I'm sorry to be the obvious question guy, but if I go to GS today and upgrade my Edge card to the PowerUp Pro program I should be able to get the 50% extra credit correct?

50% trade up doesn't take away from the fact that you still have to pay MSRP for anything and everything at GameStop. I'll still do my trade-ins via amazon or goozex.

But then again, many people have been complaining about NorAm (the distributor that handles Amazon's trade ins) damaging their games. And Goozex is far from perfect. As douchy as many of the employees are at Gamestop I have never had one outright break one of my games when I traded it in. If you can take advantage of the trade-in offers then you can get better deals from Gamestop than those other sources right up front. I got more from them for games like Fable 3 and Black Ops ($40!) recently than people would be willing to even pay me on here or eBay.

Had to run out and take advantage of that Madden 11 price :D

Couple other values before/after 50% + 10%

Resonance of Fate (360) $11.00 > $17.60 (more than I paid Newegg for it)
Divinity II (360) $6.00 > $9.60

That's why I just buy MS points there, which are rarely buyable under MSRP anyway.

so you're saying when I buy used games at buy 2 get 1 free, and then trade them in with a 60% bonus.. I'm paying MSRP for anything and everything and not making out well?

Yeah I got screwed the one time I did Amazon's trade in thing so I refuse now to do it or Best Buy online because of NorAm. I've heard of people locally here in STL having to wait 30 minutes to trade in at Best Buy stores so that seems to be out also.

For Goozex it takes a minimum of 4-6 months to get any new console release. I was in the top 10 of the queue for NHL 11 when it came out in Sept. and I just now got it this week. Plus that site is dying from lack of trades of recent stuff. It's awesome to get older stuff or portable stuff (1/2 to 2/3 of my PSP UMD collection has been from Goozex) but for anything recent on consoles I hope you have a lot of patience.

BTW I think the other GS trade thread should be merged with this thread. I initially did not realize I posted this info into the thread where JP does not updates the prices for the tracker. Just a suggestion, carry on.

Several people have quoted 25 for cod black ops but the op still has $18 listed. Did someone post 18 today and I missed it meaning it went down or was that a mistype?

They have great prices on CEs too.

Thinking about trading in Fable III since I haven't even beaten II yet.

Is anyone else baffled by Gamestop's weekly email which says get 50% more trade in credit on any games traded in between now and Sunday 3/6 only to then have a weekly coupon which offers an extra 25% trade in credit on games traded towards purchasing MvC3?

Are people really that dumb or is GS that dumb?

Will gamestop actually give you 75% if you ask?

No. Promos don't stack. It would require a manual override which doesn't happen all that often.

Noooo! That other thread is like ten pages of people bitching about Gamestop, with maybe a handful of quotes sprinkled in. Let them have that thread to bitch in, and keep this thread relatively clean, please!

That reminds me, I need to pop over there and pull out the prices quoted over there. I have no problem with that thread staying separate. As you say it is full of people saying you get more here for X and Y. We get enough of that in this thread already. Granted it's not as bad as it used to be, but I would prefer to keep as much out as possible.

Also, updated lists and database.

Gamestop sells that game for $18 or $20 used now so that makes sense. Before Christmas, they sold the game for $30 and I think the TIV was a little higher. Only DS games I know of that get over $10 base are any of the Mario ones and maybe Tetris DS still.

I wonder if it is better to trade in black ops for 33.75 over at amazon or 38 at gamestop. If I get edge card, would they give me extra 10%?
