I want to trade in several Halo Reaches for my friends since I have the Pro membership. Do you know if they keep track of your trade-ins on the screen or if there is a limit like Best Buy (assuming if I trade the games in one at a time at different Gamestops)? Thanks.

You might be able to trade in two copies if you explain that you're doing it for your friends, but any more than that and it might look suspicious; technically GS doesn't allow more than one copy of a game to be traded in at one time (at least that's what I've been told and heard from others). I'd space out your trades across several days with no more than 1-2 copies at a time, depending on how many you mean by "several", and try to use different employees as often as you can.

Is GameStop open today being Columbus Day or whatever? I think it's time to show some love for 'Murica by Pre-Ordering Assassins Creed 3 on the day no other than the one it was discovered. Gotta get rid of Sleeping Dogs fast since the MSRP's dropping like a rock.

Also, trade in-questions about the HDMI cable and Wired Headsets. By HDMI cable, can it just be any old HDMI cable or does it have to be xbox-branded or something? I have an old one that i can't use anymore with my computer and TV since I re-arranged my room and it's just sitting here now. also, I've got an old wired headset that just sitting around too, what do they look for on those when trading them in? Mine's missing the fuzzy end for the mic but that's it. Still works okay as far as I know.

Probably looked up the wrong one. Cause GS sells pre-owned 3DS systems for $139.

Does anyone know the value of a Ps2 trade-in after the double credit? I have a slim, and I'm not sure what else I would need to trade-in for it.

$20 base, so $40 after the promo.

So that list of 40 games have higher trade in values and if you are a PUR pro member you get another 50% on top of those values?

For example, say I trade in deadspace 2 xbox, which is on that list for $12, I would get $19.20 total? ($12 * 50% = $18 * 10% = $19.20?)

The answer is correct but the math isn't it is 12*1.6=19.20 but the way you put it would show up as 19.80 haha

The table alrdy shows the promo values for PUR members so theres no 50% on top of those values -- if you have PUR Pro then you get 10% extra based on the regular value

PUR members is regular price x 1.5 (which is alrdy shown on the table)
PUR Pro members is regular price x 1.6

Deadspace 2
Reg trade value = $8
PUR $8 x 1.5 = $12
PUR Pro $8 x 1.6 = $12.80

I guess the mods shut the 50% list thread down...weird considering they left the 100% hardware thread up...a little consistency would be nice.


Why would they shut down the thread? It is just a reposting of a deal being honored by GameStop. Am I missing something?

Just a head's up for anyone thinking of trading in their Nintendo 3DS consoles. Gamestop gives $50 dollars base-value. I traded mine in today and I ended up getting $100 dollars total for it. I will take it considering I never play it anymore and I was able to recoup 2/3 of what I paid for it brand new. 8-)

Just speculating, but it may be that the offer was not to be advertised until Oct 12 (as seen in the URL) even though it's live now. Maybe GS sent a C&D or a GS employee asked nicely to have it removed.

There is a 30% bonus on I-devices right now if you're willing to put it towards a pre order or purchase of select games (pretty much all the big upcoming titles are on the list) On the gamestop website, where it lists the trade deals, there is a banner that says 30% power trade on any item towards the preorder of select games, and when you click it, the next page specifically states ipods, iphones and ipads. The manager at my local store was skeptical of it working on i-devices, but I showed him the webapage from my phone, and he scanned a bar code in a book and I got the extra 30% when trading in my Iphone. I got $221 store credit for a 32g Iphone 4, and put it towards the Halo 4 console bundle.


That's good to know. That'll knock the trade-in price of my old iPhone 3G up to over $60.

Thanks for the info. Shame that I'm not too interested in any of the games that qualify for the 30% bump. I've got a Persona 4 Golden pre-order, but it's not included.

Plus I'm sure pre-ordering something you don't want and canceling it will get me a stern kick in the ass out of the store.

Ok. Still weird considering the community posts ENTIRE video game ads for the upcoming week. But like you said, it may be that someone asked for it be removed.

Right.:roll: That IS very ODD.

Maybe the TC will see to it that the 50% bonus on SELECT games is added to the heading and the link is added to the OP as this is a time sensitive bonus until Oct 14. Seeing as how that thread got so many responses so fast, it's obvious that some people miss this thread unless the heading is eye-catching enough. And, this is a TRADE IN DEAL.

No. The deal is going on now.

All that's needed is a PowerUp Rewards card.

Uh, yeah, I didn't know about this myself until today. I'm digging through games to see what I have. Found a Pokemon Platinum in a drawer - that's going. I have HeartGold, too, but that is still worth more than GS is giving for it. Oh yeah, and I have Left 4 Dead 2... I even found a Mortal Kimbat vs DC Universe but I have the Collector's Edition so I'm hesitant to bring that in. I even found a sealed copy of Infamous 2. I honestly have no idea where I got that from as I sold my used copy when PS+ had it for free. Where I got a sealed one from is a complete mystery - such is the life of a CAG ;).

I'll try to add some stuff to the OP, though the title is pretty full of info right now.

OK, done. I had to remove the Power Trades part from the title. It can go back in when this ends.

Gamestop has officially lost my business with incompetent employees.

Was in gamestop arguing with the manager about moving my credit from COD Black Ops 2 (a game i was forced to pre-order) to God of War Ascension.

They were saying since the COD was a "Power-Trade" Title i couldn't move my credit.

"NO". I said. I didn't pay off COD with the Power trade promo. I used a 50% coupon i bought off power-up rewards good towards ANY pre-order. I traded in about $250 worth of goods a month ago (Check my post a month back) and they forced me to put all my money torwards pre-orders even after paying off in full 3 PS3 titles and 1 Vita title.

I show them my receipt for proof that i did not use the "Power Trade" Promo so it does not apply but the manager says it's still a "power trade title" so i can't move it. I'm like WTF? 50% and 30% promo doesn't stack so it's either one or the other. And of course i used the 50% using logic, and proof from the receipt. They still said no.

I don't see how they are giving me hassle over my ****ing money.

I told them before i left that they couldn't stop me legally. I'll just pick the game up and return it and get what i want.

It's crazy how you go through so much with this damn organization

Sounds like a Jr. Detective employee. Maybe contact your District Manager or something? I've moved credit from Power Trade titles before and never had a problem.

I have the same issue with that coupon. They made me pre-order all $180 of my trade. My plan is to just pick the games up and then return them to a different store.

I gained possession of my now former friend's 4gb after he defaulted on his loan. I'm planning to take advantage of this offer and trade it in. However, it's missing the A/V cable but I do have an HDMI cable. Will Gamestop still take the console or should I buy the A/V cables before trading it in?
