weird about the GRFS 30% not being at your local. I stopped by mine last night, and they still had the big signs up advertising it. the 5/$20 deal was better for me than the 30%, but i'm pretty sure it was still active (given the signage)

Yeah, even called another store and they were having it.

The funny part is this store had the most GRFS pre-orders in the district. Maybe they cut them off from the promo because they were losing too much? XD

What's the deal with dragon age origins? I saw high base TIV like this post a while back. I traded it in during the 50% promo and got $2 for mine. Was it the ultimate Ed you traded?

Fluctuating values maybe? Star Ocean Last Hope appears to have went up too. Noticed it in some past deals too, games would be marked with 3 or 4 TIV's from a few weeks before, yet i'd get 8$+ instore for them.

Looks like I'm gonna trade in to Gamestop for the first time in over 18 months. 7/$35 is pretty awesome for a lot of these titles I have with a low value. Should be able to average 10 bucks per game.

so is the minimum value for the 7/35 $2 or $3?

Seems to be $2 as long as you trade in 7 games exactly. If u have more, leave them in the car and go get them after the 1st transaction.

Website and scan code at GameStop says $3, however the system will accept $2 as the minimum.

So am I literally the only one who had the $5 requirement placed on them? Has anyone else looked at their flyer in store? I should take a photo of it, i still have it. It clearly says $35 bonus has a $5 minimum TIV.

Anybody else see a bunch of used camouflage dual shock 3 controllers? I saw a store with 3used ones that all look unused. I was hoping they were some kind of used conversion. This has been one of the best promos in a long time. My closet and wallet (gs card ) are happy. I had paid in cash during the last b2g1 sale which hadn't happened in years.

Try Leaptrade.com, it's pretty good! - tinyurl.com/pf5rqp3

You can't just go in with 14 games and tell them you splitting transactions?

I went in with 21 games and I had to do 3 separate transactions. The system did 7/35, then 4/20, then 3/10. Couldnt get it to work with all in the same transaction.

Lol, the guy I traded in to was pretty angry at me since I didn't want to reserve anything. Gave me an "are you stupid" look when I told him I did no want to reserve Arkham City GOTY because I get the super awesome Live avatar batman suit. But otherwise, the transaction went smooth. He did slap a refurb fee on Lost Odyssey for .75 and neglected to tell me and when I asked he said one of the discs was scratched up.

Anyways, here is base and in parentheses promo + 10% for powerup.

:3ds: Sims 3: Pets - $5.50 (11.05)
:360: Crysis 2 - 7.50 (13.25)
:360: Lost Odyssey - 2.00 (7.20)
:360: LA Noire Complete - 12.00 (18.20)
:360: FFXIII - 5.00 (10.50)
:360: Castlevania: LoS - 4.50 (9.95)
:ps3: Batman: AA - 6.00 (11.60)

Total: 81.00

Not too bad, got MGS:HD Collector's for $50 from another gamestop.

Some stores might not let you do multiple transactions if u have all the games in the store at once if u don't preorder or buy a PUR Pro card b/c that will hurt the employees numbers.

Oh shit thats probably why the guy didn't want to do multiple transactions.. Better looking to have everything on one. Got suckered. Guess that's the usual at GameStop.

I thought games with values under 3 bucks were excluded? Glitch?

Ugh ignore me, i just read back. This deal is sick since it applies to 2 dollar games.

Apparently $2 is the lowest value needed to trigger the promotion, not $3.

This really pisses me off. Whoever came up with the system that punishes the clerk for making the customer happy ought to be slapped. What is the point of making 14 trades at once vs. 7 in 2 seperate transactions have any sort of "numbers" meaning? :roll: It just sounds like one of those stupid things someone in a suit came up with.

I guess it is preorders per transaction or some such nonsense. Idiotic...

I did get somewhat hosed by a clerk the other day but it was an accident. Of course I still had like 41 days left on my PUR so I didn't want to renew it yet - mostly because I don't want the B2G1 coupon until the last possible minute since they don't last that long (as discussed earlier). But the guy apparently hit 'yes' when I said 'no'. They were going to undo it but apparently that required redoing the entire transaction and it took long enough for him to get through the 7 games and I didn't have any more time. So I just said to forget it and do the renewal. I was slightly annoyed only because of the coupon. Though even then I didn't know it was just like 2 months. I would have definitely waited till June to get it if I knew that.

It was also my intention to "reward" one of the better clerks with my PUR renewal. Now I ended up giving it to some incompetant newbie dufus who I've never seen before. So that kind of sucks too ;).
