Says "starts 10/7" in the fine print.


Yeah I know but they also have unadvertised bonuses so I thought maybe it was already active..

Haha well I traded in my X1S for $200 (bought an X1X for $175 at Meijer) and already have 10+ Switch games I want to play.


Was this over a year ago? I've been looking for a chance to unload my S for $200...but the most I've noticed in a while is $175 towards an X.

Over the summer was $200 (X1S 500GB) toward a Switch though I returned the Switch for credit after hearing new models were coming.

Could I use this promo to upgrade my old Switch to a new Switch?  $250 towards a One X then return the One X and pick up a New Switch with the $25 gift card?  So basically a $25 upgrade.

Yes, but you need a gift receipt for the Xbox One X and need to be smart about it. If you return it with the regular receipt, they will see that you got bonus credit for your switch towards the Xbox and will only return the value of just a regular switch trade in. When doing the return (possibly at another GameStop) if you don't give them your PUR details, I think you get to keep the points for trading in your switch and buying the Xbox.

What is with people spreading false information lately? If you don't know what you're talking about, don't post. They cannot legally change the return value that is on your receipt. You may get a JD employee that refuses to return it or draw attention to your account. But once you sign for the trade-in, it is legally binding and cannot be changed.

Really? Back in 2018 when GameStop had a promotion for 3ds towards a new Switch, I traded in my 3ds for $100 credit towards the Switch. Later decided I didn't really want the Switch at the time so when the employee processed the return, I got about $265, the $200 I paid out of pocket and $65 trade in value for the 3ds. I just kept the Switch instead. Not trying to spread false information so I'll just edit my original post.

Yeah I've heard of the major JD employees doing that. Definitely not allowed.

I would have burned the employee on a survey. Chances are they’ve done it to other people and gotten away with it.

If you want to do a system transfer of your account to the new switch, this would be impractical.

Thinking of trading in a ps4 pro and switch toward an xbox one x in the ad promo. I assume new Xbox One X means I can get the $400 nba 2k bundle.

Wanted to make sure I needed a gift receipt or if I can just return the xbox 1x using the regular receipt at a different store. Also wanted to make sure they'd take $550 of trade in (switch+ps4pro promo) for a $400 system and give a gift card for the rest. Any help is appreciated since I don't trade a lot anymore and haven't kept up with this thread like I used to.

Man...my order of Solatorobo Red the Hunter was cancelled just now. Ordered it two weeks ago and it never even went into 'Preparing for Shipment' status. Was stuck on 'Awaiting Product Availability' since I bought it.

Was going to buy Persona 5, but don't have time for a 100 hour rpg. Seems a bit boring. Have too much to play right now.

The $15 off coupon expires at the end of the year, so plenty of time. Might wait for a sale on code vein.

$25 gift card with Switch fat is tempting as I'm in the market but know I should wait for BF deals.

You are way too easily tempted...

Realistically, how much better are we going to get for Black Friday? A free game? An accessory kit?

Last Black Friday was a free Mario Kart 8 Deluxe digital code and a $50 gift card...

Be patient or just buy the damn thing already

I was just asking my gamestop when they were going to start selling off the 3ds and DS game's yesterday and she said come back sunday. She's been hinting towards them getting rid of stock by February next year. I like that B1G1 50% on the handhelds.

I would have thought by this point, there would be a bigger market for DS/3DS cases than games.

I wonder if they overprinted. It was impossible to find the first two weeks or so and then they flooded stores with many copies. Every store I've checked has a big stack of them.

Hmmm $150 trade credit for a Xbox One S is tempting. Thats the highest I've seen in a while. Not might be the time to pull the trigger; I want a PS4 for Death Stranding and TLOS 2

After years of hearing about this game among the Xbox nerds I was really excited to try it. Then I watched MyLifeinGaming stream it and it looked boring af.

I don't understand why these employee's even care. it's not like Gamestop have their backs or something. They are paid mickied wages and are ask to be top tier salesman. And once gamestops' done with them, they are toss out like a half eaten cheese burger... lol... 

 

Gamestop employees are the epitome of current day slave labor. 

 

I would have burned the employee on a survey. Chances are they’ve done it to other people and gotten away with it.
