So people who don't pay tax with their trade in credit, how do you approach it?  Do you just say,I want to apply some of my credit to the switch or preorder?   OR does it not matter?  It just depends on your state?

For what its worth, the kid working at the store today said they have a TON of price changes rolling out tonight. So many that they were given extra hours to do it, which rarely happens. Obviously that doesn't mean all the prices are going down, but it seems like a good chance that a lot of stuff will be cheaper tomorrow. Hopefully the next sale period includes another 4 for 20 or similar.


Does he still think sales change over on Wednesday? I knew GameStop was behind the times, but damn, that’s bad. No wonder they’re firing people left and right.

So according to Cheapy, all gift cards (not just Southwest) can no longer be bought with credit. Glad I bought some gift cards today

Hopefully that's just policy and not hardcoded in the register.

Heard that today was the last day to buy Southwest gift cards with credit before they restrict them.


Wow. Kudos my man. Should’ve listened to you instead of going to the movies. Damn

Prob in the minority but sucks about GI losing staff... even though mags are dead and even most gaming new sites seem to be nothing but videos/streams these days, I enjoyed GI. Thought it had some really solid previews and loved the retrospectives. Even in an era when they basically have no competition, I enjoyed the magazine- even thought about keeping my PUR+ membership going because I enjoyed the magazine.

This sucks. We always bought Kohls and Home Depot cards, saw it coming though. No way they can survive paying $15 for Wii Sports then just taking all the credit somewhere else. My brother has over $900 and is not very happy right now, but he probably should have brought that number down a bit over the past few weeks. I have around $400 but planning to buy some switch games and possibly a phone at the end of the year so it's not so bad for me. The end is definitely closing in though. So pretty much the only way to get something physical now outside of Gamestop is with the Xbox->Microsoft store deal.

Nobody is happy about GI losing half their stuff. They made a good magazine, great digital content, and had lots of great people working for them.

Was just looking and looks like most of the ones laid off were senior staff.   Probably GS thinking "well, they're higher paid employees, let's cut them and keep the lower paid ones".  Pretty crappy that one found out about getting laid off while he was on vacation.

 

Makes me wonder how much longer before they cut the subscription from PUR and shutdown the magazine for good if they're cutting costs everywhere?   At this rate, wouldn't surprise me if they start closing stores before the holidays really start in November.

LMAO excellent, I was planning on buying a bunch of Southwest GCs for a vacation this weekend and naturally I didn't see this until after they're closed. This company really is just hot garbage. Business is failing so let's do our beat to slash deals and drive customers away, that'll save it!

So should I buy a PS card now? It looks like only $50 is on the list though.

Cashed out most of my credit toward MS/xbox credit yesterday.

I’d say all the gaming ones are safe, hopefully iTunes is good too, I like to get some for FEH sometimes. I also feel like now would be a good time to cash out PUR points too, never know when they are going to gut that, or at least keep a kinda low balance of points.

Stores are still open so go buy them cards if you got credit to burn

I have $200 but I was planning on using that for a bunch of switch stuff when I get my Pokémon lite from bb

Also did they axe the birthday coupon? That day at the register they didn’t mention it now on the app I can’t see any offers

Probably overreacting, but are we sure GS will last until the Switch Lite comes out?

Not gonna lie, I honestly wasn't aware... seems like 5-6 yrs ago when there were still a few mags still around, GI was universally disliked (and being owned by GS didn't help). Guess maybe that sentiment wasn't as common as I thought it was or changed greatly.

Switch v2 and Switch LITE are two different consoles.
V2 is out, Lite is next month. That’s why he asked.
