I stopped by EB today and saw a big banner in the middle of the store advertising their latest trade-in deal...Trade in three PS2, GC, or Xbox games and receive an extra 20% in trade in credit. The kicker was that the sign stated that no titles were excluded.


I know, I know...you can get more money selling your stuff on ebay, but this might be a good opportunity to get rid of some stuff that was impossible to get rid of before.

EB dosn't pay that much for your stuff anyway. Even if its a pretty recent title (Splinter Cell for PS2 for example), and in mint condition with box and manual, you might get $15...So you get an extra 20%...wow, $18 now...

It is a great way to finally get rid of sports titles, which is probably what most people who usually go the ebay route will use it for.

If anybody did any recent EB trade-ins, please post the titles and prices here.

I'm going to have to jump on this... I have some titles I need to get rid of because either they are out of date or will be soon enough. Anyone know when this expires?

Sorry guys, but this is not a new offer. This has been going on for a few weeks now. Expires 4/30/03

Splinter Cell is $25, $30 after the 20%

Well, I stopped by Software Etc. (part of the Babbages, Funcoland, Gamestop, and Planet X lot) and got a better offer. It wasn't advertised, but with the trade in of 3 games of similar system, I got:

1) 10 Month Subscription to Game Informer (worthless)
2) 10 Month Game Informer Discount Card (cash money millionare)

The discount card gives me 10% all used merchandice. With all the great games coming out over the next 10 months, I will not have any trouble waiting a month after launch and getting it used for 10% off. This saves a lot more money than getting an extra 20% on trade-ins.
