The 20% bonus trade in towards DBZ doesn't stack with the $5 bonus on Switch games right? Which one is the better promo?

If you are trading Switch games with a base value less than $25 (but $2 or greater), then the $5 promo is better. Switch games with $25 base value, they are equivalent. If you are trading anything (games for other systems, or Switch games greater than $25 base value), the 20% is slightly better, though personally I don't think it is enough of a value difference to make it worth the pre-order unless you actually want the game and need to have it at release.

So much for those trusting the GS app. Looks like they lied about the B2G2 ending later than 1/29

So out of 27 orders, I got my first cancellation. 2x Luigi’s Mansion and 2x Dragon quest XI. Still pending on 11 games but those are all awaiting availability. Everything else expected delivery date or tomorrow or Tuesday but that’s not likely haha

Damn. Were those games all part of the same order? Curious if you're going to bother to contact customer service over correcting the cancellations or just let it slide with the amount you bought. Keep us posted!

Just left a GS prestige store, I asked the manager and he said the b2g2 ends today, the signage is referring to the winter sell. Idk I would get all my orders in just in case.

Typical Gamestop.  It said it under the B2G2 sign, but they would say it refers only to some other deal

Are there any PS4/Xbox games with a $30 base?

Store signage says 1/1 as well

I got excited when I saw this on a sign yesterday, but the 1/1 was referring to the Winter Sale, while there was a 12/29 underneath the B2G2 portion

Could I trade $33 base Switch games in + $5 bonus trade credit + 20% bonus toward Dragon Ball Z? I assume no since both offers say "Cannot be combined with any other offer."

 

Would it be in poor taste to take the 20% offer ($39.60 total) and then cancel the pre order? I believe I remember others saying you only need to apply $5 to the pre-order (allowing to get the 20% bump on multiple trade ins).

 

End goal is to use trade credit toward Animal Crossing (3/20).

Put $5 towards DBZ then next time you go in tell them to cancel and put towards Animal Crossing. Doesn't hurt their preorder numbers that way.

I got some of my Christmas purchases today. I opened one package and inside was Hello Neighbor for PS4 and the other game was Dragon Marked for Death for Switch.  I never ordered these.  They had the packing slip for me but for a game that I did order (Fire Emblem 3 Houses).  I was annoyed until I opened the next package which had FE in it and the identical packing slip.  So I got the game plus these two.  No idea who was supposed to get them.

I got my buddy into flipping during the $5 bonus last week. He used my elite pro acc to buy and his pro to sell, which is awesome for me cause of the extra points I accumulate even when not flipping. During B2G2 I made a plan with him when I started to notice the lack prime switch tradable games out there. Basically both of us would go into a gs store fairly close apart to each other, trade in all our best shit, and then we would drive to where the other just traded in their stuff, play dumb and ask if they had a switch title the other just traded-in in stock pre owned. They would usually be like oh yea someone just dropped it off and have the games behind the counter so i would ask to look at the whole stack an pretty much buy it all or id take the 1 or 2 good titles off the shelf and ask if they had a mario game he just traded in preowned and look at the stack again and buy most of it lol... this was a good last hurrah. Only a handfull of times did they sell one of the games we just traded in, but then we'd just pick out a lower trade value switch game like lets go pikachu or hyrule warriors or something..

Does CAG give out awards? Because him and his friend should get one for the most creative way to maximize profit.

A long time ago, yeah, there was an annual awards thing. But that was back when the website and forum actually mattered to the management.

I had my girlfriend flip all of my games the other day in order to get around the $2000 trade limit. I promised to buy her Animal Crossing if she agreed to help. I can attest that flipping is so much easier when someone else is involved.

I don't think it will matter since their computer probably won't apply b2g2 anymore when you check out at the register.

We were only able to do it yesterday because our schedules didnt fit up, also nope we're in chicago. there are so many gamestops here roughly 10 mins apart here its insane. in one of the burbs theres literally 6 on the same road driving for about 20 miles.

Thank you, but honestly if i had someone who is all business like myself we could have made a killing in credit, buddy likes to make small talk and browse around which wasted a lot of time. He also bitches out and buys small items to not look suspicious. I was nice enough to get gpg on a couple games if the dudes seemed cool af tho. Im still sitting on 50+ prime switch games  which I will most likely sell for cash. have enough credit for a new system next year and a couple game, that should be enough for me to stop flipping at gs.. elite pro will expire by then, maybe one last go next summer??? we shall see

You guys must have been what ruined my wife's bday lmao. She wanted a Switch and some games, went to Cermak & Western and they mysteriously moved to Southloop. By the time I got there they were gone again. No hard feelings, she just gets fewer games now.

How did you get around the 5 of a single title in 30 day trade ban rule? I earned around 400-500 credit and im at like 4 on every single switch title. Did you just go over and they didnt ban you?
