GameStop is closing a bunch of stores, and when I went into one today I saw they were clearing out new Nintendo Switch Lite consoles for $139.99. That’s a really good deal at $60 off. This is my first post, so forgive me if I’m not posting this right or in the right spot. They had a few in stock and I snagged a yellow one. I checked to make sure it was new, and it was unopened and had a sticker saying new on the side. With tax it was about $151. This is YMMV, since it depends on what’s left in stock when the store is going out of business. Good luck if you try to find one!

GameStop is closing about 82 stores in the US. So this is extreme YMMV.

Some Eb Games are closing down too in Australia.

But none of the consoles/handhelds were on sale.

Perhaps is extremely YMMV in the USA.

thx for the tip, makes no sense why gs would dump a high dollar item that is so small and easily transferable to another store(cost wise), but if they are doing massive markdowns on consoles this whole thing might get interesting.

Yeah. I randomly went by one in Florida on my way to Ikea. Lots of good deals. Bought a switch lite (not sure what I'm going to do with it), pre-owned games were 60% off if they were still in stock. Wanted to buy their ladder because they were selling it for $30 but the logistics to pick it up didn't work.

Can confirm. My local store (RIP) had a few Switch Lites and I bought one. I was going to buy a 3DS but for the same money, switch won out. The deal is 30% off new consoles. Nothing new in stock except one non folding 2DS and a few switch lites. Probably go quick if you want one, and they won't last long if this makes it to Reddit/Slickdeals.

The switch games that were left were just a few things I'd never heard of. The clerk told me those sold off weeks ago at much smaller discounts.

Are the closing locations still accepting trade credit/gift cards or is it cash-only?

I wonder if Gamestop will close all the Thinkgeek stores.  I see that two in Indiana closed already.  We still have one in Greenwood and one in Castleton (both Indianapolis suburbs).  I was sad when they closed the Thinkgeek website.  If anything, with games going more digital, you'd think Thinkgeek type stores would be the way they would want to go to stay in business with video games as a side business.

One of these is pretty close to me. What kind of sales are the closing stores running beyond 30% off new consoles?

I'm somewhat priced that with high demand/easily sellable items, they wouldn't just transfer it to corporate or another store.

40-60% off used games, though everything is seriously picked over and I was interested in some last generation games (Wii/WiiU) but there are "all sales final" all over the store so good luck with those games on discs!

There might have been good deals on accessories at some earlier point but there wasn't anything left that interested me.

Clothing and statues are on sale too but most of that stuff is available for less with sales at the stores not going out of business, because the closing stores seem to be doing discounts against the original pricing as far as I can tell.

Agreed. Not transferring the switch lites to other nearby stores really seems like a mistake. They are "so new" that the GameStop website doesn't even have trade in prices listed for them!

Can I use trade credit to buy stuff at the closing stores?

It’s because they know the whole company is going out of business, they are just keeping it under wraps until it’s announced so the execs can cash out their stock before the drop to zero.

Wonder if the price of a switch lite will drop even lower with all these pending bankruptcy rumors swirling. Seems like corporate is getting pretty desperate and trying to amass as much consumer data they can resell before the company implodes.

For those that have actually seen these for 139.99, is the app/site correctly stating it's In Stock or OOS? Or is the stock for closing stores just wrong online?

#23 Adhiman

I got 2.

All preowned games are 70% off as well, but it was slim pickings at the store I went to.

Also, apparently price drops have been happening on Thursday. Apparently it started at 20% off preowned and just keeps dropping every week.

be sure to update us, because I am pretty sure trade credit is a no go at closing stores. same with any pur benefits (10%, 20% off preowned)

Trade credit works. Paid $280 using 3 different cards.

I can confirm that you can use trade credit. I spent like $268 of trade credit on the games I got and apparently I saved like $1,652 ( based on the receipt savings tag).I went to the azusa, ca store and they had 70% off used games, 50% new games ( for xbox and ps4 but 30% for switch) , 30% consoles and accessories, 60% off collectibles. Everything was mostly picked clean and the only console they had was a xbox one x ($249) and s ($209) and a 2ds xl ($110).

Gamestops untill this year would just close without a closing sale and store managers from nearby stores would come in and transfer out everything to other stores via UPS. They did change that with the recent closings, and only 82 stores in the US are closing now. 200 will total before the end of the calendar year. This is no different than normal. They always close stores this time of year, when leases run out they dont want to renew. Gamestop made a giant mistake not closing some locations when they bought every other company that sold games years back. There are tons of unnecessary and unneeded locations still. Only reason why people are paying attention now is due to the thought they will be gone soon.

 

 

 

It’s because they know the whole company is going out of business, they are just keeping it under wraps until it’s announced so the execs can cash out their stock before the drop to zero.

Thats not accurate.

wish i wasn't at work today so I could go check one out...tried calling to see when they closed but i'm getting the "this store is experiencing technical difficulties" message when I call (google says 8 but I don't want to drive out there if they're closed since it's out of my way)...

One of the stores I ended up not going to offered holding it for a few days for me. I know it’s YMMV but if you get a hold of someone you could ask.

I was able to get a Switch lite at one of the stores closing, but they only had turquoise. Could I go to another store to exchange it for a different color, even though I got it at a discounted price?
