Does anyone still have the email for the trade in from being banned? I found where I had wrote down the phone number but can't find the email. Called two weeks ago about my ban from Dec 2011 and they were supposed to call me back but never did.

How'd you get banned?

If you need to trade something in urgently, try the passport trick, hopefully it still works.

I know not of this trick, and I hope I never need to use it (not banned ... yet...) but JUST incase ;)
I have tried TONS of these websites, but this one delivers. <<<YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS!>>> 63.00$ in my account and counting! :) Just make a Gmail email, and bam you are good to go.

Not much of a trick. Use your passport instead of drivers license. I've been doing it for about 6 months now.

Anybody do any trade ins today? I wanted to go this morning but the trade in section of their website has been down all day so I'm wondering if their in store system is also down.

I guess I shouldn't trade in my unopened copy of Black Ops so fast now.

Should actually play through the campaign at least now that the base is $6.


I'd say check again on Sunday/Monday. I heard they nuked a lot of games because this week is B2G1 on all pre-owned games at BB.

Went yesterday to trade in two games, process took almost 30 minutes. The rep kept saying it was a new system and had to start all over a few times before it took, then couldn't get the finger print part to work. The rep was cool though plus they had avengers playing next to the station so I didn't mind too much.

Ditto. I actually don't see a 50% anywhere. Just 100%.

You ignore that and go by what is at the bottom of the page.

Every time I trade in at Best Buy, it doesn't go smoothly. The person I'm dealing with inevitably "isn't the video games guy", or otherwise has no clue what they are doing. It ends up taking way longer than it should. But the trade-in values are pretty good, so I guess I keep going. :)

Both of those numbers are 50% for me too, but this page still says 100% if you scroll down:

http://www.bestbuy.c...cmcat8400050004

I'm guessing it will soon say 50% too. Seems like 100% may be over.

If they do, they never seem to actually be available!

Always? Hell No. I typically wait anywhere from 5-15mins at an empty trading kiosk until someone finally wanders by.

For me there is always a guy, and I know all of them (total of four, with a new white kid who needs me to remind him of the 10% everytime). My favorite guy is the asian kid, when he does my trade ins, it's over very quick. The worst is when some parents hold up the gaming rep asking questions like "What is the difference between 320GB and 160GB? What is Kinect? Do I need it?".

Yeah, I know the main gaming guy where I go, but he's not always there. Yesterday I had to wait for 2 guys looking for car speakers on the monitor with the blue shirt for almost 10 minutes before they ultimately decided they weren't getting anything :roll:.

The worst is when people get all huffy puffy about waiting for someone to finish my trade when they're only buying something they can totally handle at the front check out.

It's possible that the 50% is for next week and the top banner was put up by mistake. Very rare that Best Buy changes promo mid-week.

It is. According to the thread of next week's ad, the 50% is back.
