FYI: Power Rangers: Super Legends SHOULD get $7 trade value @ the Transworld chains(Sam Goody, FYE, Second Spin, Wherehouse) for trade-in.

http://www.secondspi...y=power rangers

Best part about the Transworld chains is that you can get a rough estimate of potential trade values from the SecondSpin and Wherehouse websites, www.secondspin.com and www.wherehouse.com .


For those who are new to Transworld stores (I know that IAmTheCheapestGamer is already aware of this) any game trade-ins need to be complete (art and manual) and be pristine (and in some cases match a specific UPC number). They won't take them otherwise.

Blockbuster quality seems to be about equal to Gamestop in my experience, so finding complete, near-mint games becomes really hit or miss.

For those looking for any BB -> FYE trade-ins, here is a list of possible XBOX ones. The list is a week old, though, so some prices may have changed.

Some confirmed BB $ -> FYE/SecondSpin Trade-in quote:

Hitman Blood Money (XBOX) $9.99 -> $5
KoF 02/03 (XBOX) $6.99 -> $5
Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo (XBOX) $6.99 -> $7
Xyanide (XBOX) $6.99 -> $5

After Burner Black Falcon (PSP) $14.99 -> $7
Brunswick Pro Bowling (PSP) $6.99 -> $6
Burnout Dominator (PSP) $9.99 -> $6
Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles (PSP) $9.99 -> $9
Crash of the Titans (PSP) $14.99 -> $7
Killzone Liberation (PSP) $9.99 -> $6
Manhunt 2 (PSP) $14.99 -> $9
Mercury Meltdown (PSP) $6.99 -> $3.25
PaRappa (PSP) $9.99 -> $6
Pro Stroke Golf (PSP) $6.99 -> $5
Star Trek Tactical Assault (PSP) $6.99 -> $5
Virtua Tennis 3 (PSP) $6.99 -> $9

BBV TIV of Octomania (Wii) - $23 :-D SAHWEEEET!


I hope your right I'm planning another Octo run before work today. Tried calling four BB's in my area for TIV and they wouldn't give them over the phone. Two said they wouldn't in person if I didn't have the game with me. Argh...

I can confirm that Octomania is still $23. I traded in two.

Got pretty lucky with stuff at BB today. I guess the Gamerush had just converted a bunch of rentals over because I found a complete Twilight Princess (GC), Contra 4 (DS), and some other good flips.


^ yep :D Credit or -20% for cash. I got $21 for Ass Creed (360) a few months back


Wrong, its the TIV shown on Secondspin.com for cash or 25% more for credit.

Thanks for posting. On my way to work stopped at BB used 10% coupon to get Octo for $9.XX and stopped at a GS and picked up another Octo used. This should take me over $100 credit at Blockbuster.

Not really a off topic question but more out of curiosity how does everybody manager their BB credit? Do you keep your credit on a gift card they can update? Do people hold their credit in the systems at each individual BB?

Getting back into gaming I have so many gift cards and credit at places I'm having a hard time keeping track of everything. Mostly I have a CAG notebook I use (deals/drops/penny guides/giftcards+credit) but it's still hard to keep track of my blockbuster credit.

So you buy octomania, trade it to Blockbuster....then what?


Are you serious? Getting $23 for your initial outlay of $10 isnt good enough?

I ran into a problem trading it in at a BB in NY (Long Island). They said they wouldn't take it.


You probably have a lot of the following in your area a)hoarders, b)lurkers, c)both. And they probably dont know how to take advantage of a deal without ruining it for everyone else.

Is anyone noticing a common theme with our fellow man these days such as the "I got mine so :Fuck: the next guy?"

Well you have to open a trading account at BBV then once you trade them you can buy the used games they sell and flip them to GS or you can buy the sealed new games that some may have. Like mine has God of War for the PSP and I might flip one for that, or some carry various DS games, or Soul Caliber 4. See the front page for new games that might be at BBV.

I keep all my credit on a value card so I can shop at any BB. You never know when you will run into something you want to buy. ;) Works just like a gift card. Just ask them to put the credit on a value card when processing your trade. If they screw up and leave it on your account, they can still add it on later like a gift card reload. Note that they max out at $500 each.

What the hell am I supposed to do with blockbuster credit, their availability is terrible.


Then why on Earth did you click on a Blockbuster thread if your just going to bitch about it...plus alot of people are turning BBV credit into GS credit just read the thread, or even just the first post.

I agree about availablity but their trade-in prices are good and for used selection some games do have nice prices. Also at times to be able to get double your investment in returns at BB that is another draw.

SPEND IT. There has to be something there you want to buy for 50c on the dollar. You could use the credit to rent movies, games, buy merchandise, etc. If the selection is terrible, then I guess this deal just is not for you. But for the rest of us, I guess it qualifies as a hobby to turn some credit into a lot of credit.

I am not trying to be a dick, but by the way you post, it sounds like flipping might not be cut out for you.

Not sure about the 360 version, but the Wii version is worth $9 per Segasonic01.

For those that didn't know. Sega Superstars Tennis (PS3) is $10.40 used after edge/10% coupon. BB Pays $23 for it. But as IO says, theres probably not many left as its been a high ticket flip for a few months.


I seriously doubt there are any other flippers around me - it just isn't a game they ever had a lot of used stock for.

What the hell am I supposed to do with blockbuster credit, their availability is terrible.


Well, a year ago I would have agreed with you, but now they have plenty of new games and are doing preorders for all the big releases. Surely there's a new game coming out that you wouldn't mind paying half for to get the day of release? Or you can build it up a bit more and get a DS or a 360/PS3/Wii. But if you think their stock is terrible now you should have seen them last year (when they carried no new systems or games). And hopefully you are talking about regular Blockbusters and not Gamerush, because they've always had a decent selection - nothing compared to Gamecrazy or Gamestop, but certainly enough to spend cheap credit on.

Just got back from BB and found an something interesting. They had one my copy of Octomania from Friday out for sale with a price tag of $14.99. So, I'm thinking that they really do drop prices on Sundays and Tuesdays now. If you've got any Octo plans for the coming week, you best finish up tomorrow and wait for a TIV on Tuesday.

It was funny...I traded in an Octomania today at a BBV, and the guy paused and said "Now this is interesting, we're actually giving you more than we charge for it" (TIV was $23). Of course, since the TIV was still listed as $23, he just laughed, called me lucky, and gave me the credit. Now what would be funny is if I bought it back with another game (for the B1G1 since I guess it would qualify) and then traded it in again.
