Hmmm, I wonder how many copies of Division 2 I would have to trade in to buy a Switch. 

If you're Pro and trading in 1 of each at a time, you'd get 38.5 or 40.5 with a $5 preorder for each set. You'd need to trade ~8 sets depending on tax.

Bah Gawd! Lol, thanks for the quick maths. I was joking but I know better than to get myself banned. Would be nice to get that Switch though.

Just FYI some of the games for the most wanted list have different values for each system such as Hellblade and Resident Evil 2.

So just so I'm clear, you could trade 4 copies of the division for ps4 and 4 copies for xbone in a 30 day window and won't get trade banned?

They did this last year with a bunch of games. Surprised they led with Persona instead of Animal Crossing.

I just don't get how this makes any sense for them, not that I am complaining. Pro value is 19.25 and with the 30% on top of that it will be $25 each! Kinda makes me wish I did not only have one more copy to trade in, but I made out pretty well already.


Your math is wrong. After 30% TIV total is $22.75 ($17.50 plus $5.25.)

If anyone is on the fence about getting Animal Crossing, trade 3 copies of Division 2 towards the preorder (costs $12-15 at BB depending if you have GCU still). You’ll more than pay off the game and get $10 PUR cash for the preorder 👍🏼

Tl;dr $12-15 out of pocket (or BB credit) gets you Animal Crossing plus $10 credit at GS.

Is the 4 game limit tied to your account or your ID?

Since it's been forever since I bought anything in-store at Gamestop... the only extra bump promo going on right now is the 20/30% when putting your trade towards a particular pre-order title?  If you don't see anything you want, do you just pre-order something anyway and then cancel it later?  I'm looking to flip Div2 at a few stores but don't fancy driving around to them all again to cancel pre-orders, just to make en extra $3.50 a title.  Can my most local store see pre-orders at different locations, and cancel them?

They can see preorders at other stores. I got flak from a manager last well saying that i had multiple preorders at different stores. Not really issue unless you get a JD that wants to investigate your account

good news, since everyone has asked over and over, gamestop did away with trade limits AND best buy did away with purchase limits, go crazy everyone so we dont have to read the same questions over and over next time there is a decent deal.

I haven't done any flips in a while, but this Division thing is WAY too good to pass up.

Yeah.  For PS4 there is only one copy to be had around here.  XBox seems to be more readily available.  Put in an order for one on each console will trade it at lunchtime.  Might grab a few XBox copies and trade them tonight or tomorrow at the two GS near home.

From what other people posted that is a state / county law that places have to prevent the sale of stolen property (pawn laws).

Yeah in the last year or so the county I live now does this.  They didn't used to.  Not sure about the one I work in.  Will find out today when I trade The Division 2.

Is the best trade in on a 1S right now $119? Looking at 1TB S is $95 and if I say put it towards a preorder get the extra 20%= $119.

Console trades don't get the 20% increase. Fine print indicates game trades only.

I only had one Division 2 copy near me last night, and this morning it's gone. Also have a Target that says "limited stock", which usually means they have it but have no idea where they put it lol. Glad to see everyone making out great on another deal though!

My store pickup shows ready.  Will get it in about an hour.  Tonight I might run to the Best Buy near my house and grab two copies for XBox and trade them.  There are two GS near by.
