So if anyone remembers, posted about this lot:

https://i.ebayimg.co...dVL/s-l1600.jpg

 

Got some good and bad news....

Keep in mind payed $40.

 

DS4 works, tried MW and all buttons worked well. Just need to clean.

3 DS3 untested for now.

All 4 PS2 controllers are broken, only start button works.

Gamcube controllers are mostly fine, just cosmetic issues. 3 OEM ones work, 3 fake ones work.

Both OEM N64 controllers work, but sticks are lose.

Both OEM Xbox one controllers work.

One is Advanced warfare version, missing battery cover.

Other is newer model with 3.5mm jack,no battery cover. Had broken trigger/plastic, it works, but clip is broken.

 

I can make my money back, trading in both xbox one controllers, but not sure if they'll refurb fee for no battery cover?

Keep in mind, haven't opened them yet to clean.

I need a refresher: was the "no more than 1 copy of a game per trade" rule hard-coded into the register, or was it only something likely to get your account flagged by a JD?

Official rule, best to trade in the second copy at another store or another day.

It's a rule but not coded into the register. I traded two copies of a 3ds game not too long ago but called ahead to make sure it was ok first.

I feel like my local stores have been my best "promo" recently. It looks like, for the second time in about 2 months, an order I placed online for store pickup that I picked up and traded-in at another store towards a pre-order, was not flagged in their system as picked up. I got an email reminding me that the items are waiting for me at the store. The last time that happened, the order was eventually cancelled, and a giftcard was mailed to me for the purchase price.

 

I haven't been able to make the b2g1 deal work favorably yet (missed out when NBA 2K20 was selling for $38 and trading for $23 yesterday), but this makes up for it  :D/

Thank you both.

So does gamestop accept broken 360/PS3 controllers? I've heard retro trade ins must be working.

Is 360/ps3 considered retro now?

So is power up rewards points redemption broken on the new site? I login and go to rewards center and it says "We are sorry, but no rewards were found."

It's just the website being screwy. At the same time you also can't check your Order status/history, can't check gift card balances and can't add items to Wishlist. Really wish they would clean this up.

Quick question, looked my wii classic controller and picture is of a 3rd party.

Wanted to trade in, but has picture of power a third party instead of real one.
Gamestop hasn't ever accepted third party controller right?

Just received a $10 rewards certificate, but I am not sure if it is from my Outer Worlds or Modern Warfare pre-order. The available on date is 10/26/19 and the expiration date is 11/22/19. Has anyone else received their rewards cash yet?

Flipped as in sold or flipped it over. Either way nice.

I have no $10 reward but it is possible my account is fed up so possibly from Outerworlds.

Last time I traded in some in they didn’t check them, they just looked at them from different sides

They're definitely supposed to plug them in and test them. Most of the guys in my home store don't bother with doing it for me, but one sticks to the rules. I think it depends how packed the store is and or if you have a good relationship with them.

If you look like this, then they will definitely check your controllers.

I assume that the $10 certificate that I received is for purchasing The Outer Worlds, then. It doesn't seem like anyone has received the rewards cash for Modern Warfare yet. Knowing the GameStop website, I wonder if it's actually going to give me both or if it will trigger some glitch in the system.

Employee tried to apply a $3 disc protection to my cod game even though I literally told him “I’m good I don’t need that.” Do I burn on survey??

So traded in 2 xbox one controllers($11.80 each),1 DS3($3.40) and xbox 360 controller(2.75). Got $30 after refurb fees, which is fine as they are broken.

They wouldn't take my other 360 controller with thumbsticks peeled.Might just donate it.

Paid $40 for the lot, basically made my money back. Kept working DS4,just needs sticks replaced. 3 working gamecube controllers, 2 N64 controllers and other stuff.

there was one who did that without me saying yes or him asking if i needed. before i pay, i noticed the price is higher than how much it suppose to be. i asked why is it that expensive. he said oh for some reason the warranty got added. got home and did the survey and complained. came back weeks later, he no longer working at lamestop. got that mudda sukka fired.
