It sucks its only on PC and not on ps4 or xb1

why does that suck?  Do you really want to play a life game simulator on a big screen tv?

I wouldn't mind the option...personally only want it on console so I can trade it in after a week or so of tinkering with it.

Awesome Free Life of the Party Pack when I get the Sims 4!!!

I doubt you are going to get a good trade in value for Sims 4 .  It's not a high demand game.

49.99 for ghosts? No wonder best buy is not doing well.

Batman is good but there are game breaking glitches. I would personally avoid that game because at any given moment you may have to start over.

Hell, I traded in :360: GTA V for $40.50 the other day, and that's before GCU.  That price for a year old game is kind of staggering (well, so was the TIV but that worked in my favor)

I can't justify the purchase of Sims 4 no matter the price after what they did to the game.

It's one of those games where you can see them purposely cutting out advertised features for cash grab expansions.

Yeah but better then nothing. I think this is the sole reason why I don't play PC games due to not being able to recoup funds. PC games get better sales deal though.

Looks like no bonus next week. If you want to trade games in, do it now.

 

Also, I would like detailed apologies (not really) from everyone who told me the bonuses would be worthless. I got so much for CoD Ghosts, it is ridiculous. It didn't even drop until a few days after the bonus went into effect, and even now it's better than before. And GTA anyone? Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!

And you sound retarded for using a euphamism that the fascist politically correct Right Wing extremists developed to mask their own insecurities and failures.

Man, that mistype really messed up my comeback. My hand was already at the "t." It was an accident. Thanks for drawing attention to it.

The way they worded it seems like they might issue you a GC that's 20% of the game....

>_>

<_<

but then again they have the word "towards" so that blows my theory out of the water.

I wonder if it'll apply to the PS4 Destiny Bundle  :lol:

Am i the only one reading this correctly?

 

It says 20% off credit toward destiny "PLUS" the trade in value OF THE GAME you're trading in. I think everyone forgot about the PLUS

which would makes this deal even better. Which basically means $12ish off before tax plus the value of the game your trading in? 

 

Is that statement correct? if not just ignore this  :D/

ya i think you are getting a 20% off coupon when you trade in any game. but their TIV are so bad you are losing a few bucks if you trade to them instead of other stores. so in essence you are paying a few bucks for the right to saving 20%. to me that's like a prorated BB GUC membership. does it make sense? lol

I'm not sure, I'm not the usual person to grab these kinds of swag on launch but I imagine they send every BB so many or based on Pre-orders.   I'm sure though they won't have a great amount of sizes available for everyone.   I'd bet though that you don't NEED to preorder as much as show up or ask later for one.

I searched for a previous thread on this, didn't find one so wrote it up.   Kudos to the other guy who took the time on it earlier.

Looks like GTAV is a good moneymaker if you already have a copy to trade in with the 50% bonus (last day today). Then rebuy it as long as you haven't reached your GCU limit yet.

But you guys have to remember that using 2 coupons/discount does not work on 1 item. I had a hard time getting Madded 15 with the $10 off coupon and the $5 preorder card. They had to manually give me the discount, register wouldn't allow it.

Also when Target did the preorder bonus for Madden the game you're trading in need to have a TIV of at least $10.

Anyone know what the best game to grab from GS for trade in would be for the 20%?  I don't have any I want to get rid of or that they would take.  Don't care if I make any $ from the trade just don't want to lose any and want the 20%.

 

Thanks.  :)
