WOO I ended up winning 2

puzzler worlds 2012 3ds for 19.50 (one for 13.50 one for 6.00)

trade in is 5.00 will double to 10.50..... will be like paying 9.00 out of pocket for the game.... was thinking of tossing it up on ebay for 13 or 14 but after ebay fees it would be the same as best buy


now lets abuse the Fuck out of the 100 %

I DOUBT TRADE VAULES HOLD BUT IF THEY DO

Pokemon white 2
Pokemon black 2
pokemon black/white 2

TOTAL 70 bucks

Trade in 15 each doubles to 30 = 60 + 10% = 63 bucks

End up with a pokemon for 7 bucks .... So freaking tempted

first in line sunday to see :)


The hell are you saying?

100% Trade In Credit on any game - does this mean 100% extra on trades?


No, it means you will get 100% trade in credit (full value) on any game. So say a game has a base TIV of $12.00, and if you trade it in, you will get the full trade in value of $12.00.

If you are serious its a 100% bonus on each individual game. Which would be the same no matter if it was total or per game. So.. :drool:

If trade in values remain the same for BorderLands or Dishonered(27) you could potentially flip a $130(adding in tax) to $162 in credit. ($32 in profit)

I'm sure they'll go lower in value by the time the sale happens.

This is off topic, but this is probably the most active thread. About when do the BF ads start to leak? I was here last year but for the life of me don't remember. I want to get a Wii and if there isn't anything that much better, I'lll get it for 130 once the price drops. Good chance retailers don't focus much on the Wii, as it is pretty much done. Si I'd like to get an idea of what to expect BF

So when would they start rolling in?


Ads will probably start showing up in the next few weeks, but I really dont think there will be much in the of Wii deals since Wii U will be out and Nintendo will be pushing that. If you want a Wii soon I'd just get it at $130, though I could see it going under $100 somepoint this holiday if retailers really want to clear out inventory.

No way the TIV's stay, they'll probably go back to $18-$20 range.

Is everyone seriously trying to buy 3 new games to flip right back to bb? Smh. I can understand gs to bb used flipping, but this is wasteful.

It's actually not. You save money on Gas not having to move store to store. You can do all your flipping at the register. ;)

I can not imagine any smart business allowing a person to purchase using B2G1 and then trading in all three at the same register. Unless you are going to another BBY, they will probably not going to let that fly

Looking at grabbing Doom BFG and the Kirby Collection for 39.99 each, can anyone recommend another 39.99 title to pick up as the free game?

Buy the games in the front then trade them in the gaming section.

I thought the newer games are either locked behind in the gaming section to be taken to the front or locked in cases that the gaming section has to open

Not only that, but the way BB rings up these promos there will be no "free" game - they will average the price across all 3 so they will show on the receipt as $40/each. They do this to prevent return abuse. So if you return one the week after the sale, you'll get $40 back & still owe $20 on a $60 game.

I bought 3 games last year under the promo and it was 2 games at full price and the third for free. Funny thing is I tried to return the games bc I didnt feel i really needed them and the customer service rep told me to just keep the free one as it had "no value" in the transaction

I thought the newer games are either locked behind in the gaming section to be taken to the front or locked in cases that the gaming section has to open

All BBs near me have the games on the shelves ready to be picked up by any customer

I'd love to know can I b2g1 and price match?

No. Thats double dipping. You choose which promo you want, but not both

what does the 100% trade in value mean?

i get 100% trade in value no matter the condition of the game
or
i get a bonus 100% trade in value compared to the trade in value of the game at that time?

It is 100% bonus of base value. BBY has two trade conditions...accepted or not accepted. No case, artwork, or manual needed but fellow CAG appreciated.

Do they usually drop trade in values when they have the 100% deal? Might trade in Dishonored for $54.

Realistically unless there's a glitch or by some anomaly the tiv and 100% overlap, than yes they will adjust the tiv down.

Yes your example is correct but the TIV on Sunday won't be $27. At best it will be $20. Local rep told me the highest tiv they can have with 100% bonus is $20 or $42 after bonus and gcu. 100% is best for those $10 and under games.

Yeah, there definitely going to drop some of the higher values before the 100% bonus kicks in again. I believe that's what happened last time.

Batman Arkham City GOTY is $39.99 right now. Don't know if that's a sale price. Also, I've seen it as low as $29.99.

I already have XCOM. Thinking about taking it back for a return/rebuy. Rented Dishonored from Redbox and wasn't really impressed by it (I know I'm probably the 1%) so that's out. Any other recommendations. Thinking about between MoH Warfighter, Resident Evil 6, or Transformers FoC. I'm skeptical of the first 2 and really only want Transformers...but fear a big drop of price because I don't see that game holding it's value. Any thoughts?

All 3 games have to be $40 or under for that - how would that work with brand new games?


For the welcome packet coupon, pretty sure only the free game has to be $39.99 and under.


Yeah, I figured the coupon only meant the free game had to be $39.99 or below -- the others are fine. Anyone have any luck with this? Would they have to return/rebuy or something along those lines?

It's a tough call with this deal but I think I am going to try and be patient this year. Last year I remember getting frustrated when almost every game I purchased in the buy2g1free sale was less than 40 during the holiday season. I have a decent backlog of games anyway but I remember seeing great sales at retailers from black friday through December for some top new titles at large discounts around $30 - $35 bucks. I was however wondering if this is the best time to get 3ds and vita games or if anyone remember whether or not they go on sale? I can't remember if those were part of any deals last year as I was only really going after console games.

Kind of glad I dont have my PS3 this week, forcing myself to finish my handheld backlog. Looks like I'll have quite a few things to trade in the moment this starts (And before values really tank)

Looks like BB fixed the Street Fighter X Tekken Vita release date. I'll be getting SFxT Vita, Monkey Ball Vita, and either Pokmeon White 2 or Killzone Trilogy.
