Did you only get 10% PUR bonus on L4D? Or did it give you 30% for trading in more than 7?

I was trading in some games yesterday and the guy told me I had saved over $2,500. He said it was the most he had ever seen. No way I spent that much but he said it counts trade-ins as well.


Yeah the register now not only prompts the cashier with a view of the last 5 purchases, but it also shows a year to date PUR savings/trade in bonus now. I went in today and the cashier said "wow you have saved so much money it says $1,200 year to date for you." She commented how that was the largest she's seen so far. #2 was at $800. I guess the bright side is that the number is supposed to reset in January.

GS doesn't care what version of the old 360 hardware it is, everything is either an old style 360 or a Slim.

Got it, thanks.

So glad I did not trade my core style 250GB HD for $20. I took it apart (easy) and bought a empty case on Amazon for $5. Popped the sucker in and put it in my nephew's slim since their HD crashed and it works like a charm. Just an FYI for people.

This is the one I bought and it worked great. It had an actual box and everything. I got it from Best Deals as the 3rd party seller.

So what's the current best deal for trading in a 360 slim and PS3 slim toward a Wii U?

I thought I saw something in store about additional hardware trade in when trading in toward a Wii U, but I didn't see it in the OP....

Thanks

Hey CAG experts, I am a PowerUp Pro member or whatever and I am looking to trade in regular 3DS + other games at GameStop.

I just want to check my math based on deals and PowerUp additional trade in values:

- 3DS: 45.00 (Double Hardware = 90.00)
- MK7: 25.00 (alleged PowerUp value)
- NSMB2: 25.00 (alleged PU value)
- MKds: 14.00
- MK wii: 23.00 (alleged PU value)
- SM Galaxy: 7.00

Does this look kosher? I can still take advantage of the 20% 5 games tiered deal too, right? Also, would I still be eligible to apply some of that credit for the 30% pre-order deal or how does that work?

Any help would really be appreciated and if this is not in the right place then please move it to where questions/advice should go. I just want to make sure I am doing the math right before I go in there and maybe make a potential mistake.

looks about right but bear in mind you won't collect the 20% 5games or the 30% Preorder since the Powerup Rewards games don't stack with other offers. They will however stack with 10% from Pro card.

Thanks man!

That's cool, the biggest thing for me is the double hardware bonus so as long as that is 90.00 credit for the 3DS then I'll go ahead with it.

Alright I took one for the team. Traded in 3 games not on the PowerUps list along with some on the PowerUps list. Good news is you can mix the tiered trade promo with the PowerUps trade promo. The bad news is that the games on the PowerUps list will NOT count towards your tiers. I only got the bonus 10% for the 3 non-list games. So it cost me $7.60 but now we know (maybe we already did).

Anyway 10/19

L4D2 $15
Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions $12
Orange Box: $11

Thanks! You will also need a Torx screw driver set unless you are willing to risk damage to the HD by breaking the old case apart. I picked one up for $6 at Home Depot. I should have had one anyway.

Its listed on the first page of the thread. I traded my motion plus for $60 with bonus a few days ago. They know the price drop is coming.

At best you would get a refurb fee. If not they may not take it at all since its missing. I have heard of them not taking damaged wii's in this thread.

If it hasn't been mentioned, you apparently get the 10% PUR bonus (in this case $2.50) on the games base price along with the extra $ PUR members-only bonus.

RE6 is trading in for $40 at best buy. Will probably trade in for even more next week.
