Because I like to test things out, here are the results:


+$5 Switch game promo is still active and just needs to be $2+ TIV

+$5 PS4/XB1 only applies to games over $5 TIV as described

You can't pre-order FFXVI or God of War Next, so you need to put at least $5 down on whatever PS5 game is in the system. 


Manager said all the GS in the area sold-out of PS5s yesterday, with a "NO PS5 AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER" sign right on the door.  :bomb:

Thanks for posting this, my local family video is closing soon so all there games are marked down, just stocked up recently on a handful and this promo will help with just preordering my PS5 yesterday.

Anyone try and get 4 copies of The Division 2 with 4/$10? :)

yep, picked up 2 xbox and 2 PS4.  Took one of each copy to a local game store and got $20 so worked out well.

interesting game story from this morning trip.  When  checking me out a couple games with the b2g1 i saw someone picking up a new switch game.  The girl ringing the person up was new and trying to help out them out by mentioning they could get a used copy $5 cheaper.  Then i hear the supervisor call her over and say " don't tell them that....." which then then i could tell she was surprised but told the customer sry never mind about that (not her fault).  I was thinking what the hell is the big deal lol?  Then then when the supervisor was ringing me out i mentioned how it sucks you don't get the 10% or 20% discount anymore, which he goes on to say that people think the $5 coupon is better because it can be used on anything which i told him i disagree as the discount saved more in the long run.  I can see why people are say GS won't be around much longer.

Not real worried whether gamestop will ship my games, as I've ordered ~100 games between Black Friday and the B2G2 and received all the games.

What I AM worried about is them shipping the correct games. Had 2-3 games that weren't correct, though the games I ordered this time were a bit more abstract and had subtitles (i.e. apparently Gamestop employees can't read subtitles and/or can't match sku numbers)

I still remember the days when gamestop forgot to ship one of the games in my order and it was missing in the package and when i contacted customer service they mentioned they would send out the missing the game.  Come to find out they actually just reshipped my whole order again which netted a few double copies, lol

One of the DoTD items is preowned bloodborne for $5.  After elite, cag16, and tax, I paid 3.64 for the disc I unloaded for 12-14 during the +5 promo.


Couldn't do instore pickup through the website - had to order through the app.

Can also use the $5 off pre owned certs making them free in store.  Just picked up bloodborne.

If you have multiple accounts and have used your ID to trade in on any of them your ID will be linked to all those accounts no matter which ones you trade in on.  So if you hit the trade limit it will hit all your accounts that are tied to your ID you used to trade in with.

Damn. It’s almost 2:30, and there’s only 1 car here aside from me. Last year there was a definite drop in dorks waiting outside, but there were at least 20 or so by now.

Probably due to the fact you can pretty much get any of the deals online and don't have to deal with traffic or people anymore.

Seen today at my neighborhood HPB. I rest my case. Pricing clearly hasn't been updated in years. Anyone wanna pay $30 for a USED copy of Bloodborne? (Pic is right side up in my phone..not sure why it's sideways here).

 I honestly think sometimes when they take trades they look up items on ebay and price them on the last going Ebay sold listing and never update the price from there.

If you have elite pro and GCU still I found a few credit movers to Best Buy w b2g1 sale if bought in 3's.

Divinity 2 (Xbox one)
Darksiders 3 (Ps4)

NBA 2K19 switch or Ps4
WWE 2k19 PS4

Naruto to Boruto shinobi stickers PS4 or Xbox one

Black Clover quartet knights

All are 18.99 - 15.19 after elite pro (except back clover w is cheaper still) and as of today 7/3 trade in at BB for 10 - 11 after gcu (except divinty 2 which is 12 - 13.20). Even with my CA tax it's still slightly better than a 1:1

Thanks for sharing this. Managed to pick up a few things from close stores. Kind of nice to have some BB credit agin.

there is a B2G1 sale going on? where them games already discounted?

It will YMMV on what games you store may have on sale.  They had all 3 priced at 29.99 each.  I believe someone said the B2G1 is going on all month.

Does Wii Sports and Sports Resort typically jump up a lot with the stealth bumps? I remember last week it was like $15 or something but today it's at like $4. Debating if I should trade in the couple copies I've found thrifting for the $6.80 or just hang on to them hoping for a steath bump. I only paid a dollar or two for each i think. 

i would wait till this Friday. It is possible we could have a trade bump next weekend.

Just wanted to post a quick update on the Chrono Trigger cartridge i did get. I can confirm it is a legit copy, also has the 1993 Nintendo stamp on the board. 


Still surprised they had it priced so low.
