Capitalization and proper punctuation are your friends you know.

And the term "pre-owned."

I wonder if this is a *store only* thing or online as well?

It's in the weekly ad so it's probably online too.

Thanks, just grabbed a bunch of PS3 games that I never got around to playing, and probably still won’t.

CAG16 applies to this, finally.

They JUST disabled CAG16. I had a cart ready and couldn't figure out which WiiU titles I wanted and was almost set to go. Ugh!!

I ended up getting Muv Luv, Muv Luv Alternative, Ys: Memories of Celceta, and Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc for $40.
All for Vita  O:)

LUCKY! Muv Luv just ran out when I tried to purchase it. Had to replace that with Shantae Half hero genie.

I'm crossing my fingers these games come in cases.

Exactly. Assume cart only. Same goes for 3DS games.

As much as I like trading in games that are disk only every once in a while, I really wish GameStop required the case. More people would likely buy used, especially from their website if they did this. Aside from actual retro 80s and 90s games of course, or at least have two listings, one for complete and one for disk only items.

I can't say for the rest but I'm pretty sure you might have a hugh chance for both Muv Luv games since they were converted from new to pre-owned and same for me too. :)

Yeah I would buy more used games via their website if it comes complete like Gamefly do. I think it has to do with inventory space. I recalled a conversation between GS employees in-store where they have a guy who comes in weekly into their store and ask for last gen cases/manual (customers recently traded-in) which he sells them on eBay. They usually throw them away in the dumpster weekly so they'd rather give them away.

I feel like I got lucky. I purchased both Muv Luvs and Punchline 3 weeks ago, and all 3 came complete.

Of course they bring this back 4 for 10 after I use by $5 rewards for the month of Division 2. I would have just bought used and bundled it with 3 other games

That doesn't seem right. Instead of trying to make sure it goes into the hands of actual paying customers, or throwing it away so no one gets them they let a random guy have them for free so he can turn around and sell them for a personal profit seems like a shitty thing to do. 

 

If nothing else they could price the empty boxes and stack them on the shelf then put the games in them as they sell them. Or just throw them out so no one takes advantage and it's fair to everyone.

Sounds like corporate had the best policy for fairness: just chuck everything so nobody complains about inconsistent missing boxes/manuals. Then the local store isn’t following policy, causing you to feel disadvantaged.

I was in a store that put their DS/3DS games in the cart only cases as usual, but they actually kept the artwork/instructions in one of their drawers (when applicable).

 

Assuming they had the drawer space available, it did circumvent the "there isn't enough room on the floor" argument.  And then it was a welcome surprise when they started pulling cases out that I didn't expect.

The first option isn't going to happen because of space issues. Gamestop has chosen to get rid of these to clear it up. We can disagree with that choice, but it is their choice ultimately.

 

As for the second, hoping to see good cases and manuals destroyed, creating further scarcity in the future, for some sort of arbitrary fairness is stupid. I've been given cases before by Gamestops too, happens all the time. I don't sell them mind you, but who ultimately cares? It's a good thing that these are back out there and not just being destroyed. The guy selling them is likely making peanuts considering what these go for on their own anyway.

Two of my 4 ps vita games arrive with their box and artwork. Assuming that they didn't come with a manual, then both game are CIB condition which I'm happy with that. :) Two more to go.

Does the 2 for 2 work for the $5 reward each month?

It did not want to with the the 4/$20 but I'd be curious about this sale as it could apply to a single item (as the coupon is intended).
