While I'm not going all-out and getting 10 games that will net me an extra $25 credit or anything, I did pick up 2 copies of one game that all by themselves will get me $25 more than what I paid by trading them to BB. Since it seems the BB trade-in is only online like Amazon, hard to say how successful it is yet.

As to AC2, has anyone actually been able to get the 29.99 price using that trade-in deal? Last I heard it didn't qualify due to being on sale already.


AC2 would require you getting a very lenient employee or manager who would allow an on the spot return on something else that goes for $30 new now like Little Big Planet GOTY or Killzone 2.

However, that would definitely look a little fishy if the employee did an on the spot return of a game you just bought. So unless you have 2 Gamestops within close distance of each other or really cool employees at one to allow the above, you might be SOL.

Honestly aside from the $25 promo flipping these isn't as great as it requires you to get 6 games per batch to be worth it. The $25 bonus for certain games is 100% awesome though.


what $25 promo?

Couldn't you just request a gift receipt with the purchase of one of the valid games (LBP:GOTY, KZ2, etc.) and then return/exchange the game within the next 30 days (with the new game sealed)? That's what I'm planning on doing and getting a copy of AC2 in exchange.

So..let me get this straight. The games that are on the list on the first page, I can buy one..Say Fear 2 for 9.99 on PS3 and get another game on the list for free?


Yes, and keep in mind I have by no means updated all the prices in that list so, if anything, many of the games are even cheaper than listed. Many of the $14.99 games will be $9.99 and many of the $9.99 games will be $6.99.

Of course, just to be clear, these are used games and for the most part ex-rentals, so condition and completeness will vary. The good thing about PS3 games is that they can withstand quite a beating so if that's what you are after chances are you can get them in pretty good shape.

You could, but some(me) would be doing the $25 off promo at Gamestop to get Assassin's Creed to flip to Best Buy for $30 in credit there, which is why I would try to find the cheapest game on the qualifying list at Gamestop with the BOGO at Blockbuster so the max I'm paying for it is $7.50 as part of a pair of $14.99 games.:D

Btw, I highly recommend calling a store and seeing if they have a copy of a title in stock. A store by me was able to check and see what store had a copy of a game I was looking for without a problem.

My Blockbuster (only went to one so far) didn't have many good titles for the sale. I mainly went to see if I could get a cheap copy of The Incredible Hulk. Surprisingly, I did.

I got:

Incredible Hulk (complete, 360) - $6.99
Lego Indiana Jones - (complete, Free)

I wanted both games, and $7 for both is awesome. I am pleased.

Ah, I see what you mean :D Forgot about the Best Buy trade value, but I plan on actually getting AC2 to play. I am thinking of trading in my other copy of Mario & Sonic to Best Buy for the $20 value in addition to some other PS2 games which get a surprising TIV there compared to GS and other places.

You could just trade-in your BB games for LBP:GOTY at GS so you don't have to worry about the return/exchange issue. It also nets $30 at Best Buy.

I ended up giving one of my Hot Shots PS3 as a gift and the other I'm trading to Amazon for $19.25, the $20 at Best Buy is nice, but Amazon has a better selection of merchandise.

Wow so I got another round of Best Buys and had to swing by the one I went to yesterday and already got the good stuff (anything Mario, Beautiful Katamari, etc)

So I get a $14.99 Lost Odyessy and $14.99 Kingdom Hearts then a $9.99 Drawn to Life and a Final Fantasy DS game (Echoes I believe) just to trade into EB to get the 40% bonus and the guy at the register instisted that he had to do a $14.99 and a $9.99. I could understand but argued against it (I mean he wants best for his failing company) and he told me it was the same price ($35) that it should be...which didn't make sense (again BBV employees...really nice guy but as I told him it was simple math...$10 + $15 = $25+tx not $35). He got frustrated and I just gave him the ol' thumbs up and went back later when I figured someone else was going to be there since its next to the GS I was going to go to, so grabbed dinner and went back when someone else was there. He still looked bitter...

If it wasn't for the fact that I got 6 complete games and $100 in GS credit (More to come when I return the GH games) I would be really frustrated..but I thought I would share.

Oh they can check other stores in the area? I called for a couple games and the lady was more than happy to hold them for me.

I'll call back and have them check the other stores.

Mind numbingly confusing?:roll: You're serious?

How hard is it to understand? Take one of the games from on that list on Gamestop.com(some of which can be bought with this B1G1 sale) into Gamestop, bring up a $29.99 or higher game saying you want to buy it. Pay the difference that's left after the $25 discount and you're out the door in like 5-10 minutes.

Judging from the list, it's safe to say most of the Mario games are being traded for.

I was wishing for a copy of Layton, and sure enough I found one!
Professor Layton and the Curious village
Final fantasy XII (12, not 13)
Both were mint, 7 bucks. Great deal!

BTW, does somebody know if I should pick up Kingdom Hearts DS? Dunno if it's my cup of tea, since I like turn-based more than action -RPGs...

:bomb: You're supposed to let the newbie figure this shit out for themselves. Now that you spoon fed them the info, they'll just ask(and ask and ask and ask till someone answers out of frustration)instead of researching how to get in on a deal anymore.:cry:

Picked up PS3 QoS and Tiger Woods 2009 tonight for the BOGO sale. Not much of a selection unless you have a 360, which I rarely play anymore. Scouring the area tomorrow for more deals. My closest Blockbuster had a huge sign up inside.

Doesn't matter. Pick it up anyway. It trades in for more than it costs at BBV right now. That's not even considering B1G1. Get a second game to trade in with it and you'll trigger the extra 10% for two promotion, bumping it up even more. Zero risk to you.
