So these B2G1's and 50% extra deals are generally for gamestops that are located next to a Best Buy right?

So its limited? For whatever reason, no stores around me ever seem to run these limited promotions (South Jersey)

yes, but it's also done by district. So a store that's far(relatively speaking) may still get it since it's the closest to the BB. But there's no way to know w/o calling or seeing the signs even other GS stores told me they weren't doing b2g1 until I showed them receipt from the same day.

So its limited? For whatever reason, no stores around me ever seem to run these limited promotions (South Jersey)

Where are you at? I deliver in Princeton, E. Windsor, W. Windsor, Bordentown, Lawrenceville, Hamilton & Trenton. The only store that I know that's is doing it is the W. Windsor GS on Nassua Park Blvd. Even though the Quakerbridge mall is like 2 miles away they aren't doing these but at least it isn't that far to go for a return/rebuy.

So is the 60% trade in this weekend corporate wide or is it limited to select gamestops that they send out emails for? I hope it is not the latter because we never get b2g1free even though a couple of gamestops are near best buys.

It should only be the select stores. Don't totally rely on getting an email from a participating store. My closest store has had theses promos ever weekend, but I only get the email every other week. Call and bug them every Friday.

If I do this at one store, and get store credit, could I use that store credit at another store?

As long as that other store is a GameStop, yes.

Yep, if you know the store(s) that are doing it they're BB competition stores so it will go on every weekend thru yrs end. Also, be sure to stack next weeks(or the week after) b2g1 w/20% off(30% PUR) steal of the week coupon.

Quick question:
Right now you can trade in a Dualshock 3 for $27.50 so if I wait until Friday I can get $41.25 correct? Or do they lower the trade in prices during a deal like Best Buy did? Hopefully this doesn't sound too retarded I'm tired as hell lol

B/C it's limited stores the TIV will most likely hold so $41.25

B2G1 first for sure, I believe 10% PUR & finally 20%. I don't have the receipt from 6 weeks ago in front of me but I'll find it.

FYI, the TIV for Dualshock 3 went down to $24.75 last week.

Also, I thought the 50% bonus was just for games. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, really. Must have changed on Friday. I bought 3 on the B2G1 and traded them right back in with the 30% promo. Only makes ~$18 now. Was a killer when the DS3s still traded in for $30 base.

Does this 50% bonus work on accessories too. Or is it just for game trade-ins?

Does anyone know if this 50% bonus will stack on top of the special trade-in values they're giving right now?

No it's one or the other.

I'm starting to worry if trading in the games on the list will give that special bonus value instead of the 50% at these stores. Like the special values on the list are hard coded to these games and no other promo can override it.

It shouldn't. I got over $30 for a game on the 2 for $40 list last week because the computer overrode the 2 for $40 with the tiered deal as it was worth more that way.

That's kind of what I meant but it would work against us that way. I seen where last week folks had 2 games on the 2 for $40 but the special 50% was paid on the game on the PUR list and the other game still got the $20. If the PUR list knocks out all other promos then it would be worst than 50% for some games.

The computer will always give you the best deal possible. Whatever promos apply, the one that gives you the most for will be the one that applies.

Are they going to send an email for this? I got an email in the past for a store near a Bestbuy doing B2G1.

Don't rely on getting an email. My GS has had a promo every weekend, but I only get emails every other weekend.
