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.

^It was $6 this morning, and I got excited because it jumped up $1, but now it's back to $5.

Does the free Steel Diver with a purchase of any 3DS system include the 3DS XL? And is that deal also in stores..Thinking about getting a XL in the morning.


The website states any 3DS Console purchase gets Steel Diver for sale so I went into the store and they just did an override on my purchase. Rather have a game than that damn bulky case.

When confused by the OP, just go to the BB website and onto the page for game trade-ins and it'll say what the current promo(s) are.

I got two of my new PS3 games in from amazon, thank you best buy 100% trade in bonus. I bought Heavy Rain Directors Cut and 3D Dot Game Hero's for $36.94 still have around $38 + change left. I found 3D Dot Game Hero's cheaper on gamestop and some other site, so they issued me a $5 promotional certificate that will automaticcaly be applied to my accout on my next purchase at checkout.

When Best Buy first started doing trade ins, I once spend over 2.5 hours doing a single trade. At that time, if you did more than 40-50 games at a time, the computer wouldn't let you finish the trade. The employee tried to run my 100+ game trade in twice before he called someone (a call which took 20 min) to find out that he needed to break up the trade into smaller lots. Thankfully he had a super good attitude and I didn't have anywhere else to be.

Ok, so I was banned long ago from bby for trade ins. I did a lot. I mean a lot a lot. Now I went in other day an my gf was trading in some of her old wii games. The store manager was staring us down and sent people over to check on her. Made my gf feel like crap. So she got her giftcard and left.

So today I go in and confront the manager about this. I'm told to my face I've stole thousands from the company, and I'm not allowed to trade in baned. I told her it was my gf doing trades not me. Again, then I'm told I was told by district LP I can't trade. So I told her I never was. Anyhow after this I leave.

She then goes on to tell my friend that works there that I'm a felon, and I'm under investigation and crap. I'm seriously annoyed right now. She was slandering me to who all knows who, and calling me a felon? Sure all the trades may be frowned apon, but it's not a felony. I only did what the system left me.

Anyone else who was a major flipper get this treatment, and or threaten you are under investigation? I want to call her HR and complain about slander, but I'm wondering if I should just drop it? Anyone?

I heard about that, but it never happened to me when doing the spindles of 75+ PS2 sports games. Maybe they fixed it by mid 2011.

They have prepaid visa cards, which you can put anywhere from $20-$200 on. It has an activation fee of $5.95 though. I've gotten these 3 times with $200 each already from credit. You need to register them online though so you can use them online.


I thought you couldn't get those with just trade in credit? I asked about getting them one time when I have $50 from trades and was told no.

It's YMMV. The system allows it but it's up to the employee.

Ahh thanks DC, nothing I really would need it for but would be nice to be able to.

I asked at CS and the guy said that employees weren't able to so maybe I'll try this week.

IIRC, they have to hit F11 or something to allow the transaction to proceed.

it's simple just tell them to try it before telling you that you can't pay for it that way

I think the limit was somewhere above 80 games. It happened to me back then.

It took so long to manually look up all those ps2 sports games back then that I ended up printing the UPCs on the gamestop sleeves. It took a couple hours but I felt like it was better to spend that time at home vs milling around attracting attention at BB. I have a couple dozen left of those I will be trading in..just to get my money back instead of 300%. Money is money...just got a 3dsxl, ordered a nexus 7, and am thinking of getting some bose quiet comforts (those beats are just too stupid faddish looking).

2 different BestBuy employees that I've done trade-ins with said that the 100% bonus trade-in will last until October and flashed the monitor to me to show it. I guess it's gonna last for a long time.

:-s:-? So you got like $6.15 per game? Please tell me you paid $3 each for those games and there weren't any recent release titles in there. Otherwise that was a HORRIBLE deal. Hopefully you're at least Gamers' Club Unlocked and got an additional 10% on TOP of the base value of all of the trades.

Picked up the Uncharted combo pack from Best Buy a couple months ago for $20. traded Uncharted 1 a while back and just got $16.80 by trading in Uncharted 2 today.

It feels really good when Best Buy pays me to play video games.
