I work for GameStop – 4 tips will save you cash EVERY time you shop, including ‘trade in’ trick


A GAMESTOP employee has taken to TikTok to share their top tips for saving big on gaming habits.

Check out these tips coming from the inside.

“You are getting paid to buy the Pro membership,” the TikTok started.

Pro members at GameStop are given $10 worth of loyalty points and a $5 dollar monthly credit to the store.

It’s a $60 value that comes completely free with signing up.

The TikToker goes onto mention that GameStop will buy back products from pro members at a higher premium – all the more reason to sign up.

Pro members also have the benefit of getting access to limited inventory – and the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X are selling faster than they can be replenished.

“Everybody is having trouble getting them, I’m sure that’s no secret at this point,” he said.

“Only pro members are eligible to buy PS5s and Xbox Series Xs when they become available at GameStop.”

He notes that the consoles come in more expensive bundle packages with ancillary products – but advises viewers to sell back what they don’t want and keep the console.

Next, the GameStop expert insists on shelling out extra for warranties on all products.

He says that warranties at the store are forgiving and the store will replace hardware with damage as light as a sticky button.

The text on the video also notes that manufacturers can take ages to fulfill a warranty whereas GameStop takes two weeks.

“I promise you, it’s worth it. Do it.”

Lastly, the TikTok touches on the trade-in protocol at GameStop.

The store has famously low returns for old tech – but the secret is to trade in items for new products or store credit, rather than cash.
