Anyone want to help me out. I went today to gamestop and some new employee was there and I think he kept screwing up my trade. The base values were as followed:

Darksiders 2 360 and Ps3 - $14 and $15
Xcom Ps3- $16
Homefront 360 - $1.50
Black ops 2 360 - $23

He totaled my trade and it came to $81. I was using a 50% extra trade in coupon towards Gears of War Judgement. So if my math was correct (which Im pretty sure it is) should it not be around $110? I think what was happening was the 3 for an extra $10 somehow jumped in and the extra 50% only applied to the other two which was Homefront and one of the Darksiders. He kept telling me the computer always automatically gives you the best trade deal. But I know from experience this is not the case.

See this post where someone mentioned the GOW:J coupon wasn't working and would not work until after midnight tonight. This may be the case with your trade.

Wat. Darksiders 2 PS3 gets higher trade value?
EDIT: Damn. I wish I would've known.

Well that totals $69.50, so 50% on top of that would be about $105. It'd be around $110 if you add in the 10% for being a Power Up Member, so yeah... definitely not $81.

Thanks to those that responded! I guess I was not the only one with this problem. I will go ahead and do the trade again tomorrow and pick up the game as well. Does anyone know if I would still get the "preorder" stuff for judgement? Hopefully the manager is there since he always knows how to do everything unlike the regular employees which usually screw something up.

Edit: And yea I do have the Powerup Pro membership for the extra 10%.

Thanks, but you should report the base values for those games, not the after-promo values.

Tried using the coupon for Gears and like others, it did not work. I should have double checked it before but didn't (since normally it runs smoothly).

Sad thing is the normal 30% pre-order bonus didn't work either so I ended up with the 3/$10 promo..

Now I have to call GS CS tomorrow and hopefully they can figure out something to get this figured out.. the manager was really cool about helping me out it was just too close to closing to get any progress.

If the games were under a certain amount it's going to automatically give you the better promo which is the 3 for $10. I think all of your games would need to be above $11 or so for the 30% promo to be better. It's been somewhere around that mark in the past when promos like this overlap.

Yeah if the average per game trade in is above $11.11 then the 30% gives more credit. This also assumes you are trading in multiples of 3.

Does anyone know if Gamestop takes the Xbox 360 Audio Adapters for trade in? This is the adapter for the bigger size systems that lets you plug in an optical cable or RCA audio cables while an HDMI cable is plugged in at the same time. I would call, but it is too late now. I will call tomorrow though, but if anyone already knows, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'll ask them about it when I go to pick it up on Tuesday and report back. Thanks for the help.

I had just assumed it only applied when you actually did the initial pre-order, and assumed that's why I only get the 10% bonus. But this text message is making me question that.

So I went today and told them about how I traded a game in on Friday and didn't get the 30% extra credit. They looked at my receipt and were surprised, saying the computer should've caught that. Instead of giving me $3 credit, they just took $3 off of my Gears of War: Judgment purchase.

If anyone had an experience like me, you're supposed to get the 30% bonus for trade-in games that contribute to the pre-order that has the offer.

I hate to ask this, but could this maybe be added to the first post, or one of the initial posts, since I wasn't aware of this.
