I asked a clerk if a Madden reservation was necessary to get the 40% and he said that it was (no surprise). However, he did say that I could put five on madden and keep the rest on the edge card.

Too bad my local GS is only giving $25 credit for MGS4. I figured it'd be worth $30 at least. I still might jump on this though.

$15. I'd Craiglist if I were you. Gets $40 easy, and far more if you're willing to wait (I wasn't).

In regards to this thread, I just went up an asked for a return - they gave it back to me on a GC instead of my Edge card. *shrug* Just means I gotta carry 2 cards around, lol.

Does anyone know the specifics of how GS gives their stores trade in incentives?

I know that it makes a store look better depending on how many preorders they get, but are there other things as well? For instance, if I preorder and don't pick my game up, does my local store get "bad ratings" for that? What if I preorder, pickup, and return the game?

Funny thing happened today. I went to cancel my preorder for Madden 09 and buy some used games with the credit. Turns out that the manager was able to see what I had traded in and informed me that if he canceled my preorder, he would HAVE TO TAKE OFF THE ADDITIONAL 40% TRADE IN CREDIT that I received. What a bunch of bs i think. I'll try again after Madden comes out I guess. :bomb:

Gamestop is now getting smarter about trade in especially fake ones like yours. Good luck getting all your credit back after madden comes out. :applause:

It's not that hard. Just pick up your madden preorder, and return it a day or two later (you have 30 days to return an unopened product). Canceling preorders pisses off gs people.

I remember seeing on the board that Wii Fit (with balance board) is $60 TIV. However your best bet would probably be to resell on ebay. with coupon + Edge you'd get $90 for it at eb but you could probably fetch $110 for it easy on ebay.

QFT!

Just say you no longer want it. Sure, you could make up a fake story like your GF bought you the collectors edition or some other such lame nonsense. But really, you can just return it.

It's one more trip to the store, sure. But if you want to make things work for you, you have to do a *little* work yourself.:bouncy:

Thanks, I'd rather not deal with ebay fees and shipping the thing. I tried selling it here with no avail, so if I can get close to what I paid for it, I'd be golden.
Ok then, knuckle up.

If you trade in more than what Madden is worth, will they just give the rest to you as store credit?

i've always had a question about preorders. if we preorder something, we have to put 5 dollars down for it at gs. but if we cancel, do we get the 5 dollars back?

Sorry to ask so many questions (last one, I promise), but will the leftover credit still be 40% extra TIV, or will it just simply be what their normal trade in values are for the games. Because if they aren't all 40% extra, I'm not doing this...

So...let me get this straight. Your allowed to CANCEL in order to get all the credit put on the resevation onto the edge card?

Okay, with 150~ new users each day at CAG, we're getting a lot of folks with questions. Some have been answered, some points still haven't been touched.

Here's the deal. You go into your GameStop and trade in with this coupon BreadBaker 9000, LawnMower Racers and Rescue the Princess 17. You give the clerk the coupon and say you want to pre-order Madden 09 with $5 down. With the coupon bump, you get a total of $73 in credit, minus the $5 pre-order, you have $68 in credit remaining. You ask for them to put it on a store-credit card.

If you *don't* want Madden 09, in a couple days, you can go back and ask to cancel your pre-order. If you want the credit back, the $5 will go on the card (or if you've spent all your credit, it will go on a new card) OR if there's a game you legitimately want to pre-order, you can put that $5 to pre-order that game.

I suggest this option, because the kids working at GS have to have so many pre-orders a day/week and when you cancel, that clerk is deducted one pre-order for that day/week. If you cancel one pre-order and just swap the $5 towards the pre-order of another game, that goes back towards their count. I love everyone in my local store, so I try not to do anything that works against them.

That's exactly what I'm doing Gwen.

I traded in 100.00 worth of stuff, put 63 on Too Human, and the rest on Madden.

Next week I'll switch all the Madden money to Fallout.

Since I've posted this in the past threads...

Any speculation on this weeks coupon?

Hopefully some % off some system's used games.

Maybe DS or Wii. Heck, I would be happy with a Gamecube coupon!
