10% again didn't add on today. No worries, I would have only gotten like $2 so it wasn't that big of a deal to me today. NHL 11 and NBA 2k11 is also listed at $4 and $3 base in store and not the $6 each base from the online page.

Should i trade in all 3 of my uncharted games before the 100% end and then pray hard that an uncharted collection comes out soon? Would rather have them all in 1 disc...or 2.

The website shows the $4/$3 prices, so must have updated today or very recently. I traded in a ps3 copy of 2k11 for $12($12.60 with gcu) 2 weeks or so ago since I had free money from Sears and found it on clearance. Seemed kinda high for such an old game since I saw 2k12 was trading in for less.

As for the 10% you just have to make sure they apply it, I've noticed that now they have to scroll down to the reward zone part of the screen and that's where you put in the RZ phone # so that's probably where most employees are forgetting to apply it. I just make sure they add it and tell me the total before they print anything out, and once they print it out it's clear as day if they added the 10% or not. If they didn't, just don't sign it.

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.

If the uncharted collection will be anything like the other collections youll probably end up getting two games on disc on the other on a download voucher

I traded in my copies of Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3 today for $7 and $4 base each. I ended up with $23.10 after 100% bonus and 10% GCU, meaning they paid me $2 to play the two games. Albeit with ME3 I had only opened it and hadn't even installed it on my PS3 or played it.:cry:

Oh well. With that ME Collection coming out I'll just wait and get all three for one price later on.

100% bonus ends Saturday. 50% bonus starts Sunday.

As far as the 10% bonus goes, I've always asked the employee to tell me the TIV as he/she scans them. Then I ask about the extra 10% since I'm a GCU member. It has never failed me yet.

iatcg, save your money/ credit, if you didn't enjoy darksiders 2, mass effect series is definately not your type of game.

Not sure where to post this, but does anyone know if you can use the $5 reward zone certificate to buy PlayStation Network or Kindle Card.

Actually I made about $4 by buying ME3 and then trading it in today. So in the end it worked out for me.

Yes. A RZ certificate is the same as cash to them.

Still live, last day tomorrow. I am sure it will be back. I think it has been successful for them in getting games now if they are making any money remains to be seen.

It better be live tomorrow cause I got one more game to get rid off. Picked up 2 black ops cheaps and they trade in for $24, so took the, both and the guy said I could only trade in one for protection. He said a guy tried to trade in 7 madden 13 and they had to call the cops.

Do you get gas for free? Do you not have a job? I see you talking about making a buck or two on tons of trade ins. You can't honestly believe you're profiting...right?


Couldn't be that he had other errands to run or purchases to make in the area, or god forbid lives within walking distance of the store. :roll:

They had that coupon in their Gamer mag for $30.00 off the PS3 version of BF3. That dropped the TIV of that version a lot.

Do you guys think the TIV's will increase tomorrow since it'll be only 50%? Because I could get $60 for Sleeping Dogs and Sniper Elite V2 with the 100% but I don't think I'll be able to get to a BB today.

"Your world can end in the blink of an eye. One event, one unexpected twist of fate... and suddenly the world as you knew... is gone. Forever. All that you held dear, all that you held close... is washed away in a sea of distant memory. Life... is cruel. Of this I have no doubt. But life continues on... with, or without you. One can only hope that one leaves behind a lasting legacy. But so often, the legacies we leave behind... are not the ones we intended." -Queen Myrrah

Most likely it will take until mid/next week to see most values go up.
