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

Not really, some employees care and will do something about it but its not necassary

 

Thats why they have their very own GameStop Cases!

Sorry if this has been answered, but if I trade in a few games at once and preorder one of the 3 bonus games, do I get the extra trade value on all of the games or just certain ones?

Thanks guys, I've never traded before but now that I'm a Gamestop Pro member due to my XSX bundle purchase and see I can get more money for them.

Some of these games I don't have cases for anymore. Some of I do but there's no game in the case lol.

All games traded will get the bonus when you put $5 down on one of the eligible preorder promo titles

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...


That happened to me in October. Took about 5 days for it to get figured out and delivered.

I turned in four switch games, two XBone games, and two Wii games for $225.

So you are saying I fucked up? ... Famn, I thought I was a genius for trading in 5 boosted switch games, then rebuying them and Metroid from the website for $10 more... With that bonus 20%, I would have had an extra $38.50

Why do they not have Mario Party Superstars pre-owned listed on their site for?

looks like I turned $195 in Walmart clearance and gamestop buy 2 get 1 free games into $335 in gamestop credit, and got some expensive out of print games at a decent price as well. too bad the zelda and mario games are still on sale and didnt get boosted, looking forward to a january bump to unload those. didnt think the lets go switch games and mario golf would get boosted again with how cheap they have been, live and learn i guess.

Did GameStop change their policy on using $5 monthly power up reward online? There used to be an option to use it for online purchases, but now it's in-store only. Am I doing something wrong?

For me there's a button to press to apply to cart online now which is new.

Thank you. The button to apply is in the card itself.

Mine is showing in active offers. Maybe log out and back in or clear cookies if you haven't tried?

I just tried using my monthly $5 on a psn card and it wouldn't work. The employee is a friend and tried just about everything to get it but no luck. Anyone else have this issue?

You can manually enter codes via the promo code section. This just makes it a bit easier to use the monthly coupon.

It works online. Just type the code in the Promo Code Section upon entering your cart or hit the button to apply.

Can't seem to find a store with any copies of games I want to flip not even Paw Patrol.

It is a loss leader so maybe that is why the changed it or maybe a issue at the register according to one commenter. Point of sale activated cards aren't working when paid for by cash, credit and coupon. https://www.reddit.c...thly_5_coupons/

I tried to use my $5 monthly in store for Xbox credit, and I was told they can no longer do it as of today. The employee showed me how it wasn’t working on his end

Anyone else try yet? Not sure if he’s lying or not
