Got about 200 in credit, my wife was with me and told me to get a 360 elite and she'd pay the rest as my bday was yesterday. In my excitement I didn't really take a look at my receipt till I got home and then realized that they didn't apply my fing edge card (I mean come on they put the credit on it to begin with) so my wife went back and they couldn't figure out how to fix the transaction so they just gave me a 20 gift card instead, so once again gamestop has reaffirmed why I avoid gamestop except during good promos.


You already got rid of FO3 GOTY and it's already dropped to $20 in TIV? :roll: Again, GS reaffirms my deep hatred of the company. But what do you mean by 'they didn't apply your Edge card'. I hope you don't mean you bought a USED 360, since that's taking an unneccessary risk with an already sketchy piece of hardware.

If i trade in 6 current gen games and then a few GBA games, will the bonus apply to ALL of the games? Or just the current gen ones?

It all depends on if the promo says it specifically has to be current gen games or not, though I would not expect to get much of anything for the GBA games, jeremiah.

EDIT: From the website

Trade in any 2, 4 or 6 Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS or PSP games, and get an extra 10%, 20% or 40% trade-in credit respectively


So unfortunately, it only qualifies for 360, PS3, Wii, DS or PSP games, though the 25% more bonus trade offer(towards pre-order of MW2, AC2 and a bunch of other games)doesn't specify systems specifically, so ask them to credit the GBA games towards THAT promo.

EDIT: Quote below:

Trade any games towards the pre-order or purchase of Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed 2, New Super Mario Bros. or Left 4 Dead 2 and receive an extra 25% Trade-in Credit!

Ya I tried Fallout 3 out didnt really care for it so traded it. No I bought a brand new 360 I wouldn't even consider a used one, they 'somehow' didn't apply my edge card to my trade ins and tried to stiff me on the extra 10% and only give me the 40% promo.

You're quite welcome.

Ya I tried Fallout 3 out didnt really care for it so traded it. No I bought a brand new 360 I wouldn't even consider a used one, they 'somehow' didn't apply my edge card to my trade ins and tried to stiff me on the extra 10% and only give me the 40% promo.


They did that with me too, except I was trading in my old PS3(40 gb) and I had an assload of games. Initially I wanted to use the PS3 bonus trade promo %, but then I realized that would be double dipping for the same purchase, so I asked them to do the Batman:AA pre-order % deal.

However, they still figured I was trying to double dip on the PS3 promo and didn't apply ANY promo(just the EDGE card) to my trades. It took about 2-3 weeks, but I finally got it all straightened out. I ended up paying about $27 out of some credit I had leftover for B:AA and everything was fixed.

Did you try and check last known values in the database or in the first page of this thread? Thats the best way to get some type of basis to go off.

OK guys one more thing. I want to get Tekken 6 tomorrow. Now including all the games and the 10,20,40%(edge car bonus 20%,30%,50%) i got around 116 dollars give or take between ps2,ps3,and 360 games. Now what should i do since the 25% extra trade in credit toward tekken 6 is in effect so i can get that for free or so and still save alot of credit for something else like DJ Hero?

Even if it was in perfect condition, you're only going to get $175 for it, and you won't get full price on it because it's in poor condition so I say sell it to the craigslist person. If he doesn't do it, someone else will.

i had a guy buy it yesterday for $200 so it worked out better.

Gamestop would have given $145 for it tops.

Cheapy is there any way to show the last date the TiV was confirmed right on the GameStop page when you look up a game? It looks like you have to click through 2 more times to find that data. That is one of the nice things about having all the data listed in this thread.

Wow, sorry to go off topic but having access to data makes everything easier. I know you CAGS pick up cheap games. Unlike me, it's hard to let a game go if I'm not getting my money back or making a profit. Give me your insight on this.

For those folks asking about TIVs, it might be faster to simply call your local GS and ask, rather than waiting for someone here to reply to you. If you need values of one or two games, most stores should tell you right over the phone.

The tiered trade never has a minimum value. The info in the first post is pulled directly from GameStop's website and when they have minimums it is placed in their information. No listed minimum, there isn't one. That is why a lot of people love the tiered trade because they can use multiples of $0.20 trade-ins like old Maddens to boost up to the maximum extra percentage. However, since this is limited to all current gen systems and handhelds that wont be as easy because a lot of those that people used were PS2 games. The only ones that are cheap to buy on spot and use to boost up value are the Burger King games.
