Just traded in my backup Xbox 360 Arcade(white) for about $71 with the 30% hardware bonus(guy behind the counter didn't know about it and I showed him the back of the flyer that was right next to him). Got another $5.50 each for the crappy headset and chatpad as well. $82 in gamestop credit for a backup console I bought for $85 about a year and a half ago. Awesome.


Is that the orignal headset that came with the arcade at release?

Traded in my Ipod Touch 16gb with the broken headphone jack, I got $71.00 for before bonuses even through the website listed $84.00. The very hot girl behind the counter said she listed it in very-good condition and thats why it got knocked down. I was going to keep it but she kept pushing her boobs together in her very low cut shirt and now I dont remember what happened. All I know is my copy of NHL 13 is paid off and after the 30% bonus I got like $84.00 more dollars added to my PUR Card.

Do Ipod trade-ins get the extra 10% added for the PUR Card or are they treated like a hardware trade-in with no 10% bonus from the card?

I normally don't complain about Gamestop but I went through hell today just to get a 3DS XL upgrade. A lot happened and I was there for a LONG time arguing but here is the short version:

First of all the girl was trying to tell me that I couldn't play my old DS games on the 3DS. Then she was telling me that the trade in value for a DS Lite was $2.00.

I told her that the website says there is a promo where you get $40 for it if you put it towards a 3DS XL. She kept insisting that there's no way a DS Lite would be $40 because it is old and that she had never heard of such promo. After arguing for a while she decided to ask another one of the employees who claimed that the promo ended a long time ago.

Finally a girl who I assume is the manager comes in and says "What are you doing? You rang up the DS Lite Adapter.. that's why it says $2" The girl at the register still insisted that I was wrong and reluctantly scanned the DS Lite properly and voila! $40!

I hate the fact that these people don't know the promos going on in their own stores and would rather argue with you all night than simply look it up.

This all occurred after they spent a long time fighting amongst each other over a missing 3DS XL. (I asked for a blue and they couldn't find it) Despite the fact that I told them I was okay with the red one, they gave me an attitude as if I was DEMANDING a blue one. Boy, I can't wait to send in this feedback...

So I guess my TIV contribution is: DS Lite Adapter: $2 :D

Imagine how many pre-orders she must get just by doing that to some of the male customers while they are being rung up. Even if they don't keep the pre-ordrers, I doubt they'd cancel them on her. Definitely sexist, but she could probably talk some men into pre-ordering the worst game, or games, while doing that.

Lonely nerds being distracted by breasts with their spendable money or credit in hand...just seems like a bad situation.

I guess I should be glad that the GameStop I go to always has unkempt-looking guys there.

9/9:

:360: Mass Effect - $10

Got $16 total after buying it for $7.99 from BBY (PMing BBY.com's price and paid for using a GC) and bought a PS Vita Portable Charger for ~$16 (using a GC and GS credit) after applying the credit from ME, so it's like I paid a little over $20 for a charger that goes for upwards of $45-$50 on Amazon. Good day. :)

I tried to trade in an Xbox 360 controller and place a preorder for Tekken and New Super Mario Bros. Wii U for the extra 30%, but the system wouldn't allow it. Does anyone know what's going on? The ads and marketing material in the store had the same exact details as the one posted in the OP except it explicitly stated that you could trade in only games and not accessories or hardware.

The last time I was in one of my local stores the chick behind the counter was so fucking cute she could have sold me back the games I just traded in.

Neither of my stores knew about it other than just games, but they were super cool and nice about it. One guy tried to be like it's just games, but I pulled it up on my phone and all three of them were like, "Well, your completely right." I was trading in an iphone btw. It took them forever to finally get it through, in the end the manager or lead that was there just credited me the difference I think, but in the end I got what I was supposed to get.

Like I said, the guy that was waiting on me was really cool, they could have all easily denied it and just been like, "It's only on game trades!"

I never do the surveys hardly but I'm going to this time to leave them good feedback
