Question. All new purchases are 10 points per dollar, so if I spend $510 in credit, I should get 5100 points? I'm sitting at 19500 now and want to eek over the 25k mark with a ps4 purchase to get a $25 off a game after the transaction clears.

I think that's right, though I'm not 100% sure it applies to new console purchases, just that it does for new games.

Found it:

Do I earn different points for buying different things?
Yes. Here’s the breakdown:

  • New games and consoles earn 10 points per dollar.
  • Preowned purchases earn 20 points per dollar.
  • Trades earn 20 points per dollar.


Sounds like I'm good to go.

DBZ For Kinect Xbox 360 $10
Kinect Disneyland Adventures Xbox 360 $7
The Sims 3 3DS $6

$35.30 after bonuses. Spent $4.50 on a copy of Mana Khemia Student Alliance for the PSP. It's expensive online so I went ahead and got it from Gamestop, filthy case covered with stickers and all. No manual either.


Beware load times on the disk version are horrible. The PSN version is much better.

03/14/13 - Base values and all trades where made in store.

Xbox 360 -
Hitman: Absolution - $11.00
Halo 4 - $14.00
Far Cry 3 - $20.00

I got the 30% toward Bioshock and the 10% from power up rewards so to get the final value I just needed to deduct those two bonus from the final price, right?

Anyway I got Bioshock for $6 so I'm pretty happy. It would of been free but the guy couldn't get my $10 off coupon to work from power up rewards.

I have questions.

Suppose I want a Playstation 4 and assuming it will be officially announced on e3 (June 11-13) how fast do I have to preorder to guarantee one on the release date?

How did people go about doing this when the Xbox 360 was released in 2005 and the Playstation 3 was released the next year?

That's because you can't use that to pay off a preorder, you have to use it when you pick the game up. The remaining balance would then be refunded to you.

GS has an email sign up list you can be put on so you are contacted as soon as preorders can be done.

I understand and have signed up. I'm wondering how effective that will be towards getting the actual preorder assuming quantities will be limited. I'm looking for an edge on the competition.

My memory isn't so good. Was this sign up program in effect for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3?

No, Gamestop didn't have a digital system for DLC, etc. back then. Back then it was first come, first serve depending on when you preordered.

As far as an edge, get friendly with one of the keyholders of your store.

Check CAG, call GS regularly when you hear rumblings, and get there super early the morning they will start taking pre-orders unless you're in a city or largely populated area where you should just camp out overnight.

Also, the PS4 was already officially announced at their press conference last month. How much more official do you want? Unless we're talking date, which I guess would happen during E3. Though usually GS waits for a price point before taking pre-orders for these things, as well as an idea of how much stock they'll be getting (since the PS2 launch was so fucked), which probably won't happen at E3.

Wish I would've gotten more than 2 when Best Buy had them for $2! Still don't think I'm gonna trade mine in, though.

Phone quotes, PS3:

Far Cry 3 - $20
MGS HD - $10
Cross Edge - $5

Checked because I had them locked in at Amazon for $24.30, $18.00, and $15.50 respectively. I'll stick with Amazon in this case.
