Well I already have $5 down on it so I get the code regardless. I just wasn't sure how big of dip the TIVs usually get on these 50% bonus days (i.e. do they drop them so low that 30% ends up being a better deal on the higher TIV). Thank you.


Plus, if the games you're trading in are trading in for less than 7, you might as well use the trade 3 get 10 bonus.

I'll just say what everyone is thinking....you should had paired each 3 games with less $7 into the trade 3 get extra $10, and kept the ones that are more than $7 to trade on Friday when there is supposedly a 50%(60% with powerup) trade in bonus. Sorry to sound like a broken record player, I can see that your still in training, my padawan.


I already knew that the 50% promo was going on but I couldn't wait any longer to buy the PS Vita. I wanted it now! Lol

I'm only really missing out on about, more or less, 20$ which isn't that big of a deal to me. If my math is correct that is..

Let's see: (with 60% bonus)
Uncharted 3 = 22 + 13 = 35
FFXIII-2 = 22 + 13 = 35
GT3 = 12 + 7 = 19
Dead Space 2 = 9 + 5 = 14
GoW3 = 11 + 6 = 17
Total = 120$

(with my impatient method -nothing special-)
Uncharted 3 = 27
FFXIII-2 = 27
GT3 = 16
DS2 = 13
GoW3 = 15
Total = 98

So yeah, about 20$. Not that big of a deal for me but I understand that as a true CAG, you would want the most bang for your buck lol. Curse my impulse buyer mannerisms.

I traded in with the $10 bonus as well. Didn't feel like waiting for something that isn't 100% confirmed. I really don't have anything to buy from gamestop just couldn't get rid of some of the games so I figure might as well take advantage of something rather than letting my games sit there and drop values by days.

Edit: in regard to picking up KI early.

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

wow nice. so its a pretty universal rule that the trade value drops everytime theres a deal like this?

now question, does the 50% bonus STACK with the trade 3 for 10? probably not, im just wondering since 2 of the 3 games im trading probably dropped in trade value :(

Doesn't stack. System will pick whatever is better (higher) for you.

Ah okay, well i wonder again, since mass effect 3 is guaranteed at 30 trade in until the 4th or something... does the 50% add onto that? if so that'd be awesome.

I have a ME3 to trade and wondering how much I would get for it.

Wow. Surprised GS is running the 50% bonus until 4/1. Thought it was only going to be until Sunday. Why couldn't they do this the weekend when everyone had a bunch of flips from BB?

No, sadly those two promos don't stack. You'll get 30 plus 10% PUR Bonus if applicable.

it's 23 base I think so you'd get 36.8 if you have 10% PUR. sadly GameStop is shit and makes the 30 trade a promo by itself.
