holy crap you can get $40 for Nintendo Land!?! GS tiv is like $14 or something lol.

Also, I'm dying for the 100% to come back. So many games I want to trade in with it.

Lol, I suspect that trade in for this will drop like a rock over the next few months, as it always does with pack in games. Debating on trading mine in, but its one of only 2 Wii U games I have and really is a good showcase of what you can do with the system.


Trade it man. It will be 15 or less in no time.

That's highway robbery at that tiv. I fully expect Best Buy to receive a tidal wave of Nintendo Land trade ins.

It'll be much lower by 12/25 when the next promo goes into effect if not sooner.

Just traded mine in today along with Tekken Tag 2, easy 50$. No way in hell would I wait if you have any plans to trade it in, I'd be surprised if it was still 20$ by this Sunday.

They had a hard time finding it in the system though, had to actually manually scroll through WiiU games, wouldnt scan or show up under search.

My BB's love me since I have SKU's for damn near all the games I've traded makes it easy to keep track of.

Anybody do a Gift Card purchase of a Visa Gift Card recently? Did they give you any trouble?

thinking of going tomorrow while Black Ops 2 and MW3 are hot.


Got one today with my pitch in card. Receipt says "open loop", why is that?

Just came back from trading in Nintendo Land. Had some issues at my first Best Buy, so I had to go to a second one. The first Best Buy claimed the game wasn't in their system and I would only receive 1 cent for it.

Nintendo Land is super tempting at $40 but honestly Mario Chase is way too fun (with friends).

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

So is the BB GC to Visa GC YMMV or something?

I've visited the forums and the official reps state that it is not possible to buy Visa GC with BB GC.

Even going as far as saying that the government has some kind of regulation on it, and that systems prevent it from happening.

Why would anyone even ask that kind of question on BBY forums -_- that just screams FIX ME!
Its been discussed for quite some time in this and the previous bby trade-in thread.

Well I do know one thing. The system DOES allow it but I was recently denied the VISA card also. Before that I had purchased 4 of them the past 6 months. I think it is corporate policy to deny these as much as possible since the are really money losers for them. Although I do not understand then why they allow BBY GC to be used on Amazon and Itunes cards since they do not make much on those either. I need to try again but I have not since Black Friday.

You mean $24. You could always sell it on craigslist. Maybe could get a little more by selling Amazon. All depends on how soon you want it sold.

Looks at stack of 46+ used BB visas...I've had to alert new staff how to ring them up b/c several have been completely confused F6, F5 then scan the large barcode done. B/C store credit is "payment" there should be no issue I've turned Target credit into pre-paid visa before. I consistantly double flip credit from BB to walmart back to BB...since BB credit doesn't earn RZ points buying a BB card the goto walmart & purchase a walmart GC & finally convert that to a $500 walmart pre-paid visa which now earns points just like cash. But u pay fees on both ends.

The glitch in the system was that RZ certs where able to be converted into the visas which was fixed several months ago but again store credit is "payment" thus can pay for anything that can be purchased in-store.

Granted the system allows it, but multiple in house memos tell the employees it should not be allowed. Just a heads up

Why wouldn't it be allowed? I'm sure BBY gets a cut of the activation fee

There may be some truth to the whole "legal" reason why they aren't supposed to. You could, theoretically, use it to launder money if you wanted, though not very efficiently...

More likely though, they don't like to allow it because that small cut of the activation fee is much less than the money walking out the door on the card.

They fixed this? I haven't done that since around this time last year. I was amazed it worked. Last one I got was after my 5/$100 paid out. After that I pretty much never got anymore RZ certs because all purchases were paid with BB credit and I was banned after they started giving points for trade-ins.

The 50% promotion ended. There is still the 50% bonus if you trade in towards a sony pulse headset I believe, not sure when that ends.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.
