Looks like the 2x and 4x points promos are starting to get credited and my hypothesis that all transactions that included 4 preowned games would get 2x/4x was correct. So trading in $900 worth of games + buying 4/$10 + renewing for 15,000 points = 18,200 x4 = 72,800 points.

So basically a year of pro and 29,600 points for free!

Edit: The extra points were added to the corresponding transactions so any returns might negate the correct point total, but next time this promo rolls around consider spending all $900 trade in on actual games (preorders didn’t reward any points to multiply) and try and get that 6 digit points transaction :)

I keep reading conflicting reports. Does the monthly coupon work on used games or ymmv?

Just used it earlier today to get Epic Mickey 2 on Wii U for free.  So it works on used games.

Been a while, can credit be used for Netflix, Hulu, etc.? I did so months ago but not sure if it still works.

I just checked, I got 66,000 points from one transaction. I traded in a Switch lite and some PS4 and Switch games. Then I bought a new regular switch and 3 switch games. Renewed my pro and bought a few cheap PS4 games. I did pre-order a few things to get the $5 extra for my game trades.

I'm out of trade ban jail, time to go nuts and build up more credit!!!

 

 

If it hasn't already been mentioned, Anthem is trading in for $3, so that's a nice flip from when it was $4 back in December.

Yeah, he means that if you bought it back in December during the holiday sales when it was only $3 or $4, now you can double your investment.

 

It was trading for $1 when it was on sale, so the value has rebounded a little.

Yea I’m just saying because last week it was $8.99 and Xbox One version trading for $3 was a good flip for 4 for $20

Seems like a bad idea to draw attention to yourself so soon after your ban is lifted. But you do you. Just don't come bitching that your banned again, and for even longer this time.

How did you find out you were unbanned? You just attempted a trade and it went thru? I was banned in late December and tried to trade in a few days ago and it still wasn't lifted yet. Been using my gf account for flips.

Main things that stood out are an extra 20% credit towards any accessory >$50 (like controllers) and a new (?) section called "Top Trade Values" where Mario Odyssey, Party, Sword, and Shield are worth base 35 credit.... and 4-for still going on (presumably still in-store only)  :twoguns:

Okay, I have my monthly coupon but my PUR Pro expires in the middle of the month. Will I be able to use or even still have my coupon when membership expires???

 

Also, does anyone know if you can ue the monthly coupon for a preorder and then the next month's coupon when you pick it up?

Thanks for posting this! Gonna dump off Division2 right now. Those top switch games with the accessory bonus+pro should make values $45.50each. I got a nice batch I'm sitting on.

According to my local GA, the pre-orders are now closed (sold out).

 

It was discussed on Reddit that GS ordered 80k units nationwide, expecting to initially sell half as much.  Oops.

 

But it is a great time, in the end.  I guess they didn't account for all the folks not interested in Animal Crossing, just liking the system design / colors.   Also a V2 system.

 

If they ordered 150k, they might have been better off, who knows (or maybe the Reddit numbers are off!) ... however ... selling out however many they bought -- in only a few days .. oh my -- you missed the target audience completely :D

 

There's no money to be made with rejected pre-orders .. just say'in.

Notice how they added the $49.99 and up so the little $0.99 piggy wouldn't trigger the 20%... and I have a feeling there will be some tighter rules on needing to pay off the entire accessory to use the bonus.  :dunce:

I bought some of those 'lil piggies.

 

They actually work as a suction cup phone holder.  I can't complain. 90 cents well spent.

Sorry you had to go through that. What happened with your XBL/PSN/NN/Steam accounts? I don't do family law but I was always curious what would happen to those accounts if they were shared

So I didn't lose the games in my divorce but rather during the marriage. I was in a very tough spot financially. Made decisions to sell off a bunch of Xbox 360 and PS3 games and limited edition consoles. Felt a roof over my head and food on the table was more important. I look back and wish I never did sold those items. I wish I instead found a different avenue or just left her before it got worse.

As far as digital accounts during a divorce. I don't know but if I had to guess the owner of the account just keeps it.

It's tough finding good condition of the games and consoles I lost let alone finding certain titles. I am slowly rebuying what I can find. I am loving the 4 for 10 and 4 for 20.

As far as I know, once you get the coupons you keep them until used or expired. So you should still have it even after your membership lapses up until the coupon expires.

No coupons on pre orders.

Some 4/20 games received minor trade bumps. Dark Souls III and Call of Duty: WWII are base $3 now.

From what I saw in stores yesterday and just now checking the app, Dark souls 3 preowned price was raised and no longer qualifies for 4/20
