Got $42 for zombiU (cashier wouldn't shut up about how much the game sucked) and $21 for dead island GOTY. Great promo. Also debating tales of graces f but I think I'll hang onto it.

So I got a call tonight (automated) from GS telling me how much trade credit I had and that I should come on in an spend it. I was like Fuck this....luckily they gave an option to no longer receive the calls.

wait til after jan 31 2013. the current kindle+$25 kindle card promo ends then and they'll calculate kindle sales. hopefully sales are good and they replenish, otherwise it seems they just have enough (maybe a couple extra) to accompany the kindles that they have for sale.

I know I should take Alice but for some reason I want to hang onto it.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Can I trade the infamous 1 and 2 that came with my BF PS3 bundle as the infamous collection? Or does that depend on the associate?

If it's just the disc, I think it should be fine. Today I traded in my Sly Collection for a full $25 credit with the disc only, while I kept the case and manual.
If only I can travel back in time and buy more games during African American Friday and go back to the future to flip them.
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

Same here. I was able to call a couple of stores yesterday and asked if I could buy some. First two said they had no more, and the last one said they had about 3. I bought them, the guy didn't even have to hold them for me since he said no one comes in asking about them. So I'd recommend calling up a few stores to check and see.

i did that with Sly also. Figured i could find a cheap disc to replace the one i traded in pretty cheap

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

Yep. Mint condition on both.

I'm thinking of getting GoW Saga using the GamerClub $20 off, my $10 RZ cert (from the email that went out today) for $10. Then I can sell the Voucher code for the 2 games for $10 on ebay (i've sold one already) and then trade the game in to GS for $20 (and maybe buy the link's crossbow or something to get an additional 50%, thus netting $30 minus the cost of link) - just sharing a thought for anyone looking for easy credit.

still unsure if I wanna trade in the bundled AC:Liberation for $20 (since it has no case and all.. and I have yet to play it at all)

it was 29.99 on Amazon once

eBay has been suspending some accounts lately for selling digital game content online. Just be aware.

really? that doesn't seem fair.

I've sold numerous 30 day PS+ codes, the GoW code, and a few others. Hopefully I don't get jacked.

You also can't stack 50% bonus with this promo.

Pretty sure that promo won't stack with the bonus value trade ($20), and your not netting $30. Your spending $10 for $20 in GameStop credit.

One person got lucky and basically a buddy or something did an override to get the values (and they werent even correct values I think)

You just have to state you will mail the codes to not break their rules.

It's kinda dumb but they got publishers hassling them about stolen codes.

i was taking out the $10 by selling the GoW Voucher for $10 (as i said, i sold one already for $10....i may not get $10, but i'm being optimistic).

unless u have newer games to trade in, 3/+10 is a better promo. also, gs had the pulse headset on sale for 99.99 a few days ago, so itmight be wise to wait around for another sale, especially christmas week.

Made off with $89.50 for NSMBU, Scribblenauts Unlimted (Wii U), and AC1 (PS3). Gonna sit on the credit till after the holidays to pick up a game or two that I didn't get as a gift. Not bad when you consider I paid ~$90 for the two Wii U games with TRU's B1G1 50% deal.

Mailing the codes is still considered breaking their rules and won't get you into any cooler water with them.

Here is eBay's stance on what digital codes are not allowed:

Examples of digitally delivered goods that can't be advertised on eBay:

  • MP3 music copied from a CD you own or recorded at a concert
  • eBooks you don't own the copyright to and aren't authorized to resell by the owner, the owner's authorized agent, or the law
  • Songs you bought from iTunes
  • Movies you copied from DVDs you own
  • Video games you copied from the original CDs
  • PDF files of product manuals or user guides that you don't own the copyright of or you aren't authorized to resell by the owner, the owner's authorized agent, or the law
  • Online gaming accounts or artifacts such as characters, currency, or other items in any format
Read here for more info.


I was told by them a year ago (haven't sold anything lately) that as long as you have the physical card to send out, it's not a copyright infringement issue.

Things could have changed in the meantime but I'm not sure that highlighted sentences really changes the issue. A PHYSICAL item is what they want you to send to be within the rules, which I logically get. (I know, I know, you can just write the code on a napkin.)

I think they don't want people selling wow account (if people still do that, I don't play wow) and things like that. Cause you could be the guy who stole Sheldon's stuff and reselling it on ebay.

Either way, I consider selling codes on ebay just a risk in and of itself. The buyer can simply say the code didn't work and you're screwed. which is why i mostly just dump extra codes on CAG in case someone has a need for it and maybe I can get msp points or a game out of it. Recently traded a code and some vudu credit for carnival games code. That's better than anything I could've gotten on ebay and I suspect the same thing for the guy I traded with.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
