GameStop in CA doing +50% credit for all game trade ins

+20 Deal Score
10,290 Views
Hey guys, I didn't see this on the board so I figured I'd let you all know. Currently Gamestop is doing Cash same as Credit for everywhere in the US EXCEPT CA. (PS4 500gb trade in for $200 cash is pretty good!) But since they aren't doing Cash same as Credit in CA, they have instead offered +50% on all game trade ins. This isn't advertised on their website, I went in person and they told me. Hope this helps some of you out!

*Not sure why the TDs, thought this might help some people out.

I'm not sure what it normally is but it's 50% from what I traded in. 70% would be nice!

Not sure, usually these last about a week.

As far as I know, the +70% game trade in is only CA because they don't do Cash same as Credit.

Tried getting credit for a 500gb ps4. Apparently this promo does not apply for gaming consoles.

Games, controls, cables and phones possibly

Yeah, it actually is 70%, I just checked. The employee said 50% extra so I believed her but after doing the math, it is in fact 70% more for trade in.

Looking at your receipt, it looks like it's adding 50% to the base trade in value and then you are getting the 10% for being a pro member added to the base value as well. For example, the regular trade in value for God of War is $17.50, 50% = 8.75, 10% = 1.75.
17.50 + 8.75 + 1.75 = 28.00

just my observation.

You're right, I dunno why I thought it was 70%, I looked at AC origins and for some reason it came out to 70% to me but I probably did it wrong. Thanks!

Shoot that's a good deal. They were also doing this the first week of the spring sale. I think they're going to nuke values this week though so better to take advantage of either promo sooner than later.

Thanks for posting, OP. Well I took my games (Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver) to GameStop to trade both of them in for GameStop Credit. Both quotes for $60.00 and I'm happy about that.
