How do you know what went up and what went down?

I scan everything available on the trade page daily, checking for changes, outputting and archiving the data.

 

here's a pdf of changes: https://docdro.id/ZndubWt

Sooooo the DotD is B3G2 PS4 games but it looks like the tiered giftcard automatically being added to cart is cancelling it out and can't be removed. Did anyone figure out a work around for this before?


Promo doesn't appear to be active looking at promo data. Hopefully they set the rank appropriately so the GC tiered promo doesn't interfere with 19.99+ games.

MWT trade values look to be done, all values that were boosted dropped. Only lasted 2 days I guess.

Yeah, the two games and value it lists on my Most Wanted Trade e-mail are the exact same value they've been for a few weeks, and it also links me to the "mwt41121" string.  Maybe bumps start on Sundays now to correspond with weekly ads. 

The emails shows "Here are your top 12 trade values guaranteed through 4/11/2021*", so the string might be indicative of the end date instead. So far no updates for trade values on the site, so not sure what's up. Would be a pain if you can only get them at the store. I'm guessing it's probably just delayed updating again.

A Most-Wanted Trade Email just arrived. Values aren't yet updated on the app or website and don't match with the values in the email. It could be updated in-store (like the nukes two Sundays ago). 

Not seeing trade value changes yet either. Strangely, it shows PS4 Pro value at 247.50 in my email, which I think should be 225 in reality unless they started giving 10% trade pro boost on hardware.

They've been trying to sneak them onto receipts here, but no mention of a 10% trade bonus. I assume that if my district were offering it, they would use that as the tactic to sell the bags instead


I thought they were just saying some BS to get me to buy a bag, but it turned out to be true. Nice to get 20% boost overall and don't have to deal with trading towards anything.

What's bag bonus?

Buy a GameStop bag for $1, bring in your game trades in the bag to store. Then when they do the tradein, they will manually bump of the trade amount by 10%.

 

My local stores here in MN have been doing it for the last several weeks. They had mentioned that it was due to them getting rid of plastic bags at stores or something. Not really sure if it applies to all stores or only certain districts.

It's missing PS5, XSX, and some newer games, but has a majority of the items bumped.

EDIT: mwt over

Got email from Gamestop about MWT with following link that has been mentioned: https://www.gamestop...ade/?q=mwt31221

 

Oddly it shows only 194 items, some of which trade values did not change. My list shows 268 trade value updates for today, including xb1, ps4 controllers, and joycons along with a bunch of 3ds games.

Hmm did the gift card appear in your cart or order confirmation? Did not for me.

I think only games listed here are eligible: https://www.gamestop...81321BuyPOGetGC

 

I placed 2 orders yesterday. GC shows as line item in cart and, as mentioned, received via email about 10 mins after placing the order.

3DS system prices now $140 for most at gamestop. I figured they would increase prices since they had been selling well when restocked. Other preowned systems increased in price as well.

Cool.. didn't see the fine print, hopefully still active thru the weekend. Might participate with the Tax Day 50% sale.   :beer:

Unfortunately end date shows 2/27 11:59PM CST, but maybe they'll mess up and keep it active.

Yeah but the real fun begins when you put the game in your cart and try to check out. 

 

General Ackbar anyone?  

It's a trap?
