Really tempted to trade in Metroid Prime as well even if I could get more on ebay. I do not think I want to deal with trying to sell it on there. I only paid $10 for it from Best Buy. Never played it and I know I never will.


You shouldn't have to deal with eBay. I'm sure there are plenty of CAGs here that would buy it off you for $40. And cash is always better than GS credit.

BUSTED! I actually just like to wake up at 7AM and type up insane trade in values to rustle everyone's jimmies.

Awesome, no hurry on this since it says guaranteed trade in values until 12/16. Schwing!

Holy crap... $15 for the original AC is insane. I wish they had a deal for Borderlands GotY and Lollipop Chainsaw on the PS3.

No definitely trade today if you can. Last sale like this saw certain games removed and/or nuked.

They can change it at any time (it's in the fine print) and have done in the past.

I think that is probably the case b/c I got an email about UFC being $20 and I did buy it at GS with some credit when it first came out. I have few of the sports games listed that I want to unload b/c I never seem to play them.


Yes, it is the case. My email was for Sly collection. Thing is, they should know I had already traded that one back in to them earlier. However, I don't think I bought anything else on the list from them so they had to use something I guess.

I have a theory that they are trying to bolster their inventory in some of the top rated games for the console because of the next system coming in being fully backwards compatible.

$335 nice! what will you do with that credit?


I probably won't trade em all, but worst case, I save it for the next Xbox.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

Man these are awesome TIVs! I'm curious, though- will we only get these higher values if we were sent the list of TIVs in an email from Gamestop? I clicked the link above and can see the list just fine, but I can't seem to find it on my own after logging into my Power Up Rewards account or just by clicking around poweruprewards.com, so maybe the TIVs won't be adjusted to the higher levels after scanning my rewards card in store if I didn't get the email sent to me?

Is that a possibility?

Looks like I will be getting paid $3 to play Lego LOTR. I got it from Amazon on BF for $30 and already platinumed it. Now since I a a pro member I'll gladly swap it for $33 in credit. I bought it with an amazon gift card to begin with.

Really tempted to trade in Metroid Prime as well even if I could get more on ebay. I do not think I want to deal with trying to sell it on there. I only paid $10 for it from Best Buy. Never played it and I know I never will.

I thought about selling my sealed copy a few months ago and similar auctions on ebay were ending around 110. Saw GS selling this used for 70 back then as well.

Thanks op!

The problem with Gamestop trade-ins is that they never have good deals to spend the credit on.

That's become the negative, I find better prices on new games at other stores more often now. And with trade-in values like these, they'll probably raise the prices of used games even more.

Considering trading in my 2nd copy of Borderlands 2 for $33. Has TIV been higher at some point at Best Buy? I got it for $20 from Amazon so I wouldn't be losing anything.

Hmm, looking into some potential Best Buy to Gamestop flips given these awesome TIVs.

So far I see:

Assassin's Creed
Alice Madness Returns
Bully Scholarship Edition
Half Life- Orange Box
Portal 2
Sly Collection

There are probably more, but I'm lazy. The profit margin isn't all that good for these also. Generally a few bucks.

Hitman is $39.96 at Walmart B&M

Resident Evil is 39.99 at Amazon


And your point? I cant trade a game I paid $15 for to get those free at those retailers.

I see at the bottom it says "Does not work with any other offer" but just want to double check...

You guys think it would work with the PUR rewards deal of the week "50% more trade in values"?

You guys are right, from the fine print:

GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the offer for any reason without notice.

That is so shitty, they say guaranteed until 12/16 but then add that in the fine print.

The problem with Gamestop trade-ins is that they never have good deals to spend the credit on.


That's why I follow two rules. Either trade at the time there is a deal you want, or trade knowing you are going to use the credit for something you'll be fine paying MSRP for. For me, I'm fine paying MSRP for points cards or for the select few releases I want on launch. I also want to build up credit for the likely launch of the next xbox and/or playstation next fall.

You would need to go to 2 seperate stores and trade in 1 copy per store.

Gamestop also sells steam cards now, so if you know you'll be buying something in the winter sales it can be a great deal.

They ALWAYS add that to the fine print like every other retailer to protect themselves. What if GF or Amazon has a sale on some of these older games for $5 or something? Then they get like 5 million new trade-ins for Blitz 2 or something.
