Does anybody know if I will be disqualified out of the promo if I trade in a game without the case?

Hmm. I didn't see anything about it yet but anyone know how ebgamestop is handling the pokewalker? Saw there was a $20 trade value listed for the game but was curious if they are doing like a $1 trade on the pokewalker too or just ignoring it.


Just a guess but they probably wouldn't even accept it (could be wrong on that though). It definitely wouldn't be required for the game trade (but I think you knew that ;)).

No, but some stores will charge refurb fees when you are missing the case. YMMV of course, but it still should qualify for the promo even so (just minus a few bucks).

Updated lists and database.

Cleaned up the instructions I made for inputting values into the database via four different methods. If anyone wouldn't mind taking the time to look at them to see if they are clear enough to actually use that would be much appreciated. I've gotten some information about the refurb fees on consoles and on games but I'm not sure the best way to format the console ones. Those fees probably change with the value of the console itself. The game refurb fees I got the values but not all of the corresponding ranges. Still working on that.

Updated lists and database.

Here is where we are at on the states missing information or we don't have consistent information on whether purchases with GameStop credit is taxed. What I would like to get for the two states with conflicting reports is 2-3 reports either way. Hopefully not the same number on each side, which will cause them to stay on the conflicting reports. Any CAGs in the area not reported, I would appreciate the help on finding out if you are/aren't charged tax with credit purchases.
No Information Yet: Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming

Maine - YES to charging tax on credit. Happened to me with Brutal Legend and some Wii games last month.

In fact, I had to use my debit card in the amount of like 34 cents because I didn't have enough credit to cover all the games AND the tax.

Former gamestop sm/asm here in NY. Store credit was not taxed here. I.e. if you reserved a game in full with store credit we would always use the exact amount($59.99 for example) If you reserved a game in full with cash we would have to manually add the tax amount so you wouldn't owe us when you came to pick it up.

Thanks for the info guys. I thought maybe posting a list of ones we still need in the thread and not just the first post would stimulate some information.

I have added refurb information for consoles next to their trade-in values. I don't have refurb information on the Wii and the PS3 values I'm still working on deciphering the information I was supplied by an anonymous GameStop employee. I have also added the refurb information on games. That is not near being 100% accurate but decided to post what I have been given and what we have deciphered so far.

Just use a generic black case (if you have some lying around). I purchased some generic cases for around .23 each in case of this scenario.

I am in Ohio and I have made many purchases with credit at gamestop including several in full purchases. I have always been charged tax either way. So if for some reason we are not suppose to be charged their system certainly does not take care of that.

Texas: No sales tax if paid for entirely with store credit.

Oklahoma: (Last year, as late as August) Yes, sales tax on purchases made entirely with Edge Card. I have a boatload of receipts to show such a practice. If you would like a scan of some of the receipts I can... but it's a hassle.

The only reason you are probably getting conflicting reports because of deceptive practices regarding pre-orders. On occasion I have not been charged tax on store credit with respect to pre-orders... but that may have been a system error, because I completely paid for FFXIII with credit and it was around 65 (we have a 9.75% sales tax because of the city).

In regards to the tax for credit purchases...

While what applies at one store MOST times will apply at another in the same state, it is not guaranteed. Stores can individually change their pos to add/remove tax from certain purchases and/or tender types.

For example are two of the stores near me. One taxes points cards, live cards, GIFT CARDS, everything. Tax also applies to purchases made entirely with credit. Another store, 20 minutes further away does not tax any of those things. They also do not tax purchases paid for entirely with credit.

edit----wireless 360 controller tiv $12.75 base as of 4/13/2010. gave me enough to get my broken flash drive!!!

Fresh TIVs from an hour or so ago:

:gba: Final Fantasy I + II Dawn of Souls - 2.00
:gba: Final Fantasy IV Advance - 2.25

:ds: Feel the Magic: XY/XX - 1.00

:wii: Link's Crossbow Training - 0.75

:ps2: Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter - 0.70
:ps2: Gungrave - 0.55
:ps2: Phantom Brave - 0.75
:ps2: Shadow of the Colossus - 5.50
:ps2: Ys: The Ark of Napishtim - 1.00

:psp: Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII - 4.50

:360: Madden NFL '06 - 0.50
:360: Prey - 1.00
:360: Project Gotham Racing 3 - 0.50

Phew... this brings me up to 51 games traded in the past five months. I swear I'm totally done for the time being; my collection has been sufficiently pruned. Still, with the promo and Edge card I netted over $26 in credit for these 13 games, which is not bad considering most of them were barely worth half a dollar.
