Someone mentioned Sly Collection is $14.99 at Kmart. Is this true? Last time I checked they were labeled $29.99 but we all know how Kmart is.

That's where I went to research and ended up with some lovely Audi technicas. Only spent $130


I did the exact same thing! I remember having arguments with a friend of mine that was determined to save up for Beats wireless headphones despite there being superior performing headphones for way less. This is also the same friend that can't go past the Apple store without stopping in.

Holy crap! I had no idea Monster made beats headphones. Now it makes sense why those pieces of crap are overpriced and marketed to morons.

(no offense to morons.)


If you want a good pair of on-ears, get some sennheisers, v-moda m-80's or beyerdynamic dt 1350. I personally have sennheiser amperiors and I love them.

I wonder if Monopoly Streets for PS3 trades in for that much too. That game tends to hold its value for some reason.

I think they are great quality and they look great too. Not to mention that spending 100$ or so on flips during this great trade in promo to get a pair of these easily without spending 200$ plus tax is a no brainer for me :D


overpriced/ the only good part of the headphones is the bass which some people complain is too much after a while. you really could get better headphones at a cheaper price (example: ath-m50s for $99 when they're on sale), and bass is way overrated after you get more into audio.

Are there any decent flips? Thinking of loading up on credit for next gen (have to still trade in my Black Ops 2, 2K13, and SSBB), but not sure if there's even much else I should be looking for.

No. It's only the system that is listed that gets the bump.

For Rewards members... is that their paid membership? Probably not worth getting a $15 card to get $20 from a game, when I have no intentions of ever shopping there otherwise.

I picked up a free copy of Alice Madness Returns somewhere but can't seem to find a pass from anyone to play the first, so I might as well turn it over and get the game new. But if I'm only getting $5 from it, I'd rather just have cash.


depends,

for alot of cags such as myself the $15 pays for itself with trade ins/discounts on pre owned games very quickly. (buying stuff on sale, using trade promotions).

the game informer subscription, I like it, is a bit of a bonus. but I renewed in August this year, and it paid for itself by September. Plus with the credit, you can at the very least get the next gen consoles in 2013 if you're continually saving up. That's what I plan to do if I don't blow it on a tablet.

Why would you own a game you'll never play? That said, why wouldn't you to want play Sly?!?!

How about instead of people asking every day if the value of X went down, click on the link in the OP:

These exclusive values are only guaranteed until December 16.**


I would assume that these TIVs will be around for another 6 days.

I traded in Cod:BO2 360, Portal 2 360, and Wipeout:In the Zone 360 today and they were all good, the link clearly says Dec. 16th so I'd guess these are still good through Sunday.

Didn't gamestop nuke some of the TIV of games last time they had a trade in promo like this before they ended the promo?

People are asking because Gamestop has had this same exact promotion before where it was written explicitly that the values were guaranteed until so-and-so date but dropped anyway prior to that date.

U pick up the Beats Solo's, Studios, Pro's, or the in ear buds? I got a pair of Beats Studios last year for my birthday and I love them. Only issue I have with them is they leak music if you are playing your music too loud

If you have a blockbuster you may want to check there, they're having a sale where all games $19.99 and under are half off. I believe that sale ends today.

I ran to my blockbuster and they had nothing worth flipping. I was really hoping to get $50 in credit for Black Ops 2 on wii-u. Oh well, I'll just keep my eyes open.

Monster has nothing to do with the pricing or marketing, they only make the headphones, since 2009. HTC is the majority owner of Beats. Monster no longer makes the headphones, the partnership ended this year.

Also I think it's hilarious all the people in here ripping on Beats headphones and telling him he's making a terrible purchase. Maybe they aren't the best headphones, but they are still very good and have brand name appeal. Same reason people buy Apple products. If he really wants to buy them, why do you care so much? It's not your money.

Picked up Rock Band 3 360 at BBV for $5 and the $15 is still the value. Used BBY credit to pick up the ds3/Kz trilogy for $40 and traded an older ds3 and kz trilogy ($25 was still good).
Also
Fifa 13 $35 ps3
Mass Effect collection $30 360
Madden 13 $20 vita

I now have $238 in credit. May get a Wii-U deluxe after some more flips.

Then click on the link. If the promo is there, it's still not "cancelled."

People are asking because Gamestop has had this same exact promotion before where it was written explicitly that the values were guaranteed until so-and-so date but dropped anyway prior to that date.


IIRC, the last time that happened, all traces of promo disappeared from the website too.
