Joy-Cons get an extra $10 each right now for trade in.  $25 with Pro, that is LEGIT

If you bought that dualshock 4 controller from the previous DOTD it is a flip back to gamestop, great if you got a doritos dust covered controller

I'm more about that buy 2 get 1. What are people looking to get? Flipping thngs?

If anthem, jump force, or kingdom hearts 3 are available they will probably be $25 base so with elite and the guaranteed $30 you will get $35 per copy making a whopping $5 profit per game if you dont pay taxes on trade credit and have some to spare

Prove it.

I am not sure what it is either way but even the PS4 Pro and X1S 2TB are currently less than this offer, we really need someone to try it out before anything is set in stone.

Anybody know how holds work at Gamestop? Are they removed from inventory when held/is their queue for holds?


I went to Gamestop on Tuesday trying to pick up a used copy of Mario Kart 8 and was told that there was a (online) hold for it. Employee told me that there is a 48 hour hold(but the hold email says 24 hours). I checked the inventory online on Wednesday and Thursday and it showed they had it so I requested a hold. I requested twice immediately after Gamestop closed each day and they were rejected within minutes. :???:

Website will not always show correct inventories, holds last 48 hours and are made by who ever places them first but the system does not timestamp holds while the store is closed.

My ESO Morrowind went through (took forever).

Posted by shady520 on 10 June 2017 - 01:34 PM

I have the game from the CE so I don't have the case and artwork that they would be looking for.  Has the success rate for sending a disc in a art-less case been high enough to attempt this?

The disc does say morrowind on it but the icon shows the standard version and booted into it before I redeemed the code (thought it was just the preorder bonus). I am going to pick up a copy of ESO today at gamestop to test if it will play the same with either disc to make sure but if it works I imagine you could just slap it in an empty X1 case and send it in.




edit: Here is a pic of the disc on the left and the code sheet on the right

So for anyone that picked up Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind on X1 it is just the standard ESO game with an included upgrade code for the Morrowind expansion that is tied to the specific account. I was hopping it would be the full package on one disc I could trade or resell later but gamestop probably will not take it in as anything but ESO and who knows with best buy. Amazon on the other hand will take it so I plan to trade it in and pick up a regular copy of ESO.

 I said yea that's why my friend is trading it for me under his ID. She said the system wouldn't let it because of the trade ban. 

Why? Why would you tell her that? That is the kind of stuff that gets a JD looking into your account and banning you. You also jeopardized your friends account. If it is a relative you can get away with people trading in under your account and could just excuse it as something like, "oh well I guess I can't get you the extra 10% (family member's name here)" then suggest maybe they can get an account.

I see, so in the beginning the moderators and admin of this site had an issue with this kind of a list? Good thing that doesn't seem to be the issue anymore. Also if you were the original starter of the sheet thank you for setting the stage for what is truly great today :)

Others used to do sheets as well but I will take credit on adding the percent values to make it easier. The reason mods were removing it at the time was because CAG had business relationships with certain companies like Best Buy (used to have a dedicated user from corporate) or Gamestop (the reason why we have CAG16).


10 likes on that post vs. your one disgruntled reply clearly tells me that you're in the minority. Sorry bro



Funny how someone can be on here for 10+ years and have less than 200 likes

Yet they never used to count the likes years ago, but I guess the facebook generation can only measure their success in life on an insignificant button of groupthink. I mean of course Bieber or mcdonalds got to be the best thing since sliced bread since they are number one sellers nowadays.

I'm pretty sure I speak for everyone in this thread when I say the following:

Fuck off

You don't, before you were even on here this site was plenty more active then it is now because people used to share a lot more deals. JP had to compile everything manually into the values, people were a lot more friendly and did not shy away from posting because some asshat decided their info is only clogging up the boards. Now I admit with BB sheets and TIV's now being searchable the need for info from others is lessened but what attracts others to use the website to post deals is predicated on them having access to the deals available from others (ie it will drive people away). I was against super secret flipping club when it was a thing and I do not like the idea of arbitrarily cutting off access of info to others when it really will not stop the problems as people will still pull the same old nonsense.

The problem with the Amazon cash deal is going to be no different than the gift cards, if you are paying cash no problem but if it is credit then you get a JD going captain save a hoe mode.

This is 2017, we're living in now. Isn't there some sort of hack/app to change your IP address or something?

Home wifi

Cellular Data

Public wifi

Neighbors wifi



Tried clearing data, cache, uninstalling. Still keeps my same character and level. Is there something else I should be doing that makes it reset? Galaxy S8 with whatever android OS it is up to



Yeah gamestop must have fiddled with the iOS version of the app, now it autologs you into gamecenter.  Blah


So even after i clear the info, sign out, delete the app, and sign out of game center and upon redownloading the app the game still recognizes my phone and the original character i made pops up.


If anyone has a workout for iphone please post it.

Keeping the same character is not a problem on android but I do not have the google gamer id set up on my phone, so I just start it, hit the "K", sign in to previous accounts from the last time they had this, return to the game, hit the "k" again to bring up the $5 redemption offer, then use the wipe and repeat.
