GTA V for 4.97

When you trade in 2 games.

http://www.gamestop.co.uk/GTAVTrade

List of games on the site.. there's over 200 spanning all the platforms.

You pre-order the game at 39.97
They send you a special envelope
You post the games
They send you GTA V and refund you 35

Unless I'm missing some kind of drawback that is an amazing offer.

Pretty good deal seeing as there's a huge list to choose from, it's mostly PS3 titles though. You can buy some of those games for like 5 each then trade them in for GTA V? Wtf!

Surely they're losing money doing this... But I do find it funny you can trade in GTAV to receive GTAV!

No, you can trade in two GTA Vs to get GTA V. Does anybody know if these have to be traded in with online passes etc.?

Nobody trades in games with online passes. That won't be a factor.

This is a sweet find OP. Think i'm gonna go for it. I got tons of games on that list.

I've got 3 games off the list I think, probably go with GTA 4 and maybe AC3.

I wonder if you can trade in two copies of the same game?

Shame I've already pre-ordered and paid for my copy. Forza 4 and GTA4 would have been perfect for me to send in. Excellent deal though.

I decided remembered to finally put my money down and went through the process of making a Gamestop account. Annnnddd they didn't send me a confirmation email. So I then requested it again a couple more times and still nothing.

EDIT: Got my email(s) a couple of days ago. But the website is f***ing broke, I click checkout and it returns me to the homepage and won't let me back to basket until I click cancel on my orders (of which there is none)

It's a nice idea but their T+C's suck. It may as well say:
"To qualify for this offer, you must be the owner of the games. The games must not have any scratches, the covers must be in pristine condition and even if this is true we may refuse this offer for no reason whatsoever. If we refuse your offer, the games might break in transit back to you but that's not our problem"

I've already pre-ordered mine off Amazon. It might be worth trying this out, but I'm still debating.

They are going to resell these games. Why should they accept discs that are scratched to fuck, and covers that are ripped or hanging off?

I'd probably take pictures of what I send them before I sent it anyway, but that's only cos i'm kind of cautious with stuff like this.
