Cue Gamestop dropping their trade prices by $5 on everything to offset the coupon...now.

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.

for those that are flipping - are you going to turn it in new, or remove the shrink wrap and security covers?

Considering the fact that my local GS thinks I would steal a game to sell to them for $4 in credit, I'll open all of my trade ins.

As others have said, GS/EB usually include fine print about certain titles be excluding. For the most part, the exclusions generally apply to older sports titles.

Always open things you are trading in. They are not suppose to accept trade-ins of sealed games.

If they don't change the trade value for CoD4, maybe it is a good time to get rid of it. Also I have APF2008, CoD3, Fuzion Frenzy 2 and Forza 2 to get rid of..I need a PS3 game to play along with my new PS3.

They do, but they don't include any trade bonuses towards cash. Also, they take an additional 20% off of your trade total if you choose cash, instead of store credit.

Wanted to ask what would be better this deal or 50% trade in coupon plus the edge? My two games would be Rainbow 6 Vegas and Fifa 08. (Maybe)

Well Fifa 08 trades for $16.00 so the 50% bonus trade special + edge would be a better deal.

If you are talking Rainbow Six Vegas #1, then it trades for $8.00 so the $10.00 bonus would be the better deal.

The $10.00 bonus (plus you still get edge of course on top) is better than the 50% coupon when the game you are trading in has a value of $10.00 or under.

If the base trade value is under $10.00, go with the $10.00 bonus credit trade special.

If the base trade value is over $10.00, use the 50% bonus trade credit coupon.

Either way, you still get your 10% edge bonus on top of either deal you choose.

Good luck and happy trading ! :D

Just because it says that does not mean you cannot trade it in. It does mean that you cannot try and commit return fraud and try and return it to a store by itself though because it was "not for individual resale".

I am quite positive you can still trade it in if it has the 100% official game with manual and game case with cover art.

NFR or "Not for Resale" is like a new "wrapped" product to gamestop, most will not take them. HOWEVER you may:
1) unwrap your game before you enter the store
2) remove/destroy the paper insert from the case, thus removing the NFR tag
3) Cut the NFR tag out of the insert (this ALWAYS works for me)

Remember they take games without the cases, so just eliminate anything that says NFR and they have no choice but to take it.

I plan to go sell some Target crap on Monday including FF2 assuming it's NOT on the no-buy list...

Hope I can find some garbage at Sears (though I hear they are pulling a lot of clearance stuff off the sales floor) to flip.

Remember guys... the minimum trade value has to be above $1 originally. So that means that those 06 sport games are not eligible!

As others have said, games with a trade-in value of less than a $1 are excluded, so that's basically 360 '06 sports titles. I don't think much else would even come close to that price point. Even games that they sell for $10 would still net you like $2 of trade-in value.
