Let's see, I guess I'd say: "I'm sorry that I traded in games after being enthusiastically encouraged to do so by your employees and then went over an undisclosed and arbitrary trigger point. I will never do it again even though I don't know what it is that I am not supposed to do". I guess it is worth a shot ;).


Exactly! Just say it with confidence, and you're set. Plus mention you're a silver rz member too if you are. Nothing to lose man.

My best buy only scans my driver's license, if I have to give them my fingerprint, I won't even bother trading in.

Probably price matched GS price at target, and used $20 off coupon would be my guess

If a game is not listed on the sight does that mean that it can't be traded in yet?
I'm considering trading in Prototype 2 - or at least wanting a value for it.

Will call a store when they open today to see what they say.

They usually don't start listing games to trade until about a week or so after it comes out.

I know they didn't list Witcher 2 until just the other day.

Had a successful trade in to confirm that my ban was removed. Although for some reason I didn't get the 10% bump for GCU. It was a dollar difference anyways.

Quick question though, don't the trade in papers usually have our name and info on them? My trade in papers didn't.


Does your banned account still come up in the system at the store? After my ban was removed several months ago, my original account still comes up in the store even though it doesn't exist online. Basically, I have two accounts show uo when they search for mine in the store, the banned one and the working one. I was told this was because it was a separate system and there is no way to remove the original account from the store's database. Is this true or a likely story? I haven't traded since January because it always takes 30+ minutes to get the right stuff to pull up. I have a couple uncharted 3's, ME3's, and MW3's to trade in so I am going in today again after a 4 month leave from CAG(to stop spending so much damn money!)

Any flips to convert GS credit into BB? My GS credit is down to $24 and I'd love to get some BB credit for that and buy a couple of movies.

NVM: I found a post from a couple of days ago that listed stuff. Thank you

I got a couple of ME3 like new from Amazon warehouse for $22.xx. One actually came in sealed with amazon sticker outside of the seal, so maybe it's new?

I know best buy is supposedly starting to change some of their policies regarding trade in quantities and limits. Are they still accepting disc only trades for the same value as completes? I know that's how it used to be I just want to make sure they haven't changed anything recently

Disc only gives you the same value as of yesterday.

:lol:Front Mission Evolved. That game was a decent flip soon after it released too. GS had it for $20 on sale the one week(along with Kane & Lynch 2). Every copy was getting $23 in CASH at FYE and the other Transworld Entertainment stores and sites.

It was a good way to convert some GS(and even Amazon) credit into CASH.:D

Where are these new trade limits and policies posted? Did i miss the link? If not, i Find it irritating that a business has not posted these things and are rather banning at will.

^ you're exactly the person I'd love to trade it in too! I'm trading in L4D2 and AC:BH tonight to get around $32 and I've got my $10 off preowned coupon... I'll either be buying Witcher 2 new or rebuying MW3 or BF3 at next to no additional cost.

If I go with the latter, not sure which I'll be rebuying, but I seem to remember BF being more fun when I owned it briefly.

On their kiosk screen for bonuses, it did say expires June 2nd. Whether or not that holds, no idea.

Quite happy today. I'm delighted that I haven't been banned from trading in at BB. Converted $24 GS credit into $40 Best Buy credit using a few games from the link in my previous post. I know it isn't great but hey I'd rather BB credit than GS credit which these days is basically useless for me since I never buy from them.

I was alos told that the 50% promo runs till June 2nd.

Tomorrow from what I gather. I was only half listening to him.
The person who was doing my trade-in was a girl with a super bored face.
She tried to tell me that the 10% GCU doesn't stack with the 50% promo trade-in.
The guy who was telling me the B2G1 free deal tried to tell her otherwise but she wasn't having it.
So I told her to scan my card and try.

It did stack and she looked so disgruntled she had to do more work for me to get my $6 extra.
First time I ran into her...I tend to do my trade-ins in the morning but I was busy running around Target and GS this afternoon.

I totally just picked up Fallout New Vegas: Complete edition for $12 by the way.
They priced it the same as the regular edition :O
Since I just traded in my regular edition, might as well.
