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.

When there are 6 GameStops within a 5 mile radius it is easy.

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.

Of course my source is just a manager at GS but he said they are giving them away with Kindle purchases right now and if sales are strong there is a good chance they could become an everyday item.

Edit: Your GS had other places to eat? Hmmm....

I traded in a bunch of stuff for ~$226 credit today, but I'm wondering if I should also trade in BlOps 2, as well:

I recently beat it once and got the (I think) worst ending, and I want to go for the others, but with such a large amount being offered for it right now, should I trade it in and hope it'll show up cheaper later? Should I be a gamer and keep it, or a gaming businessman and trade it in in the hopes of picking it up later? :-k

I'm also definitely going to try the single Blockbuster I can access to scout their inventory.

I'm guessing he's like me in that I traded forza for 18 base and dance central 3 for 16 base. Could have got around 15 more dollars. Oh well, I guess that's how it goes with trades.

Haven't even opened Forza Horizon but I am trading that sucker in tomorrow. Going to stop by Kmart to get the ad and PM at Best Buy since I can get reward zone points at Best Buy. I can trade in 2 copies of every game right?

You don't need to be a remember of the paid rewards program for this right? Just the free one?
Also guys is forza horizon worth $35 to anyone because I have two unopened copies from the bf sale (one im for sure going to trade in since it was purchased by mistake) and I probably won't get around to playing it for a month or two anyways.

Made a special trip out to gs tonight before it closed. Was paranoid that these tiv's would tank.

Unleaded forza horizon and lollipop chainsaw (both unplayed, from miscrosoft.com BF sale)
Just under ~$58 after bonuses. I'll probably just pick up $60 PSN or steam credit with it.

It's worth noting that PUR pro card only gives you +10% of the normal base tiv. Was expecting it to be 10% of the advertised tiv's
