...the $5 per month is great because all it takes is 3 months to make back your $$$$ and then after that it's basically free money. plus with bb gcu gone, amz no longer does discounts, etc. this is the only way to get money off of brand new games so i'm def going to do all my preorders there now...
Walmart has been selling brand new games for ~20% off in store for the past year.

Cancellation email as well. Said my order was cancelled (though 2 of 4 games I've already received). Paid with trade credit so ugh. They sent me a brand new Mario Kart already. What the heck are they doing over there. It's a shame their business is run so poorly.

So for those of you that renewed Pro membership with an active membership, what could you spend the first $5 cert on the receipt on? I saw it wasnt usable on pre-owned until spring 2020 and didn't work on a GS GC, but are gaming gift cards allowed ($5 eshop?) or just full priced non-sale merch or new games?
I bought a $10 eShop card as they said that was the lowest value I could get (had to be a physical eShop card).

Starting off my B2G2 online orders strong with a copy of Fire Emblem Warriors in the 3 Houses case. Thanks GameStop.
Haha I had Breath of the Wild in a Link's Awakening case (I ordered LA). Called in to support and they said they'd mail out the correct game. Took about 3 weeks but it did show up and I returned BOTW to a local store as they asked. Store staff wanted to give me $50 in cash and I insisted, nope, you're just to keep it. I then watched the employee scan the LA case into their inventory - no doubt perpetuating the problem for the next customer. I tried.

I got my buddy into flipping during the $5 bonus last week. He used my elite pro acc to buy and his pro to sell, which is awesome for me cause of the extra points I accumulate even when not flipping. During B2G2 I made a plan with him when I started to notice the lack prime switch tradable games out there. Basically both of us would go into a gs store fairly close apart to each other, trade in all our best shit, and then we would drive to where the other just traded in their stuff, play dumb and ask if they had a switch title the other just traded-in in stock pre owned. They would usually be like oh yea someone just dropped it off and have the games behind the counter so i would ask to look at the whole stack an pretty much buy it all or id take the 1 or 2 good titles off the shelf and ask if they had a mario game he just traded in preowned and look at the stack again and buy most of it lol... this was a good last hurrah. Only a handfull of times did they sell one of the games we just traded in, but then we'd just pick out a lower trade value switch game like lets go pikachu or hyrule warriors or something..

If I understand, the current flyer extends 'til tomorrow the 24th.
Tomorrow is the last confirmed day to dump Switch games for the +$5 bonus.
Unless it was extended again? I Saw the flyer that got already extended from the 21st to the "25th", ie 24th, since they are closed Christmas.
If this is incorrect, please mention it.
Some deals got hyper-extended 'til Dec 31st .. but if you are doing 4/$60 it would suck to be stuck with games worth less, for sure, if the +$5 bonus vanishes.

Not sure but the website is confusing. I couldn't tell if my local Game Stops (2) had them. The app on my phone indicated one of them did and the other did not.
Maybe try the mobile app? Now when I look the store I got mine at shows it out of stock on the mobile app. The other store didn't have them earlier and still doesn't according to the app.
In the past I have found they have the consoles even though inventory says no. That was a few years ago though.
Just call and ask them to hold one for you if they have it.

If you all really want to nerd out on the financial stuff, listen to the 45 minute conference call > https://edge.media-s.../mmc/p/dk2bdxpw
One of my favorite parts is around the 13 minute mark where the CEO brags about how consumers are spending more time on their new website. UH YEAH GEORGE thanks for the inability to filter on availability of items and having to click "load more" 50,000 times a day. Thank you for the friction-less experience.
