I can't remember the bylaws in Winnipeg, but is it possible to trade in a game and just use it towards something like a Funko Pop, or do I have to put it towards another game? I know with controllers, you'd have to use the credit from a traded-in controller only towards a new controller. Not sure if the same applies for games.

Will EB accept a trade-in with no game cover? just the disc? I remember trading one in years ago and they took just the disc. Not sure they still do though.
Probably. They'd turn around and sell it as a new in that case.

I've seen them sell games with no case. They put it in a generic case and sell it for the same price as one with a case and artwork.

I don't think so. You might get lucky, but they like to scan it at the store from previous experience.

Also, fine print shows "Games must include original cases and artwork".


Good luck

Havent traded in for a long time. Once you get the credit, can you use to get gift cards or playstation network cards?
Yes, that's what I usually get. I think you can also get prepaid Visa cards but there's an activation fee with those.

So I can do a Trade-in for a PSN $20 card? Does EB tax those PSN cards?

Just to clear up how trade credit works

If you trade in 2 games worth $20 credit and you put it towards a $30 game you would have to pay the difference before taxes
ie. 30-20= $10
then after applying trade credit any taxes would be applied towards the remaining balance
ie. $10 + 13% tax = $11.30
As opposed to paying
$30 + 13% tax = $34.90
So in total you would be receiving
$34.90-$11.30= $23.60 discount
After you remove the additional taxes you would be paying if you purchased without trade credit
———
Now if you used that same credit towards a PSN card or put it on an EB gift Card you would not receive any additional tax discount and would only get the value of $20 from your credit
To me the 13% is what makes the difference to make trading in games worth it when events like this come up and I always put it towards a preorder game that won’t come out for awhile and when I want to buy something I go instore and ask them to use my credit on account

I think I can only trade maybe 1 or 2 eligible games.
What items do you think I can use the credit on without paying much? Funko pops? Old ps4 games?

Well, today's the day! Please report back with any titles that are rejected from your trades.

Also, for everyone's sake, please, please do not try to trade more than a single copy of Titanfall 2. I'd like to be able to trade mine when I get off work this afternoon, ya filthy animals.
