This month's GI has a thing that lets you get 10% more on trade ins and I have that stupid card that gives me 10% more so, this may be perfect.

Yep, my store has used 360 games, but not many.

I'm going to swing by on my way to work. I always love going through the bargain shelves and getting three games for less than $20.

Now, if only Stubbs would drop a bit in price...

Do they ever post these sweet but2, get 1 free offers on their website? I always check and never see anything, and then when I find out about them, they're usually ended. So does work on everything used?

Works on anything used. Games, DVDs, accesories and even systems. The only rule is that the system cannot be the free item.

I picked up a used XBox one day and got 2 $44.99 used games. Probably the best deal I ever walked out of there with.

Uhh, you got lucky then because the sale is on Used DVDs and Games ONLY! That Gamestop isn't following the sale correctly.

Anyways, I ended up with:

Forza - Xbox
Simpsons: Hit & Run - Xbox
Doom 3: Collectors Edition - Xbox

Project Overkill - PS1 (It's good! Play it!)
Rosco Mcqueen: Fire Fighter Extreme -PS1 (YAY!)
Tenchu 1 - PS1

All complete and mint except Rosco, who has some scratches on the disc.

Grand Total: $42 & change.

No that is the policy...I was employeed with Gamestop for over 6 years. 100% sure.

Oh really? Here is what Gamestop.com says for their online sale:




Buy 2 pre-owned DVDs or Games and receive third game FREE!


ADD any 2 pre-owned titles, each valued at $29.99 or more, to your cart. Next add one pre-owned DVD or game for $29.99 or less to your cart.


Enter coupon code 3FOR2PO into the coupon code box on your shopping cart page. Ignore all other coupon codes.


PROCEED to checkout as normal & select your shipping method. Your discount will be applied at checkout!

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
Terms of offer subject to change at any time. No dealers or resellers, please. Valid for in-stock pre-owned items only. Only 1 discount per order - may not be combined with other offers or promotions. Valid only on purchases of pre-owned games and DVDs. Not Valid on consoles or bundle offers, including games with free premium items. Offer good online only - not valid in stores.

I highly doubt this would differ in stores. Every store in the Philly district goes by "no systems" strict policy.

The online store does have different promos. Up until 2006 retails store weren't even allowed to do returns for purchases made online. I'm not going to argue my point...it's just that I was a store manager for over 2 years and have a roommate who is a current employee. I wouldn't see why they would change things for this go-round.

Just a little FYI. You can always expect this sale at the very end of a sales quarter. A good way to boost profits real quick.

Okay, spent entirely way, way, way too much at this sale, but I filled in a lot of gaps in things I'd been meaning to pick up. Here's what I got:

-xbox
Beyond Good & Evil
Crimson Skies
Indigo Prophecy
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Stubbs the Zombie
Tony Hawk 4

-ps2
Kuon
Timesplitters

aaaaaaaaaaaand...

Steel Batallion.

I've been looking at the game on the shelf for what seems like forever, and I figure now it's time. Can't wait to boot this thing up on the 8 foot screen projected on our wall. 8-)

Count me in on that "Way Too Much" thing. My GameStop just up the road has a complete steel battalion... Soon as I get paid next week, it's getting bamf'd into my house.

As for today (instead of going to the gym, I went to GameStop... and ate a burrito) I still spent way too much. $129.93, to be exact, but that includes my $5 down on MGS3: Subsistence. On to the travesty...

That cut out a large swath of my wantlist, and finished my current desired Xbox collection. There are still a few games I want but nothing detrimental to the collection.

X-Men Legends II - Xbox
Sonic Rush - DS
Gradius V - PS2

Grand Total:
