Saw that Switch dropped $25. Glad I got it over with. This new dock is different though (not sure how new it is). My switch is much more wobbly inside and the gap is noticabely larger. I had a launch switch

Beast Quest (XB1) trades in for $4.00  base and $4.40 Pro. Can be bought for $5 from most Five Below stores. Check the movie bins they place along the sides of the aisles. It might be worth a try if have a Five Below in your area.

I noticed it too. I thought I got a defective dock. I think they made it wider to avoid the scratching issues they had before.

I’m so close to my $2,000.00 limit. I know some of you have multiple PUR accounts, how does that work for stores that take your ID to trade, for example? I was gonna sign up for a second account with my wife’s info, is that gonna be a hassle if I have to use my ID, or will the scanning of my ID cause issues with their visibility of going over the trade limits in this way? Thanks!

You wife would have to do the trade ins with her ID. If you use yours it'll link the accounts and ban both.

Yeah, its gotten to the point for me that I just hope and pray that Amazon price matches any new items on sale at Gamestop. You may get it slightly crushed from Amazon in a bubble mailer, but at least you are getting a sealed and unused copy.


Indeed. In the future, I’m just going to get BB to price match GS’s low inventory items. I’ve never had an issue with BB shipping and I’m pretty confident I would be able to reach their customer service, which I can’t say about GS.

That’s a hassle... I would imagine this wouldn’t happen if I traded in at stores that didn’t require ID for trades, right?

Pretty sure every store requires ID for trades. GS operates on pawn shop laws. You've been to stores that don't require it?

Pretty sure every place requires ID for trade in due to property laws.

Finished my flips until next year I think. Sitting pretty on some decent trade credit and can use the points to buy toys on clearance for donating this time of year. Gamestop may not intend it but they are going to be quite generous.

Almost none of the stores around me ask for ID. Maybe because I give my phone number? It still happens occasionally though, in which case it may be because of local laws.

Careful with that. The reward certs will take off from the original price, not the clearance price, so their value will be greatly decreased. I'd use the reward certs for Amazon cards or something else that's full price so you get their full value's worth.

Good to know, thanks for the info! I may just use some of the trade credit to buy toys then and like you said use the certs for gift cards.

So playing Rage 2, but not feeling it imo. Combat is fine, but the open world kills the game for me.

Enemies are pretty brain dead and just rush you. Driving is clunky, just not good overall.

Bought it as part of B2G1, so rather not return it. It was around $30 for 3($18) games.

 

Is the $5 extra for ps4 games still going? Tempted to trade in for $7 + $5 bonus for $13.

Funny how I had a way better time with anthem and that was $4...

Reward certificates still work on Amazon cards? I was under the impression that was killed months ago

GameStops on Indian reservations don’t take ID. Find your nearest casino, then “search here” for GS in the area

Confirmed for XB1, PS4, Switch games, today.

 

Took the last of the "multiple" copies of games I got on the 4F$20 special in today.  Also traded in the last of my games B2G1 from Black Friday that were duplicates.

 

With everything said and done, I got to keep 9 $55 games (with original cases -- yeah I bought multiples, just to ensure one would be complete), several cheaper $40 "good" games, a bag of T-shirts (B1G1), and a couple sets of the new pairs of Joy Con controller colors (full price, but the colors pop!).

 

Pretty much broke even on store credit, and I think I'm about done for the month - some wiggle room if there is a Christmas special, but I'm not counting on it.  Some people have mentioned another Pro-Days style sale - meh.  If I'm trade banned .. then, pfft.., Elite expiring very soon anyways.

 

That wouldn't happen 'til Christmas anyways.  I'll be sure to drain the account beforehand.

 

I might need to spend some points so I can continue to read Game Informer on the toilet.

 

Best Thanksgiving ever!

Trade that fucking garbage in. I bought it for $20 when it was on sale a couple weeks before BF and absolutely hated it. Easily the worst game I've played this year one of the worst this gen. I got screwed and traded it in instantly this week when it was only $4 base, but now that its $7 it's a no brainer. You'll feel better that the game is no longer in your presence.

I received and empty switch case that I get from B2G1. Now I’m waiting to see if I can get an exchange or a reimbursement.

Did wrong math. $7 +$5= $12.
Also trading in madden 19, paid $10 and will trade in for $7 after bonus. $19.90 total after PUR.

Of all the multiple GS stores, I've been to, only 2 ever asked for ID.

 

The first was to sign up for a PUR (Power Up Rewards) card.

 

The Second was in a seedy part of another town - the one and only time I went there - I can see why I never had a desire to return - the employees were super cool, but the customers couldn't be bothered to pull their pants all the way up - while playing cheesy Hip Hop at a volume I could hear all the way from the XB1 section to the PS4 & Switch sections I was shopping at.

 

At the second location, I did challenge them, asking why they needed my ID.  They said they would decline the trade if I didn't have an ID.
 

It's probably one of the locations shutting down next year, as a guess.  I suppose the crime / theft rate is bad.  I went during the day -)

 

Every other store I've been to, when I make a transaction, they ask for phone number, I pull out my PUR card, they scan it, and there are no questions regarding an ID.  Even stores I've never been to.

The city that I normally go to, doesn't have an ID policy but the city the opposite way has the ID policy at both of their Gamestop's so I would imagine it's a town by town thing.

Similar situation except I received the wrong Zelda game. Waited on hold for 45 minutes, had to hang up. Called a local store and they said to call. Called again, waiting 23 minutes and they are sending the game again and asked me to return the wrong game to a local store after I receive the correct game (I don't understand how that will work...I walk in and say you guys messed up, take this and I'll leave?).

My account got flagged. Started flipping today and when I got to the 3rd store(up to this point only traded in 8 games). Some guy came from the back and said he was going to call all the stores in the area give them my name so they would not take trades from me. He said I wasn't trade banned but he knew what I was doing. I asked how he knew he said" the system saw that I bought and traded the same games in the same day".

Today I wiped my tears and went back and bought/traded a batch under alt. account. Found out my main account received 30 day trade ban. I asked a manager how did my account get flagged. He told me games bought and sold in the same day(same account) get red flagged. Take it for what its worth. I might do another run today before closing.

Stores only ask for Id here if your receiving cash...if your receiving credit it just your number and signature confirming the trade
