Took about 30min because the guy didn't even know how to process a trade in or about the Triple Value promo, but ended up trading in:
Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes
Super Mario Sunshine
Legend of Zelda WindWaker

All for GameCube, $30 a piece.

Values went up a bit.  

Yesterday I would have received 117 for Mario 3d, DK TF, and BF4 (PS4).  Today I got 137 anc some change.  

So I would recommend going.

I may trade in a few more games since the value is SO good right now and then just pick them back up @ around $20-$25 when they are on sale.  NBA is the only sports game I keep and may get rid of and pick up when its cheap.  I have NBA 2k11 and 2k12 since Jordan is on the cover and I kept 2k13 as the Dream team is in it (only game with them in it, 2k14 I want to keep as I collect MJ and LeBron items so that would add to the collection. 

I may get rid of NFS Rivals, Killzone, and NBA, then just snag them later.

 

I got a lot of good money out of this as I was looking for a good way to get rid of my Wii U and with the 2 games I traded, plus selling my Wii U (black 32gb), Nintendo LAnd, and Zombi U, and received a total of $350 for all my Wii U stuff.   :D/

Plus I have a $60 GC to gamestop, $500+ in my paypal account, $337 on my gamestop rewards card, and now $137 to target, and XBone is tempting.  There just are not any games that interest me at the moment.  I may just use the $$$ on retro games for the Retron 5 (whenever that comes out) as Ive had it preordered since September.  Then just us the credit at the stores for PS4 games and the few PS3 games I would still get.

artwork is the outer insert, since some will trade in the gamestop ones, those aren't the original pictures just generic inserts, they would say manuals, since vitas don't come with it, then they wouldn't except those games if that is what they meant

 

You could make the argument that the artwork is only the artwork in the case, considering a manual is called "a manual".

 

What if the manual is 100% text and has no artwork on it whatsoever?

 

"Original Case" is the case WITH the covers, and "Artwork" is the manual inside (if one was included).

 

If "Original Case" did not account for the covers, then it would be pointless since anyone can go take a random case without pictures and call it the original one,

 

I hope this helps clear things up.

Awesome, glad to hear it's working. I can't believe I'm going to get $180 out of these old GameCube games! Better hold off my celebrating until I have the gift card, I suppose.

Fire Emblem is selling for $60+... Seems crazy how many people are just blindly dumping all their Gamecube games.

I was in the fence about trading in MGS too, but the case was a little beat, manual is missing, and Disc 1 was "peeling", the top layer was sort of flaking off, although it still plays perfectly. The employee looked at it and didn't mark it down, so I figured $30 wasn't too shabby

Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS actually increased in price, I figure I dont even play it anymore and Im getting Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U so why not

So they want 3 and you're only willing to give them 2....that's a bait and switch.

 

 

Also, I found out the hard way that my mobile section (despite signs that indicate otherwise) does not open until 2.

MGS TS is going for about $35-$40 on eBay right now, and my copy didn't have manual, was a little beat on the outside, and disc 1 had surface peeling. I figure if sold on eBay, you'd only make our with about $29-34 after fees anyhow, so I took the easy $30 trade in

Really depends on condition.

I traded 6 different $30 ones that were only so so and some without manuals.

$180 was more than fair, I agree that most $30 GC games in minty/complete conidtion, do not make sense unless you want Target credit...

Yeah I guess MGS has come down in price since last I looked.

 

For some reason a lot of them have the pealing issue. Mine has that as well buy plays fine. Must be whatever they used to coat it with. When I was looking for it at gamestop they were all like that.

Fire Emblem games always shoot up in price when a new one comes out for whatever reason. Both the Game Cube and Wii ones are worth over 60. I think its because of a small print run or something.

Sure, but $60 is the low end then.  Disc only is a a few bucks less complete is a bit more.  Easy $55 on ebay for a disc only copy...  I'd take $50 over $30 Target credit but maybe that's just me.

I would not trade Fire Emblem games to Target for $30. I might run over there and trade case and disc kinda rough copies of Double Dash, Strikers, and MP5 for $90 though.

SO I totaled my balances from my previous post and here is what I have TOTAL.

 

Paypal = $562

Gamestop = $427 (rewards and 2 GC's)

Best Buy = $10 GC

Target = $137

Cash from selling Wii U with some stuff = $210

 

I may trade some more stuff too.  

 

total = $1346.  Already have watchdogs paid off.  Plus I have some sealed collectors editions to sell on ebay that go for $150 and more.  Man that Xbone is tempting.  Especially going to $399 on June 9th.  I have to wait and see what games they announce as the ONLY games to play now (for me) are DR3, Forza, Ryse, and Killer Instinct.  There is nothing coming NOW for it, that stuff will be announced at E3.  If they announce CRAP or ONLY Halo stuff then Ill wait.  I know Gears will be announced but that wont be out till 2016.  So E3 is all on you MS.  Im sure Im not the only one in this boat waiting to see your move at E3.  There is NOTHING exclusive coming to your system right now.  PS4 doesnt have many exclusives but the ones it has are GREAT and it has more than XBone.  You make good moves MS and you will have my sale.

Not to be a dick but what's the point of this post?  Does anyone really care what your balances are, broken down by retailer?
