Yes you can. You just don't get the extra 10%.

I got UFC Undisputed 3 for $15 on BF from Amazon. I was planning on keeping it even though I could sell it for $20 because I do want to play it. Then I realized that I could just take the online code out of it and trade it in now for a small profit. Ill buy it back later once the price drops some more (which we all know it will be $10 soon). The only reason I bought it new was for the online pass so I could platinum it at some point.

UFC Undisputed 3 is a hell of a lot better than Undisputed 2010.

They have the ability to see your most recent transactions, it's nothing new. Some employees just don't bother bringing it up. Most managers tell their minimum wage slaves to look at that when suggesting preorders or trying to get the customer to reup their Pro card.

I thought it was discussed here that the last 5 purchases come up and not the trade-ins. The recent purchase history prompt has been like that for a couple of years at least but not the trade-ins unless i've been misinformed this whole time.

Is there a difference between Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat Komplete? In the used trade in perspective. I picked up a copy of the regular game for pretty cheap and was tempted to get another copy and trade this one in.

Anyone know what the current trade value is for an Xbox 360 system? it's about a 2 year old white one with a 250 gb hard drive i bought. Are they still offering an extra $50?

hmm. so this promotion does not stack with the 50% extra credit for PULSE headset?

I was under the impression that these increases were standard prices but it appears that they're considered a promotion. I tried to trade in MGS Collection, Assassin's Creed Vita, and NFS:MW Vita for Far Cry 3 thinking I could get an extra 30%, but the guy behind the counter with a double-chin beard said it wouldn't stack the deals.

I figure since FC3 is a Ubisoft game it'll be $40 in the next few weeks so I just took the $63 as saved credit.

there's 50% TIV boost regardless of buying a headset. You do have to buy something preowned though, so you better find Madden 2004 for the ps2 asap!!

And no, promo's dont stack, unless your Velo or his friend.

don't quite get you.
so using this current TIV promotion does not work with the 50% TIV boost on buying a headset.

what's the bit about buying something preowned

Just did a trade in and they scanned my ID and said it was so they could track theft by making sure people weren't trading in too many multiples of copies.

Remember that if you do trade in GoW Saga, two of the games are on a DLC voucher, so make sure to pull it out.

till the 15th there's a 50% TIV boost when you buying anything preowned. Promo's never stack though, so its one or the other

No it's b/c St. Louis County now requires ID on any trade/pawn regardless if its for store credit or cash and it's to help track down merchandise that has been stolen to get cash and the person who stole it.

So you guys actually paid to join Powerup Rewards?

edit- i guess its not so bad since it includes a yr sub to Gameinformer. I never buy used at GS though or shop there altogether.

What are everyones impressions of the program?


Mine was free (cashier screwed something up and the manager said "enjoy the free membership"). Only had it 2 months now. I shop at gamestop maybe 3 times a year, don't flip, and keep all my games. I don't think I'll be getting much out of the program, though I do enjoy the magazine next to the toilet

Edit: yes it's pur pro before someone says something stupid

Komplete has all the DLC characters and compatibility patches on the disc.

I'm pretty sure if they dig in their system they can look up trade ins, but on the main page when they swipe your card it only shows the last six purchases.
