NEW THREAD LOCATED HERE: http://www.cheapassg...ards-come-back/

 

WHEN REPORTING TRADE-IN VALUES PLEASE POST BASE VALUES & SYSTEM IT IS FOR.

First post contains promo information & useful information and frequently asked questions. Second post has the values for games/hardware for Microsoft devices. Third post has the values for games/hardware for Nintendo consoles and the fourth post has the values for Nintendo handhelds. Fifth post has the values for games/hardware for Sony consoles and the sixth post has the values for Sony handhelds.

Instructions on finding games in the database and inputting the values from different sections can be found in my blog post here: http://www.cheapassg...log.php?b=14143. I would put the entire post in the thread but this is already kind of a large post.

WHEN POSTING VALUES:

Please try to follow the example below if possible. If you feel the need to use the system icons, please only use them once at and at the top of the list. Also always post the system it's for even if it's only on one system. I may not always know it.

So what are the maximum values to maximize the 3/5/7 trade, that is to make them better than a 50% or 30% promo or whatever?

With 3 / 5 /7 you get an extra $10 / $20 / $35

so break it down to an extra $3.33 / $4 / $5 per game

at 50% a $10 game gets $5 bonus and 30% its $3

same $10 game 3 / 5 is better than 30% whereas 7 is a tie with 50%

Basic math will get you your answers

Minimum base to qualify for 3 / 5/ 7 is $3 anything less is excluded from 3 / 5 /7

  Tradelist   (mostly Nintendo / Sony)  

May DealSeeker continue to guide us through dark voids, lead us not into tempting terrible deals, and deliver us from EA.

Couple questions about the kindle cards - 1) does amazon do release date delivery for consoles? 2) does amazon usually do console launch promos for multiple game purchases or the purchase credit for single purchases?

1. Nothing concrete yet if you are refering to PS4 and Infinity. Probably we will know more on this after E3 since Amazon's page says nothing on this for now.
2.1 Amazon usually does promo credit for preordering single games but I have yet to see them for new console games.
2.2 Too soon to tell but their could be a bundled deal for launch by retailers if not the publishers.

It will show up in your "Active Offers" along with your B2G1 free coupon under your Poweruprewards account. It could take couple of days after renewing for it to show up.

Traded in some games this morning. Was surprised by some of the trade in values - I got back nearly what I paid for quite a few of them!

:360:
Tiger Woods 13 - $10
Dead Space 2 - $5
Dead Island (non-GOTY) - $6
Kingdoms of Amalur - $13

:ps3:
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - $5

:wii:
Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon - $6
Backyard Baseball 2010 - $2
Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant - $5

$95.50 total in credit after PowerUp and promo.

All of the :360: games I got for around $10-15... so after you add the $5/game from the promo, I came out ahead on those. I definitely paid a lot more for the Wii and PS3 games, but I just needed to get rid of those.

Love these trade x get $x promos. I don't buy brand new games - at least for consoles - until they drop in price, which means the TIV's are usually very low. This is the best way for me to get some value back from these games.

Local store had Kindle gift cards, plenty of them (Islandia, NY). I will probably get those eventually, but for now I kept the credit. I was feeling friendly and chatting with the guy at the store, so I let him put down a preorder for Pokemon X. The store had just opened and I was the first customer of the day, so I figured I'd help the guy out. I'll keep an eye out for a deal but if all else fails I can get it there.

Yeah pretty much what I already knew. Just trying to figure out a way to do it before E3 in case they're gone again. I don't see an advantage to amazon if you're only buying games and you have amazon tax.

Also would $28 be a good spot to dump dualshocks? Have three extra ones now.

$10 base. $1 more with PUR. $5 if traded with 6 others or if you have a 50% coupon. So 10+1+5=$16.

I've never traded at GS before, maybe someone can help me out...with the "30% towards" promotion. How does that work? If I traded in 7 games towards The Last of Us, do I technically have 30% more to use on that pre-order then get reimbursed the remainder + $35 from the 3/5/7 deal?

Ex:
Trade in 7 games worth $60
Apply $60 toward The Last of Us.
$60 +30% = $78
After tax remainder = ~$13
At this point do I get a gift card for $13 + $35 from 3/5/7 deal? For a total of $48?

You get one or the other; 30% or the 3/5/7 bonus, not both. The system will usually select the one that nets the most for you.
