you didn't organize your trades well...

You should have done the 30% bonus for preording with the two ACs and Uncharted3 :shame:...

EDIT:
okay just the Batmans separately and trade/sell either MW2 or U2 elsewhere



I would have prolly made MAYBE $10 more on ebay but that would be luck + fees + shipping... also I did try to get extra 30% for a pre-order (resident evil raccoon city) but when the manager tried it would not ring up on the computer :( so don't know

I would guess the 3/$10 promo kept conflicting.

AC? There is no trade bonus for preordering Assassin's Creed III atm. Anyway, yes you can always cancel or move preorder deposits.

Doesn't the receipt only show what you actually earned not just the base only?

Yes but you just subtract the bonus amounts from what the total was for the game.

How would I know that though? Example... I go in and trade three games for $40. How would I figure out the base value if all had was the receipt?

Okay here's an example of a previous trade of mine (How it goes on receipt):

Fallout New Vegas -8.84

Bonus: 3.34 (30%)
Bonus: 0.50 (10%)


3.34 + 0.50 = 3.84

8.84 - 3.84 = 5

Base TIV = $5

WTH, I'm not even following that math. How is 3.34, 30% of 5?

If you know the bonus, and percentage, just divide.

A $0.50 bonus from PUR (10%), then 0.5 / 0.1 = $5.00 base.

:360: Headset is $3
:360: 20gb is $2

Does anyone know the price of the 360 vision camera? I've never used it and may never will.

Also the 30% preorder bonus is still alive. They won't apply it even if you do pre-order. You need to inform them it is in their marketing material that they need to scan.

B:AC $23 base

Regular deal would net you $30.30

30% deal would net you $32.2 ($1.9 difference; x2 = $3.8; x3 = $5.7; x4 = $7.6, etc...)

I just cleaned up at Gamestop flipping $5.98 Target clearance games. With the 10% for PUR and the $10 bonus for 3 games I got $70 in credit for $36 dollars worth of clearance games.

Notable games for $5.98 at target are Marvel Super Hero Squad (3DS), Big League Sports (Kinect) and Sniper: Ghost Warrior (360). All have good TIV.

I can't imagine how it could be explained any more clearly that this. You'd seriously have to have flunked yourself off the short bus to not understand how to subract from the total to find out the base value. It's all RIGHT THERE on your receipt.

True that or Golden Lemonz should have said

Total amount - bonus 1 - bonus 2 = base tiv

8.84 - 3.34 - .5 = 5

Like nas6034 said, I should have just said base= Total TIV - Bonus 1 (30%. 3/10 etc.) - (PUR 10%)

$3.34 isn't the 30%, that is the trade 3 get $10 bonus.


Oh, that's nice to now. I never even caught that I thought I got the 30% because the total cedit I got for the whole trade was my estimated amount from doing the math with the 30% bonus.

True that or Golden Lemonz should have said

Total amount - bonus 1 - bonus 2 = base tiv

8.84 - 3.34 - .5 = 5



^this is a better equation

Has anyone traded in any iPods yet? On their site, it says PowerUp Reward members get a 30% bonus until the end of today. When I went in, they said I had to be a PowerUp Reward Pro member to get it so I'm not sure. I did it anyways since I traded in several things.
