DBZ was a guaranteed one. Outer Worlds wasn’t b/c GS was concentrating on Modern Warfare, & many stores were sold out of Outer Worlds for 1-3 weeks post launch.

You're right; I'm misremembering about Outer Worlds. It had the $10 pre-order rewards credit but was not G2L. Carry on.

You know GS is really pushing GPG when that's the only thing they try to sell you on the day your Pro membership expires.

How does wanting to save a few extra bucks equate to not being financially able to purchase something?  Why would I just shrug and pay extra when I could possibly spend 10-15 extra minutes and possibly save some more money.  Your argument just does not hold water.  Being smart with money can actually mean you end up with more of it in the long run.

I'd say that you've never called Gamestop Customer Service. The store associates don't even know their own promotions and yet you expect a call center employee who has absolutely nothing to do with sales promotions to have a clue what you are talking about? It's more like having the argument of the Lottery. "You can't win if you don't play" The odds are not in your favor but what the hell its only $1-$2 per shot right? And being smart with money can actually mean you end up with more of it in the long run.... ummm if you are smart with your money you wouldn't have to be concerned about a measly $25. Now if you are living paycheck to paycheck working a minimum wage job then yeah that $25 might be a big deal to you. But if $25 is going to make or break your lifestyle then you have much bigger things to worry about then saving a few bucks on a gaming system. I just simply stated that it wasn't worth my time.

Why’s are you on this site then? You seem like you don’t mind paying MSRP on things, why come to CAG?

Because it is hilarious to see all of the deals that this forum doesn't even get in on because they aren't in the know but they act like they're the authority when it comes to deals. CAG was great long ago but now it has also kind of gone the way that Gamestop is headed. The sense of entitlement is real on this forum.

 

And as far as MSRP... you are implying that I pay for anything in the first place with out of pocket funds that is Gaming related. If you were truly a CAG then flipping would pay for everything regardless of a 1 time out of pocket cost with compounding interest on your investments or flips. The whole flip game isn't just "Gamestop" as so many people get caught up in. Expand your horizons. Join some cook groups and move past your narrow vision.

wow, they sure did....guess this will be the new normal moving forward...maybe the pre-owned price drops are coming soon (lol, yeah right :rofl: )? seems like they're starting to actually figure out what they're doing (ie: Cag16 on/off immedately with promotions, etc...)

So if you have all this wisdom why not share it instead of just replying with snarky comments on other's posts?

You are seeing a gathering of people who are addicted to flipping games and live each day to exploit some loophole they find with gamestop just to have the biggest balance in credit... its a sad place

Let's change it up.

Well, I don't know about you all.  But I'm still scratching my head on how to properly flip. 

I mean, I have $0/very little money to spare these days on gaming. How do I turn that into $300/a new current generation video game console?

Also, is I'm not paying attention.  Is 10% off pre-owned still working if I renewed my Pro membership last year?  Thanks ahead.

As in the words of "Loose lips sink ships" You cannot simply just share everything with the general public anymore. We used to talk about Slickdeals and ultimately that is where deals go to die because everyone will jump on it immediately. Posting glitches or loopholes on a public forum just ensures that they will be fixed/closed going forward or even order cancellations. And call me old school but I learned how to fish on my own. Just handing out information doesn't help you out in the long run. That is also why you don't see updated "Sheets" being posted on this forum anymore.

Pretty sure nobody asked you to hand out deals to us dirty plebs..  BTW, can you try to layer on the condescension on a little thicker in your next post?  I'm not sure it would have come though clear enough for some of the lower iq readers in this one.  :bow:

Does anyone know how New converted to pre-owned works? I'm guessing they need to actually apply the pre owned sticker since New/pre-owned should have different SKUs and pricing? Asking because yesterday I saw KH III deluxe edition new for $60 or whatever. I asked if it was new and not pre-owned because I just bought a "pre-owned" one for $15. She said yeah it's new and I just let it be because I felt like even if she scanned it it would still show up as new.

Although I bought a PS4 one and this was XBONE so not sure of both were converted to pre-owned. Would kinda suck if I missed out on a deal cause they didn't get the memo from corporate.

It will be tagged as pre-owned.

 

Gamestop gets a list everyday of price changes, and employees are supposed to go through and adjust them as such. Depending on your store, and if the employees are lazy or not, this may impact whether or not you are seeing converted games as often or not.

 

Both new and pre-owned skus can be active at same time, but whether or not corporate tells them to convert new copies to pre-owned will be up to each store to make sure it's done.
