Just left gamestop and the employee told me (followed by a wink and a shush) that starting Thursday for pro members ANY ps3/360 used system will be $150 and you get a free $20 game. Friday for non pro members. Sorry if posted already, maybe ymmv.

Someone else did post this in the trade thread. It may be true.

 

They didn't let you keep that name, Lam?

So that's why you did it.

 

You're keeping the avatar even though it doesn't make sense now?

It might be worth it to use that 25% pre owned systems coupon. Knowing GS it probably won't stack, but $112.50 wouldn't be bad for someone

I see tons of used 360 S consoles at pawn shops for $100.

That said, I have a slim ps3 from 2009 that doesn't read blu-ray movies well, but it reads games just fine. Kinda tempted to trade that in with the 50% bonus coupon and just buy another ps3.

I still have the old version Xbox 360, might look to upgrade if the 25% off coupon does indeed work.

Keep on the lookout for LE systems. Just yesterday I saw a Star Wars S console with the metallic gold controller

You really made the grade OP with this deal

 

Will go up there in the Hall of Fame, next to the $10 for $5 amazon cards.

Ugh all I need is the console. Does Gamestop take trade in of the hdd, the controller and cables?

Verified locally. Manager stated the promotion is called System Shock and that it doesn't start until Thursday the 10th. Also stated that the 25% SotW coupon should work with it, although he didn't have all the details such as price points.

Thanks for asking, now to see if I can get that Star Wars console

I was in gamestop today and the guy there said all ps3's would be $150 and the xboxes would be $100. I think he said the xbox slim would be $129 but I'm not sure on that one.

I wouldn't mind a red GoW console, I think.

How do you get the 25% off coupon and it's $150 for the 250gb xbox?

it's the SOTW coupon, just go to your powerup rewards account and go to rewards catalog and you should find it. I'm not sure how much points it costs though since I haven't redeemed it yet. I THINK ALL SYSTEMS ARE $150, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG

Good deal. I might do this depending if I get a check this month or not (government job).

My brother has really gotten into gta v. This might be a great pickup with the sotw coupon. I could get the system, free $20 game and gta v for $125 If I use the $50 coupon I was thinking of redemming

The Steal of the Week coupon might not work to discount 150x.25. I checked my Wii receipt and it has a promotion deduction for $20 on it. It probably will have a similar discount system.

So basically that means what? The system won't allow the discount because of two promotions?

If you're on the market for a used console just go to eBay. People sell theirs cheaper and they bundle them with all their games. Especially now with the new consoles coming out, I'm sure there's some good deals to be had if you look around.

If it auto-promos, or deducts like that, other promotions usually won't stack. Coupons should stack if the systems ring up normally at those lowered prices.

It said preowned in today's email and Store Informer.

It could mean that there is no stacking and the better one of the two deals is the one that takes the discount.

I guess I'm passing, then.

Some of the latest slim model (not the super slim, just regular slim) actually got converted from new to used, I recently picked one up. The employee gave me a heads up on their conversion. 

 

It was a 320GB model, everything looked as if it was just out of the box; from the controller, cables, to the PS3. It even had the PS+ 30 day trial code included inside.

 

Just a heads up for those who may decide to go with this deal.
