So code vein for $20 wasn't a scam, just got it. Guy really sent it via 1 day shipping, postage value was $25. Idk wtf happened with shipping.

Was thinking of trading in eventually, but might keep it. Has to be my best score of the year.

Anyone else pick up a PS4 like 2 weeks back when they ran that deal where you get $50 rewards cert for buying a console? Fine print said it would appear in your account by the 20th and I still haven’t got mine

I bought one also and didn’t get my points either. I guess I have to call customer service.

Did you get 50k points? I got it next day.

Did you purchase online or in store? At the beginning of this year I found that they would pay points based on shipping date and not order date.

Finally, was it new? The offer was only for new consoles.

No points. New pro in store. Guess I’ll just have to find time to call then sit on hold for an hour

Does anyone have suggestions for a cheap add-on to get me over the $35 hurdle for free shipping? I only need three cents more.

Since Days Gone and Concrete Genie are going on sale next week along with Spiderman will it affect TIV's?

Yes. The TIV for those 3 games will quadruple.

In all seriousness, ofcourse they're going to drop. Probably half of their current TIV.

$25 Dualshock 4 on DOTD. Finally got into my account on the app (still won't work on the website) so only $20 with Elite. Assuming the $10 promo is still good it's a solid $8.90 flip.

I think GS marketing knows how slow their shipping actually is .. and their just playing games with us.  10 days to receive the controller, hmm.

Any current or predicted 20% trade boost pre orders on the horizon? Preferably before the value drops on sword/shield

I think someone mentioned in here before that it was either $120 or $125. But I've never seen it listed on the site.

That's crazy.  I see people do dumb stuff on ebay all the time (i've gotten quite a few steals that way), but never spending more on shipping than the item is worth. He's sold some other sailor moon stuff, so not like that was his only sale. I would message him and be like "Thank you so much, but how did you get it here so fast?" or something to see what sort of response you get.  Maybe he's just filthy rich and doesn't even care about the money? Or his company paid for the shipping?

This is the Gamestop Thread.  Do you mean Elite Pro?  I think my Elite Pro is expiring this month too.

Probably a dumb question but does anybody know if the $10 extra for current gen controllers still on? Don't see it on the app or GS website as a trade in offer

Jedi Fallen Order and Pokemon were the last games added that I know of.

Would also like to know. Thinking about picking up a couple dotd ds4s if so.

An ad that went out this morning speaks more of the controller bonus:

 

Get The Newest colors For Less When You Trade
RECEIVE A $10 CREDIT BONUS WHEN YOU TRADE PS4, Xbox One, or Switch First Party Controllers**

**Offer valid 11.11 – 12.1 for PS4, XB1, and Switch 1st party controller trades only. Not valid toward cash trades. Trades must be in full working condition to receive full value. Defective items may be eligible for trade at a lesser value. Trades subject to manager approval. Cannot be combined with any other offer. See store associate for details. No dealers. Offer valid in the United States and Guam only. Void where prohibited. GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancell, terminate, modify or suspend the offer for any reason without notice.

 

On Switch, it seems they take JoyCons, Pro, general Wireless, and Gamecube (Switch) controllers.  Seems like a good time to upgrade worn controllers.

 

Since the offer extends to December, I suppose this means there won't be any big deals on controllers during BF.

 

Anyone try trading in a JoyCon grip?  It seems to be identified as a controller, since a controller protection plan can be added to it..

 

 

Would also like to know. Thinking about picking up a couple dotd ds4s if so.

It was never on the app or site. I didn't receive the above quoted email but I did see the small signage (on some sort of post or pole I think)  in one of my 3 local stores.

 

Replying to thecobb8, as well, here. Forgot to quote that one.

Actually a lot of times I get my retro stuff in 2 or 3 days. Ymmv obviously but a used controller is something every store should have in stock to ship so it should come from close yeah?

Curious if anyone had tried lately.

My PRO was also loud but I was able to reduce the engine sound by changing the thermal paste by following some videos on YouTube. It has been 2 weeks so far and the loud noice has dropped. By about 80%

Appreciate it, but that's a bridge too far for me.  I actually did do the reflow thing on the PS3, but we're close enough to PS5 where I don't want to destroy the Pro's TIV when it's PS5 launch time, you know?

 

Appreciate the tip
