My e-mail said that I can trade Black Version 2 and White Version 2 for $25 credit each and it says "Pros get 10% more" under each one.

Wow. That actually would be an amazing deal if it's true. I bought them for less at GameStop not too long ago. The problem is that I contacted CS regarding a defective Black Version 2 and I got sent another one. I don't know how they make notes of these things. If they don't do it right, then it looks like I'm trying to run scams.

Got that trade email with these games for PS3:

Metal Gear HD Collection: $20
Rock Band 3: $20
Dirt Showdown: $12.50
Heavy Rain Director's Cut: $12.50

Not sure if these are base or not.

Traded in Kinect sports (6 base) and kinect star wars (7 base) 4/26
Received regular 30% promo for buying used game on kinect star wars but got a different promo on kinect sports which got me an extra 6.50 plus my .60 pur bonus. So I got over 100% promo.

In other news the manager who rang me got a puzzled look on his face and said "I've never seen this before." and then showed me my PUR savings that was over $2000. He seemed bothered so may be getting flagged as a dealer soon.

I wouldn't think much of it; last time I was quoted 4k+ and lionized at the spot. I always roll back my eyes and say "wow, I must have spent 10x that".

FYI, Halo 4 has a bonus that made it $34.19 after PUR 10%. I had the guy add it on temporarily when I traded in RDR to check. So it seems to not be specific to the games in the email. But probably PUR specific.

Edit: yeah, it was a 100% bonus on RDR GOTY because the 10% gave me $1 extra while promo #14693 gave me the extra $10/100%

Funnily the guy asked if I wanted the 1 year warranty on Links Crossbow for $1 after it ringing up for $.23

Did you get either of those games in an email?
There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

So based on those numbers fire emblem is getting only a 25% trade bonus

Gamestop emailed me
360 Red Dead Redemption GOTY TIV $20 in store credit and 10% extra for PUR
Xenoblade $45, 10% for PUR
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn $35, 10% for PUR
Offer valid 4/26/-4/28

I guess these values are with promo applied already. Red Dead would be a good flip from Kmart.

I dont think so I received prom 14615 which is the 30% promo on 2 games and but only the 14696 promo which got me the extra 100+% on kinect sports which im assuming is on the list. If they stacked i would had both promos on Kinect sports.

how'd you get a 100% bonus on Kinect Sports? I just got the 30% for preordering. Perhaps has something to do with these targeted emails?

also last I heard (few weeks ago) my "savings" was a bit over $1000. I wonder what number starts to raise flags.

It also seems some employees check my history (or it pops up and only some care) which is when they quote my savings or what games I bought/tradedin/preorded. One guy was mad when he saw I renewed at a different store as well

weird, I traded in LoZ:SS today and it must be part of this credit boost.

bonus: 10.00 Promo #14690
bonus: 2.00 PUR

Total: $32

That makes the base $20 which is the same as earlier reports. Nice surprise as I expected $28 ($20 base + 30% trade in towards PO + 10% PUR) and a PO copy of Wii Fit.

Got some info I'll be putting into the main post here in a second:

In 4 markets from April 30-June 9 there's going to be a change to Powerup Pro subscriptions/renewals. I believe it's the 4 markets that first beta tested PUR, but not sure on that. I know my market (STL) beta tested PUR and now this.

The base price of PUR Pro is staying at $14.99 but that is only for a digital subscription to the magazine. If you want the physical magazine, it will come with the digital sub, but at a price of $19.99. This affects all new subs/renewals in the 4 markets for the above period, with a likely national rollout later this year.

No matter how much you complain in the four markets this is happening in, store managers, area managers, district managers, whatever, will be unable to get you a print subscription for $14.99.

If you're wanting print, I would suggest renewing your PUR Pro this weekend before this kicks in.

He says if we want print without paying $19.99 we should subscribe right now. However, when I've resubscribed in the past you will lose issues of the magazine if you resubscribe while you're still subscribed. They overlap your sub. I would just wait until your sub is done and pay the extra $5.

I'm a little annoyed that I haven't gotten one of these emails that it seems everyone else got. I've definitely bought stuff there recently. Is it only for new games you guys bought, or used as well? But I have bought some new stuff via GS.com even.

does anyone know if you get 10% bonus for trading in an ipad with PUR card?


No, but you will get the extra $20 for being a PUR member. The standard bonus on $125+ for an Electronics trade is $50, but PUR members get $70.

Well, I'm not 100% sure about the magazine, but they don't shorten your subscription so I wouldn't think the magazine would be shorted either. My renewal from yesterday has my new expiration date being the end of June, 2014. On the other hand, it is kind of annoying that they've been bugging me to renew since early April. They used to start doing that only the month it was expiring. Now it seems they start 3 months before (and it has been every clerk on every transaction - one of the reasons I went ahead and did it yesterday in addition to rewarding the clerk who took my iPhone as "Like New" was to shut them up about it for a while!

This is working like the promos they did over the holidays where its just a bump up and the 10% applies to the base value. I did not get an email at all with games in it but I still got the Bumps on Kinect Spots and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom. 12 for Kinect Sports and 15 for Capcom.

:360: Kinect Sports - $6
:360: Kinect Sports Season Two - $12
