As for going anywhere else, I'm perfectly content not going round the rest of the freakin' world.


Of course you are.

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.

:lol: Hopefully those(like me) who got banned once before have learned their lesson and won't go whole hog on trading stuff in and doing iffy flips(like buying a game on sale to trade right back in8-[:-#:-\") or else they'll have to join the military or go back to school to possibly get around the ban the next time.

I love how you don't even have a passport because you're a provincial hayseed, and you have the gall to :rofl: and :roll: at someone else for anything. At no point in your life did anyone teach you what shame was?


I love how IATGC assumes I got a passport just for this sole reason only. Not because I needed to apply for it when I want to travel around the world. :applause:

Great idea. If I wind up banned in the future I'm using my college ID!

some states even allow you to change your driver's license number :)

i agree to a certain point, ppl should just learn their "lesson," but bestbuy made it too in the beginning to go whole hog with trade in credit. I plan to only trade in personal games from now on, with maybe the occassional flip, but will definitely not do more than 1 of the same game. Just need to build up $200-300 in credit to pick up the new releases I want over the next few months.

IATCG,

Hopefully you're not rebanned like I just found myself earlier today. Toss was the first I saw to report being unbanned, then rebanned within a week. I did a trade last monday, then attempted a 2nd one today and the banhammer was loosed again :headache: I only traded 7 games last week, shoulda did more

Yes, because passports are all about value.

I certainly hope I'm not. I've only been doing 1-2 games a clip and have only done 1-2 that I did last year.:cry: That would suck getting the ban notice for simply trading in games you had traded in in a prior year. But for some reason I kept buying Uncharted 3. I think I did two last year and one this year. Actually I just found papers from this year and I was good up till March or April sometime. I did a copy of Uncharted 3 in February as part of a huge trade-in(over $500 after bonus & GCU) where I dumped the majority of my backlog.

Since my local store is one of the ones that adheres to the 'one per game per platform' rule now I've tried to be cautious and not go over that limit on anything.

Passports? That's a new. I thought since they take your fingerprint it doesn't matter if you are using another form of ID?

:bomb:Too bad I already traded my vanilla copy of Skyrim in order to get credit to buy the CE(of which most of the CE stuff is still sitting in the boxes/bags:lol:) or I'd gladly dump it for another $33 something.

College ID wouldn't work as it needs to be a state issued ID (think ID's that you need to get an alcoholic drink). That means passports, drivers license (or state ID - basically a drivers license that isn't a drivers license) and a military ID.

Now, I've moved since I got my last License, so I could always consider getting a license in my new state when my birthday comes around as another option. I think I'll just use my passport though (which I already have).

Does it matter if I bring the case / manual with the game? I'm going to trade in Uncharted 3 but I want to keep the case and manual to add to my Collector's Edition of the game.

The fingerprint is just for crime fighting purposes and local laws. They're not gonna bother with a fingerprint match for bans.

The banned database searches on ID number so that's why people who are banned can trade in again. (Until they get their passport banned as well.)

I haven't traded a game into BBY in over a year, and was thinking about getting back into it when I saw that 100% bonus. But then I opened this thread and saw talks of passports and joining the military.

I think I'll just stick to Gamestop.

I really wish companies would only take games that are complete. Games without cases need to be left to pawnshops/fleamarkets/etc #rant

That's how I weigh whether or not I "need" something is by the value I will get out of it. HDtv for my games bought with gaming credit=good value.

Piece of paper that says I'm from such and such country that I even need now if I wanna go up to Canada thanks to motherfuckin' George W. Bush=shitty value.

You can repeat this till you're blue in the face, but for the average game buyer(meaning NOT people from CAG) they just want something that works. They don't care if it's complete or not.

the only advice i can give you is if you do not want to get a ban, then never trade in duplicates. once you trade in duplicates, you run the risk of getting ban.


Has anyone been banned for trading in two copies of a game though and different transactions?


To only add to the confusion, I've traded in duplicates of games, same system, in a single transaction on at least two occasions and so far I'm okay. If they ever ask, I just say I'm trading in a friend's copy. And these are trades that are >35 days ago since I've gotten the points. I most recently traded in on Sunday so no ban at this point in time. I've also strictly adhered to the 3 per title rule (including across portable) not 3 per title per system. This is what I believe is in the online FAQ and what has been quoted to me by BBY employees. As long as I stay within those boundaries, I figure I'll be safe. So YMMV but still use common sense and try not to draw unnecessary amounts of scrutiny toward yourself. Also splitting stuff up between two stores can't hurt.

About 2 months ago I traded in 3 copies of Transformers: DOTM for Xbox 360 all to the same Best Buy store in the same month.I traded two in one trip and one in another trip.I did trade other games with each trade.I have traded since and everything seems to be fine.
If anyone is wondering why I had 3 of them, I bought them last December for $4.99 a piece when Best Buy was having that big sale with guaranteed Christmas day delivery and I was going to give them out as presents but the crappy shipping Best Buy uses didn't get them to me until Jan.2

I really don't care if my passport gets banned. I just need to get rid of all these B2G1 wii games from gamestop before then LOL. Best Buy should be like Gamestop and "take on all comers". If they just fixed their TIVs during promos flipping would not be an issue. Then again this is the company that just sent me almost 20 $5 codes for items backordered. Quite a few of my b2g1 orders got me 2 of those codes.

No its still 100%, if you click on the link in the OP its states it at the bottom of the page. I always go by that.
