GameStop makes gamer’s Wii dreams come true

Infendo

GameStop ok?I’ve had bad experiences at GameStop in the past, and I’ve let them be known here on Infendo, but today I think the cold, hard lump of ice that is my non-beating heart has begun to thraw. Just a little though.

I just had a pretty good experience at Gamestop. They are having a special trade in bonus when you trade in games towards Super Mario Galaxy or Guitar Hero III (20% bonus). I traded in a ton of Wii and DS games that I wasn’t playing anymore and put it towards those games. On top of the 20% bonus, the manager signed me up for their “edge card” which gave me an additional 10% on trade-ins (and a year of Game Informer for free). Then, their was still some kind of special going on when you traded in Wii games and I got even more trade-in value! Seriously, some of the games I was trading in I got almost 50% of their retail value back in trade! I paid for Mario Galaxy, paid for Guitar Hero III (that’s $90 retail!), paid for Yoshi’s Island DS for Molly, and still had trade-in money left so I picked up Carnival Games for $10!

Like I told the Infendo crew this morning, I think I know how I’ll be getting myself a few games for an upcoming flight to Chicago (and Galaxy for, well, whenever)…
