I hope the DS trade in values remain in tact. Got some DS games I gotta trade in, in the next few days.

Just a heads up guys, It looks like the Best Buy Trade estimator just updated. Wii game trade in prices are starting to crash, so if you have Wii games you better trade them in quick. I was going to trade in like 5 or 6 Wii games soon and i just lost at least 2 dollars on each game just now. For example The conduit was 6 dollars this past morning and now it is only 4. Wii Music was 6 and is now 4. Carnival games was 5 now 4...


Sucks to hear. Maybe they found the GS to BB thread? ;)

Probably just due to the large number of trade-ins.

Don't forget The Conduit, too. :cry:

Tell me about it--I lost out on about $15 by waiting until today. :cry: :lol:

Oh well, at least I've got 12 other Wii games (plus Yoostar 2 :360:) to flip whose TIVs didn't drop, and it's not like I had a chance to get to a BBY before today. :bouncy:

Tell me about it one day my Limbo/Trials HD/Splosion Man Triple Pack is worth $8, next day it dropped down to $4. I'm glad I got it on sale from newegg for $10 so not much of a loss and everything else i traded in offset it with a slight profit. Wii games are like the kia of the video game trade in world.

:lol:@ people who waited till Thursday of the first week of a good promo expecting values to hold until now....:roll:

If you expect to max out your trade value, you gotta go in day one before everybody else with those games(or buying those games solely to flip) figures out that they could get a decent amount back for them.:razz:

If you don't, well then there's no one to blame but yourself.:D

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

The art of flipping is like day trading. The goal is to unload your entire portfolio before the day ends. This ensures maximum profit as well as sleeping without a worry.

I hope all you flippers get banned. Why not put your efforts into getting a real job to help the economy instead of taking value from it.

Your assumption is illogical. You assume that having a decent paying job and engaging in the art of flipping is mutually exclusive; clearly a flawed statement.

There are many people sick of reading about how flippers take something and get free money. Tjhis ruins the trade in value for people who just want to get fair value for the game the originally bout for much more money than a trade in value. Do us a favor and stop posting this garbage. Or go the the CheapAssFlipper site for it. Leave us alone for the real deals.

Then to read about someone complain about getting banned. I mean how do you get banned from a store. You must have done something very wrong for that.

Not, these are flippers saying returning something without a receipt is fraud. Which is ironic because that is exactly what they are doing flipping a game.

I needed 3 copies of Hannah Montana: The Movie for my 3 Wiis and 3 Tv's all on at the same time - for only an hour (or 30 seconds).

I believe you should answer his question in 3 parts:
(1) Yes, I am the one advocating returning games not bought from Walmart to Walmart
(2) I am convinced that flippers are the ones committing return fraud
(3) The whole situation is therefore, ironic

Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.
