I have seen this deal of 2 specific games plus £4.97for GTA V. But here's a or if not the cheapest way of doing it.

Great thing about shop to is the super (usually next day) delivery!

Gamestop are currently running a deal that states you can buy GTA V for £39.97, but by trading in two games using the enclosed envelope, you can recoup £35 of that price. Now the list is dubious to say the least, with a couple of games that are worth peanuts. While the T’s and C’s state that multiples of the same game aren’t allowed, head to ShopTo and buy Rayman Origins on Xbox 360 (£9.85) and Dead or Alive 5 on PS3 (£8.86) which fit the bill quite nicely. For those that don’t do maths, that’s just £18.71. A vital £18.71 investment that lets you recoup £35 from Gamestop, since both games appear on the company’s massive list of games included in the promotion.
So in summary;
Pre-order GTA V from Gamestop.
Buy both Rayman Origins (Xbox 360) and Dead or Alive 5 (PS3) from ShopTo.
Wait for GTA V to arrive from Gamestop.
Send Rayman Origins and Dead or Alive 5 back to Gamestop using the enclosed envelope.
Wait up to 10 days for your £35 to be refunded.
Your total outlay including the two games and the £4.97 that you don’t get back from Gamestop comes to just £23.68. An easy method that pretty much halves the price of the game, and even gives you a few free “rentals” in the process.

Seems like a doable plan. A bit of hassle but something to do if you want the cheapest of price.

Defiantly, its abit of hassle! Which I expect cold votes for that reason. I managed to pre order this from tesco for £30 around march. But the cheapest I've seen is £35ish lately to pre order.

I saw a post a month or 2 ago, listing the games. Didn't see a thread of how to get it the cheapest.

Shhh, you're not supposed to give away the best techniques!

I had been earmarking pre-owned titles for this offer, but they seem to have increased in price recently.
Plus there's a gamble on the condition of the titles.

Still can't decide if it's worth the hassle.

Cheers, ordered!

Do shopto normally dispatch stuff separately? I've had Rayman dispatched, but not dead or alive...

Yes I'm pretty sure they do. They have certain things aswel that dispatch a lot quicker than others. It does state usually. Like "order now despatched within 5 mins"

Ok cheers

Where do you get the envelope to send the games back. Never used GameStop but I guess its the envelope GTA will arrive in?

Your delivery from Gamestop will include an envelope in which to post the trade-in games.

I've not looked a the specifics for this but you'd have to hope that gamestop by the time GTA V is released don't update list to excluded the titles you've gambled on and bought.

EDIT This list will remain valid until this offer has ended.

it seems like a bit of a faff. It will probably be for sale for £25 soon after release any way. Some company will drop the price as a loss-leader and the rest will follow. Always happens
