Trade in two games from the list on this flyer, and get a new game from the list for $19.99 or $9.99

Gamestop is extending the Deal, posted by JohnLa101

Just a heads up, turns out they are extending this deal to 11/23, but with an updated list of eligible trades and the games you can get. Noteworthy mentions are Gears 2, LittleBigPlanet, Left 4 Dead, Mirrors Edge and COD: World at War. Sadly, decent trades like Tiger Woods 08 and Burnout Paradise are no longer eligible, but surprisingly Lego Star Wars is still on the list. I got the new flier today from a Gamestop, I have the images too and can post them if anybody could explain how I could do that here.

I just got back from picking up my LBP preorder and traded,

:ps3: GTA IV - $12.50 - $20.00 with deal
:360: Burnout Paradise - $8.00 - $20.00 with deal
:360: Cabela's Alaskan hunt 360 - $4.75 - No deal, not on list

And received Saints Row 2 for $19.99

I'll be going back tomorrow with a Halo 3 that I picked up for $9 and Tiger Woods 08 so I can pick up Midnight Club:LA for $19.99 also. :bouncy:

This has been going on for a while. There were a few posts about it, but I'm not sure that it got its own thread. The deal is good through 11/02. Lego Star Wars (at least on the 360, probably the others as well) no longer qualifies for the deal automatically, due to the price drop, but they may be willing to override it for you (they did for me). I don't know for certain if there are others that no longer qualify.

Oh God, they brought back this horrible promotion again?!? I'm so sick of GameStop having complicated promotions that takes a 5-paragraph essay to explain. Can't they just stick to giving out good coupons online? How about a straight-forward 10% off?

Wow. Where did you find the flier? Usually when I go to Gamestop they find a way to weasel out of honoring their own deals if I don't have some sort of proof with the details.

If they don't need the case, I see that 360 Lego Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda are on the trade-inable list. If you happened to find a couple of those combos during a B2G1, they would have been $24. If they do B2G1 again this weekend, I'm just sayin...

Do they require case/manual for these? I bought C&C 3 the other day and they gave me the Kane's Wrath disc by mistake.

I went in for the $10 when you trade in 2 deal and the guy pointed out the stack of fliers on the counter and told me that was a better deal. The guys at this store have always been willing to help people out :applause:

I realize this was their mistake, but don't you think you should see about swapping for the game you actually purchased?

As far as requiring case/manual, I'd imagine it's YMMV.

Most stores should have gotten these flyers weeks ago. A few stores may not have gotten them. If the store didn't get them, you may have to try another (thanks to the EB/GS merger, you shouldn't have to travel much farther than you would to find a Starbucks (unless you are in Seattle or NYC, or have a Starbucks under your anchor desk)). At the stores that did not have flyers, I was given responses ranging from "That promotion ended" to "That promotion never existed", to one guy spending 20 minutes trying to find it, and ending up calling around to another store and getting them to bring some of the flyers over (I did not wait around for the flyers to be delivered, but it was nice that this guy went the extra mile, considering the other responses).

CAGs please don't due this, it is such a rip-off. BlockBuster offers you so much more for most of those.

hmm, I was already thinking about trading Super Smash Bros: Brawl and The Orange Box (PS3) with the 30% cell phone coupon. I think that will give me more than $40 which is what this deal appears to be worth.

Sorry for the double post, but CAG for the iPhone doesn't have an edit feature.

Sarrasis, they currently have a trade to next-ten get 10 bonus. However, the 5 extra per game is only effective at anything above $2 and theoretically anything under $12.50 base. Anything after 12.50 is better off using Edge and Cellfire for 40% more trade.

Orange Box is a good candidate for this deal, but, yeah, if SSBB is still trading for ~$27, then it obviously isn't the best value to trade it in on this deal. If I were you, I'd see if I could find something else on the list to pair up with Orange Box.

Trade 2 get $10 bonus works for games with individual base trade values over $1, not just over $2. Also, the 10% Edge stacks, but only on the base, not on the bonus, so it is actually beneficial to do the trade 2 get $10 bonus up on games with up to $16.66 base trade value -- Above that, Cellfire is better.

BTW, You have no idea how many times I've wished I had a corporate-owned BlockBuster around here.

Gears gets 25 I believe, and not sure on Bully. I think it sells for 19.99 or 24.99 used, so prolly not to much.

I didn't know it was $2. I was just going based ok what everyone says in the BB/GR thread. Also, my math was off, forgot to take into account edge+$5 on games vs 40% extra.

Most games on the trade list is Ripping Off MSRP $29.99 - $49.99 and they want 2 of your games plus extra $10 - $20. Crazy deal ever ...!

a little tip:
If you don't want any of the new games on that list, you can simply pick up any game, then keep the reciept, you have 30 days to bring the game back to trade for another new game, or heck, even cash.

Hey about this: buy 2 Lego Star Wars for Wii which is about 27.00 (with CAG16 and Edge card) shipped from Gamestop, and trade back in with 20 dollars for Fallout 3. I wonder if there are cheaper games on the list though...

Lego Star Wars is YMMV. It does require the employee to override. However, with it listed in the flyer, most employees may be willing to do so.

Tiger 08 is also a good one to use for this deal. 12.59 after 20% off + Edge I believe.

Also, at least in my two cases, I have been able to apply Edge to the games traded in, so got an extra percentage taken away from the amount owed.

Depending on the games used, you can get a brand new title for roughly 43 in credit.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing too. What kind of idiots would trade it Wii Fit + Balance Board for this crappy deal? Hopefully, not too many.

Anyway, this deal can turn out to be good if the games I trade in are crappy games that I bought for cheap and I don't even play anymore.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 - Should I trade in PS3 or 360 version?
skate - same as above, trade in PS3 or 360 version?
Oblivion (360) - I already have the GOTY version, no need for this version
MLB 2K8 (360) - I got it for only $8 and MLBA08 The Show is superior.
FIFA 08 (PS3) - Bought for $10
FIFA08 (Wii) - Bought for $5

That should be enough to get Fallout 3, Midnight Club LA and another game.
