I was able to flip most of my GS credit back to BB by trading in Mortal Kombat Vita and Ninja Gaiden 3 (PS3 & Xbox 360). The irony was MK Vita dropping to $10 today and I bought it again today. This trade in was great for me. It helped with the pain of buying that NG3 CE on the day it was released. :applause:

I was told that same lame story at one BB untill I pointed out the FAQ on the web page:

http://www.bestbuy.c...100050022&h=504


Question #12 The Limit is 3 per title per platform.

The FAQ can be found from the BB Home Page, at the bottom: PRODUCT SUPPORT/Trade in Center/Additional Resources/Frequently Asked Questions


Well I just got out of work and I wasnt thinking straight. Im just gonna leave it alone, ONLY this time. Guy was scared he was going to get fired if he let me trade in both the copies of MK that I had. I wanted to laugh at him, but it would of been an asshole thing to do.

anyone know what BB does with a trade in after its done? do they ship it off ? just box it up? or do they hang on to it for a few days? any info would be great

Game reps I talked with said they get shipped out to be resurfaced (if needed) and repackaged by a different company. Not sure how long they hold onto the trade-ins though if they require a certain quota before shipping items off for repackaging.

ok thanks, I traded my MK vita in tonight, and apparently it keeps part of the save data tied to the cart, because after I was able to get my hands on a new copy later on, all my progress was gone

that faq was for the old policy, though. i had no problems with any of my best buys until today. i was rejected the same as everyone else today so i had to go to a second best buy to trade in my second copy. their policy suddenly changed within the last day or so. until now, they have been chill with my multiples. i've never pushed the envelope and only traded 2 per system at most. i was never rejected until today.

I had two duplicate ds games today and had no problems whatsoever. In fact I asked her if that was ok and she said sure. When I comes to trade ins my Bb has it shit down. Trade about 20 games today and was in and out in under 15 minutes and it took longer since I preordered borderlands and blops 2. I think her name was Ashley and she seemed to be a gamer herself. She also handled my 1st trade in at the start of the promo and I think we got through with my 60 games trades in under a half an hour and that was mostly because another guy started and he was slower, when she took over she was quick and the only that slowed her up was stopped to find the hundred sheets plus of paper that she needed to print off the pawn slip.

i wonder what went wrong with my two stores. maybe and overzealous district manager is trying to ruin the trade-ins here. in any case, it will be very tough for me to trade in 2 copies per system on the same day for now on.

I was able to trade in 3 vita copies of MK along with 2 other games. The guy doing the trade mentioned the 1 per console limit but I mentioned the limit of 3 per console per year on the website. He said the system probably hasn't updated yet and said he would try and do all 3. The system didn't bring up any 1 copy limit flags so he ran the trade through. Spent just about $50 at GS and ended up with $113.

Gonna hate to see this promo go: I was late to the party, but still managed to get about $650 in store credit over the last 2 days. I hope they at least inflate the values a little to compensate...:(

I think there is going to be an adjustment. They updated the hot titles list pic but not the values. So I assume once they load in the updated values, it'll be recalculated. They would have just updated the values in hot titles section if they weren't going to adjust.

*edit*
I'm not expecting much. Maybe $3-4 on the higher value games to make them $30 after promo.

Ding, ding, ding.

New TIV's are live. $32 tops w/ Unlocked. Mid range stuff is probably going to suck hard compared to the 100% but newer stuff is more or less the same. MW3 is falling.

Well, I got ~$750 and I'm holding to trading in only 1 per title...granted, it was a lot of freaking titles (nearly all of which start with "shovel" and end with "ware"), but still. :lol:

Yeah I traded 66 unique games in June for a total of $769.65. In the end those 66 games cost me $12.11. I had some bad trades from games before my CAG days. Removing those 6 games meant I have 60 games for $724.50 with a profit of $161. It was a good month.:D

This sale was so good. I got at LEAST $200 in credit. Today was the best. I traded in $90 worth of games and then got the PS Move bundle price matched down to $70...turned right around and traded in the games (Deadmund and Sports Champions) for $16, and then got a navigator controller price matched off Amazon for $22.

Earlier this month I walked out with $130 of credit.

From what I've seen, only hot titles updated. The rest stayed the same, could be legit but it's a big loss on the older titles I was trying to playthrough.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

One thing I gotta mention about the trade in system is that even when they lowered the limit to 3 per title per console per year the system would allow copies over that amount, whether they were in the same transaction or not as I went over the limit myself at least twice on a couple of games.

So if you're expecting the system to bring up a warning about the current limits for multiples I just have to say not to rely so heavily on the system to block you and keep track of what you've traded in yourself.

Has Best Buy documented the rumored updated trade limits anywhere? Their FAQ still says 3 per title per console. No mention of 3 per title across all consoles or the supposed 50 game limit. I traded in over 90 just in June, and another handful yesterday with no problem.
