#14173769 Google Stadia Founder's Edition - $129

Posted by PandaJohnson on 08 June 2019 - 03:19 PM

So, I am not reading what y'all are seeing.
If you have the sub, you get access to free games.  Free being no more out of pocket.
If you have free, you have to buy the license for games you want to play.
(scroll down about half way to see the breakdown)

At the moment the only game that can be stream as part of the subscription package is destiny 2.

Got the email and code. Won’t apply to my family plan (I assume since t-mobile already covers it under their free Netflix promo)... here the code

I appreciate it, but I couldn't find what you're referring to. I tried checking out and applying the card number there and it specifically indicates the area for gift cards and PUR trade credit is the same area but it still shows invalid at checkout. I guess i'm going to have to go into the store and hope someone can re-issue the credit under a new number.


This is how it looks like in thebgamestop app, maybe desktop is different.

I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance. I just recently tried to make an online purchase with my trade-in credit that's on my Elite Pro card and it's showing that the gift card number is invalid, but a recent recent shows the same card number with a balance from my last trade-in. I haven't done anything unusual to get banned, etc. Is this a simple fix or am I going to have problems?

There should be two categories under payment options “gift cards” and “power up reward trade credit”. Should work under the power up reward.

If you're not flipping, then I'd do a bad survey and get ahold of the district leader too. Tell them what that moron said to you.

Agree, good advice. Conversely, if a employee does a good job, take the 5 minutes and do the survey. Those surveys are a big deal to them.

Is buying games and immediately selling back something that frown upon by employees? Is it it a trade they will reject (I assume they have the discretion to reject any trade they want). My GCU ended so am giving the GameStop/ trading method so am new to this. I have 4 games towards the six game credit bump, and I was thinking of just buying (using already existing credit) two copies of fifa 18 and trading back in order to reach the 6 game threshold.

FIFA 18 got a 2 dollar bump and has a base of 20. Have not played it in a while. Going to include as part of my stack of 6 games to trade towards the promo. Just a couple of months till fifa 19 anyway.

#13997397 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by PandaJohnson on 20 May 2018 - 01:38 AM

Membership expires in a month. In the long run I’ll end up saying money, thus maybe living up to the title of cheap ass gamer. GCU lead me to actually buying more games on day 1 (especially if they were part of the 10 dollar pre order bonus). And due to the points Best Buy became my go to spot with electronics when if I just search a bit longer I could have found an item a bit cheaper else where. only became a elite plus member with GCU (4 years straight). I would say about just 500-800 dollars was in games. Will use family members target employee discount from now on.

Hmm.. I found a copy of South Park Gold or PS4, but it scanned at $59.99 at the cash register. Does the discount show up only when you actually go to make the payment? or is it just YMMV?

Same thing happened to me. Maybe it depends on market. My happen in NYC, specifically in Queens.

#13604705 Best Buy: Visa Checkout $25 off $100 (expires 1/21)

Posted by PandaJohnson on 20 January 2017 - 01:38 AM

Made another order, got Mass Effect Andromeda, YookaLaylee, and Dr Strange 3d Bluray Steel book for $95.


Is there really no limit to how many orders you can make with this deal? And how does the $10 reward certificate work with game pre-orders? Do you get that for every game you pre-order?  I didn't see any mention of that on the games pre-order page.

Its only for games that are under the promo, which unfortunately has no game listed. But if any game you pre-ordered now were to get added you would get the 10 dollars in reward certificate.

uhhh ok?  Duh?  Hahaha.  The whole point is that it never hurts to ask.  If I followed sage CAG advice, I wouldn't have an additional $28 credited.

I benefited from previous mistakes as well. Just that between your post and a previous poster being able to do the same. Some might have started thinking it was a new policy. Just wanted to provide some info about policy before some start thiking its guarateed. But yeah, never hurts to ask.

#12905939 Best Buy Ad 9/6-9/12

Posted by PandaJohnson on 06 September 2015 - 03:55 PM

So basically this turns into another "lets find the right cashier" type of deal because the ad was a typo and its posted in stores that it was wrong?
This is the type of stuff that makes this site as bad as the others easily..

I took the ad to target, that takes finding the right cashier out of the equation

#12806258 Just Cause 3 Collector's Edition $109 AMAZON, BEST BUY $87.99 GCU

Posted by PandaJohnson on 15 July 2015 - 04:52 PM

Not only is it in stock at best buy, it's also cheaper. $109, 87.99 with GCU.

*nvm, I guess the extra 10 dollars for the gamestop preorder is for extra content.

 Ah, got it. Promotional Period start at 12am PST on 3/29 (today aka now, which means nothing), but the Flash Sale starts at 12pm PST on 3/30 (the actual "on sale" timeframe). Not really an issue on understanding AM/PM, but rather why a Promotional Period is even listed.

Worse, its a reading comprehension issue.
