Anyone know if after 4/28, they will add Pikmin 3 back to the 30% bonus trade in?

Want Amazon Prime for cheap? Send me a message for info.

I am still shitting in my pants at this


They sell the game for $45 used and it's one of the most popular games on the system. Almost all CAG's have been there and done that with the Wii if they even had it at all, but the common GS customer eats up any Nintendo game w/Mario on it.

Nintendo never made it a Player's Choice title b/c they didn't have to, it's an evergreen title that still sells new at places like BB, Target, WM, and TRU.

Don't know for sure but I doubt it since there's bigger releases still coming and Wii U games likely won't be a trade bonus title until maybe the Wind Waker HD remake.

couldn't you just preorder any game right now for the 30% bonus, then move it over to pikmin 3. I assume you just want the 30 % preorder bonus

For anyone that has tons of gamestop reward points from trade ins you might want to pick up a "poster grab bag". Not sure how many they mail out to you but for 10k points, why not. Just ordered mine. Heres hoping they give out god of war and metal gear. Hehe

Random game posters! Just like their mystery grab bags which usually includes basic memorabilias from games like key chains, pins, bottle openers. Hehe.

Even easier just pick up a copy of Link's xbow for $.25 or Kinect adventures for $.49 and then apply the rest of the credit onto a Pikmin 3 pre-order. Then return the game later if you want.

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.

I picked up Link's Crossbow Training and I got the original little sleeve case, but it's worth getting Link's Crossbow adventure anyway even if you don't get a plastic case.

The 40% is them adding the 30%+10%?


Yeah, the values were marked as "Up to" amounts factoring in 30 percent towards pre-owned and PUR Pro.

Anyone have any experience with these? What kind of condition they come in? I have been looking to get a 3DS lately. I could definitely get any 3DS cheaper but this one is pretty sweet.

PUR steal of the week coupons stack with reg. store promos but does anyone know if the current one 50% bonus credit for handhelds will stack with the current system promos?

Got $264 for my wife's iPhone 4 after upgraded her to an iPhone 5 for $165 (after $35 RZ certs) at Best Buy. So that was worth it, even though it is effectively a transfer of cash to GS credit (at a somewhat decent profit). Unlike last time I was able to convice the clerk (the same one I think) to give me the "Like New" price. Thanks to my blanketing it with screen protectors it was immaculate as was the last one I traded in. Even though he said his manager said never to take them as "Like New," since it was in such good shape he agreed to take it for that value. Then when he mentioned my PUR was expiring soon (though it is good till June I think) I has no problem saying "go for it". The extra for Like New was $20 - so it more than paid for my renewal and I was happy to give him the "bonus" of a PUR renewal.

AKA the posters my gamestop throws away in a dumpster neatly in a box at that.

got an email a little bit ago with quoted values of $20 each for RDR GOTY 360 and GTAIV complete ps3 along with $12.50 for Rayman Origins Wii. Said the values were good 4/26-28 and PUR Pro members get 10% more.

I'm not sure how the values were calculated but it seems to maybe be a limited time PUR exclusive trade value thing like they had last winter maybe.

I may get rid of RDR GOTY sine I only paid about $19-20 pretax after coupons for it and I didn't like it very much.

I think this email must be tailored to items that you have in your collection on the PUR site from purchases made at GS but not traded back in.

I got a similar email with the following values:
Wii - Metroid Prime Trilogy $45
Wii - Xenoblade Chronicles $45
Wii - Super Mario All-Stars $35
PS3 - COD: Black Ops 2 $30

Not sure if these are base values (that could stack with other promos) or not since it does say next to each value in the email "Pros Get 10% More"

Also not sure if these values apply to everyone or if they are tied to your account. Can't wait to hear from others on the developing story.

Got this email too. Here are the ones listed in mine:

Super Mario Bros - Wii U - $35
Fire Emblem - 3DS - $27.50
Persona 4 Golden - Vita - $27.50
Tales of Graces F - PS3 - $27.50

Had the "Pros get 10% more" tag on each of those as well.

:shock: Wow, if those are base values, I might trade in the copy of NSMB U I bought from AWD and my copy of BO2 which I haven't touched for months.

4/26 (phone quotes):

:360:
Kinect Sports - $6
Kinect Sports: Season 2 - $12
Kinect Sports Ultimate Collection - $15

:ps3: Just Dance 4 - $10

Anyone got an email saying what Halo 4 is worth? I'm looking to sell it but the value has tanked. Hoping for one more increase before it completely drops.

So is that just straight value or adding in the 30%?
