While YMMV, The Incredibles is the last 3/4/1 showing in their system. I'll pickup Ladder 49 this coming week and The Incredibles next week. Nothing more remain in their system (at least as of yesterday).

I was looking at the release lists of what is coming out, so far titles that come to mind are: Team America:World Police, Lemony Snicket's:ASOUE, National Treasure, and maybe The Life Aquatic(although unlikely since it is a Criterion). These titles seem to reflect the type of movies that they usually do for these pre-orders, popcorn flicks for the most part or ones that appeal to the pre-teen and teenage crowds. This is of course assuming they will be continuing the promotion.

I was told by a manager at a local Gamestop that movies selected for this promotion are ones with a related video game release. Though when I asked him to explain "Ladder 49", he couldn't. So who really knows? I did 3-for-1 on "Incredibles" but there were no others in the system.

Picked up my Ladder 49 this evening. Next one I have ordered in the 3/4/1 is The Incredibles which should be in next Tuesday.

Discussed upcoming trades with manager who searched his system and found nothing yet. But, he said this is not unusual. Apparently there is not set rule when these trades will be announced and he said just to watch the used racks for the circular notices that adrertise what's up next. The selections he said were randomly chosen by the company. No connection to video game releases.

He said there has been no announcement about discontinuing this program, just nothing on deck. He did seem surprised when I told him some GameStops offered some movies while others did not. He had not heard that.

So, for now, nothing on the horizon and, given they usually advertise these a month ahead, nothing in sight until spring at least.

The Incredibles is all my Gamestop has available. As I've said before, I already locked into the Bambi + Incredibles deal at Buy.com, so I can't order the Incredibles at Gamestop without losing my $10 Buy.com rebate.

The Gamestop display ad said something like "get an extra 10% credit for this DVD" on The Incredibles. Not that it matters, does anyone know what that means? Are they saying they'll give $19.98 credit for the movie plus an extra $2.00 of in-store credit for something else?

I picked up Ladder 49 as a filler title as an employee suggested even though I haven't seen it and don't know if I want to keep it. I sure hope when I rent Ladder 49 that I like it so I can keep it because if I return it unopened (which they said was OK) they may never add any other titles I want.

I picked up Ladder 49 last night. It was funny, the guy said I was the only one that pre-ordered it. I asked if it was that bad, and he said that not too many people even know they sell new DVDs.

The movie is pretty good, kind of cheesy, and very short, but hey I didn't give up much for it.

As for the promotion, he said basically what kayak99 said, they don't know until they get the signs in. Can't wait for Incredibles, though. What a great movie that was.

I talked to one of the employees (not the store manager) at the Game Stop where I live, and he told me that corporate raised the price for that one -- $21.99 (like a typical Blockbuster price). He didn't tell me that's why they're adding "+10%" for trade-ins specifically to receive The Incredibles DVD, but when you put 2 and 2 together, I assume that's why they're adding the extra 10% on trade-ins for it.

I did the deal for The Incredibles today. The guy said that was the only title left in the system that they were doing the trade-in deal for, other than some anime title. He said they were going to start doing this promotion for PSP (Play Station Portable) movies. He didn't exactly seem like the sharpest tool in the shed, so I don't know how much faith to place in what he said...

My local Gamestop is not doing the 3-for-1 on Incredibles, they are only doing an extra 10% on trades TOWARD Incredibles.

I brought 3 crappy dvds BBV wouldn't take and thought I can get the 3-4-1 Incedibles deal but found out they aren't doing it anymore...

Got $6.60 credit for the 3 {Dollar Store} dvds...

Ladder 49 is among the last of the preorders in the offer at my local GS.
I'm not banking on that information as nothing about this deal seems to be set in stone.
