Ok I hate to even mention it because it is either a YMMV or an issue with the Trade 2 for $40 deal and I still have stuff to trade but I thought I would share and hope it does not get fixed. I am not sure how many people have done the 2 for $40 but I did 2 sets tonight and got more than I expected.

First Set was

Marvel UA2: $22 (seems right)

L2D2: $27.20 AND 2 promos were applied My PUR and the Promo #13918

Second Set

Saints Row 3 (PS3) $27.20

L2D2 $27.20

Both of these had the extra promo 13918.

The funny thing is they both rang up at $40 but then adjusted to the new price when my PUR card was added. Hoping this does not change since it is about an extra $10 per pair with the right games.

It's a promotion. I have 2 more sets to trade in, but I need to finish Max Payne 3 first. And, the other 3 games haven't arrived yet, but should come up early next week.

I know it is a promotion. But what I am saying is the 2 for $40 is actually ringing up as 2 for $54.40 depending on the games.

Well, did you put it towards a pre-order, a game with another promo going on, or just put on a card? I always gotten other promos to stack even with these 2 for $x.

Nope that is what is so weird. I was also at 2 different GS so it was not because of a store error. Just traded them in and put it on the card. That is why I am saying YMMV because I would have thought someone would have mentioned this already. Makes me wonder what some of the other games might be getting as long as you stick to 2 at a time.

How the hell is Halo reach worth $25.50 trade in for power up rewards with the current promotion??? In fact, it'd be about $28 with the pro membership.

I have it collecting dust. did it go OOP or something?

Who said it was worth $25.50? It only has a TIV of 12.00 last time it was posted.

I got $25 for it two weeks ago. But that was with a 30% (40% with PUR) bonus offer for a preorder.

Huh, since Dead Island (:360:) gets $8 base as of 9/29 and the GotY gets $10 base as of mid-September, does the listing for DI in that promo correspond to the GotY or the vanilla edition? I ask because of the $10 base value listed for DI. Borderlands 2 is so freaking awesome that I don't really see myself playing (or enjoying) the Dead Island GotY I have sitting in my backlog. :\

I also have to consider trading in Dark Souls (:ps3:), since $12 might be the best value with the new edition coming soon...:-k

This must have been why I got those values. Time to trade some more games!

Looks like it expires 10/14 also.

So you actually get the value in red + 10% the black values from that chart.

YMMV. I've had some GS charge me for no case, which is really WTF? Most haven't though.

It is funny how GS runs these promos. They put games from the 2 for $40 on this new list at more than $20...the good news is if you add one from the new list with one from the 2 for $40 you get the higher price on the first one and still the $20 ($22 Pur) for the other game.

question:

You cant use more than one coupon per transaction.

The interesting thing is that url says Oct12. I wonder if it was not supposed to be in effect yet and only for next weekend? Either way it is definitely ringing up right now.

I noticed that too. Looking back at your post it looks like the games that were eligible for this promo cancelled out the 2 for $40, but you still got the 2 for $20 value on the 1 game not on this list. Sweet.

Yep. Got $190. Used some of it to buy 3 DS3s for $85.84 (my store is having a B2G1 on pre-owned products) and traded them right back in for $115.50 with a $5 pre-order. Going to do it again to get the GS exclusive gold DS3 for free.
