LOL, point taken guys. Actually it IS the first time I've traded at GameStop in at least years as I generally collect games rather than cycle through them. That's one of the reasons my backlog is so big and why I have such a collection of vintage games still. I'm a collector at heart, yes, but I did buy that same game twice on Black Friday as I first got it at Wal-mart for 24 and then from Microsoft for 15 with the intent of getting a refund. I took it to GS because the trade-in is actually more than I paid for it.

Ant, btw, I got it for my 8 and 11 year-old (not to say I might enjoy it as well).

Got a bit of a problem:

My $23 Amazon copy of Assassin's Creed 3 that I ordered got stuck in shipping even though I usually get prompt deliveries, and the Gamestop trade in promo ends on Dec. 15. Can I just buy Assassin's Creed 3 ps3 from Best Buy and trade that in to Gamestop while I wait on my Amazon order that is expected to arrive on Tuesday? The only hiccup would be if Best Buy refuses the return for some reason, but I'm premier silver. Are both Amazon and Best Buy editions identical? ISBN, etc? Is a sealed copy of Assassin's Creed 3 ps3 easy to return at Best Buy?

Some games have different bar codes from different retailers, especially the games with content inside the box that comes with exclusive things for each retailer. If Best Buy had anything exclusive for preordering/buying early, it most likely has a different bar code. The only way to know for sure is to go to Best Buy, look at the bar code of a copy in the store, and then ask someone for the bar code of a copy they received from Amazon to be 100% sure. As long as the bar code for the one you are returning is the same as the one you bought, and it is still sealed, returning to Best Buy is easy. They should give you no issues.

I stopped in to trade in a few more tonight (Portal 2 from Kmart that I decided to not keep and a Hip-Hop Experience I picked up for $1 at Goodwill) and fortune shined upon me in the form of perfect timing.

I said boo-urns.

This promo has been a real boon to us CAGs. I've traded in $200 worth of games and even bought the same games back for cheap using my B2G1 coupon for renewing my subscription.

Dang! Nice work sir. I snagged a few games from clearance at Target, 1 copy Portal 2, a game or two from VGfive, and one game from 99gamers. With the few others I have I hoping to get around $120 in credit



I may have to swing by Target again or see if anyone is dumping just dance on CAG

Is there a limit to how many per sku you can trade in? Say I traded in halo 4 one day. Would I be able to trade in another copy later that week?

Gta 4 (standard edition) is on sale on amazon and best buy for 9.99 right now for both xbox and ps3, so if you don't really care about having the "complete" edition you can trade it in for 20, and pick up 1 of the 9.99 ones which is what im gonna do.

I think this is my list:

AC ($5 at G-sale)
ACIII ($23 AZ)
DI GOTY ($8 BB)
RDR GOTY ($20 at BB, but I accidentally bought 2) could use some more GS credit
Last story ($25 at amazon, but they sent me the reprint) could use some more GS credit
Madden
NCAA (I just won another copy anyway)

The last 4 are NEW, but I'm not sure I want to bother trying to sell them.

I have a used Smash Bros sitting here that I am thinking about trading in as well. I never opened 'sly', but I think I am going to keep it.

I might trade in B2, since it will have a GOTY anyway.

I have a clear memory of being a kid selling stuff at EB games. A girl came in and was going to trade her Sega genesis in, I offered her $10 more than the clerk. He snapped at me "no you can't do that!" And then wouldn't take my trade ins. My first bad experience with eb games....

I sent my NES, GameBoy and games to FuncoLand for a $90 check to buy school clothes. This was around 1991. 5 years later I tried to sell my Genesis to FuncoLand (B&M) but they did not give cash. Only store credit. I sold it to the employee for $40. I needed to buy diapers for my newborn.

Dear lord, is this a true story?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Not blaming, but I was 10, and the guy couldn't have been more rude.

Cag mobile is always jacked for me. The go to last page button sometimes doesn't work, and even when clicking go to page xxx, goes there for a split second then it loads the first page. Anyone else have that problem?
