Sadly I got hit with a phantom $3 refurb fee in Civ Revolution and $1 on Wolfenstein even though the discs were flawless. Always sucks to not see it till after the fact.

what's the difference between putting remaining GS credit on a giftcard, rather than your PUR card?

Of course you have to "buy" new hardware, but no one ever said you have to keep it ;)


Does your receipt show the extra $50 as a bonus? Are you sure they wouldn't just subtract $50 from the refund if you tried to do a return?

I think there'll likely be another $50 giftcard deal before the CECH 3000 comes out, which basically cancels this deal out unless you can return the system for full credit.

The problem with a giftcard is that you can't apply it to the system purchase. I'd rather not have to deal with Gamestop after getting the system.

Confirm I traded my 360 in today, 60 base 50 bonus for total 110$.

note though, first place i took it to, the guy took the faceplate off and saw the console did not have the seal intact and didnt take it, 2nd place the guy did not check until after he rang it up so I guess he figured it was too late and didnt say anything so they might check for the seal

I just meant that if you waiting for a gift card offer, you'd end up spending more money out of your pocket in the long run, since you couldn't use the giftcard you'd get for buying the system until after the transaction is over.

Er... its just a standard giftcard like any other store. You can use it to buy anything Gamestop sells. I'd rather just not have that and instead pay less cash instead. Unless Gamestop gives out a GC worth more than $50 with the system, this is probably the best system trade in deal they'll have for quite some time, especially with what the base price is at.

THAT'S THE PLAN ---> unless you can return the system for full credit.

Today, I told the guy I wanted to know the value of each game before I traded. He scanned them all then told me the total so I had to ask him about each one. He did not seem to like the 40% bonus coupon since it did not require the almighty preorder. I know their job is to push the preorders but this guy was the not giving up after probably a dozen "no" answers. I wanted God of War III that is on sale for $14.99 and he tried to sell me a "new" unsealed copy so I ended up going to another store to get a sealed one. While at that store I traded in the 2 SF IV games along with Enslaved to get the $10 bonus so I ended up with about $152 in credit so I was pleased.

I researched Amazon's (good condition) trade-in values before I went so I have their values in parentheses beside the the Gamestop base trade-in values:

Posted Image Star Wars The Force Unleashed II - 7 (10.50)
Posted Image God of Collection - 9 (9.00)
Posted Image Street Fighter IV - 4 (4.00)
Posted Image Blur - 8 (8.00)
Posted Image Battlefield Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition - 16 (17.50)
Posted Image Star Wars The Force Unleashed II - 7 (14.00)
Posted Image Transformers War for Cybertron - 9 (10.25)
Posted Image Dance Central - 20 (20.00)
Posted Image Street Fighter IV - 2.50 (1.60)
Posted Image Enslaved: Odyssey to the West - 5 (5.00)
Posted Image Kirby's Epic Yarn - 10 (10.00)

Amazon is more stringent about trade-in game (good) condition and they require case/manual plus for it not scratched all to Hell.

The bad news is you just jinxed yourself and your 360 is going to RROD in about five minutes.

Sadly I got hit with a phantom $3 refurb fee in Civ Revolution


You should offer to teach them disc cleaning in exchange for literacy until Gandhi threatens to declare war unless you give him 500 gold.

God, Civ Rev is awesome.

Well those HD go for about 30-40 on Ebay, but I'm sure GS gets a ton of defective HD traded into them, and since they don't fully check test them when they take them in, they just give everyone a screwed up price and in the long run the working ones will make up the profits for the shitty ones.

Because they have the right to refuse any trade for any reason. They chose to not accept yours. The store could have easily taken the HDMI cable out of their system or they could not allow it to be traded or too many people were scamming the HDMI or.... Think you can see there could be dozens o reasons.
