Yeah, seriously, I thought this was going to be a big part of the GameDays sale but that is almost over now...

Plus new thread make me mad - couldn't find the GS trade-in thread anywhere in my subs. I thought there's no way it hadn't been posted in for several days, then, wow, there it is in a new stealth thread ;).

Just kidding JP - though if possible it would be nice if you could put Gamestop in the title. It is hard to find otherwise. I never think to search on "GS".

...Couldn't you do it? You are a moderator... ;)

Anyways, some new TIVs. No 50% going on yet. Apparently the tiered trade offer is going on at least today. Get it while it's on, I guess. I was looking forward to an extra 50% myself, but I wanted to get rid of these games ASAP and get in on the B2G2 deal. But I might have been too late to shop at the store I was at today. The fellow ahead of me raped and pillaged all of the good GCN and PS2 games. :( And of course the online inventory was wrong about the GBA games.

The receipts now don't tell you what the regular trade-in value is, so I whipped out my abacus to do some fancy math, so these may be off:

DS
Sonic Chronicles: Dark Brotherhood - $5.40
Sim City DS - $3.00

Wii
Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition - $7.00
The Conduit - $6.00
Zack and Wiki - $1.00
Monster Hunter Tri - $9.00
Wii Motion Plus - $4.00
Wii Remote (original) - $7.00

Xbox 360
Project Gotham Racing 4 - $1.50
Project Gotham Racing 3 - $0.25 (PUR copped me 2¢ extra. Apparently they round down :booty:)
Wireless controller - $11.00

GCN
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai - $0.75 (Oddly, PUR copped me 8¢ extra. Sometimes they round up?)

Yeah, but unless the OP is AWOL I don't like to mess with people's stuff ;). Look, JP is already on top of it - that was fast!

That said, can you edit the Atlus/Natsume Thread title to not be one stream of text? It throws off the margins like crazy in the mobile version. There's gotta be an easier way to list all of the niche developer sales.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed. It wouldn't be the first time they had two promos at the same time (or the first time a GS employee was wrong or didn't know about something).

Is it going to be tiered, trade 3/5 get $10/$20, or is it just trade 3 get $10?

Now I'm really glad I decided to trade in all of my high value games last week for the 40%. This is only good for stuff that's around $2.50-10.00.

Called in and got the following TIV:

:ps3: Portal 2 $24

Thinking of trading it in now since I'm just going to play it on my PC anyway. Anyone know if they continued the 25% power trade on LA Noir?

Well this doesn't bode well, from PUR website:

"Power Up steal of the week - 50% trade bonus
From Monday, April 18, to Sunday, April 24, get this coupon for 50% more trade in credit on games traded towards Mortal Kombat or Portal 2."

It costs 1,000 PUR points, and only works towards those games, ugg

1000 points, that's not a bad deal. You can always return the game later. I might use it to trade a bunch of stuff... hmmm.

Not sure if I got the tiered bonus or the coupon bonus, as I brought my 50% extra credit coupon with me. Some of the amounts don't seem to add up in my book....

Brought in the following:

:ps3: Gran Turismo 5 - $28 base / $37.80 total
:360: Madden NFL 11 - $12 base / $16.20 total
:360: NBA JAM - $15 base / $20.25 total
:360: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows - $8 base / $10.80 total
:360: X-Men Origins: Wolverine - $3 base / $4.05 total
:360: NBA2K8 - $ 0.50 base / $ 0.67 total

Total Credit: $89.77

Seems to me like the $10 extra overrode the 50% extra credit coupon? Or am I wrong?

I can post a picture of the receipt if needed.

That looks like a 25% bonus + 10% Edge/Powerup bonus. If you bought one of those 50% bonus coupons from the Powerup website, you got screwed. Take your receipt back in, along with another copy of that coupon, and see if a manager can fix it for you.

Edit: Note that those 50% coupons only apply if you were trading towards specific games. If you took credit on your card, it wouldn't have worked.

Has anyone been able to verify if the "Trade 3 games, get $10 extra" is strictly for three games or if it's tiered (e.g. "Trade 3/5/7 games, get $10/$20/$30 extra")?

hmm...Calculating what you traded in, with bonuses and everything you should have gotten $106.40.

Did you buy Mortal Kombat or Portal 2 using that coupon? Cause i think that's the reason like DJP519 said earlier.

It appears 3 is worth $10 and possibly not tiered. I traded in 8 games yesterday and got $10 bonus. I originally had thought it was the 30% because the cashier didn't seem to know what promo was going on either, but now I'm thinking I got $10 extra. I'm guessing there's some restrictions because I had a few games worth less than $2. I only had 5 games worth more than the $2. And I think accessories aren't part of the deal because I traded in plenty of those and saw nothing, not surprisingly.

For people that got the extra $10, is it Promo #11106 on your receipt?
