Did this last week, bought TR:U and SCIV from Target on clearance then went to the Gamestop next door to save $10 on RE5. Didn't know you were supposed to take the shrink wrap off, the cashier tried to give me $126 (60+5% tax each) in credit even I told him no before the manager did. As cool as it would be to make $96 off of $30, couldn't let a new cashier get in trouble for doing a trade in promo as a return. Happy enough getting the game, let alone with $10 off.

Yep, always take the shrinkwrap off any games you're flipping. If you don't, some employees might take it as you're trading in stolen goods.

Anyone know if Edge stacks? Like trade in 2 games for $40, and use edge to get $44.

Seems like a lot of people are finding games on the list they they a) have and b) got cheap. Hard to justify trading 2 games you paid over $100 for only a few months ago.

Just called to see how much my local gamestop would give for Little Big Planet (trying to partake in the extra 20% for RE5 deal) and apparently they don't do trade in values over phone. Is this true (or was he being lazy)?

*edit* Called another gamestop, said the same thing (he said he would actually need to see the condition of the game, I think they are trying to protect themselves from scammers or something [iono]). Also that 20% extra when trading in for RE5 is still available (does this deal stack with edge card's 10%, forgot to ask).

et
And for your 20% stacking, I suggest you just buy filler games (Old xbox games $1-$2 each etc.) and get eligible for the 40% + 10% edge. But yes, the edge card should stack on that.

I guess in my area, gamestop employees are lazy.

also, that comment on that cheap 360 flip deals...never tried it... is it worth it (I guess a %40 bump is awesome though).

I'm thinking about trading in

Little Big Planet - TIV $24.00 (with 20% and E.card should be around $31.68)
Warhawk - TIV ??? (anyone know this one, any updated list of gamestop TIV [that wiki one hasn't been updated for awhile I think])
Assassin's Creed - TIV ~$5.00 (with 20% and E.card should be $6.50

I would need 3 more games to partake in %40 extra...hmmz any suggestions on good, easy fillers?
*edit* do they still take in Gamecube or PS2 games?

I *believe* they still take Xbox/GC/PS2, unless they stopped recently. Be sure to check in with a GS employee on that before you go though). Also find the minimum needed for the fillers to be eligible for 40%, I think it's minimum .50$ per game.

They take GC and PS2 but not XB1. Employees are supposed to not tell TIV over phone.

was able to trade in PS3 GTA IV and X360 Blitz the league II for resident evil. the deal did not work however got the manager to override it and got the deal. he wasnt very good at math so he took off too much so i ended up paying $17.20 or something like that.

Awesome. I think I'll trade in Blitz 2 and Spiderman web of shadows. I picked them up for 9.98 and 12.48 respectively (thanks Target clearance), making a $60 game cost me only $42ish.
I'm attempting to sell some rarities:

-SCPH-1110 (aka sony ps1 flightstick)
-R4 box with Jogcon controller and t-shirt (JP)
-Earthbound, complete

He probably included the Edge card bonus based on the original trade values.
