So I noticed in the small print for the "gauranteed" $30 tiv for Gears that the game must still be $59.99 new for the trade promo to work. Does that mean if it goes on sale before 4/18 it nullifies the promo?

I'm pretty sure it means that while its on sale then its null. Once it goes back up to full price you're good to go.

No it will replace the 30% so you're just paying for the extra 20%, which could be worth it depending on the games being traded.


Thank you, That is exactly what I was afraid of. Have a nice day.

I recently used the Steal of the Week Gears of War 50% Trade In bonus. Since I have no interest in the game (and do not own a 360) am I going to have any issue returning my sealed copy, or am I going to have to prepare to argue? Anyone have a similar experience?

It depends on which store you visit, but I had no problems returning the copy I bought just to get the 50% bonus credit for several games I traded in. You might not need to, but you could always say that you'd like to save your money for all of the releases coming later in the year.

I just did exactly this but returned it to a different store. All they asked was why I was returning and I said my g/f bought me a copy of the game too.

Do you guys think Proto 2 will hold its value tomorrow?

I'd like to finish Proto 2 before I trade it in, but I'm not that enamored with it if the TIV will drop.

Great deals. A while back I found Monster Hunter Tri & Saints Row 2 at a pawn shop for $5 each. Then yesterday I picked up Prototype 2 at BB for $5.

I traded all those in and got $33, more than twice what I paid for them.

The trade 3, get $10 promo will still be active tomorrow (3/24), right? I'm thinking I might unload a few things and get HotS.

most of the time I'll distract the employee by asking for upcoming pre-orders and throw $5 bucks at one of them.

Wow might have to get a 50% coupon and trade my copy of White 2 that's a pretty nice bump.

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.

does anyone knows if the offer aplies for the cheaper than $2 games when you trade them along with the more than $2 games?... the promo is "get extra $10 when you trade 3 games" but the games should have more than a $2 value... so, if i trade 3 games that qualify and a couple $1 - $1,50 games, the promo aplies only to the tree games and the other ones are regular trade in value or all the games will have the "3.33 promo"?

Yes. I think everyone knows. I think even you know. "The promo is Trade 3 games that each trade for at least $2, and get a $10 bonus". It is not "Trade 3 or more games, get $3.33 bonus per game". If you trade 4 games, the 4th one does not get the bonus, regardless of whether it regularly trades for $1 or $30.

thanks for the answer my friend... but nope, the promo applies to more than 3 games... the last time i saw this promo, i traded in more than 3 games an got the promo (extra 3.33 for each game) BUT all my games where between $5 and $9, so i did not trade a lesser value game... i will try tomorrow and see what happen...

ok, i have my recip from 12/12/12 haha... funny but true

i traded 6 games and got the promo.. im sure i have another recip when i traded more than 6 cause i did not wanted to trade all the games in one store cause i tough it was only 3 games per transaction to get the deal...


Off topic:... i tought about the "12/12/12" on my recip and i traded "6" games and 3 of the games where around "$6"... so i have in my recip the 12/12/12 traded 6 games and 3 games 6 6 6 xD... its creepy xD

The promo applies to every set of three games. So, if you have six, it will apply to all six.

And if a Refurb Fee gets hit to any of the 3 games and makes it go below $2, the bonus isn't applied :(

Yes, 6 is a multiple of 3.

I also believe this to be correct, as long as your games are in multiples of three you will be fine.

Man White Version 2 has climbed a lot. It was $11 back when they were running the 50% now $17? Crazy. Is there a reason for this? Or is it just random?
