Can anyone else confirm that their BB's are running this longer? I'd rather go tomorrow...


I thought it was printed in big bold letters in next week's ad '50% extra trade in'

PSNOT Pinball Arcade Series 2 underway! - Week 4 / Whitewater & Whirlwind

I just got back from my BB and I asked if this was the last day for 100% bonus and was told that yes, it is.

The guy forgot to scan my rewardzone card though so I missed out on the extra 10%, it's not much but since I'm already here, anyone know if you can call up BB and ask them to adjust?

Not sure about calling but if you PM one of the gaming reps on the BB forums, the will send you a giftcard.

Actually, he'll get $0.50 for each thanks to the 100% bonus. ;)


Wait so will they let me trade in 50 ps2 games with GameStop envelopes on them?

YMMV on how willing the employee would be, and you're definitely risking banishment from future trades for the (IMO paltry) $25 those 50 PS2 games would get you.

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.

Not happily. I took eight disc only PS2 games in and those alone took about eight minutes to go through. Some titles are harder to find, it seems now, and they have to manually type in every game you bring in. But, in all honesty, I'm betting they can turn you away anyway if they'd like.

Yeah then never mind, I would spread them out throughout best buys but it's not worth my gas/time

When I traded in 72 PS2 (almost all sports) games in one shot last year (back when $1 was the minimum) I was tempted to print out all the UPCs (from UPC database or wherever) on paper and have them scan that. I figured it would take me a while to do that and they might not even use it so I decided not to and waste their time instead. I brought them all in on a CD spindle and it took about a good 45 minutes for all the look ups.

I think people are assuming people trading it bulk PS2 games have 10 copies of Madden 05 which would put them over the limit of multiple copy trades.

quick question.

Is the 10% bonus for trade ins for Unlocked members calculated before or after the 100%?

The 10% always applies to the base value of a game, so while it's technically added after the 100% bonus, it doesn't consider the post-100% value. It helps to look at it like each game gets 110% bonus rather than view the promos separately.

Example: A game with $5 base value would give you $10.50 after the 100% and 10% GCU bonus.

Just traded in my copy of PS3 Borderlands 2 in hopes of it being on sale during black Friday so I can get it on the Xbox, it was hard to do but had to be done to get halo preordered... I will miss it.

On a side note the guy forgot to put in my 10% bonus on my trade in and I told him about it after he already put the credit on the card so he just added the 10% of the trade in value after the 100% bonus so I got an extra $2 I wasn't supposed to get, I will miss this promo, hopefully TIV do go up next week.

I ditched mine when they first announced the inFamous / GoW collections. I figure it's a given that an Uncharted set is on the way.
