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...


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.

Submit feedback to the DM or whoever from the receipt.

What would that do? If you don't mind me asking?

Contemplating trading in NSMBU, Scribblenauts Unlimited (Wii U), and Assassin's Creed for PS3. I'd get at least $85. I finished Mario and SU and my AC installed a corrupted file. I haven't been able to play past the first checkpoint since I got it. I traded someone on here for it, so I couldn't really return it or anything.

Problem is, with Christmas just around the corner, I don't have any idea what to get. All the games I really want I'ved already asked for and likely receiving as gifts. Hmmm?

Went to go trade in Lego Batman 2 and got hit with a $4 refurb fee. There were no scratches on the disk, despite what the little twit working at the counter claimed. I said no thanks, and will take it to another Gamestop. The game still had a base of $20.

Leaving a scathing review, if written properly, will get you contacted by the DM and be reimbursed. GS takes the customer surveys super seriously as DM & SM bonuses are partly tied to them and each store is ranked on them weekly.

Don't know why the guy pressured you into a Pro card now, employees aren't ranked by PUR Pro currently but by how many items in a transaction and how much spent per transaction. Pro rankings will restart in Jan/Feb as they do each year.

You get ranked by how much a fucktwat customer buys/spends?
No wonder the employees are all asshats.

Were you trading in with original case & art? I've heard of a few gs stores charging refurb fees for games without cases no matter the condition of the game, YMMV of course.. (this was set in place by this area's upper mgmt) not necessarily the store/employee

After all done flipping I got a used vita using a power up coupon for $155. Persona 4 golden $40 and a used 8 gig for $25.

Used up all my credit and came out my pocket $14. Money spent in reality was about $120 lmao I was getting lucky at pawn shops and blockbuster.

Have you tried to delete and reinstall the game installation data?

Yeah, I've tried that. I've also tried rebuilding the database, all to no avail.

Ah Boo-urns. It sucks that you aren't able to play a great game because of a glitch. I'm sure you'll be able to pick up the game for cheap in the near future.

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.


Heck yeah. I'm hoping this price good through tomorrow, I'm just about at 1000 gs for the game and should be able to trade it in tomorrow. Not bad considering I got it black friday for $14.99. Please god just last one more day LOL.

Wish I had some other games on the list to trade in, but unfortunately I'm not quite done with them yet. Forza is a game that once I get the 1000 I will *never* go back to it, so better take whatever chance I can before it drops in value.

Do you get hit with refurb fees if you game doctor them?

Quick question for you guys, with the trade in values, I've got enough to get a tablet. Would you go with a Nexus or a Transformer? Transformers are 300 right now by the way, Nexus are 250.

lol I'm thinking about going with the Transformer since it has some sort of SD slot and the is bigger for only 50 bucks.

anyone trade in tales of graces f? I'm torn on trading it in, if it is anything like the other tales games I'll absolutely love it (and I'm shocked it hasn't been mass reprinted yet).

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

I think Tales of Grace F is worth keeping.

Good JRPGs this generation aren't too common, might as well keep it.

The worst part about the silly call, it's that it sounded like a blonde cheerleader recorded the message. She got the amount of funds incorrect, and sounded irritatingly cheery.

I will opt out the next time I get one. I have no interest on buying anything at the moment, and definitely plan on waiting for a sale or the Spring time if I have to.

Fuck GameStop. I went in to trade Kinect Adventures Complete and they wouldn't do it because it wasn''t opened. He acted like I probably stole it from Wal-mart or something. They refused to take a trade in. Fuck him and Fuck them.

Why do we still get posts like this everytime there's a trade-in deal? It's company policy.
Get out of the store. Open your game, and try elsewhere.
You're at fault, not them!
