Damn forgot to use CAG16!!!! Urrrrgghhh

Oh well, I guess I can take it back to the store if it's no good... right? Also, how long does it usually take to get your rewards after redeeming points? I tried to get a $15 certificate with my points for another game, it took my verification code, and boom, nothing in my active offers.

Check your digital locker if it's an online cert. Let us know the amount and if it works because we've been having issues with them applying.

You guys really think IATCG has that much power? Gamestop has their own code with CAG, if anything, they regular stalk this forum, SD and other avenues to find out this info. More than likely, they know of these issues before it even hits these sites and either don't want it fixed (as it still bolsters sales) or are working on a fix.

IATCG is a nobody and his "threats" are meaningless.

Your right. Somebody here actually mentioned that the slickdeals16 code was only a temporary code and that it would expire on 5/31 which of course it did.

We need a new game store, GameStop is the worst company I have seen in my lifetime.

Yet you will keep shopping there for years to come.

Does the CAG16 code no longer work? Is there another code? I'm out of the loop on recent changes.

No and no.

How long does it normally take for points from in-store purchases to show up on your account?  I don't generally pay much attention to it but I just happened to notice that points from my purchases on the 28th and 29th of Feb havent been added yet.  It's like 6000 points so it was noticeable. 

I haven't received any points for purchases on 2/27 and 2/29. Maybe there's an issue?

Looked into this: $35 x 1.3 = $45.50 x 3 = $136.50 credit if you trade towards an accessory.

With no longer getting 10% off, one would pay $110 + tax, probably around $119, so you'd get about $17.5 towards that accessory. Seems to be too much work to get about 30% or less off a new accessory when you could buy used from elsewhere for cheaper.

B2G1 is good to get stuff you want to play, but otherwise with no CSAC available, not really worth it for flipping IMO.

If cag16 works during the sale it would be around $100 depending on how much tax you pay.

Has anyone tried using the cert with a digital Xbox credit amount, printed on the receipt? I tried with January's and it didn't work, but I was thinking maybe GS fixed the issue with the February cert.

Yes, I've used one on an Xbox physical card and one on the Xbox currency that prints the code on the receipt and both worked fine this week.

Wow thats crazy. I assume at the quicker ones they had good training, and at the slower ones.... not so much.

Actually that's what I thought at 1st. It turned out that it wasn't the store that took long, it was actually they're system that took forever to process the order.

Anyone know how long store pickup usually takes? Ordered early in the morning, and I get that stores only opened a little over 30 minutes ago, but my order still says preparing for pickup. Both items I ordered show OOS now on the app, so not sure if I got them or not.

Only asking because this is only the second store I've done pickup for. Both other times were at the same store and I almost immediately received a ready/cancellation email. Just debating whether or not to start making the drive over there now.

I've had it take as little as 30 min and as much as 7-8 hrs.

Traded in some games today from the b2g2 and the employee was very surprised that I had an elite pro membership. She even brought up the fact that it doesn't expire until December. I told her it was to bad that they were going to be transitioning it into their new pro program. She said I wasn't going to lose it until it expired in December. Man I wish that were true.

Even the non-CSAC stores?

Percentage bonuses NEVER apply to consoles.

They've been doing that deal on and off for years. So, no, it's not too good to be true. But good luck finding four decent games that you don't already own for those prices. Not bad for last-gen pick ups though.

It was to good to he true. The original post said 4/$10 on $9.99 games and 4/$20 on $14.99 games which is why he said it.

Could I trade $33 base Switch games in + $5 bonus trade credit + 20% bonus toward Dragon Ball Z? I assume no since both offers say "Cannot be combined with any other offer."


Would it be in poor taste to take the 20% offer ($39.60 total) and then cancel the pre order? I believe I remember others saying you only need to apply $5 to the pre-order (allowing to get the 20% bump on multiple trade ins).


End goal is to use trade credit toward Animal Crossing (3/20).


Promos don't stack.
