Wow, $32 for a PS2 isn't actually that bad.

JP - I added the $90 value for the 160GB fat and $95 value for 160GB slim (from the other thread) into the PS3 hardware section with today's date. There are a lot more hardware quotes in that other thread. I'd shut it down and direct everyone here but people tend to get a little pissed when stuff like that happens. The deal is good enough to have its own thread for a few days at least, anyway - then maybe I'll move it over here. Maybe I'll cull the rest of the values out of that thread later tonight and post them here.

Cool. I typically try to monitor the separate TIV promo threads for values because people throw a fit when they get merged with this one. That and it's also no that hard to check a second thread. The past 6 months work has been kicking my ass time wise so my updating is like every 3-4 days anymore so I get a little behind, which sucks on promos like these. My internet traffic at the office is more closely monitored now too, as someone complained about my IT blog posts. Jerks. I'm working on starting updating right now. Hopefully by this evening we will be back up to date.

Real dumb question:

Do iPhones and the like count as hardware or systems for the purpose of these bonuses?

DUDE. Your store's manager is freaking awesome and crafty/clever as heck. :shock:

Yeah, I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but this manager has been an EB/GS manager for as long as I've been going to Gamestop...since about 2004 or so...

In addition to giving him extensive knowledge of the system, maybe this longevity also allows him to get away with stuff he otherwise wouldn't be able to. Good for him for going the extra mile and good for you for holding onto a business relationship like that.

I am sorry to report that I had no such luck with my local store today. On Sunday afternoon I traded in a slim PS2 for $30. Today I was told that the base was $20, bringing it to $40 with the promotion. This is the last remaining Gstop that I go to and I am on very good terms with the entire staff. The store manager and employee that were there Sunday were also working today. She was unable to figure out a way to make it happen, saying that GA pawn law prevents any item being returned to the customer and couldn't/wouldn't sell me a PS2 for $30 to do the same thing your guy did.

I get it and all, I mean store managers have regional managers and everything so I wasn't a jerk about it or anything. She also knows that this sucks for her regulars and was sincerely apologetic, mentioning that she thought it was crap as soon as she saw the sale info sent to the store on Monday.

So to sum up a too long, too familiar tale...
Gamestop screwed me out of 25% of what would have been my total because I visited their store 24 hrs before I should have, using a deal just for loyal Power-Up reward members.
Thanks Gamestop, getting treated like this feels great.:booty:

Oh, and for the good of the group: PS2 slim TIV = $20, 10/02/2012

Question for people in here, and sorry if it seems silly, but if the sticks on a 360 wireless controller are worn, do they take off any credit? I have a bunch laying around my house I really don't need and would rather trade them to GS than try on CL

Also, couldn't tell by reading back a few pages. Are all fat PS3s getting 90 for this promo? I want to get a Backwards compatable one if my GS has any and wouldn't mind doing that for cheap...

Anybody know the restrictions for the trade 2, get 40? I have a stack of PS3 games I wouldn't mind getting rid of if I could get 40 bucks for them. Games like Uncharted 1 and 2, AC: 2 and Brotherhood, Mass Effect 2, and Hot Shots Golf for Vita.

I called but they said they couldn't help me due to "a line out the door."

Edit: Never mind. Found the eligible game list on-line.

There is a list. None of your games are on it.

SSX - $5

A lot less than I was expecting for SSX, for some reason.

EDIT: Right, just checked. The GS TIV is listed as $12 on the site. Super big hit/drop.

The game is currently on sale for $20 with used copies at $17 so I'd guess that has something to do with it.

Damn, wish I had seen that I would have held on to it until next week. Must have missed the email.

EDIT: Man, with the additional 30% that's another almost $15 left on the table. Damn it, I can't believe I let that sale slip by. That blows. Dipped me below $200 in store credit after paying off White 2.

Wireless Controller - $24.75 (9/27/12)


Is this still correct, can anyone confirm? Seems extremely high especially for gamestop. I traded a wireless controller in about a year ago and it was like $12 or so.

TIV 10/2/12

:360:

Spider-man Web of Shadows $11
Orange Box $11
L4D $11
Mass Effect $10
Halo CE Anniversary $11

:ps3:

F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin $2
MAG $0.25

Now whomever reported that MAG was getting $5.50 on 9/28/12 was either wrong or the clerk screwed up their TIV or my TIV was screwed because $5.50 ---> $0.25 is pretty steep in 4 days. I only did it because I need the 7th game for the extra 10%.

That was the old base of 22.50 with the 10% bonus. The TIV has fallen to 20.

Do they let you trade in the slim without a hd?

edit: My store tested the hell out of my controllers. They were about to reject both of them but they ended up taking one of my two controllers.

Seriously? Base price?
Tempted to trade it in with the 30% bonus trade-in ... get about $71.50?

don't believe so, unless it's a 4GB slim

that's what they quoted me without the 10% bump so I believe so, I couldn't see the screen so I'm not 100% certain but it makes sense since someone else said the 250GB slim hard drive trades for ~$47

Wait, so I can trade in an old white 360 without an HDD for $110 after the extra 100%? Gamestop only stands to profit $20 after that sale. I doubt I could even sell it for that much on Craigslist or something.

EDIT: And I can trade in my 160GB PS3 Slim for $190? $80 more and I can buy the new 250GB Slim Slim with Uncharted 3 for $80 more. This doesn't seem very GameStop-y.

i remember people talking about coupons stacking (25% off and 10 off 29.99+)

does anyone know if the b2g1 coupon (steal of the week) will stack with a $10 off coupon?
