I really don't care if my passport gets banned. I just need to get rid of all these B2G1 wii games from gamestop before then LOL. Best Buy should be like Gamestop and "take on all comers". If they just fixed their TIVs during promos flipping would not be an issue. Then again this is the company that just sent me almost 20 $5 codes for items backordered. Quite a few of my b2g1 orders got me 2 of those codes.


i really wish i would of gotten in on that lol though that is awesome customer service....but i do have to wonder why they havent fixed their inventory system.

Is the TIV down to 50% now? OP has a headline of 100%, but underneath, the subtext says 50%.

Passports? That's a new. I thought since they take your fingerprint it doesn't matter if you are using another form of ID?


Not every BB does that. Mine doesn't. They just wanted to see my license.

Sorry for typo, don't know how it took this long for someone to spot it/mention it, but fixed now. Unfortunately I update the OP from my phone a lot.

Sweet. It looks like I can trade in some games today and get about $72 for 5 for them, including two that I got from either DOTD's or that gaming blowout for less or just about break even.:D

After the 100% bonus & GCU, I should be getting the following:

All :ps3:

Neverdead-$10.50($.09 to 'rent' it for a month from the gaming blowout:D)
Disney Universe-$10.50(paid $8 from a DOTD)
Dead Rising 2-$12.60(paid $8 on clearance @ Target with a pp Visa converted from BB credit;))
Dead Rising 2: Off The Record-$12.60(had BB PM it to I think $20 before that was the MSRP, losing on this one:bomb:)

And the biggun:

Saint's Row The Third-$25.20(paid $40 in cred from Amazon, played the hell outta it though;))

That's what I was told as well, which gives me about a month to blow through the three games I picked up earlier(Prototype 2, Sleeping Dogs & Darksiders II) and maybe even give my one buddy at least P2 and DS2 to try finishing as well. Although knowing my luck he'll procrastinate like the last time I told him to do a speed run through a game he wanted to play that I picked up.:bomb:

Hopefully their tiv's remain the same as they are now, since then I can make a whopping $1 something in profit for playing all three within that time frame.:lol:

Does anyone else's stores have them trade their games in at the Geek Squad counter? This seems weird to me, when they have a Gaming Counter with a sign that says Game Trade-in as well.

I especially enjoyed being sent there with a trade in and then having to go to a separate kiosk to preorder something. Well I would have had I had more time, since the Geek Squad guy was taking a while (understandably so) helping a man with his broken laptop and after 10-15 minutes I really needed to get going to work.

This is becoming more common. I think that Best Buy is phasing out the independent gaming counters (about a year after they went out of their way to incorporate them). I've seen two stores getting a new remodel, which seems to be taking a sort of Mac store vibe to it, and in both of them the gaming counter appears to be getting the axe. Least that's what it looked like/I remember.

Before they started hiring the gaming reps to specifically do trade-ins you used to always have to go to customer service/Geek Squad at my closest two stores. Since then I've only had to do a single trade up at customer service and that only when they couldn't find the gaming rep to do them. One of the managers' I interviewed with last year for a job with them did my trade in last time.

At my closest store, the security guy standing/sitting by the front doors got the axe or at least his desk did. According to one of the managers the LP people are milling about the store now instead of just slapping hot pink BB stickers on your trades when you bring them in the door or checking receipts if your item wasn't properly deactivated before trying to exit the store.

I just came back from BB doing my first trade-in since half a year ago. I traded in 17 games and got a $392 gift card. One of the employees told me that I didn't get the highest; someone else traded in 40 games that totaled out to be $600. Time to start my preorders with these BB credit.

The Store in El Centro, California currently does not accept trade-ins because there's a problem with the signature capturing device. It's been like that for almost a week and i doubt they'll have it ready before saturday.

How did you get it for $10? The coupon was $30 and the game was $50.

For whatever reason, that isn't reflecting the current in-store price of $39.99 for The Witcher 2, since I checked the online page as soon as the new drop was mentioned and still saw $49.99, so it must be an in-store-only drop.

Traded in Modern Warefare 1 2 and 3 for $50 total... Wow.

Going back later this week to return Mortal Kombat and Resistance 1 2 and 3 for $38.

Before anyone says anything, I really didn't enjoy the Resistance games enough to beat them again (never played multi) and was too annoyed by the Modern Warfare multi, though that was fun for a few years.

I'll be honest...I'm surprised I'm not banned from trading cause I just realized I traded in Mass Effect 3 for Xbox 5 times...I've only started trading to Best Buy since April.

I didn't really keep track of what I was trading >_>

Man I just saw that I did not get my 10% from the trades I did today. It was only $3.20 but now it most likely won't post to my RZ account so I won't get the points either. The girl was new and I got distracted talking to another gaming rep about price matching TRU's 2 for $60. I even said to her to add the unlocked bonus and she said she would. Can't let your guard down one second with new people I guess. :)

I always check the paper with all the trade in values in case if anything dropped right at that moment or if the 10% got applied before I sign it.

I need to find my print out for my last trade in and make sure I got the 10%. I think I did looking at the total.

Nevermind, it has to be since it had change on it. And not ending in 0.25, 0.50 or 0.75.

So I guess to make sure you get the 10%, check the total. Even #= likely you didn't get it.
