If its in flawless condition, EBay or Amazon. If its in shitty condition, Gamestop ;)


That made me laugh. I will probably go the eBay route.

Nice about the double TIV on systems. I just picked up a slim PS2 for dirt cheap, may just trade it in if the base is still $18. I know I could sell it on Amazon for $50, but after fees, shipping and paying taxes (since I'm a pro seller and have to report all sales) I'd only come out a few dollars ahead.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

hoping 3DS holds played and finished the only game I wanted for it so can pretty much just get fully credit back on what I payed for it if it is still 65$

Think I'll have any luck finding the Skyward Sword CE guide at Gamestop or are they long gone by now?

It's going to be tough since they were pennied out a few months ago.

During the last double trade in event, which was a week or two ago, it was $90 for a 320GB 360 slim, which doubled to $180. A 320GB PS3 slim was $85, which doubled to $170. Those were both phone quotes.

I wish the guide to Ni No Kuni was out sooner!

http://www.amazon.co...ords=ni no kuni - amazon has it for 26 right now, not exactly 50% off but they also do the price guarantee.

I'm LAUGHING at these deals

pretty weak for people that used pur points to get the console double tiv coupon


No doubt. I used 20K on 2 coupons and then this happens. Oh well, still 170K in points left, so no "point" in crying over wasted points.

Ancient PS2 systems are worth $18? :shock:

You mean I can buy the millions of ones locally for $5 - $10 each and turn them in for $36?

As for Amazon's $50 tag, that just sounds like rape!

It's not in the ad, but this week's Power Up Steal of the Week coupon (10,000 points) is a pre-owned Vita for 149.99.

Stopped by my GS after work, pathetic selection of guides. RE6, AC3, Paper Mario, and Madden. That's it.

Picked up the DoA5 guide for $5 last night. All things considered, it's not a bad read. Plenty of frame data and 'statistics' to oggle while I'm on the can.

Yep!

I got lucky and got a brand new slim for around $50 in June, when my fat one died. I was actually going to buy a used one from GS for $50 or whatever they were back then.

Oh, will BB PM the guide sale? I would rather buy from them.


I wonder this too, either BB or Wal-Mart. My Gamestops have a weak selection of guides now after having tons of them months ago.

I traded in my extra older 360 finally. I have been getting Kindle Gift Cards from GameStop with my store credit so I could buy stuff on Amazon, but they today that they wouldn't even sell me Kindle Gift Cards unless I bought an Amazon Kindle Fire at GameStop. Thanks but no thanks.

Checked at 2 other local GameStops and the same thing. I guess I will have to use somewhere else for my trade-ins now.

I have had success at Best Buy turning credit into Kindle Gift Cards. The trade-in values are comparable also.

This. I can see the systems alone MAYBE. But you need a controller / cables to get credit

The handful of cards they've received have supposed to go with the Kindle Fire HD's they have in stock all along so if they sold them to you before they screwed up royally.

Just FYI - I know for a fact the DMC guide will not work with the 50% off guides deal. There are a few exceptions to this deal, that being one of them.

Additionally, if it seems your Gamestop has a very limited selection of guides on the salesfloor, it's because most got rid of their strategy guide racks a few months back. Chances are they have a whole bunch more in back if you just ask.

Well guess its time to pick up halo 4 and return my rental copy. I have a $5 pur coupon (new games) and a $25 gc from Xmas, ~$10 out of pocket works for me.

I picked up quite a number of guides yesterday.

One of the guides was the Final Fantasy XII Limited Edition.

Yes. XII. As in 12... Im not sure why they still had that..
