I was in store and they advertised the LGs with a 75 dollar gc through 1/31/22. Didn’t have them try to ring it up though. It was stickered 414.99 for the 50 in and 374.99 for the 43 in.

I don’t understand why anyone in this forum isn’t a pro member. Why even come into this thread if you can’t figure out how to save $15 to cover the cost over the course of a year?

Where are you finding this? I'm not seeing it on their website at all.

Please read the 1265 replies since the beginning of the year before asking your question. If you are unable to find the answer, please see the previous thread with 52,670 posts.

Is Advance Wars or Pokemon Legends part of G2L?

Pokemon and Elden Ring are the carryovers from the preorder list/grid.

Hardly looks like examples. That's a link to trade values. Was hoping others would share their best trade in examples using the bonus.

do your own work. Your library is different from anyone elses.

My OnTrac package became "missing" at one of the OnTrac facility. Every day it would say out for delivery. I requested an investigation and they closed it telling me to contact Best Buy for help. Total items lost were 7 games from 2020 Black Friday sale.

Way to dig your user account out of the woodwork. Member since 2003!

Based on preconceptions I couldn’t tell who’s Katherine or Ammon.

so half of the posts on one page asking the same unanswered question isn't overkill?

Or you ignore Confucius posts as I do. And also the poster you replied to. Seems like these people don’t contribute to anything here except asking for more and more.

Do they still have that 'surveys-for-points' thing hidden away somewhere on the website? I'm 10 points away from a $25 cert (that's right - 24,990/25,000) that I was hoping to use today.

Sadly I don’t think there’s anything you can do for immediate points.

Yesterday the employees got a good laugh when they saw my point balance. 6FC6280A-50E8-4848-8599-F0705FFE3F27.jpeg

Place your bets for how many times a version of

 

"Is the buy 2 g 1 free still going?"

 

or

 

"Is the 50 percent bonus still going?"

 

will be unironically asked today.

 

We have some great action coming in right now. An anonymous gamesman referring to himself as "Dave, but not the stock guy or the one with that condition" has the boards fired up right now with a BIG short, so get your money in while it's hot!

Is there a bonus on console trades? How much for an OG Phat Super PS2 Series 64mb? Will they take Wiimotes? I lost the cover and it doesn’t charge. Will they charge a refurb fee?

Better than f*cking Cohen? I'm a Mets fan, so yes. Those people do a better job, and in fact work far harder, than that asshole.

Different Cohen owns the Mets…

If you're going to be a power trader then you need to be smart about it. I was banned once on an account in all of the years I've been trading and that was because I was being too reckless. I've been flipping games since 1996 with Funcoland, Electronics Boutique, etc. I've flipped thousands of games across hundreds of different stores and like I said, I was only banned once on an account that used my uncle's information. The best thing you can do is have multiple accounts over different phone numbers, keep spreadsheets, and mix your stores around so the employees don't get used to you. Also know the auto limits. You can get banned either by employees or automatically flagged by the system. I treat flipping as a full time job so this is serious for me. If you live a few hours from another state you also need to know the local areas laws on IDs and trade ins.

This is too rational an approach. People on this thread can’t even be bothered to call a store to check the trade value for something that doesn’t show up on the site. But they will also call you out because it’s “not worth their time” for $5 profit on a game you flip. 

 

Keep doing you. 

 

:-  As I was typing this, someone just asked again about trade values. JFC.

I know that most of these have been out a while, but even with the 50%, that's it? Almost not even worth trading in. You probably made at most $5-10 a game. Hope it was worth the gas

Why comment when you have no idea what you’re talking about? Oh right, it’s the internet. It’s the easiest way to expose how ignorant you are. 

He paid $4-5 for these games.  But you don’t care.

No, you would get $19.20: $12 base + $6 (50% extra) + $1.20 (10% Pro bonus).

We need somewhere for these idiotic questions that get repeated ad nauseam. Set up that employee who's on here making multiple posts a day to give the answers.

1 of my stores close to me was trading in for less values then the app was showing last night as well.

Same. All my games were part of mwt this past week. Web/app values are still boosted.
