So I know that the 2 for $40 worked with the 50% List since I traded 2 games (one that was on both lists and one that was only on the 2 for $40) and it gave me the best trade value. I am wondering if I traded 7 games with a mix of games from the 50% list with some not on the list would it give me 30% for those not on the list because of the tiered trade. Or will all the games have to be not from the 50% list to get the 30%. Trying to figure out the best way to maximize my trades for games like the Orange Box, Spider-man:SD and Dead Island GOTY.

I'm about to trade in 10 games tomorrow, 5 are on the 50% bonus list and 5 I'll be using the 30% bonus towards a preorder. Should I split the trade in or just do it all in 1 and hope that the computer picks the best bonus?

Definitely split the trade unless you like spending more time in GS.

So Friday I went in and traded in my Xbox 360 4GB Slim and a bunch of games with the +50% towards RE6/Pokemon Black/White 2 PUR coupon. I don't think I got credited the +50%. Here's what shows up on my receipt:

Left 4 Dead - 14.30
Bonus 2.20 Promo 13666
Bonus 1.10 Power Up Card 10%

Left 4 Dead 2 - 22.10
Bonus 3.40 Promo 13666
Bonus 1.70 PowerUp Card 10%

Halo 3 ODST -6.50
Bonus 1.00 Powerup 13666
Bonus .50 PowerUp Card 10%

Halo 3 -5.20
Bonus .80 Powerup 13666
Bonus .40 PowerUp Card 10%

Super Mario Galaxy 2 -19.50
Bonus 3.0 Promo 13666
Bonus 1.50 PowerUp Card 10%

Mario Kart Wii -15.60
Bonus 2.40 Promo 13666
Bonus 1.20 PowerUp Card 10%

That definitely isn't the value I should've gotten. What's promo 13666? Did the employee just not enter the coupon correctly? I guess tomorrow I should go talk to a manager.

You got the tiered trade in bonus. You did 5+ games so that's the 20% you're seeing.

Ugh, I see now. I saw it obviously wasn't 50% but didn't understand how 20% came to be. So did the employee mess up or was this the register's fault? And will a manager to be able to override this? Kind of pissed if I just wasted 4000 PUR points for nothing. :(

Thanks!:D

Now, more people can get in on this deal!

It's now on the PUR dashboard.

I'd say it won't work only because I traded in 3 games (2 on the 50% list) and the 3rd did not get an extra 10%.

Check your PUR account. Is the coupon still there? Is there any mention of the coupon on your receipt?

The coupon is still there for me to reprint and stuff, no mention of it on my receipt. Guess I gotta go complain to a manager and have them fix this situation.

That sucks DestinyHero. It does answer my question though. Although it appears the tiered trade overrode the 50% trade unless the computer gave you the tiered since that was the overall best deal. Definitely going to try and keep promos apart now. More visits but better return.

Thanks for confirmation. Maybe I will wait till Friday to see if my local gs does a 50% bonus like 2 weeks ago for those other games.

Gamestop employees don't make anyone do anything. You can ask him/her to tell you the base prices for each game/accessory/console and the total for each should be shown on the card scanner at the end. If you think you're not getting the best deal, stop the process, LOOK at what you're doing, then proceed.

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.


You probably already are aware io but that CE is worth decent coin (at least new).

I brought in a bunch of stuff to my local Gamestop and ended up with $170 in credit: - Wii - DS Lite - extra Wiimote - extra nunchuk - Wiimote charger w/rechargeable batteries - Wii component cable - DS games: Metroid Pinball, New Super Mario, Nintendogs, Hamsterz, Brain Age, Animal Crossing, some crossword game, Texas Hold 'Em - Wii Games: Wii Sports, Animal Crossing, Glee Karaoke, Just Dance 2 The DS Lite had stickers on it so lost $9 on that but still got $31 for it total. Used my nephew's "power up" card so I got an extra 10% on all the games and accessories. That's on top of the bonus 30% I got on the games. Took a beating on some games (25 cents for Texas Hold 'Em...) but did great on others ($18.20 for New Super Mario DS). All in all, very pleased considering this stuff hadn't been played in at least a year. Now to figure out what I want for that $170... Tabe

Eek. Next time get a qtip/paper towel and some $2 & change Goo Gone from Home Depot or Lowes or wherever instead of taking a $9 hit over some stickers.

I see you're new so I'll let you in on something. In this thread it is customary to post the base trade-in values for those items. Example:

10/9
:360:Mass Effect Platinum Hits - $10

You might not have picked up on that looking back at the last few pages with mostly trade talk. Welcome!

So BBY sent me a :360: GOTY Borderlands so I called and asked GS what the TIV was. It is $15 base. So both Dead Island and Borderlands Vanilla are $10 base while their GOTY editions are $15 base. Time to figure out a tiered trade with these. You could get up to $21 each.

Also: Phone TIV

:360: Binary Domain $9

Figure all of these are listed in the promo, but just to confirm trade-in values (base):

:3ds: Super Mario 3D Land - $17
:3ds: Mario Kart 7 - $17
:360: Borderlands GOTY (2 Disc) - $15
:360: Darksiders - $9
:360: Forza 4 - $17

Got $117 after bonuses--all set for my fall releases!

Base TIV as of 10/08/12:

Posted ImageXbox 360Posted Image
Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY $5 (promo does not apply to this version)
Left 4 Dead 2 $17

Posted ImageWiiPosted Image
Super Smash Bros Brawl $13

Can someone try trading an original Arkham Asylum to see if the base value really is $7 and that the promo works on that version?

(If so, that is crazy, as the last base value reported was $2 and the non GOTY version would get $11.20 with PU Pro while GOTY gets only $5.50)
