Hey CAG'ers

I just posted this in the Gamestop trade value thread but I know some people dont venture in there.

I just got an email from GS that talked about a Trade 2 promotion.

Basically Trade 2 games off the selected list and get a new release for $9.99

Not the best deal in the world but its about $50 credit for 2 games and you could probably return the game if you dont want one off the list?

Gamestop Trade 2 promo

Trade list includes
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Pokemon SoulSilver
BioShock Infinite
Pokemon HeartGold - Game Only
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Kirby's Return to Dreamland
Mario Party 9
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Tales of Graces f
Kirby's Return to Dreamland
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Xenoblade Chronicles GameStop Exclusive
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
Tales of Graces f
One Piece Unlimited Adventure
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Metroid Prime Trilogy
New Super Mario Bros. Wii

New releases that you can get for 9.99 include
Defiance
Bioshock Infinite
MLB 13 the show
MLB 2k13

and a bunch of games that have been cheaper elsewhere

I doubt that they'll reprint Xenoblade if they're willing to give a large amount of credit for it alone and they include it in these bizarre promotions to lure some sucker into handing it back.

Well here's hoping more people fall for this gimmick and trade in more copies of Xenoblade.

Edit: ^yeah I initially misread the list lol.

And your right, some suckers will go trade it in towards getting a $10 game.
I will be on the lookout as well. With a birthday coupon I might pick up a used copy and keep mine sealed.

I was thinking about Unloading Kirby Return to dreamland and Luigis Mansion for MLB 13 the show.
but I think Ill keep them and get MLB 13/Army of 2 at TRU for $70

Lmao at people trading in Metroid Prime Trilogy or Xenoblade. I think it's hilarious every time I get an email from GS titled "your games are worth $xx.xx" and tells me I can get a whopping $30 for rare or new games.

Someone actually traded a Metroid Prime Trilogy recently at a store about 20 minutes from me. I saw it online and I called to see about getting it held until I got there but they told me it was already sold. One of the employees probably set it aside for themselves.

Thats cool though. I didnt really need to drive 20 mins and spend $70 on it or however much the used copy is.

Or you can sell Xenoblade online and buy two brand new games right off the shelf...

No, that would be stupid. You'd have to trade 2 copies of it and pay $9.99 to get a new copy.

Someone should remind me to go after the kids leave school. Maybe I can get some good deals. Some kid was trading a Pokemon Black Version 2 but I wasn't paying attention.

For whatever reason, GS listed a few games twice. Either way, it looks like they're trying to get a hold of either newer and somewhat recent titles, as well as out of print ones that people are looking for. It becomes obvious when the list includes OoP Wii games such as Metroid Prime Trilogy, Xenoblade and One Piece: Unlimited Adventure, with other in demand titles like Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3.

The only thing that could make this better is if you could get a PUR coupon for say 50k points instead of paying 9.99 for the new game.

Rhino Video Games (one of the gamestop monopolizing take over companies from a few years ago) used to have a good promotion similar to this where you trade in any 2 current generation games they sell for $24.99 or higher and get any new game for free.

So trade in two games they can sell for 80-120 and get a "select" new game for $10...not even free? Wow! More deals like this please!

But you guys are disregarding the fact that people may not want these games anymore. While they have value to gamestop which exceeds the value the trader will receive, the trader may not consider them to have any value, so they still view it as a positive.

They could... you know... trade it toward a nice copy of a coaster, MAG, and get enough credit to just get the new game without paying $9.99.
