"Save $20 on pre-owned Playstation 3 & Xbox 360 systems"

 

Of course this happens exactly one day after I ordered my PS3 on gamestop.com.

I'm honestly surprised to see that the cheapest PS3 system is still more than $70 at Gamestop.


Also, there's lawaway at Gamestop now according to the weekly ad.  Maybe I'll finally be able to get a PS4 and/or an Xbox One.

I’ve been saving them for a long time. Planned to use them for $100 off a Switch Lite

Well, it is the only system that plays PS3 games.

The uncomfortable party was the way the manager acted and seemed like she didn't want to do the return. And the only reason I think the chill employee might get in trouble is because the manager used the chill employee's ID to log into and do the return. Don't get why she didnt' use her own ID for the return.


I'd definitely report the manager for using someone else's ID. That kind of thing can get people fired or trash their numbers and there's no reason a manager should be doing that other than some kind of performance fraud.

Is there a way to know if you're blocked from ordering online, without having to call and wait on hold?

Maybe it's because I call before noon, but I usually get through to customer service right away. The only downside is the rep is usually clueless and I'll have to spend 20 minutes explaining my problem, and why their made-up explanation is wrong.

Might be YMMV, but I found this listing on their website and placed an online order for in-store pickup for $40.49. Only after I completed the order did I get suspicious enough to check the customer reviews to see if it was truly a Pro controller, and pretty much all of the comments were describing a third party controller like the Power A enhanced wireless controllers even though all of the imagery shows black or Smash pro controllers. However, when I got to the store to pick up the controller, it was indeed a legitimate Nintendo brand Pro controller.

 

Thought I'd mention it in case it's more than just a lucky break for me.

This worked out great for me, found a 20GB backward compatible PS3 at local store. Note that the POS did not take $20 off, needed an override for that. Firmware on the system is 2.42, crazy. Used a bunch of reward certs, so only ended up paying about $10.

I got the same email and the details don't mention select stores.  So this must be all stores doing it this time.

This was in my email, does this mean you have to buy all 3 games or you get a $10 reward for each? I don't see anything on the website about this either.

So cool that we can actually see everything that's on sale...

I wish I could find something spend my $300 in credit on.

I spent over $400+ of my trade credit on the 3 for $25 ($20 for elite) sale right now. I got $900 worth of games for about $400.

I will always question why people acquire so many games and how they find the time to play them.

For me, it's not about trying to play all of them. It's about having options. I like to acquire games I'm interested in at the best price so that if any time in my life I want to play that game it is readily available. Plus its like having your own arcade in your home. Some are just collectors plain and simple.

Did you do this in store or online? I cant get the 3 for 25 to show up in cart. It is only showing my pro discount.

Nice find, used to have one. If you notice it's fan being really loud or it running quite hot, I highly recommend re-applying the thermal paste (use Arctic Silver 5). Way back when the ps3 slim was new I did that to mine and it was night and day with how it ran quiet and pretty cool too (put something under the base like 4 little rubber feet to allow air flow). This way you can avoid it ever dying on you. 

I ended up selling my 20gb phat for a slim that had a bigger heatsink before it was shrunk on the next revision. Didn't bother me much to lose the ps2 compatibility personally.

I found the 60 GB launch PS3 at a pawn shop. The owner said it was broken and didn't work. I offered him 20 bucks for it with no cables or anything. Brought it home and hooked it up and has worked like a charm ever since and that was 8 years ago lol

I bought a 360 that was supposed to be 500GB at gamestop.com for $120 back in May. I didn't hook it up until yesterday and found out it only has 13.8GB with some jury-rigged hard drive installed with tape.

Jesus that sounds like mine, The model S 500GB taken out, 20GB launch era one extracted from the silver thingy, installed bare with tape to keep it from wobbling

Sorry?
