Why not just get a series X?

At this point, I thought it was frowned upon getting a Series X and not having a 4K setup. 

 

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.

I heard $400 is the going price at AWD.  I might try my luck there.

 

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

Yeah, kinda of the reason I was leaning towards an Xbox One X.

For me the best thing about this was the "up to 30% off trading cards." Too bad it's the weekend before the new Pokemon GO TCG set drops. I got an Astral Radiance ETB and one of the deck boxes that could be Hoopa or Dragonite themed. Threw in One Piece World Seeker to play for the month the manga is on hiatus before the final saga.

How do you leave a survey reply without a purchase again?

Is it normal for there to be three employees but only one register going with a line to the door?

Yeah, because I think they have a level of employee that isn’t allowed to use the register.

Just FYI there is indeed an additional 10% bonus for trades Friday-Saturday.  20% just with pro membership.  However, The Quarry and Fire Emblem Warriors will give you 30% total.  Smash and Lego Star Wars were both $39 after the 30% bonus, so yay for nearly $40 trades

On the second page, choose that you don't have a receipt (obviously). Then you choose which store.

Is this reflected on the website? If not, look up the trade value online and then add 20%? In store only values?

I got $39 for both of those a couple weeks ago for preordering The Ascent, so I don’t think this is a special thing tied to Pro Day…

Bonus 10% is not reflected on web site.  Lego Star Wars trade value was $36 without any pre-orders and then changed to $39 with a qualifying title.

The series X is a step up from the one x regardless if you have a 4k tv or not. The faster load times, ssd and instant launch of games is worth it alone. I traded my ps4 pro to GS today for $270. It’s time to move on to next gen my friend. These new consoles are BC also, so that should make it an easier transition. You will have a hard time grabbing a series x from AWD. They go too fast.
Pro tip: clearance T-shirts are supposed to be $3 in store for pro day according to GS associate. Register rang up at clearance price, but associate manually adjusted the total to $3/shirt.

The 10% hasn’t been reflected on some titles for awhile, but it’s applied in-store for Pros any day, not just Pro Day. The max percentage is still 30%, which is standard when putting towards qualifying preorders.

It's definitely worth the upgrade. I was blown away by the stark difference in visuals in NBA 2K22 (yes, I play a lot of 2K and never spend a dime on microtransactions), as well as the complete lack of load times.

I only upgraded because someone paid me $450 for my Gears 5 One X during the holidays, and Im glad I did.

Don’t bother trying to explain it. Most people here get it.

The only real benefit is 10% more for controllers and accessories.

Fire Emblem 3h did not have a g2l code.

It’s been $30 new several times so $25 used sounds average.

$20.19 after my monthly cert seemed like a good deal to me

Just remember to not update your game if you want to be able to do explots such as cloning items or grabbing Darkrai and Shaymin. You can also clone pokemon, but once you connect to Pokemon Home you won't be able to transfer clones.

Tbf, its still a garbage site. For example, GTA Trilogy for Switch is $45 but on the landing search page it says $29.99, just like on the other consoles. When you click on it and add it cart its the higher price.

I swear the most Rural GS stores have the most interesting stuff.  Picked up a Sealed Ghost of Tsushima Collector Edition That Was On Clearance For $89.99.

I pretty much never go to Gamestop. If I go and trade in my OG PS4 today, and try to buy one of the "30% towards these new releases" does my trade gain 30% value? Or does that have nothing to do with it and it's trading in those games for credit?

The 30% promotions do not apply to consoles. If you trade in your PS4 today you'll get an extra $50 in trade credit because of Pro Day(s)

The Quarry, Mario Strikers, and The Ascent are the current qualifying titles.  Unfortunately not all are preorders, some are purchase.

Weird question. I have a transaction that went through that, at the time of purchase, I KNOW I used store credit and the difference on credit card X. However, after delivery I realized that the the transaction actually FULLY charged (no store credit used) on to another card I have on file, let's call credit card Y. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

The reason I know for a fact that I initially used store credit and credit card X was the final order page specifically broke down how much was credit and last 4 of credit card X, which I selected.

I'm legitimately at a loss here, as I have no clue how this happened.
