I could use a code if someone has a spare and I have a question.  If I get a code, do I just tell them the code while checking out since I don't have the physical coupon?  Is this frowned upon?

Really going to be interesting trying to get these values from the app I bet.

Well, I already went ahead and purchased the MLB from BestBuy so I'll let you all know later tonight how it goes.  I imagine with the "this offer will be honored for today's buisness day" wording right on the app they'll have to.  I know I would've as a former manager.

Nuke is coming. Just a matter of when. Could be any minute now...

 

For those thinking about locking in their trade values via iOS app, if the store decides to honor them, they will have to do a manual override per game which most reps are hesitant to do. Then you have to deal with getting them to accept the coupon with the override values. The rep might consider that "double dipping" and will tell you it's either or. I believe you guys will have a hard time with this approach but feel free to share your experience when you try.

 

I guess I'll see you most of you guys in the Best Buy trade thread once their systems are updated with the new trade values? :rofl:

 

The app does fortunately say base values at least which is... something.

Yes, that won't be the problem though, the 50% stack will be.

I'm going to head out in a few minutes to see if I get lucky. I locked in all the games on my iPad and hope they will honor it.

I guess the real question/drama then is if they do that do they have to manually adjust them to the 50% values or if they adjust them to the app values and scan the coupon will it work.  If it's the latter it seems more likely to work.

Just quickly ran over to a GS to do a trade in.  Old high values still holding strong so far.   Hopefully they hold a little longer.   Good luck

I just left gamestop (in the parking lot right now) it seems like they are going off the app values bc nothing was nuked for me
Xbone
cod ghost $22

Ps4
mlb 14 $30
nba 2k14 $20

360
burnout revenge $7.5
borderlands goty $10
saints row 2 $ 2.5
red dead redemption goty $10
Two worlds $2
DreamWorks super karts $6
soul caliber 5 $9
max Payne 3 $ 1.5
midnight club complete edition $5
cod modern warfare 3 $4

Wii
skyword sword $30 x2

Walked out with $302.79 after bonuses. He made a point to tell me they aren't supposed to take just the code, they are only supposed to give 50% with the physical coupon so ymmv on reading the code off your phone.

Ok thanks guys I see where I needed to go to the "next" page to see the nuked values.  Lost money big time waiting for this one, especially with MLB 14.

Good thing about this is that it won't update till tomorrow.

Gamestop is on the central time zone, so newvalues probably didn't update til then, and may take some time to trickle down. I went right when they opened on the eastern time zone and got all pre-nuked values. If you're gonna trade, try to do it quick.

Doesn't matter now. Once the values are nuked, everyone will be throwing their coupons in the trash

Yeah, if the values are still holding in store I think it won't get changed till tomorrow. I don't remember gamestop ever changing values mid day before.

I got all the values. I got $311.20 for my first trade. Will be going to another and a third later on. Should be getting $168 and $84.80 for the third. I did have another two sets coming in tomorrow from Amazon, but if values don't hold I'll just return them. Those sets are worth $107.20 each.

I just traded in a few minutes ago and all the values were fine. I got $48 for Tales of Xillia 2, which is awesome and it saves me the trouble of having to sell my copy from the Best Buy, because I ended up buying the CE.

 

 

I got almost $400 in store credit, so I am very happy right now. I hope all you CAGS at work can get in on this :)

 

Also thanks again to Jaashua and r00kie for helping me find the 50% coupons.

Just walked out the door.
All my values were what I expected.
Didn't have to bust out the trade Estimate.

But I've still got 6 games coming in the mail to trade this afternoon.
So see how that goes.

So basically, what I've gathered from all this panic is that the stores are still giving out the high trade values.  The online trade in page is the only place that is showing that a TIV nuke is incoming. 
 
I don't remember exactly but wasn't it a year ago or so when we had a TIV nuke at GS mid-day? It was a rare occurrence from what I recall.  Nukes generally happen overnight.  Hopefully if the values don't update in their POS until after their daily system update, that would mean there's a chance the values hold for just today at least.

Saw someone posting (like 30 pages back now haha) about Etrian Odyssey games - if they're CIB and you haven't traded them in yet or they get nuked, I may be interested - PM me ;)

Might have missed that, but it is to my understanding that the POS updates at night. I'm gonna give my fellow employees a call since I don't work today, to check is corporate sends any emails regarding the nuked TIV

What I did is go to BBY and price matched Fry's, 54 for the bundle out the door.

Unfortunately I work for GS so I can't trade more than 2 copies max, and can only trade in at 1 store.
