Welp, got $240 after an error by the manager there (he scanned Assassin's Creed 3 twice... he realized it after and still let me keep the credit since it was his error... score!)

Bought a Wii U because I'm a lame consumer whore

If your a Power Up Rewards member (which I am), Can you use the weekly special coupon that's 50% more trade-in on top of the values listed on the link in the first post? (ie. Forza Horizon is $35.00, so with that coupon it'll be $47.50) Is the coupon stackable with this promo?


Well, it says not valid with any other offers.

Deduce what you will from that.

Im trading in like 110+ worth of credit with nothing to get till next year really, lol.

Got pretty much every Wii U game I want and only ones im on the fence about is Tekken Tag and maybe Marvel or Black Ops 2 (never played a CoD game)

Trading in Bully and Namco Museum for the 360 tomorrow morning. I'll get $30 credit...heck, I think I paid maybe $20 for both games 3-4 years ago!

These prices are almost tempting me to pay retail for need for speed on 360 just so I can use it with the wheel I just got from that BB dotd. $30 is probably the highest I'd get for my ps3 copy (and is also a profit over black friday). But paying retail is usually reserved for what cag's call suckers. Wonder how long Sly will hold it's value.

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.

Sly sales for 39.99 used still at gamestop. likely will hold its value unless Sony decides to run another print on it.

Im tempted to trade mine but god damn it, I went through a lot of work to get that game at Wal-mart black friday after losing out on Amazon twice, lol.

I think you can still buy it for 17 new shipped from NewEgg (if anyone still wants a reasonably priced copy).

You need to be a pro member to get the prices (can be the free one)


You need to be a Power Up Rewards member to get these values, not pro. Pro is the paid one, and it will get you an extra 10% on top of these values.

A little off topic here, but I heard a while ago that if you pay for an item in all trade-in credit, they don't charge you tax. Is this true, or did I misread?

Depends on which state you are in.

Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

I traded in Hitman: Blood Money and WWE 13. I can't believe that at this point they are giving $20 TIV on a game that was made in 2006! I'm glad I held onto it for that long. I'm pretty sure the only reason is because the new Hitman game came out so maybe people want to pick up the earlier copies for the continuation of the story.

Also went to Kmart and picked up a few copies of Portal 2 to flip for a profit. The TIV is so tempting I'm considering selling my copy that I've had since day 1.

I say trade them. 22$ after the extra 10% from the pur card aplied makes each copy 100% profit over cost. Im getting 66$ for my 3 copys which is sweet !

Okay, quick question- Is the Trade In Credit only for Pre Owned games or anything at GameStop ? The reason I am asking this is I traded in Madden and Sly for 45$ credit but the store employe thinks that's the 50% bonus credit which is actually less than 45$ but insists its the same and says it's towards pre owned games only. Any light on this would be appreciated!

The values you got are based on the promotion, which I think the link is in the OP. (Here it is for you again www.poweruprewards.com/PUR/Index/TradeValues). The 50% is a separate promotion than this one. You can show the employee the link provided if he/she is still confused.

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

I traded in 2 copies of Forza Horizon without having to show a receipt. It depends on your store I guess.

Thanks! That's what I assumed. But the guy at the desk, as usual, acted bossy and insisted it was only towards pre owned copies even after I showed him the online link . I realized it was better to keep my mouth shut and walk out instead of continuing it with him.

Yeah, same thing happened to me i just let him keep talkin then after he added my pur card and insisted i trade towards a pre-owned game , baaaammm it popped up on the system and he said "oh looks like your pur card did do something" and he was shocked , mightve been why i called 2 hours later and he refused to let me trade in duplicate copys now hah . When i first call in the morning they were fine w/ doing duplicate /: but i didnt have any yet.
