I think they have caught on to as at Fye. I went in today to trade in boxsets from Big lots. I had the following
Flintstones Season 2 and Season 5
Pebbles BamM Complete Show
Wacky Races complete show
Top Cat complete show
Poppy Sailor 1933-1938
Dasterdly and Mutterly
and they offered me 18.25 with the bump and 22.50 total for all of them sets. I heard them saying in the background about Big lots and trading in too many sets. I noticed when they were ringing stuff up that money was disappearing. I ended up taking my dvds back home but they took my brown bag and said they had to since they were out of them and people were reusing them.
Who told you those titles traded in for good money?

Are you upset that you can't pick up a copy of the Dallas box set to find out who killed J.R. Ewing? Or hoping to catch up on the Dukes of Hazard? Wanting to see what your parents liked about Knots Landing?
What do you care if Bezerker picked up multiple copies of bad 80s soap operas? The ONLY reason why anyone on CAG would want these is to flip at FYE...simple as that. This isn't Cheap Ass DVD Box Sets of the 80s Collector (CADBSOT8C).
Those are some pretty lame insults. You should also refrain from speaking in such definitive terms. Not everyone here is the same age and has the same interests. Everyone has different things that entertain them and different reasons for buying certain items. So no, flipping is not the only reason to buy any of these. Some people may actually enjoy some of these shows and would be extremely interested in picking them up at such a price.

Picked up Watchmen & Coraline on Blu-ray for $18.90 each, both also had a $5 MIR. Considering the Cash to credit conversion, its a great deal.
What was the base price? As I recall, they were preselling Watchmen for $28 or so. 25% off is $21. How did you get $18.90?
Edit: ok you used your BSP. So the calculation goes:
$27.99 - 10% BSP - 25% coupon = $18.90 + tax. Minus $5MIR = deal!

Some prices arent accurate from secondspin to fye. I went to trade in brothers in arms hells highway for ps3 because it said i would get 9 bucks on second spin and fye offered me one dollar. Wont be headed there again
I've found that sometime it's regional. The online sources (secondspin, wherehouse, etc.) are national. It's happened to me that the TIV dropped vs. the online TIVs or they didn't take anymore because they already have too many copies on hand.

Is secondspin accurate?
Do they take multiple copies?
Do you have to have the bag filled to the brim?
The reason is a Big Lots out of town has like +20 copies of Roots: The Complete Collection, and I wanna get Bleach season 3....or some other anime.

I didn't do any of these profitable flips I'm reading about (no Big Lots around here)but the guy doing trade ins gave me a hard time when I tried to trade in anime starter sets. The values were already low, and he was trying to reduced them even further. He messed up when he did it on Saint Seiya Collection (which came with all the discs) and I called him out on it (he scanned the value of it just a few minutes earlier).

All stores were notified back in mid July the deal is running til at least the September promo book comes out (usually mid August). Up to the store to actually be competent, as usual.
I've been waiting for this deal to pop back up, but haven't been paying attention. I didn't see this thread until just now and fye is not on my normal shopping route..
