since all the sale prices are on NEW and not on preowned, i dont see any value flips myself


Well easily 8 good flips this will be a good time assuming values hold.

Man of Medan is very much worth $20 if you enjoyed Until Dawn. 

 

Not too much I am seeing that I need to get, but Saints Row on Switch is tempting at that price. Does anyone know if it's been patched to run well on Switch? I remember hearing it ran pretty poorly.

Granted, they are all smaller flips (less than 50% increase in value). But the $5 extra for PS4/XOne/Switch games helps.

It is a good way to use points plus if they drop pre-owned as well those $2.20 flips will easily be $6+. I only see 8 and two are breaking even.

Man of medan was the only thing that stood out to me, might pick that up for $20

Not really seeing anything worth a trip during the sale.  Seems like a lot of games that they've had for the same prices during their sales the past 6 months.

 

Is it just me or is Forza Horizon 4 $30 on page 3 and $50 on page 6?

It's not just you.  Maybe one is new and one is used?  Although it would be pretty stupid if the new copy is the one that's $30.

What are you considering to be 8 good flips? I am not seeing a ton of profit for anything here?

PRO day sale seems like a bust. Looking at that ad, no extra 10% off on used games or B2G1 with a purchase this time around

I think you're confusing PRO day and Prestige day. PRO = garbage "sales" Prestige = real deals and B2G1

Eh, I agree with you mostly. But I'm seeing ~$17 profit off of 5 games, so that's good enough for me. And since I don't have gigantic stashes of credit like some people here, every little bit helps.

Huh. It is a remake and only supports up, down, left, right, and diagonal moves like the original. https://youtu.be/KREpHaA0Tbo?t=731


Yeah it's a remake which is a completely new game. Why not refuse to play it because instead of just a two button game like on the gameboy they have expanded it to all the buttons? Seems like a bizarre reason to skip a game for.

Oh boy, coming in with the sass I see!  :-P The game itself is good but I don't find this iteration 10x better than the DX version I already have. They added a couple shells, hearts, and a half-baked, no-share dungeon creator thing. The lack of d-pad support and frame rate struggles don't help. To each their own but upon review, this isn't a game for me to own at $60.

I’ll grab Mario rabbids at 19.99

 

FYI - It's currently $20 at Best Buy and Amazon too.

Why is one 128gb SanDisk micro sd card $19.99 and the same size but "for Nintendo Switch" is $34.99?  Does the more expensive card have faster transfer speeds?

Sure would be nice if the $5 trade-in bonus ended up applying to everything. Then I could unload some junk on them.

What’s the difference? Marketing/branding

The “for Nintendo switch” doesn’t have faster transfer speeds

In the weekly ad, the TIV for certain tech (iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy S9) towards a Switch is $200...but in the Pro Day ad those 2 same items are worth $300 TIV towards a Switch.  That's a big bump. 

 

I wonder if any consoles will also see an additional bump in TIV (towards a Switch) for Pro Day.

Looks like I will be keeping my account regular and avoiding going PRO again.

Gungeon for 20 is a superb deal if you've never played it before and like to have physical media. There's so many hours of fun in that game. I suck awful at it but I probably played it for 60+ hours. I actually bought it digital as well as physical for my ps4 because I like to revisit it randomly.

Very highly recommended by me.

So...if they do end up lowering the pre owned prices as well for Pro day, does that mean the 9.99 games will qualify for the 4 for 20? Would be sweet if so.


That's what I'm hoping for as well.

Preemptively putting the bug in anyone's ear to report on whether the 20% bonus towards Zelda applies tonight *and* also tomorrow morning. I have lots of trades to do but they're now barely worth it unless that is in effect.

Same. Pro Day, plus 20%, plus $59.99 buyback would be nice af.

Didn't even think about that...that would be awesome.

Diablo III on switch for $40 seems fairly slick. Not $12 on BF from Walmart slick, but reasonable since I don't think it goes on sale often.


$17, but yeah, after missing out on that deal, it's been tough to settle for anything that isn't at least close to that

Assuming they're PS4/XB1/Switch games with base values between $2 and $20, wouldn't the $5 automatic bonus be better for tomorrow?

I know what I'm talking about. Pretty sure there was a B2G1 coupon sent the last time there was a PRO day sale when you made a purchase. No mention of it this time around.

I'm looking at certain flips that are only (to me) worthwhile if there's 40% (I'm elite, so 20% plus bonus 20%) towards Zelda plus the bonus $5. I live in a very low-density area for Gamestops so there's supply and logistics issues to deal with.
