ebay needs to figure out a way to separate good sellers from bad and allow more leeway from good sellers.

The problem is that they have so many shitty scammers, they suspect everyone of being a scammer. It's like walmart where it's a huge hassle to return anything that's over a certain value.

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.

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.

The $20 from this promo wont stack with the 50% promo.

I ended up trading my Portal 2 PS3 in today for $21 after 10% PUR. I picked up LitteBigPlanet Vita while it was on sale. Odd how it works. I'm sure it's been brought up, but I had $21 credit and purchased a $19.99 game and was not charged tax, so I had $1.01 leftover. I guess when you use credit the items you buy aren't taxed? Weird to me. I put that extra $1.01 towards my Last of Us preorder I have there.

yeah, depends on the state u live in. ca charges tax, even for gc purchases which sux, but then again minimum wage here is higher than other states so i guess it evens out.

Actually us in Washington state have the highest in the country. (According to my memory and Wikipedia.) It does look like just the city of San Francisco will have the highest in January though.

We also don't have to pay tax on purchases with credit. Don't even know how much money that has saved me over the years but many hundreds I am sure.

Even if that were true, which it's not, it would not even out.

didnt mean that we have the highest overall, i was just using ca as an example because i live here and know its higher than some other states.
thats rad that u dont get charged tax on gc purchases though.

Was able to score a cheap copy of SSMB - Wii from BBV and traded it up for more credit at gamestop today, so the prices are still good, might scour the local used places for some good deals to trade-in too...wished I'd have gotten some of those BF deals now hah

Does anyone know if you have to be a powerup rewards PRO member in order to get these values? My PRO membership expired a few months ago and I was wondering if I can still get these deals with the free membership.

No, you only need the PRO membership if you want an extra 10%. You DEFINITELY can get these prices with just the free one, and don't let people at the store tell you otherwise.

As of this afternoon, values were still good, but apparently there was a national-level outage of Gamestop intranet somehow? Did anybody else run into that?

Was talked into renewing my PUR membership when trading in Sly and Angry Birds. Total TIV was $47.xx. I assume it was higher than the listed TIV because it was 2 games. Anyways, when I was asked if I wanted to renew, I asked if the extra 10% would then stack on top of those values. He said yes, but it didn't. I had places to go, so I didn't debate because both games were extras from BF anyways, so I still cleared $7 TIC and renewed my PUR with B2G1 coupon coming.

The 10% PUR bonus is based on the base value, not the promo value.
