Base Trade-in Value on 10/4/12

$27.50 PS3 Dual Shock 3
$ 2.00 PS3 mini USB cable
$20.00 Xbox 360 wireless controller
$20.00 PSP 2000 system
$ 1.75 PSP Slim Component Cable
$ 4.00 PS2 Okami
$ 1.50 PS2 Odin Sphere
$ 5.00 PS2 Final Fantasy X
$ 1.25 PS2 SingStar Country (game only)

Used the 30% trade-in on select title promo for everything except the PSP system. Manager told me it only works on games and showed me the Epic Mickey 2 flier that specifically said games. I showed him the website ad http://www.gamestop....0-trade-credit/ and asked him to try it anyway, it worked.

Did the PSP system trade-in on a separate transaction and put the credit on my rewards card. Then I got Borderlands 2 (pictured in the 30% promo) and still had $34 left. Manager wouldn't let me out the door without putting it on a pre-order.

Me: Can't we just put the rest on the card?
Manager: I would if it was a dollar or two, but that's too much.
Me: Ok, well I'll just return it. I guess I'll pre-order uh.. the zombie game for Wii U.. Zombie U?
Manager: The reason you're getting this much is because of the promo and you have to pre-order and come pick it up.
Me: Ok, I'll get Zombie U



I would have walked out and never returned to that gamestop. Manager lied to you.

No, no he was doing me a favor by processing my trade-ins on a company wide promo resulting in a marginally higher credit value and I better show my gratitude by pre-ordering a game through him.

Meant to post it here for JP instead of the 100% promo thread. The reason for the refurb fee is because I turned in mine as is (BD drive is dead).

10/4/12.

:ps3: 60Gb Fully backwards compatible: $90 (base)
:ps3: 60Gb refurb fee: $35.00
:360: 20Gb Core Console sans hard drive: $55 (base)

after the 30% extra trade bonus towards preordering Dishonored I ended up getting $78.xx for my 320GB slim 360 hard drive :shock:

Ugh, 50%! How did I not see this either? Could have gotten even more for SSX and NBA 2K12. This just isn't my week :no:


Yeha, but you would have had to spent PUR points. How many is the coupon?

I do have an NBA 2K12 to get rid of now that I picked up the new game (that I got with the extra credit from my PS3 trade-in when they adjusted it for me on Monday).

I did finally redeem some PUR points, though - got an Xbox Live messenger kit (headset and chat pad) for 21k or so in points. My son had wanted the pad for a while to write signs and stuff in Minecraft and I had, well, way more points than that that did me no good - so it was a win-win.

I called our local GameStop yesterday and got a trade-in quote of 22.00 for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron for Xbox 360.

Apparently, Mr. Universe swears it's 24.00. So I questioned myself and called GameStop again today, and again got $22.00 as a trade-in quote. There's no *regional* difference in trade quotes, is there?

Gamestop employee charged me a $25 refurb fee for my xbox because there was an "M" in sharpie on the bottom corner as big as this font, and my controller was dirty. Nerd. Dude is lucky I had been drinking and didnt really care at the time...


Would you want to buy a console/controller that looked like shit, or would you want to have a clean one? Just because you like to treat your systems like shit, doesn't mean other people should accept that.

1st GameStop:
:ps3: 80GB phat PS3 (2 USB) -- $90 base, $180 after promo
:360: 512mb phat X360 arcade -- $55 base, $110 after promo

Bought a PUR Pro membership, but this GS wouldn't give 30% preorder power trade on accessories (games only) so I went to another GS

2nd GameStop (took a print out of the offer on their website, no hassle):
Preordered COD Black Ops 2
:ps3: PS3 DS3 wireless controller -- $27.50 base, PUR $2.75, 30% $8.25 = $38.50
:360: X360 wireless controller -- $20 base, PUR $2, 30% $6 = $28
:360: X360 play & charge kit (black) -- $8 base, PUR $0.80, 30% $2.40 = $11.20

$77.70 total credit - $59.99 game (no tax) = $17.71 balance transferred to card

Had another 360 charging cable, but neither GS would take just the charging cable by itself (both wanted a battery pack with it)

Overall pretty happy with the trade -- will wait til Black Friday to buy a slim 360 and super slim PS3

why not just buy a 10 dollar wired keyboard from wal mart???

Well, for one I don't go to Walmart. I figured the cheapest keyboard I could get would be about $20-$30 anyway. I've considered it but then anything wired won't work - too long of a distance and that is just asking for trouble with the little ones. Actually, any keyboard is. They tend to destroy them ;).

It would be nice to hook up a keyboard for entering all those Borderlands 2 Shift codes though. In any case, my son wanted the chat pad and it was essentially free so I'm not complaining. I got a nice headset out of it that I can use too instead of the really old wired ones from my original 360 purchase.

actually mine was about 8 dollars i think so yea lol plus there is always amazon

and why the wal mart hate???

but i guess with little kids running around wired is an issue that makes sense. spend a little more to save the console unless its a gamecube or wii at which point let the kids drop it and the dog drool on it while its saving it will survive!!

Thanks. I thought so, but a few different GS I called for quotes said $2 or more, which is usually reserve for the $10/$20/$30 promo.

With 360 controllers, do you have to have the backings that allow for batteries or can they be the rechargable ones?

If its rechargable they trade it in as a wired controller. I had to buy a case on amazon for like 2.50 to trade it in.

FYI if you don't visit the PS2 sale thread: All $.99 games (currently buy 10 for $.99) are to be destroyed on Monday morning so this is the last weekend to get them. This is confirmed by multiple people in stores today.

Also (not fully confirmed yet) all $1.99-$3.99 games (currently buy 2 get 2 free) left on Monday are to be shipped back to GS's online warehouse and will be gone from all stores.

I'd say good call on not trading Wii motes I traded a Wii system and the controller had the motion plus. He took that separate and I think I got 8.50 for it alone
