Got my Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver today, and the Heartgold is real and the soulsilver is fake lol

I'm sorry to hear that. My sis bought me a couple Pokemon games too for Christmas online. Hoping they are legit.

Is the $5 additional trade in credit just for cyber Monday? Or the entire week?

Turned $300 into $750 in just 4 hours! So many good flips with this promo, putting in my last orders tonight so I can make one last flip tomorrow. Is this the final goodbye to Elite?😢

How do you tell the difference? Does the game not run properly, or is it an appearance thing like the sticker is wrong?

Fake carts are lighter in color, lack the radio port to communicate with the pokewalker and the sticker also looks odd. It's almost impossible to tell unless you know what you're looking for, which is why I'm not surprised gamestop took so many fakes.

Yeah the heartgold is a transparent black and has the ir sensor on top for the pokewalker.

I really hope the 4 for $20 values don't tank to $1.75 tomorrow. Today was just the tip of the iceberg. Spent $220 at one store to trade in for $454 at the next. This is the last hurrah before everything goes to shit.JhDyqjb.jpg

If you try the UPS tracking site:
 
https://www.ups.com/track?loc=en_US
 
Then paste your tracking number there, perhaps that might be helpful.
 
BTW if you create a free account, I think that gets you also 1% back (10 points per dollar - essentially 1% of what you spend).  Also having access to the website that controls your order is nifty :)


Thanks. I don’t think that UPS tracking will tell me the contents of the package though. That’s up to Gamestop and I’ve received no info on that package shipment.

Got almost all my games, and they all were basically new with covers. I'm satisfied.

Always been curious, can't GS employees search/see your transaction history when you punch in your PUR number? I always get a little uneasy if they notice I've traded in the same set of flips across 3 nearby GSs and they see they are the 4th heh.

They can but the average employee doesn't care, especially if you're friendly and chat with them.  This time of year is really rough on them.

 

There's one manager in my area who looks at my transaction history, but after I complained about him to corporate, he only makes snide remarks ("Oh, buying a 4th copy of God of War, I see") rather than refusing to do his job and accept my trades.

Does anyone have a list of games they traded in that they can post? Or a receipt?

Also, is the extra $5 working with last generation as well? 3DS, PS3, etc...

Thanks!

How the hell do I order the deal of the day for store pickup? It let's me choose my store but never let's me select it...? None of the stores say available but I know damn well it is.

Edit: it says pickup from store unavailable but shows it as in stock. Way to be gamestop.

Did you check every game to make sure they gave it to you? My store forgot to give me one of my games (empty case) and I only bought 3 games.

I did. Friend of mine works there and he and I verified them all. Took a while though.

So does anybody know why nothing is available for store pickup?

At checkout it says all items are available for pickup at this store but they won't swap to pickup. Ffs this is obnoxious. Do I have to wait for 10 for them to open?

Gamestop probably turned off the pick-up-at-store functionality for Black Friday and hasn't turned it back on yet.

Here's how to do it. 

1.  Search store inventory using the GS app to identify a store that has the new / preowned version you want in stock
2.  using web broser, set your home store (top right of browser) to the store that has what you want in stock
3.  go to the item page - it will now let you add to cart and check out with a store pickup order

the good news is, when you to return it to a store, like i did with the bootleg i got, the guy behind the counter may try to give you the full value for it, and not the $25 you actually paid.

Ah man thank you I will remember this for next time. I ended up getting a used copy of outer worlds for $26 after coupons so I could get the other game shipped. Hopefully it has the case.

Is there a 4/20 going on I am wondering how everyone is doing these flips when you can't do store pick up for these deals of the day.

There are a good 150+ games that are flippable with the 4/20. You don't need to do store pick up just buy it for $4.00 each and trade them in for $7-11.20 each. Granted you probably won't find some of the games like Hello Neighbor, Snoopy's Grand Adventure and others in store many of the more common titles are goodss
