Uh...not to sound mean, but where have you been? IATCG has said several times that he was banned from GS because he would trade in 10-12 HDMI cables at a time among other things that I can't recall right now. :booty:

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.

Late but...

@Kingworm, I say if you're gonna do something, just complain. I wouldn't say stop going there. But yeah, complain cause they can't treat you like that. You didn't do anything wrong and you shouldn't have to feel like a villain in their store. Especially didn't need all those eyes for your girlfriend like she was gonna hurt somebody.

One thing you could do is those surveys after you buy something that are on the receipt. From my friend, they are sent to higher up people and if there is a issue, usually sent to a store manager or DM. I did it once and got a call back where I explain my problem. Only way I know how to get heard. You mentioned a friend working there? You could probably ask them the best way to file a complaint. This is what I would do.

I'm just glad I got the cute asian chick to help me out last nite :) at the Nashua,NH store.


Another NH CAG! I dont hit the Nashua BB much but last time I did the Asian chick was working as well.

kingwormer, I would file a complaint if I were you. Making your girl feel uncomfortable like that and saying you're a felon is pretty inexcusable, so if you have nothing to hide I would make some kind of report against the store, make them squirm a little bit :D

best buy gift card scratch off things are the worst. Use a coin, not a key. The last two of the PIN were wiped right off.

Literally spent at least 2 hours total, in two stores to just get the gift card cashed out and replaced.

How much were you getting per cable?? I've got spare ones I need to get rid of.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Has anyone ever had any luck getting a trade in receipt fixed? My wife traded some games for me today and I noticed they missed one game completely, gave me credit for a DS not Wii version of another game, and of course screwed up Rock Band Unplugged. Just wondering if anyone has ever tried to get something like that fixed and had any luck. It adds up to a little over $30 but I am wondering if it will be worth my time to drive there and try to get it fixed.

Something similar (though not as bad as your situation) happened to me once:

After doing a trade-in at a BBY I don't normally visit (but was near due to running errands), I noticed that one game from the bunch I brought in hadn't been included in the transaction. I called that store the next morning and explained the situation, and thankfully the traded-in games hadn't been shipped out yet so they were able to recover the game that wasn't included and set it aside for me so I could come to Customer Service, pick up the game, and trade it in for real.

You should definitely go back to that store or try calling it, because it's not good for them if they have the games from your trade-in labeled incorrectly or not processed at all--their used game inventory will get all screwed up if you don't bring the matter to their attention. Just be patient and explain what happened (maybe even point out how it's in their best interest to help you out so their inventory doesn't get messed up) and hopefully things will work out for you. :D I can't speak for the Rock Band Unplugged aspect of your situation, though, since it sounds like they just attributed a "generic trade-in" label for that one and as such, you can't really argue for that one in terms of inventory accuracy.

It's worth a shot. I had a bunch of games ring up wrong last year, left a note with the kid who did the trade and the gaming supervisor called me back to offer to fix it. I forgot about it but she remembered when I went in a few weeks later. I think she only remembered me because I traded in so many games and she was very thankful that I chose her store. Little did she know I had brought as many games to 4 different stores LOL. She re-did the wronly credited games and did some manual adjustment to make it right and gave it to me in a normal trade card.
I was willing to suck it up as a cost of business and forgot about it but she reminded me of it when i was in there. It was maybe only $15 or so.

Just wanted to post an update on my trade in situation from last night.
http://www.cheapassg...&postcount=4555

Went back tonight and asked to speak to a store mgr. and explained to her what happened. So she went back to the video game kiosk and looked up the game I disputed and pulled it out of the counter. She rerung it and gave me the $13 on a giftcard w/o any hesitation. Glad I did look into it, because I figured I was out that credit.

I think I will give it a try tomorrow and see what happens. As for Rock Band Unplugged they gave it a generic game sku but they did type the name of the game next to it. So hopefully if I show them the correct sku they can fix it. At any rate it seems like some people have had a decent amount of success so I'll give it a try.

I guess what really irked me was, it really wasn't me using her. She was dumping off some of her crappy old Wii games. Had absolutely nothing to do with me. I even told the manager that when I confronted her. I told her it was her trading in her old games. She then said "how was I supposed to know that, we can just ban her also". I told her, maybe if you walked over and asked? Or had the people you sent over to ask, that's how you would know? She got pissed when I said this.

I am done shopping there, mainly because ofmhowmitmmade my lady feel. And yes I know the CaG "motto" lol, but that wasn't this case.... At this time. I guess I really wanted to post my experience to see if anyone had had similar situations? And or if anyone had actually gotten in trouble.

I know people on here have made way way way more than I did. So was really just trying to ease my mind, and vent, and let people know the treatment I got.


I really do recommend saying something. I know in the past I've sent in a complaint online, and through the Best Buy forums when I felt it was necessarily, and in most cases got a legitimate response. If the manager suspects you of illegal activity than she should go the proper channels of it. Treating other people that she associates with you, and bad mouthing you to her employees (clearly not knowing said employee knows you) is at the very least unprofessional and not how a manager should act.

Read the old BBY threads if you you really want the full story. You did nothing illegal, so why are you even worried? "A clear and innocent conscience fears nothing." The employees saw something they deemed bad right in front of their eyes and are powerless to do anything about it. So they say some stupid shit to deter you. They aren't handling it the best way, but they are just trying to protect their company. You really want them to potentially lose their jobs over it? They're not bad people. You know the reasons behind their actions. They aren't haphazardly fucking over random customers. Oh wait, you prefer indifferent, glassy-eyed employees who just go through the motions ringing you up. The ones that don't ask questions or are incapable of being pro-active. Those employees are great, aren't they?


Hardly what anyone is saying. Her behavior would be unacceptable even as a standard blue-shirt employee, but as a manager she is also setting an example for her store and employees. Again, there are proper channels she should be going through if she suspects illegal activity, falsely stating that a customer is a felon (in a manner that makes it appear she knows this to be a fact) and going on about a customer to her employees as she supposedly did, as well as the way she treated the girlfriend is completely and totally unacceptable from a manager level. Let me tell you, employees who have managers that are dicks to employees rarely give amazing customer service themselves.

Also, gave it a shot yesterday and I'm still banned. Funny story, the guy working the counter just suggested I have a friend or family member bring in the trades for me. :lol:

Just a heads up guys, It looks like the Best Buy Trade estimator just updated. Wii game trade in prices are starting to crash, so if you have Wii games you better trade them in quick. I was going to trade in like 5 or 6 Wii games soon and i just lost at least 2 dollars on each game just now. For example The conduit was 6 dollars this past morning and now it is only 4. Wii Music was 6 and is now 4. Carnival games was 5 now 4...
