DS TIV as of 1/19/10 (all base):

Brain Age $4.25
New Super Mario Bros: $15
Mario Kart DS: $20
Kirby: Squeak Squad: $6.50

My fifth game was Tetris DS (which is still at $15). Luckily, I live near a decent Gamestop. Manager let me know it was incredibly rare and advised me to hang on to it (~$50 on ebay). I would have had no idea..

Still, nice to walk out with $64.05 for four games that were just stacked on a shelf collecting dust.

Oh I thought it might sell higher on Ebay, because its a PS3 game and it seems for the most part they hold their value longer than Xbox 360 games. Guess I was wrong. . .:cry:


There have been a lot of PS3 exclusives that stay at $60 for a long, long time. Resistance 2 is one of them. But you can always find these games for much cheaper on reselling sites.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Not sure where to post this, but yesterday I found I was missing my edge card (with my sweet, sweet store credit on it). Turned out I had lost the card, I called a few stores to see what they could do. They all said the same thing, its like money, we can't recover it for you. I call customer service and they tell me to go to the store and give them my EDGE card number (which I had since I listened to IATCG's advice) and tell them to call customer service. Went to one store, they wouldn't do it, went to another and the lady said she'll try. After five minutes on the phone, I had a new EDGE card with all of the store credit still on it (guess it was never used!). I thanked the lady and used the credit to preorder White Knight Chronicles.

Long story short, if you lose your edge card you can recover the credit as long as you have the EDGE account number and ID.

Another good part was the GS I went to was near a TRU and a BB, so I had the BB matched the TRU deal.

Wow. You're pretty lucky. No way my BB would match a gift card deal.

Question. I plan on trading in AC2 tomorrow. As posted, current TIV is $25.

With a 30% increase it would put it at about $32. Can I use my Edge card to receive an additional 10% value tacked on?

Thank You.

Yes, you should receive 35$ credit in the end.

25 + 25 * 0.3 + 25 * 0.1 = 35

For the 30% trade in deal, do you have to spend it on something? Or can you just recieve the credit?

I am planning to reserve ME2 and MAG (And White Knight Chronicles/Bioshock 2), and am trying to decide would it be better to try to just trade the 2 games i plan to trade now (Bayonetta and L4D2) in with the 19.99 new game deal, and get a gift reciept and return them, or go for the 30% deal+edge card. (Not sure if i were to get the 40% extra deal on a card, if i could throw it on the reserves later)

(Not sure if anyone has been turned down trying to return a game from the 19.99 deal with a Gift Reciept, because if i get turned down, im screwed towards getting WKC or Bioshock 2)

According to the CAG database both Bayonetta and Left 4 Dead 2 have a TIV of 25$, so if you just straight up traded those two in you would get (with edge):

50 + 50 * 0.3 + 50 * 0.1 = 70$ credits

However, with the current 19.99 new game deal you would get the net value of (again, with edge):

(25 + 15) * 2 + (25 * 0.1) *2 = 85$ credits

Pretty significant difference if I do say so myself. Just make sure that you ask for a gift receipt for the new games!

The upside of the 30% promo is that you don't have to use any of your cash. You must make an investment to get that bonus $15. But for the sake of the person quoted, since he was willing to pay full price for 2 upcoming games this deal is probably for him.

I don't shop at GS enough that I can rationalize spending $40 for $15 more in credit. Especially when I usually find games much cheaper elsewhere.

Yeah, but at the same time, since i would only be getting 70 dollars for the 2 trade ins, i'd end up having to fork up 50ish dollars whenever i go to pickup ME2 and MAG, if i do the 20 dollar deal (And it works), i'd only have to spend around 40 dollars to cover both of those games. (Seeing as the games i'd be returning is 59.99 each, the same price of MAG/ME2)

Yes.

Try listing it in the "same game, different platform" thread in the trade section.
