i kind of got rip off 2day. i trade in assasins creed revelations for the ps3. i only got $2 after the 100% bonus. maybe it was becus i didnt have the manual. also i was told it was 3 per year limit per game. if this is no longer the case then i will be Banned from there soon becus i traded in two copies of batman becus i had one i beat and i gota nother as a birthday gift the guy said it was no prob.

Assassin's Creed Revelations for 360/PS3 has been $1 TIV for awhile now. Should always check the trade-in site before you trade in at BestBuy.

i know ur trying 2 help... but u come across as very hurtful and vicious. my smart phone was not working. well the phone was working but my internet would not connect at the time. and i didnt know u can check values online. so as far as im concerned they stole my money. i told the guy at gamestop and he said thats why u trade in there... anyway... i will still trade in at best buy becasue i have the gamer club unlocked and im not going to let that go to waste. and now that i know the values online im going to load off some games (not ps2 games cuz those only get 25 cents but i will get rid of crap like dragon age 2 becus i never liked it in the first place and they give more than anyone else).


I'll say it again.

I don't see how he's hurtful and vicious at all lol. Besides you can always just say no. They won't force you to trade-in your games.

Also, there is a Best Buy Game Trade-in app. You can just scan the barcodes or type in the game names and it will pull up the trade-in values. Something you can do quickly from home before going anywhere and without a computer.

C'mon dude.

You're taking this personal. Getting all emotional and shit.
All he said was check online.

That's why you read the FAQ.

Also it's not necessary to tell your life story on an internet forum. Particularly when no one is asking.

namispep, always make sure you either have the online value of the trade-in when you walk into BB or ask the trade-in rep if you think you're getting a bad deal. Don't let them give you a bad price, and dont get emotional because another user pointed this out to you in a perfectly reasonable manner

it's just my bro and sis are usually a bit busy partying, haha, last week i gave my bro a bag of games and thought he traded them in, but luckily he didnt as values for a few games jumped from 15->16 and none had fallen (none i had anyway) so i got an extra $12.xx from him being a slacker, haha. worked out well. bestbuy is like a minute drive from us and that's not a big deal and i get him some beer whenever he flips games for me, but we usually have to wait like 20 minutes for some blueshirt to finally come over and help us. oh wellz tho

same at my bb, the gaming section is like a ghosttown, during most of my visits to do trade in , or make game purchases. Either there is nobody working there , or just the lonely worker standing there like a mannequin with nothing to do. LMfao. Maybe it is a good thing your children cannot trade in yet, otherwise they would of gotten ban eventually, and blamed you for being a terrible father ,LOL, the sad part is i think i am the only guy who goes in to my local bb to trade in games, cuz some of the blueshirts at the gaming section already recognize me, and remembers some of the games i traded in previously

OMGZ they stoled your monies. I can't believe the best buy guy refused to tell you how much money you were gonna get for your trades and then made you sign the form agreeing to the trade. Then forced you to take the gift card without saying how much you were getting.

Have you contacted a lawyer? You should sue.

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.

He wasn't trying to come off as hurtful of vicious, I assure you. There are FAR more hurtful people on this board, and on the internet. Judging by your writing and maturity, I can only assume you are young.

As for AC:R trading in for $1. You weren't robbed. Robbery would be if the BB employee smacked you over the head and took your game for the trade-in program. Although hilarious, this is definitely not the case. Whenever you trade in anywhere you (or your parent) will sign, and agree to the prices listed. You are more than welcome refuse the prices and take your games elsewhere. For example, I will be taking my copy of AC:R to GameStop for their 50% extra bonus starting soon.

Don't worry though. Just as everyone who joins here you will learn, and be getting the best deals in no time. :D

your smartphone sounds like a dumbphone. you have to sign the trade in document before they give u a gift card, they even give you papers with each game's trade in value on it. its your fault for not reading the papers and signing away the rights to your games. don't blame best buy for your naivete.

Well, had a botched trade in.

For some reason, none of my phone numbers would take, so they asked me for my email address. After giving it to them, I asked to confirm if my GCU showed up, and he said yes (lie).

The game base TIV was $6. The transaction came up to $12 ... no 10% for GCU, which also means no RZ points.

I complained and they called a manager over who said that the 10% does not count since I got double value (lie). I told them I had done a half dozen trade ins during this period and always received the 10%. Manager said nothing could be done since transaction was completed. Manager did say they would take the $0.60 off a purchase ... so I picked up a movie, and they game me 10% off (ended up being $1 ... should have chosen something worth more).

One note ... Game rep said I could call in with my Trade In transaction # to get the RZ points credit. Anyone ever done this?

I've done this several times, usually they'll just hook you up with the missed dollar amount in rz points. By usually I mean every time. Call instead of emailing if you want it resolved anytime this month as they don't seem to be too together on the trade-in thing via email.

I need some help on this as well.

I am new to trading games, but the B2G1 at GS combined with this seemed like a good way to get some credit toward a new iPad.

I have now done 2 trade ins, both base values of about $109 (doubled to $218). Both times I have been told that there was "no way" to add the extra 10% for Gamer's Unlocked.

I think this also means I am not getting any RZ points for my trade-ins.....that would be in the neighborhood of 450 RZ points.

What do I have to do to get my RZ account added? They always tell me it is a "separate system"?

make them scan your rz card. on the same screen that shows the 100% bonus box (that they mark with a check), there is a box underneath that asks if the person trading the game is gcu/ and will add 10%. this box is greyed out though/looks like it won't work- ask them to check that box as well and it will go from greyed out to active. make sure before they start scanning games that they scan your rz/gcu card.
