Couldn't you get your money back ($90) if you traded in Wii Fit with 4 other games? That's a pretty good deal to me.


You could ebay it, and get more than you paid for it.

I hate this type of promo, it can't hold a candle to the trade 2 for an extra $10 deal.

Are you insane? This promo has la lot more potential than the last.

Any game having a TIV of $13 or more makes $5.20 extra already. SS:BB gets you an extra $12! This promo also works with last gen too. I like this promo just as much, if not more, than the $10 one.

This promo bought me my 360 last year. It was thanks to those free Tropicana games, Wii games having such high TIV, and liquidating other extras. I don't really have anything to trade in that'll make this worth it though. I'm tapped out from the $10 bonus promo.

Seriously. I'm selling my Wii Fit on Craigslist. Easiest $150 ever.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Traded in a whole bunch of games (55 total) on Thursday, mostly licensed titles. Anything with a TIV less than $3 I was too lazy to type up, sorry! Just think of more licensed junk and you'll get an idea of what else I traded in. Overall I lost some money in the process, but it was quite funny getting $0.25 for some games. :rofl:

For the OP, Call Of Duty 4 (DS) has a base trade-in value of $6. It got $8.40 after edge & the 30%. Everything else I traded in is already listed.

I'm sure most people already know this, but I figure I should also mention that I can confirm that the bonus doesn't apply to accessories. I traded in a memory card along with my six games and the 30% bonus didn't apply. Most people probably assumed that, but I figured I'd throw it out there in case anyone was wondering.

Actually, you can only compare the 30% to the $5 promo as the "extra 10%" got applied in both cases.

You need a TIV of $16.67 to break even.

Where this deal excels though is when you have a high price game. I group a high price game with a bunch of cheap crap ineligible for the old trade in promo and I've made out well.

I believe HS got a 24$ TIV on Monday from BB, but I may have traded it in on Sunday. I went there because it was only like 12$ or 15$ from GS.

Quick question;

I was in my local GS tonight to trade 2 clearance PS3 games (Tiger Woods 07 TIV $8.00 base and MLB 07 TIV $5.00 Base). I used my trusty $15 bonus coupon which never gave me any problems and the assistant manager says to me - this is the last time I am doing this coupon for you OK?

Fair enough, I have been served very well indeed by it BUT I had traded at another GS on the other side of town at lunchtime and used it there too (360 Shrek 3 $5.00 Base and Moto GP 07 $$6.00 Base).

Now, can they see my trades that day in the second shop from the first (via my Edge?). Do they have a history screen which comes up when you swipe the card? Hmm... I was getting a bit adventurous with the 2 GS that will take my coupons. I am not pissed about it at all - it was a great run (like the Target coupon before it - god rest it's soul). Just curious as to why a previously very friendly manager was a little frosty towards me.

Anyone else have anything like this? Apart from the guys who have reported rabid stalker GS Managers who threaten them with the Corporate FBI Fuck'ers.

I am laying off it now anyway (time to use the 3 50% flyers one of the cool guys in the store gave me last week). Manhunt 2 here you go.......

Thanks to everyone for contributing - this has been more fun than the Target run and I hope we get another perfect storm in the fall.......

Cheers

G

I believe they can look at your trade history, but not how much you got for the games. Just the name of the games and such. I suggest you stop using the $15 coupon. I'm pretty sure the DM's have gotten on all Gamestop manager's asses about this $15 coupon fiasco.

Lucky you that you have a 50% coupon ;). Wish I had one... 40%... WEAK.
