So odd ball question. Over the last two weeks I've traded in 2 copies of SSFIV that I ordered online using the $10 coupon codes. At what point do they say wtf and ban a user from making anymore trades? I was thinking about trading in a third copy this weekend if the TIV holds above the $14 point I bought it for.

i have done six new super mario wii at all different stores. I am now stopping.

new to GS trading, I'm guessing the 50% trade in bonus and the 3 (of at least $1.xx) for plus $10 deal do not stack/coincide? If not I guess i just need to trade in cheaper games for th 3/$10 deal.

next person who asks this question should be shot.

jp -how about adding your text (*THIS IS A PROMO, WILL NOT STACK WITH EXTRA 50% WITHOUT AN OVERRIDE.*) to the 3/$10 promo too? Of course, that assumes anyone read the OP.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

only at Babbages.

(showing my age FTL!)



LOL i used to work at Babbages before all the buyouts. One of my "duties" as ASM was to spy on the EB games at the other end of the mall and get their prices. This was before stores were online lol.

Sears was good to me this month. As always, I left a few things over the weekend just in case another cag came through. I went back today and bought a few more things to trade to gamestop. Back on topic...

I was quoted (but did not trade)

TNA Impact Wii - 3.00 base. Makes more sense to pair it with some other cheap stuff for the 3/$10 promo.

I agree. I once ordered something that literally sat at the post office by my house for a week before they finally delivered it.

Companies do hold shipments for a few days when customers use the cheapest form of shipping even if its right next door.

genji - so the computer was able to give you the best deal no problem? Or did you split that up into multiple transactions?

6/7

360:
Battlefield Bad Company 2 $20
Splinter Cell: Conviction $18
Super Street Fighter 4 $17
Final Fantasy 13 $15
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 $16

Wii:
New Super Mario Bros $25
Super Smash Bros. Brawl $14.75

Be sure to separate the games that get the 50% credit and those guaranteed to get $25. I traded them all at once but got the 50% credit on all of them. Once I looked at the receipt outside I realized I wasn't getting $25 promo on a few games that would benefit me so the transaction had to be re-done.
