Traded in 6 games that I either got as gifts or less than msrp ($10 sly cooper for example) for a whopping $131 credit (decided to add on the pro membership, so minus that but plus 10%). Sweet deal.

Now what do I buy? :( maybe Ill wait for nextgen like everyone else or for the next big Rpg. Ah well.

The idea of finally picking up a PS3 has been fluttering in my mind since Black friday. Picked up a new 360 instead so I might use this promo to get a used console for some God of War and infamous :D

Hell I paid $30 for :360: Alice like 18 months ago when it was a few months old and never finished it. With the Complete Collection dropping on PC (including the original Alice game and DLC), I'll just wait for a cheap sale on that and dump this copy. That plus Sly, Forza, and maybe a couple others. Lego Star Wars Complete is $15 brand new on Amazon right now, for crying out loud, and I've got a lot of Lego games to play.

Definitely about to go to work (Kmart) and buy all of our copies of Portal 2, use a $15 coupon, and then flip them for over double.

Traded AC3, UMVC3, WWE 13 and UFC Undisputed 3.

I watched a guy spend basically the exact same amount I got on Little Big Planet Karting and Lego Batman 2 alone and almost cried.

I don't know if this is a silly question.. it probably is. Will this deal work for cash trades?

I was thinking of trading in my copy of Hitman Blood Money since I got a free Steam copy for preordering Absolution at GS. Then I saw that a used copy is fetching about $40 on Amazon. I think I'll wait to sell it there. So anyone that also sells on Amazon or wherever, make sure you double check sell values before trading in. You might get a better deal.

I have about 2 or 3 games on that list and are sealed except for Dead Island goty which I just opened and started playing LAST NIGHT. I am already hooked on it, but $20... could trade that, RDRGOTY, and UMVC3 towards Far Cry 3. Backlog is large and and Far Cry 3 looks HUGE with the crafting and all. My wife has shown interest in playing it as well.

I really want to keep and play RDRGOTY but not sure if it will hit sub $30 anytime soon.

So I buy GoW Collection for $20. I download The Origins collection. I get 30 days free PS+. And I can trade it back into Gamestop for $22? Genius!

Is this an instore price only? Online I still see it for $19.99. And I thought you could only trade in one of the same game at the same Gamestop?

Blood Money is a kind of rare-ish game. Or at least not common. You know something is up when GS sells a 6 year old game for $30 and is running trade in credit promos for it.

I regret never buying it back in the day (borrowed a friends to play it)

Yeah, it's in-store only, like a lot of our weekly promos. I'm sure it's the same with Deus Ex ($10) and Red Faction Armageddon ($15).

We don't have many copies, but one PS3, one Xbox at two stores.

Keep in mind all that these are bonus trade values. So ur PUR bonus is off the regular value. I just traded Black Ops 2 and it was $42 total not $44. Not sure if this was posted yet.

You have to actually go to the store and trade it and be a PUR member. It's not gonna pull up on their computer by doing a manual search for it.

Can anyone find any logical reason why the 360 version of Borderlands 2 isn't on this list? :(

Good luck waiting. I won't be shocked if they lower a popular game or two, like last time, during this 'guaranteed' trade in deal.
