W can expect a prestige day soon correct?

Not that soon, I think it will be closer towards Christmas/New Year.  It only occurs 4 times a year and the previous one landed on Sept 22nd.

Somebody mentioned in the Gamestop thread about a week ago that they were told by a Gamestop employee that the next one would be on 12/8.

Really?  Not saying anyone is wrong but having Pro Days, Black Friday, and Prestige Day all within a month seems a bit off to me.

Certain stores meet their goals, Gamestop calls them a prestige store, and they run a sale exclusive to those stores.  https://www.gamestop.com/stores

It will tell you the prestige store(s) in your area.

my local store finally hit prestige - looks like 3 or 4 within 25 miles of me have recently hit it as well.

 

Maybe they lowered the goals?

Sry, how do I know if it's a preistege store or not from that list. It just shows every store in my area.

It would say Prestige at the end of the store name.

Thanks, looks like zero stores near me. I knew a couple other zip codes and I need to drive at least 30 minutes one way to get to a preistege store. :( Not that I'll need anymore games after Black Friday for awhile. Lol

Hmm .. with Astro bot on sale for $19 next week, my b2g1 price doesn’t seem quite so hot. Think I may return those before the 7 days are up. Although I noticed GS has a gift return policy for All merchandise bought over the holidays ... interesting.

A big part of it is positive survey receipts. They need a certain % and its actually very low but few people do them.

You're not really missing much in terms of huge sales.   Prestige promotions usually are B2G1 on pre-owned products, 10% bonus credit added to trade-ins and off pre-owned titles, and lackluster promos on t-shirts/collectibles.

One of the guys told me that and I literally couldn't tell if he was lying to me for the review or telling the truth.

I hear it all the time and in different states.  I think they're telling the truth.  IIRC, its something really low like 5% of all surveys are completed and positive.  They always want to do everything on the same receipt to reduce their number of receipts.

Have had good luck so far with all my games being complete even the vita ones. And the switch games I've gotten have had the gold coins unredeemed. Hoping the last 3 games I have coming follow suit!

I would rather have the steelbook than the codes. The DLC didn't seem like much other than the bank robbery mission.

I received my "new" copy of Detroit today from the Pro Days Sale. Game came in a cd sleeve with no case...anyone ever gotten a similar shipment? My God of War was in a blank clear case that had been taped up, but I got it used, so I didn't expect much from that one.

Some reporting for my shipments as they're coming in:

I opted to get the base version of FFXV for about $6 instead of dropping $20 for the Royal Edition on BF. To my pleasant surprise, I received the Deluxe Edition of the game, with the beautiful steelbook. The Blu Ray movie doesn't really matter and I'm sure the DLC has already been claimed, but pretty cool since this launched at $90.

On the other end of the spectrum, my RDR2 copy is completely torn up and scratched up in a broken case. Gonna have to find a local copy to exchange it for.

The codes were already redeemed. It was kinda a bummer

yeah I usually call customer service and they give me a free return label or a replacement option ..sometimes they let you even keep the game and send you a replacement...or you can goto a local gamestop explain and they'll swap it out after telling you it is a "new" copy since no one has ever bought it before blah blah bullishit
