Actually so my elite expired 11/21. Logged in today to basic member. Kept reading posts today from the past few hours and saw someone posted they recently renewed and got elite again so I decided to give it a go and purchased the $14.99 with trade in credit about an hour ago. I'm elite again :) Took a couple of minutes to update. Logged out and logged in after 15/20 min. I was initially scared cause when you click renew on website it just adds pro to your cart. Thank you to everyone who posted on this awesome glitchy matter <3 Gamestop reps been harassing me to renew in store with my points the past couple of weeks. Glad I kept saying no even if they were being at times annoying about it. Also glad no one did me dirty and renewed it sneakily. I had a sneaky store manager try to add a "free" protection to a pre-owned game I ended up getting when I cancelled a 20% bonus $5 pre-order deposit. 

 

Ahh GameStop.

 

I guess they only fixed part of the glitch.  I stand corrected.

 

If your elite just expired (leaving you with basic membership), you can renew then, apparently, for full elite.

 

I have a feeling their website code is an outdated mess, where you fix one thing and break something else.  Or it's nearly impossible to fix without spending hundreds of $k (spaghetti code, or cross platform languages nobody can correlate/follow).

 

It will likely be patched, breaking something else :)

 

In any event .. grats!

If I'm looking to trade my PS4 Pro in, should I hold until there is a promotion, or just take the $200 for it?  I just want to get a Switch Lite for it, and I'm not in a rush.

I also had an elite account expire around this time last year.  Website seems to call it an expired pro account.  Given option to renew pro.

 

My conjecture is that this is only working for recently expired elite accounts which were still active when the website was overhauled earlier this year.

I was wrong.  Decided to gamble $16 gs credit on this since I expect to be buying a lot next week.  Worked for me.  Thank you for everyone who posted about this.

Did you renew on the website or on the app? My wife's expired about a year ago so I'm gonna try and renew.

Yes. I think it goes until the 1st of next month.

Was able to trade both my controllers this evening.  Both got the $10 bump.   Thanks!

Something is definitely up with the trade limit. I'm over $2,500 in credit, and traded in 5 copies of Wii Sports last week, but I'm still good.

Starlink trades in for $9 after $5 Switch bonus (more with Pro/Elite) so it was well worth getting the $12 bundle for another Arwing/joycon holder.

And I'm sub-$2k by almost $200 and got a trade limit exceeded notice at one store 2 days ago. I did abuse G2L a bit - 4 copies of Jedi Order PS4 and 3 each of Sword and Shield, so that may be it? Whatever it was, it wasn't a junior detective thing, because all of the employees know me and know exactly what I do or make it know just how much they do not care.

Only thing that looks interesting is the White PS4 Pro + 25GC for $299. Maybe, just maybe the B1G1 on old last gen games. I don't get excited for B2G1 anymore. Everything else is just meh ..

 

unless I'm gonna spend money just for spending it. PS3 for $59.99 is slightly interesting, but do I really want yet, another PS3? I just bought one last year. OG Xbox for $99 is slightly interesting, but I already have 3 Xbox One.

 

Vita could be good only if Sony still supported it. None of the apps work anymore, maps gone, Netflix lags severely, Hulu don't work, youtube app is just a icon. Browser crapped out this year. No games. $99 for Vita is too much. Should be free with rebate.

 

How does a Game store dedicated to games get beat by a random retailer like Best Buy? Smh...

Didn't quite get to make it out to the GS stops today, but I will be out there to several stores tomorrow.

 

I will ask each store, and confirm the details I've been hearing about with Pro moving forward.

 

Sorry for the delay. :(

$99 for Vita is too much.


That's like the best investment ever, if you know what you're doing.

I haven’t traded games in so many years, but I am tempted to do so because I have a bunch of PS3 games that I no longer want to play.

I think I have Wii sports somewhere, not 100% sure.

Haven't played my wii in years, but remember having some party games. It had golf and bunch of others.

If I find it will trade it in, my wii is modded no need for the disc.

Not sure if this is it, but one thing I noticed before when I stopped getting points was that any transaction where I traded something in didn't show up at all on my recent activity page (back when we still had that). I never got to test my idea that maybe the system just wasn't keeping track anymore. It would be a very Gamestop-ish lazy way to make that work on their end just to stop giving points lol.

I remember a member having a theory regarding that, maybe it was you? I haven't been getting points so there might be a connection after all.

 

And I'm sub-$2k by almost $200 and got a trade limit exceeded notice at one store 2 days ago. I did abuse G2L a bit - 4 copies of Jedi Order PS4 and 3 each of Sword and Shield, so that may be it? Whatever it was, it wasn't a junior detective thing, because all of the employees know me and know exactly what I do or make it know just how much they do not care.

Damn, sorry :/ Even some of the employees that have been there for years and are out of fucks to give are starting to get pissy with me (one tried making me put all of my credit towards the preorder instead of just $5, the day after I preordered 5 Hot Wheels to pad his numbers), I really thought that guy would Jr. Detective me.

Attempted to buy some redbox games, with the intent to flip them to GS... but all of my credit/debit cards got denied (and I tried at multiple redbox locations). Figured may as well share with you guys, as it will otherwise have been a waste of time putting all this info together.

Days Gone has the wrong TIV on the app. Got $17.50 base tonight.

All the other games I traded tonight (6 others) had the same base values as app.

So the gamecube wired controllers like this:

The one I have says "PowerA" on the back, thought it was 1st party only? I'll give it a shot I suppose. I will never use a wired controller anyways... $6.6 + $10 would be better than taking space.

I have yet to find any switch games for sale at any of my redboxes.  Must be for certain states.   Also Gears 5 is another you can add to that list.
