No it doesn't. As shitty as the changes have been, you'll still be getting a $5 cert every month that you can just use on Xbox/PSN/eShop credit. That alone is worth keeping the membership.

Elite is $30. Pro is $15.

Why would elite members pay $15 extra for the same benefits as pro members?

Why all this work when you can just sign up to sell on Amazon and use their app, or one of the better low price paid apps, to scan books to sell FBA or even FBM if you don't mind individual shipments? It's much more profitable and you know before the buy *precisely* how much profit each book will bring.


A fair question.  I used to sell online, but I guess I just got tired of the clutter, the most inopportune times someone chooses to buy an item, how infrequently books sell (unless they are current releases), and the threat of return / actual returns / feedback extortion.


Selling online en masse is a full time job, imo.  Don't get me wrong though, I do look up unusual books, and sometimes sell them online if they are expensive and have a good sales rank.


I went to my chain bookstore again today, got about ~100 store credit for multiple boxes of books.  They had  SMB U Deluxe for $45+tax (loose), flippable for $49 at GS .. and a few PS3 Dualshock 3 controllers for $15/ea+tax flippable for $18 at GS.


The downside to the bookstore idea is that they generally don't have new releases, or anything that you actually want to buy.  So that is where store credit "transfers" from store-to-store come into play.


It's not for everyone, I can admit that, after hearing some of your feedback.


On another note..


I've got about $600 in GS credit saved up .. I'm kinda hoping JoyCons in all colors go on sale for Black Friday.  Not just red and grey (Zzzz...[!]).


Oh yeah, and the GS website kind of sucks.  That flashing from white / dark grey / white / dark grey while your trying a title name.  Man if someone is susceptible to seizures .. don't use the GS website.  I only get eye strain headaches, fortunately.  (others mentioned the sorting crapiness already, so goes without saying [oops too late].)

Is play/Asia the only retailer that regularly changes the preorder requirements with no notice? Would I have to worry about this happening with Best Buy or amazon?

Amazon is supposedly starting to lock in (i.e. charge well in advance of shipping) certain preorders in certain non-US markets.  It hasn't done so in the US just yet,  I haven't heard anything about Best Buy going in that direction, but they do an authorization at the time of preorder that drops off, so you do need to consider that as well.

Any other "tricks" to turn credit into something useful?

When Kohl’s has consoles and PSVR for way less than any other store on Black Friday plus $50-100 back in rewards... GameStop sells Kohl’s gift cards.

When the Nike Store sells last years Apple Watch at a true last year kinda price rather than a measly $30 off the new model like the Apple Store... GameStop sells Nike gift cards

If you collect G3 (blu-Ray/ps4/xbone size) steelbooks its a good idea to do a weekly search on amazon Germany for “Steelbook” then filter down to video game category. They’re made in Germany so their amazon gets a lot of them standalone for €10 or less usually.

That's G2, btw.

Click on your profile in the top right or to the left in your post, then the white "Edit my Profile," then "'Ignore' Preferences" in the left hand menu. Check all 3 boxes.

For what its worth guys, they sent me the new console, they actually took my old serial number off my old unit and replenished/refreshed the unit in the system as the “same one” even though its clearly not, the serial number was on the plastic off of my console lol

I was like come on, at least use some new adhesive if your going to replace my old serial....it wasnt even on! Like literally , they had it off, maybe to show me its the new one?

They would not have sent you the new extended battery life version weeks before the FCC approved it. You may have received a new console, but it isn’t the new revision with the new processor and extended battery life.

Can I still use a $20 in store cert for a $20 physical eshop card? I just realized I still have a lot of points on my account.

Defense Grid 2 is coming to the Switch:



For those that haven't played it, DG2 is a great tower defense game.

Brickseek shows in stock at $11.98. The app shows in stock at $33.99.

Should I even waste my time driving to the store to see which price will ring up in store?

Target app has always been weird about price for me. Not uncommon for it to display the wrong,usually default or original) price even when the actual in-store scanners and stickers say otherwise. Good for seeing if something is in-stock though.


How is Monster Hunter and Fire Emblem? I've been thinking about picking those games up.

Probably goes without saying, but from what I've heard the performance on the switch version of Fire Emblem Warriors is better. A major thing I've read is that there are sometimes timed moments where you need to kill a certain amount of enemies and the switch version is better in that regard because its able to spawn more enemies on screen where as the New 3DS version is limited.
