Doesn't appear that consoles are appearing on the Trade in pages right now. I think I may have waited too long to trade in my PS4.

Hoping for a $100-$130 used OG Xbox One deal on BF from GS. They did $130 for Pro day in September so it’s not too crazy.

I think it's just a mistake. You can view trade values from the console listings: https://www.gamestop...tion-4/consoles

No trade value on Xbox One Elite controller?

Honestly, I'm glad that gamestop did release a small sliver of their ad. I am still banking on that free Xbox 360 offer (we missed so many great games with backwards compatibility!) At the moment, it looks like they've beaten or tied Target/Best Buy/Walmart for all the games I am want from their ad.

I know they have used ones in stock that you could pick up at your local store, but I just can't remember what, if any, TiV they gave for the Elite v1 controller.

The base TIV for the Xbox one Elite controller is $50, traded in my old one and got $70 with elite pro and $10 bonus.

It was only $50 last time I checked in store.

While I'm sure the listing is legit and you have PayPal protection if not he says that it's "Like new. Used once" but the photo clearly shows a shrink-wrapped copy  :-k

It shipped and will be delivered tomorrow, I'm likely getting scammed....

He shipped a $20 game via Priority Mail Express 1-Day. That cost like $25, unless I'm missing something.

Guessing empty box and his account was hacked with CC on file? it shipped from address it said it would, not sure anymore.

Nope, but you should be banking your points, so unless you have auto issue on certificates, your points aren't impacted even when your membership runs out since you technically are still a member, but just on a basic account now.

No because it's not really a deal at all. Anyone who has any interest in that is likely already doing both IRL. Why would you pay $20 to do it virtually?

The GameStop Black Friday Early Deals:

 

https://www.gamestop...day-early-deals

 

 

It was mentioned earlier, but I don't think anyone linked it.

 

I suppose still a good time to buy a PS4 if you don't have one.  Good system for another year+, and it will be awhile before the PS5 gets good .. 2021-2022?  So still 2'ish+ year value.

 

XBox SAD is $100 off.  More baby seals cried.  That abomination should be free with an XBox Live/Pass service commitment..

 

No early Switch deals. :(

Decent deal.

Four stores near me have it in stock per GameStop.com but it won't let me place an order for in store pickup.

There's a chance it may be the last one at those stores.

 

I seem to recall having a hard time with this in the past with a particular store, and they told me that could be an issue.

 

The other conclusion is that GS website has been garbage for awhile now, so could just be giving you a hard time as a result.

 

The latter explanation is quite plausible. :P

Because you could trade it back in for $23.

From what is being said on Reddit, this is not the official BF sale, which, according to 2 GS stores, won't go out until the week of BF (anecdotal evidence, but it's what they say).

 

The early sale is likely just to help alleviate store stress when the games actually go on sale.  Or maybe help a little ... will the system prices go lower still?  Your guess is as good as mine .. but on Reddit the holiday hours were slashed, so I'm guessing "no".  Corporate likely wants to eliminate turning customers away via long lines, due to reduced staff.  I'm not expecting mind-blowing system deals.

 

Nintendo is sitting on old-stock MK8 bundles, which other retailers are advertising.  I'm not anticipating huge deals from GS (unless they include a gift card for buying an old model).  Controllers are getting the +$10 bonus for the rest of the month, so I doubt the special colors will be discounted.

 

I'm thinking just games for the "true" sale.  I'm open to thoughts.  Many GS store managers are complaining about not having the allocated hours to properly staff their stores, which isn't good.  I really don't think corporate expects an influx of customers (they know more than we do).  Time will tell.

 

It's interesting and sad at the same time.

Last year they had a $50 gift card with any Switch, PS4, XB1 excluding the $199.99 Slim PS4 1tb spider-man bundle and the $199.99 Xbox One S Minecraft bundle.

 

My hope is a $50 gift Card with The Jedi XB1S bundle but going by last year I doubt that happens.

If you are using a computer have you tried deleting your cookies and history? I had trouble using gift cards online at best buy and had to do that to get them to work.

Besides pawn shop stuff like Wii Sports and stuff you got during the XB/PS B2 sale weeks back, anything especially worth getting / trading this stealth bump? Switch stuff tanked, guess they could tank further to $20 or something but I really wanna play those games for a while

Debating whether or not I should bite the bullet on Outer Worlds. I have a $10 off reward so I could snag a used copy for $40. Based on Black Friday ads it doesn't look like Outer Worlds will be on sale.

It looks unlikely we’ll be getting gift card offers this year since none of the consoles in the GS ad list them.

Used my b2g1 free coupon today on Star Wars, Death Stranding, and Outer Worlds. I was glad to find the games I wanted relatively close together.
