Did CAG16 stop working again? Just tried using it and it gave me the "Coupon cannot be added to your cart" error. I assume they're disabling it in anticipation for B2G1 if that's the case.

I wasn't going to say it, but I had this feeling that coupons were originally being disabled until they could get a hotfix in their software to enable / disable coupon codes at will.  i.e. turn on, turn off with the flick of a button.  Something they couldn't do previously.

 

I'm really not surprised it doesn't work.  Disappointed sure, but not surprised.

 

The new CEO seems adamant about closing loopholes.  Not stated directly, but from stock articles linked to Yahoo's GME's stock page, the CEO is a try hard.  Maybe he'll save the company?

 

Some other articles I've read about digital games having value.  Absurd right?  But some idea's floating around the industry involve the buying and selling of digital games.  Something GS is taking note of, as something perhaps happening in the next 2-3 years.

 

The incentive / trade-off for stores pushing digital, is "free" advertising at B&M's, which is priceless to publishers, essentially making or breaking their game.  Pisses me off that the likes of EA / Activision are big players in this idea .. but, oh well.  I'll still buy physical, as available.

Wait, did CAG16 work recently? I thought it was dead after the last B2G1F? 

 

Anyone think you can use the monthly PUR $5 cert with B2G1F?

I find that companies that actively discourage people from buying from them, don't tend to stay in business very long. I won't be sad when they're gone. As long as gamestop has been around, they've been scumbags

Think it was no more than a couple of days. Someone did post here on Wednesday about it working again but I don't think it was active earlier in the week.

CAG16 is back...


Yeah rookie said it was back a few days ago. Well this sucks and changes my purchase plans. No pro discount, no cag16 to offset tax, and crappier prices than other stores. This deal is getting worse all the time.

Yeah, I had some games in my cart with cag16 in anticipation of the sale, and now when I log back in, I get a message stating that my cart contains an invalid coupon and that I need to remove before I can checkout. Bummer.

If it is a monthly PUR certificate, then I'll say yes - it will work.  Well maybe in-store only.

 

The monthly certs are different from other certs.

 

I bought a whole bunch of games on the 4F$20 deal recently.  I also added in an expensive rare Amiibo.  Lucky me!

 

The GA told me I could use my $5 coupon ... I said nah, it's not going to work, it will just take $5 off one of the 4F$20 games.

 

The GA said, nope, look, this coupon will take $5 off the highest value item, because it's a monthly cert.

 

He applied the coupon, and low and behold .. it worked correctly! [all shitty games were sold for $5 ea, the expensive Amiibo item marked down $5]

 

I was amazed.  So I saved $5 in one ticket, as opposed to making two.

 

Naturally, I can only say it worked in this circumstance.

B2G1 is good to get stuff you want to play, but otherwise with no CSAC available, not really worth it for flipping IMO.

Yea, I'm just going to use B2G1 in-store it to stock up on a few titles lower in stock for the next few CSAC promos. Assuming the new $35 TIV weekly "Top Trade Values" will continue to happen, it could make having at least 3 copies of each a bit more justifiable.

B2G1 is live online. Looks like CAG16 won't be working for this one.

Was going to jump on the preowned Xbox One controllers for $30, but everything I was interested in is sold out.

Anyone remember off the top what the recent converted to pre owned games are?

I know one was indivisible...

I wonder if the buy-4-for-10/20 is ending next week, because there is no mention of it in the ad, and I feel like they have it mentioned in all the previous weeks' ads.

Man, without the Pro 10% OR cag16 working, it's a struggle to even feign interest in this B2G1... Couple that with a bunch of the games I'm looking for not being available online (and there's nothing decent available for pickup locally besides the same ol' stuff) - I can't even find 3 $20-ish titles worth picking up right now, even with credit.

 

It's almost like this deal is just not that good a deal anymore, after all their "changes/revisions/downgrades" to Pro and the website??? Sad times indeed.

That may be to encourage using the b2g1 free because it is the weaker value.

Not almost...just not a good deal anymore :(

Does anyone dare buy preowned Joy-cons for $40? I would imagine they’re a cesspool of worn out and drifting Cons...

I was annoyed by being $0.03 short of the free shipping threshold and without a good filler.  Threw on a pair of blue joycons and will just return them if they're cesspool'd.

What does it mean if inventory says in stock new online when stuff is converted? I wanted to get some of these as b2g1.

Nintendo will fix drifting joy cons for free if you don’t mind sending them in. I buy them on eBay by the dozen. They don’t care.

Through customer service they're supposed to send you a prepaid shipping label (unless that's changed).

Figured I'd use this deal to help round out some 3ds games for my collection. Tales of the Abyss, Devil Survivor 2, and DQ7 for $43 shipped after tax. Not amazing but that works for me

I usually use these sales to swap credit for vintage games which I then make money on, but their prices on most of these games are so goddamn insane I can't believe they're listing them with a straight face. It'd have to be a buy one get two free just to get the prices inline with what the games actually sell for in the real world- let alone be able to make a buck on top of it. $90 Conker's Bad Fur Day, $80 Smash Bros, $75 Mario Party 3, gtfo!

Ordered Xbox One Media Remote (x2) and Xbox One Lunar White Controller - Only at GameStop (x2). Hopefully one of each will be worth keeping. Would be nice if the media remotes are compatible with the next Xbox but I doubt it.

I don't buy online, but there are some other converted games that I found when I went to the store earlier.  And if the games are $9.99 or less, it would make more sense to do the buy 4 games for $20 than it does to do the buy 2, get 1 free.  $5 per game is a good deal for some of these.

 

The buy 4 used games for $20 and the buy 4 used games for $10 sales are still going.  The buy 2, get 1 free is also going simultaneously.

 

Here are my two hauls from this morning:

 

Store 1 - buy 4 for $20

 

Dead Rising 4 (XB1)

Project Highrise: Architect's Edition (PS4)

The Fisherman: Fishing Planet (PS4)

Trine 4 (XB1)

 

Store 2 - buy 4 for $10

 

Hometown Story (3DS)

Lego City Undercover (Wii U)

The Division 2 (PS4)

The Division 2 (XB1)

 

Project Highrise, The Fisherman, and Trine 4 had all been converted to used from new.  I went ahead and added a GPG to Dead Rising just to help the employee at the first store because he never wastes my time with the required GameStop sales pitches.

 

At $2.50 each, it's cheaper to buy The Division 2 on disc than it is to buy the digital copies for $3 on PSN or Xbox Live.

I picked up a couple to change out shells to clear ones. Definitely glad I don't have to spend $70 to do that. I'll be sure to test for drift before I start the process.
