I'll keep it simple and concise for once. It's NOT fuckin' free if you still have to pay for it, either with credit you could be getting due to one promo or another or if some generous soul(like I've been a couple of times)lets you use their Edge card while in the store for a purchase or trade bump. /concise answer
The only way this bullshit discount card would be worth it is if it applied to EVERYTHING in the store and not just their used, shit condition stuff.
The only good part about it now is that it adds 10% to CASH trades, which reduces the amount they penalize you for taking cash over credit by 50%(normally 20%).
Otherwise, the card is useless and only worth about 1/3 of what they charge for it. If GS could take Game Informer and shove it up their ass and only charge what EB Games used to for the EDGE card($5), THEN it'd be great.
You must have bad gamestops. In my local stores the edge card works on the 'used, shit condition stuff' (which I refuse to buy) AND the 'used, good condition stuff' which I do buy.
Do they have a section labeled 'shit condition stuff' or is it all mixed in with the rest of it?
