Has the Trade 2 next gen games promo been extended before? Hopefully it gets extended since it expires today

It's still on their Twitter. I'm hoping to see it posted soon....would suck if it's not the case.

 

BTW, I see they updated their extra 30% TIV towards select games:

 

 

  • Mario Kart 8
  • Watch_Dogs
  • Destiny
  • MLB 14 The Show
  • Kirby Triple Deluxe
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order
  • Murdered Soul Suspect

Valid 4/28/14 - 5/18/14

If I preordered Kirby already and paid in full, anyone know if I can trade in games and still get the promotional value?

In my experience you will only get a B2G1 preowned coupon.

The more I think about this deal, the less I like it. Trade in my used games so I can have more money to buy other people's used games? Instant money in the bank for Gamestop, but I'd rather put it toward a new pre-order or system.

Dude, just pick up a $0.99 sports game or Link's Crossbow Training, it's not that hard.

has anyone gotten the, "you have to spend more money than that to get the promo" speech?

 

i have told them, it will go through just scan everything, and i still have gotten refused. didnt really mind, this was during the 40% bonus for "anything in the ad" promo. i tried to trade in a 360 and was given that speech when i tried to put it towards a disney infinity figure. didnt mind afterall since i got something else and asked for a gift receipt.

I've never been refused doing that, and I've even been told by an employee or two that it's a really smart tactic.

Just tell them another manager teach you to do that. That is why you love trading games into gamestop. They try to get you the best value possible.

It probably is real and just hasn't been updated into their systems yet. 
 
In the real corporate world, promotions require the coordination of multiple departments beyond just the marketing folks.  Not every department is in sync with each other all the time.  Although you'd think it wouldn't happen, they are still run by humans.  Mistakes happens.  Emails get delayed.  Confusion happens.  I can recall several instances in the past when Best Buy's trade promos were delayed for 24 hours.  The fact that the Gamestop social media team posted up the promotion is a big indicator that somebody up in corporate thought the timing was right to promote used game trades/sales.  Gamestop has also come through on other promotions that were advertised on their Twitter page in the past.
 
You can also use the Twitter app on your phone by the way. It lends itself better on mobile than desktop.

Thanks for the insight. I have a bunch of games to trade in but it sounds like I should wait a day or two and see if this goes into effect. (I'll try calling my local stores, though, and see if they are aware of it.)

Hey guys, I just read the morning emails. One mentioned the 50% promo from GS' Twitter. It doesn't officially start until next Monday, 5/5. However, if a customer mentions the tweet, the employee is allowed to manually adjust the trade-in to give the 50% promo to take care of them.

Does it apply to consoles?

I have a gamestop that I primarily use and even struck up a sort of "broship" with the manager. Certainly, I haven't pulled a lot of outlandish stuff, like trading 4 slim adapters, but he has let me trade a game and get it back with the B2G1, cancel preorders and get back full credit after promos, so on, so forth. 

 

I believe that some employees are anal about people doing that stuff, thinking it's cutting into their performance, not as much that GS is being robbed blind, etc.

Seconded. Deleting the tweet also killed the embedded tweets here :-(

Also still wondering if the GameInformer 10% coupon stacks with promos. Assuming no, but it would be nice. I have a fat stack of NASCAR 14 to get rid of.
