I already bought Borderlands 2 and now need to get rid of that disc.  I'm not seeing anything else to do that with, though, as the prices aren't quite low enough on the other games (and no, I'm not going to do or even discuss the foreign account thing).

 

I could do AC III but I'd lose a buck on that one on the surface - though I'd essentially be converting my cheap MS points into GS/Amazon credit so it might be worth it.

Why not trade it directly to Amazon and take advantage of the $10 preorder coupon bringing your total to $22.62 (including $10 coupon).

Cuz you would need a time machine to initiate that trade in.

Anyone else having trouble with the PowerUp site? I can't access any of my coupons or points because it keeps telling me to activate a card. I already have a card activated and tried re-entering my current one but that doesn't work. Also the steal of the week link to the catalog just keeps reloading the front page. Am I the only one with this problem or are others experiencing it right now?

I'm sure you mean 6/30/13, but...it is a known issue that coupons will disappear on the last day they are valid. Not sure why your other coupon disappeared. With normal coupons they would either refund the points or issue another coupon. I'm not sure what they'll do in this situation. Let us know what they do for you.

 

Thanks for your response Klimb, I never read about that issue before.  Also, I did mean 6/30, not 6/31.   :D   I should never post prior to finishing my first cup of coffee.


Selling on Amazon as Gaming Cheaply

 

Please feel free to PM me if there is a game you want to purchase cheaper than Amazon Warehouse or Gamestop.

My wife called to say that one of the Gamestops in town here have a big banner advertising 50% trade in bonus. I am in Fayetteville, NC. I know what I am doing this evening.

At least one store in metro Detroit is also running 50% bonus.  Note, this bonus is good on games only -- not good on accessories or consoles.

Out of curiosity does Gamestop charge a refurb fee or anything if you brought a game in a generic DVD case?  My stuff's usually pristine so I've never encountered this.

They shouldn't. I have never been charged a refurb fee at any Gamestop for trading in disc-only but people have posted about it. If it happens just try a different employee or different GS.

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.

Hmm, well I'm thinking about swapping these God of War discs out of their cardboard sleeves and into the PS3 cases while I have the opportunity.

I am guessing you are referring to the ones that come bundled with the GOW bundle. You can swap them out or take them in the sleeves but you should be fine as long as the discs are not scratched to hell.

Does the 50% Bonus coupon for new/existing sign-ups work on console trade-ins? Would be nice to trade-in my old fat 360 for $90.

Note: I don't have the coupon yet (need to figure out if its worth the sign-up) so I can't simply read the coupon to find exclusions/limitations.

Yeah but I'm keeping the GoW games, I meant put them in cases of PS3 games I'm trading and take the trade games in generic cases.  Bothers me to no end having them in cardboard.

Define a bunch.  I've traded in two identical systems before with no issue.  If it's like 18 they may have an issue.

good to know so I don't bother. 

however, just fyi, sometime last year the big Union Sq store had a 50% banner but that was likely due to the Bestbuy taking a lot of their trades

Nope.  I just did this myself.  I have some games I wanted to put in cases and didn't want to give Gamestop my nice PS3 and 360 cases. I kept my cases, and put the games I traded in, in stupid generic DVD cases, and was charged NO refurb fee.

 

Values as of Today: (base values)

 

Dragon Age Ultimate :360: $10

Borderlands 2 :360: $8

MLB 2K12 $4 :ps3: (easy flip from Target clearance)

 

Flipped the games, turned into Amazon gift card, now used to buy additional Microsoft points.  And now rebuying BL2 for 800 pts and DA:O for 400 pts! SCore!

Unless I am missing something, the spoiler for the coupon does not specifically state if it would apply to console trade-in's so I was trying to see if anyone had received the extra 50% bonus on a recent trade. 

 

From OP:

"Not valid toward cash trades. Trades must be in full working condition to receive full value. Defective items may be eligible for trade at a lesser value. Trades subject to manager approval. Offer valid only toward items normally accepted in trade. Cannot be combined with any other offer. See store associate for details. Void where prohibited. GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend with or without notice."

 

Given some of the reported trade-in values for the consoles, they would not be making money on the trade (the main goal of the business). I really do not want to lug in a system (possibly 3 systems) only to get turned down.

I think I should be ok with three, then.
