Does anybody know if GStop takes in Xbox live Arcade Unplugged Vol 1?? I tried to sell it yesterday but the Gothic (luv those people) employee told me we dont buy demo games. I tried to reason with him but he was not budging.


Did you tell him they aren't demos?

Is this promo continuation YMMV? I called up my local GS and they have no idea if the promo is still going on. I'm thinking it was that specific employee that didn't know though. I'll try calling again in the morning since the manager who knows this stuff usually works at that time.

Well, I can confirm that two GS employees says that its still going on, but no employee has a clue when it ends. Hopefully it is 7/20, need to build up my credit a bit more

It's not YMMV. The promo HAS BEEN extended until 07/20. Have your local Gamestop check their daily informer from late last week.

I traded in another 40+ titles today that I picked up from 2 different TRU stores which were $9.98-20% off clearance games AND in true CAG fashion, I stacked a bundle of 7 games with a $10 off $50 purchase coupon (which I printed multiples of and reused over and over despite the print that says limit one per customer) running until 7/1 making each game $6.25-$6.50 after tax. I then proceeded to flip them to my local Gamestops for $10.40 after EDGE. Sure $4.00 a game profit isn't much, but I made $5, $6 or more on some titles which pretty much doubled my money ! :D I got the $10 bonus on all of them with no cashier effort required, the computer did it automatically like it is supposed to.

Bummer was, I actually had to buy something today (of course using the 10% off new games coupon that is YMMV in my area (Northern California) but I still got it handled) to keep my EDGE card credit from hitting the maxed out ceiling of $1000 today.8-)

Looks like I will be set on my game purchases the rest of the year and then some ! :lol:

Thanks Uncle Target, Kmart, TRU, and of course to the CAG community and forums (Cheapy D and mods) !!

Happy hunting...or shall I say flipping...

Xfactor

P.S. Some of the titles were F4RSS, VT3, CHICKEN LITTLE, RATATOUILLE, ROBINSONS,FAR CRY INSTINCT, HARRY POTTER, GOLDEN COMPASS, BRATZ the MOVIE, and a couple more...

As far as I know, none of my Blockbusters have a Gamerush section :roll:

Xfactor

P.S. I only had one copy of it but Looks like I lost $20 from not going to Blockbuster ! :wall:

EDIT: Actually I just looked it up and since I am in Northern California, Sacramento Area there are NO Gamerush stores ANYWHERE CLOSE ! Looks like the closest ones to me are in Southern California Hours and Hours away ! :-| That is also why I never knew Blockbuster took in Trades ! Will Blockbuster without a Gamerush still take my trades for the same value as Gamerush and do all regular Blockbusters take trades ?

Yes to all of that. As long as its a corporate store and not a franchise.

Wait, you are in Sacramento? Last I heard there are GR stores there. When my one and only GR store here in the Pacific NW shut down they said they were sending all their stuff to stores in Sacramento and Fresno. I know there are none in the Bay Area though. Not that it matters - as others have said, you can go to any corporate store (as opposed to franchise locations). You can also try having Gamecrazy price match the Blockbuster trade-in value. I did that tonight ;).

OK, so I had a weird trade-in at Gamestop today. I took SMB and Far Cry (from TRU) and World Series of Poker and NHL 07 ($1.58 new at Fred Meyer) in for trade. I handed them a copy of the $15 bonus coupon which he had no problem accepting. But then when he did the trades he said the coupon didn't take so he had to override. But then for some reason I didn't get the Edge boost on the $15 trade ones, but I did on the other ones.

My receipt is wacky as hell (leaving off the part numbers and such for simplicity):

Super Money Ball -13.50
-1 @ -6.00
Bonus: -$7.50 Price Overide
Far Cry: Instinct -12.50
-1 @ -5.00
Bonus: - $7.50 Price Overide
World Series of P -9.13
-1 @ 3.00
Bonus -5.30 Price Overide
Disc: 0.83 Edge Card 10%
NHL 2007 -8.53
-1 @ 2.50
Bonus -5.25 Price Overide
Disc: 0.78 Edge Card 10%

Total was $43.66

What I should have gotten was $11 + $1.10 Edge + $15 bonus for SMB and Far Cry and $5.50 + $0.55 + $10 bonus for the other two for a total of $43.15, so I guess I came out slightly ahead just by chance. For whatever reason the system did not apply the Edge card bonus to the first two games at all but on the other 2 applied it to the total INCLUDING bonus. Too bad it didn't apply to the first ones - this is how I used to get tons of bonus credit back in the days when all these promos would require manual override - they never used to take that into account :lol:.

Afterwards as I looked around, I noticed he was talking to the other clerk about how he had to overide and they were then comparing my printed coupon to one of the real ones :oops:. I don't think they cared about the copy - maybe they were just making sure the promo code was the same so they'd know for sure they would have to do overrides next time.

But the point of all this is that apparently it hoses up the system if you try to get both promos at the same time (even on different pairs). He said it simply didn't apply at all when he entered the code so that's why he did the override. I guess I should separate the transactions from now on. Forgive me if this has been covered already - I had tons of stuff to get through in the Blockbuster thread when I came home...

Traded X360-CoD4 ($25) and X360-World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions ($3) in today. ToC was a freebie my buddy gave me, when he got WSOP 2008. I figured $38 was about as good as I could get for Call of Duty 4 before it would start slumping down later this summer. Oh, and I'm knee deep in Battlefield Bad Company anyway, so it wasn't getting played.

Yep I am in Sactown area but there are no stores anywhere close to here EXCEPT Fresno which with the price of gas these days IS WAY TOO FAR AWAY to drive for me, especially since I am 30-45 minutes north of Sac ! :hot:

Yeah, I covered this earlier a few posts up. The scan/coupon promo for the bonus $15 ONLY works when you trade in ONLY 2 games on 1 transaction and each game must have a base TIV =>$4.00 each. FYI.

They had to manually override your transaction becuz you traded in 4 games at once which caused the TRADE 2 GAMES ONLY GET $!5 PROMO to malfunction, hence their manual adjustment. Also, nice that you got the 10% edge bonus on the whole thing and not just the base TIV. As you mentioned, another one of those benefits of when they manually have to override a trade value.

Good job using the YMMV SCAN of the NCAA preorder bonus coupon though. I think they were chatting about how the coupon was a SCAN or COPY though ! ;)

It is posted on the gamestop website now, so it is not YMMV.

It does, you just have to remove all the junk that the CAG referral system adds. It only seems to do it with Gamestop links.
