ok so you don't actually get 10%.
the base for silent hill and smash bros were $20, and i have rewards pro. and i got 21. It functions as if there's two bonuses.

Same wiht Forza. I didn't get $35 (base)+3.50, i got 18 plus 17 bonus, plus 1.80-36.80.

a little disappointing, but i got near $80. also gonna rebuy forza on ebay for less than 25.

edit: BTW, i am so sick of them announcing how much you have on your power up rewards Card.
"HEY GUISE, THIS GUY HAS HUNDREDS OF CREDIT ON HIS CARD, DID U HEAR ME CLEARLY?"

Thanks for the confirmation, but I think a lot of us were thinking those values were not base values, but after-promo values.

Some of those values are really generous. It's so un-gamestop like. I imagine a lot of people will be trading in some of these games.

I'm not sure if this is for all Gamestops, but my local Gamestop had signs all over today declaring 50% bonus trade-in if you're buying used games. With games like the original Rock Band going for $0.99, this is a lot cheaper than using a ton of rewards points for the Powerup Rewards coupon...

PS-I'm sure this won't stack with the special Powerup bonus games list.

Just got back from mine.
The games on the list are automatically adjusted to their proper trade-in values.

Traded in several games and my old Xbox Arcade for a new Star Wars Xbox 360 w/ Kinect.

I know....I know...ok, you guys can stop laughing at any time.

I could not resist it any longer. Was only $150 after all the trade-ins.
Hopefully it's the last Xbox I have to buy before the next gen comes out.

Did you have those taken away? Or are you just telling us how many points you have?

I also had a random amount of points removed (around 6000). I sent off an email to them to see what's up.

Were the points that showed up actually from the promotion or just a Customer Support credit? If the latter you may end up getting both. I called earlier this week and they told me it would take 5 business days after the transaction. So we'll see after today.

I had 401 taken away but in previous 2 transactions had two 401 add-ons so guess they just fixed whatever glitch happened?

Might be having the same problem with points.

I had 20K before any of my trade ins, and now i barely have 20k.

and the powerups reward activity recorded my trade ins.

I'll wait and see. (you get power up points for trades in correct?)

2K + points gone. I was told, "A couple of months ago the system was giving bonus points when it shouldn't have. We just caught the mistake & deducted the points from people's accounts." Dirty Bastards! Now I'm 1800 points shy of the $25 off coupon.

I've only been a member for a month. Did they only happen then or has it been ongoing?

How much did they give for the 360 Arcade? Wired or wireless?

I'm still in the clear with my points, but I'll keep checking.

I did a huge trade-in today (12/7):

:360:
Forza Horizon - $18
Just Cause 2 - $9

:ps3:
Assassin's Creed 3 - $20 (still have to play through AC:B, and I can see this dropping to $15-$20 by the time I can play it)
Sly Collection - $11

Vita
Assassin's Creed: Liberation - $11 (cart-only from the $179.99 Amazon bundle, and it's an Ubisoft game, so I can wait to pick it up with box :D)

:wii:
Kirby's Return to Dreamland - $15
Mario Kart Wii - $11 (picked up at BBY with $10 off pre-owned @Gamer coupon)
Mario Party 9 - $14 (also bought at BBY with $25 off @Gamer coupon and $15 RZ cert.)

After all the bonuses applied, I wound up with $225.90 in total credit. :hot:

What's ironic is that I now have enough to cover a Deluxe Wii U, but I don't want one anytime soon. :lol:

I know you probably don't want to hear this but Gamestop sent out a list of titles that garner some decent trade-in credit for PUR members and almost all the games you traded in are on the list for higher TIV than what you got today: http://www.powerupre...YcjLTuhOYUwyA==

I would try to get your extra credit, if that's even possible.
