It's only lame if you were planning on flipping games instead of giving your resume to Burger King. Otherwise it's fine for people who want to buy games just to play them, and $15 for $60 worth of savings a year is fine.


Some people play more games than you. If I buy 3 newer games in a month, I get a whopping 5 bucks off a 180 dollar purchase, whereas a 10 percent discount would more than pay for itself in one month. That's 18 rodeo cheeseburgers, if burger king math suits you better. :]

The GS Reddit says otherwise. The employees on there claim that their customers are very happy with the changes.

they're russian bots.

So in the AD it says $100 off certain Xbox one x systems but none are cheaper.. when do these sales go live?

man... b2g1 w/o pro or cag16 is kind of lame.


Especially since they seemed to have raised prices on a lot of retro games.

Is it hassle free to exchange a game bought from the b2g1 for another? I want to exchange one of the switch games Im planning on getting tomorrow for DBZ Kakarot.

So instead of just looking at the pdf for the dates that the sale is valid for you'd rather be lazy and have us do the work for you.

Ok no one is being Lazy the Dates on the ad say starting the 19th I dont know if there is another date someone where that I missed....  Im starting to think this site should be renamed to pissyassgamers

Just report him. Clearly a troll or gsdave making another unwanted appearance. Ignore it for now.

OMNIDOUCHE is back! God bless anyone who can come to a gaming deal forum, only to attempt to shame those who use the forum for its intended purpose. Classy and sophisticated.



That being said, sometimes the deals take until 3 AM Eastern or 12 AM Pacific to go live completely. Still not seeing any proper wording on the $5 trade in boost.

Hopefully he gets arrested at Walmart again soon so we don't have to deal with him for a while.

So if I used my points to get a $10 off reward, the fact that it appears to expire on 12/31/19 shouldn’t matter, right? I thought someone here mentioned that it will actually run until March (or sometime) if redeemed now? Any truth to that?

Not sure, but you should get the coupons off the website and not take a chance with Gamestop's incompetence. That is what myself and others have been doing and they expire in March 2020. Been cashing out all my points that way.

 

This B2G1 is the worst. Pro Elite and CAG16 gone, prices not being reduced to offset the loss of discount and stock for almost all games I have on my list still haven't been restocked from the B2G2. Going through the games and saw a bunch that were the same prices used as new.

B2G1 on used is live. CAG16 still not working. Doubt we're getting that back but would be nice.

 

Wow this hurts to see. I wouldn't mind getting some games but without Pro or Elite Pro discount, I might as well buy new from Amazon or Walmart since it's cheaper than $55/each for recently released used games.

I agree with the others. Without cag16 or pro, this sale is really lackluster. I’m going to wait it out and hope they add a promo that stacks.

The main reason why this B2G1 feels unworthy is that we were expecting preowned prices would drop with the removal of pro... clearly not the case. Heck, I was even expecting it to stack with -20% with purchase of a system (it doesn't)

Really hope the trade values hold tomorrow when the $5 extra trade credit goes live. I'd get $40 for 3 games with the bonus.

They're taunting you--if you can get 4 games from a B2G1 sale, they'll give you 4x the points.  It's a savvy way to see if their system has any loopholes by having CAG's do all the work.

I still not even got my dumb $5 welcome coupon or even the monthly $5 reward. I always ended up renewing the Power Up Reward card at some point, but going to let it lapse for good in June.

I bought 2 used games a couple of days ago.

Would I be able to return and repurchase on the spot, in order to get the b2g1?

Anyone have experience with this?

How often do the retro ps2 games come with their actual case instead of some generic sleeve. Might use Gamestop instead of taking advantage of the JJ games OOB sale if they use their actual case.

This is pretty standard stuff as long as the employees aren't jerks. Return/rebuy away.

You can always return stuff that doesn’t come with a case.

If within return window, yep, barring cranky employee.

So looks like the $5 extra per game starts tomorrow and runs at the same time as the 20% extra for PC accessories. Will these stack? If so what constitutes a PC accessory?

Target is running a b2g1 this week too, but doesn't work on switch games.

So we’re saying the $5 extra does not start today but tomorrow?
