Wow, I went in yesterday to do some trades and was pleasantly surprised. Some of the games I traded in gave me more value than I paid for years ago. I traded about 26 games and walked out with $270 worth of credit (that's including the promotions). The newest game in the batch was left 4 Dead 2 which added over $25 credit (again, that's with the bonuses included).

And of course thanks to CAG and SD, I never paid full price for those games to begin with >< I was just hoping to get more than a buck or two for each one.


Are you intending to list the base prices for the games you traded in so that they can be updated in the OP?

question: is the GS system smart/nice enough to give you the best B2G1 discount?

for example, if I am gonna buy 3x $10 games and 3x $5 games, would it take off one $10 and one $5 games, or 2x $5 games?


it can even do B2G2 deals correctly.

Does anyone know if the b&m stores sell the nexus or is it just online for gamestop?


Stores are sold out through the 3rd or 4th shipment. You just have to put down $50 & get in line.

Most if not all stores have stopped taking pre-orders of the Nexus 7.

Nexus 7 taken out of the pre-order system. Checked a few days ago.

Here's my list:

Kirby Epic Yarn (Like you said)
Dead Space: Extraction
A couple of the Rabbids games
Metroid Other M (another one you stated)

There really isnt much, cause like I said everything good is 17.99 or higher.

I dunno, there might be some gems that I left out. Good luck to all.


Some other Wii games under $15 ones to consider:

Madworld $4.99
Metroid Prime 3 $7.99
Muramasa $12.99
Deadly Creatures $14.99
Cursed Mountain $12.99

You wouldn't have got much either way. All Gears games have a low trade in value.

If you didn't already see it, read about the Amazon TIV of those games in the Newegg GOW Saga thread. Might make it worth it.

So wait there was a 50% bonus over the weekend? If so that sucks I was on a mini-vacation 8o(.

I was actually just getting on here to check if people knew when another good TiV deal was going to happen since the current 25% (or 35% PuR) is pretty crappy compared to BB's 50%. Got a bunch of stuff I want to unload soon (mostly older PS3 stuff) and I'm looking at $90 at BB, was hoping for a better deal someplace (just under $80 at Amazon).

Unless you really wanted the new case, there was really no reason to do it. You would have got about $20 in trade leaving you with $20 to still "upgrade" day 1. The Saga Collection is still going to have 2 discs and Origins is download voucher only, which may suit some people, but most of us on here, I think, prefer the physical copies as we actually own them and can trade them down the road. You should be able to get Origins for around that $20 price without too much effort.

I was totally thinking the same thing as I thought Sony might actually put the games all on 1 disc as a super Collection, after word came out it was 2 discs and voucher though, meh.

Kind of assumed if you were going to trade things in to GS then you would like likely buy at GS .

Yeah, that is probably the correct line of thought. I was just making people aware of other options. The deal is dead now anyway.

So why the hell is Origins download codes when they're doing a 2nd disk for 1 and 2 anyway? 1 and 2 don't take up 50 GB.

Yes, I do--the promotion details specify that you can only get $30 guaranteed credit when a new copy of NCAA '13 is priced at $59.99. A new copy is currently $49.99, so technically the promotion isn't active, I suppose.

The NCAA sale should end today so it should work tomorrow.

Unless they changed the system, the computer should've/would've given him the guaranteed $30. So many people bought it and traded it back in last week when it was on sale AND half price. The way he worded his post it sounds like the GS rep just told him no and didn't proceed with the trade-in.

Hmm, good point. I don't know what to make of it, then. :???:

Saying my points are about to expire

When i shop with them constantly. I have over 100,000 lifetime points.
