Shall we start laying odds how long your pledge lasts for? I am guessing you will be out by the end of the January. ;)

Would it count if someone else bought the games?

Quick question and sorry if it's been answered already, but can I use the Buy 2 get 1 free preowned coupon we got for shopping in store on Black Friday online or does it have to be in-store?  Thanks!

In store use only.

yeah I'd say so. It's basically a blockbuster wannabe from the Midwest. They usually team up with a local pizza chain to give free rentals when you buy a pie. Never had issues with em.

At least it still exists

No one has called or contacted me at all.

At first I assumed the DM, had to conduct an investigation due to the nature of the complaint. Tomorrow will be a week.

At this point I assume GameStop doesn’t GAF. I’m Contemplating blasting them on Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit

I wouldn't bother with the subreddit.

Okay, can someone please explain this to me in small, simple words that will allow my terribly dense brain to understand? I live in Southern California, which clearly does not qualify for the “same cash as credit” deal as stated by GameStop themselves. However, as an alleged consolation, California stores are being given an automatic 70% boost on all game trade-ins. So, if I have a copy of :wii: Metroid: Other M to trade, and GS’ website says it has a $1.00 value, does that mean I will actually receive $1.70 in trade value, even though the advertised 50%/60%/70% trade bump promotions ended on 7/22? I do not have an Elite membership: it would be strictly your Joe Schmoe off the street doing this deal. Please, help a sleep-deprived, gaming-obsessed fool out, CAG...[emoji30][emoji31][emoji21]

You will receive the base value times 1.5 unless you have a membership.

B1G150% on all video games until 7/15/18. Gamer Appreciation Day is on the 15th as well meaning you can rent any game for free for 5 nights. Limit 1 per account/family. Some newer/more popular games will have a $20 deposit.

Most PS3, 360, and Wii games are priced at $7.99, so it’ll be roughly $12 for two last gen games. Definitly YMMV, but tons of last gen games have good values at GameStop.

I’ll try to update the list of what’s for sale. Been slacking for a few months (maybe years) now haha.

Picked up quite a bit over the last few months..  Very YMMV on first party nintendo games (Protected).  Ask if they have a list of games that are to be marked for sale (YMMV), or ask to see if some games are available for purchase(hasn't been rented in 90 days). 


Farming Sim 15

Monster Jam 

Monster Jam POD 

Amazing Spider man 2 360

Spider Man WOS 360

Zoo Tycoon 

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 360 

Just to name a few...

For the buy 4 for $10 on games $4.99 and under. Do they have to be >$5 base price or only when they are 4.99 at purchase. Im wondering if I could get a game that's more expensive but use a cert to lower it or after the elite pro discount.

Only games that are 5 or less will quaify, anything higher would be discounted only by the certificate.

Would $22 base be a good time to trade in kirby return to dreamland or has it been higher in the past?

I honestly can't remember the last time the TIV was higher than right now, been at that value for several months.

Battlefront 2 Preowned for Xbox One is a no-go, it's still showing $55.

If you are Elite Pro. it is 43.99.  With B2G1F you come ahead or break even,

Is farming simulator worth $5? I used to like harvest Moon gbc as a kid

Both games involve farming, but that is all that they have in common.  If you want to run a modern era farm, then go for Farming Simulator.

An employee at a local store just told me they're going to be doing a prestige day on the 27th. Anyone know if there's truth to this?

Local store confirmed that there would be one on the 27th.
