Are there any good apps out there that I can use to search what games are already in my library / Game Pass / PS Now when used game shopping?  A few times now I have gotten home after finding a "great deal" only to realize I purchased a duplicate or something in one of the services I subscribe to.  I would really like to stop being such an idiot..

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.

MY MAN~!

Even the store manager here was confused by the $5 monthly promo. I did a 4/$20 deal today and she asked if I wanted to use it towards the deal. She went ahead and check before finalizing the transaction but it didn't apply.

I couldn't find anything I wanted to use the coupon on so I went ahead and used it on a $10 PSN card, which turned out fine.

I just tried to Pre-order the deluxe version of avengers on ps4 but my receipt said bundle edition... Does anyone know what I just pre ordered? It was $90 instead of $80? He said he didn't see a "deluxe" so what did I buy?? Standard edition and season pass? Standard edition and action figure like the jedi bundle?

He lied to you. The deluxe edition is $79. You ordered the duped edition. He probably tossed in a Flunko Pop.

Don't redeem your points for online certificates.  They are well known for not working period, and you'll just end up dealing with customer service to get your points back.

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.


Even if you swapped shells and developed drift later on, Nintendo will still fix it.

I sent my swapped shell joycons in this past week and got it back fixed and drift free. Mailed it out Wed and got it back that same Sat.

The GA said, nope, look, this coupon will take $5 off the highest value item, because it's a monthly cert.
...
Naturally, I can only say it worked in this circumstance.


Just as a clarification, all certificates work like this. They apply only to the highest value item they are valid for, and will not interfere with sales/deals of a lower value.

 

This register logic also means you cannot apply two different value certificates to two different items in the same transaction, even if one certificate will cause another item to be the more expensive one.

Same games that are always on sale probably: Mario + Rabbids, NBA 2K, Borderlands 3, etc. Hopefully Im way wrong and there will be some good stuff on sale.

So I recently moved and found 2 extra Wii Sports that I have for some reason. They are pretty scratched up though. Will Gamestop still take them?  The credit was $10 last I checked.

I wonder if this is good on Amazon gift cards...

Also can the bonus cash be used on gift cards?

Gamestop's new policy is to butcher the TIVs of games that they had for Top Trade ins, the next week. Mario Odyssey, Mario Party, Pokemon Sword and Shield dropped to $20 base TIV. They should go back up eventually, but I was just pointing out what they were doing now.

Yea, that is lame. We'll see how long they take to recover...

 

One of the more trafficked stores near be seemed to have 90% turnover recently (didn't recognize anyone on a weekend) and this particular associate auto-rung-up GPGs with a B2G1 without asking.  Like super fast, like trying to time in .5 seconds before I swiped!  :dunce:

Anyone able to confirm is the 4/$10 and 4/$20 are still going on in store? Any idea of when it ends?

Also - do GS employees give you a hard time if you try to use a $5 off preowned coupon on a $4.99 game?

Lastly - I can confirm that the $5 monthly PUR coupon indeed WORKS on Xbox one and psn cards (it keeps getting asked)

In other words, GS is trying to close loopholes so they can stay in business. How dare they!?

 

This is what they should always have been doing. Flippers are customers GS is far better off without.

 

Close the loopholes, manage the TIVs better (e.g., drop the ones when you have too much inventory), and otherwise get rid of predatory customers.

That's not a loophole though. They raise the values, get more games, then drop the value to avoid getting excess inventory. Not sure how that hurts flippers.

4 for $10 and 4 for $20 are still on-going. According to the Weekly Promo sheet.. they currently have no end date. But Gamestop reserves the right to end a promotion at any point in time.

 

I've never had an issue using a $5 certificate on a $4.99 game.

Nothing, no point to make a scene with a new employee. They play their games I play mine ;)

Having B2G1 and 4/$10 on the same transaction correctly reduced the price of the correct games from 54.99 to 0 and 4.99 to 2.5. I was surprised!

I finally got a response from CS saying that they will cancel my membership and send me a refund check.  Here's hoping I actually get it and that it's for at least close to what the remaining value of my membership is.

With the sale of $100 off Xbox One X they have the list price as $329 yet the "sale" price is $249.  Anyone think it would be possible to get a price adjustment?

It's because it's listed in the ad as originally $349.99 for a preowned Xbox One X.  So it would be very YMMV if you can get a employee to price adjust.

Your chances are close to zero.  Please don't clog the customer service line.  Please don't encourage people to try to call on your slickdeals post.  It's painful enough for people to call in with real problems.
