...... critical reading to the rescue.



You asked if you would get more by trading in more than one group of 5. The answer is NO. Why? Because the terms specifically state that you get the same amount for any amount OVER 5. ANY amount over 5. 5, 50, 500, 5000. How about 453 or 12? It doesn't matter. Same percentage boost.

You trade in 5 games, you get 30%
You trade in 50 games, you get 30%.

If you want a diagram, let me know. I'm bored enough.

you are telling me i will get the same monies if i trade 5 or 50 games plus 30% i dont believe it...yea diagram might help

You will get the same percentage boost, not the same amount of money (or "monies"). If you trade 5 games, you will get the base trade value for those 5 games + 30% of that base value. If you trade 50 games, you will get the base trade value for those 50 games + 30%. The store may require you to have your parent/legal guardian/someone who can do math or think logically present to make the trade.

ANYWAY, with the Hollywood Video deal I'm shocked that more CAGs aren't reporting prices here where they belong. Shame, shame, shame CAGs!

I was going to calm down on the flipping addiction for a bit, but now that this deal combined with a new victim (HWV) is so profitable I'm re-addicting myself. HAHAHA.

By the way, the reason I stopped flipping for a couple of days was because I got district banned at BBV (thank goodness there's other BBV districts right near me). Let's just say I flipped over $1000 profit in 2 weeks. Yeah, I know. Learned the hard way.

Will be posting TIVs once I get started tomorrow (later?).

Good clarification. I thought you only get +30% Bonus for every 5 games you trade in, as in you had to trade in multiples of 5 (AKA trading in 6 games meant you got +30% on the first 5 and then +10% on the 6th). Glad this isn't the case. Gonna head to the store nearby during my lunch break and flip in those games I got above (along with some older games i had but don't need anymore, including NBA 2K8 :ps3:, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 :ds:, and Sprung :ds:. I'm sure I'll get barely a $ on Sprung.)

Okay. I'll bite.

If you need more info about this offer after seeing this, you quite frankly don't deserve help. Or maybe you deserve the most help. I dunno. Pick one.

First batch dropped at Gamestop.
Only new PS2 trade in value to add is
REZ $4 (took a shot, it's $29.99 used on GS.com, hoped for more)
Had 3 of the big flips, Lego Indy, Mercs 2, and SWFU.
Total so far.
Hollywood cash $38.42----$144.60(includes $1 refurb on Rez)

Actually have wifey's support on this deal, have 2 'fresh' stores to hit tonight. Hopefully they aren't touched.
I also had NO problem with the games that had original front but Hollywood rental print out on the back. I was shying away from those, but they were good.

Kept a PS2 Wall-E, Xbox Family Guy, and Mario Party 4.

Traded in the following today to the Wilsonville, OR store at 12:29pm:

:ps2: .hack//G.U. ; $9.00 ; $12.60 ; 3.2
:ps2: .hack//Mutation ; $8.50 ; $11.90 ; 3.0
:ps2: Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy ; $9.00 ; $12.60 ; 3.2
:ps2: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames ; $18.75 ; $26.25 ; 6.6
:ps2: Street Fighter Alpha Anthology ; $11.75 ; $16.45 ; 4.1
:ps2: Wild Arms 5 ; $6.75 ; $9.45 ; 2.4
:ds: Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 ; $10.00 ; $14.00 ; N/A

TOTAL ; $73.75 ; $103.25 ; 4.3

All except Mario vs. DK2 were from HWV for $3.99 each. The first price is the normal trade-in value. The second price is +40% (after +30% from "Trade in 5+ Games" & +10% EDGE; best $2 investment in my life!)

The decimal number at the end is my return (based on the $3.99 purchase price and trade-in value I got). Essentially I bought any game to trade-in that I got a return of at least 2. That means picking up any game that still trades in for at least $6 because you get $8.40 after bonuses. Still debating on whether to trade in Fatal Frame II :ps2: or GrimGrimoire :ps2: GS offers $15 and $6 before bonuses. I might keep Grim, but trade in Fatal Frame II.

Also, NBA 2K8 :ps3: trades in for $1 now. That needs to be updated on the OP. The only game I picked up that I'm not trading in but wanted to was Wild Arms 4. I actually lose $0.50 if I trade it in!

In summary, I spent $23.94 (and traded in one of my own games) and got $103.25 for a return of 4.3! Great stuff. We'll see how my overall return ends up after I trade in a bunch more tomorrow.

I got $8 for REZ back in early October, and the used pricetag was about the same. Like I wrote in my recent blog entry, it appears GameStop has dropped all PS2/Xbox/GC trade-in values in November. I wrote about it in my CAG Blog.

If anyone could whip up a list of high-value XBOX games, that'd be amazing. I know there's a few that traded high, but GS took down their list of Xbox games.

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.

GS will take games sans art but with case, or simply disc only. However, some GameStops will attempt to charge you some kind of fee (I think often people get hit with refurbs even though it's not for refurbishment) to cover the cost of printing art.

I've never experienced it myself, but if they do it, I'd just take it to a different GS.

I know that maybe you didn't want to deal with eBay, but that game goes for $50-60 on there. Cash. Even with eBay/Paypal fees, it'd have been much better.
