Wanna know what a dumb employe asked me when I traded in mass effect 3.
Did you use the online pass. I'm like what does it matter not like I'm gonna get more if I didn't. So either he wanted it or they were gonna sell it as new either way GameStop is messed up.
And that's why I only use GameStop when I flip stuff or make money.

Sometimes I think people forget that employees at these stores aren't in a cult, its just a job. I imagine there are CAG's everywhere, and some might actually have one of these jobs. As you think these workers are idiots, dont you think some CAG's that work there are thinking customers are idiots? He might want to use that pass or sell it here lol.

u sound like a total douche to me lol. ur story does not prove that the gs employee is dumb whatsoever. if anything he was just probably being resourceful, maybe if you used the online pass he could just take it out of the case so the next customer knows what he is or isnt geting..maybe that? or maybe he wants an op he can use or for a friend, wouldnt you wanna do that if you were in his position? whats wrong with that? lol u really think u are using gamestop? they buy ur crap on the cheap and flip it on consumers, they make more profit then u did.

btw im glad there are flippers like u...fatten my pockets...**gamestop investor here, invested at 14, now at 22, now thats a flip**

If that was going to be the store's only copy of ME 3 then maybe they wanted to make sure it was working, or the employee wanted to check out the game and needed a valid online pass to play the MP. Only valid excuses I can think of.

Maybe they were being friendly and just chit chatting. Its got to be pretty dull standing behind the counter and talking to soccer moms and nose pickers all day.

No need to create conspiracy theories. I am sure he was just trying to be thoughtful and was going to throw it out if it was used so the next customer didn't think it might work. I am sure that if he wanted/needed an extra pass for himself he would have gotten it by now without asking.

It was supposed to end Sunday, October 14. The link is still up on the PUR site though. May still be in the system. Give it a shot and let us know.

Does anyone know if the 100% values apply to tablets as well or is it just video game hardware?

Just hardware. Tablets/iPods aren't considered a console.

An update. I traded in a Phat Ps2 today and it came out to $36 with the double credit but they took $8 off because the disc drive was messed up (didn't test it before I brought it in but whatever) so the base is still $18 and the double credit still works!

base TIV

xbox Inversion $10
xbox Ridge Racer Unbounded $10
xbox Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary $15

I only traded in Halo CEA and bought a new game. For some reason i got a $5 bonus promo #13940. So with PUR the total TIV was $21.50, which was higher than last week's 50% bonus promo $20.80.

I know there will be a 50% bonus later this weekend but TIV may tank and I went ahead with the trade.

The base TIV for Halo CEA was only $13 last week.

Looks like it's a new promo with some different titles added. Ends 10/21

...although if 50% then those values don't add up???

Ordered Black Ops for the Wii and Alice Madness returns on gohastings. If they can get here in time, its 15+ dollar profit so worth a shot.

No, but you can use 2 of the same coupon in the same transaction. However, you can use 2 different $xx off coupons in the same transaction. Percentage off coupons do not stack, it will give you whichever is higher.

IE. You can use a $10 and a $5 off coupon together, but you can not use 2 $10 off coupons.
