Dude, really? Literally the post before yours...

And to answer the other persons question about getting confirmation, they play a video in-store for the G2L games.

COD gets a $10 reward with pre order and purchase, does that go away if you trade towards the G2L promo?

CAN SOMEONE CONFIRM IF MW IS G2L. I have my original copy from 2007 and I DON'T love it.

COD is a guaranteed to love release as well. I think it would be helpful if GameStop had all of this info in one spot on their new fancy website.

You're right. It totally slipped my mind, I think because I already had it accounted for and taken care of in my plans.

No, you keep the reward. I did that for Ghost Recon. The G2L trade is considered a separate transaction

Can anyone confirm if CoD MW gets $60 credit if I trade it in the first couple days?

PS - I got so many flips this weekend and kept my mouth shut until now about it. Nice! Let's get that on a tray.

Yes please continue to talk more about how you were gatekeeping deals until after they ended, that's sure to make you popular.

That was fun.    Went by Gamestop earlier to pick up a Switch for my father, so he could start playing, and we took advantage of a "Buy a Used Console, get 20% off 2+ games".  There was no limit to the number of games, and the 20% off from the promo stacked with my Elite Pro, so got 40% off 10 different Switch games we picked up.  DBZ Heroes World Mission, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Moonlighter, Rime, both Pokemon Let's Go's, Skyrim, Hasbro Game Night, Yoshi's Crafted World, and Ni No Kuni.  Saved like $200.   :D


The reason that doesn’t get huge attention around here is because CAG’s get 33% off on GameStop.com normally, everyday with elite and cag16. And when a game goes on sale, we buy it with the 33% off then. So, 40% off everyday pricing isn’t as slick as the slick shoppers on here.

And while you “believe” you got 40% off, you didn’t. You got 36% off. For example, if you spent $100, and elite discount is 20%, then you pay $80. And if you get an additional 20% off $80, then you pay $64.

They do not sum the total percent off you get, they have their tricks. So, you got 36% off, when it’s 33% off online every day.

I must be slipping. It didn't even occur to me to look for flips this weekend. Glad others made out so well though. I think all I'm trying to do anymore is build my last 400 bucks into a launch PS5 and some games, maybe some extra PSN credit. If I can do that before it comes out then I'll cash out happy.

I had gift cards clipped on my fridge from places like Southwest, Fandango, Starbucks, etc via Gamestop credit. I just recently spent the last of my Southwest and Fandango and now of course I can't get any more. End of an era. It was a good run though.

Not all of us have Elite. You can't get it anymore.

Grabbed two of the 2 for $10 shirts from the dotd. Ordered Rick and Morty and Avatar TLA:

Nice deal with free shipping. Glad I ordered early in the morning since most of the good shirts are gone now.

Not trying to be popular and if gatekeeping deals will make me popular then I want no part of it. I am doing myself a favor and blocking you and your ways.

Lol this guy...he's saying you're not doing yourself any favors by constantly talking about how well you've done flipping games.

is the online "in store" preorder where you put no money down eligible for the $10 bonus or do you need to actually do it in store?

I did it this way and it worked for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint but not for Code Vein. I assume it works because I wasn't the only one who had an issue with Code Vein. Also, it appears that purchasing and returning a game will still get you the rewards cash, so it's worth a try for games that are not eligible for G2L.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but I asked my store associate and they said that COD:MW is a part of the "Guaranteed To Love it" promo. This is great for people (like me) who only care about the COD main story.

Pre-ring is at noon and you’ll be able to pick up at 6 for CoD. Apparently it’s not something they’re really advertising.

I live in California and my local store is doing pre-ring at 3pm and pick up I believe is at 9, but not positive about pick up time.

My store said 3pm pre ring and pick up at 9. I'm east coast though so makes sense.

Such a crappy experience at Gamestop today. I made a 30 min trip for a Ocarina Link Amiibo that was showing in stock. When I arrived to Gamestop they said a customers put the item on hold and I can't have it. Damn it!! Always confirm on the phone no matter what the app says so you don't end up like me.

The G2L code on the receipt for WWE 2k20 says "expires 10/24/19", which means that the 24th (tomorrow) is the last day to trade the game back in, correct? I am thinking of simultaneously trading WWE back in and getting Modern Warfare so that I only have to make one trip.

I mean you could have put it on hold first.

Does a paid in full preorder require a pre-ring?
