Can't you basically just pre-order every game, trade it in, break even, and have it all count toward silver status?


Kinda. The issue with this is your switching cash for BB credit. Most people use the credit to buy the next game, which would't count towards silver. Still a good deal though when you toss in price matches.

As long as BBY continues with their great TIVs for new releases. ;)

Edit: ^That answer is much more complete.:)

I am not sure if this happens to everyone but when I pay for a game with all trade credit and then later get a price match I end up getting the points for the price match price. So if I price match a game to $49.99 my Rewards show a purchase on the day I price matched for $49.99 and I get 98 points + it adds to my Silver Status.

off topic question......when am I suppose to get the magazine? I signed up in Nov and haven't got shit.


It usually takes 4-6 weeks.. and since they don;t always release a magazine every single month, you might have hit a longer period.

Yep. Just a little "perk" of not getting RZ points on the initial purchase.

I sometimes get that. I also sometimes get a -10.60 transaction posted after a price match (6% tax rate here). I know that shouldn't happen, but its not worth calling about and I figure I get enough other extra points to balance it out.

Yeah, I paid for Black Ops II with all gift cards and I only get the 1000 points for it but when I PMed for 39.99, I got 80+ points for it.

The 10% trade in will pay for the subscription, I would expect everyone here will trade at least $150 worth of games back to BBY during their promos every year.


I believe you 'expect' inaccurately; some of us actually like to keep our games. Crazy, I know.

Personally, I recently joined for the $20 pre-order bonuses and even then if there weren't a wealth of great games coming out in the next few months, I wouldn't have joined at all.

Agreed. I hardly ever trade in my games. I bought the sub specifically for the coupons (which hasn't really panned out in recent months).
I will say I couldn't ignore the prior 100% bonus trade-in period, though. But outside of events like that, I don't consider trade-ins worth the effort.

Some CAG were talking about points and pending points reseting at the end of the year. But it looks like I haven't lost anything. Does it only happen randomly, or am I missing some points?

Did you specify that you wanted the physical magazine when you signed up? When I signed up, the clerk didn't even ask and I was registered for the digital version. I had to go to the BB Reward Zone website to change it.

The last sentence said by Zbornak says they had to change it, so that should pretty much answer your question on checking.

most people know by now that best buy usually does do a point reset, but the actual time or date is a mystery. its typically done in january so if you have any points you can cash in, id do it as the cert is good for like 5 or 6 months.

Well, if you rarely trade in games I guess then this membership would benefit you as much as it does the rest of us.

Personally, I don't see why you don't do this. Since you can always trade in at high price and buy back for a much lower price in the future (except for rare titles of course). Meanwhile use the credit to pay for other games and keep the funds flowing. And some games are just not worth keeping, given limited physical space in your house.

Mathematically Correct.
Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

They don't email those... it's snail-mail only. And they aren't even that great, maybe one or two out of the 6 is decent.

You can still save $20 on the game and just buy the magazine at the store.

I still hold out hope that there will be a price drop somewhere in the current coupon group. I'd go for a $20 Sleeping Dogs.
