*whew* OK, I've got a bunch of TIVs to report:

3/17/12 (quoted)

:360:
Mercenaries 2: $1.25

:3ds:
Dead or Alive: Dimensions: $6

:ds:
Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime: $1
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker: $1.25
Monster Tale: $3

3/18/12 (traded)

:ps3:
Batman: Arkham City: $22
Infamous 2: $16
Resident Evil 5: $7
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing: $6

:360:
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction: $2.50

:ds:
Kirby: Mass Attack: $11
Mario Kart DS: $13
Yoshi's Island DS: $9

I wanted to trade Infamous 2 and B:AC towards Prototype 2 for the 30% bonus and use the remaining six titles for the 3/$10 promo, so I wanted to do separate trade-in transactions, but based on my receipt, it looks like everything got the 30% bump. :bomb: For the three DS titles, this isn't so bad ($0.10 difference), but I lost out on about $5 for the other three games (SC:C, RE5, and Sega All-Stars Racing). If I went back (or to another GS) and showed that I lost out on that amount and that I didn't get the promotion I wanted, do you think I could get that $5 somehow? I mean, $5 is $5...


doubtful, and knowing their excuses it would probably start with "the computer picks the best deal automatically..."

I work at a GameStop and I dont think they'd be able to fix it unless you went in the same day. If you went to a different GS to fix it, they wouldn't be able to help you, you would have to go back to the original one you traded in all your games at.

I traded in my wired headset in Jan. The girl looked at it and said, "Oh good it looks new". I told her it was part of a set I didn't need, so it was never used. She was told to be careful taking them in because a lot of them were being traded in with a very poor condition. She mentioned that the foam ear pieces were normally nasty.

I guess they decided the headsets weren't worth taking in at all.


i had a similar experience as you. i think trading in official headsets is a ymmv thing, unless gamestop officially took the listing off their computers nationwide.

i say this because about a year ago i traded a brand new official wired headset that came with my xbox elite that i was never going to use. The manager mentioned most stores usually don't take them (not sure if this is a corporate policy) because most used headsets are unsellable since the earpieces are worn, crusty, and nasty. he said he takes them at his store if they are/look new but other stores is usually up to the manager.

FYI, Bulletstorm for the 360 dropped below $2 (to $1.50) so it didn't qualify for the 3 for $10 extra promo

If I remember correctly, gamestop had a power saver sale last year which included a b2g1 in April. I'm sure hoping there's one soon so I can use up this credit.

This has happened to me twice a few years back. The first time I didn't notice until 1 or 2 days later and was just out of luck. The second time I noticed right away before I even got home. I went back to the store and was able to deal with the exact same employees. They corrected the error while commenting that the computer usually picks the best deal automatically. Since then I have ALWAYS heavily monitored the trade in process. Every once in a while I or the GS associate will catch the computer not acting in my best interest and it will be adjusted to do so. Of course, in situations like these it always helps to be calm and polite but firm in your stance. I hope your situation resolved itself nicely.

Sorry for the newb question since I dont pre- order from Gamestop much.

So I have two 2 pre-orders at two different Gamestop stores.

What happens if I dont pick up Games when its released? Does it cancel or is the $5 just out in space?

How difficult is it to cancel at the store? Do I need to go to that store to cancel?

^Your credit will remain at the store until you switch it over to a new pre-order or just ask for it back. It's easy to cancel, but the employees won't be happy because I believe it counts as a -1 pre-order for them. They will try to have you roll it over to a different pre-order.

Yes, you need to go to the store you have the pre-order at to get it back, cancel, buy something else, etc.

I sure hope so, although I'm expecting a ton of TIVs to tank. If Arkham City's TIV survives this, then I don't know what I'll do with myself.

Thanks. How long can I wait? I want to cancel one and the other use it on Resident Evil 6 when they accept it.

Traded in about 150 worth of games today. Although GS employees are usually cool around here, today this one girl was just in a bad mood. When I asked her to do different transactions (since I knew I had 3 games that paired better with the 3/$10 rather than 30%) she got an attitude. Insisted that the computer always does the 3/10 since its a better deal.

Funny thing is the two different receipts show different promo codes, which shows that the first transaction for 111 got the 30% since I used it for Kid Icarus. Didn't feel like pointing out to her since I think she is a assistant manager. Last thing I need is a ban.

even if the TIV holds for ME2 and Rage, it isn't that much of a price difference for 50% and trade 3 get $10 bonus.

If so I think it might be time to finally get rid of some games that I've been iffy on trading in lately. I know I won't play them probably at all but its always. Well maybe I'll pick it up again

Just need to suck it up and not look at it as a hit to my collection. Trying to streamline it anyways

I can't help but think the 50% bonus might fall through. I'm not doubting DCpinoy's information - heck, I really appreciate him coming to let us know.

But in the last year, we've seen quite a few posts about an upcoming 50% bonus with no pre-order/minimum amount/certain games/etc; and everytime it ends up being a local deal with a certain franchised store, or only select stores near a Best Buy, or an opening store, etc.

I can't remember a no-restrictions 50% bonus happening on a national level in the last year, at least.

That said, I hope I'm wrong!! :)

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

I'm expecting LA Noire to dip in value as well. With a PUR card, you'd get $16 for it assuming the value stays. I highly doubt that it will though.
