Golden Compass (PS3) might be a good one if it's still $10 (->$7/$8.75 @ FYE). If it's dropped to $7, even better.

Also Rockstar Table Tennis (Wii) is a $10->$10/$12.50 from BBV->FYE

Thanks Jar. I think what im gonna do is look at Secondspin and sort by the highest sell values and backtrack from there.

I found out that Super Swing Golf Season 2 is $5 -> $10/$12.50 as well.

I went into Fye and damn their trade in values suck. I used to be able to go their and built up 400 worth of credit buying stuff from Gamestop. I tried GTA 4 for the 360 and they offered me 8.00 for it and they are selling it user for 49.99

The bad thing about their TIV system is that they are usually based on quantity throughout the whole chain. So if they get "too many" between FYE, Sam Goody, Wherehouse, their websites, etc. they will drop the TIV.

The $5 -> $18.75 flip held for a few years til people started trading it into Secondspin. Once Secondspin got 9 copies, they dropped it to $3 TIV.

Welp, the Trade 2 Wii games get $30 bonus has warranted some very nice flips. Basically, if you trade in 2 Wii games that get $3 or more (basically just about every game on sale with the Blockbuster B1G1) you get a $30 bonus on top of your TIV if you buy a select Wii game. I've found the following flips (values below are credit, subtract 25% for cash or add 20% for pre-order):

Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader: $0 -> $15.93
Allstar Cheer Squad: $10 -> $20
My Fitness Coach: $0 -> $15.93
Skate Heroes City: $-10 (they pay you $10 extra GS credit) -> ? (not listed on secondspin)

Basically on top of the values above you also get your credit at GS, so you can essentially turn $10 BB credit into $10+ GS credit and $16-20 FYE.

Very cool, thanks!


Hm. We need a thread linking to this, the BBV/GR thread, Gs thread, and a GC thread in the OP and create a general flipping thread. ;)
