I think the old coupons expired on 1/31, so this would be a new batch of coupons which may now be programed not to work on Amazon.



Mine were all certs I created from points a few days prior to 1/31. They're good until 3/31/20. I think it's the system, not the certs.

I think Squidfinity is correct.


The coupons I used on 1/31 that worked for Amazon had a 3/31/20 expiration date, so I think it was an updated to POS not the actual certs.

No it doesn't. Unless things have changed, I've had pre-orders that were open for several months that I eventually either cancelled or moved the money/credit over to something else.

Agreed.  I've never heard of a 30 day time limit on pre-orders; although I guess it could vary by location. 


I just moved a Destiny 2 preorder from 2017 over to a DBZ Kakarot pre-order last week to get do one last trade with my elite pro and didn't have any trouble doing so.

I've looked a few pages back and haven't been able to find info elsewhere, it sounds like Gamestop is doing a $5 bonus promo again? Same $2 minimum trade in value to qualify?

And what are the details of 4/$60?

$5 bonus on switch,xbox one, ps4 with $2+ value (probably ends tomorrow 12/14).  Then only switch games get the bump next week.


4/$60 starts on the 15th and is for games priced $24.99 or less.

What is going on here with the two Sonic Mania Plus Switch games that I got? One has plus in the title on the box art but the other doesn't. It's also on the cartridge. I can't swap it out in store because it's out of stock. I was thinking about putting the vanilla cartridge in the sonic mania plus case and just the leave the sonic mania plus cartridge in an empty case. There is no listing for a vanilla copy and the UPC code is different.


They are actually two different games.  The Plus version includes the Encore mode and extra character DLC on the cartridge.  The non-plus version requires a $5 DLC download for that content.


Gamestop screwed this up by not having a pre-owned SKU for the non-plus version.


Amazon might still except it if you do as you say, but you will be screwing over the next gamer to purchase it.

:switch:  Ark Evolved (NSW) is another possible credit mover.

I notice Pokken Tournament (Wii U) dropped to $14.99 on the 7th, so it now qualifies for the 3 for $25 in case anyone is interested.


Has anyone else notice any other similar price drops?

Went ahead and alphabetized the Xbone list. If anyone wants to create a PS3, Wii u, etc list it would greatly help.

Here is a list for Wii U of the $9.99 and $14.99 games:


Wii U $14.99 each



Wii U $9.99 each

Sorry, missed the discussion about the new website and everyone is now talking about the glitches. Are the TiV on the app or website accurate? The website is showing much lower values for me.

The App was 100% accurate for my 24 games I traded today.  I think the website is having issues for some people.

Tried trading in Splinter Cell: double agent today at my local store. Didn't automatically get the $5 bump, so I held onto it. Retro games may not work anymore. The X360 and PS3 games worked fine though. Going to try another store tomorrow and see if they'll manually add on the $5 for me. Good luck out there!

Odd.  I traded in 8 retro games (PS1, PS2, GC, NES) about two hours ago and they all got the bump automatically.

Just a friendly reminder to watch what games they enter into the system when trading them in.


I traded 4 Wii Sports during the last SB, and traded in a Wii Sports Resort today that they mistakenly put in as Wii Sports.  Luckily I caught it and made them fix it or else it could have resulted in a ban for me.

Wow some games actually increased when the "bump" went away. Two I noticed are Fight Night Champion for 360 (10->12) and Minecraft 360 (7->8). I am sure a few other games did the same thing. Very weak. Skyrim Switch was another.

Don't Starve is another one.  It was $10 all week until the stealth tank dropped it to $7.  Now it's back at $10.
