GS FAQ

 

Where is the weekly ad?
They ended the weekly ad for more rotation of deals. Please check the homepage and deal link for the current deals.

 

I can't find a trade in value for an item?
It might not be tradable or calling a store to find the value may be the only option.


How many copies of a game can I trade in?
​You are allowed to trade in 4 copies of the same game (same system) within a rolling 30 day period.

 

Are there trade limits?
Yes, $500 cash minus some electronic trade ins and or $2000 trade credit in a rolling 30 day period.

 

Where is the weekly ad?
They ended the weekly ad for more rotation of deals in a period.

Can I use the $5 monthly coupon on gift cards?

Yes you can in store but not online please note not all gift cards will apply to this rule.

 

I have a $XX.xx pre-owned reward certificate, and I want to use it on a B2G1 transaction. Should I?
It depends. If the three games are equal value, do not use your certificate. The value of the certificate would be applied to the free game, which would not benefit you. If one game is more expensive, you can use the certificate to make it the same value as the other two games ($5 reward certificate applied to transaction with two $10 games and one $15 game would make all three games $10).
 
 
TERMINOLOGY AND LINGO:
ASL/SL: Assistant Store Leader, Store Leader; manager positions at GS.
B2G1: Buy two, get one free.
GS: GameStop
JD: Junior detective, an employee who is out to get someone
LP: Loss Prevention; this is the department that actually bans accounts after being flagged.
TC/TiC: Trade credit.
TIV/TV: Trade in value, or what a game currently trades for. When posting a TV for a game, always use the base value.

Noticed you posted on Xbox Thread previously. Back 4 Blood is free on game pass and has crossplay to PlayStation and PC.

Anyone deal with Gamestop packages getting stuck in a Pending status after a cancelled Vacation Hold with FedEx? I got back from my trip early so I canceled the hold, but my packages haven't moved from the facility to a truck for 3 days now and the original hold expired today...

Yeah I'm hesitant to go for most of these because I feel like the chances to get burned are high, but the risk seems to be lower with those two. 

 

That being said, great time to check your other local game stores, pawn shops, etc with these absurd TIVs.

this is the gamestop thread, nobody is talking about playing games here, he wants to buy them to profit trading them back in.

Where do you see the end date? I just checked the email and don't see a cutoff anywhere.

Speaking of B4B... I got the Back 4 Blood promo hat for free from Gamestop randomly for my kid to wear around and get funny looks as he's 5.  :razz:

 

Almost all the pre-owned late 2021 titles are pretty safe to hold until the price is right!

Hey now! Plenty of us buy them to throw in the backlog and never play them (anytime soon).

Not yet, but I'd hope there will be one closer to release.

I just checked the "Your stuff's s worth $x in GameStop Credit.  Use it Now!" email and it doesn't list an end date.  Usually bumps last until close of business monday, if you happen to be busy this weekend.  It could end any time though.

 

Its all messy though, the link gamestop sent out for the most wanted promo shows the list from 10-15-21 lol

Do you have to trade in the case with the game to get the trade in value/credit?

no but you should for the better of everyone. Garbage in/garbage out.
