Actually I was reading that coupon and it says to go to Best Buy, Circuit City or Gamestop OR purchase online.
...but there's no coupon code?

..Or does it mean to buy it FROM Sandisk?

OR maybe my eyes are just being deceitful (def spelled wrong) and there is.. and I'm missing it. I'd love to try the $25 off 2 512mb @ bestbuy.com

Is there still a Trade Exemption/Exclusion master list around somewhere? I couldn't find one on GS/EB.com, or on the forums.

The only exclusions are "old sports titles," but nothing is automatic. So if a clerk doesn't care, you can use anything.

YMMV, I know a couple of stores that will give the bonus to anything that scans in the system (and doesn't need the refurb fee).

Glad this is going on again, there are a few stragglers that I didn't get to trade last time.

ok, about the SanDisk Coupon.

Best Buy has the card for $17.99 now.

http://www.bestbuy.c...d=1108125653453

It would seem to be that this "coupon" is not really a coupon, but a price point for a period of time.

I think the BEST that we can hope for is that EB and GS drop their price, but I highly doubt they will. They are aiming for you to buy 2 cards for $50.

It seems that some of the trade-in prices have dropped? (based on the CAG wiki page).

I just got (before the $2.50 bonus):

PS2 Midway Arcade Treasures - $3 (was $5?)
PS2 Dead To Rights - $1 (was $1.50?)
XB Fatal Frame - $6 (not listed)
PS2 Trigger Man - $0.25 (was $0.75?)

XB Brute Force, PS2 Oni and XB Crimson Skies were all still $0.25, PS2 Silent Hill 2 was also still $8.

Some trade in values for the wiki (before bonus):

PS2 SSX 3 - $4
PS2 SSX on Tour - $6
PS2 Lemony Snicket - $2

GC Eternal Darkness - $3

I updated the CAGwiki through this point. Keep those trade-in prices coming. It seems there have been some minor drops, so be prepared to see some prices $1 or so less than in the wiki.

They sell Fatal Frame for xbox for $24.99 but only give $6? What a rip.

That's why we started the trade it here before EB thread, but unfortunately not many people have felt the urge to use it.

It's just easier to dump a bunch of stuff at your local GS instead of all the trouble and expense of selling it here(for most games anyways). It's a lot of hassle for a couple extra bucks unless you have a high demand item that CAGs are willing to spend actual money on.

I saw people offering to pay what GS/EB offered plus $2.50 for shipping in the other EB trade deal thread, and that's just crap. Why would anyone bother?

ive starting selling my random games on ebay...and its not really that much of a hassle...all i have to do is put them in a usps box (i have a TON right now because theyre free), then take them to the post office...not really that much extra work. i used to think it would be, but its actually very simple, with a lot of items, 2.50 more per game adds up

Just called my local EB and he said the trade-in 4 deal ended last week. Is this Gamestop only?

Nope, it's both GS and EB:

That's what I thought. I notice that it's dropped to $19.99 online now, but that's still a rip-off. It looks like the other games that dropped in trade-in value also had a price drop online.

At the time though, $8.50 seemed ok for the `free'(comp'ed) trigger copy I had that came without a manual and a scratched up disc from wherehouse.com.

For the trade 4, is that $10 extra in credit per title or $10 extra in credit after the total of the 4?


to put it simply, the add $2.50 to each title.

got my reciept to prove it. but im lazy. and i dont own a scanner.

Was denied the trade four offer today in KC...Noland Road. Was told it ended Sunday. I kept saying, 'are you sure' and 'will you check' but they refused, and there was no signage for it anywhere. I told them it is on their own webiste. Anyone having the same problem?

If they did their marketing correctly, they should have a tower in the front of the store with 4 signs on it. 2 of them are for the 360, 1 for the trade in offer, and another that I can't remember. It is a large yellow sign on the tower with red print advertising the trade 4 get $10. If it isn't there, try to get the DM's number and give him a call about it (then again, it might not be worth the hassel for you.

this prolly isn't the right place to post this but, that $25 sandisk 512MB pro duo card coupon didn't work for me. In store the price is 44.99 but it rings up as 19.99 or 17.99.

The manager came over and read the damn thing for like EVER and finally he was like "it says prices range from 19.99 to 24.99 after instant rebate" which i guess it did but eh, still wasn't cool i was hoping for a free memory stick or adding something on to equal the 25 discount but whatever.

You guys should check out eStarland for tradeins. They seems to be a lot better even after this extra $10 deal - though they seem a bit more concerned about tradein quality. Then again, thats a good thing when you buy stuff from them.

Ive never been able to trade in any games at GS or EB. To me on most games they just pound you in the ass on the prices.

A clerk at GS near me said that you can't trade in the GUNCON on the TC3 or TC:CZ. But this guy is also a complete A-hole and makes mondo mistakes. Can a CAG give me the real poop. Saw two TC:CZs and would love to flip them for credit.
