They accept disc only games.


That means If I trade in the damaged boxart of the game, I still can get $35 credit. Am I right? Now, I am going to tear off my seal.

Doesn't GS accept games without the cover? I thought they did.


Thank you again.

Yes, gamestop does not care if the manual, cover, or case is damaged. They will only price the trade based on the condition of the disc, but a gamestop employee might comment on the condition of the other parts at most.

Wondering if the 50% Steal of the Week thing stacks as well.


Anyone try this yet? Not sure if I want to commit to dumping the points if it will just be voided by this promo.

Holy crap. Promos will not, have not and will never stack. The ONLY thing that will ever stack with a promo is your 10% trade in bonus for being a member,

Man, flippers cleaned out my Blockbusters overnight. Every copy of Mass Effect 3 and almost every Just Dance 3 was gone.

Managed to get a copy for 10$ for an easy 20$ lol. Gonna go through my backlog since I have a ton of games that are on that list.

Correct. They won't take sealed games. You think they would since they try to pass off used as new but they don't.


Untrue just traded in my sealed copy of portal 2 just fined they didnt even open to check

Not because its on the list, apparently you can buy it for 7.50$, then trade it right back in to them for 22$. So they used it to fund their flipping exploits lol

That's a YMMV but against their policy. Glad you got to trade it.

Alice Madness Returns? Did that all of sudden become popular or something?

$20 is a good price but I don't think I could bring myself to trade it in...


The game is discontinued and is somewhat difficult to find at GS B&M stores.

So after I did some trade ins today, I have $364.83 in credit. Just enough for the WiiU, my store of had the Basic(White) console. Want to order online but the shipping and tax is horrible. Anyone know a code for free shipping? Tried the Saver one but it only works on games. Also, I thought if you were paying with Credit it was tax free?

I have a question. Is it possible for GameStop to suddenly forbid Peopleto trade in a game , for example, Forza horizon $35, because they have received too many of this games? Actually, I want to trade in my game next week with my other games arrived.

I've always paid tax when buying with credit at least online. Even have to pay tax on shipping fees, although some states do not allow that.

At least at my store, they are willing to give out free shipping codes if you call in and ask for one. I did this just a couple weeks ago and didn't even mention I was a rewards member.
