so apparently not only is the tiered trade not work for last gen games anymore, but it also only works for games with 2 dollar + TIV.


Thats not true, I did it today and the bump applied. However, I do appreciate the fact that you made me look. When I examined my latest receipt I noticed the new guy at the store had somehow not applied my edge bonus. So I went back to the store for an adjustment (they can do it and it took 2 mins), and then got a less than stellar experience from the store manager with basic sullenness, which was totally uncalled for. I'm on the fence about giving him a bad review.

TIVS

Wii We Ski and Snowboard 6.00$
Wii Heavenly Guardian 0.90$
PS3 The Bigs 2 15$ (Note on this it will no longer work on the ac2/mw2 trade as of tomorrow)
360 - Cloudy w/a Chance of Meatballs 13.00$
360 - PDZ0 0.90$
360 - Splinter Cell: Double Agent 3.00$

Hello all. Does anybody know whether or not the $25 Hardware bonus will still be valid tomorrow on 11/22/09? I was wanting to trade in my old XBOX 360 (had gotten a new Jasper arcade off amazon for $100), but was hoping that the trade-in deal would still be valid so that I could get $95 instead of $70.

Also, is this all that's necessary to trade-in?

*XBOX 360 Console
*Wireless XBOX 360 Controller
*XBOX 360 Power Supply
*XBOX 360 Standard A/V Cables

Thanks to anybody who takes the time to answer in advance.

anybody else notice gamestops refusal to lower the price of used games so that some of these games have the same price for a new copy as they do a used one?



I remember once Afro Samurai droped to $20 new they still had it for $25 used...and that lasted at least a month :lol:

I plan on getting Assassin Creed 2 and Demon Soul's during the B2G1 free sale, but I have a question:

If I trade in:

Batman: AA for PS3 for $30 for Assassin Creed 2 used
Borderlands 360 for $30 for Demon Souls used

so I only pay $45 for Ac2 and DM, could I get a $50 free game considering the original price for Ac2 and DM are $50-55?

Sorry if this is a dumb question. Never tried this before. >_<


Ok, I am going to attempt to answer this oddly worded question...

The short answer is yes.

But this would be much easier if you didn't think of it as trading Game A for Game B. Think of it as 2 separate transactions as follows:

First the trade-in:
Borderlands $25 + 10% trade 2 bonus = $27.50 ($30 with edge card)
Batman: AA $25 + 10% trade 2 bonus = $27.50 ($30 with edge card)

Okay so now you got $60 Store credit assuming you have edge card

Now for the purchase:

Assassins Creed 2 $50-55 (used)
Demons Soul 2 $50-55 (used)
Any other used game priced up to $50-55 Free

So $100-110 (depending on in-store price) less $60 Trade credit

=$40-50 plus tax for the 3 games after using up your trade-in credit

P.S. Good luck on finding used copies of both AC2 and DS2 already.

so he lied to me then? or maybe he said $1.00, all I know is that when I told him I was going to buy Sneak King and some other .99 cent game he told me that they wouldn't end up stacking with the tiered promo if that's what I was intending on doing, I said oh alright, and then he noticed in my games I was trading in, that I had Prey, and he told me that one wouldn't have worked anyways.

This promotion never included last gen games (it did during the summer if I recall).

Two of the six games I traded on Thursday had a $1 TIV and I got the 40% bonus, so not sure about your experience. Also, nowhere in the wording is a minimum mentioned.


I'm aware it never included last gen games this time around, I was referring to the other times I've used the tiered promo, I had always remembered it including last gen games.

Yeah, I should have probably been more aggresive about it and pointed out that there's no minimum required, but whatever, I got lied and cheated outta about $15 extra, but oh well.

TiV from this weekend

11/21
:ps3: Bigs 2 - $15
:360: Bigs 2 - $15

11/22
:360: Skate 2 - $9.50
:360: Halo 3 - $15

Also they would not allow me to trade in Bigs 2 today. The woman said because I had traded it in yesterday. I thought you could only not trade multiples in one transaction, but she said you are not allowed to trade a 2nd copy of a game in any circumstances. I call BS on that, but I wasn't going to get into an argument over it.

PS3 The Bigs 2 15$ (Note on this it will no longer work on the ac2/mw2 trade as of tomorrow)
$


Is this confirmed? The website doesn't have it listed as excluded from the deal. Either way I'm guessing the TiV is going to take a big hit today or monday.

Thanks. And sorry I couldn't explain that better. Hopefully I can find a good deal for AC2 or Demon Souls on amazon before I try this and give gamestop more of my money.. >_<

Ok. When you wrote "anymore" it sounded like you thought this promotion did as some point include other games. Either way, it's important to know going into a GS what the promotions are because relying on the employees isn't in your best interest. But you already found that out. Just please don't compound the error by spreading the employee's ignorance as fact.

For the tiered trade, it should include all games aside from really low valued games < $1. That's what I've always been told. You can trade in a shit load of $2 PS2 games if you wanted to get the bonus.

Not anymore. Current gen only.

Also, my GS has a used AC2, but said they can't sell it because there is a glitch in the system where it rings up for $300. Has anyone heard anything about this?

Yes same thing happened to me, so they put AC2 as the ps3 version. (360 version is glitched according to manager but ps3 version is fine) and he will change it later to 360. Ask them next time to try that.

Assassins Creed 2 - $30
Left 4 Dead 2 - $30
New Super Mario Bros. Wii - $25
