It shouldn't be YMMV. It's either uniformed employees that can't do an easy job correctly or managers being douches and making up their own rules. All stores are supposed to accept those if they come up. Of course, there's basically no GS customer service right now so good luck complaining about it.



Not to mention, why the hell does GS still have a store inventory checker if it hasn't been working for over a month now? What's the point? And why do random pages of games randomly disappear?



But you know what pisses me off the most? That "load more" button. It made going through the bumped values list a chore. GS used to have a good website then they changed it to a site that's broken half the time and annoying to use the other half.

 

You complain a lot, so maybe this will at least shut you up regarding the last point.

Doesn't seem like you factored the bump in in your edit. Not sure of the values beforehand but I cant imagine so many 3DS games always going for $11 like they are now. I'm assuming they drop to $8 base at least, and then you are essentially breaking even between this 30% and the +5 promos.


(X)(1.1)+$5 = (X)(1.3)
X = $25

So anything that has a base TIV less than $25, you have to HOPE a stealth bump coincides with a $5 trade bonus. Assuming this hypothetical stealth bump TIV's are the same as they currently are. It's a gamble waiting as a) the TIV's would have to be the same as they currently are and b) you're waiting on a $5 bonus that may not coincide with this hypothetical stealth bump. I would say there's no point trading anything less than say $5 (semi arbitrary number) as 30% is barely anything on that.

Will they even take the PAL (?) version of a switch game? Mario Odyssey, not that that probably matters.

If they don't, or make a big deal about it, it will be ironic since they sold it to me.

Im afraid if i go tomorrow morning, the bump will be dead


Possibly. No reason to wait. Even if GS had a $5 bonus, it's not worth it on games that have a TIV more than ~$17 (if trading towards Mario/Tsushima).

Edit:
Math is wrong. The $5 bonus stacks with 10% pro bonus, so anything with a base value less than $25 it's better to wait for the $5 bonus... but it's not a huge loss if you go with the Mario/Tsushima trade promo (unless the game TIV has a low TIV). Really depends on the value of the games you're trading in.
