Also if you read the bottom of my picture it says "Offer not good on special editions or bundles". So no gears of war 2 LE :cry: (Don't know if that was answered or not but there ya go) Hope this helps you guys!



well, straight up you cannot get the LE editions, but offer to pay the difference...and no biggie...(handled by 2 different store managers) the only challenge now is getting to the store right at release as my local stores are rarely receiving any LEs that were not preordered.

or

Also I traded in 2 wii games (Wario Ware : Smooth Moves and Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles) for Call of duty world at war (Xbox 360). Just if anyone wanted to know if you could trade in 2 Wii games for a Xbox 360 game. (Don't know if this was answered or not but there you go :)) Also if you read the bottom of my picture it says "Offer not good on special editions or bundles". So no gears of war 2 LE :cry: (Don't know if that was answered or not but there ya go) Hope this helps you guys!


Didn't we already have these in the first post or is this something different?

would it be worth trading in
Super Paper Mario
Cooking Mama: Cook off
Super Mario Galaxy
Rayman Raving Rabbids

and then getting Fable 2 and Fallout 3?

I thoroughly dislike Gamestop's ridiculous promos. We are better off joining Goozex.com and trading with peers and only spending shipping cost and $1 trade fee.

What's the cheapest game I can buy from somewhere? I have one game on the list but none of my other games are eligible (except Burnout Paradise but that was taken off).

Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga is $14.99 at Blockbuster used.

You could theoretically pick one up using the Cellfire coupon + Edge from GS for $11-12, I think. Just a note, Edge works with this deal, giving you $20 + 10% of the value. I traded :360: GTA4 ($12.50) and :wii: Metroid Prime 3 ($12.50) and got $21.25 for each of them.

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.

Yea, if they give you any trouble just remind them that there is clearly no mention of the 360 pack in games not being eligible.

I think it is a rip off that they have WiiFit and balance board on the list. Who ever trades that in must be d-u-m!

(Side note: Yes I know it is misspelled moran.)

Cool, thanks JJSP -- I'll call them later today. Turns out I do have two things, MoH: Heroes 2 and Orange Box (360). Not tempted to trade OB yet, but thinking about trading it anyway for CoD:WaW.

I just noticed Rapala Fishing Tournament for Wii is on the trade list. The game from last year? That game sucked. I think I can buy that from a co-worker real cheap.

Scored it for $10.,

Well, I am going to pick up a game today...finally have two games to trade in.

Now, what do I want:
- Call of Duty 5
- Gears 2
- Little Big Planet
- Left 4 Dead

I didn't play the L4D demo yet, so I may wait on that. I'm leaning towards CoD5 since I love FPS.

Anything but COD5 is gold

I went against your vote and picked up COD:WaW.

I still will get GoW2 and LBP eventually...way too many games right now anyways.

I blame CAG for too many games. I just start picking up and flipping for deals that I see here.

I went to do this today and the system wouldn't automatically adjust the values on my two games when the clerk tried to do it with my pre-existing pre-order for Mirror's Edge. Seemed to work fine if he just flat-out rang up a copy of Mirror's Edge alongside the trade-in. I suppose he'd rather not cancel my pre-order though, because he just manually adjusted the values to $20 instead. Worked out in my favor, because then my Edge card added 10% to each $20 value. $4 in my favor; yay.

I was wondering if anyone tried to trade the games with cellfire trade % + edgecard?? and apply it to the game?

Probably not since there is no value associated with the trade ins. Just a straight 2 games in get one game out.

Hoping to have enough games after one more visit to a blockbuster for 3 games.

Well, technically, it adjusts the trade in value of each game to $20. However, I'm 99% sure that both promos would not combine.

No need to try. The ONLY GS promo that stacks with another automatically in the system is the EDGE bonus.

You may find employees who are willing to stack these things together, but they end up doing it manually.

I just grabbed Bully for Wii at Blockbuster for 8$ after some tradeins (regular 19.99). However, I just noticed the Wii cover does not have a bar code in it. Will GS still take this? (Manual is there though and poster.)

*Never mind, I'm blind. Bar code for bully is very thin and hiding under Blockbuster sticker.

Is there any restriction from trading in 2 copies of the same title?

Just got back from a BB/GR and had picked up the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man (both 360) for 14.99 a piece. They may have been marked wrong, because I noticed when he was ringing it up they were at 24.99 and then a -10.00 was after it. I am going to hit up another one and try to find two more games to hopefully pick up Gears 2 and CoD: WaW tonight. I will post again about 10 or so with my findings.

If you're doing this deal I don't see as how it would be worth all the trouble in the long run. If you're paying more than $15 for each of the two trade-in games then you're only saving $10 (2x $15 for the used titles + $19.99 price for new game = $50+ tax). Unless I can find two of the titles on that list for under $10 each it's just not worth the hassle (in my opinion).
