Very nice match. Bad white block highlight in op. wish they did this for playstation gamers.

 

sorry, I posted it on Slickdeals and then I copied and pasted but it came out like crap.

 

I'll try to adjust it to be easier on the eyes.

Awesome! No 30 day limit either? I did't see it at first glance. If that is the case, I'm buying Madden for 360, trading it in on November 15th or so, then getting Madden for One!

I didn't come across it. 

 

And you don't have the purchase the game from Amazon, like you do at GS, unless I missed that.

The first sentence says for same title.

 

But in the terms + conditions, doesn't say it has to be exact.

Same here.  of course, I also would love it if they didn't confine you to staying with the same platform as I would likely do this with a few 360 games and go to PS4.

4. When your trade in is accepted, add a qualifying Xbox One game to your cart.

5. Your bonus credit will be applied automatically to your purchase.

 

Depends on your personal situation, but I think this deal is inferior to Gamestop's mainly because you can walk out of the store, same day, with the next gen version at Gamestop.  For Amazon's deal, you have to wait for the item to be received and credit applied to your account (usually over 1 week, including shipping time).

 

Since Amazon will start charging me tax starting in November, I've already placed pre-orders at GS for anything that releases after Nov 1.

 

 

Edit:

 

And you don't have the purchase the game from Amazon, like you do at GS, unless I missed that.

 

Wow.  This might change things if there are good deals at GS and BB....   *wink wink*

It's funny how positive and excited are for this when Amazon is matching Gamestop, but with the Gamestop thread it seemed split between where half the people thought it was a good deal and half the people thought it was stupid. I think this is a great deal and happy to see Amazon matching, especially when online progress will be carried over from current Gen to next. I wonder if this isn't happening on the PS4 because the October 21st release date rumor is true, I guess we will find out tomorrow at Gamescon. Thanks for the post OP!

best buy has all of these titles (except need for speed) with $10 certs for pre ordering. so you can upgrade to the xbone version for the price of tax

Great call.  If you want the upgraded version Day1, that ain't gonna happen.

(And I suspect one week may be generous.)

 

Still, this makes the Anniversary deal - with NFL Sunday Ticket package - look better and better.  Essentially $110 for Madden for Xbox One or Playstation 4, with 10 week "rental" of current gen versions, and NFL Sunday ticket.

Just took a look at the games on the list.  So basically Amazon thinks AC4 will still be worth  ~$50 on December 31st.  LOL.

Yeah, I was being generous in case someone lives next door to the receiving center and pipes in with "one week."    :)

That's actually worth noting. Chances are, and they're pretty decent chances. ACIV will be on sale for current gen consoles on Black Friday. Potential ACIV for Xbox One for $40 or less? I think so.

Same thing with deals on Slickdeals. When Best Buy puts a sale, people give a meh response. But when Amazon PMs it, it's FP deal. Never understand this logic. :lol:

Well it wouldn't apply to this deal, but when games are on sale and Amazon PMs it, then it's a better deal to some, including myself for various reasons. No tax, Amazon credit to blow, Prime shipping, etc.

Amazon sells new games as new and GameSlop sells used games as new. You could power through Watchdogs, upgrade it, then sell it as new on eBay. At GameSlop your new game would be used on eBay.

All i've seen in this thread is discussion. The only one who reacted positively is huntt26. Most posters here called it a match more than anything else.

I think it's a better deal than GameStop because the GameStop deal has fine print of 'you must buy the current-gen game within 30 days of buying the next-gen game'.

 

So, at Gamestop, I can't buy Madden 360 on launch and trade it in for this deal. At Amazon, I can (apparently)

The only 'flaw' here is that you should mail your item 7-10 days within the release date of the Xbox One version. To allow time to process the trade-in and them credit you the balance + bonus

I think you misinterpreted.  The GS one says you need to buy the current gen version within 30 days of its release.  You can trade up to the next gen version anytime before Dec 31st.

 

Relevant parts quoted:

"To qualify for this offer, a customer must be a PowerUp Rewards member at the time they purchase a new eligible Xbox 360 title(s) within 30 days of its initial release ...

 

Redemption of the coupon must occur by December 31, 2013. "

 

(The coupon is what gets you the guaranteed $50 when you trade up.)
