The problem with the 10% GCU bonus is that it is now located at the bottom of the "cart" screen under the list of games. An uninformed rep will usually click on the big green button (forget what it says) after adding all the games and will not scroll down to see the GCU lookup. If he/she does scroll down and selects it, it will give the option to find your GCU info by phone #, email address or RZ member #. A box will pop up with your info. He/she clicks that and it will give you the 10% bonus AND populate the customer information (sans DL# info) If the rep doesn't scroll down to GCU section in the cart and hits the big green button, the next screen is "Customer Look Up", or something like that, which again has options to lookup info by either phone #, email address or RZ member id. THIS DOES NOT GIVE THE 10% GCU BONUS. I'm not sure if the rep has an option to go back to the cart after this point.

Long story short, have the rep scroll down after entering the last game and before clicking past the cart. Hope this help.

Excellent information kilmb! Thanks, I'll keep a note of that on my next trade-in. Granted, until they update their system again. :p

No problem. After hearing on here that they had a new system and bans were lifted I was in there every day for a weak and a half. Most times I could see the screen and a few times I taught untrained reps how to move through the process.

:lol::applause:The reps I usually bs with at BB are always like 'you really should get a job here cuz you know more than we do at times'.:-# That alone is scary(but hilarious at the same time) to me, that a regular customer could know more than someone who is paid to work for them.

It was even funnier when Circuit City was still around and I'd go in and pull some games marked $20 off the shelf and whip out a $10 bill to pay for them. Then watch them come up $3-4 each and the employees jaws just drop.;)

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Yeah, I'm just lucky to have a game manager who will do anything to get my business, so he'll pricematch just about anything I bring in, especially trade-ins, lol. Best Buy is my gaming store this year for sure, especially this holiday!

Got the Banhammer from BB today. I was a very sad panda. Then I remember I'm married and all I gotta do is bring my wife next time I want to do a trade in.

Well, I went yesterday and it was still on. They don't change mid-week so I'd be shocked if they didn't go through Saturday like the OP/title mention plus it was in this week's ad. I don't think the title was updated to remove the question mark.


The question mark is there because there have been some claims it goes longer. 10/6 is the minimum confirmation.

Not too sure if that will help. I went to trade in a game yesterday and found out I was banned again. Note that I was banned before but then reinstated. After upgrading their systems I'm banned again? This time I adhered to all the rules so not sure what's up.

So back to my story. After finding out I was banned I took my wife to a different Best Buy closer to home and had my wife do the trade in. System said she was banned too! The weird thing is that she's only done one other trade in for a handful of games and this was months ago! Either the new system tracks addresses too cuz that's the only way we were linked. She didn't use her Reward Zone or anything.

I didn't see it listed on the site either but I scanned my copy on my iPhone app and it showed a $7 base. Oddly enough the title is "no sign" but it does show the cover art of the game.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Depending on the base values of the new games, this isn't necessarily bad. At 50% bonus, NCAA had a base of 27, which is 43.20 after all bonuses compared to 42 now with 100% bonus. You'll also get an extra negligible amount of rz points. Interested to see what new releases are priced at.

Anything else you would like to tell us? :)

Also, it is so weird that multiple people (and I personally told by 3 different employees) that the 100% was till the end of the year. So much for that. And I have 1 GoHasting shipment that I lose out on I guess.

Time to decide what $3-6 games I should dump now that it is ending.

They have an ad shot over at bluray.com. Only sale that can be seen is a $20 GC with purchase of a 3DS XL. Also, 50% trade in credit indeed.

The +$10 games most likely but those under $10 I am not so sure. They just did a pretty big drop this weekend across a lot of games. I hope I am wrong but I am not risking it for my lower TIV games I was hoping to get through but not too concerned about playing.

I already got rid of my backlog so only games left are ME2 (crap TIV of $2), Madden, and Borderlands 2. I was hoping to trade back in RE6 with 100%, but guessing I can still get around 40 for it.

Uh oh, please say it ain't so. I guess that may mean my wife is going to have to move. Or, at the very least, the kid has to lol
