First, go here and check if this game is available for you for local pick up. The game is $19.99 (Or $17.99 for best buy gamers club unlocked members):

 

http://www.bestbuy.c... Bass&lp=5&cp=1

 

At the time of this post, amazon is giving $30 trade in credit for the PS3 version of the game. Make sure it's still the case by clicking here, selecvting the ps3 version (then page defaults to 360) and verifying the trade in value on the right side of the page: 

 

http://www.amazon.co...guitar and bass

 

 

If both things are good, submit your amazon trade immediately (This won't last long) and lock it in. When you submit the $30 trade, amazon will mention they will give you an extra $30 credit if you use it towards a dualshock 4 controller. Basically, what it says in this promotion:

 

http://www.amazon.co...ocId=1001420741

 

Once your trade is locked, buy the best buy game. Local pick up is preferred, but if there's none available in your area, you might want to try your luck with shipping. Do lock your amazon trade first thou. 

 

You don't need to trade a guitar or any accesories with the game. The game is simply called "Guitar and bass". That doesn't mean it includes a guitar or a bass. Just that it's a game that teaches you to play......guitar and bass.

 

Be mindful of other fellow CAGs who also might want to get an extra dualshock 4 for themselves, and don't be a d-bag and sumbit 100 rocksmith trades while wiping all best buys of any stock of the game. Just don't abuse it. We can be civil and do our best so in Jack Tretton's words, "Everyone who wants one, gets one" ok?

 

 

Good luck.

Best Buy sells a BB exclusive version of the game so there may be possible issues with a trade in.

You'll be able to tell right away because if the copy originally came from Best Buy, you'll see a yellow "Best But exclusive" logo on the front cover which may come with a different UPC.

Another complication is it comes bundled with a chord. Don't think Best Buy will send you that.

As others have mentioned, BB's system doesn't differentiate between the Best Buy exclusive regular version of Rocksmith and the actual Rocksmith Guitar and Bass game listed for trade on AMZ.  They're both under the same used SKU at BB.  This TIV has been at $30 on AMZ since late last year and I ran into this issue.

 

Also, AMZ trade-in processing will likely bump you down to Acceptable for not including the guitar cable with the game as well (which would only net $21 and not qualify you for the DS4 promotion).  Again, I know this from personal experience.

 

Good luck though...

You got a point. I do know amazon has laxed their policies in this regard lately, to the point their trading banner now reads "Even if you didn't buy them on amazon". Look here:

How did it die? It's still showing $30. (You have to click on the PS3 version. It defaults to 360)

If you cannot find it at BB then the Warehouse has LN copies for 30.44. Not as good, but still a free $29.56 if you need another DS4 anyway.

The big issue with this is BB does not promise cover art of manuals. As such you may not be able to get the full value of the trade-in. But you can always request the game sent back to you if rejected and then return it to BBY (if you are Elite or Elite Plus)

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

So it is possible to return open Pre-owned games?

I gambled. I locked in two copies and found two Best Buys on the way back to my hometown that each had one.

 

*Fingers crossed*

 

 

**EDIT

 

I just realized that this was a bumped thread from a couple weeks ago.

 

Amazon still has the $30 TIV and Best Buy has since dropped the price of the game to only $9.99

 

This deal will be even sweeter for me then if it goes through!

Only 9.99 for the game. One instock at the furthest local BB. Not going to pick up PS4 anytime soon, but still might jump on it for 10.

Might be also out of date but I submitted 2 Vanquish PS3 (at the time TIV was $15.xx each) from GS.  Paid just over $20 after Bday coupons in GS credit to get that DS4 preordered.

YMMV. Check your local Sam's Club.  They have both ps3 and 360 versions of Rock smith Guitar and Bass for $4.81. They also have the first version Guitar only with Cable for the same price. 

If you buy both and send in the G&B with the cable it should be $30.00 credit for $10.00.

On a side note Skylanders for 360 trades in to Amazon for $18.35, also on sale for $9.81 at Sam's Club.  Again YMMV

Best buy $9.99 new versions have exclusive tracks, highly doubt the UPC will match for Amazon trade (non exclusive version).

As to used BBuy copies it might not be a BBuy exclusive edition.....

Even if not still a 10 flip as acceptable is 21ish so even if its just the game in case with no cable, still doubles to 21, just get 2 copys, pay 20 for 40 credit, still gets you the promo if done as one trade in right?

This is dead. Trade in is 5.31

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?"
