Went in today to trade in Super Smash Bros Brawl and they told me its only worth $10 ($12 with my PUR).

They did say they would give me $15 if I bought something though.

I didn't do it, but was disappointed.

Wow, just grabbed 18 games from this list off my shelf, traded them in for a total of $441.20.

Purchase a 32 gig Wii u deluxe and SMBU and still had $31 and some change. A lot of the games I traded where older and sports titles, so it was a good day.

Thank you for this post, I hardly check my email associated with my powerup account so this would have slipped me by.

Say it with me: "GameStop worst retailer of the year". That's what CAGs have said for many many years now....

Awesome, just PM'd Portal 2 at Best Buy for another easy 20$. Apparently another CAG had the same idea, because he was buying 2 copies as well

Can anyone confirm that the items installed on SR3 Full Package will work with the regular disc? Buddy will give me the disc but I am thinking about trading in mine for $25.

I don't get the point of coming in here and bitching about Gamestop. You don't like them and don't wish to do business with them and thats cool. But its not really adding anything to the discussion.

Gamestop gave me $25 for the Killzone trilogy I paid $40 for with the DS3 control, and $35 for the Madden game I paid $25 for.

Horrible retailer, they deserve nothing but terrible things happening to them. What a rip off.

I know everyone is in the "OMG, how fucking awesome, Fuck you guys who ever said anything bad about GS" mode... but I'm waiting for next month or so when we hear.. "fuck those guys, the only ever did ONE thing right back in december, since then, Fuck them" ... blah, blah, blah.

Anyways, I won't be trading anything mainly because the backlog is huge and I'm too caught up in the damn sports games. Though trading madden is tempting. I haven't touched the game but twice I think.

Any they still have yet to allow price matches. When they do that... then I'll join the bandwagon :D

With the way some people are buying/trading games, part of me is wondering if they aren't doing this to scan for and ban all the mass flippers.:lol:

I don't mind them not PMing so much since with deals like this, I make good profit off games I bought cheap. So game cost like "60" but I really only paid 20-30 for it.

Personally I never won, so no. But if they did a bad job, I'm sure their boss will get on them since you're giving a feedback on their procedure and service.

I dont see why gamestop would care about flippers. They make money off it and its not like promos like this get them 30 copies of crap games in their store.

I love that these values are guaranteed until 12/16. I'll play the few that I do have and then trade them in.

Alright that was fun. Left the house with 5 games and $238 in credit and came home with 3 games a DS3 controller and $460 in credit.

Hit a few Blockbusters but no Alice's but I did find a bunch of Just Dance 3 Wii copies. There were at least 12 copies between the 3 Blockbusters I went to. They sold for $9.99 and traded for $20.80 so I ended up with 4 copies. If I had the time I would have done more. I also picked up a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4 for $5 to keep.

No luck with Portal 2 at Kmart but both my BBY price matched 3 copies at $9.99. I kept one 360 copy and traded one each of the others for $21 each. Also picked up a used copy of Alice at BBY for $15 and it traded for $20.90.

Another good tip for anyone wanting a cheap DS3 controller. BBY is selling the KZ3 bundle on Sunday for $39.99. I bought one today at $59.99 and will price adjust on Sunday. After trading the game for $26.10 I got the controller for $16.
I also got a pristine used copy of Hitman Absolution for $34 (not great but I want to play it now)

In the end I traded:

Just Dance 3 Wii x 4 $83.20
Portal 2 x 2 $42
Alice $20.90
KZ Trilogy $26.10
Dead Island GOTY $21.00
Lego Batman 2 $21.10
GTA IV Complete $21.00
Batmann AC GOTY $21.10

Total: $256.40 (cost me $159.35)

FYI GS now sells $15 Taco Bell GCs....if that is your thing and you can use trade credit.

Also there is a good chance they are going to start selling Amazon Kindle cards.
