i know a few people missed this last time (me included).

Great time to take advantage of this right now. If you can find any uncharted bundles left, with the current 50$ off plus a free mk komplete/ b:ac deal going on, plus 30% bonus on ps3/360 trades this week (which im told will stack). Should be able to get a system with a few free games for almost nothing after trading.

Thanks for those, it will help some.

Bear in mind they may not be completely accurate, for example:

I have a 60 gig bc ps3. Before i left work tonight (im a gs employee) i checked the value, system said 85$.

So factor in 30% on top plus the fifty and i should clear about 160$.

Uncharted bundle on sale for 250$. I have uncharted and batman, so trading those back at around 20 a piece means i could trade up to a 320 gig ps3 for around 50$


Fyi, a 360 elite wireless came out at around 130$ trade.

No harm in trying, but they usually check.

I don't see anywhere on the site about an additional 50 bucks for a hardware trade in. I have a Xbox core with wireless controller which should net me 95 after the $50 bucks. Is that right?

It's not on the gamestop website. You need to be a Power Up Rewards member to claim the coupon for 3800 points.

Ugg... I really have to decide if I'm just going to get rid of my PS3. I don't use it at all. I just got U3 from Target, but I haven't even talked myself into playing through U1 and 2 (which are the only games I've even bothered to keep for my PS3)... Then again, if I trade it in, what good does $200 of credit at GS do for me, since I buy like 2 games a year? Decisions, decisions...

May trade in my fat PS3 for a new slim with a bigger hd. Can I redownload games bought on the PSN? What about the gift games from the network outage last year?

I'm trying to decide if it's worth trading my 60GB BC Phat system for an Uncharted Bundle. I called GS and they confirmed the trade-in value is $85. With 30% and $50 PUR it would be $160 so my net upgrade cost would be about $102 with tax. I've had the Phat for 4.5 years with no problems at all. I don't use the BC or SACD capabilities either so it may be worth it. The 30% and $50 PUR will stack for sure? They couldn't confirm it for me.

Can anyone confirm that the 30% stacks? I need to be sure if I do this, my brother needs a new 360.

I'm wondering the same thing before I truly consider this deal. I have both PS3 and 360 and I'm considering dumping my XBOX since I rarely play it.

Didnt gamestop had the $50 extra credit active last week too? And now they took it off and expect people to use their reward points to get it back? Way to go GS! No deal here!

This is what I'm afraid of, I desperately want to trade my 4gb Slim towards a Star Wars 360 but if the 30% doesn't stack it's not really worth it.

Pretty much, GS steal of the week has been a joke these past few weeks.
"Buy pre-owned Medal of Honor for 7.99!" You just have to spent 3,xxx points!
Pft, rather just spend 4k points and get a blanket $5 off any pre-owned game.

Does anyone have the stock locator link for the uncharted ps3 bundle?

Also, how much should it cost in-store?

I'm going to be going during my lunch break to trade in a fat white 360 I bought on ebay for $65 a few months back. I have my coupon printed and ready to go so I'll let you guys know once I get back if it stacked or not.

The coupon is on the Power Up Rewards site. You get points for all your gamestop purchases.

And I already have Batman, MK complete, and Uncharted 3, so I was ready to trade in whichever of those I needed to also.

Just got back from Gamestop. Not sure exactly what happened but I got $75 as the base price for the original white 360 plus the $50 for the coupon for a total of $125. I think they might have raised their trade in values. Not bad especially when I got it for $65 a few months ago.
