#14407731 The Gamestop Thread

SMT Nocturne at $30 is the price I've been waiting for. I wanted to take advantage of the deal GameStop has going though where if you buy a new game for 29.99 or higher you get 30% off a pre-owned game. Any ideas why that wouldn't be working with SMT?

Unfortunately Daily Deal is excluded from stacking with any promotion afaik. Yeah it sucks, wanted to do the same.

Missed it. Darn my love of Nier

It's been coming back in stock around that time pretty regularly, just keep checking. It's also dropped quite a bit online - like it's $80 for New copy on Amazon, so think the flipping is pretty much dead on that one lol.

Best Buy isn't mentioned at the moment, but that's changed before, even after the preorder period has closed for some games.

Yeah like with Bloodstained COTM 2 they added BestBuy to the listing I think about a week after going live. I'll be surprised if it isn't sold there.

I used to use the list feature on gamestop but it seems like you aren't able to add games to it anymore and it was removed from the website and yeah its a bummer the promo code is dead for now 

You can still access your wishlist but yeah can't seem to add games anymore, hope that gets fixed.

Skyward Sword has eight dungeons, and their some of the best the series has ever had. Wind Waker & Majora's Mask had half that. The overworld areas in SS are even their own little dungeons, in a way, that are filled with more puzzles and secrets than the typical large Zelda open world. This is a meaty game that's worth the price.

I look forward to Skyward Sword finally getting the respect it deserves now that the admittedly annoying motion controls are optional. Definitely my favorite Zelda game.

For me it's my least favorite Zelda. I agree with you on some of the dungeons but the game overall just ended up being pretty tedious, to the point where I dropped it and finished it much later.

Whomever at Gamestop IT deactivates codes/promos before big sales like the B2G1 always drags their feet in reactivating them. I expect/hope CAG16 will be back up within another week, but who knows.

I think the last time it was deactivated took around 2 1/2 weeks to get back up, so yeah another week sounds about right.

Did you pay the $5.99 fee to have it redirected by UPS?

Oh I have UPS premium so any redirects are free. But if it's $6 without then yeah personally I'd still pay that.

I have quite a few big gc titles Mario kart, pmttyd, Pokemon coliseum, tales of Symphonia, fire emblem, and so on. but could never see myself parting with them. Unless they hit 200 each then it's bye felicia. As for that kinda dosh I don't think I could afford not to.

If you have a CIB Path of Radiance, it is actually going for $250+. Quite a few above that in the past week or so.

Wow got a crazy deal on the 5 for $25 games. Somehow I added Animal Crossing New Leaf to my cart for 3.95 as well, I was like boom let me get that. 

You sure you aren't confusing it for another game? It's $19 and doesn't qualify...

So is cag16 dead for good? I think the longest it was nuked for was 2 weeks and we're already past that this time. Anyone know if Cheapy has reached out to them about it?

UPDATE....So it looks like if you trade the same game twice  in a week that will get you trade banned. I don’t believe that but that’s what the lady told me over the phone. 

That's not true at all. I traded in two of the same game earlier this week, though at different stores. Most likely you were flagged.

The number of people who do it as a percentage of their customer base is too small to make that worthwhile.  For every 1 person who does this there are at least 20 trading in their copy of Madden for $12 3 months after dropping $60 on it.  People who flip are outliers.  Further, now that they stopped allowing us to use TiC on gift cards, they still probably make a slight amount of money on us in the long run.

 

Anyone know how long we have to pick up an online order?  My email confirmation didn't say. 

You have a week. It's at the top of the ready to pick up email in smaller print. Easy to miss.
