Did this not ring up as the $20?

apparently you can't combine two promotions at once. at least it didn't for me. basically, it only applies whichever promotion is the best for you.
My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

Isn't AC:Liberation $20 on its own?

The base value - which the system uses in Trade 3 Get $10 - is $11, while the value that the system gives PUR members is $20.

After I used the code of god of war saga, is it good for me to trade GameStop?


Generally any game that has online pass or dlc codes you can trade in to Gamestop or Best Buy or even Amazon without needing the codes.

Is the deadline 12/16? We still have two and half more days to finish the game and trade them in the last minutes when the GameStop closed on sunday?


Yes, although every once in a while Gamestop will lower the value of games or even remove them from the promotion.

Take the credit and run. You'll be able to get $37 for ACIII and $26.10 for Sly, you'll never get that much for them again.

If you really have to have Sly Collection then you should still trade it in with ACIII. You will get $63.10 for them, I'd be willing to bet alot that GS is going to have a b2g1 sale the weekend before Christmas and you can get Sly back plus two $40 or less games (Hitman: Absolution, XCOM, Resident Evil 6, Killzone Trilogy, and others) for $72.

I really think it would just be best to trade them both in and buy them again later. I think the prices will go down a bunch, especially ACIII.


damn thought it was $20! I have a sealed Sly Collection that I got last December. Need to find it and trade the disc in.

has anyone noticed any tiv nuked/tanked

I'm assuming you get full credit even if you trade in just the disc? Sorry I haven't trade in games incomplete games in 10+ years.

The last game I traded in with that Ico Collection + 50% trade in bonus was disc only and there was no charge. I personally haven't had any problems ever but I guess maybe my time is coming.

You should, as long as the disc isn't damaged (they'll check). I heard that they also take in disc-only games that came with PS3 bundles, so shouldn't be a problem.

Wait a second... I got rid of my Rock Band 3 for 360 since it was worth $15 and it makes more sense to me to just buy it on Games on Demand. Is the game hard to come by now or something?


The physical copies are presently out of print (and probably OOP in general, doubt it gets another run), which is why I held on to mine.

Silly question, but is this for even the free power up rewards members as well or do you need to have the $15 yearly thing with them? Thanks!

Thanks. I know it can be frustrating and am usually in your shoes when it comes to people asking the same question. But with 68 pages I did not have time to read through all that. Thanks for being a nice guy. :applause:

which is against their own policy of not requirin cases, hence why they sell you them without cases, inform them to see the policy, ask to speak to a manager, because as a former employee, LAZY employees would do this....they tried to do this to me recently and I asked him why he charged a refurb fee, and he said cause I didn't have the case, I informed him I bought this without a case from him and I am allowed to trade in without a case and he ended up returning it for me, even though it was past the 7 days (probably because he knew I knew what I was talking about and could get him in trouble) think about how many customers lose 3 dollars all over the nation?

your "nice guy" needs to be questioned....
it is frustrating when one does not even read the first post or read the couple sentences in the link...

With the announcement of the Hitman HD Collection, has Blood Money's TIV changed or is it still the same?

I traded in Forza Horizon for $36 something yesterday.

It's a fun game and all, but I'd definitely rather have the money than that game.

It's up to you.

But what I can tell you is that the trade in value will NEVER be higher than it is now. If you plan on trading it in, do it now.

i coulda been nicer and not said the little passive-aggro comment :) (if only the search function was a little bit more granular b/c now it's not as easy as it sounds...rumors of an improved website/forum...cheapy? ;)
and now i'm just adding to the clutter...lol glad to be a (mostly) nice guy.

Oh, thank you so much. I will be doing that later today.

If I traded most of my PS3 disc games I could get around $200, but not sure if there's anything I'd want. I could snag a 3DS, or a Kindle Fire. Hmm...

Dont get the 3ds since you can get a better deal for them at target/bestbuy.

I'm fucking pist off at the gamestop dipshit that told me I was not able to use this trade in offer without being a power-up PRO member. He insisted that the the free membership would not allow it but since I am trading in all theses games it would be benefit me since it was like getting the PRO membership for free. I finally gave in figuring I misread something. Oh well I guess I proper fucked by the system. Fucking Jackass!!!

I'm having this dilemma as well. I already have $100 credit from trading in my fat launch 360 and another $60 worth of games I am going to trade in. Just have a huge backlog and would rather have BB or Amazon credit as I don't usually see as good of deals here. Perhaps I will get in on the next B2G1 and come up with some flips.

Would rather get something I would keep with the credit, but seems everything I want is a better deal somewhere else.
