Better call GS to confirm TIV before you open them, since Batman goes on sale at GS tomorrow as well.

I did 1x xbox and 1x ps3 and they allowed it. If they don't just go to another GS. If you look at it this way you can buy 2x batman from BB for 30 bucks and trade them to GS for 30 a piece...thats if the value doesn't tank Sunday and if you have +10% PUR card and you are trading in PS3 versions.

Well off to bed, good luck to everyone in the morning! Thanks to sp00ge, I forgot GS is selling batman on sale tomorrow too... hopefully it doesn't drop, at least not by too much!

If you report TIV tomorrow, remember to say whether it is PS3 or 360!

People traded it in droves b/c it was the Holiday bundle disc game (Reach was a download code.) GS sells it for $15 used right now, and they barely sell any of the copies they get.

You could have gotten a quarter more if you traded in your $4.00, $6.50, and $9.00 game separately lol.

Quick question about the promotions combining together.

If I traded in a number of games that qualified for the 3/$10 bonus, mixed in with games that wouldn't qualify for the 3/$10 bonus and just get the 50% bonus, the computer should pick the games that were applicable to the 3/$10 bonus and give the $3.33 per game and not just the 50%, right?

I know when I traded in a few games last Friday, games that had TIVs of greater than $2 had the $3.33 bonus and others that weren't applicable didn't. This time around with a lot more games traded in, it only applied the 50% bonus and not the 3/$10 bonus on the 9 games that it was applicable on.

The rep at the counter kept saying that the computer would pick the best option, though I would expect it to pick the 3/$10 bonus on the 3-game groups.

I think that if I broke them out in two groups, it wouldn't have mattered, though I assumed the register would work like it did last week.

Any thoughts?


The computer runs through each promo it has, ONE AT A TIME, and applies it to your entire transaction. It will then pick the ONE promo that maximizes your credit and apply that. It is not smart enough to group your games in a way to maximize money by combining multiple promos. You'll have to do that yourself...

So yes, the computer does give you the best option, but only in the simplest sense ... one promo at a time. If you want multiple promos to maximize your trade in, you'll have to split up your games yourself.

But there's no difference between an S-video cable for an old system or a current system. It's just a generic type of cable, like HDMI or USB. And neither store looked for any kind of branding; they just looked at the connection type and said "We don't take these." Of course, for what it's worth, the store I visited yesterday (with the $0.70 trade in) also wouldn't take my additional mini-USB charger cables (the kind used for PS3 controllers) because "they're for computers and cameras and stuff".

The difference between them is the the end of the cable that connects to the system(s). What I mean is that cables for last gen systems are often not compatible with current gen systems. A cable for a system they don't sell anymore (like XBOX) or an older system they don't promote or take trade-ins on (like GC) is something they don't want as it doesn't have much resale value. Like you though, I feel that the GS employee betrayed his/her ignorance or lack of caring with that comment.

The computer runs through each promo it has, ONE AT A TIME, and applies it to your entire transaction. It will then pick the ONE promo that maximizes your credit and apply that. It is not smart enough to group your games in a way to maximize money by combining multiple promos. You'll have to do that yourself...

So yes, the computer does give you the best option, but only in the simplest sense ... one promo at a time. If you want multiple promos to maximize your trade in, you'll have to split up your games yourself.

Thanks for this explanation, it is the best I have read to date. :applause: I have often wondered why and how the computer decides what promotions to apply. This will help the next time I want to take advantage of more than one promotion on a visit and need to explain why to an employee who insists that the computer will look out for my best interests.
