New thread and will try to update this post as best I can so we can keep track of everything Gamerush in the thread. Trade-in prices, pre-orders, and deals offered from Gamerush.

Current Trade-In Deals

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

Restrictions and rules below:

- 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.

Preorder Lists (Dates are subject to change and when those changes happen up date us in the thread and I will try my best to update here in OP so people won't have to read through the thread to find them)- Credit to io for supplying these lists.

I think the B2G1F is continuing still, isn't it? Or has that also been replaced by the 25% off? Maybe that's just my dumbest question of the week.

Buy 2 get 1 free on used games is over. It has been replaced by 25% off used games. Everything in the OP's post is correct and up to date. Maybe put the deals in bold so that people can immediately see what the current deals are.

Got it. As previously stated by many, 25% off will be better anyway... odds of me seeing three games I want at GR are very slim.

Thanks Shipwreck. I am trying to keep my eye out for when deals come up in the thread because I don't really shop at Gamerush often but I will try to keep everything clear in the OP. If all else like Shady mention earlier I will just have to keep up with io postings.

It has been answered already - but sorry, have no idea. I'm in DC now - no GR's here :D. Sorry to have failed you :D.

Perhaps the OP should hold off fixing the links. I'll just update and repost them in this thread, then he can link. Won't be till late tonight though. I AM actually working out here - then in the evening I'm making a Best Buy and TRU run :D. Then I'm working some more :(

I asked today if If they would let me trade two in and preorder a 360 game for 40 since the games are going to be 10 bucks more. Sadly they said no, it was worth a try anyways I guess. They guy told me to wait a couple weeks for a new trade in promotion so I guess I'll give it awhile before I trade in all my games for xbox 360 cash.

Was the trade-in and get an extra 25% suppose to end yesterday? I just got back from GR and they are still doing that deal and the 2 for 29.99 deal. Also Burnout did not come in today, he said to expect it tomorrow as usual.

Here's some trade in values before bonus:

Catwoman $1
Iron Phoenix $25
Pandora Tomorrow $6
F-zero $3

Yeah, it's true. Forza is now $18.75 used! :D I just got back from my local GameRush and picked up:

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GC) - $21.24 orig. price $26.99
Feel the Magic XY/XX (NDS) - $13.50 orig. price $16.99

That about does it for my credit at GameRush. I can't wait til Burnout: Revenge tomorrow though! :D Thanks again OP, and io and for all of the posters of GR deals.

Interesting. Too bad I am out of town - my GR is usually behind on the deals, which means they might still have the bonus going as well. But probably not by the time I get back.

Catwoman - I passed up a $0.99 copy of that at a Best Buy today because someone here posted the pathetic trade-in value - figured I'd leave it for some poor sap who might actually want the game :D. It is also POX at EB. Technically you shouldn't get the bonus or preorders off a $1 game, but that, as always, is YMMV (and that 25 cent bonus is key!). You didn't say if you got 2 preorders out of those 4 games - I've done it in the past with "disqualified" games. :D

Yes, they will take the game with the hole punched in the UPC but I don't know the trade-in value. I know from experience because I traded in a copy of Sly 2 with a hole punched in the UPC and they still took it.
