I would like to introduce you two. I think you will hit it off wonderfully. Just call me the matchmaker.



Well controllers both worked. The buttons were just kinda "squishy" for lack of a better term. They are more than serviceable. That is what a USED product is. It isn't fucking new. It has been used. Hence the designation.

so I don't know how to quote all three people that helped me, so MSUHitman sasukekun xenozfan2, thanks. I called the store asking if they had any positions open and the girl said apply online, again I looked online, these managers positions. I'm going to fill out the online pdf application anyways and just give it to them.

Well, technically you could get the bonus from trading towards an already-placed preorder, so there's that.

I was looking at picking up a used copy of NHL 13, do they include online passes for your purchase or do you have to drop the extra $10 on top of it?

Only WB and Sony games get free online passes w/used purchase at GS. If you want the online pass for an EA game, buy it new or cough up $10 more.

Well you get 30% right now if you preorder. Plus 4000 points gets you $5 off a used product. So it's only really worth it if you do something like at least a ~$25+ trade in.

Terrible deal considering they just had a 50% bonus.

Each point is worth about 10% of a penny so for about $3.50 worth of points, its a good deal if your wanting to trade in right now.

GS is really trying to push more 50% trade ins. Last year, I remember only getting it once at the GS around me. I guess we have to thank BB for the competitive trade in prices :D

10 for basic and 20 for pur?
I think that's what it said as I quickly glanced at the brochure.

parkerwilson was talking about if you converted PUR points to cash. If that what you were asking, then you have your answer. If you mean how many points you get per dollar spent at GS, it goes:

10 points per dollar spent on all new games and consoles
20 points per dollar spent on pre-owned games, accessories and consoles
20 points per dollar on traded-in games or consoles

So the thing with the steal of the week is depending on your trade it is a great deal. If you trade $110 (base) worth of stuff ($175 after bonus) you would get back the 3,500 points plus it is an extra $22 in trade. You can work back from there if you want.

$82.50 (base) gets you 2625 + $16.50
$55.00 (base) gets you 1750 + $11.00
$27.50 (base) gets you 825 + $5.50

Obviously the more you trade the better it is. Trade more than $110 and it pays for itself back in points.

I wonder if the coupon can be used multiple times until Sept 30th?

Edit: I see you have to put it towards a pre-order which makes it a little more of a pain.

There used to be reports of clerks pulling out a tape measure to make sure they were a full 3ft long, and being denied, because even though it was sold as a 3ft cable, it only measured 32 inches. Granted, that may have been a year ago at this point, so take it with a grain of salt. :whee:

Nope. Although, it should stack if you have a different $ off coupon, like a $5 or $25.

this is probably a newb question but I never really paid attention to this portion but does the 10% Pro trade-in work with apple products?

It would be sweet if I could get the 30% trade-in promo they have right now with another 10% on top of it.
