Gamestop’s Buy-2-Get-1-Free Sale This Weekend

Kube00 Says: I’m sure you’ve heard about this, well if not, it’s exciting news. On March 13th through the 15th, Gamestop is holding a buy-2-get-1-free sale on all used games. This is a great time to pick up older games to finish off your collection or to trade on Goozex. Get three $10 games for $30 and you’ll only pay $6.66 a game! This is also a great time to get newer, used games such as Fallout 3, Resistance 2, and Halo Wars. Just think, at 54.99, you spend roughly $110 for three games, making each game less than $40 a piece!

Let’s take a look at some cheaper pickups that would do great on Goozex or to round out someone’s collection. Assassin’s Creed for the Xbox 360 is used for $17.99 and it’s worth 550 Goozex points, that’s the perfect price to pick it up at. For the PS3, there’s Army of Two, which is a great co-op game, although it’s on the short side. That game is worth 500 points and at $17.99, who can say no? The first F.E.A.R. game for the Xbox 360 is also $19.99 used, it’s easily the best of the console versions out there and it’s worth 500 Goozex points. One of my personal favorites, Condemned 2 for the PS3, is $17.99 used, and it too is worth 500 Goozex points.

What about the last generation? During a sale like this, it is also a great time to check Gamestop’s limited selection of Gamecube, Xbox, and GBA games. I am going to try to track down a copy of Chronicles of Riddick for the Xbox. Can’t afford Resident Evil 5? Then opt for Resident Evil 4, which is another must-have for the PS2, and at $9.99 used, that price won’t get much better. RE4 is still hailed as one of the best games in Capcom’s long running series. It’s also worth 200 Goozex points. To round off the PS2 games, I also recommend Lego Indiana Jones, it’s a decent game that’s very easy to play and unlike Lego Batman, doesn’t feel old and forced. Lego Indy is $34.99 and is worth 650 Goozex points and is in very high demand. Finally, go with Devil May Cry 3 (150 Goozex points and $7.99) or Twisted Metal Black ($6.99 and 250 Goozex points). Remember to use your Edge card and save an extra 10% on all your used purchases.
