As usual Ski Doo is a good trade in from GS.
GS-35% (coupon and edge) -> AMZ TIV
Ski Doo 360 $5.85 -> $5.25

PS3 one not as good
Ski Doo PS3 $2.59 -> $2.25


OK, then, I've got my plan: find 27 used, complete copies of Ski Doo PS3 and I'm golden! Hopefully I can find them all at one Gamestop so that I can take the stack up and tell them that one is for me, and the other 26 are for friends. ;^)

EDIT: but seriously, thanks for the tip. I will pick up a copy or two of one or both of these as a filler.

Between the $30 off, ECA, and Goldbox, I'm getting some seriously cheap preorders:

Gran Turismo 5, Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted 2 preorders for $18.44 each. I probably made about $8 on each trade too so brand new games for about $10 each. Gotta love that.

check your goldbox ppl, i actually have god of war iii in it at 10% off today, which is rare that I ever actually get a game in there, let alone a high profile one.

Best online trading website currently in my opinion.  Trust me I'm a CAG.

You don't need to read 50 pages.... just the first one. It's up to 10 business days or so. People have been getting it in 2-4.

Top of the page, "today's deals". The second half of the screen "your name quick picks" will appear. Anything there is 5% off the regular listed amazon price(which will usually already be a certain % off). I think it's only 5%. Anyway, there are ways to kind of manipulate the gold box to get games etc to appear in there...but hell, I've tried everything that's been posted, on two different accounts, for two weeks, and I have barely seen a game in it.

Hey everyone,
I was wondering if anyone is willing to take over this thread. I just got accepted to a master's degree program which starts a week from Monday so I won't be able to update the Trade-in deal of the day and maintain this thread as a whole. If you're interested, please PM me. All the information and FAQ is already there anyway so it should be easy.

I got confirmation today it was my first trade in one of the games was accepted despite being the wrong game I sent in regular Morrowind in GOTY version box and got credit. So I just wait a couple days for my $30 code.

Yes that Goldbox has turned into complete BS. They have been putting garbage in mine. I had Uncharted 2 in my Goldbox once. I have only bought and rated game stuff, yet they won't put anything worthwhile in mine.

Anyone willing to trade two $30 off amazon coupons for my 50% off coupon.

I was going to get the Beatles Rock band, but I don't really have the cash, even with the 50%, to get the special edition.

PM me if interested.


Sent you a couple of PMs. Please let me know.

Thanks!

My goldbox is worthless. I can't remember the last time it had a video game in it. It seems to always have the same things more or less, and they are all related to purchases I made that were gifts for my mother-in-law. Note: I like my mother-in-law, but she doesn't ask for video games. :)

On the good side, I found a copy of Excitebots still tagged at $17.99 and a copy of Fight Night Round 4 PS3, using the 25% coupon. I've got a 2 copy FNR4 trade-in locked in, so I need to get a second copy. Excitebots I've got locked in with a bunch of other stuff I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll find at another GS tonight, though I'm going to have to make two trips unless they let me use 2 coupons and do separate transactions.

Does anyone know how Amazon handles the "Pre-order price guarantee" in regards to the 50% coupon?

IGN just put up an article that says that Activision has yet to finalize a price for DJ Hero Renegade Edition and if I order it at $200 with the 50% off code what would happen if they drop it to $175? I know that the Beatles Rockband has been fluctuating so I did not know if they are adjusting accordingly. Thanks.

I think some people ran into this on here regarding some preorders. From what I understand Amazon gives you back the difference...but don't quote me.

I'm skipping Amazons TOTD (trade of the day) on Phoenix Wright. Finding complete games is hard and the acceptance on NDS is starting to vary. At least Gamestops latest coupon is so good that we are guaranteed 6 more days of potential flips :bouncy:


With that said, i think im going to skip the flip and pick up two games for personal enjoyment from gamestop. Gears of war 2 and the Forza2/MUA pack should cost around $35 :D

It took 7 days after I got my trade-in credit for the 50% off coupon to finally arrive. I quickly ordered an Xbox 360 Ion Drum Rocker. Sweet. :)

Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories for ps2 gets 16.50 trade in, this is definitely an easy game to find at gamestop so after 25% plus edge its 17.50.

Has amazon been sending back a lot of NDS games? What reasons have they been giving?

I bought 4 phoenix wright games today with manuals and covers at one mall (this mall has 3 GS stores).

It depends.

As others have suggested, the max time (from the day they accept your trade-ins) is 10 days. If it's been past that point, than they should not hesitate to give you an answer.

It took me 2 days to receive mine...others have been from 2-9 days...

So has it or has it not been confirmed if you can get multiple +$30 coupons on the same account?? I know at least two people said they received two codes in the same email, but one person said that only one code worked and the other said both did. Did I miss anything or is that all the information we have so far?

I'm right where you are right now. I'm still unsure. I created trades on 2 different accounts just to play it safe.

I've had 6 trades go through on the $30 coupons all with codes. I've used 5 of the 6 already with no problems. I have 6 more on the same account and don't expect any problems.
