Yeah he would get a negative survey, also should be flyers out about the extra 50%, nothing in the literature says all of it has to be applied.

Went to trade in ps3 and bought a $1 used game to counter and the employee is hassling me that the Full credit must be used towards the preowned game. Can anyone explain this to me? That would mean I would need to spend 120$ on preowned stuff.

 

That's funny, when I traded in my copy of GTA V, I pre-ordered Batman, and only wanted to apply just the 5 dollar deposit instead of paying in full. However, he told me that I can't do that, and that it has to be applied to the game. He said this after I had signed for my trades. I was planning on coming back for the midnight launch and trading in a set of Pearl and Diamond to get the bonus since I was buying Batman then.

So is Pokemon still working? :o

I'm also curious. I didn't make it out yesterday, but Batman is out today, so I plan on flipping towards it.

Sorry can't quote on mobile. Tried the other store and the guy did the trade in with no problem. Now I'm going to find out how to complain to my district manager about the other employee but unfortunately I didn't get his name.

Glad to know that GTAV's base price held. I had passed on two GTAVs yesterday because I was doing some other trade ins. I'll go back to that gamestop to get those two copies and Beyond Two Souls or Diablo III (they didn't have NBA/FIFA).

How could MAR have an STD? In order to get one, you first have to have sex.

Probably, but I don't have the nerve to trade a game back into the place where I just bought it.  I'll take the $11 from GS.  ;)

I have an interesting story to tell while I was doing the trade 2 get 1 for $9.99.  The GameStop that I occasional go to when I don't have the car asked for my ID when I was trading in the games.  This GameStop is located in Fields Corner.  If you live in Dorchester, MA then you know which one I'm talking about.  I usually go to the one in Pearl Plaza.  (They don't do this at this location)  Before the employee finished doing the trade she said that she was going to take a picture for the trade.  The only conclusion that I came up with is that lots of people have been trading in stolen copies of games and that this is one way of dealing with this problem.  Has this happened to anyone else?

Pawn law may have changed in your city. Last year at this time is when STL required ID for all trades even for credit.

TIV today

Pokemon Black 2 DS $12 base
Pokemon Diamond DS $10 base

YMMV, but employee had no issue applying the promo toward my Batman preorder from last night. $35 in credit for a release day pickup, not too shabby!

I know this has been asked before but, when you trade in stuff, can they see your recent purchase history? If I buy two games at one store and then immediately trade them In at another, can they tell I just bought them?

There seems to be a slight delay between when they can see it.  I know this because I had someone point out my history after just doing a pokeventure the other day but they didnt see the games I was trading back to them that I had bought at another store.

Sorry man, if you don't know by now then you don't really need to be doing this.

Does anyone know if you can use PUR Coupons to pay off preorders? For instance can I use a $10 Power Up Rewards coupon to help pay off AC4?

If you don't have enough time to figure it out, you don't deserve the help.

No, you can use it the day you pick the game up. They will refund you the money if you already paid it off.

They can most definitely see your recent transactions. How many? I think it's pure conjecture, but many have said it's the last 5 purchases. Another thing to consider is that they are rolling out a new POS system so some stores may be different - even in the same city/district.

 

Now say if you bought 10 games in a single purchase, whether it would show them the entire purchase or only a couple of games from there is anyone's guess. I don't recall anyone here who works for GS go on record to say what exactly the POS shows them for prior transactions.

 

The real question is: 'Is the POS showing recent trade-ins as well?'
