The 30% + 10% promo is better than the $5 + 10% on games that trade in for $17 or more.

Also I am going start calling some GS's in my free time soon to start getting quotes on Xbox 360 games that haven't been updated in 2+ years. I love helping this thread :D (if you haven't been able to tell by now)


The thing with that is, you may have to call a few for the games you inquire about a TIV.

When Assassins Creed was $14, I called a GS after reading the value on here. The guy had a professional sound. Even put me on hold while he 'checked'. Came back and said $11.xx:roll:. Called another and got the $14 quote.

Phone quotes are cool, but not something for the OP.

You would think GS would have this type of thing figured out after being in business so long. It is either a. They are too stupid or b. They think the majority of their customers are too stupid. Discuss...:lol:

Traded in another 4 games today, puts me at $295.61 for the 26 games I traded in today and yesterday.

360 titles

Rage - $5
Deadliest Warrior - $6
Assassins Creed Rev - $15
Lego Indiana Jones 2 - $6.50

The problem I have now is I never buy games at Gamestop, ever. So I've got $300~ in credit to a store I don't purchase games from. =/


shit, buy a ps3, 3ds XL, ipod, iphone, something. Shit give me the money and Ill have no promblem spending it :D


YES! Getting an iPad 2 today $359 w / $50 itunes, reserved an 3dsxl , thinking about a nexus 7, and wii u later. Gamestop is becoming my defacto hardware store. With all the recent promos my cost out of pocket is less than 50%.

gi joe rise of cobra ps3 2.75 :( missedd that one)
sonic unleashed ps3 5.50
mk vs dc universe ps3 5.50
ps move heroes ps3 3.00
sly collection ps3 11.00

Huh, if you're willing to take a risk on the TIVs, you could hold onto the combo pack until the 2-day "Buy a used game, get 50% extra credit for your trades" promo to get $51 ($54.40 w/ PUR). Not a bad profit margin at all ($28 BBY -> $51/$54.40 GS), though I think I'm fine with the GS credit I've got and I'd like to hold onto my more-versatile BBY GC credit.

Just buy a used game for 99cents or less to get the 30% toward pre-owned bump.

Week 5 or 6 of Gamestock according to this post from earlier in the thread:

When I was trading in games yesterday, I was told by the manager that an email came across detailing the Gamestock Week 5 or 6 (not sure which), but there is a 2 day Buy a used game get 50% trade in bonus coming up. Just an fyi.

I was really going to keep MLB 2k12 to have a Baseball game to mess around with but after seeing the value I think I'll take it to GS a put some credit with it to get The Show. Should only take 5 to 7 bucks of credit.

I got this a while back for the 3DS version, too. You'd think with racks (now) full of Skylanders figures and the fact that they take the figures in for trade that they might want at least some stock of used copies to sell to people. I could see them not wanting to be flooded, but I think they'd do well with it. There is no way to buy just the game without the entire starter pack so I'm sure some customers would appreciate a $30-ish used copy.

I had an extra 360 starter pack that I got on sale a while back. All the kids I know (nephews, etc) either already had it or weren't interested, so I just split it up. The first thing to sell was the game - went to someone who said their kids broke their disc and they had no way of getting a replacement other than eBay. They were more than happy to pay $40 for it. GS is being stupid by not taking those - they could give $10 for them and sell them for $30, easy.

(That is, unless there is some arrangement with Activision not to do so...)

GS no longer takes Skylanders figures for trade. They don't take Rocksmith either. It's a space issue, GS doesn't like taking anything anymore that requires additional accessories.

So i learned about getting free points through the Gamestop app today from an employee. There's an option at the bottom to "check in" and you select any one of the stores near you and you'll get rewarded 5 Powerup points automatically.

You don't have to physically be at a GS. It can be done at home. The limit is one check in per day (5 points).

traded in mlb 2k12 today and kept nba 2k12 for free basically. So is there a way they can check if you traded in the same game for the same system? I not sure if they can ban you at gamestop for this? I was contemplating getting another nba 2k12 for bro. didn't want to trade more then one copy of a game
