GS tried to give me a -$22 refurb fee because the sticker on the back of a 360E I recently bought was messed up. System was flawless. That must be one expensive sticker to replace.

you mean the sticker that gets messed up when you open the case? That would be why.

The hope of getting a local prestige store is our only reward.

I must have filled out 60-70 of them, and nothing. Nor, in my entire (long) time on this site, have I ever seen anyone claim to have received one. 

I don't doubt that they send them; I just think a lot more people do the surveys than this site represents.

Read the terms online. I'm pretty sure you only have one entry per drawing, though employees will lie to you and say it's unlimited chances. It's buried in paragraph B under heading How To Enter:

Limit one (1) sweepstakes entry per person/address/email address/month no matter what method of entry is used

Are they actually doing double points this weekend? I'm not seeing it anywhere outside of a reddit post.

Unless I'm missing something, it looks like they have gotten rid of online certificates in the rewards center? Given that I only have an interest in their retro stuff that effectively makes rewards points completely fucking worthless to me now.

I went to buy a few games and it came up B1G1 50% off the two game cube games I bought instead of B2G1 free. Still great timing. Thanks!

Dumb Question Time...

I've never (NEVER) traded any of my collection, but it's time to down size to what I'm playing now and a reasonable (HA!) backlog.

 

Would you guys say that trading in to Gamestop on this Double Points weekend is my best bet to painlessly dump the bulk of my ps3/360/wiiU/ps4/xbo discs? I know most of the values will be incredibly low, but anything is better than the stacks and stacks of game cases around the house.

Go for it if you want cash since they're not going to go any higher before the cash promo ends.

If you want credit go find that list of stores that can’t do cash same as credit. You will get bonus 50 percent

What's it mean when the store is prestige? Do they get better stock or something? One of the stores near me is considered Prestige.

Supposedly Prestige means there's a Prestige-only sale at certain intervals (I've heard both monthly and quarterly), and they get more stock of in-demand items. I don't have any actual experience with it, just hearsay mostly from reddit.

Anecdotal. My Prestige store has had multiple shipments of Octopath. The two non prestige got their preorders and that's it.

B2g1 coupon good for flipping switch pro controller in non-CSAC areas.

Especially if you get the cable with and trade it separately.

Quarterly.  It's independent of the "Pro-day" sales.  It's been that way for a year or two now.

Last week I went a couple times to trade in some games for XBL credit and the 40% promo (Get up to 40% Extra Trade Credit When You Trade Toward XBOX / ITUNES / PS currencies (Valid through 7/22)  still kicked in even when it was supposed to end on 7/22 and is not listed on the website anymore, would someone know when it actually ends, may want to bring some stuff in this week but even the employees in store were surprised that the promo still works and couldnt tell me when it ends.

Went to a semi local GS and saw and couple of things that caught my eyes....

First was that I’m starting to see more and more DS games having cases which I extremely pleased with. The second one was an ad in the store saying that they are buying retro games and as you can see it also says PS2 games (which someone mentioned earlier). Looking forward to this as I have a lot of PS2 games I would love to trade in.

I've seen a couple stores in my area have cases for DS titles--seems to be hit or miss.

 

And the retro trade ins - yeah they'll definitely take them but they don't sell them them in store (at least not yet, unless the PS2 rumor stated a few pages back is true). They get shipped off for online sales.
