If anyone has an extra $10 Madden coupon that they won't be using, I'd gladly take it off your hands :)

Let's say I have two copies of Madden, can I trade them in and get two coupons to use towards ONE Madden 19? Or you can't combine two?

You'll receive two coupons but can only use one per copy.

Bought  Madden 18 today for $6.xx, ripped off the plastic seal, went to customer service, got my $12.xx giftcard and $10 coupon. :D All I know about football is that OJ Simpson is a bad man.

If you switch to store pickup, you get an extra $1 off.

When will the madden trade promo end exactly? 8/4? If so, then I won’t receive my nfl 18 copy by then

It only took 6 posts later to repeat the same question. That must be a record on cag.

The trade in value dropped as well to $5. I have two "physical" copies on hold (~6 each) at best buy that converted to "digital" on my bb account. I am undecided if its worth it to drive 20 minutes to best buy to pickup and trade 1 copy for small loss and get coupon (cancel the other)

Yeah, I've been disappointed with Madden the last several years so this was the first time in a while that I didn't jump on the BB trade in offer.  I'll play it on EA Access for 10 hours and if I like it I will just wait for a used copy to become available at Gamestop.   Although you can't beat the net cost the BB was offering when Madden was trading in for $11.28 base...I calculated it at $27.50 out of pocket for a new copy after all discounts and credits.

Does an in-store reservation still get you the $10 pre-purchase credit?

I did in store for hall of Fame edition, got the $10 later that night when I got home.

It's even better when you factor in trading the game in for $20-25 after the Super Bowl. It's basically like I'm letting BB borrow $20 for 6 months. I barely play the game, but with that kind of deal, it's a no brainer.

Did anyone with GCU try using the bonus $10 trade-in voucher yet?  Went to pick up my copy and was told couldn't use both because GCU's discount was an "offer" and voucher excludes other offers.

The $10 coupon? You have to use that when you pick up the game. Otherwise, it's now useless.

He is saying they wouldnt let him use the coupon and GCU, which is wrong and just more bad training on best buys part.

I know... That's what I mean. That's so stupid of them. How does that make sense? What would be the purpose of the coupon then? Lol

Yeah, wasn't even the employee just verbally shutting it down... system wouldn't let them take the code (unless that was b.s.).  Can't remember ever having an issue with GCU and another offer before; maybe because the program is phased out (think mine expires in March... will be a sad day!).

Well it worked for me this morning. Not sure what was wrong. They were probably scanning the coupon at the wrong time.

When do new games get added to the BB trade in program usually? I'm not keeping M19, I just wanted to make some money off M18.
