I still feel I should lock in my Uncharted 3 trade in this week for 20ish because I won't know its value next week even with a 110% trade in bonus.

I'm just planning on taking in my 3 CE games. (Prototype 2, Gears of War 3, Skyrim) just hoping they don't bitch at me cause I'm taking in only the discs in paper sleeves.

Man,
MW3 is still at $20. If that holds, I may get rid of it on Sunday for $40.
Never play the damn thing anyway.

Best Buy had SR3 for 34.99 last year and that was also during the time they had their buy 2 get 1 free deal. Seems like there was also a $10 coupon in the mag that made it 29.99 late last year, as well.


I believe it was $29.99 during a DOTD. I'm pretty sure that's when I price adjusted my copy.

Ummmmmmm, but you can't lock in the games and get the bonus. The only way you can lock it in, is online.

Do you guys think now would be a good time to use the $40 off NCAA 12 coupon? Getting it for 20 bucks, then trying to flip it next week for double whatever the trade in value is?

I regret not buying Darkness 2 yesterday, platinuming it this weekend and trading it back with the 110% extra credit.

Speaking of which, anyone else expecting to see a massive drop across the board on TIVs? This deal seems too good to be true

Honestly, if the TiV's drop more than they normally should (Max Payne should STAY at or very close to $20, for instance) I'll probably stop trading in there for the foreseeable future. That's shady business right there if they drop the TiV's by any decent percent...it's supposed to be a DEAL, not a "trick the customer into thinking they're getting a deal".

I too though, will risk it and wait until next week to trade in Max Payne, and like others who bought Darkness 2 maybe I can finish it this week since it's supposed to be pretty short. If I get enough I'll do the b2g1 3DS deal. Of course I also need a new camera tripod too so it'll be a tough choice haha.

To bad I don't have any games that I want to part with, as 100% trade in bonus seems to good to be true. However, it seems like I won't be missing much if BB kills a lot of the current trade in values of my games like people are predicting. Oh well. I am tempted on that Zelda: Skyward Sword for 34.99, however.

I traded in some games to GS this past weekend, but I had compared all prices to the ones shown on the BB Trade-in Web page first. Most of them were either half or a few dollars less than GS's TIV. For example, Dead Island was $6 at BB, but I got $11 for it at GS(without counting bonuses). Most of the other games I traded in were PS2 games, with a few Wii and 360 games. I had exactly 7 games worth over $3.00 so I got the $35 bonus TIV, which I think was a much better route to go. I also had quite a bit of PS2 games, and ALL of them showed a $0.25 value on BB's site. I traded them into GS and only 2 rang up in the $0.25 range. All the rest rang up at $0.50-$1.25.

Important Information on 100% Trade-In Deal...
TIV's have dropped like a Mofo...I traded in about 30 Games last month and got good deals with 60% trade in (with Gamer Zone Unlocked Membership). Here are some examples of how bad this deal is now...

Trade-Ins: (New Deals reflect 100% Trade-In)
SSX - I Got: $25.60 New Deal: $12
Madden 12: I Got: $16 New Deal: $12

A few games get you a couple dollars more than the previous offer even with TIV's dropped...however, this deal is no better than the 50% that was going on before.

Don't be fooled, it is still a good deal if you don't want your games and want some Gift Cards...but the 100% trade in is sorta a joke.

Higher base value doesn't mean much, though, since GS's bonuses for pre-ordering, etc. are usually lower than BB's. There's a major delta on some games, but they end up being about the same for most in my experience. And I'd rather have a bit less credit at Best Buy, where I can get DOTD and non-game items. It can be a PITA to find a good use for GS credit.

That's because everybody(include me:twisted::evil:) traded in 30-40+ crappy PS2 sports games for about $1.50 each after buying em with credit/gift cards from GS during a B2G2 on games and ended up forcing BB to re-think their $1 minimum trade value.;)

As for the TIV nuking, I predict a further update before Sunday which will tank the rest of the values down to where you're either just breaking even or LOSING money/credit on the transaction.

They're getting smarter at this game trading thing. At least they're still trying to compete with GS, unlike WalMart(who got out of the biz before they even got off the ground for the most part) and even Amazon, which doesn't even offer bonuses anymore.:roll:

LOL

I just traded in the game yesterday and it had a $10 base, no way it will still be $10 on Sunday for a sports game that will be replaced by a new version in about 2 months.

It'll probably drop to $5-6 on Sunday.

So get it only if you want to actually keep it and play it.
