I only got hit with a refurb fee once and it was when the store had a ton of copies of the particular game. The game itself was complete and in fine condition and I didn't even notice the $1 fee until I looked at my receipt. I'm assuming they did it because they had so many copies that they were actually piling on top of each other on the shelf so they probably just wanted it sent away. Even though it was only $1 it still kind of got me mad that they do that behind your back.

As in they don't take SvR 08 at all anymore or your disc was damaged/scratched to a point where they won't take it.


Disc was find. Employee told me he tried to ring it up and something came up on the computer saying they would lose money if they took it in.

That normally means they have put a refurb fee on the disc and it doesn't cover the TIV.

That's why I look at my receipt and/or ask if I'm being a charged a fee before leaving the store. If I'm charged a fee, then they damn well better re-do that transaction and remove the fee or give me my game back. That's why I know which stores around here to avoid and which to go to with questionable games(disc only, scratched up).

It's never come up as that at the stores around here. It may be something that they do in your state.

oh, i love the smell of a new thread!

but yeah, traded in a couple of games today. seems like a lot of the game TIVs are dropping. the drops i've encounted were about 1 or 2 bucks. also, found out that the DJ Hero 2 Bundle for 50 bucks (gamestops website) is also the same price in stores. so probably gonna pick that up.

This. And luckily for me, the closest store to me is one of the better ones in the area. It could possibly be because they know me, but a lot of times I see them do a double take when checking the discs, and then kinda shrug lol. A couple of the guys at that store don't even check the discs when I trade stuff in. Very cool.

Do you mean "we couldn't care less," because the way it is worded implies that you do, in fact, care.

I got hit with retarded refurb fees yesterday on nearly perfect discs.

Just do a lookup for any GS in the country and call there. Someone will get the values and MOST of the time, they all have the same TIV

Sorry for the oddball question. I see that a lot of people are complaining about phantom refurb fees on their games. I was wondering what the heck is that about. Is it a new policy thing, or just bad luck from stores with dumb employees?

I have about 22 games to trade in for the 50%, but if I'm going to get junkie refurb fees I might be better off trying with Amazon for some. Just wanted to be sure, thank you.
