I've received a couple pm's from people wanting to contribute prices but don't want to get harassed about selling to someone or getting more at place x. If this is the case for anyone, you can pm me any values and I'll update them in the list and database.

Also, the CAG Trade-In Value Tracker is now live and accessible from the main navigation.



Instructions on finding games in the database and inputting the values from different sections can be found in my blog post here: http://www.cheapassg...log.php?b=14143. I would put the entire post in the thread but this is already kind of a large post.

*DISCLAIMER* These prices and dates are supplied by the CAG community, and as such there aren't always regular updates on every title. The dates at the edge of each game give an idea of when it last received that amount. If the quote is older than 3 days, the likelihood is that the value went down. Not always the case but something to keep in mind. If there is no date by the game, it means it hasn't been traded in since io originally started the thread. These values are always just a way to give an idea of what to expect, not actual returns. There is no guarantee involved that these prices are 100% accurate.

Man, was looking for a good promo to offload a few 360 titles from a certain retailer (wink, wink) but even with the tiered trade, it's like pennies and Qubed doesn't even have a value lol. Maybe I'll just use the credit to re-up my GI sub.

I'm sure there will be an ad for next week, they just haven't made it accessible yet. I knew the weeks of me getting them super early were going to end. About on schedule too.

will gba games have the 30% bonus even if you don't use it as one of the 5 qualifying games to get the bonus? (e.g. trade 5 ps3 games and 1 gba game)

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

It's not listed on their website, but in last weeks ad the only games that were covered were 360/Wii/PS3/DS/PSP. No GBA/PS2/GC listed. I'll make a note to that in the first post. Could have sworn that info was on the GameStop website but I guess not. I haven't traded in any of those 3 systems to know if it actually applies to them or not.

JP - on gamestop's twitter it says "Want to get exclusive pre-owned and trade offers? Text "TWEET" to GMSTP (46787) and you're in!"

Not sure if this is a special offer or not for those who text them, but i would assume so?

may want to add this to op if so.

Anyone with extra copies of games from the TRU/halo card, trade them in? (fracture, stranglehold, sonic, ratatouille, condemned 2, spiderwick, bee movie, bionic commando...) I never trade games in so i am little confused on the whole thing. If I can get like 10 bucks for 5 games, they give you a extra 30%, 3 bucks? if so thats pretty sad :(

Actually, my store does take the DS lites without a serial, though this is YMMV with some. The policy is for every system but the DS Lites and Original if I remember right.

When I went to trade mine in, I made the argument that you can't physically play the thing without holding it and that you can't hold it without your fingers resting there. They called a manager out, I pleaded my case, and he made "an exception" but made no promises for the next time. So its definitely YMMV, but be prepared to make a case out of it.
