Original Batman: AC? I thought it had to be the GOTY edition?


He didn't quote the promotional amount though. Only one game in his list (madden) was on the list.

No.

I would go to a pawn shop if getting cash was your goal.

Pretty sure you can't trade in sealed games. You should unwrap them before going into the store (if you're certain you want to trade them in).

Just traded in Madden 13 and Dead Island GOTY for $57 #ChaChing and sum change. Put it towards the new Metal Gear so under $10 out of pocket for it sounds like good news!

I got people in Cali where the gangs will ride on you. You ain't gotta be Dexter to have a Blood slide on you. Northside reppin', no side steppin', on the block with bars, it ain't ice cream I'm sellin'.

Bingo. It's a liability issue with the assumption that they may be stolen goods. I've heard many stories of people grabbing games from Targets and Walmarts close by Gamestops, and just bringing them in still sealed to trade (mostly for cash, of course).

Correct. They won't take sealed games. You think they would since they try to pass off used as new but they don't.

Guys may want to check your PUR accounts. I just had 8391 points deleted from my account due to a "points processing error" and someone else had around 1500 deleted in the TIV thread.

Game Stop sells the Kindle giftcards?!?!

Are these values base or with every bonus combined?

These are promotional. You'll get extra if you are unlocked off of the base. The base is roughly half to 2/3 the promotional prices in the list.

We need an FAQ in the OP to answer the few redundant and sometimes obvious questions.

Unlocked? This Best Buy or Game Stop Power Up Rewards? So I will get 10% more in addtion to the values but I can't stack the 50% PUR coupon?

Confusing me bro.

I asked about this in the Gamestop Kindle thread, looks like it might be true. Anyone see Kindle cards at Gamestop today?

Thank you for your opinion. Since my Forza horizon is new sealed, it is damaged during shipping. It is impossible to return to MS Store online to exchange another one because of the closing deadline. So, I am considering whether I tear off the seal and trade it to Gamestop.

Here is my damaged of the cover art, although it is still new sealed. I am afraid gamestop will not accept it.
