Ugh.... Went to Gamestop to trade in some games, and the guy didn't know what he was doing (he was obviously new there). I brought in Resistance: BS, Rage, Star Wars: FU II, and LBP 2 SE (which I got in the PS3 bundle during Black Friday), and an HDMI cable.

He scanned everything and tried scanning LBP 2, and was all like "Oh, this says not for resale, can't take this." I didn't bother explaining to him that the 'not for resale' label means that it can't be sold outside of the bundle, but that it could be resold separately after being purchased. First time I've ever had an issue with it. So, I didn't get the 25%.

Then he was all like "Oh, we don't take HDMI cables." Then he turned to the guy working the other end of the counter and was all like "Do we?" Then the other guy was all like "Yeah, we do." and gave him a look like he was a total dumb ass. The other guy had to constantly come over and help him too...

So my question is, can I go and trade in LBP 2 and try to get the 25%, or is there any way to get my games back? Wish I had fought with him on it, but he was a really nice guy- he just did not know what the hell he was doing... :-?

Trade in as disc only. Or cover up the "not for resale" next time to avoid the problem.

Yeah I know. That's what I thought of when I got back. Ugh... never had an issue just trading in the whole game, even when it says 'not for resale'. The guy didn't even know how the system worked- only knew how to scan stuff. :roll:

This right here makes me think it's time to get into FIFA. I can get at least half of my money back almost 1 year later if I don't like it.i can't believe it's still that high.

Does GS still take in RROD xbox 360s?
Do they also take in those old HDDs?
How about for a working xbox 360 (old version)?

The NHL series follows a similar path. Doesn't drop in price until literally the week before the new one comes out and used copies aren't plentiful in stores until July/August.

During the NHL playoffs ALL GS in St. Louis were sold out new and used on 360, a few scattered PS3 copies here and there.

1. No
2. Yes but TIV is horrible on the 360 HDD's. You're better off selling on CAG/Amazon/CL/EBay. Only version they give double digits on is the old style 250GB, which you can get 7 times more on the sites I mentioned above.
3. Go to OP, lookup TIV on 360 system, that's the price for all the non-Slims.

(I'm a current employee there)

Does GS still take in RROD xbox 360s? = No
Do they also take in those old HDDs? = Yes, but you get almost nothing for them tbh
How about for a working xbox 360 (old version) = Of course. Also trade it in within the next couple days to get this offer. (extra $25) http://www.gamestop.com/tradeins

Quick question about PUR. Mine expires next month, but I renewed mine on Sunday. How long does it usually take to get the B2G1 coupon for renewal? Is it when the renewal period officially hits?

You checked Active Offers under poweruprewards.com and it's not there now? It should show up within 2 days of a renewal. You might want to call GS customer service.

Console, 1 controller, video/power cables (must be standard AV or component cables, can't be HDMI.)

why would it be in cash? No one does cash at GS. FYI they take away 50% of the regular Trade in if you want cash. This is CHEAPassgamer. :roll:

Only offer there is the $10 off any purchase I redeemed points for awhile back. Looks like I get to call and complain again. Yay!
