So this will work fine if I want to go in tomorrow, trade in 2 games, and then get used games on the B2G1 free deal, right? And then using the edge card on top of it all?

Yes. Use Edge for both.

Crazy, i did almost the same thing tonight and this sounds very similar to my scenario. Picked up 6 games for $198 using existing trade credit then took stickers off and traded those same 6 to another store for $232.50
Nice quick profit of $34.50 in trade credit
Traded 4 of the same titles you did (Same except AC2 and Batman)

The other 2 i traded tonight on 11/25

Posted Image
Madden 2010 $23 (should have went with batman for a whole $0.38 more)
Left 4 Dead 2 $30

I couldn't find AC2 at either location but when I traded the 6 games at the second location they had one used copy of MW2 for Xbox 360

If you spread them around you could've made quite a bit more. If you brought them all to GC & TRU, and just one game to AMZ. Just trying to help you make more and not have GS get all the trades. Values in red.

:ps3:
Bigs 2 best with GS+50%
Cloudy with Chance of Meatballs - $11 (same, new date) $20.83 at GC/$17 AMZ
GTA IV - $5.75 (same, new date) $12.50 TRU & AMZ

:360:
Cloudy with Chance of Meatballs - $13 (same, new date) $20.83 at GC/$17.50 AMZ
G.I. Joe - $14.25 (same, new date) best with GS+50%
Guitar Hero: Metallica - $12.75 (same, new date) best with GS+50% ($17.50 TRU & AMZ)
50 Cent - $6.50 (up $1 from OP) $12.10 TRU, $11.50 AMZ, $10 GC
Ice Age - $8.25 (down $1 from OP) $16 GC, $12.10 TRU & $11.50 AMZ is just under GS's
X-Men Origins: Wolverine - $10.25 (same, new date) $18.75 AMZ (on 11/22 has gone down since now $16), $16.80 TRU.


Well there is no Game Crazy anywhere near me so that rules out that option for me. Also I didn't trade in GTAIV, I was just reporting the value. Other than that the differences between the other options are not worth the trouble. Both Cloudy's are, in essence, the same with the 50% bonus compared to Amazon & TrU. Same goes for Ice Age. 50 cent and X-Men Origins might have been a couple dollars better, but I needed some filler for the Trade 6 promo at GS.

I see what you are saying about maximizing the TiV's, but for a difference of about $5 total on 2 games it just doesn't make sense to bother with TrU and Amazon in this case, at least for me. There is a time value in coordinating those trades and the ease of just taking a bag of games to GS usually offsets packing and mailing games out to amazon or TrU especially since your credit is available immediately once you trade your games to GS/EB. With Amazon and TrU, you have to play the waiting game, and there is still a chance that they could reject part of your trade. GS pretty much takes anything with very few questions asked and you are free to pick up some new stuff before leaving the store.

I've traded in with Amazon in the past and will do so again if they bring back some of their better promos, but this is the most profitable and easiest way to go for me.

It was yeah like $30 profit from just a few minutes. It would be really sweet if you could find a store with all 3 games with the $30 TIV. You are pretty much guarenteed to find the games worth $25. Uncharted 2, Dragon Age, Borderlands, ODST is 27 and both the stores I went to probably had half a dozen copies of all these games. If you did it'd be an easy $49.50 profit. I may go check tomorrow at some point or this weekend again.

Horrid story at Gamestop yesterday. Went there and traded two games for L4D2. Then traded a few other games. Went home to check the balance and found $0. I later found out that instead of giving me in store credit, they used it to purchase an Edge card since I didn't have one. I must of said yes or something when they were asking me. I do remember them asking me something about having an Edge card. The employee was talking in a soft tone as well. So dang that sucks. Guess I got to use the Edge card to my advantage.

It's totally worth it, anyway, and will pay for itself pretty quickly. Technically, the EDGE is free when you buy a subscription to Game Informer.

Do you live in a tax free state? I can't see where you would make more than about $15-20 doing this. Three top tier $54.99 games would be around $106 with EDGE and B2G1 (I factored in sales tax at a pretty standard 8%).

If you traded them back in (with the 50% bump, inlcuding EDGE):
AC2: $45
Uncharted, Borderlands, Dragon Age: $37.50/ea
ODST:$40.50
Batman: $34.87

Total would be right at $232.87. minus your $212, you made about $20 bucks, I reckon. If you didn't have that Ass Creed, you would have only gotten about $10.
