I traded a disc only nsmb Wii for $16 base or $24 with bonus. I think this game has actually gone up in value from $13.

I traded Mortal Kombat for vita from the 9.99 gamestop sale and got base $13 total $19.50. Not bad that I almost doubled my money!

what are the chances of twisted metal's tiv going up after the promo ends? I'm wondering if I should trade it in to take advantage of the buy2g1 this week.

I'm sure this was asked plenty of times be4 but can I trade in multiple copies of the same game and still get a trade in bonus?

And bad question but if I trade in a game worth $10 than I will get the 50% trade in bonus to make it $20. And is that credit or cash?

Yes, as long as it is within the 3 of the same game per platform limit.

are you for real? or just trolling? bestbuy never gives cash for trade-in games. maybe you should try gamestop if you want cash for your games

Obviously a legitimate question. Thanks for the answer despite the sass.

I hope you're trolling. If not, check your math.

actually you can find most of your answers to your questions in the first page of the op, like example to the trade in limit, Is there a limit to how many games I can trade in? Officially, Best Buy only accepts 3 copies of a game, per system (i.e. you could trade in 3 copies of a game for Xbox, 3 copies for PS3 and 3 for Wii). This is for sure the online policy, but it varies in stores. Some people have reported being banned for trading in more than 3 copies of games, others have done so frequently without issue. Obviously it is YMMV, but do so at your own risk. Lately some people have been told the policy is 1 game per system (i.e. you could trade in 1 copy of a game for Xbox, 1 for PS3 and 1 for Wii), and have been actively turned down when trading in more than one copy. Whether this is actually something they are banning for or if it is just what employees are being told to follow to limit multiples is unknown. Trade multiples at your own risk.

It's YMMV. What kinda stickers perse? Only place I know anymore that may put stickers on discs is Redbox and maybe Netflix and I don't think any of those sell their games as of yet.

Netflix and Redbox don't sell their games in a traditional sense. but if you lose or keep the game for too long, they will charge you the price of the game and you get to keep it lol.

Thanks fir the replys. Not sure, I purchased a few games from some1 locally today and one of the ps3 game has a center ring sticker on it... The lable is darken out entirely with a black perminate marker. Other than that it's complete.. Do redbox rent out complete games? So I guess no one here has been lucky trading in any ame with sticker yet..

yeah, from your description of it, it will mostly likely be rejected, but you can always try to trade it in. you never know, the worst they can say is no

It's in transit. I checked yesterday.;) So sometime this week I should have it.:D

When I was doing 3x everything, I'd almost always take the GS stickers off the games. I think the only time I said Fuck it and left them on was the 3x many $.99 :ps2: sports game lot I brought directly from GS the one time.:lol: Surprisingly 90-95% of them were complete and mint too.:-#

In other words, someone likely stole a Redbox game by keeping it and maybe using a stolen credit card to 'pay' for that rental and then sold it to you.:-# I see some of them every so often on Craigslist here and I just chuckle.

I always had Best Buy accepted sticker from a local video rental franchise. It was similar to Redbox sticker. I gotten some from GS while I was transferring credit from GS to BB. I've done it multiply times and haven't gotten rejected yet.

Nah. I opted not to waste my time on them. I'd probably only look for someplace to trade both if I bought them since I have ZERO desire to play either.

YEah, possibly. I was bummed out when I noticed the sticker on the game; he listed that all the games were good condition . :drool: the price was a good so I just looked passed it.

(Vita) Mortal Kombat (bought for $9.99 at GS, traded for $27.30 with GCU)


Just bumping that Vita trade in value from the 100%....

Yes, it's 50%. I should've added that isn't current. Someone was remembering what the value was when they were doing 100%. I figured I'd bump it in this one, instead of starting some kind of flippers war in the other one.
