Just a heads up; we were told at work today that, on June 30th, we're going to be getting coupons for those who have pre-ordered NCAA '09; namely, trade two Wii/PS3/360 games in, get an extra $15. I'm pretty sure it didn't specify a limit, so just thought I'd throw that out there for people.

EDIT: Thanks, DJ Kunai, for the scans.

Hmm, this is a better deal than the current $10 trade in bonus. Maybe I'll hold onto my games and take advantage of this. Did anyone have any luck getting a scan?

It sounds like it is a deal specifically for NCAA 09.

Is there an exclusions list?

I'm not into sports game how about trading in to get the bonus store credit, then returning NCAA 09 a few days later to get the credit back?

Just trade the games in towards a preorder of NCAA 09, put $5 of trade in credit down to reserve NCAA and put the balance on your edge card. Then just cancel the preorder after the game releases and get your $5 back.

As far as holding onto games until then, for all we know, the trade-in values might go down in a few days when this extra $15 thing happens. Just kinda guessing here; but if that happens, the extra $5 might not be worth it. Plus the hassle of pre-ordering MCAA 09 (unless you actually want it, that is).

I have 6 games to trade, I'm just gonna go ahead and do it today.

Ok I just got a phone call from GS about this....... They said stop in and pick up your coupons NOW and they are available as supplies last.. So if you preordered NCAA 09 already expect a call.

Sooo is there any confirmation on what exactly this promo is?

My understanding:

Preorder NCAA09
Get a coupon that you can use (during a preset time frame im assuming) to trade in any 2 next gen games and get a $15 bonus on top of the TIV credit.

It doesnt have to be applied to the NCAA09 game.

Does that sound right? If so this could be more epic then the past one depending on how many $15 credits you get (as in 2 games only or multiples of 2 each get $15).

They had the coupons out at my local EB, took a couple. They expire on 8/17/08. I did preorder NCAA at the time, but I think the stack was for anyone to take.

Columbia, MO Gamestop.

I am pretty sure it only works on two games, but I'm not sure.

Can you scan/post the coupon? And even if its only 2 games at a store. You can prob get more of the coupon and go to other stores. I know I have about 10 GS's within 25 miles of me.

Hate to burst all the "Post a Scan" posts, but the stores got an email to not accept any scanned or photocopied coupons for this, so it's going to be YMMV if/when one gets posted

Well thats fine but I just want to see the coupon and get the details off of it to maybe clear up EXACTLY what the promo is.

I didn't see them in my marketing box, so I'm going to have to look again. I haven't actually seen the coupon yet myself, so I'm not sure of all the details yet.

got a automated call last night ("for those who have preordered NCAA 2009") telling me I could pick up the coupon at my local Gamestop. I happened to be near the store today while I was out and stopped in - no one there had heard of the deal or the coupon, including the manager who normally is very informed about all the deals and coupons.

Sorry, been busy the past couple days and forgot to stop in. The coupon's good for general credit, not just applied towards NCAA '09, and--if anybody says they haven't heard of it/don't know anything about it--ask them to check the Store Informer over the last few days. I think it was either the 23rd, 24th, or 25th when we received the e-mail for this.

As for the people posting about scans and such, yeah; I seem to remember there being something about no scanned/photocopied coupons.

Just came back from my local GS around the corner before the above post's info. They had never heard of the coupon. however, they found the extra 20% off UPC and tried to stack. Obviously, it didn't work. I'll try another GS with the above information. I only have two more Wii games to turn in and would like to grab that extra $5.

so how are people doing the trade ins? This sounds like a good plan as I have no intention of playing NCAA 09

Also sounds to good to be true can I dump 4 games across from each platforming earning an extra $30 or do I need to trade in on seperate transactions to gain the $15 extra each?

I picked up one of these tonight...it was sitting on the shelf at register desk when I was buying some games, so I grabbed one....The front says "by reserving any version of NCAA football 09, this coupon entitles you to trade 2 xbox 360, PS3, or Wii games and get an extra $15 trade-in credit'.

The wording is a bit unclear if it has to be done in one transaction/same transaction as the reserve or if this coupon is something you are supposed to get AFTER you make the reserve.

The back, which has big UPC code to be scanned, doesn't say anything about having to buy NCAA football 09 in the small print.

The coupon is on high grade glossy card stock, so no one who knows what is supposed to look like and feel like will be fooled by a home printed one.

I don' t think anyone is trying to fool anyone. People just don't want to go through the motions to reserve it and then cancel the reservation. I know at least one of my GS's will understand and most likely just give me a card. Also, if the coupon can be entered manually (as Kunai stated) then a copy could work just fine if they are not dicks about it.

bummer, I cleaned out most of the games from BBV already, was hoping to find 2 trade in for the bonus 15 find another 2 and trade in for more. But since it's on a 1 transaction, there's no way around it? :roll:
