#13853336 Free Soft/Hardcover book from Amazon for signing up for Audible Trial (YMMV)

Posted by Gara on 15 October 2017 - 07:07 AM

prime only. meh. ah wlel its only popcorn.

You're not missing anything. It's the same cheddar and caramel popcorn you see in those giant metal tins. Only in bag form. My bag went right in the garbage

 

 

Ya only with prime lol still can't figure put what audible item i want here lol...so many to choose from

I went with a John Waters book and that If Chins Could Kill memoir by Bruce Campbell. Both are read by the authors and they are both weird entertaining people. The pacing is too slow on audio books for me so I figured I may as well go with entertaining voices.

 

Edit: Scratch the John Waters book. I saw World War Z has an all star compilation style reading and grabbed the complete edition. Really looking forward to listening to it.

Instead of games I've been buying shoes lately. 

 

I mean. It's related to games in a way.

In what sense? I suppose there are many games in which the characters do wear shoes... What stats do your new shoes increase?

 

Buyers remorse.... to keep with the above posters theme I recently spent several hundred dollars on fancy hoodies and sweatpants. I usually don't wear sweatpants outside the house so I have no idea what I am going to do with so many pair.

 

As for games it's actually been a lucky year buyers remorse wise. I did buy a lot of games where I thought I was getting a killer deal only to realize all the PS3 games are annoying French/English version so they have a different rating stamp and crazy thick manuals with english and french. The copy of Yakuza 3 especially bugs me. Observe!

Anyone know if the $5 store trade in card bonus is still working. Found one and was tempted to use it.

I used one today and it worked. They are no longer handing them back or giving out new ones in my area. Very sad to see them go

 

If you sign up for Elite Pro now is the extra 20% off pre-owned and free 2-day shipping active online yet, or are those benefits only launching once the tier officially launches later this month? Can anyone confirm?

 

Also, does anyone know if a bump happened today? I haven't kept up with values recently, but I was thinking some games that dropped earlier this week are now back up today.

 

 

It is active online. The app is also now working correctly with it. There was a bump on 10-06. I was fairly surprised but it came at a perfect time for me.

Why does GS suck so hard?

There current promotion very clearly states 'Buy 2, get 1 free on ALL preowned products'.

When you click on the banner on their site or mobile, it even shows that retro items are included.

I added a Gamecube, N64 and Dreamcast to my cart and the cheapest item (Dreamcast) is not showing up free. What gives?

I also love when you try clicking on the VIEW DETAILS tab, nothing happens.

The item may have been out of stock. This promotion gets weird on certain items that are low stock. An example would be Destiny 2 for the PS4. I couldn't get an elite discount or B2G1 to work on it even though it stated in stock. The website finally updated and and showed out of stock.

Posted by Gara on 25 September 2017 - 06:26 AM

Thank you for the heads up. I'll pass on this one. Game is alright but not in a hurry to play. I'm with the other poster in waiting for a GOTY edition.




#13832223 Gamestop Weekly Ad 9/13 - 9/19

Posted by Gara on 15 September 2017 - 12:31 PM

Used my B2g1...
Traded in my black dualshock (which came to $35 somehow? Estimate was 29 online?)


You probably got credited that bonus $5 thing. It's a little coupon card you're generally supposed to present yourself but my local store has one taped next to the register and gives it to everyone. It doesn't show any indication on the receipt other than just raising the trade value on 1 item by $5.00. Not sure about the extra $1. Glad it all worked out for ya

Well I bought 3 Switch games thinking I could trade them in after I beat them but at the end of the day, if values stay low I guess I can't complain getting Mario Rabbids, Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 2 for $108 after tax. 

Haha no you can't complain! Man I wish my stores would have 3 top tier titles in stock like that. If you have a local Bestbuy all those titles should get a pretty hefty trade in.

I read the last two pages, didn't see it.  How do I get this if I already have GCU?  Just give them my card to scan, then the phone?

It's the same process for people with GCU and without. Have them enter in your reward zone number (usually done by phone number lookup) then purchase the phone and card.

I wanna get a phone I can actually use as a back up.

One of the phones I used was the T Mobile Samsung T199 if that helps. $19.99

Posted by Gara on 05 December 2013 - 04:59 AM

I wouldn't trust the online stock checker or Bestbuy staff. Fire Emblem shows up out of stock in every bestbuy around and when I called the store they also told me out of stock.

 

I went in an hour later and found a couple copies sitting on the shelf. They didn't have price labels for some reason. Just the game in a bare security box.
