I'm liking the promotions Amazon is doing with these trade-ins. Even though it won't put GS out of business, they can put a dent in it if it does catch on.

Not bad considering you could trade in 4 dumpy sports games that are worth > 1$

this is pretty sweet. if you could find 4 crappy games to trade in. The only catch is they have to be worth $10 or more according to amazon's trade in.

Shipment has to be $10 or more...don't think the individual games do (probably to cover the free shipping)...

They're just trying to bulk up their inventory fast, is my guess.

So you get an Amazon gift card credit for the 4 games and a bonus $20 off?

So this means that some of these games will end up being free.

For example: MLB 2K9 would be free if you trade in 4 games since they take off 20 bucks.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

Kind of lame they'd limit the selection but the promotion itself isn't bad, especially when they pay the shipping. I didn't know they did that.

Just thought of a damned good way to exploit this one.

Buy cheap games at places like K-Mart for $5 each...Trade them in for the same amount.

Bingo, 20 bucks off of a new game.

For instance, I could buy 4 copies of The Godfather for $20 bucks, ship them in for $30 trade-in credit...Then with the 20 dollars off of a new game, I'd get Resident Evil 5 for $23...Not bad if you think about it :)


I may actually do this...I'll go for a New copy of the Limited Edition Halo Wars :)
Hell, the map pack alone's going to be worth 10 bucks in a couple weeks.

"Qualifying customers will be emailed their coupon code within 30 days after the promotion period has ended." I believe that means that we'll only receive the coupon code sometime in April, which kinda sucks...

i dont think that is that good of a deal really...

Cost 20 you get 50 in credit and that IS if they would allow you to trade 4 of the same game
WOOOO I STINK

Yeah this deal seems ok on the face of it, but then you start checking the TIV of games and find there's a load they don't accept.

I'll do it if I can get 4 games that they'll take.

Hmmm. Hehe they take used Rock Band track pack disks I see........... That way I don't have to feel bad about ebaying them sans code.

Well, that's going to vary big time. The same disclaimer was on their 10% off games thing if you traded in before something like Mar 20th, and I ended up getting mine the day after they received my shipment. It seems to just be an umbrella thing in case something happens and they lose your order.

On topic, definitely gonna bite on this. Grabbing HotD: Overkill for $27 or GTA: Chinatown for $10 is too good to pass up.

Not to bash this deal specifically, but Amazon refused two of my trade-ins claiming that the "disc was missing." I'm 100% positive that all games were complete when I sent them. They are planning on returning the two missing disc games and they better not be missing the game.

Maybe the disc dislodged during transit and slipped into the instruction manual, and they hadn't bothered to look there? Just a theory...

Hmm, they have Eye of Judgment listed for $8 trade-in value but it doesn't specify if the camera is required as part of the trade. Any chance somebody has traded this in to them and can verify that they accepted the game only?
