the most brilliant idea

if you're trying to avoid banking fees

Does anyone else use Gamestop as a bank?
I got really pissed off with US Bank because I kept overreacting my account even though I opted out,
and the same thing happened with my credit union when I got a debit card.
blow whenever I get paid I go preorder a whole ******** of games. Whenever I need money, I go to the
nearest gamestop and ask for my money back on a game I don' t want and make a withdrawal. The
lines are shorter at gamestop than at the bank and I can trade in old games and have money go
straight to my savings account. Gamestops are just as prevalent as banks in my town and I work at a
mall so it' s even more convenient than running an errand to the bank or using an ATM and getting
charged.
The gamestop people are starting to catch on that I' m just moving money around and only buying one
preordered game a year, if that, but there isn' t **** they can do about it. The best part is, since I always preorder every game coming out I' m still
guaranteed to get all the exclusive content whether or not I' m sure I want a certain game. It' s like they' re rewarding me for banking with them.

Last I knew returning any games, new or used, got you store credit and not actual money?

Need confirmation as I haven't used GameStop in years. You'd be surprised how much you might still go and play an old game years after you initially planned to sell it...

Get in-store credit.
Use in-store credit to pre-order game.
Cancel pre-order, accept currency.

Game over, user wins.

I think that would be called money laundering ............
User avatar #50 to #49 - trawllor (03/19/2014) [-]
nah, thats only if the money is ill gotten, or "dirty" money.
thats why you "launder" it. (like doing laundry)
to make it seem legit.

Only thing close to this I've done is buy a game, finish it in a couple of days, then return it to the shop saying it didnt work. Free games.

what I get from this post is, nobody knows what money laundering really is or how it is done.

buying things with dirty money and selling the items for clean money?
its a pretty simple concept.

There is no interest returns for a savings account with Gamestop.

The main problem I see with this, aside from it being maybe illegal (money laundering/tax evasion) is that you don't get interest from savings.
User avatar #35 to #28 - beardgasm (03/19/2014) [-]
It's not Illegal at all. You're not laundering money or failing to pay taxes.

Is this money laundering?

User avatar #32 to #16 - Shiny ONLINE (03/19/2014) [-]
It's only laundering if the money is the proceeds of criminal activity.

So, maybe.

Not trying to brag or anything, but after just a paycheck or two, I'd have pre ordered every damn game there. His paychecks must not be too much to fully spend it on games every pay period.

It honestly is a good short term investment. Keep in mind the Gamestop membership fee and the resale values that are perhaps a tenth of what the game is actually worth. I'd rather put my money into like a bike rental place. They always take deposits and you can rent out those bikes to other people, making money off your rental and having more money in deposit at the actual bike owner's shop.
