I don't play sports titles, but I would imagine it is best to buy FIFA 19 as close to launch as possible, and then wait for a FIFA 18 fire sale for the world cup stuff.

 

Yeah, good point. Thanks.

 

10 of my games got stealth bumped.  Only two titles dropped (Shadow of War, and The Evil Within 2). 

Overall that equals to $36 more TIC, or 21.59% increase.  Glad I waited.

 

I'm gonna cash in this weekend.  Not gonna risk waiting until the next.

Damn, Evil Within 2 is one of the games I have (I just rushed through it this week to prepare it for trade-in).

You got $195 in TIC, but how much did you spend is the question. I'm assuming you spent at most $18/game (assuming msrp is $60).

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere else, so apologies, but does the 40% bonus toward "Fortnite currency" work on just any Xbox live gift card? I want to stock up to buy Nier. Thanks!

Thanks! I was just going to get a $50 card but that works. "Gift card" was the wrong thing to type.

If you have the b2g1 coupon then there’s quite a few decent boomerangs for this weekend with the 30% . Though if you don’t have it already then you’re not likely to get it before the “bump” period ends by renewing now.
There’s a few games that are boomerangs without needing the b2g1 though namely

Wow, I didn't get a chance to go yesterday and values of the games I have tanked even worse today. For example, COD:WWII dropped from $12 to $8 base. BF1 also dropped.

Never got my double points coupon, and after half an hour on hold was informed by the Rep that she couldn't find any info on said promo. Meanwhile, Gamestop posts about it on their Facebook page as we are speaking.

I'm about to do a huge trade-in and snag an XB1X while they're still 50% off, and I need that coupon. Made the preorder on the 13th.

I know it’s been discussed in the old thread before, but thought I would see if anyone still here knows. What’s the highest amount you can put on a Southwest Gift Card from GameStop in one transaction?


I’m pretty sure it’s $500. I did $300 last year.

CoD dropped b/c it’s on sale.

Yeah, I'm just being too dramatic. But after waiting for the damn 6+ games promo which ended up being 50% instead of 70%, it's just lame.

That's the guy who said he would get more trade value for a PS4 as a non-Pro member than as a Pro member, when there's no difference for hardware.

thats how it came up on the website. not when i actually went in.

Are there any other good to great flips from Redbox besides Hitman & RotTR (PS4)? All of St. Louis Redbox’s are sold out of Hitman on both systems & I need 1 more game to get to 50% bump if I buy RotTR.

I could put in Secret of Mana on PS4 but with that being a GS retail exclusive I’m worried about trading it for $2x TIC if it’s going to worth $40 or more down the road.

Edit: Found Rocket League, that will work.

Does GS still take HDMI cables for trade? I couldn't find them in the search and I've got 2 or 3 that need a new home.

I just traded in a bunch of accessories and 6 games. I picked up a $10 Nintendo eShop card to get 40% bonus on the accessories, but that knocked the games down to 40% instead of 50%. I only ended up losing a few dollars in trade credit, so not a big deal. I thought about trying 2 transactions as I thought the POS system might not do it right.

 

Anyway, I found a Bioshock the Collection Collector's Edition for PS4 for $150. Debating on keeping it or making some profit on it via eBay.

 

Thanks to whoever mentioned the wii sensor bar trade credit, I traded in both my Wii and Wii U sensor bars for $11.20 each after bonus.
