Just saw this in the ad from the sunday paper. You have to pay $5 for the preorder, and you get $15 of MUT content probably when you pick up the game. It doesnt list any restrictions, just says not available in all stores. It does state video game must be in original packaging and customer must be 18 years of age or older.

 

Ive noticed their trade in values seem to be based off best buy, as they are usually a few cents more or less. This is in store only i assume.

 

to check values or find out if your store is participating (blue find your walmart square next to search)

If values are correct, Mario Kart is listed at $40...Do you really think they'd give $60?

watch dogs is right there too, they are wal mart employees, so probably. they either 1. dont care or 2. dont know any better. also murdered soul suspect is $33.xx, 50 bucks with bonus.

I'm really interested in getting Madden, but I don't know if trading Battlefield in for 33 is worth it =/ With MUT content I guess its kind of like 15 dollars for it but I'm sure I'll pass.

$60 for Watch Dogs? What? Do they take retailer exclusive editions?

Which games?

 

Also have to ask, is there anything to prevent someone from trading in MK8, buying another copy, and then trading that new copy again?

Looks like its worth going to BB to pick up some copies of Infamous SS used with the sale going on.

Could you explain how the process went? Is everything done automatically or did it require some override? I haven't traded in any games to WM before so I'm curious

Pretty much we log in, look up the games, make sure all the games look clean and decent condition. Then it'll add up the amount. After that we need personal ID (this may vary by state) and we have you sign something saying that you understand it's all the property of CExchange (blah blah etc.) After that the money is given to you in a print out that works the same as a Walmart gift card. The gift card can be used at any Walmart or on Walmart.com.

 

I haven't done a promo + trade-in yet, so we'll see how that works...

Thanks. I assumed the trade in was done in the customer service area but I just called one of my local stores that participates and they told me to go to the Electronics area to do the trade.

 

I'm more concerned about getting the bonus to apply though. I hope the system automatically applies it. Hoping to get more clarification from Darby27 before I try.

When they first go into the trade in program it has a prompt if the customer is doing the madden promo. They choose yes or no and then click continue. If they ticked yes and hit continue it automatically adds 50% as they add games to the transaction.

Really simple and well done. 100% better than target/bb promos.

They try their darnest to make it stupid and simple for us. One thing I will say though is that the computers I use are absolutely AWFUL, so exercise some patience when it comes to that. Mine freeze up and fail on a regular basis, in addition to making me use a trackball that sticks and a keyboard that regularly doesn't take inputs the first key press.

 

I'll be working tomorrow so if there are any further questions just ask em and I'll do what I can.

I can confirm this.  I was there early in the morning and they didn't even have the madden pre order cards out.   Doesn't really matter though, the bonus is done on the trade in register, not the register where you buy the pre order card.   The Walmart guy let me watch the screen and I saw how it worked.  Like the poster above said, after the employee logs into the trade in program, a prompt pops up asking if you are participating in the madden pre order bonus.   Click yes and then continue.   After that, the bonus values are applied automatically.  

 

AND YES  the values after bonus for games like watch dogs and UFC are currently around $60.    Easy $20 flip if you use a birthday coupon at gamestop.   Dark Souls 2 (x360) is a nice credit mover from bestbuy to Walmart if you have GCU.

EA UFC is on sale at BB this week for $50. With GCU it should be $40

 

WM is giving $40.80 base so $61.20 after 50% bonus

What is the Walmart limits for trades on how many per title/platform? Can you trade multiple copies of the same game in the same transaction? I haven't traded there since the beginning of the program and remember reading they made some changes.

Edit: what about retailer exclusive editions? I have a Target edition of Watch Dogs PS4, will I be able to trade that in?

I think they discontinued trade ins in Utah completely for whatever reason :/ tried to trade in some games a week or two ago and ones that did it in the beginning are no longer doing it.
