#14094405 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 28 November 2018 - 11:54 PM

Didn't trade-in my PS4 while it was $140 + the $25 bonus because I wasn't sure if my Spider-man bundle would get shipped or cancelled (you never know) and now the value for a 500GB console has dropped to $120.  How frequently do values for consoles go back up after they've gone down like this?  

I could just sell it on eBay or reddit or something but I like just taking something to Gamestop and not having to worry about listing, shipping, having to deal with any potential issues when they receive it etc. 

#13946482 Redbox Games On Sale

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 15 February 2018 - 04:15 AM

Got one of those legendary paper copies I always hear about, no RE7 for me.  Oh well, it would kind of bug me not having the box anyway, already chatted up a redbox rep and I worked out a refund.  


You always hear about it having to everyone else you never truly expect it to be you lol 

#13946113 Best Buy Presidents Day Sale Feb 16-19 (Feb 15 MBBY Early Access)

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 14 February 2018 - 07:01 PM

Is that just base HZD, no Complete Edition?  :/  I remember it being on sale for like $20 in December-ish, can't believe it's even more now even "on sale".  

#13936922 PSN Code Trading Thread - READ THE OP! ONE POST EVERY THREE DAYS!

Are you being serious?

Was there some glitch or something?

I'm not entirely sure how this works since I've never worked there, but it's some kind of Gamestop retail employee perk in association with Sony.

#13776035 Japanese Video Game Figure Thread

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 11 July 2017 - 03:48 PM

Hi, new to this Area of CAG, but is there a trading/sell list of any sort for figures?  looking to get new homes for some of mine. Don't have the space. 

There's a thread in the "master trade" subsection of the trading part of the forum, but it's very scarcely used so I'd probably recommend MFC instead :(  But if you wanted to post them there I'd be glad to check them out (as I'm sure would the others of this thread).  

#13761082 PS Plus 1 Yr Card, $48, Ebay via Neogames

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 30 June 2017 - 11:37 AM

I essentially ignore the price increase. In my head, the price is still $50, so I only see $40 or under as a deal. I laugh at any price $45 or higher.

Uh?... that's... cool?.... anyways yeah this is great when you combine it with eBay's consistent $15 off $75 deals, a shame you can only buy 1 at a time but if you stack these with certain things you get a solid deal, just got this and Prey for the PS4 for like $70.  For those curious the seller messages you and asks if you're okay with having it sent digitally, and after 48 hours of you not replying (only reply if you want it physical) you'll get it.

#13745274 Official Collector's Edition Compilation VII 2017 Update!

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 17 June 2017 - 01:55 AM

I think Nier is a special case too. Most of the people who got it, I would say 95%, got it because they actually wanted it and loved the game/series. Video games are a hobby, and some items are priceless. I wouldn't sell it back for a $1000.

Honestly there's nothing in my collection I wouldn't sell at the right price lol

For example MGS is my favorite all time franchise, but if the TPP CE suddenly shot up to like $500 in the aftermarket for whatever reason, that shit would be on eBay soooo fast and I'd just get some other MGS merch and pocket the profits.

Very satisfied with this Fire Emblem CE.  $52 after Prime is a hell of a deal, $12 over the msrp (with tax included) for a couple of neat extras is awesome.

will they check the money to make sure its real? seems like all the counterfeiters love craigslist.

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to ask but I don't believe they generally do so, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to invest in these.

#13704582 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVII

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 30 April 2017 - 08:10 PM

I've sold over 250+ items on eBay but my friends and I recently had disputes from paypal/ebay and it seems they side with the buyer 90% of the time. The fraud seems so prevalent these days. Not sure if I should sell my classic on eBay or go craigslist with the chance of being scammed/mugged. I don't know what to do, but no point sitting on it much longer with current prices.

Check to see if any of these are close to you


it's police stations that are designated safe transaction areas where they'll let you do craigslist/offerup deals there.  Doesn't get much safer than that.

Woo, this was exciting lol.  You should totally put a regular sales thread after this :)  Plenty of good stuff left over I'm sure people will be interested in straight up buying.

#13684815 "YMMV" EBay Offering $15 for the mishap back in March

Posted by The Holy Pretzle on 07 April 2017 - 11:19 PM

Saw this in my messages earlier today, really glad they decided to make up for it, they could have just as well overlooked it and faced no backlash.  Got that ROTJ Luke figuarts for $65 with free shipping :D
