I'm starting to worry if trading in the games on the list will give that special bonus value instead of the 50% at these stores. Like the special values on the list are hard coded to these games and no other promo can override it.

ask for the values & worse case trade in 1 game at a time from ones not on the list.

harrisonburg, va the GS directly beside the best buy is alternating weekends one weekend is b2g1 and then the next is 50% extra.

this weekend is 10-19 is a b2g1 at that store

they are also price matching best buy for once .

they price matched a tritton headset that was on sale on the bb site for me in store . saved me 35 $

I was told that some stores may not be in the same sequence b/c their store managers went b2g1 when BB was doing one vs 50% & that messed up the timing with everyone else. But now that you've got the store down it's a deal each weekend just work out what deal you want to get in on.

Any luck in Nashville? I called the Gamestop in Cool Springs that shares a parking lot with Best Buy and they are not running the promo, but I can pre-order Metal Gear Solid:Ground Zeroes.

Does this 50% bonus work on accessories too. Or is it just for game trade-ins?

Yes?, No?, Maybe so?

Just called 2 stores that have been running the promos and employees at both stores said there is nothing this weekend. No b2g1f and no 50% trade-in bonus. The first store I called I spoke with the manager and he specifically knew what promos I was referring to and said there was nothing.

I was hoping for something around Nashville also. If anyone has any luck please share.

Thinking the same. Been holding on to a few games waiting for this to come back around, but looks like my store skipped it this weekend.

No. The minimum value is only valid on the 3/5/7 for $10/$20/$30 promo.

I don't know why people like shopping at Gamestop. They don't PM prices, most of their new games have been opened, and they hardly ever have any good deals.

Gamestop is, no joke, a haven for older games that other stores either phase out or don't even have in the first place. Recently from Gamestop I was able to get Final Fantasy V for $4 and Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner for $6. You can find gems if you look hard enough. And this is coming from someone who hates Gamestop for their bad business practices. Gutting games, lower then low TiVs, used games $5 less then new ones.

Yea, their good deals are far and few between, although it seems like they have had better deals more often than before. When trading in games, their TIVs are sometimes a lot better than BBs, especially when it comes to PSP/PS2 games. They have decent deals when they clearance out CEs. I mainly buy their clearance CEs or their exclusive CEs when they drop in price.

I know it is poo poo to say it but I basically been doing business there because I can turn $100 of BBY credit into $160-180 right now. That is pretty much better than any sale some other store will have.

I've been trading the cheap deals from BBY to GS (AFTER I play them) because the BBY value tanks after a sale. Otherwise flipping for credit really doesn't make sense to me. Their prices are higher, they don't pricematch and not preorder bonuses( like the 20 RZ bucks from BBY). Your 100 from BBY isn't getting you that 160 you think it is if you broke down how much more you pay at GS in general. Not hating on you. Just my take.

It does when I buy a new PS3 and 360. There is almost no difference in those prices. If we are talking games I never buy new releases from GS. All my new releases are at BBY because of the RZ certs (except Hitman since no one has a deal on it). As far as math is concerned getting $160 from $100 is 37.5% off new. If I buy used it is roughly 45% off. Add to the fact all my purchases with GS is tax free and I save another 5%.

The kicker is when you take $100 at BBY turn it to $160 at GS and then take that $160 at GS and turn it to $240 at BBY.

I've had my copies of Guitar Hero III and Sega Tennis for Xbox 360 rejected for the 2nd time now when trying to use them toward a tiered promo, such bullshit.

What was the reason? Low TIV? Should not be like that.

Come to think of it, does GS ever reject items on the grounds of "we have too many of those"? I know they can, but do they do it often?

Best Buy is getting all of my money during these sales because:

There's no site that lists which GS's are participating. The GS emails I get list a store in CA and I live in IL. The GS employees never know what the F is going on and there's only like 2 crazy people ever working.

If they want my money, they can tell me where the sales are.

I've never had that occur and never seen anyone else have it happen. Not saying it doesn't though, they probably do in very rare circumstances or when you get a bad store/manager.
