When using a $ off preowned game coupon does the amount of the coupon come off the price of the game before or after pro/elite discount? TIA

This idiot wants $12 each, I wouldn't pay $12 for the bundle

My favs that I saw on mine were NBA 2k17 for $15 and Madden 15 for $12.

Edit : Just saw your pic. Your idiot wins.

Does the monthly $5 off any one in-store item apply to gift cards (like Xbox or PSN cards)?  I'm guessing it doesn't, but there are no exclusions on the coupon.

If you're talking about the beta program coupon then the GS customer service on Twitter said that it would be good on digital stuff too. I assume at the least that would be PSN, XBOX, eshop, etc.

being the veteran flipper here, I'm surprised to see you asking about such a basic promo.

I've never had cause to buy more than 4 at a time lol. I'm only the veteran flipper because everyone else either left or got banned for making g-fuel jokes. I'm only average compared to my flipping predecessors. I just retained all the knowledge.

Has the PUR Pro membership been 20,000 points for a while, or is that a new development after the beta?


Was 15,000 on Friday when I traded 4 games.  I wasn't going to renew but did with the points.  got points a couple days later for my trades in NY.

So much for all that "But it's only a Beta!" nonsense. They are going to push this out no matter what I bet. The price increase is obviously going to be permanent now. Notice it now says "A 19.99 dollar value"?

Were you trying to buy a Mature game or buying in a shady ghetto Gamestop?

More like JD central. But they all like me there, so I don't give them any trouble. I do surveys after all.

That is correct. I managed to trade in 24 games (8 each) on two separate accounts and I'm not trade banned. 


I feel like I'm the only CAG person in my area cause I haven't seen anyone else do it.

As elite Pro memberships dry up they will be less and less competition for these games. If by some miracle they keep the program going I'll be like the only guy left chasing down games in 2021. :rofl:

#14176106 Official Collector's Edition Compilation X - 2019

Posted by Omni99 on 11 June 2019 - 04:09 AM

Looks like it's still up. Panic bought it thinking it would go immediately and just realized it's not even a real CE. Will probably just cancel and go with the Deluxe. It's ridiculous to charge that amount of money and not even bundle your CEs together properly.

You know, FF7 is my favorite game of all time. (MGS being my favorite series and MGS 3 being a close second). I have been talking for the past few years waiting for this that I would get whatever super expensive collectors edition they had, and even called the Cloud on a motorcycle figurine.

I got my pre order in. And now, I too am thinking of canceling it. Not so much because I changed my mind, but I thought I was getting the whole deal. A nice big box with the statue, extras...a package that really said "I got the Collector's edition". But if all it is is just the deluxe version and a statue shipped separately?? Now even I am probably going to cancel. I get almost everything the same in the deluxe anyways.

Edit : Just cancelled. Deluxe it is, just waiting on Gamestop now. Thanks for the help in this thread guys.

I have a feeling that first episode of the FF7 remake is going to be Midgar only and/or its getting delayed

Interesting that nothing outside of Midgar has been shown yet huh. I'm hoping for a cool reveal of gameplay beyond that section, otherwise we are in for more episodes than I thought.

Employee yesterday: "I don't think we can take Evolve anymore." Scans Evolve, trades in for $7.40. LOL.

Me "Sorry, I think that trade in value is wrong. It's XX.XX on the app right now"

Employee at store yesterday "Ok, I'll adjust it. I always take care of my customers"
Employee at next store "Ok, I'll change it no problem."
Employee at 3rd store "I'm sorry, but the system doesn't allow us to make changes on the trade in values. See, I'll even try (pretends to push a few buttons...)...yeah, it won't let us."

This breakdown of policy change over is most likely district-based and not per state so this process is likely going to lead to much misinformation and confusion. 

I'd still keep it around. We've learned that it's store based rather than account based, which is interesting. We can just put States as Y/N if there are conflicting reports. It's not meant to be a perfect guide.

On another note...what a day. I have tons of surveys to do. Hope some people made out good today too.

I've tried 8 or 9 times to purchase digital PlayStation and Xbox gift codes on the website with my GameStop gift card, and it won't work.  Has anyone else encountered a similar problem and can provide a solution other than going to a GameStop store?  I'm not in the mood for someone trying to upsell me today.

Honestly I'd take upselling over the horror stories of people trying to buy digital products off their website, especially with gift cards.

Also getting the no more points for trades (April 22 & 25) song & dance despite getting points for all of my trades in late May & early June.

Just to keep the data collection going, where are you located?

So with GameStop stock at it's lowest since 2003 how quickly do we need to get through our credit you reckon?

I know I'm going to basically grab eShop and Xbox Live cards but was waiting to see if we got any good promos.


You probably have a couple years.

I'm honestly thinking 3-4 years is a good estimate assuming they really can't right the ship. Just getting to the next console gen will keep them afloat for another 2-3 years after that, and with them coming next year that makes it 3-4 years.

This right now is all about the dividend going away, and the total inability of the new execs to articulate any kind of concrete plan to turn the thing around. I read some of the conference call corporate word salad BS. It was as far from inspiring as you can get.

How many (new) games of the same title can you trade in per day?

You can only trade one SKU per trade in at a store. You can trade at different stores but only 4 of the same SKU in a rolling 30 days or trade ban. Also, if it's new make sure you take the plastic off it first or they won't take it.
