New and improved and with less thread crapping (hopefully).

Link to the old thread - http://www.cheapassg...ead.php?t=54806

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Current Trade-In Deals

Trade in 2 games, preorder any game for 29.99!! (July 19th - ??)

Restrictions and rules below:

Alright, I read the map today and here's some stuff on the new deal:

- As has been said, it starts on July 19th. I cannot remember offhand the date that it ends.

- Trade any 2 games, get any preorder for $29.99. I forgot to check if XBox 360 games are included in the deal, but as most people have already stated, I highly doubt it.

- The two games that are traded in for the deal must retail for at least $7.99 each (preowned price).

- The credit can still be applied towards the $29.99.

Game Pass

Rent unlimited games for a month. You can have one game (or 2 depending on the pass) out at a time and can return it whenever you want and switch it out as many times as you want.

1 out = $14.99 the first month....$19.99 thereafter

2 out = $24.99 the first month...$29.99 thereafter

You must have a credit card/check card to signup. Checkcard must be visa, mc, amex, dc, or diners club. You can also do it by getting a prepaid visa, mc, dc or amex card with at least $1 on it so it will clear the authorization and just pay for it each month (very tedious though). You can cancel at any time. Good on any rental game (gamecube, psp, nds, gba, xbox, ps2).



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


$0.99 Retro Games

All Dreamcast, Snes, Genesis, and Nes games are $0.99. Games available depend on which store you go to. Games may not be marked as $0.99, but they will ring up that price. Trade in value of all games on these systems is now $0.25.

If you have nothing worthwhile to post in the thread, don't post in it.

Am I clear on this point, or do I need to be a little more direct on it?

Yeah, what's up with TG? "Jail time" for using the trade 3 get a PO for $5? Yeah, uh, OK...

Anyway, I had a question about those $.99 Wavebird packs. I bought two, and charged them overnight. One was a bit touchy with the adapter and I had to readjust it several times to get the light to come on. When I put them into the Wavebirds though and turn them on the WB light does not come on - unless I then plug in the AC adapter. I've already thrown out the instructions - you didn't have to charge them IN the wavebird, did you? Or did I just get 2 bad ones - seems unlikely...

My GR got PS2 Psychonauts in today - feels good to finally pick up a preorder! Of course, I should feel VERY VERY BAD according to Tequilla Gundam because I heartlessly and with malicious intent got that preorder using 2 cheap trade-ins (plus $30) :D. And I'm certain to be sent to Gitmo because the GR employee did the double-dip on the $5 bonus deal as well during that preorder!

Updated the OP with this, as well as cleaned it up a little bit now that I've had the time.

I got a few and had issues as well -- instructions did say to charge 24 hours initially, but I only had 1 out of 3 charge properly. Haven't had time to try to figure out what's going on with the others.

I'm sorry I had to close the old thread the way I did, though a certain CAG we can all mention decided to ruin it for everyone. Seemed like the most direct way to prevent the up-and-coming flame war.

It was getting big enough that it was an OK time to start up a new one.

What's your problem?

Jealous because you didn't think of this? I never remember Gamerush or Blockbuster telling me I couldn't trade in 2004 sports games, and I never remember them trying to stop me from doing it.

In fact, the employee ENCOURAGED IT, and told me I could do two of the SAME TITLE on a Trade 3. OMG maybe that Gamerush employee should go to jail! It's funny you're not lashing out against flipping, but against Blockbuster's own rules that they set forward for this promotion.

You just seem like a jealous, angry person who think he's "funny" by lashing out in a thread in which he's been asked to stop twice already.

Nice catch, and a great way to own the troll.
Trying to get this back on topic, There's a 2 games I want to get for the buy 2 get one free, Pro Fishing Challenge and Panzer Dragoon Orta. Hopefully I can find Freedom Fighters or X-Men Legends to complete the deal.

i normally don't lash out at anyone, but your posts are insanely idiotic. you're casting blame on everyone for doing a deal that GR itself promoted. essentially, it seems like you would like us all to ensure that GR gets decent games from us in trade since poor innocent GR didn't think of creating an exclusion list. your arrogance is astounding and just plain unbelievable. by any chance, are you the exec that got replaced at GR?
i have absolutely no moral qualms about taking part in the trade 3 get 1 PO free. it was a fantastic deal for many, many people on this site. nobody should feel guilty about taking advantage of the deal. i would love to see this deal return (unlikely i know) or a similar deal emerge.

Hmm, I had no idea. My GR has about eight of the CD-R packs. I think I will have to go pick them up tommorow. I was almost out of CD-Rs anyways. Thanks!

It's only new games, and it only applies to the ones on the list.

I think the sale is ending very soon, as well.

Cmon, it even says (New Only) right next to it :p

Well, went to pick up my Conker for Xbox (using the trade 2 games get new/pre-order game for $29.99 I did way back in March) at 11pm last night.

When I got there, to my surprise they still have the tiny circular button that advertises the trade 2 get new/pre-order game for $29.99 on the shelves. So I asked the lady there if the deal is still on, and she told me no. Naturally I asked why the heck the advertisements for the deal are still on the shelves, then she told me she doesn't work at the videogame department, but she heard that the deal is going to return for the July 4th weekend.

She's probably just making some BS to stop me from questioning her, but she said it in a straight face without any hesitation. I guess we will all find out in 10 days.

I thought I remembered him from before, but posts on the GR thread tend to go by fast - this was right in the middle of the great "oh my god can they really take away all your credit" scare of May 2005. Shrike has already exposed TG's posts detailing his own scamming (or pretending to anyway, in light of these posts). I think these help explain where TG is coming from (OK, not really):


May 26th:

I work at Gamerush....Manager says they are doing a National Bulletin to all GRs to prevent trading cheap worthless games to take advantage of deals..More customers are starting to get banned who do this..There is your warning. Your account will be terminated and your value card money lost.


May 28th:

My manager informed me that the 3 for 5 is officially over..Nationwide, they are sending out warnings..I had to ban 4 flippers/scammers today Cory. I feel your plan bro..

Silly kids trying to trade in 3 Powerdromes/BG&E = BANNINATED at my store


So either:

1) He works at a GR as he claims and is really mad at those of us who have used the deals, even when done perfectly legitimately (no flipping).

2) He was banned from GR and pretended to work there for these earlier posts (since he doesn't mention it any more) and is just trying to scare/mess with everyone here.

3) He is a TRUE Blockbuster shill (you're off the hook aaa :D) - though not being very professional or subtle about it.

I thought he was the one who mentioned the computers all being linked between stores and we all better look out - but apparently that was someone else around the same time.

BEWARE that GBASP charger you speak of is just a charging stand, you actually have to supply the ac adapter it just holds your system sorta upright while you charge. I got excited when i seen it till i looked at the back of the box.

I have to give my thanks to shipwreck for finding those two posts I posted up there about TG, so I have to give props to him for finding them. :applause: I was just going to use them when he spoke up again. ;)

I'd put my money, in order of believeability, on #1, then #3, and then #2. He's just being a huge jackass and trying to start trouble where there isn't any to be had. :roll:

TG certainly is spreading FUD, but I suspect it's about grabbing attention. Poor kids probably 38 living with mom. I bet he has to give nightly sponge baths to mommy.

It was "The Watcher", who mentioned the stores information can be consolidated. He did prove to be the GR DM Mark from SoCal. He was not happy that I outed him.
