Hmm. Trade bump but only promo I saw on website is 5 dollars toward a pre order. Is there something I missed?

I got excited when I checked the OP, then I saw the dates :p

Someone mentioned bonus toward digital currency was dead

Nope, that's the only active trade promo right now.

Even more evidence that they are getting smarter and targeting this stuff now. These things aren't coincidences IMO.

This strategy is a losing battle in regards to trade totals and used games in stock per store. If boomerangs disappear, then so do all of those trades. The uninformed will still trade in at bad values, but anyone else will find an alternate means to sell their used games and the numbers will reflect that. I can't speak for other areas, but used switch games stock is still hit or miss here. I almost always have to rebuy to utilize b2g1...i hope the stacking coupon comes back.

as an aside, i traded in my ps4 pro towards the pubg xbox1x and a free copy of madden. i asked for a gift receipt so that my wife can return it at some point, but they gave me a gift receipt for the xbox and another gift receipt for madden. is this normal or are both usually on the same gift receipt? thanks

I assume they still don't take XBox One Kinnect adapters?  Even though the app is showing me TIV.

You just missed by a week, the 50/60/70% promo on game and accessories.  I traded in all of my extra controllers last week.  So you'll likely be waiting a while for the next one.

What’s the code to search the top values on the site? I tried mwtaug2018 & that didn’t work.

Thanks! Also to get multiple $5 bonuses do I have to do each game as an individual trade, or can I add to multiple existing preorders in each transaction to get the bonus on multiple game trades?

wow, cant believe they bumped up SoT even more, hopefully my gamefly order comes today like scheduled

Thankfully the bumps last until Monday.  All of the games I planned on trading in eventually got the bump treatment.

 

Also, I don't think we can call this a "stealth bump" since they have it advertised on the trade screen.  Weird

You can do multiple preorders on the same transaction to qualify for each eligible $5 boost.

But what if I’m adding to existing ones?

Yes. I traded in 2 games and added the TIV evenly to 2 existing preorders. Received $5 bonus on each.

They take the adapter but not the Kinect. There was a post on the GS subreddit last night about an employee taking it in trade and buying it right away. They are hard to find right now. Should be able to sell it some where else for more.

Guess now would be a good time to trade a PS4 game towards my Spider-Man pre-order. Got the email stating "you have 5 games worth $83.xx in trade credit." I may let go of one of them but not all five, the other four I want to play.

I actually see a $10 trade in on the actual Kinect XB1 sensor now.

It has had a TIV since winter at least.  However when I go to the store I was told we don't take them.   I also asked at a different store that I like better near my job and was told they don't take them either.

 

Today it seemed like it got a small bump (or I just noticed the Elite Pro price).  I only ever used it in FH3.  Without the adapter it is useless on the S I had and the X I just got.  Not paying $80+ for an adapter on EBay or Amazon.

If GS follows their history of offering trade promos, there will be a tiered trade promo at the end of August and a bonus trade toward Madden followed by NBA2k19.

Thanks for the reply. I acquired the controllers after that promo ended and was wondering if I should just trade it in now or wait for a promo. :-?

Edit: Didn’t realize the $5 bump was only on current gen games.

Resident Evil 4-6 on the PS4 would be decent flips.
