GameStop Ad 12/26-12/29: http://www.gamestop....lfsi_122612.pdf

6 pages of meh, but some highlights from the last 2 pages:

  • B2G1 on any Pre-owned Wii or DS games p.7
  • Double In-Store Credit when you trade any system p.8
  • 50% Extra In-Store Credit for every game you trade p.8


I know this is usually litepink's thing (props), but I'm not about type out the whole ad when the .pdf is readily available. I wikified the thread if litepink or others would like to add other items of special interest.

Well, crap. Just traded my 3DS and PSP 3k in during their 50% offer. Figured double credit wouldn't happen since it said offer good until Jan 6. For those wondering, I got 50 base for 3DS and 25 for PSP.

There are people here who have said they had luck going to Gamestop and trying to get them to honor the double value on systems from a prior trade-in.

Probably going to be the best time to get rid of Dishonored since the TIV took a little bit of a dive at bestbuy because of the 100% (base $10+bonus $20 last week with 50% it was ~$23.50.) Thanks for the heads up OP.

Little confused by the writing. Double in store credit on systems...are you saying like 100% extra credit? Like if the system is worth 50 bucks you get 100 bucks? Probably stupid question, just the phrase is confusing me.

Yes. Now the question is "How much will TIVs tank on Wednesday?"

I'm debating whether or not to trade in my 4GB 360 Slim since I picked up that R2D2 console last week. I would sell it on Craigslist, but I don't want to deal with idiots.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Yes, that's correct.

Wanted to buy Rage, to go with the new dlc that came out this week, and getting two other games wouldn't hurt.

I sold my 3DS on Amazon for $130 when the GS base was $50. Even double credit doesn't come close. It was back when Best Buy had $160 3DSXL's, $30 trade-up :)

If I were to trade my Fat 360 for Steam Wallet Cards, would I get $65 + $65 (100%) + $19.50 (30%) = $149.50?

Random question. I'm going to Canada for a few days and was wondering if they will have the same ads advertise? Does best buy in Canada share the same trade in value?
My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

Check the Canada Threads, because sometimes GS canada has better deals.

The pdf is not loading for me.

Is it b2g1 on just normal DS games? I was hoping to nab a few 3DS games and didn't know if it applied to those as well.
