I never realized what the big deal with the X for $10 extra credit was... but how is it that some of you make out like bandits with those types of deals?
I might have to go a pick up those two 512s for $20 for sure though.
Well, I don't think anyone is making out "like bandits" with this deal. Remember a year and a half ago EB had the trade 2 get $10 extra. Combine that with the TRU 90% off green-tagged games, and, well, yes, banditry ensued.
However, if you can get some of the cheap games from Kmart or Circuit City and get the 10% + extra $10 you can nearly double your money. Put that on a preorder (for another 10% boost), and get something like Lego Star Wars II for less than $20 out of pocket (original cost of games traded in). That's what I've been doing anyway
. I haven't traded anything to EB in over a week though. I will probably bring another set of 4 games in before the end of the current deal.
