I want to be sure I am reading the promo right. The trade 3 get $10 extra promo reads like for every 3 games you trade you will get the $10 so I should be able to bring in 6 games and get $20? I really want to just do this in one trade instead of having to go across the street to trade 3 other games.

Yes.

If not, there is nothing stopping you from trading in 3 games at a time at the same store.

From my experiences, most of the employees there want you to maximize your credit. Or at least, in my experiences it has always been that way. I'm sure someone else has stories...

Yep there is one in a strip mall and then one in an actual Mall across the street. There is also a BBY. It was my triangle of trade for a long time.

There was one area by me that had 4 of them within a 1/2 mile. 2 in strip malls across from each other and 2 in the actual mall. They closed down 2 of them recently.

The trade in value for older XBox 360s appears to be effectively $12 before bonus now.

I traded in a 360 Arcade Model, and the guy took off a $28 refurb fee. I explained that the system both looks and functions perfectly, and he said that the manager has a blanket policy to deduct the $28 fee for all XBoxs except the new black model, because even if it doesn't have the RROD now, it probably will. This policy is asinine, if they don't trust any of the older models, why not just make the credit $12 to start with?

I called Gamestop's customer service number on their website a few minutes ago and spoke to Brian, and rather than helping me or realizing how stupid this is, he confirmed that this is their corporate policy. He said they can't list every XBox SKU in their system, so they just put everything under the $40 value, and deduct $28 for the older systems.


This is not true. 360's only have a refurb fee added if they red ring/error code, won't read discs, etc. Try to go to another store if you can or call corporate again.

I've been in several malls where there was 2 Gamestops. This is due usually to one of the Gamestops being a former EB Games. It makes trading multiple copies of a game very easy.

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.

My area was like that. Two in the mall, and two more within a half mile. Now one of he mall ones closed, but there's still the three left. Plus another five stores within a ten mile radius.

I'll probably have enough credit after the 50% and getting through the backlog to get a 3DS XL without paying out of pocket....but I'm trying to hold off for some kind of sale- has GS had a good sale price/bundle on the XL yet?

CoD4:MW1 $3

Call of Juarez: The Cartel $4.50
Spec Ops:The Line $8
Dead to Rights:Retribution $3
Resident Evil:ORC $3
Halo 3 $3
FF13 $2.50
Forza 3 $2

Found out that a $2 game would not trigger the $10 promo. He tried on 2 different registers with a couple combos of games. So I guess it needs to be $2.25?

Yea I had a stack of 15 games and the 4 $2 games would not trigger the promotion. I walked away. Called corporate and after some "investigation" and calling the store seems the value has to be $2.01 for the promotion to be activated.

Since I had the policy confirmed by corporate over the phone, I decided to write out a complaint in my survey response. I will post again if anyone bothers to respond.

The offer says $10 more for every 3 games you trade in so I'm pretty sure its a no.

Every other time I've seen this deal it has just involved games.
Also, as others have noted they must have a TIV at or above $2.01.

They need to either fix the promo to include $2.00 games or change the wording.

"Games with a trade value less than $2.00 are excluded from offer." $2.00 games should be eligible if that's the language they're using (I realize it's not ringing up that way).

Is there a limit of how many copies of the same game we can trade in? I think its two, today one employee was being kinda a meanie pants she was asking me where I got two copies of sims 3 and I told her my older brother bought them to me as gifts (I was employee of the month!) and she said she can only do one copy because her manager told her they can't accept the same game twice. I was cool but she kept asking me questions on how my brother got two copies of the same game I ended up saying sometimes people buy two of the same gifts like itune gift cards or even two 10$ bills. I am quite a nice person but today one person pushed buttons that didnt need to.

I am not sure. PUR does track your purchases so if you go to the same store maybe you will be able to do it by pulling up you PUR account?

It depends on the employee that you're trading in to. I had no problem trading in 3 copies of Sims 3 to two different locations.
