So not compatible with the $10 Reward certificates stack for pre-orders?

Yes it is! If you put $5 down in store you can use the coupon and GCU bringing it down to $39.99 ($34.99 with pre-order). Then in 15 days you get 500 points.

So in Lehman's terms:

 

$10 Reward Certificate (after purchase) + $20 trade-in gift card + $10 coupon + 20% GCU discount.

Currently posting on craigslist trying to find a cheap copy of 15 for around 10-15 bucks, then turn that into $30 trade in for the preorder I already have. Great deal. Worst case scenario I buy a used copy at Best Buy for 19.99 (17.99 after GCU) then turn that into $30.

I went ahead and placed an order at BB for a pre-owned copy. I thought about trying to find it cheaper but it's probably not worth the hassle for me.

Anyone know the going price at Family Video for madden?

Small error in the OP.  The TIV for the PS3 and XB360 versions is $15, not $10.

 

Is the GCU discount taken off before or after the $10 coupon?

 

Anyone think there will be an issue trading in the Ultimate Edition instead of the regular version?  Wondering if I should just try trading in the disc only, since it has the same artwork as the regular version.

I think you get the gcu bonus on trading in madden as well since the base is $20 so the total should be $22.

Agreed - I still have FIfa 15 so it would make it easier than this situation - as I don't have Madden anymore

 

$20 trade in and a $10 coupon means I'll be trying to grab a cheap copy here in the next couple days

So if I trade this in online, can I get the 10$ gift card thingy?

 

Where I live theres some retarded law that you cant trade in at best buys  unless I drive an hour + away to the city (no idea why this is)

 

But online the TIV is 20$...

Think the mover's coupon would work on this when I pick it up?

Traded in madden x1, got $20 tiv+$2 gcu bonus on a gift card, $10 coupon towards madden 16. I didn't wanna risk trading my other copy of madden in the same transaction so I'm going back tomorrow (I work behind best buy). I preordered first Before trading in

I traded in two copies today to move credit from gs.  I got two coupons but they both have the same bar code.

You're not factoring in the $5 preorder as a cost.  Or the cost of the copy of Madden 15.

 

Bad math.

Guys, what's the best way to do this?  If I trade the game in and then immediately apply the coupon and gift card, will they take GCU off the top or would I have to pay the balance on release to get GCU applied?

Ok I will.

Madden preowned at bb with gcu applied = $17.99+ taxes + $5 (preorder deposit) = $19.11 (6.25% sales tax)+ $5 preorder =

$24.11+$22.30 ($20.99 + tax) = $46.41 for deluxe edition tax included for Massachusetts . Happy?

They apply the gcu when you pick up the game. MAKE SURE your preorder deposit is included in your total when you pick it up. BB associates tend to forget to include it. The coupon is valid on 8/25 (release date) - 8/29

Yes, thank you.

 

The $5 deposit is not a discount, so it should always be included in cost.

 

And unless you got a free copy of 15, that should be included in the cost also.

I actually miscalculated , supposed to be $20.99+ taxes

In his defense neither does the op. I assumed he was following the same format for comparison.
