Deal Details

Last Edited by wuzzy August 21, 2016 at 12:12 PM
I didn't see this advertised anywhere, but when I went to see the value of the games I no longer played, I saw they added the 50% bonus on top of the value.

Decent time to unload your games!

These trade in values look particularly bad this time

I'm not seeing the bonus anywhere either for PS4 games.

Does anyone know if this works on hardware?

I'm not disagreeing with you; however, more times than not after they lower it, the additional trade in percentage still yields higher payouts. For example, if a game was $23 before, they may lower it to $18, but then $18 + $9 (50% bonus) equals $27. So while you aren't truly getting 50% more than last week, at least you're still getting a higher payout.

GTA 5 is $34.50 which seems pretty decent to me..

NBA 2K16 is only $15 which seems a little low to me.

Yup and same value, just like GameStop.

If the employee gives you a fit, go grab a pre-owned game without the cover from their section.

So now you only need 50% less lube on trade-in?

Anyone know how long promotion is for? I was going to trade in some games anyway so this deal is coming at a good time. It doesn't look like they've lowered the trade-in value for the games I was looking at trading in, FIFA16 and PES16, so no complaints here. With Gamers Club I should get another 10% on top of this.
