I came across another blockbuster so I decided to check it out for possible flips...nothing.

As I headed back to my car with my head down in despair, I glance up and notice a pawn shop across the street...so I decide to give it a chance.

Alice Madness Returns for $10
Assassins Creed for $7
Left for Dead 2 for $7
New Super Mario DS for $10

I buy them all and skip back to my car like a joyful little girl and proceed to trade them in at gamestop for $68.

Probably in a pile of Gamestop gift cards. I know whenever I trade in, I make them put each dollar on a separate card. I plan on filling a swimming pool so I may swim through my vast in-store credit wealth!

As soon as the PUR info is entered into the computer, either by scanning the card or the employee looking up your info in the system, the promo credit amount will come up on all valid titles.

Very smart idea. Maybe I should go hit up my local pawn shops...

Did you really buy Taco Bell Gift cards? I knew they had some non-Gamestop, non-Gaming gift cards now. What other restaurants/retailers do they offer?

thinking about trading in Sly Collection and picking up a $20 psn card. Use that for Okami HD...

I never got a chance to play sly :(


Too bad there aren't any easy flips around

No lol, im actually saving for a Vita or gonna get some Kindle cards if I find some, since supposedly some gamestops carry them and they can be used on Amazon regularly correct?

I saw some burger king gifts cards also, cant remember what else.

This is probably one of the funniest things I've read in a while. I could not stop laughing at the thought of someone swimming in Gamestop gift cards.



Anyways, I went to Blockbuster to look for some flips (I want $60 for Black Ops 2 for Wii-U) but there was nothing. So today ended up being a bust. I might hit up a couple pawn shops tomorrow to see if they have anything.

Best buy is selling the Dualshock 3 Killzone Trilogy Pack for $40.
Gamestop is buying the Killzone Trilogy for $25 in store credt.

Thats 15 Dollars for a Dualshock 3 in Camo. Just though I would point that out if no one hasn't yet.

Traded in Borderlands 2, NCAA 13 and Portal 2 for Little Big Planet Vita and a 16gb Vita Memory Card. I know I could get that card for 45 on Amazon instead of 60 at Gamestop but oh well. I need the card now and didn't want to keep credit at Gamestop considering that I buy all my games at Best Buy using the Gamers Unlocked Preorder Promo train to basically get new releases for $40 each.....

Traded in dead island goty, gow saga, sly, halo 4, silent hill HD and killzone trilogy. Replaced killzone with the controller bundle from BBY. Added some 360 batteries and cables and got $155 after the 10%. Now that will sit there until they offer kindle gift cards or I want something at MSRP like a new console next year.

It's not about being obsessed with flips, it's about trying to get games for cheap out of pocket. This is CAG right?
