Came to $113 or so, got an edge card to stack (the guy even offered to do it for me... FYI prices reflected are the 50% credit, not 40%) which basically cost $4 or so after that.

Traded (what I paid for them initially in parentheses):

New SMB DS - 25.50 (came with a DS off Craigslist)
Assassin's Creed DS: 7.50 (paid $6)
Motorstorm: 6 (paid $14)
Rock Band Track Pack Vol. 2: 12.00 (paid 7.50)
Folklore PS3: 13.50 (paid $20)
Pure PS3: 30 (paid $15)
Army of Two: 10.50 (paid 20)
Ratatouille: 7.50 (came with a DS off of Craigslist. boring kids crap)
Resident Evil DS: 9.00 (also with the Craigslist DS)

So I now have an Edge card and over $100 in store credit for games that I paid less than $90 for total. I'm so glad I saw this thread!


Is there any way we could get the base prices listed? If my math is correct it should be this:
PS3
Army of Two - 7
Folklore - 9
Pure - 20
Motorstorm - 4
Rock Band Track Pack Vol. 2 - 8

DS
Assassin's Creed - 5
New Super Mario Bros - 17
Ratatouille - 5
Resident Evil - 6

This isn't just towards you either. If you guys can, when you post your items please try to post the base values. You can post the amount after percentage too, but my math isn't always the best when I do it in my head and takes me a little longer to update. Also post the systems, some games may or may not be platform specific, but I don't always know that.

What about broken systems? I know they don't get full credit. I was wondering if anyone had an idea how much they take off or give?

That would be nice if they took a broken system, but I highly doubt it. I got a broken screen on an old psp phat and Gameboy SP :/

They will take broken systems on PS3, 360 and Wii. I don't know about portables though. I think the general rule of thumb is that it has to be easily repairable to take them. I doubt they would consider the broken screen items.

Please don't beat me about the head and face. I'm just curious if it stacks with EDGE since it specifically says no combining, but I've never seen them turn down an EDGE combo.

Anyone catch heat for using the EDGE here?


Edge always stacks with game trade-in promos. An example of something that wouldn't stack with this tiered trade promo is the DS coupon that came out last Friday. However, you can always use your Edge to knock off an extra 10% off used game prices, which isn't always the case at some places like Game Crazy with the MVP card...

Matters how broken. I traded in a spare PSP 1000 which was missing it's Memory Stick door and Analog nub and had no refurb fee.

P.S. $25 more to a Wii!

Back in January when they were running a $25 bonus trade, I traded in a semi-working phat ds and was hit with a $10 refurb fee. Base TIV was $20+ $25 bonus -$10 so the net to me was $35. I told them up front that it was not 100%-sometimes it wouldn't read games but it would always power up. Also one of the hinges was broken. Long story short its definitely worth a try especially if you've got a good relationship at a particular GS.

I had been saving my GS credit to buy a PS3, but I decided to bite the bullet and get a Wii so my wife and I could play some games together. Our families come around often, so that factored into the decision as well. So far, I've used my GS credit to buy:

Wii
used remote and nunchuk
Madcatz Wii skin
2 Madcatz charging docks
2 Nyko Perfect Shots
2 Donkey Konga bongo drums
Donkey Konga
Rayman Raving Rabbids (Wii)
Ghost Squad

I also used a free $25 Amazon gift card to get:

Wii component cables
Gamecube memory card
2GB Sandisk SD card

Even with all of those purchases, I still have about $200 left in GS credit. I love CAG! :D

No thanks needed. To be honest, I REALLY didn't want to start a new thread but I got tired of dealing with the Character Limit and trying to rework my one post to get around it. Got to be too irritating today so I just said screw it at that point.

Your math looks mostly right.

Unfortunately, I just typed up what was on my receipt, which doesn't provide a breakdown pre-edge bonus. I didn't quite feel like doing the math either, so I just wrote what it said, which is likely what everone else is doing. ;)

Actually the pre-edge and pre-bonus amount is on the receipt. I wish I had a scan somewhere of one of my old receipts to point it out. Crap.

Game code Number traded in @ original TIV
Bonus: amount Promo#
Disc: amount added for Edge Edge Card 10%

For instance:

Traded in my old 360 (4/06) and was able to get $117.25 credit with the charge cable and an extra battery pack. Not bad at all considering my warranty is up next month and I really didn't want to chance having to pay for a repair when I can get a new jasper arcade unit for $199. Used the TIV to pay off RE5 Collector's and Killzone 2. Woo!

I just beat FEAR 2 today. I got it from WB for 36.99 and now I am gonna trade it in with some old PS2 games so I can get 37.50 for it.

These prices really make me cringe. At least I can unload my phat near battery dead DS for a $85 DS Lite.

When did the end date change to 3/15/09 by the way?

Me TIVs:

Gears of War 2 - $25
Call of Duty 4 - $16
Mass Effect - $4
Bioshock - $9
EarthDefenseForce 2017 - $3
Lego Star Wars: The Original Saga - $6

Total $94.50 after 50%. I did the math and I originally paid a total of $125 for all the games combined, so I didn't lose too much value. Most of my depreciation was from Mass Effect, which was the biggest mistake in my CAGing career.

So I guess anything with a TIV under $6 should wait until the +$10 deal, right?

I was looking to trade-in somethings I can probably finish but I'll only get $60 for 6 games. Not incredible, imo. I guess better than without the promo...
