Yeah, it definitely will have a lot of resell value. Even if I'd have saved all my points since the moment I joined, I wouldn't have enough.

I'm sorry, but I downloaded the coupon abd I still have absolutely NO idea how this deal works. On the coupon it says "25% power trade bonus credit on any pre-order." I assume this "power trade bonus credit" has something to do with credit gained from trade-ins; but if so, why not state this more definitively,as they do on their trade-in page:

Power Trade: Get a 25% trade bonus on any games traded toward a new copy of Gears of War 3, Madden NFL 2012 or RAGE.

But regardless, what is meant by "pre-order"? Do they mean that this credit can be applied towards a game that had already been pre-ordered? or is it valid only through the process of "pre-ordering"? That the term "pre-order" can refer to 2 seperate things can be easily demonstrated by comparing the two following statements:

1. I'd like to pre-order the new Ratchet & Clank game.
2. I'm here to pick up my pre-order.

Do they mean one? Do they mean both? THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!

It's really not that hard to understand, especially if you've ever been in a Gamestop before.

Pre-order [pri-awr-der] verb.
1. Reserve a copy of a game to be released in the future by putting down $5 or more.

Buying the game isn't a pre-order. The pre-order is the fact that you have it reserved. You can't use this coupon if you already have the game pre-ordered (even in the same transaction you're picking it up).

You have to pre-order a game in the same transaction you're trading your games in. Exactly like the bonus 25% for Madden and Rage, but for any game.

Hey guys, I got in my grab bag today like I thought I would. And... Well...


Gamestop. This is not a bag. I was a little thrown off at first, and ended up cutting my middle finger as I tried to pry off the plastic cap before realizing it was stapled in place with those obnoxious big staples. After properly removing it, I removed the contents and here's what was inside.


1. Game Informer Epic Mickey Poster.
2. Red Gamestop Powerup Rewards Water Bottle. Made of metal.
3. Tactics Ogre... Cards of some sort.
4. Marvel vs. Capcom 3... Move cards or something. Whatever the pre-order bonus was.
5. XXL ISA Athletic Department T-Shirt. I think it's a Killzone shirt.

Overall, I got more than I expected, and better than what I expected. I may place a second order just to see what else they have to throw in there. Looking forward to hearing what everyone else got in theirs. :]


I got items 1,4,5

I also got a purple Super scribblenuts ear warmers. Not sure if I'm happy with it or not.

New Steal of the Week is up. Not too shabby! Let's hope the value of the console holds with all these trade in bonuses, haha.

Do you have to buy a new console? If not, I'll trade-in for the credit now and trade in some more later and get a new slim for cheap.

I would love that sword, but my account it only at 50k points, would take $1000 in trades then used purchases to meet that 80,000 point requirement. I'd have it if I hadnt gotten a few of the 10k pt items like the vegas kit (have 100k lifetime pts).

The one for trading in an old xbox 360 or ps3 towards a new one. However it does not stack.

Steal of the Week updated. Lame, but at least it's something everyone can use.

For all the points hoarders out there... this was just added to the "coming soon" pile. Never played Warhammer, but this looks epic enough to want.


I hope whomever redeems this receives a complimentary pair of jorts, as seen in the photo description.

I was so pissed at gamestop over the deus ex snafu but if I can get the power up $50 bonus to combine with the $40 bonus I'd do it. I have an extra 360 that i use rarely.

Someone in the other tiv thread said they got it to work with an override. I'm due for a PUR renewal so maybe I can bargain with them for stacking the coupons. $130 for an xbox 360 fat is incredible.

yeah i know that. Hopefully the rewards renewal and a few pre orders with the credit gives the rep some incentive to override.

So the OP says 8/22 -8/28 for the PUR $50 coupon but it ends 9/11. Either I'm not understanding or 8/28 is the cutoff for the coupon, but coupon is valid till 9/11?

The Steal of the Week only lasts one week. The coupon may redeemed up until 9/11.

Thanks. I need to go sign up for PUR card this weekend then. Need to dump that Falcon that';s doing nothing but sitting in my closet in it's box. I really hope I can get this to stack with the $40 extra trade-in promo. $130 for a 360 seems very reasonable. ($40 TIV, $40 promo, $50 PUR SotW)

Gotta get some Gears 3 credit. w00t

Yeah, they don't stack normally. You'll have to get an override and that's really YMMV.

Are the PUR rewards coupons that can be purchased (i.e. $10 off a transaction) count as thought it were cash or as a promo?

I was thinking of getting two of the $10 off any used game to combine with a b2g1 on used games promo coupon. Would this be possible?
