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.

If you're on CAG and you're paying 'much more' for a game and not actively taking advantage of price matches for 30/60 days after purchase at BB or getting $10/$20 codes for pre-ordering the game(s)(again, at BB or Amazon), then you're doing it wrong and should have your CAG membership card cut in half and be kicked out the door.:razz::booty:

Pretty sure it was you who called people a joke for thinking returning items not from walmart without receipt is fraud but hell maybe i'm wrong. Just to clarify your other comment, they don't get banned from the store, they just get banned from trading in.

What events trigger a retun ban from Best Buy?

running around naked tossing glitter = ban :)

Damn. Did GS post a picture of me doing that that led to my ban?

I have no problem with price matches, etc what you listed. Flipping ruins it for the average person.

FYI, HDMI cables currently trade in for $4 base at GS.


Shit, I wish they could be traded in at Best Buy; they'd probably take double that if they did. Then turn around and charge $19.99 or more for used generic HDMI cables...would still be a great deal relative to what they ask for new ones :roll:

SPLASH!

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.


Trololol also that's not how the economy works.

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.


How is flipping return fraud? You upset cause people can buy low and trade/sell high? That's how business works. I do it on Glyde practically every day.

Just wanted to post an update on my trade in situation from last night.
http://www.cheapassg...&postcount=4555

Went back tonight and asked to speak to a store mgr. and explained to her what happened. So she went back to the video game kiosk and looked up the game I disputed and pulled it out of the counter. She rerung it and gave me the $13 on a giftcard w/o any hesitation. Glad I did look into it, because I figured I was out that credit.



Wait.. These trade ins are done at a kiosk??

Anyways looks like this is running through next week as well.. Gives me some time to think about what things to trade in.. I pretty much refuse to trade in anything that comes up for $1 or less

1080i is for douchebags

Except the average person seems to be OK with getting $X amount at GS without even taking advantage of the bonus promos or using a PUR card. Otherwise the chain would've seen their profits go down a while ago if people actually investigated what they could get elsewhere for their used games and stopped trading in there.

This is just a case of people who waited far too long to finish a game who are pissed at themselves for not trading them sooner looking for someone else to blame besides their own procrastination. Simple as that.

Shit, I wish they could be traded in at Best Buy; they'd probably take double that if they did. Then turn around and charge $19.99 or more for used generic HDMI cables...would still be a great deal relative to what they ask for new ones :roll:

If I remember correctly, that's what GS charges for generic HDMI cables once they buy em for $4.40 apiece after 10% PUR bonus, which is the ONLY bonus that applies when trading in accessories and consoles.:roll:

So they make a nice $15.59 profit per cable.

Like I've been saying for a while, someone needs to open up a chain called Only Cables and sell just that at the store. Imagine all of the people who were gonna buy a $100 Monster brand cable at BB who would be grateful for being able to buy one for $2-5 a pop instead? You'd make a killing.

Unfortunately there's never been any verification that there is a hard and fast limit per quarter or per year. If it's per year, then a lot of the high volume traders will be SOL and BB may have to revise their policies and limits since I think most normal consumers still equate Gamestop with game trades and may not even know that BB does them yet.

Just like the Kmart Gamer deals, which were advertised ONE time in their weekly circulars, Best Buy is relying on word of mouth. Outside of the deal sites, I don't see very many regular customers trading in games to there.

You don't understand how overhead works?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

If the people who want to trade in their own games are mad because their tiv tanked thanks to flippers, they should stop playing games, because they're playing the wrong ones. seriously, 99% of the games flipped are utter shit.

What Wii or 3DS/DS game that's at $19.99 MSRP brings in the most via trade? I think I'll buy that 3DS this week and get New Super Mario Bros 2 at Toys R Us, which will entitle me to a Wii or 3DS/DS game that's 19.99 for 6 bucks. I have no need for that game, So i would just keep the NSMB2 and trade in the other game to take some of the weight of the 40 bucks I paid for NSMB2. is there a game like that that can maybe have a TIV of 8 or 9 so i can get 16 or 18 back? All the Nintendo Selects seem to be $4 base. Those to mee seemed like good choices for a good TIV, but no dice

You do realize that stealing isn't required to flip,right? Cause you seem to think so by the way you worded this sentence.

It wasn't easy... but I finally found one that matched your criteria. Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion is $19.99 at Toys R Us for the Wii. It will trade in for $8 Base.

Nice, thank you. That would make my NSMB2 30 bucks ( 40 + 6 - 16)

I don't flip myself but generally don't have a problem with those that do unless they're buying up copies of a game somebody might actually want to play. If you can get away with buying Wii shovelware at GS and making a profit at BB, more power to you.

Heads up for anyone trying to trade FIFA soccer for vita to upgrade to the new one. The quoted web price and the store price differ by $8 with the current promo. Online shows $16, in store I got $12. Was told to call customer service for the adjustment and now I'm basically out $8 in credit that I thought I was going to get.

Went to do some trade-ins during lunch break.
Base:
:ps3: Skyrim - $16 (I hope there will be a GOTY edition or I will regret my decision)
:ps3: Deus Ex - $5 (Beaten it after blowout 1.0, great game)
:ps3: Rage - $5 (Not $6 as listed on the website, sad)
:ps3: Final Fantasy XIII-2 - $8 (Finally got through the last boss, which was insane. What is up with games and fucking crappy endings these days...?)

Mathematically Correct.

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

i see rage tiv for $5, where do you see it for $6? i never had problems with tiv on the website reflecting what they give you in store. i guess i am lucky
