$1 minimum?


I can finally get rid of that fucking copy of Perfect Dark Zero that's besmirched my games collection for so long.

:bouncy:

Same with me for Prey.

Why didn't this work when I tried it this morning?

I ended up trading the stuff in towards the Street Fighter IV game to get the benefit of the 30% (with edge), but this deal did not work.

I have an answer. This promotion is not working yet. It IS active, their systems just aren't working right. An email went out earlier today to all stores telling them to override trade ins with the extra $10 until its fixed.

Also update in TIV for OP: :360: Transformers is now $5.

Thanks for the update. I just had a problem with this less than an hour ago. The guy scanned my games and quoted me the total I came up with including the +10 (twice) but when he tried to complete it, it only reflected one +10. I'll try again tomorrow.

Unless I'm reading you wrong, that's what they're supposed to do right now. You won't get an extra $10 for each game, but for every group of three.

Example:
Transformers, The -16.50
-1 @ 5.00 (actual trade in price)
Bonus -10.00 Price Overide (the $10 bump for trading in three at once)
Disc: 1.50 Edge Card 10% (self explanitory)

Okami -7.70
-1 @ 7.00
Disc: 0.70 Edge Card 10%

BioShock - 8.80
-1 @ 8.00
Disc: 0.80 Edge Card 10%

Preown total -33.00
Subtotal 0.00
Purchase Total 0.00
>>Refund Due -33.00

Prev Balance: 558.94
Refund Amount: 33.00
New Balance: 591.94

The way they manually ring it up actually works in our favor. Instead of the $10 going under "Bonus: $3.33" per game, they are adding $10 to the trade in value of one game...before Edge. So in essence we are getting an $11 bonus for trading in 3 (Edge 10% is being applied to the $10 bonus. Normally Edge 10% is not applied to the bonus promo)

Change is fucking good - but folding money is better.

Good point, I guess I didn't even notice that in my trade. Gave me an extra $2. Not huge, but definitely nice and makes up for past refurb fees.

As of about 5:30 EST tonight, it still had to be done via overide. There should be some sort of signage in the store though.

As stated above, it isn't neccessarily a bad idea to have them override it. Because just as someone else stated, you can essentially get $11/3 Games due to the way they correct the TIV. Also if for some reason they don't have signs they could call another store.

I can confirm the $1 minTIV and the fact that it must be an overide.
Just make sure you discuss it with the employee and it'll be fine.
I didn't get $10 added to one game but it was split up among them.
Dolt that I am I didn't find out when the promotion ends.:bomb:

Here's the store credit that I was given today for these 360 games:

Assassin's Creed $5.00
Bonus: $3.33 Price Overide
Disc: $0.83 Edge Card 10%
(Total $9.16)

Marvel Ultimate Alliance Special Edition $10.00
Bonus: $3.33 Price Overide
Disc: $1.33 Edge Card 10%
(Total $14.66)

BioShock $8.00
Bonus: $3.34 Price Overide
Disc: $1.13 Edge Card 10%
(Total $12.47)
-Trying to think of something creative.-

A manager I knew said that this promotion ends Jan 25th.... He had to override the trade in, but everything should be fixed by tomorrow he says.

Here are some more TIVs

College Hoop 2k7 (PS3) - $1.50
Fracture (360) - $12.00
Guitar Hero III (360) - $5.00
Open Season (360) - $3.00
Cars (360) - $4.00
Fuzion Frenzy 2 (360) - $5.00


So glad I got rid of college hoop 2k7.

arghhh! This kind of sucks. Did the +$5/Wii Game deal end yesterday or today?


Yesterday. I did all my trading yesterday to take advantage of both the Wii +$5 and the 3/4/5 bonus trade. Both are now dead replaced by the trade 3 get +$10.

yeah, I lost out on about $30 by not trading in my Blockbuster Wii stuff yesterday. I figured since it was in the email, it ran til the 8th, but in fine print that I neglected to read, the Wii +$5 deal ended on the 4th. Today being the 5th meant bye bye $30. Also had to have manual override. Picked up a few Mario Power Tennis, Star Wars KOTOR II at Blockbuster, still traded in above $8 each. Not as nice as the Trade 3/4/5, but I'll take what I can.

I probably should read first, but this appears to be YMMV right now. I went to three locations today, none of which had the system apply the bonus value. The first guy I went to was really nice and just kept adding 10% until it reached the total that I would have gotten, I even got $3 extra out of the deal. The other two stores didn't even know about the deal, and the system didn't initiate the deal when I tried to trade, so I skipped them.

it does help that it isn't in the system, b/c the edge bonus is applied to the adjusted price, at least that was the case for me today.
