has anyone had luck trading multiple copies of the same game?
do we just come back again later?

I'll let you know tomorrow. I'm assuming it depends on some store. If there's a manager there, then they will only limit one of the same copy.
My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

thanks. haha what qualifies the same game though. 360 and PS3 are considered different right -though it may be the same-

hoping to use the credit towards the PULSE headset (and maybe Persona 4)

If it's 360 and PS3, it should be fine. Does anyone know if GameStop has a system to see what you've recently trade in for credit?

As above, I did this just fine today, although the guy did say "You have two different versions of the same game... may I ask why?" but I guess that's just LP policy to ask. He was great after I explained how good the trade-in values were.

Although, I'm still surprised that they're raising eyebrows at different versions since Black Friday was so recent and there were so many good deals that entire weekend.

yes, they can check your transaction history but it won't pop up when you do a trade in. They actually have to click to another screen I think. So most likely, unless you're trying to trade in more than one at a time, you should be ok.

They have a way to check all activity on your powerup card, so I assume yes.

I see. just one last question
for deals like those trade-in something and get 50% bonus credit for -insert an item here-

do you have to get the item immediately or does the 50% bonus apply when you build up credit and buy the item later?

It's about time they actually give out a real deal this Christmas.

I check the sales and gamestop's always been pretty pathetic when I compare it to what I can get online. :/

Trade ins do not show up on the register. It's only purchases.

No. I don't know where the guy's getting his numbers, but these things routinely sell for $20-$30 on eBay.


This. Used, no matter the condition, does not fetch much. The completed listings only show new, sealed PS3 copies fetching $50+.

So I know people were talking about blockbuster having a 50% off under 19.95 used games to flip but is that already over? I didn't see anyone talking about it the past couple of days and don't want to stop on my lunch tomorrow if its already long gone.

read! just wanted to confirm... that the 50% applies at point of purchase (and that doesn't have to happen at the first point of trade-in but anytime?)

I read a post by someone saying it ended yesterday (12/11), but I can't personally confirm it.

So you guys actually paid to join Powerup Rewards?

edit- i guess its not so bad since it includes a yr sub to Gameinformer. I never buy used at GS though or shop there altogether.

What are everyones impressions of the program?

The $15 can save you so much money it's not even funny. Buy it. Renew it. Enjoy it.

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.

Totally worth it. It pretty much pays in its self when they have awesome trade in deals like now. Plus I really like GI, I seem to agree with them more then any other site/mag. I know you don't buy used but the B2G1 free coupon in used games can also pay in its self, and even if you don't want the used games you can just find something to flip to BB.

Last week when I did a trade in and I used some credit to renew, the cashier asked if I knew how much I saved with the pro membership. Turned out I've saved $600+ this year with the membership according to their records(probably popped up as a talking point to sell the membership to me). $15<$600 so I would say it's definitely worth it.

The guy couldn't believe my savings, called the manager I knew over to look. It was just over a $1000. I renewed, I like reading the magazine when I am on the toilet.

I went to Blockbuster yesterday and the 50% off used games was still going on. Picked up a couple of Madden 12's for the Wii to flip.

I used to have the pro membership but didn't take advantage much so I didnt renew. Now thinking back after traded in 2 copies of killzone trilogy, there you go I could have got $5 more :(

They're not supposed to stack!
The person with the receipt picture from a few pages back, clearly mentioned that his 'buddy' helped him/her override the defaults, and that's why he got all those to work.
GS promotions never, ever stack.
