I traded some stuff in earlier heres the values I got for it all

TD Unlimted 2- $7.80
Halo Reach- $19.50
Halo CE Anniversary- $19.50
Crackdown 2- $5.20
Borderlands 1- $11.70
Juiced 2- $4.55
Red Dead Redemption- $10.40
Mindjack- $.97
Deus Ex Human Revolution- $6.50
LA Noire- $6.50
Race Pro- $1.30
Darkness 2- $5.85

I meant to also bring in ME3 but forgot it

totaling $99.77, the associate made me get a power up pro membership so that gave me an extra $17 which paid for itself. but I got Forza Horizon with the rest and whatever was left after that I put towards a Halo 4 preorder. just gotta go back during the week and pay the rest of it off

Those are after-promotions values; could you post the base values?

He may be saying the same thing but, I know at least at my Gamestop, they'd tell you "no it ends on the 28th so you can't do it today".

...and you guys just live with that? I'd be giving the DM and/or corporate a call. Those employees need some re-training.

I want to get Assassins Creed 3, i have F1-2012 to trade in alogn with Borderlands 2. They get $40 with that deal but Borderlands 2 is $25 so 10% extra is $27 and i don't know what F1-2012 gets...does anybody know? Probably get more separately then that deal.


If you trade those 2 games to BBY you can get $72 after the 100% bonus, more than enough to get AC3. Just an FYI.

Really? How do I go about doing that? They still have the 100%? wow

Just go to BBuy and trade in. Joining reward zone unlocked isnt a bad idea either.

There is also a $50 bonus on 360s ans PS3s so it was the better deal for that model.

sorry for the rant. Long story short, some GS won't give you the tier trade in offer unless you reserve a upcoming release.


Here's what may have happened - Despite another poster claiming that if they just traded in your games, the computer would have automatically given you the 30%, and then the GS employee would be proven wrong, the employee could have done a sneaky little trick... The employee can key the register, very easily, to disable automatic promotions, like the tiered trade. This is meant to be used for cash trades, in which a customer receiving cash for their games isn't eligable for any bonuses. But instead, whenever ANY trade customer comes to the register, the employee disables trade promos, then tells the customer - "Hey if you put $5 on Black Ops, you'll get a lot more for your trades!" or "Hey, if you buy or renew your powerup card, you'll get a lot more for your trades!" Most customers say - "No thanks," Then the employee says "Here, look!" - showing the customer their current trade value, then ringing up a $5 Black Ops preorder, and then pressing a key to allow promos, so the customer will see their trade value magically jump up 30% or whatever the value is, even though the 30% bonus had nothing to do with the preorder.

Well today when I returned the refurb psp he gave me attitude. He said there was nothing wrong with it. I said look at the big dust blotches under the screen and the warped part on the right hand side. He said fine in a sarcastic voice and asked if I wanted anything else. I said yes I wanted a new psp. He *****ed saying you know they are going to stop making them. I said in a sarcastic manner duh that is why I want a brand new one now. I traded in some games with that wasonly worth $25.5. $35.5 after the $10 FB coupon. I got a new psp telling him to cancel my pre-order for black ops 2. He complained and said if I would trade in towards a pre-order I would get more. I told him no, and he called me a dumn ****(rhyms with luck). Fine take the lesser value.

When I got the psp and got out of there I did the math in my head. If I took the other promo I would have got $7.65. After reserve on a pre-order it would have been $2.65, where as the FB coupon gave me $10 credit. I got my justice by canceling a preorder, returning faulty merchandise, and getting a new psp. I would have reserved AC3 there cause my sister is picking her's up on tuesday there. but the guy was a total ***hole.

Dang man I got this one GameStop by me that the dude chased me out of the store when i was asking a question about halo reach i think. he just kept saying check the internet but it was something they should have known i thought. so i just said ok and turned around and walked out of the store and this thug cashier chased me put the store and just started yelling some stupid stuff. I called GameStop corporate and got a gift card should have pressed for alot more now that i think about it. Never been back to that store sine one time about 4 months ago I went there cause they were the closest store to me that had a screen protector for my new wifi only vita and the dumb*** was trying to tell me the 3G vita can make phone calls.

Got back from Gamestop and realized they rang my Borderlands GOTY trade-in up as the vanilla edition, and too late to head back. I hate standing there checking the price details out in front of the employee like I'm double-checking their work, but I guess I'm forced to now.

Prices:

Borderlands (360) - $9
Portal 2 (PS3) - $13.50
Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) - $17

Traded 10 games for $107 with the tiered promo and PUR. Thanks to CAG and being a cheapass in general that is a $2 profit on my original purchases. The guys at my EBgames are pretty chill and always cool with me gaming the system. Sucks that some of you have crap service.

Much love to CAG for helping me be a true cheapass :D

So I'm a dumbass and missed out on the 100% HW bonus, has there been any word of another HW bonus of any kind popping up next? (Looking to trade a 3DS XL probably)
