    I read that too yesterday.  It is turning into a toy store a people transition to streaming and digital games.  I honestly don't buy as much on Xbox One since the Game Pass came out a year ago.  The manager at my local Gamestop said that they did more volume last year but because the games that came out were so bad or unfinished, they hardly made any money. (Remember the deep discounts on the games like Fallout 76 a few weeks after it debuted?)  I will have to make sure to use all of my trade credit there and use up my points.  they do give nice birthday specials like 20% off a used game and Buy 2, get a 3rd free.

    Yeah it will be interesting to see what will happen in the future regarding physical game media. While iTunes didn't completely destroy physical music media, big chains don't carry CD's anymore. The physical movie front is getting hurt, but it is holding out against movie streaming. Now physical games I think will be a different impact because the industry is going towards cloud based and streaming services more and the game industry trumps both music and movie industry as far as global sales. Like what the Sony president had said recently about consoles, they will be 'neeech' lol. Leaptrade needs to capitalize if Gamestop were to go away, otherwise other sites will take over in selling physical game media like eBay.

    The Xtra Points area of Powerup Rewards went bye bye today.  That's where you took surveys for points.  I racked up so many over the years.  I guess a bunch of us were abusing it.  Rats.  Gamestop's website got a complete overhaul today.  I think the app did too.

    Surveys take a long time to do. If you spend 10 mintues with Bing and another 30 mintues doing Gas surveries you should be able to easily get more then that. Heck try Fiver or Amazon M Turk. $25 every quarter is low. I can make that much Gamestop credit faster and legally. Heck I just got $80 from going to the thrift store and trading games in I spent $5. Well Talos may have scammed me beware. He said he was going to be gone a few days but he has yet to ship says shipping label created still. Said he used Paypal.

    You can get other gift cards quarterly from e-rewards like Best Buy and Amazon, both which carry video games.  I was just offering that as an example.  And yes there are thift store being cleaned out right now with the extra $5 deal going on at Gamestop right now.  I've only traded one in so far as to not arouse suspicion.  I may have to go tomorrow and try to get more stuff to put toward my BL3 pre-order.
