$25 for Crash Bandicoot hahahahaha

Is the base less than $10 now? Interesting if it wasn't and you actually got $26.67 for putting it towards a preorder.

The e-mail EB sent shows Far Cry 5 beside the $40 credit, but their website list doesn't show Far Cry 5 at all. Confused Face I was hoping to trade it in...

perhaps that's just the super trades towards certain games... I should be good then.

They never give cash do they? Is it always just an account credit? Or do I need to use the credit towards a game purchase right away?
They always give credit, but it's typically best to use it right away. If you use it immediately or put it towards a pre-order you save on tax. If you put it on a gift card or credit to be used later, it applies post-tax.

So essentially using your trade-in credit immediately gives you an extra 13% discount/savings.

The Trade it Thursday TIV was stackable with the pull tab extra credit I had as well as the usual Edge card bump. Got more than the website's listed price and moved it to 2 preorders.

Just a reminder... Gamestop recently mentioned they have been having talks about selling.

If possible, I wouldn't dump too much credit into their system.

Yup. I've been clearing my EB credit with Nintendo eshop gift cards.

Thanks.
The best option is still in store credit. Because next time you can save tax when use the credits.
