I assume they are just doing this to stock up on whatever cheap games they are low on. Probably wont see it again for quite some time.

I goofed thinking it started today and traded in some things without really paying attention. Lost out on $25 in credit, oh well.

Word to the wise. Get your trades in on Monday. There is no telling if they will cut this trade promo off early or not. Hopefully TIVs hold.

Probably would refurb for that. As for the regular non-rumble Sixaxis controllers, not even sure GS takes them anymore. It's not showing in the TIVs, unless they lumped in with the generic PS3 controller category(which is $4 TIV). Because the only Sony one showing up is the Dual Shock 3 controllers($15 base). Don't know where you're getting the $18 from, if it's the plain sixaxis controllers.


I’ve traded in three Sixaxis controllers at the local store in recent months, getting $18 credit as Elite Pro.

Another store said they don’t take them, but two different employees at the local store took them without problem. May be a mistake, but that’s on GS. Not sure why anyone on here would call that shady.

It's because they're ringing them up as Dualshock 3 controllers, when they're not.  Just imagine going to buy a controller, get home and find out it has no rumble feature when it's supposed to.  All because some idiotic employee isn't looking and looked up the wrong product. 

 

At this point, it's on that store & employee for not noticing.  So that's at least 3 returns due to employees not giving a crap about details.  The fact that one store told you that they don't take them anymore should be some kind of flag.

oh sneaky gamestop. the website trade in values show some drops, at least from what the app showed yesterday. PS4 games like Arkham Knight, UFC 3, and Prey down to $2. The app still shows higher values, but if you save the values, they then show the $2 as well

Lol thanks. Too many long posts about Dualshock 3 trades to find it.

Given the # of great trade promos GS has been having lately, be sure to keep track of the total amount of your trades. It is not hard to go over $2000 in trades in a rolling 30-day window. Especially, if you did boomerangs on the recent Prestige 10% + non-CSAC 50% day. Getting trade banned when GS is actually giving us reasons to trade will not be fun.

The one that shocked me going through my games was Ducktales Remastered.  Can't believe how quickly that shot up in price after the news of it being delisted digitally.  If the deal does work on last gen games, should be getting $16 with pro for the 360 or PS3 version.

 

One thing I have been wondering is that this seems like perfect timing for the promo as the stores switched to bonuses based on trade-ins.  

 

FYI for anyone that purchased Left Alive during the 3 for $15.  Should be able to get back what you paid for it and then some, as it's $2 base.  So you don't want to be stuck with that stinker of a game, now is a good time to dump it.

Currently shows $2 and $2.50 based on mobile app for those trade-in values for DuckTales Remastered.

I think the $5 is going to work on all systems. I just traded my 3DS games from Five Below and it applied to all of them. $13.40 for Animal Crossing happy home designer for 3DS with elite pro

Website is showing $10 base and $11 pro for 360 & PS3 (so $15/$16 with the extra $5, if it works).   From what I've learned trading in, the website values are usually more consistent than the app ones.  Don't know what it is, but the app TIVs usually don't update as quickly as the website ones do.

 

Just like Left Alive.  App is showing $3 base, website is showing $2 base.

It was taken down. Amazon's change from day-to-day. You could have someone trade in one copy of it and that would change it. Thanks

So is it extra 5$ per game or is it a extra 5$ per transaction?  Can I go in with a bunch of 3$ games and get a extra 5$ per game or is it just going to be a extra 5$ for the whole trade in transaction?
