Will they take a PS3 console? If so, how much is it worth?

Those were all out of stock as well. My Sears used to carry WWtBaM, but all 12+ copies were cleared out once they dropped below $10.

Speaking of Sears, this stock checker worked for me.

This will be $3.97 in store. Got another today.

Aren't you the guy that is like under 16 and had to have his parents in order to trade in (not trying to be mean, so if you are not that guy, sorry about that)? How exactly does a 15 year old make contacts in industrial china?


16,

It's the internet.

Contacts makes it seem crazier than it really is, it's really just a website anyone can use.

We had one lady take about 50 or so games to a bathroom and.. yeah.

2 points per dollar (base TIV).

I stand corrected ... I guess I did get RZ credit for Friday's trade in of :ps3: MJ The Experience and :ps3: Ben 10

Base TIV was $13

Traded in my copy of :360: Kingdoms of Amalur for $25 then turned around and used the @Gamer coupon to get me a pre-owned copy for ~$22. Best Buy wants to pay me $3 to keep my game? Sounds good to me.

Hmm, why did you get the extra 13? Are you silver or something? I only get 2x, so I would get 26 for the same transaction.

Here is an example:

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

It's been quite some time since I last traded in any games at BB and was just wondering if I would be able to trade in multiple copies of a game?

Apparently the trade-in policy has changed a bit. According to the OP, BB used to allow 3 copies of the same game, but people are now reporting that only 1 copy of a game per system is allowed (eg. no multiples). Is this possibly YMMV?

If anybody could elaborate that would be great.

Jeez. It wasn't the ONLY trade-in I did. I traded in a few other games. This was just an extra $3 on top of it and Best Buy's copy was in better shape than mine.

I'm not going to drive to Best Buy just to make $3, but if I can make an extra $3 on top of the other $60 worth of trade-ins with little to no effort, I will. Aside from that, it also gave me an excuse to use up that coupon.

Uh...it's in the OP:

I went to a store to do a trade-in and they asked for a Best Buy receipt. WTF?
Some stores are required to have receipts to accept trade-ins, again this is due to local Pawn shop laws and could vary from city to city. You can always check if the store(s) near you require a receipt on Best Buy's trade-in site.

I asked about a month ago when I saw reports of a 1 per year limit and they told me there was no change.
Two weeks later a girl denied a couple duplicates citing a 1 per year policy, and when I came in another day a third person recognized the games I was trying to trade in and told me he knew I had been denied previously, and again cited 1 per.
Today I traded stuff in and the girl apologized to me saying she was wrong about the policy and she had read somewhere that it was 1 per, but the website still says 3 and she was wrong.

Based on this and all the other reports, I would guess Best Buy has changed the policy and they're doing a terrible job of communicating it.
