Hey, this is actually better than I expected. I might actually be able to use this.

Stacks with Edge, so it's actually better than the 10/20/30 deal running now, and you don't need to have x amount of games to do it.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Nice coupon. I'm gonna trade in Civilization Rev. for about $45.( Good game, just each match takes way too long, about 3-4 hours each.)

Not to shab, use the coupon for the extra trade-in on Madden, then come back the next day and cancel your preorder. Yay!

Cool. I have zero interest in Madden, but it can't be that hard to move the credit over to something else a few days later...right?

If you trade in more than what Madden is worth, will they just give the rest to you as store credit?

'Cause I got
Mario Kart DS - 18
Pokemon Diamond - 17
FFTA2 - 20
EBA -?
GH2 - 9
RBSV - 7

Figuring EBA is around 7 dollars, this comes out to around $109 with the extra 40% TIC.

i've always had a question about preorders. if we preorder something, we have to put 5 dollars down for it at gs. but if we cancel, do we get the 5 dollars back?

GameStop sent me "Trade Specials from GameStop" to my email, and I was wondering if it'll stacked up.

I'm planning to sell MGS4 with "Trade Specials fro GameStop" email that I got for $35+10% (EDGE)+ and coupon above.

$35*1.5= $52.5 in credit?

Wow, that means if you truly wanted to be greed you could just trade-in games towards several copies of Madden then just cancel them the next day and transfer the credit toward something you actually want which is funny because this coupon expires two days before Madden is suppose to come out.

So those with an Edge Card that is 50% extra on trade-ins.

You are correct, sir.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

Lol... Sell your game(s) using the coupon and Edge card and then ask them to put a $5 reservation and cancel it the next day? Will it really work?:bouncy:

There must be a catch... Somehow.

so whats the chances they lower all trade values for this coupon? havent they been known to do this before? (ex: SSBB worth 30 but knocked down to 20 + the 40% = regular trade in???)

I need to reserve my copy of Madden tomorrow. This coupon really does help out in that manner along with the current 3/4/5 trade-in bonus deal, if it stacks up that way.

I mean, I got some cannon fodder games and FIFA 08 to trade. So:

40% Madden Coupon
20% Four trade-in bonus
10% Edge Card

Again, that's only if that four trade-in bonus stacks with everything else. But that saves me a little dough, especially when things are going to be tight next month.

Yeah...50% trade-in boost - we're finally getting decent value here haha.
On the flip-side, I actually want Madden 09.

Er, if we don't want Madden, what do we do? Will that preorder cancelling really work or will they dock the bonus?

I suppose we could pick up Madden and then return it whenever it's convenient to get the credit back. There's no way to trace it then.

it won't stack with any other trade in deals its one or the other. The coupon is the better deal because it will stack with EDGE cards making it 50% more trade in credit.

I preordered Soul Calibur 4 to get a 20% trade boost once, and I came in a few days later, canceled the preorder, and they credited my edge card. No questions asked.

I think you are missing the point of this coupon (at least for most people). Do you really think people are getting excited to pre-order Madden, or do you think it's something else?
