The "I make a lot of money but get a rush when Gamestop gives me an extra 5% trade credit" takes are pretty gross guys.

What can I say life in your 40s is boring 😂
Seriously though anyone bragging about making money it’s always two things. Either they are lying or they haven’t made it very long. People that have made money for years don’t tell anyone. People that made their first six figure salary tell everyone including the person in line at the grocery store. It’s the old saying act like you’ve been there before.

I make a good living and I’m still here. Just because you make good money doesn’t mean you don’t like saving. The two things aren’t mutually exclusive.

I know a lot of CAGs that make a very good living btw.

Exactly I have been in my industry(advertising) for 20 years. I make an excellent living but the whole misnomer of if you make a great living you have no free time is bull. As you progress in your Career you will realize it gets easier not harder. There are some weeks I work 80 hours a week and there are some weeks I work 20. I also have four weeks of vacation and 10 holidays a year. You add that up I only work about 46 weeks a year. And if you had been working for any length of time you would have realized that it’s very easy to get burn out. Doing flips is a nice little escape that I still feel like I’m making money. Yes it’s not as much money as I would make it my job but if I worked 70-80 hours a week at my job every week all the time I would probably quit. Plus it’s nice not feeling like I’m taking from the kids college fund, my retirement fund, vacation funds to buy a game that I’ll probably only play 10 hours.

Well, I use Trust Pilot and 58,000+ reviews with a 4.6 average seems pretty solid. But I’m done arguing. You do you.

Also, they use Facebook Messenger for support so not sure what the broken link is. I know people that buy physical games from them as well.

is the deal still working?
