was either an issue on their end or mine.  I told them their crappy website re-design was probably to blame and their response was "maybe it was your email address having issues..." 

 

Needless to say, I can still do in-store transactions and web in-store orders.  I thought it might have been a problem with my trade credit but it's not.  If i keep trying to make online orders, the 2 weeks will reset.  Anyone else have this issue in the past?
