Picked up 17 games (all Wii & DS) from the Kmart B1G1 50% OFF clearance sale for around $73 then had my gf do her 2nd trade in @ BB. Netted $193.50. Most expensive game that I paid for cost $4.50.

I was shocked at the TIV of the Wii & DS games I found. Imagine Gymnast for the DS with an $8 base :D amongst others.

Is trading in disc only games still YMMV, or did they establish a policy either way?

Does anybody know if they take Kinect Sensors or Xbox 360 wireless remotes? Because I called in and the lady sounded confused but didn't want to transfer me ._.

Lmao. I wonder how many of you trading in disc only, don't mind receiving disc-only games in a generic case....if you buy pre-owned?

Haha, I hate it personally, but I have had to trade in collector's editions where I kept all the extras. Batman, FFXIII (because I was buying the Asian version with Japanese voice/English subtitles), Skyrim, Marvel vs. Capcom.. and there's probably more I'm missing. They either didn't come with a proper case, or had a steelbook that I didn't want to trade in :)

I only trade disc only when I have a copy of a game from a bundle and the UPC has been replaced by that NOT FOR RESALE message. Not sure if that matters but I think I read people have had there trade in denied because of that.

I have to say, I can see where you're coming from with the steel cases.

Lol. Yeah. You may get 1 that will give you the case back if it has NOT FOR RESALE on it.

I'm sure, similar to the Turtle Beaches, it was only available one day until they fixed it in the system.


I purchased MW3 (xbox360) for 24.99 on Tuesday. The $10 off promo screen popped up after the cashier totaled my purchase. The cashier scanned the rewardzone coupon b4 the game. Big thx to the OP for the heads up on this deal!

Look up the values here:
http://www.bestbuy.c...17093&type=page

Multiply them by 2(add in an additional 10% based on the values you find there if you have the Gamer's Club Unlocked).

Then decide if it's worth it for you.

did anyone notice that the BB ad online has a page for pre-ordering Halo 4? It also says you get a free poster the day you pre-order (online pre-orders get poster when they get the game) went to two stores yesterday, both had no idea about the ad page or the poster. They both said you'll get the poster when you pick up the game. But I wasn't playing that game..so my question is really, did anyone else notice the pre-order / poster deal and were you able to get one in-store this week?

I got one of the posters yesterday. While I was doing some trades a guy brought the package with the posters in it and set them on the counter in the game section.

It's not a bad poster at all. It actually has "limited lithograph" on the outer envelope and is a thicker card stock.

Dumb question, my xbox burned two rings in my Forza 4 disc... still plays, but looks awful. I've never traded a game in, how much does this affect the trade-in value?

awesome thanks man! yeah, the clerk seemed too lazy to go to the back to check or was helping someone else. I guess I will go back some time later this week. Also, it doesn't sound like I'd want to hang this in my garage which is where all my posters get regulated to :cry:

I decided to do this. I've gotten into the bad habit of buying games just because they are a great deal and not because I think I will actually play them. (That's not really a bad thing though as I actually got more money back than I paid for most of them.) I sold back the following list (mix of PS3 and Xbox) yesterday making more than I paid overall so I'm happy.

Assassin's Creed Revelations w/ AC I
Batman Arkham City
Brutal Legend
Bulletstorm
Child of Eden
Dante's Inferno
Dragon Age: Origins
Fable II
FEAR 3
Final Fantasy XIII-2
Gears of War Triple Pack
Homefront
Katamari Forever
Killzone 3
Lego Indiana Jones: The original Adventure
Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom
Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
Mass Effect 2
NBA 2K11
Plants Vs Zombies (With Peggle and Zuma)
Portal 2
Prince of Persia
Red Dead Redemption
Resident Evil 5
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing
Sonics Ultimate Genesis Collection
The Orange Box
Transformers: War for Cybertron

Total after 100% + unlocked bonus: $319.20

PMed Zumba 2 at Walmart for $20.

Had to print the page because, as usual, our local Sunday paper only has Best Buy 1/4 of the time.
