Two days ago(not counting today) was Saturday. Saturday is not considered a business day by most businesses. So at the earliest, I would say the coupon would show up on Wednesday.

Yeah. I renewed on Fri 3/23. My 250 bonus point hit the next day and my B2G1 coupon was there this morning. GS also game me another GI mag. Didn't know the Ass. Creed III issue had 2 different covers. Good to have one without my info on the back and a big expiration sticker on the front.

...but let's get back to talkin' BB business.

Used the B2G1 coupon and my Akrham City credit at Gamestop to get a couple MW3s to flip. Basically turned like $20 real money into $120 BB credit... my God.

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.

MK is $24 after bonus. Going to wait for the $34.99 preowned MK:Komplete and hopefully use a $10 off coupon. Free upgrade!!!

Interestingly enough MK:Komplete is not listed for TIV.

Flipped a copy of Dead Island

cost $5.93 and left the store and walked right back in and traded it in for $25.60


Got one of those Powerup Rewards cards at Gamestop and then got a B2G1 deal on MW3 (the coupon doesn't come for 48 hours but I was told I can re-ring out with the coupon since I bought the PUR card) and got $40 trade-in at Best Buy for the first 2 copies.

I didnt' want to trade them all 3 in at one place, so I went to another best buy and of course their trade-in machine was not working.

I believe the established rule is 3 copies per platform, so you could go with the former option, but I highly suggest you don't trade all of them on the same day at the same BBY, lest you run the risk of being banned.

So you do not need to have the physical copies of the games when you go back to get the price adjusted? I also signed up for the pur card today and assumed I would still need the games to get the price adjustment when I got the coupon.

Nope. All you need is the receipt.

You can't trade in any more games at BB.

Nope, only need the receipt apparently.

Seems like it needs to be within the 7 day return windows for used stuff.

From wha I gather they'll just return the games and then re-ring them out with the coupon.

My BBY did not have any Dead Island! My store has poor selections of used games.

I wanted to used my $10-off coupon so i bought White Knight Chronicles II for $11.XX (with coupon). Found out that Base TIV for it at BBY right now is $14. So i traded it back to the store (Base+50% bonus+10% unlocked) for $22.XX.

I lost out on DI but a $10.XX turn around for WKCII is already okay for me! Converted my $10-off Pre-owned Coupon to BBY Giftcard. hehe!

Hope this well help out some people who missed out.

I did a super mega flip LOL thanks to the B2G1 sale that included clearance games @ Target and the BB Gamer Coupons. Those have been on fire this month for flipping purposes :D.

FWIW I was just talking to a best buy employee today and he told me that they're only taking one title per platform (for example only one copy of MW3 on PS3 and one 360 and one Wii). He also said that each person is limited to 50 games traded in per year now. This might be this store only or could be nationwide. It would be great if other people could find more information about this from their local employees.

depends on the store. both my bbs moved the trade in machines from gaming to cs since the stores do trade-ins for other items besides just video games.
