#14110535 B2G1 Free all pre-owned games @Gamestop

Posted by abbabaab on 27 December 2018 - 01:38 AM

Are you able to use reward certs or pre owned reward certs in store, or does it screw the B2G1 up because it says "off one item" which would essentially be the free item, right?


If you get three games at the same price and try to use certs, the game they get applied to turns into the free game, so you end up paying the same amount anyway and, yes, the certs are basically wasted. But if you get games at different prices, the certs are applied to the most expensive game and you can save depending on how much more expensive it is (for example, with 1 $55 and 2 $35 games, using a $20 cert would knock the $55 game down to $35 so you pay $70 for all three, but using a $25 cert would drop it to $30 and therefore make it the free game while leaving the others alone, meaning you'd still pay $70).

Their system seems to be a little wonky during this busy season. I got an email about a game arrival being delayed only for it to show up that day. Another game I ordered closer to Black Friday was listed as preparing to ship for at least a week after it had arrived.

Yeah, turns out that was the culprit. My order just got updated with tracking info and it turns out it was available at the local post office for pickup yesterday.

This should also be when those of us who bought into the $150 gift card deal last month are getting our $15 savings codes.

How do I utilize this? Listings are always free but final value fees are the killer.

It wouldn't reduce FVFs, anyway. Those promotions are always for free listing fees.

So after a flawless BF from GS, I'm growing concerned a pre-order that "shipped" last week hasn't been received by the post office yet, or at least according to the tracking is the case. Is this normal? They have less than two weeks to get it here for Christmas which shouldn't be an issue but I like to keep on top of things since nobody can be trusted to do their job these days.

I had a BF order like that, turned out that it was shipped UPS Surepost and the tracking number was tied to USPS, so it didn't update until the package was handed over to them despite it having been shipped and on the way to me. Try searching the tracking number with UPS or Fedex and see if you get anything.

Stacks with the clearance prices, too. Picked up Ever Oasis for $10.40 + tax, among others.


I think I discovered another glitch, I added a digital game on accident and a physical game, it discounted the physical game to $16 and I removed the digital from my cart and was still able to check out at $16.

Check three posts above you.

Do you guys think Bayonetta will ever hit this price with GCU? Not sure if I should buy now or wait. I only need it for Bayonetta 2 since 1 will be cheap on PC.

Several first-party Switch games have been on sale periodically throughout the year. Bayonetta is not one of them. Take that however you like.


It very well might go lower with GCU eventually, but at this point it probably won't be until it goes on clearance or something.

Yeah, they never put EVERYTHING up for early access. Gotta save some stuff for the actual day to make the flood of customers break your site get people into the store, after all. Still, this feels like more than they usually include, or maybe I'm imagining it.


I'm glad that Starlink was in the early access, at least. I was worried that was going to be another Disgaea 5 situation, and I want that arwing. <3

Darn, will try again tomorrow then :) Thank you

Try Tuesday. That's when regular My Best Buy early access starts.

The ultimate CAGs will use bootleg amiibos. I love the fact that we have that option.


I mean, c'mon, Epona and limited shit being locked behind action figures? You ain't paying $60 for your game... better pay around $80 = Nintendo is f'ing smart. If Sony or MS did that shit, you know people would give them crap.

If you're here you shouldn't be paying the full $60 for the game in the first place.

The sad thing is that there are people who simply want to play these games but they can't because you guys are buying them to flip from store to the next, moving credit from one store, holding on to them for the chance they might increase in value instead of contributing to society and getting a job, etc. At least the unethical activity in this thread has died down lately, no doubt helped by the information I have screencaptured, archived, and saved in a file that is a few GBs and growing to GS corporate.


Use the promos and shop as intended and you won't have to worry about this stuff. But no, everyone would rather take advantage and then paly the victim when things don't go their way.


And if anyone knows the whereabouts of Dealseeker or Blackbeard, please contact me immediately or have them contact me. Me and Blackbeard will be making a truce soon and fighting against the corruption of these so-called "deals" sites and will be starting our own. He doesn't know it yet, but I will make him a cash offer he can't refuse. The same for Dealseeker, another legend who was banned.

Looks like more amiibos are coming out

Meanwhile, the wait for Ridley to go up for preorder continues.

The bigger question is how in the world could you find the time to play that many games in the first place.


You're supposed to be buying games here, not playing them.

Inkling Girl

Inkling Boy

Ice Climbers


Young Link



Pokemon Trainer




My wallet...

I doubt they would do individual amiibo for Squirtle and Ivysaur on top of one for Pokemon Trainer, though I wonder how it'll work with Charizard. I'd also like to see MM Link reclassified by the new game as a Young Link amiibo, but that's just me.


Right now, I just need those Ripley preorders to go up at BBY.
