I wonder how quickly game sales decline at GameStop even further, now that they have changed my incentive to purchase only 1 game a month.

Was excited to get (and spend) the 5 dollar certificate today. And...no certificate....judging by everyone else here, I guess I shouldn't be surprised...but...what?

I'm lost.

I just got an email from GS that says my new Pro perks are activated but I sure as heck still don't have the $5 coupon anywhere in my account

     Well, my points are finally back to what they were yesterday morning.  The `Lifetime Points' are still down around 8000 points, so I assume someone actually just went in and manually adjusted the points total.  So even though they keep having bizarre things happen, at least they eventually work things out?

 

     Nope, my points still keep changing, seemingly randomly.  My points are quite a bit higher again this morning; they were down to around 4000 last night and now they're up to 11000.  My `Lifetime Points' are down even more than they were yesterday though.  Not that it matters, but at least yesterday they were going down in sync.

My last hurrah: picked up 2x PS4 DS4 controllers from the Deal of the Day.  This was my last order with elite pro, it brought them down to 20+tax.  Picked em up and they were brand new, sealed.  It's been bittersweet GS

Lol my buddy asked for gift receipts on all the switch games he was buying during the b2g2 with my elite pro discount. So he was paying $88 for the 4 games. Now he's been "returning" them with the gift receipt and asking for trade credit but they've been giving him straight up $54.99 plus tax in cash  :rofl:

 

Honestly. Fauk em, im glad he's taking their money. Fuck you GS for taking away my elite pro!

Just wanted to see how many points I've accumulated over the years for my lifetime points and surprised it 556k. I'm sure others have a lot more though.

At least the employees won't make stupid comments about how much you've saved when you're trying to fly under the radar.

Kinda want to see last-day-on-the-job style meltdown vids for this.

Anyone know how long the 4 for 20 deal will be good for? Didn't see it listed in the online ad but swear I saw signs up at local store a week ago. Also is it for any 4 games $9.99 and under?

Should be through at least this sunday. Yes its 4 for $20 on any $9.99 and below and 4 for $10 at $4.99 and below.

Went to the local GS that was closing for their final price drop. Had some good deals like anything used that was $20 or less was 5 for 5. Unfortunately mostly picked clean aside from some OK DS games. Switch games were still at 40% off new. Picked up Shovel Knight Treasure Trove and Pokemon Sword. Still a ton of non-gaming things left and XBox One X consoles for $318 (not cheap enough for me).

And how many of the games that you were buying with elite were they making money on?  Personally, gamestop hasnt turned a profit on me in years.  If most of the people from this thread start going less, GS profits probably go up.

I stopped into a store tonight to pick up a digital copy of Mario Kart for Switch and the $5 coupon worked on it. $36 works for me since I’m getting full points.

So haven't kept up since Christmas.

TL;DR please.

 

From what I've heard/read, is it the $5 monthly certificate and store closings?

kind of an awkward moment when the employee taking in my trades for GoW and Horizon commented on how good the condition of the cases were, and again when he opened to look at the discs, "wow these are basically brand new", told him i didn't need the physical anymore since I bought them digitally (for almost half the price I paid originally and what they were trading in for, but I left that part out)

 

they were unwrapped 5 mins before I went in the store  :-P

Is Kakarot Guaranteed to love? And would they be ok with me trading in for the bonus and then returning it for another 60 after unwrapping it?  :razz: Would it help if I put some trade credit towards another preorder?

Yes, it's Guaranteed to Love. Most stores will be fine with you doing that, but I recommend leaving for a little bit before you come back to trade it in.

Does it have to be the same store I bought it form, or say, one down the street?

CSAC in Cali still in effect plus the 10% still make a okay flip. Probably gon use my remaining credit on XB cards to purchase a Series X for Microsoft directly. RE3 CE most likely gon be my last purchase from GS.

 

Thanks for the idea, didn’t think about getting series x directly from MS.

Is there any incentive to buying from Microsoft? I only ask because I can pick up the Series X launch night if I bought from Gamestop. 

 

 

 

So since I am already pro I don't get a $5 reward certificate this month? I have not received it yet.

One incentive (?) is the off chance that the store from which you preordered the launch console ends up closing b/c their lease is up. I assume that not only would you have to get a refund (doubt they would relocate the preorder), but at that point miss out on a launch console. Another incentive is that MS will probably offer launch day delivery which means trading two potentially inconvenient trips to GS (getting the preorder and getting the console) for receiving it at your doorstep whatever time it is delivered
