Both the 100% hardware deal and the 50% on select game deals are no longer listed on the GS site. The link for the specific games in the 50% deal still works, though. So YMMV on maybe getting them to match ME3 from that list. I know at my GS they don't mess with any promos so I'd just get the lower value which probably means I just won't bother.

Here's that link, though, in case anyone needs it:

IIRC, the 50% on select games was never on GS.com only the PUR site.

:360:Halo Reach - $17; still getting 50%/60% bonus $25.50/$27.20 respectively.

Well they have been lowering the TIVs so I am sure they have more systems then they may have expected. I am sure the wording states they can cancel it at any time.

Interesting thing today at BBY. They have discontinued the Wii. No more new Wiis left in the store and they are not getting any more. Makes sense but I thought Nintendo might keep it around at least another year.


I seriously doubt this. The WiiU isn't out yet and it seems like it will be in short supply. It makes no sense to tank a platform before anyone can even buy the replacement/upgrade, and given that you can still buy dead as a door nail nintendo products like the DSI in stores, this strikes me more as nintendo/best buy pulling old stock to be replaced by a new SKU coming out. The last wii bundle refresh came out in the 3rd week of October of last year.

Hey guys, for the double value on the hardware do I need a coupon or is it automatic for Power up rewards pro members?

I just got off the phone w/ a gamestop and he said there's no such promo...

That's why I always grab the in-store flyers/ads. You may get an employee that will honor a pulled promo.

Also, the new Pre Owned Offers flyer (10/8-10/21) with the 30% trade-in bonus toward select games on the front now says "...when you trade any items..." So you guys may want to grab that since some get blocked when employees think it's only games that get the bonus.


Other offers in the new flyer that are not on GS.com:

$50 Extra In-Store Credit when you trade any PS3 or Xbox 360 system (obviously the 100% promo beats this)

30% Extra In-Store Credit when you trade any items toward any Wii U system, games, or accessories

Hey folks,

I want to trade in a DS Lite and some various games towards a 3DS XL this weekend. Does the following promos combine, or do I have to choose one (I'm a PUR member, but not Pro):
- 30% extra credit on 7+ games
- Double hardware bonus
- Whatever other hardware bonuses and PUR extra in store credit offers are currently running

I know some will be YMMV, but I just want the standard sort of idea and I'll handle it from there.

Thanks in advance. :)

I would do separate transactions for the system and the games.

Just to be clear, you mean trading the games in, getting credit on my account, and then separately trading the DS Lite for the 3DS XL and using credit to pay for some of the difference?

Sorry to be noob-ish, but I don't want to do what others have done before me. ;)

BTW, for anyone who hadn't looked, the PUR 50% bonus this week includes all 7 major Pokemon games- almost 135 in trade credit alone!!
Plus MK7 is 25.50, which you can buy the game for less than that used.

Well I do not like that. GS sending me an email with my store credit in big bold numbers at the top. Anyway, it was for the double trade in credit on hardware and the B2G1 on games $14.99 and lower...but the location they gave is doing all games B2G1. I wonder who runs their promotions department.

As of yesterday, 10/12/12:

Wii - $25.00 (should have traded it in earlier in the week)
PS3 Slim 120GB - $85 (quote)
Gears of War Xbox 360 320GB - $80 (quote)

Mario Sports Mix (Wii) - $12.00 (quote)

The values are definitely dropping, although the bonus 50% trades I had with me were still the same. However, I did not have Mass Effect 3 so it looks like I should have traded it in earlier, also.

FYI: I got on the WiiU waitlist but they said they would not be getting any more in, besides the initial shipment, until January?
