#13328445 Walmart Trade In Promo May 14th -May 20th

Posted by SigV on 14 May 2016 - 05:22 PM

Tried out this service recently. I traded in Star Wars Battlefront(because lets be honest with our selves with that game) haha. Anyway I sent it in and it is taking them ages to process the game once receiving it. I hope to get my money soon because I want to see that 22 Towards buying something new or preowned that I might actually like other then Doom.


For me it takes a good 2-2.5 weeks for them to process and send me the e-gift card.

Dear H. Joly, 


Why do you have such good sales but ship your items like sheet. All I want is a PS4 disc that hasn't come lose and the case that hasn't been stepped on. I don't like it when you cram 3 games in a small bubble mailer. Those boxes you used during the holidays were awesome.

I've got a dilemma - my backlog is absolutely stupid.  Like 32 games with over 2/3 of them still in their original shrink wrap.


Money is going to be tight for me in the coming months due to a recent breakup.  I'll be assuming the entirety of the lease and bills at my little bachelor shack.  My income will take care of it with a modest amount left for food and an occasional small indulgence here and there.  


Would you guys go full boat on this 50% or wait for a chance at another summer flip-a-geddon?  I know you guys aren't my financial consultants - just wanted to hear some educated input.



Just saying CAG has some of the best financial consultants. Buy, Hold, Sell 


With that said, if the 50% makes the game more than you paid or more than market price/used price I would trade it in. Ideally it is best to wait for a stealth bump with a 50% to maximize return on said investment. (Unfortunately you have to be careful about the ban hammer for amount traded in within 30 days.)

I hope you guys like the random shit blocking your access to the registers.

If people are uneasy about returning the division after using a 50% coupon an option is to hold on to the game and do an exchange when uncharted 4 comes out


I'll even walk you through the conversation

U: I would like to exchange this game I bought a few weeks back for uncharted 4

GS: Did you pre-order uncharted 4?

U: No u motherlover

GS: Well we have one copy we can sell you, but next time you need to preorder.

GS: Is there anything wrong with this game "the division" your returning?

U: No, I bought it but just didn't have the time to play it

GS: Oh ok, here you go. Would you like to preorder anything? Be sure to tell GS how we did and you could win one $25 dollar gift card.

Welcome to the "Paypal Digital Gifts thinks you're a thief for no good reason, so good luck buying anything from them unless you sit on the phone forever" club!

Thanks for the translation of the error code. I too am a rogue and was told I need to call in and answer 3 security questions any time I need to make a purchase. 

#13261198 Redbox Sale Mar. 21st-27th Bloodborne $8.99, etc

My experience: 


I went to a supermarket redbox that sells games and bought halo masterchief and state of decay and both games were pristine, not a scratch. The redbox was inside in the air conditioned part of the supermarket, thank god I didn't have to waste my time with paper discs.

Had an employee scan X1 dragon age inquisition at Wesley chapel, target. It was NOT part of the promo. Grabbed myself metro, sleeping dogs, and Walking dead S2

Edit: oh they also had a signage up for it B1G2 and reason was for discontinued games.


Hey I met you at the Wesley Chapel location. Unfortunately Rugby 15 XBOX 1 was 29.99, too rich for me. 


Picked up 3x Tropico 5 Xbox 360 for some co-op fun for $19.99

#13124193 Gamestop B2G1 free on all pre-owned products (12/23 - 12/28)

Posted by SigV on 27 December 2015 - 05:49 PM

Anyone know a good trick to check used inventory for games currently on sale?  All the top titles - JC3, Battlefront, BLOPS3 - are $10-15 off and so both the app and webstore won't let you check in store inventory on used copies, only new, cuz of the sale.    I wonder if they have even pulled used copies of those games off the shelves and will restock them after the sale is over...


Best Buy is still running a 30% trade in bonus this week, and it'd be a nice way to move some credit over but I am not running around to every gamestop around me.


You know there is an easier way to move credit instead of running around to every gamestop trying to find high values games.


GS buy Ebay gift card to use on paypal digital gifts to buy Best Buy GC

GS buy Amazon gift card to use on Amazon


Then if you want you can move it the other way


Best Buy buy Ebay gift card to use on paypal digital gifts to buy GS GC


Of course you lose out on the profit of $2-$10 dollars of finding high value games at GS and trading it to BB during promotions

#13098965 Dell Promo Deals (now Wiki)

Posted by SigV on 13 December 2015 - 10:41 PM

Called Dell to get a pricematch on a game that is to 59.99 to Best Buy's 29.99 price. They initially told me they don't pricematch games. Then was put on hold and told they can pricematch to 39.99 but not 29.99.


Said no thanks and was put on hold again. Came back and said they can do $31.99 but not $29.99. Kindly said no thanks again. Dell lady tells me its, "only 2 dollars difference and I should get it." Said no thanks and put the phone down. Dell lady calls me back and said she can do $29.99.


Didn't think I had to go through such international negotiations to get a pricematch. But I cashed out all my rewards and hope to never deal with dell again. 


Edit: just noticed the lady forgot to add my dell advantage account and gave me the slow shipping option saying it will be delivered on 12/30. Thanks dell.

It's broken, you can't. 

Thanks for confirming its broken. I've been trying to do the asterisk* trick for the last couple weeks. 


On a side note, mybb rewards history has been down for the last week. I am unable to view past trade ins and in store purchases but my online order history works. Weird.
