does the email for the e-gift card arrive separately from the trade-received confirmation?  (online trade).

Well, Forza 4 gets $10 at Best Buy, Disney Adventures Kinect gets $1. If that's what you're asking... You can only trade in 3 copies of that Froza 4 though.

I wouldn't buy them. A quick google search tells me the Essentials Edition is the version that was packed in with consoles. It is missing the second disc. I'm guessing it doesn't even have a UPC.

We have some serious lack of critical decision making/thinking skills here. Lets not remind him that only 3 copies can be traded to BB, or that WallyMart has this item as a recycle item. Quick someone tell him what to do.

He could attempt to trade 3 of them disc only and try to pass them off as standard Forza 4, but again, I wouldn't. Trading in 3 copies of the same game disc only will probably get you noticed and they will pay closer attention to what you are trading in. Then you look like an ass during your walk of shame out the door when they figured out you tried to trick them.

I usually give it a week after receiving the first email, just in case they may be busy with other trade-ins.

Amazon has Angry Bird Star Wars for PS3 & 360 for $9.99--trades to BB for $14.

 

Same with Ninja Turtles on the 360 ($9.99 on Amazon > $14 BB).

 

If anyone needs a credit mover.

Is the 360 version of this game any better than the 3DS which was very lazy?

 

Anyway, have to share my fun little trade in story today. Wound up bringing Battlefield 4 in today because I hadn't had time to take it to the UPS store and screw it, $3 wasn't worth waiting like 2 weeks for them to send me an e-gift card. So I do the trade, no problem. I then ask the woman who just did the trade to combine my new giftcard with my old. She responds, "Oh, I can't do that, system won't let me." I look her dead in the face and simply say, "that is not correct. You sell a new giftcard and we use the old ones to pay for it. It's silly but the only way to do it." She got a little feisty then, but was clearly starting to reluctantly go ahead with it with the, "well... I'll try it but it never works" comment. A guy in Geek Squad then pipes up, "Combing gift cards? Oh yeah, no, we can't do that, that's illegal." I looked over at him and went, "I"m sorry, I think you're mistaken. Using gift cards to buy Visa gift cars is frowned upon because it's an easy way to theoretically launder money but that isn't illegal and combining two gift cards into one certainly is not illegal." He responds, "No, it's illegal."

 

At this point I can't help myself, especially as the girl is mid way through combining my gift cards for me, and ask, "How is transferring store credit to store credit illegal?" Of course the response was clearly the culmination of years of law school, "Uhh... cause like... you're buying a gift card, with a gift card, and like that's... totally like... we shouldn't do that."

 

I legitimately just stared at him and then turned back to the woman out of fear if I continued to interact with him his stupidity might manage to become contagious. At this point I hand the woman my "MyBestBuy" card and said, would you mind scanning this as well just so I have a record of the transaction. She damn near lost her shit then, started talking really fast about "double dipping" and "she was not going to let me put my elite plus membership on here and that I could either take the transaction without it being tied to my membership or she could cancel the transaction. I avoided a face palm as best I could and just told her to finish the damn transaction, knowing I could just go home and add the receipt to MyBestBuy from the website. For the record, I love that I get points from doing that, but I also legitimately like having a record of it because sometimes there are large amounts of credit being moved and some employees are dumb and screw things up some times so it's nice to have "proof" you did "purchase" that card.

 

So yeah, I'll be avoiding that Best Buy and going back to the one next door to corporate who doesn't accuse me of illegal activities for combining a gift card (those employees will even ask me if I want to add my membership too).

LOL gotta love when they think they're right to the point where you just wanna stop time, bring them back to school & then become the teacher for 5-10 minutes. Then return to reality with everyone who just watched the lesson looking. Then "say what again?"

Like I would totally understand if Best Buy up high said, "hey, stop doing this because our system thinks they are new purchases and it is screwing things up, politely explain to the customer that for the time being we can't do this." And then they did that. But I've now heard twice from a Best Buy employee that combining gift cards is "illegal." As in,

 

"Awww shit, did you hear about Frank? Feds busted in his door and arrested him last night."

"Oh shit, what did he do?"

"Man, the fool was combining gift cards. Right in the store. Caught him on camera and everything."

"Frank always was a dumb ass."
