This list of games are guaranteed by GameStop to receive at least $15 in trade-in credit (working condition, store credit) if traded in by 4/10.

There is also this, but I find these trade-in prices to be rather high, unless someone can confirm this:

Holy shit a phone call from a Nascar PRO??

Fuck better spend around $2,000(I have no idea how many points that is) so I can hear him say hello.

Seriously, for the amount of cash you'd spend the Nascar guy better give you phone sex.

If you guys are going to trade something in, please consult us first. Wouldn't you rather have someone in the community with your game instead of letting Gamestop take it and mark it up?

So this is going to be $15 base trade in and $7.5 more for the 50% extra that should be running starting this friday right? Or am I doing something wrong here.

^^ I can look later, but I just used a $10 off any game coupon on the Fallout New Vegas CE. That was 10,000 points. They also have $10 off any used game for a little less (8000 points I think). I still have 12,000 more points and I haven't been shopping there that much since I got switched to PowerUp Rewards. So, yeah, it is certainly better than nothing (which is what we got before).

As for the list of $15+ trade-ins: hmmm... I have a an extra Super Mario Galaxy that I got during the last BBV B1G1 sale that I don't know what to do with. $16.50 (after Power Up) is a good deal for it, actually, considering that it isn't in any condition to trade in or sell anywhere else but GS. It is moderately scratched, has no manual, and has "display only" cover art. Last time I checked GS was only giving $6 or $7 for it, so $15 (minimum, though I doubt this one is any higher) is awesome.

Wow - just looked at Amazon and I'm shocked they are giving $23 for it as it was much lower there before, too. Problem is, there's no way I can trade it there with no manual and the funky cover art whereas at GS I should have no problem. GS has its uses, guys...

If there is a 50% bonus on Friday then I am all over that - but somehow I doubt the two will coincide. I'd like to know for sure, though, as otherwise I'd trade it tomorrow (Weds) when I'm going to be by a GS store.

Can some one copy and paste the reward items in the catalogue for the power up rewards members. I'm thinking of joining so I can get an early b2g1 but id like to know what the catalogue offers.

That's sounds correct. There's nothing I can read that indicates this is a promotion.

The trade in values for "he hottest games" pic is kinda crazy when stacked with the 50% no?

Yes, but where are you guys seeing that the 50% promo will happen before the 10th? In the GameDays sale thread there is only a vague indication that it might start next week - which is probably too late depending on how you define "next week".

Yeah, I agree with what RollingSkull says (below). I hate the uncertainty, though. Like I said, I have this game I want to get rid of tomorrow but I'd be pissed if it got 50% more on Friday. I guess I'll wait till the weekend and then get rid of it by Saturday if there is no 50% bonus running - though I wasn't planning on going anywhere near a GS on Saturday.

More likely, the 50% will happen at the end of next week as a way to replenish their stock after this weekends B2G1 sale. That makes more sense (though it wouldn't kill them to run them at the same time to get more stock in during the sale - though that can be exploited so maybe they'd want to avoid that).

Unless I get proof, I'm not assuming we're getting 50% bonus Friday.

21$ trade in @ Amazon. But i guess if you get the bonus @GS its close to the same.

Best Buy has a current promotion beating the TiV of most of the games on that list.

Battlestations Pacific made me go "Huh?" Had no idea that game has held its value relatively well for a two-year-old game. Still about $30 new on Amazon.

those dbz games have gotten ridiculously hard to find anywhere around, and the one piece game is rarer than metroid prime trilogy...
but i wouldn't count on the guarantee, there's always the fine print...

I'm sure a lot of people would be willing to pay a little more than $15 for most of the games mentioned, especially the 3DS games right now.

Dang, that's a high trade in value for Fable 3. That seems high like it's a mistake lol

Guess I'll power through it today and trade that turd in :)

Amazon will give you $21 for either PS3 or 360 version...

Actually you would have to spend $4,000 on used products to earn 80,000.

$4,000 x 20 points per dollar = 80,000 points.

For that much money you should be able to meet with Joey in person at a track somewhere.

Edit: You can also earn 20 points per dollar on trade-in credit so it still will cost too much just for a call.

If only Gamestop gave you something else for your $4,000 than just a phone call. Oh wait.
