I'm not sure where you're getting $10 at GS for Rhythm Heaven Fever, as it's been reported as $8 base...

...unless you traded it in with at least three other games for :ps3:, :360:, :wii:, :3ds:, or Vita, in which case you would have gotten 25% extra credit for them--$8 + $2 (25% of $8) = $10 for RHF.

What's the point of even flipping anything for less than $3 profit? That's barely covering the taxes.

:lol: I gotta agree with spmahn for once. I never flip anything unless I'm making 100% more than I paid AT LEAST.

For Rhythm Heaven Fever I would go the eBay route if you're into that.

Less than 2 weeks ago these were selling in the $25-$33 range. Sure there's a bunch of cheap copies up at the moment, but you can still do better than trading it in. The price should bounce back after a bit, once all the impatient sellers dump their copies.

They are also offering free fixed price listings through the 18th, so it doesn't hurt to try.

The select GS stores competing with BB are going to be having 50% trade in bonus starting this friday & next week b2g1. This pattern should alternate for several weeks.

Nope, just a no-strings-attached 50% bonus applied to whatever you trade in. :)

Well I guess we should start rounding up all the good BBY>GS flips.

So the stores that did the b2g1 over the last few weekends should be doing the 50% as well?

I just got my b2g1 new games welcome BBY coupon so maybe there will be something useful there. it expires in Nov so its not that useful for me.

Here's what I scored from the Kmart b2g1free so far:

Littlebigplanet 2 collector's edition ps3 $37
Resistance 1 & 2 + dualshock 3 bundle $36
Resistance 1 & 2 + dualshock 3 bundle FREE

God of War Origins + dualshock 3 bundle $45

Would be nice if I had a Kmart near me. I'd keep a DS3 and flip the rest of the stuff.

I think this thread is not very active because people do not really want gamestop credit. The gamestop to best buy thread took off because of the @gamer deals.

We need to combine the threads into a single thread I feel. Not sure who would want to do it, but if its a wiki thread shouldn't be an issue updating it.

Frankly there is a ton of talk about BBY>GS as that is how most people increase their credit.

Cash>GS>BBY>GS>BBY>GS etc. Start with X and increase to Y by going to multiple trade in places.

I hope this thread gets some more action. For now though it seems like there aren't that many good BBY>GS flips even with the 50% bonus TIV at a few GS's this weekend. Need a good @gamer sale or 50% at all GS and B2G1 at BBY at the same time again.

If you can PM Best Buy's Mass Effect online price of $8 in store, you can then trade it in to Gamestop for $10 + bonuses. With the 50% and the 10%, I got $16 for it, and I traded 2. One yesterday, one today.

I've done this once already, but maybe I can do it again with the other two copies I saw at my local BBY.

...At least, I can do it the next time GS is doing the 50% extra promo since that ended today. #-o

no, it just isn't popular because atm there aren't many flips to GS.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Thank you so much ChunLiBarbie. This was great. As soon as I read this post, I went to BB to buy 2 Halo Reaches and a Pokemon game. That became about $75 worth of GS credit, which became a lot BB credit thanks to a gamestop store specific B2G1. Also thanks again to everyone who contributes to this thread and the OP.
