This is a general range of what GameRush will give you for the game you're trading in. Obviously not all games will be like this, but it should be close.

This is becoming less common very quickly. Probably down to about 50% accurate.

They Sell/They Buy

$1.99 / $.25
$2.99 / $.50
$4.99 / $1.00
$6.99 / $1.50
$9.99 / $3.00
$12.99 / $5.00
$14.99 / $7.00
$16.99 / $8.00
$19.99 / $10.00
$22.99 / $12.00
$24.99 / $13.00-$15.00
$26.99 / $17.00
$29.99 / $18.00
$32.99 / $20.00
$34.99 / $21.00-$22.00
$39.99-$44.99 / $22.00-$35.00
$49.99 / $35.00-38.00

Can't think of anything to pre-order? Here's some ideas that are in the system... Credit to spin 03 and ksuwild25

Note on Game Rush release dates...keeping checking throughout Tuesday and Wednesday as thats when Game Rush gets games usually - never ever trust the Game Rush computer as it still goes by the Blockbuster date for traditional stores to receive their rental games (which is typically Friday).

OTHER INFO

Deals usually end on close of business on Monday and begin on open Tuesday (some special ones do start on Thursday usually around labor day, memorial day, etc.)

They also have coupons in magazines for great deals, so be sure to check EGM, GamePro, and several other magazines.

GameRush is starting to expand, so check the store locator every once in awhile to see if one is coming to an area near you.

All BlockBuster's should now accept trades, so the trade in prices for BB and GR should be similar, but normal BBs will not always have the deals that GameRush has.

GameRush accepts game trades without case and instructions and the games can be in poor condition depending on the employee.

You must be 18 and have a BB account and sign a trade agreement to trade at GameRush. If you are not 18, you can trade under a parent or guardian's BB acount, but they must sign a trade agreement.

Please be careful if you scam GameRush (by "flipping" games) they do have the abillity to ban you from all GameRush locations if they want to. Remember, discussion of "loopholes" and "flipping" should be kept in the thread linked at the beginning of this post. We've all had a year's worth of discussion on the ethics of capitalizing on the loopholes, but the fact remains - you sign a Trading Agreement and are subject to the conditions you agreed upon. If you abuse the system, chances are it'll catch up to you one way or another.

Release dates - Go by the shipping date. 9 times out of 10 it is not what the Blockbuster computer says. The computer date is when traditional stores can expect to receive their rental games.

Game Rush receives games typically on Tuesday and Wednesday of the games release. Only reason EB and Gamestop get them a day before is because they get special shipments or their dm picks the games up and brings back that evening (or they are near distribution centers).

Some games have street dates but this is few and far between (outrun 2, halo 2, star wars episode 3, doom 3 are it in the past 6 months).

That sure sucks for CoryCubed (I noticed he changed his explanation from legal to personal), I warned him a little while back that his posting may bring him heat within the BB organization. Even though he was not giving us any inside information, just sharing the actual deals, my guess is his actions were viewed as against BB's best interests. It's quite surprising how combative the upper BB management are, they certainly don't seem to be a customer service orientated company. And seem to act in a very punative manner against those people who they feel are working against their goals. I would not be surprised if CheepyD is subpeoned any day soon for his entire user list in some sort of BB legal action.

I'm really conflicted as to my own input into these discussions, in an earlier thread "The Watcher" implied that some of the trading behaviours discussed in this and the flipping thread could be considered illegal and reported to the police. I mentioned this to my friends at my local GR and they said, sure if we suspect that the games being traded are stolen, but the watcher's point was that activity construed as fraud, could also be reported. Clearly buying games and trading them back is not fraud, but proving that every game you trade is not stolen is certainly going to be a waste of some poor bastards time. I once beleived the number of class action suits issued against BB was just lawyers being lawyers, but of late I'm seeing patterns of discrimination and retaliation that just smack of intimidation.

Good Luck to you CoryCubed, If you have been fired for information sharing I hope your wrongful termination suit is highly profitable for you.

I don't know anything more of Cory's reasons for leaving CAG beyond what he posted in the last thread, I just agreed to take on the OP.

Considering Cory has his own things to deal with, I am sure he does not need his troubles voiced on here, so stoned99 you may want to edit your last post accordingly (pointing out someone's edits kinda defeats the purpose sometimes).

Also, again, this is the thread for discussion on deals, plain and simple. This is not the place to discuss "flipping", the "watcher", cory, sj41, me, whoever or whatever.

Sorry JAMMR, but I reserve the right to my own opinion. My post is a reaction to Cory's post, I can't post in the locked thread so this is the next best thing. I really believe that along with the deals posted in this thread, the consequences should also be discussed. I'm not advocating boasting about how someone screwed BB, but I do think a dialog that includes how to get banned belongs in the same thread as what deals are running. After all a niave reader would believe that heavily using the deals posted is acceptable behaviour. My experience in that regard would say otherwise. I'm assuming your only using these deals one time ever, because you're not worried about being banned for abusing a deal.

Look, obviously we don't know what happened with Cory (though I doubt he got fired - probably just caught hell from a higher up in BB - if he got fired he could let BB have it on this board :D).

However, his post on another site
http://www.ihatebloc...48&page=3&pp=10
*seems* to imply he thinks someone there might have "turned him in" - NOT THAT he did anything wrong, I might add.

'nuff said about that. He will be missed and I wish him well.

Now, has anyone seen anything new in the preorder system? They have GOT to have new stuff in there sooner or later.

Also, it seems, from looking at sites as varied as EB Games and EA Sport itself, that, in fact, they are NOT releasing NCAA Football 2006 for the Gamecube (though this information seems to be more difficult to find than it should be!). I have this preordered at Gamerush. Since I just picked up a copy of NCAA 2005 for GC at Best Buy, I might just play that and switch the preorder to something else. They had better let me do that if the game doesn't exist :D. I guess I'm going to have to fire off an email to the EA empire to see if the game is really going to be released for GC.

Edit - EA SUCKS! They have no way of sending an email from their web site - their "support" page just looks up articles by keyword. Can't they say under their NCAA Football 2006 page that they NO longer support the Gamecube? It is a bit odd since they put out the 2005 version and they seem to be supporting the Gamecube for all the other games they made 2005 versions for... Very annoying. I don't want their stupid crap any more... They owe me the last 10 minutes of my life back :D. I'm definitely switching that preorder - to a non-EA game if I can.

It's amazing how bad of a reaction CAG has earned itself, isn't it? And it's not even the majority of us. It's the asses who milk the system and use flipping to take advantage of the stores.

If things don't change soon, I sense some very bad blood about to flow between CAG and GameRush...

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

Thank God I've kept every receipt for buying games and trading since I started doing things with GR. They can just try and pull some crap with me and my unhealthy habit to keep almost everything will finally pay off.

I hope everything works out for Cory. All the help and information he has shared with us has been invaluable. Thanks for everything Cory!

Hmm, you know whats really funny about this is the cloak and dagger approach being used by the BB Corporate staff to police this board. This board has provided so much free advertising for GR it's just plain silly and Cheepy has not benefited from a penny of it. (No click through's to count, so no sale). The open discussions that permeate this board share ideas, both good and bad. Most of the bad ideas are flamed for what they are, BUT, we also share details that are advantageous to us all, such as the trade in prices. The same discussions provide feedback to the marketing folk at BB, this information in the past would have never reached them without expensive marketing studies. I for one feel like I should send BB a bill for all my instructive feedback. But like I said before, it looks like this board is now at odd's with BB. The bottom line is BB sales system is a dog, it turns like the Titanic, they cannot build in the safeguards they so need to run promotions like the trade 3 get 1 for 5$. And just one last point, the asses you mention are mostly gamers maximizing their dollars, no one can make so much to earn a living from flipping. BB is not just against flippers, BB is against anyone who is not making BB a profit. I dont recall EB ever getting reamed like this since the PSP fiasco, and look how quickly they caught on and canned the program.

Thanks Cory for all that you've done. You're the reason that I actually started going back to Blockbuster after years of being away (and I haven't even traded any games in yet, only made purchases).

Thanks again.

i know no management people over there care, but if i find out he got fired after going out of his way to help me other day, taking the time to call and make sure i got the games i was supposed to get (he thought i might have had an empty case with no disc), i will go into the store and let them know i will not spend one more penny in their stores....my screen name is what i do for a living and i do have quite a bit of disposable income that i spend mainly on theater equipment, DVDS AND GAMES !!!! he did nothing but inform people of ongoing deals....the same info is available in store....granted he did let us know days or occasionally weeks before but how is that hurting BB corp? i am pissed....

Thanks again Cory for all of your insight into the deals. It was great while it lasted.

Also, thanks to all those before Cory and Jammr for taking up the responsibilities of the new board.

It's actually a shame that it had to come to this with Gamerush. I enjoyed getting the most out of these deals (without flipping). It's just too bad that after June 20, we probably will never see a deal like this one again.

And once again I will never set foot inside of Blockbuster if these deals end.

Game deals and what not are the only reason I would ever go there. Thanks a lot Cory for your insight. It's some bullshit that the BB man is holding you down. It's not like you did anything illegal or were "Martha Stewarting" information...

Just wanted to list some other titles not on that list that are ringing up $4.77 each, NEW. They are Legend of Zelda (Classic NES Series), Zelda II Adventure of Link (Classic NES Series), and Castlevania (Classic NES Series). I'm assuming the other (Classic NES Series)titles are ringing up the same or less. These had stickers of $14.99, $14,99, and $9.99, so I think they were a hell of a deal! I also received Eternal Darkness, NEW for $4.99. I went to 4 different locations to get these. Thanks to the original poster for taking the time to make this thread.

Also, I traded in:
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (PS2) $1.50
Maximo (PS2) $1.50
SSX (PS2) $1.50

and received:
Lego Star Wars for $5.00. :)

Soonerdoc, call the BB Cory worked at and ask to speak to him...see if he's atleast still working there. Keep in mind, sharing this info cannot get you fired, what they did to him what scare him enough to where he won't post in fear of losing his job. Cory, if you read this thread, and I'm sure you still will, GET OUT.

Cory's posts put more money into the pockets of Blockbuster than the Gamerush website has ever contributed. Cory, if you've been penalized at all for your contributions to this site I highly recommend finding a company that will appreciate you.

I'll most likely stop up at my store tomorrow afternoon or Friday afternoon, so if the map updates haven't been posted yet I'll put em up.

ff2 and ff3 for 99 cents are excellent scores, very nice :-D

and from what I understand, BB workers get crapped on by corporate as bad as any retail workers.

From what it sounds like, they are making you a goat for people abusing these deals? typical.
"If it ain't fifty cents then I dont want it."

This deal came and went (soon) fast... was this promo really supposed to run until to September (originally)?

That would have been a long promo... too bad BB is pulling it early. I was hoping to trade in for games like GTA:SA (Xbox) but I doubt games like that will ever see the light of day on the used rack before 6/20!
