GameStop Easter sale offers buy two, get one free deal on used games

All used games under $20 are buy two, get one free this weekend.

To celebrate Easter, GameStop is offering a buy two, get one free deal this weekend on all of its used games priced under $20.

The promotion has already begun and runs through the weekend, ending on Sunday, April 20. GameStop notes it's recently dropped the price of many of its used Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games to $20 or less, making them eligible for this deal. A number of Wii U games are included, but no Xbox One or PlayStation 4 games fall under the $20 mark.

Among the games you'll be able to pick up with this deal are Halo 4 ($13), Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ($7), Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition ($19 on the PS3, $13 on the 360), Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance ($18 on the PS3 and 360), Red Dead Redemption ($10 on the PS3 and 360), ZombiU ($20), and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ($7 on the PS3, $10 on the 360).

While PC games are exempt from a preowned deal, Origin is currently holding a big sale on many of its digital PC games, including Battlefield 4 and Titanfall.

I just went to Gamestop hoping to get a free game from this offer until I was ready to checkout and the manager told me the rule is that ALL games have to be under $20.  Meaning, you can't go in and buy a $22 and $30 game and then get a $17 game free.  WTF????   So I had to walk out empty handed.  Stupid sale if you ask me.

Gamestop: Desperate, doesn't know how to get the crap off the shelves

Yeah but Gamestop will make you pay for the two expensive used games and give you the dirt cheep one for free. I know their marketing and bad customer service i will pass...In other news has any one tried the used games idea Wallmart came up with?

I took advantage of this and was lucky because the games I was looking for were old and didn't cost much.

Gamestop haters. Gamestop haters everywhere. Apparently they're the worst company ever because their return policy sucks. *sigh* Too many idiots in this world.

Gamestops "deals" are getting more and more pathetic.  Remember when they did deals like this every month?  Except it was on ALL used games, not just the old games they can't sell anymore cause no one wants them.


I'm not sure they grasp the fact that they aren't just competing with other retail stores.  They are also competing with platforms like PSN, GoG, and Steam.

This isn't much of a sale.  If they'd have added games over $20, I'd jump at the chance...  but with only less than $20 games, I already own what's good...  and store supplies of cheap "hidden gems" is almost non-existant since PS4 and XBOX ONE took up much of the floor space.  No, sadly not much of a sale...

Did Gamestop pay you to write this article?

I just bought Metal Gear Rising for $20 brand new and have to say that it is the most disappointing piece of crap I've ever spent money on.

Other website have sales for 1/2 off on PS4 and Xbox One games while Gamestop has old used games for under $20 wow.

I've thought about getting ZombiU for quite a while.  For just $20 (or free) it might be worth picking up.

Nothing says Easter better than an old game for a console I don't own anymore. It's like UBER Black Friday.

I just got 6 games for $33. I normally buy off eBay, but I just saves $20 going to gamestop. Learn what a sales means....

"Gamestop will make you pay for the two expensive used games and give you the dirt cheep one for free."


They have no control over what you pick as the free game you basement dwelling idiot. For example, If you buy the $20 zombiu and $19 fallout 3, you can get $18 MGSR for free

@teller76567 Who cares what ones they make you pay for. I bought 6 games for $50 on Friday. As for customer service I have never had a bad experience at the shop closest to where I live.

@IndremaLover  I still go there when this one dude, Cory is working. He never asks me about preorders or disk insurance. If he's not there, I turn around and leave.

@TheWatcher000  not to mention the Rewards points.  Trade in 2 years of them for stuff like a Zelda poster and Bioshock coffee mug.  I'll pass.

@DiverseGamer  If you were hoping for a traditional MGS kind of game... I understand your disappointment... but the game is actually supposed to be pretty good for those who like that particular genre.  It's not really my kinda game either, though.

@DiverseGamer  Lol...Did you know what you were buying? I love that game, but it's definitely not for everybody.

@leakingdogmilk @teller76567 Exactly. It's the same buy/get free process that most, if not all, retailers follow. The least expensive item is the one that ends up free, so it's up to you what "dirt cheep" game you get.

@thissonicboom Is MGSGZ any good i have been waiting to see and hear real feed back from real people that care if a game sucks or is good. It's hard to trust reporters in the game industry they get paid to say things. Like over hype TitanFall or resident evil 6 so on and so forth...

@teller76567 @thissonicboom  From what my friends have told me, everything about it is great but it's way too short to match the price tag. However, I've heard others argue that there is enough content to make up for the price in side missions. I myself wouldn't buy it unless I see it in the bargain bin or it's bundled with Phantom Pain.
