#14095500 Facebook Deals Thread

Posted by Adhiman on 30 November 2018 - 07:31 PM

My first problem with Daily Steals.  My copy of Let's Go Evee is a Euro game, when they showed the North American.  I requested a return, so we'll see where that goes.


Does it actually matter though? Not dismissing your frustration, but I thought Switch was region free. I guess there could be issues with reselling it.

Spider-Man (PS4) (Must select Latin American packaging) - $30

Also, the Switch for $180 was in stock as recently as 30 minutes ago according to ResetEra. Sold out almost immediately though.


#14093902 Facebook Deals Thread

Posted by Adhiman on 28 November 2018 - 03:35 AM

I thought it might be a good idea to get a thread going. Some of the deals popping up on FB are ridiculous so a centralized place to talk about them would be nice. Didn't want to title it "Daily Steals" since it looks like other companies have been posting stuff for cheap too (Big Dog Retail).

How are these Facebook sellers able to sell things for so cheap?

It looks like Facebook is subsidizing the price of various things in order to get people to start using their marketplace. These aren't "fell off of the truck" goods.

Why should I trust random Facebook sellers?

Facebook themselves will refund you if you don't receive your packages, or if they're not as described. Several people from CAG and Slickdeals who placed order with Daily Steals in particular are reporting that their purchases are new and not pre-owned.

What other discounts are there?

There looks to be another random $10 off offer that applies to your first order. However, not everyone is getting them. Possibly the coupon is Android only but no one can confirm from what I've seen so far.

All shipping is free. Doesn't look like there are any taxes either.

Daily Steals has a 30 day return policy on new/unused items.
Active Deals (not complete list):

Battlefield V (PS4) - $30
Fallout 76 (PS4) - $30 DEAD
Darksiders III (PS4) - $35
Xbox One Controller - $20 DEAD
DualShock 4 - $25 DEAD
Switch Pro Controller - $40 DEAD
Nintendo Switch - $179 DEAD
Hitman 2 (PS4) - $30
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Breeze (Switch) - $30 DEAD
Super Mario Party (Switch) - $35 DEAD
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch) - $40 DEAD
Pokemon Let's Go: Eevee! (Swtich) - $35 DEAD
Just Cause 4 (PS4) - $35 DEAD
Spider-Man (PS4) (Must select Latin American packaging) - $30 BACK TO $60
PS4 in-ear headset - $20

Red Dead Redemption 2 (XO) - $50

NOTE ABOUT DEAD DEALS: It seems that these randomly go in and out of stock. The Switch deal has been down several times but keeps coming back. Pay attention to them and you may get lucky!

This OP is extremely bare bones and is a work in progress. Please feel free to let me know what I should add!

Just figured I'd post. It might be old news to most but while in store this weekend I renewed my membership and they told me Elite was discontinued.


Yeah I think we’ve known since the summer.

It creates inflation... people charging for more than what the item is worth and making it harder to obtain for someone who actually wants it.


This is bullshit. I’ve seen 10 ads or so on eBay selling it for $650-$750. With tax, the bundle would be $700 from a retailer for a new One X and elite controller. I was planning to sell mine for about this much too. There literally is no inflation at the moment.

I agree with this... I've won and it pisses me off that people just enter these contests to make a quick cash grab by selling their prize.


I don’t understand why it’d bother you though. You’re no more entitled to one than someone who would rather sell it.

Not sure if it’s been discussed but I saw a Pro Day weekend sign at my local store. Wasn’t going in so I didn’t get a good look.

Doc, I wish I could give you an Internet hug.

My only advice (to everyone in general) is to get to know the associates at your local stores. Not on a personal basis, but just enough to figure out who’s cool, who’s a junior detective, who is uninformed, etc. I pretty much can characterize everyone at the 4 stores closest to me.

Pro day soon and I have:

20% off B-day coupon

We’re eating good, boys.

lost my trade in cards, does this method still work or am I screwed?
https://www.gamestop...6&utm_content=5

I got it in an email ages ago but remember hearing it was hit and miss here. Or can I go into a gamestop and ask, seems like an L waiting to happen.
I have some receipts from past purchases with a a trade credit number but dont think they are the ones I lost.

Just tried and it should work. I had $27.

I still have a B2G1 to use before 9/29. Have to figure out what to get. Almost nothing new-ish looks interesting. Might just flip something.

Edit: talked to a customer service rep and it can take 48 hours. He also said they should be able to issue you a new one if it doesn’t work.

Does anyone know what accessories the iPhone X versions sold by GS come with?


I’ve bough 3 iPhones in the past from GS (thanks to B2G1). All three came with third party headphones and chargers.

Are they actually doing double points this weekend? I'm not seeing it anywhere outside of a reddit post.


Yeah I got an email yesterday.

That's amazing. Idk what my life was like before CAG.. a poor ass gamer. Still kicking myself for missing GS flipcalypse.


Got a 4K TV (via Amazon GCs), HTC Vive, and 3 iPhone 7s from GameStop flips last summer. It was glorious. I haven’t seen any deal deal that comes even close to that.
