The manager at my local GameStop said they got an e-mail regarding 3DS XL upgrades. He said it would start Sun. August 19th.

I don't remember all the prices but it should at least give us an idea.

Ds Lite - $40
? - $65
3DS - $100

I assume DSi is $65 and DSiXL is $85 but I don't remember exactly as I only have a Lite and 3DS.

All stores or just some?

Also hope you can still get those prices if you trade after buying the XL, since no one seems to allow transfers instore

This sounds great to me, I left exactly $100 on my pre-order and I have both a DSi XL and a 3DS. If the DSi XL gets at least $75 it's gone, and if I had gotten $50 or less for the DSi XL, then the 3DS would have gone, and I figured they would give $100 for it.

I have to admit I was getting very nervous there would be no promo at all, and then I was going to have to decide if getting only $75 for my 3DS was worth it. Glad it's not going to come to that.

I'd be surprised if this wasn't national. He pulled up and read the e-mail straight up and he didn't mention transfers which sucks. He did tell me I could take mine to the neighboring McDonalds and transfer over their WiFi. God knows how long that will take.

Apparently it only takes 15-45 minutes for the transfer on average.

I'm a pretty long term customer at my store, was hoping i could somehow talk them into letting me leave some collateral worth the same value, but i doubt that will happen XD.

Guess i'll be trading in a ton of games (Despite not having finished them yet), and just put the 3DS value toward some September stuff.

Awesome, was hoping for at least $100 for 3DS! Too bad we can't get the extra $25 hardware stacked, but I have just over $100 in trade that I planned just for this!

On a side note, my 3DS has a PRP with GameStop. Any way I can use it to get an XL for much cheaper?

I guess I won't be upgrading my 3DS to the 3DS XL. I was hoping they'd give me more than $100 towards an XL, but spending $100 more just for bigger screens doesn't seem worth it.

I saw that email as well. Forgot to check what you actually got for each system trade in towards the 3DS XL though.

Any idea if you can trade in two or three different model systems during these type of promos?

I told the guy at my GameStop I'd be trading in a DS Lite and a 3DS and he said "Awesome so that would be $140" so I'd assume that's totally acceptable.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but does anyone know of any free shipping promo codes for Gamestop online?

I want to pick up a 3-Pack Skylander set for my son. I tried using "SAVER" and it said I needed to have more than $24.99. I tossed a couple of cheap pre-owned games for filler and it still didn't take. Does the Skylander set not qualify under that promo code?

God I hate Gamestop...

I doubt it because I never even owned all those games before. You just have to be a PowerUp Pro member.

Go to a store and ask them to print you out a code for Free value shipping. It costs nothing and you get 7 days to use it from when its printed. That's what I did to get Kingdom Hearts Mark of Mastery Edition shipped free.

And that will work on ANY item? I'm thinking "SAVER" code isn't working because the Skylander Set is categorized as something the code won't work on (ie. Consoles).

I'd just order from Amazon, but I can't think of any fillers to get to the Free Saver Shipping... and I have some trade credit to burn.

That's weird, I bought gravity rush from GameStop and this was the only game I got in the email with a $25 trade value. No others listed. Did anybody else get a full list of games with these high values?

Yes the code didn't have a minimum amount to spend. It's a new thing to do I'm guessing to get foot traffic in the store and try to get a pre-order from someone but I just asked for it and purchased nothing and he gave it to me.

Is that the old style one like the Socom Confrontation and Endwar bundles?
The one I have is from the Socom Confront. Bundle but it still has the stand/charger.

Can I just trade that in with the Socom box or do I need the standalone plastic wrapper/box?

I have this box but I already traded in the game somewhere else.

I don't have this box:

You just need the headset and charge cable. Either version of the Sony headset is the same value.

It's listed as $44.99 on the website. Also, Left 4 Dead 1 is going for $34.99 used. Now is the time to trade them in if you have them lying around collecting dust like I did. Got $44.55 in credit after bonuses for the 2 last week.
