Will this work with the extra 50% credit?


No. (I literally just answered this 9 comments above you...)

Bout time Gamestop upped the trade in values, not that I trade in anyway and only as a last resort. Good to see them feeling the heat of Best Buy.

Gamestop also sells steam cards now, so if you know you'll be buying something in the winter sales it can be a great deal.


Yup. And just because you pay MSRP for the points cards doesn't mean you can't catch a deal on those items for a promotional % off.

Traded in RE6 and Sly Collection to pickup Far Cry 3. Had a 15% off any new game on my account for some reason, so ended up getting FC3 for free with $1.40 to spare. Thanks OP :D

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Man these are awesome TIVs! I'm curious, though- will we only get these higher values if we were sent the list of TIVs in an email from Gamestop? I clicked the link above and can see the list just fine, but I can't seem to find it on my own after logging into my Power Up Rewards account or just by clicking around poweruprewards.com, so maybe the TIVs won't be adjusted to the higher levels after scanning my rewards card in store if I didn't get the email sent to me?

Is that a possibility?


Anyone?

Actually, you might be in some good luck if they don't have the cards. I stopped by last week and to my surprise they no longer had the actual cards in store. The PSN codes are now printed on your receipt. You just have to tell the employee you want them. I bought a $20.

Time to make over 100% profit on Forza Horizon.

Seriously, why are there cutscenes in a Forza game?

Considering the same. Pre-ordered for $20, and I don't even think it's worth that.

I thought about selling my sealed copy a few months ago and similar auctions on ebay were ending around 110. Saw GS selling this used for 70 back then as well.

Thanks op!


Hot damn a brand new MPT sells for almost $150 nowadays on ebay.

I remember it was $80 new a couple of years ago on ebay.

When i first joined this site a couple of years ago i had learned about the rarity of this game. The week before i signed up here i saw it at my local BB for $30 on clearance. When i put two and two together by the time i went back to my store it was already gone T.T

Damn, about to finish those pivot things in AC3 today and trade it in. Perhaps I will get a WiiU or a Vita after all.

That's become the negative, I find better prices on new games at other stores more often now. And with trade-in values like these, they'll probably raise the prices of used games even more.


Just save it for nextbox :) itll be the same price everywhere and if u pay all with credit theres no tax.

Picked up Dead Island GOTY from Best Buy on BF, I already beat the game, but figured it was cheap investment... may trade it in today, because I don't think the DLC packs are worth the profit I'd be picking up.

Don't know if you want to crop your photo or anything, but someone can determine where you shop at and your PUR number JSYK. Also watch the photo URL.

I could actually go to the store and use his card if I wished and take his remaining balance... Just a heads up!

So, does anyone know if Xenoblade is going to be terribly hard to find down the road? I'm about a third or a quarter of the way through it, but it has been shelved for months and with all the other stuff I have to play I doubt I'll play it very often until I have more time. I just don't want to trade it in for $20 ($30 with that SotW thing and a bit more with my extra 10%) if it's going to end up costing me full price down the line to pick it up again when I want to go back.

Sweet!!! Just got back from trading in 4 games (what I paid/after PUR credit):

Assassin's Creed - 10.xx/15.40
Red Dead Redemption GotY - 13.80/21.00
Alice Madness Returns - 10.27/26.10
Sly Collection - 12.xx/$26.10

Holy shit, talk about a good promo!! Sucks that that the 10% bonus is from the original price, but whatever.

I have another copy of RDR GotY that the guy said he wouldn't take because it might flag me (which I can believe since buy a lot of duplicates) and that I should take that to another store on a different day. So I'll do that one later...

Hopefully, these values stick. I can't imagine that they will though... this seems too good to be true.

I think i will trade-in AC3:L, DA:O and LBP:K for around 72$. What sucks is that I have only played all 3 games for a combined 4-5 hours. I wish i have beaten at least 1 of those games so i wont have to rebuy it. :)
EDIT: How long does it take to finish the AC3:L main story?

What im playing: 
|  :ps3: Dark Souls II :pray:   |  :vita: Spenlunky |

Recently completed:
- Grand Theft Auto V ( Great game, one of the best this gen )
The Last of Us  ( incredible game. gets the "Most honest and appropriate ending ever" award and goty )

GS is the only retailer to sell Xenoblade atm (Unless they do another run, which is unlikely). It's still $50 new/$45 used. Although GS still has new copies in-stock, they can always convert it to used if they don't sell out and if they do, the price is still probably going to stay absurdly high like Tales of Vesperia just because it's a niche title. Amazon/eBay copies are going for much higher than $50 because it's an exclusive and when GS stops selling new copies, I can only expect that to go up. I really don't see this title's price dropping at all.

Okay, so probably just AC3, Far Cry 3, Black Ops 2, (maybe 2K13), and SSBB for me then. Don't want to dump my Xenoblade or Rock Band 3 if they are both likely OOP and will become hard to find since I like both of those games. Thanks for the help!
