If you wanted a part time job you should have hook up with DudeImGodly, I can't believe he got away with half the stuff he did for as long as he did.

Ha I'm good now. Before I joined this site I had decent amount of spare money, no backlog, always bought what I wanted to play on Amazon, and some, despite not much, time to play games after work.

Now I have less spare money, growing backlog, and less time to play games already.

:applause:That's about right for a CAG. Maybe a little credit at GS & BBY if you do a little bit of flipping once in a while like I do.

Dumass employ couldnt get my 10% bonus, said the 50% bump was for being GCU. Im working on 4 hours of sleep so I wasnt in the mood to argue over $3.xx


I had this problem tonight as well. Without being rude, I was able to convince the CS rep to try a few things since it did work for me earlier in the week. What ended up working was he had to completely logout and reboot the trade-in site. Then it came up as it should.

Went in with 3x Disney Universe(1 per system) and an Uncharted 3 ($10 from Target) for a total of $89.60. Had around $40 stuck in for a net of about $50.

LOL I Know I know but the guy saw me pick them up to buy. So it really doesnt make a difference where I unwrap them and like I said I know all of the people who work in the gaming department as I'm in there all the time.



Buy at 1, trade at another. You're bold. Lmao

If this is a 1 day sale, I have less than 2 hours to decide if I want to get another. :-k

So tomorrow I'm doing a trade with a guy for my sound system for a bunch of random assorted things of his that match value. Well some of the things are a few Xbox games including black ops, some mtx vs. game, and MLB and NBA 2k12.

Well I'm planning on trading in all of them while this promo is stil going on but the problem is..the sports games are in a dual pack that apparently just came out for $69.99. I know I won't get the same amount in credit by selling it, so should I just get 2 empty 360 cases and put each disc in one? Cause MLB fetches $20 base and NBA fetches $15 base. I'd assume the combo pack would fetch like $24 base and that's it...I mean, it's not even in their system yet!

You can trade them in disc only which I assume would work unless their is something that distinguishes them as being part of a dual pack on the disc

Yes, I'd separate them into 2 cases and trade them in that way.

For anyone who wants a giggle, go to the BB video game trade in site and look at the top video game trade ins for all 3 platforms. :D

:lol:I also noticed that :ps3:Duke Nukem Forever is a $4.80 value after 50% bonus and 10% GCU. So it's a $.20 rental(it's $4.99 at BB) minus any sales tax. Not bad.:)

It's 20 miles one way to another BBY and with gas being $4 bucks a gallon not even worth my time.
Thats the first time I've purchased something from BBY and flipped it back to them. They know I mainly bring in games I bought at yard sales and occasionally a few I've bought at Target.

Not making a lot, just mainly funding my gaming habit :D and they get their preorders

Damn, the guy I was chatting up with said he heard about the 50 year trade-in limit so it's a good possibility that it is in effect. Although, it's super shitty that he doesn't know for sure. What kind of training/communication does BB have with their workers cause wow that's sad when the person working there don't even know.

X_x I'm pretty sure I'm going to hit that limit soonish...all different titles though (didn't even get a chance to trade in the 2nd Uncharted 3 either, ahahaha)...and I only traded like a a month ago. Fuck it, I'll go out in a bang if I have too.


Jeez, why are they bothering, they have banned just about everyone and now this limit. They really are not in it to sell used games as how will they ever have stock. They originally had a plan to kill GS, I think they plan on doing it via Laughter !!

I decided to tally up my GCs to see how much credit I have, and it looks like I have ~$330 thanks to recent trade-ins. :shock:

I'm going to set aside ~$55 for picking up Max Payne 3 (I plan to use a $5 RZ cert. and I'll also be getting the $20 eGC as a result) and possibly $100 for two $50 Amazon GCs. I'll likely just hold on to the rest since you never know... ;)

the 50 limit is really dumb and I'm sure they'll lift it as soon as they realize 1 per title per platform is good enough to curb abuse. They need to make the system reject it though instead of letting people trade in >1 and then ban them after the fact.

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.

Well when the worker accidently added two copies of Uncharted 3 to my trade in instead of just one, the system didn't allow the trade in.

agreed. im seriously considering trading in my entire current gen collection for bb credit to pay for a cintiq tablet monitor for my freelance work, but with the 50/yr limit that idea is out of the question. :cry:

Yeah I traded 2 copies this week also. I am really starting to think this is an employee based situation here. There may be "rules" but are only enforced if the employee chooses to. I mean BBY cannot program their RZ site to accurately dole out RZ cert most of the time so I highly doubt they have set up a computer system to control game trades.

excellent! I just did my first ever trade in to BBY today:

Battlefield 3 (PS3) - $15.00
Killzone 3 (PS3) - $12.00
MVC3 (PS3) - $7.00
AC:B (xb360) - $10.00

$44 + $22 (50% bonus) = $66.00. Bought KZ3, MVC3, AC:B for $20 total from the B2G1 sale.

It's not a hard-limit, so the system will let you trade in multiples if the employee allows it. Theoretically, you could trade in 100 of the same title. The enforcement comes from the ban after the fact.

Also, we've been hearing the same information repeated by multiple sources/employees from multiple locations across the country (1 per title/console, 50 total games per year limits) so while I hope this isn't the case (and BB's actual posted policy doesn't reflect these new limits) I'm operating under the assumption that these new limits are accurate.

The numbers have to be coming from somewhere, and the fact that the same limits are repeated in varied/different locations makes it unlikely that they are just conjecture or some kind of made-up localized restrictions.

It's the same thing that happened last year with the peeps that went-over the 3 per title/console limit. The system let them trade in however many they wanted. They were just banned after the fact...
