Scored a X360 S. No extra $25 bonus for me, and I also didn't anticipate the need for a play and charge kit but they told me I needed it, so I had to pay $12 for one...all in all $200.xx credit out the door after all the stuff I traded in.


Hahaha, unless I am grossly misinformed, you just got conned by a greasy teenager. You "need" a play and charge kit? Really? I am disappointed in you, young padawan.

To take advantage of the deal, do I have to trade in my old 360 when I reserve the new 360? I'd really hate to be without my 360 when I just bought Mass Effect 2 today.


I just put my reserve down and the guy told me they would honor the trade in deal if it was over when they got the next batch in. The time frame he quoted me was still before July 11th but he still made sure to point it out. This is probably YMMV but it never hurts to ask.

I've been riding a fine line on that for a while. We have a lot of users that use this thread in stores on mobile devices to pick up clearance items to take to GameStop. That is the reason for the rainbow of colors. There were some issues with text showing up on the mobile format incorrectly in some cases so I try to make those easier to read for regular site users and mobile users as well. It's been a fine line.

Also, all that other text has been collected because every thread we would get the same questions over and over. I try to keep it condensed and as easy to follow as possible. I've been debating moving everything down one post and moving the FAQ into the second post. Possibly using spoilers for the answers to again cut down on the length of the page for scrolling.

I greatly appreciate the masterful work that was put into this post. I don't know what you consider "Junk Text" but the disclaimers are very helpful and the use of the spoiler button means you don't have to skim through absolutely everything to find what you need. If those spoiler buttons weren't there I can't imagine what you'd have to say about it.

I saw something really sad a little while ago. I was third in line at gamestop. (Just trading stuff in). A group of three people was in front of me. 2 of them were doing the system trade in. They had called ahead to make sure some were available apparently. Anyway, the manager went to get the boxes and came back empty handed. He said both of them were damaged so he couldn't sell them. Now before you doubt him, this manager is a great guy. He wouldn't pull a shady move and he did the system trade for the guy in front of these people. I felt really bad for the people because they had apparently driven some distance. That said they were very polite about it.

And now, some TIVs

They are not restocking the gamestops until next month and buy then the deal will be over.

The date I keep hearing is July 9th and the deal ends July 11th. If I can't get the deal, I'll cancel my order and they lose money.

Oh the misinformed. GS really hires some dunces and they seem to get you to fall for it.

Most (if not all) GS's will be restocked at least twice next week. All of the CO area stores are saying they'll be 4-8 per shipment. (Number will be even as there's 2 consoles per shipping carton)

How is it everyone elses fault they have to believe what GS employees tell them when it comes to stock issues. What? Are they supposed to just accuse them of lying right there in the store?

It is not the consumers fault that the store may not give them accurate information.

Picked mine up today. After trading a bunch of old DS games that I had laying around plus one controller and my wireless adapter I ended up at 285.73 total but I also bought an Edge card so I only ended up paying about 30 dollars for my xbox.

just my luck they have this Slim promo after i've already traded/sold my 20 gig hdd, spare wireless controller, and 2 headsets.

now i'm left with a Jasper arcade, one wireless controller, and my 120gb hdd..just the basics

i'll get next to **** for that. And i don't get paid til the end of the month :(

and i don't really want to trade the majority of my "keeper" titles to upgrade. Although I do have a few that are on the guaranteed $25 TIV list (Forza 3, MW2, BFBC2, RDR)

Any reason why the FAQ scroll-a-thon isn't after the TIVs? I mean, the very first question is about why the prices are so low, but it's before any prices even show up.

Got mine. Last one in store. All went fine, only hiccup is I noticed that two of the games I traded in didn't get full value. I wanted to trade in 9 games for the "Trade 3, Get $10 extra" deal, and then trade in Just Cause 2 and Super Mario Galaxy for $25 each. Well, JC2 and SMG got mixed in with the Trade 3, Get $10, and two games just got usual EDGE bumpage. If I take my receipt back, will they be able to adjust that, or will it be a huge pain? It's not a huge deal to me (though I'd like that extra $15), but if I can get it done with ease I will.

Anyways, traded in Console+Controller, HDD, Wireless adapter and 11 games and got the new 360 and had $13.xx leftover on EDGE.


Not to be that guy, but does anyone have an answer to my question?

I feel putting the question before they see the base values puts them in the right mindset. A lot of people barely read the first post as it is. If I put the FAQ after the trade-in values we would get more redundant questions than we already do because no one would actually see the post. At least they have to scroll past the FAQ to even get to the prices listed. Also, some people look at the values from the database and then look at the promos in the thread.

Depending upon how good standing you are with your local GameStop will determine how easy it is. Some stores won't do it and since you signed the pad and left the store it is pretty much binding. People have had varying levels of success getting them to fix items like that.
