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.

$21.99 for 1 Game

http://www.gamerush....es_gamepass.php click this link to find out about gamepass at Gamerush.

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).

The new deal for $10 off a $49.99 game worked for me on Kameo yesterday, so YMMV.

I will add that to the OP but I guess your right because depending on which GR you go to you may be able to get them to do this for you.

Because it actually states on the sign that this deal excludes Xbox 360 games but you never know which employee will let you get away with this so this is a definate YMMV.

Ahhh...I never saw the sign, I just asked if I could use it on the $49.99 Xbox 360 games and she told me yes.

Yep it actually states in the small print in bold letters that Xbox 360 games are excluded from the deal if you ever see those little signs that state New Games are $39.99. The reason I know this is because I went and got GTA:LCS for PSP with this deal on Friday and saw these signs all over the racks with the New Games on them.

So... I went to GameRush today and saw that they had lowered their used price on Dead To Rights II to $14.99. So I went to the counter and asked what the trade-in value for the game was....

The new trade-in price for Dead To Rights II (Xbox) is $24!!!

It only gets $20 at regular Blockbusters though.

So they are selling Dead To Rights II for $11.25 after 25% off and giving $24 for it in store credit. I just can't figure out why Blockbuster is approaching bankruptcy.

The answer is No. Corporate ended it so they don't have to honor it because I found this out when I went in on Saturday. They will mainly state that the site isn't updated but on a periodic basis so they don't have to honor the online promotion.

I guess it's one way of getting people to come into GameRush as opposed to EB/Gamestop. Then again, I can't find any business logic to applying a "loss-leader" type strategy when the company clearly can't afford to do so. Ah, well let's all enjoy it while it lasts. :)

Still no luck on the regular PDZ copies, but I saw a used Madden for the 360. It worked with the 25% off, but I didn't get it since $41 is still too much.

It should work the 25% is on all Pre-owned games but the only thing that has a restriction is the $49.99 for $39.99 deal.

Wow, used 360 games...I better check mine soon (maybe tomorrow if they ever get my Perfect Dark Zero in)

I can't believe D2R2 is still getting that much. They only gave me $15 for Madden 06 when it sells for $45 used....go figure.

The reason that Gamerush is selling D2R2 for $14.99 and offering $24 in trade credit for it is simple. Price drops go into effect on Sunday. 99% of trade value changes go into effect on Tuesday. Tomorrow the trade value will drop to about $6.

But it's kind of odd, that they would increase the trade-in price for it from $20 to $24. I agree though, I would expect this one to drop tomorrow, so I'm getting rid of my last two copies tonight.

What the hell is the deal with Gamerush not getting any copies of PDZ in yet? I am going to go down there later in the week and pick up my copies of Kameo and (hopefully) PDZ. If they don't have it yet, I am going to insist they either credit my account the $50, or let me preorder/buy another game instead.

Well, no Perfect Dark Zero yet for me...they did have the LE someone returned, but I did not want to use $10 in credit. I'll check another store to see if they have any sale copies....if so, I'll buy it there and switch the other one.

I'm also curious if they have any new360 games in the system.

So, what do these trade for:
Blitz:The League
Doom 3:LE
Timesplitter:FP
MTV vs ATV
Midway Arcade
MVP Baseball 05

No sign of Guitar Hero yet. My guess is they aren't getting it. Anyone heard anything different? FYI the GR near me finally received the Mario Party Gamecube bundle in. About 4 weeks after everyone else...

Additionally the store manager told me the DS ex rental games would be on sale last friday. When I stopped by Friday morning he told me district decided to have them transfered out of the store. Not sure where they went. Anyone know anything about this. He was guessing they might have ended up at a sister chain like Rhino...

I am glad to know that XBOX 360 games work with used games. I'll be checking in with my GR often to see if they get in used copies of condemned and/or kameo. I can get both for about $80 after tax. GREAT DEAL! Especially considering it would of cost over $120 after tax if I just bought them new.

I have Kameo sitting downstairs, new and unopened, but I want to include that with my EBAY auction. *Praying I can get at least $800 w/kameo*

Hi everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. I thought I'd use this thread instead of clogging up the forums with a new one.

I am a part-time manager at a Blockbuster in Wisconsin (non-gamerush). Hopefully, I'll be able to help keep everyone up to date on what goes on with sales and promotions.

I'd be willing to answer any questions that anyone has as well. Just send me a PM!

I love the site...although I think I've found myself spending more money on games because of it! :roll:

Welcome to the forums. I've spent more money because of these forums as well, but that is just because of the great deals that people have posted. These forums are great.

Be careful what you post. We've had at least one Blockbuster employee get fired for posting information about deals on this site.
