honestly i would just say I lost the video cables and can you buy some from them to include in the trade in. you can look for some used ones at a GS near you and theyre probably lke 5bucks.

or perhaps, if the GS employee is nice, and if your going to buy the arcade at the same time you trade the console in, they'll let you take the cables out of the new arcade and give them as part of the trade in. again, you probably have to be lucky and get a nice GS employee

Wouldn't he have to buy new cables anyway?

I was just at GS at closing time, they were putting up new signs for the new deals. Looks like we have two new deals:

1) Trade 2 Wii games, get $10 bonus, trade 4 Wii games, get $25 bonus (but games $4.00 and under are excluded).

2) Trade 3/4/5 games, get extra 10%/20%/30% bonus. (So no more 40% tier.)

well, no because he already has he component cables he wants to keep. he takes the composite cables thats the arcade comes with and give those for the 360 hes tradeing in. then he has an arcade with no video cable but he still has the component at home. so Gamestop gets A/V cables with the trade in and he still has his component cables

Whew, good thing I traded when I did. Here are some TIV for 4/4:

Xbox 360:
Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon - $14.00

PS3:
Prince of Persia - $17.25 (this was the special edition put in a regular case but I don't think it matters)

Wii:
House of the Dead: Overkill - $18.00 (should have just returned this after I bought it but oh well)

DS:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - $4.00
Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 - $5.00
Brain Age 2 - $7.00

Grand total after promotion was applied was $97.87. Much more than I anticipated. Really hoping for a B2G1 at Gamedays or at the very least a decent % off coupon in the coming weeks.

OK, so I traded some junk in yesterday. These are the base prices:

Disney Princess Wii - $7
Animal Crossing GC - $6.50
Mario Party 5 - $8.75
Mario Party 4 - $7.75
Nicktoons Unite GC - $3.00
Curious George PS2 - $3.25
Disgaea 2 - $10.75

I know that I may have been able to get more for some of them, but after the bonuses I came close enough for right now. I'm trying to simplify and get rid of things we aren't playing anymore.

YMMV. Usually no because thats combining two promos which they don't do right there, but your employee maybe be dumb enough to go through with it. If that fails just go to GameCrazy, you get $90 trade in with DS Lite towards DSi.

Trade values from yesterday, 4/4. First base, then with bonus+edge

Mario Kart Wii 20/30
Super Smash Bros Brawl 25/37.50
Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (Wii) 17/25.50
Madden 08 (NGC) 8.50/12.75
Eye Toy Kinetic (PS2) 0.85/1.27
Brain Age 2 (NDS) 7/10.50

Total with bonuses was $117.52.

There were no changes from the OP. Note that Madden 08 is a decent flip via this deal from Blockbuster if you can find a copy (used). It's $6.99+tax at blockbuster (used), and trades for $12.75 with bonuses at GS. It's probably not likely you'll find it, though, and the deal ends today, right? I'll miss this deal.

I also traded in my DS Lite for the $70 deal on a DSi pre-order, and used most of the above credit to pay the rest. Will be picking it up in an hour or so! Note: in MD there is NO deal where you don't have to pay taxes if you pay for a pre-order in full with Edge credit. That had been mentioned by some NY residents in the past. I paid in full and was still charged tax. So no go on that in MD. Oh well.

I got some sick deal yesterday from the 40% + edge making it 50%.

I traded in
Pokemon Leaf Green
Fire Emblem (both GBA titles)
Sonic and the Secret Rings
DBZ 3 on Wii
Zelda Collector's Disc (just got my n64 back!)
plus some PS2 games that couldn't have gotten me more than $5.

Total $: 104

Time to get me some games.

Spoke with a local Gamestop and they confirmed the standard Tiered Trade 3/4/5 for 10/20/30% comes back tomorrow.'

EDIT: Damn it, double posted. Whoops.

UPDATE: Some people are saying in another thread the standard Tiered starts today. I was told by my local store it doesn't start back up until tomorrow. Of course they aren't the most intelligent bunch. If anyone can get confirmation with trade ins I'd appreciate it so I could update first post appropriately. I just know the online information says this trade expires today.

According to his TIV list he traded in 5 games and 1 accessory.

I traded 6 games today (ill add tiv later) but it was indeed trade 3 for 10% 4 for 20% and 5 for 30%.

i got 40% total bonus with edge.

You got jobbed. Maybe there weren't six with a TIV over 1.00?

All base TIVs
PSP Ultimate Ghost and Goblins 3.00
PS3 Rock Band Track Pack Vol 2 6.50
PS2 Singstar Legends 8.25
PS2 Singstar Rocks 9.75
360 Disney Sing It 9.00
360 Bioshock 10.00
360 Bully 7.00
360 Two Worlds 3.00
360 Eternal Sonata 9.00

PS2 Singstar Microphones 3.50

I got a total of 102.10 after the 40% bonus from promo #6570 on all but the mics and 10% edge bonus. Bioshock was 15 total 10+1 for edge and+4 for promo. They almost took an xbox headset since it can plug into a 360 controller, but they decided not to.

Thanks for that end date, that's probably the end for the tiered trade promo as well.

If you trade in four wii games, do you get the extra 20% (30% w/ edge) AND the 25$ bonus, or just the 20%?
