Might be worth checking this out. Maybe swap Bully and Eternal Sonata for Soulcalibur IV.

I was told that Viking and Blast Works are now excluded. Bad for me since I wanted to dump 2 BW. Not sure why only those titles as others have also dropped in price since the promo started. :roll:

I am sure you could get it to work on Too Human but you would have to go to another game stop and exchange it. There is no clear description of the trade ins on the receipt it just says bonus trade in and the credit. I picked Soul Caliber IV but I plan on exchanging it for the Force Unleashed or Infinite Undiscovery when that came out.

I liked this deal as I wanted to trade in Orange Box but it was only worth 9. So I bought Bully from target for 15 and it traded in for 20. Just make sure you get them to scan your edge card as it will add 10% based on the original trade in value before bonus.

Wait what? Ok so the list at the top (19.99 and 9.99) is comprised of the titles you can trade for and the rest of the list (starting at "Wii" and downwards) is what you can trade in correct? Wouldn't the deal be cancelled when you decide to change what game you want? And would another GS actually let you exchange the game for what you want? I find that slightly hard to believe....

crazyglitcher: The two games trade in for 40 in credit. On the second part of the receipt the ring in the game and deduct the credit and you pay the balance. This is like when you get bonus credit for a reserve. If you change your mind you still keep the credit. If for some strange reason it doesn't work I'm happy to keep it.

This is stupid, seriously.

Amazon has been screwing the pooch recently, seriously.

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

Anybody else know of any others that are now excluded? I'm going to trade in an RE4 that I have and go pick up Condemned 2, for $12 to pick up Madden, and return the Madden that I already bought from them to get my $60 back. I paid $60 originally, and doing it this way I will only pay $32, plus my RE4. Good deal.

First I would get them to give you a sealed copy.....say its for a birthday. Pay with cash (no paper trail by GS systems). Ask them for a gift receipt (I'm sure they can do that if asked), if not keep the original receipt. When M2 comes out, I would probably wait one or two days (if you are parnoid), go to another store with the game and receipt. If you have a gift receipt, that will make it even easier to pull it off. This would probably be your best chance.

edit: nevermind....I see you were able to pull it off already.

Fuck, that's what I bought tonight to trade with RE4. I'll give it a shot tomorrow morning, but this isn't looking good. Are there any $17.99 360 games that still work with this deal or did they make sure to exclude all of them?

honestly, as ymmv as it is, i think if complain about it enough theyll do it cause its on the list, its almost like a breech of contract, and most Gs or Eb employees dont care enough anyones, at least not here in jersey

I doubt there will be a problem here; they simply look at the flyer and manually adjust the trade-in value. The one store didn't seem like the type to stay on top of memos from corporate.

Posted 01 September 2008 - 04:48 PM

You guys were right. They just manually adjusted the trade in prices. I also got the extra 20 % trade in credit on the original $6 values on both RE4 and Condemned 2, because I bought Madden. They also gave me the extra 10% from my EDGE card for the original $6.

So, they gave me $23.20 for Condemned 2 (bought for $12), and another $23.20 for Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition (Was my game, but I was done with it). I picked up Madden for $14.71. I'm going to return the one I bought for $60, so I'm making out pretty good on this deal.

Yeah, they did close at 6.
