The Guitar Hero III bundle for 360 with Xplorer guitar trades in for a whopping $7 now. Does anyone have any games with good trade-in value?

Not a video game, but Best Buy has Seasons 1-6 of 24 for $27 total. I haven't calculated everything, but you should be able to get at least $60 after 45% bonus.

I got $12.00 for 24 season Special Edition at fye. Wherehouse.com said it was $15, I didn't like it much so I just took the few dollar loss.

most of the stores now have a paper up on the doors saying it wont be honored and it explains why they have removed the stickers with the coupon from the Season 1 Special Editions.

Side note, I traded in 96 dvd's and 1 360 game (Army of Two) and got $523 and some change. Got a PS3 and 4 used games for only 48.52 out of pocket.

I honestly, don't remember them. I threw away my credit slips after I used all of the credit left on the cards (had to make 2 trips and they said they couldn't put it on the same card). I was looking through my 360 collection and apparently got rid of Jericho too. Don't remember it but I do remember Army of Two getting me $36 in trade with this deal. I also remember they were surprised that a good portion of mine were hitting the 3 dollar mark without the bonuses. Granted, I was a little irritated after I was told about the backstage pass would have given an extra 10% on top of that. I don't have one, but I could have purchased one for 25 and made and extra 50 on the credit.

When I read that I would get an extra 25% over the cash price if I got store credit and then with the bag get another 20%, I assumed that it would stack like the edge card and coupons for GameStop. So when I was doing my math, it was way lower than what I got because I didn't realize they did the 25% and then 20% of that new number. It was really odd, but I'm not complaining. I've never taken part in this deal before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The local Coconuts does take older games, so I'm going to go through and see which ones are worth much.

oh wait...so it's not 45% bonus credit? it's 25% bonus credit, then 20% bonus credit on new number?

wait...wouldn't that mean you get MORE credit?

26.50 game * 1.25 = 33.13

33.13 * 1.20 = 39.75
~~~

26.50 game * 1.45 = 38.43

NICE...might have to trade some ish in then!

They're only paying $26.50 (before the bonuses) for MGS4? That's kind of weak.

Yeah, I assumed it was 45% total, but when I was doing the math for Army of Two (360), their base was $24. If it was just a straight 45%, that new total would be $34.80. My trade-in credit was $36, and the only way to get to that number would be to do the 25% on the base, and then the 20% on the new number. I could be wrong, but that's the ONLY way I could get to that number.

Same went with the Jurassic Park Adventure Pack. I thought I would only get $8.70, but I ended up getting a straight $9. Granted that isn't a huge difference, but over the course of 100 items or so, it adds up.

I still have Persona 3 (sealed with artbook. etc.)

I never got the chance to play it, and then I bought FES.

Secondspin is showing persona 3 at $9.00

Is it worth it just to unseal it, keep the extras and trade the disc and box?
Will they take it without the artbook?

That's exactly how it works. The base number is the cash trade in price. You get another 25% if you take credit, then the promo adds another 20% on top of the credit trade in value. So if you really do the math, you get an additional 50% of the cash trade in value if you take credit and apply the 20% promo.

kinda off topic, but I dont wanna make a thread just for this question:

but i bought Unreal tournament III (360) today and there was a mail in rebate attached to my receipt. I can get $10 back. On the receipt it says to mail the original UPC in order to get money back (no photocopies etc.). The price sticker that FYE puts on it games has a UPC (matches the one on the game box) as well. Can i just mail that in instead? Or do i HAVE to cut out the one from the box art?

thanks

I haven't done an FYE rebate in a looong time so YMMV. In the past, I was able to just pull that sticker off and send it in with the form and receipt and they'd honor it. I'm pretty sure others have done it recently but you may want to check other forums (inside and outside of CAG) to get some sort of consensus on what's ok now.
