If they're going to maintain a featured trade-in value section on their website and list the values as being current to a specific date they should have the decency to actually update it when stuff drops. Fire Emblem dropped a couple days ago didn't it?


You are absolutely right, BrandonJ33. I was about to go on another tirade, but I checked the GS page in question and they finally updated the TIV. But I am not about to let them off that easily. We are talking about a $8 drop in TIV relative to a $10 drop in price... Think about it: have you ever received $8 in credit for a game you purchased from them for $10? I think a $3 dollar drop would have been more consistent. At least I can console myself that my %50 extra in credit was ultimately gained by my trade-in going towards the purchase of a $3.00 game.

Would have been a $25 game had they given the advertised amount of credit.

Never Ever play with gamestop and TIV's

Always wise to unload the same day you made up your mind to sell.

Ha. Unless it's Pokemon Soul Silver and there's not a good trade in bonus. If I would've waited, I would've gotten at least $10 more lol.

Does anyone know of any good Gamestop to Best Buy flips? I have a few games I want to trade in that I'll get more for at Gamestop with the 50% bonus.

Even if the trade is for the same value at Best Buy, that would be cool. I get the 10% bonus for GCU.

Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, I checked the flip thread and it doesn't exist anymore. I had it bookmarked so I know it's not there anymore!

Dynasty Warriors 7 PS3 can be bought for $14.40 at Gamestop with birthday coupon and PUR and traded to Best Buy for $16.80 after GCU. That is about the only decent transfer I could find.

Awesome thanks! Glad I accidentally ordered LoZ from Amazon now lol. I added it to my cart just to check inventory and forgot to take it out when I ordered something else. Should be coming in later today...

Where is this influx of Mario Party and Super Princess Peach coming from? I've seen a lot of reports on values lately.

Alright, looks like Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U was $23 after all. I picked up Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and got the extra 50% for the full $34.50 value.

I wanted to pick up a few DS games but they don't seem to have them with cases. Lame.

Get used to it--an employee told me that they're being forced to phase out cases for :ds: games over time, so cart-only will be all you can get at GS eventually.

How often does GameStop do these 50% bonus trade ins? It looks like they did another one back in February but I don't know if I wanna invest now for the next one.
