Decided to trade in :360: Borderlands 2 since it's been collecting dust ever since I bought a PC. $20.10 (after bonus applies) isn't that bad considering I paid $23 for it.

I want to take advantage of this deal but I can't figure out what game I want to preorder.

For me, putting it towards Dark Souls 2 would be the no-brainer, but I would prefer it on PC and I'm sure GMG is going to have it up for preorder with a coupon closer to release, so I'll pass. Thanks OP.

Not to sound dumb, but if a game is worth 10 bucks then you get 20 bucks right?

i think u get $10 amazon credit deposited as a gift card amount, and the extra $10 can only be used on a qualifying preorder

Yeah, also it looks like if you just purchase one of the qualifying items, it may not have to be to be a preorder.

This promo got me to bite though it took a while to find a game worth trading in.  I went with :360: Saints Row The Third: Full Package for $23.

 

Here's the full fine print and I bolded a few important bits:

 

Terms and Conditions

To receive the Promotion:
• Initiate a video game trade-in between June 13, 2013 and June 30, 2013.
• If the trade-in is accepted, you will receive a confirmation email.
• Add a qualifying item described in the offer to your Shopping Cart.
• The discount will be applied automatically to your purchase of the qualifying item. 

Terms and Conditions:
• The promotion is limited to one per customer. If there is more than one eligible item in your Shopping Cart, the promotion applies to only the lowest priced item.
• The discount is valid until August 31, 2013. Amazon reserves the right to cancel it at any time.
• If your video game trade-in is not submitted in accordance with the instructions, or is not accepted, you are not eligible for the promotion and you will not receive a promotion.
• If you do not purchase the qualifying item when the promotion is in effect, the discount will not apply.
• The promotion applies only to qualifying items sold and shipped by Amazon.com. It does not apply to items sold by other merchants on the Amazon.com web site.
• If you return the qualifying item purchased to obtain the promotional code, we will subtract the value of promotional code from your return credit.
• Does not apply to orders placed with 1-Click. The offer may not be combined with other offers.
• Shipping and handling charges apply to all products.
• Offer good while supplies last.
• Void if copied, transferred, or prohibited.

 

Unless any of the games listed on the link page release before 8/31, I don't see how the $10 would work towards anything that's not a pre-order.

As long as the UPC matches, anything that is a one-time code is considered consumed whenever trading (unless specified).

 

But be careful with this one, I saw a few replies in the Amazon Trade-In thread that got their GoW collections rejected for being the "wrong version."  Might want to get someone verify it first.

They claim the promo credit will show once they process your trade.

Yes, but it should show that there has been a promo added when you "check out" with the trade.  This was the problem last time, it didn't show up for anyone that submitted on the first day that the deal started & they finally had to manually add it a week or two later.

I'm assuming it's working just fine. When I check my trade-in account, this is what shows:

I don't like this deal anywhere near as much as the trade $20 get $20 bonus for any video game, but just wanted to give a heads up:

 

LEGO Marvel has a bonus $10 credit when you preorder it (good towards anything sold from Amazon, I used mine towards a Diamond Select Deadpool figure), and although it says they'll give you the credit when the item ships, they actually deposited into my account immediately after pre-ordering.

 

TL;DR LEGO Marvel is $50 -$10 Amazon pre-order credit - $10 bonus for trading in $10+used = net $30 -value of game traded in (e.g. $20 + a $10 game trade)

So because they only take one item this may not be as good a deal as trading in to a store that only gives extra if you have more then one  item or am I looking at it wrong?

Would be all about this is BF4 PC was included.

Getting $20 for a $10 item seems pretty good to me.

The more I look at this the more tempting it is if I can find something I want to trade.  While I wish BF4 for PC or Pokemon X/Y were part of this but GTA V and Tales of Xillia should both be close to a lock on living up to expectations and probably not get a huge discount right away.  Destiny's probably pretty safe as well though I could see that being all over the place for $40 on black friday.

I'll probably be trading in Tales of Graces F for Tales of Xillia. Hated Graces, but have already tried Xillia at my friend's (who imported it) and loved the gameplay much more. Heard the story was on par with Symphonia too. 

Although I haven't traded in any games with Amazon before. Do they handle things well? I've heard of some cases in which people who traded in their games experienced some missing disc problems. 

Also, can you send in two games and get $20 for a pre-order bonus? I might send in Far Cry 3 as well. Graces F : $21 +$10 bonus and FC3 - $10 + $10 bonus = $51? yes or no?
