Is base $25 the maximum trade value at Gamestop for any game (excluding the promo) normally?


No, they sometimes have $30 TIV for newer released titles.

Btw, I know that the extra 50% doesn't stack with the $25 titled games, but can the extra $10 stack if you trade in 3 of the games on the $25 list?

Tried to trade in MLB 10 but my edge card was causing their computers to crash. I was told this is a nation wide problem for GS with use of the edge cards. The other store in my area had the same issues. So if it is nationwide, people may have problems with trade-ins today. Just a heads up.


Had something similar happen to me. The entire district's credit system was down for a good couple of hours but it seems they've got it up and running again.

Trade in 6/9/10

Base Value

Super Mario Bros. New Wii $25.00

DS System (Lite) w/AC & Stylus $55.00


I was surprised to get $55.00 $80 after bonus, and received the same amount for the PSP 1000 last week, when other cags the same day reported getting $35.00 base. Does Gamestop give different trade in prices for systems based on location?



lucky i got 65$ with bonus where was this?

I was under the assumption that the $25 base does stack with the 50% bonus.

is there an actual "official" list of the $25 base games. I know the OP has them but I mean online or at the store?

also any CAGs hit up a NYC GS recently? I plan on getting on buying an Edge Card + GM sub so I can then trade in some stuff.

That is weird since they essentially removed Alan Wake from the list of games that earn 50%? That is a relatively new game.

haha I always wonder if people realize they get the same if not more on gamecube trade ins by trading in the accessories and keeping the actual cube:bouncy:

I never did, and thanks for the heads up :D I'm sure I can sell off the cords and find them in the misc. electronics bin at my local Pawn Shops.

It says in the OP that it does not stack with the 50% bonus without an override.

Good call on that. Will do that here in a few minutes. Got the lists caught up, almost done getting the database up to date.

Updates to lists database complete. Thanks for the ideas and wording MSUHitman and io. Got that taken care of as well.


No problem. Just saw that person a few pages back trade in the PS2 Network Adapter for $5 when I knew it was worth more, but what's it down to now, $20, $30?

Also should Wavebird controllers be added in addition to the Gamecube component cables? I remember when I got mine for about $15 each at Gamestop people seemed to think that was a really good deal vs. what it costs online.

Gotta love Gamestop's markup on Tetris DS. Offer $13.50 base, sell it for $49.99 base.

n iv got 4 wavebirds, but what's with it? is it cheaper at gamestop or sup? i know those component cables are rare, are the wavebirds?

just to keep in mind, for those who wish to trade in games where it would be beneficial for you to trade it in for 50% or 3 for 10, separate the trade-ins.

For example, if I wanted to trade in Bad Company 2 and wanted to use the 50% deal on that game and have 3 other games which I would use for the 3 for 10 deal, separate Bad Company 2 from the other trade-ins to be safe.

I traded in some yesterday and they used RDR for the 3 for 10 deal, instead of the 50%, it took about 10 minutes to resolve the problem.

That sucks Ichigo. I have to remember that so I don't forget.
I know the 50% is better for $20+ tradeins, and that ends this sunday.
The trade in 3 get +$10 is good for $1.01-$19.99 tradeins, and good till 6/27, so that goes an extra 2 weeks.
This list is the guaranteed $25tiv and is good til 6/27 also.

I have to write all this stuff down and organize my playthru schedule :)

You are mistaken.

It is better to trade in games that have a value of $6.66 or more via the 50% deal and anything $1.01 to $6.65 should be traded in via the 3 for $10 deal (assuming they are for the applicable systems).

For example 3 games at $6 TIV each would yield $29.80 (under 3fer$10 and edge) and $28.80 for +50% and edge

For example 3 games at $7 TIV each would yield $33.10 (under 3fer$10 and edge) and $33.60 for +50% and edge

Yeah I just ordered me a copy of Demon Souls used off GS for 12 bucks. Finally got a chance to use one of these 10$ coupons. Any chance the 50% trade in gets extended? I would assume no since its a pretty good trade offer.

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.

Yep you'd get double the credit. $40 versus $18 with edge/cag16.

Yes it would. If you have a 10$ coupon plus edge it comes out to 17.XX. Then it trades in for 25 plus 60% (50% and EDGE) for a 40$ trade in. 23$ extra in trade in is really good.

Even Amazon is offering 29.50 for the trade. I might use my 20$ SMG2 credit to get another copy for about 7-8 bucks, and be done with GS and these coupons. I doubt they will make it here to trade in for the 50% but getting Amazon credit isnt bad either.


Yep you'd get double the credit. $40 versus $18 with edge/cag16.


Or 20pre which takes off 20%. The total comes to 21.59 before tax. I paid 18.09 after tax using a 10$ coupon.

It's probably a former rental someone traded in. I know Family Video does the white rings, not sure who else.

They're not as rare as the component cables, but they're still fairly rare as they were released near the end of the Gamecube's life cycle and finding them in good, working condition is kinda hard I believe.
