Can anyone recommend 4/60 switch games. I mostly like retro or indie games. Some games I looked up are 25.19 used.


LEGO Harry Potter
LEGO Incredibles
Crash Bandicoot Racing
Dragon Dogma
Yu-Gi-Oh
Darksiders Warmaster Edition

Someone posted this list earlier. Sorry I don’t remember whom to credit. If someone has more to list, please feel free to add.

Best of luck to everyone participating in this flip. I am right at the trade limit for two accounts already (No ID requirements at my local store), so I am going to take it easy on this one.

 

Considering the fact that they never bothered to address the 4/20 flip for the entire 2 week promotional cycle, there is certainly the possibility that they don't care about potential loopholes for the time being. Trade credit, like gift cards, is recorded as a liability when issued and then recorded as revenue when used. It is why they offer an extra $5 on games that normally trade in for $2 even though they would be making little to no profit before even accounting for other promotions. Trade credit promotions make sense in this case because it incentivizes the average consumer to come to the store to use their credit, which will in turn inflate their revenue. 

 

GameStop has effectively given up on profitability until the next generation of consoles, so it makes more sense for them to maintain their revenue for the purpose of their shareholders at this point. They will certainly care about profitability in the long term, which is why they are making changes to PUR next year, but stacking promotions in an attempt to increase revenue is what makes sense in the short term. We are simply benefitting from the loopholes created from this endeavor.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the $5 bonus on game trade ins is gone, right? (except for Switch games)

 

If so, then it sucks since Redbox is selling Fallen Order for $25 which would have been a good flip.

With my flips I bought a bunch of t-shirts and Legos for gifts. Now that I have a bit of credit leftover I want to get some switch games and bump up my collection. There's a few games in my area I have my eyes on but looking for a few recommendations.

Some locations can give you a hard time about it, but I traded a Redbox game this past weekend.

They do.  Some of the games I bought from Gamestop last week were redbox rentals and at least one gamestop store charged me a refurb when I flipped it back.

At the top row with the replay to topic, there is a "new" feature of Link post only. It should help you find it faster.

Seems a lot on sheet, even now, is a no-go for 4/60, though; AC3, Bendy, Banner Saga, Call of Cthulhu, bloodstained; all showing 27.99-29.99.

So a bit annoyed, I have 3,960 points. Not enough for a $5 cert....

Not planning on buying more stuff, other than persona.

I've started receiving 1st party switch games (3 total now) that are really junk titles (latest was Troll and I with a Mario Party sticker) with a 1st party game sticker on it.  Poorly printed and placed stickers, at that

Wow I heard about that happening, but employees were supposed to make sure the code on the label matches the code on the back of the cartridge, guess they aren't doing that anymore.

When I trade them, some do, some don't.  With the sheer number that I order, it's bound to happen, but it's just frustrating.  I've had it happen on 3DS and Vita too.  I hate people

4 for $60 works on retro on the website. Maximum Carnage is a good flip if you can wait.

I mean, thing to remember is that lots of people in here are buying and selling back games for high-4 digit returns every year. Others are grabbing steelbooks for games they intend to sell right back without them; still others look to burn employees on surveys (potentially costing jobs, or at the very least bringin' them down for a few days) for what one party sees as busy-body JDing, and the other sees as swatting down someone using an exploit just as immoral as re-stickering for personal profit.

 

Everyone has their own standards of morality.  All parties probably just see it as just a smart move, stickin' it to the man for a bit of extra cash they can afford to lose; it's just that, while people here just don't necessarily care about costing gamestop (the faceless entity) money, the people doing this also don't necessarily care about costing whoever next buys it FROM gamestop (the faceless individual). Heck, they might even expect GS to  be competent and catch it before it even reaches that point (lol)

 

Still freakin' sucks, since it's a massive pain in the dick for the buyer - but I get why it happens, too.

 

E; from a few hours later, since I aint about to be that guy obnoxiously multiquoting 5 pages deep - didn't at all mean to make any point about legality here, or even try to compare any of the listed examples against each other directly on some kind of quantifyable scale-of-badness. Rather, just playing devil's advocate on a moral question and mind set that interests me; above's how I've always interpreted the general people behind this kind of corporate fraud, return-a-brick-in-the-box type of shenanigan.

Some people care about staying within the written bounds of rules/policies/laws, even while bending them as hard and far as they can go; others are willing to cross that line, but justify it with a generally smaller scale and internalized assumption there's no real victim. Could probably get a spicy argument going between the guy who scored $200 bucks restickering Dora the Explorer vs the guy who flipped himself into owning half the store's inventory over a year.

Most people would agree that removing a sticker of one game that's practically worthless to pass the game off as a much more valuable game is wrong.  50/50 state laws would agree that this sort of fraud is criminal theft.

 

You're comparing apples to oranges.  If someone thinks that buying low and selling high is morally wrong, then why would that same person shop at Gamestop (since that's what all businesses that sell good do).  The re-stickering is fraudulent theft.
