1. trade in disc only.

2. put manual and case separately on ebay.

3. ?????

4. profit.

If you're gonna involve eBay, why not just sell the complete game there instead? Unless you're thinking the trade values are better.

The manager of the store I reserved a Kratos Nendo at did NOT want to sell it to me because 'it shouldn't be part of the sale'. He told me corporate glitched some of the old skus with the updates and that some figures shouldn't be included in the sale but are. Initially refused to scan it and told me it wouldn't ring up $5 but I eventually got him to and voila, $5. Proceeded to grumble about customers ripping the store off and 'taking off with high priced items' and was super salty about it.

Also it was the Assistant Manager or 3rd key as Store Manager’s are in Nashville for conference.

What android porn app do you all have installed that’s giving specific hacker groups/nations running Google Play and only Google Play scams your passwords?


It’s from the website hack a few years back I bet. Someone cloned my GS CC & tried to use it in Jacksonville in December.

Man... I've been reading about problems with the site for a while... but it's completely borked. I can't even view the weekly ad.

To confirm, the $5 toys are good all week? Not sure if that's what was corrected, or the 2/$5


$5 figures through close of business on Sunday.

So coverted my gamestop credit to MS credit, bought 8tb hdd,samsung t5 500gb ssd and another 1tb hdd. Was really needing a new HDD, my current 2tb is full.

Overpaid a bit, but evens out considering I still got gamestop bonus because it was credit. Going to guess gamestop got me an extra $80.(60% bonus and $5 bomus deals)

Don't forget you'll get points on all that money you converted as well. Gamestop really is a good deal at times...while it lasts.


Yeah, have 12,000 points, can get $15 off used game or $10 ps/xbox credit.

Quick question: I bought and already paid for something for pickup. How long will they hold onto the item?

did you go on the website or app and check to see if they are games they are supposed to take? they don't take everything. and with gamecube games they can't take them if they are scratched at all because they don't fit in the disc polisher machine.


I always check TIVs on the app so that I know what the total should be. That’s the easiest way to know if they try to sneak a refurb on you. Like that guy above said, she probably didn’t know how to do a retro trade-in.

This 100%. I went through GS to get most of my older Pokémon games because I had the credit and sales brought the prices down. Fakes weren’t super surprising to me, but hearing the employees say they discard the cases, manuals, etc was maddening. I went to Ebay and found cases/manuals, and some of the manuals were impressive just with how much they weigh. I’m not sure if I was more excited to have the game, or what the game came in.

I overbought two Pokémon games, so I went to trade them back in a few months later. Both came from GS online with cases, but during the trade-in process, the GS associate actually asked if I wanted to keep the cases because he would have to throw them away otherwise. I kept them and sold on eBay at a little more than what the fees/shipping/time was, hoping they would end up with a collector who appreciated what they were.

I get that they take up space, but I still hate this GS practice...

Definitely don’t sleep on your manuals. I saw one for Mega Man 7 go for $100 recently. Newer ones are rarely worth anything though.

When I did one a couple months ago, the confirmation email said a week. Not sure if it's changed since the site update.

Got a little annoyed today. I went to the other store in town to buy all their $14.99 games, lol. Picked up 18 of them, and when she cashed me out she asked if I wanted the GPG, which of course I declined, and she sighed and said "I'm taking a huge hit on my GPG today I guess".  Like, gee, sorry I only spent $124.

Looks like stock is messed up again both on the website and in the app.

If a game is only under $14.99 after elite pro kicks in, would that also qualify for this promo?

GS is wanting GPG’s on 20% of all games sold currently, that’s their metric of the moment.

But why though?

Because they have to get a certain % of games sold with a GPG or they could face employment issues.  They also have trade and pre-order goals too.  Also, bonuses are tied to store income, and returns reduce that, so some managers will be less than thrilled to process returns.

 

It's a crappy system and unfair to employees, but that's how it is for them.  What you can do are positive surveys.  They do help them and push your store closer to prestige (which means a quarterly prestige day with b2g1 free on PO'd games)

Wow, I had no idea this was a metric for employees, thought it was just preorders and PUR subs. Sucks for their employees. I'd prob go to their stores more if their employees didn't have to do so many things corp wants them to.

I think he meant why buy 18 $15 games. At least that's what I thought. I was going to ask the same thing
