I'm not enjoying the game as much as I thought it was. Any current base tiv? I read some said 9 to 18 so I'm not sure. Too busy to call :(


It takes less than two minutes to call. You can't be that busy.

Didn't realize Witcher 2 was part of the sale. Hopefully it goes back up once I finish it.

Doesn't seem like that good of a flip honestly. $15+tax for $12, $18 after the 50% bonus. Barely worth the effort.

Man the guy at the last gamestop I went to was a huge dick. I did the preorder game get 30% bonus on anything. Traded in another dualshock 3 for $42. I wanted to only put down $5, which I did before with no problem even though the deal says it has to all be applied. Not that it's even that big of a deal as I'm going to cancel them anyways, but the way he acted was pretty over the top.

GS: "Which gamestop did you preorder at? They're not allowed to do that they can get all kinds of fired for doing that!"
Me: "well, the system does the 30% bonus whether its $5 or all. It doesn't matter really."
GS: "Well, it all has to be applied, that's what it says!"
Me: "Ok whatever, doesn't really matter to me."

All this was in what I would describe as assistant manager tone.

Then he went on a whole rant about me preordering at two different stores. "You do know you have to pick up the game at that store? Why would you do that!"

Because I could care less where I preorder I'm going to cancel it next time I'm at the store anyways!!!!!! Just give me the damn receipt so I fcking leave.

He also put a piece of tape far from the counter that said start line here. There was one person at the counter so he made me stand behind it which was about 8 feet from the register.

How? If you're lucky and get 3 at one store with the b2g1. It was OOS at every bestbuy around me within 30 minutes of the stores opening today. People barely could get one of it. Online it limits you to one per order so no b2g1 there.

Just to be clear, the 50% cant be stacked with the other trade offers such as the 25% for trading in four or the 30% power trade, right?
If I'm not mistaken, only best buy allowed stacking when they had multiple trade-in promotions.

To answer your question, yes, but I don't think BBY ever allowed stacking for trade-in promos aside from the usual 10% GCU bonus stacking with everything (like GS's 10% PUR bonus stacking with everything).

No! In fact if you're going to do the power trade on lets say a controller or console, you have to do the games separate to get the 50%. This happened to me and the cashier had to manually take the difference (20%) off a game I was buying or else I had to completely redo the trade and go get the other games I bought from my car to return/rebuy them.

For consoles what is the refurb charge? Is it for non-working systems. I have a DS lite that the touchscreen doesn't work. I have it at the bottom of some box at my house. If I can dig it up would it be $20 plus the 30% PUR and then - $10 for the refurb? so I could technically get $18 for a broken DS lite?

There were 8 games total between 2 local Best Buys from when I checked yesterday. I was able to buy one at one store and then get another 2 at the other. Traded in a Witcher 2 at store #2 for $24 that I got for $10 at store #1 then did a return/rebuy for Kid Icarus so I could get the B2G1.

So it is possible, but I guess extremely YMMV as many people are reporting shortages or OOS at their respective Best Buys. Also, it helps that I was lucky enough to have the day off so I was there at store opening.

I only bought Kid Icarus to try it out. If I end up liking it, then I got it at the price that it won't reach again for a while. If not I can trade it in and get my money back.

That's a lot of work and potential to get banned doing the buy-->trade immediately thing that has gotten some people banned.

Yeah. I know as I was banned for 6 months but reinstated. One of the reps I talked to said that it throws a flag when you purchase a game and trade it in within 30 days.
I'm testing out a work around that seems to be working so far but too early to tell. I got a second Reward Zone account that I can access, but it's not linked to me or my Unlocked acct. In theory it shouldn't show up on their system as someone else purchased it and I did the trade in.

Oh and to contribute to this thread....
I have no new updates.

The clerk didn't apply the extra 30% for accessories when I went in today. I think I messed him up because I was trading in a game at the same time and had him split the credit between 2 (eligible) games. Is there an email to contact GS about this? I only see a fill-in form on GS's website.


Do you still get an extra 30% for accessories or is that promotion over?
