People whining about having to do their job is annoying. Hence you no longer have a job and people buy most of their reading materials from the internet. Fuck off and go work at McDonald's now.

Best Buy managed to out-Gamestop Gamestop. Good show. :applause:

8-) Real gamers don't shop at GameStop 8-)

Wait a moment... guaranteed %100 trade in credit on all games? Does the Madden deal already include that amount?

There is no way in hell BB would give you $90 for Madden. I wish GTA 4 The Complete Edition was $15. I need to purchase that  so I can play the main game and the dlc before GTA V.

Well, when you put it in all caps, it makes so much more sense. Calm down son.

 

Look, stop thinking that we don't get it. But semantics and wording mean everything, and I've convinced more than one manager to allow a deal based on BB's wording for particular offers. I'm sure it's worded clearly in the actual advertisement, but this initial thread shows no such clarification. It's a thought, so again - calm down.

Never traded in a game at bestbuy have you? If so you should know how it works, the TiV will be about $22.50, the 100% is what makes it $45. Honoring a deal is a lot different then giving you an inflated trade in amount, it is hard enough to get what they are supposed to give you.

I've traded there multiple times, which is why I was interested in the wording of the deal. Like I said, the deal makes sense given the high trade in value, but I've done this before and gotten a better deal than expected. Just a thought, and apologies for coming across so strongly.

 

 

So common sense doesn't click on in your head that no retailer would offer a game for $59.99 and let people trade it in for $90?

Common sense? Did you read the post? Everything I just said was based on common sense.

And retailers have done dumb things before - look at Target's pricing issue with Tomb Raider this week as an example.

Madden 25 could be worth picking up after all. $45 in trade value, plus the $10 Reward Zone certificate if you preorder essentially makes the game a 5$ grab. Hmmm.....

You should use the prepaid cards to earn silver that way you have 60 days when you need it. $77 vs $2500 & you're set.

For those asking about console trade-ins, you are typically better off with Gamestop.

 

Here's the page for console trade-in values though if you want to look up your item yourself though.

 

http://www.bestbuytr...system-consoles

 

Some of the newer systems aren't too bad($125 for a WiiU), but the older the system the worse the value gets.

You can earn silver status for $77.35(in fees) on 13 $200 prepaid visas vs $2500 spent just at BB. With that u get the 60 day return/rebuy option when u need it.
The $2500 "hurdle" seems to be the biggest reason people state but by the time you add up all purchases that can be pm'd you can get to silver easily.

So your really spending the $2600 in prepaid money on a Visa and an additional 77.35 just to make silver? Seems legit, if I wanted to spread my money across 13 prepaid cards. (Don't they also charge per transaction on said cards too?)

The $77.35 is the fees $5.95 per card. I don't need them to reach silver since i pm at Bb vs buying elsewhere but earning rz pts for paying for my car insurance, groceries, clothes, gas(I drive for a living & pay for all my gas $60-$70/day), car repairs is better than nothing. Plus they add up fast which fully pays off my monthly cell phone bill. The money saved via 60 day return/rebuy is well worth it. The only plus with the 15 day return policy is that ever 2 weeks tons of points post.

Another idea is the Amazon Kindle cards they sell which can be used on anything sold by Amazon. I hit silver last year with half products bought at bb rest bought using Amazon credit. It was misleading as the cards wouldn't reflect in my annual balance bar on the reward zone site but, I still received it.
