may be a rookie question, but i do not know if the 5dollars added for every wii traded game adds with the additional 30% for 5+ games... if it stacks, is the 40% (plus edge) added to the total before or after the 5.00 TIV addition.

thanks

Traded in 60 HWV games yesterday, 25 of them got slapped w/ refub fees. Total refurb fee came up to be $62.


Dude that's hella. I think you're going to the wrong GS to do trade ins. Go to GS that care less.

And go when it is really busy they do it quicker so the everyone in line wont be waiting as long.

While I can't say for sure since this deal hasn't started, I do know that historically promos never stack, unless the CSR overrides the computer to put both discounts in (which is rare). At GS, it's always been one promo + edge.

Two sundays ago Guitar Hero Aerosmith for PS3 was $10.

Nice to see Lost is getting so much. I figured it would be $1 or so. Time to dump that turd.

Exactly. Promotional offers never stack at GS...ever. The system simply does not allow it, so there are no exceptions. A manual override is the only way, and yes, they are next to impossible to get. To maybe slightly increase your odds, you might want to pre-order something. Sort of a "you help me, I help you" situation, but it's still unlikely you'll be getting anything out of it.

Just went out and picked up around 11 games from HWV and GTAIV (PS3 and 360) from BBV for about $40. According to the TIV in this thread...should have about $100 in the morning.

Thanks CAG! :D

Just a heads up for the OP. At a GS i went to, the guy was scanning the computer system looking at all the trade promotions when i saw a really good one for ppl partaking in the Blockbuster B1G1

Starting January 5th GS/EB will be running the Trade 3 Get $15 bonus on Wii, 360 & PS3 Games. He didn't let me read the whole thing (saying "whoops, you weren't supposed to see that) but I would imagine it has the same $1 minimum for the games you trade in.

I will have quite a slew of TIV's after the edit...


360
Fear Files: $7
GTA 4: $9
Spiderwick: $7
Virtua Fighter 5: $7

Wii
Battalion Wars 2: $7
Battle of the Bands: $5
Bee Movie: $5
Bully: $8
Geometry Wars: $5
Spyro Eternal Night: $5
Manhunt 2: $8
Nights: $5
Ninjabread Man: $5

Pool Party: $5
