These 'might' get you the 30% bonus, since they are DLC:

http://www.gamestop....-card-dlc/84722

http://www.gamestop....-card-dlc/84723

http://www.gamestop....ption-dlc/84612

When I got some cheap DLC, as the helpful people in this thread mentioned, I said "I'd like to put this trade towards 'enter DLC name' downloadable content." And, my trade in credit went up.


They work with the promo. I have the flyer and PSN credit/Plus subscriptions are on it.

How does the Power Trade toward DLC work? DO i need to know the games i want prior to going or do they have some sort of list i can look at? Or better yet, does that work for PSN cards lol?

Also, does anyone know TIV for Starhawk? Trying to recoup as much as i can and since there is some stuff on PSN that i could use...


If you want to save the credit and if you are cool with your Gamestop's employees just tell them you want to trade towards the DLC promo and just pick a game that has cheap DLC (I used ModNation Racers). They'll pull up the list and just pick the cheapest. The code will print out on your trade receipt so it's really quite simple. Of course this is YMMV as some employees can be d-bags about it and just in general.

And yes, as previously mentioned, it does work with PSN cards as well. My advice would be to get the cheap DLC though if you're doing a large trade and redeem your PUR points towards the $3.00 PSN cards they offer or better yet (and more bang for your points) get the $5.00 off any purchase coupon as those work in store with the PSN cards.

Was this without a harddrive?


No harddrive,just the 360,av cable, and the powercord.

Just traded my 360 in and got $70.00 base and a extra $21.00 for the promo. It was the old fat white version with a wireless controller. Thats not a bad amount of money IMO.



If you have the PUR bonus coupon you get an extra $50 on top of the $70 to make it $120 total for an old 360 core system without hard drive. I have a few of them I need to use (or sell) before they expire (5/13 last day to use)

The other dude didn't have to be a dick about it, but yeah this has been the case since the beginning of April. Gamecube stuff is "Officially Collectible" as they put it. It won't be long until PSP is the same, with the news of 25% of stores being gutted of PSP games.

If you're thinking about trading in an any game cube stuff, think again and trade/sell it to me. I especially need a case + maneul for melee.

FF 13-2 is currently on sale for $30 new/$28 used so that's why the TIV was cut in 1/2. Like MW3, it will go back up next Wednesday.

Nice way to save face. Will you hit him with the people's elbow or rock bottom after you trade with them?

Noob question here:

Does the 30% hardware bonus stack with the $50 bonus coupon?

Just ask for the LA Noire Skin for PS3/360, it's only 99 cents if you want to get 30 percent plus another 10 from your GS card. Traded in BF3, 16 and got 21 minus the DLC so I got it for 20. Better 20 than the 10 Amazon was offering. So just ask for a LA Noire skin, only 99 cents to get 30 percent more for your trade ins.

No, but with the coupon you get $30 more than with the standard bonus

I think the only reason I still shop at Gamestop is because I keep randomly finding complete special editions of certain games.

I just picked up Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition...looks brand spanking new too. I'm a total sucker for steelbooks.

I know what you mean, the closest one to my house has SW: the force unleashed ultimate sith edition but the case is all dinged up and they want $50 for it. F*** THAT! I say to myself while secretly wanting it. :cry:

Was at my local store at closing and they were changing a lot of signs and posters. On the kiosk at the front where they advertise the trade in stuff, they were hanging a sign for the next tiered trade in promo. It says get an extra $10 for 3 games traded in, an extra $20 for 5 games traded in and an extra $35 for 7 games traded in. It said the base value had to be $3. Could be a good deal if you have 7 low value games.

hmm its been a while (more than a year?) since the $20 extra for 5 and $35 extra for 7. too bad i don't have many low value games to trade in. usually it's just the trade 3 for extra $10.

does anyone know if there's a 30% boost if trading in towards preorder of Diablo 3? and if so, can i still do it tomorrow (monday)

I don't know if there's a pre-order bonus, but I got an email saying there will be a 30% trade-in bonus for buying Diablo III, valid May 14-June 6. It doesn't sound like PUR is required. If you want more details, the deal will probably be listed in the trade-in page on the gamestop website tomorrow.

Workin on it
