If you trade in four wii games, do you get the extra 20% (30% w/ edge) AND the 25$ bonus, or just the 20%?


I'm almost positive their system will only give you the better of the two.

Traded yesterday, and although I had 6 games I am positive I got ripped here somehow...

Here are my pre-adjusted values:

Wii Wireless Guitar: $10
Wii Wireless Guitar: $10
Wii Guitar Hero M: $22
360 Simpsons Game: $7
360 Big Bumpin: .15cents
Wii Guitar Hero WT: $17
Wii Rock Band 2: $17
Wii LEGO Batman: $12

Total there is: $95.15

So, if the 40% + EDGE was still going on, I should've gotten $142 dollars and change... However all I got was $129.67

Looking at the receipt, I got the extra 10% on all my tradeins because of EDGE, but also recieved the $25 dollars for the 4 Wii games.

I think I got shorted a bit... but when buying the Aerosmith/Guitar for 9.99 felt great, so I didn't complain!

Traded in 10 360 games and got 272 So that isn't too bad... With the bonus I got 42 dollars for resident evil 5. Also I got an edge card free since I bought with it for 15 I got 20 bucks more with the trade in so I got a free edge membership, and 5 more bucks. On top of that I used the coupon from the magazine I got to get 10 percent off Valkeria chronicles.

What is the cash rate of GS trades?
Would it be better if I just traded in games and exchanged the card on CAG?
If I have the cash, should I get an edge while I'm trading them in?

Cash trades to GS are pretty pointless. You get 20% off the base TIV, and promos cannot apply. If you want cash, you are most certainly better selling the games yourself.

Is trading in more than 1 copy of a game YMMV if they take all? I was thinking of pooling some of my friend's and my games in to get higher %. I'm not talking about 6 of the same but like 3 or 4.

If you have more then 2 copies of the same game I would say that it is VERY YMMV. They will have trouble accepting that you and your friend have 3-4 copies of the same game between you. You might have better luck if your friend is with you and the games are on different platforms, also getting a kind and competent GS emloyee would help. Still, it would be YMMV.

Chances are, they'll talk to you like you've just stolen them...start saying loudly "oh we can't take those because they may be stolen" etc. I've seen them do that plenty of times at stores all over. I think it's a script thing they learn to do to discourage flippers or something.

A question about trade-ins:

Is there any reason, besides a disc being very worse for wear, would they not accept games?

during the Hollywood video $4 last gen game sale, i bought about 6 copies of star wars battlefront for the ps2 and traded them all in at the same time and they never questioned it. the only place where they didnt accept more than 1 title of the same game was at blockbuster. so give it a try and see what happens. who knows you might get lucky.

Huh? A standard six-axis controller gets $24.75 base?? I've been thinking of upgrading to a Dual Shock and if that quote is true, I'd definately be in.

anch, could you please check your receipt to make sure they didn't take it in as a Dual Shock 3?

Definitely sounds like some kind of mistake. The DS3 is listed at only $21 in the OP, and that was back in January. No way are they gonna give you $25 for a Sixaxis.
