I decided to return New Dawn unopened and get a $50 PSN card instead. I was also given $6.50 cash to cover the tax!

I don't normally deal with EB Games, but this was a great deal for me.

the trick is, cancel the preorder, without giving a receipt for the original trade in towards that preorder. Just give your number or edge card, and cancel to get full value. IF you present a receipt to them showing you traded 1 game towards it, they could make them try to reduce the value.

Nice, man you guys got good csrs.

The ones at my eB games are hard core.

They don't give extra credit or money back and if I don't have a receipt they go into the transaction and see how the original one was done. Hardcore investigators lol

I just did the same thing. It felt amazing essentially trading in Shadow of the Tomb Raider (bought it for $30 plus tax at Christmas) for $50. They didn't even hesitate to give me the full $50 as store credit for Far Cry New Dawn.

Lol none of you actually looked at the receipt,

Op straight up cancelled his deposit, didn't trade in the game. Worked for op might not work for others as hero cars exist that will go back and see how you got that $50 and undo the trade if that is what happened

Which makes this further from a deal.

You’ve always been able to do this.

Basically you wasted a trade + 34$ for an old wii u port.

Should have kept Far Cry and then trade it back. I'm playing it right now and it's great!

People do not read posts. I said it was only really a deal who took advantage of the trade deal last week.

To all the users who said this is a standard trade then WHY THE HELL DID YOU NOT ANSWER all the questions about it in the previous post, you guys seem to only love to bash then help. Not one post said it was guaranteed to be able to get FULL $50 credit trade in. Bunch of useless posts you guys have to share *(yes like this one too but its all you folks seem to like on this forum)*. Had I known I would've traded a few to get the $50 credit on old games.

All the game related choice posts: It was a condition on getting the switch, I satisfy the wife so I can then buy whatever the hell I want next game purchase. Incoming smash bro and Zelda for me. If you are married you might understand the universal law, Happy wife happy life. Hopefully someday you will grow up and if you don't have something nice to say, shut the hell up.

Yup, I got it, and so did a few others with literacy skills. But don't take a majority of users personal on RFD. Most who respond have to bash or Downvote right away, its juat a knee-jerk reaction. Not enough love from their parents when growing up I guess, but I'm not a psychiatrist so what do I know.

You'll also notice a trend of who the regular bashers are. For more hints, check out how many times they have even posted a useful deal, and how many upvotes they give in total. Many are lurkers who only stick their head out to say how everything everyone does sucks.

Welcome to RFD, where downvotes and bashing are the currency of choice. Just keep posting deals, upvote good ones, and ignore the trolls.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

Because it's not guaranteed, the fact is you got a good csr interms of not wanting to check etc. Some csrs actually go into the transaction and see how you got that $50 deposit.

So it's definitely YMMV,

Say you still had the deposit and went back but a different csr was there they might check your initial trade and see that it was a special promo towards far cry and tell you that you either pickup far cry or get your initial trade $ back.

For people saying this is normal, it is on a regular deposit but the ones that are specific promos like trade X get it free aren't normal deposits. You will most likely get it as most csrs don't check but the ones near me are hardcore CSIs and will even look at security footage to determine the clothes I wore the day I did the trade lol

I didn't cancel mine. When I picked up the game, I got a new receipt that simply stated the price of 49.99 and that it was paid in full. That's the receipt I gave when returning the game.

FWIW I picked up my copy today and was told this is not eligible for the satisfaction guarantee because it was purchased through this trade in promotion.

YMMV.

1. This is huge YMMV and no different than preorder cancel, satisfaction guaranteed, or straight up regular return.

2. You posted this after the trade promo ended.

Therefore not a hot deal.

Eventually will but I see this game becoming $20 real soon and have other games in my backlog.
