I'd like to encourage you guys to submit your GameStop trade-in values to our database directly. You can access it from the main navigation bar under Retailers -> GameStop or here: http://www.cheapassg...w&retailerid=13

FAQ
Can I trade-in sealed games?
No. You might come across the rare GameStop that would let you do it, but they are going to open them anyway.

Can I stack two different trade-in promos?
No. The only thing that will stack with trade-ins is your EDGE card.

Does the EDGE Card give me a bonus on hardware trade-ins?
No. You will only get the bonus for games and accessories.

Do trade-ins have to have their original case, insert and manual?
No, however it will be YMMV on if they charge you a refurbish fee for them in that condition. Most GameStops wont charge a fee but there are some that charge for incomplete games.

Will they accept my game if it is really beat up?
YMMV. It really all depends upon the employee you get. Some will charge refurbish fees, some wont, some wont accept the game and others just take them without a second glance.

I have a Collector's/Limited/Special edition of a game, do I have to trade-in all of the extras?
No, but there are a handful of games that their variations have separate listings at GameStop: Madden 09 Anniversary Edition, Battlefield: Bad Company Gold Edition, and a few others.

Can I trade in multiple copies of the same game?
YMMV. The official policy is no, but there are some GameStops that overlook that rule.

What all do I have to trade in for a console trade-in?
Xbox 360: Console Unit, power brick, A/V Cables, Controller (wired/wireless)
Wii: Consule Unit, Power Cable, A/V Cables, Wiimote, Nunchuck, Sensor Bar
Playstation 3: Consule Unit, Power Cable, A/V Cable, Controller, USB Cable (need confirmation)

I used a Power Trade promo for a pre-order, can I cancel that pre-order and get the credit or move it to another game I want?
Yes on both accounts. However, if you do a bunch of the power trades and just straight drop the pre-order you could create some ill-will between yourself and the employees you cancel on.

I just tried to use a promo that has a select list of games eligible, but they say my game isn't eligible anymore, what gives?
Basically they have the right to change the eligible games at any time. They tend to update these frequently so as to lock out any easy/cheap games. It's best to check the eligible list the day of your trade.

These trade-in values are really low!
While that may be true, if you combine the games with the right promotion they can work to your advantage. There are knowledgeable people in this thread that are normally willing to help.

If I pay for an item using all credit on my card, do I have to pay sales tax?
This varies depending upon the state you live in.


First post contains promo information and the FAQ. Second post has the 360/Wii/PS3 values. Third post has the PS2/GC values. Fourth post has PSP/DS values. This might get changed around, but needed room for expansion with hitting the character limit constantly in 2 split posts.

*DISCLAIMER* These prices and dates are supplied by the CAG community, and as such there aren't always regular updates on every title. The dates at the edge of each game give an idea of when it last received that amount. If the quote is older than 3 days, the likelihood is that the value went down. Not always the case but something to keep in mind. If there is no date by the game, it means it hasn't been traded in since io originally started the thread. These values are always just a way to give an idea of what to expect, not actual returns. There is no guarantee involved that these prices are 100% accurate.

I do what I can to help out the CAG Community. I'm really not sure if I like splitting out across 4 posts like this, but I had to expand somewhat. I might move the DS/PSP in with the 360/Wii/PS3 lists and put the GBA with PS2/GC. That would bug me though. Don't know, open to suggestions for the arrangement and for more items to add to the FAQ. The good thing about this though is that I wont have to redo the thread for a good long while now.

The four post idea is a very good one, since it won't have one mega-sized OP in the thread, so it'll be easier to edit and keep up the OP and the trade-in values.

Good idea on making a new thread, the other one was getting a bit on the big side.

And as always, thank you for all the work you do with the TIV's.

I don't know why, but I always get paranoid when I see that a mod has posted in a thread I've started. Never ran afoul of any mods, but that instant paranoia sets in.

Thread related, and take this as pure rumor everyone. I was at a GameStop getting some Microsoft points and they mentioned that they THOUGHT the next promo was going to be tiered trade. Now this by no means a confirmation of any sort. Just figured I would pass that along. It does seem a bit odd to switch that promo in the middle of the month, I expected the current one to go on through until the first week of October. Take this info with a grain of salt.

Sounds like I can get plenty for trading my Wii in towards a PS3. More than half the price of a Slim when all the remotes and games i have are added. Even more towards it if i go for one of their models they have in the store that still has backwards compatibility.

Totally off topic, but damn I remember that game in your profile pic..... I remember getting stuck in the most simple place ever for an hour just because the screen wouldn't scroll properly...... I hated that game just for that.

But besides that I think I really enjoyed that game 15 years ago.

The console, a controller (any kind/brand), power brick, and cables. Basically, everything that comes with the system and is a necessity to use it. So, you don't have to trade in any hard drives or memory units.
