Can someone explain what this "buy a crossbow for $0.40 for some deal if you trade in 3 games" is? I am about to go and trade in 3 games today. And does it stack with this promotion?

The poster is most likely referring to Links Crossbow training for the Wii... Promos do not stack without an override. The best trade in promotion right now is get a bonus 50% (+10% of base for powerup members) when you buy something used. If they have the crossbow disc for 0.40 used you're out very little if there's nothing used you want right now.

I'm confused. 2 copies of Zombie U would cost $90 plus tax. If you traded both in to GS, you would get $80 credit.

Think its been pointed out like once every 5 pages


this applies to far too many posts...

I'm not going to search or read, so i'm just going to ask the question that was literally answered on the previous page, which was the 3rd or 4th or 5th time the same question had been asked and answered...


between this and the inevitable argument about flipping/hoarding/GS-banning, and we wonder why these threads are 40 pages long.

(and yes, i know i'm not helping, kthxbye)

K-mart has the sly collection on sale for $14.99. Scored it for $10 after $5 SYWR reward. Traded in for $25. Not too shabby!

Went on a "treasure" hunt all over my city this weekend visiting many places for this deal.

Came up with about $460 in trade in credit after 5 paid off pre-orders. With only about $140 in cash out of pocket, and $40 in BB credit.

My Gaming budget is good for two years at least.....Christmas came early! Thanks Cag

So I get more trade in value, but have to pay retail for new games? No thanks.


I hear you man even though I have a **** ton of store credit now because of this deal, I still don't want to use it to pay MSRP for a new game. It sucks that Gamestop doesn't price match any stores either [-(

If you think about how much you made in profit... are you really playing MSRP?

Here's hoping they don't drop the trade values before the date this is scheduled to end. Can't go until tomorrow and have a couple of games I could trade in.

Gamestop has some pretty good deals every so often. Just don't let the credit burn a hole in your pocket and you'll be good

So you do not have to have the original cases to trade-in? I really don't do trade-in that often with GS, but with the given credits on some of these games (Portal 2, etc.) I might as well cash in now.

Took 4 games that I had sitting around finished that I was never going to touch again and walked out with 5200 Microsoft points and 3 months of Hulu plus. Good enough for me. No need to flip anything, basically free in my book.

Edit: No original cases needed. Didn't have a case or book for Blitz the League 2 and they happily accepted it in a generic white clear case.

I just took the cover art out of the case for the Killzone Trilogy since it is marked "not for resale" but the discs aren't. Just to avoid any hassle.

why must gamestop do this to me. Thinking about trading in dead island, forza, tales of graces, and killzone and putting it towards a headset, but forza is just so fun.


Just buy yourself a cheap $10-20 Rocketfish headset. Works good enough. I've been using the same one for like 2 years.

Problem solved.

Thanks for that. One last thing. When trading in the controller do you have to include the charging cable? I just watched an unboxing video for the killzone controller bundle and it didnt include one, just the controller and the game.
