So I am a GS noob. Wanted to know if this 50% additional credit is towards Pre-Owned games only or not. Thanks!

I think I know what you are asking but the 50% is for all used games. It is a straight up promo not requiring you to pre-order or buy anything. Just 50% on top of the base amount.

No, what I meant was the 50% additional credit that I will get when I trade in a game, can that credit be used to purchase a new game or is it only applicable towards a 'Used' game.

Example: I trade in Ocarina of Time 3d - TIV = 16$ + 8$ (50% bonus)

Will I be able to use this 24$ credit to buy a new game or will it become 16$ towards NEW games and 24$ only for USED games purchase ?

Asking this as I spoke to a GS employee once who told me that is how the bonus credit works.

It's $24 towards anything sold either in store or online. Doesnt matter if it's towards new or pre-owned.

Yeah sometimes the bonuses require you to buy a used game but this particular promo does not require you to buy anything.

Side Note:

Now that the PS4 has been announced I found that saying you are saving credit up to buy works like a charm in shutting down the onslaught of pre-order requests. ;)

I'm sure this has been asked before, but how does GS handle upgraded PS3 HDDs. I have a phat PS3 I have had in my closet for months. I got a new slim one as a gift and now have this phat 40gb model PS3 doing nothing.

I might just try to sell it on craigslist or something, but if its more convenient I'll take it to GS.

Indeed - I used this line 3 times on Wednesday evening ;).

Kinectimals - $10 ($16)


Was this for the regular version of Kinectimals (and not the "+ Bears" one)? I have both and might as well get rid of the original for that price.

OP's list says regular Kinectimals trades for $9, but +Bears trades for $10. I doubt they would raise the reg version's TIV.

That's not the base price that's with the bonus.

I traded in the regular non-Bears version and got $10. I do not believe the receipt said anything other than Kinectimals on it but I can check after work.

good luck, im doing the same thing and i already have $482.61 total in credit!... now, i have to wait until christmas xD... one quick question to anybody that can answer, every time i use my credit to get games at gamestop, they never charge tax, so my question is, if i use my credit to buy the new ps4 will they charge tax? or they wont?... i can save near $50 if they dont, so please if anybody know please, letme know... thanks!!!

If you use your trade in credit card, then no tax is applied. I only pay flat rate when I make purchases (software/hardware)

I don't think you can trade in a console at all without a controller. If anything, they would likely have you buy a used one before trading it in.

well guessing from his prior post, im guessing 2k13 is on ps3 and Forza by default is xbox.

$35 for 2k13 is a good amount. Paid $30 for my copy. WOnder if I should trade mine in, since I don't play it as much and Im gonna be busy with Naruto and bioshock basically all of March.

2/22 base TIVs from this morning

3DS Professor Layton Miracle Mask - 12 (19.20)

DS Pokemon Black 2 - 14 (22.40)
DS Pokemon White 2 - 13 (20.80)

Wii Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword - 21 (33.60)


(Pretty happy I was able to "cash out" 15,000 powerup reward points using the B1G1 Wii/DS coupon. They had a copy of Mario All-Stars I wanted so I paired Skyward Sword with it to get free and trade in to another store.)
