Just traded in:

All 360 $ base TIV
Call of Duty Black Ops $25
Assasin's Creed Brotherhood $22
Singularity $8

BTW I think the other GS trade thread should be merged with this thread. I initially did not realize I posted this info into the thread where JP does not updates the prices for the tracker. Just a suggestion, carry on.

50% trade up doesn't take away from the fact that you still have to pay MSRP for anything and everything at GameStop.


Seriously? Then you're doin it wrong.

Several people have quoted 25 for cod black ops but the op still has $18 listed. Did someone post 18 today and I missed it meaning it went down or was that a mistype?

Not if you are buying used games. I wouldn't buy anything new from GS unless you are looking for exclusives.


They have great prices on CEs too.

Thinking about trading in Fable III since I haven't even beaten II yet.

Is anyone else baffled by Gamestop's weekly email which says get 50% more trade in credit on any games traded in between now and Sunday 3/6 only to then have a weekly coupon which offers an extra 25% trade in credit on games traded towards purchasing MvC3?

Are people really that dumb or is GS that dumb?

Will gamestop actually give you 75% if you ask?

No. Promos don't stack. It would require a manual override which doesn't happen all that often.

Noooo! That other thread is like ten pages of people bitching about Gamestop, with maybe a handful of quotes sprinkled in. Let them have that thread to bitch in, and keep this thread relatively clean, please!

That reminds me, I need to pop over there and pull out the prices quoted over there. I have no problem with that thread staying separate. As you say it is full of people saying you get more here for X and Y. We get enough of that in this thread already. Granted it's not as bad as it used to be, but I would prefer to keep as much out as possible.

Also, updated lists and database.

Gamestop sells that game for $18 or $20 used now so that makes sense. Before Christmas, they sold the game for $30 and I think the TIV was a little higher. Only DS games I know of that get over $10 base are any of the Mario ones and maybe Tetris DS still.

I wonder if it is better to trade in black ops for 33.75 over at amazon or 38 at gamestop. If I get edge card, would they give me extra 10%?

Once in a while I get a dumb GS employee that does a manual override for me to get both bonus, but it is very rare and isn't suppose to happen.

It normally happens when I go trade it in, they say you can get 25% for pre ordering(which ever new release is being promoted) I then say no thanks, I get more for the other bonus.

No they stack, let me ring you up, and he does an override.

Sadly the 2 guys that used to do that, no longer work at Gamestop, I can only assume that is the reason they are no longer there.

It's because you call them dumb.

No, GS keeps all the other dumb employees that don't make mistakes in my favor.

It was reported as $25 yesterday. It seemed odd but I have seen weirder items from GameStop before.

Can I stack the 25% towards Pokemon or Killzone 3 with the extra 50% trade-in?

Microsoft or 3rd party 'gamepad'? i used to buy/trade controllers all the time, sucks knowing it's impossible to trade/replace them for little cost anymore.

TIVs:

Rock Band Country track pack 2 (360) $6.00
Splatterhouse (360) $16.00

ended up picking up You Don't Know Jack new. Not a bad trade off. Especially since I only paid roughly $30 for Splatterhouse and Rock Band track pack 2 which i mainly bought to just transport the songs to RB3.
