Walmart has Octopath Traveler for $10 (check brickseek and Walmart.com first), it trades in for $27 after $5 bonus trade and PUR bonus (10%).

Had my first bad experience with an employee in a long time. Sadly it was at my home store and with what I assume is the SL who took over for the normal SL. I went in to trade back 2 copies of FIFA for the G2L (1 PS4 and 1 X1), as well as return Star Wars Squadrons and Crash (because I re-bought them online to get Avengers at 50% off). First he says I can only trade in the PS4 version of FIFA because he sees I bought the Ultimate edition of FIFA for X1 (I did but I also bought the standard at that store and picked it up yesterday with the PS4 version). He doesn't want to hear it and is set on him being right. He goes through my purchase history more and then asks why I want to return Crash and Squadrons, I tell him that I bought them online to get a discount on another game. He uses a second computer to do some more checking (at this point I am guessing he just looked me up by name to see my other accounts). Said he would do the refund but would no longer allow me to return stuff. He mentions something about how I am getting the game coins on multiple accounts. No idea what that has to do with the returns, as neither were going to get me game coins (I didn't pre-order Crash). I told him my accounts were all approved by the DM and corporate. He just brushed it off. Ended up cancelling the pre-order I had and left. Not really sure if it's worth burning him on a survey. I also don't know if he is going to have my accounts flagged and call other stores.

You made it way too obvious that you were gaming the system and drew attention to your accounts in the process. You basically committed account self destruct.  Why did you try to do everything at once?

Count me in as one trying to get a Series X from the MS Store. I converted my Gamestop credit to MS credit because I thought that Gamestop would not survive Covid-19 because they were dying before Covid-19.

Toss that PS5 in the trash. Microsoft just bought Bethesda. All future Bethesda games will be Xbox and PC exclusives.

This generation more than any other, it seems like you have to buy both consoles or build a PC, if you want to play all of the games available.

Yikes, so walmart's return period is only 14 days for the ps5?

Must be returned within 30 days with a receipt to obtain a refund or exchange:
       • Most electronics, including but not limited to: drones, camcorders, digital cameras, digital music players, e-readers, tablets, laptops, PCs, televisions, portable video players, video game hardware, GPS units, audio systems, hoverboards, electric bicycles, electric scooters, and radio-controlled vehicles.



When I did my return, which was 2 years ago, their policy was 14 days.

It's $5 toward digital currency, essentially.  Or toward some random in-store impulse purchase, presumably not on sale.  I have used them before on $5 clearance T-shirts earlier this year, but I'm just buying digital currency nowadays.  I'm not sure what sticks and what doesn't at this moment.


You didn't mention being a Pro member, but if that was silently inferred, the real draw for Pro IMO is the 10% bonus to base TiV, assuming you happen to trade alot, like some of us do...


I guess it also nice not verbally giving out my phone number for everyone in line to hear and possibly do a reverse-look-up, etc - after they already saw what I bought, or see that I have alot to trade.

Yes, I'm Pro and had Elite before. I stopped flipping games after they killed off the Elite membership. Everything that seems interesting to me which is DoTD and the current Cyber sale, does not work with the $5 PUR monthly coupons. I'm currently using my coupons on PSN and Xbox gift cards.

Anyone else starting to feel like the $5 monthly PUR cert is worthless since it has so many restrictions? It can't be use on sale items or promos.

I bought four Sims 4 (xbox one) to flip


I traded in the 1st and 2nd copies alone at different stores. I traded the 3rd one towards Marvel Avengers with a bunch of other games to get the extra 20%.


However, when trading in the 1st copy I gave the employee my ID and signed the pad. He then starts digging in the cashier for cash and I told him "No I wanted trade credit." He throws away the receipt and I had to give him my ID and sign again for trade credit. So do you think that counted as two trade-ins of that game? Rather not get trade banned

He voided the transaction, that's why he asked you for your information again. You should be fine.

I don't blame them for asking. Just look at the $5 monthly PUR certs. It says in store only but it also works online. Gamestop is vague with their wording sometimes.

Can take a loss on the digital edition because you are going to make it up on digital software purchases. 


The reason for the pricing is probably more to push people to buying the digital version rather than just cost related. Sony wants more people doing everything digital.


That makes a lot of since. I currently don't own anymore physical PS4 games, since having PS+ and the PSN sales, I have gone all digital, but I would still buy the BRPS5 just in case a game is cheaper (Target clearance and Gamestop sales) than digital. It's funny how the tables have turned because when I had a PS3, I was the one who thought that I would never go digital because I like being able to trade in my games when I finish them. Now I like not having to hear the disc drive at all (yes I know the game installs on the hard drive).

I wish Gamestop would go back to opening at 10am. Having to wait until 12pm here in Texas is torture because it gets to 98 degrees (feels like temperature) by then.

Were the "$10 off $50" and "$15 off $75" coupons online only or good in-store as well? 

Online only (WEB in the code) and they expire today.
