Dont forget that some people had an extra $5 promo that made the nintendog bundle $3. I traded mine in for $17.25 which I added $2.75 to get a $20 PSN card. ~$6 for $20 psn? What a deal!
Say, "fuzzy pickles."

Both versions from the Amazon sale? Didn't have time to sell mine yesterday.


Both are the same value, but I only traded in one. I gave the other away.

Last week, Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle, Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog, and Steel Diver all had a lightning deal at the same time that there was another separate promotion active where you could buy all three games for $25. So if you added the games to your cart correctly, they would total $25 and then the Lightning Deal discounts would apply, reducing the total to about $8 for all three games.

Even if you didn't keep them, that was a great deal for some Club Nintendo codes (and you can even trade in the Nintendogs games for profit during the 50% extra promo).


I gotta pay more attention to CAG

Is 50% for used game Trade-ins the best Gamestop will offer?

I have a bunch of games to trade in, but I'll wait if there's a better deal out there.

theoritcally. it depends sometimes their 10/25/35 are better deals depending on the base value of the games. theyve also had an extra 5 dollars for any game promos too but again depends on the base value of the game. 20 dollar games benefit the most from 50% but 3 dollars games LOVE the 5 dollars for any game deal.

math is required to figure out the best deal.

Got that too. That would give me almost 10k points for my Wii U purchase today. Might mention it to one of the guys up there to see if he would be cool with a rebuy since I could knock an extra $10 off a game with those points.

On the fence about this:

Trade in my 160gb slim ps3 for $165 towards the $299 500gb AC3 bundle, or just buy a bigger HD? The ps3 pretty much belongs to my 3 yr old son. I have the plus membership so he can get the free games. Problem is the 160gb drive fills up pretty quick. I have to delete games to download new games. So between that concern, and the ps3 warranty being up in about 2 weeks, I dunno what to do.

Does anyone have one of these super slim consoles? Are they just as good or better than the regular slim?

If you're mainly just needing more space and nothing is wrong with it, I would just get the bigger HD. I upgraded my 160gb slim to the 250gb super slim BF bundle because it was only $20. I figure I got more out of that then you would paying the extra $135 for just a bigger HD, AC3 and a super slim. It would only cost you about ~$60 (cheaper if you searched around) if you wanted a 500gb HD.

I say get a newer model for the new Sony warranty. Also get a cheap 3 year warranty from SquareTrade.

I used a $25 off coupon on mine so I would have to work it out with them. I forgot about the 10% PUR pro bonus points too. I might even just email the PUR people about it to see if they can make it easy on me.

This is what I figured I would do.

AC3 Bundle $299 or $325 w/tax

My 160gb slim -$165
2 xbox wireless controllers - $36
The AC3 game - $30 because I already own the 360 version
Batman AC and Dragons Dogma $36

That leaves me with like a $58 balance. I guess I'm looking at it like I would have the newer model, more HD space, plus the warranty.

GS values are incredibly YMMV. Sometimes they are nuked very very quickly, sometimes it takes a very long time for values to drop.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I really don't think they will tank values because of a triple points promo - they really aren't related. Really, they would change values much more for the 50% promo than for that.

I got this email too - completely missed it until I saw this thread ;). I might go and do a trade tomorrow but I probably won't get anything on the weekend for the promo. Though it might be easier to me to do that trade Saturday. I'm worried about values dropping (just for regular reasons) by Saturday.

Ah, yeah makes sense. I'm worried too. Especially about Amazing Spider Man. haha.
