WHEN REPORTING TRADE-IN VALUES PLEASE POST BASE VALUES & SYSTEM IT IS FOR.


Yes please delete your post. The OP clearly asks you to post base values. This is not for everyone else or because we are lazy. It is for the OP to maintain the values in an accurate fashion in the fastest way possible. If people want to be "rebels" and act all aggro when challenged I prefer you just not post. I would assume you are not very fun to be around.

That is not the point, but thanks for making it something it never was.


That kind of is the point. You just got updated as of this morning for 15 games, some of which were from the Best Buy sale and all you can do (not you specifically) is bitch about them not being base values? Really?

Not fun to be around? Because I don't post base values? Ha.

You are not getting the point. In fact, if it was so easy like the other poster said then your are either lazy or an asshole for not doing it for the thread yourself. But keep being all confrontational when 90% of the people on this thread can follow the rules stated for the thread.

Alright everyone knock off the base bitching. I do prefer base values as it is easier but I typically take ones that aren't base and do them last. Put em in a specially setup excel spreadsheet that typically nails them, by adjusting the formula based on the current promo.\

This is not directed at the receipt discussion guys, that is an oddity I've noticed at GameStops. The ones in Indy look similar to sp00ge's pic, the ones in Owensboro seem to have the base listed.

Dude, PUR is %10, to get base just put a zero at the end of ur pur bonus. Its a trick from elementary school days. Any ways amazon sent back my game b/c it expired after being in processing it for 4 days.

Sorry. I missed the FAQ spoiler tag. :dunce:

Thanks!

Another question. The Wii motion plus for $7 is just the small cube adapter that goes on the end of the Wiimote? I am trading this for my sister and I really do not know a lot about the accessories for the Wii.

Has anyone traded in Grand theft auto iv complete edition? I noticed grand theft auto iv value + gta episodes value was more than the value for the complete edition. Maybe someone has already tried this?

Interesting about the receipt format being a regional thing. Thanks for putting that pic up sp00ge, I didn't catch that you meant where you live and took it as a blanket statement. I honestly thought it might look different but it seems to be the same except for the missing base value.

As I posted, I have only seen them from Michigan (East and West L.P.) and the Atlanta area. I am curious as to why they use different formats though. Perhaps there is some kind of legal reason, maybe specific areas have laws concerning printed records for used item reselling or something?

Silly thing to wonder about I know but if anyone knows why this is I honestly would like to know. All I know for sure is that Jack_Frost and I get receipts with base values printed and klimb22, sp00ge, and JP (in Indy) do not. Oh and that we're all fun to be around!;)

P.S. - JP: As always, thanks for keeping the thread updated...but a dedicated spreadsheet! Please consider this a slow clap in the vein of when Rudy rejoins practice in the film of the same name.:applause:

If you're talking about 360 yes trade them in as disk only so you get credit for 2 $10 or so base games instead of just 1.

Base TIV is what the OP wanted because PROMO's come and go and not everyone is a PUR Pro member. Simple as that. It also makes it easier for the OP to update the TIV's, just do it for the OP not for anyone else.

Does GameStop get mad if you trade in two copies of the same game?


By "mad," if you mean "not allow," then in most cases, yes. Stick to 1 at a time, per console. People have been banned. And please, don't trade them in sealed.

Also, can I trade in game to one GameStop and trade in another copy of the same game to another GameStop right after without risking getting banned?


I've done that lots of times and have never had any problems.

Exactly. The base value on receipt is a regional thing. As I stated, mine DO NOT have them listed:


my receipt in OC also looks like this. But its not hard to figure out.

Oh god I just realized my last trade still didn't get the correct %.

- I traded games and two controllers
- preordered a game
- The 30% power trade took effect on everything
- went back in and asked him to fix it.
- instead of redoing the entire trade he just gave me a discount on a game I bought. He returned that game and then sold it to me at the discount.

Problem is he only added 10% instead of 20%. Holy shit its not hard man. 50%-30% is what kids...Yes! 20%. Good job.

So now I gotta go back and get the other 10%. Man why didn't I catch this when I was there. I guess I wanted to just leave after waiting 20 minutes for him to finish checking out the entire line.

Also I saw another post about being denied the 30% on a trade. Online it says its valid on ANY trade, including accessories. So tell them to just scan the damn preorder so the system can do it automatically. If it doesn't work, bitch at them until they figure it out.

Last question before I go to bed. I'm renewing up for PUR tomorrow and was wondering if I get the b2g1 coupon for renewing or not and if so, do I get it right when I renew?


its tied to your account online. you have to print it off. it takes probably a day atleast to show up. usually the same time any purchase you make shows up on your account online.

Plan on trading in some controllers next week while best buy has the DS3 on sale. Do they check them very thoroughly/at all? The one I want to trade in looks fine but the left button on the d pad doesn't work.

It was down to $17 when I traded it a couple days ago...depending on how many they've taken in it might have dropped another buck or two.

Is that for the enhanced edition or vanilla?


There is no vanilla. EE's the 360 release, so named because it has more content than the initial PC release.
