Well I already have $5 down on it so I get the code regardless. I just wasn't sure how big of dip the TIVs usually get on these 50% bonus days (i.e. do they drop them so low that 30% ends up being a better deal on the higher TIV). Thank you.


Plus, if the games you're trading in are trading in for less than 7, you might as well use the trade 3 get 10 bonus.

I'll just say what everyone is thinking....you should had paired each 3 games with less $7 into the trade 3 get extra $10, and kept the ones that are more than $7 to trade on Friday when there is supposedly a 50%(60% with powerup) trade in bonus. Sorry to sound like a broken record player, I can see that your still in training, my padawan.


I already knew that the 50% promo was going on but I couldn't wait any longer to buy the PS Vita. I wanted it now! Lol

I'm only really missing out on about, more or less, 20$ which isn't that big of a deal to me. If my math is correct that is..

Let's see: (with 60% bonus)
Uncharted 3 = 22 + 13 = 35
FFXIII-2 = 22 + 13 = 35
GT3 = 12 + 7 = 19
Dead Space 2 = 9 + 5 = 14
GoW3 = 11 + 6 = 17
Total = 120$

(with my impatient method -nothing special-)
Uncharted 3 = 27
FFXIII-2 = 27
GT3 = 16
DS2 = 13
GoW3 = 15
Total = 98

So yeah, about 20$. Not that big of a deal for me but I understand that as a true CAG, you would want the most bang for your buck lol. Curse my impulse buyer mannerisms.

I traded in with the $10 bonus as well. Didn't feel like waiting for something that isn't 100% confirmed. I really don't have anything to buy from gamestop just couldn't get rid of some of the games so I figure might as well take advantage of something rather than letting my games sit there and drop values by days.

Where did you hear that? Link, please?

That'd be awesome!

Edit: in regard to picking up KI early.

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Literally just pre-ordered my copy about 50 minutes ago and the manager said i could get it tomorrow morning

wow nice. so its a pretty universal rule that the trade value drops everytime theres a deal like this?

now question, does the 50% bonus STACK with the trade 3 for 10? probably not, im just wondering since 2 of the 3 games im trading probably dropped in trade value :(

Doesn't stack. System will pick whatever is better (higher) for you.

Ah okay, well i wonder again, since mass effect 3 is guaranteed at 30 trade in until the 4th or something... does the 50% add onto that? if so that'd be awesome.

I have a ME3 to trade and wondering how much I would get for it.

Wow. Surprised GS is running the 50% bonus until 4/1. Thought it was only going to be until Sunday. Why couldn't they do this the weekend when everyone had a bunch of flips from BB?

No, sadly those two promos don't stack. You'll get 30 plus 10% PUR Bonus if applicable.

it's 23 base I think so you'd get 36.8 if you have 10% PUR. sadly GameStop is shit and makes the 30 trade a promo by itself.
