I know some of you have been moving credit around for quite some time so I'm wondering, in the past, has Gamestop followed this trade in promotion with a b2g1f sale?

Are you sure? When I asked for quotes on both that and the original DR2 for :360: three days ago, I was told $8 for DR2 and $7 for DR2: OtR. :???: Did it rise $1 already?

My fault, you're correct. I asked the lady before I left the tiv for DR2 after I had just traded OTR.

Walked out of GS with my best haul to date. I traded in:

Unit 13 - $15
Wipeout 2048 (Vita) - $14
AC2 :360: - $4
Red Dead Redemption :360: - $9
Forza 4 (2 disc) - $21
Kirby's Epic Yarn - $5
DK Country Returns - $20
New Super Mario Bros. Wii - $20
Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time - $6
MLB 12: The Show - $22
Rayman Origins :ps3: - $12
2 :360: Wireless Controllers - $16

After the PuR bonus and the bonus for trading in 7 games, I ended up with a credit of $243 dollars and change. I then turned that into an Aqua Blue 3DS, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario Land 3D, and the 3DS starter kit for just under $40 after tax. Score one for the good guys.

I have infamous 2 from collectors edition, will they accept the game even if it says not for resale on the box? thanks

also, does hardware count for trade in? i have a old 20gb xbox hard drive, wonder how much i can get for that.

You can just take the Infamous 2 disc out of the box and trade it in by itself; you'll get the same value (unless it's scratched up, in which case you'll be hit with refurbishing fees).

Gamestop cares not for "not for resale" on the box, employee just has to look up the game manually.

Those labels are so someone doesn't buy the CE, take all the goodies, then return the game by itself since it would still be sealed.

They cap you at 1G. After $1000 your card cannot take any more credit and the transaction will get declined unless it is put on another trade credit card

boxes of games? seriously thats alot of just boxes lieing around to random decide to trade in granted im sure back when i was younger and used to trade in crap all the time ive amassed tons of gamestop credit but never all at once.

this begs the question how in the hell do you get THAT much credit anywhere????

It's the same people who enter threads and say ''I have too big of a backlog but I'm gonna buy the game anyways'' and never play it

im not sure how that fits. trading in games to get that much credit requires a lot of trading and pre calculating as just blindly trading stuff in to gamestop will rob you blind.

buying and adding to backlog is illogical sure. but its not quite the same as racking up 1000 dollars in credit somewhere.

I buy all my games through amazon and sell to gamestop when they have deals like this and have close to $800 credit.

perhaps but you still have to look for the best price no? and make sure the game will sell to gamestop for at least 2 dollars for the promo???

or is there is a quick and easy way to do this i am not aware of???

#2159 elessar123  

Posted 23 May 2012 - 01:59 PM

I think he just means all the games he buys at Amazon, he traded to Gamestop. I'm not sure he meant he was flipping anything.

Took 21 games in today to trade in, but 1 of 'em was $1.75 and clerk said he couldnt take it cause it has to be $2+ to be eligible for the $35 deal (7 games).

So I just traded in 14 and now home looking for a 7th game for the last bundle


Between yesterday and today I ended up with $577 credit...had to clean house lol


Im thru trading games in...I'm exhausted lol


So... were you going to share the base TIV for your trade-ins? Or, are you just going to be a leech?
