Question, is there anyway online to tell if my account has been banned?

I would like to know as well. I think I may have done 5 of one title by accident (misjudged the time since previous trades)

I made another trade later the same day as the fifth title trade, but not since.

It's separate and it resets every 30 days.


I forgot to ask, but does the 4 of the same title per 30 days apply to 4 total cash or credit or 4 cash and 4 credit? thanks again

Damn, forgot my points auto redeemed. Can you use a $5 off anything coupon and a $5 off pre owned in the same transaction?

As I suspected they banned that account from trading in the next day.

Question: Does the $500 dollar limit in one transaction also register the next day or can I just go around trade $500 in one store then drive to another store and trade in $500 again??
Or should I trade in $400 something at one store and then take my doubles and trade in $500+ at another???
Or do you just get auto trade banned once you pass $500?

No.

No.

Yes.

I called up my local gamestop to see if they had MKDD!! in stock so I could get the real cover and they told me that no stores carry gamecube games anymore. Looks like I will now have to try to just find someone that only has the real cover. What a bummer. He told me ordering older games online was a coin flip.

a number of my orders came but out of the 5 only 1 didnt come with a generic case (ew), so after I got my Nintendo Gold points I quickly sold them back (can confirm $5 deal is still going strong) and my credit is now over $300 + i still have 2 more games coming in for an extra $60 :D  

 

on a sadder note, my local Gamestop is closing and another i visited around 3 months ago was closed when I went to visit yesterday. While i'll admit there were wayyy too many Gamestops close to each other it makes me uncomfortable watching them close 1 by 1.

One of my copies of Link's Awakening went from "Preparing for Shipment" to "Awaiting Product Availability". Currently at 40/44 games shipped, with the majority of them arriving today.

My Mario Party and Yoshi just showed up, in original cases. They came in 2 separate bubblers and had their own packaging slips. Each packing slip has a price of $43.99. Originally I paid $80 for 4 games, but was charged $76.36 for 2 games with the other 2 up in the air. There is no mention of Mario Maker or Link's Awakening in my order, so it looks like I ordered each game individually. Decisions, decisions, should I take the store credit or cash because I definitely don't need the store credit, but it's a $15.98 difference between the two? 

 

If I do a return, I get more than what it is trading in for and it won't count towards my trade limit, if other people are thinking of doing the same thing.

YMMV on this, but the store actually does not know the method of payment used when you place the order. As a result, you can actually request cash as a refund if you so wish.

Ok I just went to Gamestop to return an partial order, it was 2x Dragon Quest Builders 2 and 1x Splatoon 2 (the 4th game from the order is still awaiting availability). When I returned it, the employee insisted I keep Splatoon 2 cause it shows free on the receipt and refunded me $107.xx for the 2 copies of Dragon Quest Builders lol. Needless to say I was just as confused and it didn't hit me what happened until I got back in the car.

Got my games 3 out of 4 with generic cases

Dqbuilders 2 came with case

Does the $5 extra include cash? Or is it credit only my receipts show which games were included free

Did go right back into the store and trade Splatoon 2 ?

Just did this, 2 games that came together that I paid for and weren't the free games and got back $110 cash when if I traded them they would've netted me $52. Kinda feel bad, but they've screwed me by sending me no game in a case before so screw them.

Why would they refund you in cash? Your packing slip is your receipt so you clearly didn't pay with cash for online order. Do the employees just not care?

My receipts showed exact price of 0.00 for my 2 free games

I was able to swap out 1 case...I asked if I could exchange 1 game for another of the same price and was turned down they said they would need all the games to process the refund but then I wouldn’t get buy 2 get 2...

So I sold them the 2 games that didn’t have cases got $52 cash back and in the end I paid $19 each for complete copies dragon quest builders 2 and marvel ultimate alliance.

I wasn't going to complain, he asked if I wanted cash so I said sure. He probably didn't care as I had never seen him before so he was probably a seasonal.

Still waiting on availability for 2x Link's Awakening and Dragon Quest XI.  Now that I see folks are returning games, it's making me think I should try that strategy and "forget" to bring in the free games.

 

Oh yeah, I went over the $500.00 cash limit by $18.88...one of the test market stores rang the trade ins base price as the elite price (36.00 base for MUA3 and then 20% on top of that).  However, he didn't take my ID.

 

Question: is the $500.00 cash trade limit against your PUR account or against your ID?  I have a military ID and a driver's license...and they've used my Military ID for the 2 cash trade ins I did previous to yesterday's trade in (3 total cash trades).  Yesterday he didn't take my ID...so am I in the clear?

if you paid with a debit card, they'll refund you in cash.

Received my first B2G2 order today. 

 

Yoshi's Crafted World (generic case)

DQ XI (with case)

Splatoon 2 (with case)

Mario Kart 8 (BRAND NEW?!)

 

Hope my 2nd order (2 shipped) is just as good.

Because the packing slip doesn't verify the payment method,  So as there's no proof as to how you've paid, or rather which card you used, they always pay in cash.  I've returned a lot of retro to my local shop and this was their standard practice.

My area started refunding onto the debit card since it's an available option now. The system used to prevent them, but now it doesn't.

I was not lucky on the cash option today. The cashier knows me too well (traded in games with her for over 4 years now) and she asked if I payed with store credit (she knows all too well that I only have store credit). I paid with a gift card and happened to have it in my wallet. I got $95 back on my gift card (tax included) for 2 games, even though I spent $80 for 4 games including tax. I'm not worried now if they cancel Mario Maker 2 and Link's Awakening from my order because I got my money back.

Is it possible for them to refuse the return if they look up the order number and see it was part of the b2g2? I have a packing slip that states that I paid $50 for zelda
