Via RFD and GAF Canadian Gaming Deals thread..

Trade 1 game and receive a $40 gift card. This had been trade two for $60. So depending on the list, which will be updated on Friday, it could be the best we've seen.

Also of note:
3DS XL $159.99
PlayStation 3 160GB $179.99
And various game deals.

Is this Quebec only, or something happening next week? I just did 2 for 60 today and saw no mention of it.

This is the French version of this Friday's flyer. The text next to the Hitman HD Collection says that trading in one game will give you a $40 gift card.

It will be Canada wide, but this is a Quebec flyer as they get them a bit earlier sometimes. Trade 2 for $60 is still active until Friday, when this kicks in.

I hope Best Buy does it too, and I really hope they keep the same list

Why? What does Best Buy offer that Futureshop doesnt?

If it's the same list, I'll get rid of RE6 (which I didn't like) and use the credit to buy Madden '13 or (if they happen to have it) Tales Of Graces F.

I hope they don't realize people could technically buy Batman Arkham City GOTY for $30, remove the wrap, and trade it in for a $40 gift card.

They have a way better trade list at Best Buy right now.

If it's the same list, I'll get rid of RE6 (which I didn't like) and use the credit to buy Madden '13 or (if they happen to have it) Tales Of Graces F.


If you go for Tales of Graces F make sure you PM EB Games.

That trade list is currently for the T2 for $60 deal.

The list will MOST LIKELY be update when the $40 deal goes live tomorrow.

Gameplays, reviews, and just havin' fun...

Hmm, I hope that list stays legit actually, I just picked up a copy of Tiger Woods '13 from a clearout bin at Shopper's for $9.99 yesterday. Would be pretty nice to flip that for $40.

Reward points. I already have enough for a $5 gift card, plus if I use that and this $40 towards a preorder I get another $10 card

Be aware that people have noticed fine print in the flyer stating "Valid on PlayStation 3, Wii, XBOX 360, PS Vita and 3DS games. See futureshop.ca/usedgames for full details and list of eligible trade titles. Games must include boxes. No duplicate titles accepted, regardless of console. Some titles may be excluded. No dealers please. See in-store for details. Credit from trade-ins is applied to free game."

This could mean you have to apply the credit to something and you're not receiving an actual gift card? Not sure. Let us know if anyone does tradeins today, what the outcome is!

Sounds like the fine print that would be on that page if it was saying that it's a trade 1 specifically for Hitman. Could just be the wrong text in one spot.

I noticed that if you head to that link, there's nothing about trade 1 get 40, and they still only have the lists for the trade 2 get 60 deal.

Someone on RFD is reporting it is for Hitman only.

Someone on GAF this morning had a Futureshop give them the trade 2 for $60 promo from last week (even did it twice for them).

Looks like this is Hitman only, but YMMV, I guess.

I have hit refresh 10 times in 3 different browsers and I still see the $60 for 2 games. Can anyone confirm to me if RE6 for 360 and NSMB2 for 3DS are on the new list?

EDIT: Never mind, after wiping my cookies and then refreshing the page I see the new list.

I thought it was the best game of 2012 but I digress.

Ontopic: Just traded NFS Most Wanted for a gift card. Not too shabby considering I paid $30+tax for it.

Turned out no Future Shop near me had Madden and none had ToGF. I heard Madden will drop to $20 by March so I decided to hold off. Instead, I sold RE6 on Kijiji for $20 and used the money to pay for ToGF at EB.

This deal is the talk of the "other site".

I really wanted too like it .. really i did. but i'm like over half done the game and i'm thinking it's mediocre cause i don't don't like it and or like it at all. so i think it would be best to trade it in .. this is the first game ever i'm trading in.

Was planning on trading 2 but only got one trade out of this. The guy said they had to restrict it because of issues.

Anyway, I wasn't expecting this deal, so i'm happy with my trade!

You could try a different Futureshop or going back on a different day. I just traded in Tekken Tag 2 today with the exact same CSR as yesterday. Funnily enough he didn't ask me for any of my personal info and just handed me a gift card both times, unlike the other employees who want personal info everytime I do a trade.

I had same experience last week with the trade 2 deal, they didn't ask me ANYTHING. I was certain the last few times I had to at least give a phone number or something...

In the list there is Streeet Fighter X Tekken SE. Do they want the whole set with arcade toy and codes?

Usually they ask for a phone number at my two local Futureshops, but never ID.

I'm glad to hear most people are having success with this.

Tanks I traded in COD MW3 yesterday. No problem but it was fun listening to the 2nd CSR criticize through out the transaction how ridicules this deal was ;) In the end she said "At least the customer is happy"
