The other day I asked what pre-orders I could trade towards for the extra 30% and the associate literally said "They don't really communicate that stuff to us".

That's correct.  There's a page on the internal website that is barely ever updated but should be is the primary communication.  But like I said, they rarely update it in a timely manner so people really don't know.

Pro Day ad is 2 pages front/back only.  It's nothing too amazing, but hope some deals for someone?

Was hoping there would be a trade bonus for the Switch, but my expectations are beyond low for Pro Day.

Blame the American society that makes retailers have to do this. We have a culture so ingrained within us to take advantage of everyone else as much as possible for the scalpers to exist to begin with and the dumbass public that continues to buy from them in order to enable them. If there were no bundles there would just be stories of someone bringing a group of people with them just to buy out all the consoles each right at the beginning of the line, then nobody gets to have any. It may not be ideal but it’s the best thing you can do with people how they are.

Secondly, trust me, you are going to want to have a second controller ready and charged if you play long sessions at a time. The battery life on those are not the longest.

As if scalpers don't exist in any other country. This isn't an American society issue, it's common in any society to have people see an opportunity and try to make money from it.

Is gamestop paying izembo by the post? He’s made hundreds of posts in the few months he’s been on here and as exhibited by this latest post, says nothing that’s of actual use.

Super random question. At some point last year there were certain games getting like $50+ in trade in. I know Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was one, Metroid Prime, etc. My question to those who keep spread sheets, was New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe one of those? 

 

I ask because my son had it and now he doesn't. I know we traded his Mario Kart during that trade bump but can't remember if we traded in that one too or if he just has lost it at some point. Sorry for the randomness and thanks for your help.

Here you guys go: https://www.reddit.c...ekends_pro_day/

Edit: That's a pretty mediocre sale.

Surely there must be more on the other side, no?

Yeah, that's the same post I saw it from.  It's just those 2 images.  that's it. 

 

Also thanks for the laugh,  i think the sale is garbage and weaker than a weekly ad.  But was hoping someone sees something they want.

Considering the amount of advertisement hype they put around this Pro Days sale, I'm quite underwhelmed.  Back 4 Blood vanilla edition made this ad at a price point of $30 despite it being $16.99 right now.

You mean you don't want a Series S with Halo and $25? 

 

I kid, but stores have a lot of inventory of Series S and they are just trying to clear stock of it at this point since barely anyone wants it (compared to the PS5 digital + disc or Series X). 

 

This sale is feels like a Gamestop clearing stock sale, not a "get customers spending" sale.

Looks like the pre-owned Pro Day sale games are the exact amount you'd have payed around 2 years ago with the regular 10% off pro discount.

 

Okay, the sale is literally 10% off all pre-owned.

I'd go with an Series S you can get sometimes for $200 or so on Amazon.

I forgot to add.  Given:  Bunch of Xbox, 360, and Xbox One discs in my backlog.  Just give me an external disc drive already and I would gladly get an Xbox Series S, even at $300.

Why not just get a series X?

What is your budget for series x? You may want to check AWD, although they upped their price for a used series x this week. I have seen used xbox series x go for 400 on FB marketplace.

Is it possible that we could get a total 50% bonus if we trade towards a 30% bonus game?  10% pro, 10% pro day, 30% select game pre-order

Nope. 10% pro is already included in that 30% (mystery games that trigger it), so if everything stacks the best you'll get is 40%

Isn't that just advertising the extra 10% Pros already receive?

Good point. Haven't they done the extra in the past so, it's a possibility?

At this point I’d get a series x over an OG Xbox one and a series s. If you can’t find a series x just go with an OG Xbox one and wait til you find one. The series s is a pretty decent deal at $300 all things considered but there’s really no point in paying near series x pricing and not getting the best performance

Maybe others have already echoed this sentiment... but THIS (i.e. the Pro Day deals) is what GS has been advertising for the past two weeks and hyping up?

 

Not sure why I'm surprised, but really the amount of hype is totally unjustified. This may be one of the worst Pro Days.

A few of us dared to hope for something decent.  This is the sale we deserve
