Not really - except for some wacky pricing in one market (Kansas City/OKC area I think) everything has been uniform nationwide.

I updated the OP with the Spiderman FoF price and the new text from the web site finally reflecting the extension of the promo.

Gotcha...

Today (um yesterday?) I received my $2 edge card, which was mailed within a month of today. Went to flip, but due to one game being $4 I couldn't get the $15 promo to work at all. Didn't really care because I still got $40+ with he edge!

Does anyone know if you can trade in the marvel/forza two-pack, and if it qualifies for the bonus?

I picked a 2 copies of NHL 2007 Xbox 360 for $1.58 each at Fred Meyer. If I flip them both at the same time, will it raise any eyebrow seeing 2 copies of the same game? I just don't wanna get banned yet.

It really entirely depends on the employee you encounter, how seriously they take their job and how junior detective they are. BBVs can only see their own trade in records. Unless you have an agreement with someone who works in the store or you can kinda tell that they won't care, I'd only trade in one copy at a time (or better, one copy to two different BBVs).

It does seem like they've been cracking down on people lately.

EDIT: I'm retarded and posted about BBV in the GS thread. The answer is almost the same, except that I think all GS can see your entire trade record. They might also say that it's "illegal." Unless you have a huge stack of games or you know the guy, I'd say it won't work.

What do you mean they've been cracking down lately? I'm not sure why it makes a difference to them if you're flipping games because they obviously still see it as profitable. Or are they concerned that they're buying stolen merchandise? If that's the case would they be better about it if you just brought in your receipt?

That was about BBVs because in the BBV thread people were mentioning how they were getting banned. I don't think there's such a concern with GS, but they still won't let you do it in all likelihood. I haven't had much luck with it.

It has everything to do with the merchandise looking as if it's stolen. That will be the excuse anyway. They'll either fear it's stolen or think you're up to something shady. In any case, they reserve the right to deny your trades even upon producing a receipt. Most cashiers will chalk it up to "policy" and there's nothing they can do.

Well I had two copies of Forza 2 and Fuzion Frenzy 2. The guy ringing me up said you can't trade in multiples of the same game, but another guy quickly stepped in and told him that I could as long as it isn't a crazy amount.

If you mix it in with a bunch of other games they probably won't even notice. If you are just doing those two then it is definitely YMMV. You won't get banned from GS (like you might at BBV), but they just might not let you do it. It would be best to pair them up with 2 other games and trade them separately. If that is too much trouble, just give it a shot. Just tell them the truth - you got them on clearance (for you and a buddy or something) and decided you didn't want them any more (don't have to tell them how much they cost!).

I've actually traded multiples a few times during this promo, but each time it was in a stack of 6-8 games total. I reeally don't even think they noticed as they usually process the trades pretty fast. Plus, unlike BBV, they get brownie points for how many game trades they get, so it isn't in their best interest to reject trades unless it seems really off (horrible condition or obviously stolen).

Edit - trade-in values updated with some drops reported in the BBV thread.
irishsoccermbw - Well, yeah... I was at a store about a year ago and a guy brought in a stack of Wii remotes and traded them for cash. They told him "this is the last time, OK - we don't need any more". So clearly the guy had done it before. I guess after being his pawn shop a few times they decided maybe it wasn't the best idea...

I dunno about that "obviously stolen" part. I went to GS today to get my last 5 gamecube games (my credit was raped by that coupon) and while I was waiting in line a guy infront of me asked for a used DSlite.

The GS people looked at each other and laughed, then one said "well we got a brand new one in a few mins ago, its obviously stolen from Walmart, it still has the stickers on it"

The guy asked if he would get the used price, they said yes and he was on his way. GS is most def. a pawn shop and don't give a flying Fuck about anything other then profits.

Still had the stickers from walmart on the unopened DSlite...

YMMV. Not all GS operate the same way and you may or may not come across an employee who cares. In my experience, it's less about the fact that they're stolen and more about the fact that it looks off that you have multiple copies of the same game and the cashier doesn't want to go aganist policy (as I believe it's an actual GS policy to not accept multiple copies in one trade in)

Actually, I did this multiple times without any problem. Only trade 2 of the same copies at a time though, not more than that. So it depends on the location I guess. Just try it.

Two is fine. Anything more and it raises eyebrows. Make sure they're both opened.

The duplicates issue is and always will be YMMV. It's always worth a shot if you want to get rid of some flipped copies, but I wouldn't bring in more than one duplicate game.

I agree. It is an issue of convenience/gas prices/etc though, and not of "getting in trouble" with GS. For as little as eau will get for those (even with the promo) it is probably worth a shot to trade them at once if he can't pair them off with other games. That's essentially why I ended up trading some duplicates last week. I could have split my stack and taken the 2 dups (I had 2 Spiderman FoF AND 2 Spiderman 3 - so 4 Spiderman games total in an 8-game stack!) to different stores. But that meant wasted time and gas (not much, but it adds up). I decided to go for it - worst that could happen is they tell me they can only take 1 of each and I go to the other store anyway. As it was, they took 'em and it saved me some hassle.

Point is, eau, this isn't Blockbuster. GS will not ban you or throw you out for trading 2 copies of something (which Blockbuster has been known to do even though it says you can trade 2 copies per day of any game right in the trade agreement!). Worst they will do is reject the trade and you will have wasted a bit of time going there.

I'm trading in games for a PS3 and I was wondering if someone could help me out with this whole $10 extra thing so that I'm crystal clear on what I need to go in with.

I'm trading in the following:
Harvey Birdman - Wii
Marvel Ultimate Alliance - Wii
Karaoke Revolution: American Idol Encore - Wii
Viva Pinata - Xbox 360

Do I have to trad them in two at a time?

I have an Edge Membership too. Will I be able to get an extra 10% on top of that?
