Gamestop employees must be desperate for GPG's.  Employee added GPG to my transaction and said it was free.... I was confuse and wonder how that was even possible, but then eventually notice that that the bastard redeemed my pts to pay for the damn GPG.....

Burn them on the survey, say exactly what they did and ask for a leader to call you and maybe you can get your points back without having to call customer service. I would also take the games back and return them on that employee, as that hurts them. I had a cashier add GPG to all of my purchases and then try to rush me through the payment so I wouldn't notice and then gave me pushback when i did notice so I burned them on the survey and I never saw them again.

Am I seeing this right in the ad? They're teasing a sale on Anthem next week in this week's ad? WTF?

Just looking at the ad, there really is no point to this week's ad. Seems like they're just phoning it in until their Black Friday sale.


I'd suspect its coincidental but Anthem is supposedly getting a major overhaul.


https://kotaku.com/s...them-1839892415

Recent silence and a couple of high-profile departures from BioWare have led fans and pundits to speculate that the studio has abandoned its most recent game, Anthem, but the opposite is true. For the last few months, BioWare and parent company EA have been planning an overhaul of the online shooter, according to three people familiar with those plans. Some call it “Anthem 2.0” or “Anthem Next.”

Many of the details are still in flux, and there’s no clear timeline for the Anthem Next project just yet. In fact, from what I’ve heard, the developers at BioWare haven’t even decided how it’ll be distributed. They’re still figuring out whether updates should be released all at once or over an extended period of time. Anthem could be overhauled through a series of updates, a la No Man’s Sky, it could get a game-changing expansion like Destiny’s critically acclaimed Taken King. Most of Anthem’s biggest systems—its mission structure, its loot, its world—will change drastically, but the developers have not yet figured out exactly what that will look like. They’re even considering releasing Anthem Next as a brand new game, although those who work on the project said that could take a lot of forms (and it’s unlikely they’ll charge full-price to Anthem players).

I had that happen in September on my Pro subscription.  Emp said it was expiring soon (didn't expire until December) but said I could renew it for free that day.  Didn't notice for two months that he used my points to do it.  Also caused the B2G1 to generate in September with a week left until it expired...so lost that one.

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..

Noteworthy: I traded in a random third party Xbox One controller and it got the bonus.

 

Wired Switch controllers apparently work, too.

I'm pretty surprised that more people aren't taking advantage of the "Guaranteed to Love It" for Pokemon Sword and Shield. I get that there's more content there than Link's Awakening or something, but given how controversial the game has been, I figured more people would have wanted that "free rental" to experience the game firsthand without full-on committing.

Does each joycon count as seperate so you get the bonus for both?

FYI - Tried to use my $5 pro coupon for $5 of Xbox or Nintendo credit and they said I had to get one of the physical cards, starting at $10. Picked up a $10 Nintendo eShop card for $5 (used trade credit). Not bad - thanks!

Anything good to buy for $5-$10?

Have $5 off physical item, online order, not looking to spend $35 for free shipping.

Need something I can pick up, $5 off still works on store pick up.

First time doing an in store pickup for items purchased online. How long does it typically take?

Also is there any way to actually check for price drops?

No $10 bonus on the grip, I tested it at 2 stores just to be sure.

I just traded a pokeball plus (thanks to the person that posted they qualify, no thanks to the person who apparently without any knowledge posted that they don't), and 4 joy-cons. I tried trading in a couple of power grips and a comfort grip, neither kind of grip qualified for the $10 bonus - was worth a shot.

Does each type (pro, poke, joy) side (l/r) and or color (neon, gray, smash edition pro etc) get their own 4 per 30 day limits?

Thanks to everyone posting good info on the $10 bonus.  The Switch holiday accessory bundle I bought a few months ago with the PUR coupon offer has a wired faceoff switch controller.  Going to bring that in tomorrow for $18.

I was thinking of doing the same, please report back if it works.

I can already confirm it rings up as $18 in the system - the employee temporarily rang it up to check for me.  It's just a matter if the value/promo holds going forward.

If you trade in more than 4 items with the same SKU during a rolling 30 day period you are virtually guaranteed to be banned

When I went to GS today the guy working told me not to expect a normal Gamestop BF due to them trying to recoup record $ loss this year. There will be a sale but more like Pro day instead of Black Friday.

that is so stupid it actually sounds like gamestop. the whole point of black friday is to earn the money to offset losses the rest of the year.

There is a reason he only works at store level. Anyone that suggests something so stupid doesn’t understand the point of BF.

Just ordered code vein on ebay for $20. Hope it's not a scam, might play it and trade in when we get a trade bonus. Should be able to get my money back atleast.Was planning on using my $15 off coupon, but would still be $55-$15= $40.

Can't find anything wrong with listing,seems too cheap:

Their Black Friday's are usually Pro Day sales with lower prices. If Gamestop does not decide to at least match the competition, their going to lose sales.
