GameStop’s Latest Flash Sale Is Different Than Usual, But It Might Work Out Well For You

GameStop has been hosting plenty of flash sales on pre-owned games as of late, but its new two-day promotion offers something a bit different. Through tomorrow, June 25, you can save 50% on any pre-owned game when you buy a new game priced $30 or more. It’s an interesting promotion for sure, and it could really work out in your favor depending on which games you select.

The sale really does cover every new game listed at $30 or more, and every single pre-owned game on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. The promotion is particularly good for first-party Switch games, which rarely receive discounts. For instance, if you’re looking to jump on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons bandwagon, you can grab a new copy for $60 and then pick up a pre-owned Switch title for 50% off. That means you could snag The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey for $27.49.

Of course, you could also prioritize finding the cheapest new game possible and then saving big on a more expensive pre-owned game. SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, Madden NFL 20, Mortal Kombat 11, and Grand Theft Auto V are just several examples of games that cost $30. Buying a $30 title and then getting a game like Breath of the Wild is like getting two games for the price of one ($57.49 combined cost).

Also, if you haven’t picked up The Last of Us Part II yet, GameStop’s flash sale could be great. While The Last of Us 2 hasn’t been discounted anywhere, you can use this opportunity to save on a second game when picking it up. For example, Death Stranding and MLB The Show 20 are currently discounted to $35 each pre-owned, which means you’d get either of them for $17.49.

In addition to the latest flash sale, you’ll want to check GameStop this weekend, as the retailer is hosting another Pro Day Sale for PowerUp Rewards Pro members.
