I've received a couple pm's from people wanting to contribute prices but don't want to get harassed about selling to someone or getting more at place x. If this is the case for anyone, you can pm me any values and I'll update them in the list and database.

Also, the CAG Trade-In Value Tracker is now live and accessible from the main navigation.



Instructions on finding games in the database and inputting the values from different sections can be found in my blog post here: http://www.cheapassg...log.php?b=14143. I would put the entire post in the thread but this is already kind of a large post.

*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.

Glad I dropped Zelda on Weds before the $2 drop. Nope, no refurb fees from my trades this week. I only had one that was missing a manual and a couple that had light scratches, mainly Wii games. Maybe they got a memo to take closer look at stuff and charge the refurb fees?

The requested format is always base TIV unless you get a noob posting. Comes up very infrequently. It might be noted in the OP.

Yeah those were all base but it looks like a couple of those dropped overnight based on that other guy's post. Anyway I saw this on the board the other day so it looks like it went up.

12/09/2010

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn $20

Also here is a little something to keep a look out for if any of you are looking for good deals on games in their ad starting today.

When I was in late last night, they had put out in a bin some of the newsed (aka gutted) games that are on special this week for $10-30 off but also mixed in a few used copies of those games with the same doller amount off of the used price. Since MW2 for PS3 is $20 off new price in the ad they took $20 off the used price of $29.99 so I got it for $10, but it gets better. Since it was used, it qualified for the B2G1 that started yesterday for Pro Rewards members. I paried it up with COD: WOW for PS3 (also an ad item) and COD 4 for 360.

All told I bought the following games for only $18 total ($6 each average)

COD: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3)
COD: World at War (PS3)
COD4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360)

I figure it was probably either disc/case condition or that local store wont take it anymore. If they are still taking Madden 07s, they'll still take WWE games that old as well. Some districts do put in random items like that.

It's probably something that the employees at the stores in that district were told to do. That's how at least one of the stores by me is and they follow their DM's orders to the letter, but my closest store lets me get away with murder as long as I keep throwing them the occasional pre-order for some game that I'll pick up and then return at one of the strict stores.:D;)
