Well I was looking for somebody to have tried it before I went today, but nobody had so far. Two things...

First - All games do qualify including the old PS2

Second - Looks like the computer is allowing any game with at least $2 trade in value

Sadly I took 8 games and thought it was going to be 7+ games, but in fact you must hit the magic 3, 5, 7 on the nose. No bonus on the 4th, 6th, or 8th+ game. Oh Well.

Traded in just 30 min ago

:ps2:
Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - $4
Kingdom Hearts - $2.50
Kingdom Hearts II - $6
GTA San Andreas - $6
Street Fighter Anniversary Collection - $3.50
Street Fighter Alpha Collection - $2.50
Mega Man X Collection - $4
Final Fantasy X - $2.50

Decided to keep Final Fantasy X and after $35 and PUR ended up with $66.35

Basically $9.50 a piece for games I can turn around and buy again for $11 a piece during any B2G1, as there are never shortages of these in my area.


Eh? You're still losing money if you do that.

Eh? You're still losing money if you do that.

Key word is B2G1 free
9.50x3=28.50
11x2=22.00 + Tax if applicable.
It's like 6.50 or less for every three games.
Not really worth it cause you have to trade in 7 games but he's not really losing money on it.

Actually the games I traded in average out to $17.50 at the moment so your line should look like this
9.50x3=28.50
17.50x2=35.00x.9PUR=31.50 + Tax=$33ish
Which is like $11 a game. That's why I said it, but it was just an example.

Having the credit now, to play something I want is better to me then holding on to games I am basically collecting, when I know I won't have any issue picking them up again.

I do not plan on picking up a few of those again as I have moved on and upgraded (street fighter games) however, unlike others on CAG, I refuse to trade in games for $1 or $2 when I feel there may be any bit of a chance I'd play them again. This promo allows a lot of people to dump those $2 games that you would feel pretty crappy about only getting $2 for, but are more then happy to take a 250% bonus in the form of an extra $5 per game.

The PS2 is nearly dead and I don't see Gamestop continuing to take those games in much longer anyway. I expect to see more B2G2 on those, like they have done in the recent past, and I will likely grab the Kingdom Hearts games and San Andreas again if they do. I still have hope that Square Enix and Rockstar will get smart and give us HD Collections of Kingdom Hearts and GTA and then my trades will end up being awesome as I would dump them for pennies once I upgraded.

Oh whoops, I guess that's a my bad for reading that wrong.

I'm just curious as to why you didn't trade those in during the Target's trade 2 for $20 promo?
Is it the fact that you had to buy a game $29.99+ and had to use that coupon for that day?

I had no interest in buying anything then. I like to sit on GS credit and wait for B2G1 sales and either pick up things I want then, or convert credit to BB credit and buy Kindle cards to get Amazon credit.

Who says the economy sucks? People just need to get out there do some stuff.

FYI: I have a Target, Best Buy, and Gamestop all in one shopping plaza literally 100 yards apart. I can't believe more people don't buy clearance games and move them around for credit like I do.

I thought he meant that, after the B2G1 promo is taken into account, each game would price out to $11.

From 5.12.12 (Before the bonuses)
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (3DS): $14
Assassin's Creed II (360): $4
LA Noire (360): $6
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (360): $10
Ninja Gaiden 3 (360): $23
Saints Row The Third (360): $21
Syndicate (360): $17
Xbox 360 Live Vision: $2

With bonuses for reserving Max Payne 3 and Ghost Recon, it warped to $135.20. Pretty good considering I got of most of those very cheap, the $32.20 I got for Ninja Gaiden is basically what I paid for it.
Ok then, knuckle up.

Fallout New Vegas is $7.99 for both ps3 and xbox 360. You need to pricematch to bestbuy.com if u get the 360 one in store.

Star Wars Force Unleashed II is $7.99 in bestbuy.

Halo 3: ODST is 7.99 on bestbuy.com.

WIth this week buy 2 get 1 free u are look at turning $16 into about $30+ after the promo.

I think I might have been screwed over by a fast talking manager. He said the flyer states that the minimum TIV for the $35 bonus is $5. I don't see this requirement anywhere on their website.

Plus looking at the receipt only 7 of the 20 some games I traded in have the $5 bonus applied. Despite asking if I could get the $35 bonus for each 7 games and being told that the computer would do it automatically.

I wonder if they can or would fix this if I went back tomorrow. It's ink a difference of $20 or so, but it still matters.

Yeah it sounds like your store is a little fucked up. I don't see the $5 min anywhere either.

Got a bit screwed today, traded in GTAIV and the total added up correctly. Checked my receipt and the guy gave me a $2 repair bullshit fee. Since I thought GTAIV would get $10 I didn't notice, GTAIV got $12 checking my receipt.

Going back tomorrow and they probably won't care. I wonder if calling the customer service number would help.

I feel like your issue seems to be a somewhat common occurrence here on CAG. There are always people not realizing they lost out on money until after they see their receipt.

Doesn't everybody have their trades pop up on the little credit card swiper machines. I watch mine every time and you see both the base and the bump. If they put a refurb on anything that will show up too. I just don't understand how people sign off on the trades without at least saying can I see my trade totals. I always confirm everything on the screen looks right, then they confirm it and the signature screen pops up.

I am not trying to say GS does a good job of these things (clearly your manager should at least know the promo and how it is supposed to work), but at the same time if you sign off for your trades without really thinking about your total or seeing the breakdown I really don't see how you can think they should have to go back and fix it.

From Gamestop.com's Trade-in page regarding the 3/5/7 deal:

Games with a trade value less than $3.00 are excluded from this offer.


So he was full of shit there...

As far as being told it would apply to all, see if they'll adjust and credit it, if not, ask for the DM's information and do that little survey they push on you. Results will happen.
