no more trades at GS for me. One GS employee denied my trades because corporate flagged my account. I asked for a number so I can speak with someone about it.

While on the way home, decided to go cancel some pre orders at another GS. I only did it because the guy who rung me up seemed cool at first, but he might have had something to do with my account being flagged(possibly called someone higher up to track my account?).

While I was there, I met the guy I was told to call. He was part of loss prevention. He kindly told me they can no longer accept my trades because I've traded multiple copies over many stores in the area(only one store let me trade multiple copies during one transaction, which I did twice). He said I'm free to come in and purchase stuff, but no more trading. I was sorta ok with it, I didn't give him a problem, shook his hand, and looked around the store. As I left, a different employee kinda gave me a dirty look


I still have the guys number, maybe I'll call sometime about clarification on the ban length(I'm guessing its permanent), and if theres a way I can have it lifted(bring a receipt saying I bought them?)

I haven't been flipping that long, but I did know you can get banned at BB for trading multiple copies. I was pretty careful with that, but getting banned at GS took me by suprise. I read posts where people said GS doesn't really monitor trades, but I found out they do.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. :lol:




I had them say i couldn't trade OR purchase stuff from Gamestop anymore because corporate was looking into my trading history. The employee there also said something about loss prevention was wondering how i was getting all the stuff i trade in. This started apparantly because i had a bunch of headsets from the 3 month xbox live starter kits i had traded in. I do trade in alot of games to the Gamestops in my area when we find out about these clearances at other stores and have been for at least 4-5 years (no multiples)

I called them out on it and left the store pissed. I went to the next Gamestop and tried to trade in some games. Traded in 6 games, no problem. Bought some PS3 games with the coupon, no problem. Went to about 3 or 4 other gamestops just to see if they would give me the same grief as the first.

Seems like the only store who was being a bitch was the first one so i just won't be buying anything from that store anymore.

I'm almost tempted to contact Gamestop corporate about this cause it just seems like the one store is blowing smoke up my ass.

Does trading in the RB guitar work towards the extra 10?



No, they dont work, but I am curios how much trade in is on a Wired Stratocaster, as I have one I am not using since I have the wireless one

I was told just yesterday that with the recent system change they can bring up your account using the edge card, so the phone# / edge cards are now linked. I was also told that one of the stores I visit must have deemed me to be suspicious as my Height, eye color had been entered in the system, which I guess is unusual. My guess is it's all related to that goddamn +15$ coupon that forced me to go to GS's that are usually out of my way to keep the coupon use to 1 per store. Damn you Kunai, why are you so damn lucky!!!

I guess that confirms it for me. No more trading games at the GS I've been doing all my trades at. I'll actually go out of my way to trade in games now.

personally I would cut my losses and be done with it... if you can still go to the other stores it doesn't seem worth it to bring more attention to yourself just for one store... you could possibly end up banned at all stores! but that's just me...

hey guys! im planning on starting to do some trading in and i have a question. if you do like big trade-ins with something that will give you about $50 and above, do they give you cash or only store credit? hope you guys can help me.

You can take credit or cash, but if you take cash, you only get 80% of base trade value. No trade bonuses on cash trades.

Basically, you're gonna have to trade in quite a bit to hit $50 cash, as you will not get the $10 for every 2 trade bonus.

I traded in four wii games yesterday, for the first time. This is what I got (Including edge card, and the 5 dollar extra trade in, since it's trade in two for extra 10)

Madden 08-12.70
Zelda, Twilight-23.70
Raw Vs Smackdown-16
No More Heroes-13.80

Yep! Oh, and they offered me 2.00 (before any bonus) for Battallion wars 2, but I turned it down.

From my experience, the accounts are based on your phone number and they appear to be store-specific. I have traded at a couple different stores this past week and at the stores I had never traded before they had to create a new trading account for me with my name/address phone no, etc. I'm not sure if they keep edge card data with your store accounts or not. It sure would make sense, but I've never been given any of the edge benefits without presenting my card. Also anytime I have received store credit I have had to scan my card to have it put on there. So if they have the capability to link this all up, it is not being used at the store level. Possibly at a corporate level though.


One time a couple weeks ago I brought the wrong Edge card (my old expired one) and they looked up my account by phone number and pulled my real Edge card from that - so they definitely can put it on there. It was a big relief as I was 20 miles from home and wanted to get rid of about 8 games!

Edit - Yay, people actually posted new trade-in values - OP has been updated to this point...

An employee asked why I traded in Virtua Tennis 3 twice, and the last time I traded it in was a year ago and what I would do with $200 credit I've built up over 2 years... I hate going to GS with employees who actually care.

But, I got my PSP that I spent about $40 and a handful of old games for. I won't see GS until they have another good trade-in deal in like a year.

Does anyone have problem using the $15 coupon in the SF South Bay area?
I grabbed a couple off of the counter the other day and tried to use it at one of the store. The manager said I either have to use it when I pick up the game at the store I preordered from. Would suck if I have the actual coupons and wont be able to use it!

so far, the only complaint i've heard is that i need to print out the whole email. this is at the homestead gs, and he's asked for the whole email at least the past couple coupons, including the 25% off that came from the website :rolleyes:

Yeah, I hate that store. I hardly ever go there but there is a lot of complete GCN games that I may have to go there with this week's coupon.
