I'm so pumped! I just found a copy of Rock Band ACDC for Wii and Imagine: Figure Skater for DS in my apt.
The Skyrin CE will now be down to $2.
If I could just find one more thing.

Edit: And BOOM! Found the extra copy of Star Ocean TLH that I have. That's another $10.

Man I wish I had a Best Buy as close to me as some of you do, to be able to take advantage of their sales and coupons. An hour there and an hour back isn't too bad, especially with gas going down, but it still sucks.

The current flips are kind of crappy. This 110% bonus is catering to the people with baglogs. I miss Rage and Arkham City madness.

I could, but it feels a lot better to unload extra copies of stuff I have and walk out of there with a huge CE for free.

I am sorry to derail this thread for a moment, but can someone tell me where you all are getting the B2G1 coupons? Is it used games only or new games under 39.99? The gamer club website says you get a B2G1 coupon for used games when you join. Thanks for any help.

Oh yeah, forgot about the Gift Card to Visa Prepaid thing, you are absolutely right.
But again, I am not nearly as hardcore as you guys, you guys have 20+ games to trade, I only get ride of 1, maybe 2 games per month...If I had 20+ games to get rid of, I would use trade in definitely.

I almost never sell on eBay now. When I first started off, Buyers took advantage of my low feedback and scammed me left and right. I just started doing trade in after learning from old time CAGs, and occasionally sell my games on foreign e-business sites where they cannot legally buy games.


I only trade in when store credit nets me more than ebay money. I can understand when its just a dollar or two less but i get rid of my games quickly one at a time instead of accumulating stacks of games.

If anything ebay is more convenient than driving to a B&M trade in. It takes 1 min to post an item up and it takes me 3 min. to package it in bubble mailer and drop it off in my mailbox for delivery. Ive sold hundreds of stuff over 10+ years on ebay and ive had a small handful of difficult buyers. Unfortunately you just had a run of bad luck. Ebay is a very reputable place where a majority of transactions go off without a hitch from what ive seen.

Both.

I got the B2G1 new games under $39.99, B2G1 used, 50% off regular priced guide (used on a Diablo 3 CE I randomly found, which was damn lucky), and a digital coupon. I think it was 10% off a digital title under $14.99.

I think it was 10% off a digital title under $14.99.


I got the same welcome package, but I did wonder about that digital title coupon. Does that mean DLC cards, point cards, or both?

Damn, I just bought a used copy of Skyrim for $44.99 (+ tax) last week. I still have the receipt. Do you think they'll price match it for a used copy at the current price or am I screwed?

You're SOL, sorry dude. The used price hasn't dropped, so there's nothing to price adjust.

this deal is just insane. I traded in a ton of games I won't play again(25-ish) and got $401 gift card. I got 250 in amazon credit and bought a new cell phone and also bought skyrim and skyward sword.

I was going to get a Vita but stupid Sony didn't lower the price like I had anticipated

Just traded in another 5 games that I would never get to or could borrow from friends and got the last Skyrim CE :ps3: for about $10 and change after taxes. Got $54.60 for the games, which is about what I paid for them in total. But now instead of having 5 games in their cases taking up space, I have the Skyrim statue taking up space! Not entirely sure yet if this is a good thing since I was trying to free up space, but couldn't resist the urge at a decent CE. Maybe I'll actually get to this game! Maybe... :-k

Got denied at the Orange, CA location for trying to use the 10$ coupon on MW3. "Off regular Price" got thrown at me... Hate how it varies from store to store, they should just accept it everywhere!!!!! :( Guess ill try another store later this week.
