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.

Good, the thread has been broken in. So I can say:

Arrgh... I thought I was about to score an extra $10 in Blockbuster credit:

Free $5 GiftCard
Offer ends 1/9/06. Offer valid at participating BLOCKBUSTER stores while supplies last. [highlight]Offer does not apply to BLOCKBUSTER GiftCards™ ("GiftCards") purchased with Value Cards or account credit from BLOCKBUSTER.[/highlight] GiftCards cannot be used to purchase GiftCards. GiftCards redeemable at participating BLOCKBUSTER stores. GiftCards are subject to complete terms and conditions found on GiftCard and/or packaging. Membership rules and certain restrictions apply for rentals at BLOCKBUSTER. $50 in GiftCards must be purchased in the same transaction to receive this offer. Free $5 GiftCard cannot be applied towards $50 GiftCard purchase. Offer does not apply to GiftCards purchased with ValueCards from BLOCKBUSTER or Account Credits.


Ah well. At least it also implies you can buy gift cards with value cards legally, so that's good. I'm guessing I'll still probably buy a $50 card at some point, if I continue to trade in for credit there.

Well I'm just about done with doing my pre-orders at Gamerush. I've been doing all my preorders with them for the past year or more. In the past they would get smaller titles (Bards Tale) later or not at all, but over the past few months it's happened more and more. Fast forward to today, and my Battlefield still hasn't come in for Xbox. Oh if I had a PS2 I could be playing it now, but none for Xbox. The real killer is I just called and there will be no Gamerush people (who might actually have a clue what they're doing) in today or tomarrow to talk to. The only thing I could get out of the Blockbuster employees is "Maybe it got pushed back. We don't really know when it might come in. Check in Friday or maybe next week." Awsome! I get to wait till "Maybe next week"for a game that everyone else got YESTERDAY! I guess I'll be taking my business back to Gamestop. They might not give the amount of credit or have the deals that Gamerush has, but at least they get their shit in on time. Vent Mode Off.

I've decided that the problem is likely that all the employees are too busy counting up their losses from the masses trading in Dead to Rights 2, so the poor delivery guys have been sitting outside the stores for days waiting for someone to sign.

Can you guys stop bitching about GR not getting in games. This thread is for video game deals, not Game Rush bitching.

You can post this is the FAQ if you want:

Gamerush gets there new release games in on WEDNESDAY, not Monday, not Tuesday, WEDNESDAY.

95% of the time when you ask a clueless Blockbuster or Gamerush CSR when a game comes out, they will quote you a FRIDAY, assume the game comes out the WEDNESDAY of that week.

Well for you to say something that bold i would think you were talking about an atlus game or something, but no you're talking about a widespread army shooter game that has commercial airing every hour on the hour about how it is such a great game and there will be a chance to win $250,000 dollars if you are the best with some type of online contest. Now does that sound like a game that GameRush will never get in.

Now as stated before this thread is for the deals that GameRush has to offer and other people post tips as to what games people should buy in order to maximize their credit for the least amount of money. Please don't post if your topic isn't relevant to these issues because you are just wasting space. If you are truly upset about the delivery times and speed of your games check your receipt for your pre-order there should be a regional office number at the top below the store number. Give them a call and let them know all your frustrations with their company, hopefully if all of you who are whining about the games GameRush didnt get in on time call (even though you forgot you saved at least $20 if not more on game) we can get are games in quicker

Today is wednesday. The game is not in. I don't see why it take so long for them to get games in when I could go to ANY other store that sells games and pick it up on release day.

I'll say this and then I'm done:
This thread is about Gamerush deals, and most of their deals revolve around preorders. The fact that the game I have preordered is a "big" game and not an obscure Atlus RPG is irrelevant.(Not a bash aginst Atlus) More and more smaller titles are past over for distribution by Gamerush, and it was only a matter of time before they start slipping on the larger titles as well. I just think for the people that come in here looking for great deals on preorders should know that ya, they might save a few bucks in the long run, but the fact is they might not get games on time or at all. And as a side note to billyknoxville, Gamerush get their games in whenever they are shipped, thats why they had Battlefield 2 for Ps2 on Tues and last week Had Stubbs for Xbox in Tues as well. Ok, i'm done. Sorry if I desecrated your Gamerush deals thread with preorder revelant information.

STILL NO FUCKIN BATTLEFIELD I'M PISSED! They told me it doesn't even come out till friday, they'll call when they get it in..... Toys R Us last night had shelves full of ALL the games that came out yesterday but a game store doesn't have them............ ARGH i'm sick of this damn store they get nothing in on time. I'm gonna go buy it from Wal-Mart and when GR finally gets it in just return that copy to WalMart.

A value card is just a place to store your Blockbuster credit, so the value card is tied to your Blockbuster account, whereas a gift card is just a generic card with credit on it.

Today (assuming they have gotten DDR Mario when I call), I will see if this crazy YMMV extra 25% trade credit is still going on in Cleveland, since it'll be the first time I've traded 3 games since that deal's end date. Would certainly be nice if it were, $55 is so much sweeter than $44.

Haha... it's good to know that I'm the only person who preordered Mario Mix at my GR. Since my cell phone is locked in my apartment with my keys and wallet, I didn't get their call:

"Hi, I preordered DDR Mario Mix, has that come in yet?"
"Is your last name botticus? Yeah, I called you."

Either he had a lucky guess, or it was an extremely short list.

So, at least they get some games in on time!

Bah... they changed the values on a Wednesday? Ah well... there goes $2.50 for my PS2 version. Hopefully Xeno 2 and Tron didn't drop much.

Guess I'll also stop by Blockbuster before going to GR... have them scan them first, and see if maybe their update schedule is also different than GRs.

And here I am so close to my DS. The man's trying to keep me handheldless.

Ahhhhh, Dead to Rights 2 (xbox) trade-in value has finally changed. It's now $20, instead of $27 so it still fetches a good value. It still sucks that because I waited a day, I lost $7. I don't know if they have changed the PS2 version, or if Blockbusters w/o a GR have changed their values.

Also my GR only has the PS2 versions of Battlefield and Spartan in, so I guess they are having some xbox version problems currently. Soul Calibur III was also in today.
