Don't they give you like the default $1 if it's not in the system?

If a game (e.g., Anarchy Reigns) is not in the inline trade in value calculator, does best buy accept it?



For a buck or 50 cents or whatever the generic item trade in is these days.

Darn. So DC3 would get a pitance. Doesn't make a lot of sense that they'd give more for DC1 and DC2. Oh well. I guess I'll check again another day and see if it is in the system.

There is a contact option for the online trade in, you may want to message them about it not being there. At this point, it not being there is an oversight not a delay. DC3 came out in November or October didn't it?


Point is you an try to get in touch and "inform them that a rather popular game in a rather popular franchise is not in their database at all" or find an alternative to trade it cause it probably isn't going to get added any time soon at this point.

DC3 was in the system as recently as two weeks ago (I traded in DC2 and saw it when I was searching what the value would be). Don't remember what the base value was or anything, but this is almost definitely some sort of glitch on Best Buy's end (seems to happen more and more frequently).

Are you sure? I remember searching a couple of weeks ago and not seeing it.

Hmm.. Maybe I'm not 100% sure I saw it two weeks ago, but I am 100% sure I've seen it before. I have looked up the TIV for those games a few times recently when I was hard up for cash, but always skipped it because the Mrs likes em.

Hate to break it to you guys but the base is $3. Searching via the game and then clicking the trade-in button yields this:

Not sure what's going on with the system. Here is the direct link if need it be.

I traded in Halo 4 to Best Buy for $40. That was after essentially getting it for $40 with the $20 RZ pre-order bonus and paying all with credit. Then getting a $20 price adjustment when Target had it for $39.99. And then selling the DLC on ebay for $40.

Would've been so awesome if I they actually did have it for $20 this week, lol. I would've bought it back and finished the campaign.


You traded Halo4 recently??? For $40? Hmmm...

He probably meant last year around 2nd or 3rd week after Halo 4 came out. Base for Halo 4 was around $22 to $20 for 100% and $27 for 50% trade in promo back then. It dropped thereafter to $17 for 50% and now at $12 for 100% promo.

No value is up for Dead Space 3 :/

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

It better. I'm waiting to see what it will be before opening and playing it. If it's anywhere below $30, I'm just going to return it...

Given the trend lately, my guess is the base would be $14. We shall see.

Ya, best buys trade values are really a joke now.
I don't trade a lot , but I brought 7 games for trade to get. Dead space 3, and ended up trading em at Gamestop. The 30% there was better than the 100% at BB.

What a load...
So Windwaker HD is like cocaine for my eyes.

I traded in two newly released games that I purchased over the holidays, played once and got mad at and decided I wouldn't touch them again.

I highly recommend taking advantage of this trade in bonus over something like Gamestop's guaranteed $30 for newish games.

Yeah trade in values at best buy are terrible if they aren't newly released games and even then I only trade in at best buy when they have the 100%bonus

People here realize places like Best Buy want to make a profit on used games, right?

As I've said here before, gone are the days of 2012 when you could get ~$42 on a new game trade-in. There was no way that was going to last when that same game would only sell for $45-$50 used. We were spoiled last year. Adjust your expectations and move on.

If I can get 35 for new release I'll be happy.

Trading in Borderlands 2 with no level increase shit. Looks like 23.10 which isn't bad. Wasted $30 on damn season pass.

The level cap increase in Borderlands 2 is coming soon if you want to hold out a little bit longer.
