Best Buy really does suck 90 percent of the time.

Can anyone confirm the legitimacy of this? If anything, those look like trade in prices more than sale prices.

I'm thinking the same thing. Especially because of this: $20- God of War Saga (or $10 for Origins, $10 for 1&2) I guess we'll see soon enough.

But that 10% has pretty much kicked every other retailer's butt this past year. Best Buy has consistently had the best overall deals the past year. Part of the reason I know this is that GameStop has actually been forced to up its offers. If you can make GS actually have decent sales and trades you are doing something right.

Argh, rage. I do my best to avoid gamestop but I'm finally breaking down and wanting to buy a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles. I have PUR points from way back when and went to cash them out but their 5 or 10 dollar off any purchase coupons are now gone. They only have the 5 or 10 dollars of pre-owned coupons left. >_< I swore I saw them still there a week or two ago. Did this just happen? I shouldn't have waited, blah....

Hey guys I have a question. Do I need to have my Drivers license to trade in games or can I use my school id? I recently lost my Drivers license but I was hoping to trade in for the 50% thing.

New Years backlog completed: 57/100

My guess would be to try back after the HD Collection sale.

I'd like to get this price matched at BestBuy tomorrow, is there an ad for this sale? I haven't been able to find anything online, just these rumors on various gaming sites.

Apparently you need a coupon that shows up in your Active Offers under your PUR account to get the 50% off (I got one), so the chance of PMing this at BBY just became YMMV, I think. :-#

Incase anyone hasn't heard yet, Gamestop is offering free value shipping (5-7 business days) to web orders placed in stores. You can get faster shipping at an additional cost. So pretty much anything offered/sold by GS can be ordered in store and shipped to your house.

///edit///
GTA5 pre-orders also start tomorrow. First 100 pre-orders get a poster.

My thoughts exactly. Should I risk buying a Visa card at BB instead? I remember lots of people thinking they got the banhammer for that reason.

You should be fine. If that is actually the case it was most likely because they traded and then walked over to the Visa cards and bought on right away. I have bought 3 and no ban for me. The ban situation is so random that when it happens I am not sure anyone really knows why.

Could you use in-store coupons/offers when purchasing this way?

Do you mean Thursday or Friday? I thought it said Preordering would start the 5th.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

So question: It seems like the Gamestop website states that the 30% trade-in bonus applies towards hardware, but it's not wholly specific about it. Is that the case? Thanks.

If I miss these trade-in deals on a 3DS for the XL, do you think I'm out of luck post-Nov. 4? Any idea if this deal will be extended/re-upped shortly after?

Depends on your store

I tried to trade in a PS3 controller + 360 controller + 360 play & charge kit early Oct at a GS near me and they told me games only (he showed me the promo code sheet that they scan and it only said games on there). I went to another GS and they didn't have a problem with it -- got about $77 with 30% + 10% PUR, applied $60 to a preorder, put $17 on a trade card

Per SquareTriangle at GAF:

Sale and Trade In offer on Sony HD collections from 11/1 thru 11/14


50% trade in bonus on any trades toward the purchase of these collections.

$10 - Ico & Shadow Colossus Collection
$10 - Jak and Daxter Collection
$15 - Uncharted 1 & 2 Pack
$15 - Infamous 1 & 2 Pack

$15 - Ratchet and Clank Collection
$20 - Killzone Trilogy
$20- God of War Saga (or $10 for Origins, $10 for 1&2)


Not seeing these sale prices on the website. In-store only? Is it a late start? I was actually refreshing my cart with a few of these around midnight and gave up.

You might want to check this thread. It is a coupon only certain people have gotten.

Thanks, did not see that thread at all yesterday when I was trying to find out more about it. Those prices did seem too good to be true. No coupon in my PUR Active Offers so I guess I'll keep waiting.

It worked for me. I traded PS3 dualshock, nav con and memory stick and got 40% bonus (w/ 10% PUR). Heres the link that confirms it http://www.gamestop....0-trade-credit/

fyi: its seems GameStop removed the PUR rewards coupons for new merchandise. weird and lame.

i'm a PUR Pro member and didn't get any PS3 collection coupon. Neither the sale price or the 50% trade credit towards said games. also lame.

FWIW, the coupon doesn't mention the 50% bonus credit towards those collections at all, so that might not require a coupon.

:360: Mortal Kombat Komplete - $8
:ps3: Mortal Kombat Komplete - $8


And thanks to the CAG that pointed out that the 2-for-$40 promo was still ringing up automatically. Took a gamble and bought a used PS3 MKK for $19 during the GS sale to trade-in along with the 360 version I already had. Netted $20.80 each after promo...

Here's the list.

Ah, I actually mean backwards. Meaning I'm trading in a bunch of games towards a console purchase.

I'm going to guess the answer is nada.
