If I were to hand them Forza first and then 3 other games, which aren't part of this increase, for the trade 3 get extra 10 deal they have going on right now would I get both promotions?

Yes, if the trade-in value for each of the other three games is at least $2.

In case of potential misunderstanding, I should rephrase--you won't get the $10 added to any game from this list, but only to those games not part of the list with trade-in values of at least $2. It's one promotion or the other (except for the 10% PUR bonus, which always stacks).

Yeah, that's what I was asking. Thanks.

I just wasn't sure if they would do 2 promotions, even if you weren't combining them, in the same trade-in.

You don't need to scan the physical card to get the value. Phone # is fine. Value will change after they look up your info. It's page 77 and we still got question like this and if the free PUR would work. =/

Couple of questions for anyone who knows.

1. Can you just walk in and sign up for RZ and do the trade at the same time?

2. A couple of games I got have never been opened (Forza Horizon, NBA 2K13) from the MS sale. Can I still trade them in used or should I open them before going to the store?

edit: nvm.

go in, trade in your sealed games, and ask them if u need to sign up for a reward zone acct.

then come back here and tell us how it went.

you are unworthy of the t-e-c-h.

1. Yes
2. Do you have your MS Store receipt/invoice? If not then no, if you do YMMV if they will take it or not. Easier just to open them prior to going to the store.

1. Excellent.
2. The MS invoice shouldn't matter right? I just want to get the price listed on the OP, not try to get a full price "refund". The games don't have to come from Gamestop to trade in right? They don't need a receipt from where you bought it. I know some places won't buy a used game if it is actually new. Kind of weird but whatever.

This is kind of a random question, but I can't find a general GS thread so here goes. Does anyone know if you pre-order a game online from them and have it delivered, if it's gutted (opened greasy case with a "new" disc taken from a sleeve in their drawers) or brand new in shrink wrap?

Pleasantly surprised with Gamestop.

I haven't traded in anything since like, 2005?

Madden 13 - $35
Forza Horizon - $35
Blitz: The League 2 - $15

Thank you OP

Just open it up. It's easier and it doesn't hurt. If you have games with bonuses inside (free DLC, free "rewards" points, other goodies) you can take those for free as well.

1. This isn't Best Buy

2. Your question doesn't make sense. If they aren't opened, they aren't used. Why would you try to trade a game in that hasn't been opened?

Few questions....

Do they sell games at GameStop or stops for games.
Yes!
I'm so glad I decided to open that $15 LBP Karting I got from Target. I guess I'd like it if I were under 10.
Thank you?
Ok.

Their trade in value is more than what I paid for. I could return it to MS store and get $15 for Forza or get $35 credit from Gamestop.

Which, considering it's Gamestop, amounts to $15 anywhere else. :rofl:
