I was hoping to pick up some semi-recent DS games (Ninja Gaiden DS, Professor Layton) but they're still pretty high.

But I'm sure I'll be able to make some use from this! Thanks for posting, OP!

good call.

One of the best DS games IMO.

there's a copy of FFIV at my local gamestop used. Thinking of picking it up for that price..

I'm awesome. I picked up Wii Fit for 57+tax (no big box for the Wii board, unfortunately, but it was all mint and complete otherwise.)
For those wondering, this coupon also didn't work early. Although, he manually discounted my games. Also got Link's Crossbow Training and Apollo Justice. So, I can leave for Vegas now with peace of mind.

Aww, when they manually edited what I was paying, they took 10% off from my Edge card after the 25% off discount. Sucks. I wonder if I can take in the receipt and get it refunded.

I'd be interested to know if this worked on Gameboy and Gameboy color games as well. I know they are usually b2g1, but this is better because they don't have to be the same price to save only 33%. It might work for old gameboy games but they just don't want to advertise that right on the cuopon. If anyone tries it, please let me know.

Do I need to bring the items with me, though? I'm out of town this weekend. I'm gonna take my receipt and see if they can do it.

not sure, but at the GS I'm friendly with, I brought in fable to return/rebuy with that 25% xbox coupon way back, and he didn't scan the game or anything, he just said. "I dont need that." But not sure if it will work for you, since I'm friends with the guy. But if your going to rebuy them and tell them what happened, they'd have to be big douchebags not to do it for you.

Here's a few you can buy from GS and trade back to GS for a profit using this coupon, edge card, & the current trade-in bonus when trading 4 or more.

:wii:

Mario Kart Wii (game only) $25.99 -> $35
Super Smash Bros Brawl $29.24 -> $37.80
Boom Blox $29.24 -> $35.00


:ds:

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness $19.49 -> $28.00
Tetris DS $22.74 -> $28.00
Professor Layton $17.54 -> $21.00
Lego Indiana Jones $16.24 -> $21.00
Final Fantasy Tactics A2 $22.74 -> $25.20

I know there are a lot more than this too. I'm not suggesting this is morally correct to do, but just that it is possible with all the current promos. If you try this though, please use common sense and don't trade them back to the same store you bought them at.

Ideally, if you do this, you would use 2 separate Edge cards.

Do this at your own risk. I'm pretty sure that Gamestop computers track purchases and trade-ins across all stores (unlike Blockbuster where they can only view trade-ins from that particular store) and it could become painfully obvious what you're doing.

In reference to the 50% off used titles part of this ad does anyone have a list of what those titles would be? I guess I just need to hit up an EB and see.

I really want to pick up:
uncharted
marvel v capcom
