Same thing as last year! Supposed to be 5 per person per pre order / game buy. Any more then 5 Game exchanges at a time is YMMV what I did last year was leave and came back a few times. They use the same System as Walmart so before you go check the http://walmart.cexch...ing/index.rails page to see if your game is accepted. Gamestop is having a 2 for 1 preowned sale which this is perfect for.

Most likely YMMV depending on how lenient the employees are

Any Xbox one, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 game that's on the cexchange website.

Just return the game if you just want the gift card.

Would 4 games make that free, or would the game have to be $40+?

It says "Limit 5 per customer/purchase". Is this 5 trades per customer per purchase? 5 games you can buy using this promotion?

Do they have a way of how many times you've traded in or can I can hit up different stores on the same day?

supposed to be 5 max trades per customer - ie $50 max credit at a time.  most will let you come back again and do another transaction but some will not, so don't load up on 20 games and get shot down like a fool.  Some will let you do more than 5 games in one transaction, but its heavily YMMV and probably easier when the store is deserted.  

 

They do take your drivers license info down when you trade so they could look up how many you have done, I doubt most of the reps will care though most are too perky and cheerful (apple store clones) to ever want to say no to a customer.

 

from last time, it takes them FOREVER to do trades since they have to fill in all these forms on a stupid little tablet and then print out a bunch of forms.  over the summer when I did it it took me about 20 minutes to trade in 6 games (they didn't have a limit initially).  You get a microsoft store gift card, good in store ONLY not online so something else to keep in mind.  

 

It was a great way to get rid of a bunch of old shitty 360/ps3 games I had that I never was going to play, but if you are going to actually go out and buy old games at gamestop and trade them seems like a lot of effort for little gain.  For pre-orders, you have to put down $10 towards the game.

 

also microsoft pre-orders are cancellable but you will not get a refund if the game launches and you never pick it up, there is a warning that after 30 days you forfeit your preorder deposit.
