To all looking for even money flips from BB back to GS:
As long as the "trade in a system, get $20 extra" promo is on, you can flip GBA SP's from BB to GS for even. Cost at BB = $39.99. Base trade in at GS = $20 + $20 bonus credit = $40
Correction - that is a possible flip from GAMERUSH to GS. Don't say BB - you know how that irks me
. I ain't never seen a GBA SP for sale at no BB.
Ok guys n' gals lets be smart on this new opportunity.
More than one manager has just shared with me this is being monitored...any thoughts Warner? (of course I feigned my usual ignorance...and was trading non duplicate titles)
I wish you'd be more specific. By "this" do you mean THIS particular thread, flipping in general, what? When you throw something out there like that please be specific! In reading through this thread I thought you must have meant the new GS Wii promo since that is the only "this" everyone is talking about. But then, how the hell would BB people monitor that
. So I figured you must mean this thread. But then again, who knows...
This is the first I've heard of the Wii coupon. I wish I hadn't bought FF Chocobo Tales last week. Oh well...
I went to a GS here blissfully ignorant of the new coupon. But I di manage to pick up a K&L and SST for $30.38 total (after Edge and 10% coupon) and traded them to a BB I had never been to before for $53. This is the second time when buying K&L that the GS dude has tried to talk me out of it because it is apparently such a bad game
. To get him to shut up about it I just told him I was buying it for someone else (at their request). He then reminded me of the 7 day return policy and to make sure my "friend" knows about that because they will surely hate the game. Classic...
This new BB had a bunch more titles on "clearance" than I'd seen at my local store. I could only write down a handful on the back of my trade-in slip, and I know some were mentioned by others (but got buried in all the flipping discussion). In any case, I'll add these to the OP:
Battle of the Bands $19.99
Blast Works $19.99
Boom Blox $39.99 ($29.99 and I'd buy it)
Mario Strikers Charged $39.99
Ninja Reflex $19.99
Sega Superstar Tennis $24.99 (so I'd expect trade-in on that to be low)
We Ski $19.99
Assassin's Creed $24.99
CoD 4 $54.99
Ratchet & Clank $49.99
Assassin's Creed $24.99
Burnout Paradise $29.99!
CoD 4 $49.99
Just to reiterate, these are NEW game prices and ought to be nation-wide, though I don't remember if anyone has verified that they got these "clearance" prices at a store not otherwise advertizing them that way. I really want to get Burnout Paradise, but being the cheapass that I am, I want to buy it back home with no sales tax
. That's probably dumb, though, as I don't remember seeing it much if at all during all my B1G1 flipping runs whereas this store in Tucson had 3 copies.
Another thing about this store - they had a TON of the good B1G1 flippable stuff (excepting Iridium and Power Rangers). It definitely looks like it was untouched by someone "in the know" during the perfect storm.
