Microsoft Store $10 minimum trade in value!

Microsoft Store $10 minimum trade in value!

Postby spankynspronkle » Mon Dec 29, 2014 7:42 pm

So the physical stores are running a promo through Jan 4th that you can trade in up to 5 games for $10 each towards a new game purchase.

They must have value on this site: https://walmart.cexchange.com/Online/Gaming/index.rails. Also, they must have case and manual. Disc only isn't accepted.

I just traded: Borderlands 2, Rock Revolution, College Hoops 2K7 and Prototype 2 for $40. I then picked up Advanced Warfare for $40 and only had to pay the tax ($3.44 in NY). I could have opted to use a 5th game and had the whole thing covered, but I would have forefited the $6.56 remaining. Instead I am going back with 4 more games tomorrow to get Shadow of Mordor or Dragon Age Inquisition!

Time to clean out that stack of games and get some free ones!

Wow dude. I need to do this. So are they allowing you to do it multiple times?

And you are getting the gift card right away? I know through Wal-Mart they make you wait a couple weeks while they verify your trade-in.

Heh, it's a shame that the nearest actual Microsoft Store is 2 hours away for me... otherwise I might abuse that too.

It worked at MOA. I traded in a bunch of my old completed 2k6 games and got Shadow of Mordor and a gift card. They told me to come back in an hour to trade in the rest. I got some other shopping to do, so it works out.

I would clean them out if I had the time. ^_^

Traded in 5 more after my above post and grabbed Wolfenstein. The remainder again was put on a gift card. So I traded in 10 games (most worth less than a dollar) for Wolfenstein and Shadow of Mordor and $14.20 in gift cards. I kind of want to go back and grab a couple more, but I'm not sure when I would go do that. I'd need to stop at Gamestop first and pick up a couple more cheap games, too.

I picked up both AC:4 and Waychdogs in the same transaction. Afterwards the clerk said the limit was 5 per person, not per day. I'm pretty sure the fine print I read said 5 per transaction, but I dunno. Not sure if ill get back there again.

If you said:

Destiny, Wolfenstien: The New Order, and Sunset Overdrive - you win.

Really wavered on DA:I, but I really should do DA 2 and I can't commit to a long RPG right now. (coming from someone that just bought Destiny :roll: )

I'm officially done... Got 8 games in total and it cost me 10 of my own games that trade for less than $0.30 at GameStop and a $25 gift card to gamestop. Not too bad for $28 dollars worth of stuff:

Final Game List:
Advanced Warfare
Diablo 3
Just Dance 2015
Metro Redux
Minecraft
Shadow Warrior
Shadow of Mordor
The Evil Within

spankynspronkle wrote:So the physical stores are running a promo through Jan 4th that you can trade in up to 5 games for $10 each towards a new game purchase.

They must have value on this site: https://walmart.cexchange.com/Online/Gaming/index.rails. Also, they must have case and manual. Disc only isn't accepted.

I just traded: Borderlands 2, Rock Revolution, College Hoops 2K7 and Prototype 2 for $40. I then picked up Advanced Warfare for $40 and only had to pay the tax ($3.44 in NY). I could have opted to use a 5th game and had the whole thing covered, but I would have forefited the $6.56 remaining. Instead I am going back with 4 more games tomorrow to get Shadow of Mordor or Dragon Age Inquisition!

Time to clean out that stack of games and get some free ones!

They must have manuals? What about the multitude of games that don't come with manuals?

Very few you'd be trading in don't. All the early stuff was before the exclusion of manuals... Either way, it shouldn't be an issue if you're missing one from what I've seen at my store.
