GS/EB Coupon/Used Deal of the Week FAQs - thanks oscargrouch
  • Coupon is valid in store (B&M Locations) only, it does not work online.
  • Just print the coupon, not the whole ad.
  • Coupon can be printed from this thread by right clicking on the image, selecting view image, then pressing print.
  • Coupon DOES NOT stack with any other offer, except EDGE cards.
  • Coupon will be valid on the start date of the weekly ad, not earlier. (YMMV on if the employees will do manual override, not recommended.)
  • The EDGE card takes 10% from the original price of the Used Deal of the Week, not the promotional price.
  • Used Deal of the Week is considered a promotion so it will ONLY stack with the EDGE Card, nothing else.

Good deal, but I'm still sticking with the $20 Amazon credit.

BTW, Scarface for PS2 is a great game. I definitely suggest picking that up this week for anyone who's thinking about it.

This will work well with the $10 Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll at Best Buy.

Base TIV $14.00 + $7.00 (w/ 50% coupon) + $1.40 (Edge card) = $22.40 towards SMG2

hm..as with most preorder trade in promos, there's nothing stopping me from canceling the preorder from gamestop later right? so an extra 20% for games i would have trade in with the 30% promo going on..

i should have read the fine print. but still if you trade in towards SMG2, then return the game later, you would end up with the 50% bonus right?

Basically yes, you'd get the full cost of the game returned in credit.

Agree 100%. I'm still crushed they cancelled the 360 version.

Eh, I found it hard to play Scarface after experiencing the next-gen sandbox games (like Saints Row 2).

Well I wasn't a big fan of Mass Effect 2, and I have an extra Mass Effect 1. Think I am going to go for the Red Dead 2 game trade in for the $40 off. Thanks for putting up the list.

I really hope my Gamestops are still participating in the "super ridiculous TIVs with promotions already applied" thing when I get my NSMBs in. If they are, I'm looking at ~$54 in credit apiece with this baby. :3

A $20 price drop and is still $35 overpriced IMO. Thanks for the ad, jp.

what happens if you trade in 3 games toward SMG2, and the value goes over the price tag of 49.99 for SMG2, do you get the rest in credit?

Thanks for the tip good thing I traded in 3 copies of super monkey ball today (which I of course got at best buy for $9.99 each). I figured today would be a good day to see if I wanted anything during the B2G1 sale online

Yep, if you look really closely it is right there above Mass Effect 2 (2 disks)
Anyone know if they will take games off this list without the instruction booklets? I can't for the life of me find my friggen manuals for these games. I NEVER lose them and always have them in their cases, but these are missing some how.....

Yes, though slightly YMMV if they will try to hit you with a refurb fee. If they do, you can just try another GS if it's convenient.

Well, I know what I am doing tomorrow, hello Red Dead Redemption. I will try to pick up Mass Effect 2 when the price goes down below 14. (maybe)

Wouldn't it be easier to just get 20 GC from amazon (which is like cash) and effectively get 40% off without trading anything in?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Not really, this way I have it in hand and the games are traded in on the spot, no waiting period. Also have $30.20 on my edge card to cash in to fill out the remaining 20 dollars for Red Dead Redemption. I got a sweet deal trading in my battlefield bad company 2 copy in, have another one on the way as a part of the buy one get one glitch from there, so effectively I got Fallout 3 Game of the Year edition for 48 dollars shipped with 30 dollars in credit avail. Kind of a long way to get there but feels good getting a deal on that. I might even trade that copy in if my friends no longer want to play Bad company.
