Yes, as long as you don't open them. Good luck.

Awesome, thanks. With the prices they were at, even if I just get the 30% trade bonus, still works out well.

One more question, do they do the 10% PUR trade in before or after the other bonus? (30%/50%)

Wanna know what a dumb employe asked me when I traded in mass effect 3.
Did you use the online pass. I'm like what does it matter not like I'm gonna get more if I didn't. So either he wanted it or they were gonna sell it as new either way GameStop is messed up.
And that's why I only use GameStop when I flip stuff or make money.

Maybe he was just going to throw the slip out if it was used?

I'm sure confused customers call in about that all the time.

It stacks so you will get 40%/60% of the base value.

Oh, ok, I thought it didn't in the sense that they first give you one bonus, and then the other so it makes it a little different.

So you got $150 for the Xbox slim after the 100% promo ?


The trade date on that info is October 11th....the 4gb xbox is now down to $65 I believe, so you would get $130 for it after the 100% bonus currently.

Damn I probably should've waited on Halo CEA <_<

But I probably have an extra $100 in trade credit with the new promo list.

Note sure if anybody's seen this yet, but new games are getting the 50% bump. Mostly newer games and complete editions of games but there's 40 games on the list, many good ones.

"Your world can end in the blink of an eye. One event, one unexpected twist of fate... and suddenly the world as you knew... is gone. Forever. All that you held dear, all that you held close... is washed away in a sea of distant memory. Life... is cruel. Of this I have no doubt. But life continues on... with, or without you. One can only hope that one leaves behind a lasting legacy. But so often, the legacies we leave behind... are not the ones we intended." -Queen Myrrah

Great new list but a bit confused why the numbers do not match up.


Yeah I just noticed that on a couple of them. Like for Kingdom Hearts DDD it says the regular value is $15 but you would get $20 if you use PUR. Shouldn't it be $22.50/$24 (with pro membership)?

Mentioned it earlier. Got some clarification also. Even though the wording stills says 50% and some values are at 50%, these are set bonus values. Just add 10% of the base value to the set value if you are PUR Pro.

Hopefully these values are guaranteed throughout the promotion. Unlike last week when Max Effect 3 base dropped. You still got the 50% bump but...

Well the good/bad is that it lasts only 6 days (5 now) so there is less time to have a drop but also to get the games. :)

The base TIV for Halo CEA was only $13 last week.

Looks like it's a new promo with some different titles added. Ends 10/21

https://www.powerupr...dex/TradeValues

...although if 50% then those values don't add up???

Thanks for the heads up -- most likely they updated the previous 50% list and forgot to change it to "up to 50%" since not all games are extra 50%

Will go tomorrow to trade in BL2 for $40+$2.50 pro (was going to trade it in at BB for $40 GC but decided to wait since I dont shop at BB much)

Can't wait til black friday

Halo Reach $17

Promo made it $24.70 (10% bump of the base needs to be added to the PUR promo value that's good for this week).

While it's nice that GS is offering competitive TIVs, it's a little annoying to see stuff from the last list on this one for slightly more :cry:

Very off-topic, but I hope someone helps me.

3 weeks ago I bought a new PS3 Slim (first slim) at Gamestop. It froze one time already. I turned it on, then changed to the tv for about ten minutes, and when I changed back to game, it was frozen in the XMB menu. I have no idea why it happened, considering that I already have the current firmware.
Also the PS3 controller that came with it is not well assembled, it is like sharp on the edges and it is annoying to use cause of that. I paid more than $250 for the console (paying taxes), and I think that at least I should have a good controller.

Well, Do you think that I should return it? Do you think it will freeze again? I called Gamestop and asked them if I could get just the controller replaced. They told me that it can't be possible, I would need to replace the whole system. They told me that they can't give me my money back because I bought it new. They also told me that if I want to return it I should pay $20 more to get the Super Slim version instead because they do not sell the first Slim version anymore. I don't want to pay those extra $20, and I don't want the newest slim because it looks cheaper and uglier (personal opinion). Any advice? I still have about 1 week before the 1 month warranty expires. Thank you.
